Faubus today credited the sending of federal troops to' Little Rock in the integration Space Agency Bill Is Signed NASA Created For Space Activities WASHINGTON (UPU-The Unit ed Stales is about to embark' on a new civilian-directed program for the conquest of outer space. President Eisenhower signed into law Tuesday a bill establishing a new space agency to supervise the peaceful efforts. His signature created a new National Aeronautics and Space Administration. The President said in a special statement the measure was an "historic step" pledged to "peaceful purposes for the benefit of all mankind." It was expected the President would ask Congress for about 300 million dollars to finance the new agency. May Head Agency Dr. Hugh L. Dryden, head of the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics, estimated NASA would be a functioning unit within two to three months. NASA will supercede Dryden's 38-year-old committee. There vas speculation Dryden might become the $22,500-a-year administrator of the new agency. The law charges the administrator with planning, directing and conducting aeronautical and space activities. But it also gives the Department of Defense clear jurisdiction over "activities peculiar to or, primarily associated with the development of weapons systems, mili tary operations or the defense of the United States," including research necessary to make effective provision for the defense of the United States. Replacement Picked For First Flight to Space LOS ANGELES (LTD - Sometime within the next year or two a . weirdly-garbed pilot will be strapped into the cockpit of the rocket plane X-15, carried aloft under a giant jet bomber to the lower stratosphere and then dropped. The X-15's throaty rocket engine then will be switched on and the missile-iike craft will streak up ward at a speed near 4.000 miles an hour into true space. The man assigned to pilot America's first space ship is a poised New Yorker, Air Force Capt. Robert (Bcb) White, 34, vet- , crn of 52 combat missions in World War II and Korea and now designated to replace Capt. Iven C. Kincheloe, killed in a jet crash last Saturday at Edwards Air Force Base. Capt. White and other fellow pilots paid last tributes to Kinchelce Tuesday the man who was orig- ' inally scheduled to make the dangerous mission. Kincheloe's body was taken to Arlington Cemetery crisis for a vote that gave him a third term by the biggest majority in Arkansas history. Almost complete returns from Tuesday's Democratic primary gave him 69.5 per cent of the vote. The rest was almost evenly divided between his opponents Little Rock meat packer Chris Finkbeiner, 37, and Judge Lee Ward, 52, of Paragould. Unofficial, returns to United Press International from 2,217 of the state's 2,332 precincts gave Faubus 244,225 votes, Finkbeiner 31,284 and Ward 52,340. "The voting was a condemna tion by the people of illegal fed- erk intervention in the affairs'" of j the state and the horrifying use jof federal bayonets in the streets of an American city and in the halls of a public school," Faubus, '48, said in a victory statement. Would Do It Again ! He meant President Eisenhower's sending of 1,000 troops of the 101st Airborne Division to Little Rock' last September to protect nine Negroes who enrolled in Central High School. Faubus previously had used two companies of the National Guard tn kppn prnps nifh on thp , ..-r 0 , ground wai integration oi wenuai would provoke bloody violence. Mrs. L. C. Bates, president of the Arkansas chapter of the ; NAACP, " declined to comment on j Faubus' victory. She led the fight to get the Negroes into the school. Integration itself was not an election issue, since Ward and j Finkbeiner were against it. The issue was what to do if a school 'were faced with integration. Faubus said he'd call out the National Guard again ifv he ; thought it necessary. Ward and Finkbeiner said they would never use the state militia to defy the ! government. St. Marys Boy Drowns ST.

