Vatican Council Absolves Jews Of Blame VATICAN CITY AP) - The Vatican Ecumenical Council vot- final endorsement today of a historic Roman Catholic declaration deploring anti-Semitism and declaring that the Jews as a whole cannot be blamed for the crucifixion of Christ. The bishops voted to leave out the controversial word "dei-cide" while stating that the Jews should not be presented as a people "rejected by God or accursed." By a vote of 1.763-250 In St. Peter'i Basilica the bishops of the Roman Catholic Church gave over-all approval to the declaration on the rhurrh'i attitude toward non-Christlani including the Jews. The declaration, with its key passages about the Jews and a statement denouncing racial discrimination, will become a church decree after one more formality: promulgation by Pope Paul and the council in a public session of the assembly. This possibly will come on Oct. 28 or Nov. 18. The document easily obtained the two-thirds vote it needed for approval, but the size of the opposition vote was the largest given to any council document in a final ballot. Opponents Included conservative and Middle East prelates opposed to the entire document and progrfsslve bishops who wanted to retain the "delclde" wording that received prelim-inary approval In the council a year ago. A council spokesman, giving the vote results, said the bish ops in a specific ballot on the "dcicide" reference voted 1,821 to 245 to leave it out. In a previous draft the sentence had been worded: "The Jewish people should never be presented as one rejected, curs-Continued on 4A, Col. 7 Tmlby: Mostly cloudy but not so much rain.

Tito is as independent as a man can be and remain a Communist. From time to time his policies are friendly to the United States, the Soviet Union, or hostile to both and allied with the neutral countries. The mobility of Tito has paid off. His country has not been involved in any of the little wars of the past decade. Yugoslavia has re ceived foreign aid from both sides, the United States and the Soviet Union, and all the while he and not the men in the Kremlin have made decisions in Yugoslavia. Compare a stuck Fidel Castro to the unchained Tito. It became visible during the nuclear confrontation in 1962 that Moscow, not Havana, could make Cuban policy. Fidel Goofs Castro's dream was making Cuba the first industrialized society in the Caribbean. He goofed badly. Factories were ordered from the Soviet Union and eastern European states and later it was discovered the Cubans did not have the raw materials to feed the new factories. In other cases the new factories produced the goods all right, but Castro could have imported the finished products at a cheaper price. The cost of maintaining cha-cha-cha Leninism in Cuba climbed up to almost half a billion dollars a year, and Moscow had to pay the bill. Meanwhile. Che Guevara traveled around the world rapping the "moderate" policy of Russia and encouraging an imitation of the militant policy of China. Guevara's remarks, especially in Africa, angered Soviet' leaders and embarrassed Castro, whose stomach was being filled by the So viet Union. Dissent grew among eastern European states. They argued that for eign aid to Cuba was wasted, and at least two coun tries told Moscow they did not care to participate next year in any trade agreement with Castro. Dove Gesture Well. Guevara disappears and Castro makes a grand gesture of permitting any disgruntled Cuban an exit to the United States. He emphasizes, against the facts, that Cubans could have come any time in the past . . . that the United States cut off transportation between the two countries. The lat ter, some informed people believe, is the first hint that Castro is going to strangle the hawk and start wearing a dove on his shoulder and cooing toward the United States. Easier relations with the United States could mean more trade by Cuba in places where United States influence discourages trade. Castro could reduce his military and release much money for civilian needs. In a sense, economically and politically, he could relax. So it is believed by these informed people Castro is putting on the Tito makeup. The permission of Cubans to leave is only the first touch of powder on his face. Eeld As La Gorce Bandits By CHARLES 0. KRUEGER Rrportrr of The Miami w Jewel bandits who prey on rich homeowners struck twice more last night, but police grabbed two suspects today and said they had been identified by the victims in one robbery. Ironically, the suspects had stashed their identification in a car driven by a woman, and when she was picked up near the scene of the robberies, police quickly found a lead to them. The latest homes hit were on exclusive La Gorce Island. The victims were Mrs. Elsa Stub-flcfield, widow of prominent fi nancial and civic leader William 11. Stubblefield, and Mr. and Mrs. James Robert Joyce. The thieves took a total of $11,-500 worth of gems and bound their victims. Arrested later after their wallets provided their identification were Levy Carlton Mears Jr., 24, who has been charged with armed robbery before, and Anthony F. Simon, 25. Mears gave his address as 12311 SW 35th St. and Simon lives at 9V SW 27th Rd. They were arrested in Simon's 1962 Corvette at NW 19th Avenue and 54th Street In Miami and In the car police found wet clothing and gloves. Metro Lt.

In Pompano Beach, hardest hit by the torrential downpours with 23.33 inches of rain over a 43-hour period, water was re ceding on U. S. 1 and the Police Department said the highway was passable. Water was still deep in low spots. A woman walking her dog in Fort Lauderdale was killed by a hit-and-run auto. The victim, Mrs. Ernest Cowen, 45, of 1029 NW 6th Ave., was struck by the car near her home shortly after 7 p.m., yesterday. Lt.

