Provincial Premier
Meets with Bunche
Katanga's Premier Moise Tshombe
last night raised doubts about the
arrival of UN troops in his prov-
ince but there were firm indica-
tions that the UN intends to move
in tomorrow as scheduled.
Tshombe, who declared Wednes-
day that UN forces would have to
tight their way into Katanga,
held a 2 /-hour meeting with
Ralph J. Bunche, troubleshooting
UN undersecretary.
The Premier later told newsmen
UN soldiers may not arrive tomor-
row. Then he hedged and said he
would not be surprised if they
come after all.
Ambassador Expelled
In Leopoldville, the C o n g o
government ordered Belgium's
aristocratic ambassador, Baron
Jean Van Den Bosch, out of the
country late yesterday, which fur-
ther complicates the UN effort to-
ward settlement of the Congo
The government also refused
any additional technical aid from
Belgium for the present.
The government charged Van
Den Bosch with responsibility for
recent untoward events in the
new nation.
The government also ordered all

Bunche declined any comment
on his talk with Tshombe, saying

Reliable informants in Leopold-

ENDS RECORD RUN-The X15 rocket plane piloted by Joe
Walker which broke the speed record for manned aircraft yester-
day settles down on the runway under the observation of an Air
Force chase plane (above).
Walker Pilots X-15 Rocket
In Fastest Mannied Flight
EDWARDS AIR FORCE BASE, Calif., (/)-The X15 rocket plane,
its pilot crying "Go, Go, Go," zoomed high over the California desert
yesterday on the fastest manned flight on recQrd-2.150 M.P.H.
Husky, curly-haired Joe Walker may even have gone a trifle
faster. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration said it
expects instrument checks to upgrade the mark.
Walker went all out in the X15 for 4 minutes and 15 seconds.

"y The Associated Press
Houston, Tex., was ordered yes-
terday to integrate its schools a
grade each year for 12 years,
starting this fall.
Houston is the largest segre-
gated school district in the nation
with 173 schools and 170,000 stu-
dents. About 25 per cent of the
pupils are Negroes.
Federal Judge Ben C. Connally
in issuing the order sharply criti-
cized the school board's plan for
integrating only three schools.
The school board plans to study
the Connally order Monday night.
One board member said he will
vote for appeal to the 5th circuit
court in New Orleans.
No Program Ready
John W. McFarland, superin-
tendent, said the board does not
have ready a program under
which Connally's order could be
carried out.
"We have no plans based on
this order," he said. "We had no
fore knowledge of it."
Connally's plan is the same as
one rejected July 19 by the 3rd
circuit court at Philadelphia. In a
2-1 ruling on Delaware public
schools the Philadelphia court
said a grade-a-year plan is too
slow. Total desegregation was or-
dered for 1961.
By a 5-1 majority, the Houston
school board June 1 asked Con-
nally to accept a plan under
which only three of Houston's
schools would be desegregated.
Connally's order yesterday de-
scribed the board plan involving
only one high school, one junior
high, and one elementary school
as "a palpable sham and subter-
fuge designed only to accomplish
further evasion and delay."
Accompanies Pledges
The board plan accompanied
pledges by individual members
that no student would be required
to attend an integrated school.
Meanwhile, backed by Supreme
Court support of its methods, the
Civil Rights Commission moved
yesterday to examine complaints
of denial of Negroes' voting rights.
It ordered a hearing Sept. 27 and
28 in Louisiana.
The hearing means the Com-
mission will be taking up again
where it left off last year when its
hearing procedures were attacked
in federal court.
Spokesmenusaid the number of
complaints runs into the dozens
and come from parishes (coun-
ties) throughout the state They
shied away from an earlier esti-
mate that at least 13 parishes
were involved.
The place for the hearing will
not be fixed for some days, but it
is likely all sessions will be held
in one city.
The Commission originally
ordered a hearing on voting com-
plaints to open in Shreveport, La.,
on July 13, 1959.
On July 12, a federal district
court enjoined the Commission
from conducting the inquiry on
grounds that it did not allow per-
sons being investigated to con-
front those who testified against
them or permit cross-examina-
But on June 20 the Supreme
Court held the Commission has
authority to conduct hearings un-
der the regulations questioned in
the Louisiana case.

