Newsmen counted 170 defendants, about a dozen of them in military uniform, who entered the courtroom at the trial opening Tuesday. Defense attorneys said more than 200 were on trial. The ictitt'sed aré charged with waging Vmcd rebellion in the Escambray Mountains or with collaborating with the insurgents. Among those on trial was an American identified by the semiofficial newspaper Revolución as Richard Pecoraro of Staten Island, N. Y. A New York City fireman by that name was fired from his job earlier this year after overstaying his leave on a trip to Cuba. A second military tribunal at Santiago in eastern Cuba, was to begin hearing evidence today against 21 men the government aays invaded the northeast coast of Cuba last week. They included another American identified as Anthony Zarba. The Armed Forces Ministry announced Tuesday night that only five of the 27-man landing party was still at large. The leader pre. viously had been reported killed. TOKYO (AP)—A fanatic right- wing student today assassinated the Socialist party chairman, Inejiro Asanuma, an avowed friend of Communist China and the militant leader of Japanese opposition to the U. S.-Japan alliance. The assassin, a slender Otaya Yamaguchi, 17, stabbed Asanuma twice with a foot-long sword as Asanuma spoke to a political forum on clean campaign practices. Members of the audience hurled the youth to the floor and carried him off to police headquarters. A leftist throng of 10,000 marched on police headquarters and then on the official residence of Prime Minister Hayato Ikeda, demanding Ikeda’s resignation. They shouted “Down with terrorism.” Police reported that the young killer confessed he had plotted the assassination for the past three days and said he had no accomplice. Police said he told them Asanuma was a traitor who was trying to sell Japan to the Communists. Asanuma was hurried to a hospital where he died of two chest wounds, one of them close to the heart. The assassin was a former member of the ultranationalist Greater Japan Patriotic Society. Members of the extremist Zen- gakuren Student Association and of the big left-wing labor federation Sohyo—Asanuma’s comrades- in-arms in demonstrations against the new U.S. - Japan security treaty last spring—led the march on the station. Debate Shaping Up Over Great Debate NEW YORK (AP)-A great debate appears to be shaping up over the “great debate” between the presidential candidates. Sen. John F. Kennedy has accepted a network offer to make time available for a fifth debate early in November. But Vice President Richard M. Nixon is cool to the idea and has suggested that instead of a fifth debate he and Kennedy expand their fourth joint appearance to two hours. Kennedy has not yet replied. Originally, four one-hour debates were scheduled. Two already have been held and the third is set for Thursday night. The proposal for another debate “around Nov. 2” was made in telegrams Saturday by three Democratic senators. The National Broadcasting Co., the Columbia Broadcasting System and the American Broadcasting Co. agreed to give television and radio time and the Mutual Broad- casting System offered its radio network facilities. Nixon, in San Diego, Calif., suggested through his press secretary that the fourth joint TV appearance now scheduled for Oct. 21 be turned over to the vice- presidential candidates. Pro-Lumumba Crowd Stones White Drivers LEOPOLDVILLE. the Congo (AP)—Scores of Patrice Lumumba’s supporters, barred from visiting the deposed premier at his guarded residence, took out their anger on white motorists in this tense capital today.

(AP) —The United States’ first spy-in- the-sky rocket failed to orbit—for reasons being sought today by Air Force scientists with only meager clues. Project officials announced that the first in the series of Samos satellites radioed back a few messages of its performance Tuesday, then disappeared. It was to be the forerunner of satellites equipped with scanning gear so sensitive they are expected to take pictures or TV shots better than photos made from the U2 reconnaissance plane. Nixon Returns To California Plant 31-Day Swing Through Horn# State LOS ANGELES (AP) — Vice President Richard M. Nixon is back in his home territory today, confident he now has an issue that will help push him into the White House. Nixon will spend 3‘/2 days in his native California, and it’s almost certain that in each speech he will insist he is right — and Sen. John F. Kennedy, his Democratic foe, is wrong — about policy for Quemoy and Matsu. Thursday comes the third round of the big television debate between Nixon and Kennedy. Nixon has gone halfway around the world to latch onto his issue, two tiny islands, off the coast of China. He is sure to hammer away at this two-point theme: 1 . That Quemoy and Matsu should be defended. 2 . That Kennedy is wrong—and engaging in “naive and woolly” thinking that could lead to war— when he says the defense line should be pulled back to the sea between Formosa and the China mainland.

John F. Kennedy today defended his policy on Quemoy and Matsu in a sidewalk interview on his way to have breakfast with Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt. The Democratic presidential candidate was accompanied along the way by William Vanden Heuvel, Democratic candidate for Congress from Manhattan’s 17th District. Vanden Heuvel disclosed to reporters that he had sent a telegram to Secretary of State Christian Herter asking for confirmation of a report that the State Department is negotiating with the Chinese Naionalist government on Formosa for withdrawal of troops and civilians from Quemoy and Matsu, tiny islands off the Chinese Communist coast. Vanden Heuvel said that Rep. John V. Lindsay, R-N.Y., had said in a debate with him Monday night that he and other members of Congress had been informed the department’s policy was to urge a Nationalist withdrawal from the offshore islands. Kennedy reiterated his stand that the offshore islands had been declared strategically indefensible by top military leaders and that the United States should not risk a world war by committing "itself to their defense.

Balloons To Float in City With Gifts bal- the Find No Evidence Starlings Caused Crash of Electro BOSTON (AP)—The turboprop Electra which plunged into Boston harbor 14 seconds after takeoff last week had lost power in one and possibly two port engines—but no structural defects were involved, the chairman of the House Aviathw* subcommittee says. Rep. John Bell W’illiams, D- Miss., said his subcommittee found no reason to order other Electras grounded. The Boston crash, w’hich killed 62 person.s, was the fifth involving the I«ock- heed Electra since the planes went into service two years ago. He said the subcommittee, which held an 8 ‘ 2 -hour closed- door hearing in Boston, found no conclusive evidence that birds sucked into the air intake caused the engines to fail. That is the view of Gen. E. R. Quesada, head of the Federal Aviation Agency, who testified at the hearing. Dead starlings were found scattered over the airport runway used by the ill-fated Eastern Air Lines plane. Stryker Man Killed On Indiana Toll Road About 10 a. m.
