Macmillan Fails To Approve NATO Nuclear Program LONDON (UPI) — President Kennedy and British Prime Minister Harold Macmillan have approved a three-way strategy for the nuclear test ban negotiations in Moscow later this month, diplomatic sources said today. , * The sources said the twe/ Western leaders worked out a set of instructions for their special envoys during their weekend summit meeting hero. A joint communique issued at the conclusion of the talks Sunday also noted that Kennedy and Macmillan, as expected, failed to reach accord on the U.S.-proposed multinational nuclear force for the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). They decided to set the question aside because of British reluctance to join at this time. "No Rift" The communique underlined that there is no "rift" on the nuclear force plan, which West Germany has approved fully but which France rejects. British officials have questions about the plan's feasibility and the cost. The communique said Kennedy and Macmillan also discussed military aid to India for defense against Communist Chinese aggression, and the unstable situa­ tions in Laos and South Viet Nam. The sources said the thrue-way nuclear strategy for the Moscow talks provide for these courses: Ban on Tests —A comprehensive ban of all tests, including hard-to-detect underground explosions, with adequate control provisions and onsite inspections to police the agreement. —A partial test ban on atmospheric, underwater and surface nuclear explosions, to be controlled by national control systems and robot recorders in the three nuclear countries. This would leave the question of underground tests open. The Allies are not prepared to agree to an indefinite moratorium on such tests. —An offer to Russia to prove its claim that its scientific detection methods are sufficiently advanced to identify safely any suspicious explosion. ed St. Peter's Square. He then delivered a sermon in nine different languages, aiming some of his remarks at Catholics behind the Iron Curtain, and pledging to defend the church against internal errors and external threats. Bright searchlights and flicker ing torches lit the vast square as the- triple-t i e r e d papal crown, decked in gold, silver and jewels, was placed on the pontiff's head. The 250,000. persons who viewed the three-hour ceremony on a hot summer evening broke into loud applause and wild.cheering when the Pope was carried back to the Vatican Palace on his gestatorial chair. Smiles and Waves Pope Paul, who had sat unsmiling during the coronation, smiled and waved to the crowd. It was the first time in a century that a Pope was crowned in the square instead of inside the St. Peter's Basilica. The pontiff opened his homily, or sermon, in Latin and then turned to his native Italian, reaffirming his intention to resume the Ecumenical Council. He asked God "that this great event confirm faith in the church, freshen its moral energies, strengthen and make its form better fit to the requirements of the time. .." He then spoke in French, English, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Polish and Russian vowing to "defend the Holy Church from the errors of doctrine and customs, which inside and outside of its boundaries are threatening its integrity and shadowing its beauty."

Kennedy said today he opposed any changes in the administration's civil rights bill that would "water down" the proposed ban on discrimination in public accommodations. New Break in Red Combine Has Appeared BERLIN (AP)—A possible new break in the Communist facade has appeared. Romania's veteran Red leader, Georghe Gheorghiu- Dej, is shunning the top level talks Soviet Premier Khrushchv is holding in East Berlin with his European allies. Khrushchev told an East Ger man audience Sunday night that communism stands "as firm as granite." But the gap in the ranks of the European Reds standing glumly around him underlined the growing crisis in the world Communist movement. Albania Missing Also absent—as expected—was Albania which has supported Com' munist China in its dispute with the Soviet Union. Romania's absence was all the more glaring since Krhsuchev presumably summoned his satellite chiefs to muster support for con ference with the Red Chinese which opens in Moscow Friday. Red China declared today that its quarrel with the Soviet Union had grown from an ideological dispute to a question of govern ment relations. It said it still intends to send a delegation to Moscow to discuss differences but emphasized that it will hold to its .tough line. Youth Waiting For 2nd Wind Drowns in Lake CARTERVILLE, 111. (UPD-A youth swimming with three other boys who told them to go on ahead back to shore and that he would follaAV them after he caught his "second wind" drowned Sunday. Phillip Popham, 18, Herrin, went under as the boys neared shore. His body was recovered about an hour after the incident. The boys said they were floating on air mattresses about 75 yards out into the lake near- here when they decided to return. Popham told them he would follow in a little while but he was tired. Kennedy said a federal of the most embittering forms of racial discrimination" that stamps a "badge of inferiority" on Negroes. "White people of whatever kind even prostitutes, narcotics pushers, Communists or bank robbers—are welcome at establishments which will not admit certain of our federal judges, ambassadors and countless members of our armed forces," Kennedy said. To the Limit The President's brother threw his full support behind the proposal to outlaw discrimination in hotels, theaters, restaurants and stores and other facilities open to the public. • Kennedy urged passage of a separate accommodations bill just five days after he appealed to the House Judiciary Committee to enact the entire civil rights package. / The attorney genera] dismissed as a "smokescreen" the arguments raised by some Republicans and southern Democrats that the bill would seriously infringe on property rights. "The only right it will deny is the right to discriminate—to embarrass and humiliate millions of our citizens in the pursuit of their daily lives," he said. Notes Cellcr Proposal Kennedy took note of the proposal by Chairman Emanuel Celler, D-N.Y., of the House Judiciary Committee that Congress should exclude business establishments from coverage if their volume of sales was below a certain point. He said the standards for coverage in the administration's bill would be plain enough in the great majority of cases. "We intentionally did not make the size of a business the criterion for coverage because we believe that discrimination by many small establishments imposes a cumulative burden on interstate commerce," Kennedy said. Test for Coverage Kennedy said public accommo- ban was needed to stop "one dations would be covered if they met the following tests: —Public lodgings, if Lhey are public and the lodgers are transients. —Place of amusement, if they customarily present entertainment which moves in interstate commerce. —Restaurants and retail stores, (1) if a substantial part of their business is with interstate' travelers or (2) if a substantial part of their wares has moved in interstate commerce or (3) if their activities substantially affect interstate commcYce or (4) if they are an integral part of another business covered by any of the provisions listed above. .

