JULY 8 963 PRICE SEVEN CENTS Mark Jet Into Camp Persons Die i By THE ASSOCIATED PUESS The nation's traffic deaths hit a record hieh for a four-day Independence Day holiday. Traffic accidents cost the lives 6i 553 persons during the 102-hour holiday period extending from 6 p.m. local time Wednesday to midnight Sunday. The previous high toll for a four-day Fourth of July Holiday was 50&, set in 1961. Belated reports probably will boost the final figure. There was a heavy spurt in fatalities Sunday and Sunday night as millions of motorists jammed highways in the homeward rush. The National Safety Council, in a pre-holiday statement, estimated 550-650 persons would die in traffic accidents during the long weekend. ••'mi hi V',™- i.' v : > • + jf r j i— _i -h-ij - J»_r-T* - _H i • . • - r j J + j •••• ' - • r J m J - £ 1 r J w mm ^^^^^^ mm* TAKES LEAD Dr. Arturo Mia, a 63-year-old country doctor has a commanding lead in Argentina's presidential election Sunday, but because he did not receive the required 51 per cent of the ballots, 'electors will Ake a choice* dictator of exll- Juan Peron suffered a severe setback. UNIFAX Rural Doctor T * ^ Has Big Lead I In Argentina "It "Costly Weekend" has been week- a costly end in terms of accidental death and injury, breaking all records for a summer holiday weekend," said Howard Pyle, council president. r \"The wicked part of it is that at least 70 per cent of the damage was done through avoidable situations; speeds too great for conditions, failure to yield right-of- way, violation of the centerline in the road, and drinking and driving." The council's figures show that traffic deaths in the first five months this year have averaged 100 per day. An Associated Press survey of a four-day non-holiday weekend showed 458 traffic deaths. The 102- hour period was from 6 p .m. Wednesday, June 19 to midnight BUENOS AIRES (UPI) Dr. A»'*uro Illia, heading the ticket of the moderate Peoples Radical party, maintained n sizeable popular vote lead today in Argentina's presidential elections. His showing*doomed a blank ballot campaign by supporters of ex-dictator Juan D. Peron. With more than 70 per cent of the vote counted, Illia, a country doctor, held a commanding lead over Dr. Oscar Alende, leader of radical faction. an intransigent Failure of the Peron-backed blank ballot campaign was the biggest surprise of the election. With unemployment high and the economy stalled after revolts and government crises, Peronists had been expected to attract large numbers of discontented voters. Sunday, June 23. There were several multiple fatality accidents during this year's holiday. In addition to trafic deaths, 143 persons drowned and 41 others lost their lives in boating accidents. WILLOW GROVE, Pa. (AP) A pilotless Navy jet crashed on a baseball field Sunday, then careened in flames into a day camp bathhouse, killing seven persons at a family picnic. Four children were among the dead. The pilot of the jet bailed out safely a half mile away. One man was killed as the i. plane, its wings ripped off when it ploughed through trees, hit the field during a sudden rainstorm. Bodies of the other victims were dug out of the leveled bathhouse. 17 Injured At least 17 of the 125 or more persons at the picnic were injured. Twelve were admitted to Abington Memorial Hospital, one in serious condition. Killed were Jennie Klein, 36; her daughter, Sandra, 10, and her son, Harvey Klein, 4; Jeanne Arnold, 40, her daughter, Judy Arnold, 1; Emanuel Milton Fine, 47, and Caroline Hershfield, 10. All lived in Philadelphia. Capt. John W. Butler, Boiling Springs, Pa., 30, a Marine Reserve pilot, was headed for a landing at Willow Grove Naval Air Station, 18 miles north of Philadelphia, when something went wrong with the FJ Fury fighter. Navy spokesman said they didn't know what caused the malfunction, adding that it apparently occurred in the electrical system. Capt. Albert Waldman, commander of the base, said, 'There will be a big investigation. We will determine what happened." Annual Reunion The end of the airfield's landing strip is 1 only. 500 feet from the; Green Hill Day Camp which the picnickers had rented for their annual reunion. They were members of either the "Roseman Cousins Club" or the "Weiner Family Circle," with parts of both groups related to each other. Capt.

