Presidential Statement Predicts








Vote Down
WASHINGTON ('-The Senate
defeated yesterday the first at-
tempt by opponents to rewrite the
administration's Communications
Satellite Bill.
It rejected, 56 to 19, an amend-
ment by Sen. Albert Gore (D-
Tenn) to require the State De-
partment to conduct or supervise
all negotiations with foreign coun-
tries and approve all agreements
involving the proposed global sat-
ellite communications system.
The bill would set up a private-
ly owned, government-regulated
corporation to operate the United
States part of the system and al-
low it to conduct business negotia-
tions with foreign countries and
agencies with the State Depart-
ment advising on foreign policy.
Vote Today
The big issue will be decided to-
day when the Senate votes on a
bipartisan leadership proposal to
invoke debate-limiting cloture and
end a filibuster that has blocked
final action on the measure.
The Senate, in a snowstorm of
parliamentary maneuvering, ad-
journed last night, heading off a
threatened night-long speech by
Sen. Wayne M o r s e (D - Ore)
against the administration bill.
Sen. Everett M. Dirksen (R-Ill),
the Senate GOP leader, and oth-
ers teamed up in the moves which
forced a 15-6 roll call vote to ad-
journ the session at 10:34 p.m. un-
til noon today.
Offer Changes
Opponents of the bill, battling
for government ownership of the
proposed communications corpora-
tion, have offered dozens of
amendments. and these could re-
quire days to dispose of even if
cloture is adopted.
Sen. Robert S. Kerr (D-Okla),
in a lengthy argument against the
Gore amendment, said it would
"destroy the corporation to put
shackles about it so that it couldn't
do anything except when the State
Department permits it."i
Protesters Get
Stiff Penalties
In Albany Jail
ALBANY WP)-Five integration-
ists drew stiff sentences yester-I
day as the result of an attempt to4
desegregate a motel restaurant in
this racial trouble spot.
Fines of $200 or jail terms of 60
days were meted out by Recorder-
A. N. Durden Sr., to three Negroes
and two white persons who were
arrested Saturday at the Holiday
Inn dining room.
Convicted under a city ordinance
against idling or loitering in places
of business were John Robert Zell-
ner, 21, of Atlanta and Penelope
Patch, 19, of Englewood, N.J., both
white; The Rev. Robert M. Kin-
loch of New York, and The Rev.
Samuel B. Wells and Ruby Doris
Smith, both of Albany.
They were arrested in the mo-
tel dining room after refusing to
leave when ordered out by the
manager. The city ordinance un-
der which they were convicted was
amended recently to provide for
arrests when persons refuse to
leave a business place after being
told to do so,
Zellner, who had been staying
at the motel, said he invited his
companions into the dining room.
He said he had been served there

Sir Bernard Lovell, director of
Britain's Jodrell Bank radio tele-

be surprised if both men came

or are extremely close to each oth-
Later last night, an official of
the Sohio Research Center, which
has been tracking the vehicles, said
the two space ships could have
touched one another during their
Dr. A. L. Jones, supervisor of
basic research at the center, said
plottings indicated the two crafts
began to separate just before 1:26
p.m. (EST) Sunday. He said the
first actual measurement of dis-
tance between the ships indicated
they were 75 miles apart and the.
next measurement showed they
were even farther apart.
Lists Time
But, he said, the curve shows
that before the first measure-
ment yesterday the ships had
reached zero separation. That
would have been shortly before
1:26 p.m.
He said the progressive widen-
ing of distance between the two
craft led him at first to believe
they had failed to come together,
but the plottings showed they
should have met.
"All the data we have supports
the contention the ships met," he
said. "This includes the fact we
never have received any voice com-
munications from Vostok IV."
Dr. Jones said one of the cosmo-
nauts could have transferred from
his own. ship to the other at zero
separation, but emphasized this
was merely speculation.
Report Mileage
"The Falcon," Maj. Andrian Ni-
kolayev, 32, made his 40th orbit

