Abilene Reporter-News, The (Newspaper) - March 14, 1962, Abilene, Texas "WITHOUT OR WITH OFFENSE TO FRIENDS OR FOES WE SKETCH YOUR WORLD EXACTLY AS IT 81ST YEAR, NO. 270 ABILENE, TEXAS, WEDNESDAY EVENING, J.5ARCH 14, 1662 PAGES IN TWO SECTIONS Associated Prea (VP) Hope Not Bright For Geneva Pact GENEVA the first time in almost two years Russia and the Western Allies began a new round of disarmament nego- tiations today with some hope of restricting but much less hope of stopping the nuclear arms race. The 17-nnlion U.N. Disarma- ment Committee met at the Pal- ace of Nalions in late afternoon for a ceremonial session. The last big disarmament conference broke down in I960. The delegalcs, including U.S. Secretary of Stale Dean Rusk and Soviet Foreign Minister Antlrei Gromyko, heard the resumption of negotiations hailed as signaling in ilsclf an easing of East-West ten- sions, American sources said just he- fore the session opened thai the Western powers and Russia might be able to negotiate an agreement lo block the spread ol nuclear weapons and thus begin lo bring the arms race under control. Western officials saw litlle pros- pect of agreements in coining months, however, which would hall lhe manufacture of nuclear weapons. The oullook is dim, loo, for stop- ping nuclear weapons testing. In both cases, officials said, the ap- parently insuperable barrier is Russia's unwillingness lo open up ils territory to international in- spection. Tho ministers made no com- ment as they entered the palace for the crucial .discussions, which were set up under a resolution of the United Nations. Omor Loulfi of llie United Arab Republic, a U.N. undersecretary, formally opened lhe conference as the personal representative of Act ing Secretary General U Thant. Conveying Thant's wishes that (he conference be a success, Lout- fi said "no one can fail to recog- nize the complexity of your task and the difficulties which you must overcpme. Positive and hope- ful elements, however, exist." Among (lie hopeful factors, he said, were the inclusion of eight neutral nations to bring to the conference the "views of the dif- ferent regions of lhe world." "The resumption of general <iis- armament negotiations after a hi- atus of almost two he added, "can in itself provide a valuable step towards the relaxa- tion of international tensions, as well, as toward a solution of the formidable task of how to achieve general and complete disarma- ment under effective international control." The delegates sat around a green-covered square table in Knglish alphabetical order. A seat set aside for the who decided not to attend the con- empty. India's V. K. Krishna Mcnon appeared amused by this. He pointed to the vacant chair beside him several times and smiled. SHAUON HENDERSON believed heading west AMARILLO (AP) A 3 year- old girl and a leen-age hitchhiker left with her as a baby sitter dis- appeared from the tot's homo in the Texas Panhandle Tuesday. Henry Henderson, 11. father of the child, told sheriff's officers the two vanished in late after- noon while the parents and three other children were absent for an hour and a half. He found a note advising: "1 am going to Now York." Henderson and his wife said they found the girl, bedraggled and near exhaustion, lying beside a fence Sunday night near their home at Conway. 35 miles east of; Amarillo. She identified herself! only by the name of Carol and' said she was 19, they reported.
