MAP ON PACE 27 'Mac' To Hospital; Absence Now May Force Retirement LONDON (UPI) Prime Minister Harold Macmillan, 69, embroiled in a political fight for survival as leader of his Conservative party, entered a London hospital Tuesday night for a major operation on the eve of his party's conference in Blackpool. An official announcement from No. 10 Downing St., the prime minister's official residence, said, "The prime minister has tonight been admitted to the King Edward VII Hospital for an operation for prostatic ob- st ruction." "II is expected that this will involve his absence from official duties for some weeks and he has asked the first secretary (deputy prime minister), Mr. R. A. Butler, to take charge of the government while he is away." Mr. Macmillan's sudden hospitalization threw the party conference into complete confusion. Even before the news of his illness the conference at Blackpool had been expected to be the scene of an agonized search for a willing and acceptable successor to the aging prime minister. The first reaction at Blackpool was that the 69-year-old prime minister's enforced absence from the political scene almost certainly would dictate his retirement. Observers noted that, even had he been well, he would have needed all his political skill and energy to outwit the critics calling for his resignation. Mr. Macmillan's illness shifted the emphasis here from debate over the prime minister's future to discussion of his successor. The operation meant Mr. Macmillan could not carry out his plans to address the session of the Conservative Party Congress Saturday, when he was to have clarified his position as party leader and prime minister. The unexnected deveirp-ment enhanced Mr. Butlers position as a candidate to take over the party leadership and eventually the premiership should poor health force Mr. Macmillan to step down. The Conserv a t i v e convention will open divided sharply over the continued leadership of Mr. Macmillan in face of various security lapses, the sex and security scandals and the resurgent Labor Party's own heavy challenges. Mr. B u 1 1 e r, one-time chancellor of the exchequer, had been mentioned frequently as a possible successor. Another Hot Tar Covers Car Harrison Driver Gels Surprise As Tanker Spouts Goo A free weather coating, but difficult to polish. That's what a Harrison car got at 7:30 a. m. Tuesday on Lawrenceburg Road west of Cleves. The driver, Carl Hendrlxson, 23, 11504 Biddlnger Rd., Harrison, slowed at a culvert as he approached an oncoming tank truck owned hy the Paul H. Roh Co., Aurora, Ind., and driven by Clarance Hill, 53, 300 11th St., Brook-ville, Indiana. Deputy Sheriff Charles Condia said that while the two vehicles were passing each other, boiling tar shot from a hatch at the top of the tank truck and squirted all over the car except for the right rear window. Mr. Hendrlxson, who had his window open only an inch, got tar on his left sleeve. He said his car had been repainted two weeks ago. Hamilton County also got a free road, resurfacing from the accident. About 500 feet splashed with tar was sanded by county engineers and the company sent a couple of truckloads of gravel to finish the job, the deputy said. Mr. Hendrlxson said Tuesday night that he had spent all afternoon and evening cleaning the car with a solution given him by the Roh Co. He said that three garages had refused to do it, with the plea that "they couldn't," Having need of the car Wednesday he took It home and he and his father, Orvllle Hendrlxson, went to work. About 90 of the automobile was blackened with the tar. The mishap occurred about two miles from the Hendrlxson home. candidate was Lord Home, the foreign minister, and Lord Hailsham, minister of science. The Macmillan illness could throw the struggle wide open. The operation is likely to take place Thursday. Doctors pointed out that prostatic obstruction is not unusual in men cf Prime Minister Macmillan's age. It is caused by enlargement of the prostate gland. Wheal Sale To Reds Near; Okay May Come Today WASHINGTON (UPIi The U. S. - Russian wheat deal moved closer to being a fact Tuesday with administration sources predicting a quick decision and a potential sale of about 275 million bushels if President Kennedy gives a go-ahead Sen. Hubert H Humphrey said a decision on the multimillKU-d o 1 1 a r deal was close at hand. It was said elsewhere that the decision would come early Wednesday. In the Senate, however, a move was started to block the wheat deal at least until after February 1, 1964. Under a resolution offered bv Sen. Thomas J. Dodd, iD, Conn ), and backed by five other senators, a committee would be set up to study the proposal. Senator Dodd said the nine-member committee would report to the Senate by the February 1 date with no transaction to be concluded before then. Co-sponsoring Senator Dodd's proposal were Republican Sens. John S. Cooper. (Ky.i; Peter H Dominick. iColo.i; Karl Mundt. (S. Dak ) and Hugh Scott. (Pa.) and Democratic Sen. William Proxmire, (Wis.). A D M I N I S T R ATI ON sources privately confirmed that potential sales to Russia and Us satellites could reach about 275 million bushels of wheat. One source said Russia alone might take up to 130 million or 140 million bushels. However, the sources continued to Insist that President Kennedy had not made up his mind to ap prove the deal.

