J. Howard Edmondson to help eke out a cliff-hanger Senate victory for President Kennedy's Domestic Service Corps. w When a coalition of Republicans and Southern Democrats appeared Wednesday to have the measure licked by a 44-44 tie roll call count, administration leaders produced the three Democrats to vote "yes" and record a 47-44 passage total. This was a victory of lean sorts for the Presidents proposal to set up a domestic model of the Peace Corps. He got Senate approval of a 2,000 member corps instead of the 5,000 strength he had recommended. Sen. William Proxmire, D-Wis., forced acceptance of an amendment to limit the program to two years and to put a $10 million ceiling on the second year in addition to the $5 million limit already in the measure for the first. Proxmire's move carried 51-34. As introduced the bill carried no termination date. House prospects for action this year have been considered almost nil. r Chinese Charge Russians Failed to Carry Out Deal TOKYO (AP) - Red China charged today that Soviet Premier Khrushchev welshed on a promise to teach it how to make atomic bombs in order to please President Eisenhower at the Camp David talks four years ago. In a biting statement broadcast by the New China News Agency, HOW THEY VOTED WASHINGTON (AP) - Here is how these Midwestern senators voted Wednesday as the Senate passed, 47-44, President Kennedy's National Service Corps bill, commonly known as the domestic peace corps bill: Illinois — Dirksen, R, against; Douglas, D, for. Indiana — Bayh, D, not voting but announced as paired for; Hartke, D, for. Wisconsin — Nelson, D, and Proxmire, D, both for. Iowa — Hickenlooper, R, and Miller, R, both against. Missouri — Symington, D, for; Long, D, not voting but announced as paired for. Woman Loses Fourth Race With Stork SAN DIEGO, Calif. (UPI) Mrs. Leslie Marshel, 24, lost another race with the stork Wednesday, but it didn't bother the Navy wife much — she's only won one of five races. Aided by her 27-year-old husband, Wednesday's race ended in the family car on the way to Paradise Valley Hospital where both mother and child were reported in good condition today. Mrs. Marshel's first child, Leslie, 6, was born in an elevator of a Corpus Christi, Tex., hospital. Yvonne, 5, arrived in the lobby of a Norwalk, Calif., hospital. Timothy, 3, was born in an ambulance on the way to an Oakland, Calif., hospital. Robert, 2, narrowly beat the stork to Paradise Valley Hospital. "Next time," said Mrs. Marshel, "I'm going to wear track shoes." a "spokesman for the Chinese government" said the Soviet Union on June 20, 1959, "when there was not yet the slightest sign of a treaty on stopping nuclear tests, refused to provide China with a sample of an atomic bomb and technical data concerning its manufacture." The statement said this "unilaterally tore tip the agreement on new technology for national defense concluded between China and the Soviet Union on Oct. 15, 1957." "This was done as a presentation gift at the time the Soviet leader (Premier Khrushchev) went to the United States for talks with Eisenhower," the statement asserted. Raising a new angle in the Moscow-Peking feud, the Red Chinese spokesman charged that Soviet leaders "would not hesitate to obliterate the international position" of Communist East Germany "in order to curry favor with U. S. imperialism." Sailor Spy Ninh Hoa is about 200 miles north of Saigon, about 200 miles from Hue City where a novice Buddhist priest burned himself to death Tuesday. Campaign Grows Previously, two other Buddhist monks had committed suicide by fire in a growing campaign of protest by the Buddhists who have accused the regime of President Ngo Dinh Diem of religious and political discrimination. The government has denied the charges. The sources reporting the latest suicide said the nun was named Dieu Quang. They said she was in her early 20s, but others said she was older. The sources said her charred iy was taken away by government officials. Rope Off Pagoda . . .

At her doctor's suggestion, she may be able to stay that way for the next five months. It may be a month or two before she returns to Washington. Mrs. Kennedy settled quickly back into the summer routine in the big gray-shingled house, "Brambletyde," which the Kennedys havo rented on Squaw Island here until Sept. 15. Surrounded by her children, Caroline, 5%, and John Jr., 2%, and eight pet dogs, she can relax and try to forget the heartache of losing her third child, Patrick Bouvier Kennedy, who lived less than two days. Mrs. Kennedy came home from Otis Air Force Base Hospital Wednesday. Her obstetrician, Dr. John W.
