Ada Evening News, The (Newspaper) - July 10, 1962, Ada, Oklahoma KHRUSHCHEV OFFERS NEW BERLIN PROPOSAL Soviet Suggests Smaller Countries Occupy West Zone MOSCOW (AP) Premier Khrushchev declared today that the war threat over Berlin has become "ever more .ominous" and proposed that Western troops there be replaced with a garrison of Norwegian-Danish or Belgian- Dutch troops plus Czech and Polish forces. The proposal was made after he had claimed much more powerful weapons than those of the United States, said the Soviet Union has developed an anti-missile mis- sile and declared Western "aggressors" would perish in a nuclear war. Khrushchev denounced the current series of Ameri- can nuclear tests as.a "challenge to mankind" and said further improvement of weapons by the Communist countries was now an "unavoidable necessity." He spoke on the second day of a World Peace Con- gress in the Kremlin. About delegates from 118 United States Brushes Off Latest Idea WASHINGTON Unit- ed States disclosed today that it has already rejected the latest public proposal by Soviet Premier Khrushchev for getting United States, British and French troops out of West Berlin. The State Department also blasted as "hypocrisy" Khrush- chev's criticism of American high- altitude nuclear explosions over the Pacific Ocean. A statement sharply reminded the world that the Russians broke the test ban and fired several high-altitude shots last fall. Khrushchev's Berlin proposal and his criticism of U.S. nuclear testing were covered in a speech made at a Peace Congress meeting in Moscow today. He said that troops, of the Big Three Western powers in Berlin should be replaced by either Nor- wegian and Danish or Belgian and Dutch forces plus forces of Czech- oslovakia and Poland. The first four nations mentioned are U.S. North Atlantic Treaty Organiza- tion allies while the, Czechs and Poles belong to the Soviet bloc. .Khrushchev said the new garri- son would be under the U.K 'flag.

It was the first time the Rus- sians have proposed posting forc- es of the smaller European Com- munist and Western powers in West Berlin in place of the Amer- ican, British and French garri- sons. The new plan obviously was an effort to get the big powers out of the way in Berlin and leave the Communists a freer hand. Proposing the substitution 'of troops, Khrushchev said: "If they don't agree to Norwegians and Danes, then let it be Belgians and Dutch." Khrushchev said "the hotbed of war danger in the heart of Europe is becoming ever more ominous" in Berlin. West Germany and its armed forces, he charged, "are already becoming the backbone of the ag- gressive forces of NATO." Mis statement on U.S. tests in the Pacific and the high-altitude hydrogen explosion Monday, was unexpectedly mild. Two speakers at the congress, a Chicago pro- fessor and a British Churchman, had charged the Soviet Union with part of the responsibility for re- sumption of tests by breaking a three-year moratorium. Khrusuchev said the major se- ries of tests of the United States were "a challenge to mankind." .High-altitude tests, he said, were "disregarding the fact that these experiments may have very dangerous consequences for the conditions of man's life."

(AP) A "switchboard" satellite rocketed into orbit today as a possible first step toward a space relay system for swift, worldwide trans- mission of radio, telephone and television signals.. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration announced at a. m. EST that the complex Telstar satellite was in orbit. It thundered away from Cape Can- averal at. a. m. atop a towering three-stage Thor- Delta rocket. Officials scheduled the first communications experi- ments with, the satellite tonight and if all goes well, American television viewers this evening will see the first live TV pictures beam-r ed by satellite. Within two weeks, Telstar may serve' as a relay point for the first live transatlantic television show and a number of telephone and radio experiments between the United States and -western Europe. The Thor-Delta, logging its 10th straight satellite-launching suc- cess, blasted off exactly on sched- ule.

City Council Gives Green Light To Traffic Survey By GEORGE GURLEY A comprehensive traffic survey and a community antenna system 'or television were the principal terns under discussion at Monday night's City .Council meeting. And, it now appears as if the city will have both of them. Council members voted, to co- iperate in a new and comprehen- sive traffic study for Ada which will be handled by personnel of Jie State Highway Department. They also gave approval, in prin- ciple, to'an-ordinance granting, a ranchise.for.'the installation and iperation of a community TV an- enna system. The traffic survey -however, had an easier time of it than the "cable system." Robert Dawson and Vern Brad- ley, representing the State High-' way Department, appeared to dis- cuss the traffic survey. Some months ago, the city, en- tered into a contract with Bill McCurdy, traffic consultant, for such a survey.'This study would have cost A contract was executed with contin- gent upon his securing federal funds for the survey. Under this plan, the city would have paid 30 per. cent of the cost of the survey by the federal government. It. now appears that McCurdy does not have the facilities at his disposal to make a survey which; fa the opinion of the Bureau of Public Roads, is sufficient to se- cure federal funds and meet the future needs of Ada. In the meantime, the state high- way, department came, forward offered to do the study. Their study would cost and the city would be responsible for 15 per cent of the cost. Thus, for less outlay, the city could secure a more extensive survey. Since the first contract was con- and the-remainder would be bonu tingent -upon. McCurdy securing federal participation and this is not forthcoming, it.left the way open for a new approach with the state. Dawson noted that the state was "not trying to cut 'McCurdy out" but he stressed that the state had facilities .at its command which were not available. to- McCurdy. He noted the study, would look well into the future and would be a "continuing" affair. McCurdy indicated he would have his. report ready-at the end of a six-month period. The state plans a more ambitious program. Dawson said that ordinarily the report, representing-four, phases, requires up to one year for' the first portions and a year later for the final portions for a total of two years. "I wonder if our traffic signals can last, two asked Coun- cilman Joe Bonar. City Manager J. B. Davidson then suggested that the portion of the 'report dealing with signal lights and. traffic control be han- dled first.. Dawson" indicated this could be done and a report on this phase of the study could be before the council in eight to ten months. Finally, councilmen agreed to execute a new "contract with the state, contingent upon study.and approval by the city attorney. Once the contract is executed, field work on the survey will get underway immediately. Bennett Story was the spokes- man on: behalf of Clear-Vue TV Inc. He was flanked by Robert Story and Clark Bass, -Durant banker. Story reviewed the events of a recent meeting when the council took.his proposal under study. He placed before the council a sam- ple ordinance authorizing franchise. (Continued on PagesTwo)
