Richard Burton Leaves Liz For Reunion With Wife * * * * * * * * * * if * * * * * * * ill III A ftl"! ·· A AP'A ^ CUBA RELEASES 7 Tells News Men I'm Married' PARIS (UPD-- British aclo Richard Burton flew into Par for-a reunion with his wife toda; and shrugged off the . qucstio when asked if he would marrj actress Elizabeth Taylor. "I'm already married," the bus ky Briton said. Burton's wife, former actres Sybil Williams, flew into Paris Le Bourget Airport from Londo a half hour before Burton's plan arrived at Orly Airport from Rome, where earlier today h had gone night clubbing into th wee hours with "Miss Taylor. "Sounds like a summit meet ing," muttered a British newsma who was part of the small arm of "reporters and photographer who greeted Burton at Orly. "Why not?" Burton shot bac when a newsman asked him i .he planned to see his wife. "After all, she's my wife. And in fact, she's waiting for me no\ at the hotel." Burton, who plays Marc Antonj to Miss. Taylor's Cleopatra in the movie of Uie same name bein; made in .Rome, .appeared almos casual amid the chaos of his air port welcome. . He wore a blue shirt withou necktie. He ga«c the impression of being yery amused by the head lines following his friendship with Miss Taylor following her break with her husband, Eddie Fisher. When the headlines first started appearing on the reports of a romance between him and Miss Taylor he called it all a lot ol "bloody nonsense" and added he still Joved his wife. ; . ; Yet, before he left Rome this afternoon, he ' and the beautiful Miss Tayloi made another spirited jaunt through the night clubs of Rome that lasted until almosl dawn. Then he flew off to Paris alone. There was no sign of the raven- haired Miss Taylor at the airport when Burton's plane took off at 2:15 p.m. (8:15 a.m. EST). But studio sources said she planned to join him for a Paris weekend. The airliner was delayed a short time by, mechanical trouble before it took off. .Airline sources said then that "A Taylor" was booked aboard the plane "but it is not Miss Taylor." Burton and Miss Taylor, who has split with her singer-husband Eddie Fisher, hit the night club trail together shortly after midnight. They made the rounds until they returned to their neighboring villas off the old Appian Way nearly four hours later. Burton is scheduled to film a small role in the m o v i e "The Longest Day" in Paris this weekend. He also possibly will have i showdown with his wife, Sybil, over his- well-publicized romance with Miss Taylor. Police Guard Backs School NEW ORLEANS (UPI)-A Homan Catholic lay leader who backed desegregation of parochial schools here received police protection today because of threatening telephone calls. .

Rummel's order, issued last veek, called for desegregation of ill grades in Catholic primary md secondary schools in the 10- arish (county) archdiocese of \ r ew Orleans. Mayor Victor H. Schiro called i meeting for noon Monday to liscuss the city's public school ituation, brought to a boil by a ederal judge's order to desegre- ate all elementary schools in September. Schiro invited the city's legisla- ive delegation to the meeting .to nake recommendations "and-or ntroducc legislation" to offset the ffects of the order issued Tnes- ay by U.S. Dist. Judge J. Skelly Vright. CLASSI's statement said Ilum- nel had received the barest sup- wrt from Catholic laymen in his cscgregation sland. which dates ack several years, compared vith defiance from several lay ,1'oups. "Not one Catholic lay group-- uch as Knights of Columbus, loly Name Society, Catholic Daughters, clc. -- had the cour- ge to step forward to denounce lie erroneous opinions of said Catholics." sf Due School T Plan part of which will be paid by th school district. "Costs and sources of financin will be indicated. Annually th current year's program should b included in the city's budget am the school district's budget. Th City Planning Commission shoult review all projects to determin whether they conform with th adopled plans. Order of Urgency "The Capital Improvement Pro gram wjll be designed to inform public officials and citizens of th city's and the school district' physical facilities' needs over, a reasonable time' in the future; to develop a well-rounded program of public investment and a de jendable order of urgency fo each project in relation to othe projects; to help stabilize the tax rate over a period of years b; making possible a sound invest ment program; and to ensure tha maximum benefits will be; re ceived for every public dolla spent. "The Capital Improvement: Pro jram procedure makes it certain that periodically public officials will r e v i e w the community's needs and examine its ability to pay. Unnecessary overlapping and duplication can be avoided by carefully cataloging projects. Pro- jramming provides greater assurance that they will be undcr- aken in order of need. It protects he community against the undue nfluence of s p e c i a l interest ;roups that may attempt to force hrough pet projects at the ex- ense of the entire community. Scheduling improvements makes t possible to allow adequate time or engineering and architectural lesign, and thus costly mistakes an be avoided. "In addilion, an improvemenl rogram enables the city to coop- rate with the federal government, the slate, the county, school istricts and other special dis- ricts in coordinating capital proj- cts. Most important, it alerts niblic officials and the communi- y to future demands on revenues nd borrowing power. Frequently ie program makes it possible to cquire land in advance of need t more favorable prices. "During the preparation of - the jrogram, a committee of, city and chool district officials will be rganized to screen projects and uggest priorities and methods of nancing. "The contractor will be 75 per