Could Prove Start of Cooperation
On Space Studies, Atomic Research
WASHINGTON (P)-The United States and Russia signed a
trail-blazing agreement yesterday to organize join scientific studies
in the conquest of disease and to explore the desirability of joint
projects in the peaceful uses of atomic energy.
The accord reached in these fields of science could prove a fore-
runner of an agreement already discussed by scientists of the two
nations for joint endeavors in space exploration.
The scientific programs are part of a new, over-all exchange pact
covering also a wide variety of other subjects ranging from industry
?and agriculture to education and

EXCHANGE PACT-The United States and Russia have agreed
to exchanges of information on the peaceful uses of atomic
energy. The University's Phoenix Memorial Project does research
in this field with equipment such as these instruments for the
handling of radioactive substances by remote control.-Russia and
the United States have also agreed to explore the desirability of
joint scientific projects.
