On it, and on it alone, depended whether the tests to which the Soviet Union had had to resort in the fall of 1961 would be the' last, or whether a new wave of nuclear tests would sweep our planet." The statement said that "since the U.S.A. was the first to begin nuclear weapon tests and has held many more of them, with its al- lies, than the Soviet Union the Soviet Union, which has in- variably held its nuclear tests only in reply, has the right to the last to hold nuclear tests- in the world." The United States had' under- taken its new series of tests, es- pecially in outer space, in order to achieve a military supremacy over the Soviet Union, the Tass report said. U. S. Seeks Supremacy? But, it. added, "the Soviet Un- ion will not give this satisfaction to those who harbor' aggressive designs against our country, who threaten us and our allies with preventive war." The statement claimed Russia had been pressing for years for a permanent ban on nuclear weap- ons tests, but that, the United States and its NATO allies had sabotaged agreement on the ques- tion.

Then, when Machinists Group Agrees To Wait 60 Days; Sets Up Panel For Talks HYANNIS PORT, Mass. (AP) One of the unions threatening a major strike in the plane-missile-industry yielded promptly to a plea by President Kennedy Satur- day and delayed its strike deadline for 60 days. The International Association of Machinists, AFL- CIO, acted after Kennedy had set up a three-member panel to help negotiate a settlement of the dispute. The machinists' union represents about of the aerospace industry workers who had been sched- uled to strike major missile.manufacturing plants and sites at noon Monday. The other. union involved, the United Auto Workers, AFL-CIO, represents the remainder of the workers. Officials of the auto workers met in Los Angeles to consider Kennedy's plea that work and op- erations continue under present labor-management contract! for a period of 80 days. They said UAW ployed by North American Avia- tion and Ryan con- sider the Kennedy request at mass meetings Sunday. The machinists' union an- nounced its decision to keep its members on the job for the next 60 days through its vice president, Jesse McGlon, in Washington. McGloh said in a statement that "the chief .difficulty impeding a full and direct settlement ii the pathological hostility of these companies toward organized lab- or." he added, "we have acceded to the request of the President of the-United; States. We have negotiations' and directed members aero- space industry -to.'.work -whole- heartedly with President's panel and any other appropriate agency to bring about fair -and just Kennedy said a strike in the aerospace industry "would sub- stantially .delay- our vital missile and space programs and would be contrary to the national interest" Kennedy fired off identical tele- grams to all parties in the dispute urging that work and' operations continue under present labor-man- agement contracts for a period of 60 days. Simultaneously, Kennedy creat- ed, a three-member board to as- sist the Federal Mediation Service in its activities.

Presumably the question they discussed was the big one Gromyko invited Rusk for tea at the Soviet delegation's Villa Rose, and Rusk accepted, expect- ing Gromyko to talk about Ber- lin, Rusk was prepared to return the invitation in order to.extend his probe'into Soviet intentions re- garding the divided city. Recent minor Soviet harassing incidents in Berlin's, airioorridori, pro- nouncements .hava given some American diplomats the idea the Soviet-Union is trying to bring the dispute over the divided city-, to, a head.

The Confederation of Workers, which controls most of the labor orce, ordered a walkout of sugar, extile, construction and farm workers, and chauffeurs. Nothing came of a threatened strike earli- er last week. Disturbances broke out Friday night for the third consecutive day since the military takeover on Wednesday. Police said automo- biles were overturned, and set afire, shop windows broken and rocks thrown. Riot squads used streams of cold water and wielded rubber clubs to restore order. Dozens of persons were rounded up, many of them students.

The confederation said it seeks the return of the constitutional government of President Manuel Prado who was arrested by the military, restoration of the nation- al Congress, and solidarity of all Peruvians toward the defense of democracy. President Prado; 73, whose term was to expire July-28, was held aboard a navy transport anchored off the coast. The junta has promised the president's 'eventual release, but not before July 28. That day marks the start of an annual three-day observance of independ- ence.

This is one more reason why administration author- ities snubbed the overtures from Perez Godoy. As one official put it, "The members of the junta knew what would happen." What happened swiftly was first, suspension of U.S. relations with-Peru; second, imposition of a freeze on about .-million worth of U.S. economic aid funds; of a stop order on delivery of military assistance; and fourth, the start of a study on suspension of premium-price sugar purchases from Peru in- volving mora than million x year.. ;
