THE RACINE JOURNAL-TIMES VOL. 35, No. 30 RACINE, WIS./ SUNDAY, JULY 25, 1965 62 PAGES—5 SECTIONS—20 CENTS Briton Urges Action to Halt Nuclear Spread : LONDON —m— Britain's minister for disarmament called Saturday for urgent international action to stop the rise of at least five new nuclear powers "in the next few years." Lord Chalfont warned, in an exclusive interview, that the unchecked spread of atomic power would bring "appalling dangers for all mankind." . The five powers were not named by Chalfont, who flies to Geneva to speak for Britain at the 17-nation disarmament conference reopening Tuesday. But they probably were among about a dozen nations he said recently had atomic capability. List Countries These are India, Israel, Pakistan, West Germany, Canada, Sweden, the United Arab Republic, Brazil, Switzerland, Italy, Japan and Indonesia. In this connection, President Su karno of Indonesia has said iiis nation will produce an atomic bomb shortly. 'The great powers have adopted immensly complicated safety devices to ensure that the power to use nuclear weapons does not fall into the hands of individuals who might be tempted by madness or mistaken political convictions to make use of that power," Lord Chalfont said. This was a reference to the costly and complex system that guards against unauthorized use of nuclear weapons. Civil War Use? "If a small and perhaps unstable country possessed^, nuclear weapons it might be much easier for individuals to seize control and make use of them," Chalfont added. "The possibility of nuclear weapons being used in a civil war does not bear thinking about." / The minister also said some Western powers consider a Pacific nuclear force may be needed to insure the security '•• (Turn to Page 2A, Col. 1) Will Issue Stamp Honoring Adiai WASHINGTON — (m — The White House disclosed Saturday a special 5-cent memorial stamp honoring Adlai Stevenson will be issued Oct. 23.

LB J, U.S. Target of Riots in Greece Harriman Cites 'No Accord' in Russian hh ROME — m — President Johnson's roving ambassador, W. Averell Harriman, arrived Saturday to tell officials in Rome about his talks in Moscow. He termed them an exchange of views without an accord. He flew in after a 90-minute meeting with West German Chancellor Ludwig Erhard in Munich, where he said the United States would not make a deal with the Soviet Union on nuclear weapons or Viet Nam "without consulting western Europe." 80-Minute Meeting In Rome, Harriman conferred for an hour and 20 minutes with Foreign Minister Amintore Fanfani, then went to a dinner with Pres.

An agreement to stop the spread of nuclear weapons will be sought in disarmament negotiations resuming Tuesday in a 17-nation committee in Geneva. Reason for Visit In Rome, Harriman told reporters he had come to "inform the Italian government of the informal discussions' he conducted with Soviet leaders. He said Johnson wanted the allies informed "even though they were not official contacts." "In my talks in Moscow," he said, "nothing in the nature of an agreement was made. It was rather an exchange of information." He said he later would go to Yugoslavia to "talk to President Tito, whom I have known for many years." Harriman added, "we are both on vacation." —AP Wlrephoto JAPANESE SOCIALISTS CELEBRATE -- Kohzo Sasaki, Japanese Socialist leader, painted black eyes on a Dharma doll symbolizing an election victory as party members celebrated Saturday at Socialist Party headquarters in Tokyo.

Johnson Summons^Mc^amam for Further Session on Viet Nam WASHINGTON — (JP) President Johnson called Sec. of Defense Robert S. McNamara to the president's Camp David retreat Saturday as the administration's Viet Nam strategy review pointed toward a sizable boost in the U.S. military effort. Presss Sec. Bill D. Moyers vigorously disputed any suggestion that Johnson's daily sessions with top advisers since McNamara's return from a Viet Nam survey are merely cover-ups for presidential decisions already made. "That is absolutely and categorically untrue," the White House spokesman declared. "No Decisions Made" "I know the president feels, as do his advisers, that for the government to make decisions of the nature that are Asserts JFK Planned to Replace Rusk in '64 NEW YORK Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr., a former advisor to President Kennedy, says Kennedy had decided in 1963 to oust Dean Rusk as secretary of state after the 1964 election. Schlesinger makes the statement in an article in a current national magazine, one of a series of excerpts from his forthcoming book about Kennedy. The State Department had no comment. President Johnson's press secretary. Bill D. Moyers, said Johnson still strongly holds the opinion of Rusk he expressed in a July 13 news conference: that Rusk ranks first in his cabinet and "first with me." Bob Kennedy 's Comment Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, D-N.Y., brother of the late president, said Rusk "has serired the nation with integrity, ability and energy" and that President Kennedy "had entire confidence in the integrity and purpose of Secretary Rusk." Schlesinger does not say that President Kennedy had chosen a successor to Rusk. "He always had the dream that someone like Robert McNamara might some day take command and make the department a vigorous partner in the enterprise of foreign relations," Schlesinger says. Schlesinger writes that Kennedy found the State Department "formless and impenetrable." Remark to Jackie "He would come back to 9 Perish in Kentucky in Two-Car Collison HARLAN, Ky. —(^t— Nine persons, including eight members of one family, were killed Saturday in a two-car head-on collision on a highway at Smith in eastern Kentucky.

