UNIFAX Shadowing of Gianeana to Be Curtailed CHICAGO (AP) - The Justice Department says it will appeal both an order curtailing FBI shadowing of Sam (Mooney) Gian­ eana and the contempt citation of an FBI agent. Judge Richard B. Austin of U.S. District Court ordered the FBI Tuesday to cut down its "Russian spy type" surveillance of the reputed underworld lord. The judge also ordered Marlin W. Johnson, special agent in charge of the Chicago FBI office, cited for contempt of court for declining to answer questions during the 53 -year-old Giancana's civil rights suit hearing. In Washington Tuesday night, a Justice Department spokesman said the department would ask the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago to stay Judge Austin's orders, pending hearing of appeals. 'Keep Within Bounds' In response to questions, the spokesman said Johnson had refused to answer to protect FBI files. In court, Johnson cited orders from Atty. Gen. Robert Kennedy and an FBI directive as reasons for his refusal. Within a one-block radius of Giancana's home in suburban Oak Park, Judge Austin ruled, the FBI must limit its surveillance to one watch car on the house and one tail car. The FBI is free to operate as it wants outside the one-block limit, the judge said. He urged the FBI to continue watching Gianeana, but asked that surveillance be kept within bounds. Investigation Demanded In Grain Disappearance Makes Billie Sol 'Look Like Piker' WASHINGTON (UPI) — The United States today pressed its investigation of the illegal cash sale of $32 million worth of surplus U. S. government grains in West Germany.

Meanwhile, the Pentagon, faced with protests it was encouraging military personnel to take part in demonstrations, issued new orders Tuesday night restricting such activities. In a memorandum to all the armed services, Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara declared: "It is high inappropriate and unnecessary for military personnel, with their special obligations of citizenship, to participate in such activities. "I urge every man and woman in uniform to conduct himself accordingly." McNamara did not specifically forbid members of the armed forces from demonstration in civilian clothes while off duty. But he did say none may demonstrate when the activities constitute a breach of law and order, or when violence is reasonably likely to result. As expected, most of the steam in the row over President Kennedy's civil rights proposals was coming from the Senate where the Judiciary and the Commerce committees are holding hearings. Today the Commerce Committee asked Baseball Commissioner Ford C. Frick and the heads of the National and the American Football leagues, Pete Rozelle and Joe Foss, for their views on legislation to bar segregation in places of public accommodation. The bill, a key section of the civil rights program, would apply to sports renas as well as stores, restaurants, hotels and the like. Govs. Ross R. Barnett of Mississippi, George C. Wallace of Alabama and Atty. Gen. Bruce Bennett of Arkansas, all vehement opponents of the bill, urged the committee to investigate what they pictured as Communist in fluences bept on a divide and con quer strategy, 'Mumps for Sale' OXFORD, England (UPI) -Dr George Watson told the British Medical Association Conference Tuesday that children should catch some childhood diseases at an early age and get them over and done with. Watson predicted that someday doctors may offer "mumps for sale" and parents will rush in to make their purchases. Goldwater To File for Re-Election By JACK BELL WASHINGTON (AP) — Come what may, Sen. Barry M. Goldwater intends to file for re-election to the Senate from Arizona next year. If political events should take matters out of his hands and deliver him the 1964 Republican presidential nomination, the Arizonan indicated today in an interview, it would be time enough then to decide whether to seek two offices in the November election. A filing that would place his name on the senatorial primary ballot would have to be made by Goldwater by July 10, three days before the GOP presidential nominating convention opens in San Francisco. If he follows his present inclination, the Arizona senator said he will have the papers ready on June 10, the first day on which they could be filed officially. Sneaky Trick TOPEKA, Kan. (UPI) - The school board today pulled the rug from under a time-honored alibi for students who arrive home late for school. The board announced a new ruling requiring teachers to tele phone parents if .a pupil has been kept after regular classes. al inquiry, case would "make Texas tycoon Billie Sol Estes look like a Rhode Island piker." J. K. Mansfield, the State Department's top foreign aid inspector, confirmed that 60 per cent—or more than 24 million bushels—of feed grains scheduled for shipment to Austria were diverted to West Germany for cash sale. State and Agriculture Depart' ment officials, who have been looking into the case since Christ mas, said there was no evidence so far that the United States lost money in the deal or that any of the grain ended up behind the Iron Curtain. A Barter Agreement Under a barter agreement with Austria, the grain was to be exchanged for strategic materials such as industrial diamonds or platinum Mansfield and Lester P. Condon, inspector general of the Agricul ture Department, said there was no evidence that the United States did not receive the minerals involved in the barter agreement, "The United States got dollar- for • dollar in the transaction, Condon said. But Mansfield did say the grains sale is germany warsened the U.S. balance of payments deficit. The government is now trying to determine whether private U.S. exporters under contract to ship the grains were in collusion with West German importers, he added. The State Department first learned of the diversion when the U.S. agricultural attache in Vienna reported an unusually large amount of surplus U.S grain arriving in the small nation. Six Austriaus Arrested State and Agricultural Department inquiries there and in Washington resulted in the arrest of six top Austrian grain importers on charges of violating that nation's foreign trade laws, Mansfield said. Senate GOP Leader Everett M. Dirksen, 111., accused administration officials of trying to excuse the diversion "on the basis of carelessness or incompetence." Cuban Rebel Leaving U.S. To Form Base MIAMI, Fla. (AP)—Manuel Artime, one of the leaders of the 1961 Cuban invasion, has announced that he is leaving the United States to set up an anti-Castro base in Central America. "We do not plan only hit and run raids," he said Tuesday "Our program is designed to cause permanent injury to the economy of Communist Cuba." Artime, who is said to have supporters in Washington, said his forces would be financed by wealthy Americans, Latin Ameri cans and Latin political parties. His group is to be entitled the Revolutionary Recovery Movement. "We have the moral support of the United States, but this is not Enough," he said.