Sea- Going
ing of North Atlantic Treaty Or-
ganization members with United
States Polaris missiles mounted
on surface ships was discussed
here yesterday.
Lincoln White, State Depart-
ment press officer, denied a pub-
lished London report which quoted
Western diplomats as saying
Navy-designed Polaris missiles
would be held up from delivery to
European allies.
He said the United States in-
tends to furnish the Allied Mili-
tary Command with ballistic mis-
siles of this advanced type.
Tentative Offer
Secretary of Defense Thomas S.
Gates, during a NATO meeting in
Paris last spring, made a tenta-
tive offer to provide those
NATO nations desiring intermed-
late range rockets with the Po-
laris missile. Discussions since
then had included the possibility
of putting the missile launchers
on railroad cars or canal boats to
provide mobility and reduce the
chance of the weapons being
knocked out in surprise attack.
The Navy designed the Polaris
primarily for firing from sub-
merged submarines. However, it
also has studied the possibility of
installing some launchers on sur-
face ships, such as cruisers.
Range Increased
The Navy is already stepping up
the range of the Polaris. A test
firing of an improbed model using
a lighter weight second stage en-
gine sent the rocket 1,300 miles
down range prom Cape Canaveral
yesterday, the longest distance
yet achieved by a Polaris. The
Navy believes that eventually the
Polaris range can be boosted to as
much as 2,500 miles.
This would provide NATO ships,
operating off the coast, with mis-
sile range reaching well into Eur-
opean Russia.
The NATO Council of Foreign
Ministers has not yet considered
the United States offer to deliver
Polaris missiles. One factor which
obviously would figure in consid-
erations is cost to the participat-
ing NATO countries.
The missiles, on a mass produc-
tion basis, are expected to cost
about $1,200,000 each. This does
not include the equally expensive
item for providing launchers. The
Navy calculates that to convert a
cruiser for Polaris missile use
might run as much as $186 million.

appointed yesterday to head its delegation to the 1960 UN General
The appointment was made by the new president, Joaquin Ba-
laguer. Balaguer, who had been vice-president, moved up Wednesday
after Rafael's brother Hector, president since 1952, quit the office on
grounds he was ill.
Balaguer immediately deposed Trujillo relatives from the com-
mand of the armed forces and the secretaryship of the presidential
office. He told congress his maine

NASHVILLE ()-Tennessee
Democrats renominated liberal-
minded Sen. Estes Kefauver yes-
terday for a third term over Judge
Andrew T. Taylor, a strong segre-
gationist and states righter.
Tabulations from 2,253 of 2,632
precincts, showed this decisive

ination is as good as election in
The figures came from all sec-
tions of the state, including met-
ropolitan Shelby County (Memp-
his), where Taylor expected an
overwhelming margin to support
his conservative stand on civil
rights. But Kefauver was running
slightly ahead, even there.
Without actually conceding de-
feat, Taylor said "there are two
strikes on me."
"I think the issue was pretty
clear cut," Taylor told newsmen
shortly before 10 p.m. "It was a

Walker's flight was no inten-
tional try at record breaking. It
was simply a miximum-perform-
ance test of the craft's twin rocket
engines. And it went exactly ac-
cording to plan: drop at 8:58
A.M. from a B52 Bomber at 48,000
feet, the zooming burst of speed,
landing at 9:08.
Walker said that with a little
more fuel he probably could have
pushed the 50-foot, stub-winged
black dart to more than 2,200
Other X15's, with rocket engines
three times more powerful, are
expected later this year to fly
4,000 M.P.H. to altitudes of 50 to
100 miles.
The next test of the low-
powered X15 is scheduled for next
week, when Air Force Maj. Bob
White will make an altitude run
expected to reach 135,000 feet,
highest ever for a human.
Walker had hit between 2,074
and 2.148 m.p.h. on a previous
flight, but his exact speed could
not be determined because of in-
strument error. Yesterday's flight
was checked by more precise in-

