Angry Eddie Fisher fires blast at wife's lover HOLLYWOOD (UPI) — Lovers Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton want to talk with Eddie Fisher today, but the angry singer showed no sign of joining the tangled odyssey before it moved on to another international scene. The timetable to settle the marital status of the dark haired movie queen and permit her to marry Burton kept the amorous pair on the move. Fisher is due to leave Friday for Europe and Burton must be in Canada next week. Liz and Burton slept late after their hectic airport arrival and madcap spring Wednesday- night with an entourage of newspapermen and photographers that included a pause at a bar for a couple of fast drinks. The fashionable Beverly Wilshire Hotel, where the lovers [were registered in a sumptuous | suite, returned to subdued normalcy after the jostling arrival ; scene. Fisher loosed a broadside at his wife and her lover and sug- igested Burton keep his Shakespearean posturing for the I stage. "I have no intention of surrendering to Elizabeth and Mr. Burton the property which 1 own, especially in light of Elizabeth's preposterous divorce complaint claiming that I 'abandoned' her. "The differences between the: attorneys have arisen over the) value of our respective property. Says Story False "To purposely distort this into any story saying that I want money from Elizabeth is absolutely false." Fisher, who had not been in the same town with his estranged wife and her lover j since the scandal exploded in Rome almost two years ago, says he knows of no plans for !a summit meeting to iron out ! their differences. I He also objected to statements •by Burton advising him on I how he should handle the di vorcc. "I have never advised one way or the other on Mr. Burton's treatment of his wife," Fisher said. "And I would thank him to refrain from commenting about my actions concerning my wife. "I hardly think that Mr. Burton is the one to lecture on morals, integrity and honesty— to me, or anyone else. And I am convinced more than ever before that he deserves an Oscar for sheer gall." Justice Dept. asked to probe Baker's loan WASHINGTON (UPI) — The Justice Department has been .asked to investigate a 15-day bank "loan" of $100,000 which enabled former Senate aide Robert G. (Bobby) Baker to get a jsmall Business Administration loan on his storm-damaged Carousel Motel, it was disclosed j today. Sen. Hugh Scott, R - Pa charged that the loan was "a fraud which was intended to be a fraud." He spoke out after Senate investigators were told Baker used the "loan" from the American National Bank at nearby Silver Springs, Md., in order to qualify for an SBA disaster loan in 1962 although there never was any plan to use the funds. Fred Suss, general counsel for the SBA, told the senators he had asked the Justice Department to look into the case. Scott called it a "phony transaction" negotiated to deceive a federal agency.

Kennedy today headed off a threatened full-scaie war that could have involved the United States in the Malaysia dispute. Kennedy won agreem e n t from Indonesia and Malaysia to an immediate cease - fire along their mutual Borneo border. And he received acceptance for a later three - nation summit conference of Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines to settle the issue once and for all. After the agreement w a s reached, however, Indonesia | policy of "confrontation" short ;of war. I Indonesian President Sukarno land Malaysian Premier Tengku i Abdul Rahman issued the cease ifire orders to their forces on the Borneo border today. Indonesia said its regular troops were notified promptly and that irregular forces would be notified through representatives in Jakarta. Similar Orders Malaysia's national defense council sent similar cease-fire orders to its security forces. Rahman said that his jungle ( troops would get the word! speedily by dropped leaflets and broadcasts from planes. Both men also announced their agreement to meet at the summit, along with Philippines President Diosdado Macapagal.i In announcing his acceptance of the cease - fire and summit ideas, Sukarno thanked President Johnson for having sent Kennedy on his peace mission! to Asia. I Rahman also noted that it! was a "matter for satisfaction"! that Kennedy had been success-; ful in ending the shooting. However, Indonesian Information Minister Roeslan Abdul- agani said that Sukarno's cease fire order does not mean the end of Jakarta's "confrontation" policy against Malaysia. "Confrontation" is a policy of international protest and pressure short of war. Sukarno won west New Guinea from the Dutch in this way. Preliminary talks probably will be held in Bangkok, Thailand, at the foreign minister level. The summit sessions will follow later, probably in Tokyo.

