Some bus windows were broken. A crowd of about 400 shook fists and shouted and "murderers" as the bus passed. West Berliners have been stirred to hot anger by the shooting of a refugee at the wall Friday and the fact that he lay dying in plain sight just out of reach of the West Heavy Escort After bus stonings on previous days, West Berlin police gave the one today a heavy escort sedans, a radio truck and two trucks of alert police. But young- sters with their pockets full of rocks were able to get within 30 yards of the bus. The Soviet soldiers did not re- ply to the attack, -nor could any reaction be seen on their faces. 3rd Straight Day It was the third, day in a row that Soviet vehicles have been at- tacked by young West Berliners. The buses are an easy target be- cause they come through Check- point Charlie, the crossing point on the wall for non-German ve- hicles, every evening between and 6 p.m. Tonight's bus arrived at p.m., and the crowd was there to meet it. The attack occurred despite an order from Mayor Willy Brandt to West German police to crack down hard on rioters as a result of wild weekend demonstrations which saw Americans as well as Soviets attacked. East and West Berlin police also were.involved.ituthe.melees. Brandt appealed jpr .calm a radio speech. Thousands of angry West Ber- liners marched, shouted and threw stones at Soviets, Americans, the wall, East German border guards and their own police Sunday. Slingshots Used Huge slingshots were used to hurl tear gas grenades from the Communist side. The rioting was to protest shooting by East Berlin border guards of a young refugee trying to escape Friday. He was left to die slowly on the East side of the wall while American troops and West police watched from the other side. They Won't Talk Maj. Gen. Albert Watson, the U.S. commandant, disclosed the Soviet command had refused an invitation to discuss the increased tension with American, British and French commandants at U.S. headquarters. Watson had offered to lift a ban on the Soviet com- mandant visiting the U.S. sector. Young West Berliners best available estimates put their num- ber at about into the early morning hours. From A Truck A young redhead, who was not identified, spoke through the loud- speaker of a West Berlin police truck. The truck was by about 500 demonstrators from West Berlin's City Hall down Kurfuerstendamm, the city's main street. Hundreds of cars followed, tooting their horns. Honking cars appeared near Checkpoint Charlie, at U.S. head- quarters and at Bernauerstrasse border street where many (Continued on Two) Lions Will Hear Talk By Kramer Featured speaker at the regular luncheon meeting of the Lions Club tomorrow will be H.

Cannon, D-Nev., said to- day the United States stands de- fenseless against attacks that could come from orbiting Soviet space vehicles. By placing the major emphasis of its space efforts on scientific exploration and civilian, applica- tions, it may be offering the So- viet Union the- opportunity of "an enormous and" possibly insur- mountable military Cannon said in a speech prepared for Senate delivery. "I see no evidence that there is a national, authoritative intent to accelerate the earliest practic- able development of -urgently needed military (space) capabili- he said. "Where, for example, is the necessary project to develop a means of intercepting, inspecting and destroying, if necessary, hos- tile satellites that could.bear su- per megaton bombs down on Cannon, a-brigadier general, and jet pilot in the Air Force Reserve, said that such a development pro- though advocated by the military- -services, has been spe- cifically delyaed by civilian offi- cials; "To the best of my Cannon said, "no defense what- ever exists -at this time against any military attack that might be made from the space region even though such attacks are within the weapons tests."

Joe Bailey Cobb of Tishomingb turned against the .proposed east- ern turnpike after: efforts1 to route it through his .senatorial'district were unsuccessful, Gov. J.

Edmondson .answered one of the charges made by Cobb-at meet- ings last Wednesday .of the. two legislative committees he heads- Roads and Highways 'and Turn- pike. 1 Cobb said the Turnpike Author- ity -paid.for. of a proposed .Henryetta to Sulphur toll .road but did not receive one. He voiced opposition to present .plans to. finance a toll road from Henryetta to Hugo. "Sen. Cobb was' very anxious to have a feasibility study made on a turnpike proposed from Hen ryetta to Sulphur and.was a strong supporter of that proposed toll road which would have run into his Edmondson said. was very.anxious to have Ithe study .made and it was made.-It was just as complete and I thorough as any others that were mafle, "TIM reason it was not pursued was that the feasibility report showed' that it was not- feasible.

