"A COMIC TRIUMPH!"-N.Y. Times

'U.S..'Ready',
To Establish
New Force
OTTAWA (,)--President John
F. Kennedy said yesterday the
United States is ready to establish
an internationally-controlled sea-
borne nuclear missile force and
to beef up allied nuclear and con-
ventional forces to convince world
Communism and its "grand de-
signs" will be resisted.
The President, in a major ad-
dress to the Canadian Parliament,
also bluntly told Canada it is time
she joined the Organization of
American States in an all-out ef-
fort to secure the whole Western
Hemisphere against "the en-
croachment of international com-
munism."
Kennedy reminded the parlia-
ment the United States plans to
commit five-and subsequently
more-Polaris atomic-missile sub-
marines to the National Atlantic
Treaty Organization command
area, subject to allied agreement.
"Beyond this," Kennedy said,
"we look to the possibility of even-
tually establishing a NATO sea-
borne missile forces which would
be truly multilateral in ownership
and control."
The United States, he said, in-
tends to strengthen the conven-
tional capability of the alliance as
a "matter of highest priority."
See Eichmann
As 'Watchdog'
JERUSALEM (M-Adolf Eich-
mann was depicted yesterday as a
watchdog of the Nazi death ma-
chinery who blocked all escape
routes and then made the Jews
pay their own way to death.
Deputy Prosecutor Yaakov Bar'-
Or introduced 80 letters, minutes,
cables and decrees designed to
show that Eichmann did not neg-
lect a single detail when it came
to achieving the "final solution of
the Jewish question"-Adolf Hit-
ler's phrase for annihilation.

U.S. States
Requirement
For Peace
Russia Asks SEATO
To Renounce Pledge
By The Associated Press
GENEVA - Secretary of State
Dean Rusk yesterday demanded
the withdrawal of all military
forces from Laos and charged the
Communists are violating the
ceasefire there.
And Russia demanded that the
Southeast Asia Treaty Organiza-
tion renounce its support of the
Royal Laotian government, and
they too called for a withdrawal
within 30 days of the peace settle-
ment.
Meanwhile, in Ban Namone,
after four days of bickering, rebel
and government negotiators agreed
to discuss forming a coalition gov-
ernment for Laos and a joint mili-
tary committee to help supervise
the cease-fire.
Agreement Important
The agreement, first of any
importance since the talks opened
Sunday, could clear the way for
selection of a unified delegation
to represent all Laos at the 14-
nation conference in Geneva.
At the Geneva talks, the Unit-
ed States and Russia both en-
visioned a neutral policy for Laos
and evacuation of all foreign
troops to end the isolated nation's
role as a pawn in the East-West
cold war.
Rusk promised that all Ameri-
can troops would pull out of Laos
if foreign Communist forces ad-
vising the pro-Communist Pathet
Lao rebels also would leave.
Air-Lift Supplies
Meanwhile, a dispatch in Prav-
da, the Communist Party news-
paper in Moscow, for the first
time admitted Soviet planes were
airlifting supplies to pro-Commu-
nist forces in Laos.
In Laos, pro-Communist Path-
et Lao rebel negotiators won their
main demand-that top priority
in future discussions be given to
formation of a coalition govern-
ment rather than military mat-
ters.
The Royal government, how-
ever, won agreement to its chief
demand that a joint military group
be formed to work with the three-
nation international control com-
mission in checking on the cease-
fire.

WASHINGTON ()--The House,
by a 401-2 vote, passed a resolu-
tion yesterday urging the Organi-
zation of American States to im-
pose economic sanctions on Cuba.
The resolution, which goes to
the Senate, describes the Cuba of
Prime Minister Fidel Castro as "a
base and staging area for Commu-
nist subversive activity through-
out the hemisphere."
Supporters of federal aid to ed-
ucation quashed two attempts in
the Senate to revise President
John F. Kennedy's $2.55 billion
school bill.
By lopsided votes, the Senate
defeated a Southern amendment
to protect segregated school dis-
tricts and a substitute bill to re-
vamp the administration program.
Attorney General Robert F.
Kennedyasked Congress to help
the Justice Department go after
hoodlums and racketeers who
"have become so rich and so pow-

erful that they have outgrown lo-
cal authorities."
Urging passage of a series of
bills aimed at breaking up "vicious
and dangerous criminal combina-
tions," Kennedy said "only the
federal government can curtail the
flow of funds which permit the
kingpins to live far from the

National Roundup ]

scene," beyond the reach of local'
officials.
In a hurry-up move to keep the
Federal Housing Authority from
running out of home loan insur-
ance, the Senate Banking Com-
mittee voted unanimously for a
$1 billion increase in the agency's
$37.5 billion ceiling.

Make Plans,
For Meeting
By The Associated Press
VIENNA - Preparations were
well under way last night for an
informal summit meeting early
next month-possibly June 2 -
between President John F. Ken-
nedy and Soviet Premier Nikita S.
Khrushchev here.
Preparatory work began after
the Austrian chancellery an-
nounced it gave a "positive reply"
to an American inquiry whether
Vienna could host the meeting.
In Canada Kennedy moved
ahead with plans for the meeting
by giving advance notice to sena-
tors and to allies in friendly capi-
tals.
Informed sources said Kennedy
and Khrushchev have reached
agreement on a brief and informal
get together but final details re-
main to be worked out.
