Peking Radio, the official Red Chinese radio, said the Kremlin had branded the five men unwelcome because they had distributed a Chinese letter denouncing the* Kremlin's stand in the widening rift between the two countries. Diplomats considered the Soviet move the most spectacular overt evidence of the Communist world's ideological quarrel. It came just a few days before the Sino-Soviet showdown talks scheduled to begin in Moscow July 5. In an apparent peace move, the Chinese said they would not retaliate to the Soviet move. Says Demand Unprecedented Pekin Radio quoted a Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman as saying the Soviet demand was "unprecedented in the history of the relations between the two countries." The spokesman said he felt justified in asking "whether or not the Soviet government is deliberately trying to undermine Sino- Soviet '.unity* vitiate the relations between the two states and create obstacles to the talks bewen the Chinese and Soviet parties?" , The radio said Russia had declared "persona non grata" and demanded the recall of Mei Wen- Kang, Lu Pei - Hsin and Wang Yao-Tung, members of the Chinese Embassy in Moscow, and Liu Tao-yu, a Chinese graduate student, and Yao Yi, an "institute functionary." Called Unreasonable The Foreign Ministry spokesman said the Soviet action was "unreasonable" and added "its excuse untenable." The radio said the demand for the withdrawal was delivered to the Chinese Embassy Thursday. The Chinese letter which the five men were said to have distributed was sent June 14 to the Soviet Communist party. The letter listed at least 25 issues which the Peking regime wants discussed at the coming Sino - Soviet talks on the political and ideological differences between the two Communist giants.

I want to express my appreciation to your great president, Mr. Eamon De Valera, and to all of you. We may be removed by two or three generations from Ireland, but yet when I ask how many people have relatives in America, they all hold up their hands. "Ireland has a special role. It is in a sense the mother of many peoples and many nations. I take great satisfaction and pride in being of Irish descent." On his last morning he made a quick swing around the rugged west of Ireland visiting Galway, Limerick and Shannon, before departing for Britain and serious talks with Prime Minister Harold Macmillan. He was made a freeman of the historic west coast areas. - • Nikita Looks For Support From Allies BERLIN (UPI) — Western diplomats i believed today that the main mission of Soviet Premier Nikita S. Khrushchev in Berlin is to close ranks with his allies before his showdown talks with Communist China. Several more Communist leaders of East European countries were due in East Berlin today to join Khrushchev in what is expected to be a full-scale Red summit meeting next week.

(AP)—Illinois Republican senators convened in a rump session today in the wake of Gov. Otto Kerner's proroguing the 1963 General Assembly Friday. , Only the 35 Republicans of the upper chamber met. Junior GOP Close Noisy Convention SAN FRANCISCO (AP)-A pica for unity has closed the Young Republican National Convention, marked by bitter discord over election of officers. Veteran observers called the 13th biennial meeting which end ed early today one of the rowdiest ever staged.

The climax came Friday afternoon when after two hours and 45 minutes of uproar, Donald Lukens, 32, of Washington, D.C., was elected chairman of the Young Republican National Federation for the next two years.

Beaten to the Punch SAN FRANCISCO (UPI) - The San Francisco Fire Department had requested and received permission to set fire to a condemned house at 2973 Folsom St. next month so that rookie firefighters could get the experience. The house burned down Friday, BULLETIN SPRINGFIELD, 111. (AP)-After a brief rump session, Illinois Republican senators today put the wraps on the disputed tag end of the 1963 General Assembly. The 35 Republicans adopted a resolution criticizing Gov. Otto Kerner for dissolving the session Friday night, acted on several measures and then adjourned. The Democratic members of the Senate and both GOP and Democratic House members went home Friday night on orders of Kerner. The governor used his constitutional powers to dissolve the legislature when there was disagreement over final adjournment. The Republicans immediately after an opning prayer by Sen. George Drach, R-Springfield, went into a caucus called by Sen Paul Broylcs, R-Mount Vernon. Quiet Opening The opening of the Republican meeting was quiet. Only a few spectators were in the gallery compared to the throngs on hand Friday night. GOP Sen. Arthur Bidwill, R Park Forest and president pro tern of the Senate, said he did not know what action the Republicans would take. After the wild finish Friday, GOP senators said they would meet today to transact business. Their gesture seemed futile because of the House decision to adjourn until January 1965. This is the normal time for the next regu lar session. The man who brought on the uproar is Sen. Everett R. Peters, R-St. Joseph, chairman of the Illi­ nois Budgetary Commission fof 16 years. When legislature seemed about to end it session on a peace* ful note, Peters found out a combination of Republican and House Democrats were trying to unseat him as budgetary chairman. Behind the move, according to Peters, were Rep. Paul Powell of Vienna, Democratic minority leader and former house speaker, and Mayor Richard J. Daley of Chicago. Republican House Speaker John Lewis of Marshall didn't do anything to help him, Peters said. When word spread through the legislature about the undercover power play, Peters got mad and so did his GOP Senate colleagues. The man slated, to replace Peters is Rep. W.J. Murphy of Antioch, GOP House leader, who admitted ho and many House members resented the "arrogant attitude" given House appropriation bills and other measures by the Senate. Peters is chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee. The budgetary commission's job is to screen appropriation requests every two years from state agencies and present its recommendations to the governor and the legislature. The chairmanship carries personal prestige as to what appropriations are recommended. Republicans in the Senate yelled and hooted when Kerner's proclamation, declaring the session ended, was read by Democratic Lt. Gov. Samuel Shapiro, Senate presiding officer. After telling the Senate the session was over, Shapiro walked off the rostrum. Republicans shouted their protests and Sen. Arthur Bidwill of 1 1 (Continued on page 2) Crowds Pour Into Rome for Coronation VATICAN CITY (UPI) — Government leaders, tourists and pilgrims poured into the Eternal City by the hundreds today for the coronation of Pope Paul VI. The new pontiff will be crowned Sunday in a sol* emn, three-hour ceremony watched by missions representing 90 countries and in ' ternational organiza t i o n s plus an expected crowd of some 300,000 in St. Peter's Square.

Tiered rows of seats were set up in front, but to the side, of the Basilica for the use of official delegations, diplomats and their guests. It has been estimated there is standing room for 300,000 persons in St. Peter's Square. Chief JusUce Earl Warren, representing President Kennedy, will head the American delegation.
