Money Measures Success of Beatles Probe Ordered in Sea Crash SYDNEY. Australia (AP) — Prime Minister Sir Robert Menzies ordered a public investigation today in the sinking of Australia's first pushbutton destroyer, the Voyager, after a collision with the carrier Melbourne Monday night. The navy said an air and sea search is continuing off the Australian coast for 85 missing crew members of the 3,500-ton destroyer. There were fears many went down with their ship. Nine of the Voyager's 17 officers were among the missing. Calling the disaster shocking and unparalleled in Australia's peacetime naval history, Men- zies said a normal navy inquiry was inadequate. He said he would appoint a judge to investigate. The 20,000-ton Melbourne, the Australian navy's flagship, smashed into the-Voyager amid- ship, breaking the destroyer in half. The Voyager's bow section sank within minutes. The after section remained afloat for nearly three hours. The Voyager carried 334 officers and men. At least 230 were rescued. No casualties were reported aboard the carrier. Its bow badly battered, the Melbourne continued under her own power to Sydney. 120 miles north. The \ collision occurred 20 miles off i the coast, near the Jervis Bay naval base, shortly after 9 p.m. Both ships were equipped with radar-controlled steering, and their modern equipment was a source of pride to the Australian navy. The Voyager, launched in 1957 was the largest destroyer ever built in Australia. With her antiaircraft guns as well as steering controlled by radar, the electronically guided vessel could go into action with all hands below deck. Navy Minister Alexander J. Forbes said the accident oc- curred while the Melbourne's planes were carrying out touch- and- go exercises — swooping down on the deck, then taking off again without stopping. The Voyager was standing by about a half mile astern of the Melbourne to pick up any fliers whose planes crashe.l into the sea. The collision occurred as the Voyager cut across the Melbourne's bow when the carrier reversed course, Forbes said. The Voyager's skipper, Capt. Duncan Stevens, was reported to have been on the bridge at the time. He is among the missing. today...

Polite-Student Clash Greet Peace Mission ATHENS, Greece (AP) - A clash between police and thousands of Greek students trying to march on the U.S. and British embassies greeted Undersecretary of State George Ball on his Cyprus peace mission Monday. Demanding union of Cyprus with Greece, the student* demonstrated to underscore their opposition to the London-Washington plan for *n international peace force to police Cyprus. Ball waa. reported to have ru into an unexpected check in trying to win Greek approval of the plan. He delayed his departure tor Turkey, second stop on his mission. Informed sources said Greece approved the peace farct plan provided it first got approval of | the U.N. Security Council. The' Soviet Union, which opposes the j peace force, could veto it in the council. Government sources in Nicosia said the president of Cyprus, \ Archbishop Makarios, was cer- j tain to reject the plan, unless the proposed force was placed under Security Council control. Makarios was said to have conferred with advisers on the best way to bring the Cyprus issue before the Security Council. A British force has been try- lug to keep the peace between Turkish and Greek Cypriote, engaged in bUody clashes since last December. The United states and other Atlantic alliance nations would contribute soldiers to the peace force under the U.S.-British plan. To meet Greek Cypriot objections, London and Washington agreed to some sort of link between the United Nations and the peace force, but have refused to consider Security Council control of it. The clash between police and students erupted after Mayor Angelos Tsoukalas of Athens told a rally the Cyprus issue should be decided by residents of the island where Greek Cypriots outnumber Turkish Cypriots 4 to 1.

HOFFMAN WASHINGTON (AP) - The Defense Department said today "it is not believed in the national interest" to allow newsmen to .travel to the Guanar- amo naval base for on-the-spot reporting of the latest U.S.-Cuban crisis. "We will continue to review the matter daily," the Pentagon told The Associated Press. But it added in a statement "in view of the situation between the United States and Cuba, government • sponsored transport of newsmen to Guantanamo is not believed in the national interest at this particular time." Officials declined to elaborate on why the U.S government felt this way. The position appeared to clash with the presence of a British reporter at the base. The British reporter, Edwin Tetlow of the Daily Telegraph's New York office, has been filing very little copy out of Guantanamo, Navy sources said, and is scheduled to be flown out of the base on the next plane Friday. Although the Pentagon statement referred to government- sponsored travel, as a practical matter the ban is complete. There is no way to get to the base, on Cuba's eastern tip, except by military or other ernment transportation. abandoned each year in the Soviet Union. "Wind and water erosion are inflicting tremendous damage on agriculture," he told a committee meeting in the Kremlin. "We must take all measures for the restoration and preservation of the fertility of eroded soil. "In our opinion, it is necessary to adopt a special !•>•.• which would provide for the strict accountability of all departments, organizations, collective and state farms for preserving soil riches and for the sensible use of agricultural land." Not all the three million acres abandoned annually are dust bowls. "Huge areas are subjected to erosion, become overgrown with brush, are turned into swamps and are taken out of agricultural use," Volovchenko said. While he did not say so, wind damage is high in the arid virgin lands of Kazakhstan and Siberia that Premier Khrushchev ordered olowed up to boost grain production. There Is not enough rainfall in these areas to provide a crop cover against the winds. This was the case in the dust bowls of the U. S. Southwest and High Plains three decades ago.
