Chou' arrived at the head of a delegation of Chinese ex perts on the dispute that has separated Peking and Moscow Leaders of other communist- ruled nations also were gathering here for secret talks. Only Albania will not be represented. The occasion is the celebration Saturday of the 47th anni versary of the bolshevik revo lution. . Pravda published an appeal clearly intended as the keynote of .the first big gathering of communist leaders since Khrushchev was ousted. ' Early Change Unlikely ' ""The Communist party of the Soviet Union," it said, "calls for an implacable struggle against the appearance and survival of any kind of nationalism and chauvinism and against tendencies toward national narrow-mindedness and discrimina tion." . Tho the atmosphere is dif- j - ferent since Khrushchev's fall, specialists on Chinese-Russian relations, see little immediate prospect of improvement, be yond, disguising the ;nore glaring points of conflict Neither side has yet given much ground. And word from listening posts such as Hong Kong and Tokyo is that Peking has adopted a wait-and-see attitude. A Private Argument A source high in the Russian Communist party said there has been no basic change in Rus sian policies since Khrushchev was ousted. There is general expectation among observers here tnat Chou's meetings will result in agreement to keep the dispute private without actually recon ciling outlooks. The meetings also may bring an understanding on Russian plans for a Dec. 15 preparatory Continued on page 2, coL 3 FITZPATRICK Included in the package, which cost 20 dollars, were flour, cereal, sugar, chocolate bars, and caviar.

Sent to Moscow Address , Zajdlik,' part-owner of the Slavia restaurant, added that the package was sent to Khrushchev at Russia's international headquarters in Moscow. 'N Yesterday a message came to Zajdlik telling him what happened: , '.'We regret to inform, you that this package could not be delivered because of an incorrect address." "I thought this would happen," he said, "but I just wanted to dramatize the way they do things over there. .. , " .- V ROCKEFELLER AS A DIVIDER Says Snipers Cut Barry Chances IKE HAILS ROMNEY Eisenhower enters fight over Republican leadership with a wire of praise to Roraney- Story on page 4.

W I r i TIME VOWS BATTLE TO KEEP LION Owner Disputes Plea of Neighbors (Picture on back page) . Willow Grove, Pa.', ' Nov. ' 5 Of) Howard Sautter vowed today that he would fight all the way to keep, his full-grown pet lion living in his back yard. "He's tame and so crippled he can't jump two feet, and I'll pay $1,000 fo anyone who can prove he roars," said Sautter. "The only noise around here at night is the barking of neighbors' dogs. . They bark all night" .. ; .. Township- commissioners ordered the lion banished, from Willow Grove, , a," suburb of Philadelphia, last- night after receiving a : petition from 55 of Sautter's neighbors. - Complains of Roaring Mrs. John Thompson, who lives about a block from Sautter, said she can hear the lion roaring at night, and constantly expects : to find : it waiting to pounce on her when she goes outside.' i " , . "He doesn't bother anybody," Sautter told a newsman today. "If he did, I would get rid of him just , like I did six others that I owned at various times over the years. About one lion in a thousand can be kept as a pet, and he's one of them." Sautter, 53, operates a gasoline station and lives behind it. Leo stays either in a cage or, in. cooler weather, in .the garage. .The entire back yard is inclosed by a six-foot steel fence. Sautter, when time permits, takes people to see Leo. Will Get Lawyer Commissioners ordered Police Chief Frank S. Jackson to tell Sautter to get rid of Leo, and, if he refuses, to prosecute him under a township ordi nance forbidding puoiic nuisances. There is no law here specifically forbidding the keeping of a lion, tho chickens and pigs are outlawed. Sautter bought Leo as a 3-month-old-cub 21 months ago for $250. 'These folks are going to have to prove he's a nuisance," he said. Tm going; to get a lawyer and fight this all the way.

Friends and relatives in Adelaide confirmed the story today. The accounts said a friend nailed up the box Oct. 17 in London and Spiers landed at Perth Oct 20 on an Air India flight, then hitchhiked 1,800 miles to Adelaide. "There was enough space between the planks to give me air and allow me to peep out," he said, y ' y Find Empty Crate : An Air India spokesman said an empty wooden crate big enough to hold a man was found today at the air cargo depot in Perth.

He didn't make the team and, because he was broke, seized on the idea of flying home in the crate. He gave notice to Air India that he wanted to consign a crate of plastic emulsion to a Perth firm.

"I wanted to yell at my countrymen but I dared not give myself up," Spiers said.

After resting awhile, he changed Into different clothes taken from a suitcase, cut his j way tnrough a wire mesn door and hitchhiked home to his wife and daughter in time to attend a brother's wedding. Spiers said the crate with him inside weighed about 500 pounds and the freight charge was about $950. That is $280 more than the passenger fare, but passengers can't travel C. O. D. "As far as I know, no freight payment has been collected on this consignment," said the Air India spokesman. ' First Air -Cooled Buses Bought by BY THOMAS BUCK Contracts totaling $322,010 were awarded yesterday by the Chicago transit authority for the city's first experiment with air-conditioned buses. ' Ten buses were ordered for the experiment, which will begin late next spring. Five were purchased from General Motors corporation, Pontiac, Mich., for $162,019, and five from the Flxible company, Loudonville, O., for $159,991. "We plan to use the 10 buses in express ' service to determine how much air-condition ing increases operating costs," explained George L. DeMent CTA chairman. "Such information is essential as a guideline for future bus orders." Adds $5,000 to Price DeMent said the air-conditioning equipment adds approximately $5,000 to tiie purchase price. He indicated, however, that , operating expenses may be a more important cost factor.-1 -'; , ' v "We win experiment ' first with the air-conditioned buses in the expressways and Lake Shore drive," DeMent said. 1 5 Are Killed as Air Force Tanker Falls Portsmouth, N.

Radio communication .was' lost with the 575-pound probe' shortly before midnight An official said a few minutes later that there was no chance to revive the craft's radio. "It looks like we've got a dead spacecraft," said a spokesman for ' the National Aeronautics and Space admin-' istration NASA, Mariner-3 was crippled from thestart of its flight in space by failure of its vital solar panels to deploy and soak up the sun's energy to re-charge the craft's battery. Fail to Unfold Panels While the craft's battery weakened, scientists tried tin- successfully to send emergency commands to the ship to unfold-the balky panels. Mariner-3 was the first of two identical ships in a 112 million dollar program de- -signed to reveal some of the . mysteries of Mars. Both Mariners were rigged to take 22 pictures of the Martian surface. ' The second launch is expected; before Dec. 2. t - The spacecraft, when it was- launched today atop a 104-foot Atlas-Agena rocket, appeared. ; to be following its assigned -path. It was almost an hour before tracking data began to turn up possible troubles. NASA said data radioed back, from the probe indicated it did not , receive the precise 25,600 -mile-an-hour kick needed to send it on its curving 350-miI-lion-mile path to Mars. 4 Seconds Short Spokesmen said the craft's Agena second stage, a newly modified model using an untested system designed to give it longer burning time, appeared to have stopped four seconds too soon. Mariner's four solar panels were to unfold in space about an hour after launching. NASA four hours later said there were no indications that the panels had deployed. Before the launch, "Project Manager Jack N. James said the odds for one partial success in both shots were 50-50. NASA said the mission was the most difficult yet attempted. : The' United States tried a twin-launch plan for its Mariner probes to Venus two years' ago," and the planning paid off. The first Mariner failed during launch,, but Mariner II scored the world's first planetary success. ( . .' 1 .
