Development Claims

For Systems Treaty
MOSCOW (A)-Soviet Military
leaders yesterday claimed that this
country has developed an antibal-
listic missile system that will pro-
tect it from enemy attacks.
The boasts were accompanied by
further indications that the Krem-
lin has ho interest in President
Johnson's proposed U.S.-Soviet
agreement to stop development of
antiballistic missile-ABM-sys-
tems.
Kurochkin
Gen. Pavel G. Kurochkin, head
of the Fruze Military Academy,
said that missiles fired at the So-
viet Union would never reach their
targets.,
"Detecting missiles in time and
destroying them in flight is no
problem," Kurochkin said in an-
swering questions about the Soviet
ABM system.
His remarks at a news confer-
ence and Batitsky's interview with
the official Soviet news agency
Tass were in anticipation of
Thursday celebration of the 49th
anniversary of the Soviet army
and navy.
They represented an apparent
new confidence about the capacity
of this country to defend itself
against missiles armed with nu-
clear warheads.
Washington
The arguments used by Wash-
ington has been that the systems
would mean wasting billions of
dollars on both sides, since despite
them intercontinental ballistic
missiles could still cause cata-
strophic destruction.
Premier Alexei N. Kosygin 10,
days ago told a London news con-
ference that the Soviet ABM sys-
tem is "designed not to kill peo-
ple but to preserve human lives.;
I believe that defense .systems,
which prevent attack, are not the
cause of the arms race, but con-
stitute a factor preventing the
death of people."
Kosygin did not explicity reject
the Johnson proposal.
The claim by the generals that
enemy missiles would not reach
their targets was not limited in
any way.

Emphasizing h i s displeasure
with the two New Orleans news-
papers, he barred their reporters
from the news conference, held
at a local motel.
Reactions were drawn from sev-
eral sources.
In Washington, Sen. Thomas
J. Dodd, D-Conn., called for the
Warren Commission to reopen its
investigation of the assassination
to determine if Lee Harvey Os-
wald had Communist conspirators.
Dodd, a member of the Senate
Security, subcommittee, said he
s'aid he is impressed that Garrison
"feels confident' eno'ugh to speak
in such positive terms of his
findings."
Warren Commission
Garrison has said he has no in-
tention of turning his information
over to the Warren Commission
or other federal agencies. He said
he will show the conspiracy was
plotted in New Orleans, where Os-
wald lived during the summer of
1963.
"The Warren report is unsuc-

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (JP)-The
National Student Association has
voted to return to the Central, In-
telligence 'Agency the unused por-
tion of a financial grant, an NSA
representative says.
Eric Vanloon, a University of
North Carolina student who is
chairman of the NSA's legal and!
financial committee, said Sunday
the committee would send to the
Youth and Student Affairs Found-
ation, "all that's left of a $26,000
grant."
All ties between the CIA and.
the NSA have been "completely
severed," Vanloon said.
It is not known exactly how
much of the grant remains, Vanloon
said, but he explained, "The grant
was for a year, and five or six
months now have elapsed. I would
therefore guess that about half of
the $26,000 has been spent."

Vanloon, who returned Sunday
from a six-day emergency session
in Washington, denied he had any
knowledge of the CIA's involve-
ment with the NSA.
Officers
"Very few of the NSA members
knew of the ties with the CIA,"
Vanloon said. "In the past only
the president and perhaps one or
two others have known that the
CIA was supplying the NSA with
funds."
Meanwhile Secretary of Welfare
John W. Gardner commenting on
the situation yesterday, said it
"was as mistake" for the Central
Intelligence Agency to entangle
itself in activities close to the field
of education.

Sukarno Reported Preparing Surrender

Rescue teams pulled 22 bodies yes-

that collapsed without warning in

persons were missing, and feared
dead in the debris.

JAKARTA, Indonesia (P) - Au-
thoratative military sources said
last night President Sukarno was
prepared to surrender his full pre-
sidential powers shortly to Gen.
Suharto, the Indonesian strong
man, in exchange for not being
dismissed by Congress.
Sukarno was slated to meet Su-
harto and other military com-
manders this morning, and bar-
ring any last-minute hitch an of-
ficial announcement is expected
soon thereafter, the sources said.
Army Officials
Two high army command offi-
cials made separate calls on Su-
karno. They were reported to have
told him that if he resisted until
Congress meets next month he
faces the prospect of an investiga-
tion of alleged links with the
Communists.
The sources said the military
told Sukarno he could hand over
his powers and remain president

in name only and thus avoid con-
gressional action.
Diplomatic sources said Sukarno
agreed to this course of action
several weeks ago but was persu-
aded -by pro-Sukarno Nationalist
party leaders not to make the an-
nouncement at the time.
Final Bargaining
Suharto met Sunday with Su-
karno, who reportedly flourished

letters from all over the country
professing support for him. This
appeared to be a final bargaining
move by the president.
Sukarno, 65, has dominated his
huge Southeast Asian nation for
25 years. But in late years he used
the Communist party to balance
his own position between the pow-
erful Communists and an anti-
Communist party.
