Arvey, left, with an unidentified FBI agent, is shown as he was arraigned in Los Angeles on a charge of possessing counterfeit securities. His father, Col. Jacob Arvey of Chicago, Illinois Democratic National Committeeman and a personal friend of President Kennedy, so far has not issued a statement regarding the matter. UNIFAX Politician's Son Is Released on Bail of $25,000 LOS ANGELES (UPI) — Erwin B. Arvey, 44, son of national Democratic political figure Jacob M. Arvey, was free on $25,000 bail today pending a hearing Oct. 24 on charges he transported $550,000 in counterfeit securities across state lines. Federal Bureau of Investigation agents arrested the younger Arvey Thursday in a Beverly Hills hotel and he was arraigned before U. S. Commissioner John Childress. William G. Simon, special agent in charge of the FBI in Los Angeles, said the son of the Illinois National Democratic Committee member was picked up after he deposited 550 counterfeit General Motors Acceptance Corp. bonds with a local bank after making an application for a $440,000 loan. Each of the bonds carried a cash surrender value of $1,000. < Started in 1961 The FBI said the arrest climaxed a lengthy investigation that started in 1961 when it was learned more than three million counterfeit GMAC bonds at $1,000 face value—carrying a 5 per cent interest rate due in 1980 — were being sold and offered as collateral at banks in California, New York, Florida and Canada. Commissioner Childress originally fixed bail at $100,000, but later reduced it to the $25,000. "You appear to come from an entirely stable background on the face of it," the commissioner told Arvey. But he added, "I can't get over the feeling you may attempt to leave the country, so I'm going to fix bail high." Arvey denied he had any intention to leave the country and said he had no passport. He said he had never been arrested before and that he was on leave as a security salesman. Prelate Scores Exaggerated Devotion to Virgin Mary VATICAN CITY (AP)—An American Roman Catholic prelate asserted today that exaggerated devotions to the Virgin Mary lead only to blasphemy, embarrassment and pathetic deviations on the part of Catholic worshipers. The statement came from Archbishop Paul J. Hallinan of Atlanta, Ga., commenting on concern expressed at the Vatican Ecumenical Council by a group of Latin American prelates on overemphasis of the virgin in their countries. The observations of the Latin American prelates—45 of the almost 900 from that region — has Where to Find It 1 SECTIONS 84 PAGES Abingdon 16 Amusement 6 Busbnell W Churches • Classified Ads 22-23 ComicsTV-Badio 20 Editorial 4 Farm 17 Galva 6 Hospital Notes 21 KwwvtUe 19 Markets 18-19 Monmouth , 5 Obituary 21 Sport* 14-15 Weather % Women in the News —-1041 raised the question of whether the council should proceed with separate study of a thesis on Mary. The thesis—or schema as it is called here—is expected to come before the 2,300 council fathers during this session, scheduled to close Dec. 4. The Latin American group wants it incorporated in "de ec- clesia." The thesis on church redefinition now is being debated in St. Peter's Basilica. They say to place the virgin in a separate area of study might encourage devotional exaggerations. Archbishop Hallinan said he believed a clear statement on the position of the Roman Catholic Church should be made to demonstrate to "those not of our faith that true Catholic life is centered in Christ." Many Protestants look critically at the emphasis given to Mary in some Catholic devotions. Y Y Y • Hurricane Hammers Haiti in Nine - Hour Attack on Island I US Suspends Honduran Relations WASHINGTON (UPI) — All U.S. relations with Honduras were suspended today and officials faced the problem of what to do about the second military regime to appear in Latin America in nine days. As in the military takeover of the Dominican Republic on Sept. 25, all U.S. JFK Trip Is Not Thought Successful LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (UPI) The Arkansas Republican party today seized upon what it said were "disappointing" crowds during President Kennedy's whirlwind tour and claimed he would be in trouble politically in the 6tate in the 1964 presidential campaign. At least one pro-administration Democrat agreed. Another top state Democrat disagreed. William L. Spicer, GOP chairman in Arkansas, said "it was the second time in two years President Kennedy has been in Arkansas and both times he has gotten very disappointing crowds. It again indicates the trouble he may be in politically in our state." State Rep. Hardy Croxton, an unannounced Democratic candidate for governor, said "that (the trip) was very disappointing. I don't think there is any doubt but what the President is in disfavor in Arkansas. I think he has his work cut out for him." The President spoke to 10,000, about-one-third of what officials anticipated, at the dedication of Greers Ferry Dam and returned to Little Rock to address a crowd which officials said was 30,000, but veteran observers placed closer to 10,000. Negroes May Picket Meet Of Mormons SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Negro leaders told officials of the Mormon Church Thursday night that unless they meet certain demands, Negroes might picket the 133rd church conference which