In Katanga
battle threatens between United
Nations Negro troops and white
South African mercenaries serving

mander Gen. Sean McKeown said
A battalion of Nigerian UN
troops is serving as a buffer be-
tween Stanleyville rebel invaders
in central Katanga province and
white-officered Katanga army
units which UN officals say may
be massing for a big drive.
McKeown said the Katanga
army may be preparing to attack
in the Manono area, the tin mining
region seized several months ago
by troops sent from Stanleyville
by leftist Antoine Gizenga. Mc-
Keown expressed fear the Niger-
ians would become involved in the

"As a result of what the Presi-

hope that no clash will occur, but
we still view the situation gravely."
Besides drawing white mercen-

ians and white Rhodesians.

Russia 'Plans
Space Flight
MOSCOW (P) - Top Russian
scientists announced yesterday
they are in the final stages before
sending a man on a space flight
with "no unsolved fundamental
problems" blocking the path.
At a news conference the Rus-
sians, normally tight-lipped on
space matters, impressed 150 cor-
respondents as being confident
they are ready to orbit an astro-
naut. The scientists declined,
however, to predict a date.
They denied they have tried to
orbit a man and failed. Western
reports that as many as seven So-
viet would-be astronauts have died
in space attempts were called "ut-
ter fabrication .. entirely and
absolutely unfounded."
Academy Vice-President Vasily
Topchiev'declined to predict when
the Soviet Union will succeed in
orbiting a man, saying more ex-
periments are necessary to insure
An American correspondent
asked why Soviet scientists do not
announce in advance their space
flights or goals. Topchiev said:
"Sensationalism is alien to us.
Modesty obliges us to announce a
launching when it takes place. To
imply that we do not announce
our flights in order to avoid ad-
mitting failure is wrong. We have
not concealed them (failures) so
far and do not plan to do so in
the future."
The scientists said they do not
consider the United States plan of
first rocketing a man along a tra-
jectory-quickly into space and
back - represents true cosmic
flight. The theme of their talk
was Soviet readiness to send a
man, into orbit around the earth

and they asserted Soviet space
ships already launched and re-
turned with animals aboard could
easily have carried a man.,

High Budge
To Develop
To Include Atomic,
Non-Military Projects
WASHINGTON (P) - President
John F. Kennedy submitted a
$43.79 billion defense budget yes-
terday, raising his over-all budget
for the 1962 fiscal year starting
July 1 to a record peacetime level
of $84.26 billion.
Kennedy asked Congress to
spend more than $1.5 billion ex-
tra on atomic programs and on
non-military space projects.
He asked for a $125.67 million
increase in the budget' of the
National Aeronautics and Space
Administration and a $30.1 million
increase in tie budget of the
Atomic Energy Commission.
The bulk of the increase would
speed up the Saturn C2 launch
program by a year.
This vehicle system would be
designed to put a 22-ton satellite
into orbit around the earth or to
send a man around the moon and
back to earth. Kennedy set 1964
as the new date for its first test
Kennedy also asked Congress to
underwrite another $1,954,000 in
defense insurance. Mostly this
would be for 10 more missile-
firing Polaris submarines, a big-
ger arsenal of long-range Minute-
man rockets, and a stronger capa-
bility to fight limited or guerrilla
type wars.
To beef up the country's none-
too-robust airlift and sealift, Ken-
nedy asked $172 million to buy new
longer range jetprop and pure jet
transports, and $40 million for
one more oceangoing transport
capable of doing 20 knots.
Also under the heading of limit-
ed war preparations, the President
asked money for antisubmarine
warfare and equipping ground
forces with helicopters.
