MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 23, 1963 Weather Stripe Hed A Little Warmer Tonight and Tuesday With High in Upper 70s PRICE SEVEN CENTS Senate Turns Down Rider On Ban Bill WASHINGTON (UPI) — The Senate today rejected Sen. Barry Goldwater's proposal to make the nuclear test ban treaty with Russia contingent on the removal of all Russian forces from Cuba. The roll call vote was 17 to 77 against Goldwater's r~;—~— ~ 1 proposal. Although the Division to Be Airlifted to W. Germany WASHINGTON (UPI)-An entire division of 16,000 U. S. armored troops will be airlifted to Germany next month in the largest such movement ever undertaken, Defense Secretary Robert S. Mc Namara announced today. The operation, designated "Exercise Biglift" will involve 116 combat and 240 transport planes, and the entire personnel of the 2nd Armored Division at Fort Hood, Tex, The troops will maneuver in Germany for a week under NATO command, and then return to the United States. The exercise is expected to cost about $10 million. Although it will constitute an im pressive show of military muscle, the exercise is regarded as a possible prelude to the withdrawal of some U.S. troops now regularly stationed in Europe. Sen. Richard B. Russell, D-Ga., chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, recently said that if troops could be airlifted to Europe with great speed, it might be possible to withdraw some of the six divisions now in Germany. McNamara arranged to release this announcement just before taking off for South Viet Nam to make a special study ordered by President Kennedy over the weekend of the military situation there. "The 'biglift* will provide a dramatic illustration of U.S. capabilities for rapid reenforcement of NATO forces," the Pentagon chief said. Boone Improves SANTA MONICA, Calif. (UPI) —Actor Richard Boone, hurt in an auto crash Friday, was expected to be released from St. John's Hospital today.

X-rays showed the 46-year-old actor suffered a cracked rib in addition to severe face and head lacerations and nose and chest injuries. MR. FARMER! DON'T MISS THE Farm Supply and Implement Dealers'" SPECIAL SECTION Which Will Appear on our CLASSIFIED PAGE STARTING TONIGHT proposa treaty itself needs a two thirds majority, only a ma jority was needed to defea the restriction. Defeat of Goldwater's reserva tions virtually assured rejection of other controversial restrictions still pending. The pact is sure o ratification Tuesday morning. Goldwater, front-runner for the GOP presidential nomination in public opinion polls, had chal lenged the Senate to "test the ene my" by postponing the effective ness of the treaty until all Soviet military forces were removed from Cuba. The top leaders of both parties opposed the restriction The reservation offered by Goldwater, a possible 1964 Republican presidential nominee, was regarded as the biggest hurdle for the treaty banning nuclear testing except underground. The pact itself, now signed by 100 nations, is scheduled for £ Senate vote at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday Overwhelming approval appears to be assured. Goldwater told his colleagues that if they must vote for the treaty, then, "in your nation's name and in the name of the trust your nation has placed upon you, demand at least this single honorable, appropriate and meaningful price." Goldwater's reservation to the resolution of ratification was the first called up for action as the Senate neared the end of two weeks of debate on the treaty to ban all but underground nuclear testing. The Senate came to the ques tion of reservations quickly when Sen. Thomas J. Dodd, D-Conn., dropped his own fight for five "understandings." Dodd urged ratification of the pact, saying he believes "the good in it outweighs the bad.' He said he would offer later a separate resolution calling upon the Senate Preparedness subcom mittee to make periodic reports to the Senate on the status of the U. S. underground nuclear testing program, the status of nuclear laboratories, "the observance of the treaty," and its impact on national security. Jail Escapee Dies in Battle With Policemen ST.

Some expressed bitterness some charity. There were calls for a "non violent uprising" and a "massive nationwide campaign of civil dis obedience" to protest what one speaker called "the last crime against the spirit of brotherhood —the senseless slaughter of the children." The largest demonstrations were held in New York City and Washington. End Attempt In Shreveport, La., police riot squads and mounted sheriff's deputies broke up an attempt by 1,000 Negroes to hold a memoria parade. That was followed by a brief clash between Negroes and police outside a church. A group of prominent Ameri cans, headed by Gov. Edmund G Brown of California and Charles Taft of Cincinnati, announced for mation of "America's Conscience Fund" to rebuild the bombed 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham. Four of the Negro children died in that bombing a week ago Sua day. Two Negro boys were shot to death in separate incidents that day. Funeral services for the boys were held Sunday.

Boy Stranded On Ledge Is Rescued AUGUSTA, Mont. (AP)—A 10- year-old boy stranded on a narrow ledge of a 1,000-foot cliff in the Sun River Canyon was car ried to safety early today on a 150-foot wooden ladder built during the night. The boy, Bruce Krummcl of Great Falls, was reported in good shape. Mrs. Glenn Roberts of the Sun Canyon Lodge, about a half mile from the base of the cliff on which Bruce was stranded Sunday morning, said the boy was carried down by A. R. Bender, an Augusta carpenter who directed building of the ladder. She said persons at the base of the cliff reported Bruce was 'chattering like a magpie." He apparently did not suffer from the cold nor rain which fell earlier during the night.

S. Position On Buddhists Angers Diem UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (AP) —A spokesman for ['resident Ngo Dinh Dicm's regime said today the United States cut off its nose lo spite its face when it supported U.N. General Assembly debate on his government's treatment of Buddhists. Prof. Buu Hoi, head of a special Vietnamese mission to the Ill-nation assembly, said the discussion would enable Communist delegations to demand that the United States withdraw troops from South Vict. Nam. North Vict Nam already has renewed that demand. "We were sure right from the start," Buu Hoi said in an interview, "that during the debate several countries from the Soviet bloc would raise the problem which has nothing to do with the Buddhist affair—which is the influence of the United States ir. that part of tlie world. "That's why we deplored that the U.S. government voted in favor of the inclusion of that item in the agenda." Buu Hoi said he thought it did so to put pressure on Diem. He remarked that there was "more to it than just the Buddhist affair" but would not explain his remark. Other Countries Back Britisher JAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) — The British-Indonesian dispute flared again today over the guarding of Britain's ruined embassy, burned by mobs in a wave of violence that almost caused a diplomatic break. A diplomatic crisis was averted when Gov. Sumarno Sosroatmocljo of Jakarta agreed through a police representative to a joint British sue serious enough to ask support from other embassies.

The mobs that burned the embassy Wednesday were protesting the creation of the British-protected Federation of Malaysia, embracing Malaya, Singapore, Sarawak and Sabah (North Borneo), all former British territories. To avoid a diplomatic break, Indonesia promised that British lives and properties would be protected, but a number of British enterprises have been taken over by the government, at least temporarily. Indonesian officials say they acted to keep workers from seizing them. Communist Guerrillas Are Active in South Viet Nam Military Planes Search Atlantic For Lost Airship DOVER, Del.
