(AP) An Atomic Energy Commission itaff report contends that the United States is falling behint the Soviet Union and the rest of the world in the quest to harness peacefully the power of the hydrogen bomb, it was learne< today. The report, prepared by Atomic Energy Commission icientists and made available to The Associated Press, termec the situation "alarming" and urged the federal government to boost research spending by 1! per cent annually over the next five years. The scientists said that since 1962 the nation's investment of money and manpower in the development of a thermonuclear fusion reactor has dropped from «ne-half to one-fifth of the total world investment. This- type of .research, the Scientists' said, could provide mankind with a new source of energy that can.last for. some 20 billion years. They warned that If the world's power needs multiply by a thousandfold in the next century — as some reports predict -4- present fuel sources would be- 1 :burned out within decades. ' It was further learned that the report has been reviewed by the AEC and will be forwarded to the Joint Congressional Atomic Energy Committee. Amasa S. Bishop, assistant director of the AEC's controlled thermonuclear research program, told a newsman, however, that the commission has made some key changes In the study. Bishop declined to elaborate. According to the report, the Daily Record Weather . - Testerdsy'8 high—9fl Ownteht low— 16 Prtelpltatlon prevloui 24 hours (to T ».m. today)—none Precipitation Jan. 1 to date—28.38 Sunset today—7:16 fiunrlse tomorrow—4:55 This Date A Tear Afo Yesterday's high—92 Overnight low—73 ' '• Precipitation Jan. 1 to date—28.84 Traffic Accidents Cars driven by Benny Richard Eoff of Blytheville, James E.

Soviets are now carrying on 37 per cent of the world's peaceful thermonuclear research, compared with 20 per cent for the United States and 43 per cent among the rest of the world. "If this decline in stature relative to the rest of the world is allowed to continue, it is obvious that the controlled thermonuclear research program in this nation will soon deteriorate to a secondary role," the report saya. A key factor in the decline, the scientists assert, has been a "static and largely inflexible budget" for fusion reactor research. * ¥ * The United States is spending $21.5 million on peaceful thermonuclear studies this year, compared with $7.09 billion in the space race. In 1960, the AEC budgeted $30.95 million for the program and the figures have been dropping ever since. 'As a result," says the report, 'there as been a. severe curtailment of the normal influx of new people with fresh ideas. Another result of the recent fiscal policies has been the lack of both speed and flexibility of adapting or acquiring equipment to test new ideas which have originated here and abroad. "There has necessarily been a tendency to continue studies with equipment that is becoming outdated, in an attempt to obtain maximum return from prior investment." By contrast, the AEC was told, Russia, Great Britain, West Germany and France have forged ahead during the past several years with new devices and facilities and a vigorous youthful staff. So have other nations such as Japan and Italy. Commenting on the report, Rep. Chet Holifield, D-Calif., chairman of the Joint Commit- tee on Atomic Energy, said the thermonuclear project and oth er long range AEC programs had been curtailed because of war costs in Viet Nam. * * * "I think they're damned lucky to be getting what they have with a far out project such, as theirs. We've curtailed pro grams that are much closer t( being realized. So I can't gei excited about it," he said. Staff recommendations to the AEC called for: — A 15 per cent annual in crease over the next five years in normal operation funds plus up to 73 million a year more for building large new experimental devices. - Greater coordination between research laboratories en gaged in thermonuclear fusion research. .— Increasing the scientific manpower force in the ther monuclear program.

TOKYO (AP) — Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei A. Gromyko will arrive here July 24 for a week visit during which he is to sign a consular treaty with Japan, Foreign Ministry sources said today. Gromyko will be the first Soviet foreign minister to visit this country since the end of World War II. A spokesman for Epstein's I company, Nems Enterprises jLtd., said: "The aim will be to find out who was to blame for what. It is too early to say definitely if anybody will be sued or even if these are ground for legal action. But this is a definite possibility." The Beatles returned to London Friday from New Delhi and got a screaming welcome from 200 girl fans. CAIRO (AP) - Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi said today India has no intention of changing its current policy of maintaining friendly relations with both the United States and the Soviet Union. Mrs. Gandhi said in an interview that India has never made political concessions to any nation in return for economic aid. The prime minister who leaves for Yugoslavia Sunday after concluding talks with President Gamal Abdel Nasser, is expected to try to work out a Viet Nam peace formula during her current tour which includes a trip to moscow.

Whether or not they can see to the end of the rainbow yet, Raines and McKinnon are convinced that their partnership is bound to come into a pot of gold. And the really glilering thing about it is the fact that a bargain has been sealed between government and local enterprises that could j>et a precedent for future such collaboration. Interestingly enough, both Raines and McKinnon remarked yesterday about how bright the sun was shining down on Manila. Rains fell elsewhere in the country, but not on Manila. Well, it just might bi an omen. Execution Is Stayed LITTLE ROCK (AP) - U Gov.

