High Friday middle 40ti WASHINGTON (UPI) — The United States has made a direct, high-level appeal to Russia to use its influence'in persuading Asian Communists to halt aggression in Southeast Asia. The appeal was made by Secretary of State Dean Rusk to Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei A. Gromyko during a 2Vi-hour lunch at the Soviet Embassy Wednesday, according to U. S. officials. Gromyko also met late Wednesday with President Johnson at the White House. It was Johnson's first meeting with a high-ranking Russian official since the Kremlin upheaval in October which turned out Nikita S. Khrushchev. Asks U. S. Removal Gromyko, officials said, urged that the United States pull its military forces out of South Viet Nam, leaving the problem for the Vietnamese themselves to settle. Rusk replied that this was out of the question while Communist North Viet Nam, backed by Red China, continued to support aggression in South Viet Nam and Laos. In another development, the White House officially welcomed Soviet iPremier Alexei N. Kosy- gin's announcement of Russian military budget cuts of about one-half billion dollars, but said there was no U. S. - Soviet "agreement" on limiting defense spending. Defense Secretary Robert ..S. McNamara recently announced that the U. S. defense .budget is' expected to be reduced by 51.2 billion between fiscal 1964 and fiscal 1966. Urged Tclks The United States has long urged that there should be technical talks with the Russians on what defense .budget figures mean in each country. Both countries use different accounting systems. The Russians have never agreed to such talks. Rusk's talk with Gromyko also covered other possible steps toward curbing .the armaments race. But it was reported there were no signs of changes in Soviet policy bringing agreements in; that area any • closer. At the same time, however, Russian policy as expresssd by Gromyko was not particularly hostile. It was,, in fact, consid- (Continued on page 8) "HER'S" REPLACEMENT SENT BACK- This brown and white Ooagle. sent to ttie White House by E. D. Hollstein of Rushville.

Britain Takes U.S. Off Spot In NATO (EDITOR'S NOTE: The recent . talks between President Johnson and British Prima*' Minister Harold Wilson on the proposed NATO ;nuclear"fonie* resulted in nothing'but a plan for more talks. In this dispatch UPI diplomatic correspondent Stewart Hensley explains why this outcome was acclaimed by both sides.) By STEWART HENSLEY United Press International WASHINGTON (UPI) — The agreement .between President Johnson and British Prime Min ister Harold Wilson to combine their ideas on a NATO nuclear force took the United States off an increasingly uncomfortable hot spot. At the same time, it opened the possibility for Wilson to fulfill a pre-election pledge by his Labor party to rid Britain of her expensive independent nuclear forces. The immediate benefit for Washington in the formula Wil- irs A HAPPY MOMENT (or Sen. Edward M.

