In the Bahamas, Glenn, pro-
nounced by doctors to be in ex-a
cellent condition, said he "felt no
discomfort" from being weightless
for four and one half hours in{

He declined to give details of his
experiences yet, saying "we are
still talking over what happened
on the flight," and it is too early
to make full assessments.
He did report that during flight
he was able to detect cities on
earth, observed a bright band of
light over the horizon at sunset
and watched mysterious "fire-
flies" flash by his capsule win-
dow at dawn.

significance may overshadow its
scientific implications.
Western experts said the United

Rebels Give
Authorities Prepare
For More Violence
By The Associated Press
PARIS-President Charles de
Gaulle's government last night
approved a cease-fire agreement
aimed at ending the bloody seven-
year war in Algeria and granting
independence to the vast North
African territory.
The next move is up to the Al-
gerian Rebel National Liberation
Front council, which meets today
in Tripoli. According to highly
placed sources, a preliminary
agreement was worked out Tues-
day between French and rebel ne-
gotiators. However, four fifths of
the council members must approve
the proposal.
Besides the cease-fire, which
may be instituted by Sunday, the
plan endorses conditions for Al-
geria's eventual self-determina-
A cabinet spokesman said the
agreement also includes guaran-
tees for the European minority in
Algeria. This had been a major
stumblinghb lo c k in previous
French-rebel discussions and is a
key factor in the Algerian Euro-
pean population's attitude toward
any accord with the rebels.
The French cabinet met for
slightly more than five hours, one
of its longest sessions since Charles
de Gaulle became president.
Meanwhile, French military au-
thorities in Algeria completed last
minute plans to cope with any
more violence that might be trig-
gered by a cease-fire order.
Authorities said the Algerian
rebels were distributing tracts in
the city of Algiers urging the half
million Moslem residents to avoid
clashes with Europeans and to
"Demonstrate your joy within your
own areas."
But the French continued to
have trouble with the Secret Ar-
my Organization, the group which
has pledged a last-ditch wave of
violence to keep Algeria French
and out of the hands of the
country's nine million Moslems.
For the first time, French troops
clashed openly with members of
the secret army in field combat
yesterday, capturing a 13-man
unit after a brief skirmish 40
miles west of Algiers.
Hart Supports
Fishery Lab
Sen. Philip A. Hart (D-Mich)
has recommended favorable con-
siderations for a $1,448,000 bill to
build a new fishery biological lab-
oratory at the University.
Presently an item in the Bureau
of Fisheries budget, the proposal
will soon be considered by the
House Interior Appropriations
The bill would provide a new
two-story building to house 65 bu-
reau employes for biological and
technological research, exploratory
fishing and market development.
Current bureau activities are
housed with the Institute of Fish-
eries Research, which the Uni-
versity plans to raze.

Fanfani Set
To Govern
New Regime
ROME (T)-Italy was presented
last night with its most left-wing
government in 15 years.
But Premier-designate Amintore
Fanfani declared the nation would
stand firmly behind its commit-
ments to the West.
The 24-member cabinet will be
sworn in today.
Antonio Segni was retained as
foreign minister and Giulio An-
dreotti was kept as minister of
defense. Both are staunch sup-
porters of the North Atlantic
Treaty Organization
The list of ministers included
19 Christian Democrats, counting
Fanfani, Segni and Andreotti.
Three posts went to the Demo-
cratic Socialists and two to the
The coalition will lack a work-
ing majority in Parliament but
has been promised the voting sup-
port of the so-called leftwing So-
cialist Party headed by Pietro
Nenni, who once formed a united
front with Italy's Communists.
Nennin's Socialists will not be
represented in the cabinet.'
Fanfani unveiled his govern-
ment after 10 days of negotiations
with various party leaders. The
'cabinet is expected to go before
Parliament for a vote of confi-
dence late next week.

House Defeats Plan
For Urban Affairs
WASHINGTON (IP)-President John F. Kennedy's plan to create
a new Department of Urban Affairs was killed in the House by a
massive 264-150 margin yesterday.
The rebuff-which some Democrats hope to make a hot campaign
issue, this fall-was expected. And the 114-vote margin of rejection
for the reorganization plan virtually made certain there will be no
urban affairs chair at the cabinet table this year.
Kennedy immediately expressed regret and predicted an urban
affairs agency eventually would be created.
'Country's Loss'
"I don't think it is so much the administration's loss as it is a loss
for the city and the country," he said. In the voting 111 Democrats,

mostly Southerners, joined 153
Republicans to defeat the plan.
Only 13 Republicans and 137
Democrats voted for it.
The President had announced
earlier he intended to name a
Negro, Robert C. Weaver, to head
the new department. Weaver now
heads the Housing and Home Fi-
nance Agency.
Republican Dilemma
This maneuver put Republicans,
who said they disliked the idea
on principle, in a seeming posi-
tion of opposing a Negro cabinet
member. In rebuttal, they, along
with a solid bloc of Southern
Democrats, accused Kennedy of
injecting racism into a matter
that should be decided on its mer-
A movement seemed to be grow-
ing to put Weaver in the cabinet
anyway, as a replacement for Sec-
retary of Welfare Abraham Rib-
icoff, who plans to run for the
Senate in Connecticut this year.
In the House debate, Rep. Dante
Fascell (D-Fla) led those who fa-
vored the department. He said 70
per cent of the population now
lives in urban areas.
Agriculture Analogy
"If the location of a majority
of the population had a bearing on
the establishment of the Depart-
ment of Agriculture (nearly 100
years ago)," he said, "then the
location of a majority of the popu-
lation should have a bearing to-
day ..."-
Rep. George Meader (R-Mich)
reiterated Republicancharges the
department would be "premature,
unnecessary ... and is contrary to
sound principles of government

Plants Drive
For Voting
ganized labor launched yesterday
an expanded 1962 political drive
aimed at increasing liberal forces
in Congress by getting more work-
ers to register and vote.
Administrators of the AFL-
CIO's Committee on Political Ed-
ucation announced they are start-
ing earlier and with more money
on the fall election campaign to
reverse the historic off-year trend
against the administration in
An AFL-CIO spokesman con-
firmed that unions have decided
to put up $750,000 to finance a
registration drive to get union
members and adult members of
their families qualified to vote.
50 Per Cent More
This is nearly half again as
much as the $580,000 spent in
the 1960 political campaign for
voter registration efforts that the
union chiefs maintained was a
major factor in electing President
John F. Kennedy.
The money goes to pay for pos-
ters, sound trucks, checks of reg-
istration rolls and even baby sit-
In addition to the- registration
drive fund froft union dues Mon-
ey, the labor organizations also
have set a $3 million goal for $1
contributions from union members
toward a separate fund to finance
individual candidates.
Meany Comments.
George Meany, AFL-CIO presi-
dent and national COPE chair-
man, said that "labor's enemies"
are building political war chests
bigger than ever and unions can't
afford to remain spectators in a
"game that vitally affects the
lives and welfare of all."
"Business and industry are:step-
ping up their political campaigns,"
Meany said in a film recorded for
showing to union members across
the country.
"They're getting more money,
and they're lining up more man-
agement people as political work-
ers. We have the manpower, if we
get moving. We even have the
money-not as much, but enough
-if we all contribute."

board quizzing Francis Gary Powers about his capture and imprison-

to question him and to newsmen.
