Ed Guthman, spokesman for the attorney general, said "agreement was reached that the problem (of Indonesia's opposition to Malaysia) should be solved by consultation." Talks Were Cordial Guthman said the talks were "cordial, a friendly exchange of views." An Indonesian spokesman also described the talks as friendly and said "there was no difficulty at all in finding ways for the solution of the problems, which should be solved by consultations by the parties concerned." Asked about the U.S. role in the dispute, Guthman repeated Kennedy's views that the prob !lcm should be solved by the [Asians involved, not outsiders This suggested that one of the attorney general's aims is to bring together the leaders of the three nations involved in the crisis — Malaysia, Indonesia, and The Philippines.

So/, dying of cancer, cheered by Red Skelton HOLLYWOOD (UPI)-Russeli Dixon, an 11-year-old Australian boy dying of cancer, was cheered Thursday night by a visit with comedian Red Skelton. The stricken youngster and his mother, Mrs. Edna Dixon, flew here from their home in Sydney in hopes of seeing (he comic and for a visit to Disneyland. Skelton, whose own son died of leukemia a few years ago, was visibly shaken by the visit with young Russell. The boy was weary from the long flight when he got off the jet airliner at Los Angeles International Airport, and said little on the automobile trip across town to the television studio where he was to see Skelton. But after a few minutes with the red-haired comic, Russell was grinning from ear to ear. The visit lasted 45 minutes, ending when Skelton had to go before the cameras to tape his show. During the visit, Russell gave Red some presents he bought with his own pocket money. They included a box of cigars, a hairbrush and comb set, a pipe and some Australian coins. The youngster has cancer of his left eye and doctors say he has only three months to live His trip was made possible by contributions from readers of the Sydney Daily Mirror, which had published a story about Russell's wish to see Disneyland and Red Skelton. Polonium may be link between smoking, cancer BOSTON (UPI) — Polonium, known to chemistry students simply as PO, may be the deadly link between cigarette smoking and lung cancer. Two non - smoking Harvard University scientists disclosed Thursday they found polonium, a radio active element discovered in 1898 by Madame Eva Curie, in cigarette smoke. Dr. Edward P. Radford and Dr. Vilma R. Hunt told a news conference that a man smoking two packs of cigarettes a day probably was exposed to at least seven times more radiation than the non-smoker. They said polonium was vaporized at the burning temperature of the cigarette and was carried into the lungs by attaching itself to the smoke particles. Most of the polonium eventually is taken up by scavenger cells and carried into the bronchial lining of the throat, they said. The current filters on cigar­ ettes do not remove the dangerous polonium from smoke, they said. "I would be surprised if the tobacco industry wasn't able to do something about this," Dr. Radford said. "But currently available filters are not effective because they do not filter out the smcke. So, what's the sense of smoking?" The researchers said an effective filter would be one that removed all the smoke, leaving the smoker to inhale nothing but hot air. The scientists said they found that polonium, which emits alpha radiation, was present in small amounts in tobacco as a natural contaminant. It is present, also in small amounts, in all green plants. But, they said, eating the plants—such as cabbage or lettuce—apparently was harmless since the radioactive material passed quickly through the digestive system. Brown working on five state water plan OCEANSIDE (UPD-Gov. Ed mund G. Brown is working on a five - state water plan involving California, Arizona, Nevada Utah and New Mexico, according to Hugo Fisher, administrator of the California Water Re sources Agency. Fisher, a former state senator outlined the plan Thursday night at a meeting of the County Water Agencies Association. He said Brown is negotiating for a regional water develop ment plan that "recognizes the economic and social interdependence of all areas involved while at the same time gives due cognizance to the priority rights of each area." The plan is to improve on Interior Secretary Stewart Udall's proposal to co-ordinate water programs in a 190,000 - square- mile area. Fisher said the plan would "bring an end to disputes over water rights and would in»ro-| duce h a r m o n y in working to| meet mutual needs. He pointed to San Diego as an example of the needs, saying the county's two Colorado River aqueducts deliver about 200,000 - acre-feet of water yearly. Four and one-half times that amount will be needed by the year 2020, Fisher said. He also said the state would seek a federally-financed study of all potential sources of new water supply as part of the regional plan. Good Family Name "My father is a New Concord, Ohio, plumber, a well - known name in that community, and that's how I got my good name," the famed astronaut said. This was seen as a dart at Help Administration Program He said that as a Senator, he hoped he would be able to help Johnson reach the objectives of that party.

