[ Homt Paper oft Communiti«f A Bettor Nanpaptr Weather Stripe Slue Cooler Tonight and Tuesday, Low in 80s, Maximum In Low 70t VOLUME LXXII GALESBURG, ILLINOIS — MONDAY, OCTOBER 7, 1963 PRICE SEVEN CENTS A iiway WASHINGTON (AP) — The House Appropriations Committee today voted deep slashes in the nation's civil defense, space and science programs. Among other things, it turned down the entire $195 million asked for a nationwide fallout shelter program. In a bill financing 26 executive agencies and offices, the committee approved only $13,102,818,700 of the $14,658,588,000 requested by President Kennedy for the present fiscal year. But even with the $1,555,769,300 cut, the bill's total as it went to the House floor for consideration later this week was $1,233,067,400 higher than the same agencies received last year. Less for Space The National Aeronautics and Space Administration was allotted $5.1 billion of the $5,712,000,000 the President had originally requested. Congress itself, in a separate authorization act, previously had cut the program more than $400 million. The committee was held to the authorization ceiling. The amount recommended for the space program was $1,425,885,000 more than Congress provided last year. Most of the mon­ ey approved was earmarked for research and development. An effort to cut the space agency funds further will be made on the house floor. Rep. Louis C. Wyman, R-N.H., called for additional reductions of $700 million, mainly in the program to send a manned space vehicle to the moon. The Veterans Administration's share of the funds was $5,372,430,000, almost the entire amount requested and a slight increase over last year. It included $1,075,186,000 to operate 121,486 hospital beds, and $3,921,000,000 for compensation and pension payments. The committee rejected the entire $195 million requested to finance a nationwide fallout shelter program which the House overwhelmingly authorized — but did not finance—last month. The Senate has not acted on the authorization bill. For all civil defense programs, including those now in operation, the President requested $346.9 million. The committee slashed this to $87.8 million. \ Rpes Out Crops In Many Places MIAMI, Pla. (AP) — Hurricane Flora lashed Cuba today for the fourth day in a row, dealing a crushing blow to the already staggering economy of Fidel Castro's Communist regime. Half of the island's sugar, rice, coffee, cotton and cocoa crops were reported wiped out by the wind and the torrential rain, and Flora was far from through with Mine.

(UPI) — Cuba announced today that it will not sign the Moscow nuclear test ban treaty until the United States changes its policy toward Fidel Castro's government. Cuban Ambassador Carlos Lechuga, in a policy speech prepared for delivery in the General Assembly, said also that Castro's government would oppose a de­ nuclearized zone for Latin America unless the United States gave up its Guantanamo Bay base and included the Panama Canal Zone, Puerto Rico and other military bases in the hemisphere in any such agreement.

In an address opening the National Assembly, Diem said the Communist Viet Cong faces the "eventuality of an inescapable defeat." He also told his hand-picked assembly, in which there are no opposition parties, that South Viet Nam's Buddhist "problem" had been settled. His regime's recent crackdown on the Buddhists is to be debated in the U.N. General r Assembly, beginning this afternoon. Critical of Others Speaking while police enforced maximum security regulations in downtown Saigon, Diem said: As the 100-mile-an-hour storm —which already has taken more than 400 lives—moved into Cuba for the second time, the Bahama Islands came once more into range and Florida was threatened Storm Stalls In her first thrust into Cuba Friday, Flora gave signs that she would thrash on northward into the Bahamas.

Kennedy, in a ten-minute ceremony in the historic Treaty Room of the White House, said the agreement to ban all but underground nuclear tests was "great with ph>mise" and marks a beginning that could lead to further and in Florida-Bahama waters.

I*» council fathers have voiced fear that the concept endangers papal supremacy. Disputes Spellman Another highlight of today's debate was a vigorous rebuttal by Julius Cardinal Deopfner, liberal archbishop of Munich, Germany, of a speech delivered last week by Francis Cardinal Spellman of New York. Spellman had attacked a provision in the document on the church now before the council which would permit the ordination of married deacons in missionary territories which have a shortage of priests. Doepfner disputed Spellman 's contention that the of priestly celibacy. He said the deacons would be carefully chosen to meet special circumstances and would not be merely *'second class priests without the obligation of celibacy."

Gives Warning Guiseppe Cardinal Siri of Genoa was the only conservative cardinal to take part in today's debate, and he acknowledged the desirability of some council recognition of the importance of the College of Bishops. But he warned that the bishops have no existence as a joint body and no power "except in union with the Roman pontiff." Cardinal Leger said that no one should be afraid that the enhanced role of the bishops would in any way weaken the doctrine of papal primacy* Red Chinese Interpreter Seeks Asylum TOKYO (UPI) — An interpreter for a Communist Chinese scien* tific delegation climbed over the wall of the Soviet Embassy be. fore dawn today and asked for political asylum, diplomatic sources reported. The Japanese Foreign Office identified the defector as Chou Hong-ching, 44, who came here with the delegation last month for an international conference on oil pressure machinery. The sources said Chou made his way to the Soviet Embassy about 4 a.m. today, climbed over the seven-foot concrete wall, and asked Soviet officials for asylum. Airline sources said five members of the delegation left for home today but three others, including the leader, remained in Tokyo, One report identified Chou as a member of the faculty at Peking Industrial University. Soviet and Chinese spokesmen declined comment on the defection, the second of a Peking official in recent days. In Moscow, Communist sources said Sunday that Chou Hising-pu, second secretary of the Peking Embassy in London, had elected to stay in the Soviet capital with his wife and two children. Chou arrived in Moscow several weeks ago, ostensibly on hi* way home, but he did not continue his (trip to China.
