S. meddling In the revolutionary war crimes trials. Newspapers gave it front-page play along with a declaration by Asst. Secretary of State Roy Rubottom that the United States is not going to intervene. Both Castro and Provisional President Manuel Urrutia said Cuba wants cordial relations with its big neighbor to the north, but not at the price of halting executions because of American criticism. Death Toll 200 Fresh shootings brought the death toll of the firing squads to 200.

Mikoyan and Secretary of State Dulles conferred for more than two hours today on U. S.-Soviet differences. They arranged for another meeting in the jlate afternoon. The deputy premier of the Soviet Union said he and Dulles—confronting each other ncross a table in Dulles' office — had "an exchange of views on question* of particular interest to our two countries." The only thing Mikoyan would say to reporters as he left the Forenoon meeting was that the discussions would be resumed at 4 p.m. (EST). From the Stale Department, Mikoyan' was hurrying to the Capitol for a luncheon with members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Gone to Office Mikoyan, with Ambassador Mikhail Menshikov and other aides, had gone into Dulles' 6th floor office at the State Department at 10:30 a.m. It was nearly l p.m. when he emerged, walking fast and appearing determined to try to keep his engagement at the Capitol on time. Aides and security men were walking fast to keep up. In the diplomatic reception room, the State Department press office had carefully assembled close to 100 U.S. and foreign newsmen. They were told Mikoy- an would be brought through that room on his way to the elevator. Wrecked Plan But Mikoyan wrecked this carefully laid plan by zipping past the door. Caught in a crush of photographers and reporters as he sought to pass through the regular reception room, Mikoyan's first reaction to questions was: "No press, no press." He made no comment about what Dulles and he might have discussed, the atmosphere, or the progress of their meeting. It had been a foregone conclusion, however, that the talks would touch on the East - West deadlock over German unification and the future of disputed Berlin. Out of their discussions could come an early high level East- West meeting on the whole range of German problems. Today's session—the second during Mikoyan's two-weeks visit to this country — was described by diplomats as strictly a probing operation with each of the veteran antagonists 'of the cold war seeking to discover possible weaknesses or concessions in the policies of the other.

But 200 miles up something went wrong. (AP Photofax) ENGINE TROUBLE Atlas Goes Less Than 200 Miles IJy JACK KING CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla.

The 80-foot war rocket soared on off perfect what appeared to be a start but today the Air Force said it flew less than 200 miles. It said trouble developed in the rocket engine system. iiiu The Air Force shot an Atlas the blazing "out full 6,000 route for Nov. 28.

It is hoped that revenues will exceed that amount, although the margin may be only 100 million dollars or less. There will also be some bad fiscal news in the message, officials conceded—a slightly higher deficit than was anticipated for the current budget year. Spending this year is expected to mount fairly close to 81 billion dollars, instead of the $79,200,000,000 estimated officially in September. Much of the increase is attributed to the proposed $1,400,000,000 increase in this country's subscription to the International Monetary Fund, which Eisenhower recommended last week. Exceed Estimate Revenues will have risen to more than 68 billion dollars instead of the ti7 billion officially predicted. But when the government year ends next June 30 the deficit reportedly will exceed by several hundred million dollars the earlier estimate of $12,200,000,000. Officials said mounting concern over the depreciation of the dollar, coupled with concern lest this countiy eventually price itself out of world markets, has reinforced the administration's decision to make a strong stand against def- i icil financing. j IKE (Continued on Page U) Legislature to Act on Party Label Proposal . ST. PAUL (AP) — Three highly controversial bills were introduced in the Minnesota Legislature today. They are: To put to a vote in 1900 the question of calling a convention to revise the state Constitution. .Providing for party labels for legislators. Submitting a constitutional amendment on reapportionment. Two conservatives, Sen. Stanley Holmquist of Grove City, and Sen. John Richardson of St. Cloud, and a liberal, Sen. Harold Schultz of St. Paul, the minority leader, sponsored of the proposal for ft constitutional convention. Luther Chief Author Chief author of the party label bill was Rep. Sally Luther of Minneapolis. She said the bill would make it possible for the voting public to be better able to know the party affiliation of candidates | and elected legislators. It has been passed in the House in previous sessions but it has met strong resistance in the Senate. The reapportionment bill was patterned after recommendations of the Governor's Citizen-Legislator Committee on Reapportionment headed by Mrs. Stanley Kane, ol Golden Valley and Phillip Duff Jr. of Red Wing. The reapportkmment proposal, also sponsored by Mrs. Luther, would provide for population as « sole basis for representation in th» Senate but modifies the population requirement in the House in favor of less populated counties. On Population Basis • A second reapporlionment bitt. also was introduced in the Houso by Hep. WiJlard Munger of Duluth. His proposal provides for a constitutional amend ment but would base reapportionment on a population basis for the House and on area for the Senate. Other measures introduced in the House were .these: Calling for an interim commission to study "possible violation and encroachment by the commissioner of welfare of the constitutional rights of inmates of state institutions," Minneapolis, Rep.

Leo Lau. erman of Olivia today launched his third attempt to repeal tut Minnesota presidential primary law, which he says "serves no useful purposes." Others have credited the law with having an important bearing on both the 1952 and 1956 presidential elections. Supporters of President Eisenhower have said the surprising writein victory he scored in the 1952 primary helped persuade him to become a candidate. Spurred Efforts And backers of Adlai Stevenson say that his loss in Minnesota to Sen. Estes Kefauver spurred him to the efforts that brought him his second nomination in 1956, "A careful check," said Sen, Lauerman, "shows that a presidential primary costs the taxpay. ers of Minnesota $275,000. I call thi$ repeal bill a real economy measure. PRIMARY (Continued on Page 11) Weather Official U. S. Readings from THE HERALD Weather Site on Roof of Fire Station: Reading 8:30 a.m. — 16 below.