Glenn's decision has touched off turmoil within the party because most of the organization leaders were set to pledge support to fiery Sen. Stephen Young in the party convention Monday in the same ballroom where Glenn made his announcement. The astronaut's wife, Anna, his parents, Mr. and Mrs. John H. Glenn, and his wife's par ents, Dr. and Mrs. H. W. Cas tor, all of New Concord, were on the platform with him. Glenn's parents are registered Democrats, his wife's parents registered Republicans. The 42-year-old Glenn, who had never announced a party affiliation until today, said he considered himself somewhat independent, "and, to be com- pletly honest, I have voted both ways." He said that although state and national Republican leaders had met with him in Washington last week, he was never asked by any Republican to run as a candidate on their ticket.

Conley, Smith, and Nugent were said to have been accused by the revolutionary government of sending out exaggerated reports on the situation in Zanzibar. Sources here said the newsmen were charged with illegal entry and then were ordered confined to their rooms in the hotel in which they were arrested. Charges "Lies" An Embassy spokesman here said President Karume stormed up to Picard while the diplomat was talking to the four newsmen at a Zanzibar hotel Thursday night. He charged the newsmen sent out stories full of "lies" nd that Picard had supplied them with false information, the spokesman said. "Why don't you recognize us?" Karume shouted at Picard, according to the spokesman. The United States and Britain despite requests from the six- day old rebel regime, had not recognized Karume's government. Okello. who was reported to have taken over the presidency has been directing military operations for the rebel regime since the week - end coup, in which an estimated 80 persons were killed and at least 500 injured. British Royal Navy ships moved in off Zanzibar today to evacuate women and children from the tense island. Telephone communications between the island nation and the outside world were cut and censorship was imposed on outgoing news dispatches.

"If we give an inch in the Canal zone, we invite attacks throughout the rest of the world," Nixon said. Nixon also was critical of United States' diplomatic relations with France. "The state department says the problem is only DeGaulle," Nixon said. "This is an erroneous and dangerous attitude. We have to work with DeGaulle, not around him or over him." He said DeGaulle represented a spirit of nationalism "that is manifested not only in Europe but throughout the world." He said U. S. foreign policy must address itself to the working out a "new solution to the new- nationalism in France and the rest of Europe." Earlier, Nixon refused to elaborate on earlier statements about the Republican presiden tial nomination. He said he will "work for the strongest" GOP candidate. He called Gov. William W. Scranton of Pennsylvania the "strongest potential candidate" for the party nod, but he said he did not think it likely Scranton would be "drafted" with "two strong candidates" such as Sen. Barry Gold water and New York Gov. Nelson Rockefeller in the running. Calls for prayers VATICAN CITY (UPI)—Pope Paul VI today urged Catholics throughout the world to join non-Catholics in renewed prayers for Christian unity, and called for public functions to thank God for the results of his Kzif Land pilgrimage. by stripping provisions from i the big tax cut bill to liberalize treatment of profits from stock and other personal property. The action meant a pickup in revenues for the treasury of about $260 million over the long run. It came as the Senate Finance Committee finished work on every section but one in the top priority $11.1 billion tax reduction measure passed by the House Sept. 25. That one remaining section was an estimated S9 billion slash in income tax rates for every American taxpayer. Chairman Harry F. Byrd, D- Va., announced that the individual rate cuts would be taken up next week. He said the committee would finish the bill sometime next week possibly by Wednesday. Byrd's comments indicated that Senate leaders will succeed in their efforts to fulfill a promise to President Johnson to get the bill to the floor by late this month or early next month. By a surprise 12 to 5 vote today, the 17-member panel eliminated from the House bill a treasury - opposed section that would give added tax relief to persons who profit from the sale of stocks and property. It was the one section that Treasury Secretary Douglas Dillon had appealed to the committee to junk when he launched the drive last Oct. 15 for Senate passage of the biggest tax cut in history. In an unexpected move, the committee tacked an administration-sponsored reform onto the bill Thursday by voting to raise oil and gas industry taxes an estimated $40 million a year. The panel accepted a proposal of the late President Kennedy to eliminate a tax credit advantage available to some U.S.- owned foreign oil and gas subsidiaries. The proposal, rejected by the House, would raise revenues an estimated $40 million a year.
