color splendor By RICHARD SPONG GlobeGazette Editorial Research Bureau Olympic Games in Rome the XVII Olympaid of the modern era open on Thursday and extend through Sept 11 The smell of history informs the Some Olympics as the va pors of garlic and pasta perfume the streets and ristoranti of the Eternal City Not since Baron Pierre de Coubertin the French the Olympics in Athens in 1896 have the games had a setting that so faithfully reflected their classical heri tage The summer games with all their color pageantry and va riety always present a sharp contrast to the winter events but this year the difference in staging is particularly dramatic The Holy City is even farther re moved from Squaw Valley in time than it is in space The summer gymnasts will compete in amphitheatres and stadiums ihat once knew the look of Ro man gladiators tourists in taxis and buses will suffer the same hindrances that angered chario teers in the same cramped streets 2000 years ago THE OLYMPIC torch is car ried on the same road up Cap itoline Hill the Romans used for triumphal parades paved with the deep Roman cobbles of past centuries The marathon race leads round the Colosseum to the chariotrutted Appian Way Wrestlers who inherited their sport from prehistbry will ex change locks and holds under the 16centuries old arches of the Basilica of Emperor Maxentius And the gymnasts will perform in the ruins of the blocksquare Baths of the Emperor Caracalla The Olympic Rome will pa rade handsome modernity be side its antiquity The 7000 ath letes from 85 nations will liv a brandnew

Trumpeter in foreground wears costume from middle ages m lage of houses built on stilts a f the north end of the city A half dozen new stadiums have been constructed One of these the tiny new Palazzetto dello Sport indeed is described by travel ed itor Horace Sutton as a flying saucer held struts down by concrete ROME ITSELF is putting on a new dress for the Olympics Outstanding features are a new archaeological park along the Appian Way a new road linking a dozen or more parks in the northern and western parts of the city and a new vast Park of the Castelli Romani south east of the city including such well known villages as Frascati Albano and Velletri Capping the program is a huge and badly needed jet airport one of the largest and most mod ern in the world Money has been spent so open handedly in the nature of million that complaints have been raised in Parliament that the funds could have been used better for the relief of waterless sewerless villages in the south ern hills But the Olympics will draw some 20 million tourists about 5 million more than vis ited Italy last year and that plans watered down senators WASHINGTON ffi The issue of medical care for the aged was marked down Wednesday by Sen John F Kennedy for extensive treatment in the fall cam paign after his defeat in the Senate on the issue A 5144 vote defeated the proposal backed by Kennedy to write broad medical care benefits into the Social Security sys tem and to raise payroll taxes to pay for them The defeat of the Democratic measure came only a few Senate bill hits Cubans WASHINGTON W Sen ate voted Wednesday to shut off all foreign aid money to any country which provides military arms or economic assistance to theFidel Castro regime in Cuba It adopted the proposal by Sen Styles H Bridges R as an amendment to a pending foreign aid money bill Under the amendment funds would be withheld from any country which in the presi dents judgment directly or indirectly is selling arms muni tions or implements of war to the Castro regime in Cuba or directly or indirectly is giving or loaning military or economic aid to that regime hours after the Senate had voted down a Republicanbacked plan for a federalstate subsidy to help the aged with their medical bills A less liberal medical help program of federal grants to the states was approved after plans backed by both the presi dential candidates had been de feated The Democratic presidential nominee blamed his setback on the threat of a veto by President Eisenhower of including any health benefit plan in the Social Security system KENNEDY SAID he regarded the vote on this question as a good test of whether it would e possible to pass any progres sive legislation in this politically charged congressional session Once it was taken he said he remaining course was to take the matter to the people if this country in the election in October and November After rejecting the Social Se urity approach to medical care or the aged the Senate Tues lay night passed 912 and sent jto conference with the House a limited bill dealing with this problem The only opposing ews in a utshell was 10 times the immediate postwar rate GIULIO ANDREOTTI Italian defense minister and president of the Olympic organizing com mittee in opening the athletes village made a plea for a hiatus in the cold war for at least the duration of the games He re called that the ancient Greeks suspended all wars for their Olympics But a few squabbles seem al most inevitable The modern games have frequently been marred by wrangling In 1956 for example the Hun garian and Russian wator polo teams threw fists in earnest De Coubertitfs dream of promoting international understanding on thewhole has been realized but no Olympic game would seem quite normal without Its explo sions of temper STRAYER REELECTED MEMPHIS Tenn M Strayer Hudson Iowa was rcclcctcd vice president and scorelary of the American Soy bean Association Tuesday at the close of the groups annual con vention votes came from Sens Strom Thurmond DSC and Barry Goldwater RAriz The provisions of the bill on this point would beef up federal grants to the states to pay med ical bills of needy persons on old age assistance or with incomes which just keep them off the re lief rolls but are inadequate to meet health costs THE SENATE version of the legislation follows the lines of the House bill on medical pay ments but contains more liberal grant formulas Sen Robert Kerr DOkla author of the Sen ate language said he believed the House would accept it Only one Republican Sen Clif ford P Case NJ plus 43 Demo crats supported the Kennedy backed Social Security plan Thirtytwo Republicans and 19 Democrats were opposed Also beaten 6728 was a broad Republican health insurance

aid measure carrying most of the funds re requested byPresident Eisen hower is the last of the major appropriations bills not yet acted on by the Senate To speed action on it agreement was reached Tuesday night to limit debate Sen Mike Mansfield D the assistant majority leader was asked by a news man about spreading reports that Congress may adjourn by Saturday night I wouldnt rule that out as a possibility Mansfield said INDICATIONS WERE that ad journment then a week ahead of the original target date of Democratic leaders hinges largely on whether it appears possible for the Senate and House to compromise on mini mum wage and other contro versial measures The House Rules Committee was expected to clear the way for a SenateHouse conference committee to attempt to adjust differences between minimum wage bills passed by each branch of Congress The Senate bill passed last week would increase the mini mum wage from to an hour The bill previously passed by the House would boost the rate only to and extend coverage to about million fewer employes NICE VACATION OTHERWISE A pair d Teau tiful shiners is Betsy Koteks memento from a va cation trip to Wisconsin A cousin accidentally
