Frequently, Soviet space achievements are compared unfa- vorably with American production of consumer goods. Within the past week, for exam- ple, a political columnist report- oil with satisfaction that "the whole satellite area has fewer tele- phones than our city of Balti- more." He goes on to say: "Total an- nual satellite automobile output doesn't match the Cadillacs we sell in a year." It is true, of course, that pro- duction of consumer goods has its place in any comparison between the two systems. Premier Khrush- chev himself recognizes the im- portance of consumer goods in his new 20-year plan. Whether he ser- iously intends to achieve its goals or not, he gives consumer goods a higher priority in the Soviet scale of values. Titov Reveals Parachuted East Germans Get 'Blank Check'for Halting Exodus But the point is that production of consumer goods is not a SUB- STITUTK for scientific achieve- ment. Ralph McGill. the noted editor of ihc Atlanta Constitution, put it this way: "It will he too bad if we now have to undergo the folly of be- ing reminded that the Russians are far behind us in consumer gixids and that lo be found in many Tt tion in peril if we are told not to worry because the Russians have almost primitive toilets." houses are to of their cities. IK? a disservice to a na- Foreign Aid Bill Passage Is Predicted WASHINGTON (UPI) Admin- istration forces were confident they could win the first showdown vote in the Senate today on Presi- dent Kennedy's billion for- eign aid bill. Working "closely with the White House, the President's supporters expected to win a narrow victory over attempts by conservatives to pull the teeth from Kennedy's JS.S billion five-year authority for Treasury borrowing to finance economic development loans. Sen. Harry F. Byrd, D-Va., was leading a determined fight for an amendment to clip the wings of the long-term loan provision. The Byrd amendment would retain the five-year authority but require an- nual congressional appropriations lo finance it. The Senate agreed to limit de- bale to seven hours on Byrd's proposal. A group of Republicans were rpixirted ready to reach agree- ment with Foreign Relations Chairman .1. William Fulbright, D-Ark.. on some less stringent compromise In give Congress a continuing review over the new loan program. This would make Byrd's chances of success even slimmer.

The Warsaw Pact is th Red bloc's equivalent of the West' NATO alliance. A Parliament resolution autlioi ized the government "to prepar and execute all measures" neces sary to "prevent the organize head-hunting and slave tradin carried out from West German: and West Berlin and to safeguarc the German Democratic Republic.' The measures the governmen contemplated were not disclosed But they could lead to a ban on East Germany travel to Wes Berlin or closing of the still-open East-West city border.

(UPI) vehicle of another century, a stagecoach, carried an Arizona woman tourist to her death Thurs- day in this restored old west g mining camp. Mrs. Ethel Victoria Gove. 'j2, Phoenix, was added to the list of persons killed on Montana pub- lic highways. The stagecoach was authentic restored from nearly 100 years gold was found in Al- der Gulch in 1863 and brought men flocking lo what would be- come the Montana territory and Virginia City, its capital. It was used to carry tourists around the town, restored as it was in the ISGOs when it was a city ot miners and the hang- out of Henry Plummer's murder- ous highwaymen. A bundle of laundry from a modern laundry truck fell in front of the coach's team. The horses shied and dragged the coach over an embankment.

Army in Bill Will Extend Aid To Impacted Schools WASHINGTON' (UPI) Senate Labor Committee quickly approved today a one-year exten- sion of a measure which allots about million a year lo school districts overburdened by children of federal employes. Some Democrats view the ex- tension of the impacted school hill as the death knell for this session of President Kennedy's mullimillion dollar education package, now hopelessly mired in the House Rules Committee. Tiie committee moved witli speed in approving the stopgap education bill. Sen. Pat McNamara, D-Mich., meanwhile, served notice he would attempt to revive a small portion of the Kennedy school package when the impacted areas bill comes to the Senate floor. McNamara told a reporter he would offer an amendment to tack on a two-year SG50 million pro- gram of federal aid public grade and high schools for class- room construction only. The one-year extension was sponsored by Committee Chair- man Lister Hill, D-Ala., and Sen. Wayne Morse, D-Ore. Backers of the President's pro- gram conceded that separate ac- tion on the impacted areas bill would virtually close the door on chances for any further education legislation this session. The administration's school aid package is bottled up in the House Rules Committee. Some leading Democrats had to revive at least portions of the big education program by tacking it on to impacted areas aid. Separate legislation in this field would foreclose any com- promise move. Despite the gloomy prospects, Sen. Wayne Morse, D-Ore., co- sponsor of the impacted areas bill, refused to write off all for the Kennedy educa- ion program. He told a reporter that Senate lassage of a one-year extension of aid lo impacled areas might prove to lie an inducement for The the House to go HI work" on the remainder of the program. An estimated U.SOO school dis- tricts, located in each of the 50 slates, benefit by federal aid to impacted areas. Every member in Congress ha a slake in Ibe program. Uithoi extension, local school dislric would lose approximately S20 million in federal assistance du ing the school term starting th! fall.

The smaller nations, led b Uruguay, balked Thursday at proposal worked out by the big :er nalions Argentina, Brazi Chile, Mexico and a; igning funds from the 10-yeai S20-billion program .for Latii American development.

The United States stayed in the jackground of the dispute al though its original proposal was much along the lines of that pu forth by the five larger nalions. Some sort of a compromise was expected to come out of a series of informal conferences that start ed Thursday afternoon and were continuing today. The Cuban delegation was point- edly excluded from closed inform- al sessions Thursday. This provoked Cuban Minister of Industries Ernesto (Che) Gue- vara to ask at. one session wheth- er Cuba was or was not in the alliance. Guevara himself led Cuba out of the alliance Tuesday in a long speech challenging the U.S. plan lo match tiie accomplishments ol Communist-style planning in Cuba over the next decade.

LOS ANGELES IUPI) An unusual thunderstorm swept over the Los Angeles metropolitan area early today, causing fires, knock- ing out power and bringing the first measurable rain of the year. The thunderstorm touched off scattered showers throughout Southern California and spread northward toward the San Fran- cisco Bay Area. Los Angeles International Air- port measured .21 inch of rain from the storm, which awakened Ihousands of residents as the un- usual sound of thunder rattled over the cily. Burbank also re- ported .21 inch. Heavy downpours occurred in some areas, causing mudslides in the foothills which closed roads. Lightning struck in several places in the city and in Angeles National Forest which borders it on the north. Most spectacular of the fires resulting from lightning toils was at Beverly Hills Higli School where a 200-foot high oil derrick was struck. The fire, feeding on natural gas from the well, was confined by firemen two hours after it began. Damage was confined to the der- rick and did not spread to nearby school buildings. In Lancaster, about 50 miles north of here, lightning Thursday night set three fires which de- stroyed a bouse, burned 40 tons of hay, and snapped a power pole which plunged the city inlo dark- ness. A spokesman for the Forest Service said lightning started at least 13 fires in Angeles Forest, keeping firemen hopping from one blaze to anolher. All were small and easily contained with the help of the rain. Seek To Oust France from North Africa UMTED NATIONS, N.Y.
