Bormann Fled Country,
Argentine Diplomat Says

TEL AVIV, Israel (M - Martin
Bormann, Hitler's deputy who dis-
appeared in. the final days of
World War II; lived in Argentina
until last year and then fled to.
Brazil, a retired Argentine diplo-
mat said yesterday.
Dr. Gregorio Topolevsky, former
ambassador to Israel, told news-
men Bormann was living under an
alias and fled when Israeli agents
captured Adolf Eichmann near
Buenos Aires in May 1960. Brazil-
ian authorities said, however, they
have no knowledge of Bormann's

Bormann was in the country, Top-
olevsky said.
Bormann has been reported
seen several times in Brazil's
southern state, Santa Catarina,
which has a heavy German and
Dutch population.
Brazilian police and Interpol,
the international police organiza-
tion, maintain they have been un-
able to find any trace of Bor--
mann in Brazil. Brazilian author-
ities said yesterday that despite
Topolevsky's charge, they still had
no leads.

seph Mengele, a German physi-
cian at Auschwitz death camp,
also is living in Argentina.

in their first contact at a Laotian
truce meeting yesterday, a govern-
ment army spokesman said.
The outlook for a 14-nation con-
ference due to take up Laos' fu-
ture in Geneva Friday was further
beclouded. The United States, Bri-
tain and France have said they will
not take part until the commis-
sion confirms that a cease-fire is
truly in effect.
"The other side (the rebels)
said they could not recognize the
ICC," Lt. Col. Udon Sananikone
said of the royal government's
delegation in reporting on a 25-
minute meeting at Hin Heup, the
cease-fire negotiating site 55 miles
north of Vientaine. "They said
they had no instructions."
Decline Comment
Indian, Canadian and Polish of-
ficers of the commission, which is
seeking to certify and supervise
the truce proclaimed last Wed-
nesday, declined comment. Re-
turning by helicopter to this ad-
ministrative capital, they said they

WASHINGTON (A) - President
John F. Kennedy promised yes-
terday at the Governors' Confer-
ence Civil Defense Committee to
have a new, strengthened civil de-
fense program ready in a month.
There was no hint about the
details of the program.
Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller of
New York, chairman of the com-
mittee, said that the governors
want Congress to approve the civ-
il defense budget request. This
asks a regular appropriation of
$105 million plus an extra nine
million dollars to build fallout
shelters in government buildings.
Both Rockefeller and Gov.
Stephen L. McNichols of Colorado,
chairman of the governors' con-
ference and an ex-officio member
of the committee, said they re-
gard a strong civil defense-par-
ticularly one using fallout shelters
-as a deterrent to war.
McNichols predicted Kennedy

would "come up with a reasonable
Another member of the commit-
tee, Gov. Edmund G. Brown of
California, said the governors
would accept a decision by Ken-
nedy against a big fallout shelter
program if the President felt such
a program would be "too costly in
relation to other priorities."

ate approved yesterday President
John F. Kenedy's request for a
$500-million fund to help initiate
a big cooperative Latin American
economic and social development
The Senate acted by voice vote
after writing in a provision that
none of the money made available
under the bill for Latin American
development can be reloaned at
an interest rate of in excess of 8
per cent.

ate Armed Services Committee
agreed unanimously yesterday that
more manned bombers are needed
than President John F. Kennedy
asked to defend the nation while
the unmanned missile arsenal is
That was the effect of a vote
to add $525 million for 44 extra
bombers to a $12,499,800,000
authorization bill for missiles, air-
craft and ships. Otherwise, the
committee went along with the
President on what is needed in
those fields.
Similar Action
The senators' vote followed
similar action last week by the
House Armed Services Committee.
When the House committee ap-
proved a $12,368,000,000 authoriza-
tion measure, Chairman Carl Vin-
son (D-Ga) said the time has not
yet come when principal reliance
can be placed on the intercon-
tinental ballistic missile.
The senators rejected a motion
by Sen. Storm Thurmond (D-SC)
to authorize $160 million toward
future production of the army's
Nike-Zeus missile killer. The

money would have been used to
buy advance items if tests of the
antimissile missile in the Pacific
this year are successful.
The committee took no action on
Air Force proposals to continue
development of the B70 super-
sonic jet bomber as a complete
weapons system, rather than cut-
ting it back to an experimental
project as Kennedy asked.
Not Debated
Chairman Richard B. Russell
(D-Ga) said the decision to cut
back B70 funds to $138 million
was not debated but would be
fought out later when the $43
billion defense appropriations bill
is brought up. The committee, he
said, decided the B70 involved re-
search and development funds
rather than actual production
Both Senate and House com-
mittees approved without change
the administration plan to provide
$4 billion to step up production
of ocean-spanning Polaris and
Minuteman missiles and lesser
rockets and missiles.
On the question of extra bomb-

ers, the two committees differed
in detail.
The House group voted to au-
thorize $377-million for purchas-
ing either B52 long-range bomb-
ers or B58 supersonic medium-
range bombers.
House Passes
School Aid Bill
passed a bill yesterday to require
an eight-year military obligation
of all reservists from 17 to 26
years old.
The measure sent to the Sen-
ate would place all reservists on
the same footing by adding two
years to the obligation of men
from 18% to 26 who enlist in the
ready reserves.
The eight-year obligation al-
ready applies to those who enter
the reserve forces under 18%, and
for draftees who must remain in
the reserve for six years after
completing two years on active
