Mansfield reported the schedule after he and other Democratic congressional leaders had their weekly White House breakfast. He said the plan is for the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to hear State Department witnesses Monday, Defense Department witnesses Tuesday and Atomic Energy Commission witnesses Wednesday. Mansfield said the Foreign Relations Committee, headed by Sen. J. W. Fulbright, D-Ark., will give expeditious consideration to the treaty. Fulbright was among six senators who witnessed the formal signing of the treaty in Moscow Monday. House speaker John W. McCormack of Massachusetts said the leadership told Kennedy the tax bill is going along very fast in the House Ways and Means Committee. Soviets Fire 'Cosmos 19' Into Space MOSCOW (UPI) - The Soviet Union today launched an unmanned earth satellite, the official Tass news agency reported. The brief news agency announcement said "A routine launching of an artificial earth satellite, 'Cosmos 19', was carried out in the Soviet Union today." "The satellite carries scientific apparatus designed to continue researches in outer space in accordance with the program announced by Tass on* March 16, 1962," it said. The launching came on the second anniversary of the 17-orbit flight of Soviet cosmonaut Gherman Titov. A second Tass announcement said "Cosmos 19" had an initial orbiting time of 92.2 minutes. It said its apogee (farthest distance from the earth) was 323 miles and its perigee (closest distance to the earth) was 168 miles. Following its usual practice. Tass failed to give the weight of the satellite. gotiations, said that for one thing, the United States would withdraw tariff concessions it has made on items in which the European Common Market countries do $46 million in export trade with the United States per year. Hearings to determine the extent of U.S. tariff increases will begin Sept. 4. Herter issued a list of 19 items from which the United States, after public hearings, will select those on which to withdraw the concessions it has made to Common Market exporters. Wine Tops List The biggest single item is wine, accounting for $22*4 million in sales per year to the United States. The next largest item is made up of trucks and buses, on which sales by Common Market countries to the United States are $14.8 million per year. Other principal items include photographic papers, film, gelatin, brandy and electric shavers. Herter said the United States "regrets" that the Common Market has refused "to reduce the current very high level of protection on poultry imports" into the area. He said West Germany had increased duties on U. S. poultry "repeatedly, from 4.9 cents per pound to the present 13.43 cents per pound." The United States, Herter said, "has patiently and repeatedly sought to obtain modifications in this system to make it less restrictive." All efforts having failed, and the trade of the United States having been "unreasonably restricted," Herter said, the United States now intends to exercise its rights under the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trades (GATT). This action includes withdrawing concessions which have been made to Common Market members to the extent necessary to balance the damage done the American economy. ILL—Former French Premier Robert Schuman, a pioneer of European unity, is reported in a grave condition following a stroke. The elder statesman is 77 years of age. UNIFAX Bandits Chop Off Heads of 42 Victims BOGOTA, Colombia (UPI)—Machete-wielding bandits beheaded 42 persons Monday in assaults on four vehicles on a highway about 60 miles northwest of Bogota, according to an army announcement. The announcement said the bandits stopped a bus and three government dump trucks at a point on the highway between the towns of La Dorada and Victoria in eastern Caldas State. The occupants of the vehicles were forced into a small house near the highway, robbed and be headed one at a time, the army said. The victims reportedly were public works department laborers and peasants on their way to market. The incident occurred in an area where bandits have massa cred thousands of persons in recent years despite army efforts to maintain order. Hiroshima Pauses On Anniversary of Atom Bomb Attack HIROSHIMA, Japan (AP) — The people of Hiroshima paused today to mourn the victims of history's first atom bomb attack, made on their city 18 years ago today. But they took heart from the signing of the partial nuclear test ban treaty in Moscow. At 8:15 a.m.—the exact time that the American B29 "Enola Gay" dropped the bomb on Aug. 6, 1945 71-Year-Old Pro THORNE, England (UPI) — Mrs. Amy Cliffe, a 71-year-old grandmother, was barred from this Yorkshire village's annual walking race Monday because she was a "professional." swarm of doves wheeled into the air and the Hiroshima peace bell began its sorrowful toll. A crowd of 15,000 stood with bowed heads for a minute of silence before the simple, arched memorial to the city's atomic dead. Mayor Shinzo Hamai, dressed in black, referred to the Moscow treaty in his memorial address, expressing "great gratification that at long last a pact for the partial banning of nuclear weap- Red Chinese Reports Confirm Authenticity of US Documents TOKYO (AP)—The U.S. State Department's publication of documents telling of unrest and near- revolt in Red China's army in 1960-61 confirms what the Chinese themselves have hinted—there was major trouble. The documents also substantiate outside assessments of what the shakeups and changes of that time and earlier meant. The beginning of the Red army disaffection dates from 1958, when party chairman Mao Tze-tung, boss of Red China, launched a speeded up industrial and agri­ cultural program to bring peasants into a vast network of rural communes. Mao took the drastic step against the advice of Soviet Premier Khrushchev. Marshal Peng Teh-huai, defense minister, recognized that Mao's dispute with Khrushchev could lead to withdrawal of Soviet help to the Chinese army. Peng opposed Mao's plan and was reported to have communicated his views to Khrushchev. He was dismissed in September 1959 and his name has not been mentioned by the Chinese since. ons has been concluded by the United States, the United Kingdom and the Soviet Union." The memorial ceremony was brief and restrained, in marked contrast to the confusion and political bickering which broke up the opening Monday night of the Communist-dominated ninth world conference against hydrogen and atom bombs. Delegates from Red China, Soviet Russia and many other countries were present at the commemoration today, but they were relegated to the background.