Common Market Opens Poultry Tariff Discussion BRUSSELS, Belgium (UPI) — European Common Market agricultural ministers started discussion today on a proposal to cut tariffs on U. S. poultry exports to Europe. Observers said the ministers took up the subject as a friendly gesture to Christian Herter, President Kennedy's top trade negotiator, who is in Brussels to press for reduction of the poultry tariffs and work for greater European-American trade cooperation. The agricultural ministers can make no final decision on the question but they can offer pro­ posals to a meeting of the Common Market foreign ministers scheduled July 29. Herter was meeting with Common Market farm expert Sicco L. Mansholt of The Netherlands for lunch and agricultural talks. A Common Market expert quipped: "Chicken is on the menu." American poultry exports have been slashed to one-third of their former $60 million annual total by Common Market tariffs ranging from 35 to <U per cent. U.S. producers believe that if the tariffs can be pulled back to 25 per cent their efficiency will make them competitive in price with European producers who face no tariff barrier. Herter was expected to tell Mansholt the United States wants proof that a solution to the "chicken war" will be in sight by the end of this month. The poultry negotiations have been going on for almost a year without result. The U.S. administration sees the poultry question as a pointer to future European farm policy affecting more than $1 billion worth of farm produce exported annually to the six Common Market nations, Value of Man on Moon Questioned JODRELL BANK, England (AP) —Russian scientists are not convinced, of the value of putting a man on the moon and may seek an international agreement on the worth of such a project, a British space expert reports.

Lovell said he is relaying the suggestion to U.S. and British space officials, . Sir Bernard has just returned from a three-week visit to the Soviet Union. He was the first Western scientist allowed to inspect Soviet space tracking stations. He said the Soviet Union is confident instruments can answer 90 per cent of man's questions about the moon. He conceded, however, that national prestige also was involved. Buddhists Clubbed by Riot Police SAIGON, Viet Nam (UPI) Club-swinging riot police broke up a Buddhist sitdown demonstration today, beating men, women and. children and hurling about 80 persons into trucks which hauled them off to jail. The demonstrators were protesting alleged religious discrimination by the government of President Ngo Dinh Diem, who is a Roman Catholic.

The draft will be shown to carriers and union representatives for any additional comments or criticisms before it is put in final form and sent to the White House Friday. The report, a collection of facts and issues in the four-year dispute, will serve as the basis for the legislation President Kennedy will recommend to Congress on Monday to block the theatened strike. Tuesday, the chjef executives of the members of the Association of American Railroads issued statement asserting that the unions' position in the jobs dispute leaves legislation as the only means of heading off a "calami tous nationwide rail strike." The statement asserted that management has .made "every effort to get the unions' leaders to engage in realistic negotiations" but they "refused to come to grips with make-work practices across the bargaining table."
