Built After Inspection An Air Force spokesman said the suite, 100 feet from the hospital's delivery room, was renovated at a cost of almost, $5,000 after Mrs. Kennedy's doctors inspected it with emergency needs in mind'. The remodeling of the hospital suite, including soundproofing for the rooms, was described by the Air Force as part of a $1.2 million renovation program for the entire 500-bed hospital. ] Somehow the suite fell into the renovation schedule after the first lady's physicians, obstetrician John W.

(AP)—Scarred Democrats and Republicans emerged today from the cauldron of the 55th annual Gover- with few political benefits to harvest. Gov. Nelson A.

But Sen. Barry Goldwaler, R- Ariz., who was represented by supporters, nevertheless didn't lose any ground among GQP state executives who believe he is the man to bgat. GOP Gov. George Ropiney of Michigan, counted as a possible entry in the Republican presidential contest, chalked out a position as a strong civil rights advocate but as an angry critic of more federal'direction of the nation's economic ills. To Republican Gov. John Anderson Jr. of Kansas came the honor of th$ conference chairmanship after only two years in office. He succeeds Democratic Gov. Albert D. Rosellini of Washington. The chairmanship rotates between the parties in alternate years. The Republicans had to be de- t clared the publicity winners. But the Democrats kept their lines intact for a pitch for Southern state support of Kennedy's certain bid for re-election next year. t t V L L Stephen Ward Admits Being Immoral Man LONDON (UPI) Ward, — Dr. Stephen that he is a " testi- admitting "thoroughly immoral man. ficd today at his vice trial that he thoroughly disapproves of any woman who takes money "for sex alone."

(UPI) — The "dean" of the University of Wisconsin's food service, Beulah Dahle, had a few tips today upon announcing her retirement.

Praises Decision Rep. Oren Harris, D-Ark., chairman of the House Commerce Committee, praised. the railroads' decision and said it was one which was made "in the entire public interest of the United States. "On behalf of the committee anv. the Congress, I want to express our sincere thanks for the consideration given by you and your industry," he told Loomis. Harris said the 30-day postponement "should give plenty of time to Congress to take whatever action is needed." He said it was "a better way to legislate." MOSCOW (UPI) — The United States, Britain and the Soviet Union today initialled a partial nuclear test ban treaty. The action dramatically set the stage for a possible breakthrough on a wide range of cold war problems. Initialling of the treaty was the first formal, substantial agreement between East and West since the Ghana Loses Support of Its Neighbors UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. OJPI) Ghana's demand for Portugal's suspension from the United Nations unless it frees its African territories by mid-September met dwindling support in a divided African group today. h Judge Halts Work Stoppage With Temporary In j unction CHICAGO (UPI) A U.S. district judge granted a temporary injunction Wednesday to forestall a strike against the Illinois Central Railroad which .had been scheduled to begin today. Four-on - train brotherhoods called the strike over what they called a change in work rules, But Judge Joseph Sam Perry, on< request of the railroad, issued a restraining order against the brotherhoods and set Aug. 1 for a hearing on a permanent injunction. He also gave the brotherhoods I 10 days in which to show cause why the injunction should not be granted. The brotherhoods claimed the company issued a directive which switched the place for workers to report on and off duty at East St. Louis. This, they contended, was a change in work rules. Involved in the dispute are the Brotherhood of Railroad Trainmen, the Brotherhood of Firemen and Enginemen, the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and the Order of Railway Conductors and Brakemen. Austrian pact was signed eight years ago. The nuclear treaty was initialed at Spiridonovka Palace by W. Averell Harriman for the United States, Lord Hailsham for Britain, and Froeign Minister Andrei Gromyko for the Soviet Union. It places a ban on tests in the atmosphere, in outer space and under water, but it does not ban underground nuclear experiments. Needs Senate Approval The treaty, which still must be approved by the U.S. Senate and the British Parliament, was agreed upon after five frustrating years of sometimes bitter nuclear negotiations. Coming, as it does while the Soviet quarrel with Communist China has reached its most bitter point, the partial treaty already has given both Western and Communist observers here a surge of optimism about the future course of East-West relations. There is talk of a possible SUHI 1 mit meeting shortly in Geneva where Berlin and Germany would be discussed. The question of Berlin stands as one of the focal points of East-West friction. The present treaty does not include a provision for banning underground nuclear tests because of the Soviet refusal to ac- what the adequate inspection to prevent cheating. The West demands at least sev6n annual on-site inspections, while the Russians earlier this year said they would not go beyond two or three. Initialed in Private Initialing of the treaty took place in private. Before the treaty can come into | force it must be signed and then ratified by the Big Three governments. Harriman told correspondents of State Dean tries for discipline of that Secretary Rusk' would to Moscow shortly for come the signing of the treaty. The partial nuclear test ban The Security Council, debating the demand of 32 African coun- Portugal, called off today f s meetings while a nine-nation drafting committee worked on a resolution on the situation. The council was scheduled to meet Friday morning. Ghanaian Ambassador Alex Quaison-Sackey created confusion when he demanded Wednesday that Portugal be suspended unless it. complies with U.N. resolutions calling for self-determination in Angola and by the time the the General Assembly convenes on Sept. 17. The recent Addis Ababa summit conference of African leaders designated Tunisia, Liberia. Sierra Leone and Madagascar to present charges against Portugal's overseas policy in the Mozambique next session of treaty was understood to include ar "escape clause" whereby the Big Three could resume testing if experiments by non - signatory ; overseas policy in the Security nations — presumably France and i Council. Although Quaison-Sackey Communist China — endangered is a recognized loader of the Af- their security. rican group, prevailing diplomatic opinion was that he spoke only for his own country in presenting his stringent demands. At any rate, Quaison - Sackey did not put his outspoken call for action into resolution form for vote by the council.

"They've finally gotten the, word we've hit town," Nixon said, staring toward the car. "I think the least we can do is tell them good night." An American escort advised against it, and the Nixon party returned to West Berlin by taxi. In the night club, Nixon played | the Missouri Waltz on the piano and told the customers, "This is to a former political opponent." The crowd hand and ask for his autograph. "Don't you ever forget that we're not all Red here," sairl one. "We worry at times that we've been forgotten," said another. "Don't worry, we'll never forget you," Nixon told him.

Fedorenko, denounced by Portugal Wednesday for "flights of fancy and a long list of falsehoods" in the case, urged earlier that the council order the Portuguese out of Africa by the end of 1963.
