workers particularly those in the area of foreign relations werent there the day brains got passed out Ive met them by the dozens I dont share thai viewpoint Visits to at least a half hun dred embassiesand consulates in the course of my travel in the past three decades or so has convinced me that thi sweeping indictment is about as far from the truth as anything that could be dreamed up first contacts with our diplomatic representatives came in connection with a visit to Europe and the British Isles in the twenties A decade after World War I had passed and the American Legion was in Paris for a fullfledged conven tion Aspirit of helpfulness from our diplomatic corps was to be expected We werent disap pointed v A dozen years later pur dip lomatic representatives helpec open some doors for me and a dozen associates on a factfind ing mission to Latin America Our big problem1 then was keep ing our neighbors south of Panama from being drawn into the HitlerMussolini orbit In comparatively recent years I profited on almost countless occasions in a roundtheworlc trip which touched on some 30 countries including Russia At close range I saw the big boulders being heaped in Amer icas diplomatic path by world communism operating out ol Kremlin On the basis of all this my testimony would be that while there have been gradations as to capacity in those I have met and come to know over the years I couldnt honestly say that I have ever met one Amer ican in government service who rated being set down per se as an unworthy representative oi our country It was this point of view that prompted me not long ago to pass along to a friend of long standing a recently retired member of the USIA staff a blistering attack on that agency in a New York newspaper For years it has been known for its critical attitude toward any thing having to do with our State Department or govern ment in general My request was for a wholly candid appraisal of the charges leveled at USIA My friend had at an earlier time spent several times as much time in private enterprise as in the govern ment service My correspond ence files contains more than one critical letter from him about some phase of govern ment written when he was serving as public relations di rector for one of the largest corporations in midAmerica What Im trying to say is that in all ways he qualified as an objective observer At the outset of his reply he referred to the thing I have al ready that there are individuals and news papers that delight in singling out isolated instances of inepti tude or worse in government workers and portraying such shortcomings as typical The article from the New York newspaper apparently had been drawn from a recent Nreport by a member of the lower branch of Congress who made USIA a whipping boy in season and out Before be ing elected to Congress he had served as a district attorney That background is helpful to him when as chairman of a Tvrn to 2 ffi North Iowa

test ban bid GENEVA and the United States Mon day proposeda treaty for ah unpoliced ban on nuclear tests in the atmosphere under water and in outer space and the Soviet Union immediately turned a cold shoulder on the idea The Western powers proposed to continue working for a treaty toban tests in all with provisions for international onsite inspection of suspicious tremors which might indicate underground tests Less than two hours after the West offered the partial ban at the 17nation disarmament conference Soviet Deputy Foreign Minister Vasily V Kuznetsov Red Chinese may detonate bomb soon WASHINGTON nist China probably will be in a position to detonate its first Rus sion supplied nuclear bomb within a matter of months a senior official oE the US arms control and disarmament agency said Monday The official stressed that this would still be a very long way from Chinas developing nuclear weapons This would take a mat ter of years he said The possibility of nuclear test ing by Red China was described to newsmen as one example of why the United States wants Rus sia to sign a limited nuclear tes ban treaty if a full treaty can not be negotiated The official said it was hoped this would dis suade Russia from giving China technical heip without which she could not develop a weapons sys tern for many years It has long been known that Red China has been doing scien tificnuclear research with the aid of the Soviets But it is be lieved that Russia recently has been cutting down this type oi aid Graham to crusade in Latin America HUNTSVILLE Ala gelist Billy Graham says he will conduct his next crusade in Latin America because it is the tinderbox of the world right now At a news conference after le spoke to more than 35000 Sunday at the Redstone Arsenal Iraham said Within the next

and takes ac count of improved western meth ods of detecting underground explosions But he stressed i also provides for Internationa inspection on the site of a sus picious earth tremor a provi sion that assured in advance its rejection by the Russians said the United States and Britain while still preferring a comprehensive treaty including a ban on underground nuclea explosions were offering thi partial ban in the belief that i would represent a substantia positive gain for society Kuznelsov was quoted by Western conference sources as saying the Western proposal for a parting ban was a stimulu tonuclear war The Soviet delegate insisted that any treaty banning atomic explosions must include under ground nuclear tests At the same time conference sources said Kuznetsov rejected out of hand the second proposal calling for a ban on all tests n all environments for all time but with provisions for compul sory international inspection on he site of a suspicious tremor which could be an earthquake or a clandestine underground ex plosion Plan strike on CHICAGO Order of Railroad Telegraphers ORT Sunday said it would strike the Chicago and North Western Railway at 6 am CST Thurs day The

rescue tries by the father and not determined Figures looking better Vehicle still off course CAPE CANAVERAL Fla JB Mariner 2 spacecraft rock eted into space Monday and scientists reported there is a possibility it will pass near the planet Venus as planned despite an early trajectory error figures coming in are a lot better than we expected said an elated spokesman at Callechs Jet Propulsion Labora tory which computes telemetry signals being trans mitted from the space probe launched from Cape Canaveral Earlier JPL said Mariner could come within 100000 miles of the mysterious planet but appeared to be only a long shot for passing Venus within the planned 10000 miles I cannot say officially at this time what the telemetry signals mean and they are not com plete as yet the spokesman said But I can tell you this hings are looking much bright er Everybody here has become much more optimistic all of a sudden and much happier he added For a while it was feared the vehicle might miss the planet by 600000 miles although cor rective techniques could cut the miss to 100000 miles Now it appears the actual path may be much closer than that The key to jockeying Mariner 2 back onto its proper path is a 50pound thrust motor which is to be fired by ground signal eight days after launching when the spacecraft is more than a million miles away from earth By then scientists will have calculated the vehicles path ve locity precisely and will know just how long to fire the small motor to straighten out the N ews in a nutshell FROM OUR WIRE SERVICES Shelling investigated WASHINGTON

serious nuclear power course Mariner 2 blasted away from Cape Canaveral at am atop a powerful AtlasAgena B rocket Half an hour later the rocket injected the spacecraft on an interplanetary trajectory The exact reason for the spacecraft being off course in its early stages was not imme diately known But officials sus pected that an abnormal rolling motion in the first stage Atlas rocket might have affected its trajectory The rolling motion occurred for about 50 seconds of the fiveminute Atlas flight Although Mariner 2 was re leased into space at a speed of 25500 miles an hour it gradually began to slow down as planned for the long haul on the 109day 180million mile journey to the sunlit side of Venus Dec 14 Jack James Mariner project manager for NASAs jet propul sion laboratory said rolling might have damaged other instruments in the spacecraft which might af fect its operation in the coming weeks The spacecraft was not de signed for severe buffeting he said We probably wont know until Dec 14 whether the mission is a complete success Shortly after the 447pound pay load was carried aloft NASA of ficials said both stages of the At lasAgena rocket appeared to have fired properly An hour after the lOrStory tall rocket and spacecraft lifted off the tracking station at Woomera Australia picked up1 its signals and confirmed that its span solar panels had unfolded properly The panels
