More Ihnn billion in first- class voting slock in the "Com- munications Satellite Corporation" would be made available lo (he public and communications car- riers at not less Ibnn a share.

The letter accompanied proposed legislation, "the Communication! Satellite Act of that spelled out the details. There has been controversy and hearings over who should own the projected satellite communication government, a mo- nopoly by one or group ol firms, or open to all comers. Kennedy urged today that both the public and the communica- tions carriers be let in on the deal. Last July lie announced ho was in favor of private ownership. The proposal called for the is- sue of a million shares of Class voting stock. While these shares would be eligible [or dividends the payoff might be a long time coming.

Estimates of he costs of such a system range upward from million and it is unlikely to become a profitable venture in less than a decade. Just when the space network will be a reality is a matter of dispute. The director of Ihe President's Space Council, Dr. E. C. Welsh, has said it will be some years be- fore the system is ready to be launched. Some private compa- nies had testified they could do the job by I9C3.

Germany (API A fiery explosion caved in laise areas of the I.niscnlhal coal mine near here soday and officials reported sr, mineis were killed, Til injured and ISO to 2'20 were j missing. The Coal .Mine Office of the Stale of Sarrland announced 216 miners in the workings at the lime of Ihe blast were rescued or reached safety. Many of those saved suffered severe injuries. The explosion occurred about 9 a.m. at a depth of 1.300 feet in the so-called Alsbach layer of the mine. The Mining Office blamed the Wast on coal dust gas. The mine is at nearby Voel- klinpen. Fire and Ihe cave-in of several levels of the mine killed some 'workers. Others died when a shock wave threw them against pit walls.

The U.S. stand is expect- ed lo get support from virtually all Ihe Latin American and West Kuropcan members and a good portion of the 50-mcmbcr Asian- African group. The General Assembly's main political committee, which re- cessed for a day so ihal mem- bers could wade through the mass of charges and counter charges delivered at the opening session Monday, scheduled two debate cessions today. Chairman Mario Amadeo of Ar jenlina was reported having trou- ble gelling anyone to lake part in the Cuban debate. Only Com- munist Romania and Guatemala were scheduled to speak. Cuba and its .Soviet bloc back- ers have been trying lo frame a resolution that would command Ihe two-thirds majority needed for approval in the lO-l-nation assem- bly, hut they apparently have re- ceived lillle encouragement. Several measures introduced in the House provide, on Ihe oilier hand, for complete government ownership. Kennedy included a number of provisions designed to guard againsl domination by any one stockholder. Kennedy said he planned to es- tablish, and rely heavily upon, a director of telecommunications management in the Office of Emergency Planning, and also look lo the National Aeronautics and Space Council for hcip in the program. He said enactment of the pro- posed legislation and the opera tion ef a satellite communications system would provide a dramatic demonstration of leadership in space and inlcnl lo share space benefits for peaceful use.
