Khrushchev today reiterated Russia's refusal to help finance United Nations operations in the Middle East, the Congo and Yemen. Khrushchev defended the Soviet position in replying to a letter from British philosopher Earl Bertrand Russell which expressed disappointment tliat the Soviet government "finds it no longer possible to render financial aid to the work of tlie U.N. organization." The Soviet premier's reply was broadcast by Moscow Radio. Khrushchev said the Soviet Union was "resolutely against" weakening the foundations of the U.N.O. or bringing about its "disintegration." But he added: "The so-called financial crisis of the United Nations organization is essentially not a financial but a political question, a direct result of the systematic wolation by the Western powers of the U.N. charter." Young armless couple marries LIVE OAK. Fla. (UPI) — A young, armless couple was married in a smalll country church here Friday night, culminating a two-month romance by mail. Salesman Martin Ravellette, 23 of Klamath Falls, Ore., and his 19-year-old bride, Jo Beth John son of Live Oak, planned a leisurely honeymoon, traveling toward his hometown in Oregon in his specially built car. They were married in a quiet ceremony in the Pine Level Baptist Church, a small white frame building nestled in this small Florida city. Two months ago, Jo Beth read of Ravellette's special car in a newspaper. She wote him and they began corresponding. He came here three weeks ago to visit the girl. They applied for a marriage license Monday. Kennedy after two year layoff hits 225 yd. drive HYANNIS PORT, Mass. (UPI) —President Kennedy, who had to give up golf for two years because of a back injury, was back at the game in good enough form today to win the applause of clubhouse professionals. The Chief Executive walloped a drive 225 yards and smiled at the accolade from a hastily assembled gallery after rushing to the Hyannis Port club to play several holes before nightfall Friday. Kennedy had just arrived at Cape Cod for a weekend with his family and was greeted by an official assemblage at Otis Air Force Base, Mass., which was overshadowed by a peppy two-year- old. The latter individual was Kennedy's son, John Jr., who scampered over to his father, indulged in a lot of chatter, and then walked past the President of the United States to try to board the huge jet transport plane the President had arrived in. He was led back to his father's helicopter for the 10-minute flight here. Mrs. Jacqueline Kennedy, who is expecting their third child late ne.vt montli, greeted the President at the landing area outside the horns of his convalescent 74-year- old father, Joseph P. Kennedy. After a round of family greetings, the President and First Lady motored to their home on Squaw Island, about a half-mile away. Then they drove to the country club, and Kennedy got through several holes while his wife watched from their golf cart. His best performance was at the second hole, where he whammed the ball—as one spectator put it— "right down the old alley"—and turned with a smile to wave at the 60 or so people who broke out in applause. Kew envoy To Kuwait WASHINGTON (UPI) - President Kennedy has named Howard R, Cottam as U.S. ambassador to Kuwait to replace Parker T. Hart, who would retain his other post as ambassador to Saudi Arabia. Cottam, 53, a career diplomat since 1947, is deputy assistant secretary of state for Near Eastern and South Asian affairs.

Some officials predicted that congressional action would be needed to avoid a crippling rail strike after July 29. President Kennedy's six-man fact-finding committee adjourned until Monday its investigation of the four-year-old battle over railroad demands for rule changes to abolish alleged "featherbedding," or unnecessary jobs. No negotiations were scheduled by rail union and management representatives, and Labor Secretary W. Willard Wirtz said he had no plans for a renewal of mediation at this time. The staff of the special committee was called in for work Saturday on preparation of facts for the report scheduled for submission to the President on July 19. That would give Kennedy three days to study the document before transmitting it to Congress along with his recommendations for disposing of the controversy. There was little hope in government circles that any agreement would be reached before the July 29 deadline when another strike could occur if railroads go ahead wth plans to place job- reducing rules into effect. Teamster union officer draws seven years NEWARK, N.J. (UPI) - Anthony (Tony Pro) Provenzano, a powerful Teamsters Union official faces a seven year prison term and $10,000 fme for extorting money from, an upstate New York trucking firm. Provenzano, was freed Friday under $15,000 bail pending an appeal after sentence was imposed in federal court here. 45 planes to take off in Powder Puff Derby BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (UPI) At 20 second intervals, some 45 planes began taking oft from Meadows Field here starting at 8 a.m. PDT today in the only race of its kind — the All Woman Transcontinental air race. Better known as the "Powder Puff Derby," the race is now m its 17th consecutive year and is the only transcontinental air race currently being run. Mrs. Judy Wagner, Palos Verdes, Calif, won the draw for the starting position and will take off first, followed by Mrs. Bertha Haycock of Bakersfield and then Mrs. Alice Hammond of Jleadow- brook. Pa. More than 80 women from 20 states are entered in this year's race with more than one third of theni competing for the first time. All of them arrived here last weekend and early this week to subject their au-craft to stringent inspection by Federal Aviation Agency (FAA) authorities who won't allow the derby planes off the ground unless they meet every specification in the book. Senators to probe Barnett Red charge WASHLVGTON (UPI»-The Sen ate Commerce Committee today promised to investigate a charge by Jlississippi Gov. Ross Barnett that Communists are behind the nation's racial strife. Several committee members, however, challenged the charge on the spot Friday after Barnett spoke. They said recent riots and demonstrations were the direct result of denial of equal rights to American citizens. Sen. Warren G. Magnuson, D-Wash., the committee chairman told Barnett the committee would ask the FBI to investigate his charge. But Magnuson said the committee would not be led off into "tangents" about who was behind the demonstrations. Barnett also accused President Kennedy and Atty. Gen. Robert F. Kennedy of encouraging dem onstrations that could result in bloodshed. In charging a Communist plot, Barnett showed the committee a photograph of Negro leader Dr. Martin Luther Kuig attending what the governor termed a "Com munist trainmg school." The picture, Barnett said, was taken at the Highlander Folk School, .Alonteagle, Tenn.—later closed by the state of Tennessee. The state of Georgia investigated the school and its attorney general called it subversive. King, in New York, was reported "not ready yet to comment" on Barnetfs statements. The men in the picture were identified by Barnett as Aubrey Williams, director of the Southern Conference Education Fund of New Orleans; Abner Berrj', a Negro; and Myles Horton, a former director of the Highlander School. Williams testified before the Senate Internal Security subcommittee in 1954. He denied ever being a member of the Communist party. Another witness, who identified himself as a former Communist, testified he had been introduced to Williams as a party member in 1942. Singapore prisoners burn warden alive Nixon in Geneva, says Goldwater far in lead GENEVA (UPI) - Former Vice President Richard M. Nbcon said Friday that Sen. Barry Gold water has displaced Gov. Nelson A. RockefeUer as the favorite for the 1964 Republican presidential nomination. But Nixon told a meeting of the American Club in Geneva that neither the Arizona senator nor the New York governor will have the nomination "locked up" before the Republican nominating convention. Ni.xon, on an extensive tour of Europe and the Mideast, named Goldwater, RockefeUer, Gov. William Scranton of Pennsylvania Pennsylvania and Gov. George Romney of Michigan as the "only possible candidates." But he declined to name his choice. "Goldwater has now just as commanding a lead as did Rockefeller three months ago," the former vice president said. Nixon said he e.vpects to have "somethmg to say" about the Republican candidate, the party's platform and the 1964 campaign but repeated he will not run for the presidency again himself. Russ, Chinese talks may end without formal split By HENRY SHAPIRO United Press International MOSCOW (UPI)—The Russian and Red Chinese negotiators discussed then- ideological differences again today, with fresh indications the showdown talks may end here without a formal split The two delegations met at the "House of Reception" in Lenm Hills overlooking Moscow this afternoon, after a brief recess this morning when they held separate delegation meetings. The Sino - Soviet talks shared the attention of Kremlin leaders with the nuclear test ban negotiations opening here Monday between Russia and the United States and Britam. Diplomatic observers pointed to a declaration issued in Peking today as evidence that the deep ideological and political differ­ ences of international communism may be resolved eventually without a formal split. The declaration said if the current differences cannot be resolved now, they can wait until tomorrow, or next year. It called the situation "very grave," however. The declaration, published in the official Conununist Chinese Pekmg Peoples Daily, maintained the Peking regime's militant posture but claimed