The revolutionary government said the four being e.xpelled and the three jailed for trial on spy charges were sent to Cuba by the United States government to spy on the Chinese Communist New China News Agency. Cuba said at least two of the seven were U. S. Embassy em­ ployes and that the others were in close contact with the embassy. It said "several" of them were Italian-bom U.S. citizens and that the Nm-dios were dance teachers at the Libre and Riviera Hotels. It said they used "well hidden small microiAones only as thick as a needle connected by fine wires with two transmitters installed in a bathroom medicine cabinet" and that the transmitters could be picked up outside the building by an esnbas^ employe. A Cuban note to the embassy said Ambassador Bonsai would be restricted to the Vedado District where the embassy is located while Premier Fidel Castro is in New York for the United Nations General Assembly Session. Castro has been restricted to Manhattan Island where Vy. headquarters are located. He is now expected to fly to New York Sunday. Foreign Minister Raul Roa said in a formal note that Bonsai would be allowed cmly to move back and forth from the embassy to his residence.

Sexual Perverts Plague National Security Agency WASHINGTON (UPI)-A House investigator says the top-secret National Security Agency (NSA) admits sexual per\-ersion among its employes is a "very serious problem" and is considering setting up a psychiatric clinic to to deal with the matter. Chairman Francis E. Walter, D-Pa., made the statement Friday after his House Committee on Un-American Activities concluded the first day of its dosed- door investigation into the defection to Russia of NSA code clerks Bemon F. Mitchell and William H. Martin. The pand put off further hearings for at least two weeks. A House armed senices subcommittee which also is investigating the defection called Central Intel ligence Agency officials to a hearing Monday on general U.S. intelligence activities. Walter said that at the request of NSA officials, a psychiatrist had conferred with "medical peo- plt" about the "possibility of erecting a clinic in the depart- ment, because perversion was quite a problem in the NSA and they didn't know what to do about it" He identified the psychiatrist as Dr. Clarence Schilt of nearby Silver Spring. Md., who previously told the conunittee that Mitchell had ctmsulted with him on three occasions about his athtism. averaon to his family and sexual problems. Walter quoted Schilt as describing MitcheU as "definitely" a homosexual The Defense Department has said Mitdidl admitted abnormal sex practices in lus teens. But the department said be had not engaged in such practices for many years before apfdying for an NSA job and officials did not consider the teen-age activities grounds for denying him employment. Walter also said that one of the turncoats at one time belonged tc a group Usted as subversive by the attorney general's office. He decUned to name the maq or identify the organization.

Capt. James .Martin, the pilot who charged his British plane was "buzzed" Friday, brought in an other plane today—although he had said following the incident that his next trip to Berlin would be "by bicycle." Martin filed a protest with the four-power Beriin air safety cen ter Friday shortly after he landed at West Berlin's Tempelhof Air field. He said he was flymg 36 pas sengers from Innsbruck, Austria, to West Berlin, and was over the Soviet Zone when a Russian plane veered toward his aircraft. Although it was first thought to be an accident. Martin insisted it was a deliberate buzzing. He said it was the third time his plane had been buzzed in recent weeks. Martin said he had some narrow escapes in the past, but "today was too close for comfort. Next time I vvill travel to Berlin by bicycle. I really was shaken up." The Communist harassment came shortly after West Berlin .Mayor Willy Brandt warned the Reds agaln.^t interfering with air traffic to the Communist-encircled city. Maj. Gen. N. F. Zaharov, Berlin's Soviet commandant, warned the Allies against "misusing' the air corridors in flying undesirable Western Germans into Berlin.

But, .Mrs. Bennett said, she had not heard from them since she received a letter from her husband, dated Aug. 19, and postmarked from the village of Via- nitsa in the Ukraine. •I don't knam what's happened to them and I'm very much concerned." she said. In the letter Bennett wrote of having "a good time." but was "looking forward to coming home," his wife said. Entered in July The two men, both of whom majored in Russian studies in college, entered the Soviet Union on tourist visas at Helsinki, Finland, last July 26. Kaminsky, described by one of his professors^ as a severe critic of the Soviet Union, previously had visited .Moscow when he worked at the General Jlotors display at the American exhibition there during the summer of 1939. Tlie two men entered Russia as tourists in a trip arranged by Amerpol Enterprises in Detroit. Mrs. Bennett said she told the U.S. State Department last week that her husband and Kaminsky were overdue. A spokesman said tiiat Amerpol had been unable to locate them.

