(AP) — Vice President Richard M. Nixon dips into the South today afloat a cloud of enthusiasm steamed up by the presidential campaign's biggest turnout in Philadelphia Wednesday night. The Republican presidential nominee displayed new confidence in the outcome of his contest with his Democratic opponent, Sen. John F. Kennedy of Massachusetts, as he winged into the doubtful border stale of Tennessee. Here he had a date at Memorial Square before taking off for Cleveland, Ohio. There Kennedy's street crowds of 250,000 had been tops until Nixon drew somewhere around a police-estimated 500,000 in Philadelphia, which used to be Republican but has been Democratic in recent years.

Barometer, 30.03 and HAVANA (AP)—A platoon-sized invasion force from Ihe United States has landed in east Cuba and headed info the mountains after suffering three casualties in a brush with militiamen, the Armed Forces M i n islry announced today. A ministry communique said the landing was made by 27 men, including three Americans, "at dawn yesterday" on a bay midway between the towns of Baracoa nnd Moa, the site of a nationalized American mining company. The area is in Oriente Province, the revolutionary stamping grounds of Prime .Minister Fidel Castro. The communique was undated, and it was not specified whether the reported landing was Tuesday or Wednesday. The battle apparently occurred ? few hours after the force touched shore. The commander of the invasion lorce was killed and two of the men—one wounded — were captured, the ministry said. The commander was identified as Armentino Feria, a follower of Cuban ex-Sen. Rolando Masferrer. Masferrer, a wealthy backer of the deposed President Fulgencio Batista, is a refugee in the United States- The two dozen men who eluded the militiamen were reported to have taken 50 Cuban farmers as hostages and reached an area called Nuevo Laredo with Castro forces in pursuit. Reports circulated in Santiago, the provincial capital about 90 miles southwest of the landing area, that the invasion and subsequent had batlle occurred "some days ago." The remainder of the invading various documents, all of which were seized by the militiamen. "The remainder of the group cannot escape the revolutionary army and loyal militiamen," the communiquue said. "Our government is fully aware of this open activity by attempting which imperialism is to promote counterrevolutionary activity and acts of terrorism." For months Castro has been predicting an invasion. This incident, as outlined by the Armed Forces Ministry, appears to be the first confirmation that opposition forces are ready to move men into Cuba to assist the insurgents already fighting in the Escambray Mountains in the center of the island. Mr. K Slows Down Pace NEW YORK (AP) —Soviet Premier Khrushchev is finally beginning io slow down after waging a day-and night propaganda offensive against the West for the past 17 eventful days. The 66-yef -old Soviet premier seems to havp lost some of the bouncy pep that has made him communism's No. 1 salesman. He is grimly pressing ahead with his one-man crusade. But the pace is beginning to tell on even his robust physique. Wednesday night for the first IN GUERILLA WARFARE L-Americans Said Trained in Cuba made up in stamping enthusiasm what it lacked in numbers. There is no denying, however, that Nixon had scored a 10-strike in Pennsylvania, with its 32 electoral votes. On the more than 12-mile ride from Ihe airport, where he 'landed in the late afternoon, the Republican presidential nominee was seen by more people than have turned out any time previously in the campaign. Not all of them were supporters. There were many Kennedy- Johnson signs and many shouts from the opposition ticket. But w hen his motorcade reached a spot near Ihe University of Pennsylvania, surging students stopped it by main force. While a cheer leader swung precariously from atop a rcd-and- green flashing traffic signal, Nixon talked some of the language the .students seemed to understand. Before him were signs demanding to know "Where's Checkers?" This was the clog he mentioned on a broadcast in 1952 when he defended, as the vice presidential nominee, his acceptance as a senator of an S18.000 expense fund. But thn Philadelphia c r owds were generally enthusiastic for him. The Pennsylvania welcome was doubly satisfactory to the vice president after a day in New York that found some of those who listened to his standard campaign speech not so responsive as they have been elsewhere. campaign today to build a peace bridge between the world's Iwo greatest powers. The Communist bloc in the U.N. General Assembly, at the same time, reacted exuberantly to the developments, hailing the neutralist clash with the United States as a clear victory for Premier Khrushchev. As one Communist representative put it, the Soviet premier "did not even have to lift a finger" to achieve it. U.

WASHINGTON (AP)— A former chief of Cuban Prime Minister Fidel Castro's parachute troops says Latin Americans have been trained in -uba in guerrilla warfare. The testimony was given to the Senate Internal Security subcom- mi'tte by Capt. Alfonso Manuel Rojo Roche, also known as Manuel Rojo del Rio.

