Authorities announced shortly afterward that nine of them had been taken into custody, seven in New York and two elsewhere. Head of the gigantic operation was Harry Stromberg, 54, who was the ring's "over-all director',' for more than 25 years, according to a government spokesman. $3Vi Million Shipment The dope syndicate imported heroin, cocaine and opium into this country from France and other countries, and on at least one occasion it smuggled 'n about 50 pounds of pure heroin valued on the illicit market at 3 l A million dollars, according to U. S. Attorney Paul W. Williams. The indictment was. returned Aug. 27, sealed and opened Wednesday in the chambers of Federal District Judge Edward Weinfeld. . The ring used many "underhanded" methods in its operations and an untold number of customs inspectors were "corrupted" by it, in agreeing to facilitate the smuggling of narcotics through the Port of New York, Williams declared. Those inspectors have since been discharged, he added. They were not identified, Fantastic Prices A list of defendants released in Washington by the Justice Department named three as former customs inspectors. They were listed as Herman Samnick of Queens, N.Y., Benjamin Danis of Brooklyn and Saul Snyder of Queens. The Washington list said Sam- nick formerly was stationed at Idlewild Airport. It did not name the stations of the other two, The huge ring bought, distributed, and sold the narcotics at fantastic prices, after the dope's arrival here, the U. S. attorney said. He added that the narcotics were distributed in New York, Washington, D.C., Illinois, Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania, California, Massachusetts and other places. So far, nine of those indicted have been taken into custody, Williams said. Stromberg, the alleged kingpin, has not yet been apprehended.

The twin-jet TU104 flew here (10m Moscow, stopped 2 hours and 25 minutes for refueling, then took off for Keflavik, Iceland. First In 20 Years From Keflavik it will fly to Gander, Nfld., and then on to McGuire Air Force Base in New Jersey. It will be the first Russian plane to land in the United Slates in 20 years. The 5,570-mile Moscow-to-Me- Guire flight was expected to take about 18 hours total flying time. The last Russian aircraft to visit the United States — a military plane in 1937—made a 6,200-mile flight in 62 hours, flying over the North Pole. There were conflicting reports of the number of persons aboard the TU104. A Moscow radio broadcast said 60 passengers boarded the plane but a news dispatch from the Soviet capital said there were 19 and a crew of 12, including three Britons. A Transport Ministry official at London Airport said the plane carried 36 passengers. Some passengers stayed aboard during the refueling stop in London, making an accurate count difficult. Most of those aboard were translators and minor officials of the Soviet delegation to tember 19, Lowell Schleisman resi-j,h e _u : N. General Assembly.

MV-National guardsmen called out by Gov. Orval Faubus Wednesday forcibly prevented racial integration of Central High School and Faubus insisted at a news conference later that he is not defying a Federal Court order. The grim-faced soldiers, armed with rifles and carbines, turned back nine Negro students who tried to enroll at the 2,000-pupil all-white school. Control Jeering Crowd The troops controlled a disorderly crowd which jeered the Negroes, who were led by a well- dressed unidentified white man. Faubus maintained that his only purpose in calling out 250 white guardsmen Monday night was to "maintain peace and order." Referring to a decision by Federal Judge Ronald Davies Tuesday night ordering the Little Rock School Board to "proceed forthwith with integration" despite the presence of troops around the school, Faubus said Wednesday: "The governor of the state is tha preservator of peace, not a federal judge." Asked why local and state police could not deal with violence, if it occurred, Faubus said that "It is better to preserve peace than to quell disorders." An aide said Faubus had received about 500 telegrams since his mobilization of troops. More than 98 per cent favored the move, the governor's aide said. Faubus said at his news conference that Negroes were stopped Wednesday morning under his order?. The off-again, on-again integration of Central was an uncertain issue as classes began Wednesday. The state branch of the National Assn. for the Advancement of Colored People, after learning that the school board has given the green light to Negro students again Tuesday night, announced some would try to enroll. A crowd of some 300 whites milled about in front of the school shouting such phrases as "Nigger go back where you belong" but the whites made no attempt to harm the Negroes. Maj. Gen. Sherman T. Clinger, Arkansas adjutant general, said the guardsmen, all whites, were acting on the governor's orders. "Gov. Faubus has declared Central High off limits to Negroes," Clinger told newsmen. An unaccompanied 15-year-old Negro girl made the first attempt to cross through a line of about 200 soldiers standing shoulder-to- shoulder. As she repeatedly attempted to pass through the formation, an atjmed guardsman stepped forward and silently turned her back. 1 She was followed a few minutes, later by a Negro boy, also 15, who walked up to the guardsmen but made no attempt to pass. The Negroes were led by a well- dressed white man, who could not immediately be identified. The crowd of whites, which doit- Integration See Page 9 Lr.
