(NEWS Staff Senate Moves To Speed Action On Drug Safeguard Legislation WASHINGTON (AP) The Senate moved today toward prompt passage of a drug bill given a new push by President Kennedy. The bill, designed to strengthen against the sale of dan- gerous -or ineffective was- listed by Kennedy Wednesday as one of "five particularly impor- tant measures" on which Congress will be acting shortly. Others he referred to at his news conference were the farm 'bill, a constitutional amendment to outlaw, the poll tax in federal elections, the trade expansion- bill and the U.N. bond issue bill. Shortly after the drug bill was called up. in the Senate late Wednesday, quick agreement was reached on a limitation of debate that should bring vote be- fore the end of today's session. The bill, as first approved by Senate Judiciary Committee last month, fell short of what Ken- nedy asked. Since then, in the wake of the furor over the' seda- tive thalidomide, the committee has approved strengthening amendments. The legislation was introduced more than a year ago by Sen. Es- tes Kefauvcr, D-Tenn., chairman of the Senate Antitrust subcom- mittee, after a lengthy investiga- tion of the prescription drug in- dustry. Stripped from the bill by the Judiciary Committee were anti- trust provisions Kefauver con- tends are necessary to substan- reduce what he calls-exorbi- tant drug prices. Kefauver failed to win adminis- tration backing for these provi- sions, but he has re-offered them in modified form. His key amendment provides for compulsory licensing of prescrip- tion drug patents after three years when the price to the pharmacist represents a mark-up of 500 per cent or more over the factory cost. Licensees would have to pay royalties of 8 per cent on sales. In the safety area, Kefauver has an amendment giving the govern- ment authority to require the test- ing of new drugs on animals be- fore .they-are used in clinical test ing on humans. 'Sen. Thomas .J. had ready for introduction today a measure which would outlaw the sale and distribution of sleeping pills and pep .pills by 'all except drug companies, hospitals, clinics, public health 'agencies, doctors and pharmacists. It would estab- lish strict accounting and1 report- ing procedures. Adans To Hear Address From Missile Expert Joe D.

(API-Eastern Air Lines' employes crossed picket lines today as the- company put its entire jet fleet in the air, end- ing a 60-day-strike. For the first time in more- than 10 years, there were only 'three men in the cockpit, two pilots and one pilot-engineer. J. 0. Jarrard, vice president in charge of industrial relations, said Easter.n has replaced all striking employes and is proceeding to- ward full operation, scheduled for Sept. 13. Eastern said piston-engine flights will be restored Sept. 13, A spokesman said some of the less-profitable flights will be dropped, but did not say how many. Malcolm Maclntyre, EAL presi- dent, said last week that a stream- lining of service would mean to employes in all depart- ments would not be -recalled Sept. 13. Eastern's flight engineers struck June 23 over whether a .pilot or an engineer would1 occupy the third seat in jetliner cockpits when the crews are reduced from 'our men to. three. Flight'engineers agreed Wednes- day to binding.arbitration if East- ern and the pilots would concur. William Grogan, a vice president of the AFL-CIO Transport Work- ers Union, suggested arbitration. Grogan said the TWU wanted ,the strike-settled in the interest of furloughed stewards and stewardesses which the union rep- resents. The pilots made no com- ments. Eastern agreed June ar- bitration as recommended by President Kennedy, Jarrard said but the flight engineers ignored the request. "Obviously, Eastern couldn't settle on. the same terms they of- fered 60 days and million Jarrard added.

Bullets hit the tires but the cars were able to speed on. He's Not Worried De Gaulle, disdainful of his own safety, always travels in an ordin- ary French car, but security offi- cials said an attempt will be made now to get him to use a car with bullet-proof glass.

