I*' WASHINGTON (UPI) -Communist China's third—and most powerful—nuclear test blast has triggered a verbal exchange between Peking and Washington over who is responsible for the spiraling arms race. The exchange came amid reports that Monday's explosion had a yield of about 130 kilotons (equal to 130,000 tons of TNT) more than six t i m e s U»e size of the, original U.S. estimate and of China's' two previous tests. The blast may prove to be even bigger as additional evidence is gathered, officials said. The State Department acknowledged Wednesday that the United States had received and rejected a Chinese proposal that the two countries pledge that neither would be the first to use nuclear weapons against the other. No Guarantees A spokesman said the Peking offer was not a constructive step toward disarmament because there would be no wav of LBJ's Trade Plan For Red Nations Killed By Solon WASHINGTON (UPI) -Chair man Wilbur Mills of the House Ways Means Committe today killed all hopes of the Johnson administration to liber alize trade with Russia and Japan Ponders Fallout TOKYO (UPI) -Prime Minis ter Eisaku Sato ordered a cabinet meeting today to determine what measures are needed to counter serious radioactive fallout from Com munist China's' biggest and dirtiest nuclear explosion. Already the government has ordered ships at sea to wash their decks daily and cautioned lighthouse keepers against drinking rainwater. Many Japanese housewives are washing fresh fruit and vegetables as a precaution against radiation poisoning and golfers and other persons engaged in outdoor activities carry umbrellas to protect against the possibility of radioactive rain. The science and technology agency told Sato"s cabinet today there has been a significantly greater number of "giant" radioactive particles detected from Monday "s explosion that from any other atom test recorded in Japan, including the Soviet and U.S. H-bomb tests of 1961 and 1962. The agency said it was too early to tell whether precautionary measures would be needed similar to those adopted in 1961 when Russia exploded its 100 metagon hydrogen bomb. Such measures could include the filtration of rainwater used for drinking. Communist Eastern Europe this year. The powerful Arkansas Democrat told newsmen that he would not introduce the liberalizing legislation requested by the administration and would not hold hearings on th« proposal this year. "I want my position clear," Mills said. "I'm not for it. He later added that he was not for it "at this time." Administration officials were not kidding themselves about lie congressional reception awaiting the legislation. They tnew it would be tough. With the United States waging a very hot war in Viet \am, few if any congressional voices will be raised to support a measure aimed at befriending countries that, at one time or another, have helped Communist North Viet Nam. Wednesday U.S. Air Force bombers and Coast Guard vessels blasted a Communist gun-running freighter as it tried ;o slip into Vietnamese waters. Some of the weapons on board were of Russian manufacture. The Soviet Union also has et fighters and other military )rovided antiaircraft missiles, md economic aid to the Hanoi •egime. Romania, Poland, Hun- jary, Czechoslovakia and Bulgaria all have provided economic assistance. Some Eastern European arms have shown up in Viet Nam. All the regimes nvolved have given political upport to the North Vietnamese. guaranteeing that either side would adhere to such a pledge. Peking's offer, officials said, was made more than a year ago at one of the periodic Warsaw meetings between the Chinese and American ambassadors to Poland. It represented one portion of a catchall Peking proposal, made when Chinese exploded their nuclear device In October, 1964. Another element in the Peking package was a proposal for a summit conference of atomic powers to outlaw nuclear weapons, forswear their future use and destroy stockpiles. The pledge proposal and its the I rejection came to light in a first i statement Tuesday by Chinese Communist Premier Chmi fin* lai. He said his country had miclaf weapons aganst the other, but had been turned down. Claim Defensive Measures This, according to Chou, had forced China to continue Us drive to become a real nuclear power. u Though the Chinese anfldn«s*i went was an obvtoiis ploy to escape some of the ottproblum of exploding a noctear device, U appeared to have placed the United States somewhat on thi propaganda defensive.

(UPI) -' About 200 heavily armed men slogged in rain over a rugged stretch of the Tuscarora Mountains today in a search for a 17-year-old girl and her kidnaper, believed to be a long- sought sniper.
