THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON. ILLINOIS It "Senate Will OK Test Ban — Keating By NEIL GIURIDE WASHINGTON (AP)-Sen. Ken neth B. Keating predicts overwhelming Senate approval for the limited nuclear test ban treaty if Secretary of State Dean Rusk makes it clear that no 'under- the -table" deals are involved Keating, a New York Republican, said he asked Rusk for assurance that U.S. negotiators have not agreed to a nonaggression pact or increased trade as a price) for the agreement being signed today in Moscow. 'If we get a forthwright re. sponse, and a denial of any under-the-table deals, then I am con fident that the Senate will ratify this treaty by on overwhelming vote," Keating said Sunday in a taped radio-television program broadcast in New York. A two-thirds majority is needed for ratification. In a speech to the nation July 2G, President Kennedy said: "The Moscow talks reached no agreement on any other subject, nor is this treaty conditioned on any other matter." A Democrat, Sen. Strom Thurmond of South Carolina, raised doubts Sunday about the treaty, which would ban tests in the atmosphere, outer space and under the sea. Thurmond, In a letter to constituents, said Soviet Premier Khrushchev's failure to keep agreements on Cuba, Southeast Asia and other world trouble spots make it questionable whether he can be trusted on the test ban. But Undersecretary of State W. Avcrell Harriman, who negotiat ed the treaty, said he does not believe Khrushchev has any tricks op his sleeve in connection with the test ban. But he added in a television interview (NBC—Meet The Press) that the United States must be ready to test at any time in case the Soviets break the agreement.

By JAMES MARLOW WASHINGTON (AP)-The United States dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima 18 years ago Tuesday. Shortly afterward. Hitler's foreign minister, Joachim Von Ribbentrop, expressed a strange confidence in mankind. No one would be so stupid as to start a war now," he said. His foresight had never been very good. At the time he made the prophecy he was in jail in Germany, soon to be tried and (hanged for war crimes. The bomb which hit the Japanese city had more power than 20,000 tons of TNT. Now the United States has a stockpile equival-| ent to 5 billion tons of TNT. The Soviets have one equal to at least 20 billion tons. Arthur T. Hadley, autihor of "The Nation's Safety and Arms Control," said recently 5 billion tons of TNT explosive power 'would fill a string of freight cars stretching from the earth to the moon and back 15 times." The United States and the Soviet Union, it has been estimated, ought to be able to eliminate about 90 per cent of each other in an all-out war. Last week Presi dent Kennedy talked of "100 objects flying through the air at thousands of miles an hour. This makes the Hiroshima bomb look a little skimpy although it destroyed about 60 per cent of[ the city, killed about 78,000 people outright, and had a blast effect equivalent to that of all the high explosives which could be carried in a fleet of 2,000 B29s. Bertrand Russell, British philosopher, suggested last year that bombs might not be the only cause of mortality in a nuclear attack on this country. He thought a "great may Americans would be kdlied by other Americans who did not want their shelters over-filled." But, since he's a leader in the "ban- the-bomb" protests, some people may regard him as odd. After 18 years, the United States, Britain and the Soviet Union haven't come any closer to banning tile bomb than a limited agreement, being signed today, to ban nuclear tests in the atmosphere and outer space and under the sea. underground and go on making bombs. Kennedy said this country will continue testing underground. And any signer of the agreement can get out of it on three months' notice. The agreement ran into trouble as soon as it was announced. France and Red China, determined to make their own nuclear weapons, even if it takes years, won't join the agreement which China calls a "filtlby fraud." When they get their supply built up, perhaps in 10 years, it still will be no match for those of the United States and the Soviet Union. French President Charles de Gaulle said last week France wouldn't stop trying to build nuclear weapons unless the Soviet Union and this country agree to destroy their nuclear weapons and prohibit their use. If the nuclear powers are ever willing to destroy their waepons— not Mkely in Hhis generation—it may take another generation of arguing about the details of checking to prevent cheating. If they did agree on this, war might come sooner than if they didn't, and for one of the most weird reasons in the whole weird history of the atomic bomb. All the nuclear powers, present and future, know what a nuclear war could do to each of them. Therefore, so long as they have nuclear weapons, they may be reluctant to start a war, not because (fhey're bright enough to settle disputes peacefully, but because they're afraid to take a chance. If all the nuclear powers got rid of their nuclear weapons, then they'd all be back with the conventional — although improved — weapons of pre-atomic days. However, in pre^atomdc days there were two world wars. No nation then had to worry it might be annihilated in a few minutes. Even if it is lost, most of its people would still be alive. So without nuclear weapons war is less risky and more enticing. If you can accept this grisly reasoning, then for a long time t)he world may be safer with nuclear bombs than without them. But to think like this is to think Mke Von Ribbentrop. Who wants to think This leaves them free to test like him, even if he was right?

Farm News By OVID A. MARTIN WASHINGTON (AP)—The Agri culture Department reported today that the soil bank established in 1956 to help reduce crop overproduction has helped enhance farm land values. Under the soil bank the department paid farmers to retire a part or alio of their cropland. At the peak of the program's activity in 1960 about 28.7 million acres were under contract and payments ap- proched $400 million a year. Since ttten, the number of acres under retirement has been declining. At the beginning of this year, about 24. million acres were still idled under the program. "In areas where the soil bank contracts are important," the department said, they tend to establish a base for rental rates on land of equal quality. When capitalized into the value of the land, this minimum rent tends to set a floor under their land val ues." In a report on factors influencing land values, the department also said increasing outdoor recreational activities are exerting an upward influence on land values. "Recreation activities, either alone or in combination with tourism, affect farmland values," the report said. 'Whether in the mountains, the flatland, or at the shore, what now is farmland can quickly become a summer home, a hunting or fishing preserve, or a weekend retreat. "Closely associated with recreation are travel services necessary to go from homes to recreation areas. As work weeks become shorter and vaoations longer, more families go more miles in more automobiles. This increases the demands for more motels, more restaurants, and more automotive service facilities. Thus, this demand for land exerts pressure on farmland values along most principal highways of the country, particularly in the densely populated sections of the East. WASHINGTON (AP) - The grain industry is expressing willingness to cooperate with the rail roads in converting shipment of grain and grain products from box cars to new covered hopper cars. The latter are said to be much more efficient and require less labor in loading and unloading. w T i ? ,AU ??T It , is . said that he who Iau Ehs last, laughs wL sf 0 -? 1 .^ 8 J °oks, it would seem that this Pontiac, Mich., horse u getting the last laugh on someone. They have been tried out on a limited scale. Shift to the new cars would require shippers—both those selling and buying grain—to build new equipment to facilitate loading and unloading of the new cars. The Grain and Feed Dealers National Association said a survey indicated that grain firms all over the nation are willing to adjust to tfhe new cars. Part of this willingness was said to reflect frustration at shortages of regular box cars in recent years.

Insofar as hogs are concerned, the report said only a modest seasonal drop in prices is likely, with the low point about like last year. But if fall farrowing plans are carried out—1 per cent more than last fall—and beef supplies continue plentiful, prices of hogs next Winter may drop nearly to culture Departmet predicted to- last Winter's low. t-5 NOTICE OF CLAIM DAT Notice is hereby given to all persons that Monday, September 2, 1963, is the claim date in the estate of J.
