Buckley, the Bronx Democratic leader, fought off a reform drive and won renomins 1 - tion today with the backing of President Kennedy. Then the political veteran announced that his next term would be his last--that he would not campaign again. He indicated that he deferred retirement this time only to vindicate himself against reform charges of "bossism." Final returns in the wee hours gave Buckley. 73, a margin of al- most 3,000 votes over David H. Levy, 35, a lawyer, who was backed by Mayor Robert F. Wagner and the reform leaders, former Sen. Herbert H. Lehman and Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt. The unofficial count in the 23rd Congressional District was Buckley 20,158,. Levy 17,218.

U.S. officers concealed the affair nit it leaked out Thursday night. The Army in Germany still had ssued no official information today, although the State Department released a sketchy account n Washington. Army spokesmen said (hey could not confirm reports that Col. Ernest von Pawel, head of the U.S. iaison mission with the Soviet 'orces in East Germany, would make a protest to Gen. Ivan Yak- ubovsky, the Soviet commander in Sast Germany. The car was an olive-drab sedan of the liaison mission stationed at Potsdam, a suburb in East Germany southwest of Berlin. Two U.S. officers in it were touring nearby areas of East Germany. A well-informed source said the two officers encountered a Soviet train at a grade crossing. Soviet soldiers, apparently recognizing the car's big yellow license plates, opened fire. Although the source admitted the officers had been observing the train, he insisted they were not in a restricted area and were fully within their rights. The source called the Soviet shooting irresponsible. The secrecy thrown around the incident was designed to minimize its importance, American officials said, because the shooting had no connection with current tensions over Berlin. They said publication of the news exaggerated its importance.

The mercury dropped to 41 in Milwaukee, lying the record low mark for Sept. 7. It also was 41 in northwest suburbs of Chicago. The 44 in Columbus, Ohio, was a low reading for the date. The 50s prevailed in the Middle Missis- sippi and southern Ohio Valleys. Temperatures were near seasonal levels in most of he western half of the country. Warmer nir from the South spread into the northern Plains, with the mercury reaching 90 Thursday in Philip, S.D.
