Ike Casts Doubt on Plans

For Russian

Trip i n June

Employs I
About Visit
Hesitation Follows
Anti-U.S. Campaign
WASHINGTON OMf' - President
Dwight D. Eisenhower yesterday
cast doubt on whether he will go
through with his visit to Russia
in June.
"If I go to Russia," was the
way Eisenhower mentioned his
proposed trip in an offhand re-
mark, without further explana-
The remark came after a White
House spokesman had said the
President was fully informed
about the bitter wave of anti-
United States declarations coming
from Premier Nikita S. Khrush-
chev and other Soviet leaders at
the Supreme Soviet (Parliament)
meeting in Moscow.
Aimed at America
The Red leaders have aimed
broadsides at America, at Eisen-
hower, at Vice-President Nixon
and boasted of shooting down a.
United States plane inside the
Soviet Union last Sunday under
Khrushchev's personal orders.
In related developments:
1) A State Department spokes-
man disputed Khrushchev's ac-
cusation that the United States
plane was on a deliberately ag-
gressive, provocative mission.
f Press officer Lincoln White said
the United States assumes that
the pilot of an unarmed American
weather plane missing near the
Turkish - Soviet border Sunday
"blacked out" and might have
crossed into Russian territory.
There was and never has been any
"attempt to deliberately violate
Soviet air space," he said.
Asks Russia
2) The United States govern-,
ment asked the Russians for "full
facts" of the Soviet inquiry into
the plane incident and for in-
formation about the missing pilot,
Francis G. Powers, of Pound, Va.'
The United States made its re-
quest through a note sent by Am-
bassador Llewellyn E. Thompson
to the Soviet foreign office in Mos-
3) United States officials still
were not certain that the plane
Khrushchev talked about is the
missing American craft.
Khrushchev said an American
craft was downed in Southern
Russia at 5:36 a.m. Moscow time I
on Sunday. That is nearly three
and one-half hours earlier than
the hour at which United States
officials say the American plane|
took off from Adna, Turkey.

Soviets Open Propaganda Drive


MOSCOW MA' - Soviet leaders
launched an intense presummit
propaganda campaign yesterday
keyed to the assertion that a "re-
markable rocket" on its first shot
brought down an American air-
plane over Soviet territory.
The shot was fired Sunday, the
nation was told, on direct orders
of Soviet Premier Nikita S. Khru-
Deputies in the Supreme Soviet
(Parliament) broke into wild ap-
plause when Marshal Andrei A.
Grechko described the rocket shot.
They reacted similarly yesterday
when Khrushchev told them the
American plane had been shot
While the Soviet press blossom-
ed with pictures and accounts of
the incident, the Parliament heard
that popular indignation meetings
were being staged all over the
nation to protest the presence of
a United States plane in Soviet
air space.
Manned By Pilot
United States officials say the
plane was apparently an unarmed
weather research craft, manned
only by its pilot, which strayed off
course after a takeoff in Turkey.
Grechko told Parliament that
Khrushchev issued the orders for
the rocket shot at the United
States plane, which he said was
trying to "prove our defenses and
test our readiness to give a dev-
astating repulse to an aggressor."
He said the rocket has "become
the main component of our armed
forces" and separate rocket units
have been established with their
own commands. There is specula-
tion that the marshal commands
the rocket units. His current job
is identified only as a high post.
Fulfilled Order
"Soviet servicemen," he added,
"fulfilled the order of the Soviet
government with credit. Let the
aggressors remember that we have
enough rockets."
He called the flight a provoca-
tion aimed at stirring up presum-
mit tensions and added: "We have
not forgotten Hitler-who also
started by provoations."
Pentagon officials discounted
the "remarkable" features attrib-
uted by a Soviet marshal today
to the missile which he said was
used to shoot down an American
Newer Rocket
On the basis of published re-'
ports of the Parliament speech by
Marshal Andrei A. Grechko, the
rocket he described may have
been the Soviet T6 ground-to-air
missile-similar to the first Nike
IAjax missile in use by the United
States army for several years and

now being replaced by the newer
Nike Hurcules.
A Defense Department spokes-
man also said that if the Russians
had indeed downed the plane with
Royal Coupnle

At Wedding
LONDON (A - Princess Mar-
garet murmured "I will in West-
minster Abbey yesterday and then,
as Mrs. Anthony Armstrong-Jones
sailed away for a $100,000 honey-
moon in the tropics.
A million or more persons
crowded London's streets for yes-
terday's pageantry, the most spec-
tacular in Britain since the coro-
Crowning it all was the solemn
Angelican service of marriage-
and the romance of a princess
with a commoner.
Margaret is the first British
princess in nearly 500' years to
marry a man without a title.
Publicity from the princess' im-
mediate family, the royal corps
of onlookers was smaller than it
might have been. Queen Ingrid of
Denmark was the only European
crowned head present. Others
turned down invitations politely
but firmly.
If the Duke and Dutchess of
Windsor watched the wedding on
TV it's a secret. They are staying
at their country home just out-
side Paris. A spokesman said he
did not know if the Duke and Duc-
hess watched.