Brandler already had ruled on the defendant's sanity. Prosecutor Marshall Sehulman .said .Monk showed no remorse for his crimes, including molestation of a young woman in the presence of her 3-year^)ld son.

U.N. Assembly Called Mo Emergency Session UNITED NA -nONS, N.Y. (UPI) —The Security Council, on the motion of the United States, early today summoned the General Assembly to an emergency session beginning tonight on the Congo crisis. The veto-free 82-nation assembly meets at 8 p.m., EDT. Russia.-which bitterly protested the calling of the assembly, paved the way for the action by vetoing a small-power resolution aimed at heading off a showdown between the United States and the Soviet Union in the world parliament. The move was interpreted as giving the United States an edge in the propaganda circus Russia set up by summoning Communist and neutralist heads of government to the regular assembly session which starts next Tuesday. Observers pointed, out that the United Stotes vvill'be able to indict Russia for its effort to undermine the U.N. effort in the| Congo before the arrival of Soviet Premier Nikita S. Khrushchev, two days away on the Soviet hner Baltika. This was calculated to deflate Russia's announced plans to tr>- to blame the United States in the assembly for espionage fligh(s and the failure of disarmament negotiations as well as last May's summit conference. Soviet Deputy Foreign Minister Valerian A. Zorin charged the emergency assembly session was "illegal." It was called under the Ache- son-Dtilles "uniting for peace" resolution of 1950. which authorizes the calling of an emergency assembly session by the vote ol any .seven members of the council—with the veto inoperative — whenever council action is blocked by the veto. Russia did not vote for that assembly resolDtion and has been calling it illegal for the past 10 years. Zorin, using the Soviet veto power for the 90th time in the U.N.'s 15-year history, killed an effort by which Ceylon and Tunisia had hoped to avert a power struggle in connection with the Congo. Eight Back Resolution Argentina, Ceylon, China, Ecuador, Italy, Tunisia, Britain and the United States voted for the resolution. Russia and Poland voted against it France, resenting attacks on its Belgian ally in the two-month Congo debate, abstained as it has done on previous resolutions. Ambassador James J. Wadsworth, who will lead the U.S. delegation to the emergency assem bly. made the motion for the special session immediately after Zorin cast his veto. It was possible that Khrushchev might get in on the .special session, which is sure to continue at least through Monday. The Bal­ tika was due to dock in New York .Monday morning, and there was nothing to prevent Khrushchev from taking floor command of the Russian delegation if he chose to do so. Tlie small-power resolution vetoed by Zorin was close to a similar measure, sponsored by the United States, which gave full backing to Secretary General Dag Hammarskjold and called for an end to military aid to the Congo outside the United Nations such as Russia had been supplying to leftist Premier Patrice Lumumba President To Golf, Then Work On U.N. Speech THURMONT, Md. (UPI)—President Eisenhower planned an early morning round of golf today before going into solitude to work on his speech to the U.N. General Assembly next week. The Chief Executive was reported to want to work alone on the address he will deliver to the assembly Thursday, the day before Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev speaks. Eisenhower took no administration officials to his Camp David retreat in Maryland's Catoctin Mountains to help him with the speech, probably his last to the worid organization. Several personal friends, whose names were not disclosed, were invited to join Eisenhower at the hideaway. The President was expected to unveil a far-reaching plan for U.N. aerial inspection to guard against surprise attacks. He also may propose a "food for peace" program in which nations with farm surpluses would help feed the masses of underdeveloped countries. Eisenhower motored to his rustic mountain lodge Friday from Walter Reed Army Hospital in Washington where he underwent the first part of his annual physical examination. Doctors said the President's health continued to be "excellent." Rumor May Have Come From Enemies Soviet Embassy Hauls Down Flag 10 Minutes Before Deadline LEOPOLDVU.LE. The Congo (UPI 1— Premier Patrice Lumumba "s lipped away" from his United .