"When the coast looked clear, we ducked into a place for pizza," Olson said. If was about the only chance the young couple had to spend together during the whole evening. Olson and Miss Johnson sat by themselves in one booth in the restaurant, Paisin's Pizza. The Secret Service agents; Olson's sister, Karen, 20, a sophomore at River Falls, Wis., State College; Karen's date, Jerry Sargent, Minneapolis, a student at UW; and Doug Dauge, Cumberland, Wis., also a UW student, crowded into a second booth. Only a few minutes had passed until they were recognized. They ate the rest of the pizza in the car. At 11 minutes after 1, the group walked into the lobby of the Park Motor Inn. Olson spent about 15 minutes more with Miss Johnson, then left for the housing unit where he stayed. ate aide but that he nevertheless over-estimated his worth by nearly $400,000 less than a year ago. A statement filed by Baker on Feb. 1. 1963, with the Fra ternity Savings & Loan Assn. of Baltimore listed his net worth as S2,166,886. But Lorin H. Drennan, a General Accounting Office (GAO) investigator who produced the statements, said there were marked inconsistencies in the claimed worth. Drennan said the items listed by the former Senate aide did not jibe with the totals he claimed as assets and obligations. If the itemized entries were accepted as correct, he said. Baker's net worth would have been only $1,791,186. The committee also dug further into financing of the plush Carousel Motel at Ocean City, .Md.. in which Baker was a partner. The motel, opened with a gala, named-studded party in July, 19G2. was officially soldi Jan. 1, 1963, to the Serv-U Corp., a fast-growing vending machine company headed by Baker's lav/ partner, Ernest C.

(UPI) — Sen. Barry Goldwater said today the New Hampshire presidential preference primary is becoming muddled because too many candidates are getting into the act. Goldwater spoke out at a news conference on the last leg of a three-day campaign swing in New Hampshire. He said the entry in the primary of Republican former Gov. Wesley Powell as a "favorite son" candidate may make the contest "meaningless." He said, "I would certainly expect Gov. Powell to attract a sizeable bloc of votes." Hc said that with New York Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller, former Minnesota Gov. Harold Stassen, Ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge and perhaps Sen. Margaret Chase Smith, R- Maine, in the race "no one could come out a decisive winner" in the preferential poll. Of his chances of victory in the primary, Goldwater said, "the situation hasn't changed much here in the last two months." "I see no difference in the (voters') position on Rockefeller and an indecisiveness on others. They've made up their minds whether to vote for Rockefeller but haven't made up their minds on me." Goldwater was enthusiastic about the support he hoped to receive in the preferential primary in less than seven weeks. "I've never found this much enthusiasm in my own state," he told 500 on hand Wednesday night at a speech in Laconia. During the first two days of this campaign swing, the Arizona senator and his wife have traveled about 300 miles through southern, western and central sections of the state as he concentrated his attack on Rockefeller, President Johnson and the liberalism of the past 30 years. j committee showed that Tucker listed Baker as owning 28'. i per cent of Serv-U Stock. The $100,000 "loan" was made to the Carousel partners when they were seeking a $54. 400 small business loan in 1962 after the motel, still under construction, had been badly damaged by a storm The federal agency demanded evidence that the partners had invested at least $160,000 in cash in the motel. The SBA said it had evidence of $60,000 but wanted proof of another $100,000. The senators are seeking to determine whether Baker built his fortune by use of his influ ential position as an aide and confidant to Democratic senators. Baker's February, 1963, financial standing was listed in a statement filed with the Fraternity Savings and Loan Association of Baltimore. Russians tell of launching better rockets MOSCOW (UPI)—The Soviet Union tonight announced the launching of "new improved versions of space vehicle booster" rockets in the Pacifi Ocean test area. The Soviets announced late last year they would be carrying out tests until early January from their secret rocket launching pads in Central Asia several thousand miles into the Pacific. An announcement today said: "The Soviet Union has carried out launchings of new improved versions of space vehicle boosters into the area of the Pacific Ocean. "The flights of the rockets and the operation of all their stages were normal. The ... penultimate stages landed in the prescribed area with great accuracy." Tass did not give the exact dates of the launchings or say how many were carried out. But it announced that the rest area was now open to shipping and aircraft which had been previously warned away from two areas encompassing thousands of square miles of the Pacific. the $11.1 billion measure passed by the House Sept. 25. A number of amendments remained to be disposed of, including an $11.5 billion proposal I by Sen.

