2A RACINE SUNDAY lULLETIN Sunday, July 25, 1965 Briton Urges Action to Halt Nuclear Spread (Continued from Page lA) of such countries as India if they renounce nuclear weapons. Lord Chalfont said the move is one of several possibilities that would be studied if a system of East-West guai-- antees for non-nuclear states cannot be attained. Complex Problem Chalfont spoke of tlie exceedingly complex problem of guaranteeing the security of countries that give up'the right to make or acquire nuclear weapons. The West Germans, for instance, demand prior action to set up a system of nuclear-sharing within the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. India and other Asian states, without surrendering their nonalignment want to be assured against the danger of Red Chinese atomic attack. All nuclear powers should give joint guarantees to the nonnuclear nations against nuclear threats or blackmail, Chalfont said. But if this proves impossible other assurances may have to be considered. He said the British are thinking in terms of a military partnership east of Suez be tween such powers as the U.S., Australia, New Zealand and any other nation in the region that may care to join. Some Americans, he added, favor Japan's entry. No British Position Chalfont said the British government has not yet taken a position on all tliis. But he felt London would be ready to transfer Britain's nuclear deterrent power to control of a Pacific force just as it has offered to do in the case of the projected Atlantic nuclear force within NATO. Chalfont will present a draft treaty at Geneva designed to stop the spread of nuclear weapons. His plan has American, Italian and Canadian backing. Chalfont gave these details of his plan: 1. The big five nuclear nations — the U.S., Britain, the Soviet Union, France and Red China—would promise never to transfer nuclear weapons to non-nuclear states. Non- nuclear states would promise never to make or acquire nuclear weapons. 2. Interested powers would seek agreement on a separate package of measures all designed to stop the spread of nuclear weapons. There would be an attempt to turn the existing test ban treaty into a complete ban by including underground nuclear blasts, now permitted. The big powers would be asked to quit further production of nuclear weapons and to destroy some of their delivery vehicles. A system of checking procedure might be evolved to guard against cheating by nuclear and nonnuclear powers alike. France and Red China will not be attending the Geneva talks, but Chalfont said they must be brought into negotiations. LBJ, U.S. Target of Riofs in Greece (Continued from Page lA) of the demonstrations or disorders over the past 10 days. There was also a marked decline in reference to Papan- dreou himself. The demonstration erupted as reports in Athens said Pap- andreou was suffering losses in his party with a number of deputies rejecting his bid to get back into office. This was reported by sources inside Papandreou's Center Union Party. They said Papandreou's own former deputy premier—Stephanos Step- hanopoulos, 65, could emerge as a compromise candidate acceptable to a majority of the 300-member Parliament. Not Among Others Stephanopoulos was not among the 20 Center Union deputies who fell away from Papandreou at the outset of the crisis 10 days ago and helped Premier George Athan- asiadis Novas form a government. But the party sources said he was a leader of a faction ready to bolt Papandreou if that would be a way to pull the country out of its crisis— gravest since the 1947-49 Communist civil war. Friday Papandreou claimed he still could count on 140 to 142 deputies of his party to stand by him when Athanasi- adis Novas goes to ParliamentI Thursday or Friday to seek the confidence vote his gov ernmen t constitutionally needs to survive. But today Papandreou's support had reportedly dwindled to less than a third of that. Expresses Doubt "I doubt that Papandreou will have 40 of his own deputies left," one Center Union Party member said. But deputies swinging away from Papandreou were reported reluctant to back Athan- asiadis Novas in a coalition with the rightist national radical union party because the new premier already has been identified with too much explosive controversy. Papandreou has denounced Athanasiadis Novas' Cabinet as a government of traitors. Demonstrators who have taken part in the bloody disorders that have rocked parts of Greece since King Constantine fired Papandreou July 15 and appointed Athanasiadis Novas have screamed against the new premier as a "murderer." Coalition Likely? With a shift of Center Union members, a compromise candidate could line up a majority, in coalition with the 99 members of the rightist National Radical Union. Party insiders were careful to point out however, that 6 Killed in Kentucky, Tennessee by Floods in the tricky cross currents of Greek politics, it was always possible coalition efforts would fail and that a majority of center union deputies would find little choice but to stay with Papandreou and search for a different solution. Papandreou has predicted that the new government would fail and that King Constantine would have to call him back. Trip Was Fufile — Toothless, Too BALTIMORE —iJP)— Mr. and Mrs. John Tana told police they were on their way 'to Norfolk, Va., recently when Mrs. Tana remembered she had left her false teeth at home. Tana turned around and drove back home. They discovered that thieves had entered through an unlocked rear door and stolen two watches, a ring —and Mrs. Tana's false teeth. Girl, 18, from Thailand Named 'Miss Universe' (Continued from Page lA) a railroad trestle that crosses a small stream that courses down the valley. It dammed up water behind it and later the trestle gave way." 13 Houses Destroyed Cooper said 13 houses, two store buildings and one church in Clinchmore were demolished, and 10 cars were swept away. Roads in the area were completely washed out, and an area about three miles long and 100 to 200 yards wide was leveled, he said. Flooding also struck New River, Briceville-: