Informants close to the confer- ence in the heavily guarded Hotel Du Pare were still optimistic that the negotiations would end in agreement but conceded it might not come as quickly as hoped. The delegations are striving to reach agreement on a cease-fire to end the Algerian rebellion. The accord would be accompanied by a lengthy docu- ment spelling out Algeria's future on a basis of self-determination. Two main issues are said to confront the delegations the makeup of the provisional execu- tive and the strength of the local force or local gendarmerie which have chief responsibility for keeping order during the in- terim period. Both delegations maintained a strict secrecy rule in contacts newsmen here and across Lake Geneva in neutral Switzer- land where the rebels have their headquarters. Reliable informants said a lengthy Sunday session failed to produce full agreement on the executive. One reported proposal was for a 12-man panel composed of nine Moslems of no political affiliation and three Europeans. Another called for a panel of four Algerian nationalists, four other Moslems and four Europeans. The Algerians were reported seeking a larger local force for (Continued on Page Two) Field Trials Here Enter Second Phase After miles of rough riding and by dogs and the gallery, the Ada Field Trials entered its second and most professional stage Monday morning with the start of the open all-age stakes on llie Busby Ranch.

His statements contra'sled sharply with his comments made as recently as a month ago; criticizing U.S. policy toward Laos. Sarit and other Thaiofficials protested U.S. support for a neutralist coalition government in Laos, which they claimed would lead to Communist domination of that next-door neighbor 'and en- danger Thailand's security. They roundly scored so-called pressure tactics by the United States, including the withholding of aid money, to force the right- wing Laotian Thailand negotiations with the neutralist and pro-Com- munist factions. There is no indication that this point of difference 'has been re- solved, but the pledge of immedi- ate assistance made in Washing- ton to Thai Foreign Minister Thanat Khoman has eased Thai- land's fears on one part: it .need not rely now solely on the South- east Asia Treaty Organization, for itsdefense.

Because of the length of the dis- cussion, the Berlin review pre- sumably went further than a mere repetition of previous U.S. complaints over Soviet harass- ment tactics in the air corridors to the isolated city.

Johnson is schedul- ing political campaigning likely to take him into a dozen key states before the November election. The vice president is understod to have agreed to be the principal speaker at four party fund-raising rallies to be. chosen by national chairman John M. Bailey. Johnson already has filled this role in New Jersey and Minnesota. As matters stand, Johnson runs second only to Ken- nedy in campaign speaking invitations. Kennedy, who spoke Saturday night at a dinner in Miami Fla., apparently is going to limit this aspect of Udall Says Expansion Of Park Possible Secretary .of the Interior Stew- art L. Udall. told "newsmen in Oklahoma 'City yesterday that Platt National Park may be en- laiged; according to an Associ- ated-Press, dispatch. Udall gave no indication- of the extent: or location of any con- templated expansion. Platt Supt.- Johnwill Faris told the NEWS 'this morning that he has received no official informa- tion ,on any addition to the park. The. park, originally a 640-acre was designated a national park in .1906: Since that time. various small additions have been made to bring the present area to 912 acres!

Here are some he cited: Stomach cancer: one New York clinic, handling both early and ad- vanced cases, has a cure rate of 27 per cent. With earlier detec- tion, some 35 per cent of the pa- tients could be cured, and this may be a conservative estimate. Lung cancer: National Cancer Institute figures show one lung cancer patient out of four survives five years. Dr. Heller says it could be 35 per cent or one in three Breast cancer: the survival rate is increasing every year and some clinics report survivor rates up to 85 per cent. Dr. Heller esti- mates the potential for the nation is to save four out of every five women stricken, on the basis of present knowledge. Uterine cancer: since cancer of the uterus or womb is detectable at a very early stage. Dr. Heller believes 100 per cent of the cases can be cured. Skin cancer: this, too, should be 95 to 100 per cent curable. his political activities. Johnson is expected to accept invitations to mpke campaign ap- pearances in New York, Pennsyl- vania, Ohio, Illinois, Michigan and several Western states, in- cluding California. The vice president already is billed as the speaker for a Demo- .cralic dinner in Chicago being ar- ranged by Mayor Richard .Daley'. Johnson will make a nonpolitical appearance as speaker for the annual Alfred E. Smith dinner in New York this fall. The President's decision to use his elected standby for some intensive campaigning evidently will give Johnson the chance to get better acquainted with poli- ticians in states where he would need support if he should bid for the party's top nomination in 1968. The vice president is taking ad- vantage of this opportunity to minimize the tage of Texas sec- tionalism given him by some in ths past and to present himself as a man of broad national and international viewpoints.. In this role he is avoiding per- sonalities in criticisms of Repub- licans. He is stressing what he calls his own party's responsibil- ity to rise above partisanship in tile conduct of the nation's affairs.
