MILKS HAVANA (AP)—Fidel Castro has bound a third of the Cuban sugar crop—the cornerstone of the country's shaky economy—to the Communist bloc. For the next five years Cuba has agreed to supply the Soviet Union and Red China 1% million tons of sugar annually out of a harvest that this year is set at 5.700,000 tons. Shipments to other Communist countries will bring the total Cuban sugar going behind the Iron Curtain to nearly two million tons a year. The Soviets also have bought the 700,000 tons of sugar "President Eisenhower cut from ^Cuba's 1960 sales to the United States. The Castro deals with the Communists are largely on a barter basis pegged to world prices. The United States long has been Cuba's best customer at premium prices of 2 to 2V4 cents a pound above the < -Id market price. The Soviet Union pays the world pj and Red China presumably will do likewise. Maj. Ernesto Guevara, the Red- leaning president of the Cuban National Bank, signed a five-year pact with a Peiping trade mission Saturday night to supply Red China a half million tons of sugar a year. The terms were along the toes of the earlier agreement to send the Soviet Union a million tons a year. The Oman-Soviet pact led to the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries. The trade agreement with Red China is expected to follow the same course, making Cuba the £rst nation ; the Western Hemisphere to recognize the Peiping regime. Animal Aid Group To Discuss Budget Need for a stepped-up budget program will be discussed Wed- oesday night at 7:30 when Alton .'Area Animal Aid Assn. meets at Hotel Stratford. Following a special board of directors meeting last week, need for more income lor operation Of the AAAAA Animal Shelter was ndted in the budget. With addition of the new dog control officer from the Alton Police Department, the animal population at the East Delmar Shelter House, continues to increase. Expenses of food, maintenance, utilities and additions continue to mount up at the shelter, without any increase in income to the group. Albert Marth, treasurer, has announced the following budget: Salaries, $150; utilities, $50; loan payment, $110; property, $100; food bill, $200; medical, $75; repairs and maintenance, $50. This yields a total monthly operating budget of $735. With the City of Alton's payment of $250 deducted from this total, the monthly deficit remaining to be made up by other means is $485. This must be provided monthly if the AAAAA's are to continue operation, according to Allen Riehl, publicity spokesman. Sources of revenue at present are memberships, donations from those receiving pets, and special fund raising projects. Fund raising cannot be counted on, and U only Ui^J in emergency, ho said, while maintenance eo&tb arc increasing daily at the shelter, with the addition of several new buildings and fencing. 9-Hour Marriage End* in Death iday 85-90; j low 70s. low tonight in the Johnson Says, _ , , _ ^ I Extended Forecast No Politics In Congress JOHNSON CITY, Tex. (AP) — Lyndon B. Johnson, the Senate majority leader and Democratic vice presidential candidate, says he does not believe Congress will be a sounding board for party platforms or a campaign stump to promote candidacies when it reconvenes Aug. 8. He believes Congress will stick to its unfinished business and have a short, but productive session, the Texan told a news conference Sunday at his LBJ Ranch near here. Republicans have been taunting the Democrats to enact laws putting their strong civil rights plank and other proposals adopted by the Democratic National Convention into effect during the upcoming session. "A platform is drawn up for submission to the voters," Johnson said. "If the voters approve of it they will make their decision known in November and it is the duty of the party to carry out the decision in the following confesses. He reaffirmed his support of the Democratic party platform, saying "I intend to run on the platform." Johnson, who returned Saturday night from a vacation in Acapulco, Mexico, talked by phone with the presidential nominee, Sen. John F. Kennedy of Massachusetts. He said he and Kennedy will discuss Congress' work and campaign plans when they confer at j Hyannis Port, Mass., Aug. 1 or 2. I RB47 Pilot's En Route ^ To Temperatures will average near normal.

