Union's Defense Forces Gen. Lee To Stage Retreat By TOM HENSHAW OETTVSBUHO (AP) — The Union army won a temashiftg defensive victory today over the Confederate forces of Gen. Robert E. Lee, turning back his invasion of the North. The climax of the great three-day battle at Gettys* burg came at 3 p.m. this ~ Silver Price Abroad Tops That of U.S. w —w « wits hot, humid afternoon when 15,000 Confederates under Gen. George E. Pickett assaulted the center of the Federal line. They were hurled back with heavy losses after Brig. Gen. Lewis A. Armistead, 46, of Virginia, and 150 men momentarily penetrated the defenses on Cemetery Ridge. Armistead was killed. Brig. Gen. John D. Imbodcn late tonight quoted Gen. Lee as saying: "Wc must return to Virginia." Losses in killed, wounded and missing during the three-day bat- Gov. Wallace Wins Praise In Alabama By REX THOMAS MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) As an Alabama political figure, Gov. George C. Wallace may have emerged from the University of Alabama racial crisis a taller man than ever before. His "schoolhouse door" stand against the admittance of three Negro students to the university, although unsuccessful, is the reason for a greater prestige. . Wallace still clings to the hope that, somehow, he will convince the federal courts that the three Negroes were illegally admitted to the university, where Confederate officers trained a century ago. Recently, the university board of trustees, of which the governor is ex-officio president, asked the U.S. 5th Circuit Court' of Appeals to set aside the District Court order which put the Negroes in school. . Much of the praise in the state for his refusal to leave the schoolhouse door until federalized National Guard troops marched onto the campus is based on the absence of mob violence. Wallace had sealed off the university with state troopers and had National Guardsmen on standby duty before they were called into federal service. Encouraged by the support, the governor has intensified his determination to withhold Alabama's electoral votes from President Kennedy in next year's election. He traveled to Jackson, Miss., to help organize a companion independent elector drive there. If the two states, and possibly others, do rebel against the national Democratic party again, Wallace may head a states rights presidential ticket. tie were estimated at 23,049 for the Union Army of the Potomac and 28,063 for the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia. .The assault by Pickett's division and those of Brig. Gen. Johnston Pettigrew and Ma.j. Gen. Isaac R. Trimble was launched after one of the greatest artillery barrages ever seen on the North American continent. About 3 p.m., the artillery fell silent and the men of Pickett, Trimble and Pettigrew began their long march across the valley between Seminary and Cemetery Ridges. "Every eye could see (the) legions," reported Lt. Frank A. Haskell of the 2nd Corps, "an overwhelming resistless tide of an ocean of armed men sweeping upon us!" "Regiment after regiment and brigade after brigade moved from the woods and rapidly took their places in the lines forming the assault . . . magnificent, grim, irresistible." The Federal cannon opened fire. Confederate Capt. H. T. Owen described the scene like this: "Round shot, bounding along the plain, tore through their ranks and ricochetted around them; shells exploded incessantly in blinding, dazzling flashes before them, behind them, overhead and among them. "Frightful gaps were made from center to flank, yet on swept the column, and as it advanced the men steadily closed up the wide rents made along the line in a hundred places at every discharge of the murderous batteries in front." Gen. Armistead and his.gallant 150 reached the-Federal defensive wall and clashed hand-to-hand with the Philadelphia Brigade led by Brig. Gen. Alexander Webb, 28. Armistead died with his hand on a Union cannon; his 150 men were quickly killed or captured; the ' great Confederate charge rolled back down the ridge and fled across the valley to safety. Confederate Brig. Gen. Richard B. Garnett also was killed. Brig. Gen. James L. Kemper was wounded and captured, wiping out all Pickett's brigade commanders. Division leaders Pettigrew and Trimble were wounded. On the Union side, Corps commander Maj. Gen. Winfield S. Handock and division command- By SAM DAWSON NEW YORK (AP )-The price of silver on the futures market in London has been pushed above the monetary value of U .S. gov* ernment stocks. The cash price in New York has risen this week to a whisker of the official price. But don't start melting down your silver coins. They're worth more as they are in the metals markets. The U.S. Treasury has enough silver on hand to maintain its official valuation thanks to the recent direction by Congress tc stop backing $1 and $2 bills with the metal. The Treasury can use this released hoard for its increasing coinage needs without competing with other consumers in the London market. Silver dealers say the Treasury stock hangs over the market to prevent any runaway prices for industrial or art uses here at home —• although consumers are resigned to having to pay more for their supplies. j The price rise on the world markets—and the steadily mounting demands that back that increase—comfort many mining operators in the United States. Sil ver thus becomes for them a prof itable by-product of their main lines of copper, lead and zinc— and at a time when lead and zinc prices themselves are firm ing. The spot price for silver on the price-setting London market rose on Tuesday to $1,292 an ounce. For August delivery the price went to $1,297 or higher, with as much as $1.3085 an ounce bid for delivery in June 1964. The monetary value of the U.S. government's silver stocks is $1.2929 an ounce. In New York the cash price was lifted by dealers 0.3 cent an ounce Monday to $1.288. The spurt in price this week was credited to active buying in London due to increased demand by some European nations for both coinage and industrial uses. Consumption of silver worldwide has been running well above mine output. Electronics and various space age devices have increased the use of the metal. Affluent societies both here and abroad have incre,ased their buying of household and other silver objects. And the number of silver coins needed for vending machines, turnstiles and generally higher consumer purchases has put a strain on many nations' mints.

Alfred Pleasanton, told him tonight: "I will give you half an hour to show yourself a great general.
