On Monday, it will be a year since the Communists began sealing the 26Vss miles of their border through the city with ce- ment, bricks, barbed wire and steel. Signs accumulated of growing nervousness among the Commu- nists about the wall. Saturday a Soviet soldier was perched atop the Brandenburg Gate.' A West Berlin policeman said he had seen a light machinegun there too. Usuaully, the wall is manned only by police and troops'of the East German satellite regime. "Provocations" The Communists-fired off a se- ries of diplomatic notes to the United States, Britain and France about the situation in Berlin. One set came from Moscow. It ac- cused West Berlin and West Ger- man authorities of plotting "seri- ous new provocations" along the wall. Another set of notes went out from the East German satellite government. These included a protest against the visit to'Berlin by Henrieh Luebke, president of the West German Federal Repub- lic. Luebke arrived Friday for the anniversary, aboard a U. S. Air Force plane. The Communists contend West Berlin is not part of the federal republic, he no right to be in the. city., Nervousness about the wall and what might happen on its anni- versary was shared in West Ber- lin, Police here were keeping peo- ple back from the Western side of the wall. They were under or- ders to let no trouble start that the Communists could use as an excuse for a crisis. On Monday, there will be three minutes of silence at noon, with lights set at red. The free- dom bell will toll from atop West Berlin's City Hall, but not the church bells. Protestant and Ro- man Catholic leaders decided this would be inadvisable. Churches Ball; Walter Sickert, head of the trade union organization in West Berlin, called this disap- ipointing and incomprehensible and appealed to Bishop Otto Di- head of the Evangelical Church in Berlin, to change his mind. The bishop already said that if the West Berlin church bells toll on- a 'political occasion, the Communist authori- ties might put churches hi the East under pressure to toll the bells for a Communist holiday.

(Continued on Two) Republicans Hurl Blast At JFK; "Sub-Par" Economics Are Target WASHINGTON (AP) Con- gressional Republicans contended Saturday that economic recovery under President Kennedy has been sub-par. Some of them called for immediate tax cuts. President George Meany of the AFL-CIO, also renewed his plea for a tax reduction 'as :one measure "to prevent a fifth post- war recession." The Senate-House GOP leader- ship suggested in a statement that Kennedy hadn't examined the figures when he told an -Aug. 1 news conference he was willing to compare the record wider his administration with "the reces- sion which was in effect when I took office." The .Republican; .group inter- preted this as a challenge to com- pare the 1958-1960 recovery, under former President Dwight D. Ei- senhower with the 1961-62 re- covery under Kennedy. "It is not easy to'see why the Presiden- should have invited this comparison for he must know that the recovery'since February 1961 has been .a weak one: by almost any sensible the GOP statement is a debate he cannot Sen. Clifford .P. Case, R-N.J., said on- a taped television pro- gram that the present tax struc- ture "puts a brake on the econ- omy." Case said-an immediate tax cut would -business to make new-investment, would give the people confidence in the government's .-willingness to-take effective counter a po- tential recession. Kennedy is expected to an- nounce in a-nationally televised and broadcast', speech -Monday night a decision1 on .whether to ask for such a tax cut.'There have been some indications that-the President might suggest some oth- er for the economy he has said doesn't" satii. fy him.' Meany, who conferred with Ken- nedy at.the White House on -Fri- day, said a tax reduction is just one of a number of; steps- needed to stimulate the economy. He set forth his views in a let- ter to Charles R. Sligh Jr., -execu- tive vice president of the National Association of Manufacturers. The two have been conducting a public debate over the nature of steps which should be1 taken to spur the economy. public and private actions are now needed to prevent a fifth postwar "recession in the short run, and to create the basis for sustained job and business growth for the long Meany wrote. government role must now be a major one. Most important, a .tax reduction.of a kind that quick- ly and .substantially, stimulates consumer' sales is essential. Concurrently', public works ex- pansion is imperative.

Hotter Than The Congo Egg Friers Cheer A Lulu As Thermometer Blows Top The NEWS has done its bit for science. A .story in Thursday's edition on an attempt to fry an egg on downtown, sidewalk has helped to foster a rash of egg cookers. We can report that at least one attempt was. evidently successful Miss Patty McGann deposited an egg on a local tennis court (placed well out of the .way so 'a hustling player wouldn't' slip) and pro- ceeded to let the sun do its duty. And the sun did just that, Reliable observers.later, report- ed the looking, was-cooked. Miss McGann, with determi- nation and has done her work well -Dedicated NEWS re- searchers proved that an egg wouldn't cook on a sidewalk, at least not in front of- the" news- paper. But, Mist .McGann has demon- strated for generations yet to come that an egg will indeed cook on a tennis courts. It is likely that seasoned tennis play- ers have known this fact for some time. The weather was perfect for egg frying Saturday. In fact, some said you could have stewed chickens.. The temperature climbed to 107 degrees, a new high for this year, but still a shade below the 109 that marked the. climax-ol the withering 1950 hot spell, the last time Ada underwent such roasting. It was still indescribably hor- rible outside at 5 p.m., with the thermometer-hovering1 at US'de- grees.- Visiting Associated Press writer Saul Pett, in Ada gather- big'information'for a story on Sen.

Simultaneously, the :United States .strongly rejected Satur- day a Soviet diplomatic, note pro- testing- alleged Western.. provoca- tions connected with the year-old, Berlin. The U.S. response labeled 'the Soviet note "an -attempt to; dis- tract world attention from 'the fact that Aug. 13 (Monday) is the first anniversary of the -wall which divides the city today." U. S. authorities, tended to link the. space flight and the Moscow outpouring on Berlin as -a propa- ganda spectacle launched by the Kremlin to cover' .up lack of ac- tion on the German issue. From this, they concluded that the Soviet Union is" not likely to follow through .'quietly with any hard action- which could ignite the potentially .explosive Berlin sit- uation. It was noted that the Moscow protest made no mention of Pre- mier Khrushchev's proposed peace treaty with East. Germany. U. S. strategists say that .while such a treaty in: itself might not set off armed, conflict: over Ber- lin, it could have a; serious effect on the touchy situation there if the Reds try. to use it to oust Western troops.