Sub Meeting Provides Peek At Warfare In Arctic WASHINGTON (AP) A hide: and-seek maneuver by two U.S. Vavy. atomic submarines under ifllar ice points to the way a deep and deadly war could be fought in the Arctic. President. Kennedy announced tie hitherto secret operation to a ews conference Wednesday, say- ng that the submarines Skate and eadragon had made "historic ehdezvous" under the ice, then surfaced through an opening at the North Pole. said Kennedy, "is the first time that two of our sub- marines have worked together in this manner under the arctic ice pack and I want to congratulate all of those involved in.this excep- tional technical feat." The 'submarine versus subma- rine operation started July 31 and concluded when the two ships sur- faced Aug. 2.' Navy experts'con- sider it a major tactical demon- stration that antisubmarine war- fare in the hostile and weird en- vironment of the ice-capped Arc- tic Ocean seems feasible in the event of- hostilities. Another phase- of submarine warfare, rocket-firing by submer-, sibles, creates urgent requirement for. Russia is beginning'to build and send to sea atomic submarines. One 'of the logical., .launching points for any Soviet submarine rocket attack on the United 'and Canada would be'the'Arctic'Ocean.' The U.S. Navy inaintaijis'a.bar- rier patrol across one. route, for Russian submarines into the At- lantic. That barrier extends east- ward from Greenland to Iceland and the Faroe Islands. But the Arctic. Ocean, on "which Russia borders, is wide open. If Russia 'should begin deploying rocket submarines under.the ice, the United States must create a defensive system. The only appar- ent means are attack submarines, perhaps sent out on weeks-long patrols to listen electronically un- der the new barrier line. the United States :had no actual experience in submarine hunting :in polar areas. Although' atomic subs have been- exploring and-mapping the ocean floor of the area since 1958, they have worked.singly and purely on ex- ploration, and crew training mis- sions. But on July. 31, the Skate, com- ing from the Atlantic and the Seadragon, from the .Pacific, ceived- radioed orders to start hunting each other. .-Navy, said this was a realistic operation, with each sub- marine using all its equipment and .technique .for evasion and duel between subma- rines .would occur in ac- tual, arctic engagement. The conditions "were unlike any- thing encountered in years of ac- tual and practice antisubmarine warfare. In the Arctic, pressure ridges of ice, extending downward as well as above the surf create inverted behind which-a submarine can hide.-The normal problem of penetrating thermal layers of water in verti- cal probes by sonar is complicated with the horizontal blocks imposed by pressure ridges and occasional bergs.

Soviet and American se- dans moved back and forth between East and West Ber- lin, indicating that for the moment at least there was no general interference with East-Wtst military traffic. A reliable source said an East Berlin 'official had told Communist erporters that his government does not intend to interfere with West- ern military but at ;the same .time insisted that Western Army sedans have no legal basis for going into East Berlin. U. S. Trip. During the night, U.S. Army cars made unopposed excursions into East Berlin, to test whether Moscow's abolition of the Soviet commandant's office would be followed by efforts to limit West- ern movements in the Communist this divided city. Wednesday, a Soviet convoy was told it must accept an American Army escort to the war memorial. The orders were issued by Maj. Gen. Albert Watson n, U.S. com- mandant 'in Berlin; J, The Bussians protested but went under escort to the memorial" and back.' A-U.S. Army spokesman would only confirm that the Soviet cars remained at the checkpoint for at least an hour. Watson explained that armored including American ar- mor, always go under escort -in West Berlin. The Russians began using ar- mored cars after West Berlin riot- ers stoned buses three nights in' a row, in protest against the death of an 18-year-old refugee, shot off the wall by East German police a week .ago. Today the Soviet cars were first reported blocked by three Ameri- can vehicles. Later, there was on one sedan parked crosswise 'in front of them. Three other sedans appeared ready, nearly an hour and a half after their arrival, to provide the escort. A spokesman said Wednesday a 45-minute delay was due to .the fact the escort was not ready. East German guards made no attempt to interfere with the American vehicles, U.S. au- thorities said it was still too early to conclude that harassing .meas- ures were not in the offing. No One U.S. Army vehicle crossed from West Berlin into the Com- munist sector just before midnight and returned without difficulty through Checkpoint Charlie, entry point through the Berlin Wall for military personnel. Two more U.S. Army: cars fol- lowed without meeting any delays. The Russians announced Wednesday they were-doing away with the office of city comman- dant.and transferring 'his duties "temporarily" to Gen. Ivan Yaku- commander for East-Germany, who has headquar- ters at Potsdam, just west of Ber- lin. Squeeze Is On Western officials viewed the ac- tion as a Communist effort to cut one more "slice of from Western occupation rights in. the campaign to force the allies -out of the city.' Communist propagan- da organs were expected to argue that the Soviets no longer needed a military authority in Berlin. and (Continued Page to partly cloudy thfa afternoon through Friday; Isolated afternoon and nifht tinudersbowen; a little cooler Borthweit toaight; low tonight northwest to 77 Kiutk; high Friday M-llz.
