Storms Rake Central Area By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS More storms raked centra! sections of the nation today but fairly pleasant weather pre vailed in most other areas. Tornadoes, rain, hail and strong winds were reported in parts of south-central Kansas West Texas, western Oklahoma and the Nebraska Panhandle. One factor which may yet save the Dominican Republic is that, as of now, there is no outstanding leader on the extreme left who is able to capture the imagination and loyalty of the restless young men who are thirsting for radical change. "Uncle Sam, what now?" a young lawyer asked me in Santiago, the nation's second capital, whose middle class is cowering in dread of what may happen there should the Yankees leave. The question is on many lips in tormented Santo Domingo. The intervention of American forces may havp prevented a bloodbath. It may even have averted an attempt by elements of the extreme left to seize a constitutionalist revolt. All this may have been a calculated risk which weighed the probable adverse impact in Latin America and the rest of the world against U.S. interest in averting at any costs another Cuba in the Western Hemisphere. The question whether such massive intervention was necessary now is academic. It has happened. Perhaps, one hears, U.S. support for the rebels when they staged their coup April 24 might have averted the leftist infiltration, once arms were passed out among thousands of civilians. Military intervention probably was the only answer in a situation critically important to the U.S. sphere of influence. Virtually overnight the U.S. military built up a force on this island rivaling that now involved in South Vet Nam. It may have averted a civil war here and another Cuba, Some worry whether it might have started a new Viet Nam. All that is lacking, some say, is a guerrilla movement. Thus, it is argued, at least some U.S. forces may have to remain in Santo Domingo for a long time, with all that means When the firing ceased, , the I Several persons were injured Marines summoned helicopters j one seriously, when a tornado to carry out their casualties, j hit a trailer court as it passec This touched off heavy Commu- over West Wichita, Kan., Thurs nisi groundfire and one copter; day night.

The Dominican coup was staged by a dozen or so young army officers against a civilian junta. Its avowed aim was to restore the 1963 Constitution and to bring back Juan Bosch, elected in 1962 and ousted a year later, as the constitutional president. It seemed like Just another coup in a country which had become accustomed to them. But there was a difference. The word 'Constitution" meant rest oi the unit by the end of the day.

It is difficult to prove, but what evidence there is points to the likelihood that extremist elements in the country, which are fairly numerous, saw an opportunity and attempted to capitalize on what had happened.

UN Security Council Calls For Dominican Cease-Fire By EDDY GILMORE RUNNYMEDE, England (AP)—-On these hallowed fields of Magna Carta, Queen Elizabeth II—with Mrs. John F. Kennedy at her side—today dedicated Britain's memorial to the Ir.te American president. It was a sultry, sunny day but Mrs. Kennedy looked elegant and cool in white. The solemn ceremonies unfolded only a short distance from the spot where Magna Carta, with its precious liberties, was signed 750 years ago. With the queen's dedication, the rectangular, seven-ton memorial of Portland stone, and some of the historic ground immediately around it, became American property. They were the gift of the British people to millions of whom Kennedy was a revered figure, symbolizing a young and vigorous America. The president's widow and his two children, Caroline, 7, and John F. Jr. 4, came to Britain to attend the ceremony. So did his brothers, Sens. Robert F. and Edward M. Kennedy, and two of his sisters, Mrs. Stephen Smith and Mrs. Peter Lawford. The queen invited Mrs. Kennedy and other members of the family to Windsor Castle for tea after the ceremony. The memorial is on a paved terrace surrounded by two stone seats and set in an acre of the meadow beside the Thames River 21 miles southwest of London. It was here on June 15, 1215, that the barons of England forced King John to put his seal on the Magna Carta—the great charter—which laid a foundation for the security of English political and personal liberty. Carved on the face of the memorial block are these words: "This acre of English ground was given to the United States of America by the people of Britain in memory of John F. Kennedy, president of the United States 1961-63, died by an assassin's hand, 22 November 1963." Then follows this quotation from Kennedy's inaugural address: "Let every nation know for his post as commandant of the armed forces training center at Sansidro Air Base. by much that was purely American.

