U.S., Britain Requ(
To Support A-Ban

Two PowersI
Want Treaty
On Testing
Ask New Resolution
Backing Control Plan,
United States and Britain pro-
posed yesterday that the United
Nations General Assembly throw
its weight behind President John
F. Kennedy's call on Russia to
resume talks on a nuclear test
ban treaty.
The two Western powers in-
troduced a resolution asking As-
sembly endorsement of the need,
for completing action on a treaty
providing adequate controls to
prevent cheating.
It was the latest development
in an East-West race to present
conflicting disarmament proposals
to the 100-nation Assembly.
Wednesday the Soviet Union
brought in its detailed stand -
including a demand that the test
issue be submerged in over-all
disarmament talks.
Initial Debate
Opening debate on the nuclear
test ban issue will take place in
two weeks in the Assembly's main
political committee, where the
United States and Britain will ask
for priority.
The two-power resolution would
have the Assembly declare the
urgent necessity for reaching
agreement prohibiting all nuclear
weapons tests under control.
List Objectives
Such an agreement would be a
first step toward reversing the
dangerous burdensome arms race,
inhibit the spread of nuclear
weapons to other countries, con-
tribute to the reduction of inter-
national tension and eliminate
health hazards associated with
tests, the resolution declares.
It urges control machinery that
would avoid self-inspection and
not be subject to the sort of veto
envisioned in Soviet demands for
the three-headed supervisory ma-
chinery representing Western,
Communist and neutral interests.
The resolution would have the
participants in the treaty nego-
tiations report to the UN dis-
armament commission by next
March of their progress.

Put Lookouts on Duty
In West Coast Strike
SAN FRANCISCO (M--Deck officers set up lookouts yesterday
on the San Francisco waterfront but put off until today sending out
pickets in a strike that could tie up West Coast ports from Los Angeles
to Seattle.
The lookouts watched the unloading of perishable cargoes. A
union spokesman said no deck officers were signing on for trips, and
should any ship be moved the pickets would go out immediately.
The deck officers and four other maritime unions voted to strike
June 16 but a Taft-Hartley injunction held that up for 80 days dur-
ing which all but the deck officers
settled their differences. I T r

Wednesday the deck officers,
whose West Coast membership to-
tals 650, voted 404-24 at West
Coast ports to reject an offer by
the Pacific Maritime Association
for, a four-year contract
The spokesman said the dispute
over a wage contract would pre-
vent sailing of the Matson liner
Lurline for Honolulu Friday and
the American President Lines'
President Cleveland Saturday on a
Pacific cruise, but he said the
President Polk had been cleared
to start on around-the-world voy-
age Saturday because she was car-
rying military cargo.
East Germans
Condemn Lift
BERLIN (P) - The East German
Foreign Ministry last night called
the lifting of seven refugees from
Steinstuecken by United States
Army helicopters an "act of or-
ganized kidnaping" and a violation
of East German "air sovereignty."
The spokesman asserted that
"the people who initiated this will
have to bear full responsibility for
such provocation."
A spokesman for the United
States mission in Berlin said
merely "we do have the right to
fly over territory within Berlin
air space and this was well within

ATLANTA (M - Several lunch
counters and restaurants in At-
lanta stores were integrated yes-
terday, six months after a truce
was reached between merchants
and Negro student sit-in leaders.
No incidents were reported.
Four young Negro women, one
the sister of the first Negro stu-
dent admitted to Georgia Tech,
were seated for lunch in the tea
room of Rich's, the city's largest
department store.
Simultaneously, Negroes were
served at Davison's, another de-
partment store, and at the lunch
counters of four variety stores.
A total of 182 Negro and white
demonstrators were arrested in
this city last spring when they
sought to break the color bars at
store eating facilities.
