A name like "Arbuckle Mountains National Park" has a ring to it that we like.

Russell of Georgia branded today as a political move President John F. Kennedy's com- ments about this city's racial problems. Russell said the President's "stamp of approval upon the con- stant violation of the city laws is certain to encourage the importa- tion of many other professionals and notoriety seekers and worsen an already bad situation." The Democratic senator wired his criticism to Albany Herald editor James H. Gray, who also is state Democratic Party chair- man. The President said at his news conference that it was "wholly inexplicable" to him why Albany officials wouldn't sit down with Negro leaders to iron out prob- lems. Russell's telegram criticizing the President was only one of sev- eral coming into or going out of Albany in reference to the racial situation. New York's Sen. Jacob Javits, a Republican, sent a wire to a Negro leader promising to come hesitation" if needed. Javits com- mended Kennedy for his com- monts in support of the integra- tion effort. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. of Atlanta, in jail as a result, of his Albany integration activities, and Dr. W. G.

City officials have refused to negotiate with .Negro leaders until King and other out-of-town inle- grationists leave Albany.

The British Medical Journal re- ported she was one of four British cases known to have incurred thrombosis while taking the pill. The British Medical Journal said that in the United States there'apparently are a number of examples of women taking Enovid, the brand name of one contraceptive pill, developing thromboembolic complications, some of them fatal. No More Risk? We have been informed that these cases were reviewed recent- ly at a private conference in the U.S.A. where it was concluded that oral contraception involved no more risk of thromboembolism than normal it said. "However, the risk is greater in pregnancy than at other times and it must be asked whether even this risk should be run just for contraception." In the American Medical Asso- ciation Journal last month, Dr. Edwin J. DeCosta, a Chicago gyn- ecologist, after studies of women, wrote that the only hint so far of serious effects from the contraceptive pills were several cases of thrombophlebitis in wom- en taking one drug. He said, how- ever, that no indication was found that the drug was'responsible, Americans Died?

(NEWS Staff SODA Prepares Request For Park U. S. Jail Waits For Soblen But It May Be Long Vigil; Legal Tangle's A Nightmare LONDON (AP) Britian instructed El Al today to fly fugitive spy Dr. Robert Soblen to the United States and prison. The Israeli airline said it would not do so, the Home Office announced. A spokesman for the Home Office Soblen's offi- cial guardian while he is in Britain said the airline stated it was acting, on instructions from the Israeli government. The Home office abandoned plans to get Soblen out of the country this evening. Home Office officials were trying to resolve the situa- tion in talks with El Al representatives at London- Airport. I Attorneys for the 61-year-old psychiatrist moved at once to block any effort to .fly him out on another airline. They said such transportation by another line would require' issuance of a de- portation order, which 'could be attacked in court. Pan American Airways said Soblen would not be on its only remaining flight to New York to night. "We have been given to under- stand that Soblen cannot be car- ried on anything but a direct flight to New a spokes- man said. "Our flight tonight puts down at Shannon, Ireland." The El Al line brought Soblen to London, en route to New York, and nominally at least had the responsibility for completing" his trip. A diplomatic source said the By W. L. KNICKMEYER-------TishomirigO, met at Turner Falls to whip the proposals into final Southern Oklahoma Develop- sh r ment Association proposals for new federal park areas in' Mur- ray, Johnston and Carter .coun- ties got a final going-over last night in preparation for sending a specific request to the De- partment of the Interior. The project would add a num- ber of areas of scenic and geo- logical interest to Platt National Park as "satellite" areas. Actual additions'to Platt Park itself are not contemplated. The satellite areas, however, would be administered by Park Service personnel. Some 50-60 persons, including representatives of Sulphur, Da- vis, Wynnewood, Ardmore and Some local 'ranchers met with the SODA group to express their concern over the federal gov- ernment coming in and taking things over. Scope of the proposals' was carefully limited, as a'result, to areas the owners of which are definitely interested in selling. And a paragraph was inserted in the request, to the effect that SODA recommends the National Park Service or the federal gov- ernment not move to acquire land unless it is offered for sale. Glen Key, Sulphur, chairman of SODA'S park expansion com- mittee, emphasized to the NEWS this morning that the group "aims 'on 'Permingtbn Creek iri- which have no commercial use, either for grazing or other pro- ductive purposes." One exception to the "must- be-for-sale" rule is Turner Falls itself. This area is-owned by the town of Davis, and' cannot be sold without consent of the Davis people. However, town officials asked that the Falls be included in the request for study by the federal government. Actually, the entire proposal is not a specific offer by SODA to the government, but only a request that the areas listed be studied as possible recreation areas. Included in the proposals, in addition to Turner Falls, are an eluding Devil's Den, the Cool Creek area in the Arbuckles, Cedar Canyon, north of. Ard- more, Tulip Creek and Old Viola. Also in the report is a propos- al from the Chickasaws, repre- sented at the meeting by Gov. Floyd Maytubbe, for an amphi- theatre-type development, proiv ably near where Chickasaws could put on shows as a commercial tourist at- traction. The Chickasaws, Key noted, are not asking for money from the government but only for a study of the feasibility and com- mercial possibilities of such an operation.

