"As you all know, mere lip service was paid to this policy of nonalignment by the now-deposed tyrant and dictator," An- krah said in a nationwide broadcast. The new government ordered Soviet and Red Chinese technicians and advisers—estimated to number about 1,200—out of the country. Hundreds leave daily. At least 11 Soviets were among the estimated 30 persons killed in the revolution that overthrew Nkrumah last week. Most were security advisers who helped train the elite presidential guard. Two high officials under Nkrumah went to the Soviet Embassy following the coup Police later seized them, and the embassy declined to comment on the matter. Ankrah was angry with the Soviet government Aeroflot Airline for flying Nkrumah from Peking to Moscow and canceled Aeroflot's landing rights in Accra. Nkrumah before he was overthrown denied Western charges that he was allied with the Communist bloc- Ghana, he claimed, was a nonaligned socialist state following the precepts of "Nfcru- mahism." Despite this, Nkrumah's steady criticism of "colonialism, neocolonialism and imperialism" was a sweeping attack on almost all Western institutions. America's foreign policy, economic practices, educational system and cultural life were described in the blackest possible s&^3£ by the government- trolled press and radio. Ghana's 7.3 million people probably received more U.S. aid per capita than those of any other African state, many of which were pro-Western. Some African governments were puzzled and irritated by this. The Soviet Union and Red China also poured much aid in. However, it was almost all in the form of technical assistance and barter deals, with Ghanaian cocoa being exchanged for East bloc machinery, processed foods and consumer goods.

(AP)—The state claims telephone calls fom Melvin Powers to his aunt, Candace Mossier, are a vital clue in the 1954 slaying of her multimillionaire husband. A jury at the first - degree murder trial of aunt and nephew heard the prosecution emphasize a phone call Powers made from Houston to Miami less than 15 hours before the slaying of Jacques Mossier, 69. "This defendant at the time was making his arrangements with Candace Mossier to come to Miami and commit the deed that occurred at 1:45 a.m. June 30, 1964," the state charged at trial summations Wednesday. Then, the prosecution went on, Mrs. Mossier received phone calls from Powers after her "lusband's slaying "to tell her it's all over with, she can go back to the apartment now." The sensational first - degree murder trial was expected to gc to the all-male jury befor e sundown today. The trial began Jan. 17. State Atty. Richard Gerstein was to close the state's summation. Following him is Houston attorney Percy Foreman, whose fee for "the.defense is 5200,000. Keep Up With Sports In The Sun Mrs. Mossier, blonde grandmother who gives her age as 40, and her nephew, Powers, 29, have been depicted by the state as involved in a sordid love affair which, the state says, was the motive for the bludgeoning and stabbing of her husband, owner of a 533-miilion banking and loan empire. Clyde Woody, chief counsel for Mrs. Mossier, declared Wednesday the state "hasn't produced enough evidence here even for a divoce case." "It dosn't take a trained police officer, a trained homicide officer, to ascertain that this was the act of a homosexual," Woody told the jury. This was in line with the defense contention that Mossier was sexually suspect and could have fallen prey to a homosexual companion. as missing.