(AP)-The co-ordinator of the Christ of the Ozarks statue has said there's a possibility the statue's sculptor will do a statue of Gen. Douglas Mac- Artiiur. Charles F. Robertson, said the Elna M. Smith Foundation, which sponsored the Christ statue, had no more commission for Emmet Sullivan after he put the finishing touches on the seven-story statue on Magnetic Mountain here. "It is our hope and prayer," however, Robertson said, "that certain individuals within the range of our acquaintance will fulfill a tentative plan they have made to commission Mr. Sullivan to do a 20-foot figure of the man whom we consider the greatest American of this century—Gen. Douglas MacArthur." He said if built, the sti..je would be in Arkansas, since Jams Airlines ByRAYKOHN NEW YORK (AP) - Thousands" of stranded travelers sought substitute transportation .today the second day of a strike by mechanics against five of the nation's major airlines. 1 Bus and train schedules were stepped up in most areas to relieve the passenger jam created by the grounding Friday of (0 per'cent of; United States passenger planes. •'"•The strike ;by the AFL-CIO International -. Association of Machinists closed down Eastern, .National; United, Northwest, and Trans Word airlines. Under instructions from President Johnson, both sides were summoned to resume talks today in Washington. The 35,000 machinists walked out in a contract deadlock over wages and fringe-benefits. At New York's Kennedy Airport, 757 flights were called off Friday causing a rush to the ticket windows of American, Pan American, Northeast and Delta airlines, not hit by the strike. The same situation existed at 231 cities across the country. But, as an agent of one operating airline said, "You name it and we don't have it." Reports from Portland, Ore., and Seattle showed bus lines and railroads running full to the East. The crowds were sparse at Portland International Airport, with one ticket agent saying, "I guess they all got the word." . Three:.lines in the Far West were still operating — West Coast, Western, and Pacific but they principally, are north- south carriers. Still, they too were reported loaded in the Seattle area. One man booked passage from Seattle to Los Angeles via Pan American to Honolulu in order to get home. More than 100 servicemen returning home from trans- Pacific points, including Viet Vam, were bussed from the Seattle-Tacoma area to Mc- cbord AFB and flown by Military Airlift Command to Travis AFB in California. Often hardest hit by the shutdown were servicemen, many of hem due back at their bases after leaves. Most were traveling on a half-fare standby basis in which they 'get seats on planes only if there are no full- extra Omaha-Denver flights, and said it will add Kansas City- Omaha flights if needed. Ozark Airlines announced adding of • flight to Chicago. Braniff Airways said it anticipated no trouble in handling its air traffic to Minneapolis and Kansas City. Omaha reported, no known stranded travelers. Meanwhile, military personnel and materiel was still being moved by air, and" air mail was shifted to non-struck airlines and railroads. . Beauties and baseball players suffered alike in the transportation emergency. Thirty-two Miss Universe contestants, headed for Miami from Washington. D.C., had to take a bus to New York. From there they got aboard a Northeast Airlines plane. In San Francisco, two other beauty queens, en route to the same contest, managed passage on a non-struck airline" but had to leave their chaperones behind. As for major league baseball teams, the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Chicago White Sox own their own planes. But Blake Cullen, traveling secretary of the Chicago Cubs, said the club may have to go back to the "old times, taking an overnight sleeper." : Charter flight companies were being swamped with requests for planes, mostly from corporations wishing to soeed their executives and salesmen on business trips. A convention of 25,000 Lion Club members ends today in New York, with a convention official saying, "We're going crazy with the strike. Some members will stay for a while with friends. Some are renting cars." Still other New York C|ty visitors returned to their hotels Friday after checking out and meeting disappointment at airports. ' In San Francisco, some 100.000 Shriners were winding up their convention with thousands wondering how they'll get home. Little Rock birthplace. was MacArt'hur's PACKAGE MARKED "HAIR" GREENSBORO, Ky. (AP)-In looking through the home food freezer, Mrs. Sam Moore spotted a package with the word "hair" scrawled on the wrapping paper in her husband's handwriting. She knew her husband was a poor speller but the word still had her stumped. So she asked Sam what it was. "That some game I shot," he explained. "I wasn't sure how to spell 'rabbit' so I just wrote 'hair!' " drums rocketed like mammoth roman candles across the mile- wide Arthur Kill to Staten Island. * * * The scene of Friday's blaze was about five miles south of the Kill Van Kull, another har- >or channel. Two tankers col- ided there June 16 with the loss of 33 lives in the explosion of naphtha carried by one of them. Howard Cast,, senior vice (resident of Hess Oil and Chem- cal Co., owners of the storage area, estimated damage at !250,000. leaves were being extended to travel-trapped servicemen who ?ot in touch with their bases. At Philadelphia International Airport, 213 Friday flights were cancelled — meaning about ,>800 would-be passengers were left on the ground. Spokesmen for the Pennsylvania Railroad and Greyhound bus ines both said, however, they were adding no extra trains or buses. Farther south, the Chesa- jeake & Ohio and Baltimore & 3hio railroads reported a boom n business, and Greyhound said Business was up one-third of its normal weekend customers. The C&O and B&O roads posted the following message in cars pressed into extra service: "Wecome to our grounded airline friends.

Robinson said that about 11 years ago his wife, Charity, 66, set up separate houeskeeping il his house at Ocala, Fla., aV thought he paid the bills. He said she cooked meals fot the dog but not for him. Circuit Court Judge D.

At' Pittsburgh, Pa., four to five times the normal passenger traffic load was reported at that city's Pennsylvania Railroad terminal. A traveler's aid worker summed up the hectic situation by saying, "It's been hell here." A railroad spokesman said, "We're utilizing every bit of equipment we have, and all trains out of here are fully booked up." Some 465 union members in Pittsburgh struck against the four major carriers which operate 207 flights carrying an average of 9,300 passengers daily at Greater Pittsburgh Airport. At St. Louis, Mo., Ozark Airlines announced it was pressing its new DC9 jet into service one week ahead of schedule, and said it will add 20 extra flights daily to handle increased numbers of passengers. Railroads reported a 40 per cent increase n passenger loads on departing trains, while Greyhound bus said its business was up 10 per cent.
