But the Commonwealth states- men took the action on the firrr understanding that Britain will take account of Commonwealth fears and seek a better deal for Britain's Commonwealth partners when negotiations with the six Common Market countries are re- sumed in two weeks. With Reservations A communique, issued after an unhappy 10-days of wrangling, catalogued various reservations expressed by the Commonwealth leaders. The communique said the Com monwealth prime ministers trust- ed that a closer association be- tween Britain and Europe "would not be allowed, as it developed, to 'weaken the cohesion of the Commonwealth or. its influence for peace and progress in the world." Talks End The lengthy document was is- sued at the end of summit talks between 16 countries of Britain's alliance. It was preceded by a marathon dispute over Britain's proposal to link up with Europe. Almost every one of Britain's partners ex- pressed fears and anxieties that the project would hurt their old- time trading arrangements and political unity.

Before the meeting Lyons talked with several of the league officers. Pictured with Lyons above are Mrs. Eugene Jones, Ada, left, president of the Ada League of Women Voters, and Mrs. Harvey Price, on the state board of the league of women-voters. (NEWS Staff Lyons Discusses Roads; Money various Commonwealth leaders had expressed "the economic points of special concern to their respective countries and the ex- tent to which their interests had not so far been met" in the Com- mon Market negotiations. A key passage of the communi- que said: "The prime ministers expressed the readiness of their govern- ments to join in comprehensive international efforts by all avail- able means to expand world trade both in primary products and manufactures. Contribution Seen "They recognized the important contribution which the European Economic Community and other regional groups could make in such efforts. "They hoped that the general objectives set out above would be shared by the members of the community." The declaration said British ministers will "support a fresh and vigorous approach to the ne- gotiation of international com- modity agreements." Met Demands This met demands voiced by Frank D. Lyons Jr., popular director of the Oklahoma State lighway Department, talked to a League of Women Voters meet- ng Tuesday night about highways and money. No doubt about it, he convinced his hearers of two ideas: it's hard to understand how roads are financed and-.Oklahoma needs a thorough study and plan for the future road-building. The meeting was a special ban- quet program -for the general public. Mrs. Eugene Jones, presi- dent of the League, presided over the meeting held in the ballroom_ of the "Memorial .Student Union' Building at- East Central State College, Nearly two hundred at- tended. Lyons emphasized frequently during the talk that was delight- fully sparked with 'humor 'that money is needed to build a better system. But there are other des- perate needs also; He especially urges a complete study of state roads and needs for' roads. He acknowledged that such a study will not immediately solve all our problems, but from it we should expect a classifi- cation and priority system to emerge, he said. "Otherwise (that is, without the1 your dice rolling method of going after roads and all the hard feelings and the politics will still be _ "Lyons' word of advice on attitudes toward roads, however: politics 'Politics is an integral part (of highway, pro- grams) because it is public build- ing and we must have politics." In explaining the financing of the road program of Oklahoma, the director said: "There are two sources of state road building dollars. By far the larger of -these sources is the Highway User Tax, of which the department gets a little more than one-third. Other state highway dollars come to us from the General .Revenue fund." Then, "federal-aid enters into the picture all up and down the line." There are four classes of high- ways: Interstate highways, built with 90, per cent federal funds and 10 per cent state; and urban Congress Polishes Resolution Cuba's Target Of Statement On Aggression WASHINGTON (AP) Congressional leaders of both parties finish work to- day on a resolution.declar- ing the United States will use troops if it must to. resist Communist, aggression in this hemisphere. Three committees meet to polish the language of the resolu- tion and have it ready for passage Thursday by the Senate and House. Suitable To All Aim of the declaration is to.ex- press a common Cuban policy that both Congress and President Ken- nedy can accept. It will also, congressional lead- ers believe, carry a warning to Moscow and Havana that the, na- tion is behind the President in any action he feels must be taken in reply to the Communist .military buildup in Cuba. In its present form, the reso- lution pretty-much echoes Ken. nedy's press conference1 statement on Cuba last Thursday.

After 'that he must hold his fol- lowers in line in Parliament where resistance is building up against the terms he so far has negotiated.

More Trouble There was some trouble on the ground also between the U.S. Army and the Russians over pas- sage of an Army convoy to Berlin. The convoy reached Berlin over three hours late. A mysterious explosion along the Communist wall in Berlin Tuesday night drew a unit of Sovi- et soldiers to investigate. The ex- plosion shook the area near the Brandenburg Gate. What Was Found? The soldiers soon withdrew and West police could not see whether they found anything. East German guards usually in- vestigate such blasts. This was recent explosion near the Brandenburg Gate. A company of Soviet tanks faced American tanks at Check- point Charlie on one occasion last fall. Otherwise, Soviet troops have been seen along the wall only in 'twos or threes. Many Explosions West Berlin police heard several other explosions during the night and saw fire-briefly light up the area across the border from the northern suburb of Frohnau. Soviet statements on Berlin and West Germany drew prompt re- plies from Washington and Bonn.