With the port of Matadi again functioning, oil for lieopoldville and its big airlift airbase was being pumped through a pipeline and also was arriving by tank cars over the repaired railway line. Maj. Gen. Raymond A. Wheeler, retired U. S. Army engineer who directed the clearing of the Suez Canal in 1956, arrived to help with oil operations at Matadi and for a troubleshooting job on the land transportation system. The U.N. also expected the early arrival of pilots from Sweden. Norway. Brazil. Argentina and Yugoslavia to fly a special U.N. aircraft fleet. The U. S. Air Force handed over the fleet of planes, including helicopters, and small aircraft, but refused to furnish air crews. The |the Alton area attended the first general Sunday school teachers convention of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod in St. Louis, July 22-24. A total of 2.600 Sunday school teachers from throughout the United States and Canada attended the three days of general sessions, workshop meetings, and group conferences. . The convention opened with .a Friday evening rally In the Kell Opera House at which Dr. Oswald Haffmann, Lutheran Hour speaker and public relations director of the Missouri Synod, spoke on "Relations That Count." Dr. Richard R. Caemmerer, professor of homiletics at Concordia Seminary in St. Louis, spoke on the convention theme "Workers Together with God." Heavy Rain Hits, Mercury Drops Heavy rain shortly after 10 a.m. today whipped into Alton from-the west as the temperature plopped 16 degrees in 10 minutes, from 88 to 72. Clouds moving at speeds estimate?! up to 45 miles per hour swept across the Mississippi, dragging the gray curtain of rain behind. The last previous rain this month here fell on July 13. It was a mere dribble. Today's rain will not be totaled in the gauge at Alton dam until 7 a.m. Tuesday. It appeared to be sufficient to moisten the soil that has shown signs of drying out. j Most important contribution of j the rain appeared to be ,a temporary relief from the humidity and heat that has prevailed dur- iing the last several days. I Maximum temperatures in the I last five days, except Sunday, 'were 90 of 91 at the dam. Sunday's high was 87. The statistics most indicative of the comfort level, however, are the minimum? of the last five days, all of which have been 70 or above. Soviet Union protested a U. S. Army transmission unit flown State GOP Is Backing Dirksen By CHARLES WHALEN CHICAGO (AP) — Illinois Republicans are solidly behind Sen. Everett M. Dirksen, as long as he figures in the vice presidential picture, but are withholding their vote on the presidential nomination in an attempt to make it unanimous for Richard M. Nixon. Dirksen, the 64-year-old Senate minority leader, received unanimous endorsement for the second spot in the Illinois caucus Sunday. Many delegates said privately they expect the Dirksen boom, directed by Gov. Stratton, soon will fizzle. Dirksen himself appeared toj take the endorsement seriously,; telling the delegates he would be | —Sen. John F. Kennedy meets to- jhcre last week to help in U.N. 1 communications.

Most of the remaining Belgian doctors in the country said they intend leaving, and World Health Organization officials were trying to get help locally and also to recruit staffs abroad. The treasury and currency situation was reported so precarious that it appeared -many Aug. 1 payrolls could not be met, and the long term outlook for replenishing government revenues was gloomy so long as the economy remained largely paralyed.

Mayor Day recently telephoned Brodle to ask that the easement be granted as part of the city's effort to get the Cut' Broadway-Main intersection improvement under construction this year. "1 greatly appreciate Brodle's cooperation to help us speed up the Cut street project." said Mayor Day. Now I'm hoping the New York Central lines will use equal expedition in providing a like easement we must have from that railroad." For the relocation of Cut street eastward to align with Main street at Broadway, crossings of both the GM&O and the NYC system must be relocated. The Illinois Commerce Commission has approved the crossing changes but formal easements by the railroads also are rajuisite before the improvement will reach contract stage.

City Manager Graham W. Watt said that 13 crews were at work today on the pick-up program. Six city trucks and seven con. tract trucks were engaged on the clearing job. "We hope to complete the job this week," said Watt, "and every effort is being made to expe dlte it. However, the quantity of branches to be removed to the city disposal areas has far exceeded early expectations.

Opposition developed in the platform committee to some parts of the Nixon-Rockefeller agreement. While siding with Nixon in the platform fight, Rockefeller still was unwilling to release the New York delegates to endorse'the vice president as the Republican presidential nominee. The governor postponed until a meeting of the delegation Tuesday afternoon any decision on a presidential nominee. The convention will select its nominee Wednesday night.