EST), the Tass news agency re-
ported. That would be about 1,-

"The Golden Eagle," code name
for Lt. Col. Pavel Popovich, 31, at
about the same time completed his
24th trip around the planet, mak-
ing about 264,000 miles covered
since his Vostok IV was launched
Sunday. He was believed to be still
somewhere in the vicinity of Vos-
tok III.
Both had far outstripped the
best previous Soviet space effort
and had covered distances beyond
that to the Moon.
The distance to the Moon ranges
from 221,463 to 252,710 miles.

ning meal and radioed the control

shaky government of Argentine
President Jose Maria Guido-buf-
feted by Peron-hating army chiefs
and by an inflaction-ridden econ-
omy-was seized with a cabinet
crisis last night.
Two ministers submitted their
resignations and others were re-
ported ready to follow.
Interior Minister Carlos A. Ad-
rogue, under fire from Argentina's
60 political parties for his part in
a recent decree forbidding Peron-

Guido twice refused to accept it.
Second Minister
S h o r t 1 y afterward, Defense
Minister Jose Luis Cantilo, critized
for his handling of the army crisis,
offered his resignation for the
second time in three days.
Guido said he had not decided
whether to accept it.
Cantilo offered to resign Satur-
day at the height of the dispute
between Guido and the military
over choice of a new war minister.
This crisis apparently had been
smoothed over when a compromise

WASHINGTON (2 -- President John F. Kennedy turned
thumbs down last night on a quick tax cut and reaffirmed his
goal of a multi-billion-dollar reduction to become effective
next Jan. 1.
But he pledged to call Qongress into special session and
ask for immediate action if an economic crisis should develop
later this year.
There is no sign now of any such crisis, the President told
the people via television and radio from the White House.
Kennedy said there is an "absence of a clear and present dan-

OVER THE WALL-A battle of tear gas and water cannon was touched off yesterday between East
and West German police during the demonstrations marking the first birthday of the Berlin Wall.
Riots Mark Wall Anni'versary

BERLIN (A') -- West Berliners'
pent-up hatred of the year-old
Communist wall poured out last
night in a series of violent pro-
test demonstrations including at-
tacks against Soviet vehicles and
the barricade itself.
Berlin Tension
Remains High
WASHINGTON OP) - Secretary
of State Dean Rusk and Soviet
Ambassador Anatoly F. Dobrynin
talked yesterday about Berlin on
the first anniversary of the wall
dividing the city.
The result as reported by the
State Department. "No significant
change in the situation."
The Russians had asked for the
interview on Sunday. He did not
bring any written message from
his government, nor did he submit
any new proposals or mention the,
anniversary at all, officials re-
ported afterwards.
Neither the State Department
nor Dobrynin explained why Mos-
cow sent its envoy to see Rusk on
this day, when world attention
was focused on Berlin anyway. But
it strongly indicated that the Rus-
sian came to bring up a minor
point as a follow-up of the recent
Geneva conversations.

What West Berlin officials hop-
ed would be a quiet observance of
the first anniversary of the Red
wall turned into near chaos that
lasted until late evening.

police from approaching the wall.

