Signing Of Test Ban Treaty Expected
To Moderate Debate On South Africa
UNITED NATIONS, N Y. (UPDI Before the debate started there , bers of the Security Council, were
Western diplomats today ex-j
pected the sinning of the test ban
treaty in Moscow to moderate the
Soviet Union s position in a de
bate on South African racialism.
The current relaxed atmosphere
in U.S. -Soviet relations, informed
sources said, may manifest itself
when the Soviets speak today in
the continuing debate on the
South African government's
apartheid policies.,
'Radical Right1
Doesn't Worry
GOP Chairman
chairman of the Republican par
ly is not worried about the in
fluence of the so-called "radical
right" on his parly.
William E. Miller, New York
congressman, told a news con
ference Monday he is not wor
ried about any party split next
"I do not know what the so
called ultra - right wing is," he
said. "I do not know who it is.
I do not know where It is."
"The Republican party is com
posed of the same kind of people
it has always had and 1 see no
evidence of its leadership falling
into the hands of an ultra group
of any kind or of being infiltrated
by such a group," he continued.
Miller, here for a fast check
on arrangements for next year's
f!OIJ convention, predicted that
the Republicans could win the
1SB4 election if they get a "fair
percentage" of the big city votes.
"We didn't just lose we got
clobbered in the big cities," he
said. He suggested that the Re
publicans have "gained muscle"
in metropolitan areas by setting
up headquarters, pushing get-out-
tne-vole campaigns, and directing
intensive appeals to minority and
lanor groups.

Nixon Warns
On New Pact
LONDON (UPI) Former Vice
President Richard M. Nixon to
day "welcomed" the signing of
a partial nuclear test-ban treaty
but warned the Western alliance ;
not to weaken itself because j
"we've been burned before" by J
Soviet Premier Nikila S. Khrush- j
ehev. ' I
"Although there seems to be a ;
lhaw in the cold war, I am not !
as optimistic about the test-ban
treaty as many Western leaders,
Nixon said. "I think we've been
burned before once with the
spirit of Geneva and lhe other
time with the spirit of Vienna.
"Naturally, I welcomed the
signing of the treaty, hut lhe fact
remains as far as Khrushchev's
cold war activities are concerned,
they have not changed. Subver
version, espionage and support
of Communist fronts in Europe,
Africa, Asia and Latin America
are still his main goals."

Soviet Trtil$
Join Americans
In Quake City
SKOPJE, Yugoslavia (UPI)-So-viet
troops today joined American
soldiers who arrived ten days ago
to aid this city shattered by
About 500 Russian soldiers
brought 125 bulldozers and other
machines to help clear away the
rubble from the July 26 earth
quake which ruined the once
model city and killed an estimat
ed 2.000 persons.
Yugoslav officials said the So
viet army unit came after an
agreement was signed with the
Soviet government. A 250-man
U.S. Army hospital unit arrived
only two days after the disaster
and has been treating injured sur
vivors ever since.
The American medics said they
will stay as long as they are
needed. Today, Lt. Col. Vladimir
Gunjkov, the commander of the
Soviet unit, told newsmen his unit
also will stay as long as it is
The U.S. Army medical team
began treating patients as soon
as it arrived. Gunjkov no sooner
arrived by train with his bull
dozer unit than he, too, said he
wanted to start work immedi
ately. There is a great deal of work
to do.
Yugoslav officials, having end
ed their intensive hunt for bodies
in the rubble, mapped prompt
plans for rebuilding the city. They
announced this morning plans to
throw up prefabricated houses for
12,000 persons before winter sets
The 12,000 will form the nu
cleus of the workers rebuilding a
city which lost 85 per cent of its
dwellings in five seconds of trem
bling earth. About half the pre
quake population of 200.000 have
fled or been evacuated.

On Body Of Playboy Medic
LONDON (UPI) Dr. Donald
Teare, the Home Office patholo
gist, conducted a post-mortem on
the body of Dr. Sephen Ward to
day lo determine officially what
drug the play-boy osteopath used
to commit suicide.
The operation lasted little more
than a half hour, but its results
will not be made known until the
official inquest into Ward's death.
The inquest will be held Friday.
Meanwhile the British press con
tinued to hammer away at the
case which at one point threat
ened to topple the government of
Prime Minister Harold Macmillan.
"There is deep disquiet among
the public, M.P.'s (Members of
Parliament) and lawyers at the
the Daily Herald said in an edi-
, torial today.
j Ward. 50, died last Saturday
from an overdose of barbiturates.
: He had swallowed the drugs the
previous Wednesday, hours before
i an Old Bailey jury convicted him
on two counts of living off the
earnings of prostitutes.
Ward faced a maximum pos
sible sentence of 14 years in jail.
But he died without regaining
consciousness, and never even
knew he had been found guilty.
Ward left behind notes saying
he was sorry lo "disappoint the
vultures" he felt were making
him a scapegoat for the sex-and-sccurity
scandal still reverberat
ing through Brilain.
