70,000 Tractors-for-Freedom Letters to Be Returned Unopened DETROIT Wl--Nearly 70,-| 000 letters--most of them believed to contain contributions to tbe ill-fated tractors- for-Cuban invasion prisoners swap -- will be returned unopened. This decision was announced Saturday by the tractors for freedom committee It said Cuban Premier Fide! C a s t r o ' s unreasonable demands made the deal impos sible. The committee, which has jisbandcd, is headed by Mrs, Eleanor Roosevelt, honorary chairman; Walter P. Reuther, United Auto Workers president, and Dr. Millon S. Eisenhower, president of Johns Hopkins University, co-chairmen, and Joseph M. Dodge, Detroit banker, treasurer. The committee had proposed to exchange 500 farm tractors for Cuban freedom fiyhters held prisoner by Castro. The committee put the number of prisoners at 1,214. John Hooker Jr., executive secretary of the disbanded committee, earlier this month told 10 members of a prisoners' delegation sent from Cuba to Key West, Fla., that "in the name of honor the committee feels it cannot send Dr. Castro tractors, money or credits for indemnity. Not S28 million or $28." The citizens' group Thursday rejected a request by a committee that contributions be turned over to them in an effort to revive the project. The committee said it had set out in "all good faith and with the approval of President Kennedy" to provide the Cuban people with agricul- tural tractors in exchange for] the prisoners. Mrs. Roosevelt, widow of the late President Franklin D. Roosevelt, had suggested that each contribution be returned with a note" of thanks and an explanation of why the prisoners' swap failed. However, each returned envelope will have imprinted on it: '"At the request of the INDEPENDENT-PRESS-TELEGRAM-A-S Long Deach, Calif., Stind.y. July J, 1/61 Tractors for Freedom Committee this mail is being re-, turned with sincere apprecia-j tion for your interest and with regret its purpose could not be consummalcd." · The committee said letters without return addresses will go to the post office's dead letter office, where they will be opened for possible identification of the sender. 9x12 Axminster Rug Cleaned, Sized l" COLOR BRIGHTENING · METHODS USKD V W A L1.-TO-WA LL- CA K PET CLEANKD IN 'HIE HOME V NO SHRINKAGE V UPHOLSTERY CLKA.NMD V HOOKKD AND BRAIDKD HU(;S OUR SPECIALTY ^ KRI;K PICK-UP AND DELIVERY Save 23;fc Cnsh and Carry.