A check of the license led to Paul Rankins, 38, of 1608 NW 6th Ave., Fort Lauderdale. Shurlock said Rankins was charged with leaving the scene of an accident. More rain fell in Pompano Beach than in any hurricane of the last two decades. Children rowed small boats in the streets. By MARY LOUISE WILKINSON Rpportpr of The Miami Nel The Coast Guard today put into effect a "stepping- stone pattern or ships to guide small boats carrying refugees from Cuba across the Florida Straits to Key West. Clearing skies were expected to increase the ragtag flotilla in and out of the Matanzas fishing village of Camarioca after heavy seas and thundershowers slowed the do-it-yourself operations to a trickle. Due in Key West today w ere five small boats the 30-foot Cindy with 19 refugees, a 25-foot craft with 24 aboard and three others that left Cuba today with an unknown number of passengers. The stepping-stone system of the Coast Guard works this way: Three large cutters the Diligence, the Ariadne and the Lamar, diverted from a shakedown training cruise stand 15 miles off the Cuban coast at regular intervals. When a boat is sighted leaving Camarioca, one of the cutters radios the word along the line so the vessel is under escort and surveillance at all times. Midway across the Straits the small boats are handed along to a battery of 95-foot cutters, the Capes Shoalwater, Trinity, Knox and Darby. As the boats near Key West they are met at the sea buoy for escort into port by a 40-foot patrol vessel. There the refugees undergo preliminary screening before being sent to the Cuban Refugee Center here for processing. Havana Radio, monitored here, said two boats braved high seas to reach Camarioca today. The craft were identified as the GG-2 and the Miramar, out of Key West and Miami respectively. The Cuban broadcast also said several exile boats were waiting at Cay Sal Banks for calmer weather before making the dash to Cuba. But the Coast Guard said no reports of the boats had been received from the outlying cutters. The total of rcfucee arrivals, according to the Coast Guard, was expected to reach more than 350 today with the arrival of the latest boats. Numerous exiles here, fearing Fidel Castro might slam shut his exit Bates any time. hurried to get smafl boats ready Continued on 4A.

State Attorney Richard Gerstein confirmed that Dr. Herschel Gordon, of 1919 Bay Dr., Miami Beach and Dr. Lucicn Gordon. a dentist, of 2545 South Bayshore Dr., came to his office yes terday by subpena. The Gordons are not related. Dr. Herschel Gordon refused to answer questions without his attorney, Hilton Carr, bring present, Gerstein said. The State Attorney said he would test this stand in court and seek to talk to Gordon again. Dr. Lucien Gordon refused to waive immunity but said he had some affidavits he would like to show, Gerstein said. But after conferring with his attorney he decided not to show the affidavits and was excused. Gerstein said he will also try , tn Question Lucien Gordon I again. Meanwhile, a subpena was issued for Dr. George K. Hadju, of 333 W. 47th St., Miami Beach, who was once convicted and sentenced to 18 months for the unlawful practice of medicine. An appeal is still pending. Pretty Judy Hynms, a 22-year-old Jackson Memorial Hospital technician, vanished a month ago after saying she was going shopping. The rental car she was using was later found abandoned in Atlanta. Efforts to find the girl there proved fruitless. Gerstein said Judy's father, Coral Gables builder Gabriel Hyams, and her uncle, Stanley Pyser, came to him recently and asked for help because police had reached a dead end in the investigation. The two Gordons were known friends of Judy and her family suggested that they be called in to determine if they knew anything about her disappear- KS1 Adv.' ancc. Movies O'Dav .

IB ZB ELENA PUTS ON MUSCLE Tropical Storm Elena slowly gained strength today as it drifted up the Atlantic 1,400 miles east of Miami. Forecasters said the storm poses no threat to any land area for the next day or two. Elena, packing 50-mile-an-hour winds, plodded toward the northwest at 6 miles an hour. At 5 a m., an Air Force reconnaissance plane located the center of Elena near latitude 25.6 north and longitude 58.1 west. The season's fifth tropical storm v as forecast to continue drifting northwestward during the next 14 hours with no change in size but a gradual increase in intensity. Gales extend out 3M miles northward from the center. REASLER Conform! Across the land, pro fessional non-conform ists are aghast at what is being done to the schoolchildren of Amer ica. In community after com munity there are reports school authorities are actual ly forcing pupils to get their hair cut so they won't look like bouffant sheep dogs. And the cry goes up: In dividualism is doomed! In school after school, nonconformists who have gone underground get out disturbing reports by short wave radio and forked stick: Girl students are forbidden to wear whatever clothing they choose, such as tight slacks or short skirts. "We are stifled by con formity!" scream the out raged, who can project na tional regimentation from a fifth grade teacher in Dubu que, banning propellor bean ies. It's Old Hat Creeping conformity in our school system, if it is any comfort to the New Breed of Tide Fighters, is nothing new. Dictatorial professors have been with us always, and even when I was a boy there was always somebody lashing out relentlessly against the free, untrammeled youth of America. Nowadays, they have court tests to see if it's legal to make a student bob his page boy. We never even got to have court tests. (Has any body ever put court tests to a court test?) We had to do what tyrannical teachers said, or suffer evil conse quences. When I was in high school in Plant City Fla.) there were definite marks defining the real swinging noncon formist. You wore no socks, rolled your pants legs up three folds, turned up your shirt collar in the back and tied a handkerchief around your head, pirate style. The Tacky Look The principal ruled all these out on entirely unconstitutional grounds. She said it made you look tacky and common. We didn't know how to protest good in those days. Nobody even had a picket sign. And the authorities met the most logical, eloquent arguments in those days I made Clarence Dar-row lock sick by saying thusly: We can't make you do anything. John we can just make you wish you had. Most of my high school days consequently were spent putting socks back on, rolling my trousers back down, turning down my shirt cellar and putting my handkerchief back in my pocket. An odd set of nostalgic schoolday memories, I must say. Take heart, free thinkers of today: You can always be nonconformists after graduation. I would have mvself, except those noncon formists all lock exactly alike. .1
