No Russian Publicity On KY Illness Soviets Give Little Mention Of Flu Attack By ALINE MOSBV United Praia International MOSCOW—UiPI—Premier Nikita Khrushchev's illness . which forced sudden postponement . of his visit to France created scarcely a ripple ot£ excitement today in .Russia. Details of the flu attack were kept secret. 'A Ta?s news agency announcement today . said Khrushchev would visit France from March 23 until April 3, an indication he was recovering.. It made no mention of his illness. In other countries a .premier's iUness regarded as the biggest news ol the hour but Khrushchev drew only one paragraph, on the front page of the Communist Party, newspaper Pravda. Even this was unusual. There was no indication whether .Khrushchev, who will be 66 next month, was under medical care at his Moscow home, at some, sunny resort town on the Black Sea, in a clinic or at his country home. No medical touljo- tiiis were expected. President Eisenhower's various illnesses brought regular bulletins on everything from his temperature to his blood pressure. The page one paragraph on Khrushchev was unusual because government leaders' personal lives are tradiitionally not covered in this country. Only Brief Note The brief dispatch merely quoted the Tass news agency announcement that disclosed he was too ill to go to France on a visit that was to. have begun Tuesday. The only other mention in Pravda about Khrushchev's illness was in a dispatch from thq paper's Paris correspondent assuring readers, "Parisians are still looking- forward to the arrival of Khrushchev. . .and everyone \vishes_him a speedy, recovery." """ "~ "".'. . The Paris dispatch detailed how newspapers, radio and television in Paris were devoted to the Khrushchev visit and that the French government was receiving letters from ordinary citizens inviting .Khrushchev .to their homes. But it added no details of the illness. In fact Hie Communist newspaper was even tare of the usual French - Soviet, friendship stories, perhaps indicating the newspaper had not prepared any and was caught by (lie postponement with no backlog.

' Castro Makes Bitter Speech Against U.S. Cubans Told They Must Tighten Belts To Stop Aggressors By MARTIN P. HOUSEMAN' United Press international HAVANA. (UPD—Premier Fidel Castro delivered a hitter harangue against the United States today and told Cubans they would have to prepare themselves for a "long struggle" against economic subversion and "aggression from abroad." The premier told his countrymen they must tighten their belts and get used to the idea of spending millions of dollars on arms to save Cuba from the "powerful interests" threatening it. Comparing Cuba with the Algerian nationalists in their five- year-old war against the French, the premier declared: "For those interested in knowing, we can say we have more arms than the Algerian patriots." Rifle-National Symbol The national symbol of Cuba at this moment, he said, should be "a man working with a rifle at his side. We can neither abandon the rifle nor our work." Castro spoke over television for 2 hours and 15 minutes in the early morning hours following a daylong patriotic rally marked by new denunciations of the United States and the arrest of three Oklahomans who had been visiting Havana. John Taylor, a legislative candidate from Stillwater; Roger Sharp, news director of television station KOTV in Tulsa, and Ralph Sanders, also of Tulsa, were seized by revolutionary authorities and questioned briefly before being released with permission to return to the United States. Repeats Same Charges Taylor and.Sharp both had been arrested previously on Friday and later released. In each incident, the arrests occurred after they were discovered taking photographs in the government's Agrarian Reform Institute and on the street. ' : Castro's speech repeated many, of the same charges he made last week in indirectly accusing U.S. officials' of 'plotting the sabotage of a French munitions ship in Havana harbor. As last week, he referred only to "powerful interests", but there was no doubt he meant the United States..

Army "weasels" cut through the drifts to evacuate an elderly, ailing man near West Jefferson, N.C., and. soldiers helped a doctor reach a pregnant woman in Roaring Forks; 22 miles from West Jefferson. Meanwhile, helicopters dropped emergency fuel, food and medical packages to the stranded families, many of them slowly starving since their food ran put last week.

Justice Claims Care Essential In Capital Cases HARTFORD, Conn. '(UPD — Chief Justice Raymond E. Baldwin said today he's opposed to a legislative proposal to shorten the time between the sentencing and the execution of convicted slayers. Baldwin told a legislative subcommittee "This is a difficult thing to handle by legislative enactment It's rare that one crime is like another. There are always new questions of law involved." Baldwin assured the lawmakers that "the courts are anxious to dispose of Ihese matters as last as we can, and we're making progress in that direction." But he said that courts musi "lean over backwards" to. avoic the "horrible mistake of executing an innocent man." Connecticut has four men in the death row—they've been there as long as seven years—but Baldwir says the slate handles its capita 1 cases as expeditiuosly as mos other states.