S. ban on travel* of Cuba, flew here from Czechoslovakia Sunday in hopes of meeting Premier Fidel Castro. They ignored State Department warnings of possible five - year prison sentences and up to $5,000 fines and went more than 8,000 miles out of their way to make the trip. Group leader Levi Laub, of Columbia University, said the students will spend a month in Cuba as guests of the Cuban Institute for Friendship Among Peoples (ICAP). He said they had no political motives for the trip and merely wanted to "see what's taking place in this island '90 miles from Florida^ as we arc tired of canned reports, misleading synopses, garbled accounts, half truths and no-truths." The students arrived aboard ; Cuban Airlines plane from Prague for the visit, which is being paid'for by the Cuban government. They were welcomed at the air-; port by Student Union leaders of Havana University and Robert Williams, former official of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), currently a fugitive frcm a kidnaping charge stemming from a racial clash in Monroe, N. C. Claim Reds Tried To Involve U. S. * LONDON (AP) — Britain announced today its join efforts with the Soviet Union to restore peace to troubl ed Laos have collapsed. The British blamed the Russians for the failure. The Foreign Office said the Russians wanted to pu the blame for renewed fighting in the Southeast Asian kingdom on the United States and right - wing elements. The British insist the pro -Communist Pathet Lao is responsible. Since the two countries could not agree, the British said the only course was to hand the problem back to the 14 nations that took part in the Geneva conference on Laos. Among them are Communist China and the United States. The British statement was not interpreted in official quarters as a suggestion that there should be another Geneva conference on Laos. "The British policy," said a Foreign Office spokesman, "is that the present Geneva agreement should be made to work." Arc Co-Chairmcn Britain and the Soviet Union are co-chairmen of the Laotian peace setup and in that capacity have had a special responsibility to see that terms of the settlement are fulfilled. Announcing the development at a news conference, the' Foreign Office said Foreign Secretary Lord Home wrote to Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei A. Gromyko June 27 expressing regret that they had been unable to agree. "Since we do not seem able to reach agreement, I suggest that the best thing is for us to submit the whole question to the judgment of the signatories of the Geneva agreement and of public opinion," Home wrote. The documents in question were transmitted to all the interested countries today. Home's action followed the receipt of a message from Gromyko June 25, in which the Russiar proposed that a British - Soviet message be sent to all the signatory states. Gromyko's message would havel aid most of the blame for the collapse of the Laotian peace efforts on the Laotian rightists, the United States , and members of^ the eight-nation Southeast Asian Treaty Organization. The Western view is that ten-w^y sion in Laos has been created by^ST pro-Communist Pathet Lao attacks on positions held by neutral forces.

The new system is called "zip code" and is designed to help speed mail deliveries. The department planned to mail 72 million cards to every mailbox in the country. The card informs the addressee of his five- digit ''zip code" number and provides a brief explanation of the system. The Post-Office Department wants everyone to put the number after the name of his city and state when writing his return address. The number also should be used in addressing mail to persons who have included it in their return addresses. x "Zip code," or zone improvement program, has been invented for the day when all letters will be pre-sorted by machines. 100 YEARS LATER—Grandsons of two famous men cheerfully greeted each other in Gettysburg, Pa., as they flanked former President iOwight D.