ent responsible and the city 25 icr cent for an inventory of city, ounty and school district land cquisition a n d improvements rejects, shown on the General Ian, the Central District Devel- ament Plan, Eureka-Humboldt ay Harbor and Shoreline De- elopment Plan, and the Eureka ommunity Renewal Program." Yank War Games Slated For Berlin oday scheduled a three-day ma- cuver which it said was designed o increase the Berlin garrison's ombat capability. The Army said about 3,200 sol- iers of the fi,500-man U.S. gam- on supported by. tanks and heli- opters, would take part in a war ainc April 11-13 in West Berlin's Grunewald woods. The soldiers, divided inlo ag- ressor and defender forces, will iracticc tactics that could be used o defend the city. Such exercises have been held icre ever since World War 11, but leir frequency and scope have icon increased since the Coinrnu- ists put up their anti-refugee ·nil last Aug. 13. Nixon Meets Kennedy ---At The Standard Richard Nixon met Kennedy this that name before." The Republican gu- morning. But it wasn't the John F. vari- ' bernatorial candidate talked with em-, ety. It was Warren Kennedy, printer ployes.of the newspaper following an in the composingToom of the Humboldt -appearance at the Republican school of Standard. Dick said: "I think I've heard politics at Eureka Inn. GOP Victc If People "If we can convince the voters f this State to vote for the man, ot the party, we can win a sub- tantial victory in this year's elec- ion," Richard M. Nixon this morning told Republicans attend- ng a school of politics at Eureka nn. The candidate for the Republi- an gubernatorial nomination had everal bits of advice for the par- y workers prior to leaving the Inn or a hand-shaking lour at Eureka Newspapers Inc., and then flying o Crescent City. Concerning the need to convince oters to cast their ballots for ie man, not the party, Nixon bserved the Democratic party lolds a wide lead over Republi- ans in California. "All they think they need do is ct all the Democrats to vote a larty ticket. So we must convince ie voters to be independent and udge the men seeking election." Win Demos Over This is especially important af- er the Primary election and be- ore the November General vote, e said. He added it also is important or Republicans to swing the loy- ties of as many Democrats as lossible to the Republican view, iut at the same time noted it difficult to get Democrats to omc to a meeting which is billed s a Republican gathering. In an aside, Nixon remarked many Democrats attended last ight's GOP banquet at the Inn, bnt they were mostly Democrats ho've been voting Republican for cars anyway." Another point made by the former vice president was that the arty "must welcome new blood." He described this as the "great- st need of the Republican party oday in the State and the Naon." Too often, Nixon noted, persons n control of the formal party rganization tend to ' (ear new ilood will lake over. "It is obvi- iry Seen B 'Vole For ous you don't have that kind o; organization here," he stated. Keep Them Busy Another admonition by Nixon was, "The worst thing that can happen is to get everyone all charged up and then find they have no place to icarry'on." There must be work providec for all who are interested in working on elections, including both those in the formal organization and volunteers. Besides the regular party chan- Dick Nixon Crescent (fr Republican gubernatorial candidate Richard M. Nixon headed 'or Crescent City today after appearing b e f o r e enthusiastic crowds here last evening during which he shook the hands of an estimated 1200 persons. From the moment he debarked "rom his plane at Arcata Airport, the former vice president carried on a vigorous campaign of rap- ling the present state administra- ,ion and calling for a return to responsible leadership. Although appearing in need of sleep, the energetic campaigner flashed his famous smile as he was greeted by a small, but en- husiastic, crowd of about 50 at he airport. He later addressed over 400 persons at a Republican Central Committee fund-raising banquet it Eureka Inn, and then sped to tiie State Theater, where another 600 heard him echo the same platform, although more briefly. Before and after his appearances, he sandwiched in television appearances on both loca! chan- iels in addition to conferring with aides on the rest of his whirlwind our through the North Coast region. During his address at the Eu- ·ekn Inn, Nixon declared: "As the whole United Stales y Nixon The Man' nels, he reminded the group, al of the party's candidates can use help in their campaigns. During his tour of the newspaper plant, Nixon met and chatted with employes from the business office, editorial room, advertising, circulation, and composing room. Following the brief stop, the candidate and his party left for Rohnerville Airport to emplane for Crescent City, where an appearance was scheduled at noon. Speaks In 1 Tonight will be looking to California, the challenge to the people of this state is to see that we are first in the quality of our state government. "I don't think we have that government in Sacramento in the Governor's office." His speech was interrupted frequently by heavy applause as the candidate touched on local as well as state problems, relating the issues to each other. Although not mentioning Brown by name, there was no doubt who the former Vice President had in mind in his critique of present-day government in California. Nixon stated that the role of government was not in providing "handouts but in opportunities to the people." "Let us not hi the West hang out our hands to Washington," lie sold. Nixon looked fit and trim. Dressed in a dark blue suit, he spoke delilwrately and evenly. Nixon lambasted (he mtminls- trillion of Gov. Ednmmt 0.