Also present were House Democratic Leader Carl Albert, Okla., and Assistant Senate Democratic Leader Hubert H. Humphrey, Minn. The Commerce and Labor committees would have jurisdiction over any legislation proposed by the White House to block the walkout. Kennedy first discussed the rail crisis with Wirtz. Assistant Labor Reynold and special counsel Theodore C. Sorensen. The four of them then met with the congressional group. To Brief Leaders White House Press Secretary Pierre Salinger said the President also planned to brief Senate and House Democratic leaders Secretary James White House representatives had accepted the government plan. The proposal called for 20 days of negotiation to work out a short-term solution on two key is? sues in the dispute and a two- year test of any agreement.

At the same time, all unlicensed financial or blank ballot vote commercial transactions with Cuba by Americans were forbidden. A massive woul d have undermined the chances of any rrynority presidential candidate to form a strong government once elected. With 32,711 of Argentina's 46,196 precincts reported, unofficial returns gave Illia 1,836,345 votes. Alende had 1,282,054 and Pedro Aramburu, former sional president, 1,110,631. The total of blank ballots was 1,109,603, about 16 per cent of the vote total, a sharp drop from the 25 per cent response to a Peron- Isi blank ballot campaign in 1960. Rejection of Pefon's orders, issued from his exile quarters in Madrid, Spain, raised the possibility his hard-core section of the electorate might be absorbed into democratic parties. Election rules set down by Argentina's military-civlian government barred Peronists from running their own presidential candidate.

The new regulation, instituted by the Treasury at the request of Secretary of State Dean Rusk, became effective one minute after midnight this morning. A Restriction The action, the State Department said, was taken to "restrict the movement of funds from Cuba" in accordance with the July 3 resolution of the organization of American States urging member governments to counter Castro-type Communist subversion in the Western Hemisphere. The controls as announced by the State Department will work three ways. First the Treasury blocked all assets in the United States of Cuba or persons in Cuba, estimated to be in the neighborhood of $33 million. Second, it prohibited Americans to engage in "unlicensed trans­ fer" of U.S. dollars to or from Cuba. Third, it prohibited all other unlicensed transactions with Cuba or Cuba nationals or tranac- tions involving property in which there is a Cuban interest. Cuban refugees in the United States or elsewhere in the free world will be. regarded as backed nationals" unless un- they are acting on behalf of the Cuban regime, the State Department said. It said that such refugees have to prove "serious hardship" if they want to send money to their-- immediate families in Cuba, however. Officials in explaining the new regulation stressed that while it is a unilateral action, it is based on a decision of the hemispheric nations. protesting alleged discriminatory hiring practices. In Baltimore, more than 100 in- tegrationists who tried to force their way past park owners and police into the Gwynne Oak Amusement Park met with violence.

The Justice Department said the 5-count indictment was returned by a federal grand jury in Philadelphia against Mayor John C. Kubacki and Abraham Minker, who is serving a 4-year prison term for evading gambling excise tax. Kubacki is the second Reading official to be indicted by the grand jury this year. Police chief Charles S. Wade was indicted for perjury last May. Kubacki, 51, and Minker, about 65, are accused of receiving $3,000 from the Keontz Equipment Corp. of Pittsburgh, a distributor of parking meters, in April 1960, and $7,500 and an $880 check from the Karpark Corp., Starkville, Miss., in December 1961. The indictment charges the pair with violating the Hobbs Act, which forbids obstruction of interstate commerce by extortion; and violating the general federal conspiracy statute, and the Antiracketeering Travel Act.

Khrushchev and Spaak were discussing East-West problems in the Soviet premier's first meeting with a Western statesman since I meeting with high Soviet party officials in Moscow.
