May Take Downed Plane Matter to United Nations By STANLEV JOHNSON MOSCOW (AP)—Soviet Premier Nlkita Khrushchev warned today that resumption of American U2 spy flights over the Soviet Union would "heat the existing tension to boiling point and bring matters to the outbreak of war." The Soviet Premier gave this warning at a Kremlin news conference in answer to a question about the possibility of renewal of U2 flights. He did not elaborate. , Earlier, in an opening statement, Khrushchev had charged the flight of the RB47 reconnaissance plane shot down July 1 by a Soviet fighter demonstrated that U.S. policy isaimed at "provoking a serious military conflict." He also declared that this "new act of perfidy" had demonstrated that President Eisenhower's assurance in Paiis that the U2 flights over Soviet territory had been discontinued was "not worth a bad penny." Khrushchev claimed the two surviving crewmen of the American plane—1st Lt. John R. McCone, 38, of Tonganoxie, Kan., and 1st Lt. Freeman B. Olmstead, 24, of Elmira, N.Y.—had admitted their plane "was to have flown along ! the northern frontiers of the Sov- Kennedy Impregnable; Dems Face Battle on Civil Rights jiet Union on an espionage mis- j sion." ' United Nations RB47 disappeared on July 1 said it was surveying electromagnetic fields in arctic waters to gain Information for unproved navigational maps. After the Soviet spy charge was made Monday, President Eisenhower ordered U.S. officials to make no comment until he could study a full report from the State and Defense Departments on Moscow's charges. Khrushchev said the "provocative flight of the RB47 showed that President Eisenhower's assurance at the abortive Paris summit conference that American.spy flights over the Soviet Union had been discontinued "are not worth a penny." Khrushchev said that since the plane was stopped as it began its intrusion over Soviet territory, "tile Soviet government limited itself to destroying the aircraft." "The surviving members of the crew will be brought to court in accordance with Soviet laws," he continued. "Let the provocateurs and the executors of their ill will not count on such actions unpunished." i Acts of Aggretjtdou Khrushchev said he thought thej The incidenti Khrushchev as- Soviet Union would take the mat- j serted "testified mat the U.S. aiKl other alternates for the con-1 holding up final transfer, necting link , : Counter Query tiic city as to its own plans in the 'matter, suggesting the city The resolution will be report- : hi discussion, it was sought to ; should act on its own initiative. ed to the Council for final dispo-jjeam what the Division of High-1 Councilman Maynard Lister op- 'ways, wants the city to do in ex- sition Wednesday night District Engineer Riefler toldSpedition of the bridge improve- the Council members there are j ment.

District Engineer Riefler on taking a choir with the council members was given an expression of appreciation tor his presence by Mayor pro tern Jerome Springman. In response, Riefler said he was happy to be present, adding "but whether I can clarify all that is in your minds remains to be seen." Council Concerned Mr. Riefler was told by Councilman Wiseman that the council had been unable to get direct information as to the status of the bridge approach plans and was particularly concerned because of an assurance of the highway department a year ago last January that plans for the approaches would be complete within 18 months after the bridge tolls receivership case was ended — a time now expired. The district engineer uuid no designs for approaches have yet been made. Wiseman also pointed out that Council members have been told that the state cannot make bridge improvements until the structure is few of alencumber- ances. He inquired bow the state could make expenditures tor repairs on the bridge but not for approaches. This question Mr. Riefler said was one he "cannot answer." CouwUnwi Mwynjird Liwer asked if the lack of a transfer of the bridge to the State of Illinois were due to Hens on toe he would find the Council coop- Asked whether Johnson would announce then that he was withdraw- i ing from the race, the aide replied "No, definitely not."

With regard to selection of a connecting route between the north belt and the river park complex, Riefler suggested that the Council seemed to be asking the state to take a hand in solving a local problem in the city. The resolution seemed ,to Indicate, he said, there was a degree of local controversy as to a connecting route and that tlie Council was in a quandary. Riefler cited that after the city took under consideration the Lochner plan contemplating ultimate use of the Langdon route to take congestion from the downtown area. Alton's planning engineers recommended the use of Henry street which the state had originally recommended, but which the Council disapproved. Councilman Jerome Springman replied hut it was not a local problem when glutted traffic on the bridge. and its connection With state routes was concerned. Riefkr denied there bad been any recommendation communication from the highway-department that the city must recommend a connecting route as a means of expediting the construction of the bridge approaches.

Best Ticket Gov. David L. Lawrence of Pennsylvania, who led a majority of his state's 81 votes to Kennedy, thought a Kennedy-Symington ticket would be the best the party could offer.

He said thai "thanks to Tom Butler (who helped arrange meetings with industry), we saved the taxpayers a lot of money in avoiding protracted litigation." In answer to a declaration government has not abandoned the policy of committing acts of aggression against the Soviet Union."

Other Jtaeft Included These were not only attorneys' and engineering fees, but expenses of clerical, secretarial, and other costs. The stipulation was still in process of preparation today. It would represent an agreement oi 13 industries in the Levee District to recommend court action on their objections to administrative fees involved.
