(AP New Oil Import Control Okayed WASHINGTON Kennedy approved Friday a new oil import control program which bases import quotas for.the area east of the Rocky Mountains on domestic production rather than total demand. The changes apply to imports of crude and unfinished oils and fin- ished petroleum products other than residual fuel Officials said they would make little change in the amount of licensed imports during the first half of 1963 and do not affect overland exempted imports from Canada and Mexico. Reporters were told at a White Import Control Proclamation is sued March 10, 1959. This provides for a new formula to limit imports of crude oil, un- finished oils, and finished prod- ucts, other than'residual fuel oil to be used as fuel, to 12.2 pei cent of domestic production of crude oil and natural gas liquids produced east of the Rockies dur- ing an earlier six month period. Imports limits for the January- Offj, June period of for instance will be based on a formula taking into account domestic production in the January-June period of this year.

General Assembly unanimously elected U Thant on Friday as secretary-general for an additional four years. In the works were boosts in pay and allowances that will bring the Burmese diplomat a year in his post. Delegates in the 110-nation as- sembly cast secret ballots ratify- ing an earlier unanimous recom- mendation by the Security Coun- cil that Thant's term be extended until Nov. 3, 1966, and the word "acting" dropped from his title. Immediately after the vote the 53-year-old former schoolmaster- journalist was escorted from an office behind the podium to the assembly rostrum. There assembly President Mu- hammad Zafrulla Khan of Pak- istan, a Moslem, greeted Thant, a Buddhist, and told him "it is for me a great joy" to be the first to offer congratulations on the election. Applause rippled through the great blue and gold assembly hall.

(AP Wirephoto) New Steps to Eliminate Cuban Threat Reported landing, crashed and burned Fri- day nieht at Idlewild Airport. At least 25 of the 50 persons aboard were killed. More than a score of survivors were accounted for. Some even walked away, leading one near- hysterical onlooker to exclaim: 'God, it was a miracle." The plane was Eastern's Flight 512 from Charlotte, N.C., with 45 passengers and a crew of. five. It lad flown from New York to Charlotte earlier in the evening, and departed on its non-stop re- turn trip at p.m. EST.

The airliner came down on Idle- wild's north-south instrument run- way. It hurtled off the concrete or some 200 yards and burst into flames. The rear part of the fuselage remained intact. However, the .lain section of the plane split and wreckage was scattered over a wide area. Fire Commissioner Edward Thompson reported from the air port: "Remnants of the plane are strewn all over the scene." Soft sand, reeds and tall grass hampered the search for sur- vivors. The heavy fog also slowed rescue vehicles to a 5 m.p.h. crawl. They had to be guided across the airport by policemen on foot. Some lost their way. Two stewardesses aboard the plane were listed among the sur- vivors. At the hospital, they ap- peared groggy but not badly hurt. It was the sixth major airplane crash in eight days.

At least two of those felled by thc gas were reported in serious condition and two olhcrs were placed in oxygen tents. Two bos- pitals here called in extra person- nel to handle the emergency cases.
