ft' 14 THE OTTAWA HERALD Wednesday, February 6, 1963 Still Trying To Get Through To Moscow " By ENDRE MARION WASHINGTON (AP) - Whenever Dean Rusk, the secretary of state, has something urgent to tell to David Bruce, the U.S. ambassador to Britain, he can pick up the telephone and talk to the diplomat in London in seconds. When the White House or the State Department has a message, coded or uncoded, for the embassy in London, it can send it by direct teletype. This is what the Kennedy administration wants to achieve in its communications with the U.S. Embassy in Moscow. Presently Rusk can do two things if he wants to send word to Foy D. Kohler, ambassador to Moscow. He may put through a long distance call—just as anyone else does who has some business in the Soviet capital, or he can send a coded cable through commercial channels. Once in Moscow, it may or may not be delivered promptly. The problem of better communications with U.S. diplomatic missions around the world, and especially with Moscow, became an urgent issue during last fall's Cuban crisis when so much depended on fast and accurate exchanges with Soviet Premier Khrushchev. President Kennedy said at a recent news conference "speed is very desirable, so we are hoping we can get instantaneous communication" with Moscow. There was immediate speculation that Kennedy had in mind a special telephone, a direct line between the White House and the Kremlin. . Nothing so dramatic was considered. Khrushchev does not speak English, and Kennedy does not speak Russian. What Kennedy had in mind was much simpler: to send a message to Khrushchev—or, for that matter, to any other head of govern- ment—through normal diplomatic channels, but with a speed worthy of the nuclear age. After the Cuban crisis Kennedy and Rusk gave orders that the State Department, together with other agencies, study what should be done to improve the situation. The study—a hush-hush operation—is still going on. William H. Orrick Jr., deputy undersecretary of state for administration, is in charge. A group of communications experts from government agencies and private industry meets regularly behind doors guarded by Marines. The United States made two suggestions to the Soviet Union. It proposed that the State Department be permitted to have a direct commercial leased wire to its Moscow embassy, and secondly, that the embassy be permitted to operate a radio transmitter. Moscow has given no answer yet. People In The News By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Rep. Richard H. IMton, D- Tenn., recalls that when he jokingly threatened to write a letter of complaint to his congressman, an airline stewardess told him, "Go ahead, it won't do you any good." That happened last December as Fulton was flying home from Washington as a congressman- elect. He asked the American Airlines stewardess if dinner would be served. No, she said, and thet started their verbal exchange. The other day Fulton told a Chamber of Commerce meeting in Nashville about the incident. Who should be in the audience but an American Airlines official, who later wrote Fulton a note. "You will be happy to know that dinner will be served on our Flight 433 beginning Feb. 6," it said. Author John Dos Passes, arriving in Charlottesville to become the University of Virginia's writer in residence, said America is experiencing a "dead period in constructive intellectual or political thought, but something differ ent may be just around the corner." Americans, he told an inter viewer, "should start using their heads and produce new ideas for politicians to use." Kenneth Bach, an agricultural economist, believes the Southern states have a better chance than the rest of the nation when it comes to trading with the European Common Market. At a meeting of the Associa tion of Southern Agricultural Workers in Memphis, Tenn., Bach said the Common Market nations need cotton, rice and soybeans- products grown in the South—bul that Northern products such as wheat, feed grains and livestock are produced in Europe.

Predicts Liquor Bill Passage TOPEKA (AP)—A bill allowing sale of liquor by the drink in hotels and restaurants will be signed into law, a spokesman for the Kansas Motel and Hotel Association predicted Tuesday. Eugene Hiatt, legislative agent for the hotel-motel group, said the bill would be introduced by a committee, would pass the Legislature and be signed by Gov. John Anderson. He made his remarks at a news conference after the association presented its proposal bill to the Federal and State Affairs Committee of the State Senate. He said the association believes its proposal will create a $71 million-a-year industry in the state and 5,700 new jobs. The association estimated it would produce more than $1 million in state and local license revenue and nearly $1.8 million in additional sales taxes. The plan was cited also as a lure to conventioneers and tourists. To qualify, a restaurant would have to have accommodations for at least 30 patrons. A hotel would JO-DA* flMMMTMf OUftOOK ••'''.' t Would Create Economic Development Department SO SO TEMPERATURE — Maps based on those provided by U. S.

Pearson Will Go To Geneva WASHINGTON (AP) - Sen. James B. Pearson, R-Kan., will leave Thursday for Geneva to attend sessions of the United Nations conference on the application of science and technology for the benefit of the less developed areas. He was appointed an official U.S. Senate observer at the conference. TOPEKA (AP) - Bills to stimulate the economic growth of Kansas and establish educational television were introduced in the State Senate Tuesday. A bill to admit Wichita University to the state system was referred to the committee of the whole. Sen. Paul Wunsch, speaker pro tern, said it probably will go on the senate calendar today or Thursday. The bills on economic growth included one that would create a state department of economic development and another to create an authority that could make loans to new industry. The educational television bill, which left financing for later, would create a seven-member authority with the state superintendent of public instruction as chairman. Officers of schools at various levels would serve on the board. It would be headed by a full-time executive director. The economic bills were introduced by the Committee on Industrial Development and Aeronautics. They would abolish the Kansas Industrial Development Commission (KIDC) and create an office of economic analysis and a commission to replace the KIDC. The lending authority, headed by a nine-member board, would be created under a third bill. It would be empowered to make loans to prospective industry on recommendation of the department of economic developmnt. Jonds would be issued to raise the money. Two accompanying resolutions w o u 1-d submit constitutional amendments necessary to raise units on indebtedness. Another bill, on licensing of commercial feed lots, was returned to the Committee on Livestock. It provides for regulation of the 123 livestock feeding lots in the state. The Senate gave tentative approval to five other bills, among I PROTEIN PEP Strongheart Dog Food helps your dog get more fun out of life. It's Real Meat to liven him up with plenty of protein. them one to permit commercial fishermen to. remove rough fish from state lakes. Another authorizes the State Motor Vehicle Department to issue driver's licenses to graduates of driver training schools.
