StMents Return From Illegal Tour of Cuba NEW YORK tAP)*-ttfty American students'who defied a State Department ban oh travel to Cuba returned"' by plane from Madrid tTiursdfty' night, matty of them still defiant »f U.S. policies. Some bt the students staged a "Stand-In"'kt tdlewild Airport to protest a government annourtce- ftient that ttieir passports would be Invalidated. The" "stand-in" ended two hours later when they were told their passports would not be marked invalid. However, each student was presented with a State Department letter noting that his or her passport had been suspended because of the trip to Cuba. "We consider this another victory," said Lee Levi Lailb of New Vork, a former Columbia University student. Subpoenaed Ten of the students were subpoenaed to appear Sept. 12 before the House Committee on Un- American Activities. When the group left their plane, moat of them walked into the Customs Building quietly. But one student, not identified, fell to his knees and kissed the ground. A spokesman for the group said five students decided not to take part in the Idlewild demonstration. The spokesman added that only about five "disliked what they saw in Cuba." Larry Phelps, one of those served with a subpoena, said he is from North Carolina and is a graduate of the University of North Carolina. "I can't understand why I was served," Phelps said. "Of course, I'll have to go there (Washington)." Philip Luce of New York City contended that in going to Cuba the students had exercised their constitutional rights and had violated no rules or laws. He referred to the. Cuban' visit as "a magnificent experience to alii" The United States restricts travel to Cuba, with which it has no diplomatic relations. Richard Thorne" of Berkeley, Calif.; a Negro, told newsmen he saw schools in Cuba and no discrimination. The party leaders were honest." ; f Zeal Don 'Rainman, a University of California student, .remarked: "The people have an unprecedented ; enthusiasm for Fidel Castro. They have not lost their zeal for the revolution." The students who originally numbered-59, went first tp.Czeghb: Slovakia, then Havana'! They Went to Madrid from Havana last Sunday. , . Of, the original 59, one died in Cuba, three remainded there,'one returned earlier to Boston, and four decided to stay in Madrid a bit longer. Concerning the invalidation of their passports, Clark Foreman, director of the Emergency Civil Liberties Committee, said .the courts would have to decide whether ,such a procedure was legal. | Says Court Erred in Butts Case ATLANTA (AP)—Attorneys for Curtis Publishing Co., seeking retrial of Wally Butts' libel suit, contended today the court erred in ruling out testimony about a woman they described as a com- of the former football panion coach. The motion for a new trial was filed in U.S. District Court after Eastern Crises Costly By CONRAD tINK TOKYO (AP)—There was death in Viet Nam's jungles, political intrigue in Saigon. There was discontent in dusty Seoul; economic risis and international wheeling and dealing in a host of other places. The fighting, squabbling and lunger were far from America's shores but the United States was up to its neck in all of it. After 18 years of bloody, expensive American involvement in the Far East, there were as many crises as ever and the United States was receiving as many hot- potato questions as ever before. The American creed, spread with missionary-like zeal, was democracy, anti-communism and economic stability — hopefully all three at the same time. The cost of evangelism was high. In Viet Nam the cost stood at $1.5 million a day and 96 American lives so far. No end was in sight. It is almost impossible to calculate the total cost of America's attempt to guide the destinies of millions of the Far East since World War II. You could add the 96 Americans killed in Viet Nam to the 20,617 who died in the 1950-53 Korean War. But that overlooks those who died unsung—Special Forces men lost in combat in places like Laos arid pilots who disappeared in the Japan Sea on training flights. Accountants of the Agency for International Development are more specific in adding up the dollar..cost: .