Khrushchev had sent a message congratulating the United States on Astronaut John H. Glenn Jr.'s triple orbit of the globe and suggesting the two governments combine resources to explore outer space. Less than four hours after the news conference the White House made public a direct reply to Khrushchev. In it Kennedy expressed hope "that at a very early date our representatives may meet to discuss our ideas and yours in a spirit of practical cooperation." He added the United States would come up with "new and concrete proposals" for joint en- terprises that could be undertaken without delay.

Police reported more Kennedy's new bid for Soviet cooperation in outer space is judged here to have some chance of separating the space race from the arms race and leading to a peace pact for the skies. But the chance is not very great. Nor is the time to get re- sults very long. The discouraging factor, as Kennedy himself indicated at his news conference Wednesday, is the failure of efforts during the past year to reach accords on any of the pressing, earth-bound issues which have for so long in- flamed East-West relations. Not Commitled The space -problem could prove different in one respect, at least. 11 arises from an area of com- petition between the Soviet Union and the Western powers and its military potential is large. But al- though military boosters and mili- tary men have figured in space achievements to date, space is not yet committed by either side to war-like purposes so far as any- one here can say. As Kennedy told reporters (Continued on Two) Junior High Students Plan Science Fair operation in space dominated the: half-hour meeting with newsmen. But in answering questions Ken-! nedy also disclosed a special board of inquiry is determining whether U2 pilot Francis Gary Powers violated the contract un- der which he made his ill-fated reconnaissance flight over the Soviet Union on May 1, I960. Secret Quizzing Government officials have inter- rogated Powers in secret ever since he was released Feb. 10 in a prisoner exchange with the So- viets. As for the chance of lowering barriers between the United States and the Soviet Union on space projects, Kennedy said this country would be happy to dis- cuss cooperation at the United Na- tions or anywhere else. But he in- sisted cooperation would have to be genuine. And he acknowledged there is no more assurance now than ever that the Soviets are willing to transform general ex- pressions of togetherness into specific agreements.

But he says there will be such a department "sooner or later." The lopsided 264-150 House vote Wednesday also killed Kennedy's plans to put a Negro, 'Robert C. Weaver, in the Cabinet for the first time.' Weaver, now head of the Housing-, and Home Finance Agency, would have become the urban affairs secretary. In turning back Kennedy's re- organization-'.prop'osal 1U Demo- crats, mostly Southerners, joined 153 Republicans. Thirteen Repub- licans crossed over to support the President, voting with 137 Demo- crats for the plan. At his news conference Kennedy blamed his expected but stunning setback, on -sectionalism. He said: "If we.in this country began to adopt 'the system that everyone who lives in a city area voted against, those things which were of assistance to the farmer, and everybody 'who comes from a rural area voted against those policies which provided a better life for people in the city this country would'come to a grinding halt." Expressing regret that Congress had rejected the plan, Kennedy said he still regarded creation of such a department vitally impor- tant.

Battle Line, a publication of the Republican National Committee, again accused Kennedy of at- tempting "to becloud the issue with a cynical appeal to racial prejudice." Battle Line said Ken- nedy "emerges from the urban affairs fiasco as a man struck down by a boomerang."
