U.S. Considers
Revival Attempt
SOf Geneva Talks

WASHINGTON (A')-Despite a
rebuff from Soviet Premier Nikita
S. Khrushchev, the State Depart-
ment indicated yesterday the Unit-
ed States and British ambassadors
may see him again in an effort to
revive the stalled Geneva test-ban
Hodgs Hits
Steel Ethics
WASHINGTON M '-Secretary
of Commerce Luther H. Hodges,
critically examining ethics in the
business world, accuses United
States Steel's Roger M. Blough of
dishonest silence in the period
leading up to the steel price crisis
of 1962.
Hodges scrutinizes the behavior
of big steel in one chapter of his
new book, "The Business Con-
science," to be published today
From his official position, Hod-
ges was intimately associated with
the chain of events last April when
President John F. Kennedy's vio-
lent reproach and government
maneuvers forced steel companies
to cancel price increases three days
after announcing them.
Completely Wrong
Recalling the incident, Hodges
says top officials of United States
Steel were "completely wrong" in
failing to suggest during negotia-
tions with the United Steelworkers
that they might hike prices.
"To put it bluntly," he writes,
"they mislead the President and
the public by withholding infor-
mation or leaving the impression
they were going along with the
anti-inflation program outlined by
the President."
Hodges chides Blough, board
chairman of United States Steel,
for remaining silent through "re-
peated opportunities" to tell Ken-
nedy or anyone else that a price
increase would follow even a mod-
est settlement with the union;
Dishonest Silence
"In my judgment, this silence
was not honest," Hodges says. He
contends Blough must have known
the -government took an interest
in the negotiations because it
wanted to hold the price line. He
"By keeping silent, Blough mis-
lead the government so that, in
effect, the steel industry could
reap the benefits of official ef-
forts to moderate the union's con-
tract demands."
Framing his allegations in a
question, Hodges refers to steel
industry leaders and asks: "Did
they fail to take into consideration
the, national interest as opposed
to their narrow, selfish interest?"

In a 90-minute session with the
ambassadors in Moscow Wednes-
day, Khrushchev spurned a propo-
sal to intensify and speed up the
nuclear test-ban negotiations.
Khrushchev was reported to
have talked in tough terms to the
two envoys and to have threaten-
ed to withdraw his limited offer
to allow two or three on-site in-
spections inside Russia to enforce
a test-ban treaty.
A Washington interpretation of
the report from United States Am-
bassador Foy Kohler on the Krem-
lin session was that while Khrush-
chev took a hard line, he did not
completely" and finally slam the
door on a test-ban pact.
One reason for a feeling here
that serious negotiations have not
been definitely foreclosed is that
Khrushchev has yet to answer in
writing the joint letter from Presi-
dent John F. Kennedy and British
Prime Minister Harold Macmillan
which was presented to the Soviet
boss by the two ambassadors Wed-
State Department press officer
Lincoln White said "I assume the
ambassadors will meet with
Khrushchev or somebody else on
this subject in the future."
White did not deny that the
United States is disappointed by
Khrushchev's position in his dis-
cussion with the ambassadors.
After getting Kohler's prelimi-
nary report Wednesday, Kennedy
said he is "not sanguine" over
prospects for a test ban. He term-
ed the United States-British ap-
peal part of a determined effort
to "prevent failure from coming
upon us this spring."
Razak Affirms
In U.S. Help,
WASHINGTON (M -)- Malaya's
Deputy Prime Minister Tun Abdul
Razak said, yesterday he is sure
the United States "will not leave
us alone unaided" in building the
new Malaysia Federation in the
face of the Communist challenge.
He made the statement in a
speech prepared for the National
Press Club after talks with Presi-
dent John F. Kennedy, Secretary
of State Dean Rtusk, Secretary of
Defense Robert S. McNamara and
other top officials.
Razak, who is also Minister of
Defense, pulled no punches in
describing the challenges to the
security of the federation which
will link Singapore and three
Borneo territories of Brunei, Sar-
awak and North Borneo to Malaya
after Britain severs colonial ties
in the territories this summer.

SEGREGATIONIST--Atty. Gen. Robert F. Kennedy greeted a
Negro woman with a handshake yesterday on the steps of the
Alabama capitol. The encounter took place following a con-
ference between the attorney general and segregationist Gov.
George Wallace.

