Delegates Take Heart From Scientific Accord UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (AP) U.N. delegates took heart today from two U.S.- Soviet agreements on scien- tific cooperation in a series of space experiments and .on the general economic benefits of disarmament. Delegates expresses guarded hope that the two agreements, to- gether with the easing of the Cuban crisis, signaled a period of comparative harmony in East- West relations. At .Geneva, however, disarma- ment negotiators were deadlocked 'as tight as ever on the key issue of controls. Agreed, Sort Cf In short, the Soviets and. the West were agreed on the great benefits disarmament would bring, but they nearer agreement on disarmament it- self. Adlai E. Stevenson, chief U.S. delegate at the United Nations, hailed the limited agreement on cooperation in space as a "prac- tical demonstration that our na- tions can, despite political differ- ences, cooperate in a highly im- portant field of human endeavor." The fruit of a broad agreement between President Kennedy and Soviet Premier Khrushchev early in the year, it provides for sci- entists of the two nations to work together in the use of earth satel- lites in communications, weather forecasting and mapping of the earth's magnetic field. Worked Out In June The agreement was worked out in summary at Geneva last June by Hugh L. Dryden, deputy di- rector of the National Aeronau- tics and Space Administration and Soviet academician Anatoly A. Blagonravov. Secretary-General U the 110-nation political committee were given the details Wednesday. In 1964-65 the two nations will coordinate the launching of weath: er satellites after working out methods' of exchanging informa- tion gained from experiments this year and next. Study The Sun In 1964-65, called the interna- tional year of the quiet sun, each nation will launch a satellite to map the magnetic field. Next year, they also will coop- erate in experiments with the U.S. communications satellite Echo A12. The agreement omitted any tests with Telstar, the American Telephone and Telegraph Co. communications satellite. The So- viet Union holds that use of space should be limited to governments. In the second agreement an- nounced Wednesday, a joint U.S.- Soviet declaration said world dis- armament would be of multi-bil- lion-dollar benefit to lesser devel- oped nations and would not hurt the economy of any nation. It said the world is spending billion a year for weapons. The declaration was approved unanimously by the General As- sembly's economic committee which is considering a report by a .group of international experts that a shutdown of arms factories would not set off an economic re- cession. The declaration is less binding than a resolution. 22 Pages 5 CENTS WEEKDAY, 10 CENTS SUNDAY and Denton Floyd (in club sporuor.

It appears likely that the U.S.- Soviet diplomatic, wrangles over Cuba will fade with ffie removal of the last of the Soviet "offen- sive weapons." Informants said the t Soviets have'taken a hard stand'in New York negotiations against forcing Cuban Prime Minister Fidel Cas- tro to accept international inspec- tion which President Kennedy seeks-to make certain Cuba stays free of atomic weapons.

Mrs. Eng is charged .in the fatal shooting April 9 of her son-in-law, Thomas Jefferson McClain. The woman's daughter, 18-year old Gloria 'McClain, testified Wednesday that her estranged husband was slain just.after she had talked with him in a neigh- bor's yard.

Bellmon Says He Has Faith In Democrats OKLAHOMA CITY elect Henry Bellmon said today he is starting the state's first Re- publican administration on the ba- sis of "trust and good faith" with Democratic officials Jhe will deal with. The governor-elect said he is flattered by comments of a Texas Republican that he is possible presidential timber, but doesn't think this "is something to take, seriously." Bellmon said he will oppose a plan by Rep. Wiley Sparkman, Grove, to hike to the present 50 cents a year service charge made by tag'agents for the'issu- ance of auto licenses. "I'm not favorably inclined to Mr.- Sparkman's he said. "This amounts to another increase in taxes. I want.to hold the line on taxes and run the gov- ernment on the money, we have." A revenue subcommittee of -the Legislative Council approved Sparkman's plan earlier this week and it is to be submitted to the. 19th session starting in January. at a' news conference, ing its position to the U.N. Secu- rity Council. This would .set the stage for a new and -uncertain phase in .East- West-relations. The United States is talk-with the So- viets on a number of cold war issues. The IL28 jet -bombers, along with 42 missiles pulled ;out of Cuba earlier, were the' nuclear- capable1 long-range arms whose removal Kennedy demanded, terming them offensive weapons. Informed sources said outbound shipments of bombers have been counted at such a rate that com- plete removal should be finished in a matter of by the end of this week; .Soviet Pre- mier Khrushchev promised to have them out by Dec, 20. The Soviets were said to have informed the United States they are withdrawing more than 40 bombers. The U.S. sources de- clined to give.the exact.figure the .Soviets mentioned, but.said the number exceeded previous U.S. estimates. American experts figured early in-the Cuban crisis that.about two dozen IL28s were in Cuba. They later'raised-the count to "more than-30." The Russian .statement giving a larger number than''U.S. intelli- gence estimates was regarded in Washington as additional evidence the Soviets intend to carry out Khrushchev's pledge to remove the planes. Administration officials have said there is no evidence the So- viets are hiding some missiles or bombers in Cuba. If such weap- ons do remain, these.authorities say, they could be detected be- fore they got in .position to strike. Two military leaders drew con- clusions Wednesday from the Cuban crisis. Gen.
