Briton Tells i Of Sub Offer ,' MOSCOW (AP)—A British bus! , nessman on trial as a spy testified yesterday he listened in a hotel bathroom to an offer by the British Intelligence service to sneak a ; Russian spy to safety in a submarine. The confessed Russian spy, Oleg Penkovsky, and the British businessman, 42-year-old Greville Wynne, stood side by side In the prisoner dock, each trying to •blame the other for a large part In their operations. Both have pleaded guilty to the charges, Wynne for espionage and Penkovsky to high treason. Ik, The battle was played out In a tiny courtroom where sat the blue-eyed wife of Wynne. Her face showed the strain as she , watched her husband battered by ., masses of data extracted from '• y him and Penkovsky while both ^ were held for months in a Soviet prison. Wynne accused the British In , telligence service of tricking * him into the deal that led to his arrest as a spy for Britain and - the United States. Wynne testified he was unaware, while ferrying packages of film and other matter between Moscow and London, that he was In espionage work as an assistant to Penkovsky, a Russian scientific official. He insisted that he didn't know the truth until too late and that a high agent of the British intelligence service "grew very angry" when he asked what was going on. Court members smiled. SOVIET FARM VISITOR NEW YORK (AP) - Roswell Garst, 64-yearold Iowa farmer, has left New York by plane to visit farmlands hi the Soviet Union. World Roundup Russ Good Missile-Hiders: U*S. GENEVA (AP)—In the Cuban crisis, the Russians proved it te possible to hide missiles as tall as a 10-story building, U.S. Ambassador Charles C. Steele told the 17-nation disarmament conference in Geneva. He made the statement yesterday in answer to a claim by Soviet delegate Semyon K. Tsarapkln mat it was "sheer nonsense" for the West to fear that the Russians could conceal missiles. Opium Elimination Claimed in Red China GENEVA (AP) - One of China's ancient vices, opium smoking, has been completely eliminated by the Red Chinese government, the Soviet Union says. The claim was. made hi Geneva yesterday by Mrs. V. V. Vasilleva, Soviet delegate to a U.N. conference on drug traffic hi answer to U.S. and South Korean charges that the Red Chinese were shipping raw opium into neighboring countries for sale In the United States. The charges, said Mrs. Vasl- lieva, are "false and unjustified accusations made for purely political reasons." She said Red China but year decreed a total prohibition of smoking, growing, processing or transporting opium. She claimed the decree has been completely effective. Laotian Civil War Bows to Fertility VIETIANE, Laos (AP)-Laotians forgot about a threatened civil war and set their minds yesterday to fertility. Shooting off rockets, dancing and parading, they prayed to the gods of fertility to be good to them. In Vientiane, the ancient fer- tility rites were toned down so as not 1 to offend the sensibilities of the Western diplomat corps. But ceremonies hi the outlying areas were as earthy as usual. The rites Included parades, dances and puppet shows that graphically demonstrated everything connected with fertility. Brazil Army Moves To Forceful Position RIO DE JANEIRO - The Brazilian army, which has played a smaller political role than most military forces In Latin America, moved toward a more forceful position yesterday. Behind the shift, which could bear heavily on Brazil's future, was a series of Inflammatory speeches by President Joao Goulart's brother in law, Leonel Brizola, who Is a federal deputy and former governor of Rio Grande do Sul state. Tuesday at Recife, In Brazil's teeming, underdeveloped northeast, Brizola denounced the army garrison commander, Gen. Antonio Murlcy, as an advocate of a rightist coup and dictatorship. Yesterday the military expressed almost unanimous revulsion at Brizola. A manifesto was signed by scores of officers hi Rio protesting Brizola's remarks and charging they tended to incite insubordination. — (Los Angeles Times Service) Syria Quells Nasser Riots DAMASCUS, Syria (AP)— The week-old political crisis boiled up with pro-Nasser demonstrations in Damascus and northern Syria yesterday but police quickly clamped a lid on them. Shooting broke out for an hour and a half in the northern city of Aleppo and usually reliable sources said several persons were killed. Police imposed a curfew. DEMONSTRATORS gathered In Port Said Square in Damascus but riot police scattered them without firing a shot. Witnesses said many of the demonstrators were refugees from Palestine, rabid supporters of President Gamal Abdel Nasser of the United Arab Republic. Apparently because of the polltl cal crisis in Syria, Nasser cut short his official visit to Algeria by a day and altered his plans for a trip to Yugoslavia and talks with President Tito. He sailed directly for home instead of going to Yugoslavia. PRESUMABLY Nasser plans to meet In Cairo with members of the Syrian National Revolutionary Council, who flew there for consultations. The crisis, erupting six days ago, threatened to torpedo plans for a union under Nasser of Syria, Egypt and Iraq in an Arab federation. Plans were made for the federation last month In Cairo. But Syrian Ba'ath Socialists, who have been cautious about union with Nasser, have squeezed followers of Nasser out of the revolutionary government. The Ba'athists had a leading role In taking Syria out of the old U.A.R, In 1961 because Nasser suppressed their activities. Red Raises Specter of Radiation By ROBERT T. HARTMANN Los Angeles times Service ROME-^dffifflUflrSta oi the Mediterranean NATO nations yesterday renewed their attack on Polaris sub* marines. The secretary of the Greek Communist Party charged that radioactive contamination from an ac* cidervt like that of the submarine Thresher could poison their strategic sea. Kostas Koliyannis, head of the outlawed Communist Party in Greece, was interviewed by the Prague correspondent of the of* flcial organ of the Italian Communists, L'Unita. Koliyannls stressed the Thresher disaster as an additional peril brought Into the Mediterranean by the American submarines, which began re* placing Jupiter Intermediate' range NATO missiles based la Italy and Turkey March id. The Thresher was a nuclear- powered but not a Polaris firing sub, and no