China treasured Sino-Soviet unity. Western observers interpreted the declaration as a Chinese attempt to fend oft blame for any formal break in relations with Moscow. The observers said it appeared the Moscow talks may now seek to produce a neutral communique, with a call for another meeting—probably in Peking. Racial strife simmers under heavy guard By United Press International Cambridge, Md., and Savannah, Ga., where racial strife boiled into sudden violence this week, simmered under heavy guard today. The commander of National Guard troops, rushed back to Cambridge to halt new riots, turned back two Negro demon strations Friday night without incident. But Negro leaders m Cambridge said they would demonstrate "again and again" despite the limited martial law ban on such activities. Gov. Carl Sanders of Georgia placed a unit of the National Guard on standby alert and rushed 100 highway patrolmen into Savannah to stop the violence and vandalism that rocked the port city Wednesday and Thursday nights. More funds for fire prevention in forests WASHINGTON (UPI) - House and Senate conferees have agreed to add $575,000 to the forest service budget for fu-e prevention in Southern California. The bill, reported Friday, would add $300,000 to a special fund for fire control in the Cleveland, San Bernardino, Angeles and Los Padres National Forests. It also would provide $275,000 more than was budgeted for staffing and equipping a new fire research laboratory at Riverside, Calif. The increase was a compromise on a request by Sen. Thomas H. Kuchel, R-Calif.. that $1.2 million be added to the budget for the fire prevention work. Film pioneer dies WEST LOS ANGELES, Calif. (UPI) — James Francis Cardinal Mclntyre today celebrated a funeral Mass at St. Martin of Tours Roman Catholic Church for Dr. Herbert T. Kalmus, pioneer in the development of technicolor. Kalmus, president of Techm"col- or Motion Picture Corp. from 1915-62, died Thursday of a heart attack at the age of 81. Brown's education fund bill puts business on spot SACRAMEiVTO (UPI) - Gov. Edmund G. Brown has given a to his aid-to-education bill that presents California's corporations with a public relations problem. The bill calls for increasing state aid to the public schools by $100 million over the next two years. The schools would get $40 million this fiscal year, plus a repeat $40 million and another $20 million the year after. But the bill also says that if the governor's bank and corporation tax bill fails to pass the legislature the schools would get only the fu^t 40 million. Next year, they would return to the previous level: About $800 million annually. Thus, the corporations' fight fight against the governor's tax bill might cost the schools $60 million next year. And, as Brown no doubt asked, how would even the best public relations man e.xplain that kind of victory? Brown had sound reasons for putting the corporations on the spot. For if they were not on it, he might be. Because if the bill passed without the corporation rider, someone would still have to produce that extra $60 million for the schools next year. Brown, who hoped to raise nearly all the money from the second year provisions of the bank and corporation bill, would either have to ask for a major and immediate tax increase, or, as the spokesman said, "fire $60 milhon worth of state employes." Neither was a happy prospect for the governor. SINGAPORE (UPI) - "I know they can turn into a vicious mob if they choose to, but I feel it will never happen." These were the words of Daniel S. Dutton, the tall erect Englishman chosen three and one- half years ago to make the penal settlement on Senang Island into a model, modern rehabilitation colony. But Dutton was wrong. Today the island's barracks and storerooms are smouldering ruins, the walless prison settlement shut down—perhaps forever —and Dutton himself dead, the victim of one of the most brutal murders imaginable. Jlost of the island's 400 inmates, some of them convicted killers, rioted Friday and trapped Dutton and his deputy superintendent, Austrailian J.W. Tail- ford, in a radio room in the main administration building. While the two men desperately radioed for help from Singapore, 10 miles away, the prisoners, mainly Chinese, set the building on fire to drive them out. When Dutton emerged he was seized, his eyes gouged out and he was doused with kerosene and burned alive. T a i 1 f 0 r d was slashed with knives and burned, but he sur­ vived. His face was twisted with horror when the reinforcements from Singapore put him ashore an hour later. Nobody is sure why the riot occurred. Dutton ran the prison without walls and his 30-odd guards were unarmed. But two of the guards were killed and four others injured so seriously they were put on the critical list. Only one, who managed to hide in the bush, escaped any injury whatsoever. Thirty of the prisoners