In addition to the Soviet Union, the United States, Britain and France, Moscow said, Pflland, Czechoslovakia and East and West Germany should participate. The Soviet position was set forth in notes delivered just before Prime Minister Mac millan of Britain conferred in the Kremlin with Premier Khrushchev. They talked foi nearly two hours. In a speech to Soviet tele vision viewers, Macmillan de clared it was possible to achieve improved relations between Britain and the Soviet Union "if we can maki a start and go forward by step."

Set to Back Ike on Berlin-McElroy WASHINGTON ather untenable one in cas tary of Defense McElroy said today the United States is prepared to make good on President Eisenhower's pledge to "not yield one inch on our rights in Berlin." The Berlin issue came up at a House space committee meeting during a discussion of whether the United States might some day change its policy and become the first attacker. Rep. James Fulton (R-Pa) wanted to know whether in view of the tough-appearing Russian attitude on'Berlin the United States is adequately protected in a firm position and "if not, should we mobi- lize in whole or in part." McFXROY SAID the mat- ter had been under "specific consideration" by the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the State Department. Rep. John W. McCormack the House Demo cratic leader, drew from Me Elroy the comment that "our policy is that we will noi attack first." McCormack called this "a f great emergency." Notin VTcElroy's mention that U. S policy was based in part o American public opinion, h :aid "public opinion doesn win war."

Hits Ominous Borrowing Barrier (Editor's Note: There Is growing concern in Washing- ton about the Treasury's difficulties in managing a record national debt'of 286 billion dollars. This is the first of four articles assessing the situation.) By FRANK CORMIER WASHINGTON Sam is having trouble bor- rowing the billions he needs to stay in business. No one doubts he'll get the money he requires, one way or another! The'question is: What price will he have to terms difficulty and pos- sible inflation? If the price gets high enough, a financial crisis could develop. Treasury officials say'they're optimistic but their concern is apparent. The government's plight was dramatized last month when nine billion dollars of loans supplied by private lend- ers came due. Like any harried debtor, Uncle Sam asked his creditors to renew the loans. As encouragement, he offered them new and more generous terms. The corporations and a choice. They could renew their loans for one year and collect 3% per cent interest or renew for three years and get 4 per cent. Historically, these interest rates are very high. In some cases, they were more than double the rate paid on the original loans. Nevertheless, two billion dollars of loans were not re- newed. The lenders wanted their money back. Uncle Sam had expected a sizable demand for cash- but not this much. He didn't have the funds to pay off the maturing loans and was forced to -make an emergency This meant he was able lo get all the credit he needed only on the second attempt. He had expected to get enough the first time. It was a sobering experience for the world's best credit risk. What went wrong?

Discoverer I, the firsl space vehicle aimed into an orbit which would carry it over both the north and south poles, was launched Satur- day from Vandenberg Air Force Base, 170 miles north of Los Angeles. A NAVY SHIP 900 'miles south of the base received faint signals from the bullet; shaped missile shortly after it was fired. Then, for hours, there was nothing. Officials speculated some- thing may have gone wrong with the radio equipment in the Sunday night the Air Force, ballistic missile division here reported: "Additional study of data, received for a- period after liftoff supports the accuracy of preliminary information about l.aunch trajectory and orbit injection.

Iff) Army missilemen went back to work on their lunar- probe rocket today after fail- ing Sunday night to launch a. satellite past the moon and into a solar orbit. The 76-foot rocket, Juno II, stood poised in floodlights for a half hour and the firing crew had progressed to with- in minutes of target time when the shoot was post- poned. No reason was given officially, but it was learned that a power failure caused the decision to scrub. Another effort could ba made tonight, Tuesdayp or.
