4 Golesbu isfer-Mall. Golesbu 'Thercl Tuesdo 9 6 First Key By PETER EDSON WASHINGTON (NftA) now, the United States has insist* The ed ihmust have such inspections. two most important words to remember in connection with the new American-British-Russian nuclear test ban agreement are that this is admittedly just a "first slop" toward reduction of international tension and strengthening of peace. American officials emphasize that it would be wrong to think that initialing of this limited agreement indicates any new direction in Soviet foreign policy or the goals of international communism. While the treaty preamble proclaims that its principal aim is "achievement of an agreement on general and complete disarmament under strict international controls," that objective may not be realized for a long time. The treaty does not provide for inspection to verify blasts that might be of nuclear origin. Up to Russia has opposed inspections as spying. THE REASON given for what appears to be United vStates surrender on this point is that no on-site inspection is needed to detect tests in the atmosphere, in outer space or under water, which are. covered by the agreement. The United States, the United Kingdom and Soviet Russia can check on each other's clandestine testing by atmospheric measure* ment of radiation and fallout. Launching satellites into outer space is of course expensive, but it can be done if considered necessary to check on far-out nuclear testing. Seismographic, hydro-acoustic or even water sampling tests for radioactivity can effectively police underwater nuclear explosions. eluded in the nuclear test ban agreement to get around the present inability to detect it. A ban on underground testing is therefore deferred for later negotiation as an amendment to the treaty, after detection methods hftve been perfected by the scientists. FURTHER STEPS for making the new agreement effective may not be completed much before the end of this year. After the initialing will come the formal signing in Moscow. The treaty will then go before the United States Senate for hearings in which military and civilian leaders who fear that the United States is surrendering its security will have their say. After ratification by the Russian government, the British parliament and a two-thirds majority of the Senate, a proclamation signed 4 would put the agreement into full fofce. Other nations will then be given a chance to deposit their ratifications in Washington, London and Moscow. This provision will separate the from the bad. If the United good guys France, Red China, Underground testing was not in- by the three heads of government Arab Republic, Israel or any other country that has been reported toying with the development of its own nuclear force doesn't sign up, it will be identified as a bad hat. Signatory countries can then take such measures as they see fit to reform or isolate the rion- signers. Avoidance of nuclear weapons production by more nations is one of the principal purposes of the test ban treaty. The treaty may be amended on motion of one-third of the countries signing it, on approval by two-thirds of the signers. But the United States, Britain and Russia are given veto p6Kr6t #V6f amendments. Any country can withdraw from the agreement on three months 1 notice if it considers it* dtipremo interests have been jeopardised. Testing of weapons by A bad-* guy country might be considered such an excuse. These are major loopholes in the agreement. * THE IB -NATION conference on genera 1 dlsa rmamen t Is now scheduled to resume in Geneva, Switzerland, July 30. Ambassador Charles Stelle is the top U. S. negotiator. There is scant hope that this conference will immediately begin making progress on gradual arms reduction under full inspection. But it is hoped other limited agreements might be reached, preparing the way for general disarmament, one step at a time, many years ahead. It's slow business. Id War Educa tion Seems to Lack Reality IP' EDITORIAL By JOHN CHAMBERLAIN LAST WEEK I sat through a panel discussion of Cold War education at the Governors Conference in Miami Beach. Aside from the introduction by Gov. Farris Eryant of Florida of several aerial photographs of Fidel Castro's prison for political dissenters on the Isle of Pines, the panel moved on such a rarefied academic high level that it proved suffocating. Since the governors were hardly a hundred miles away from the Cold War reality of a thoroughly subverted and stricken Cuba, it is too bad that they did not avail themselves of the "education" that they might have gotten by mixing with some of the thousands of Cuban refugees who throng the Miami region. It may contribute to the education of high school students in Utah or North Carolina if the courses a bull going into the arena.

