House Approves,
Mass Transit Bill
Measure Similar to Senate Action;
Would Give Cities $375 Million
WASHINGTON (A)-The House passed yesterday a bill for $375
million in federal aid to cities struggling with problems of decayed
and dwindling mass transit systems.
Passage of the measure, similar to one already approved by the
Senate, was a victory for President Lyndon B. Johnson and for a
coalition of Democrats and urban-area Republicans. Johnson had
put mass transit legislation high

GENEVA (AP)--An American inspection plan to implement Presi-
dent Lyndon B. Johnson's proposal that the nuclear powers agree
to stop producing fissionable material for arms purposes faces
almost certain rejection by the Soviet Union.
The plan was presented to the 17-nation disarmament confer-
ence yesterday by chief United States delegate William C. Foster.
It provides for inspection of all installations producing fission-
able material, but stresses that this does not involve inspection of

It is believed that Peking has
decided to take moves to ease up
the threat of war after learning
of the determined stand being
taken by President Lyndon B.
Johnson on Viet Nam and due to
its own relations with the Soviet
The new policy probably does
not mean that the Chinese will
stop spurring the pro-Communist
Pathet Lao in Laos and the Viet
Cong in South Viet Nam to more
militant action. But it does appear
that propaganda on China's home
front is not emphasizing prepara-
tions for a war with the U.S. as
much as it has done previously.
In line with this, the Peking
press Sunday suddenly ended two
weeks of increasingly threatening
language that has warned of war
in Indo-China unless the U.S.
halted its air operations in Laos.
The new Peking line has sub-
ordinated news of military de-
velopments in Laos and played up
news about national personalities
and affairs of state.
The past correlation between
China's press statements and im-
pending policy actions leads news
analysists to discount the possi-
bility that the softer line may be
covering up a new military
thrust in Southeast Asia.
House Group
Babies Aid Bill
WASHINGTON (P) - President
Lyndon B. Johnson's streamlined
foreign aid program cleared the
House Appropriations Committee
yesterday with the smallest money
cut since the Korean War.
The approval of $3.3 billion of
the requested $3.5 billion was a
victory not only for Johnson, but
for Rep. George H. Mahon (D-
Texas) who recently became chair-
man of the appropriations com-
Johnson asked this year for
$3.5 billion-a billion dollars less
than the late President John F.
Kennedy's final request-and call-
ed it a barebones program that
could not be cut without affecting
United States security.
The House Foreign Affairs Com-
mittee, which sets the ceiling for
the money bill, approved virtual-
ly every cent of the $3.5-billion
request in its authorization bill.
All of the $200 million cut by
the Appropriations Committee lies
in the ecenomic side of the pro-
gram. The military request of $1
billion was approved untouched.

on his priority list of bills to be
passed this year.
The bill would authorize appro-
priations of $75 million for the
first year and $150 million in each
of the two succeeding years for
research and actual purchase of
buses and other equipment to build
up transit systems. Local sources
would have to provide at least
one-third of the funds.
The bill's own sponsors propos-
ed substantial amendments to
make it more acceptable to wav-
ering legislators outside the metro-
politan areas. The most signifi-
cant change cut down the total
authorization from $500 million to
$375 million. Rep. Albert Rains (D-
Ala), handling the change, told
the House that he sponsored it to
make the bill more acceptable and
to bring it closer to the Senate
The Senate bill, which sponsors
now must seek to reconcile with
the House-passed measure, pro-
vides $375 million for grants and
an additional $375 million for loan
Other amendments adopted are
designed to guard against use of
federal funds to buy out private
transit systems and convert them
to public operation and to guar-
antee to transit employes that
their working conditions obtained
under union contracts would not
be impaired.

Soviet Deputy Foreign Minister
Valerian A. Zorin made no refer-
ence to the plan. But Czechoslo-
vakia, which usually agrees with
the Soviet Union, denounced it as
"failing to open up the possibili-
ties of real agreement during 1964,
as called for by Johnson in his
address to this conference last
The American plan offered "ver-
ification without intrusion" in the
event of a cut-off agreement.
The Czech delegate, Karel Kur-
ka, said Foster's speech "does not
reduce nuclear danger, slow down
the arms race or contribute to a
non-dissemination of weapons."
Western officials here said there
was little doubt that Zorin would
follow a similar line.
The Soviet Union frequently has
charged that American insistence
on inspection procedure is moti-
vated by the desire to create "le-
galized espionage.''
Foster said that with regard to
the inspection of U-235 separation
plants, which produce enriched
uranium, and nuclear reactors it
would not even be necessary for
inspectors to enter the plants.
He said chemical separation
plants whichdproduce fissionable
material would require much more
detailed inspection. But he pro-
posed an alternate system which
would involverplacing under na-
tional safeguards an amount of
fissionable material to be deter-
mined by inspectors.
They would then be able to
check, by a series of measure-
ments, whether any plant was ex-
ceeding production of nuclear ma-
terial allowed for peaceful pur-
The inspection system would
provide for an initial declaration
by the nuclear powers of all plants
producing fissionable materials.
This would be followed by inspec-
tions which would:
-Shut-down plant restarting
-Guard against diversification
of production for unallowed pur-
-Check to insure that no clan-
destine plants were in operation

arms purposes.
Alter Elections
WASHINGTON (t)-A drive to
change election procedures in the
NAACP - and perhaps to foster
more aggressive leadership poli-
cies-was discussed yesterday by
the organization's board of direc-
tors at its 55th national conven-
Some supporters of the move be-
lieve it will result in the unseating
of the association's white presi-
dent, Arthur B. Spingarn. But the
leader of the drive to change,
L. Joseph Overton, said the aim
is to democratize the process of
electing a president.
Nevertheless, m a n y of the
younger and more militant mem-
bers of the civil rights group are
known to favor tougher and
younger leadership-by a Negro-
in view of current race troubles
in the nation.

