Nuclear Test Ban Treaty Forms Debate By JAMES MARLOW Associated Press News Analyst WASHINGTON (AP) — World disarmament won't be one step nearer when the Senate finally votes its expected approval of a limited nuclear test ban treaty. A test ban—important as it is, perhaps, as an opening to better relations With' Russia — is a minor episode compared with disarmament. Under this treaty the United States and Russia will retain their full supply of nuclear bombs, enough to devastate the earth. They will go on testing underground to develop more weapons. The treaty simply bans tests in the atmosphere, outer space and in the oceans. Fire One Monday President Kennedy and, Monday, Secretary of State Dean Rusk, said this country will continue underground tests. One was fired Monday. The present debate over the wisdom of the test treaty is an insight into the debate ahead if this country ever considers a disarmament treaty. Disarmament seems unlikely in this generation, at least, no matter how much clamor smaller nations make about it. The United States, despite its expressed concern over the years about disarmament, would probably be the last to agree to it. There are several reasons. One of the most obvious is the failure of the United States and Russia this time to ban underground tests. U. S. Is Confident This country feels confident it can detect tests above ground but not under. To prevent cheating, it wants an inspection system. That would mean putting American inspectors in Russia and WANTED YOUNG LADY TO ASSIST OFFICE MANAGER " IN" LADIES' SHOP Experience helpful but not necessary.

WRITE BOX 706 c-o REGISTER-MAIL Russian inspectors in American territory, or international inspectors in both. The Russians complain inspection is spying. They wouldn't agree. Without inspectors, the United States wouldn't agree to ban underground tests. If the United States and Russia agreed to disarmament—an even more difficult inspection problem —the Senate would hardly approve without a check. Point to Problem The check would have to be constant. Then there's the problem of nuclear weapons. Disarmament without abolishing nuclear weapons wouldn't mean much. But the United States and Russia have nuclear weapons coming out of their ears. Would the Senate ever feel sure Russia was not hiding some? There's another problem: numbers. The Russians and Red Chinese have far more manpower than the West and could put more armies in the field. But nuclear weapons can destroy more territory and kill more people than all the armies. American nuclear weapons balance off Communist armies. Eyes Reversed Odds But if nuclear weapons were abolished by this country, the odds would be reversed any time the Communists wanted to break a disarmament treaty and rebuild their armies. The tendency since the war, in considering disarmament, has been to think in terms of the United States and Russia. Russia's relations with Red China have become wretched. The time might come when Russia would trust the United States enough to disarm. But could it trust the Red Chinese? And how could it dare to disarm unless the Chinese did, too. But the Chinese insist that war with the West is inevitable, that DeMolay Sets 35th Annual Convention The Southern Jurisdiction Order of DeMolay is sponsoring the 35th annual DeMolay state conclave* Aug. 23-24 on the campus of West* em Illinois University, at Ma* comb. The theme for the conclave is "First Let's Get Organized." It is centered around an entire reorganization of the structure of the state association. Close to 91 towns and cities will be present for the conclave. The Quincy and Macomb chapters of DeMolay will be the hosts of the conclave. The conclave will use the Fine Arts Building for business sessions, Corbin HaU and Hursh Hall for housing, and Corbin Hall dining room for five meals including the grand banquet Friday and the grand ball Saturday night. There are approximately 500 delegates expected to attend this meeting. One of the highlights will be the Illinois State DeMolay sweetheart contest with which there will be a parade through downtown Macomb, and the crowning of the state sweetheart. Dennis Gorman of Quincy is state master counselor, a student at the University of Illinois, and is president of the Interfraternity Council there. Don Richards of Moline is state junior counselor and is a student at WIU. Also at Western is Ken Clugston of Macomb, conclave coordinator. Clugston has been working with Dr. Carlson Crane since last September on this event. Dr. A. L. Knoblauch holds an honorary legion of honor award which is the highest award any young man can receive from De­ Molay. He, along with Gov. Otto Kerner, Harold Ross, grand master of the state Masonic Lodge, and other dignitaries, will be present. Advisers of the Macomb chapter are Harold Putman of Bushnell and Russell Vail, Macomb. fully, and therefore the West must be overwhelmed. How could the United States disarm with the Chinese loose in the world with that attitude: The Senate would have a nightmare over that. By one of the strangest paro- doxes in history the big powers have armed so much they're afraid to disarm. So long as they stay nuclear- aimed, they're afraid to take chances with each other. Fear has become an antidote for aggression and the search for capitalism won't surrender peace-peace has its roots in terror.