Names of the other victims, ages and home towns were not immediately available. the mansion at night and remark to Jacqueline, 'damn it (McGeorge) Bundy and I get more done in one day at the White House than they do in six months in the State Department,' "' Schlesinger says.* Schlesinger writes that Rusk was "a superb technician" and "the perfect No. 2 man." "B u t the inscrutabilityj which made him a good aide and a gifted negotiator made him also a baffling leader. Since his subordinates did not know what he thought, they could not do what he wanted. "In consequence, he failed to imbue the department with positive direction and purpose. He had authority but not command," Schlesinger says. The former White House aide says Rusk barely seemed to have strong views at White louse conferences and "would sit calmly by, with his Bud dhalike face and his half-smile, often leaving it to Bundy or to the president himself to assert the diplomatic interest." going on, and then to erect a facade . . . would not only be capriciousness of the worst kind but hypocrisy, and would play havoc with the confidence of the people in the government. "No decisions have been made. When they are made the president will make them. When they are made the people will be informed. "But it is irresponsible and reckless as well as grossly untrue for anyone in or outside the government to imply that any decisions were made before Secretary McNamara went to Saigon." Reported Deterioration Whether or not specific decisions have been made, the signs continued to point to an administration move soon — probably this week — to beef up the Viet Nam war effort. McNamara reported after his five-day tour that the situation had deteriorated and more men are needed to fight the Red Viet Gong. Johnson first talked with McNamara by telephone about various items including, Moy ers said, "the use and adequacy of helicopters for requirements in South Viet Nam." Earlier studies had been ordered on such potentials as U.S. reserve call-ups and bigger draft calls. Combines Work, Rest Johnson, combining a considerable work load with his Avoid Tourists? How About Fair? DES MOINES, Iowa —iJ?) — A billboard company has some tongue-in-cheek advice on how to avoid tourists while traveling this summer. Apparently noting lagging attendance at the World's Fair in New York, the company has erected a big sign in downtown Des Moines that says: "Get away from the crowd—visit the New York World's Fair." The sign was erected by the Stoner System of Des Moines in what it describes as a "public service for a worthy^ c|use." weekend recreation at the Camp David, Catoctin Mountain hideaway, then told his defense secretary to fly up from Washington to join him for dinner. Moyers described the McNamara visit as "rest and recreation, and some work." T\\e presidential national security affairs assistant, McGeorge Bundy, stood by for possible call to Camp David too. Sec. of State Dean Rusk was in California speech making and did not figure in the White House announcements concerning Viet Nam. Pro-Red Unit Sparks March of 5,000 Youths SALONIKA, Greece — —A new mass demonstration organized by pro-Communists erupted in Greece Saturday night amid shouts against the United States, President Johnson and the Greek royal family. More than , 5,000 youths, called out by the Salonika Students Union and the pro- Communist Lambrakis Youth Movement, marched through the streets of this northern city passing the U. S. consulate. They screamed "Down with Marionettes of Johnson, the murderer," "Pull out of NATO" and "Down with the Hitlerina." This last was an open slur, on King Constantine's mother. Queen Mother Frederika, who was born in Germany and as a child was a member of the Hitler Youth Movement. Police Out in Force Heavy police units were out in force. Salonika was torn by Btreet fighting fitter King George Papandreou July 15 in conflict over control of the armed forces.

The man hunted in a citywide search since the shooting Friday night had been identified by Vietnamese police as Robert Kimball, a native of Utah. Slain Friday night at his Saigon home in what was believed to be a crime of passion were Jack E. Ryan, chief of the U.S. Aid Mission's Public Safety Division, and a Vietnamese woman, Mrs. Nguyen Thi Hai. On Saturday police launched a search for Kimball, distributing pictures of him and questioning his acquaintances. He worked in the same U.S. operations missions division with Ryan. While there was no official announcement immediately, reliable informants said Kimball was arrested at dawn at his home near downtown Saigon. They said Vietnamese police who had been waiting at the house took him by surprise and there was no resistance. Reconstructing the fatal shootings, police said that Ryan was shot as he stepped from his car in front of his house about 11 p.m. Friday. It was not definitely determined whether Mrs. Hai, also an employe of the operations mission in Ryan's division, was in the car with Ryan when' he arrived or whether she was waiting at his home. Ryan, a former FBI agent, had served for a number of years in Southeast Asia. He returned only last week from home leave. Police sources had said from the beginning of the investigation that they believed the motive for the shooting was personal. LAND GIVEAWAY MANILLA — m — Pres.
