R Castro Invites U.S. To Initiate
Talks on Passes from Cuba

MIAMI ()-Fidel Castro said
yesterday the gates of Communist
Cuba will be opened wide for any
and all Cubans who wish to leave
and challenged the United States
to discuss with him the means of
accomplishing such an exit.
The bearded prime minister, in
what Radio Havana termed a

ment, said he was willing to dis-
cuss the matter through diploma-
tic channels, if the U.S. takes the
"If the government of the Unit-
ed State does not wish to air this
question publicly, it is for it to
give the pertinent instructions to
the representatives of its interests

in Cuba so they may solicit from
the revolutionary government the
information which is of interest in
this respect," Castro was quoted
as saying.
Castro's latest offer was con-
siderably broader than one he
made Tuesday, when he said he
would give free exit only to Cu-
bans with relatives in the U.S.
In Washington, officials of the
Johnson administration said they
still had not heard anything of-
ficially from Castro and would not
reply until they do.
They promised again, however,
to give careful consideration to
any official proposal the Cuban

prime minister cared

to put for-

Wagner To
Peace Terms
NEW YORK (1P)-Mayor Robert
F. Wagner gave negotiators until
midnight Saturday to settle New
York's 16-day partial newspaper
blackout. Otherwise, he said, yes-
terday he will recommend peace
terms of his own.
Wagner's threat to recommend
his own settlement terms was
reminiscent of a similar action he
took to end the 1962-63 blackout.
At that time he put forward a
peace formula which was nonbind-
ing but eventually was accepted by
the disputants.
Any settlement recommenda-
tions by Wagner would not be

The station fell silent for five
hours. During the interim the
station was retaken by forces loyal
to Sukarno. Then a government
announcement was made that De-
fense Minister Nasution's troops
were in control. The announcer
said that Sukarno and Nasution
were safe, appealed for calm, and
then played music.
Radio Jakarta said Untung's
troops managed to capture Gen.
Yani and several other generals
but failed to seize Nasution, who
used his old unit, the Siliwangi
Division, to crush the uprising.
Elite Unit
The division, rated the most
elite unit in Sukarno's army, had
been moved to Jakarta last month,
ostensibly to prepare for Tuesday's
Armed Forces Day.
While the insurgents held the
Jakarta station, they broadcast
announcements designating the

said he was a political unknown.
The revolutionary council had
announced it would create mili-

"who led a gay life and wasted
government finance."
It also had declared during its
control of Radio Jakarta, that the
CIA "has been very active lately,
especially after President Sukar-
no was seriously ill in the first
week of August this -year. Their
hope that President Sukarno
would die of his illness did not
materialize, Radio Jakarta said.
Sukarno, 64, a theatrical politi-
can who has controlled the 100
million Indonesians on Indonesia's
3000 islands since the close of
World War II, had been balancing
the army against the Communists.
But recently he has responded
more frequently to the demands
of the three million-member Com-
munist party.
Sukarno has been reported suf-
fering from a kidney ailment for
years, but there had been no word
of him being ill in August.
The Indonesian strongman has
escaped at least four assassination
attempts. Although never elected
president, he has had himself de-
clared president for life.
Sukarno preaches socialism. He
has emphasized he was not a
Communist, but he has listened
increasingly to the Communists.
In foreign policy his moves have
followed the Red Chinese in vir-
tually all areas. On Tug. 17 he
proclaimed an "anti-imperialism

the Negroes aside.

but you're going to have to move,"
a trooper told the demonstrators
before hauling the Negroes out
of the street.

NEW YORK-Government of-

visit of Pope Paul VI to speak for
peace before the United Nations

The planning of the first papal
