the process of passing Russia in outer space exploration were seeing the first real indication of a willingness to accept our invitation extended by Dwighl D Eisenhower to cooperate in this important field The day after John Glenn orbited the earth Feb Nikita Khrushchev wired his congratulations to President Kennedy and offered this obser vation If countries pooled their ef technical and explore outer space it would be very bene ficial to the advance of science and would be acclaimed by all people who would to see scientific achievements benefit man and not be used for war purposes and the arms race Until that time Moscow shrugged off the Eisenhower proposal Ever since the USSR abandoned what had been a worldwide program by scien tists and launched its Sputnik No 1 in 1D57 the Kremlin lost no opportunity to turn its space feats into propaganda Following the breakdown of general disarmament negotia tions in London earlier that year Eisenhower suggested in a UN message that all coun tries agree that outer space should be used only for peace The Kremlins reply was that the Soviet Union would discuss control of outer space only if the western powers agreed in advance to ban nuclear weapons cease testing those weapons and liquidate their foreign bases Washington turned down the counter proposal because it ob viously would have left the free world largely undefended and vulnerable In 1958 the matter was placed on the agenda of UN by Am bassador Lodge Responding to an appeal by Secretary Dulles the General Assemby set up a temporary committee on The Peaceful Use of Outer Space A year later a permanent com mittee was formed That com mittee was largely ineffective because of obstructive tactics by the Russians In fact the committee hasnt even held a meeting since 1959 Its hands were tied Not until this year has there been any perceptible change in the Kremlins attitude And the reasons for the change arc too apparent to be missed Another selfevident fact is that Russia is falling behind in other fields as it seeks to outdo the economies of free nations This shows up particularly in the production of food and other consumer goods The mounting cost and com plexity of space projects has clearly persuaded Russian lead ers that some degree of coop eration with U S would be to their advantage That explains the new Russian attitude I think Recent signs of strain in the Soviet economy have led to sug gestions that Moscow might find it hard to carry through on the cost of sending a manned space ship to the moon By pooling resources on lesser projects its reasoned Russia might pour more money into the moon pro gram That Washington was happy to receive Khrushchevs latest Turn to Pagt 2 The Weather North Iowa Fair to partly cloudy through Tuesday Lows Monday