Kenneth' To Decision? WASHINGTON i.V President Kennedy Is delaying Wednesday's news conference by two hours strengthening speculation that he might announce at that time his decision on sale of U. S. wheat to Russia. The White House announced Tuesday that Mr Kennedy will meet with newsmen at 5 p. m. (ESTi instead of 3 oclork Wednesday, as specified earlier. It did nothing to confirm or deny that a decision on wheat might be disclosed at the conference. Pierre Salinger, presidential press secretary, was asked the reason for the time change and replied: "It's more convenient for the President's schedule " The schedule is pretty much blank, as officially announced. between $150 million and $200 million worth of grain. His estimate was considerably higher, with five million tons adding up to between $375 and $400 million worth. But his total included possible grain purchases by Czechoslovakia. Hungary and Bulgaria. The administration was believed to have delayed a decision because of failure to obtain bipartisan congressional support for a wheat sale to Russia. But Senator Humphrey said there now are indications of "broad support for a one-shot wheat sale for cash or gold " DESPITE Senator Humphrey's optimism, two Midwestern Democratic sena- Enquirer To Honor Inauguration of The Cincinnati Enquirer's "ENKY" award has been announced by Executive Editor Brady Black.

Frank J. I.ausche said the sale would sabotage the efforts of farmers in satellite countries to rid their nations of Communist masters hy deliberately failing to produce food. Senator Proxmire said the United States would be foolish to "bail out" Russia by providing wheat needed both in the Soviet Union and satellite countries. Sen. Milton R. Young R N.

She would have been, 109 November 1, rural Cuba Cuts Rations; Hurricane Deaths May Reach 5000 By Enquirer Wire Services HAVANA Prime Minister Fidel Castro narrowly escaped drowning in flood waters left by hurricane Flora, a storm that devastated parts of Eastern Cuba and left thousands homeless. The story of Castro's mishap in an Oriente Province river was broadcast to the - - Cuban people Tuesday by Radio Havana in the wake of a government order halving their food rations to compensate for Flora's damage to crops, poultry and livestock. FLORA may go down as the worst storm of the century in this hemisphere. U. S. Weather Bureau said In a preliminary report that total damage would come to "several hundred millions" In staggered Cuba, where Mr. Castro, directing relief operations, ordered any official U. S. help refused. Hardest hit hy the sledgehammer force of the hurricane were f'amagury and Oriente Provinces. The government said it had no means of calculating the exact damage and number of dead since thousands of persons were still isolated hy the storm. The Soviet Tass correspondent in Havana reported to Moscow that "the toll of human casualties Is continuing to grow" but gave no figure. Other reports said nearly 60.000 persons sought refuge in the cities of Camaguey and Santiago. Efforts to reach small villages in the two provinces were thwarted by the destruction of roads and bridges. Flooding rivers made travel by boat or amphibious truck risky. Winds and rain from the hurricane were believed to have completely destroyed crops in the two eastern provinces. In Camaguey, provincial capital, 500 homes were reported destroyed and the lower part of the city was flooded. The government rushed drugs, plasma and typhus vaccine into Camaguey City, where the water and sewage system was disrupted. FLORA BROKE out of Cuba Tuesday after an eight-day rampage that left towns demolished and a death toll which may climb to more than 5000 persons in the Caribbean. It set a new course across the U. S. Atlantic missile range and the Southeastern