Blough, chairman of U.S. Steel Corp., says the nation's biggest steel company has no increase in steel prices in mind at the present time. His statement came as Armco Steel Corp., the nation's seventh largest steel maker, announced price boosts averaging $4.50 a ton on hot and cold rolled carbon Seneca Push Alternate Plan Army Shows Interest In Conewango Project WASHINGTON (UPD-The Army has displayed an interest in the proposed Conewango Basin Project as an alternative to the controversial Kinzua dam on the Allegheny River, a Seneca Indian representative said today. The Army is "now interested" in the new plan, said Edward E. O'Neill, Seneca counsel, following a meeting with the Army Corps of Engineers. 'Assistant Army Secretary Dewey Short and Maj. Gen. E.C. Itschner, head of the Engineers, called Dr. Arthur Morgan, engineer for the Senecas, to the. Pentagon Tuesday to discuss the Conewango Basin plant. The Seneca Indian Nation opposes the Kinzua dam on grounds it sould flood much of its reservation. The Indians are seeking a federal court injunction to block the 110-million dollar project. O'Neill said Morgan had shown the "feasibility" of the new proj ect and said the "question is one of economics." Morgan, who constructed the Tennessee Valley Authority, said the Conewango plan is far "superior" to the proposed Kinzua tlam. . It is "far better" in every respect to do the job mainly to prevent floods at Pittsburgh and to store water, he said. The Conewango plan calls for diversion of Allegheny flood waters into the Conewango Creek. Morgan said it would have 2'j times the capacity of the Kinzua reservoir and would cost less than 100 million dollars. Morgan said Army Engineers failed to take into consideration alternatives when they selected the Kinzua site. The Congress-authorized Kinzua project would involve expropriation of about 20,000 acres of the Seneca National Reservation. The land was deeded to the Senecas in a 1794 treaty signed by George Washington. O'Neill said he believes the Army has decided to consider alternatives in view of the present court action which also will involve an appeal to the Supreme Court. Morgan said Army officials told him io submit his views in writing, preparatory to further talks on the Conewango project. He said the new project would provide control of floods with a safety valve into Lake Erie. Bank Watchman W0UnfJefj ROWCrS a LANCASTER, Pa. (LTD - A night watchman was seriously and ordered him into an auto parked in th lot. When Markely hesitated, t h e gunman jumped him and then shot him twice, the bullets enter- ing the chest and thigh, The Two men then fled. sheets and strip, effective Thursday. Armco was the first major steel company to announce an increase in prices which many steel men have called imperative to absorb higher wage costs that went into effect July 1. , Earlier this month Alan Wood Steel Co., a small producer, had to rescind an increase because the majors failed to go along. In the past U.S. Steel has been the price leader. On July 1, 1957, when wage costs also rose "big steel" promptly announced a $6 a ton increase in prices. Blough's statement on prices came at a news conference Tuesday, held after the corporation reported its sales and earnings in the second quarter topped the first quarter but were well below the second quarter of 1957. The report also showed first half earnings and sales ran well below the similar 1957 period. No Price Forecast Blough declined to forecast a price increase in either August or September saying "we'll have to: meet these situations as we cornel to them and in the face of changing circumstances." . However, he pointed out that "big steel" has absorbed wage costs since the first of the year that have added "well over $4 a ton" to the cost of producing a ton of steel. Iron Age, an authoritative trade magazine, says in its current issue that U.S. Steel is considering a price boost o $4 a ton on major steel products. It also says the Armco action signals the move by all producers to raise prices within the next few days. Blough also said the recession has hit bottom, but cautioned against expecting a vigorous pickup. Asserting the economy is too big to "turn on a dime," he said "I do not expect a vigorous pick-up short ' of a national problem of magnitude." Ships More Steel Blough said 'U.S. Steel so far this year has shipped more steel than it has produced and added that consumers are using more steel than they are buying. The executive said U.S. Steel is experiencing a "very slow July" but noted there has been "some pick-up in current orders." The strength has come mainly from buying from the auto, farm equipment and construction industries. He said the Middle East crisis by the end of last week had "not materially changed our order books." He predicted U.S. Steel and the industry will operate at "better than 54 per cent of capacity in the third quarter and "in the 60's" in the fourth quarter. Last week the industry was operating at 57.3 'per cent of capacity. Blough said U.S. Steel this week is operating between 53 and 54 per cent. Israel Asks Talks With Russia, UAR JERUSALEM (UPD-Israel has asked Russian Premier Nikita Khrushchev to arrange a meeting between Israeli Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion and United 4rah ReDuhlip Prpsident Gamal Abdel Nasser in a bid to settle ! Arab - Israel differences, highly placed sources revealed today. The. appeal was sent to Khrushchev by Ben-Gurion himself, the sources said. The proposal was sent to Moscow within a few days of the Iraqi revolt of July 14, the sources added. But, they said? no reply has yet been received from Moscow and it is assumed here that Moscow is. for the time being at least, ignoring the Israeli approach. Ben-Gurion's call to Khrushchev went through normal diplomatic channels, the sources added. This report of Ben-Gurion's bid to secure an understanding with Nasser came as Israel prepared to meet the new dangers which Israeli leaders fear wi'! inevitably face this country when the American and British troops quit the Lebanon and Jordan, ir of k LEBANESE CHILDREN MARCH Beirut.