\ations protectors today and rumo'-s swept Leopoldville that he had been shot and killed while trving to pass a roadblock about 30 miles from the capital. The Lumumba report came as the Soviet Embassy hauled down its flag at 11:50 a.m. in a humiliating end of relations with the Congo Republic. The flag came down 10 minutes before the deadline imposed by Col. Joseph Mobutu who seized power earlier this week. Mobuto had ordered the Soviet, Czechoslgvakian and "other socialist" embassies here to close and demanded the staffs and their technicians leave the country inv" mediately. It appeared his orders were being obeyed. Half an hour later Soviet Ambassador Mikhail D. Yakovlev and the Czech ambassador boarded Ilyushin planes and took of! for an unknown destination, probably Russia and Czechoslovakia. The planes were ones given to Lumumba by the Soviet last month. Congolese troops in front of the Russian Embassy tried to stop Yakovlev and one officer tore open the door and attempted to force the Russian ambassador out. Yakovlev frantically shouted ".Vo, no. Kasavubu! Kasavubu:" and a Ghanaian officer rushed up, swept aside the Congolese officer and permitted the Russian to pass. Doors CloM •The Czech Embassy had shut its doors after a night in which diplomats burned secret papers in the garden. Leopoldville has been filled with rumor after rumor since Mobutu deposed Lumumba and it was possible the assassination report had been spread by his enemies. Mutinous Congolese troopg had tried to lynch him on two occasions Thur.iday. Diplomatic sources believed ho would try to flee to Stanleyville, the center of his political strength but the rumors today said he had been captured at a road block and shot. The U.N. command was trying to check the rumors but without success. Colonel Mobutu said he had not heard the rumors of Lumumba'i death but that he doubted them. Nixon's Mother Speaks S.AN DIEGO (UPD—Mrs. Hannah Xi.xon, mother of Vice President Richard M. Nixon, will speak at a Youth for Christ rally at 7:30 p.m. tonight in the First Presbj-terian Church. Parties Disagree On Who is Keeping Religious issue Aiive WASHLNGTON (UPI) - Democrats and Republicans were in sharp disagreement today over who is keepmg alive the issue of John F. Kennedy's Roman Catholic faith. Republican Sen. Barry Goldwater, Ariz., accused the Democratic presidential nominee of exploiting the issue in an effort-to win votes. Massachusetts Republican Chairman Daniel E. McLean pointed to Democrats in the South as the source of anti-Catholic propaganda. But Democratic National Chairman Henry M. Jackson said Republican leaders had made anti- .Catholic atUcks on Kennedy. He jsajd GOP presidential candidate Richard M. Nixon could banish the religious issue by repudiating these leaders. Goldwater told a news conference in Birmingham, Ala., Friday, "If Jack Kennedy would shut up about it (the religious issue), it would die dovm." "The Mly time I hear anything about it is when Kennedy speaks," (joldwater said. McLean, a C«tholie, told reporters in Boston that all anti-Catholic it was "time to blow the whistle on those who would subvert the Constitution" by trying to establish a religious test for public office. Jtrfmson told a news conference here the religious issue was "backfiring" against the Republicans. He urged Nixon to repudiate any support based on opposition to Keuiedy's religion. He said he accepted Nixon's statement that the religious issue does not belong literature was originatmg "in the! in the campaign. South among Democrats." He told a TV audience eariier he had "pnor that Democrats were circulating rehgious propaganda against Kennedy. Democratic vice presidential Democratic Rep. Emanuel Cei ler, N.Y., also urged RepuWicans to repudiate a statement by a group of 150 Protestant ministers and laymen questioning Kennedy's ability to withstand pressure from candidate L)-ndon B. Johnson saii^ his church if dected ];vesidenL Attempt To Recover Space Capsule Fails HONOLULU (LTD — A frus- (rating attempt to recover for the third consecutive time a 39-inch, 300-pound space capsule, launched by Discoverer XV, was abandoned by the Air Force Friday night. Thft capsule was "assumed" to have sunk in rough seas about 1.000 miles south of here. Air Force officials reported. Discoverer XV's capsule contained no life — only instruments —and it appeared improbable that the Air Force would go ahead with plans to send a monkey into orbit before Discoverer X\1I, despite previous announcements. Two dogs and other life already have been returned from an orbiting space vehicle sent aloft by Russia. Authorities called off the .search for the capsule shortly after midnight EDT and ordered the recovery ship back to regular duty. The capsule, ejected Wednesday from the polar orbiting Discoverer satellite, first was presumed lost when it veered 1.006 miles from the target area In the Pacific Ocean. That night the Air Force announced jubilantly that two plane crews sighted the capsule bobbing in the ocean near Christmas Island. Bearing instruments aimed at helping the United States put a man into space, the cap.<:ule was designed to stay afloat for 36-13 hours. Planes hovered overhead for some 20 iMurs with airmen trying to keep the capsule m sight Rough seas caused' them to lose it. Discoverer XV was launched Tuesday from Vandenberg Air Force Base, Calif. The 19-foot Discoverer, a forerunner of the Midas and Samos satellite series, ejected the capsule as it passed over Alaska. Two previous polar orbiting Discoverer capsules were recovered last August, one from the water and the other snatched from the air by 4 idane.
