Red China Rebuffs Kennedy,

WASHINGTON () -Rebuffed
Min his first move to relax tensions
with Red China, President John
F. Kennedy said yesterday his
hopes are dimmed, but he declar-
ed America will not .surrender to
get better relations with Peiping.
Kennedy spoke at a news con-
freence shortly after the State
Department reported' Communist
China had spurned the Kennedy
administration's initial attempt to
narrow the bitter gulf between
the two countries.
At a meeting of ambassadors in
Warsaw Tuesday, the department
reported, the Chinese Reds quash-
ed a fresh United States proposal
for an exchange of newsmen by
demanding as "a condition that
this country abandon Chiang Kai-
shek's Nationalist regime on For-
Te Pleas for RFE
The President opened his news
conference with a plea that Amer-
icans contribute generously to the
financing of Radio Free Europe.
He said this private enterprise

brings "a beacon of light into
countries'to which millions of us
are tied by kinship and whose
hopes for freedom all of us must
Kennedy also announced that
Swedish Prime Minister Tage Er-
lander will make an informal visit
to this country for 10 days start-
ing. March 28. Kennedy and Er-
Lander plan to confer here the
next day. The prime minister will
then visit other sections of the
United States.
Ease Laos Tension
Kennedy said he still is hope-
ful that there can be an easing
of tension in Laos-an easing
which will lead eventually to a
stable and independent govern-
ment there.
He called these very difficult
goals to achieve, "but we are go-
ing to continue and we are now
continuing to take every step that
we can to achieve that goal."
The President stressed that ad-
ministration programs which have

been submitted to Congress in
such fields as unemployment re-
lief, education aid, and medical
care all represent attemptsn"to
provide for a viable economy,
which I think is essential for the
security of the United States, and
for the security of those countries
which are dependent upon it."=
Another purpose, he added, is' to
provide equality of opportunity to
the extent that we can for all
U.S. Claims
Much Support
On UN Agenda
United States claimed yesterday
to have found considerable inter-
est and support in a drive to have
the General Assembly drop dis-
armament and most other sub-
jects from the agenda of its day-
old resumed session,
A United States delegation
spokesman made the claim be-
fore correspondents. But he in-
dicated that the Soviet Union was
still holding out for a full debate
on disarmament.
The spokesman expressed belief
that if all cold-war and non-es-
sential items could be knocked out
of the 39-item agenda, the As-
sembly could wind up by the end
of, March-or in about three and
a half weeks.

Would Give
Public Units
Federal Aid
Private School Loans
Seen Unconstitutional
WASHINGTON (0 - President
John F. Kennedy and Secretary of
Welfare Abraham A. Ribicoff, in
seperate forums, urged Congress
yesterday not to entangle the ad-
ministration's $2.3 billion school
aid program in arguments over in-
tegration and aid to parochial
Kennedy, in making his plea at
a news conference, said that he:
considers loans, as well as grants,
to parochial and other private
schools unconstitutional.
F Room For IDebate'
But he said "There is obviously
room for debate about loans,"
since the question hasn't been
tested in the courts. And if Con-
gress wants to consider voting
loans to private schools, Kennedy
said; "Then'I am hopeful that it
will be considered as a separate.
Meanwhile, Kennedy said, "I am
hopeful that while consideration is
being given, we will move ahead
with the grant program" for the
public schools.
News Conference
The President had said at his
news conference last week that
bringing private schools into the
grants program would be clearly
unconstitutional. Since then,
spokesmen for the Roman Cath-
olic Church have opened a fight
to tie long-term, low-interest
loans for parochial schools into
the program.
Kennedy declined to indicate
whether he would veto any sepa-
rate legislation to provide private
loans for private schools, but add-
ed "it is very clear about what my
view is of grants and loansacross
the board to non-public schools."