Gavin (ret.), ex re search chief of the Army, said today the United States is "in mortal danger" because it lags "at least three, and more likely five years" behind Russia in missile development. Gavin blamed much of the missile lag and other "errors in our overall military policy" on former Defense Secretary Charles E. Wilson. Wilson, vacationing at Boyne City, Mich., today refused direct comment on Gavin's charge, saying the general was trying to sell his book "in a rather nasty way." "He's setting himself up as an expert in a field in which he has no experience," Wilson said. "I wouldn't say he was competent enough to be considered a military authority. It's a case of a little knowledge being a dangerous thing." Gavin quoted one unidentified military chief of staff as saying Wilson was ''the most uninformed j man, and the most determined to remain so, that has ever been sec- retarj'-" Gavin's discussion of defense j shortcomings is contained in hiSj forthcoming book.

Haiti (UPI) Haiti was reported quiet early today under a 12-hour curfew imposed in the wake of Tuesday's abortive attempt to overthrow President Francois Duvalier. Strict censorship, reinforced by irmed guards at the overseas tel ephone exchange, viled details of the situation, but there were no immediate reports of new . vio-' lence. i The curfew order, restricting movement in this island republic between 6 p.m. and 6 a.m.. was accompanied by censorship cf both the local press and outgoing; news dispatches. Authorities here had not yet succeeded in getting positive identi-1 fication of two men, believed to be Americans, who were killed with the ring-leaders cf the revolt in the fight for the Dessalines i Barracks. 1 BEHIND U. S. Marines as they ing candidate Maj. Gen. F u a d Chehab, army chief of staff. Solh spoke out less than 24 hours before the balloting was scheduled to start. Shaken by Tuesday's assassination attempt on the premier, Lebanon was sharply split ' and observers rated chances of the election being held on time as barely 50-50. In the suddenly tense atmosphere U.S. forces tightened security precautions. Helicopters reconnoitered the port area for possible snipers. Mobile patrols shuttled through the city, Marines at the ready in battle dress. Solh told United Press International correspondent George Bitar he would use "all his influence" to block the election because "Beirut is still subject to violence". He charged that Chehab, t h e single likely candidate behind whom the various opposing factions seemed likely to unite, had "failed in his duty to clean up the rebellion and should not be President." Expresses Thanks Soih aiso said American forces should remain in Lebanon until "independence and integrity" are assured. Rebel elements want the Americans out immediately. Solh also asked Bitar to relay "to the American people and government our thanks for a wholehearted support in the crisis." Sohl joined President Camille Chamoun at a marathon cabinet session in the presidential palace today. Simultaneously, at least s i x other would-be opposition presidential candidates were meeting in private to select one of their number to run against Chehab. There was no advance assurance that they could settle on one man. The election remained in doubt. Senate to Vole On Defense Fund Bill WASHINGTON (LTD The Senate hoped to pass by tonight a huge defense money bill calling for more than 40 billion dollars about one billion dollars more than President Eisenhower ; thought' necessary for military needs.

GRIGG LONDON (UPD-The United States and her Baghdad Pact partners are in .broad agieement on a revamped Middle East policy, including neutralization of Lebanon and probable ' ultimate recognition of the new Iraqi regime, authoritative sources said today. The outlines of the policy emerged during the two-day session of the "northern tier" alliance council which ended here j Tuesday. It was attended by the prime ministers and foreign ministers of Britain, Turkey, Iran and Pakistan. Secretary of State John Foster Dulles represented the United States at the opening meeting Monday. American Ambassador John Hay Whitney sat in Tuesday. The new revolutionary regime of Iraq, the fifth full member of the alliance, did not send a representative. The main points of the "new-look'' policy were: Recognition of a "special" neutral status for Lebanon under United Nations aegis and its removal from the forces of pro-Nasser Arab nationalism. Withdrawal of U.S. troops from Lebanon as soon as the sit- I uation there is stabilized.