She was accompa nied by Lord Harlech, forme British ambassador to Washing ton. Behind them came Mrs. Kennedy and Prince Philip and the two Kennedy children. Prince Philip held one of John's hands, Mrs. Kennedy the other. Former Prime Minister Harold Macmillan, a long - time friend, spoke of Kennedy's assassination, saying: "None of us will ever forget that grim November day nearly two years ago when we heard the news. Sudden, unexpected, incredible, it seemed like some fantastic fiction. Yet, as the remorseless story was unfolded, we were faced with the stark finality of act. It seemed to each of us a personal, individual grief." His voice trembling with emotion, Macmillan asked: "Was it not because he seemed in his own person to embody all the hopes and aspirations of this new world that is struggling to emerge phoenix- like from the ashes of the old?' Reserve Dispute May Be Settled By HARRY KELLY WASHINGTON (AP) — A zero-hour compromise in the dispute over the Pentagon's Reserve merger plan was signaled Chinese Blast U.S. in Making Announcement Charge U.S. With 'Nuclear Blackmail' TOKYO (AP) — Communist China said today it had exploded its second atomic bomb — aimed at developing nuclear weapons to cope "with nuclear blackmail and threats of the United States." Peking Radio made the announcement and added that the nuclear tests also were "for the purpose of abolishing all nuclear weapons." "China is conducting necessary nuclear tests within the de. fined limits and is developing the OAS and the tne nuclear weapon for the purpose of coping with nuclear * * * Both the United States and the Dominican rebels had charged the junta forces with breaking the cease-fire by the radio station bombing. A U.S. spokesman said the United States would complain to the Organization of American States. Rebel spokesman Hector Aristy said formal protests had been today. The principal antagonists, Rep. F. Edward Hebert, D-La., and Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara, scheduled a joint news conference for Saturday morning. The Pentagon announced In a brief statement that McNamara will go to Capitol Hill to join Hebert to face the press together. There was no tip-off as to the subject of the conference. However, Hebert's House Armed Services subcommittee has held extended hearings on the Defense Department proposal to merge all Army Reserve units into the National Guard. When McNamara announced the plan Dec. 12 it set off a storm of controversy within the Reserves and within Congress. Hetaert charged that McNamara was attempting to detour congressional authority in carrying out the plan without legislation. A month ago, when Hebert recessed the hearings for the Easter holiday, he issued an "open invitation for Mr. McNamara to come before this committee and say 'Yes, we are partners. I need your help." McNamara has said he is seeking congressional authority for the controversial plan. But the argument has boiled down to the issue of what the secretary considers to be congressional authority. In his appearance before an United Nations. Neither Brig. Gen. Antonio Imbert Barreras, head of the civilian-military junta opposing the rebels, nor Brig. Gen. Elias Wessin y Wessin, commander of the junta's San Isidro Air Base, were available for comment. A rebel spokesman said at least two P51 Mustangs and four AT6 Texan trainers equipped with bombs made the attacks. The American-made planes were supplied to the Dominican Republic long before the present civil strife. A t least one person, the 5- year-old son of Carlita Jacques, was killed in the air attacks. The boy, Jose Ivan, was playing outside his home near the transmitter of Radio Santo Domingo. Residents of the 20-block area of downtown Santo Domingo held by the rebels responded with an angry cry against U.S. forces. "The gringos are responsible; let's declare war on the Americans," people shouted. In Washington, the State Department said the planes "left the San Isidro base on the loyalist Dominican order and without our knowledge." "Loyalist" is the designation U.S. officials apply to the junta forces. Richard Phillips, State Department press officer, said the attack "could affect the U.S. blackmail and threats of the United States." The Chinese nuclear explosion erupted over the western area of mainland China at 10 a.m. Peking time today—9 p.m. EST, May 13—the broadcast said. It called the test a success. The explosion probably was in remote Sinkiang Province of northwest China, where Red China conducted its first atomic experiment. Communist China became the fifth nation in the world nuclear club last Oct. 16 with the explosion of its first atomic device. The Chinese coupled their first announcement with a blast at the United States and made a bid for a world conference of heads of state to discuss nuclear < disarmament. Ironically, just Thursday an American oficial in London said the world's great powers have until early 1968 to stop the spread of atomic weapons. By then, some 20 countries will be able to make atomic bombs, the informant said. A communique broadcast by Peking Radio referred to "an atomic bomb" but the first one, at least, was believed to have been an atomic device. This did not have the refinements of a. real bomb.

The U.N. Security Council was called into urgent session this morning to consider the communication, which was signed by Jottin Cury, foreign minister of the rebel regime. It was learned that Cury was critical of both the United States and the OAS. Concerning the bombing, he alleged that the whether it wishes us well or ill that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend or oppose any foe in order to assure the survival and success of liberty."

There have been persistent reports he and Imbert do not see eye to eye. One strafing run was near the U.S. lines a few "blocks from the U.S. Embassy. It was close enough that U.S. Ambassador W. Tapley Bennett Jr. took cover under his desk. U.S. Marines fired back at one strafing P51. Capt. Charles B. Hennessey of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., a member of the 82nd Airborne Division, said he saw one of the planes disabled and the pilot bail out safely. It was not known whose fire brought down the fighter. No American personnel were hurt in the attack. The total of Americans killed in the Dominican crisis rose to 17 Thursday. Two U.S. soldiers were killed and a third escaped unhurt from a skirmish deep inside rebel territory.