(AP) - Election officials kept an uneasy watch for Negro vote-ins today as an estimated 450,000 Mississippians began voting in the Democratic primary. The racial tension climaxed a campaign which centered on civil rights and the Kennedy administration. The four gubernatorial candidates, all segregationists, spent most of the campaign emphasizing their opposition to Kennedy racial policies. The four are: —Former Gov. J. P. Coleman, 49, an Ackerman lawyer who headed the state government from 1956-60. Fourth Time —Lt. Gov. Paul Johnson, 47, a Hattiesburg lawyer making his fourth bid for governor. —Robert Mason, 65, a Magee welder who polled 2,704 votes in his 1959 race for governor. —Charles Sullivan, 38-year-old Clarksdale lawyer who as an unknown finished a strong third in his race for governor four years ago. Polls opened at 7 a.m. CST and close at 6 p.m. Observers predicted a close vote necessitating a runoff Aug. 27. Coleman was expected to face Johnson or Sullivan in the runoff, with the Democratic nominee to go against Republican Rubel Phillips and independent Ed Bishop in the Nov. 5 general election. The winner will succeed Gov. Ross Barnett, prohibited by state law from succeeding himself. Barnett has followed Mississippi custom by taking no public part in the race for a successor. The vote-in plans reported by Negro sources would be an effort by unregistered persons to cast ballots under a state law permitting those wrongly omitted from poll lists to record their choices by affidavit. Foreign Ministers Probe for Chink in East-West Tensions SEEK FREEDOM—A small invasion force of Haitian exiles has crossed the border from the Dominican Republic at Fort Liberte. A spokesman for the group said they plan to take Cap Haitien and then would march south to Port Au Prince in their drive to oust dictator President Francois Duvalier.

Duvalier, the voodoo-preaching physician turned strongman, acknowledged Monday night there was an invasion on Haiti's north coast. The Dominican frontier forces and navy were alerted after news of the invasion and Haiti charged that some of the invaders came from adjoining Dominican Republic, which shares the island of His- paniola with Haiti. Dominican President Juan Bosch conferred with his armed forces chiefs at the national palace. The newspaper Listin Diario reported that a number of Haitian officials have crossed into the Dominican Republic seeking asylum. Some Haitian soldiers also reportedly fled across the border. Haitian exile sources in Santo Domingo said at least 500 well- armed men, trained for guerrilla warfare, landed Monday at Fort Liberte, 18 miles east of Cap Hait­ ien, and quickly captured the towns of Fort Liberte, Derac, Trou and Limonade.

Gromyko, a crowd of 500 outside the skyscraper Foreign Ministry applauded them excitedly. The Muscovites mood reflected the optimistic glow with which the whole Soviet press greeted the nuclear ban and contrasted with ' the grim silence which has usually confronted Western statesmen here. Dine Together The three drove to a villa in the Lenin Hills to continue over *W lunch their exploratory talks intended to find out whether the nuclear ban had created a breakthrough in East-West relations that could lead to new peace moves. Among the steps considered was Premier Khrushchev's demand for a NATO-Warsaw treaty non- aggression pact. "We discussed matters of mu- HP tual interest relating to interna- ^ tional problems," Rusk told newsmen. The conference was to continue through lunch at the official re-' ception house in the Lenin Hills, the building where Chinese and Soviet delegates held their abor-, five meetings last month on the Peking-Moscow ideological dispute. Members of the U.S. Senate delegation who accompanied Rusk to Moscow were guests today of Soviet parliamentary leaders in the Kremlin. They will return to ^» Washington Wednesday. ^ The test ban treaty—pledging to abstain from nuclear weapon tests in the atmosphere, outer % j» space and under water — was w signed by the foreign ministers Monday. Soviet Premier Khrushchev called it the "first sprouts o \W international confidence" and W said his government "would do everything in its power for these , sprouts to develop and gain in \w strength." ™ Join in Chorus Rusk and Lord Home made similar pledges but neither laid any special emphasis on particular East-West issues remaining to be settled. Khrushchev, however, repeated his call for an East-West nonag- gression pact "to show all the peoples that the militarily most 1 |f powerful states...have reached V agreement among themselves with the aim of evading thermonuclear war." Khrushchev was expected to leave Moscow today for a Black Sea vacation. He has invited Rusk to visit his seaside dacha, and the U.S. secretary will probably fly down to Gagra, on the Soviet Riviera, on Thursday.
