(UPI) —African delegations today were preparing a resolution on Portuguese colonialism more moderate than Tuesday's Soviet demand in the Security Council that Portugal get out of Africa this year. The council, in the third day of debate on Portugal's African colonies, awaited the reply of Portuguese Foreign Minister Alberto Franco Nogueira to charges of misrule raised by the 32 African nations and the Soviet Union. But the African resolution, expected to be presented to the council today or Thursday, was much less drastic than the Soviet demand voiced Tuesday by Ambassador Nikolai T. Federenko. He. told the council that Portugal's "colonial regime should be liquidated before the end of this year" and that economic and diplomatic sanctions should be voted "unequivocally" against. Portugal., The four African diplomats who presented the case against Portugal on instructions of the recent African summit conference in Addis Ababa went no further than asking the council to set a time limit — date unspecified — for Portugal to free its colonies or face sanctions. Army Pulls Out Of 'Ole Miss' After 10 Months OXFORD, Miss. (AP)-The U.S. Army continues pulling the last of its troops out of this university town today. By Thursday, the last soldier will be gone, The 250-man detachment — all that remained of the more than 23,000 sent here last fall to quell the rioting which erupted when James H. Meredith enrolled at the University of Mississippi — began tearing down their tent camp late Tuesday. Meredith, 30, the Negro who pioneered integration at Ole Miss, meanwhile went to his classes today under the watchful eyes of federal marshals. Meredith is scheduled to graduate Aug. 18, becoming the first of his race to win a sheepskin at the 115-year-old university. Meredith will receive a bachelor's degree in political science. is another step in 'making this plant an important factor in the hose market," said Charles Gates Jr., president of the Denver-based company. "Galesburg is now the only domestic facility of the Gates Rubber Co. producing high-pressure hydraulic hose and is the key to Gates' success in a market that has tremendous growth possibilities." Manufacture of this type of hose has been switched to the Galesburg plant from the Denver headquarters of the concern. The expenditure of approximately $2 million will be for additional facilities and equipment, mostly the latter, said H. B. Dutell, general manager of the local plant. "Confidence in the future growth of the Galesburg plant was reflected in the original building, which provides most of the space we need for the equipment we are adding in the current expansion program," Dutell said. "However the present building is being expanded by the addition of 21,600 square feet of floor space to provide warehouse area for increased production and addition of several new hose products." Started in 1960 The present plant, which was built starting in November 1960, totals more than 233,600 square feet. Production of rubber hose began at the end of 1961. Present employment is 300. • F. R. Orr Construction Co. of Denver, which built the original plant and the first addition, has been selected as the general contractor for the present expansion. The company said that, as in the past, local contractors will be used for nearly all the subcontract work. Preliminary work on the expansion has already been started, and orders have been placed for the heavy equipment. Robert Drennan, industrial relations manager, said that since the equipment must be custom made to Gates' specifications, it will require from three to six months for delivery. Add New Lead Press Most significant equipment being added, the company officials said, is a new lead press. With the addition of other processing equipment, this will double the hose production capacity. The lead pi'ess is used to provide a temporary lead mold used during the curing cycle of the hose. Other major equipment being added includes a Banbury mixer, used in blending raw rubber and chemicals into the stock used for hose manufacture, with a capacity one-third greater than the Banbury already installed; a new Judge Convicts Man But Given A Helping Hand CHICAGO (AP)—A man found guilty of drunken driving Tuesday was urged by the judge to apply for probation and to take his case to the Illinois Supreme Court. Anton Lcitner, Jr., 30, Chicago, said he decided not to drive after leaving a tavern on a cold, December evening. He entered his car, turned on the engine and heater, and dozed off. Illinois law, according to Traffic Court Judge William M. Barth, says that a motorist who is "in control of the automobile" is considered driving, whether he's moving or not. Therefore he ruled Leitner guilty of negligent driving, drunken driving and disorderly conduct. Testify Negotiators on Test Ban Optimistically Cautious (Continued on page 2) 3 Churchmen for Integration WASHINGTON (AP) - Three churchmen representing Protest ant, Catholic and Jewish groups told Congress today that segregation is immoral and "racism is blasphemy against God." Dr. Eugene Carson Blake, spokesman for the trio, told a House Judiciary .subcommittee in prepared testimony that "we are in the midst of a social revolution. Please God it will remain a social revolution and not degenerate into civil chaos." He urged Congress to act now to pass' President Kennedy's civil rights program; Dr. Blake, chief executive officer of the United Presbyterian Church who was arrested earlier I this month in a Maryland anti- segregation demonstration, appeared with the Rev. John F. Cronin, an official of the National Catholic Welfare Conference, and Rabbi Irwin M. Blank of the Synagogue Council of America. The subcommittee was one of three congressional groups hearing testimony today favoring the President's broad program to outlaw segregation in all major areas of public life. Atty. Gen. Robert F. Kennedy, in his fourth trip to Congress in behalf of the legislation, went before the Senate Judiciary Committee where he faced a hostile audience of Southern senators headed by Chairman James O. Eastland, D-Miss. Cuba Seizes * U.S. Embassy As Reprisal HAVANA (UPI)—The Castro government today expropriated the United States Embassy Building and grounds in a move believed unprecedented in diplomatic history. The action was taken in reprisal for the freezing of Cuban government ac- 1 Chairman in Appeal for Strike Delay accounts in U.S. banks, according to the expropriation decree. The Swiss mission protested verbally both the expropriation decree and a Cuban government request that they evacuate the premises as soon as possible. The protest was made by Swiss Charge d'Affaires Charles Masset to Foreign Minister Raul Roa. Further consultations between Roa and Masset were expected today. Signed by Ctstro The decree was signed by Prime Minister Fidel Castro, President Osvaldo Dorticos and Treasury Minister Luis Alvarez. The embassy has housed the Swiss mission for American affairs, beneath the Swiss flag, since the United States broke relations with Cuba on Jan. 4, 1961. The nationalization decree even specified that all the embassy's "equipment and furniture have been assumed by the state." The decree said "it is the duty of the revolutionary government of Cuba, in the maintenance of national dignity and sovereign rights of our people, to respond to the aggressions" of the United States. The latest aggression was the bank freeze, the decree said. The building on the Malecon Seawall Drive was modeled after the United Nations Secretariat Building in New York. New System Desired WASHINGTON (UPI) - Central Intellience Agency Director John A. McCone asked a House armed services subcommittee Tuesday for a better retirement system for U.S. agents. McCone said the system should be similar to that of the foreign service. He did not reveal any more details of his proposal in public session and after he announced it the subcommittee went into closed session.

