Seasoned 112 pilot Capt. John Campbell, 36, of f.aughlin Air Force Base, Tex., has been over- due lo return to this desert lesl center since 9 o'clock Thursday night. A spokesman said his fuel would have been exhausted by p.m. Several of the glider-like jets, capable of long Ixmrs of soaring in the thin reaches of the atmos- phere above feet, have been taking pictures ot cloud cover over the western United Stales lo delect tornadoes. A similar plane, reportedly tak- ing pictures of military installa- tions, was brought down in Sovicl territory almost two years ago, Campbell's exact mission has not U.S. Tests Of Warheads Expected WASHINGTON Unit- ed States is expected lo try oul warheads for antimissile missiles in nuclear tests it evidently plans to resume in the atmosphere next month. There was no confirmation here Friday, however, of reports that blasls would include tests of a neutron bomb intended lo blockjsmall 'apel pin which shows an been disclosed. The Air Force called it a routine flight. The U2, with its long, narrow wings, is especially hazardous io fly in stormy weather and there was a cold front in this area Thursday. The search is concentrated in the mountains that ring this re- search base on the Mojave Desert ICO miles north of Los Angeles. At least nine U2s have crashed in the United States. This count does not cover the one losl in the Soviet Union nor others used on secret missions. Because of the heights (hey can reach, U2s have'bcen used to test secret gear designed for satellites such as Midas, which detects the heal of missile exhaust, anti Samos, which lakes pictures far superior lo Ihose carried in the U2 losl in the Soviet Union. They also have been used to help spot capsules from Discov- erer satellites as Ihcy plunge down into the atmosphere toward a recovery area near Hawaii. At I.aughlin AFB, authorities would reveal very little informa- tion about Campbell. His home town is listed as Bias- dell, N.Y., and he has been sta- tioned at the base about four years. His wife and two children live in a housing project on the base. Campbell, was a member of the mh Siralegic Wing but had been on detached duly at Edwards AFB for some time.

So far as official statements gn, at least, there has been no sign Ih'al this weapon is ready for such tests. Anyway, some of those in liie know indicate that a specially tailored hydrogen or atomic bomb might be more effective in knock- ing down incoming intercontinent- al ballistic missiles. President Kennedy, at a news confercnca Feb. 7, expressed con- cern lhal if Ihe United Slates re- mained inactive in the nuclear Icsting field, while the Soviet Un- ion perhaps prepared secretly for another series of tests, then the Soviet Union might be first wilh a big breakthrough in the field of antimissile missiles. "It is a deadly business, (his conipetition and 1 don't say much security comes of he said. "But less security would cer- tainly come out of it if we per- milled them to make a decisive breakthrough in an area like an AICBM" anli-inlerconlinenlal ballistic missile. Besides the upcoming nuclear tests, the Army is planning a sep- arate experiment this spring. It expects to fire a Nike-Xeus anti missile missile .against an Atlas ICBM shot over the Pacific from California. Tltc Nike-Zeus, to be fired from Kwajalein atoll, is unlikely to carry a nuclear warhead.

Only Treaty Will Stop U. S. From Air Testing Steel Talks Called Off No Agreement By BOB VOELKEU PITTSBURGH, Pa. (AP) Steel negotiators broke off talks Friday night, dashing hopes for a quick contract settlement in the. basic steel industry. Ton-level negotiators had been meeting since Feb. J5 in efforts to reach an early contract agree- ment in line with picas by Presi- dent Kennedy. Present pacts ex- pire June 30. David J. Stcelworkers McDonald. United president, said he anticipated formal bargaining would resume somclime after May 1 on new contracts for some basic Steel workers. R. Conrad Cooper, chief indus- try negotiator, said the big prob- lem unresolved is employment security. Optimism had nin high in some quarters that a basis of agree- ment was imminent. In fact, Cooper and McDonald said pre- viously they had hoped to reach some sort of agreement by March 1. McDonald and Cooper issued separate statements following a brief night, conference, the lirst held since negotiations opened. President Kennedy had urged a quick nonmflationery settlement to avert an economy-jarring in- ventory buildup by steel buyers. Cooper, a vice president of U.S. Steel Corp. who represented II major steel firms in the talks, said: "In the course of these dis- FROM ACTIVE DUTY Many Will Be Released Early WASHINGTON' esti- mated college students who were called to active military duty as Reserves or National Guards- men will be eligible lor early dis- charge under nn order announced Friday by the Defense Depart ment. The order, signed by Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara, is expected to apply also to GOO or high school and other second- ary school teachers now in uni- form. The action will release the teachers and students in July and August, in time for summer school or Ihe fall school terra. It means some of them may be gelling out of uniform as much as 90 days early. They were mustered inlo service for a maximum of one year lasl September and October, during Ihe buildup resulling from the Berlin crisis. Pentagon officials said the early release for teachers and students is in line with standing policy anr has no bearing on whether the Berlin crisis has cased. They said no decision has been made on a dale for general re- lease of the Reserves and Guardsmen called- up last fall. Students and teachers seeking early release must present papers showing they have been accepted by an educational inslitulion. They will not be demobilized more than 10 days before the regislration date of the school or college in volvcd.

"it is our hope and prayer that to the nation. Kennedy offered to these grim, unwelcome tests will never have to be made." Kennedy said solemnly in calling on Khrushchev lo lake the "monu- mental step toward peace" ot signing a test ban treaty. He pinned the choice directly on Khrushchev, who first broke I he atomic test moratorium tast Sept. I. "It is the leaders of the Soviet Union who must bear the heavy of choosing, in Ihe weeks that lie whether we proceed with these (disarmament) proceed wilh new Kennedy said. The President told the nation 'in all however, that last fall's Soviet test series, "in Ihe absence of further Western progress, could well provide the' Soviet Union wilh a nuclear at- tack and defense capability so powerful as lo encourage aggres- sive designs." Should the United Stales not protect its security by resuming atmospheric tests. Kennedy con- tended, the Soviet Union would see this as a sign ot weakness and fear. So by resuming tests, the Pres- ident said, he hopes actually to trcnglhen peace prospects be- cause Ihe Red leaders will realize then "that (he West will no longer stand still" while the Soviet Union tests. Kennedy gave a detailed de- fense of his decision to resume tests in (he wake of the Soviet action in breaking the atomic test moratorium last fall. Most of the modern U.S. missile arsenal re- lics on atomic warheads which have never been operationally lestcd. And weaponeers are searching for a breakthrough to- ward an antimissile missile to shoot down attacking inlerconti- nenial rockets.