Jobless Aid
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON-A special com-
mittee recommended to President
John F. Kennedy a broad cam-
paign by federal, state and local
governments to find jobs for the
rising number of unemployed
Foremost among the 33-man
committee's 15 recommendations
was one urging more generous
legislation than the administra-
tion's youth employment oppor-
tunities measure.
It was also recommended that
state governors and mayors of
each city initiate a commission on
youth affairs seeing to it that
aggressive programs are spon-
sored to provide job and training
They suggested that employers
-including industryand public
agencies and unions-should re-
examine their hiring, training and
promotion, policies to see how they
can better employ young people.
Unions, too, should revise appren-
tice programs of young people into
beginning jobs.
School boards should begin in-
tensive programs to bring inade-
quately educated youths up to
minimum standards of employ-
ability by "crash programs," for
instance to provide basic reading,
writing and arithmetic skills.
The commission reported that
one out of every nine teenagers
who is out of school is also out of
a job. And the prognosis is for a
worsening situation.

But, although both the governor
and the President's brother said
they had a "pleasant, courteous"
visit, neither was willing to give
ground in their opposite views on
segregation and states rights.

of parading without a permit

The Labor Department reported
yesterday its Consumers Price In-

To End Talks
KARACHI (P)-Pakistan is de-
termined that its negotiations with
India on Kashmir must be wound
up by the end of May, an authori-
tative Pakistani source said yes-
Sessions conducted intermittent-
ly since last December have prov-
ed fruitless.
Delegates of the two nations
closed their fifth round of talks
about the future of the border
state, under dispute for 16 years,
and agreed to meet again in New
Delhi May 15.
Pakistani Foreign Minister Zul-
fikar Ali Bhutto and Indian Rail-
ways Minister Swaran Singh are
the chief negotiators.
It was indicated Pakistan agreed
to continue only to allow time for
the United States and Britain to
work behind the scenes for a solu-
tion. The efforts to end the feud
were promoted by the Western
powers, which are funneling mil-
lions of dollars worth of arms to
India for defense against Red
Bhutto said recently there
should not be any more negotia-
tions unless substantial progress
was made in the session that be-
gan here Monday. Sources in both
delegations agreed there had been
no progress.
Pakistan is now willing to go on
until the end of May, according
to the authoritative Pakistani
source, to allow United States
Secretary of State Dean Rusk and
British Commonwealth Relations
Secretary Duncan Sandys to try
to end the deadlock. They are
scheduled to come here next week
for a meeting of the Central
Treaty Organization and later go
to New Delhi.

WASHINGTON-The nation'sI
schools are reported facing one oft
the toughest years in history as1
far as state funds for education
are concerned.s
Educators here, in close touchs
with the situation, feel many pub-t
lic school systems will have dif-
ficulty in even holding their own.t
A survey indicates that in 21v
states schools will be fortunate if
they receive enough funds to coverr
the minimum increase in enroll-t
ments and maintain present ef-
Only about eight states can
count on an improvement in ap-
propriations that will enable them
to take care of enrollment expan-
Few Fundsc
In some 29 states, schools will1
have barely enough funds to al-i
leviate overcrowding to some ex-
tent or to eliminate double ses-
sions and step up teacher recruit-
Eighteen states are expected to
lose - ground during the coming
year. At least 15 of those are ex-
pected to experience more over-
srowding, more double sessions and
be forced to employ more sub-
standard teachers.
Despite this actual state of af-
fairs, there seems to be an un-
fortunateeimpression among many
school administrators and even
teachers that "We are over the
hump." Educators here say this
"just isn't true."
California Case
As an example, the case of Cali-
fornia is cited. There's no ques-
tion that California has done a
tremendous job at both the state
and local level with its schools,

Meet the boy today at 2 p.m.

but the state has tremendous pop-
ulation pressures and they are not
In other areas, there has been
such an influx of population that
schools cannot be built fast enough
to keep up with it. Added to this
problem is the fact that many of
the newcomers are from areas
with substandard school systems.
It is thus necessary to furnish
remedial classes, and a substan-
tial part of the school budget has
had to be devoted to providing
summer catch-up sessions.
Close Ear
Educators who have had their
ear close to the grassroots are told
that taxpayer resistance is in-
creasing, particularly at the local
level. In line with this resistance,
is a feeling that the federal gov-

Report Schools in Difficulty

ernment should do something to
relieve local pressures.
Many authorities have indicated
they thought local tax relief pref-
erable to a federal tax cut, through
an increase in federal funds to
the states--in other words through
federal aid to education.
Educators say there is consider-
able support throughout the coun-
try for President John F. Ken-
nedy's so-called comprehensive
education bill, covering elemen-
tary, secondary, vocational college
and adult education.
A special committee to study
the subject of this nation's edu-
cation was set up last November
and has just recently submitted
its report to President Kennedy
outlining the above information.