Workers Resume Strike At Space Center In Defiance On Federal Court's Order Kerr Calls For Cut In Spending WASHINGTON Rob- ert S. Kerr, D-Okla., said Sunday lie would be opposed to any tax cut, this year or next, unless, "we had a proportionate reduction in expenditures." Kerr, who led the opposition in defeating President Kennedy's plan for old age medical care fi- nanced through Social .Security, said he didn't expect dent would defeat either himself or anyone else who had opposed him. 'I don't think he will make an effort to do any Kerr told a television panel program. "I think men where he thinks it -will .benefit him. I think he has a perfect right to do so." Kerr refused to say whether1 he thought there was'any chance for pairing tax cuts and tax reforms as Kennedy has said he plans to try to do next year. For .himself, Kerr said, "My position is that there are some adjustments that need to'be made. If .they result in reduced revenue not go along with them unless we had a proportionate reduction in Kerr, chairman! .of the Senate Aeronautical- arid Space1 Sciences Committee, -said he thought the United States had an over-all lead in the space.race with Russia, but was behind in the area of big boosters. He thought the Russian feat of orbiting two men at the same time was more significant for what "they didn't for what they -did.; "The most significant thing as I see it is that-they .-didn't make con- Kerr said. "We don't know whether they tried to join-up and failed. We don't, know whether they can do it or not" As to the race to-the moon, .he said, "No man knows who will get there Actually no man knows, whether either of us will get there...I believe we-'have more knowledge of what there is to ,be overcome and achieved out there ...we think we have an excellent chance to get .there first" Soviets Explode Another A-Bomb UPPSALA, Sweden Russians set. off .another -nuclear test blast today in the atmosphere over the Novaya Zemlya region in .northern Russia, Swedish sci- entists reported. The-explosion was recorded si- multaneously at Uppsala Univer- sity Seismological Institution and at the Stockholm .Geodesy Insti- tute at EST. 1 Uppsala scientists set 'the strength of the' explosion at 12 megatons while Prof. Arne Bjer- hammar, of the-. Stockholm insti- tution estimated. it to be. around 10 megatons. A megaton is equiv- alent to. a million, tons of TNT. Today's, explosion was the fourth to 'be -recorded here, in the current series, which the Russians started Aug. 5 and continued Aug. 7 and Aug. 10, all over Novaya Zemlya. SEN. ROBERT S.

Elliot Hagan of Georgia, and Mayor and Mrs. Malcom-Maclean of-Savannah. The ship, was named in honor the 320-ton sailing vessel with auxiliary steam power that first crossed the Atlantic in 1819 using steam power part of the way.. Although the. Savannah has undergone, previous sea trials, the present trip marks her first excursion to a regular commer- cial port. The ship has vast capabili- ties. With -a single fueling of its mammoth atomic furnace, it .could cruise for 3V4 years, for. a distance of .much farther -than the .distance between the earth and the moon. It Is fueled by pounds of uranium oxide, the power equivalent of .tons fuel oil. The ship's' designed speed is 20 23 statute miles per hour but she already has done up to 24 knots in trials off Yorktown. (Continu.d on P.g. Two) Smallpox Victim Creates Big Job For Officials NEW YORK offi- cials of two nations worked against an-awesome deadline to- day to find and vaccinate all per- sons who may. have come in con- tact with a young Canadian small- pox victim. The stricken James Wil- liam 14, fie where'from Sao Paolo, Brazil, Aug. 11 .on a plane with more than 80 other persons, including his.parents and a broth- er and sister. He passed- through Idlewfld. Airport, traveled by cab to Grand Central Terminal and sat in the huge station's waiting room for hours before boarding a train for Toronto. In Toronto the boy, described by his missionary father- as feeling "under the was taken to a doctor .arid eventually to a Canadian hospital. Canadian authorities' said the boy's illness was virtually certain to be smallpox, although confirm- ing tests were still to be made. U.S. Public Health Service offi- cials said there was no doubt. It was the first confirmed case of smallpox in the United States since 1947, 'they said: The development left New York City with the staggering task of running down all who may have come in contact with the boy here those who .handled his baggage at the airport, the cab driver who drove the family to the city and those few -from a among the thousands.of unknowns at Grand -Central Terminal who may have touched or passed near the boy in the waiting room. The city health department set up 12 vaccination centers in Man- hattan and the Bronx, while issu- ing a call for all those who may have come in contact with the boy to step forward without delay. Smallpox is a highly communi- cable disease that can be fatal if unchecked. While the city-vaccinated more than 300 persons at its centers the. U.S. Public Health Service gave vaccinations to more than 400 others at Idlewild Air- port. Centers in'the city and at the airport were put on a round-the- clock schedule, while officials tried to hunt down the cab driver who transported-the Orr family. The father, who first described the driver as -a Negro, 'later said he.was white with a dark com- plexion and a foreign accent. There are-about cabs in New York City with 'some drivers. Aerolineas Argentinas provided a passenger list of its Flight 322 from Brazil, and efforts were be- ing made to track down each pas- senger. Some "have scattered to far places. More difficult still is'the task of finding, the boy's fellow train passengers on the trip to Canada.- The father says the family' re- mained in its coach during the journey. Most difficult of all- is the 'task of finding those who were in the Grand Central Terminal waiting room with the boy. Here the, chief weapon has been the city health department re- peatedly requesting papers and on the. air that, all persons in doubt step forward arid be vaccinated. Most persons are vaccinated against .smallpox as children, but such immunity generally can last no more than five years. Few Report For Work, Then Leave; Moonshot Program Is Still At Virtual Standstill HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) A strike at the Marshall Space Flight Center apparently resumed today when workers, after returning to their jobs briefly, walked off again- A spokesman for the flight center, heart of much of the nation's missile and space development work, said: "Although the federal-districts, court has enjoined the strike, virtually all the tocal 55.8 International Brother- hood of Electrical Workers members expected to resume at work failed to appear construction sites. The few members who did re- piort had not begun work at 10 a.m. "A majority of other skills in- the strike did- report to work sites. Although some of those reporting started to work, most of them, have .by now left construction sites." The Marshall spokesman was asked if operations at the space center were again at a standstill. He replied: "It would appear so." The strike had -lasted a 'weekl -Nearly workers imployed by-private -contractors were und- er, a federal court order to end their walkout. The strike :was called in. pro- test against a handful of non- union -electricians on one job. The.