opened here today. A spokesman for the Negroes said they want the church to go on record in support of President Kennedy's civil rights program; to back civil rights legislation in Utah, and to endorse "the principle of equality of opportunity for all Americans." A Negro spokesman who attended the meeting, but who declined to be identified by name, said the church officials indicated they were not likely to go along with NAACP demands. Negroes are regarded by the church as descendants of Cain. They are admitted to membership in the church, but are barred from the priesthood, into which members of other races are freely admitted. Officials say any change in church attitude toward the Negro must come as the result of revelation from God. aid disbursements to Honduras have been halted and the new regime has not been recognized by the United States. The State Department was withholding, probably until later today, an official announcement of suspension of relations and aid, but officials said this was done automatically when the Honduran regime fell. The State Department fought a losing battle to prevent the Honduran coup. It even sent a high ranking military figure there in an attempt to dissuade leaders of the Honduran armed forces. On Wednesday — the day before troops surrounded the palace of Honduran President Ramon Villeda Morales and sent him into exile — Maj. Gen. Theodore F. Bogart, commander of the Army section of the U.S. Caribbean Military Command in Panama, was rushed to Tegucigalpa. Bogart met secretly with Col. Osvaldo Lopez, head of the Honduran armed forces, and stated in the "strongest terms" that the U.S. government opposed the planned coup. He emphasized that U.S. military officials shared this view. Tardv Too Often PHILADELPHIA (UPI) - The Civil Service Commission today upheld the firing of a welfare department employe in July, 1962, for being late for work 244 times in five years. The decision came exactly 14 months and 5 days after the commission took the employe's appeal of the dismissal Reject Offer ALGIERS (UPD-Berber mountain fighters who have rebelled against President Ahmed Ben Bella's one-man rule rejected his offer of negotiations to end their uprising today and began building up their defenses. They moved armor plate and barbed wire to their hideouts in the Kabylia Mountains 60 miles east of Algiers. Rebel trucks moved freely within the area, although Ben Bella's troops have cut it off from the rest of Algeria. There has been no bloodshed since the uprising started Sunday, and Ben Bella, in a speech after receiving emergency powers to deal with it Thursday, said "any problems must be discussed within the party and not in the mountains with hands on submachine guns." But the military leader of the insurgents, 65-year-old Col. Mohand Ou El Hadj, was defiant when he talked to newsmen in his hideout Thursday. "We are the last chance for Algeria to get on the path to democracy," he said. "For that, we are ready to sacrifice everything." Aurora Girl Is Sent to Prison For One Year GENEVA, 111. (AP)-Judy Ann Britto, 18, of Aurora, was placed in the Kane County Jail Thursday to begin serving a one-year sentence imposed for a series of traffic violations. She was sentenced in St. Charles Wednesday by Albert S. Gleason, a justice of the peace. It was her second appearance in his court in two weeks. Gleason fined Miss Britto $481 and sentenced her to 10 days in jail Sept. 16 when she pleaded guilty to U traffic violations. He threatened a more severe sentence if she appared in his court again. Both appearances were on traffic violation charges resulting from police chases started when Miss Britto was discovered outside the jail shouting to its inmates, 'Ik. uirln. W o ft s HEADING NORTHWARD—After hammering Haiti for nine hours today, Hurricane Flora moved into Cuba where its force was expected to be reduced and probably to keep it from becoming a threat to the United States. The map shows the general direction the storm has taken and areas in its path. UNIFAX New Ban on 4 A' Blasts Extent of Damage Not Yet Learned MIAMI, Fla. (AP) — Hurricane Flora hammered W Haiti with 140-mile-an-hour winds for nine hours today, isolated the Negro nation from the world and thrashed on toward eastern Cuba and the heart of the Bahama was Islands. V When the wild night finally ended, defenseless Haiti still was being pounded by Ample Supply Of Sugar But Prices Soar UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (AP)— A new East-West agreement in principle to outlaw nuclear-armed space satellites. will be translated soon into a public U.S.