Party workers watched from the windows as the students hurled rocks, sticks and bottles at police ringing the building and shouted "Gestapo!", "Democracy!" "Freedom!" and 'Constitution." Police finally drove the demonstrators away with tear gas, rubber truncheons and a water Copper Settlement Fades By NEIL GILBRIDE WASHINGTON (AP) Chances of a breakthrough soon in the 8-month-old copper strike have faded after union negotiators delayed action on a $1.07 per hour contract offer and renewed demands for company- wide bargaining.

The other two firms, Anaconda Co. and American Smeltini & Refining Co., were reported still far from settlement.

Stefan Cardinal Wyszynsky, Poland's Roman Catholic primate and long an opponent of the Communist regime, canceled a sermon at St. Ann's Church near the university to "avoid worsening the situ* tion," a 1 spokesman said. By nightfall, a nervous calm prevailed. Police cars cruised downtown streets littered with bricks, glass and spent tear gas canisters, and guarded against looters at stores with smashed windows. Censorship also touched off three days of rioting in 1957 as young people demonstrated against the closing of a student magazine. The current unrest began with the government's closing in January of a 19th century classic Polish play about the czarist oppression of Poland. About 200 students demonstrated then and ;wo later were expelled from Warsaw University. In protest against the expulsions, and then against police actions, students staged violent demonstrations Friday and Saturday and continued their cam- laign Monday. They have demanded reinstatement of the expelled students, release of arrested demonstrators and an end to "false information" about them in government-con- Malik Returns to UN UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (AP) — Jacob Malik, one of Joseph Stalin's ace diplomats, re,urns to the United Nations today as the Kremlin's chief spokesman. Since the announcement almost two months ago that he Would succeed Nikolai T. Fedorenko, U.N. diplomats have been lying to assess the significance of Malik's return. Some have asked whether it means a re- urn to the cold war in which Malik played a key role. Malik was the chief Soviet delegate from 1948 to 1953. During the first summer of the Korean war he became known in the press as "The Great Stone Face" because of his grim, unsmiling appearances • in televised meetings of the U.N. Security Council. Other diplomats think of Malik differently. He was the man who negotiate^ the lifting of Berlin blockade and who dropped the first hint in a speech in 1951 that the Communists were ready to begin negotiations to end the Korean war. Since he left New York 15 years ago, he has been a deputy foreign minister and Soviet ambassador to London. trolled news media.
