U.S. Hopeful For 2nd Step In 6 A' Bans By JOHN M. HIGHTOWER WASHINGTON (AP) — With the test-ban treaty safely through the Senate, administration leaders were reported cautiously hopeful today that Soviet Premier Khrushchev will be ready soon to negotiate on a "second step" to reduce dangers of nuclear war. The same pressures believed to have influenced Khrushchev's decision to Sign the limited ban on nuclear weapons testing are still present. Thus U. S. experts think Khrushchev may see further need to improve his relations with the Western powers. These pressures include the bitter and growing differences between the Soviet Union and Red China and the apparently severe crop failure in the Soviet Union this year which makes Khrushchev partially dependent on Western sources for wheat and other food grains. Furthermore, U. S. officials believe that after the Cuban missiles showdown last October Khrushchev decided the danger of nuclear war had been so great that steps toward minimizing future risks of worldwide destruction were necessery. Possible next steps include proposals which Khrushchev himself has made for an East-West non- aggression pact and for the stationing of observers on both sides of the Iron Curtain to guard against surprise attack. Of the two propositions, U. S. authorities think agreement on the observer plan is more likely because the nonaggression proposal has been tied by the Western powers to counterproposals for greater security for West Berlin. The test-ban treaty cleared the Senate Tuesday by an 80-19 vote. It will prohibit all but underground testing. President Kennedy called the pact "a single but substantial step in the direction of peace." Secretary of State Dean Rusk has characterized it as a "first step" with the implication there must be other steps if Soviet- Western relations are to continue to improve. So far, Khrushchev has shown no pressing interest in proceeding urgently with further negotiations. Several reasons have been advanced for this in official Washington. Khrushchev may have wanted to be sure the treaty would win Senate ratification before proceeding with further measures. He may also have decided that urging consideration of other issues during the Senate debate might complicate matters. EXPRESSION'S ORIGIN The expression "to mind one's P's and Q's" originated in old English taverns, where a record was kept of the liquor purchases of the guests by tallying the pints and quarts as they were imbibed.

In forwarding the report Tuesday, Vance emphasized these conditions, which include self-liquidating and adequate public terminals and transfer facilities, and water and air pollution control for dunes park areas. Vance wrote: Want More Details "I concur in the recommendations of the Chief of Army Engineers and the Bureau of the Budget on the need for further detailed study to support clearly the economic justification of the proj- est.

It measures that distance on the Illinois Central Railroad tracks, starting at milepost J- 165. The mile was shortened a few years ago when the railroad straightened and relocated some of the track. Since the mileposts are numbered consecutively between here and Paducah, they had to be relocated to conform to the new route, or have the squeeze put on. The railroad decided to squeeze.

Concerning the dunes, Staats said the Department of the Interior has recently reviewed the remaining dunes areas to determine those feasible for use in a lakeshore park.
