Friday, June 6, 1969 9k* Fleeing Cuban Seeks Escape From Curfews „ MADRID (AP) _ A 22-year- J. old Cuban, who risked subzero . cold, thin air and death to stow ^ away in the wheel well of a Ha. vana-Madrid jet, apparently ^ wanted to escape Havana cur„ fews and military service, the newspaper ABC said today. it The morning newspaper quot- . ed Armando Socarras Ramirez ',' as saying from his hospital bed: - "I launched myself on this so- called risky adventure because ;; in my country youths have to be at home by midnight. It was risky, of course, but to be able to come to Spain'it's necessary to risk oneself, at least in my conditions." Socarras, who studied soldering in a Havana technical school, fell unconscious onto the ramp at Madrid's Rarajas Airport Wednesday after Iberia Flight 942 had parked and stopped its engines. He had survived 7% hours of bitter cold, estimated at about 40 degrees below zero outside the plane, and the lack of oxygen at 29,000 feet. A fellow fugitive, Jorge Perez Blanco, apparently fell to his death from the well over the right wheel, either shortly after takeoff or over Spain just before landing. "Realty," said Socarras, "I don't know if he started the flight. We had to fit ourselves int« the wheel wells and I chose the left wheel. Jorge helped me get in and afterward shifted with the intention of occupying the right. I don't know anything. I can't assure you he made the climb up." SKY SLIDE NOW OPEN DAILY 10 pjn.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Americans are a rather bloody- minded people who "are likely to remain so as long as so many of us think violence is an ultimate solution to social problems," a task force for the National Commission on Violence' reported today. The 300,000 word report by two scholars was released on the anniversary of the fatal shooting of Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, whose assassination led tc formation of the National Corn- mission on the Causes and Prevention of Violence. It's the first of several task force reports to be issued by the commission, which already has published investigative studies of several civil disorders in the United States in 1968. The main body of the bulky, two-volume report is a collection of historical and sociological studies delving into violence in the United States since its founding. A brief summary—by historian Hugh Davis Graham of Johns Hopkins University and political scientist Ted Robert Gurr of Princeton—contained these observations: "Americans have always been a violent people, although this violence has assumed different forms and has involved different groups ''But Americans have been given to a kind of historical amnesia that masks much of their turbulent past. Probably all nations share this tendency to sweeten memories of their past through collective repression, but Americans have probably magnified this process of selective recollection, owing to our historic vision of ourselves as a latter-day chosen people, a New Jerusalem." But, Graham and Gurr say, Berlin Press Man Tries To Escape BERLIN (AP) — The head of the West Berlin government press office was turned back by East German border guards today as he tried to drive to West Germany. The guards told the West Berlin government spokesman, Hanns-Peter Herz, that he was not welcome on the East German highway linking West Berlin with Hamburg. The East German action is believed linked to three days of meetings in West Berlin by committees of the West German Bundestag which ended Wednesday. The Communists contend West German political activity is illegal in West Berlin, which is still nominally under allied occupation.

Added to the black-white conf- ontations of recent years, the scholars said: "Contemporary antiwar pro- .est is unprecedented, both in scope and magnitude, as is uni- 'ersity unrest and the chilling ecent contagion of political murders of national leaders ... Rates of violent crime may lave generally declined as the ndustrial metropolis matured, >nly to have spiraled alarming- y in recent years—much of it eflecting the pathology of the black ghettoes." The report offered these sta- istical measures: —"In numbers of political assassinations, riots, politically relevant armed group attacks, and demonstrations, the United states has been among the half- dozen most tumultuous nations n the world. "But despite its frequency, civil strife in the United States ias taken much less disruptive forms than in many non-Western and some Western coun- .ries." —"Eleven of every thousand Americans took part in civil strife from mid-1%3 to mid-1368 —almost given to turmoil rather' than conspiracy or internal war —compared'with an average of seven per thousand in 17 other Western democracies in a similar five-year period." —"Six of these 17 had higher rates of participation than the United Slates, including Belgium, France, and Italy. —"Although 220 Americans died in violent civil strife in the five years before mid-1968, the rate of 1.1 per million population was infinitesimal compared with the average of 238 deaths per million for all nations, and less than half the European average of 2.4 per million. —"In total magnitude of strife, taking into account the unusual frequency and duration of strife in the United States as well as its more moderate levels of participation and casualties, the United States ranks first among the 17 Western democracies, and 24th among the 114 larger nations and colonies of the world." "Paradox is we pose as a wholly stable republic." Graham and Gurr said a primary reason why violence persists in the United States is that "some fundamental grievances in the United States have not only gone unresolved but have intensified in recent years." The ethnic and cultural mix of the U.S! population, they said, "has meant all but inevitable group competition, friction and conflict." Say Charge It!

France Says Bombs Were Cuban Made PORT AU PRINCE, Haiti (AP) — A four-engine Constellation that dropped incendiary bombs around President Francois Duvalier's palace Wednesday took off from Cuba, the government claims Haiti asked the United States to send warplanes to protect it. A spokesman for the State Department said in Washington the request is under study. One person was reported killed and one injured when one bomb fell on a hut about half a mile from the palace. At least one of a reported six bombs fell in the palace grounds but caused little damage. Authorities said the plane had black and red markings but no national insignia and was driven off by Haitian forces. Authorities said the situation j was very calm after the attack. There was no military visible I action in Port au Prince. Israeli Leader Has French Idea HAIFA, Israel < AP} — Prime Minister Golda Meir says she hopes the next French president will lift the total arms embargo imposed on Israel by former French President Charles de Gaulle. In a question-and-answer session with students, she said the embargo had imposed a "terrible evil" on Israel. De Gaulle ordered the arms ban earlier this year after Israel raided Beirut international airport in retaliation for a guerrilla attack on one of its airliners. Former French Premier Georges Pompidou and interim President Alain Poher, heading into a June 15 presidential runoff, have indicated they Eavor a relaxation of the embargo. Attend Church Sunday •ft