But American diplomats conceded the United States may have sustained damage as a result of the neutralist struggle. Both Eisenhower and Khrushchev had made cle-ar they did not want to meet, but the Communists simply stood from voting States led the strategy to defeat the neutralists' bid. The neutralists finally gave up the struggle for their five-nation U. S.-Sovict summit proposal after the Assembly, at U.

But there was no one-sided majority such as the United States had enjoyed on other issues. one U. S. Army uniform, and Central and South American nations.

With only one more report meeting remaining in the drive toward a §74,850 goal, the campaign lias eased to the 63 per cent mark of 547,570. Only a scant number of workers attended the Thursday morning report meeting in the Texas Power and Light Company conference room. A total of §3,418.67 in additional gifts was reported. Drive Chairman Bob Wats o n said following the meeting lhat the drive is falling behind. "The only way we are going to make Ihe drive a success is to work the cards."

The death toll in Wednesday night's accident was believed Ihe largest ever in a single Tennessee traffic accident.

He was ~.3ked if these men, after finishing the training courses, returned to their own countries. "Most of them, yes," he replied. Roche named Gen. Alberto; Bayo as author of a manual on guerrilla tactics used by the Cuban armed fore : and as director general and instructor in the of revolutionary traininf. He said that Raul Castro, Fidel's brother and commander in chief of the Cuban revolutionary forces, ir the nominal boss of the training school but testified that Ernesto Guevan, president of the National Bank of Cuba, actually controls it. Raul Caslro, Guevara and Bayo were among about a score of Fide' Castro's fellow rebels whom Roche named ss Communists. Roche is a 44-year-old Argen- tinian who joined up with the Castro forces after flying arms to them from Costa Rica in March 1958. He told of overhearing a conversation in which he quoted Raul Castro as saying: "Now we are going against Santo Domingo. Next against all the dictators in Latin America. And ultimately against the United States." "Did Raul say, 'We mir' convince the Latin-American countries that the United States is the chief enemy'?" Roche was asked. "Yes," the witness replied. He added that Guevara, who was present, agreed. time since arriving here he showed definite signs of being tired. He cracked fewer jokes, shook fewer hands and bragged less about the virtues of communism as he moved — just a bit slower than usual—through three c''-'omatic receptions. His normally pink complexion seemed less ruddy. Security and other aides hovered around him solicitously as he limited himself to 20-minute stops at an Indian and Cambodian reception. He wound up with a 45-minute stay at a Communist Romanian get-together. But instead of circulating through the crowd, he spent most of the time in a side room conferring privately with his European satellite chiefs. Khrushchev is known to have some health problems. But there seems to be nothing wrong with him now except that he's tuckered out from jamming his schedule with some 25 private conferences, trips to about 20 diplomatic cocktail parties and about a dozen free-wheeling sessions with reporters. 'GOOD' PACT Braniff Clerk Strike Said Settled Today DALLAS (AP) — A strike of clerks against Braniff Airways was settled today,; a spokesman for the National Mediation Board said today. Terms of the settlement of the 10-day strike were not at once disclosed, Braniff said a wage increase, "satisfactory to both sides," had been granted. Leverett Edwards, mediation board member, said, "This is a very good and fair agreement and all parties seem to be.well satisfied. In addition to the formal contract, the parties executed a .back- to-work, agreement and the strike is officially over." The union struck for better pay and a closed shop. It did hot nb- tain the closed shop. The company claimed that only about 1,000 of the 2,400 workers under jurisdiction of the Brotherly d of Railways Clerks stayed off the job.

Texas Lightning Storms Kill One By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Violent lightning storms killed a man and injured a .woman in Texas Wednesday and a tornado tore the roof from a San Antonio radio station transmitter as wide areas of' the state were hit by fierce weather. Trees and power lines were uprooted by strong winds in Bexar County, drenching rains stalled traffic in Houston and lightning set a small oil storage tank afire in the South Texns city. By early Thursday the weather had calmed and only a few patches of clouds covered Texas. Temperatures ranged from 48 degrees at Dalhart to 72 at Laredo. No rain svas reported. Small craft warnings continued for the lower Texas coast south of Corpus Christi. The forecast for that area called for scattered thunderstorms and squalls with wind gusts of 30 knots.

F. Battdat said the fire was caused by. a bolt of lightning. The rain in Houston stalled traffic as streets and underpasses flooded. Five persons were trapped for 15 minutes in a real estate • o f f i cc. when lightning snapped a 12,000-volt power line which fell in front of the office's only door.
