South Viet Nam Faces Crisis

Whest Polic
LONDON (-- - T h e United
SStates and Britain yesterday com-
pleted elaborate-but still secret-
plans for a nuclear test ban agree-
ment with the Soviet Union.
Three power nuclear talks open
in Moscow Monday and both
Western governments made it
clear they place great hopes on
the negotiatoins.
The United States embassy
issued a highly unusual statement
saying President John F. Ken-
nedy's representative, W. Averell
Harriman, is engaged on "poten-
tially one of the most significant
diplomatic moves of all times."
It said his mission to Moscow,
where ha was wartime ambassa-
dor, is "a sensitive and important
diplomatic reconnaissance."
The British used similar terms
in describing the task of their
negotiator, Lord Hailsham.
Prime Minister Harold Mac-
millan, in discussing the prospects
of a test ban with a newspaper
interviewer, said: "I can't think
of anything more important at
this time, either in itself or for
East-West relations generally."
A few days ago in a statement
to the House of Commons he pic-
tured a complete test ban as "the
great prize" which lay before the
big powers.
Yet it seems from all indications
that the best the Harriman-Hail-
sham mission can accomplish is a
partial test ban prohibiting nuc-
lear explosions in all environ-
ments except underground.
International i n s pe c t io nar-
rangements are necessary in the
We tern view to prevent cheat-
ing , on underground tests. The
Russians have balked at any pol-
icing provisions. They claim these
would open the Soviet Union to
Harriman and Hailsham are
only empowered to negotiate a
nuclear test ban. They are free
to discuss-but not \to bargain-
on other subjects the Russians
may bring up such as non-aggres-
sion treaty between the NATO and
Warsaw Pact powers, or a com-
mitment against the spread of
nuclear weapons.
Harriman arrived in London
'Thursday night. His talks with
Hailsham continued through the
At midday the American envoy

Liord Home and was Macmillan's
guest at a Working luncheon also

Minister Peter.torneycroft and

mier Nikita S. Khrushchev's lat-
est views as reported to Macmillan
by Soviet Ambassador Alexander
In Western eyes, there are two
objections to making a nuclear
E test. ban conditional on agreement
on some other East-West issue, as
Khrushchev has implied he wants.
First, such a technique compli-
cates the whole effort in Moscow
to salvage something from the
five-year-old deadlock on the test
an issue.
Second, such things as non-
aggression pacts involve delicate
tactors relating to the exhisting
power balance in Europe and can-
not be rushed into.

Western test ban discussions
Hits Bill
On Rights

By The Associated Press

Barnett of Mississippi accused
President John F. Kennedy and
his. Attorney General, brother yes-
terday of encouraging civil rights
demonstrations which he said are
"largely Communist-inspired."
Barnett told a Senate hearing
that enactment of the civil rights
bills proposed by the Kennedy ad-
ministration not only would mean
the end of constitutional govern-
ment in this country but would
"result in racial violence of un-
imaginable scope."
In another Congressional hear-
ing, Rep. Joe D. Waggoner Jr.
(D-La) said the President has
issued "an open invitation to mass
violence" by saying that Negroes
will seek a remedy in the streets
if Congress does not pass the civil
rights bill.
Martial Law

Red Chinese
Fail in Talks
With Russia
MOSCOW ()-The Communist
Chinese acknowledged "with heavy
hearts" today that their talks
with the Soviet Union have failed
but held the door open for new
attempts to heal the widening
breach in the Communist world.
"We want unity, not a split,"
the official Peking People's Daily
said in breaking the silence that
had shrouded the Chinese Soviet
negotiations under way in Moscow
since July '5. But it said "the
present situation is very grave."
Communist sources said the
meetings are expected to end in
the next two or three days.
This would wind up the con-
frontation before the opening of
United States, British and Soviet
nuclear test ban talks in Moscow.
The test ban talks are due to
begin Monday.
The Russians have doggedly
pushed ahead with their talks
with the West over the objections
of the Chinese, who scoff at ne-
gotiations and demand militant
action to bring down the house of
The negotiations sought to rec-
oncile Soviet Premier Khrush-
chev's policy of peaceful coexist-
ence with the West and Chinese
leader Mao Tze-Tung's advocacy
of a tough line. Neither of the
top Communist chieftains took
part in the discussions; they were
conducted by lower-level negotia-
tors. Communist sources said the
meetings are expected to wind up
in two or three days.
The Peking editorial, broadcast
by the official New China News
Agency, said it had hoped rela-
tions with. Moscow would be eased
by the talks "but we 'now have
to point out with heavy hearts
that events have gone contrary
to our hopes."
Western circles: here showed
guarded optimism about, the pros-
pects for an agreement on the
long deadlocked issue. The Rus-
sians have doggedly pushed ahead
for the talks despite the objec-
tions of the Chinese.
The Peking paper expressed
hope that new Soviet-Chinese
talks can be held.
"If the differences cannot be
resolved today, they cannwait un
til tomorrow," the editorial said.
"If they cannot be resolved this
year, they can wait until next
But the editorial also launched
into a defense of China's position
and renewed the attack on Moscow
for the expulsion of three Chinese
diplomats and two students. The
five were ousted for distributing
copies of a Chinese blast against
the Russians which had been ban-
ned in Moscow.
As Red China and Russia thus
remain unreconciled, satellite
countries issued denunciations
testifying to the widening cracks
in the Communist apparatus.
Hungarian Premier Janos Ka-
dar, visiting a Moscow aircraft
factory, accused the Chinese of
"trying to impose an arbitrary+
viewpoint on the international+
workers movement."
Communist North Viet Nam fir-
ed a blast at President Tito of
Yugoslavia-and at the Soviet Un-
ion by implication-for advocating
peaceful coexistence.

