United States probably will make a limited extension of its ban on nuclear weapons testing if nego tiations with theSoviet Union fo an international test prohibition continue to make progress This was indicated Thursday by Secretary of State Christian A Herter at a news conference Her ter said in response to a question that I would personally favor the extension if it were a matter of weeks only while we were still talking He added that he had serious doubts about any longer suspen sion beyond Dec 31 the current expiration date In taking this line he appeared to be reflecting US concern over the possibility that if tests are de layed too long without the pro tection of an international inspec tion system the Soviets may sec retly resume their own tesling and get ahead of the Unitec States in nuclear weapons dc velopment Negotiations for an intcrnationa agreement have been under wa at Geneva for more than a yea among the United States Britain the Soviet Union The Unitec States and

amputated hospital aides said The accident happened shortly after 7 pm when Secor was trapped by the wall section while he was trying to remove it to enlarge the cellar His wife Margaret 33 heard his

United States swiftly assured India of its moral backing today in a border dispute with Red China India says the Chinese forcibly seized some of her ter ritory Secretary of State Christian A Herter who first told a news con ference this country was taking no sides later issued a statement saying the Red Chinese in using force were wholly in the wrong This word was given to the Indian Embassy here and dis patched to the US embassy in New Delhi IKE VISIT President Eisenhower is sched uled to go to New Delhi on a good will mission within a month Offi cials were afraid that unless Her ters remarks were clarified re sentment against the United States might sour the Presidents visit Replying to news conference questions Herter said the United States has no way of knowing di rectly whether India or Red China is right in the disputed territorial claims and has taken no sides on the issue But 35 minutes later he issued a formal statement saying The questions asked me on this subject seemed to me directed at the legal rights along the bor ders and my answers according ly related only to the legality of the rival claims There is the further and more important point that whatever may be the merits of a dispute force must not be used to settle it The Chinese Com munist regime has clearly used force and in this respect is wholly in the wrong In taking this position Herter put the United States more in line with Indian Prime Minister Neh rus policy which calls for settle ment by negotiation and condemns he use of force THE ISSUE At issue are 57000 square miles of territory which has long been in controversy as to its real owner ship although for many years i has been under Indian administra tion Last month the Chinese Commu nists killed nine members of an Indian police patrol and captured 10 others in what was described at the time as a Red Cliinese am bush Herters statement was limited to what his associates called the moral issue of the use of force Nehru has made clear that he is not seeking Western military backing and has rejected all sug gestions within India for making some kind of alliance against Red China DENVER Colo an Intense cold that plunged

UNITED NATIONS NY AP majority of the United Nations Thursday night asked France to call off her planned atomic test in the Sahara Desert but the vote apparently was just short of the total necessary

test by a vote of 6226 with 10 abstentions But this was two votes short of the twothirds majority of those voting necessary to secure adop tion of the resolution in the As sembly The outcome of the

things get rougher he declared This is going to re mind me of the bad days of the when many gave up he fight He predicted that the revolution vould march on even if its ene mies try to mobilize God against us This wont work Castro said because one cannot have a good idea of God if he doesnt have a notion of what it is to love his neighbor Obviously weary from his hours of directing the search

Bags under his eyes were clearly visible BLAMES DIAZ He rejected the U S contention that there was no evidence U S ased aircraft bombed and strafed Havana in a leaflet raid over the capital Oct 21

organized teachers school directors school adminis trators and PTA groups Berger said sentiment was growing to enact an additional school subsidy bill in the 1959 ses sion minus taxes to finance it because it is questionable the 1960 Legislature can deal with school subsidies But there would be nothing to stop the 1960 session from pass ing tax bills to pay for the added aid A new Constitutional amend ment limits sessions in evennum bered years to the passage of taxes and appropriations only Berger also pointed out that it would be the same group of law makers faced with the school tax
