Highway 61 ving a life sentence for an attempt to assassinate former President Truman in November 1950. The Nationalist party seeks total independence for Puerto Rico, now a commonwealth of the United States, even though its people have turned down in referendum voting offers of ful independence. Puerto Ricans are citizens of the United States. The 13 party members were tried on charges of conspiring to bring about Puerto Rico's independence by force and vioence and armed revolution. Moral Fingerprints In his summation. U.S. Atty. J. Edward Lumbard declared, "every one of these defendants has his moral fingerprints on the guns that were used in Washington, and those who participated were praised as martyrs." Defense attorneys claimed that the Congress shooting and the attempt to assassinate Truman were actions by individual Nationalists and not a conspiracy. They said the prosecution used the congressional shooting to "inflame the minds of the jurors." Several defendants had testified during the trial that they had no idea when they joined the party that it intended violence or gunplay. Begun Sept. 8 In his charge to the jury, Walsh said any defendant must be acquitted if the jury believed he did not know that force and violence were to be used. The trial started Sept. 8. The four convicted earlier for the Congress shooting were Dolores (Lolita) Lebvon, 34; Rafael Cancel Miranda. 23; Irvin Plores Rodriguez, 29; and Andres Figuerofl Cordero, 29.

N.Y. dfh- A Philippine proposal to recess the general U.N. disarmament debate for a month ran into sharp Western opposition today. U.S. circles voiced concern over the Philippine plan calling for suspension of the debate until Nov. 15 while a working group composed of the United States, the Soviet Union, Britain, France and Canada study East and West arms proposals. One American .informant said the United States would throw its support behind a Canadian move to continue the disarmament debate in the 60-nation Political Committee and In the Assembly, and then turn the problem over to the same five powers after the Assembly closes shop In December. Canada Ready Canada was slated to present its proposal formally In the Political Committee today. Philippine Delegate Felixberto Serrano also readied a revision of his proposal for submission. The U.S. Informant said the Philippine suggestion was brought in -without warning and was "wholly impractical." "No working group, however capable, could do an adequate Job of studying such a complicated subject as disarmament In barely a month," he said, "besides, there is no valid reason for ending the debate Just when it has gotten under way." The Philippine delegate caused a minor sensation when he brought up his proposal In the Political Committee yesterday. ..