It. was not too difficult for Wilson to persuade Johnson to put on ice for a while the con troversial U. S. plan for a 25- vessel NATO nuclear fleet, to be manned by crews of mixed nationalities — the Multilateral Nuclear Force (MLF). In Deep Trouble • The U. S. project was in deep trouble. Only West Germany firmly supported it. France bitterly opposed it; the rest of the Allies were lukewarm at best The United States had dug itself in deeper and deeper by in sisting that eventually it would go ahead without Britain if it obtained Italian or Dutch approval, along with that of Germany. This would have been far from a "NATO" force. The problem was that MLF had ballooned into a symbol of the far broader and deeper struggle between France and Washington over the entire fu ture course of NATO's strategy and structure. The United States could not afford to back down on the issue lest its retreat be interpreted as a surrender to 'President Charles de Gaulle on all fronts. The - French leader wants . an "independent" Europe, clustered around his own fledgling nuclear force, to deal with' Washington and Moscow on a basis of equality. Saw Little Merit Wilson's new Labor government —just as its Conservative predecessor —saw little merit in the U. S. plan as an isolated element. It would irritate \hs Russians, who saw it as a device to give Germany a finger on the nuclear trigger, despite the U. S. veto power over firing the missiles. Left wing elements in Wilson's own party took the same view. MORE In addition, MUF alone would do nothing to divest Britain of her nuclear deterrent, which she feels unnecessary in view of America's overwhelming force. Wilson proposed — and Johnson agreed — that an effort should be made to.broaden the co-operative nuclear arrangement to" include land-based and airborne as well as seaborne missiles. Britain would add to the "pool" her considerable force of nuclear bombers as well as the tHree of four Polaris submarines she promised to build but now wishes she hadn't.. Firm ; On Veto The one factor upon which Wilson is extremely firm is that if any agreement comes into (Continued'on page () . Titan Rocket Fails Again 'Middle Or...' Nixon and Ike Advise Burch By WILLIAM THE IS United Press International WASHINGTON (UPI) —GOP National Chairman Dean Burch has the word from the "summit" today — find a "broad base" of support or retire. The word came from former President Dwight D. Eisenhower and ex-Vice 'President Richard M. Nixon—and in the presence of Burch's sponsor, Sen. Barry. M. Goldwater, the; defeated 1954 presidential nominee. Goldwater apparently agreed. The outcome of Wednesday's New'York City summit meeting of Eisenhower, Nixon and Goldwater—with Burch sitting-in an anteroom—seemed to forecast the replacement of the 38-year- old party . chairman. Moderate Rspublicans already claim thsy have a majority of votes in the GOP National Committee to unseat him. Seek Unity Informed sources said the problem now is not so much Burch's retirement, but how to achieve it without a party-shattering bolt by conservatives who back Goldwater and his hand-picked chairman. Eisenhower and .Nixon, it was understood, agreed with Goldwater that the party must remain unified and that unnecessary "bloodletting" must be avoided. The former President and his one-time understudy were pictured as deeply concerned that Republicans today face their CAPE KENNEDY (UPI) — Imost serious rift since Teddy The United States must, wait at j Roosevelt's Bullmoose third » ... . ,, v.'-, party bolt of 1912—or perhaps S-eS^Sl^intofe iraj^ split-off of space. - . About two months of delay were added in a split-second Wednesday—the time it took a steering mechanism to go haywire and ruin a critical flight test of a towering Titan-2 booster rocket and its two-seater Gemini capsule. The 109-foot-t a 11 space ma- :hine, instead of soaring a planned 2,150 miles into space, remained locked to its launching pad—its home for at least jnother month. By sending the 6;900-pound Gemini capsule on a searing 'up and down" flight to the 3dge of space, the shot was supposed to remove the final barrier for the nation's first two-man trip into orbit next March. . Now, however, the manned flight appears to be off until about May—a full lVa-years b°- iind the original schedule for :he "second generation" Project Gemini. Among those who watched :he disappointing series of red ights flash on electronic consoles Wednesday were Virgil L. "Jrissom and John W.

W;.tch GOP Conduct How the party conducts itself in the next six weeks- before the GOP National Committee meets in Chicago to decide Burch's fate could make the difference, they feel. Both Eisenhower and "Nixon urged Goldwater to help his chairman try to develop the "broadly based support" they said any chairman must have to serve.' Nixon told a news conference that this does not mean the unanimous backing of the 13imember national committee hut- he added pointedly: "A majority of one is not (Continued on page 8) Attack Repelled By U.S. Artillery With Heavy Loss Enrollment of 4-H Members Now Underway Enrollment of prospective 4- H members in agricultural projects is being conducted in Tipton County during this month.

Jenkins when the politically explosive Bobby Baker aearings resume next year., The committee ended the current phase of ' its long-running hearings into the Baker case vVednesday on a note of sharp partisan discord.. But members did agree ' to keep the inquiry alive into the new year. They planned to issue a statement about the future course of the case, expected to be made public some time today. The statement was to outline decisions taken by the committee in a four-hour closed meeting Wednesday before the windup of 1964 public hearings. Sen. John Sherman Cooper, Ky., the ldne Republican present at the meeting, made it clear he was outvoted on sev« era! issues.; He was far from happy about the decisions of the Democratic majority. Dead Issues Cooper said he felt the committee should have kept alive into the new Congress: —Its investigation into the 'mystery role of German beauty Mrs. Ellen Rometsch. Republicans contend "party girls" may have been used to win favors which helped Baker promote his many outside business interests. —Its material relating to an alleged campaign contribution "shakedown" of officials of International Telephone & Telegraph Corp.
