SHAKEN Hopeful* of Test Ban Failure Viewed as Disaster WASHINGTON (AP)— President Kennedy said yesterday that failure to ban nuclear shots—and he Is not at all hopeful of an agreement to ban them— would lead to more tests and "a great disaster for the interests of all concerned. There were signs at a news conference that the President was succeeding in soothing unrest in the Pentagon over his decision to drop Adm. George W. Anderson as chief of naval operations. He was gratified, he said, that Anderson has agreed to accept another unspecified "position of high responsibility" in federal service. In the realm of International affairs, Kennedy made one serious point after another. ,"No, I am not hopeful," he said, for working out an agreement with Moscow to bar nuclear weapons tests. As to whether a lack of agreement would lead to another round of testing by both sides, Kennedy * said he thinks that would happen, and: "I would think that would be ... a great disaster for the interests of all concerned ... if we don't get it now I would think generally perhaps the genie is out of the bottle and we will not never (sic) get him back in." KENNEDY declined to say whether the Organization of American States should apply diplomatic or economic sanctions against the Francois Duvalier regime in Haiti, He suggested waiting to see what an OAS peacekeeping mission accomplishes in the next few days. Switching from the Caribbean to the Mediterranean area, the President said the United States supports "the security of both Israel and her neighbors." In the event of direct or indirect aggression, he said, the policy of the United States has been and will be to back appropriate measures in the United Nations and to "adopt other courses of action on our own to prevent or to put a stop to such aggression." Kennedy had a little fun with one questioner, who said Rep. AP Wirephoto AT HONEYMOON RANCH^Gov.

Builder Says Interstate 8 Job 'Doomed for Probe' By BEN COLE Republic Washington Bureau WASHINGTON—A 30-year veteran of road-building vowed yesterday he knew during-his first hour at work on Interstate 8 (U.S. 80) in Arizona that the project would start a congressional investigation. "And two years later, here we are." said Roy C. Lawrence, Tucson, who ran the asphalt plant on the 15.5-mile eastern half of the construction between Mohawk, and Sentinel. Harry Brannon, also of Tucson another experienced construction man, told the House public works subcommittee it was the most dif ficult "in my dull lifetime" ol road-building, "and I've workec on every highway in and out of Tucson." BRANNON bossed the laying of asphalt for Thomas E. Moore, Tucson, subcontractor. He said bad road bed, bad material, and deficient asphalt botched the job. Lawrence recalled working in New Mexico just before going on Interstate 8. A congressional investigation of road4>ullding there was just finished at the time. His first day at Sentinel, he recalled, "I said the job would wind up in Washington before this committee, and two years later here we are." Moore and Charles A. Carter, formerly of Flagstaff, both said they went broke subcontracting on Interstate 8. Moore had the asphalt subcontract under the Ash crushing plant. Anttila and Carter now work for a company in Anaheim, Calif. Moore said he got $1.65 a ton to process and lay asphalt on the Sentinel job, $1.59 on the Aztec. He had to shut down after the first load when the road bed was found faulty. The delay lost him $9,135.19. He eventually lost $47,000 instead of reaping the $25,000 profit he expected. the by ton Co., inc., Tucson, and Carter was supplying crushed rock. Also a witness yesterday was George Anttila, 1830 W.

Sometimes his own rollers had to smooth the road bed ahead. THEN JOHN C.

As the pressures mounted on President Francois Duvalier's regime, rumors flew In both Port-au-Prince and the neighboring Dominican Republic that the doctor-dictator was preparing to flee the country. On the diplomatic front, the crisis swirled into the U.N. Security Council with Haiti demanding that the 11-nation body order a halt to what the Haitians called repeated threats 'of aggression by the Dominican Republic. The Dominican Republic, which shares the Island of His- panioia with Haiti, denied the charges and proposed that the dispute be left in the hands of the Organization of American States. The debate will continue today. President Kennedy at his Washington news conference said he must refuse to say anything on Haiti until a new group from the OAS baa a chance to see what It can do to settle the crisis. At the heart of the many-sided crisis is an attempt by Duvalier to crush underground opposition bent on toppling his regime. His hunt for conspirators brought him to the edge of war with the Dominican Republic. The Dominicans charged that he was violating the traditional Latin American safeguard of asylum in foreign embassies for political oppositionists. IN THE background is evident U.S. concern lest the deadly feud between Duvalier and his opponents create a dangerous vacuum In Haiti that could be quickly exploited by Communists, Haiti is only 50 miles from Fidel Castro's Cuba. While troubled over this possible outcome, the United States has also made it plain in recent (Continued on Page 2, Col. 6) he refused to material even spector who "knew his who quit after 15 Don Burton, weeks.

