The U.S.-Soviet exploratory talks have gone full circle without agreement. Rusk returned Wednesday night from Geneva and a new round ot meetings with Soviet Foreign Min- ister Andrei A. Gromyko. He was expected to tell Kennedy that the Soviet attitude on Berlin seems to be toughening but that there is no indication of imminent crisis. During the next few days Ken- nedy, Rusk and other administra- tion policymakers will be occupied with another issue of great what new pro- posals the United States may make for reducing inspection re- quirements for a nuclear test ban treaty with the Soviet Union. Rusk and other Cabinet mem- bers meet today for a discussion of this problem based on new scientific information recently an nounced by the Defense Depart- ment. Friday Kennedy will meet at the White House with 10 or 12 key advisers in the hope that a final decision can be reached quickly. In London, British officials said Wednesday that-the new proposals will be presented to the Geneva Disarmament Conference within two weeks. U.S. officials thought the action might be taken even more quickly. Foreign Secretary Lord Home British Turn Down Appeal Of Red Spy LONDON (AP) British Court of Appeal today rejected convicted spy Robert A. Soblen's plea he be set free in Britain. Lawyers for the 61-year-old psy- chiatrist contended his detention in prison is unlawful and that he should be freed in Britain under a writ of habeas corpus. The British government contest- ed the appeal on the ground that sentence of life im- prisonment in the United States as a .Soviet entered -the country "illegally and expelled. The hearing opened before three British judges shortly after the Israeli Interior Ministry in Jeru- salem rejected Soblen's applica- tion to be admitted to Israel as an immigrant. Soblen's Israeli law- yer, Ari Ankorion, was expected to appeal the ministry's ruling to the Israeli Supreme Court. Soblen, who has leukemia and reportedly has only a few months to live, jumped bail in New York and fled to Israel late last month. He entered Israel on a dead brother's Canadian passport and the Israeli government ex- pelled him July 1 as an illegal im- migrant. He was put aboard an El Al Is- raeli airliner for New York. He slashed a wrist and plunged a knife into his abdomen. He was removed from the plane In London and hospitalized. He is now almost recovered from his wounds. Soblen cabled Ankorion to try again to get permission for him to enter Israel under the 1952 Law of Return which allows most Jews to claim a home in Israel. Soblen also applied for political asylum in Britain. told the British Parliament terms for a nuclear test-ban accord may be eased, but he said on-site in spections still will be needed. Meanwhile, the U.S. disarma- ment chief, William C. Foster, dis- cussed atomic test-ban safeguards at a closed session of the Senate Disarmament subcommittee. The chairman, Sen. Hubert H. Humph- rey, D-Minn., reported that Foster had said the United States has not yet decided whether to modify' the safeguard proposals and still be- lieves on-the-spot inspections are needed to prevent cheating. And, in another nuclear develop- ment, the U.S.. government kept a secrecy curtain around a U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey report Hot Show The "vast wasteland" can cause plenty of trouble when It catches fire. The Dale Deering family of Ada has had personal experi- ence. Tuesday evening, the Deer- Ings were peacefully watching TV when smoke began io boil from the set. Soon, the entire house was fogged by the smoke. Three fire trucks were 'dis- patched to -the scene at 226 West Twenty-first Street. They finally managed to ex- tricate the set from the house.

The charges stem from the May 25 drowning of Alta Faye Taylor, 17, Marlow. Both boys are students at East Central State College, Miss Taylor drowned May 25 one-half mile northeast of the on a French atomic explosion in the Sahara Desert May 1. The re- port contains technical data on detection of the distant blast, which bears on the current test- ban discussion. It was .understood that some details may be dis- closed later. Rusk flew to Geneva last week to sign accords on the neutraliza- tion of Laos. This provided the opportunity' for the latest series of discussions with Gromyko on the Berlin dispute. Rusk is under- stood to have stressed heavily the U.S. position, that withdrawal of American, British, -and French forces from West Berlin as de- manded by the Soviet Union is completely nonnegotiable. Gromyko is understood to have argued that West Berlin consti- tutes a base for the North Atlantic Eastern Is Last Holdout Goldberg Meets Negotiators To Settle Strike WASHINGTON (AP) Representatives of Eastern Air Lines, neers and its its flight pilots engi- meei Civil War Threatens In Algeria As Bellas Troops Sweep Forward griTss-i- here today with Labor De partment officials'in an at tempt to bring labor peace to a third major airline.