Israeli government has appealed to Britain to relieve El Al of the responsibility. The London office of El Al con- firmed that it had received Home Secretary .Henry Brooke's order directing it to 'carry Soblen to New York, where he' faces a life sentence for spying for the Soviet Union. A government 'source in Jeru- salem said the Israeli government was "shocked" at the British gov- ernment's demand that El Al fly the 61-year-old psychiatrist to the United States. Some Israeli Cabi- net members were believed to have had second thoughts about Soblen's expulsion from Israel. An Israeli parliamentary source reported Tuesday that Transport Minister Bar Yehuda had in- structed El Al's London office not to accept custody of Soblen again. El Al landed him in Britain July 1 when he slashed a wrist and his abdomen while being flown to New York after Israel expelled him. Announcing the decision to de- port the peddler of wartime se- crets to the Soviets, British Home Secretary Henry Brooke told the House of Commons he was is- suing a directive to El Al to re- turn Soblen to the United States. Brooke explained that he had decided his proper course was to return Soblen to the status he had before he knifed his way into amendments to the controversial i Britain-an El Al passenger en Doctors Get Revised Law On Medicare REGINA, Sask. special session of the Saskatchewan Leg- islature enacted Thursday night medical care insurance Jaw agreed upon last week by the province's Socialist government and the medical profession.

Separate East German Treaty Is Likely WASHINGTON (AP) Soviet Premier Khrushchev probably will sign a separate peace treaty with Communist East Germany this year. But it is highly unlikely he will give the German Reds the power to plunge the world into war over Berlin. American leaders are now gen- erally agreed that a new Berlin crisis is. in the miking. They are receiving a steady low of Soviet-inspired rumors of rouble in European capitals. They get forewarnings, too, through such acts as increased Soviet air- craft operations in the Berlin air corridors and the Red threat to shoot down an American helicop- er at Berlin earlier this week. who had issued the memo. __ Tha signs of a new fkreup of crisis are growing almost every day. Yet there is also evidence that Khrushchev has not made all of his final decisions as he conr tinues his pressures to get the United States, Britain and France to abandon West Berlin. just before he left Moscow last I Several weeks ago Kennedy week.

Ulbricht flew from Berlin to the Soviet Union Wednesday. The latest direct account of Khrushchev's views was reported to Washington by retiring U.S. Ambassador Llewellyn Thompson without too much further delay. He also gave Thompson to under- stand that he wants to develop further his case for a change in the status of West Berlin. This could mean that he intends to open up the whole issue in the United Nations General Assembly in the fall, again claiming that the continued Western occupation of the city creates a threat of war which could be eliminated if the West would bow to his demands. that the United States will not withdraw from West Berlin and will if necessary use force to de- fend 'the Communist-encircled city. No one here is really sure yet that Khrushchev believes this message. Kennedy and Secretary of State Dean Rusk are known to believe, however, that if any doubt re- mains in mind about Western intentions, it is a fairly small one. The best informed officials here believe that in the end Khrushchev will choose to avoid war but that he will go through with the peace 'treaty threat 'Official Washington is all but convinced, however, that Khrush- chev will see that the treaty con- tains some provision specifying reserve rights for the Soviet Union on the more critical Berlin prob- lem. Otherwise Khrushchev would be in the position of giving Ul- bricht a much'freer hand-in de- termining the fateful, future of the Berlin problem than it seems to be in the Soviet Union's interest. The power to force the issue on Berlin is the. power to start World War III.

Jones said about a dozen per- sons at the Liberal airport saw the lights about p. m. He said Capt. Jack Metzker, Central Airlines pilot aloft en- route from Wichita to Amarillo also told airport officials he saw the objects, which he said were moving higher and faster 'than any plane'Be'lad ever seen. Jones said Metzker was flying at about to feet at the time. He said Metzker reported seeing one after leaving Guymon. The Federal Aviation Agency said no planes which could pro- duce such lights were scheduled in the area at the time. After landing at Amarillo, Metz- ter told nwsmen: "People I talked to after land- ing seem to think it was a meteo- rite, but it wasn't like any meteo- rite I ever saw." Amarillo had no other reports of unidentified flying objects. Al- suquerque FAA also said nothing was seen there but that they had a report from Liberal and another Torn LaJunta, Colo.
