tuba Sending Teelers' to OAS Conference H#ANA r- (JP) government disclosed plans Saturday to send a high powered delegation to the Western Hemisphere's Foreign Minister's Conference, called to discuss Cuba's alliance with the Soviet bloc. At the same time, Prime Minister Fidel Castro postponed a huge rally called for Jan, 22, the day the ministers open their sessions in Uruguay's resort city of Punta del Este. It was believed Castro wanted first to make sure how Cuba fares at the Foreign Ministers' meeting before addressing the rally. So the date has been reset for Jar\, 28,"birthday of Cuba's national hero, Jose Marti. The delegation to the foreign ministers of the Organization of American States (OAS) wiJ] leave late this week. The 40-member delegation will be headed by Foreign Minister Raul Roa. He has said he will furnish proof a new armed invasion is threatening Cuba. Others Attending ^ With Roa will be Cuba's ^AS representative, Carlos feechuga; Ramon Aja, head of the Foreign Ministry's |,atin American desk, and Benito Besada Ramos, chief of •file ministry's legal depart- •:^ent. > Roa will meet Brazilian •foreign Minister Santiago |)anta and Mexico's Miguel tello in Brasilia or Rio de •Janeiro, possibly on Jan. 19. Thei chief advocates of the principle of nonintervention. Most Latin American diplomats here feel this nation's answer to any request that it leave the Soviet sphere will be a flat "no:" They point out that high priests of Cuban socialism, including Castro himself, have too often proclaimed the irreversible trend of the march toward the East. Signed Agreement Another indication that Cuba has no intention of changing its course is the re cent signing of a 70'0 million peso trade agreement with the Soviet Union for 1962. Similar deals have been signed with almost all Communist countries. Diplomats here believe Cuba has no real interest in abandoning the OAS but, given a choice, it would reject the inter-American system for the Soviet sphere. The rally of the people now set for Jan. 28 will hear Castro's second declaration of Havana, the prime minister has announced. It presumably will be a reply to any action taken at Punta del Este. His first declaration of Havana was issued Sept. 2, 1960, after the hemisphere's foreign ministers meeting in Costa Rica called for solidarity against Communist infiltration. Castro tore up the foreign minister's declaration, rejected the Monroe Doctrine and announced he was establishing diplomatic Medical School Aid Goes to UW, MU WASHINGTON — (/P) — Senator Wiley, R-Wis., said he was advised that the National Health Institutes had approved grants of $117,378 for the Marquette University medical school and $284,129 for the medical school of the University of Wisconsin.

"I know of no recent ses sion that passed less constructive educational legislation or passed more negative. educational legislation," said Watson. "The level of support for our schools has been relatively reduced, school district reorganization has been slowed in its progress, and the Legis lature has bowed to groups within and without the profession," he added. Watson addressed a University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee conference of school, administrators. He charged that the 1961 Legislature had contributed a year of "frustration and backsliding, a year of defeat and disappointment to public education."

College Fad: ?Grow' Icicles CAPE G I R A R DEAU, :MO. — (/P) — Some stu- ;dents at Southeast Mis- Ssouri State College have a •vnew extra-curricular ac• 'tivity—icicle cultivation. ' Mike Letch grew bored ^during t h e recent cold Cspell. He punched a small •;hole in a soup can, hung it ;'out the window of his •third floor room and 'watched the dripping water ^gradually form into an ficicle. Fellow students in the !dorm immediately followed ;suit. Mike promptly switched .to a half gallon can, then to a gallon and then to a five gallon can as the race for icicle supremacy grew. But the fun's over now, Mike said Saturday. Icicle cultivation began to cut into his study time. The finished icicle stretched from Mike's window to the top of a first .floor window. being printed in final form and is expected to reach the governor's desk this week. Many Messages The bill requires all school districts to give private school children bus rides to the public school they are entitled to attend. During consideration of the measure by the Legislature, citizens oh both sides of the issue deluged lawmakers with mail and phone calls. Since its "passage, the governor's of- of|fice has received a large number of messages on the subject. The final bill represents a compromise reached in a legislative conference committee. Earlier in the session, the Senate passed the measure in a form that would have made transportation to the private school mandatory. Optional Basis The Assembly acted favorably on a proposal that would have -allowed local school districts to provide the transportation on an optional basis. Finally, the compromise committee agreed on the present version. It has been estimated that the bill would cost about $900,000 a year in added state aids, based on the assumption that about 50,000 private school children would avail themselves of the public transportation. Nelson said last week he would not consider the cost factor in reaching his decision, but would sign or veto the bill on its merits. trails into Fox River, Locicmaster Drowns ' APPLETON ~i/P)— Harry I Wilson, '61, a government; lockmaster, drowned when he| fell off a concrete pier intol the Fox River while clearing' i?e from a gate on the dam hear the Interlakes Paper Mill here . , His body was not recovered immediately. 10-COUNTRY EUROPEAN TOUR Includes Air Fare froi« N.Y. 3 Weeks 695.00 1 Month 754.00 For Comphte Information Coll Irma At MEIrose 7-8336 UNIVERSAL TRAVEL SERVICE 1648 Douglas 2 STUDIO BOOK ""^^^ Send me the rtew Arthur Murray Dance Book and inhrmation about the Arthur Murray Studios.
