USSR Vetoes Inquiry

Draft, Stron~



Security Council last night deci-
sively struck down the latest.
Soviet spy plane accusation against
the United States.
The Russians in turn vetoed an
American demand for an impartial,
international investigation.
The 9-2 vote of the 11-nation
Coucil against the Russian de-
mands followed a vigorous Ameri-
can attack accusing the USSR of
attempting to spy on missile and
other military secrets off the coasts
of the United States. Only Com-
munist Poland voted with the Rus-
The Soviet Union also used its
big-power veto privilege to kill
a resolution to permit Interna-
tional Red Cross contact with two
crewmen held captive by the Rus-
sians since the downing of an
American RB47 plane.
The votes came after a six-hour
final session on the Soviet charge
that the RB47 plane had pene-
trated Russian air space before it
was shot down.
The United States retorted that
the plane was downed over inter-
national water on July 1 after a
vain Soviet fighter attempt to push
it over Soviet territory.
The Soviet Union cast its 88th
and 89th veto in its history as a
Security Council member.
The climax of the debate came
when Henry Cabot Lodge, chief
United States Delegate to the UN,
accused the Soviet Union of a long
series of air and sea spy incidents,
including an attempt to seize the
test vehicle of a Polaris missile
ed by a nuclear submarine off
S .Atlantic Coast
Traces Red
"The implications raised by
Soviet technological advances are
tough, nagging questions, but no
amount of hypnotic-like examina-
tion of Russian science is going to
provide answers for them," Dr.
Hans Haymann warned yesterday.
Haymann, a research economist
for the Rand Corporation, traced
the past American attitudes to-
ward science in the USSR, ex-
amined the nature of Soviet re-
search, and posed the questions
that face us as a result of it.
Self-Analysis Needed

Lodge reserved his bitterest
words, however, for the Soviet veto
of an Italian resolution which
would have called upon the Red
Cross to make contact with the
survivors of the RB47. Two of the
survivors are captives, three are
listed as missing, and one died in
the incident.

"That was a compassionate reso-
lution," Lodge said, "and they
turned it down. I tell you, it is a
sad thing when a people as warm
hearted as the Soviet people is
represented by a government as
cold-hearted, brutal, hard and
cynical as they showed themselves
to be tonight."

winning drama, "Picnic," opens
tonight at 8 p.m. at the Lydia

The drama, the fourth presen-

tially about women and is set in
the sultry heat of the end of sum-
mer when everyone is waiting'
lazily for the end of summer and
yet not wanting fall to come.
The women in "Picnic" are
typical of the women in small
midwestern towns. They range
from young to middle-aged.
Main Character1
The main character is 18-year-1
old Madge, the "prettiest girl in{
town" who accepts her femininity
gracefully and is both sweet andl

Friendly Neighbor
Mrs. Potto is the friendly, lov-

has cheerfully accepted the fact
that she must spend the rest of

Speaking on "The USSR in the

scribed "a quixotic and irrational
attitude toward the consistent,
orderly, and predictable Russian
The United States has predomi-
nantly had two extreme views of
Soviet science, Haymann claimed.
The first was that of the pre-
Sputnik era in which it was re-
garded as hopelessly laggard. "We
possessed an equal mixture of in-
credulity, complacency, and arro-
gance," he said.
Naive Belief .
"We naively believed in the in-
nate scientific superiority of the
West. We felt that scientific re-
search could only flourish in a
democracy and that it would be
throttled in an authoritarian
state." ,
After Sputnik, the nation swung
to the opposite pole. "We engaged
in an orgy of self-criticism and
breast beating. We regarded our-
selves as only a third-rate scien-
tific power. The Russians became
supermen whose single - minded

Seeks Strong Planks
These developments on the
fringes of the Republican National
Convention were interrelated.
Rockefeller wanted stronger and
more specific planks, believed they
were in sight, and took his pre-
viously uncommitted New York
delegation and its 96 votes over
to Nixon. But he did it with no
warm praise of Nixon, the man.
The new rights plank was a
compromise, hammered out under
a virtual ultimatum from Vice-

The chief executive, as expected,

"Are the Soviets willing to mea-

Cuban Revolution Example.

LAS MERCEDES, CUBA {Pk' - Fidel Castro, obviouply still a sick
man, said yesterday the example of his revolution is attracting other
Latin American peoples "toward the same plan."
The bearded prime minister, wearing a floppy straw hat and cape
to protect him against a rain that began soon after he started to
speak, looked drawn and haggard as he addressed a mass rally to
celebrate the 7th anniversary of his revolutionary movement in the
mountains of eastern Cuba.
In his opening remarks he said his poor health had prevented his
taking part in pre-rally ceremonies. He was stricken with what his
doctors called pneumonia July 9.Ca