Earlier today it appeared the strike was at an end, with the almost workers returning to work. The spokesman, at the -space center said no picket lines .were on the gates, and that the first crews were arriving as sched1 uled, and "we assume they all will.return." But then it turned out that most of the 150 striking electri- cians were not on the job, he said, and even most of the more than buildings- trades workers were either idle on the site or had left. Offensive Kills Few Guerrillas SAIGON, South Viet Nam (AP) Viet Cong guerrillas, following military tactics won China .and North Viet Nam for communism, have survived a massive government offensive in the southern swamplands. For, four days crack govern- ment troops, supported by U.S. Marine .Corps helicopters, fighter planes-and armored, river craft, rolled across Ca Mau Peninsula seeking guerril- las who have turned it virtually into; a-little Communist state. How-MamyT, The government high command is arguing-with American advis- ers over the tally-of Viet Cong dead; The government claims 124, the Americans GO. The-Viet Cong main body got away, again. .The four-day operation was brainchild of Gen. Paul D. Hark- ins, commander of U.S. forces in Viet Nam and Thailand. Harkiiw and his high command worked on the planning for three monthi and were highly optimistic when it got under, way. Now What?

Little is known of the belt except: 1. It could imperil astronauts in future space flights, and hence might cause the United States to delay its Project Mercury pro- gram. 2. It emits radio frequency sig- nals, and therefore may interfere with some radio astronomy. The presence of .the radiation belt, 600 miles and higher above the earth, was disclosed by'Dr. James Warwick of the University of Colorado's high-altitude observ- atory, in a copyright article by science writer Victor Cohn of the Minneapolis Sunday Tribune. Dr. Warwick's -comments were substantiated by Dr. James A. Van Allen, who iiL-1958 discovered the principal radiation belt en- circling the earth. The Colorado scientist said, the effect of the Pacific high-altitude test blast last month was to great- ly intensify .the so-called Van Allen radiation ring. ring, he.said, consists of .high-energy H-bomb electrons, invisible atomic particles, which follow-the.path of the earth's mag- netic equator. The Minneapolis Tribune described the ,new jadia-, tion ring as probably a temporary layer under the inner :part of'the" Van Allen belt. "By said Dr. War- wick, "I mean possibly months or it may mean five years. We are maintaining constant observation, and I hope that by Sept. 1 we may have more information." At Southampton, N.Y., where he is vacationing, Dr. Van Allen said the new belt has "increased the potential danger for manned space but detailed explo- ration and scientific examination is needed before the effects on Project Mercury flights can be determined. "I don't want to prejudge the Dr. Van Allen said, "but the radiation is a matter of con- cern arid it is conceivable that Mercury flights might have to. bo delayed." Van Allen said the situation con- ceivably could lead also to delay in similar flights by Russians. Variations of the Van Allen belt's radiation have been studied, for a year with the help of a satellite called Injun, launched for scientific purposes on June 29, 1961. Dr.-Van.
