It said thousands of Chinese were lured or forced into the Soviet Union and are still there. Furthermore, the blast over Peking Radio charged that Premier Khrushchev in 1958 "put forward unreasonable demands designed to bring China under Soviet military control." These demands were not explained. But Peking was more specific about what it says has been going on in Sinkiang, the remote province in northwest China where Moscow in 1950 won the right to exploit various minerals including uranium, used in the manufacture of nuclear weapons. Admit Chinese A Chinese language version said the Russians admitted tens of thousands of Chinese into Soviet territory last year in an attempt to overthrow the Chinese administration of 111, a district in Sinki­ ang. Presumably they would be used as a fifth column in Hi, once controlled by czarist Russia. An English language broadcast, however, spoke of Soviet subversive activity in Hi and called it an example of "how the leaders of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union have sabotaged chi- nese-Soviet unity." "In April and May, 1962," Peking said in the English broad- United States Apparently Will Seek Saigon Reforms WASHINGTON (AP)-The United States intends to press firmly for policy reforms by the government of South Viet Nam even though it has evidently failed in its drive to oust strongman Ngo Dinh Nhu. The past two weeks Nhu had been the target of considerable criticism from Washington, the chief immediate complaint being that he was responsible for attacks on Buddhist temples and widespread arrests of Buddhist monks and nuns and demonstrating students who supported the Buddhist opposition to the Diem government. In an exclusive interview with The Associated Press in Saigon Thursday, President Diem said his government considers the Buddhist crisis to be a closed incident now and he predicted better relations between Viet Nam and the United States. In a separate meeting with a number of foreign correspondents in the Vietnamese capital, Nhu, who is head of the Vietnamese secret police, said he did not intend to retire. Only three days earlier President Kennedy had said in a public statement that the government of South Viet Nam had "got­ ten out of touch with the people" and lacked the popular support necessary for it to win its war against Communist guellilas. For years, the guerrillas have terrorized the countryside in a struggle to take over South Viet Nam. Early last week there was considerable confidence here that pressures then operating against the Diem government would result in radical changes in, Saigon. There were persistent rumors of a possible coup by Vietnamese military leaders. U.S. officials generally made no secret of their desire to see Nhu removed from the government. There apparently was some hope here that Diem would find some other position for his brother, Nbu. Niw, however, Washington quarters have concluded that the two men are inseparable and there is no prospect of any top personnel change in the regime. The Diem government is dependent on the United States for its survival in the war against the Communist Viet Cong. That support is now running at the rate of more than a million dollars a day and includes the presence in South Viet Nam of 14,000 American military men. cast, "the CPSU used their organs and personnel in Sinkiang, China, to carry out large-scale subversive activities in the Hi region and enticed and coerced several tens of thousands of Chinese citizens into going to the Soviet Union." Ignored Protests It said Peking lodged repeated protests but that Russia had refused to repatriate them on the "pretext of the 'sense of Soviet legality' and 'humanitarianism.' " It added that "to this day, this incident remains unsettled." The border between the Soviet Union and China in Sinkiang is ill-defined and there have been repeated conflicts there. The latest charges were in a 30,000-word attack on Khrushchev and the Soviet party published in the official Peking People's Daily, and the theoretical organ, Red Flag. The article seemed to bear the stamp of Mao Tze-tung himself. First portions of the article broadcast by Peking Thursday said Soviet-Chinese relations have reached "the brink of a split" and the differences in the international Communist movement have reached "a new stage of unprecedented gravity." Vietnamese Want Custody Of Priests SAIGON, South Viet Nam (UPI) —The Vietnamese government demanded today that the United States hand over three Buddhist priests who took refuge in the American embassy here last Sunday, diplomatic sources said. The three priests included Thich Tri Quang, who is reported to have masterminded the Buddhist protest movement against the government of President Ngo Dinh Diem. The sources said the demand was made in a formal aide-mem­ oire from the Vietnamese Foreign Office. U.S. embassy representative William Truehart was summoned to the Foreign Office and was handed the demand. Rail Arbitration Board Clears Deck for Action WASHINGTON (UPI) -Chairman Ralph T. Seward of the new railroad arbitration board said today he hoped to confer with Labor Secretary W. Willard Wirtz before scheduling hearings on two key issues in the rail rules dispute. Seward and two other professional neutrals—Benjamin Aaron and James J. Healy — were picked Thursday by President Kennedy to serve on the special board under the first peacetime compulsory arbitration law. To Eye Firemen Joined by two representatives each from rail labor and management, they will decide whether firemen are needed on diesel locomotives in yard or freight service, and the proper size of train crews. Seward, a former member of the War Labor Board and now impartial umpire for Bethlehem Steel and the Steelworkers. said he had no fixed