JFK averts
over RS70's
dent Kennedy today averted a
showdown House floor battle
over the RS70 airplane with an
lltii nour promise to step up
spending on development of the
craft if a new study justifies
such action.
Shortly after the chief execu
tive made the pledge, the influen
tial House Armed Services com
mittee laid aside a recommenda
tion that Congress "direct" the
administration to move ahead
faster on the big jet plane.
Committee Chairma i Carl Vin
son, D-Ga., claimed the House
group had won its battle to speed
up work on the reconnaissance
strike bomber. Some other com
mittee members were less certain
of the final outcome.
A letter to the committee from
the President promised an im
mediate restudy of the RS70
program. Kennedy said he would
spend extra funds on the 2,000-
mile an hour aircraft if the study
shows it would be profitable,
Kennedy s letter and one irom
Defense Secretary Robert S. Mc-
Namara spelling out the compro
mise were submitted to the House
committee at an unannounced
closed-door session.
Today's development marked a
change oc view by McNamara
just as the committee was sec to
carry the fight to the floor.
Kennedy made it plain in his
letter that he was not surrender
ing and would not surrender what
he considers his right as com
mander in chief to make the final
decisions on such issues as the
He cited the constitutional pro
vision governing his powers over
the military and said "I must in
sist" on exercising those rights.
But he said he recognized also
an obligation to give "every pos
sible consideration in sucn mat
ters to the wishes of Congress."
He then referred the committee
to the McNamara letter which
said in part:
We are initiating Immediately
a new study of the RS70 program
in the light of the recommenda
tions and the representations ot
the Armed Services Committee...
If technological developments...
advance more rapildy than we
anticipated. ..we will wish to take
advantage of these advances by
increasing our development ex
penditures..." The committee, in a sia muion
defense procurement bill, had rec
ommended an authorized outlay
of $491 million next year to push
the RS70 toward actual produc
tion. Interim group

Possible joint
space efforts
seen by Nilcifa
MOSCOW (UPD-Premier Niki-
ta Klirushchev said today Russia
is ready to work with the United
States in exploring space, but he
added the realistic condition
that full cooperation must await
a disarmament agreement.
The Soviet premier, in a note
to President Kennedy, suggested
that a first step could be made
with a pact for joint rescue op
erations for astronauts forced to
make an emergency landing on
return to earth.
Khrushchev said he envisioned
American-Soviet collaboration to
put a spaceship on the moon. But
he added the joint efforts would
be "limited" without an East-West
disarmament agreement
Foreign ministers, now meeting
at a disarmament conference in
Geneva, have made no significant
progress. - ; :;

It is "very desirable," Khrush
chev said, fur the two nations to
sign a pact providing for aid in
searching for and rescuing
"spaceships, Sputniks and cap
sules that descend to earth due
to accident."
Such an agreement seems
even more necessary because the
point in question here is the sav
ing of the lives of cosmonauts,
those intrepid explorers of uni
versal space, Khrushchev said.
Khrushchev s note, as reported
by the Tass news agency, was
in reply to one sent by Kennedy
March 7 suggesting the two na
tions consider concrete measures
to explore space jointly.
Disarmament Involved
The Soviet premier said it was
obvious" that the scope of space
cooperation depended in some de
gree on the solution of the dis
armament problem now under
discussion in Geneva with vir
tually no progress so far.
Kennedy had suggested the
joint exploration of space in his
Inaugural Address and his Mate
of the Union Message in January,
1961. The day after Lt Col John
Glenn made his orbital flight last
Feb. 20, Khrushchev BUggestel
the two nations pool their efforts.
In his latest note, Khrushchev
told Kennedy the Soviet repre
sentatives in the U.N. Outer
Space Committee will be in
structed to meet with American
representatives to "discuss prac
tical problems of cooperation.
