Remarks Not
Admissible
State Attorneys Will
Seek Reconsideration
Of Latest Decision
AUSTIN, Tex. ()-Jack Ruby
won reversal yesterday of his con-
viction for the slaying of Lee Har-
vey Oswald and defense attorneys
claim he may never again be sen-
tenced to death.
The Warren Commission asserted
Oswald assassinated President
John F. Kennedy in Dallas, Tex.,
Nov. 22, 1963.
Ruby can "walk free on a plea
of guilty to murder without mal-
ice," said Joe Tonahill, of Jasper,
Tex., one of Ruby's original at-
torneys.
Conviction carries an impris-
onment term of two to five years
,~and Ruby has spent almost three
years in 'jail. Judges often con-
sider time in jail as imprisonment
time.
Highest Court
Ruby's conviction and death sen-
tence were reversed by the Texas
Court of Criminal Appeals high-
est state court in criminal cases.
The court said Ruby's statments
to police soon after the shooting
-such as, "I hope I killed the
s.o.b."-were not spontaneous and
therefore were not legally admiss-
able at Ruby's trial.
Ruby's statements were made at
4 least 10 minutes after the shoot-
ing and, in the case of his state-
ments to a Secret Service agent
after he asked if his answers
would be made available to "maga-
zines or publications." This proves
he was "not speaking spontaneous-
ly," the appeals court said.
The court said Ruby must be
given a new trial buthnot in Dal-
las County where the killing oc-
curred.
Ruby's attorneys said the high
court opinon means the state can-
not prove malice and premedita-
tion-necessary for a death sen-
q Ruby's statement after the killing,
which took place during a jail
transfer and in sight of millions of
television viewers.
However, state's attorneys said
they will ask the court to recon-
sider the opinion and approve the
original verdict.
Since Ruby has served nearly
three years in jail and normally
would get the standard three-days
for-one credit for good behavior
he would already have served more
than enough time under the maxi-
mum murder-without-malice sen-
tence-five years, Tonahill said.
Testimony Sufficient
The court said the admission of
the officers' testimony was suffi-
cient to reverse the case and
therefore it was unnecessary to go
into detail on its second reason
for reversal, the refusal of the trial
court to transfer the court to an-
other county.
The court said recent U.S. Su-
preme Court decisions reversing
conivctions of Billie Sol Estes
and Dr. Samuel Sheppard "both
are hereby controlling."
The Sheppard murder case was
reversed on grounds that extens-
ive newspaper coverage had cre-
ated an unfavorable climate of
opinion against him in Cleveland.
The Estes fraud case involved tele-
vision coverage from a Tyler, Tex.,
courtroom.

LBJ'S REQUEST SLASHED:
enePassesAid til
Milittary Assis tance CGut

WASHINGTON (M-)-The Sen-
ate, acting with unexpected speed
yesterday, passed a $2.93-billion
foreign aid appropriation bill, but
the total was nearly half a billion
dollars below President Johnson's
request.
The vote on passage was 52-22.
A S e n a t e-House conference
committee will have the task of
working out a compromise be-
tween the Senate bill and the
$3.09-billion approved by the
House. In the past' the conferees
frequently have agreed to split the
difference between the two ap-
propriations.
The Senate bill includes $2.14

billion for economic aid and $792
million for military assistance.
The foreign aid program reach-
ed the Senate floor with a com-
mittee recommendation for a
$3.04-billion appropriation.
But then it ran into the ac-
cumulated complaints, particular-
ly with military aid, being ex-
pressed by senators with increas-
ing frequency in recent years.
Sen. Allen J. Ellender (D-La),
an old foe of foreign aid, won sup-
port for three cuts totalling $110
million.
One of the three was a cut of
$48 million from the military aid
section of the package.

World News Roundup

By The Associated Press
DETROIT. Chrysler Corp. and
the United Auto Workers Union
reached a tentative agreement
yesterday to end a six-day strike
that virtually throttled Chrysler's
auto production and idled 42,600
workers.
Douglas Fraser, the director of
the UAW Chrysler Department,
scheduled a -ratification meeting
for today at Chrysler's Twinsburg,
Ohio, stamping plant. Chrysler
said if the agreement is ratified,
some operations will resume today,
with other scheduled to resume
over the weekend and on into next
week.