THIS CHARRED STATIONWAGON belonging to three civil rights students working in Mississippi
on voter registration this summer, was found Tuesday in a swampy area near Philadelphia, Miss.,
where the three disappeared. A massive hunt for the trio has brought former Central Intelligence
Agency head Allan Dulles and 100 sailors to the Southern state.
New'~f' Vaccine May Halt Cancer

vaccine against cancer that works
on rabbits-and may explain why
some human cancers disappear -
was reported yesterday to the'
American Medical Association.
Dr. Alfred Strauss of the Mi-
chael Reese Hospital and Medical;
Center in Chicago said he has
injected 100 immunized rabbits
with cancer several times in the
past two years and not one has
developed a malignancy. Non-im-
miunizedd animals given the same
injections died in 8 to 12 weeks.
He also cited five cases of what'
he called "clinical cures" in hu-
mans, one of whom is still living
30 years after treatment.
Electrical Knife
Dr. Strauss, who has been treat-
ing cancer since 1913, said his
vaccine is prepared from cancer-
ous rabbit tissue cut away with.
an electrical knife, a process
known as electro-coagulation.
When injected into other rab-
bits, he said, this electro-coagu-
lated material apparently immu-
nizes them against that kind of
His experiments so far have
been limited to Brown-Pearce car-
cinoma, but he said he plans to
extend the research to other types
of cancer in humans.
Immunizes Humans
Use of an electrical knife to
remove tumors, Dr. Strauss added,
also seems to immunize human
patients against their own can-
He listed five cases whose tu-
mors were removed with electrical
knives instead of scalpels and said
not one of them had a recurrence
of cancer.
Absorption of the electrically
killed cancer cells, he said, appar-
ently generated antibodies against
that type of cancer.
"In order to investigate this
further, experiments have been de-
vised and are now in progress to
determine the possible immuniz-

ing effects of dead or dying tis-]
sue," Dr. Strauss said.1
He noted there have been in1
creasing reports in recent years
of tumors that disappeared and
added that "the concept that ne-
crotic (dead) tumor tissue may as-'
sume antigenic powers which stim-
ulate a specific antibody response
can be supported by clinical ob-
servations that tumors which un-
dergo marked necrosis occasional-

ly show spontaneous regression of
the primary tumor as well as the
metastases (spreading growth)."
(The American Cancer Society
reports that about 1.2 million
Americans have been apparently
"cured" of cancer, with the term
meaning they have no sign of the
disease after five years or longer
after first diagnosis and treatment.
The main treatments are surgery,
radiation and drugs, singly or in

and to various officials.
The unarmed,sailors separated

(Second in a series on University personalities in the news)
The University's more than 2100 researchers owe a lot to
Ralph Sawyer. His office of research administration will funnel
to them more than $42 million in federal funds this year.
As vice-president for research during the past five years,
Sawyer's persistent lobbying and crisp fund management have
persuaded federal agencies to provide $150 million for teachers
and students to explore anything from the problems of drop-
outs to the behavior of crickets.
From the Department of Health, Education and Welfare to
the National Space Administration, Sawyer today sells $2
worth of research for every $1
purchased and granted in 1959..
Best Measure
But for services rendered a
worth millions, the debt to > .
Sawyer can best be measured in
thousands. These are the mar-
ginal dollars on each grant
which must be squeezed from'
the University budget to meet
overhead-or indirect costs-
incurred in research. Unlike /
salaries and equipment pur-
chases, which make nice round
figures on Congressional requi-
sition slips, the indirect costs >{
are more difficult to account
They are the funds which pay
the janitor, heat the laboratory
and provide for Sawyer to ad-r
ministrate the grant in the DEAN RALPH SAWYER
first place.
On contracts-the rigid puirchase of specific rese arch
services-indirect costs are tabulated in as part of the bill. But
on the more loosely defined griants, Congr ess has quite directly
opposed subsidy of indirect expenses. It has set down a flat
precondition in its appropriation bills for federal agencies: a
school may receive no more than 20 per cent of the total
research cost as a refund for its indirect toil. Educators contend
that a reasonable level would be closer to 30 per cent.
Medical Example
To emphasize how this 10 per cent discrepancy can mean
millions, Sawyer pinpoints the medical school. On $5 million
worth of grants there last year, the University can collect only
$1 million for indirect costs. Actual cost: $1.5 million. So the
budget must be wrung for $500,000. Grant research in its
entirety will take over $2 million from University coffers
this year.
Sawyer is by no means a uniquely embittered research
administrator. Indirect costs have long been a hotline of
