a U.S.-Soviet showdown over Gen-
eral Assembly voting rights.
The initial response from the
Russians was not encouraging.
Comment from other UN diplo-
mats indicated that no agreement
on the financial crisis was in sight.
Lord Caradon, British minister
of state, made the appeal in a
policy speech to the 115-nation
General Assembly-his first since
his appointment as his country's
chief UN delegate.
He declared that if a voluntary
fund was established to save the
United Nations from bankruptcy
"We ourselves would be prepared
under suitable conditions to make
He said Britain would do so in
an effort to get general agree-
ment to enable the United Nations,
to end the deadlock over voting
rights, and to go forward "to face
the tasks of the future, tasks
which we are anxious to tackle
without further delay."

The Soviet Union, France and
14 other UN members are in that

UN peacekeeping assessments. The
two big powers contend the assess-

approved by the Assembly instead
of the Security Council.
Lord Caradon told a reporter he

peal "France will not hold back."

months of frustration for United
States man-in-space plans and
clearing the way for astronauts
Virgil I. Grissom and John W.
Young to ride a similar capsule
into orbit in April.
After the spacecraft had been
retrieved from the sea and se-
cured on the deck of an aircraft
carrier at the end of its 19-min-
ute flight, Grissom told a news
"There are a lot of happy peo-

A Titan 2 booster rocket rose
from here at 9:03 a.m., only three
minutes behind schedule. It pro-
peled the 6900-pound spacecraft
to an altitude of 105 miles and
drilled it back through the sear-

phere at a peak speed of about
16,600 miles an hour.
After its descent, the space

TOKYO - Japanese Foreign Minister Etsusaburo Shiina said
yesterday he has the impression that both, the United States and

Weather caused a delay in operations of military air transport
service aircraft, and none was available for the flight to the United
States naval base on Cuba's southeastern shore.
Last March President Lyndon B. Johnson ordered that the base
phase out its dependents to achieve garrison status. The order had
resulted from a water shut-off by Cuba Premier Fidel Castro.
A 5th Naval District spokesman said that MATS plans to fly
900 dependents to Cuba within the next six weeks at the rate of four
flights a week.
ENUGU, Nigeria-The World Council of Churches yesterday an-
nounced it will set up a working committee for formal consultations
with the Roman Catholic Church.
The significant ecumenical breakthrough came after years of
behind-the-scenes planning, sources said.
It is planned as a purely consultative body which "would not be
able to make any decisions," said a report approved by the council's
100-member central committee.
Unofficial talks have been taking place for years between the
Vatican and such high council officials as General Secretary William
A. Visser T. Hooft.
