(AP) United States put a new weather satellite. Tiros IV, into orbit today, and its cameras and electronic equipment promptly began sending back photographs of the earth's cloud cover. A 90-foot Thor-Delta rocket, blasting off from this base at a.m., put up the 285-pound satellite. Pictures Received In Washington, the National Aeronautics and Space Adminis- tration announced shortly before 11 a.m. that pictures of cloud cover had been received, and that "indications are that these are good." A spokesman Cor the space agency said pictures were re- ceived at a.m. at the Wallops Island, Va. monitoring station. Officials of Radio Corp. of America said pictures from the satellite were also received at their Princeton, N.J. station. First Whirl A spokesman 'for NASA said these pictures were made during the satellite's first whirl around the earth. In this initial orbit, he said, the satellite was slightly tilted and the quality of pictures would not be expected to be as good as those received during later orbits. The job of putting up the satel- lite went smoothly. At a news conference later, project official Robert Gray gave the report that all looked well. He said that radio signals from the rocket indicated all three stages performed normally. He said signals were picked up from the payload by a station in Wink- field, England. Target The was an orbit path about 400 miles high. Shaped like a tall drum. Tiros IV is almost identical to the three earlier weather-eye satel- lites.

The chairman promptly upheld the plea. "I am convinced this executive plea applies and the chair sustains said Chairman John Stennis, D-Mass. Up to the time of the presidential intervention Stennis had been one of those attempting to elicit answers on the point. The only subcommittee member objecting to the chair's ruling was Sen. Strom Thurmond, D-S.C., whose charges that the military had been muzzled against anti-Communist statements set off the subcommittee's study. Thurmond did not appeal Sten- nis' ruling immediately to the subcommittee membership, a course which would have been Steelworkers Concentrate On Security PITTSBURGH (AP) The United Steelworkers Union will strive for substantial improve- ments in job security and unem- ployment protection for the na- tion's basic Steelworkers in contract talks opening next Wednesday in this steel capital.

At- present the U.S. officers and men serving here are at the disposal of the Vietnamese mili- tary commanders and are being used as the Vietnamese think they are needed for training. communications, general support and transportation.

But .U.S. Army helicopters are drawing fire al- most every time they fly missions and field advisers are subject to ambushes, sniping or grenades, along with their Vietnamese trainees. The casualty rate is ex- pected to increase sharply as more and more American forces are exposed to the Communist guerrillas. New Talks On A-Tests WASHINGTON (AP) The United States and Britain an-, nounced today agreement on Christmas Island in the Pacific as a site for U.S. nuclear atmos- pheric test programs. They also called for an East-Wesl foreign ministers meeting on disarma- ment. The proposal for a foreign min- isters meeting was made by President Kennedy and British Prime Minister Harold Macmil- lan to Soviet Premier Khrush- chev. Proposals A joint U.S.-British statement said that foreign ministers of the three powers should meet in ad- vance of the proposed 18-nation disarmament conference opening at Geneva March 14 and should also be ready to participate per- sonally in the negotiations. The aim of this foreign min- isters effort would be to generate a "supreme effort" to bring the nuclear arms race under control, the joint statement said. On the military side the two Western governments declared that the existing state of nuclear development would "justify the West in making such further series of nuclear tests as may be necessary for purely military reasons." An important factor in the pres- ent state of nuclear development the statement said, is the "recent massive Soviet tests." "The United States and United Kingdom governments" the state- ment then said, "have therefore decided that preparations should be made in various places and as part of these the United King- dom government are making available to the United States government the facilities at Christmas Island." The island, which is a huge atoll, lies more than miles south of Hawaii. It is in a lonely section of the Pacific.