The 81-year-old pontiff said nothing about it in conducting a general audience for 10,000 persons yesterday. Persons at the audience said Pope John did not look well, but spoke .at length and seemed cheerful. Without explanation, the Vatican newspaper J'Osservatore Romano taid Pope John will not make trips later this month to the MonteCassino Abbey and the Pompei Shrine. Vatican sources had said last weekend that the pontiff would go to MonteCassino 78 miles southeast of Rome, on May 23 for the consecration of an altar. The independent II Tempo was the source of the report of the Pope's relapse. It said there was alarm in the Vatican, but his condition improved Tuesday and "no longer causes any fear."

Goldwater." The celebration, to raise money or the Republican Party, will be n the Sheraton-Park, having the city's biggest banquet hall. The party appears to be a sellout with 400 expected, twice the original estimate. The first $300,000 of the "gate" will go to the Senate Campaign Committee for ts 1963 budget, the rest to the 3OP Congressional Campaign Committee. Party members were disap- »inted Wednesday to learn for- ner president Dwight D. Eisen- lower, advertised beforehand as an honor guest, might miss the jparty. He had advised of having a long-standing commitment but that he would try to change it. The Republicans hope, nonetheless, to hear from Gov. George Romney of Michigan and Gov. William Scranton of Pennsylvania. Goldwater headed the GOP Senatorial Campaign Committee in I960, and the dinner ostensibly will honor him for his effort. < Brief King Jail Stay Stirs Ire BIRMINGHAM,Ala. (UPI)—A shaky off-again, on-again "truce" in Birmingham's explosive racial battle apparently was salvaged last night when integration leader Dr. Martin L. King Jr. was freed from jail. The truce was announced early yesterday afternoon and was applauded by President Kennedy. But within a few hours after the chief executive spoke, King was convicted and jailed on a month-old charge of leading a segregation protest march. His arrest caused confusion among other Negro leaders, some of whom said the turn of events negated the earlier agreement with white leaders. But hardly had the Jail door slammed on King before it was announced that he and an aide, the Rev. Ralph Abernathy, had been released on bonds of $2,500 each. King said after he was released that he was still hopeful that a settlement in the city's racial crisis could be reached today. One of those who reacted angrily to the jailing of King was his brother, the Rev. A. D. King. "THIS (THE jailing) makes it bvious," A. D. King said. "City ffidals are not willing to cooperate. The negotiations are off nd plans are being made for the biggest mass demonstration this city has ever seen." But the Rev. Fred Shuttlesworth, leader of the Birmingham desegregation campaign, took a calmer view. He said the Jailing af King "does not destroy our faith in the people we are dealing with." King, mastermind of the massive racial protest! which have brought the arrests of 2,200 Negroes in this steel city, was jailed on a parading without a permit charge. The charge stemmed from a protest march King led on Good Friday. King and 26 associates got the maximum sentence: 180 days in jail and $100 fine. Bond for most of those convicted was set at $500, but City Judge C. H. Bown specified bond of $2,500 each for King. R. V. Fulton and Abernathy. President Kennedy led off his news conference with his comment on the Birmingham situation, WITHOUT BEING specific as to what had been promised, he praised the city's business community for promising what he said were "substantial steps" that would "begin to meet the needs of the Negro community." Just as the truce announcement brought immediate easing of tensions, the jailing of King stirred Ditterness and some confusion among the Negro leadership.
