Kennedy Urges U.S. Export Increase

UN, To Drop
Congo Force
tary-General U Thant announced
yesterday that he is going ahead
with plans to liquidate United Na-
tions forces in the Congo despite
appeals by the Congolese govern-
ment and some member nations.
Thant declared in a report to
the Security Council that he plans
to have all the United Nations
troops out of the Congo by the end
of the year unless he receives or-,
ders to the -contrary' or unless the
General Assembly acts quickly to
provide money.
"I would like to warn," he said,
"that if any such new action is
contemplated, it must be taken-
very soon since, in anticipation of
its termination by December 31,
supplies for the force are no longer
being fed into its logistics pipe-
Costly Operation
"To establish and feed supplies
into a new pipeline would take
much time and would be very cost-
Thant expressed some misgiv-
ings about withdrawal of the Unit-
ed Nations forces. But he said the
needs must be weighed against
the serious financial condition of
thei United Nations caused by "the
refusal or failure of many members
to pay the special assessments."
/The United States and Britain
are understood to be among the
countries, which have urged a go-
slow withdrawal of the United Na-
tions forces.
Next to Disarmament

eral said that next tor disarmament,

Africans living in Portuguese ter-
ritories, and of the situation in

tributed by Tass, that he was con-
fident decisions, settlements and

Proposed Shelter Bill
WASHINGTON (P)-Speaker John W. McCormack told a hushed
House of Representatives yesterday "I, in my conscience, could not
vote against" legislation designed to provide fallout shelters for 11
million Americans in case of nuclear war.
"This bill is aimed at saving American lives in case there is a
general attack," the white-haired Massachusetts Democrat said

City Mourns
For Victims
BIRMINGHAM (p) - Negroes
prepared yesterday for the funeral
of a 14-year-old girl, among four
killed Sunday in a church bomb-
ing, and their leaders sought a
meeting with President John F.
Kennedy to plead for federal forces
in keeping order here.
Heavily armed state and local
policeman, nearly 900 strong, pa-
troled the city. Extra precautions
were taken by police officials for
the funeral of Carol Robertson,
the first of the bomb victims to be
Hold Services
A funeral service for the other
three victims will be held today.
They were Denise McNair, 11, and
Addie Mae Collins and Cynthia
Wesley, both 14.
City Councilman Allen Drennan
was to attend the funeral. Several
other city officials might be there,
said a spokesman for Mayor Al-
bert Boutwell.
In New York the Congress of
Racial Equality announced today
that 100 CORE chapters in as
many cities have been asked to
"make Sunday a day of mourning
for the six Negro children killed in
Draw Attention
A CORE spokesman said that
"each chapter will conduct me-
morial services or other appropri-
ate activities to draw attention to
the murders."
Meanwhile, the 10 chairmen of
last month's March on Washing-
ton issued a statement saying "in
response to please from the be-
leaguered Negroes in Birmingham,
we are calling upon all Americans
to observe this Sunday as a day
of mourning."

And Rep. F. Edward Hebert (D-
La) told the House:

"I don't know whether it will
save a single life, but I am not

McCormack termed "unfortunate
and materialistic" the argument
that lifesaving efforts would be
hopeless in the face of an all-out
nuclear attack.

lion program to offer federal in-
centive payments to spur fallout

million to build one million new
shelters in federal buildings.
Calls Bill Unnecessary
McCormack made his speech
after Rep. Clarence Brown (R-
Ohio) attacked the administration
plan as an unnecessary "political
Brown said the choice of areas
that would get federally aided
shelters could mean political trou-
bles for members of the House.
The $175-million authorization
would be only the first step in a
five-year, $2.1-billion program of
shelter aid, Brown added.
Hebert said apathy and disin-
terest are biggest barriers to an
effective shelter system.
The administration bill provides
up to $2.50 a square' foot to help
provide shelter spaces across the
To be eligible, a shelter would
have to provide space for 50 peo-
ple, at 10 square feet each.
Hebert said it would cost an
average of $4 a square foot to mod-

ings open to the public.

The diplomatic break drew ex-
pressions of concern and regret

as an anti-Communist bulwark.

In the Soviet Union, two Mos-

creation of the Federation Mon-

preserve Britain's influence in
Southeast Esia. This line, which
follows that of President Sukarno,
was presented by the armed forces

The Malayan march on the In-

for an Indonesian mob's assault
on the Malaysian embassy in Ja-

Malaya ,Singapore, Sarawak and
North Borneo and vows to main-

By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON-President John
F. Kennedy posted a new growth
target yesterday for Americanj
business-a 10 per cent increase
in exports which, he said, would1
wipe out the balance of payments
The President also urged 400 in-
dustry executives and others,
opening the two-day White House
conference on export expansion, to
press for restoration of what he
termed disastrous House cuts in
foreign aid funds.
Government aid cannot substi-
tute for free enterprise in expand-
ing foreign trade, Kennedy said,
"but it can assist in breaking the
path." .He went on:
Severe Impact
"And the recent cuts in this
program by the House of Repre-
sentatives, while saving at most
only $20 million in American dol-
lars on our balance of payments
accounts, will have a severe im-
pact upon our exports as well as
our security."
Half the members of his Cab-
inet joined Kennedy yesterday in
launching the accelerated export
drive. The conference is part of
the six-point . government-wide
campaign to stem the dollar out-

Hit Attitude
Of Scientists
NEW YORK W)-The Center
for the Study of Democratic In-
stitutions has issued a report say-
ing many American scientists are
irresponsible and self-assured to
The report said a majority of
scientists, especially those con-
nected with the arms program, are
not acting in the best interests of
a free society.
Dr. Robert M. Hutchins, presi-
dent of the center, said scientists
are educated to do nothing but col-
lect facts and are so specialized
that they have "no general ideas."
Dr. Scott Buchanan, former dean
of St. John's College in Annapolis,
Md., said, scientists are "not able
to take responsibility for their own
strategic judgments in science, to
say nothing of the uses to which
their work will be put."
He said that if the scientist's
concern is truth, "It's his respon-
sibility to be sure that science is
not misused so that something
false comes out of it."
The center, located in Santa
Barbara, Calif., is a non-profit
educational institution establish-
ed by the Fund for the Republic.

vitation to the businessmen to
speak out "freely, candidly and
fully" on their complaints or sug-
gestions for government measures
to improve the climate for United
States exporters.
Solve Problems
"If you can add just 10 per
cent to your exports-and that
should not be too great -a task for
the enterprisers of the United
States-it will help us solve all our
problems," Kennedy said.
