Kennedy Decision Due
On Early Resumption
For Berlin Autobahn Link
BERLIN ( ) -- Walter Ulbricht, East German Communist Party
boss, has rejected as "useless speculation" President John F. Ken-
nedy's suggestion of an international administration for Berlin's
110-mile highway to the West.
Ulbricht, in a party meeting speech published yesterday assailed

Automobile manufacturer George
Romney, Constitutional Conven-
tion delegate and head of Citizens
for Michigan, will decide whether
or not to seek the state governor-
ship by February 10, he said yes-
Howard Hallas, Romney's press
agent, said last night that the
delegate has made no final decision
yet because of present responsibili-
ties to the convention and to his
company, American Motors.
Romney refused to run for the
governorship last year because he
wanted to devote full time to im-
proving the state's constitution.
He feels encouraged about the
favorable response of the Legis-
lative Organization Committee
Thursday,, to the principles con-
tained in his reapportionment pro-
posal, Andrew F. Wilson, aide to
Romney on reapportionment, said
The two principles are represen-
tation -in proportion to population
and representation of people in
sparsely settled areas sufficient to
give them the feeling that they
are effectively taking part in gov-
Thus the proposal calls for ap-
portionment in the Senate on the
basis of the factors of "pure head-
count" and "sparsity."
The plan accepts a bi-cameral
legislature on the basis that "the
check and balance arguments out-
weigh" those of unicameralism and
that change to unicameralism
would be too "drastic and un-
proven" to unify the state.
Wilson explained that the plan
is capable of continuous applica-
tion because it provides for future
redistricting on the basis of both
population and sparsity changes
after each census.
for rotation training, in Berlin and
If they think such movements
prepare the way for international-
izing the highway they are very
much mistaken, he said.
President Kennedy, in his in-
terview published in the Soviet
newspaper Izvestia this week, sug-
gested an international adminis-
tration of the 110-mile autobahn.
But Ulbricht said East Germany
is a sovereign nation and the
autobahn belongs to it. East Ger-
many, he added, is not a colony
of the United States.
He declared it was completely
unjustified to say that East Ger-
man officials would control traffic
along the highway any differently
than do the Russians who now
check on Western traffic.
BAL HARBOUR, Fla. (AP) -
AFL-CIO President George Meany
said yesterday the main trouble in
organized labor is not inter-union
warfare but failure on the part
of major unions to engage in all-
out member recruitment.
Meany singled out Walter Reu-
ther, President of the auto workers
and chief spokesman for industrial
unions in their job-rights feud
with building trades, for special
Reuther has been blaming la-
bor's admitted lack of organizing
success upon AFL-CIO internal
bickering. Meany, flatly disagree-
ing, said Reuther's union is fail-
ing todevote resources and effort
to organizing workers about
whom there is no jurisdictional
dispute with other unions.
Meany mentioned the steel-
workers and machinists unions as
among major labor organizations
that are delinquent in member or-
Of 'Missile Killers'
WASHINGTON (IP) -President
John F. Kennedy is now expected
to make an early decision, probably
before the new year, on resuming
test explosions of nuclear weapons
Officials said yesterday he is
pressing his study of the crucial
The present expectation in high
government quarters is that the
President will order atmospheric
explosions primarily to test anti-
. The President first needs to know
whether there is a possibility that
the Russians are close to develop-
ing effective defenses against °.u-
clear rocket attack. Such defenses
would decrease the effectiveness of
United States deterrent power un-
In the second place, the Presi-
dent needs to know whether the
United States can develop a system
of "missile killers" which would
destroy incoming attack weapons
or render them harmless while
they were still far from their target
Officials say this latter informa-
tion can become known through
renewed atmospheric testing, at
least to the extent that scientists
have been able to develop new
ideas and. devices in the missile
defense field during the three-year
But only Kennedy can decide
whether the need for the knowl-
edge is important enough to
United States military power to
justify a step which would bring
wide condemnation from neutral
nations and others.
Pentagon informants spoke to-
day of firm information that the
Russians are making a strong ef-
fort to develop their own anti-
missile system. This, presumably,
was one of the major objectives in
the recent Soviet test series.
Kennedy and Secretary of De-
fense Robert S. McNamara have
already decided, Pentagon sources
said, to ask Congress for money
to start tooling up for production
of the Nike Zeus missile killer.
The purpose of this decision is to
begin the process of tool-making
so that an anti-missile system can
get into production rapidly.
SANTO DOMINGO (A) - Viri-
ato Fiallo, National Civic Union
opposition leader, charged yes-
terday President Joaquin Bala-
guer's government is nothing but
a military dictatorship and a con-
tinuation of the Trupillo regime.
"The Balaguer government is
a continuation of the Trujillo
regime, it is supported by the same
reactionaries Balaguer -has re-
pudiated in the past. said Fiallo.
He added that if the Organiza-
tion of American States lifted its
present sanctions against the Do-
minican Republic to ease Bala-
guer's situation, it would be the
"destruction of the nation."
The President of the chief op-
position movement made the
charge to newsmen at his home as
a general strike showed additional
signs of weakening, after paralyz-
ing the country for four days.
Business in the heart of"Santo
Domingo and at Santiago, where
the opposition is strongest, was
still closed down completely, but
vehicular traffic increased and
many stores re-opened in outlying
Many armed patrols continued
in evidence and there was some
minor scuffling with diehard
strikers, but no injuries and little
of the demonstrations that mark-
ed the first days of the strike.
Balaguer was made president by
Trujillo, but since the Generalis-
simo's assasination May 30 he
has avowed a policy of gradual
liberalization and denocratization.