The U.S. Air Force already has flown more than 1,200 rela fives of American servicemen in the Canal Zone back to the United States, and an undetermined number of others are under orders to leave. Reliable sources say many of about 300 U.S. diplomats and other government employes forced out of Panama by last week's diplomatic break will be sent home soon for reassign mcnt. Contact between the zone and Panama proper has been virtually cut off since anti-Ameri can violence erupted in Panamanian communities near the canal. Panamanians are com plaining already about "very bad" business Hotels in Panama cities are reported cutting back slightly on employes' working hours because of the loss of U.S. trade. Canal Zone purchases of food, beer and other products from Panama were totally suspended for about a week, and they are still only a fraction of normal, mainly because U.S. food inspectors do not yet consider it safe to return to Panama. In 1962, the latest year for which figures are available, U.S. official and private agencies spent more than $28 million in Panama.

But committee sources said Gore stood little chance of winning any major changes in the complex measure and prospects appeared good for final action on the bill by nightfall. In unanimously approving the rate slash for individuals the Senate group adopted without change the schedule in the House-passed bill. Coupled with actions already taken, the rate cuts would remove about 1.5 million persons from the tax rolls altogether and provide liberal benefits for 50 million taxpayers in all in come brackets. The reductions would average about 18.8 per cent for all tax payers. Tax brackets now rang ing from a low of 20 per cent to a high of 91 per cent would be 14 to 70 percent by 1965. Brown calls for rules of fair play in credit LOS ANGELES (UPI)— Gov. Edmund G. Brown called today for new "rules of fair play" to protect the consumer who borrows money or buys on the installment plan. He suggested there is strong evidence that consumers are paying too much interest for their loans. Brown's statement was to be delivered to the Assembly Committee on Finance and Insurance by the governors Consumer Counsel, Helen Nelson. Brown stressed what he called two major problems in present 1 endings: a lack of competition that lets rates creep up, and confusing ways of listing interest rates that puzzle the borrower. , Castro back home from Moscow MOSCOW (UPI) — Cuban Premier Fidel Castro returned to Havana today in secrecy at the end of a 10-day visit to the Soviet Union in which he backed Russia publicly in its dispute with Red China. Moscow Radio said the Cuban leader flew from Kiev in the Ukraine by way of Murmansk to Havana aboard a giant TU114 jetliner. The broadcast said the plane reached Havana at 8:40 a.m. EST. The radio station said that Castro received a farewell embrace and a kiss from Khrushchev at the airport in Kiev. Khrushchev had good reason to be pleased with Castro's trip here, the second he has made in eight months. Roosevelt intends to be candidate WASHINGTON (UPI) — Rep. James Roosevelt, D-Calif., announced today that he intends to be a candidate for the Senate but will not make a final decision until later, possibly mid-February. Roosevelt announced his availability to succeed the ailing Sen. Clair Engle, a fellow Democrat, at a news conference. He said in a statement: "As of now I intend to be a candidate for the United States Senate. There are, however, certain factors which require a little more consideration. There­ for, I shall make my intention finally clear not later than the middle of February. "My only interest is that California be provided with the most vigorous, capable and most fully experienced leadership in order to safeguard and insure her future development." Roosevelt, 56, made it clear that he would not have considered the Senate race except for Engle's illness. ' Rusk asks Free World to halt trade with Cuba NEW YORK (UPI)—Secretary of State Dean Rusk called on free world nations Wednesday night to reduce their trade with Cuba in order to curb the threat of communism in the Western Hemisphere. "The continuing dedication of the Cuban regime to active terrorism and aggression in Latin America is a basic reason for our attitude toward free world economic ties with Cuba, Rusk said. We cannot accept the contention that trade with Cuba is comparable to ordinary trade iwith any Communist country." "Those countries which for commercial reasons supply Cuba, especially with goods critical to the Cuban economy, are prejudicing the efforts of the countries of this hemisphere to reduce the threat from Cuba," he said. Rusk, speaking at the 75th anniversary dinner of Barnard College, cited the Cuban missile crisis of October, 1962, in declaring that "what happens in Cuba can effect the security of the whole free world." Yorty may be candidate for Senate too LOS ANGELES (UPI)—Mayor Samuel W. Yorty said Wednesday night that he "definitely" will not be a candidate for the U.S. Senate if incumbent California Democrat Clair Engle runs for re-election. At the same time, the mayor said he had not made up his mind as to whether he will run for the office if Engle drops out of the race. Yorty made the comments on bis return from a trip to Washington, D.C., where he said he saw the ailing senator.
