U.S. Pledges To Aid Allies
Which Base American Planes
WASHINGTON (AP) The United States pledged yesterday to
go to the aid of its allies which might be attacked by Russia for
allowing American spy planes to use its air bases.
At the same time, the State Department accused Soviet Pre
mier Nikita S. Khrushchev of waging a campaign of threats and
intimidation against small countries innocent of any wrongdoing.
The State Department fired this double-barreled reply to
Khrushchev's threat to aim Soviet rockets against any foreign
bases which serve as takeoff or landing points for intelligence
flights into Russia.
Spy Plane Pilot May Be Tried
MOSCOW (AP) The Soviet Union notified the United States
Tuesday that Francis G. Powers, pilot of the American spy plane
downed deep inside Russia on May Day, "will be brought to ac
count under the laws of the Soviet State."
This indication that the pilot may undergo a trial for espion

reconnaisance flight" of Powers' high-flying Lockheed U2 jet.
Johnson, Cannon Defend Position
WASHINGTON (AP) Sen. Lyndon. B. Johnson (D-Tex) and
Rep. Clarence Cannon (D-Mo) drew warm applause in the Senate
