MEYER MIAMI, Fla. (AP) - New attack* on Communist Cuba by exile raiders Tuesday or Wednesday were hinted today by members of Miami's refu- fee colony. Officially, they said nothing. But Manuel Ray, head of one action group, has promised to be fighting on Cuban coil before May 20, the nation's Independence anniversary. The exiles added it would not be surprising to hear that Eloy .Gutierrez Menoyo, head of another group specializing in guerrilla tactics, might be in action on May It, anniversary of the battlefield death in 1895 of Cuban patriot Jose Marti. Gutierrez Menoyo, former major in Prime Minister Fidel Castro's rebel army, was one of the moÂ»t successful guerrilla leaders against ex-dictator Fulgencio Batista. He turned against Castro when the Havana regime became Communist. Many here believe both Ray and Gutierrez Menoyo may be In, Cuba now. Sources -in San Juan reported that- Ray left Puerto Rico over the weekend, JUyÂ« 39, an engineer, went Into biding two weeks ago, after saying in a telephone interview that he would return to Cuba either alone or with two or three others to lead the underground on the island. He left behind a well-paying Puerto Rican government job, a wife and five children. Broadcasts heard in Miami from a station identifying itself as Radio Free Cuba, "transmitting from within Cuban territory" told the Cuban people the hour of the Communist "traitors is very near." 1C appealed to Castro's soldiers, militiamen and workers to rebel. Exile loaders claim Castro's regime is ripe for ouster, but US. officials believe the Com- raunist dictatorship has such a tight, police-state grip on Cuba a* to male a popular uprising Refugee leaders said there wfll be a count Wednesday of ballots in a worldwide referendum among Cuban exiles on the question of setting up a five-man central junta as an anti-Castro representative body. Presumably it could serve as a provisional government if Castro's regime were overthrown. More Aggressive Role in Politics tiffed for Papers UNIVERSITY P A R K , Pa.

Boy, 12, Found After 11-Day Stay at Fair NEW YORK (AP)--Dominick Tucci's run of the World's Fair ended Sunday after 11 days and nights. He thought it was a shame. He had planned to spend the summer there. When Dominick, 12, left his Long Island home, he had hinted that he was bound for the fair. And that's where they found him, still the object of a 17-state police alert. Somewhat disheveled, but well-fed, Dominick was reunited with his parents, five sisters and a brother. "I got away from seven cops, and a woman had to catch me," he said. The woman, Naomi Sailed, works at the fairgrounds and recognized him from newspaper pictures. The boy's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Benito Tucci, had gone to the fair in Flushing Meadow, Queens, every day to look for him, but with no luck. Dominick started his safari by sneaking aboard a Long Island Rail Road train at Port Washington, his hometown. He climbed a fence to get into the fair. He said he was thrown out a couple of times, but just climbed back again. Dominick ate well, picking up $5 a day retrieving good luck coins tossed into several fountains. For sleeping, Dominick secluded himself in several pavilions, including one with a ship board setting complete with lifeboat. Was he afraid at night? "There's nothing to be afraid of," said Dominick. Was he glad he had been discovered? "I don't know," he said. "I'm a little homesick. I guess I'm glad." Services Sef For Bishop Peter, 65, Of Johnstown SCRANTON, Pa. (AP) - The Most Rev. Kyr Peter, auxiliary bishop of the American Carpa- tho-Russian Greek Catholic diocese and titular head of the Syracuse division of the church, died Sunday following an illness of several weeks.

Shymansky and when he was elevated to bishop last Nov. 21 he took the name Peter from his father. He received his religious training at ,the 'Russian Orthodox religious seminary at Tenafly, N.J., and had served parishes in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Survivors include two daughters, three sons, a brother and a sister and seven grandchildren. His wife died in 1930.

A requiem service will be held in the Monastery church and interment will take place in the cemetery there. Utah Teachers Begin Walkout For More Funds SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -Utah teachers begin a two-day walkout today to press their demands for more money for education of the state's 270,000 pupils . Gov. George D. Clyde's refusal last week to call a special legislative session to consider more school money triggered the Utah Education Association's call Saturday for a walkout today and Tuesday of its 10,000 members. Most school boards ordered schools open in the face of the threatened action. But the openings were considered only a formality. Two boards obtained court orders forbidding the walkouts in their areas. The state attorney general's office has ruled that schools may, after a token opening, close their doors if children show up and teachers remain at home.