­ Soviet pledge, U.S. diplomatic sources predicted today. "Agreement on policy . . . against nuclear weapons in orbit," was announced by Secretary of State Dean Rusk, Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei A. Gromyko and British Foreign Secretary Lord Home Thursday night as they wound up a week of talks. Gromyko has an appointment with President Kennedy next Thursday. He is expected to talk with Kennedy and Rusk in Washington about this and other possible follow-ups to the limited nuclear test ban treaty, plus items of direct concern between the United States and Russia. The Big Three foreign ministers put off for later negotiation the earth-bound disarmament plans on which they have been unable to agree. These plans, including a proposed East-West nonaggres- sion pact and observer exchange, got tangled up with the thorny Germany-Berlin issue and have yet to be sorted out. But in a joint four-sentence com­ munique, the three saw potential j accord in space. WASHINGTON (UPI) - Sugar prices have been rising in recent weeks in spite of "more than ample" supplies and prospects for record year-end stocks in this country, the Agriculture Department said today. The department said most of the U.S. price rise came after Sept. 16 when the Soviet Union announced it would purchase $500 million worth of wheat from Canada. "This news spurred the advance in sugar values on the theory that if the grain crop was damaged, the (Soviet) sugarbeet crop also may have suffered," the department said. Government experts noted, however, in a sugar market review that on Sept. 25 a Soviet sugar industry journal reported that Russian beet sugar factories would have greater supplies than a year ago. The department said that sugar inventories at the end of the year may reach 3.5 million tons, and will be swelled by domestic production of another 250,000 tons shortly after next Jan. 1. Stocks on hand at the beginning of 1963 were 2.75 million tons, the highest on record for the date up to that time. In the face of this supply situation, the department said, prices for raw sugar have risen from 6.5 cents a pound a month ago to 8.02 cents Sept. 25 and 8.5 cents Oct. 2. Drunks Are Sobered BUDAPEST, Hungary (UPI) Hungarians arrested for drunkenness are to be put into a bathtub filled with "fresh, cold water," the newspaper Nepszava said today. torrential rains and destruc tive floods almost certainly were raging down her mountainsides. A sad story was expected to come from this thickly-populated tropic country when communications are re-established. Forecasters were worried also about what is yet to come. Forecasters said there is no threat to the U.S. mainland, about 500 miles away, for at least two days, if at all. The night-long battle with Haiti's mountains took some of the punch out of Flora, most vicious hurricane in two years. Its top winds had fallen from 140 to 115 miles an hour when it left Haiti behind and moved into the narrow windward passage. It still was a well-organized storm, however, and once through the passage and into the open Atlantic could quickly regain strength. A slowing in the forward move* through the mountains of Cuba's etsernmost Oriente Province and into the British Bahamas. The big U.S. Navy base at Guantanamo Bay, a thorn in the side of Fidel Castro's Commu nist island, was expected to come through the storm in good shape A hurricane's winds whirl in a counter-clockwise direction, which means that Guantanamo, just west of the storm center's path, is being blasted from the northeast, and on that side "Git- mo" is shielded by a mountain range. But Cubans might not fare so well. The National Weather Bureau of Cuba warned residents of Oriente to take "extreme measures" to protect themselves, especially in the low-lying zones of the North Coast. Exiles from the Castro regime have reported that the Russians have a huge submarine base and other military installations in Oriente. The Miami weather bureau said that if the hurricane continues on its present projected course, it would affect the major part of the Bahamas Island chain from Mayaguana up through the major islands of Eleuthera and Exuma. The capital city of Nassau, on New Providence Island, lies far enough to the west of this path to appear out of the danger zone, lijf An 8 a.m. (EST) bulletin from ™ the Miami weather bureau placed the storm center near latitude. 19.5 north, longitude 74.6 west, or about 40 miles southeast of Guantanamo Bay and 160 miles west- northwest of Port Au Prince, cap-' ital of Haiti. It was moving toward the northwest at 12 miles an hour. The field of hurricane winds had shrunk after the clash with mountainous land. Blasts of hurricane force pounded outward 35, miles to the northeast and 20 miles to the southwest of the center. Gales swept an area almost 300 miles in diameter. The Navy sent aircraft from Guantanamo Bay to shelter as far distant as Jacksonville, Fla. North Alaska y FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) - A storm packing winds of better than 80 miles an hour wrecked homes and fuel supplies at Barrow, the most northern settlement in North America, Thursday. One man was reported injured and he was released after treatment. State Sen. Eben Hopson told Gov. William A. Egan the loss would exceed $250,000. Others indicated it would run much higher. At least 29 homes were destroyed and a number of military and civilian aircraft were wrecked. Many persons were evacuated to higher ground. The Red Cross planned to fly relief supplies and personnel into Barrow today. Clear and fairly mild weather was reported across most other parts of the nation. Soraya Buys Art MUNICH, Germany (UPI) — Princess Soraya, ex-empress of Iran, paid nearly $25,000 Thursday for valuable paintings at the traditional fall auctions here. Most expensive of Soraya's purchases was "The Angler" by 19th century German painter Karl Spitzweg, which cost $20,000. CONGENIAL—Russia's Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko, left, aud Dean Rusk, U.
