CORNELL WASHINGTON (API-President Kennedy says the United States is pouring billions of dollars and a tremendous effort into overtaking Russia in space—"and I think by the end of the decade we will." This was a sort of hopeful look at long-l e r m prospects in response to a news conference question Wednesday about Russia's orbiting of twin cosmonauts. It was tempered by mention an even dozen times that this country now is behind, second, or late or that the Soviets have a lead.

They are in addition to 16 vessels said to have docked at Cuban ports late last month with an estimated 3,000 to 5,000 Communist bloc technicians plus large quantities of goods including weapons.

Kennedy spoke of former Secretary of the Treasury George M. Humphrey as a responsible official of the company. Humphrey has contended the inquiry is an attempt to slap at Eisenhower through himself. James Haygood, business agent for the union—Local 558 of the AFL-CIO International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers—declined comment. Allgood made permanent an earlier temporary restraining order prohibiting picketing and ordering the union to "instruct its members to return to work." He agreed with a National Labor Relations Board attorney, Jules Serot, that telling members they were "free to return to work" was not sufficient. A spokesman at the Marshall Space Flight Center said about 70 per cent of the construction workers were back on the job Wednesday. Moscow's abolition of the Sovie commandant's office would b followed by efforts to limit West ern movements in the Communis part of this divided city. Although East German guards made no attempt to interfere with the American vehicles, U.S. authorities said it was still too early to conclude that harassing measures were not in the offing. One U.S. Army vehicle crossed from West Berlin into the Communist sector just before midnight and returned without difficulty through Checkpoint Charlie, entry point through the Berlin Wall for military personnel. Two more U.S. Army cars followed without meeting any delays. The Russians announced Wednesday they were doing away with the office of city commandant and transferring his duties "temporarily" to Gen. Ivan Yaku- bovsky, the Soviet commander for East Germany, who has headquarters at Potsdam, just west of Berlin. Western officials viewed the action as a Communist effort to cut one more "slice of salami" from Western occupation rights in the campaign to force the allies out of the city. Communist propaganda organs were expected to argue that the Soviets no longer needed a military authority in Berlin and neither did the Allies. president of tfce Allen Parish Fair Association. He had served as its first president when it was organized in the late 30's. He was also an honorary member of the Allen Cattlemen's association. Survivors include his wife, Mrs. Louisa L.

From noon Wednesday to noon Thursday, 29 ballots had been cast bringing the total to 117. 'or five days on Aug. 4. Police noted that period eoincided with De Gaulle's trip to Paris from his country home. He gave a luncheon Aug. 8 at Elysee Palace for visiting Dwight D. Eisenhower. De Gaulle had come to the capital Wednesday for a Cabinet meeting to draft stronger measures to stem a wave of terrorism blamed on right-wing extremists from Algeria. DeGaulle's car was hit by at least 10 bullets in a heavy cross' fire as it sped along a road to the Villacoublay airport. One of the bullets missed him by only two inches. Others broke the rear window and pierced side windows. The president was showered with glass but unhurt. ; The gunmen—believed number- iing at least 10—fired about 150 j bullets at the motorcade and hit jsome of the other cars.

Mrs. Foster, also 23, of Medford. Ore., was treated for shock at Carson-Tahoe Hospital in Carson City, Nev. Lester Morford III, 18, of Santa Rosa, Calif., is in jail charged with assault with intent to kill. Larry Fister, Nevada highway patrolman, chased him down and caplured him in the Foster car at Silver Springs, east of Reno, shortly after Mrs. Foster leaped from the vehicle in Carson Cily and reported the attack. Foster's bride, Patricia, told officers a young man broke into their room and kidnaped them at gun point in their auto. They drove to Truckee, Calif., then to Lake Tahoe, then headed east. She said the gunman shot her husband and dumped him from the car, assaulted her twice and drove to Carson City, where she hurt. A passing motorist was wounded in the hand. Interior Minister Roger Frey said puncture-proof tires on the president's car and on the police car which followed him were a saving factor.

Navy experts consider il a major tactical demonstration that antisubmarine warfare in the hostile and weird environment of the ice-capped Arc- | tic Ocean seems feasible in the event of hostililies. Another phase of submarine warfare, rocket-firing by submersibles, creates urgent requirement for counter-measures. Russia is beginning to build and send to sea atomic submarines. One of the logical launching points for any Soviet submarine rocket attack on the United States and Canada would be the Arctic Ocean. The U.S. Navy maintains a barrier patrol across one route for Russian submarines into the Atlantic. That barrier extends eastward from Greenland to Iceland and the Faroe Islands. But the Arctic Ocean, on which Russia borders, is wide open.
