17 Nations Will Resume Ban Talks
Texas Governor Connally Also Hit by Bullets
UNITED NATIONS N. Y. (UPI) — The 17 participating nations decided today to resume disarmament negotiations at Geneva next Jan. 21.
The Geneva arms talks first went into session on March 14, 1962, and have been carried on sporadically since. Originally; scheduled as an 18-nation con- j ference, with six countries par- i ticipating from each of the Communist, Western and non-com-mitted groups, the negotiations were boycotted by France from the start.
The General Assembly last Friday voted unanimously for a 46-nation small-power resolution calling for quick resumption of the Geneva parley.

of the small-power resolution paved the way for resumption at Geneva. The Soviet Union backed down on its demand that joint principles of disarmament it agreed to with the United States in 1961 be deleted in a directive to the Geneva negotiators. But it won removal of a reference to changes in posi
tion that brought a narrowing of disarmament differences. And a directive to the conferees to concentrate on measures to prevent surprise attack and steps to prevent further spreading to nuclear weapons was changed to a more general reference to measures to reduce international tension.