escaped from the 200-acre island during the half-hour of carnage. But a poh'ce boat recaptured eight of them a short time later. Tract builder agrees to sell house to Negro TORRANCE (UPI)-A year-long dispute over integration of a housing tract here appeared ended today with the builder agreeing to sell one home to a Negro, hire a Negro salesman and adopt a general "no discrimination" policy. The settlement was reached Friday night at the first face-to-face meeting between tract builder Don Wilson and leaders of the National Association of Advancement for Colored People and the United Civil Rights Committee. The NAACP and UCRC, through its local leader. Dr. Christopher Taylor, pledged no further demonstrations against Wilson's Southwood Riviera Royale tract and urged other organizations to follow suit. However, a spokesman for the Congress of Racial Equality said "token" picketing would be held today at the tract and another owned by Wilson in a nearby community. Spy's name published Labor to attack British disclosure of defector Last roundup in Kansas PITTSBURGH, Kan. (UPI) Paul McPherson, a policeman, pleaded with the city council Friday to have lariats made part of police equipment. He said they were needed to cope with a rash of stray horses which have been roaming on city streets. McPherson admitted that roping the animals would only half solve the problem. 'We also have trouble finding the owners," he said. "We may have to ask for a branding law so we can tell one horse from another." Kuchel asks end to water fight WASHINGTON (UPI) - Sen. Thomas H. Kuchel, R-Cali., told President Kennedy today that the government should accept a U.S. District Court decision on the use of water from the Santa Margarita River in Southern California. He said he had urged Atty. Gen. Robert F. Kennedy,not to appeal a decision by Federal Judge James M. Carter rejecting U.S. sovereignty" over the river waters. Carter held after more than 250 days of hearbgs that the federal government should seek water suppUes for the Camp Pendleton Marine Base under California state laws. Kuchel said in a letter to the president that the long litigation was estimated to have cost more Ihnn $5 million and had "not produced a drop of water." Demos term Goldwater talk 'inflammatory' WASHINGTON (UPI) - Democratic senators Friday called "inflammatory" and "irresponsible" a charge by Sen. Barry Goldwater, R-Ariz., that the Kennedy administration is ready to co-exist with mternational communism. (Soldwater, a 1964 GOP Residential possibility, said in a speech before the Human Events Conference that the nation's liberals suffer a "craven fear" of the future and have taken the country "too far to the left." Goldwater told the conservative organization that U.S. Communist party leader Gus Hall was uig- ing defeat of Republican candidates next year and support of "peopies's political movements." Goldwater said Hall had said that such movements operated within the Democratic party's orbit. The Arizona Republican said he was not suggesting that Democrats were Communists or that the Communists had captured control of the Democratic party. Douglas Answers Charges Asked for reaction to Goldwater's charges. Sen. Paul H. Douglas, D-IU., said "the record shows that liberals are just as much opposed to communism as is Sen. (Soldwater. "If necessary, we will use force to check Communist aggression," Douglas said. "We do not believe in rushing into nuclear war. And I do not believe that inflammatory speeches such as that of Sen. Goldwater help the national interest or the cause of a clean peace." Sen. Eugene J. McCarthy, D- Minn., called Goldwater's reference to communism an "irresponsible plot that comes up every campaign." Chairman J. William Fulbright, D-Ark., of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, called Goldwater's remarks "very irresponsible." He said Goldwater offered no alternative for anything he criticized. "If he wants to go to war." Fulbright said, "wliy doesn't he say so?" LONDON (UPI) - The Labor party opposition appeared today to be readying a sharp new attack on the British government for its handling of the "disclosure" of the defection to the West of a high ranking Soviet agent, identified by the British press as Anatoli Dolnytsin. All British morning newspapers today published the name of the master spy despite a British Defense Ministry "D" notice cu-cu- lated to the press Thursday urging agamst its publication. One afternoon newspaper published a photograph of a man with the face blanked out, identified as Dohiyt- sin. Thus far the Defense Ministry itseif has not publicly confirmed the identity of the Russian who, informed sources said, has given the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) in Washington the names of many — if not all — Russian secret agents working in the West. The sources said the defector, who went over