and 'Lake City in Anderson County and Strawberry Plains in Jefferson County. About 80 persons were evacuated from the Noetown com­ munity near Middlesboro as flood waters rushed down the mountainside. Several houses in Briceville and Lake City were flooded and some families were removed by rescue squad members in boats. Highways Out At Strawberry Plains, a vacant house owned by Bunt Hodge was swept 250 yards and carried two cars with it. Many highways and bridges in the three Tennessee counties were washed out. The water receeded rapidly but it left behind, besides the dead, property damages tun­ ning into the thousands of dollars. Cooper said the water deposited mud and silt up to six feet deep in some places. MIAMI BEACH — iJP) — An exotic raven-haired beauty nicknamed "Pook" for fat —Apasra Hongsakula of Thailand — was crowned Miss Universe for 1965 Saturday night. She nosed out the Finish entrant, Virpi Miettinen of Helsinki, a blue-eyed blonde model who is in position to assume the role of Miss Universe in case the winner cannot carry out her duties. Second runner-up was Miss USA, 20 - year - old Sue Ann Downey, of Columbus, Ohio. Sweden's blonde artist, Ingrid Norrman, was third runner-up, and Anna Schuit of Amsterdam, Holland, was fourth. Bangkok Student The 18-year-old black-eyed student from Bangkok was one of the most popular contestants with 8,000 people watching the pageant in Miami Beach Auditorium. Millions more watched on home television sets. "I never dreamed of this," said Apasra. She had been nervous and did not eat lunch before the final competition. Apasra is the first Miss Universe from Thailand and the first from her country to compete in this pageant in many years. Her parents. Col. and Mrs. Perm Hongsakula, were in the audience. Her father is an officer in the Thai Royal Air Force. "Apasra was named when she was three years old by her grandfather. The name 'Apasra' means fairy in English. At home her friends and her family call her 'Pook,'" said Mrs. Hongsakula. "Apasra was a fat baby. That's why we named her Pook." Ancient Name The name Hongsakula was given to her family a century and a half ago by King Rama IV as a sign of nobility. Apas­ ra was instructed by Thailand's Queen Sirikit on how to act, how to walk and how to wear her hair before she came to the pageant. "My queen will be very happy. I can't believe it all," said Apasra, a student at Penang Convent School in Malaysia. Immediately following her crowning and queen's walk down a long redcarpeted runway, other contestants ran to her side with kisses and congratulations. She's 5-foot-4, a shapely 35-22-35, and weighs 116 pounds — minus some she lost during rehearsals. The 15 semi-finalists paraded in swim suits, native costumes and evening gowns. The 57 girls in the pageant chose Miss Germany's peppy brunette, Ingrid Bethke, as "Miss Amity" for being the friendliest of the contestants. .The new M i s s Universe succeeds Corinna Tsopei of Greece.

Devalues Currency to avia ize BELGRADE, Yugoslavia — (JP)— Yugoslavia Saturday devalued its currency, announced introduction of a so called "hard dinar" and increased over-all prices in a major economic reform aimed at stabilizing its ailing econ omy. The local currency — the dinar—was devalued by 66.66 per cent. One U.S. dollar, worth 750 dinars up to now, will from Monday be worth 1,250 dinars. • Single Exchange Rate (Earlier this month Yugoslavia introduced a tourist ex change rate of 1,000 dinars for one dollar. Now there will be only one exchange rate of 1,250 dinars for one dollar). The government announced that from Jan. 1, 1966 it will issue new bank-notes, exchanging the present ones at the rate of one new-hard-din­ ar for 100 present dinars. Yugoslavia followed the example of France and Finland, where currency denominations were reduced 100 to 1. However, the old banknotes will be valid for a transitory period of four to five years. Boost Prices 24% In creating the hard dinar, which does not mean that it will be convertible, the government had in mind the psy­ chologic-political effect of the measure, a spokesman said. At the same time, the government announced a widespread increase in all prices starting Monday. Boris Krajger, vice premier, speaking to the parliament, said prices will go up 24 per cent. He said that in performing the currency devaluation Yugoslavia counted on its own forces and reserves, but added that agreements with the Soviet Union concluded recently will "considerably alleviate our present foreign currency situation." Seek New Credits He did not elaborate, but it was understood that the Soviet Union agreed to postpone Yugoslav debts and made other facilities available to Yugoslavia. Krajger said that Yugo slavia is consulting the governments of the United States, England, Italy and France in connection with the reform. These consultations are aimed at obtaining postponements of old debts and to obtain new credits. Krajger also said that the international monetary fund expressed readiness to aid the currency reform with credit arrangements. International Backing Coincidental with the announcement in Belgrade, the International Monetary Fund in Washington said it has approved a 12-month, $80-million standby arrangement with Yugoslavia "in support of a reform of the country's economic organization and foreign exchange system." The government of Yugoslavia, the Washington announcement said, has decided to liberalize imports of virtually all raw materials and spare parts, to eliminate ex­ port subsidies and tp put int4* effect tighter credit; policle'irf. and a decentralization of in< vestnient decisions. » These measures, the fundi said, "are expected to bring* incrieased competition among^ Yugoslavia's domestic indus-i- tries and exert downwatd; pressure on costs." The,fund said it previously has supported Yugoslavia-'?, "efforts to strengthen itS;; economy and develop its inr • ternational trade" to the* amount of authorizing with- Jdrawals by Yugoslavia totalr; ing $136.9 million of whic\il the equivalent of $60 million, currently is outstanding.