Freed Airmen Tell ot Stay In Red Korea SEOUL, South Korea (AP)-Two Army helicopter pilots disclosed today their Communist captors withheld word of President John F. Kennedy's assassination from them for days. The two U.S. officers also said they were kept apart during most of their year of imprisonment in North Korea. Capts. Ben W. Stutts, 31, of Florence, Ala., and Charleton Voltz, 26, of Frankfort, Mich., revealed some aspects of their captivity in a brief meeting with Lt. Gen. Thomas W. Dunn, U.S. commander in Korea. The conversation was tape- recorded at the military hospital and the Army released a transcript to newsmen. The Army has refused to allow a news conference. Stutts and Voltz, who were freed Saturday, remain under medical observation. Hospital officials described their condition as good. Dunn raised the question of Kennedy's assassination. Voltz said he heard about it on Thanksgiving Day -- six days later. His guards were "very proud of the fact," Voltz said. "They had a big smile and said he had been shot by some loyal Communist party member in the United States." Stutts said: "I was told on Dec. 7 that he was assassinated. But that's the only thing they old me about it." The two pilots were captured May 17, 1963, when their helicopter was forced down by Communist gunfire while they were inspecting border markers. Stutts said North Korean army officers turned them over 'to civilian guards 13 days later.

(AP) --A special six-man task force was created today to begin work on a proposed interstate- federal compact for development of the Susquehzinna River basin. The appointments were made by Dr. Maurice K. Goddard, Pennsylvania's secretary of forests and waters, and chairman of the interstate advisory committee on the huge river basin. The committee is composed of conservation experts from Pennsylvania, New York and Maryland. The task force members are: New York--F. W. Montanari, director of the state water resources commission, Albany; and Frederick L. Zimmerman, research director of the joint legsla'tive commission on inter state cooperation, and professor of political science at Hunter College. Pennsylvania -- Alan J. Som merville, chief engineer, water resources development, Department of Forests and Waters; and Robert J. Trace, assistant attorney general for Pennsylvania. Maryland - Paul W. McKee, director of water resources, Annapolis; and Dr. Carl N. Ever stine, director of the depart ment of legislative reference, Baltimore. William Voigt Jr. of Harris burg, executive director of the interstate advisory committee, was named non-voting secre tary of the task force. Goddard expressed the hope that the group could complete its assignment in time for a compact proposal to be laid before Congress and the general assemblies of the three states as early as next year. "We've dropped a big job into their hands," Goddard said. "It isn't easy to produce a compact on whkh all of us can agree without reservations." Cleartielder (From Page 1) ceived a trophy and a $25 Sav ings Bond. Finishing in the first five were: Clifford Cole, 72, of Phil adelphia, who was third; Bryan Wade, Philadelphia, fourth; and Mrs. Norman Reber, Pottsville, fifth. Other spellers were from Williamsport, Carlisle, Ephrata and Roxborough. The Bee was sponsored by the Lancaster Recreation Associa tion, which entertained the entries at a luncheon at the Brunswick Hotel. Mrs. Cole and Mrs. Owens were accompanied to Lancaster by their husbands and both couples stayed at Lancaster overnight. Yesterday, Dr. and Mrs. Owens attended services at the First Baptist Church where Dr. Owens had served as pastor from 1925 to 1940. Dr. Owens participated in the service yesterday and he and Mrs. Owens met many of their old friends. Clergymen (From Page 1) ---Steve Horn, legislative assistant to Kuchel, said he felt "a formula for an acceptable bill is at hand." Next, the group began its march on the Capitol. En route to the Capitol, the churchmen pause to pray for justice at the Supreme Court building, marking the 10th anniversary of the 1954 Supreme Court school desegregation decision. They planned to pray on the Senate steps and then seek out every senator to appeal for enactment of the civil rights bill. Within the Capitol, meanwhile, there is almost continual jockeying for debate-limiting cloture. Much of what happens depends on the outcome of Democratic and Â· Republican party huddles Tuesday, Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield said. That's when both groups get look at 70 amendments worked out by the Senate leadership and Atty. .Gen. Robert F. Kennedy. The package, aimed at making the bill more acceptable to undecided senators, is being offered by Republican Leader Everett M. Dirksen. As debate by Southerners opposing the bill dragged on last week, there was more talk of trying for cloture -- getting two. thirds of the senators present and voting to approve a curb on further speeches.

