Soviets Say U.S. Flights
Violated Test Ban Treaty



Testif y

GENEVA ()-The Soviet Union
charged yesterday that U.S. nu-
clear bomber flights violated the
1963 partial test ban treaty.
The United States dismissed the
charge as "false and mere pro-
paganda." r
Representatives of the two lead-
ing nuclear powers at the 17-
nation conference clashed when
a detailed nuclear nonproliferation
treaty came up for discussion.

Soviet delegate Semyon K.
Tsarapkin declared the crash of
an American nuclear bomber in
Spain last month was proof of
"a flagrant violation of interna-
tional law and of the 1963 Mos-
cow treaty." The treaty bans all
but underground nuclear tests.
Tsarapkin was reading from a
memorandum which Soviet For-
eign Minister Andrei A. Gromyko

yesterday a Communist picture of
"a determined United States back

for American success in the Viet-
Snamese war.

A number of other members of
the committee, which resumed its
public hearings Wednesday on
U.S. involvement in the Viet Nam
war, are expected to back Ful-
bright's move.
Public Pressures
However, unless public pressures
build up to a point at which the
administration concludes that it
would be prudent to comply, there
is no way that the committee can
compel a vice-president's appear-
ance-either in public session or
behind closed doors.

No Word of Peace
In Johnson Speech

handed to U.S. Ambassador Foy
Kohler on Wednesday.
The memorandum said the
flight violated the Moscow treaty
since "it is common knowledge
that the most important purpose
of this treaty was to prevent ra-
dioactive contamination of the
atmosphere, outer space and
"The southern coast of Spain
and adjacent sea areas have been
radioactively contaminated by
American nuclear weapons," the
memorandum asserted.
No Radioactivity
U.S. authorities said the crash
of the bomber produced no harm-
ful radioactivity.
When it came his turn to speak,
chief U.S. delegate William C.
Foster dismissed the Soviet
"One is led to wonder," he said,
"what purpose lies beyond the
repetitious and false allegations
about this incident and why the
Soviet delegate asked to be the

government by the Soviet gov-
"Presumably, if the Soviet gov-
ernment had other than propa-
ganda in mind it would have
awaited a reply through diploma-
tic channels."

Johnson, in his latest defense of
administration Viet Nam policies,
at the convention of the American
Association of School Administra-
tors, has talked of eventual mili-
tary victory and, perhaps pointed-
ly, avoided all references to hopes
for a peaceful solution.
At no time during his discussion
of Viet Nam, interrupted several
times by applause, did Johnson use
the word "peace." Neither did he
mention any hope for a negotiated
This seemed significant inas-
much as all the presidential
statements on the subjects in re-
cent months have coupled af-
firmations of American determina-
tion on the military front with
expressions of hope for a peaceful
Obvious Response
In an obvious response to critics
who claim this country's stake in
Southeast Asia does not warrant
war, Johnson said he came away
from his Honolulu conference with
leaders of South Viet Nam "con-
vinced that we cannot raise a
double standard to the world."
He }said: "We cannot hold free-
dom less dear in Asia than in
Europe or be less willing to sacri-
fice for men whose skin is a dif-
ferent color."
Adding that political and social
reforms in South Viet Nam must

go hand in hand with military
action, Johnson asserted, "in other
words, while winning a war we
must get at the defects that
caused it."
Continuing Misery
At another point, he said that
"unless this job is done a military
victory in South Viet Nam would
be no victory at all-only a brief
delay until the aggressor returns
to feed on the continuing misery
of the people."
Johnson said those who hate
war should not ignore the "stra-
tegy of terror" of the Viet Cong.

Unions Reject Wirtz Plan for
Federal Contract Settlement







construction unions, under White
House fire for "inflationary" wage
increases, rejected yesterday a
federal proposal aimed at limiting
wage demands.
President C. J. Haggerty of the'
AFL-CIO Construction and Build-
ing Trades Department said the
plan proposed secretly several
weeks ago by Secretary of Labor
W. Willard Wirtz was unanimously

slapped down by the presidents of
the 18 unions of the department,
representing some 3.5 million
"We unanimously agree that the
plan supported by Wirtz is un-
workable and we therefore are
unable to accept it," the union
chiefs said in a statement.

NEW DELHI-U.S. Vice-Presi-

yesterday that India has been
granted a $100-million loan to buy

This is the first U.S. loan to
India since Washington cut off

Haggerty, who earlier charged
the government with using racial
discrimination proceedings against
the unions as a means of pressure
on the wage proposal, said he did
not know whether the unions could
expect further retaliation from
the administration.
"We don't think retaliation is
justified," Haggerty said.
Special Criticism
The Johnson administration, in-
creasingly concerned about infla-
tion, had singled out the construc-
tion industry for special criticism
of excessive wage and price in-
Haggerty said it was possible
that rejection of the plan could
cause stronger consideration by
the White House of mandatory
wage-price controls.
Haggerty and the 18 construc-
tion union presidents said they
would go along with such extra-
ordinary federal controls if they
were applied across the board to
wages, prices and profits.
But they said they could not go
along with a wage control pro-
posal applied only to them.
Although the Wirtz proposal did
not specifically mention compul-
sory settlements, limiting wage
demands, Haggerty said it would
have had that effect.