to the West 18 months ago, also has tipped the CIA to methods employed by Communist agents. Many Soviet agents have been recalled behind the Iron Curtain ui recent months. In the light of London newspapers' action today. Labor members of Parliament were complain- uig that the use of the "D" notice technique was virtually tantamount to a "press notice" to boost a security success on the part of the government. Published reports from the United States that the CIA was angered by the British press iden­ tification of Dolnytsm were expected to encourage the opposition to question the government in Parliament on its handling of the case. The opposition attackers were taking the view that the government of Prime Minister Harold Macmillan sought maximum publicity for the defection to offset its series of security lapses in the eyes of public opinion. The security issues, of which the sensational Profumo case formed a part, has enabled the opposition to harass the Conservative government at a time parliamentary elections are in the offing. Reports said the defector will assume a new identity in Britain in an attempt to prevent Russian agents from murdering him to demonstrate the power of the Communist spy apparatus. It is too late to keep him from talking. The Guardian, quoting French sources, said the spy "will soon emerge with a new personality, name and background." The Daily Telegraph was the first to identify him as Anotoli Dol >Titsin, a middle-aged Communist career official who was believed to have been serving in an Eastern European embassy when he decided to defect. Dohiytsin defected early in 1962 and spent about six months in the United States. Following almost daily interrogation, he was permitted to come to Britain, where he said he wanted to settle down. Application for Krebiozen drug withdrawn CHICAGO (UPI) - The most bitterly fought medical battle of the decade took a dramatic turn Friday when the discoverer of krebiozen withdrew his application for contuiued experimental status of the drug. The move, in effect, meant at least a tempwary halt in efforts to win federal approval of the controversial cancer drug and put it on the market. Dr. Stevan Durovic, a refugee Yugoslav physician who first extracted the substance from the blood serum of horses 16 years ago, withdrew his application in a letter to Anthony J. C^lebreeze, secretary of the Department of Health, Education and Welfare (HEW). He said the government had waged a fight against "an unbiased clinical test" of the drug with "unheard-of pressure, the spreading of false statements to the press, an attempt to frame me and now an attempt to indict me." He told Celebreeze he had "lost hope that your department will ever solve this controversy in good faith." Krebiozen has long been opposed by the American Medical Association (AMA), which main- trains the drug is worthless in the treatment of cancer. Quote of Day NEWARK, N.J. -U.S. District Court Judge Robert Shaw, lecturing Teamster union official Anthony Provenzano shortly before sentencing him for e.^ctorting money from a trucking firm: "You have betrayed the interests of the working man. This kind of offense is a grave disservice to labor." U.S. protests to Viet Nam WASHINGTON (UPI) — The ^Vhite House has told American newsmen in Saigon that President Kennedy hopes there will be no recurrence of an incident in which South Viet Nam police manhandled them during a recent Buddhist religious service. The U.S. Embassy has expressed "the full measure of our concern" to the government of President Ngo Dinh Diem, White House Press Secretary Pierre Salinger said Friday. Juliana to visif Iran THE HAGUE (UPI) — Queen JuUana, Prince Bemhard and Crown Princess BeatrLx wil make a state visit to Iran Oct. 3-6, a palace spokesman said today. The visit is in return for the state visit made by Shah of Iran m 1959. Macmillan determined to hold on to his office LONDON (UPI) — Prime Minister Harold Macmillan appeared determined today to hold on to his office at least until some concrete progress is made on a nuclear test ban treaty with Russia. Political observers said the 69- year-old "imflappable Mac" intended to ride out the Profumo scandal and resist demands for his immediate retirement from the opposition Labor Party and from within his own Conservative Party. Macmillan does not want to go down in history as the leader of a Conservative government that was disgraced by one of his cabinet ministers, the observers said. He particularly does not want to retire at a time when he thinks the west may be on the threshold of a nuclear treaty of some sort with Moscow. Macmillan said in an exclusive interview in the Daily Express Friday that he has high hopes for the nuclear talks beginning in Moscow Monday. "I can't think of anything more important at this time," he said. "Either in itself or for East-West relations generally."
