HELSINKI, July 29-The eighth World Youth Festival for Peace
and Friendship officially began tonight as 15,000 students and young
people from over 100 countries joined roughly 50,000 Finns in a mass
assembly of cordiality at the Helsinki's Olympic Stadium.
The national contingents entered the Stadium in alphabetical
order by their Finnish names, after having paraded through the
streets of Helsinki in that order, each singing its own nation's songs
for the 100,000 Finns who lined the streets to see the colorful and
soundful display.
Each national group marched once around the inside of the Sta-
dium before taking their places in the stands. All remained standing
until the last participants were in their places and the Festival flag
was raised three hours later,

WASHINGTON (P)-Sen. Wayne Morse (D-Ore) threatened yes-

cations Satellite Bill.
Morse, one of the leaders of a group that blocked Senate consid-
eration of the measure for five days, got into a. row with Sen. Alex-
ander Wiley (R-Wis) and promised to answer Wiley "at somelength
after Aug. 10." That is the date set for return of the bill to the

Sljosson Cites
Byrs'Past
By PHILIP SUTIN
Fourth Congressional District
GOP hopeful Chester Byrns, '51L,
remained the center of controversy
yesterday as University professor
emeritis Preston Slosson of the
history department defended him
against charges that he was sym-
pathetic to world federalism and
not a faithful Republican and the
Berrien County Republican Screen-
ing Committee attacked him.
Contacted by the Benton Har-
bor News-Palladium and the St.
Joseph Hearld-Press, Prof. Slos-
son, a sponsor of the United Fed-
eralist chapter on campus, said
that Byrns was not a member of
the UWF and that he had only
moderated a panel for them.
He added that he knew Byrns
was a Republican, but that he did
not know how active he was. Prof.
Slosson, however, denied saying
"Byrns was president of the cam-
pus Republican group which aided
in my defeat" as reported in the
two papers. Prof. Slosson ran for
Congress in 1948.
Fight 'Amusing'
Prof. Slosson, a Federalist, in-
dicated his amusement at the con-
troversy. "The idea of this ac-
cusation has me in stitches. It is
the first time that I had to bear
witness that anybody was not a
member of a group to which I
belong."
The committee under Niles busi-
nessman C. C. "Duke" Harrah
investigated the four GOP can-
didates for the seat now held by
retiring Rep. Claire Hoffman (R-
Allegan) and I specifically the
charges by constitutional conven-
tion delegate Lee Boothby (R-
Niles) that Byrns favored world
federalism in his student days at
the University and that he had
not been a faithful Republican.
In a report released yesterday
morning, Harrah revealed that the
committee found Boothby and fel-
low candidate, Speaker of the
House Don R. Pears (R-Buchan-
an) "qualified Republicans" and
recommended them for endorse-
ment to the county committee.
Cites Letter
"We can find no evidence to re-
fute his statement in a letter to
The Daily that he is a member of
no political party," Harrah said.
"Yet he claims to be a life-long
Republican."
Byrns refused to appear at'
the screening committee hearing
Thursday night. He accused Har-
rah and Berrien County Republi-
can chairman George A. Evers of
"Trying to smear me in a kangaroo
court."
"The Republican party does not
have political bosses or machines
who "screen" candidates. The only
people who are the "screeners" are
the voters in the Aug. 7 primary,"
he declared.

ings.
Committee Hearings
The flareup came at a commit-
tee session at which Atty. Gen.
Robert F. Kennedy urged passage
of the measure as "one of the most
important pieces of legislation of-
fered by this administration."
Kennedy cut short his testimony
to catch a plane for the west coast
and was replaced in the witness
chair by Newton N. Minow, chair-
man of the Federal Communica-
tions Commission.
Minow, who described the bill
as a marriage of government and
free enterprise, with two "in har-
ness together" to launch and oper-
ate a global system of communi-
cation satellites, underwent exten-
sixe questioning by Morse.
Views Policy
Wiley drew from Minow that
many of the policy questions Morse
raised about the proposed private-
ly owned, government-regulated
satellite corporation would still
exist if the government owned and
operated it. '
Morse, who contends along with
several other Democrats that theI
corporation should be government-
owned and operated, said:
"The senator tempts me. I will
answer him and Mr. Minow at
some length after Aug. 10." Wiley
then walked out of the room.
Government Unable
Minow testified the government
"is not equipped to operate a
communications system of its
own."
Morse said he will offer an
amendment to require the corpor-
ation to handle government busi-
ness at cost, but Minow said oth-
er governments would want "re-
ciprocal rates" and this would nec-
essitate an international agree-
ment.
Minow noted that 52 per cent of
the private corporation's profits
would be returned to the govern-
ment in taxes.
Throughout the afternoon Ed-
ward R. Murrow, director of the
United States Information Agen-
cy, waited to be called. After a
wrangle over holding a night ses-
sion, it was decided to defer Mur-
row's testimony until Monday,
when Secretary of State Dean
