At left is Lady ; Senate Votes Money to Aid: Poorer Areas WASHINGTON (AP) The Senate today sent to President Eisenhower and an apparently sure veto a 251-million-dollar ' bill to aid chronically distressed areas. The measure carries authorizations for federal loans and grants aimed to create jobs in long-term depressed industrial and rural areas over the country. If there is a veto, Democrats plan to try to make it a major issue in this year's national election campaign. There seems to be little chance a veto could be overridden." :r West Virginia with its many unemployed coal miners is an example of an area the bill seeks to help. Both Sens. John F. Kennedy (D-Mass), and Hubert H. Humphrey (D-Minn) broke off their, Democratic presidential nomination campaigning in that state to return to the Capitol and vote for the bill. The Senate vote was to accept the version T of the legislation which the House passed Wednes day. Democratic Leader Lyndon B, Johnson D-Tex) said he would have preferred the original 389& million-dollar Senate bill passed in March last year, but he conced ed he saw no chance of getting it this ession.

Khrushchev Seen Trying to Force Ike Into Summit Trap By JOHN M. HIGHTOWER WASHINGTON (AP) Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev in the judgment of authorities here, is trying to force President Eisenhower into a summit conference trap where he must either make important concessions or take the blame tn-r t oilnro Alongside that assessment of Khrushchev's current blustery out burst against the United States and Eisenhower personally stands this additional view: There is some danger Khrushchev may overplay his hand and wreck summit conference plans completely. Eisenhower has repeatedly said he would not go to the summit uu der threat or duress. While Khrushchev has not carried his present anti-American campaign to that point his present tactics ' Tiorth of Saginaw when the tornado whistling in, I knew it must be a out of the living room," 6he said. , living room when the full force of get the baby while she bolted back Aliens all five of them found least 100 yards," the young father ' " The two boys landed near Mrs. ' to be hurt seriously..

Hagerty, White House press secretary, said the President has not to his knowledge changed plans to visit Russia. Hagerty parried all other ques tions on the plane . incident with "No comment" or noncommital answers. The followup salvo fired by a Khrushchev lieutenant before the Supreme Soviet in Moscow today reinforced the impression, based on Khrushchev's opening blast Thursday, that the Soviet leader has embarked on a deliberate campaign. The suddenness of his action caught everyone here from, the President down by surprise. Hence official reaction has been slow and cautious, its. development ham pered by the fact that Secretary of State Christian A. Herter, to gether with almost all the top of ficials of the State Department, has been in the Middle East for Allied conferences. They are due home tonight. But the White House and State Department were withholding any definitive reaction pending a re port from U.S. Ambassador Llew ellyn Thompson in Moscow of the facts behind Khrushchev's spec tacular announcement that Soviet forces had shot down a United States aircraft last Sunday. 'REMARKABLE ROCKET" ' The second round in Khrushchev's offensive was fired today by Marshal Andrei A. Grechko. Speaking before the Supreme Soviet as Khrushchev had, Grechko said the U.S. aircraft was destroyed by a single shot of a "remarkable rocket" and that the decision to fire was made by Khrushchev personally. t For the outside world the Grechko speech carries forward Khrushchev's main argument that Eisenhower is jeopardizing the success of the summit conference. He called th eplane incident an example of U.S. aggressive action against the Soviet Union. Worse the Archbishop of Canterbury. No reply. , "For better for worse," the archbishop said again. She then repeated the words quietly, her voice in a lower key than usual.

" GROOM UNRUFFLED The groom spoke his wedding responses clearly and firmly as he knelt with Margaret before the archbishop, Dr. Geoffrey Fisher, who pronounced them man and wife at exactly 11:45 a. m. It was the first time in four centuries that the daughter of an English king had married a com moner. Outside, a million Londoners and tourists roared cheers for the newlyweds. -It was a warm, sunny day.

"With continuing help from ail responsible persons,' the new law will play an important role in the days ahead in attaining our goal of equality under law in all areas of our country for all Americans, Eisenhower said. NO CEREMONY V- The signing was without any ex traordinary ceremony. Atty- Gen. William P. Rogers and Deputy Attn. Gen. Lawrence Walsh came to the White House for it, but there were no other prominent persons invited. Eisenhower used two pens in signing the bill, giving one to Rogers and the other to Walsh. The President's statement noted that this is only the second civil rights measure passed by Con gress in 85 years. He said it, like the 1957 law, 'was built on recommendations of the administration. Congress passed the legislation April 21 after months of struggle, marked by one wek of around- the-clock Senate sessions, v STUBBORN OPPOSITION Stubbornly resisting Southerners battled the bill by every possible means. While they were unable to defeat the legislation, they squeezed out of it a number ot features sought by the Eisenhow er administration or by Northern Democrats notably broad author ity for the attorney general to seek injunctions in civil rights cases and a permanent commission to fight race'discrimniation in employment on federal contracts. Although primarily a voting rights measure, the new law also strengthens federal authority to deal with bombers and persons who organize violent demonstrations against court orders such as those desegregating public schools. HEAR OF BILL The heart of the measure is a new procedure to help Negroes, or other minorities, fight discrimination against them at the ballot box. Teamed in this effort will be the U.S. Department Of Justice, federal courts and officers of the courts called referees. The bill provides for the attor ney general to file suit, asking courts to find whether there is a pattern of discrimination against the exercise of voting rights. After such a finding, court-ap pointed referees could hear com plaints from persons ' discrimi nated against. If the referee found such persons qualified under state law, he could order that they be permitted to register and vote. The new voting procedure may be tested in this fall's elections, although the law is expected to be challenged in court, delaying a showdown. acquainted with Bush and called the boy's parents at Belle Fourche. They in turn called authorities there. About 10 officers from South Dakota and Wyoming made the arrest, Fuller said.

"Sen. - Kennedy's outstanding majority of in excess of 106,000 votes in the Wisconsin primary is undisputable evidence of his popularity with the voters of a Midwest farm state, particularly when it was accomplished against the vigorous campaigning of a Midwest farm state senator with the ability of Sen.

Kennedy's headguarters indicated a reluctance to - have a delegation pledged or committed to him entered in the primary, in view of the fact that many of the party and state officials. including the governor, have com mitted the slate of delegates to Sen. Humphrey, They feel that they do not want to give even implied approval of any action by his followers in this state that might be the source of any friction or animosity in the Democratic " party.
