'Serious Setback'
Special To The Daily
liam Fulbright (D-Ark) yesterday
' expressed support for the United
States-USSR consular treaty but
said that he could not predict the
success of the agreement. Ful-
bright joined with former U.S. am-
bassador to Russia George F. Ken-
nan in terming the proposed treaty
a "good thing."
Fulbright is chairman of the
Senate Foreign Relations Commit-
tee which is currently conducting
hearings on the treaty which, if
ratified, would establish Soviet
consulates in several U.S. cities
in exchange for American con-
sulates in Russian cities.
The treaty has come under at-
tack by a number of organiza-
tions including the American Le-
gion and by Federal Bureau of
Investigation director J. Edgar
Hoover who claims that the Soviet
consulates would represent a
threat to America's internal sec-
There is -still "some prejudice
against Russia and all things Com-
munist" in this country, Fulbright
said. This prejudice is a mistake,
he added.
The question, as Fulbright sees
it, is whether the U.S. is "polit-
ically mature enough" to accept
the treaty. Fulbright considers the
treaty itself "not important" but
feels that it has important im-
The treaty raises the question of
whether America is going to make
progress in its relationship with
Russia, Fulbright said. He added
that the objections of Liberty Lob-

opposing ratification of the treaty
could be "serious setbacks" to this

WASHINGTON-The space agency indicated yesterday that
the smoke rather than the fire killed the three Apollo 1 astronauts
last Friday.
"The official death certifactes of the crew members list
the cause of -death as asphyxiation due to smoke inhalation
due to the fire," Dr. Robert C. Seamans Jr., deputy administrator
of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, said.
That was the only reference to the cause of death in the long
report which Seamans made public almost one week to the hour
after the tragedy.

asked repeal of the Connecticut law outlawing use or possession
of the drug was timed to coincide with the trial of three stu-

A FELLOWSHIP IN HONOR of astronaut Edward H. White
II, killed in an Apollo spaceship fire last Friday, was established
yesterday at the University. White, who received a masters de-
gree in astronautical and aeronautical engineering from the
University, died in the fire with astronauts Virgil I. Grissom
and Roger B. Chaffee.
The fellowship will provide funds for students doing gradu-
ate work in aerospace engineering. White and fellow astronaut
James A. McDivitt were both awarded doctorates in astronau-
tical science, a newly created honorary degree, by the University
after their Gemini 4 flight in which White became the first

UAW Execs
Quit AFL
Reuther Resigns from
Position on Council
In Widening Split
WASHINGTON (1') - United
Auto Workers president WalterP,
Reuther quit Friday as AFL-CIO
vice president in the' greatest
leadership rupture since he and
President George Meany forged
the giant labor federation 11 years
But Reuther kept the presidency
of the Industrial Union Depart-
ment embracing nearly half the
AFL-CIO's 13.5 million members,
signaling the possibility of a grow-
ing power struggle.
Meany continued the silence he
had maintained in the face of
Reunther's gradual escalation of
hostilities over Meany's leadership
the"past nine months.
The Auto Workers, the biggest
of. the federation's 129 unions with
1.2 million members, remains in
the AFL-CIO, but the unin's
executive board said it later would
review its relationship and take
"whatever action" it deemed best,
Rigid Policy
Reuther began his attack last
June by criticizing Meany's for-
eign policy as too rigid. Later he
indicated he thought AFL-CIO
policy on organizing new -nem-
bers, solving social problems and
collective bargaining techniques
were old fashioned.
Meany's partisans replied that
Reuther was gunning for Meany's
Meany broke his silence once to
denounce Reuther's foreign policy
criticism as "a damable lie," "con-
temptible" and "slanderous."
Reuther and his brother, Victor,
had accused Meany of undermining
President Johnson's efforts, to
soften tensions with Communist
satellite nations and allowing some
AFL-CIO branches to be used as
a front for the Central Intelligence
Relations then quitely but stead-
ily got worse between Meany, the
gruff ex-plumber from the Bronx,
and the voluble, red-haired
Although he is only one of 27
vice presidents on the AFL-CIO
Executive Council, Reuther is gen-
erally regarded as the No. 2 man
in the labor movement.
The initial reaction of other
labor leaders to Reuther's latest
break was one of surprise.
A meeting of the Executive
Council of the International Asso-
eiation of Machinists in Washing-
ton was interrupted to read the
announcement, and a Machinists'
spokesman said, "Nobody said
anything. They just looked star-
Dues Stopped
Reuther recently stopped pay-
ing dues to the AFL-CIO and
came perilously close to the point
of facing suspension of his union.
although Meany reportedly would
not have enforced this penalty.
Reuther appears to have little
sympathy and almost no support
from other labor leaders in his
tug of war with Meany.
Most union sources believe that
if Reuther makes the final break
and pulls the Auto Workers out
of the AFL-CIO, no other union
will follow.
The Auto Workers' Executive
Board said in Detroit that it had
