MILKS ' 'HAVANA (AP) - Prime 'Minister Fidel Castro's government lias announced new .financial restrictions that might affect the departure of American residents from Cuba. The latest. 'measure • prohibits airlines and travel agencies from selling tickets ^ for trips abroad without prior approval of the Cuban Currency Stabilization Fund. U.S. Embassy officials said "Saturday they are studying the'mea- sure to determine if it -might be used to prevent the departure ;of any American national who 'desires to leave the island-but lacks a valid ticket. With the near rupture of U.S..Cuban relations, departure procedures already have became an agonizing experience for Americans. Despite Castro's assurances that U.S. citizens with clean consciences have nothing to fear from his regime, Americans usually approach their departure with considerable misgivings because of the frequent harassment of travelers. -Neither they nor those who see them off^ breathe easily until the departing planes are well on their way to the United States. Nobody Excited • But there has been nothing approaching panic in the exodus of Americans sincu a State Department annoncement advising that Cuba is an unsafe place for U.S. citizens. In another development, the government-controlled Radio Voz announced that a firing squad executed Robert Cruz Alfonso for the attempted assassination of Jose. Pardo Llada, anti-U.S. radio commentator and a close associate of Castro. Pardo excaped injury when his auto was sprayed with machine gun bullets last July 9. A companion suffered neck wounds. A secret military tribunal that ordered Cruz Alfonso shot handed out prison sentences ranging from 10 to 30 years to 11 persons charged with participating the plot. FOUR CHARGED Arrests reported by Trooper Glen Hosier yesterday were: Alfred Foster, 32, of 212 Tanguy, 75 on SR 25 north; Richard -Carr, 17, of 812 High st., clocked at 85 on SR 29; Robert Zimmerman, 21, of 616 Nineteenth, 50 on Burlington ave.; Michael Reddington, Indianapolis, improper pass on SR 25 north.

(UPI Telephoto) Katanga Air Force Fights ELISABETHVILLE, Katanga (AP)—Katanga's infant air force flew in anger for the first time Saturday during a clash between rebel Baluba tribesmen and the Katanga gendarmerie which left 20 reported dead. The clash occurred near Mitwaba, in eastern Katanga, following a predawn iambush of a Katanga army patrol. Fierce fighting raged before the rebels withdrew, leaving their dead behind. In Elisabethville, agovernmeht spokesman said the Katanga air force, which consists of a handful of light planes piloted by Belgians, was "mobilized" during the action. He declined to say what part the air force played but it was unlikely they bombed the rebels. .Apparently the planes merely "buzzed" the fight scene, since they are not fitted .with Thomson's Lead Is Cut Two Strokes SYDNEY (AP)—Australia's Peter Thomson's lead Saturday was cut to two -strokes by South African Gary Player in the International Marathon Golf Tournament; In the eighth round at Aollon- gong, Thomson shot a. two over par 72, Player and Canada's Stan Leonard each had 71 and American Mike - Souchak of Durham, N.C., 73.

In southeastern France, hit by torrential rains, an elderly woman was drowned and two other persons were feared dead. One death was reported in southern England. ' The floods in both countries followed a day and night of cloudbursts and steady downpours which turned rivers and streams into angry torrents. Many road and rail lines were cut, homes were flooded and families marooned or forced to flee. In some places, whole villages were cut off temporarily. Baby Spends A Night Out GERMANTOWN, Wis. (AP)Peter Martin, 2, napped as usual in his own bed Saturday afternoon, none the worse for having spent .Friday night alone and cold in an alfalfa field only a short distance from the home he couldn't find. It was after his nap ' Friday that Peter, dressed \yarmly by his mother, Mrs. Caflton Martin, went out to- play. He wandered away into the brush-covered lowlands surrounding his parents' home about 12 miles north of Milwaukee. He was found unharmed shortly after 9 o'clock Saturday morning by the two-man crew "of a Wisconsin National Guard helicopter called in to aid the search which had been joined by hundreds, both official and volunteer. As the helicopter landed in the yard, the gathered crowd cheered when they spotted the boy. • "I tell you there were a lot of people prayed last night that didn't know what praying was," said a woman in the crowd. Last Time Today GE Union Goes Out In Night NEW YORK (AP)-The .giant General Electric Co. and its largest employe union girded Saturday for a midnight strike, across the nation, thrusting aside government mediation pleas in stormy last-minute talks.' The strike was called by the International Union of Electrical Workers (IUE) after failure to reach a new contract with GE in six weeks of negotiations. The IOE represents some 70,000 GE employes in plants . around^ the country. The strike was certain to cur- fail a large portion of GE's production but there was no way of assessing its over-all effects at the Outset. Both sides had made overtures toward continuing negotiations without a walkout immediately, but could not agree on terms. Federal mediators had worked I feverishly toward such a goal when it became plain the parties were nowhere near agreement on a contract. A-. final negotiation session opened in bitter fashion at .midmorning Saturday. Within ..minutes, reporters could hear loud, angry voices within the conference room. After the meeting, negotiators reported "no progress" was made. The strike was not unanimously favored by IUE locals in GE plants but all indicated they would 50 along with the decision of the majority. The union and company . are seeking to write a contract to replace a five-year agreement which expired at midnight Friday night. Under this, the union said, production workers received average pay of $2.30 to J2.40 an hour. GE offered a three-year contract providing a 3 per cent wage increase on the signing of a -new pact and 4 per cent more on April 2, 1962. But it called for elimination of a cost-of-living escalator clause and a company-controlled program tor workers whose jobs are eliminated. The union demanded 3V4 per cent pay boosts during each year