On this day In history: In 1777, Benedict Arnold defeated the British at Ridgefield, Conn. In 1822, Ulysses S. Grant, the nation's 18th president, was born. In 1882, Ralph Waldo Emerson, American essayist, poet, and philosopher, died. In 1897, the body of Ulysses S. Grant was removed to the tomb bearing his name. In 1906, the United States Steel Corporation started breaking ground along Lake Michigan to build a new town to be known as Gary, Ind. In 1960, a new South Korean president, Huh Chung, took office.

In the 12 hours before Castro announced the invasion on Apr. 17, trucks rolled through the streets of Havana packed with families dragged from their homes, eyewitnesses said. Latin Nations Bar Cuba From Board WASHINGTON (UPI) Latin American nations, stiffening their attitude toward Fidel Castro, decided Wednesday to bar the Cuban delegation from secret sessions of the Inter-American De fense board. A spokesman said the ban will last "during the duration of the present evident alliance of Cuba with the Soviet bloc." Observers said it was one of the strongest Latin American joint actions toward the Castro regime since the crisis arose over Castro's Communist ties. The Inter-American Defense board is composed of military representatives from the hemis pheric nations. It meets in Washington twice a month to discuss hemispheric defense plans. In addition it exchanges technical information on the state of individual armies. The panorama of this attack Associated Press Science Writer AND OPINION page Sunday.

The doctor added: "With a full knowledge of his condition in the 'past months, Gary's spirit is good and his courage is a source of inspiration to his family and friends." Dr. Rexford Kannamer said Cooper, 59, underwent surgery in 1960 for carcinoma of the colon. "Gary's present condition is not such that daily medical bulletins will be issued," he added. The family announced last week that Cooper was gravelv ill. but did not disclose the ailment. Friends, however, said it was can- leer. Cooper has been taking cobalt radiation treatments at home.

For Common Criminals Challe, 55, one-time commander of NATO forces for central Europe, returned ia civilian clothes and was placed in Sante prison, a greywalied institution for common criminals. Moslem terrorists are guillotined in its courtyard across the street from a row of slums. Challe, who was not even al lowed the dignity of a military prison, was flown back by military plane. As he reached the bot tom step of the plane's ramp while alighting he stumbled and fell heavily on his face, dropping the heavy suitcase no one had offered to carry. Several policemen rushed for ward to the insurrection leader and helped him to his feet. They treated him for cuts about the face, thrust him into a black sedan and raced off to the Sante prison not far from Notre Dame Cathedral. He was charged by Judge Henri Theret, the magistrate ordered to investigate the Algiers plot against France. The official charge was 'plotting against state authority' and national integrity." The penalty can be life imprisonment or death. Though retired before the revolt and since stripped of his military honors he will fried by a military tribunal which can order death by firing squad. The guillo tine is for civilian criminals. Theret also issued arrest war rants for Gen. Raoul Salan and six other revolt leaders. Others Named The others were Gens. Andre- Marie Zelkr and Edmond Jou-haud who followed Challe and Salan; Gen. Jean Gardo who seized Oran, and Cols. Yves God-ard, Charles Lacheroy, and Lu- cien Argoud. A handful of minor revolution aries fled to Gibraltar. In the background was the an gry De Gaulle of the stern voice who pledged through aides to take every measure necessary to wipe France and Algeria clean of any and all disloyal elements and said he would do so "with no pity, no mercy." De Gaulle restored legal au thority throughout Algeria. Dele gate Jean Morin, freed Tuesday night from his paratroop captors, was back at his desk at the ad ministration headquarters where the insurgent generals reigned for four days. With him were French minister for Algerian affairs Louis Joxe and Gen. Jean Olie, French chief of general staff sent to Algeria as supreme commander at the out set of the challenge to his power, They, too, were reported carrying out a massive crackdown on insurgent army officers. Throughout Paris itself after three nights of invasion scares, Parisians breathed a sigh of re lief that there was no longer any need to face the moral problem of Frenchman fighting Frenchman. Strong forces of armed police and riot squads still surrounded stra tegic areas. 400 Troops Missing From Algiers Base ALGIERS, Thursday (UPI) -i Four hundred insurgent paratroopers were reported missing from their base today and informed sources said three of the generals who led the uprising against President Charles de Gaulle may be with them. There was speculation the force may have taken to the hills to conduct a guerrilla campaign aeainst the French army. Army spokesmen refused all comment on the paratroopers The sources said, however, that the force was presumed heading for the hill country outside the city. The three generals who escaped capture at the end of the upris ing early Wednesday have not been seen since. They are Raoul Salan, Edmond Jouhaud, and Andre-Marie Zeller.

Otto Driewer, Oregon, the cemetery caretaker, found the desecrated grave about 10 a. Wednesday just a city block's length from Highway 14 where the cemetery is located at Ore gon's north limits. A spade stolen from the care taker's shed had been used to exhume the coffin; the casket and its wooden covering had been pried open, and the body of the 7-day-old baby was found in burial wrappings strewn at the bottom of the grave. Undersheriff Jack Leslie said the body, buried Feb. 8, had not been harmed, nor had anything been stolen from the casket. In vestigation Wednesday failed to disclose any reason for the dese cration, he said. A check with officials at Wau- pun State prison and at the state prison farm near Oregon showed that no known mentally deranged convicts are missing, Leslie said.
