Erhard to Arrive In Capital Today WASHINGTON (AP) - Chancellor Ludwig Erhard of West Germany arrives in Washington today amid reports that the Soviet Union is about to sign a treaty with East Germany. Diplomatic observers here expect it to take the form of a .treaty of friendship, much like ..the pacts Moscow already has with a number of its satellites. But whatever the nature of the treaty, the Soviet Union has been forewarned that the United States will hold it responsible for honoring previous East-West agreements on Berlin l and Germany. This will be the third meeting between President Johnson and Erhard since the two became the heads of their governments last fall. The East Ger• man-Soviet treaty is sure to dominate their talks. Earlier this week, American sources were skeptical that Soviet premier Khrushchev would •rock the boat in this period of East-West thaw by concluding a spectacular agreement with Walter Ulbricht, East German Communist leader and chief of state.. Thursday night these sources conceded that reports from Moscow of the imminent signing of documents of "special significance" convinced them they were wrong. Later authoritative sources said Soviet Ambassador Anatoly F. Dobrynin had told Sec- Appointment Of Constable Is Confirmed BATON ROUGE (SpU- Charles W. Stanley of Starks, appointed constable for Ward 5, Calcasieu Parish, by Gov. John McKeithen, had his appointment confirmed by the Senate Thursday. The new constable was among several Southwest Louisiana appointments confirmed. Roland B. Reed, Ville Platte attorney, was named to assist the inheritance tax collector in Evangeline Parish. Ervin (Bobo) Weldon, was confirmed as justice of the peace for Ward 7, Beauregard Parish. Stanley, who ran second to Lawrence Clark, last December in the Ward 5 constable race, thus succeeds the man who defeated him. Clark resigned his commission after being commissioned a Calcasieu Parish sheriff's deputy. Swedish AF Officer Draws Life Sentence STOCKHOLM, Sweden (AP) —Col. Stig Wennerstrom of the Swedish air force was sentenced to life in prison today for spying against Sweden for the Soviet Union. The sentence, Sweden's most severe in peacetime, was handed down 10 days before Soviet Premier Khruchev is due in Stockholm on a visit. When Wennerstrom was arrested Si year ago, Premier Tage Erlander said relations between Sweden and the Soviet Union had been seriously disturbed by the case. But recently he declined to comment when asked how this might affect Khrushchev's visit. Wennerstrom, 57, was arrested after 14 years of espionage activities in Moscow, Washington and,Stockholm. His ^.'tivity was mainly directed- against the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, he said. Wennerstrom received notice of the sentence from the Central Criminal Court in a special steel and concrete prison "bunker" in which he has been kept since a suicide attempt. He will be eligible for parole after 10 years. retary of State Dean Rusk Wednesday that the Soviet Union intends to conclude a treaty with East Germany. In reporting this the sources made the following statement: "The conclusion or implementation of this treaty by the Soviet Union cannot in any case affect the legal obligations and responsibilities of the Soviet Union under agreements and arrangements between the three Western powers and the Soviet Union on the subject of Berlin and Germany. "The Soviet Union remains responsible to carry out these obligations and responsibilities. "The U.S. government considers that the government of the Federal Republic of Germany is the only German government freely and legitimately constituted and therefore entitled to speak for the German people in international affairs. "The U.S. government does not recognize the East German regime nor the existence of a state in Eastern Germany. It remains the goal of U.S. policy to achieve the reunification of all Germans." American specialists on German affairs said privately they see no reason to be alarmed by a treaty provided it does not go beyond the scope of similar pacts. A peace treaty, giving the East Germans complete sovereignty including the right to control access routes to West Berlin, would be a most serious matter, officials here stressed. The United States, Britain and France have made it repeatedly clear since the start of the Berlin crisis in 1958, that the Allies would not tolerate any violation of their rights to be in Berlin and to have free access to the city by unilateral Soviet action.

Scran ton will tell the Maryland Republican Convention here today he will seek the GOP presidential nomination at San Francisco next month, sources close to the governor reported. Those close to Scranlon described him as deeply disturbed over the leadership trend within the GOP. The sources said he would tell the Maryland organization he will continue to fight for the nomination until the issue is settled. The announcement by Scranton would put him in direct opposition to Sen. Barry Goldwater. The Arizona Republican presently holds a commanding lead in the battle for national convention delegates. A key factor in Scranton's decision, sources said, was Goldwater's vote on Wednesday against ending the filibuster in the Senate on civil rights legislation. Scranton long has been an outspoken advocate of civil rights. Goldwater has indicated ho would vote against the civil rights bill itself unless it is changed to meet his specifications. In announcing his candidacy Scranton would join a field of GOP contenders that includes Goldwater, New York Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller, Maine Sen. Margaret Chase Smith, and former Minnesota Gov. Harold Stassen. Goldwater was not available immediately for comment. In New York a spokesman for Space Still Open for New Freshmen !

Negro Youth Is Registered At Ole Miss; OXFORD, Miss. (AP) ~ A 17-year-old Negro registered quietly Thursday for the summer term at the University of Mississippi in sharp contrast to the rioting which accompanied the enrollment of Ole Miss 1 first Negro student nearly two years ago. Cleveland Donald Jr., of Jackson, told newsmen he was at the university to get an education and said he would "appreciate it if reporters would stay away for three or four years." Ole Miss returned to its- -all- white status la:st October after Cleve McDowell, a law student, was expelled for carrying a pistol. McDowell followed James H. Meredith, the university's first Negro student. Meredith, who was graduated last August, arrived on campus Sept. 30, 1962 and a night of turmoil followed in which two v.cre killed and several hundred injured. lYoungster Drowns 'In Birthday Swim 1 NEW ORLEANS (AP)-Louis Thomas Allen decided to celebrate his seventh birthday Thursday by slipping into the swimming pool of a motor hotel i near his home. !
