S. Supreme Court decision to accept jurisdiction in a Tennessee apportionment dis- pute. The suit asks that the May 1 legislative primary elec- tions, be halted and all candidates for the House and Senate be forced to run at large. It urges this action on the ground there are no con- stitutional districts for holding legislative elections at present. As an alternative to the "at large" elections, it sug- gests a special session of the legislature to apportion according" to the Constitu- tion. Such a special session appar- ently would have to be held -within the next week or two. This is con- sidered unlikely.

(NEWS Staff Democrats Write Off School Bill WASHINGTON Ken- nedy administration appears to have written off for this year a school bill that had been designed to ease the problem of aid for church schools. Secretary of Welfare Abraham A. Kibicoff indicated this Thurs- day by failing to include the bill in a list of education measures the President is pushing for action on. The bill, a .broadening of the 1938 National Defense Education Act, was approved by the Senate Labor Committee last year and has been on the Senate calendar ready for debate since July 1961. The Senate Education subcom- mittee spent more hours working on this complex bill last year than on any other administration pro- posal. But Senate leadership sources confirmed today there were no plans now to call it up for at tempted passage in 1962. The controversial feature of the bill is a S375-million loan provision for construction of classrooms for specified subjects in parochial and other private schools. Administration lieutenants drew up this provision to ease the un- happiness of the church schools at being excluded from the lion general aid school bill passed by the Senate last year. At one point. Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield of Montana, said the defense education measure with its private school loan fea- ture would follow promptly after the general bill.

Khrushchev Rebuffs Plea On Test Ban LONDON Premier Khrushchev rebuffed today an American-British plea to join in speeding a treaty banning nuclear weapons tests, a qualified diplo- mat reported. Khrushchev, in a long reply to Prime Minister Harold Macmillan, described the Western move as propaganda, the informant said. President Kennedy and Macmil- lan last Tuesday published terms of a request that Bussia allow international inspectors to check any suspicious bangs. Soviet agreement, they said, would clear the way for an early test ban treaty, but Soviet refusal would mean the American series of nuclear tests will have to go forward later this month, as planned. Soviet Ambassador Alexander Soldatov delivered the premier's message to the Foreign Foreign Office spokesman de- clined to disclose its contents im- mediately. The Foreign Office spokesman said the message was between and words long and was in the Russian language. He said the Soviet government plans to publish it in the Moscow news- papers Saturday morning. Soldatov handed Khrushchev's reply to Sir Harold Caccia, per- manent undersecretary for foreign affairs. As soon as it was trans- lated it was hustled to Macmillan, weekending at his country resi- dence outside London. The informant did not indicate if Khrushchev submitted any sort of counterproposals in his mes- sage. .He said, entire tone of the Soviet note amounted to a turndown of the British- American request. Macmillan Tuesday sent a terse covering letter 'stressing to Khrushchev that the "object of verification (of suspicious explo- sions) is r.ot to increase suspicion but to dispel it." Khrushchev today, according to the source, dwelt at length on this question of East-West suspicion and distrust. He was said to have argued that'he conceded the right of the West to distrust Russian good faith. He said he assumed he had 'the same right to distrust Western intentions-. Yet, he ar- gued, these suspicions have not led the Soviet Union to submit ex- cessive and rigid demands for safeguards in a test ban treaty. guarded by Air Force policemen and dogs.

Break In Ranks But such a break in the ranks is something for which the adminis- tration has been angling ever since U.S. Steel, the.giant of the industry, started the move late Tuesday with announcement of a boost of a ton. f Most of the big steelmakers had gone along by the time of the news conference Wednesday, at which Kennedy denounced the ac- tion. But the President made it clear he hoped there would be holdouts and that the increase would not stick. Difficult And at a news conference in New York Thursday al which he defended his company's action as a necessary move in the country's interest, U.S. Steel's Chairman Roger M. Blough conceded "I don't know'how long we can main- tain our position.'' If Inland and Armco Steel, neither of which had taken a position at the time, did hot join in. It would make it. very difficult for Blough said under ques- tioning. Armco, another of the Big Ten of the industry, still had not taken a stand today. High Cost McNamara, in a brief statement at a news conference today, said that if the steel price increase fans out across the economy.the impact on defense costs .could come to a billion dollars a year. He said further that increased costs could affect the dollar bal- ance abroad and "We cannot ex- pect to maintain our forces over- seas if our trade balance does not improve." He was restating in new words some of the arguments Kennedy had advanced against.the price rise. Kennedy's Order McNamara said it the di- rection of Kennedy that the Penta- gon is looking' for "substitutes for steel. He said iron and steel prices have increased 90 per cent since 1947 while nonferrous metals have gone up only 40 per cent. Replying indirectly to one of Blough's arguments, McNamara said the amount of steel bought directly by the military is rela- tively small, most of it coming through contractors. "Unjustified" Blough, disagreeing with an es- timate by Kennedy that the de- fense cost could come to bil- jlion, estimated that 'on' the basis of direct Defense pur- chases of from 3 to Vfi million tons a year, the ?6 a ton increase would amount to only about holds a similar post at Vanoss.

S.-Soviet talks on the possibility of a Berlin settlement is expected to concentrate at the outset on the problem of guaran- teed access for Western powers between West Germany and Berlin. The.first session will be held here Monday by Secre- tary of State Dean Rusk and Soviet Ambassador Anatoly F. Dobrynin, The .United States set forth its ideas on the require- ments of an access agreement in an informal working paper submitted to Allied governments earlier this week in preparation for the talks. The U. S. proposal, circulated for allied reaction and comment, is understood to have stressed the need for guarantees by the Soviet Union of .unhindered access to West 'Berlin by surface and air routes. The possibility was raised that this could be arranged under an international authority that has operational'control of the supply 45th Officer Urges Study Of Americanism A 45th Division public informa- tion officer exhorted Pontotoc County teachers Thursday night to introduce their students to Americanism.

His theme was "The Russian Bear." He'traced the history of Russia through the- centuries and dwelt long on the rise of the Com- munist Party, in the U.S.S.R. and the world.

Informants said this position on the critical access issue was sub- stantially the same as that taken by Rusk in talks at Geneva last month with Soviet Foreign Minis- ter Andrei A. Gromyko. So far as could be learned from official sources, the United States still considers totally unacceptable a Soviet counterproposal for East German control of the supply lines under limited supervision of an international authority. Presumably, what Rusk wants to explore further is whether the Soviet Union acceptance of the concept of an international author- ity provides an opening to bring closer the.conflicting U.S. and So- viet positions closer together.- The Soviet proposal was hinged on a number of conditions aimed at obtaining the withdrawal of Western forces from West Berlin and winning recognition for the East German Communist regime.
