She must have constant at- tention and, after insurance expired and family savings were exhausted, some friends and strangers started in March 1961 the Sharon Jones Fund at Citirens National Bank, a vol- unteer" effort to provide that care. Pre-birroday pictures and n ttory on Eddie, who was born during his mother's unconscious- ness, were published in this newspaper on July 1. The As- sociated Press spread the ac- count of the truth-is-stranger- than-fiction drama. And money gifts for Sharon's attention have been coming in steadily since to Citizens Bank. Mary Ann Barker, who tabu- lates the fund at the bank, said that from Monday, July 2 through Monday, July 9, the gifts totaled That is equal to from five to six weeks nursing bills, calcu- lates: Don Taylor, who with Gary Archer is co-custodian of the fund. Most of the gifts are from Texas. But the envelopes have carried, too, postmarks of towns and cities in Kansas, Louisiana, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Florida, Illinois and New Mexico.

Glancing solemnly over his glasses at his audience hi the red and gold hall, he declared the So- viet Union has developed a mis- sile to knock down This was the first such claim, but Western military experts ,doubt that Soviet scientists have such a weapon ready to shoot. He denounced as a challenge to mankind the current series of American tests in the Pacific, in- cluding the high-altitude hydrogen shot Monday, and said these had made further improvement of So- viet weapons an unavoidable ne- cessity. This was-a reiteration of threats of a new series of Soviet nuclear tests. Khrushchev's claims to the world's most powerful weapons were in these words, "Let's be perfect weapons that no other power possesses."

U.S. Rejects Russian Plan For Berlin By LEWIS GULICK WASHINGTON Unit- ed States sharply and publicly re- Co.'s Bell Laboratories, and the jected Tuesday a new Berlin pro- posal by Soviet Premier Khrush- chev and denounced as "hypocri- sy" his complaint against U.S. atomic tests. State Department press officer Lincoln White issued the U.S. re- in Maine. It shot out into space tliiig speech to the "Peace Con. gress" now meeting in Moscow. Khrushchev proposed that Bel- gian and Dutch, or Norwegian and Danish, troops, plus Communist Polish and Czechoslovakian units, replace the present American, British and French garrisons in West Berlin. White disclosed that the United States, in Secretary of State Dean Rusk's private conversations with the Soviets, had already turned down a Soviet suggestion .that the smaller North Atlantic Treaty Or- ganization and Warsaw Pact pow- ers replace the Western Big Three in Communist-surrounded West Berlin. Western strategists regard the continued military presence of the big powers in West Berlin as vital to the life of that city under Red pressure. They feel past Khrush- frank about it-we have the most chev proposals-including making West Berlin a "free city" and sub- stituting a U.N. presence for the Western garrisons are aimed at eventual Communist control. White said: "Chairman Khrushchev's state- ment appears to be one of the variants of Soviet proposals pre- viously put forward designed to reduce or eliminate the position of the three Western powers in West Berlin. "For example, in the aide-mem- Sire from the Soviet Union to the United States of June 4, 1961 (aft- er Khrushchev's Vienna meeting with President the So- viet government proposed the in- troduction of token Soviet troop contingents into West Berlin.