But 4 a strict diet of abstractions can put the young mind to sleep. The problem that none of the governors on the panel, with the exception of Gov. Bryant, seemed to recognizze was the one of conveying what it feels like to be faced with communism in the concrete. IT WOULD have been easy to remedy the panel deficiency by summoning, say, a couple of exiled Cuban court reporters who, from a Miami base, keep a strict monitoring watch on Havana radio broadcasts, or, better yet, some young Cubans who recently took a small boat back to their home island and tangled with some of Castro's militia. They had to kill a couple of militiamen to make their escape, and they performed the astounding feat of capturing two uniformed Castromen and bringing thef back to Florida. The U .S., naturally, returned the Castro- men to Havana. We don't believe in tweaking Castro's beard. The reality of the Cold War, as it is fought in southern Florida, is that our government isn't interested in helping anybody fight it. We reserve a cold malevolence for people who take the Cold War seriously. Helicopters keep close watch on suspicious looking small boats; to send agents into Cuba, the exiles have to contend not only with their enemies but with the organized police and military power of a great nation that should be on their side. The British in the Bahamas cooperate v/ith the U.S. Coast Guard and Navy in protecting Castro against intrusions, and the British even do a fair of trading with the classes were to be permitted to translate from the transcripts of the Cuban exiles' monitoring services" which keep track of every loud whisper to the south of us. The students might learn, for example, that it is Fidel Castro's tactics to refer to the build-up of a refugee military band in Nicaragua as something that is being promoted by partisans of the dead Dominican dictator Trujillo. (This is, of course, Fidel Castro's idea of a smear.) They might get some refracted news of the extensive Castro-aided communist campaign of terror being conducted in Caracas, the capital of Venezuela. The terror in Caracas, so the Castroites boast and the bearded tyrant who has been do- Cuban exiles lament, is even fur- communist FALN in Venezuela and ranchers to the south of Caracas now carry guns to bed with them, as the British settlers in Kenya did at the height of the Mau Mau disturbances. THIS IS the Cold War that did not obtrude into the governors' panel discussion at the Hotel Dcauville in Miami Beach save when Florida's Gov. Bryant brought out his pictures. The governors know that our official federal policy is to keep Americans from trading with Castro. But Gov. Romney of Michigan would have been interested to hear some of the refugees from Havana tell about auto repair parts, presumably of Michigan origin, reaching Cuba by way of Mexicana Airlines. ing his best to contribute to the subversion of the old colony of British Guiana not far over the southern horizon.

Although dilute hydrochloric acid was used for many years to treat persons with gastritis and no acid in the stomach, there is no evidence that this does any good and the practice has been largely discontinued. If you have anemia with your gastritis it would seem more appropriate to treat this condition. (} — I have been told that I have narcolepsy and that there is no cure for it. What causes it and what is the outcome? an overpowering desire to sleep which can, however, be fought off for a short while to an uncontrollable lapse into sleep that may come on when one in engaged in talking, standing, playing cards, or any other normal activity. Since an attack may come on while the victim is driving an auto, such a person should not drive. In some persons the sleep is so light that touching the sleeper or calling his name will rouse him but others cannot be awakened. Since they may fall from a standing or sitting position while in a public place, they may be taken to a hospital. This is a great annoyance as there is nothing to be done but release the victim when he comes to. The outlook is favorable in that, unless one is doing something hazardous when the attack comes on, the condition in no way shortens life. In some persons it can be controlled by taking large doses of amphetamine (obtainable^ only on a physician's prescription ). Tranquilizers should be avoided as they have been found to make the condition worse. Is it possible for daily ex- jwsure to cigar smoke to cause lung cancer? I do not smoke myself.

Twenty-seven nations who ride the U. S. gravy train have yet, however, to be persuaded. There are two statutes designed to end the Cuban trade. The first flatly bans any U. S. aid to a "country which permits any ships under its registry to carry to Cuba" petroleum or other strategic materials. IN THE FIRST six months of 1963, tankers from the United Kingdom, Greece, Italy, and Norway carried oil to Cuba. The Executive is given no discretionary authority. Under the law, U. S. aid must immediately be cut off. What happened? As of March 9, the United Kingdom had received $6.2 million in aid since the statute went into effect; Greece, $97 million; Norway, $41.2* million, and Italy, $87,000. The second restriction denies lid to any country that permits ships under its registry to enter Cuban ports with goods of any kind. The President is given authority to waive this provision if, in reports to appropriate committees of House and Senate, he deems it to be in the national interest. THE EVIDENCE indicates, however, that President Kennedy has deemed to ignore this particular statute too. Inquiry made of the Congressional committees shows that no Presidential report required under law has been forwarded from the White House. Representative Laird insists the President is violating the "law of the land" in not enforcing statutes passed by Congress and signed by his own hand. The Constitution, he feels, is clear: "The Constitution, and the laws of the United States, which shall be made in pursuance thereof. . . shall be the supreme law of the land." The White House has no comment on the charges by Rep. Laird. CONGRESSMAN * Frank Bow, Ohio Republican, is upset over the growing practice of radio and TV stations to sign off not with the "Star-Spangled Banner" but "Hail to the Chief," instead. He quotes figures showing that more than 160 stations across the nation now use a recently-recorded version of "Hail to the Chief," the 150-year-old Presidential sa­ fer and his followers from continue to Democratic win approval strategists. The Democratic National Committee has rushed off the presses a special edition of its official publication, the Democrat, devoted entirely to the ' 'radical right." Prominently displayed are Rockefeller's attacks on his fellow Republicans. Rocky wins the kudos, too, of labor big-shots, who call, his attack on "radical subversives" a "national service of the highest order." He wins the praise in this latest issue of AFL-CIO News.
