Sides Refuse to Yield in Sinclair Negotiations KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP)-Both sides have refused to yield In wage negotiations between Sinclair Oil Co., and the union representing the firm's production and pipeline workers, a federal mediator says. "It doesn't look too good," said the mediator, John E. Pennell, after Tuesday's joint talks ended in an impasse. He scheduled separate meetings today with negotiators for Sinclair and the Oil, Chemical and Atomic Workers Union. Strike notices that expire at midnight Saturday have been filed by the union with Sinclair and with most of the other 600 oil plants with which the union has contracts. The union has 105,000 members employed in the industry, including 9.500 by Sinclair. "Expiration of our notice permits us to strike on or after Jan. 18," said B. J. Schafer, OCAW vice president who is negotiating with Sinclair. The union has asked Sinclair for a 25 cents-an-hour wage increase or for 21 cents an hour plus fringe benefits. Sinclair has not offered a wage increase. The average wage now is $2.71 an hour.

(AP) - A young soldier and his wife were killed and their infant daughter was injured Tuesday when their car rammed a Continental Trail- ways bus 40 miles west of this southwestern Colorado community. Fourteen bus passengers were injured. All but one were treated and released. Army Pvt. Heinz H.

The victims' 14 - month - old daughter, Carmen, suffered a fractured elbow and head cuts. She and one of the bus passengers, Arvo Martin, 51, of Telluride Colo., were hospitalized.

KRESGE COMPANY 'Across From Courthouse • Austin CUBAN REIGN OF TERROR Criticism Raised Against Executions WASHINGTON (AP)-Ncw congressional criticism was raised today against the wave of executions by Cuba's new revolutionary government. The new regime, apparently taken aback by the storm of criticism provoked in the United States and elsewhere by the firing squad shootings, announced Tuesday night the executions were being suspended. « No date for their resumption was given. But a government spokesman sairl that when they are, newsmen as well as the general public will have the oppor- .unity to watch the proceedings from military trial to. execution. Forfeit Respect One House member said that if the executions continue without formal trials the regime of rebel chieftain Fidel Castro stands to "forfeit the respect of the whole Hemisphere." Purify Nation Castro, in a Havana speech Tuesday defended the firing sqund sentences imposed on Cubans convicted of war crimes by military tribunals. ! AUSTIN (Minn.) HERA10 ft Wednesday, Jan. 14, '59 V es Tire He said the executions were ordered Only for those whose death "is necessary to purify the nation." The number of those executed was estimated Unofficially at 150. "It is regrettable that Castro is executing these gentlemen without real trials." said Sen. Homer Capehart (R-Ind). Capehart, a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and its Latin American Affairs subcommittee, told a reporter: Actions of Dictator "These (executions) appear to be the actions of a dictator or someone demanding revenge. It is a poor way to try to win support and confidence of the public." Another member of the same subcommittee, Sen. George Aiken (R-Vt), said if the new regime continues widespread executions it "can lose n great deal of public support," Engaged in Torture . Aikeu said he was told on n visit to Cuba last year that the Batistn government had engaged in torture and cruelties "nnd I suppose It's human nature to want to get even," Nevertheless, Afken said, Castro should carry out what Aikcn termed his public pledges for fair trials of political opponents. Rep. Charles 0. Porter (D-Ore), a specialist in Latin American affairs, said that considering the number of people involved in the revolution he doesn't regard the executions as a "blood bath"—a term used Monday by Sen. Wayne Morse (D-Ore). However, Porter added: Wholesale Shooting* "The whole purpose of the revolution Is gainsaid if they have wholesale shootings without trials. They will forfeit the respect of the whole hemisphere." In his Havana speech, Castro, obviously stung by U.S. criticism of the shootings, accused the U.S. press of fault finding and nsked: "Why didn't they attack when the Batista government was executing people en masse?" Defended Sentence'! Earlier, Roberto Agrainonte, Cuba's new foreign minister, also defended the death sentences Imposed on Batista supporters convicted of war crimes by military tribunals, "If the military tribunals did not do what they are doing now, moving quickly to assure fast justice, the families of those who were murdered and tortured would take justice into their own hands and ninny innocent would fall with the accused." Rep. Porter took * somewhat similar view. "I'm sure the government is trying to follow due process of law," Porter told a reporter. "However, Castro has a situation which is pretty hard to control. There are a lot of people with pretty strong feelings." 1WTCHER CHAIRMAN DIRS EFFINGHAM, 111. (AP)—Albert H.
