TOUT ALf <3N EVENING SAltffifcAY, AWUS* 3, 1063 Lead Pern Plant Gmb fly VtCfOR .._.. LIMA, Peru — Eight paratroop cr-typG Castro agents, all young Peruvians, slipped Into this country some weeks ago. They carried $27,000 in cash. They had drawn tills in Havana. They were not the first such team. They will not be the last. What makes them different? They were caught. Such sabotage teams do not play at international revolution. They pick strategic* targets and lilt with bomb and arson, There is, for example, the raid at Cerro dc .Pasco installations. At about 7 a.m. last pec. 17, a contlgent of miners from the Mining and Metal Workers Federation of Central Peru marched on the company's buildings in Oroya. Until that moment there had been peaceful wage negotiations between the union and the copper, lead and zinc firm which has its headquarters in New York City. But at a signal this band of miners — and no one knows who flashed the word — fought their way past 25 idling guards. One of the invading gang carried a 12 by 4-foot Peruvian flag. He and some of his comrades spread it in a patriotic gesture alongside a • plant wall. Quickly some of the other maurauders, using the flag as a shield to hide them, dug through this well into the compound. Soon they were inside. They made contact with others who had apparently been hiding on company property. They bombed. They put fire to the central warehouse which had stored the vital supplies and spare parts for the mining and smelting operations. This burned to the ground. The cost of this building and its contents was $4 million. Rolled Rocks on Track Meanwhile other units of the well-drilled invaders began rolling rocks down on the railroad tracks and the mountain roads leading to Cerro de Pasco's plant at Oroya. The rail line had to cut service. Fire engines and other vehicles were paralyzed on the steep roads. Other raiders seized refineries, smelters, smaller warehouses and auxiliary plants. The sampling plant was burned right down to ashes. One official report said destruction hit everything in the path of the striking bands of unionists. They held the plant property for three days. In addition to the $4 million loss, the company dropped about $185,000 a day in production. This does not include the cost of re building culverts which were des troyed during the successful ef fort to cut the roads and isolate Oroya — and there was also the cost of nearby oil and gas tanks which were put aflame. The comparative handful of Communists who led the invasion thus were able to paralyze company activities for awhile — and keep some 12,000 men jobless. Mind you, all this happened just as the year-end contract was being peacefully negotiated. This raid was part of the effort to injure the economy of an ally of ours which is having the usual financial difficulties. There were other violent efforts. Over in a suburb, the Bata Rimac shoe company also was negotiating with a union — the shoe workers. Bargaining was peaceful. Sudden ly a band of Communist unionists marched on the plant. They seized it and for two days held management men as hostages. Word Had Gone Out During this period there were also plant seizures in textiles and other industries where the Com munists have powerful blocs. Ob viously the word had gone out But who was leading the raid ing? Who was directing the quasi military operations? Government intelligence people believed they knew. They drag netted the land for Communist of ficials and activists. As soon as these were in jail, the raids stop ped. Now these Communists an being released. More raids an expected on other plants. Lest there be any doubt as l< who the plant-seizure strategist are, I sought out Arturo Sabrosc Montoya, secretary general of tin Peruvian Confederation of Labo (CTP). He explained the Commu nist technique. He said there "i; no doubt" that Castro teams an operating in the country. Some ar to industry. He asserted that the Commun ist technique is to attempt U seize the large union negotiatin committees and then try to stal any peaceful bargaining — espec lally with foreign-owned firms. Mr. Sabroso revealed he ha< evidence that the Peruvian Com munist Party was directly linke to the effort to discourage foreig Investments, And the Castr teams provided the bombs the guns, the strategy and th cash needed for such operations. Other sources said the Cerro d Pasco Corporation had been th qprnmunist, target becuase it ha i[jyegte«| about ?100 million in th to Improve wor ll)e mlne8 ftn Jersey Herd Wins Top Pri&es AtStiClttirFair JERS&YVILLE - During t h e .

