Soviets Buzz Planes
As Embassies Object
WASHINGTON (M)-The West-
ern Allies warned Russia yesterday
she is "running grave risks" in
buzzing Berlinhair corridors.
They held the Soviets "responsi-
ble for the consequences of any
incidents which might occur."
United States authorities said
alerting measures have been taken
for the safety of Allied aircraft
flying the Berlin corridors in view
of the buzzing by Soviet jets.
While specific measures were
not disclosed, it was understood
that one measure is to keep fight-
er craft ready to fly into the cor-
ridors at a moment's notice should
an Allied plane get into trouble.
The Western warning was con-
tained in identical protest notes
from the United States, Britain
and France, delivered in Moscow
yesterday. The text was made pub-
lic by 'the State Department.
The protests specifically com-
plained of three instances Wed-
nesday in which, the Western
notes said, Soviet jets "seriously
threatened by close approach" Al-
lied transports flying from West
Germany along the 20-mile-wide
air lanes linking West Germany
with Communist-surrounded West
Berlin.

pressed belief Russian interfer-
ence in the air lanes was aimed
at further unsettling West Ber-
liners and testing Western reac-
tion.

MOISE TSHOMBE
... muzzled

Scuttle Visit
By Tshombe
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON - The annual
rally sponsored by the Young
Americans for Freedom seems to
be falling apart this year.
The State Department yester-
day ruled out any visit by Katanga
President Moise Tshombe, who
was to have been a featured speak-
er.
"We believe that a visit to the
United States by Tshombe at this
time would interrupt and jeopar-
dize progress toward the common
objectives," Press Officer Joseph
W. Reap told a news conference.
The Congolese central, govern-
ment of Prime Minister Cyrille
Adoula shares this view; Reap said.
His announcement marked the
end of weeks of speculation about
Tshombe's intention to come to
the. United States and attend the
rally at New York's Madison
Square Garden early next month.
YAF was. forced to withdraw a
,similar invitation extended-to Maj.
Gen. Edwin A. Walker, a Demo-
cratic candidate for the Texas
governorship, when Sen. Barry
Goldwater (R-Ariz) refused to ap-
pear on the same platform with
him for political reasons.
Sen. Thomas Dodd (D-Conn),
also scheduled to appear, withdrew
Monday, calling the rally "too po-
litical." He was replaced by Sen.
J. Strom Thurmond (D-SC).

Finns Re-elect
Kekkonent
To Presidency,
HELSINGFORS () - Finnish
President Urho Kekkonen, a tight-
rope artist in maintaining friend-
ly relations with the Soviet Union
and preserving Finnish democra-
cy, won overwhelming re-election
to a second six-year term yester-
day.
The most serious threat to his
reelection, former Justice Minis-
ter Olavi Honka, withdrew from
the race last November in the
midst of a crisis created by Soviet
demands for military consultations
with Finland.
The presidential election was
virtually settled Jan. 15 when elec-
tors pledged to Kekkonen won 145
of the 300 seats in the electoral
college.
