Aide Faces Demand for Cuba Action By LEWIS OULlCK WASHINGTON (AP)-Asst. Secretary of State Roy Rubottom was summoned before a congressional committee today to face a demand for U.S. action to halt Cuba's postrevolution wave of killings. Chairman Wayne flays (0-Ohio) of the inquiring House Foreign Affairs subcommittee, said he wants to know "What the State Department is going to do to calm Castro down before he depopulates Cuba." Led Revolution Fidel Castro led the revolution which deposed dictator Fulgencio Batista on New Year's Day. Hays himself suggested tough U.S. economic measures against Cuba, short of sending in troops. He said they might include cutting off credit to Cuba or barring imports of sugar from the island. "The United States cannot ignore mass murder now no matter where it is committed," Hays said. "This guy Castro is starting off in the same direction (as Batista), only worse. Provide Fair Trials But Rep. Alvin M. Bentley <R- Mich), a member of the subcommittee, said he didn't know what the United States could to about changing the way justice is handled in a foreign counry. He did express hope that Cuba's government would provide fair trials. The two spoke in interviews amid evidence of mounting congressional repugnance to the Cuban executions. In the Senate, Sen. Homer Capehart (R-Ind) said the killings create "the spectacle of a bearded monster stalking through Cuba." Castro declared in Havana Wednesday that far from calling off the executions, "to the contrary we have given orders to shoot every one of. these murderers." The reported execution toll was mounting. then 180 and still N 1 T E SERVICE CALL $3.95 AUTHORIZED TV HE 7-3833 Y Largest U.S. Strike Near End at Harvester OF IKE'S BUDGET Wants No Pressured Support NEW PROPULSION CAR PROPOSED— This is a three-eighths scale model of an "idea" car with a wholly new concept of propulsion to be shown by Chrysler's DeSoto Division at the Chicago Auto Show beginning Saturday.

DICTATORIAL BLOOD BATH Democracy Near in Cuba? By .TAMES MARLOW Associated Press News Analyst WASHINGTON (AP) — The announced purpose of Fidel Castro's revolution, which threw out the dictatorship of Fulgencio Batista, was to restore democracy to Cuba. The question now is will it? The revolutionary government established by Castro — with th,e Provisional President, Manuel Ur- lent it may be—Cuba will be un der a dictatorship for at least an- i other year and a half. At the end of that time, new elections areitista are not in accordance with supposed to be held The stated reason for the 18- month delay is to let new political parties organize so they can compete in the elections. Just because there will be a dictatorship until then, new factions may arise, even among Castro's followers, because of dissatisfaction with the revolutionary rutia, handpicked by him — has government and the course it dissolved the Cuban Congress and " " announced It will rule by decree for at least 18 months. That means—no matter by what name it is called nor how benevo- follows. Factions mean disputes and disputes can lead to new civil war. Castro has pledged that his country will remain a democracy.

At best they've been given revolutionary trials. Castro justifies them on these grounds: That "anyone who has killed 15 or 30 people has no right to live." This is Castro passing judgment. It is not a decision reached by democratic proces or agreement. It's Castro deciding what's right or wrong. He has the power to make such decisions because he has the backing of his armed forces, a situation which a political philosopher By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The nation's largest strike, Involving 37,000 International Harvester Co. workers, appeared near an end today but a forecast of widespread walkouts In the oil industry darkened the labor picture. Negotiators for the Harvester, Company and the striking United Auto Workers have reached nn agreement on a three-year contract. The union's Harvester council meets Friday to vote on the terms and ratification appeared likely, ending the costly two- month strike. 25 Factories j The walkout involved the big farm implement firm's 25 factories, transfer points and depots. On the debit side of the labor news, 0. A. Knight, president of the Oil Chemical and Atomic Workers, with a membership of 105,000 in the oil industry, said widespread strikes are likely to develop early next week. Knight's prediction came as federal mediators in Kansas City reported no progress in contract, talks between the Sinclair Oil Co. and the union representing 9,500 of its workers. Strike notices which expire at midnight Saturday have been filed with Sinclair and most of the 600 individual oil plants with which the union has contracts. The Sinclair contract is the only one negotiated on a nationwide basis in the oil industry by the union but it usually sets the pattern for other contracts on a plant-by-plant basis. The union! has asked for a 'wage hike of 25 > cents an hour or 2! cents an hour; plus fringe benefits. Sinclair has I not offered a wage increase. Thej average wage now is $2.71 ai)' hour. In other labor -disputes, the nation's longest strike involves 13,000 employes in seven plants of the Pittsburgh Plate Glass Co.

AttBOGAST WASHINGTON (AP) ~ Chairman Clarence Cannon (D-Mo) said today he does not want witneses pressured to support President Eisenhower's budget when they appear before his House Appropriations Committee. Cannon criticized a letter from Budget Director Maurice H. Stans which cautioned department and agency heads against asking more money than the budget would provide. The letter reportedly reminds the government officials that it is a violation of the 1921 Budget Act to nsk increases in budget requests without clearing them through proper channels. But a Budget Bureau spokesman denied that it was meant to gag prospective witnesses. Eisenhower will send his 77- billion-dollar budget to Congress Monday, Cannon's committee plans to start hearings Tuesday. Copies of the Sfans' letter were not available on Capitol Hill, but Cannon said he was aware of its existence. "How are we going to intelH- gently act on a budget when the witnesses who were the experts in preparing it are under restraint when we ask them to give us de- f AUSTIN (M!nrv.)

Wages are not involved. In Los Angelei, 1,000 supermarkets have been closed since Jan. 1 by a strike-lockout. The strike is by the Retail Clerks Union and the lockout by the Food Employ-i ers Council, representing thej store operators, in retaliation. Th« strike - lockout has idled 16,000 persons and has changed the shopping habits of housewives. They do their marketing at right. But it's not democratic. Trail of Bitterness At a minimum these executions will leave behind them a trail of bitterness — if not obsession for vengeance—among the families of the men slain by firing squads. They will make some, perhaps many, Cubans uneasy about the future course of the revolutionary government, just as they have already dismayed many members of the U.S. Congress. Thus the Castro people, who professed to despise the undemocratic brutality of the Batista followers toward prisoners, are leaving themselves open to accusation of doing the very things they said they wanted to destroy.

Japan Goes Wild as Dogs Are Recovered TOKYO (AP) - Japan's press, i radio and public erupted with ,ecstasies of delight today at the [news that two of 15 sled dogs i abandoned in the antarctic 11 | months ago had been found alive. j "Two dogs survive!" headlined | Tokyo's big dailies jn type normal- jly reserved for the death of Sta- I lin, the outbreak of war and similar events. ! Blared News Radios blared the news hourly. Newspapers, radio stations and news agencies were flooded with calls for more information. There was as much rejoicing as there had been protest when the dogs were left behind last February, A six-man advance party was flown by helicopter Wednesday night from the antarctic expedition ship Soya to reopen, the de- serted Japanese base on Ongul Island. Masamk Murayama, lender of the party, radioed back that the two dogs came bounding up, wagging their tails in greeting. He said they were in good condition. Murayama's first message gave no word of the other 13 dogs, or of how the two had managed to survive. Heavy Ice The 15 sled dogs, members of the vanishing Japanese Karafuto breed, were left behind when heavy ice kept the Soya from reaching the base to restock it for the antarctic winter. Bad weather halted flying after removal of the 11 Japanese scientists who had staffed the base and nine other dogs. The dogs left behind were tied up and had food for only a few weeks.
