Civilians Asked to Stay Away From Rebels HAVANA, Cuba (AP) — Civilians were warned today to keep clear of rebel positions as the government proclaimed an all-out drive to wipe out the insurgents. Army planes are reported to already have bombed the outskirts of Placetas on the main-highway east of Santa Clara, where the rebels are tightening a ring around the capital of Las Villas The two-year rebellion faces its bloodiest turn as government forces struck at heavily populated concentrated districts which until now have been kept out of the range of gunfire. A shortage of weapons and ammunition was hampering the government of President .Fulgencio Batista in countering attacks by the rebel forces of Fidel Castro. The rebels control highways connecting Havana and Santa Clara, and travel is risky. While Castro's forces appeared gaining strength on arms smuggled from the United States, there was grumbling in government circles at the attitude taken by Washington. The United States was accused by many of helping the rebels, in effect, by maintaining an embargo on shipment of weapons to the Batista government. The insurgents, hi a more confident mood now, are able for the first time to occupy populated places instead of waging stab attacks and hasty retreats to hideouts in the countryside. The rebels are reported creating local civil governments in anticipation of taking over complete towns. You Can Help Toddler to Be Independent How independent a toddler can be. When he is not quite three, often he can get his own drinks of water, dry his own hands, go to the toilet, keep out of the streets, and play by himself. He has learned how to walk steadily, is beginning to run more smoothly than he had before, and can jump up and down. Soon he will be running simple errands for his mother and playing simple games By the time he is five, he will be able to go about the neighborhood by himself with simple limits on how far he can go. Many of the abilities he displays during this period result largely from the natural course of bodily development. But, most parents have done a lot to help. Since long before he took his first baby steps, they have encouraged him with interest, smiles, and praise. Step by step he has begun to take car of himself, to eat, to learn to play with new toys. They have welcomed his interest in the world about him. In other words, they have taught him how to like, to learn and to be curious. As a result, he is happy exploring and Jearning new things.

The air search began Friday over the jungle area of the Orinoco River delta. The amateur radio operators reported that the balloon and its four passengers had landed near Federnales, a Venezuelan port on the Atlantic at the northern edge of the wide delta. The town is just 20 miles west of the tip of Trinidad in the British West Indies.

They had food for three months in the 15tt-by-7%- foot gondola, which was built to double as a lifeboat if necessary. This was the first attempt of a free balloon to float across the Atlantic. The purpose was to study weather conditions and wind currents. Prince Philip, husband of 2-Month-Old Baby Slapped; Dies of Injury SOOTH ST.

LOUIS (AP) — Mrs. June Walter, 22, who wants only to see her native England just once more before she dies, may not get her wish after all. Her .doctor told the Military Air Transport Service that the young mother of two took a turn for the worse Friday and the plane trip home is not advisable now. Mrs. Walter has blood cancer. She knows she is dying, and her greatest wish is to see her home soil.
