PRICE-FIXING HEARINGS:
Vinson Contradicts Other T

WASHINGTON (MF-Arthur F.
Vinson, vice-president of General
Electric, yesterday denied testi-
mony that he had ordered illegal
meetings to fix prices.,
"Somebody is crazy or some-
body is lying," Sen. Philip A. Hart
(D-Mich) answered him.
And Sen. Estes Kefauver (D-
Tenn), chairman of the Senate
antitrust and monopoly subcom-
mittee, said a transcript of the
conflicting testimony by Vinson
and four other witnesses would
be sent to the Justice Depart-
ment.
There, Kefauver said, it would
be "examined for the possibility
of perjury."

In previous hearings, four wit-
nesses, all fired by GE for tak-
ing part in price fixing meetings,
testified that Vinson, at a lunch-
eon in Philadelphia in 1958, had
directed that GE representatives
meet with competitors to fix
prices.
But Vinson told the subcommit-
tee yesterday:
"There was no such luncheon
as has been described."
In fact, Vinson continued, until
recent scandals broke, he had nev-
er heard of any collusion by a GE
employe in his 30 years with the
company.
"I deeply regret that I didn't
know what was going on," he tes-

ment requested. Already claim-

New Rocket
Investigates
Outer Space
CAPE CANAVERAL OP') - The
United States yesterday fired into
orbit the world's first astronomi-
cal satellite-a "space telescope"
designed to unlocq mysteries of
cosmic radiation.
The satellite is the thirty-ninth
put in orbit by United States sci-'
entists since Explorer I hurtled
aloft 39 months ago.
A four-stage Juno II rocket
blasted the 95-pound telescope in-
to an orbit ranging from about 300
to 750 miles above the earth. The
National Aeronautics and Space
Administration named the high-
flying observatory Explorer XI.
About 250 newsmen, the great-
est number since the early Ameri-
can space efforts, witnessed the
launching. Most are here to cover
the attempt to send a human as-
tronaut on a 115-mile-high sub-
orbital space ride, expected next
Thursday.
The mission of the seven and
one-half-foot telescope was to
peer into millions of miles of space
in a search for gamma rays -
high - energy radiation which
streams out from cosmic sources.
Scientists believe these rays
may be the keys to information
about the elements which make
up the universe.

WASHINGTON () -- President
John F. Kennedy asked Congress
yesterday to join him in laying
down clear guidelines against cor-
ruption in government.
He called for regulations to
"punish venality and double-deal-
ing, and set a general ethical
tone for the conduct of public
business."
In a special message to the
House and Senate, Kennedy said
venal conduct by public officials
in this country has been compar-
atively rare, but he added:
Conditions Change
"Nevertheless, in the past two
decades, incidents have occurred
to remind us that the'laws and
regulations governing ethics in
government are not adequate to
the changed role of the federal
government, or to the changing
conditions of our society."
Kennedy made no specific allu-
sion to any of the investigations
involving influence peddling and
other scandals which have en-
livened congressional hearings
during the period he mentioned.
The President noted that con-
flict of interest laws date back 100
years or more. He said recent
studies have recommended that
"our outmoded and hodge-podge
collection of statutes and regula-
tions be amended, revised and

LONDON-Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip will begin their
long delayed West African tour in Ghana Nov. 10, Buckingham Pal-
ace announced last night.
The royal couple are to visit Ghana, Sierra Leone, Gambia and
Liberia on the month-long visit. The West African tour originally
was scheduled for the fall of 1959, but was postponed because the
Queen was then expecting her third child.

strengthened to take account of
new problems."
Executive Order
The President said he is taking
these actions by executive order,
and asked Congress to add to his
program:
1) Gifts to government person-
nel are prohibited whenever it ap-
pears they are designed to influ-
ence official conduct.
Church Group
Hears Request
BUCK HILL FALLS, Pa. (P') -
Word that the Holy Russian Or-
thodox Church wants to join the
World Council of Churches yes-
terday stirred mixed reaction
from American Christian leaders.
The surprise announcement of
the application by the Russian
church, which for decades has
stood aloof from the rest of
Christendom, came at a meeting
here of the council's United States
conference.

2) Government employes are
prohibited from using official in-
formation for private gain, such
as for speculating in the stock
market.
'Subtle Extortion'
3) No government employe may
use for position to engage in "the
subtler forms of extortion" by
seeking favors from someone whose
interests may be affected by ac-
tions of the employe or his agen-
cy.
4) No government employe
should engage in outside employ-
ment which is incompatible with
his government work.
5) Orders will be issued regu-
lating in detail the conduct of
presidential appointees. "These
high level officials owe a special
responsibility to the government
and to the employes of their de-
partments to set a high standard
of ethical and moral behavior,"
Kennedy said.
6) Governmentwide standards
will be applied to the retention
of property or stocks by appoin-
tees in the executive branch.

SIKESTON, Mo.-A racially mixed group of members of the
Congress of Racial Equality were arrested here for "peace disturb-
ance" in a restaurant April 22 __
while participating in an inter-
state bus trip.
The trip by members of St. Louis

ta.
It~ is also a pilot project for
"Freedom Ride, 1961" which will
begin May 1 to test discrimination