the attacks on the Soviet cars. He
talked there with Erich Duensing,
West Berlin police commissioner.
Stone Police
Duensing told reporters he was
most concerned about the demon-
strations in the Bernauerstrasse
area. There, he said, about 2.000
West Berlin demonstrators had at-
tacked his men with stones.
Reporters on the spot said the
stones appeared to be aimed by
the demonstrators at the East Ber-
lin police beyond the wall.
West Berlin police cars were
linedsup between the demonstra-
tors and the wall and got some of
the stones too.
Nehru Offers
To Hold Talks
With Chinese
NEW DELHI t/P)-Prime Minis-
ter Nehru offered yesterday to talk
with the Communists about eas-
ing tensions along the India-China
border, but sharply denied he is
leaning toward appeasing Peiping.
He told Parliament he is pre-
pared to enter into discussions
with the Chinese on withdrawal of
forces of both countries from the
disputed Ladakh area "to create
an appropriate climate for further
Demands Withdrawal
But he emphasized that India
would not enter into any direct
negotiations on settlement of the
border dispute until the Chinese
forces withdraw from territory,
they claim in Ladakh.
The Communists have taken over
control of 12,000 square miles of
the disputed area, and vowed "no
force on earth could oblige us" to
pull back. India controls the other
39,000 miles of the disputed waste-
lands along the Himalayan fron-
Nehru said his government's po-
sition had been misunderstood in
laying down terms for preliminary
talks and declared:
Will Defend
"We will protect the honor of
India and the defense of India to
the utmost of our capacity."
He warned "the situation on the
frontier remains as serious as it
has been in the past and is likely
to continue to be in the future."

a quickie tax cut "could neith-
er be justified nor enacted."
He recited economic data, and
pointed to charts, to show that
the economy is moving up-that
"there is every reason for confi-
dence by the American people in
the American system."
He renewed his pledge to ask
Congress next year for a massive
reform of the American tax sys-
tem with substantial income tax
rate reductions as part of the over-
Equal Plan
This plan, including all-bracket
cuts in individual and corporate
rates and "rooting out of inequi-
ties" would, he said, place billions
of dollars in the hands of con-
sumers and businessmen. And this,
in turn, would create new jobs and
expand the American economy, he
The present bite on the Ameri-
can people, he said, is too severe,
hampering, economic growth. But,
he said, immediate tax reduction is
a weapon that should be "fired
only in clear emergency." To pro-
pose one at this time would need-
lessy undercut confidence at home
and abroad.
As for the permanent reform
measure he proposes for next year,
he said leaders of the Senate and
House, pius Rep. Wilbur Mills (D-
Ark), chairman of the tax writing
House Ways and Means Commit-
tee, have assured him of speedy
action in 1963.
Ignores Byrd
He made no mention of the at-
titude of Sen. Harry F. Byrd (D-
Va), powerful chairman of the
Senate Finance Committee, who
has opposed most of Kennedy tax
reform ideas this year.
Kennedy displayed charts to the
TV audience to show that the
country has bounced back a long
way from the recession he said
was in progress when he took of-
fice in January 1961.
His figures included gross na-
tional product (total of goods and
services), up 10 per cent; indus-
trial production, up 16 per cent,
wages and salaries, up 10 per
cent, corporate profits up 26 per
cent, and unemployment rate down
23 per cent.
But in comparison with some
other countries, Kennedy said, the
United States has been standing
still in economic development for
five years.
Among his specific measures,
Kennedy asked for financial help
to colleges and universities. Twice
as many young people will be try-
ing to enter college in 1970 as in
1960, he said.

most desirable long-range eco-
nom ic consequences."

chairman of the Senate Finance
Committee and a frequent oppon-
ent of Kennedy tax recommend a-

'There is only one reason for
high federal taxes. That reason is

mit a tax bill in January. He will

Koto Player. Widens Range
Daily Correspondent
NEW YORK-Kimio Eto is a man with a mission, and a man well
equipped to fulfill that mission.
As an outstanding performer on the koto, the ancient Japanese
string instrument, his plan to make his instrument into a vital, con-
temporary medium of expression has led him to highly successful per-
formances at Town Hall and Carnegie Hall, and promises to take him
I yet further.
Gains Recognition

At 35, Eto, whose stature as a performer is made even more im-
pressive by the fact of his 30-year blindness, can look back on train-
ing under Japan's finest koto player, Michio Miyagi, acclaim within
his own country, and almost 10 years of life in America, with growing
recognition here for his instrument and his talent.
This fall he will perform at the new Philharmonic Hall at Lin-
coln Center, and hopes to be able to play his new concerto for koto
and orchestra with the Philharmonic.
