Send A Dollar To Save Christmas Parade: Box 1018 11st Year Associated Press (AP) Unite'd Press International [(JP\J Greenville, Mississippi TKurs'day, July 21, I960 Price 5c : RED STREAK) FINAL ' No. 277 Gov. Hatfield Will Kominafe Nixon Next Week CHICAGO (AP) - Vice President Richard M. Nixon loday picked youthful Gov. Mark Hatfield of Oregon to place Nixon's name before next week's GOP convention as a presidential candidate. In announcing. this, Robert Finch, NIxon'j administrative assistant, told a new» conference the choice of a vice presidential running mate for Nixon Is "still a wide-open proposition." Previously GOP National Chairman Thniston B. Morton had said that if a platform is adopted that is mutually acceptable to Nixon and to Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller of New York it might possibly act as a catalytic agent to bring together a Nixon-Rockefeller ticket. They are taking Rockefeller's word that he would not accept a second-place nomination. Rockefeller has said he is available for top place on the ticket if a draft develops but doesn't expect it to. Not Closing Door Finch said, however, that Nixon is not closing the door (o Rockefeller as a possible running mate. Much the same word came from Herbert Klein, Nixon's press aide. Robert McManus, Rockefeller's press secretary, was asked about the renewed discussion of the governor as a vice-presidential possibility. He replied by reileratingj Rockefeller would not consid-l er the No. 2 spot. The choice of Hatfield to m a k e ; the Nixon nominating speech will put in the limelight a Republican governor who once suggested that Nixon be replaced on the 1956 ticket in favor of a vice presidential candidate more "liberal" in his views. Beatniks Name Cool Candidate NEW YORK (AP) - The I960 antipresidential candidate of the Beat Party is Dill Smith of Chicago. He is thoroughly bearded, truly beat, and the victor over such formiiiVlo opposition as "Big Brown" of Detroit and Sen. John F. Kennedy of Massachusetts. Smith won the nomination on the fifth ballot Wednesday night in a hotly-contested election-that closed the first great international assemblage of beats. They met in a smoke-filled second story room ': the College of Complexes, a coffee house. Until his band wagon got rolling, there was some doubt that Smith, the favorite son of three different states and n power in the cool wo'ld, could make it, man. Although Kennedy gave no sign that he ever knew about the convention, he polled three votes on the first ballot, matching another candidate called Jim the Greek, of Greenwich village.

AP) --Two Polaris missiles fired from a submerged nuclear -powered suSmarine streaked down the Atlantic firing range Wednesday for ,100 mites to hit squarely in the planned target area. Trie firings from the submarine George Washington were hailed as a big step toward operational use of a weapon that could be a giant deterrent to any enemy action. Gliding silently beneath the waves about 30 miles off Cape Canaveral, the George Washington made the historic first launchings from a suSmerged submarine while 50 feet below the surface. The stuhby H-fon missiles were popped to the surface with compressed air. Then their engines ignited and they streaked high into the air toward their pre- selected targets.

(AP) _ The United States said today it will do whatever it must to keep Soviet troops out of the Congo. U.S. Ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge gave the pledge to the U.N. Security Council after Soviet Deputy Foreign Minister Vasily V. Kuznelsov had said peace-loving states" would have to act if Belgian troops do not leave the chaotic New African republic immediately. At a council meeting lasting until 1 a.m. Kuznetsov introduced a resolution demanding the withdrawal of Belgian forces within three days. The Soviet resolution was not expeclel to win council approval. Instead the 11-natioti group probably will approve a milder resolution being drafted by Ceylon and Tunisia that will call on Belgium lions between the declarations and consin . chairman of a subcommit- It appeared that the convention to 'proceec as speedily as pos- will adopt a civil rights plank aslsible' with the withdrawal, strong as that adopted by t h e ] Democrat over strong objections of their Southern delegates. Certainly no opposition to such a stand has been expressed by any of the Republican delegates participating in the hearings. The farm problem stacks up as tha most difficult.

Lodge Welcomes Report Lodge welcomed a report frorr Secretnry General Dag Hammar- skjold that the new U.N. military force is moving into the Congo fast to restore order and protect the population. He expressed the hope that in a few days it will be close to 10,000 strong. The U.S. delegate noted "reports that the Soviet Union might intervene in the Congo directly with troops." "Witr other United Nations members, we will do whatever may be necessary to prevent ti intrusion of any military forces not requested by the United Nations," Lodge declared. Premier Patrice Lumumba of the Congo has been saying he wi ask for Soviet soldiers if the Belgian troops do not withdraw quickly. In a message to him Fri jay, Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev 'promised "the necessary help which may be required" to end what the Russians and Lumumba call Belgian aggression.

The United Slates has told Latin Americans that Cuba today under Prime Minister Fidel Castro is more of police state than it was under ousted President Fulgencio Batista. "One dictatorship has merely succeeded another in Cuba," Asst Secretary of State Roy R. Rubot torn Jr. said Wednesday night in a Voice of America radio broad cast beamed at Latin America. "The Castro regime has inereas ingly driven Cuba away from her natural attachments . . . with the West and toward an unnatural and abnormal--and indeed, in the ligh of the possible consequences 'for mankind, an amoral -- alignmen in the Soviet orb'-'," he added. The ideals of the Cuban revolu lion, he said, "have ben shat tered and discarded by the pres ent government of Cuba. "There is no election for gov ernmental office," he said, "no voting for officials, no fixed terms ro separation of powers, no legis lative assembly, no independen judiciary; and the system of land reform is a traesly on what was promised, a cniel blow to the hopes ot the underprivileged anc needy."

Belgian planes began airlifting Belgian paratroopers out of Leo-, poldville today in fulfillment of the United Nations plan to rnaka this a U. N.-controlIed city by Saturday. The soldiers are returning to .Be|gian treaty bases within the Congo. A contingent of Swedish soldiers for the U. N.
