This seems to be one of the chief results of the week- end White House conference between the. American and British leaders. Another reported result is agreement to soften as far as possible U. S. and British conflicts of interest over reshaping world-wide trade patterns on Britain's entry into the European'Common Market. In a communique Sunday Kennedy and Macmillan blamed the Soviet Union for the current series of U. S. nuclear weapons tests and pledged to work for disarma- ment and a ban on testing. The criticism of the Soviet Union was muted and indirect and apparently reflected a desire by Kennedy and House Gets Back On Job After Holiday WASHINGTON (AP) The House knuckles down to work to- day after a 10-day Easter vaca- tion, while the Senate plods along with its debate over a bill to pre- vent racial discrimination in voter literacy tests. No major bills were ticketed for -immediate consideration in the House, but before the end of the week leaders hope to bring up a bill urged by President Kennedy to set up a private corporation to own and operate a communica- tions satellite system. Before the week ends Senate leaders reportedly plan to initiate a move to clamp a time limit on the debate that began last Wed- nesday on the voter literacy the administration's principal civil rights measure. The bill, strongly opposed by its Southern foes, would exempt any- one education from having to- take, a state literacy test to qualify as a voter in presidential and congressional elections. The first step in involking the Senate's anti-filibuster rule is filing of a debate limitation-petition signed by 16 senators. Once such a petition is filed, it automatically is put to a vote one hour after'the Senate meets on the second day thereafter. Its adtoption requires a two-thirds majority of senators voting. A two-thirds majority never has (Continued on Two) Sunday's Quiet On Traffic Scene Sunday was a quiet day on the MacmiUan to keep on good terms with Khrushchev. The summit maneuver presum- ably reflects the same attitude and is pointed toward future weeks rather.than an immediate heads of government meeting. In fact it was learned that one ob- jective Kennedy and Macmillan have in mind is to establish a pattern of talking with Khrush- chev occasionally without having to have a big formal conference. "They, think it should be possi- one well-informed diplomat explained, "to have more flexi- bility in summit get together from time to time without having a huge internation- al circus. 'This was brought out in the communique hi a less 'direct manner. Kennedy and Macmillan, it said, "reaffirmed their willing- ness to consider meetings of heads of government whenever there is an indication that such meetings would serve the inter- ests of peace and understanding, and in this respect they took note of the opinion recently expressed by Chairman Khrushchev." British. information denied that plan to rush off to Moscow and British and Ada traffic scene. No traffic charges were filed and no accidents recorded on city streets. In fact. only one case was handled Monday morning in Muni- cipal Court. Kenneth Joe Lyda, 20, 220 South Cherry, was fined ?20 for assault. The complaint against Lyda was signed by J. G. Boatwright. The offense took place at the Ada Youth Center. The traffic accident toll for April remains at 20. American officials' both said the present moment is not ripe for summitry. The statement .did, however, .open the door to new series of top-level East-West "talks, involving two, three, or four men depending on the nature of the problem, Khrushchev's reaction will be watched with interest. Khrushchev told American pub- lisher Gardner Cowles in a recent interview in Moscow that he thought a summit mestiflg should De carefully prepared. Since he has promoted summit meetings in the past regardless of preparation many observers considered his stand a reversal of policy, put- ting him closer to the traditional position. of Kennedy and' former President Dwight D. Eisenhower. The communique, seemed to east U.S.-British .terms in several respects. It declared readiness to consider a number of meetings with Khrushchev. The only stated condition was that there should, be an indication that the meetings would "serve the interests of peace and understanding." Macmillan left here hailing British-American partnership in the Common Market. In their weekend talks Kenne- dy, and Macmillan covered efforts (Continued on Page T.wo) FOSSIL G.

Eventually, though, as he' be- gan to1 understand. the meaning and history of the things he found, he began to hang onto them. Hence the present collection. Key Point A fossil, Anderson will' tell you, is "any recognizable organic structure, or imprint of such structure, .preserved in the geo- logical past."

Rockefeller may'be' facing a bigger re-election, threat from party conservatives in. New York than he seems willing to admit. is one of the bright spots Democrats have been able to field out of a weekend which brought Ihe announcement of Democratic Mayor Robert F. Wagner of New York City that he .will not seek party's nomination to oppose Rockefellers re-election! The Conservative Party, Inc., announced, last week that 'it-will oppose Rockefeller and Republi- can Sen. Jacob K. Javits, who is up for re-election, at'.the.GOP con-, vention in September. Failing the conservatives, will try-to get enough signatures ,o win places on the ballot in November.

Associates say that both Rocke- feller .and Javits minimize this which started earlier in'the year _among Republican conservatives who don't like what they -.regard as the liberal" view- point of the. two. 'It is evident, however, that'Sen. Kenneth B.' who might be opposed-by Wagner for re-election, in 1964, takes a- much more serious view of the-incipient conservative revolt.

Only, under the special .conditions that prevailed, the wood was replaced, grain by grain, fiber by fiber, by deposits from the mineral-bearing water in which the tree lay.

As soon as the units were .with- drawn this morningi European settlers defiantly drove into the restricted area despite an earlier warning that security forces might fire on violators of the new restrictions.

Then he added with a smile: "I don't know how widely that view is shared here."

There was more .laughter when he added: "And "some say the events of this April also marked a turning point." From that ref-, erence to the. steel-price battle, Kennedy went on to. observe'that he hoped this April would indeed have been a turning point in "the sense that it may have awakened wider knowledge of the necessity for understanding -between busi- ness, government and labor.