of the new contract, a union shop and other benefits. GE has 167' plants in 133 cities. A company spokesman said the IUE represents most of the workers in about 50* of them, including the largest installations. Other plants are either nonunion or multiunion. Corns Stolen From Weslside Laundry Someone managed to trip two coin changers at the Sunbrite automatic laundry on West Broadway last evening. The loot probably could total $35 to ?40, according to Dewey Schmidt, proprietor. The same type larceny occurred at the southside laundromat last week. A device apparently, is used to release the change in the chutes. Police quickly checked other laundromats after the report last night, but they apparently had not been visited by .the thief. SYRACUSE BY (Continued from Page 1) back to life after beating West Virginia in its opener, went down to its second straight setback. Duke did the job this time, 20-7. A sleeping giant showed signs of waking up. Minnesota, which wound up at the bottom of the Big Ten last year, crushed Indiana-, 42-0, for its second triumph without defeat. That matched the Gophers' entire victory output of last season. LOGANSPORT DRIVE-IN Optn «:4S—Jj'orti 7:10 TONIGHT TWO FEATURE) Arguments At Atomic Talks VIENNA, Austria (AP) - The International Atomic Energy Agency Saturday night concluded its two-week conference after a flareup over Iwo Communist proposals. " Tempers grew short as the con ference^went into overtime to discuss a' Czechoslovak proposal to give consultative status to the Communist-tinged World Federation of Trade Unions. After heated East - West ex changes the Czechoslovak move was rejected 43-17 with six abstentions.. • Earlier Saturday, the conference voted down 41-18 with three abstentions a Polish resolution to appeal to the Geneva nuclear test-ban meeting to conclude an early agreement. Supporting the Polish move was India and several other African-Asian countries. The other delegations did not deny the need of atomic disarmament',^ but said it was not within the competence of the IAEA, an atoms-for-peace agency. The conference closed with an East-West split over nuclear inspection and with'a warning from some African-Asian member countries that they would seekjiuclear help from'Moscow. The Western-sponsored inspection plan was designed" as a safeguard against military use of nuclear fuels 'and reactors supplied to the countries under the agency program. It was adopted by 43 of the 74 IAEA members Friday, marking a defeat for the Communist bloc, whiclf opposed the plan as a Western attempt to spy on the nuclear secrets of other nations. Other opponents of the plan such as India, the United Arab Republic,' Iraq, Indonesia and Cuba opposed inspection as an infringement of national sovereignty. Flicker Of t Hope To End Congo Chaos By DAVE MASON LEOPOLDVILLE, the Congo (AP)—A flicker of hope appeared in the Congo chaos Saturday as a small and devoted group of College graduates technicians slowly began to turn the msted wheels of government. Political strife, for the moment at least, has been reduced to a weakening barrage of largely ineffective public declarations. A highly placed Western diplomat who has been in the Congo since it became independent June 30 said "The situation seems to have improved, and I am more optimistic for the future." United Nations officials, working overtime to prevent the Congo's panorama of disaster from enlarging, reported relative calm throughout the new republic this week. There were scattered incidents of unrest in Congolese army due to pay delays. But U. N. officials said they were able to quiet the situation with stopgap pay envelopes for the troops. A considerable number of Belgian teachers, missionaries and technicians are returning to the Congo after having been driven out by the Congolese when independence was proclaimed. The Belgians often had to wait hours at airports for clearance by Congolese immigration authorities but :hat appeared to be the worst of their difficulties. The political wafers were as muddy as ever and potentially dangerous. But for the present none of the opposing factions was making a serious effort to impose tself on another with guns or poisoned arrows. U.S. Wins World Amateur Golf As Nicklaus Gets 68 ARDMORE, Pa. (AP) - The United States with amazing Jack Nicklaus contributing his fourth straight subpar round, won the World Amateur Golf Team Championship Saturday by a whopping 42 strokes. Nicklaus, disdaining the fearsome reputation of the Merion Golf Club course in Saturday's windy, cool weather -just as he had on the first three days, fin- isheu with a 2-under-par 68 for a 72-hole total of 269. ( His score Saturday, with 75s by National Amateur champion Deane Beman and Philadelphia's 44-year-old Bill Hyndman, put to gether a three-man aggregate of 218 for the final round and a four- day total of 834. Only the best three scores of each four-man team each day are counted in the team scoring. Australia; the defending champion, finished second with an 876 while Great Britain-Ireland was third with 881. Australia won the inaugural world team title at St. Andrews, Scotland, two years ago, beating the U.S. in a playoff. Petite Efoile Runs Last Race For Aly LONDON (AP) — Petite Etoile, the greatest of 'the late Prince Aly Khan's race horses, has run her last race. Trainer Noel Murless announced Saturday that the 4-year-old filly is being retired to stud; Petite Etoile won more than $168,000 dollars during her career. Only two horses—Ballymoss and Tulyar—have won more prize money in Britain. Jim Packard, Midget Race Driver, Killed As His Car Does Flip FAIRFIELD, 111. (AP) — Jim Packard of Indianapolis, one of the top midget race drivers this season, was killed Saturday night when his midget racer flipped over in time trials for a 25-mile feature race here. Packard's car went out of. control and flipped end over end along the north turn of the one- mile dirt track. He was thrown from the car. The 29-year-old Packard was the fourth United States Auto Club big car driver killed since the 1960 Memorial Day 500-mile race at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Others were' Al Herman, Jimmy Bryan and Johnny Thomson. Packard won his first big car race in August, — the 100-miler at Springfield, HI. He was married and the father of one child.
