(UPl Telephoto) Expulsion of Negro may boomerang on Kremlin JIOSCOW (UPI)—Tlie Soviet Union's expulsion of an .American Negro diplomat may develop into a propaganda boomerang for l:he Kremlin, diplomatic observers said today. The .A-merican, Norris D. GaiTiett, 32, of Los Angeles, Calif., was declared "Persona non grata" Tuesday and ordered to leave the country for "hostile activiiies" among African students. Soviet newspapers called Garnett a "spy.'' but at the same lime focused on unrest among -African students. The United States embassy and Garnett denied all charges. Soviet authorities began a counter - propaganda campaign Tuesday night. One African student charged in a Moscow tele- lision program that Garnett had engaged in "dirty activities," trying to entice African students to the West "to de­ prive African countries of specialists." Izvestia, tlie official newspaper of the Soviet Union, said Garnett made "slanderous" statements against Russia and offered students "all kinds of benefits" if they would leave the country. Garnett said he spoke the African Swahili language and had been in contact with students from Kenya. "They came to me with their troubles but I told them there was nothing I could do for them," Garnett said. A group of 29 Kenya students left the Soviet Union last month after complaining about racial discrimination at the university in Baku. Ghana diplomats reported that a Ghana student was apparently murdered in Baku recently.

Cyclone hits East Pakistan DACCA, East Pakistan (UPI) —A cyclone packing wind of 100 miles an hour struck a wide area of East Pakistan during tlie night. Authorities feared the storm had taken a heavy loss of life.

Communications between Dacca and six districts were disrupted, making it impossible to obtain any details on losses in outlying areas. The heaviest damage may have occurred in coastal areas and more than 300 offshore islands in the Bay of Bengal where about 3 million persons Uve.

He says the work is too dangerous. Ellis Island once welcomed new citizens to U.S. NEW YORK (UPI)-Only the ghosts of a vital era of .America's history swish through the dense weeds and deserted red brick buildings on key-shaped Ellis Island in New York Harbor. An iron baby crib stands starkly amid chunks of plaster on the worn floor of the cavernous, dust covered rgistry hall. The tile - walled dormitories that once served as teeming quarters for nationals of dozens of countries, their more than 40 different languages mingled in a cacophony of sound and song, gape emptily now, the smells and noise and tears and laughter lost to history. The crunch of a lone caretaker's footstep is the only living sound on the island. The groaning of the ferry boat "Ellis Island" rotting in a slip once filled by steamers, their holds bulging with human cargo, occasionally breaks the sea- swept air. This is Ellis Island today— the cold, institutional but revered gateway through which more than IB million persons entered America between 1892 and 1954. President Johnson Monday breathed new life into the 27- acre complex that stands near tlie shadow of the Statue of Liberty. The President proclaimed Ellis Island a national shrine, making it part of the Statue of Liberty National Monument. He also announced a S6 million rehabilitation program for the island, with much of the task to be undertaken by workers at a new Job Corps conservation center to be established on the nearby New Jersey shore. .&3.:'*^-:ai^..v GATEWAY FOR MILLIONS - Proclaimed a part of the Statue of Liberty National Monument by President Johnson, Ellis island was for more than 60 years the principal point of entry for immigrants to the United States. Facilities were strained by constant masses of newcomers during the heyday of immigration, as in this 1921 scene. By the time the center was closed in 1954, it had provided a temporary home for more than 20 million would-be new Americans.