plans yet for the arbitration process. The law calls for the board to begin its consideration of the issues within 30 days from Aug. 28 and issue a decision 60 days later. It will take effect in another 60 days. Wirtz arranged a meeting at 3 p.m., EDT, today with representatives of the carriers and five rail unions to discuss resumption of bargaining on so- called secondary issues in the four-year-old dispute. Other Issues On matters involving the pay PICKS PROF «- President Kennedy, a graduate of Harvard, selected Prof. James J. Healy of Harvard as one of the arbitrators to decide key issues in the dispute between railroads and employes. UNIFAX system, yard and road crew jurisdiction, runs between devision crew-changing points and other issues, the law provides for renewed negotiations. The law, rushed through Congress and signed by Kennedy hours before a threatened nationwide rail strike, makes no provision for a deadlock on the secondary issues. Farmall Strike Is Called Off At Rock Island ROCK ISLAND, 111. (UPI) A wildcat strike at the Farmall Works of International Harvester ended Thursday following a meeting between union and company officials. The union did not condone the strike and would take steps to prevent a recurrence, the spokesman added. The workers, members of the United Auto Workers Local 1309, had walked off the job Tuesday. Pickets which had marched around the plant were removed prior to the start of Thursday's meeting. The company employs 4,527 persons, of which all but 700 are UAW members, the spokesman said. 75 TODAY—Joseph P. Kennedy, father of the President, is noting the 75th anniversary of his birth today. He is still fighting the effects of a stroke that has restricted hi- speech and made writing impossible. UNIFAX Market Hits Highest Mark, Ticker Shows By JESSE BOGUE UPI Financial Editor NEW YORK (UPI)—Wall Street found itself at a heady new altitude today. By almost any popularly understood average, the market in listed stocks stood at a new high. The steps by which any stairs are built in this area — earnings and dividends of the companies whose securities are listed on the exchange — had been climbing in this direction 'for months. Whether they had climbed to merely a landing, or whether they had led to a solid floor from which further ascent was possible, was almost a secondary consideration. At least overnightly, the community which deals in dollar signs could feel that it had accomplished something. It had seen two indexes — the numerical, counterparts of the lines of mercury in clinical thermometers used to measure temperature — break into new high ground in trading on Thursday. One of these was the venerable and venerated Dow Jones average of 30 industrial stocks. It closed at 737.98, up 5.06 for the day and 3.07 higher than the 734.91 it reached Dec. 13, 1961. The other was the younger, but generally regarded as broader- based, Standard & Poor's index of 500 stocks. It had made one new record level on Tuesday, when it closed at 72.66. Thursday, it gained another 0.36 from Wednesday to close at a new high of 73.00. S&P can back up with breakdowns by groupings that .it represents 86 per cent of the market value of all common stocks listed on the New York Stock Exchange. Heavy trading for three days, almost of the bandwagon type in the last half-hour Thursday, had helped put these indexes at their new levels. It was the kind of trading relished by the 'bulls," or those who wish to see a rising market: it was heavy trading on the upside. Helicopters Fly to Aid Tower Crews CHATHAM, Mass. (AP) - A squadron of five Navy helicopters was ordered today to evacua le 31 men from Texas Towers II and III being dismantled off Cape Cod. The towers were reported being buffeted by strong winds and stormy seas. The Coast Guard at Boston said it asked Navy help upon receipt of a request from Lipsett, Inc., to remove the men. Lipsett is dismantling the two towers, once part of the Air Defense Early Warning system. Texas Tower II is 110 miles southeast of Cape Cod and Tower III 60 miles southeast of Chatham. Using Boats Meanwhile three Coast Guard surface vessels were en route to the towers. The Coast Guard said the Navy expected to complete the job in four hours from the time the choppers leave Quonset. A helicopter, sent Thursday night to remove the workmen, failed to reach the tower. It lost its bearings in the stormy weather, couldn't find the tower and just made it back to Chatham Airport on outer Cape Cod with only enough fuel for 15 minutes flying time. Meanwhile, the tower, buffeted by 40-mile-ari-hour winds, seemed to sway precariously. Experienced hands said swaying is normal in high winds. But ever-present was the memory of a winter storm in 1961 in which a Texas tower off New Jersey collapsed with loss of 28 men. Mothers Push Past Troopers With Children Flights Are Off MANILA (UPI) — Three international airlines canceled flights to Manila today because of a strike by more than 2,000 workers of Philippines Air Lines demanding higher wages plus fringe benefits. Pan American World Airways, Northwest Orient Airlines and Qantas Empire Airways called off their flights. • Bushnell Opens Town and Country Festival: Page 15 • Western Illinois Farm Tour Draws Nearly 1,000 People: See Page 13 Report Where To Find It 2 SECTIONS 24 PAGES Abingdon 15 Amusement 6 Bushnell 15 Churches 9 Classified Ads 22-23 Comics-TV-Radio 20 Editorial 4 Farm 13-14 Galva 6 Hospital Notes 6 Knoxvillc 24 Markets 18 Monmouth 5 Obituary 21 Sports 16-17 Weather 2 Women in the News 10-11 Ignore Order Of Governor On Closing HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) - A group of determined mothers defied the powers of Gov. George C. Wallace and his state troopers today and marched their children into a