Turning to his own campaign prospects, Yarborough said, "Something is happening. I know what I'm talking about. "We're going to carry every metropolitan city in the state ex- cept perhaps Midland. .and I'm going back there to campaign some more." "I want Texas to be No. Yarborough said, phrasing his campaign slogan. He proposed that as governor he would immediately launch a pro- gram to create 50 new junior col; leges. He said California is grow- ing at a tremendous rate because the youth are being educated in junior colleges in their home towns, thus remaining in their native areas to make their homes. Citing the fact that some 600 Texas communities lost population in the past 10 years, he said the institution of junior colleges in many localities would "keep young people in specific areas where they were raised." Yarborough said youth are need- ed in goverment and in business. He also claimed that Texas has been lagging in it. industrial growth, pointing to figures show- ing that while new jobs were created in the state last year, approximately Cfi.OOO new jobs were created in North Caro- lina. Considerable effort would be ex- pended during his administration to attract more industry to Texas, Yarborough said. He also proposed repeal of the state sales tax, saying that an equal amount of revenue could be raised by doubling the state's oil production allowance and by meet- ing the competition for the tour- ist dollar.

He was assigned a three-hour stint, from noon to 3 p.m. His wife also joined the picket line. Dr. and Mrs. Pauling are among 175 guests, including 49 Nobel jrize winners, invited to the White Jiouse dinner. He said they plan to attend the dinner. Pauling won the 1954 No- l Prize for chemistry. The picketing had to be con- ducted on H St., across Lafayette Park from the White House, in- stead of on the sidewalk in front of the White House on Pennsyl- vania Ave. Washington police barred pick- eting within 500 feet of the White House because of the presence there of British Prime Minister Harold Macmillan. The 500-foot rule is invoked only when a dis- tinguished foreign visitor is at the White House. Costless and hatless, Dr. Paul- ing carried two different signs. One said "no" and included a pic- :ure of an atomic explosion. The other read: "Mr. Kennedy, Mr. Macmillan: You have no right to test." Pauling dropped out of the pick- et line to talk briefly on a park jench with a newsman.

"There were the bright colors of the explosion and fireball and they blended with a brilliant sunrise." Friday's dawn shot was in the intermediate-yield range, meaning an explosive force between 20.000 tons and one million tons of TNT. Hosmer, the first congressman to view the current nuclear series, said the tests were proceeding so well "they should be finished on or before schedule. This assumes the weather will remain good.

But Only When Conditions Right By JOHN M. HIGHTOWER nuclear testing so that the new WASHINGTON (API-President of atmospheric tests could Kennedy and British Prime Min- ister Macmillan agreed Saturday that they are ready to consider holding East-West summit confer- ences if assured of useful results, But they said conditions are not ripe for summit diplomacy now. British and U.S. informants said following day-long talks at the White House that the two leaders generally agreed there should be East-West diplomatic contacts at many levels including, whan pro- ductive, the summit. They specifically agreed that U.S.-Soviet discussions on the pos- sibility of German settlement could be continued. Informants said this derision was reached after Kennedy gave Macmillan a report on conversa- tions held here during the past two weeks by Secretary of State Dean Busk with Soviet Ambassa- dor Anatoly F. Dobrynin. Kennedy and; Macmillan felt their summit policy agreement was in line with views expressed by Soviet Premier Nikita S, Khrushchev in a Moscow inter- view about 10 days ago. Khrush- chev told American publislier Gardner Cowles that he thought advance preparations should be made to give prospect of success- ful results from a summit confer- ence. Kennedy and Macmillan were reported to be thinking of the pos- sibility of more than one summit conference if conditions were suit- able. However, informants de- clined to say that what they nad in mind was a series of top level meetings, although the report opened that possibility. The British and American gov- ernment chiefs met for about two hours Saturday morning. They had lunch together at the White House and spent another two hours in conference Saturday aft- rnoon. They decided to continue their talks Sunday, and a joint state- ment once scheduled for issuance late Saturday was delayed unti: sometime Sunday afternoon. Official word from the morning session was that the two leaders had discussed a wide range of is- sues, including Berlin and disarm ament. In the course of their" -discus sions, they ranged over Berlin problems, disarmament, summi prospects and policy, the Euro- pean Common Market, Laos, am nuclear weapons testing. These other results were re ported: 1. Both men expressed regre that the Soviet Union had no agreed with the Western powers to an enforceable treaty ban on lave been avoided. They also re- gretted East-West failure so far .0 agree on broad disarmament measures. They expressed deter- mination that East-West discus- sions on both problems should continue and firm hope that See TALKS, Pg. 2-A, Plan to Cut Aid Projects Protested By JACK BELL WASHINGTON (API Senate leaders said Saturday they will oppose any move to cut foreign aid grants to punish neutral na- tions critical of U.S. policies and nuclear testing. A proposal by Sen. Kenneth B. Keating, '-N.Y., that Congress ire- shape the foreign aid program to give the bulk of aid to "those nations which share ouv view ot the world crisis" was rejected by the assistant Democratic leaderj J Hubert H.' Humphrey of Mirine- sota and the Republican leader, Everett M. Dirksen of DliritfiSy Keating told the Senate "Earlier in the week that the reaction to reluctant American resumption of nuclear atmospheric testing would indicate "who our friends really are in the world." He said those who "parrot Khrushchev's line" should be dealt with accordingly. Humphrey said that while he deprecates the actions of some neutrals criticizing .U.S. policies and programs, he doesn't believe foreign aid should be granted on the basis of "whether we are pleased with the attitude these countries take." We should judge foreign aid on the basis of whether it will pro- mote economic progress in the world and thus serve our national he sale Humphrey said Jiat, as a mat- ter of fact, the protests against resumption of nuclear testing had been more muted than the ad- ministration had expected.

French Troops Set Major Offensive Against Rebels ORAN, Algeria (AP) Twelve Oran so far has shown no reac- thousand French troops massed around defiant Oran Saturday for a progressive "Operation Asphyx- iation" to smother the rule of the Secret Army Organization. Authorities ordered four key thoroughfares cleared of cars starting Sunday to permit rapid troop deployment, and warned that motorists violating the park- ing rule may be fired upon. The Oran garrison commander, Gen. Joseph Katz, also warned that buildings from which gunfire is directed at his troops will be cleared of inhabitants. Arrival of troops today from Algeria's interior raised Katz' strength to men, the minimum considered necessary for control operations in the .port city, which is split into European tion to the measures. Crowds of Saturday afternoon shoppers milled in the streets and jammed sidewalk cafes. Cars noisily honked the settlers' slogan, the five-beat "Alg-er-ie Fran-caise" meaning "Algeria Is French."