(U seven American treasure hunters telephoned his wife from Cuba been released after "receiving th Mrs. Patton said her hushant were safe and would fly home fr dny just as soon as flight clca arranged by the Swiss Embassy. "He said (heir boat hail sun* in 52 feet of water and that the; swam ashore in Cuba with noth ing but the clothes on thci jacks," Mrs. Patton reported. " wouldn't let him teli me a n more about what happened.. :old him it had become an inter national incident and he socmcc surprised." Patton told his wife that th skindivers, who had embarkcc last Saturday on a search fo sunken treasure in the Caribbean lad been "receiving the red car pet treatment" in Cuba. Patton reported he and his com panions all were in good healt and spirits. He told his wife lha ie suffered a few scratches from coral rock while scramblin ashore, but that was all. Patlon asked his wife to notify the insurance company that hi ioat had sunk and said he would telephone her again to let he mow when he will arrive bad in the United States. Mrs. Patlon said the call came about G a.m. PST and she did no understand from what city in Cuba it originated. Late this morning, there stil Red Sputnik Sends Back Data On Rays MOSCOW (UPD - The Sovie Union's second Sputnik launchcc n three weeks rode an elliptica rbit through space today, scnd- ng back data that could be help- ul for a . manned flight to the moon. The new satellite-- named Cosmos 11 -- was launched Friday night. Its weight was not announced, 1ut the Soviet news gency Tass said its purpose- ike that of Cosmos I, launched torch 1G-- was to gather data on osmic ray radiation and other angers man might encounter in pace. Moscow Radio said the satellite s functioning normally. Friday night's announcement aid the Sputnik also was part of program to study the construe- on of space vehicles. This led Vestern observers here to specu- ate that the satllite was launchec s part of the research necessary icfore a manned flight to the moon or the planets can be at- empted. (This theory was supported by Heinz Kaminski, director of West Germany's Dochum Observatory, taminski, who said he heard the atellite's signals "loud and clear" aid the Sputnik was prelude to ie launching of a manned space- lip that could circle the earth or days.) The Sputnik's wide-swinging val orbit took it 369 miles out rom earth at its farthest point nd brought it to within 132 miles ' the earth at its nearest point. During its 102.5-minute orbits, it as passing over New York, Los ngclcs and Ottawa, along with ther North American cities. San Franciscans Suffer From Smog SAN FRANCISCO (UPD - A car-record smog assaulted the yes of San Franciscans Friday. U.S. Public Health Service in- rumciUs recorded a reading of 8 pans of oxidanls per million arts of air, only .07 less than he all-lime high in the city, cs- ablishcd last June.

Kan Rafael had 2, Oakland .2:1, San Jose .22, id San Matco .24. Hunters lones Wife )up Okay PD-- Gordon S. Patton, leader "of arrested by the Cuban government, oday and reported the group had t! red carpet treatment," reported he and his companions om Cuba cither late today or Moh- ance and transportation could be was no official announcement from the Cuban government about the case. First word that the Americans had landed in Cuba came early Friday when the Cuban radio broadcast that seven Americans, "apparently frogmen," had been picked up for investigation. No Cuban official reference to die Americans as possible "frogmen" appeared to be potentially ominous. Premier Fidel Castro's government charged at the time of the abortive invasion of Cuba a year ago that U.S. "frogmen" cleared the invasion approaches for the attack. Calls Presence "Innocent" , Secretary of Stale Dean Rusk told, a news conference Friday night in Baton Rouge, La., that the Americans' "presence in Cuba was innocent . . . we are moving jromptly to obtain their release. We don't believe there will be any difficulty." The Stale Department said in Washington Friday that the Pomano Beach expedition was on the way to Kingston, Jamaica, to examine sunken wrecks dating back to tlie days of the Spanish Main. The converted shrimp boat Pisces, in which the party was traveling, had been unreported since Tuesday, and the U.S. Coast Guard .had been searching for races of the vessel. In Pompano Beach, Mrs. Gordon S. Patlon of Jackson, Miss., and Ocean Cily. Md,, said her lusband, a 62-year-old retired charlcr-boal captain, was the leader of Ihe ex-pedilion. Identifies Companions She identified his companions as Fred Dickson Jr., of Ocean Cily, N.J.; John Sterry of Brewtser, J.Y.; underwater photographer Frank W. (Mike) Freeman of (erby Hills, Md.; Johnny Johnson f Washington; Bernie Mislead of Brooklyn and Joe Campbell- of Alexandria, Va. Mrs. Patton said the course her lusband had charted for the trip o Kingston would have taken the 'isces within 75 miles of eastern Cuba-- a "calculated risk" which ie said he was prepared to take. U.S. observers speculated that ie boal, perhaps disabled in Ihe Vindward Passage between Cuba nd Haiti, many have fallen prey o one of the Castro regime's ast, Soviet-buill patrol boats.
