U.S. officials are becoming dis- couraged about breaking the dead- lock, but intend to go on trying for a while. Secretary of State Dean Rusk held a lengthy meeting Wednesday with Soviet Ambassador Anatoly Dobrynin but failed 'again to gel Moscow to work out a Berlin ac- cess agreement without demand- ing withdrawal of Western forces from Berlin at the same time. The East-West dispute presently overshadows very serious differ- ences among the Western allies as to what should be negotiated with the Soviets, if negotiations ever become possible. The United States favors a 13-nation author- ity to contEol access routes to West Berlin. West Germany is opposed. A compromise seems likely, and Rusk is due to meet with West German Ambassador Wilhelm Grewe in a day or so to talk about resolving the differences. But, un- less the prospect of serious nego- tiations with the Soviet Union opens up, the 'prospective U.S.- German agreement-will contribute nothing toward a Berlin settle- ment. However it- may contribute toward an improve- ment in relations between- the Kennedy administration and Ger- man Chancellor Konrad Adenauer. -Easing of Bonn-Washington ten- sions probably will' not -contribute to the betterment of Paris-Wash- ington relations. There seems at the moment to be a loss of con- fidence between top leaders of the two allied countries, due to very substantial policy differences. These include conflicting aims for Western Europe and the Western alliance. Rusk and French Ambassador Herve Alphand met Monday for a long, rambling discussion of Fran- co-American difficulties, and they are expected to have another talk in the immediate future. French Presidet Charles de Gaulle considers that President Kennedy is following. an unwise course in tackling an impossible task in sounding out the Soviets on a Berlin deal. Kennedy has taken the position that the United States must explore every possi- bility of avoiding a war over Ber- lin, regardless of what the Allies think. Rusk's meeting with Dobrynin illustrated the limitation which disputes in the Western camp im pose on the probing. Rusk was able to talk about access only in very general terms, associates said, because he felt he had to keep the Berlin discussion within the limits of agreed Western pol icy.

Raymond Gary conceded defeat today in his Democratic race for governor against W. P. Bill Atkinson. But this did not stop the recounting of ballots in Oklahoma County, and this closest of all gubernatorial races in Oklahoma .was in a spin as it neared the finish line. Gary telephoned from Madill he was ready to close ranks behind the Democratic nominee Atkinson giving up his burning desire to become the first Oklaho- ma governor ever to serve two terms.

With 76 of the state's 77 counties fully recounted and Oklahoma County about half finished, Atkinson's victory margin had swelled to 965.

Raymond Gary, conceding victory in the Democratic governor's race to W. P. Bill Atkinson, called on party members to join in sup- porting the winner. But the former governor refused to despite recount results, that vote tabulation in the May 22 runoff was completely free of er- ror. Gary said in his statement: "According to the official re- count, Atkinson is the winner of the Democratic nomination for governor.