radioactive hazard has been detected since her loss In the North Atlantic a month ago. "Interviews" in Com munlst papers often signal the launching of a new propaganda line. In this one the Greek Red chief declared: "NEW DANGER is created In the Mediterranean and Balkan seas because in case of war thermonuclear retaliation would immediately take place, and secondly because an accident can happen at any time. "If American public opinion Is worried about contamination in the Atlantic caused by the rink- Ing of the Thresher .... It Is easy to appreciate the feelings of countries like Greece, which lie In the Mediterranean basin when they are told American- armed atomic missiles are under their sea." Thei Greek red asserted Washington did not "even take the trouble to inform the Greek gov> ernment" of the plan to send three Polaris submarines into the Modi' terranean under NATO control. Two such subs have been officially reported on station and the USS Sam Houston surfaced April 14 to pay « courtesy call at Izmir, Turkey, where the staunchly anti- Communist Turks warmly welcomed it. Koliyannls said Greek cooperation with the United States In NATO, which he alleged Includes atomic stockpiles in Greece, is "an act of degrading servility which Is turning our country Into an American nuclear base and en dangering our existence and our cultural treasures." (Violent anti-Communist reaction rocked Greece when Soviet Premier Nlkita S. Khrushchev boasted in 1957 that his ballistic missiles could pinpoint the Parthenon in Athens). AP Wlrepheto BORDER HANDSHAKE-Haitian and helmeted Dominican soldiers shook hands yesterday in the No Man's Land that separates their feuding countries.

More About Airlift From Haiti (Continued from Page 1) months that it disapproved of Duvalier's Increasingly dictatorial regime. Duvalier's six-year term of office was due to expire May IS, but he rigged himself into a new term with an electoral gimmick two years ago. The converted aircraft carrier Boxer led a squadron of Navy ships and the Marines Into Gonave Bay, off the Haitian capital. Two Pan American planes airlifted 178 American wives and children of U.S. servicemen and diplomats to Miami. Armed Haitian police and soldiers held the airport under tight security during the evacuation. The OAS council hi Washington decided, 184, to send Its special committee back to Haiti and the Dominican Republic to work for a settlement. The Council delegated new power* to the committee to perform- whatever service Is necessary to find a quick solution to the Haiti-Dominican dispute. In the U.N. Security Council British Say Seducer Law Out of Date LONDON (AP) — Britain's law reform committee said yesterday the law allowing a father to sue the seducer of his daughter for damages is out of date. Under the law an unmarried daughter under 21 who lives at her father's home is technically her father's female servant. The law authorizes damages to a man "for the loss of services of any female servant of his who Is seduced by a third person." meeting, Dominican delegate Guaroa Velazquez said his country's troops remained poised on the Haitian border but were not there for aggressive purposes, He suggested that the Security Council drop the matter and leave it to the OAS for a solution. In Port-au-Prince, Duvalier's militia was reported battling nightly hit-and-run attacks by opposition forces led by a former Duvalier security chief. Haitians wondered whether Duvalier could safely leave the country even If he wanted to. He has limited escape facilities on Haitian military aircraft, but getting out of the palace with his family and a favored few and leaving the fight to others might not be easy. Phone Puzzles Prime Minister OTTAWA (AP)-Prime Minister Lester B. Pearson's defense advisers are not exactly expecting war to break out any minute. Pearson said yesterday he has a mysterious extra telephone in his office, where he took over two weeks ago. "I'm not sure what it Is," he confided to reporters. "I was told not to use it until I am told about it." It was learned elsewhere that the phone connects the prime minister with North American Air Defense headquarters in Colorado. It Is similar to one President Kennedy has. British Set For Move To Guiana By FLORA LEWS Washington Post LONDON-fhe British war office pf epared tfesttf « day to send troops to British Guiana if an appeal for help Is made formally fii Is now expected. Elements of one battalion have been put on 12 hours notice for departure. Reliable sources said some 150 men were feady to go off immediately, the remaftdef of the battalion, about 350 men, lave been put on 72 hours departure notice. A near general strike has been going on in British Guiana for two weeks. Six hundred fflefi of the Cold-stream Guards, who were «ent out fa February Ifttt are still la the •elf-governing British Caribbean colony. The appeal for help is expected from Premier Cheddl Jagan. the pro-Marxist leader who has met embattled opposition from the labor unions in his effort to force through a law controlling labor. Jagan has shown some sympa- hies for Castro Cuba, and the rony of the situation is not lost here. The British troops sent to calm the seething colony last year were sent at his request. ALTHOUGH the main opposi? ion to Jagan is led by Forbes Jurnham, an anti-Communist, the British government feels that it must respond to any request for lelp from Jagan to prevent another wildly destructive outburst that could leave the nearly bankrupt colony in ruins. American sources said that at this point, the problems In British Guiana were still considered a matter of Internal security, although there is general jumpiness at the eruption of another trouble spot on the shores of the Caribbean. Since the British government controls visas for the colony, It is felt here that there are reasonably good safeguards against the penetration of British Guiana by outside Communists. Therefore the mate object is to keep order. British Guiana was slated for ndependence but that is now indefinitely postponed because of the fierce quarrel betweeri the" lovernment and opposition mere on preparatory constitutional changes. Jagan has a slim major- ty, and the opposition has Insisted that independence should not be granted in a way. that, would enable him to perpetuate his control of the government.
