-hi Heard Missiles Fired, Freed Prisoners Say MIAMI, Fla. (AP)—Two American women, the first of more than 20 American prisoners expected to be freed from Cuban jails within six weeks, claim that while in prison they heard Russians test-firing missiles. "I don't thin k they could be small ones," one woman said. "They shook the prison bars in our hands." The women were released unexpectedly Sunday, "with no strings attached," according to James Donovan, the New York lawyer who negotiated their freedom. Donovan said the other native- born Americans will be released when delivery of the $53-million Bay of Pigs prisoner ransom was completed. That should take about six weeks, he said. Donovan also said Cuban Prime Minister Fidel Castro had agreed to free nine skin divers arrested six weeks ago if the New York attorney could prove them innocent of counterrevolutionary activity. One of the women, who spent more than two years in Cuban jails, said the Soviets are testing missiles at an underground rock THtiY WENT THATAWAY.

Brisk Trade On Sunday In Missouri KANSAS CITY (AP)-Brisk to moderate trade greeted merchants who opened their stores for unlimited sales on the first Sunday since the Missouri Supreme Court knocked out the state's 138-year- old blue laws. Discount houses, some drug store chains, appliance firms and suburban markets in the metropolitan areas of St. Louis, Kansas City, Springfield and St. Joseph had their cash registers jangling. Their parking lots were filled with cars. Major department stores and most other downtown businesses were closed. Jack Boring Jr., head of a Kansas City appliance company, said about 4,000 customers visited his store. "People in our business simply will not buy in six days what they will buy in seven," Boring said. "Our sales are very good." A conflicting view was given by Lee Link, manager of another appliance away. "There's firm about 10 blocks the same amount of business whether five days of the you re week, one closet or non," Link said. "We're against Sunday sales. I hope nobody does any business."

Publishers' representatives expressed regret at the printers' rejection of the proposed settlement. The vote raised the possibility that the ITU Executive Council might submit the proposed settlement to a referendum of the entire membership of Local 6, including some 6,000 commerical printers and the 3,000-odd newspaper printers. Two large units of the New York Newspaper Guild voted Sunday to extend their current contracts, as the printers had demanded, so that the pacts would expire simultaneously with those of nine newspaper craft unions.

That is one of the sites where the Soviets installed intermediate range missiles before last October's Cuban crisis. Geraldino Shanuna, a native of Boston, said the tests were con ducted every three or four days and were powerful enough to shake the bars of the prison. Mrs. Shanuna said prison guards, who became her friends during 29 months confinement, told her the missiles are being test-fired in a horizontal shaft leading from the quarry. The stocky, gray-haired Mrs. Shamma said she was instructed not to divulge any inforation because it might prejudice the Cuban regime against the remaining Cuban prisoners. But she said: "I hope they don't think I'm going to sugar coat all this treatment we've had It was awful. We were freed for nothing. If I thought they had paid any ransom for me, I wouldn' have come back." The other woman, Martha O'Neal, whose parents live in Orlando, Fla., wouldn't talk about the missiles. However, at one point she said, "I heard them so often that I became used to them and didn't even notice the noise." They said they had been charged with counterrevolutionary activity and sentenced to 10 years. Neither would be specific about the charges. Mrs. O'Neal said she was arrested Dec. 15, 1960 at a friend's house.

Co. Study Excise Tax Trim WASHINGTON (AP) — Congressional consideration of income tax cuts may be broadened to include the possibility of trimming or eliminating some federal ex* cise taxes, it was learned today. The House Ways and Means Committee may hear some witnesses on this phase of taxation at the end of its tax hearings in about two weeks. One important group of excise taxes requires congressional action by June 30 unless revenues are to drop by some $1.5 billion a year. These are known as Korean taxes because most were imposed or increased at the tune of the Korean conflict. The rates set then have for the most part been continued from year to year ever since. Transportation taxes were cut last year. The other "Korean" excises ar» on alcoholic beverages, tobacco, automobiles and parts and general telephone service.
