As he left Palm Springs, Communists kill six in ambush near Saigon By HENRY SHAPIRO United Press International MOSCOW (UPI)-The Soviet Union disclosed today that Albania has seized the Soviet Embassy and four other Russian buildings in the Albanian capital of Tirana. Russia said the hostile acts" were unprecedented in international diplo matic practice. The Soviet government news paper lzvestia denounced the Albanian action as "provocation" and demanded the buildings be returned immediately. lzvestia disclosed that the Albanians had taken over five Soviet diplomatic buildings in the j Albanian capital — the main; Russian Embassy building, twoi administrative buildings andj two residences. It said the sciz-! ure occurred last Thursday. j "The provocation of Albanian; leaders who do not take into ac-' count elementary tact in rela-j tions of socialist countries, nor' the norms of international law. . . . cannot but arouse the in-! dignation and wrath of all Soviet people," the official Soviet, government paper said. } The incident kindled smolder- i ling bitterness between Moscow jand Communist Albania, which I has consistently supported Com- jmunist China in its ideological j controversy with the Soviet ! Union. ! The Albanian action occurred i several weeks after Chinese Communist premier Chou En- lai paid a lengthy visit to Al- jbania, the chief backer of Red [China's hard-line communism outside Asia. The Soviet Union and Albania broke off relations in j December, 1961, after a bitter exchange of charges between J the two Communist governments. Caretakers had been! left behind in both embassies. "The Foreign Ministry of the U.S.S.R. has declared its decisive protest in connection with hostile acts of leaders of Albania and demanded that the Soviet buildings be returned immediately." lzvestia said. The Soviet - Albanian dispute broke out in 1956 after Premier Nikita S. Khrushchev instituted! a program of de - Stabilization, which Albanian Communist Chief Enver Hoxha opposed. J Communist China, the Soviet! Union's political and ideological' foe within the Communist world, has championed Albania. The Albanians in turn, have backed the Peking regime in its bitter controversy with Moscow. The seizure of Soviet property in the Albanian capital was believed to be an unprecedented in relations between the two Communist nations. Russia and Communist China have attacked each other bitterly but neither has appeared ready to go as far as to break, off relations. Informed observers said the move in Tirana could add a new dimension to the controversy among the Communist regimes. At the heart of the differences is Khrushchev's idea of peaceful coexistence with the West. j Both Albania and Communist | China favor a hard-line ap-j proach and back the doctrine I that war with the capitalist] West is inevitable. [ Chinese Premier Chou En-Iai| recently paid a visit to Albania.! lzvestia termed the seizure of [a main embassy building, two I administrative buildings and !two residences, as "unprecedented" in international diplo- | matic practice. I The government newspaper I said that Dec. 27 three Soviet I caretakers who had been left i behind in Tirana were given jtwo days notice to leave and that on Jan. 27 Albania prc- jsented an ultimatum that the (Soviet government remove all property from the embassy buildings. These caretakers were shad- lowed and denied electrical and water supplies, lzvestia said. On the other hand. lzvestia said, Albanian caretakers in Moscow received normal treatment. lzvestia made no mention of Albanian Embassy property in Moscow. Until last year when Peking and Moscow began naming names in the Sino-Soviet dispute, the Kremlin often directed its anti-China fire at Albania. At the same time many Chinese broadsides against the Kremlin frequently emanated from Tirana. Federal Judge halts attacks in Hoffa trial CHATTANOOGA, Tenn.

PUSH FOR ACTION WASHINGTON (UPI) — Sen. Kenneth B. Keating, R-N.Y., said Sunday hc would push for action on a bill to set up an independent commission to study the draft law and military manpower problem.

TRENTON, N.J. (UPD—May­ or Arthur J. Holland will move into a racially mixed neighborhood next Friday in hopes of reversing the white exodus to thc suburbs. The 45-year-old mayor and !his pretty wife, Betty, will take up residence in a house hc bought from a Negro who was falling behind on thc mortgage payments. "People have got to be shown that a mixed neighborhood is not necessarily a mn - down neighborhood," Holland Sunday as he took a few minutes off from packing boxes and nailing up crates. Hopefully, he said his action might set an example for other people and attract whites back to the neighbornood and restore a once proud area of Trenton. "It all started when my wife and I got married on July 28, 1962," the mayor said. "Before we got married she worked for Sen. Phillip A. Hart of Michigan and Lived in Georgetown (an old but exclusive district of Washington, D.C.). She thought she would like to get an old house and fix it up.. .possibly in an area which would lend itself to renewal like Georgetown." Holland said they looked for more than a year and finally bought the house for $7,000 through the Veterans Administration and borrowed $10,500 to, remodel it. ' Atty. Gen.

Nevertheless, Dist. Atty. Henry M. Wade said it probably would take 10 more days to compiete thc panel. If the judge carried through with his warning of night sessions, things might go faster. During thc first week, marked by explosively bitter outbursts of attorneys for both sides, the defense had accepted four of the veniremen. Only two of these were acceptable to thc state.

Forty-eight persons were examined during the five days of questioning of the six-day week (Judge Joe B. Brown is holding Saturday sessions from here out during jury picking). Thirty-seven were excused "for cause" — including one ill and 20 who said they would be unable to return a verdict of death in the electric chair.
