Antut 9,1959 See. v Paice 2 Report Castro Rounding Up ex-Batista Men HAVANA —(/P)— The Revolutionary regime Saturday began an intensive roundup of ex- Batista officers remaining in the Cuban Army, usually well informed sources said. That word came amid re-i ports that some conspiracy against Ihe government of Premier Fidel Castro had been un- eovered. One report said a number of Army officers who were kept in their jobs after ex-President Fulgencio Batista fled .Ian. 1 had been arrested at gunpoint and held in garrisons at Managua, nine miles south of Havana. One Havana radio station announced plans have been made to disband Cuba's secret police. The broaflcast said some members would be taken into the regular national police force and the chief of the secret police, Erundino Vilcia, would receive an "important post" in the Ministry of Government. Other high officials declined to comment immediately on the, reported rouncU»P of officersTn the old Batista Army. While various rumors circu lateS AP Wlrrpholo HONOR BUND V E T — Thomas J.

House Unit Urges U.S. Triple Chemical Warfare Research WASHINGTON spending for research (AP) —' A threefold increase in on chemical, biological and radiological warfare was rccommcr^dcd Saturday by the House Space Committee. "Only an increase of such size is likely to speed research to a level of attainment compatible with the efforts of the Communist nations," the committee said in a special report to Congress. The report told of extensive Communist research Into what the committee called CBR (chemicahbiologtcal-radio' logical) warfare. To Their Advantage "The conclusion is inescapable that the Soviet Union and other Communist countries plan to use CBR if they find it to their advantage," the report said. "This country must make sure that it is not to their advantage to use this form of warfare against us." The committee said the U.S. now is spending $.35 to $40 million a year on CBR research. "This represents about one one-thousandth of our defense budget," the report .said. Increasing this amount over a two or three year period to a spending level of around $125 million a year is needed, the committee said, to put this country more on a par witli the Communists. General's Testimony Along with the report, the committee released censored testimony of Maj. Gen. Marshall Stubbs, chief of the Army Chemical Corps. Stubbs, in closed door testimony before the committee last June 22, said the U.S. is highly vulnerable to Soviet CBR at­ tacks "that could , nt severely cripple this nation." The only solution, he contended, is to give this country sufficient retaliatory power in the same, fifeld that it would act as a deterrent to an attack. Cheap Method Both Stubbs and the committee said new development* In chemical Nvarfare, such as nerve gases and psychochemi- cals that can incapacitate people without killing, could provide a swift and cheap method of conquest. "One can conceive the possibility," the committee said, that a very powerful nation with great industrial resources and standing military forces could i>e toppled by a latter- day David of a smaller nation by quiet and sustained effort in the CBR field. "Only a thoroughgoing re search program of our own, coupled with proper attention to warning devices and civil defense, will insure that this country is not the Goliath to fall."

(AP) — Development within a few SisU "now believe that an ar' ' ' ' ' ' ray of seismometers can be WASHINGTON years of a reliable seismologtcal method of detecting nu rxplosions at considerable distances was held possible Premier Fidel Castro, issued a statement calling "'false and tendentious" reports by "news agencies" that there had been landings by invasion forces at various places in (iibii. He did not identify the sources of the reports he said had been put out. Eapiior, both I'idel and Raul Castro showed up unexpectedly at the presidential palace along with some cabinet ministers. The palace, normally quiet on weekends, was bustling with newsmen and rumors that some developments were expected. A spokesman said, however, "all is normal." Name 2 Regions Disaster Areas Reporting on what it called intensive research devoted to the problem,'the agency said its seismologists have been stvidying the possibilities of detecting underground cxplo- .sions through the use of two methods: 1. The placement of seismic detectors in deep holes. U-ie of Arrays 2. The use of arrays of instruments electrically connected so as to filter out the major part of troublesome ground WASHINGTON —(.^i— The Small Business Adminislration Saturday named blast-shattered Roseburg, Ore., and the hurricane battered Hawaiian Island of Kauai official disaster areas. The designation permits owners of damaged homes and businesses to apply for long- term reconstruction loans at 3 per cent. A wide area in Roseburg was flattened when a truck loaded with explosives blew up during a fire Friday. The death toll may reach 20 and damage is estimated in the millions of dollars. Kauai suffered extensive damage to its sugar and pineapple plantations from the hurricane Dot on Thursday. The report said the first system, involving tlie placing of detectors in holes 3,000 to 5,000 feet deep, would be more expensive but would not reciuire such a large area of operation. No cost estimates were given for cither method. "The detection of nuclear explosions," the report said, "is based on the principle that certain distinctive characteristics o.\ist in direction of ground movement resulting from natural earthquakes, which differ from those generated by! artificial explosions , . . Technical Difficulties "Technical difficulties in developing a reliable detection arranged in such a pattern that interference noise will have a tendency to be canceled out.», 100 Detection "For satisfactory results, the Coast and Geodetic Survey proposes that such an array should consist of at least 100 detectors, from which a single recording representing the system are encountered In efforts to overcome the problem of filtering out interference noise in order to distinguish between the sound characteristics of the two different types of ground movement." Asserting that the use of conventional seismographs in monitoring nuclear tests had met with only limited success, the agency said its seismolo- Mobs Surround Queen s Home Head-on Auto Crash Kills 6 in Colorado STRASBURG.

BALMORAL, Scotland — f/P) — Thousands of tourists locked around Balmoral Saturday night almost within earshot of Queen Elizabeth II. the expectant mother who rules over Britain. It was as if the S.'i-year-old monarch was expecting her first baby instead of her third Cars jammed the country roads around the Queen's summer vacation home in Balmoral Castle.

But while he spoke crowds thronged the area hoping for a glimpse of the royal mother-to-be and her two children, Prince Charles and Princess Anne.