$13.7. billion for economic aid and $8.1 billion for military' aid in the Far East from July 1, 1945 to June 30, 1962. Surveying the results, an AID man in Tokyo said: "It's a discouraging business we're in." There was no mistaking that the "discouraging business" was America's baby. Asia's resurgent power, Japan, wanted to avoid entanglement and continue making money. The French were long gone from Viet Nam,, the Dutch a • memoiy in Indonesia, the British almost:impotent in areas they once ruled with dash and vigor. All were onlookers and their attitude may have been summed up in Tokyo by a French newspaperman who whirled on his American listeners and heatedly declared: "You wanted to replace us in Indochina and you did. Well, let's see you do better." One thing seemed clear: Bui for America's involvement, the Soviets' hammer and sickle or Red China's five.yellow stars on a field of red would be in many places where they are not. OpenHousing Opportunity Improving CHICAGO (AP)—A deputy commissioner of the Federal Housing Administration said Thursday night that equal housing opportunities for non-whites are on the upswing. Philip J. Maloney told a meeting of the National Association of Real Estate Brokers, a Negro or- Judge Lewis R. Morgan Thursday issued a stay of execution of the $3.06 million judgment awarded Butts by a jury last week. Citing 23 grounds as error, Curtis attorneys asked that the verdict be set aside because of "gross excessiveness." Butts, 58- year-old former athletic director at Georgia, • suel for $10 million because of -a Saturday Evening Post article charging that he and Coach Paul (Bear) Bryant of Alabama rigged a football game. The motion said the court erred in refusing to admit testimony from a woman identified as "E. Smith" or "E. C. Smith" of Atlanta. Attorney Wei born B. Cody, chief counsel for the publishing firm, and his associates contended they should have been permitted to question Butts about the woman and to call the woman as a witness. Pre-trial testimony was taken from her, evidence, the attorneys Argued, was admissible because it putts' testimony that he never* done anything to in- the" University of Georgia; to mitigate damages and "to prove that tlw plaintiff was'8 corrupt "' 5 cited by Curtis 4'excessiveness of of the ewJ evidence of by a witness. ganization, that President Kennedy's executive order on equal opportunities has produced a climate under which "we have seen some of the bars lowered and nonwhites enjoying an equal opportunity in the purchase of housing." But, he said, "we would only be fooling ourselves if we assumed this activity was extensive. We know it has been scattered anc sporadic." Maloney said that by the end of 1963 about 100,000 housing units will be constructed or under construction, all covered by the section of the President's order providing sanctions if the units are not sold or rented to all persons equally. Red China, Canada Sign Trade Pact OTTAWA (AP) - A deal With Peking under which Canada will admit up to $7 million worth of internationally competitive goods from Red China annually was outlined by Trade Minister Mitchell Sharp today. Textiles are to make up the bulk of the imports. This is part of the afrahgernent under which Canada recently signed a wheat agreement with China state trading oi-gahizatiorts. Sharp said the agreement will provide for sales of between $215 million and $360 million worth of Canadian wheat to China in the next three years. Last year, Communist Chinese sales to Canada reached $4,520,000, Including about $1.3 million n the sensitive goods covered by he new agreement. Canadian exports to Red China hit $147,430,)00, almost entirely grain. GOP Raps Kennedy Aid Stand WASHINGTON (AP) — The lenate-House Republican leader- hip asserted today that if bipar- isan support for foreign aid has een destroyed, President Kenney destroyed it by blaming the GOP for drastic House cuts. The Republican leadership, in joint statement, challenged Kennedy's recent characterization f the House slash from $4.1 to 3.5 billion in the foreign aid pro- ram as "shortsighted, unwise nd dangerously partisan." The group, headed by Sen. Evrett M. Dirksen, of Illinois, Sente Republican leader, and Rep. Charles A. Halleck, R-Ind., GOP eader in the House, said 66 House Democrats, "or better than 1 out f 4," joined Republicans in cut- ng the program. : In the statement, issued short- y after Kennedy appealed at Hy- nnis Port, Mass., for Senate res- oration of the reductions, the Republicans declared: "If bipartisan support of the oreign aid program has now been destroyed'—to use President Kenedy's word—it was Mr. Kenne[y's own unwise statement which destroyed it. "It would have better become he office of the presidency had VIr. Kennedy at the same time oted that 66 Democrats, or bet- er than 1 out of 4, also voted to ut the program. Instead he singled out only Republicans who are outnumbered in the.House 258 o 177."