Bahamas. Flora regained strength Mrs. Nhu's Father Snubs W only One By Enquirer Wire Services NEW YORK The estranged father of South Vietnam's first lady, Ngo Dinh Nhu, came within half a dozen Manhattan blocks of his controversial daughter Tuesday, but gave her a cold shoulder. "I certainly don't Intend to see her," said the father, Tran Van Chuong. He resigned as South Vietnam's ambassador to this country In disagreement with the policies of Mrs. Nhu's bachelor brot her In -1 a w. Vietnamese President Ngo Dinh Diem. However, Mr. Chuong said he might try to see his granddaughter, Mrs. Nhu's 18 -year-old daughter, Le Thuy, who is accompanying her mother on a United States speaking tour. Mr. Chuong has described Mrs. Nhu, 38. as power hungry, and criticized the ruling Diem family for the suicide burning of Buddhists In South Vietnam. HE TOLD newsmen that the only solution to the South Vietnam crisis is a total change In government. "This government cannot be reformed," Mr. Chuong said as he arrived at the Harvard Club on 44th Street Just olf Fifth Avenue for a luncheon Tuesday night hut the Miami Weather Bureau said it offered no further threat to the Inited States East Coast, Western Cuba and Central America. Largest casualty figures came from Haiti where Health Secretary Gerard Phiiippeaux told a news conference today that 2500 persons have already been listed as dead or missing and ' the number may double " MR. castko was on an inspection tour of the hurricane -ravaged Eastern provinces Monday when he came close to death. He and his party were traveling by automobile along the island's Central Highway when they found high water had knocked out a bridge over La Rioja River, between Victoria De Las Tunas and Holguin. Radio Havana gave this account of the developments: Mr. Castro and three aides transferred to an amphibious truck for the crossing. The swift current pushed the vehicle against a tree and waves washed over its open back. Swamped, the truck began to sink. Peasants quickly backed a heavy truck to the water's edge, knotted ropes to the truck and hurled the free ends to Mr. Castro's party. The prime minister and his aids pulled themselves to safety. Toledo Voters O.K. Admeudinent TOLEDO, Ohio i.T The proposed amendment to Toledo's city charter won approval Tuesday by a better than 3-to-l margin, according to unofficial returns. Approval of the amendment means the mayor of Toledo will be elected by voters instead of City Council as is now the case. In the councilmanic primary, all nine incumbent councilmen were nominated. Eighteen of the 28 candidates on the nonpartisan ballot will run for the nine-member Council In November. with the American Friends of Vietnam. Mrs. Nhu, meanwhile, was half a dozen blocks away, closeted in a hotel suite with a South Vietnam r e p r e s e n t a t ive to the Inited Nations. Her father was not the only one steering clear of the outspoken Mrs. Nhu. The White House withheld any form of welcome and there were no olans for her reception by any ranking officials of the government. OTHER criticisms of Mrs. Nhu's visit came from U. S. congressmen, notably Rep. Wayne Hays (I)., Ohio) who denounced the Vietnamese first lady as "a 20th Century Luerezia Borgia." "She is an evil woman and should be kept out of the United states," Mr. Hays said while announcing he had ordered his House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee to determine why the State Department saw fit to Issue her a diplomatic visa. Another Ohio member of Congress, Sen. Stephen M. Young, agreed with Mr. Hays and said Mrs. Nhu's passport should be canceled and she should be compelled to leave the country. "Let her slander us from her native land or from any other country," said Mr. Young, "hut not from our own soil." I J
