Cuba Attacks
United States
Roa's UN Speech Hits
American Exploitation
Of South America
Cuba denounced yesterday what
it described as U.S. economic ex-
ploitation and imperialism in La-
tin America and said the United
States had "left the Nazis way
behind" in "contempt for inter-
national law."
Cuban Foreign Minister Raul
Roa told the General Assembly
in a 5-minute policy address :
"Those who thought Nazism had
covered the extremes of human
bestiality missed the boat. The
not limited to graduates of the
Nazis way behind."
He spoke on the last day of the
assembly's general debate, during
which representatives of 109 of
the 122 nations presented policy
American Reply
Rep. L. H. Fountain, D-N.C.,
replying for the United States,
said: "Hatred for the United
States is obviously distorting the
lens through which he, Roa, views
the affairs of the entire world."
He added: "We do not believe
the cause of peace is served by
Cuba's persistent intervention and
deliberate attempts to underminet
free governments."
Roa told the assembly, however,
that it was not Cuba that inspires
revolution in Latin America but
the "exploitation by the Yankee
'Foul Exploitation'
For every U.S. dollar invested
in Latin America, he said, the
United States receives $3" dollars
in return.
Cuba is the "crystallization of
socialism," he said, and its indus-
try has grown rapidly "because
we have thrown off Yankee im-
perialism and chosen the only
road for development."
He suggested that the Cuban
revolution was a factor in what
he said was "the uprising of the
black people o.f America itself,"
and called the Organization of
American States the U.S. "minis-
try of colonies."
Vietnam Solution
Speaking briefly of the war in
Vietnam, Roa said North Viet-
nam would "continue to struggle
with a freedom and human dig-
nity that Is an example to the
rest of the world."
"It is not the United Nations
that must find a solution to the
Vietnamese war," he said. "The
Vietnamese people themselves will
do so. as they have routed the

AUSTRALIAN FOREIGN MINISTER Paul Hasluck, in speaking to the UN General Assembly yester-
day, assured South Vietnam that with increased urging of other countries for the U.S. to stop its
air attacks in the North, that peace talks would soon be sought. He also promised Australia's con-

In the meantime, Chaney was

"Jordan stood in the middle of

statement said. It added that
Barnette said he did not know
how many times Chaney was shot.
"You didn't leave me anything
but a nigger," the statement quo-
ted Jordan as saying. "But at
least I got me a nigger."
The statement said the bodies
were then taken to an earthen
dam and that Barnette and an-
other person went looking for
the bulldozer operator when he
did not arrive on time. It sai the
workers' station wagon was to be
burned with gasoline.
The government rested its case
at 3:20 p.m. yesterday, the fifth
day of the trial. It sougnt to prove
that a calculated Ku Klux Klan
plot led to the slayings during
Mississippi's r a c i a 11 y troubled
summer of 1964.
State charges were never filed
in the case. The federal indict-
ments were on charges the de-
fendants violated the workers' ci-
vil rights. Conviction could, bring
a maximum of 10 years in prison
and a $5,000 fine.
As the government ended its
testimony, U.S. Dist. Court Judge
Harold Cox overruled motions for
directed verdicts of acquittal in
each individual's case.

No Pay Raise
House opponents of the anti-f

in amending the bill and this week
they voted to exclude employes