a hit from a missile, that action
demonstrated nothing that would
affect the United States' program
for using bombers as well as mis-
siles if war with Russia came in
the forseeable future.
Made Points
The spokesman made these
1. The U2 weather reconnais-
sance plane presumed to have
been the Soviet target is a com-
paratively slow, unmaneuverable
craft, actually designed on the
principle of a Jet-powered glider
for purposes of taking it to high
altitudes for atmospheric and
meteorological research.
2. The strategic bombing system
of the U. S. Air Force and Navy
is patterned around entirely dif-
ferent planes and tactics. The
bombers themselves are far faster
than the U2-more than 100 miles
per hour faster in the case of the
B52 heavies, while the newer B58
medium bombers are capable of
supersonic flight.
Includes Counter-Measures
Moreover, a basic part of the
bomber system includes counter-
measures, such as radar-jamming
equipment and "decoy" missiles
such as the "quail" to confuse
enemy tracking. In addition, B52's
are now being armed with "hound
dog" missiles which are launched
up to 600 miles from a defended
target and attain speeds of more
than 1,400 miles an hour.
3. Investigation up to now in-
dicates the pilot of the U2 may
have blacked out because of fail-
ure of his oxygen system while at
an altitude of more than 50,000
feet. If this were true, his air-
plane, on automatic pilot, might
have flown a straight, undeviating
course across the Soviet-Turkish
border-presenting a remarkably
easy target.

Request Ike
To Approve
A rea Aid
sent President Dwight D. Eisen-
hower yesterday a 251-million-
dollar depressed areas aid bill but
the 45-32 vote fell far short of
the two-thirds needed to override
an expected veto.
The Democratic-backed meas-
ure would authorize federal loans
and grants to try to create new
jobs in industrial and rural areas
suffering from long-term unem-
Only last Tuesday the President,
urged Congress not to pass such
a broad measure, but instead to
send him the Administration's 53-
million-dollar bill.
Democrats are confident, how-
ever, that they have created a
potent political issue for the fall
campaign, even if the legislation
falls before a veto.
Eisenhower killed a similar pro-
gram with a pocket veto in 1958.
Democrats have credited this with
helping greatly their sweep in the
Congressional elections that fall.
The Senate accepted house
changes cutting down the original
Senate bill which totaled $389.5
million. The margin was seven less
than needed to override a veto.
Democratic senators contended
the Eisenhower administration
was willing to spend more than
four billion dollars on foreign aid,
but was refusing to accept a quar-
ter of a billon dollar program for
distressed Americans at home.

Civil Rights Bill Signe

WASHINGTON () -- The new
1960 civil rights bill with provi-
sions to protect the voting rights
of Negroes and other minorities
became law yesterday without fan-
Congress struggled over the
measure for months, and it tied
up the Senate for a week of
around-the-clock sessions before
it went to the White House over
two weeks ago.
Signing it yesterday, President
Dwight D. Eisenhower called the
new act "an historic step forward
in the field of civil rights."
"With continuing help from all
persons, the new law will play an
important role in the 'days ahead
in attaining our goal of equality
under law in 'all areas of our
country for all Americans," the
President said.
Watch Signing
He invited Atty. Gen. William
P. Rogers and Deputy Atty. Gen.
Lawrence Walsh to 'watch the
Rogers said he hoped responsi-
ble state officials would act volun-
tarily to eliminate discrimination
at the polls but if they don't, he
said the justice department would
investigate complaints promptly
and "proceed vigorously."
Theenew law contains provisions
against bombings, against inter-
ference with federal court orders
and for federally authorized
school facilities for children of
servicemen if the public schools
in their areas are closed to avoid
desegregation orders.
It sets up a new procedure un-
der which the Attorey General

could file suit asking courts to
find there is a pattern of dis-
crimination against the exercise
of voting rights.
Could Order Franchise
If such a finding is made, court-
appointed referees could hear
complaints from those discrimi-
nated against. If the referee found
such persons qualified under state
law, he could order that they be
permitted to register and vote.
Eisenhower said the referee pro-
vision "holds great promise of
making the 15th Amendment (on
voting rights) fully meaningful."
He commented that the new act

is only the second civil righ'
measure passed by Congress in &
years. He said both it and t1

mendations of the administration
With Southerners leading t

recommendations of the Eiser
