The White House meeting was on the schedule lor midmorning. Thompson plans to leave here Sunday and spend a day and a half in New York on personal busi- ness before flying back to the Soviet capital by the mid- dle of next week. Kennedy was expected to emphasize to Thompson who may then have opportunity to present the view to Premier Khrushchev, that the United States is deeply interested in finding a solu- Voters Have Two Weeks To Register Pontotoc County voters have two more weeks in which to regis- ter for the election. upcoming primary Registration is now open for voters who aren't legally register- ed in the county.

The heart of the matter as the Kennedy administration leaders see it is that the'Soviet govern- ment must accept the presence of the Western powers in West Ber- lin and their rights of unhindered access to the city. If Russia- is willing to do business on thai basis, some officials feel that a settlement could be .worked out. Thompson came to Washington early last week with Secretary ol State Dean Rusk and other offi- cials who had attended the open- ing of the Geneva disarmamenl conference in March. Rusk anc Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei A. Gromyko used the occasion for a series of meetings in Geneva on the East-West dispute over Berlin. Their only known agreement i-as that the U.S.-Soviet talks, probing the possibility of a Berlin agreement, should be continued. The talks actually began last Sep- tember when Rusk and Gromyko met at the United Nations. They were continued during the winter in discussions held by Thompson and Gromyko in Moscow.

Biomedical experts of the Na- tional Aeronautics and Space Ad- ministration reported this today during a detailed symposium on the Marine lieutenant colonel's three-orbit flight of last Feb. 20.

His doctors said that even un- der this voluntary Glenn showed no signs of nausea, dizzi- ness, impairment of equilibrium, or other evidence of physical dis- orients tion. The closest Glenn came to feel- ing disoriented was when his slow- down rockets fired as he headed over the West Coast enroute to his impact at sea. He said this firing "produced the sensation that I was accelerating back to- ward he recognized it as only an illusion. His highest pulse beats a experienced when the first of his two parachutes opened.. But the doctors said, that Glenn's quickened pulse rates at various times were all "within ac- ceptable physiological limits." Dr. William K.

Douglas did.--say it's possible that Glenn's flight was too short- to, produce detectable effects "or such effects have not yet become evident."

Kennedy Wins Bic Senate Approval 0 U.N. Financing Aid Coalition Presses Through Compromise On Aid Plea WASHINGTON Senate has given lopsided approval to President Kennedy's plea for authority to extend million in aid to. the financially, troubled United Nations. Through a long legislative day Thursday a coalition of Democrats and Republicans beat back efforts to limit the President's authority. What emerged for consideration by the House was a compromise measure much to the administation's liking. Passed 70 to 22, it would permit Kennedy to either lend the United Nations the money on his own terms or buy U. N. bonds bearing 2 per cent interest, repayable over 25 years. Attached is the condition that all U.S. loans above million must be matched by bond pur- chases by other U.N. member-na- tions. This isn't likely to tie Ken- nedy's hands. Sen. John Spark- man. D-Ala., floor manager for the other'nations already have agreed to buy more than million worth. A ringing declaration by Senate Republican leader Everett M.

Dirksen had sponsored the com- promise jointly with the Senate Democratic leader, Mike Mans- field of Montana. While the proposal may be in Cor rougher going in the House, Senate Democratic and Republi- can leaders were confident the Treasurer's Told To Pay Legislators .'OKLAHOMA CITY Treasurer William A. Burkhart was told by the attorney general's office 'today to' continue paying legislators "unless and until you are .enjoined from doing so by an order of a court of competent jur- isdiction." Fred Hansen, acting attorney general, brushed aside Burkhart's contention he possibly should stop paying lawmakers because the legislature is not apportioned ac- cording, to the Constitution. The treasurer said last week he would withhold the legislators' pay until advised'on the issue. How- ever, his statement came only a few days after monthly checks- were, sent out. Transport Plans Hit Roadblock WASHINGTON Kennedy's plans to streamline transportation on land, sea and air are likely to run into a slow detour.. The'big roadblock is time. The proposals, submitted Thurs- day in a message to Congress, contained far-reaching suggestions requiring preliminary action by five House committees before they-can come to a vote in the House. Time Problem Rep. Oren Harris, D-Ark., chair- man of the House Interstate Com- merce Committee, said there was a possibility his committee may act this year on the proposal deal- ing with rate reductions.

Congress hopes to adjourn late in July or early August and it has many other major matters to consider. Chairman Warren G. Magnu- son promised that-the Senate In- terstate Committee .would consid- er the proposals but said nothing about the likelihood of action this year. Kennedy's transportation tax proposals could be'the-first facet of his complex program to be acted on in the House. Quick Action Democratic leaders were consid- ering incorporating at least some of these into a bill extending Ko- rean wartime excise taxes, which lacking congressional action would expire on July 1. The Ways and Means Committee's timetable called for quick action on this bill next month, so the House may consider it early" in June. Ken- nedy's recommendation for re- peal of the 10' per cent tax on surface transportation tickets, and reducing the rate to 5 per cent on airline tickets, was expected to be well received. There was considerable pressure for similar reductions when the Korean taxes were extended last year.