JAKARTA, Indonesia - Gen.
Abdul Haris Nasution, chairman of
Indonesia's Congress, said Wed-
nesday that President Sukarno is
not immune to trial by a special
military tribunal. He said Sukarno

must explain the abortive Com-'
munist coup attempt last year,
and economic decline and deca-
dence in Indonesia.
Nasution told a delegation of
student action fronts that Sukar-
no would be brought to trial if
he were shown to be connected
with the coup attempt.

KINSHASA, Congo-The Congo
broke relations yesterday with the
Portugese, 11 days after their em-
bassy was sacked by a mob.
Congolese officials charge that
neighboring Portugese Angola is
used as a base for mercenary ope-
consulates of all foreign countries.
rations against the Congo. These
operations are alleged to be in
behalf of a return to power by
ex-Premier Moise Tshombe, now
in exile. Besides ordering the di-
plomatic break with Portugal, the
Cabinet decided to close inland

Ellender said that cut, approved
by a vote of 47-27, would bar a
resumption of military aid to In-
dia and Pakistan and also reduce
the U.S. ability to sell arms on
credit for developing nations.
Ellender Amends
The Ellender amendment cut
the military aid section to $792
million from $840 million.
"I don't see how the Senate cap
vote to provides funds for military
equipment to Pakistan and India.
All of us were astounded when
India and Pakistan engaged in
war and used military equipment
on both sides marked 'Made in the
U.S.A.,'" Ellender told the Senate.
Sen. John O. Pastore (D-R.I.),
floor manager of the bill, protest-
ed, with little effect, that, "I think
it is dangerous for the Senate to
reduce military assistance."
Increased Commitments
With increased commitments
for military aid to Thailand and
Laos and with the cost of moving
North Atlantic Treaty Organiza-
tion military headquarters from
Paris to Brussels, Pastore said, the
administration needs more than
the $917 million it requested,
rather than less.
"I wish we could cut it more,"
Ellender responded. "If we did, we
might be in less trouble in the
future."
- Also approved were Ellender
proposals to cut $35 million from
the Contingency Fund and $27
million from the Development
Loan Fund.
The Contingency Fund appro-
priation originally was for $70
million. Ellender said the cut
would still leave $75 million be-
cause there is more than $40 mil-
lion in holdover funds in the ac-
count.

rea's Premier Kim II Sung plead-
ed with the world's Communist
nations yesterday to close their
ranks and send fighting "volun-
teers" to Viet Nam.
At the same time he painted a
picture of the disarray in Com-
munism's ranks so gloomy as to
suggest that held out little hope
the main antagonists-the Soviet
Union and Red China would get
together. Until they do, no other
Communist nation is likely to dis-
patch its fighting men to Viet
Nam.
Kim, in a major policy address
before the opening session of the
Worker's Communist party in
Pyangyang, said the Communist
"volunteers" are needed to coun-
teract expansion of the war by
the United States and its Allies
which threatens the existence of
North Viet Nam.
He also saw-them as a means of
patching up the tattered unity of
international communism.
He said North Korea's olun-
"ou-teers" will go to fight. whenever
Hanoi calls for them. South Ko-
rea has nearly 40,000 troops in
1South Viet Nam.
Kim's speech is likely to create
a sensation in Communist ranks. A
somewhat mysterious figure who
keeps in the background and sel-
dom makes major pronouncements,
he spells out the Communist di-
lemma over Viet Nam in the clear-
est and least compromising terms
yet.
This is that while North Viet
Nam is being attacked by the
United States daily and is suffer-
ing heavy losses in men and ma-
terial, ideological differences para-
lyze the Communist bloc.
China refuses to join hands with
the Soviet Union on the grounds
Moscow is collaborating with the
United States; the Soviets hold
back because they do not wish to
see China's policy of people's war
vindicated in Viet Nam.
Kim's address, distributed by
the Korean Central News Agency
and monitored in Tokyo, betrayed
his impatience with Chinese and
Soviet obduracy.
"At present, the countries of the
socialist camp are not keeping
step with each other in opposing
U.S. aggression and aiding the
Vietnamese people because of dif-
ferences among themselves. This
afflicts the fighting people of Viet
Nam and really saddens us Com-
munists," he said.