Weekly Book Review Fi*om City Library B.v DAVID KARL HOLt Librarian "CARAVANS" by James A. lichcnec — Have you ever wit- essed a stoning? I mean a real ne? One where men throw stones t a woman until they kill her? Until there is nothing left but a orpse under a pile of rocks? Did you ever attend a primitive xecution? One where the execu- ioner saws off his victim's head vith a rusty old bayonet? Have /ou ever dreamed of traveling he length and breadth of far way Afghanistan? Wanted to see ts frontiers, the ruined cities, its Vomads? Ever thought of journey- ng over the scorching desert vhere the dry heat will mumify \ dead body in just a few days? Vhere the temperature reaches 30 degrees at mid-day? You will. You will experience this and much uore svhen you read "Caravan." The magic, the mystery, the in- rigue, the sheer excitement of liis far away land is enough in tself to carry you through this book 'til the end. The plot serves is a convenient vehicle to send over almost every fascinating, inexplored spot of this little <nown country in southwest Asia. Vlark Miller, the hero, must earch through the entire coun ry for a lost • American girl. To !o it he motors by jeep into the nterior, crosses the great desert, ind finally gets marooned in a tation called a "caravanserai" icar the caravan route of the toricd "Kochi" nomads. The sights he sees when walk ng with the caravan (contrary to sopular opinion, all members must walk except the leader) are [escribed masterfully as only Vlichener can. The beauty, the najesty of the fabled Hindu Rush ange of mountains bursts forth n a splendor almost too much to 'ear. Memorable scenes—such as he blow-by-blow account of the Afghan polo match between the lorth-of-the Oxus and the south- 'f-the-Oxus nomads — are unfor- ;ettably recorded. Traveling nrough the remains of a mighty ity so old that even its name is orgotten, Miller finally compre- ends the greatness that was once he heritage of the Afghan Na< ion. The City is where the river disappears yes, that's right, the iver Helmand simply disappears nto the desert. No one knows vhere it goes or why it goes. Bridges, which no one can use because the approaches are wash ed out, ancient arches and walls which must have housed millions of ancient peoples, now gone and 'orgotten. All are part of the eternal mystery of Afghanistan. The author does a superlative job if casting the spell, capturing the essence of this memorable land as ie spins the tale. Michener, famous for "South 'acific," and "Hawaii," has writ- en a singular novel in "Cara- 'ans." Another "Hawaii" it isn't. But a best seller, and destined to tay near the top of the current eaders for a good many weeks it s. It has something for every sue, with a little extra thrown in. And it is highly recommended.

Room arrangement Is planned for efficient as well as pleasurable living. The generous-sized living room, dining area, three bedrooms, centrally located kitchen and two- car attached garage, adds up to a modern home abounding In value. Spacious living room section s separated from the foyer by a double-sectioned planter. The already liberal dimensions of this area is enhanced by open planning and a sweeping picture window with side panels. A. second wall is completely occupied by " a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace. A trellis separates the living room from dining area. Thus, dining area has the advantage of being clearly defined without undergoing the inconvenience of being partitioned off from the arger living room, Another trellis arrangement separates this area from the kitchen imparting an illusion of added dimensions to the modest size dining area. Kitchen's "L" design is interrupted by a door leading to a backyard porch. This is a feature certain to win applause from knowing homemakers. The porch can also be reached directly from the garage. Plenty of wall area is available in kitchen for effective positioning of the various appliances. Cabinet and counter space is available in sufficient quantities to meet the need of the most demanding homemaker. A central hall provides acqess to the home's sleeping quarters. Adequate in size, the three bedrooms have plenty of closet space and each is- only a few steps away from the bath. This plan conforms to general FHA, VA and Building Code requirements.

Here's the Answer By ANDY LANG AP Newsfeatures Question: We have some white enameled furniture which we'd like to antique. I understand that a good glaze can be made by mixing turpentine with oil color and varnish. Can you tell me the correct proportions? Also; can you tell me how to do the stippling? Answer: You can make an antique glaze with 3 tablespoons of clear varnish and one and a half teaspoons of oil color. However, do not blend in the varnish until the turpentine and oil color have n mixed thoroughly. The usual been mixed thoroughly. The usual oil color for white enamel is raw umber, which produces a kind of ivory finish. If you wish a darker hue, use burnt umber. The glaze can be applied either with a brush or spray. As soon as it is applied—between 30 seconds and a minute and a half—wipe it with a clean, lint- less cloth, using a circular mo tion. The stippling follows immediately, using a small, dry brush.