Harris appealed to the railroads to give Congress more time to consider the complicated dispute presented to it by President Ken nedy. He asked for an answer within 24 hours. 1 Daniel P. Loomis, president o the Association of American Rail roads, said he did not know what the railroad answer would be, nor when it would be made known. However, an early reply was expected. The Arkansas Democrat said that Congress could not and should not be required to act on Kennedy's proposal for averting a strike by next Tuesday, the date the railroads said they would put the new work rules into operation. The rail unions have stated they will strike if the rules are put into effect.' Disturbed by Request Reading from typed sheets of paper, Loomis said he was "disturbed" at the request for postponement because further delay could bring more harm to the hard - pressed rail industry. He contended that the mere threat of a strike was driving business away from the railroads. Harris then told Loomis that the committee recognized the railroads' problem. He added, however, that Loomis' statement "gives substance to what I say about 30 days being too short a time to consider this matter." NEW CHIEF — Dr. George E.

Miss Rice-Davies said Tuesday during the London vice trial of Dr. Stephen Ward that she had been intimate with Fairbanks, currently a resident of Britain who has entertained royalty at his home. Miss Rice-Davies, when asked why she brought Fairbanks' name into the case, said it was because she "did not like him." "Is Shocked " Following her testimony, Fair- ^ banks issued a statement of denial through a spokesman here because British law temporarily prevents him from speaking out in London. "I was shocked to hear a report about what I had remembered as a perfectly innocuous acquaintanceship," Fairbanks said through the spokesman. "My meeting with both Miss (Christine) Keeler and Miss Rice- Davies occurred as a result of their wanting an opportunity in films in which, as I was no longer producing, I could not really assist them. I suggested agents and others they might contact." MOSCOW (UPI) — Premier Nikita S. Khrushchev today met with his satellite leaders from Eastern Europe and Asia for a conference expected to ratify the Moscow-Peking split and tighten the unity of the Soviet bloc. The meeting was billed as a session of the Council of Mutual Economic Assistance (COMECON) the Communist rival to the Euro pean Common Market, but its discussions were believed certain to range far beyond questions o" trade. It was the first summit meet ing in the Communist world since the breakup of the Sino-Soviet ideological talks last weekend, and the deepening division in the communist ranks was expected to dominate its discussions. Several Topics Khrushchev's apparent readiness to seek settlements with the West was believed to be another major topic. The COMECON meeting coincided with the final phase of East-West nuclear negotiations. Romania, which sent no representatives to Khrushchev's East Berlin summit preceding the Sino- Soviet talks, was represented today by Premier Gheorghe Gheorghiu-Dej. Romania appeared for a time to be wavering from the Moscow line, not out of sympathy for Peking but because it resented Moscow controls on its industrialization drive. It was the only Soviet bloc nation to publish last month's Chinese attack on Khrushchev. Outer Mongolia, the sole Asian Communist nation to back Khrushchev against Peking, confirmed its support by sending both Premier and Party Chief to the COMECON talks. Mongolia, which lies between the Soviet and Chinese borders, has been wooed by both sides in the past. on weapon tests. Western diplomats were still hopeful the agreement could be signed today, but they cautioned newsmen there could be a slip. It could not be learned what ,ast minute problem the Russians had raised. But the treaty draft was reported not yet complete for signing. An air of happy triumph among the Western delegations Tuesday was modified this morning. But confidence continued that a test ban treaty would be concluded. U.S. sources In Washington said it appeared Soviet Premier Khrushchev would not insist that nonaggression pact unaccepta Will Relax Now MOBILE, Ala. (UPI) - Mary Reinsch said she considered her 100th birthday Tuesday a milestone because "after 99, I think a woman can relax." ble to the West accompany the test-ban treaty. It had been feared Khrushchev might demand a package deal but U.S. diplomats now expect the nonaggression pact proposal to be deferred. Chief American negotiator W. Averell Harriman, a veteran oE negotiations with Stalin as well as with Khrushchev, stressed to newsmen that treaties are finished only when they are signed. U.S. Secretary of State Dean Rusk told newsmen in Washington: "We think there is a possibility we can get an agreement." Negotiations will continue for a day or two, he said. Western diplomats in Moscow still feared Khrushchev might bring up something that would delay conclusion of the test agreement. Last week he filled the negoti- ational air with supplementary demands for a nonaggression pact between the North Atlantic Alliance and the Communist Warsaw Pact group, for a freeze on military spending, and for a system of inspection teams at airports, railway terminals, ports and highway junctions on both sides of the Iron Curtain to guard against preparations for surprise attack. U.S. sources believed the Russians were willing to defer all these proposals, perhaps to a summit meeting. But they were not sure. The test-ban treaty reportedly follows the lines proposed by the United States and Britain last August at the Geneva disarmament conference. Khrushchev op. posed it then, saying it would tend to legalize underground tests.