to bring about an atmosphere
"that will guarantee the Domini-
can people the opportunity to elect
officials of their choice." He re-
peated a Trujillo pledge of free
city and provincial elections next
Dec. 15 and a fair presidential
election in August 1962, when his
own terms runs out. He promised
to push agrarian reform started by
the generalissimo.
Rafael Trujillo only this week
announced he was leaving his of-
fice in the national palace there
and withdrawing to his country
estate. He had previously given up
the jobs of head of the Dominican
Party and chief of the armed
Government sources said he will
go to New York before the assem-
bly begins its three-month 15th
annual session Sept. 20. They said
he is to head the Dominican dele-
gation because the assembly will
deal with questions of vital im-
portance to Latin America's future.
He headed it once before, in early
1953, after turning over the presi-
dency to his brother.

Rocket Plans
ral Government yesterday an-
nounced a million-dollar settle-
ment for infringing the patents
of Rocket Pioneer Robert H. God-
dard, who died in 1945 without
seeing the giant rockets he fore-
told and made possible.
The money will go to the Daniel
and Florence Guggenheim Foun-
dation in New York, a non-profit
organization which financed most
of the inventor's research between
1930 and 1941.
The settlement gives the gov-
ernment the right to use more
than 200 of Goddard's patents on
basic inventions in rockets and
guided missiles. But the agree-
ment, for reasons of simplicity,
dealt specifically with two patents.
The government acknowledged
infringement of these two patents
on the liquidpropellant engines
used in all the first of the large
rockets-the Air Force Atlas and
Thor, the Army Jupiter and Red-
stone and the Navy 'Vanguard.
Under the agreement the Air
Force will pay $765,000, the Army
$125,000 and the Navy $10,000.
The remaining $100,00 will be
paid by the National Aeronautics
and Space Administration..
The inventor's widow, Mrs.
Esther C. Goddard, Worcester,
Mass., also signed a settlement,
which transfers her rights to the
Mrs. Goddard agreed to trans-
fer her rights for a consideration.

disclosed but her attorneys said

Mrs. Goddard was reported
traveling in Euj ope and was un-
available for comment. The Gug-
genheim Foundation also declined
to discuss the settlement.
Goddard, generally recognized as
the father of modern rocketry,
started active research in rockets
in 1914, while teaching at Clark
University at Worcester.

WASHINGTON (A--The nited
States again denounced Russia
yesterday for shooting down an
American RB47 and demanded
immediate release from Jail of two
surviving airmen.
At the same time, top admin-
istration officials reported Nikita
S. Khrushchev would be given the
"deepfreeze treatment" in event
the Soviet Premier makes a sur-
prise visit to the United Nations
next month.
The American attitude was made
known in the wake of unconfirmed
New York, reports Khrushchev has
notified Mexico he will visit there
about mid-September.
No Visit Planned
The possible Khrushchev trip to
the Western Hemisphere set Of-
ficials to checking intensively but
Mexican authorities were reported
to have assured them no such visit
is planned or desired.
While the Maj. Willard Palm,
pilot of the ill-fated RB47, was be-
ing buried with full military hon.
ors in Arlington National Ceme-
tery, the State Department fired
another strongly worded protest
to Moscow, rejecting Russia's claim
that the downed plane violated So-
viet air space.
Renewing its claim that the
plane never came closer than 30
miles to Soviet territory, the State
Department labeled as incompre-
hensible Russia's refusal to allow
an impartial on-the-spot investi-
gation by the United Nations.
Russia Objects
Russia has objected to an on-
the-spot investigation of the inci
dent on the grounds It would be
"a maneuver designed to distract
world attention from what.it called