Peruvian Junta Hails Departure Of Envoy LIMA, Peru Ambas- sador James Loeb took off for Washington today to report on the military seizure of power, anc the junta made it clear it was glad to see him leave Peru. A statement labeled semi-offi- cial but emanating from the for- eign ministry said Loeb's depar- ture would tend to ease "existing tension between the two coun- tries." It accused him of helping to create "a climate of misunder- standing in which cut off aid to Peru after the mili- tary's coup last week. Asked about the charges, Loeb told newsmen at the airport, "I have heard about the statement and the foreign ministry will deny it." He said he hoped to return to Lima after he reports personally to President Kennedy.

The ministry said Ecuador and Salvador have joined Venezuela, Colombia, Costa Rica, Honduras, Panama and the Do- minican Republic in demands for the meeting.

Estes has since been declared bankrupt. McClellan gave no details of the check and receipt juggling, which he said was just a manipulation to provide phony evidence that pur- ported land sale and lease-back arrangements between Estes and the farmers were bona fide.

In a story written for today's edition by Sports Editor Walter Robertson and. Roy Edwards, the News said .that neither Southwest Conference nor Texas Tech offici- als were willing to discuss the matter freely. However, the story noted, both conference and college officials had admitted knowledge of an in- vestigation. The News named the two Texas high school players involved as Johnny Agan, a two-time all-state halfback from Albany, the Class A champion and Edwin Hall, an- other outstanding Texas schoolboy from Class B Eden.

A factional split shattered attempts by provisional Algerian leaders to establish a stable regime. Administrative work appeared to be at a virtual stand- still. Thousands of Europeans who stayed.on through months of .terror before independence, converged on docks and airports to get out. Two passenger liners came to carry refugees to France. Although the situation-was marked by confusion and in some cases fragmentary reports, these were the high- lights: Dissident Deputy Premier Ah- med Ben Bella appeared to.have the upper hand in western and eastern Algeria. Ben Bella re- turned to Oran, western Algerian metropolis, after a triumphant trip Wednesday to Tiaret, 150 miles southwest of Algiers. Forces loyal to him. were -seemingly, in control of Constan tine and .Bone in eastern Algeria. Bloody chases were reported Wednesday in Con- stantlne. Deputy Premier Belkacem Krim, a Berber leader and signer of the peace accords with France, held forth in the Kabylie Moun- tains east of Algiers. He de- nounced Ben Bella and called for a massive rallying of support across the nation. In Algiers, there was no sign of the disintegrated provisional gov- ernment of Premier.

From the Moorish-style summer palace Premier Ben Youssef Ben Khedda warned that'the danger of civil war was real and pleaded for unity. A group of ministers of Ben Khedda's government quit the capital and set up headquarters in the Kabylie Mountains, 65 miles east of Algiers, amid loyal Berber guerrillas of Wilaya (zone) No. 3. They called on the population and on the guerrillas who "fought for independence to organize resist- ance to Ben Bella "in every town, village and hamlet." Regular army troops and guer- rillas loyal to Ben Bella appeared to control three-fourths of the U.S. Thor Blows Up On Pad In Pacific HONOLULU Thormij- sile blew up and burned on its launch pad Wednesday night as the United -States failed for the third time in four tries to explode a high altitude nuclear device over tiny Johnston Island. Cause of the missHs failure was not known and there was no im- mediate word whether the Thor was deliberately destroyed. The Atomic Energy Commission in Washington made. the following announcement: "The 'Thor .booster "designed to carry aloft "nuclear devrer.for a '.high, altitude-test, jn-thejcurrent the Pacific .was destroyed and burned on the launch pad tonight at about p.m. (Hawaiian .Standard "There was no nuclear detona- tion. There was no immediate re- port of injury to personnel. Fur- ther details will be furnished as soon as possible." The failure was another setback to U.S. missile prestige. The shot was to have been one of the last of the 'current Pacific test series which began three months .ago Wednesday. When President Kennedy orig- inally announced the series he set a time limit of two to three months. The only successful shot in the nigh altitude series was the big- gest and highest on July 8. That explosion of a thermonuclear de- vice was. detonated 210 miles over Johnston Island and lit up the Pacific from New Zealand to Ha- waii.