school that the chief executive had ordered closed for the day. About 25 women turned a deaf ear to an advisory by a trooper that East Clinton Grammar School was closed. They walked up the steps and marched their broods into the building through lines of troopers who yielded. "Don't hurt them; don't hurt them! Let them go in," came a booming message over the state highway patrol loudspeaker system at the scene. They went in. They were not hurt. Send for Help A call for reinforcements went out and in a few minutes a Hon- 1 ble lino of troopers again barred entry to the school. Two of the men stood against the door. At Fifth Avenue School, another of the four ordered desegregated by federal courts, the first Negro lad trying to enter a Hunts- villc public elementary school was turned back by troopers. He was S. W. Hereford IV. His father was one of the plaintiffs in the federal court case. The temporary breach of the Wallace line at East Clinton was not repeated at the other schools. An aide to Wallace telephoned Joe Payne, attorney for the Hunfsville Board of Education, and said the closure would be for one day only. The governor's office said Wallace is a strong supporter of education and that his action was caused by unusual circumstances which he said existed in Alabama. Resentful At the other schools, the troopers ran into resentment on the part of parents. One woman wanted to know, "What would you do if wo broke through?" Troopers ignored the question. Wallace contends ho can close public schools by an executive order siirh as that he issued early today affecting Htintsville under broad police [lowers written into state law. The statutes, however, do not clearly outline his authority in such matters. The bluo-shirted troopers stationed themselves in front of the schools early in the day. They advised children, and parents, that their walks from home had been useless. Cuba Charges U. S. Planes Bomb Home in Air Attack HAVANA (UPI) — The Castro government charged today that two twin-engined planes escorted by two jets bombed a home in Santa Clara early Thursday, kill ing a government employe and wounding three of his four children.- An armed forces communique blamed the United States for the attack. "A repetition of this attack could cause serious incidents," the communique said. "The government of Cuba is not disposed to tolerate such acts of piracy against our people." (The planes presumably were flown by anti-Castro refugees, perhaps from the bases in Central America where they have been reported preparing for operations against Fidel Castro's revolutionary regime.) The armed forces ministry said the two planes which dropped the bombs — presumably propeller driven craft, although the com munique did not say so specifical ly—were detected over Santa Clara, capital of Las Villas Province in central Cuba, about 4 a.m., Thursday. The planes fled when they were fired on by antiaircraft batteries at an airbase near the city, the communique said. "In their escape, they dropped explosive objects in several places," tho official statement said. "One fell on the home in Santa Clara of Comrade Fabric Aquilar Noriega, a teacher employed by the Armed Forces Ministry in the city, who died. Three of his four children were wounded." The wounded children were identified as Francisco, 5, Sofia, 3, and Abraham, 2. Party Girl Is Released On High Bond LONDON (AP)-Christine Keeler, sex symbol of Britain's scandal of the century, spent the night in jail and then made bond today on charges that she lied at the trial of a discarded Negro lover. The 21-year-old playgirl looked pale but composed as she stood in court with three other defendants—two women friends and a West Indian man. Detectives arrested them Thursday night. Miss Keeler heard the court set her bond at a relatively whopping 3,000 pounds ($8,400). Christine was hit with four charges of perjury and conspiracy to obstruct justice in the case of Aloysius (Lucky) Gordon, her ex-lover. Negro Baptists Are Picked hy Racial Groups CLEVELAND (AP) - The 83rd annual meeting of the National Baptist Convention, USA., Inc., which claims five million Negroes as members, was picketed Thursday by members of the Congress of Racial Equality. A half dozen picketers outside Public Hall distributed leaflets criticizing what they called slow methods of striving for civil rights by Dr. J.II. Jackson of Chicago, president of the church. White House Set Awakens Entire City WASHINGTON (AP)-Booming sonic bursts of nighttime fireworks at the White House entertained President Kennedy's guests but kept police busy explaining the aerial blasts to worried residents in the capital area. After the first colorful rocket exploded with a crescendo about 11:20 Thursday night, police said they started getting a barrage of telephone calls. When the 15-minute display in honor of the king and queen of Afghanistan had ended, police clocked close to 1,000 calls. The switchboards of Washington newspaper offices were flooded. Most callers said they thought there had been an explosion or bomb burst. When they learned the noisemaking came from White House fireworks, a few disgruntled residents said it shouldn't have been done at that time of night. But, for President Kennedy, King Mohammed Zahir, Queen Homaira and the 115 other guests watching from balconies and the south lawn of the White House, it was an exciting bit of after-dinner entertainment. READY TO EAT-PresMeot Kennedy and bis guests, King Mohammed Zahir and Queen Homaria of Afghanistan, posed for photographers Thursday night at the White House prior to * stale dinner. Shortly before midnight the Ken. nedys staged a fireworks display that caused thousands to call police, newspaper offices and others, fearful that a catastrophe bad occurred. UNIFAX
