Spock, the renowned pediatrician known more recently for his antidraft activities, made the gift to the university in December 1966 and claimed a $22,000 charitable deduction on his income tax return. The IRS contended, however, the collection of Spock's first editions, a library of 363 medical and psychiatric reference books, manuscripts and other memorabilia, was worth only $6,200. Spock, 65, was subsequently served with a deficiency notice In which the IRS claimed $8,870 additional taxes for the year. !

When asked If the Cuban government officials seemed apologetic the Rev. Goodspeed said they didn't say much towards apologizing but did put on quite a show of treating the subjects "royally." Fr. Goodspeed, whose ankle was broken about five months ago by two hoodlums on a walk near the church and now walks with a limp, said he received very much personal attention and assistance from the Cuban personnel. When asked about the faith of the passengers on the plane the Rev. Goodspeed said they all became a very closely knit and jovial group but some confided in him that they had depended silently upon him to carry along their silent prayers and their "gospel of hope." The $405 in so-called contributions from the passengers was returned to them. who, recognizing him as a priest, asked him about the U.S. government policy of church and politics. The priest replied that preaching of any subject was to the choice of the individual. "Lord knows what they put in their paper though," he said. Finally the group was transferred 100 miles to the Varede-ro Airport, a trip which took about three hours in an uncomfortable, un-air-condi-tioned bus. The passengers then dined on filet mignon, potato biscuits, salads and ice creams and were told to drink "all the beer, rum, wine that you want." Soon after they were transported by Airlift International Inc. to Miami where they arrived about 5:12 p.m. Cuban officials would not allow the group to return via National for "security" reasons.

However, the Rev. Good-speed said "I cannot give too much praise for National Airlines, especially the stewardess." The "all hands up" was reported by the priest as a recurring order along with the threat of "not landing in Havana" if the passengers did not obey the stewardess. According to Rev. Good-speed "time seemed quick to Havana" and the black power saboteur was quickly whisked off the plane by personnel from the Havana guard, police and aviation departments. The marooned passengers were soon taken to a large waiting room of the airport separate from the crew of the plane and two American servicemen. In the waiting room the passengers were asked to identify themselves by such means as driver's license and draft cards and were offered fruit drinks, coffee and cocktails along with what the Rev. Goodspeed described as a "magnificient" meal of meat and vegetables. From there they proceeded to the cocktail lounge where again drinks were left to the discretion of the individual as he witnessed from the huge plate glass window the fanfare of the arrival of the Prime Minister of Algeria. Although the passengers were at all times kept under guard there were a number of Cuban reporters and photographers witnessing the event. The Rev.

Aloyslus B. Goodspeed, assistant pastor of St. Ann's Catholic Church, thought, but "I wouldn't want the same experience again," he said when he finally reached West Palm Beach, Tuesday. Arriving at Palm Beach International Airport at 9:15 a.m. Tuesday, nearly 24 hours late, the Rev. Goodspeed said the trip was "educational and Interesting." "About one-half hour out of New Orleans I was sitting next to the window when I heard the announcement 'We're going to Havana'," the Rev. Goodspeed said. Actually he was working a crossword puzzle, which he admitted he continued, taking the announcement lightly. Then a stewardess came down the aisle confirming the announcement. Soon afterwards the Rev. Goodspeed and 51 other passengers heard the gruff order of "all hands up." A surly voice informed the passengers "I am now captain. I am from black Nigeria and contributions for 'black power' will be made. As the voice continued the bewildered passengers were told that "black power" would hijack one plane daily for the next ILK) days. Asked about his reaction, the Rev. Goodspeed implied it was "just another hijacking." 5 Arrested On Affray Charges Five members of a Lantana family, arrested after a street corner brawl, have been scheduled fur arraignment in Palm Beach County Criminal Court on Monday, Nov. 25, it was announced Tuesday.

Jorden held out hope the South Vietnamese government would call off Its boycott and eventually send a delegation to Paris. He said consultations' were continuing and "as soon as a date has been decided for the next meeting we will announce it." A North Vietnamese source in Paris said Wednesday's meeting had been cancelled at the request of the United States. He said Hanoi had agreed "readily" because it did not want to embarrass the United States. The postponement was ordered after the United Stales began secret talks with the Hanoi delegation on the expanded talks that were to have included the United States, North Vietnam, South Vietnam and the Viet Cong. A Viet Cong delegation arrived in Paris Monday. There was no indication when the substantive four-way negotiations might begin. But hopes for any quick solution faded Tuesday when Mine. Nguyen Thi Binh, the Viet Cong guerrilla fighter who heads the National Liberation Front delegation, took an uncompromising stand at a Paris news conference. The Viet Cong delegation chief flatly ruled out any ceasefire in South Vietnam before the withdrawal of American troops. Mrs. Binh denounced the Saigon government as "a clique of traitors in the pay of the American government," and called for creation of a coalition government in Saigon from which the present South Vietnamese leaders would be excluded. Mrs. Binh also said there must be reunification of North and South Vietnam on Viet Cong terms, and that the National Liberation Front is the de facto government controlling four-fifths of Saigon. She heatedly denied the NLF is Communist. The Viet Cong chief negotiators called on the United States to enter into immediate talks on a peaceful Vietnam settlement without waiting for Saigon's decision.