WASHINGTON ()- The total
Communist party membership in
the world is approximately 40 mil-
lion, a government analysis show-
ed recently.
The Communist state parties,
of which the Chinese with 17 mil-
lion members is the largest, ac-
count for 36 million of the total,
the report said.
The largest parties outside the
Soviet orbit remain the Indone-
sian and Italian with an estimated
1,750,000 .in Indonesia and be-
tween 1,200,000 and 1,500,000 in
Italy, the report added.
Discussing t h e Communist
party's effort to expand, the re-
port said that "in Africa, the main
Soviet thrust continued to be di-
rected toward the encouragement
of leftwing nationalist movements
on the assumption that they will
prove susceptible to Communist
penetration and capture. '
"Communist movements of some
significance exist' in Morocco,
Tunisia, Sudan, Madagascar and
the Union of South Africa," the
report said, "but the emergency

ControverS s
dential fact-finding panel in the

finished getting organized today
and scheduled meetings on Mon-
day and Tunesday with both sides.
Then it set a target date of
next Friday to give a report to
President Kennedy so he can fash-
ion legislative proposals for sub-
mission to Congress by July 22.
July 29 is the railroads' tentative
date for putting into effect work-
rule changes which the unions say
will bring an immediate strike.
Secretary of Labor W. Willard
Wirtz, chairman of the six-man
board named by Kennedy to take
a new look at the four-year-old
controversy, said spokesmen for
the railroads and five on-train un-
ions will be asked to give precise;
views on various issues.
More Issues
Wirtz had said earlier that many
people are not aware that there
is much more to the dispute than
the issues of knocking out 40,000
jobs of firemen- on diesel loco-
The committee, at. its opening
90-minute meeting yesterday, ask-
ed the railroads and the unions to
begin assembling material for the,
panel, which defined its major job
as fact-finding. Mediation was not
ruled out if the accosion arises,
but so far there was no sign of
such an opportunity opening up.
Today's session, without either
of the sides present, was devoted
to getting operational procedures
ironed out and lining up a staff of
about half a dozen specialists from
the labor and commerce depart-

sis of the Communist
tivities, the report had1
Great Britain -

party membership estimated be-
tween 28,000 and 29,500, although
31,400 claimed. "The Communist
party of Great Britain which has
not been represented in Parlia-
ment since 1945, is considered in-
significant as a national political
party. It does hold a few seats at
the local government level."
France - Communist p a r t y
membership estimated at 250,000
with 429,000 claimed. "The French
Communist party suffered a se-
vere electoral defeat in the 1958
Parliamentary elections. . . . how-
ever, since 1959 workers' discon-
tent with economic conditions and
constant fear of right-wing ex-
tremism have tended to reduce
the party's political isolation.''
Italy-Communist party mem-
bership estimated at 1,200,000 to
1,500,000 with 1,729,000 claimed.
"The Italian Communist party
has supporters in almost every
social class and in every geo-
graphic area of Italy. Most of its
members, however a r e urban

Communist party membership es-
timated at 35,000 to 50,000 with
an estimated 5,000 party members

"informed sources" painted their
rosy picture in Washington, Homer
Bigart of the New York Times,
having finished a half year in
South Viet Nam, wrote:
"The issue remains in doubt ...
the Vietnamese president seems
incapable of winning the loyalty
of his people . . . Washington de-
cided it was too risky to prod
Diem publicly . . . efforts to ob-
tain major political and social
reforms were quietly dropped."
Another half year later-in Feb-
ruary, 1963-Richard Dudman of
the St. Louis Post-Dispatch re-
ported on South Viet Nam. Taking
aim at President Diem, his "ad-
viser" brother, Ngo Dinh Nhu. and
the brother's wife, the trio which
runs the country, Dudman said:
"They are undemocratic, self-
righteous, unpopular, cunning,
clannish, repressive.
Late last month a dozen prom-
inent Protestant, Jewish and
Buddhist religious leaders in this
country assailed what they called
the persecution of Buddhists in
South Viet Nam. On top of this,
American newsmen were man-
handled by Diem's secret police.
Yesterday Ambassador Frederick
E. Nolting, returning to South
Viet Nam for the last time before
turning his job over to Lodge,
said the United States stands for
freedom of religion and the press.
This was reported from Saigon as
implied criticism of Diem.
If the Kennedy Administration
feels it has to imply criticism of
Diem, instead of saying it plainly,
it is a good illustration of how
much it feels it must handle him
gingerly even though he couldn't
survive without United States
