Sen. 'Henry M. Jackson, D- Wash., who. .has been dubious about' UK;''-'treaty, indicated that his decision would bo Influenced by what he finds out about the underground program. Jackson is chairman of the Semite-House Atomic-' Energy subcommittee dealing' with weapons., "I would .say.'that, the '-assurances that can be given by the administration of a definite underground lost program that would be considered adequate by our professional experts would help materially in reaching a decision on the trtmty," he said. Senate Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield of Montana said in a separate interview lie believes underground tests will provide "virtually all the progress we need" in developing weapons. Senate Republican Leader Everett M. Dirksen of Illinois, who remains uncommitted on the treaty, said among the many things senators will want to learn from military leaders is "whether underground tests will meet our national security needs." fWuit and See' Kennedy said he doesn't see anything wrong in senators' adopting a wait and see attitude toward the treaty, as many Republicans and some Democrats have. But he added: "Sooner or later, .however, if you wait long enough and you see long enough you have to do something and you have to vote 'yes' or 'no.' "My judgment is when the testimony is all in that: this treaty will be ratified.:! think it would be a great mistake not to." Mansfield 'said he hopes the treaty to, be signed Monday in Moscow can be brought before the Senate before Labor Day. He said he thinks various committees ought to complete their hearings in a couple of weeks, and he expects a week's debate on tlie floor. Lutherans Seek Unity OfFaiths By DICK SODERLUND HELSINKI, Finland,(AP)—The Lutheran World Federation was , told today 'it' cannot "casually dismiss the ' theological teaching of the Roman Catholic Church as patently false, unbibllcal and un- evangelical." A study paper prepared for discussion at the gathering of Lutherans 'from all over the world also said: .' "Neither;can we deny the many and diverse manifestations of earnest piety, charity and concern /for truth in, the Roman Catholic Church." For the first tlrne since the 16th century Reformation, the Vatican has sent official observers to a Lutheran congress. They were present to hqar the paper presented. It was part of a new Lutheran program Jooking toward better understanding with non-Lutheran churches—especially the Roman Catholic. This assembly is expected to set up a new foundation for the purpose of studying the Roman Catholic}', jaj\d. other non-Lytheran churches and carrying on what is called an ; ecumenical 'dialogue wJth them.

(AP foot vessel, uncovered during a road improvement Wirephoto) Kennedy Conference Highlights WASHINGTON (AP)-Here, in rief, 'are President Kennedy's 'lews on major subjects that ame up Thursday at his news onference: NUCLEAR TREATY-The Senate, after careful consideration, vlll vote to ratify the'agreement o ban nuclear tes(,s in the atmosphere, outer space and under water. "It would be a great mis- ake not to." UNDERGROUND TESTS — The United States intends/to con- inue testing nuclear weapons Underground. (Such tests would, not be banned by the treaty). CIVIL RIGHTS - Indications hat his policies on civil rights are costing him heavily in poli- ical prestige and popularity are wobably right,' However, "this Is a national crisis of great propor tions. My judgment is that both political parties finally will come to the same conclusion, anr that is that every effort should be made to protect the rights of all our citizens, and advance their rights to,equality of opportunity." DEMONSTRATIONS — Because the civil rights demonstrations have subsided does not mean that "those of us who are in a position of responsibility should go 'to sleep and forget the problem, because that is no solution." Still, it may be a good thing that the demonstrations are subsiding, "particularly in their extreme form." GERMANY—If the Communist East German government signed the nuclear agreement it would not constitute U.S. recognition of the regime, much as Red China's signing of a multilateral treaty 'on.Laos did not mean-the United States recognized the Chinese government. FAR EAST—Chinese troop concentrations north of India's frontier and broadcasts out of Peking indicate "the potentiality is there for a turn for the worse" in the Far .East. The United States hopes there will not be a flare- up which would bring a direct conflict "and we cannot say as of yet there have been any actions which would indicate that in a final way that, hope would be denied at this time." CHINA — The growing population of Communist China, tlie fact that it is surrounded by weaker countries, organization of its government along Stalinist lines and Peking's advocacy of war to advance the Communist cause pose "a menacing situation." The possibility that China might develop into a full-fledged nuclear power in a decade means the United States niay face "potentially a more dangerous situation than any we faced since the end of the second war." 1 NONAGGRESSION PACT — If everyone unilaterally pledges non- aggression as has French President Charles de'Gauile, "then you have a nonaggression pact in a sense." However, the United States is going to follow the procedure of consulting with its allies on the advisability of an East- West agreement "and then go back to the Soviet Union .and see what the situation looks like." •SUMMIT—"I don't really see at Brown, Nixon Stay In Same Paris Hotel PARIS (AP)—Gov. Edmund G. (Pal) Brown of California and former Vice President Richard M. Nixon, were guests at the same hotel. Brown, a Democrat, defeated Nixon for the governorship last year.

Kins Peter e Citation Integrationists Picket Peoria Water Plant PEORIA, JH. (API - Negro demonstrators have picketed Peoria's water works, contending the privately owned utility has failed to include Negroes among its SB employes. More than two dozen demonstrators staged a sit-in Thursday at the utility's downtown business office. They were led by John Gwynn, president of the Peoria NAACP branch. J. B.