Some officials say privately that if the efforts to preserve the neutrality of Laos are unsuc- cesful then the conflict in that country will almost inevitably become a part of the antiguer- rilla war which the United States is supporting in South Viet Nam. Rusk met with Soviet Ambassador Anatoly F. Dobrynin Sunday night. He also conferred with the British Embassy minister, Denis A. Greenhill, and later talked with British Ambassador Lord Harlech in a meeting of ambassadors from countries from the Southeast Asia Treaty Organization, including Pakistan, France, Australia, New Zealand, Thailand and the Philippines. In still another conference Rusk met with representatives of India, Poland and Canada. The three countries make up an international control commission which is supposed to super vise Laos' neutrality under an East-West agreement worked out at Geneva in 1962. CdHornii's June 2 Vote Seen Decisive SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- A* sessing Go?. Nelson A. Rockefeller's Oregon victory, Kooueli. can governors agreed generally today that the coataat lor ta* GOP presidential n%pÂ»iÂ«attoo iÂ»- mains wide open. Some of the teveo state chief executives who responded to in. vitaUoos to comment on their party's political situation indi. cated they think the June 2 Cat ifornia primary may be a decisive factor m determining the nominee. Rockefeller, who won Oregon's IB convention votes in that state's balloting Friday, fans Sen. Barry Gold water of Arizona in the last significant primary before the party convention opens here July 13. Gov. John Anderson of Kansas, chairman of the National Governors* Conference, said the Oregon primary in which Rockefeller topped U.S. Ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge, "shows the Republican nominee La San Francisco is not settled yet." "Goldwater certainly is lead* ing in delegates but I don't think it's in the bag," Anderson said. Goldwater placed third in Ore. gon with Richard M. Nixon fourth. Gov. Robert E. Smylie of Ida* ho said the Oregon results will increase the importance of the California primary outcome. "If Goldwater wins in Call- fornia," Smylie said, "it is likely that he will be nominated on the first ballot. If it looks like that is what is going to happen, it would be smart for the Idaho delegation to go along with him." Gov. John H. Read of Maine said Rockefeller's Oregon victory was "a tribute to his determination and his genuine appeal to the rank and fils voters." "It is also a demonstration," Reed said, "that Republicans want a moderate presidential candidate and one with proven ability as a vote-getter. The re- sutls certainly have boosted Gov. Rockefeller's stock and will make him a top contender at San Francisco." Gov. John H. Chaff* 4f Rhode Island said Rockefeller's Oregon victory had saved me New Yorker's candidacy. Gov. William W. Scranton of Pennsylvania, who has said he would accept a genuine draft for the presidential nomination hut doesn't expect that to happen, said Rockefeller deserved to win in Oregon. Scranton, whose name was on the ballot, finished last behind Sen. Margaret Chase Smith of Maine, among six contenders in the balloting. "My hat is off to Gov. Rockefeller," Scranton said. "He campaigned long and worked very hard." Gov. Archie Gubbrud of South Dakota, who has said he leans toward Goldwater but heads an uncommitted delegate slate in his state's June 2 primary, said he didn't think the Oregon re- suits changed the standing of the candidates. "I don't see any more significance in the Oregon primary that in any of the others," Cub- brud said. "It just happens to be the most recent and that's the one we talk about." Gov. Mark O. Hatfield of Oregon, scheduled to become temporary chairman of the July convention, said tb* result* of his state's primary enhance Rockefeller's chances for the nomination. He said that, among other things, they proved the New York governor could win by bard campaigning. Blatt Aides (From Page 1) ---- delphia said it was possible on some machines for voters, thinking they wen voting for Musmanno or Miss Blatt, to ac tually record their vote on a blank line. Observers said that if such votes could be credited to the candidates, both should gain some votes. However Musman- no had more than a 60,000-vptc edge in Philadelphia and stood to gain the most by such a count if party leaders could ar range' it. Philadelphia Democratic lead ers reportedly were undecided on what course to take to try to have the blank space votes counted. The Pbiladelphi Elections Board had been halted last week by the State Supreme Court and therefore could not go ahead with consideration of 544 challenged absentee ballots. All but 125 had been opened, but not counted, when the board re ceived the court's order. Decisions on challenged absentee ballots were still awaited in Washington, Lucerne and Lackawanna Counties.
