U.S. Knocks Russia as Talks Di

'Byrd Plant
WASHINGTON (-) - Republi-
cans backed Sen. Harry Flood
Byrd (D-Va) yesterday in a de-
mand for a broad investigation of
the nation's financial position
after President John F. Kennedy
sought a $10-billion boost in the
debt limit.
Byrd, long-time advocate of
economy, said that Kennedy -
through Secretary of the Treasury
Douglas Dillon-has requested an
increase in the debt ceiling to a
record-breaking $308-billion level.
The Virginia senator said he
will go along with a temporary
rise in the present $298-billion
ceiling to $300 billion so the Treas-
ury can pay its current bills.
But Byrd said he will ask the
Senate Finance Committee, which
he heads, to make a sweeping in-
quiry into all phases of federal
financing before it acts on a pro-
posed additional $8-billion boost
for the fiscal year beginning next
July 1.
Senate Minority Leader Everett
M. Dirksen (R-Ill) told a news
conference that "the idea of a full
exploration to see where we stand
is long overdue."
Dirksen said Republicans prob-
ably will go along if it is evident
-as contended by the Kennedy
Administration-that the nation
can't pay its bills by March 1
without an increase in the present
Agreeing, Sen. Frank Carlson
(R-Kan) a member of the Finance
Committee, said he believes Re-
publicans generally will "hesitate
to vote for this large increase un-
less it can -be demonstrated that
it is absolutely necessary."
U.S. Troops
Fly to Europe
In Exercise
FRANKFURT (P)-A huge jet
transport flew a full load of Unit-
ed States troops from the United
States west coast to Europe in little
more than 10 hours yesterday in
the opening phase of "Operation
Long Thrust II."
The operation to airlift 6,000
men from McChord (Wash) Air
Force Base to Rhein-Main Air
Force Base in Germany is widely
viewed as a major test of how
United States forces can be rushed
overseas in an emergency.
The exercise was given added
weight in the light of the explosive
Berlin crisis.
It involves three reinforced
battle groups of the United Statesj

General Parley
To Encompass
Nuclear Ban
By The Associated Press
GENEVA - The United States
accused Russia yesterday of re-
jecting "serious negotiations" on a
nuclear weapons test ban treaty.
It said this caused the United
States and Great Britain to agree
to switch test ban talks to a
general disarmament conference.
"The United States and the
United Kingdom," said a United
States statement, "continue to
view the conclusion of a test ban
treaty as a matter of the highest
The statement was issued by the
State Department after the two
Western powers in a surprise move
expressed their readiness to drop
the present test ban negotiations
in Geneva and throw the whole
issue into an 18-nation disarma-
ment negotiation expected to open
at Geneva on Mar. 14.
The Soviet government formal-
ly proposed the merger of the test
ban and disarmament issues last
summer after the two Western
powers submitted a complete draft
of a test ban treaty. This draft in-
cluded far-reaching Western con-
cessions on the international con-
trol machinery the West feels is
necessary to ensure observance of
an agreement to ban nuclear
weapons tests.
The Soviet government then
withdrew all previous agreements
worked out in more than two years
of patient negotiations in Geneva.
It said in view of the worsening
political situation any type of in-
ternational controls would be tan-
tamount to Western espionage on
Soviet soil.
At the outset of the resumed
negotiations, the United States
and Britain formally rejected the
Soviet demand for an uncontrolled
moratorium on nuclear weapons
Since the Russians advanced the
idea after breaking a previous
voluntary moratorium with a se-
ries of spectacular nuclear tests
last fall, the Western delegates
said their governments could not
accept another moratorium.
To Investigate3
UN Operations
WASHINGTON (')--A full-scale
congressional inquiry into the
controversial role of United Na-
tions forces in The Congo will
open tomorrow, Sen. Albert Gore
(D-Tenn) announced yesterday.
Gore said a Senate Foreign Re-
lations subcommittee on African
affairs which he heads will con-
duct the hearings.
The Congo investigation will
center on the UN operation but
questioning could go into the ad-
ministration's desire to purchase
$100 million in UN bonds to help
finance the UN forces.
And it will give high ranking
officials of the State Department
an opportunity to present the ad-
ministration's reasons for support-
ing the use of UN forces in bring-
ing The Congo's secessionist Ka-
tanga Province back under Pre-
mier Cyrille Adoula's central Leo-
poldville government.
Some senators and representa-
tives in both parties have sharply
criticized this use of force against
Katanga President Moise Tshom-
be, an avowed anti-Communist,
while supporting the central gov-
ernment which, they say, has some

officials who are or have been ex-
treme leftists.

ALGIERS (P)-Grenades, bullets and knives killed nearly 30 more
persons in Algeria yesterday while top officials studied ways of coping
with rising insecurity and ruin.
Police rushed from one scene of violence to another. French
Minister of Algerian Affairs Louis Joxe sped back to Paris to inform
President Charles de Gaulle of the rising disorder.
One possibility was that a state of siege might be clamped on the
largest cities to deal with the terrorism that has reached new peaks,

to withdraw the bulk of French troops from this North African terri-

the Algerians.
