C. Offers 'Hasty Hearr' By ERNEST THOMPSON "The Hasty John Pat- rick's tale of the thawing out of a man who locked the bitter herbs of loneliness in the ice of pride, will be presented tonight by the East Central drama department, pro appeared today to be completely stalled against an un- yielding wall' of Soviet opposition in their last-ditch effort to get Moscow's agreement to an enforceable treaty banning nuclear tests. While formally expressing hope that Soviet Premier Khrushchev will yet reverse his policy against an inter- national inspection system to police a test ban, offi- cials here actually see no prospect that this will happen. President Kennedy is therefore going ahead with plans to start atmospheric testing of nuclear weapons in about two weeks. The tests will be held over the Central Pa- cific during a period of about two months, and officials indicate that there will be between 30 and 40 nuclear explosions involved. British Prime Minister Harold Macmillan told the House of Commons in London Tuesday that he will go on pressing for East-West agreement on a test ban "to the last possible moment." It became apparent Tuesday that while Kennedy has shown re- luctance to go into the test scries, Macmillan is under much greater home-front political pressure to in the auditorium oH as rolled steel. Included in the category are basic continue demonstrating the desire; movingly, to put an end to all tests. By agreement between Kennedy and Macmillan, the United States and Britain issued a joint state- ment which amounted to a warn- ing to the Russians and to the world that without a change in the Soviet position, "the test series scheduled for the latter pail oi this monlh will go forward." Macmillan also sent a new per- p. m. Science Hall. Surly Scot Brought into a convalescent ward behind the Assam-Burma front during World War II, a sur- ly, arrogant young Scots sergeant named Lachlen (Jerry Hickey) does not know he has only a few weeks to live. His ward mates and the ward nurse (Doris Lemley) do, and they put up with his rudeness and rebuffs until they win him over. But, when Lachlen discovers he is doomed, he decides all the friendliness was merely pity and with proud fury, he again retreats into his shell of arrogance and rejects his fellowmen.

He is certain to say he doesn't like it. The White House said Kennedy would have no comment on the big steel company's action before his televised conference. He had said he would make his comments in a statement expect- ed before that time. That word came from the Presi- dent at a White House social func- tion Tuesday night. Andrew T. Hatcher, assistant press secretary, said Kennedy re- ceived his first word of the ton price hike by U.S. Steel from Roger Blough, board chairman of the firm, at a personal meeting in the White House .late Tuesday. Hatcher said Blough requested the appointment, and came from D sec the President. new policy on such projects. The south central Oklahoma proj- ect is designed to provide munici- pal, domestic and industrial water supplies plus flood control, fish, wildlife and recreational features. Rep. Walter Rogers, D-Tex.. sub- committee chairman said, Davis, Wynnewuod, Sulphur and Ardmore Okla., have shown interest in the project and have contributed mon- ey toward its planning. He said it also would provide industrial water to the Kerr- McGee refinery in the area. The committee-approved bill in- cludes language providing for a proportionate reduction in the amount of reservoir storage in- tended for all water users in the event the amount of sedimation reduces the reservoir's size. It also sets the current estimated cost of the project as a ceiling on congresssional appropriations. Rogers and Rep. Ed Edmondson D-Okla.. contended the sedimen- tation action should be taken to safeguard the federal investment in the project.

He thus sought to overcome the Soviet contention that the Western powers want to put international inspection teams on Soviet terri- tory for purposes of espionage. The essence of Macmillan's ar- gument, made many times in re- cent weeks by U.S. and British leaders, is that without a system of international verification none of the big powers could be sure that a test ban was being faith- fully observed, and therefore sus- picion of violations would inevita- bly grow up. It is understood that Tuesday's joint statement was the result of a recent suggestion by Macmillan to Kennedy that they jointly make a new appeal to Khrushchev to agree to an effective test-ban pact.

Kennedy also discussed the sur- prise move with Chairman Walter W. Heller of the Council of Eco- nomic Advisers and several Cabi- net officers. The Justice Department has said it will investigate the price (products for the automotive j industry. Meanwhile, the president of Reynolds Metals Co., a leader in i the aluminum field, said the U.S. Steel increase is justified. Richard S. Reynolds Jr., said, "As I have pointed out many times, industry cannot continue to have rising costs without increas- ing prices."

The increase came less than a week after U.S. Steel and 10 other big firms signed new two-year la- bor contracts with the United Steelworkers to take effect July l. Those pacts, granting a 10-cent- an-hour package increase to each basic steelworker, were hailed by President Kennedy as responsible and non-inflationary, adhering to the President's plea for an early, non-inflationary steel settlement.

The figures on the launcher- loaders were offered by the sub- committee's staff accountant after Douglas President Donald W. Douglas Jr. challenged previous testimony that his- company had made profits of million on Nike missile.contracts since 1952. Douglas said the firm's actual profits were less than half of that, running .'to what -he said was a reasonable million. He contended the subcommit- tee's accountants mistakenly in- cluded S34.01 million of legitimate business expenses in the profits column. Chairman John L. McCIellan; D-Ark, called staff accountant Thomas E. Nunnally to testify.- Nunnally and Robert E. Dunne, assistant committee counsel, placed in evidence what they de- scribed as records from Douglas company files. Nunnaliy said these showed that was the entire, cost to the Douglas Co. for one order for Nike launcher-loader devices in 1956-57. The launcher-loaders, plus some other Nike equipment, were manu- factured by Consolidated 'Western Steel Co., on a subcontract from Douglas, and delivered to the Army with a bill for million Nunnally said." McCJellan said-that of ning to stud his speeches with classical and historical references that seldom -found their way into his some-1 times bluntly phrased remarks in the past. The feeling among some of his associates is that Johnson is taking a page out of the book of President; Kennedy, who operates with an acute sense of his- tory and from a seemingly inexhaustible store of quotations. The vice president makes no pretense of equaling the literary accomplishments of Kennedy, who has a couple of best sellers to his credit. But Johnson could feel that it would be no drawback to .a man who might like to run for presi- dent in 1968 to be known as one who has delved into the scholarly accomplishments of the past and can apply them to today's prob- lems. In his most recent speech, be- fore a Pennsylvania- State Univer- sity audience Tuesday, Jolmson cited quotations from Benjamin Franklin, Alexander Hamilton, Alexis Charles Henri Maurice Cle- rel de Tocqueville and H. G. Wells to drive home his points. Four days earlier, in a talk to labor editors, Johnson drew on the wisdom of Edmund Burke, Wendell Phillips, Thomas Jeffer- son, Franklin D.

Returning to the problems of financing state government, he observed that some candidates want to whittle the welfare fund for money for other governmental services. Gary disagrees with this proposal. One candidate, he said, pro- poses to take S10 million from the fund for highways. Gary said that this would ultimately tend to re- duce or hold at sub-standard levels the old age payments and other welfare aid. Gary said that the sales tax was voted by the people of Oklahoma and the receipts pledged to the welfare program. There it ought to stay, he said. He said that he has reviewed the many proposals for doing away with earmarking of state funds in general. Finally. Gary explained, he always reaches the conclusion that the earmarking serves a good purpose and that doing away with it would not make any more money available. There would be bad side effects produced, too, in his opinion. If all the tax revenue were to go into .the general fund, the com- petition for mony from the legis- lature would be increased, we "would not save a single and we would "create a very touchy situation." He said also that, in contrast to the oft-heard charge to the con- trary, gasoline taxes all go ulti- mately to roads.