The first match took place on what is to be the only range of such distance in Illinois. Another, a military range at Springfield, is to be closed this year. Eyeing the bullseyes through iron and telescopic sights Sunday were 27 men from as far as Chicago, Wilton Junction, Iowa, Springfield, and LaCrosse, Wis. This range, and its companion 200 and 300-yard ranges, took the club 2V4 years to complete. The big one—the 1,000-yarder— has a telephone connecting the firing mound with the pit area, where the targets are located The pit area itself employs the new designs. The club plans a trap house at the range this fall. Rivoli's range is located on the Max Streeter farm, between New Windsor and Viola. Officers in the club, with a membership of 29 are William Hudson of Rock Island, president, and Ben Ratekin Jr. of New Windsor, secretary-treasurer. Other officials include Louis P Kness of Alpha, executive officer; Mel Sims of Viola, small bore chairman; Pat McVeigh of New Windsor, high power chairman, and Lane Petrie of New Windsor, pistol chairman. The club was chartered in 1959 by the National Rifle Association in Washington, DC.

Williams, (D-N.J.,), said today President Kennedy's proposed domestic Peace Corps would bring hope to "millions of Americans still living in poverty, deprivation and despair." Williams made the comments in remarks prepared for the opening found of Senate debate on the administration plan to create a national service corps of volunteers patterned after the successful overseas Peace Corps. The measure faced the cold reality of sharp opposition from determined foes. Senate GOP Leader Everett M. Dirksen, 111., served notice in advance that he would move to have the measure sent back to a committee pigeon hole. Failing this, Dirksen said, he hoped to muster enough opposition votes to take the bloom off the bill and lessen its chances for approval in a more hostile House. Sen. John G. Tower, R-Tex., said he would offer several civil rights amendments to require rious illness of her sister, Mrs. Arzella Thompson of Zephyrhills, Fla., who had been in the home of a sister, Mrs. Harold Jennings and her husband, Dr. Jennings. Leo Dickson of Winchester, Ky., has been visiting in the home of his sister, Mrs. Ethyl Pence. Rev. and Mrs. Charles Nowlen and family of Butte, Mont., are visting in the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Bill Hladek. that the corps be racially integrated, and barring any projects in areas which practice discrimination. Authorises Funds The bill authorises an initial outlay of $5 million to start the proposed program and recruit up to 300 volunteers. Enrollments would expand to 1,000 by June 30 of next year, and eventually reach 5,000 in perhaps three years. The cost would rise as the program expanded. Corpsmen would receive a minimal living allowance and a monthly stipend of $75. Volunteers — both youths and men and women of retired age — would assist such local projects as the mentally ill, help in rural and care of the elderly and disabled, urban slums and on Indian reservations. Backers argued that corps personnel, working under the supervision of local officials, would provide a "new dimension of service at home." The goal of the corps will be, "by the efforts of a few, to ignite the energies of many," a committee report explained. "By providing an opportunity for Americans to serve their nation in peace.. .the corps will reemphasize the traditional American precepts of neighborly concern and the value of local solutions to local problems." Issue Minority Report In an opposition minority report, Republican Sens. Tower and Len B. Jordan, Idaho, said that supporters made it sound as though a "vote against this bill is tantamount to a vote against Mother's Day." But Tower and Jordan said the program "would be a waste of taxpayers' money." "The whole thing is an act, a publicity stunt to draw attention. We can only conclude that the administration irt proposing this bill seeks to reap a political bar* vest of publicity..." A bull frog will try to swallow almost anything that moves, in* eluding birds, insects and mice.
