"You can well imagine thai If this lethal weapon is ex- ploded over some country there will -be nothing lefl there at Khrushchev told a meeting of Soviet journal- ists. But he said the Soviet government is "ready to sink all this in the sea in the in- terests of ensuring peace on earth. if other countries will follow our example." Khrushchev's speech was made Friday, but his text was not released until last night. The Russian leader said he was making public the rocket production figure to back up his 1958 announcement that the Soviets were turning out intercontinental ballistic mis- siles. He did not indicate whe- ther the plant he referred to was producing all of Russia's nuclear-headed rockets. Denies Policy Changed "Some in the that the Soviet west claim Union has changed its policy and there- fore it has become easier to talk with Khrushchev said. "This is wrong, of course. Communists we were born, communists we live and will not die but continue to march onward as commu- nists."

The program requires bor rowers to sign a loyalty affidavit. Yale President A. Whitney Griswold said the affidavit '.'is contrary to the classic principles of our colleges and universi ties." Harvard President Nathan M. Pusey called it misguided and an "affidavit of disbe- lief." Pusey, former president of Lawrence college, said the af- fidavit is discriminatory since it singles out students alone in our population and, among students, the neediest subjects for special dis- trust. Oath Ineffective He said persons disloyal to the United States would not hesitate to sign the affidavit, and called it "an effront to freedom of belief and consci- ence. "It seems counter to the philosophical principles on which our national strength las been he said. Griswold said the affidavit 'partakes of the nature of the oppressive religious and po- litical test oaths of history, which were used as a means of exercising control over the educational process by church or state." He added that "loyalty can- Turn to Page 4, Col. 4 House Investigators Check Up on Dick Clark They Want to Get Facts About His TV Practices Philadelphia House investigators have come here to check information about the television practices o f Dick Clark, idol of teen- agers.

NATO Leader Wants to Bolster Sea Defenses ASSOCIATED PRESS WIRE SERVICE Price Seven Cents 1 i Arms Issue Not Discussed in London Talks Macmillan and Adenauer Progress On Other Problems BY TOM OCHBLTREE Minister Macmillan and West German Chancellor Konrad Adenauer have decided to avoid the con- troversial topic of limiting arms in central Europe in their friendship-mending talks. British and West German spokesmen said today both sides had agreed to stay away from the subject after a day of talks in which good prog- ress was reported toxvard set- tling some of their differences. It -was Macmillan's visit to Moscow early this year, when lie discussed with Premier Nikita S. Khrushchev the idea of limiting arms in a zone of central Europe, that excited Adenauer's suspicion of Brit- ish policy. On 3-Day Visit Adenauer feared such a pol- cy would start a process of al- lied withdrawal in central Eu- rope that would weaken the western defensive shield, leav- ing West Germany exposed to communist pressure. Adenauer arrived in London yesterday for a 3-day visit in an effort to clear away months of bickering. He and Macmillan cancell- ed a second conference this morning to allow their foreign ministers, Selwyn Lloyd and Hfeinrich von Brentano, to go nio more detail on points touched on in the opening meeting yesterday. Lloyd and Von Brentano discussed disarmament, an east-west summit meeting and relationships between two rival European trade zones, .he seven and the common "market of which .West Germany is a member.

Truman to go along on next month's good will visit to three continents, a White House spokesman says. Wayne Hawks, acting House press secretary, told a news conference questioner yesterday: "He has it under consideration, yes." But one obvious obstacle in the way of turning the presi- dent and former president in- to traveling companions is that for seven years there hasn't been much good will between them. A spokesman for Truman said in Kansas City that Tru- man knew nothing of the idea. It was Sen. Thomas J. Dodd (D-Conn) who suggested that Eisenhower make his mile tour of 11 nations a bi- partisan affair. He wrote a letter to the chief executive Friday proposing that Eisen- hower invite one or more Democrats experienced in in- ternational affairs. Acheson Mentioned In addition to Truman, thft senator mentioned Dean Ach- eson, who was Truman's sec- retary of state; Adlai E.

The joint chiefs planned to fly back .o Washington without seeing newsmen. Hawks said there was no in- dication that the conference was related to Eisenhower's travels to Asia 'and Africa or a western summit conference starting Dec. 19 in Paris. Hawks said he thinks an an- swer to Dodd's letter will be coming up very shortly. Is this something he is consulting with other people a newsman inquired. "I just don't know who he is consulting or whether he is or Hawks said. But he was definite on one thing: "Eisenhower hasn't communicated with Truman about it.

Jones had told newsmen the knife attack on a white per- son was an initiation test for a gang he had formed. Jones said he was a member of the Black Hawk gang in Chicago.
