Negotiations With Spain In Progress When the United States and Spain negotiated their 1953 agreement on U.S. naval and air bases in Spain, both sides won important benefits. The United States won a valuable forward base against Com munist aggression and Spain a much-needed economic shot in the arm plus a start toward reentry into the family .of nations. Now< amid considerable secrecy but with some of the facts known,. they are approaching re-negotiation of the agreement which expires in September. Both sides seek certain gains. A somwhat similar agreement with Portugal on the strategic U.S. base in the Azores' already has expired, with negotiations at present, reported deadlocked but by no means abandoned. Affects U.S. Planning Both the Spanish and the Portuguese agreements bear heavily on U.S. strategic planning, especially since President Charles de Gaulle's snub of the Atlantic Alliance, the gain in Communist voting strength in Italy and U.S. hopes for a mixed-nation naval force based on the nuclear-tipped Polaris missile. All of these conditions- would seem to be cards in Generalissimo Francisco Franco's hands. There are indications the Spanish asking price is not cheap. | The 1953 agreement gave the United States the use of three air bases by the Strategic Air Command, the big naval base at Rota and other installations including naval depots, radar sites and a pipeline system. There is evidence now that the United States would like to make the Rota base available to NATO submarines carrying nuclear ballistic missiles. Seeks NATO Membership In return, Franco wants either Spanish membership in NATO or, at the least, closer political ties with the United States. . Spanish membership in NATO has in the past been adamantly opposed by the low countries, Denmark and Norway' and, to a lesser degree, by Britain. Spain also wants an increase in economic aid which since 1953 has totaled more than a billion dollars, plus modern military THE WIZARDS OF SPACE OD Golesburg Regisfef-MaiJ, Gqlesburg, 111. Tuesday, June 25, 1963 JL who had spent a week with Mrs. Edd Peterson, returned td h«f home Wednesday. By Don Ooklty and John Una w it Next to manned flight, the most exciting exploits of the early space age have been the first attempts to send instruments beyond the earth to the moon and into interplanetary space. 'Responsible 1 for America's efforts in this area is National Aeronautics and Space Administration's Jet Propulsion Laboratory. JPL, located in PSsadena, Calif., differs from NASA's other centers in that it is operated under contract by California Institute of Technology. It has a staff of 3,800. Its spending in fiscal 1964 may reach as high as $400 million. JPL's major spacecraft programs .are: Ranger (hard moon landing), Surveyor (soft moon land* ing), Mariner (interplanetary explorer) and Voyager (advanced planetary explorer). NASA has spent over $100 million on the Ranger program so far. There have been five flights and five failures and the program is behind schedule. Mariner has been delayed because the Centaur rocket, designed to power it into interplanetary .orbit, has experienced constant trouble. Voyager awaits the powerful Saturn booster, now under development. Between now and 1967, NASA plans to send about 14 Rangers and 17 Surveyors to the moon to prepare the way for the first astronauts. The 750-pound Surveyor, shown in first panel,' will land a complete laboratory. Color* stereo television cameras will examine the lunar landscape; other instruments will analyze lunar soil and radio the findings back to earth. Half a dozen Mariners will be sent to Venus and Mars in 1964 and 1965. Toward the end of the decade and into the next, JPL will launch even more spectacular deep-space probes. One will arc through the tail of a comet in 1967, when a number of comets are due to appear. Probes are being considered .for the smallest and largest planets, Mercury (1967) and Jupiter (early 1970s). Another probe will be launched around the sun out of the plane of the ecliptic; that is, at an. angle to the plane in which the planets orbit. Finally, a probe will be sent as dose to the sun as 10 million miles to study its corona and spectacular solar flares. NEXT: Rover, RIFT, SNAP and Kiwi equipment including rockets and missiles. On its part, the United States would prefer that the agreement continue much as it is and to wait as long as possible to determine how Europe's strategic and political alignments finally are to work out. It further has warned Spain- that, because of the unfavorable outflow of U. S. gold, free military aid to Spain will have to stop. That, instead, she will expect Spain to spend some $250 million of her own money on new equipment. The deadlock in the negotiations'! with Portugal is on an issue less complex but equally difficult. The 20-year-old agreement with Portugal expired last Dec. 31 but use of the base which is a strategic link with Europe and Africa, lias continued. Boiled down to simplicities, the Portuguese are insisting that the United States abandon its support in the United Nations of the Afro- Asian nations demanding independence for Angola "and Mozambique, Portugal's two big territories in Africa, Both the Portuguese and the Spanish negotiations go far beyond the mere question of bases.
