LOS ANGELES (W--Vice-Presi-

renewed his attack on Sen. John
F. Kennedy over Quemoy and
He observed that as long ago
as 1955 the Democratic presiden-
tial nominee was among a Senate
minority that favored excluding
the Nationalist Chinese islands
from the Formosa defense line.
The question of defending the
islands, which lie between Formo-
sa and the Red Chinese mainland,
has become a leading campaign
Addresses Gathering
Addressing a breakfast gather-
ing at a Hollywood restaurant,
Nixon said that five years ago
'my opponent was in the little
band that said we'll draw a line"
that leaves the islands out.
He referred to a vote on a 1955
Senate amendment to a resolu-
tion that gave President Dwight
D. Eisenhower, in effect, carte
blanche in conducting the defense
of Formosa.
The amendment, which would
have excluded Quemoy and Matsu
from the Nationalist Chinese line
of defense, was defeated 70-12 and
Kennedy was listed as paired for
its passage,
Questions Viewpoint
"What happened?" Nixon asked.
"Five years ago we were saying
to the Chinese Communists that
if an attack is made there you
are taking a chance that we will
do something about it."
Nixon said that although the
islands have been shelled, they
remain in the hands of the Na-
tionalists as free world outposts.
Nixon drew a crowd of 7,500 at
a rally of first-time voters at the

Describes Parties
Asked to explain the difference
between the Republican and Dem-
ocratic parties, he said that so
far as their goals are concerned,
there are no differences.
In the course of answering the
question, Nixon gave this defini-
tion of where he stands: "I am
a practical progressive."
What does he think is his chief
asset for the presidency?
He said he preferred not to an-
swer that directly but added: "I
do know the world. I do know
the dangers we face. I do know
that America needs to grow, eco-

Sees Dissent
SEOUL (M)-The American com-
mander in Korea issued a warn-
ing yesterday against what he
called dissension in the South
Korean armed forces.
Deploring retirement of several
top Korean military officers since
the collapse of the Syngman Rhee
regime in the April revolution,
Gene Carter B. Magruder, com-
mander of United Nations and
United States forces in Korea, said
"the most critical question that
Korea now faces is how can she
maintain the confidence of her al-
lies and of her own people in her
own armed forces."
The Korean officers who quit
left under pressure for a cleanup.
Magruder said the strength of mil-
itary forces rests primarily on
commanders and commanders de-
rive prestige primarily from suc-
cess in war. As a result of retire-
ments, he said, "relatively few

Magruder said he would suggest
this answer to his question:
"This confidence, so critically
needed for Korea's continued ex-
istence, can be maintained only if
dissension within the armed forces
is completely replaced with disci-
pline and with loyalty both from
commanders for their subordinates
and from subordinates for their

LONDON (RP)-- British Prime
Minister Macmillan has told
French President Charles de
Gaulle and German Chancellor
Konrad Adenauer he believes
Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev
still seriously wants to negotiate
with the West at a summit parley
early in 1961.
No Details
Informants gave out no direct
details about the contents of Mac-
millan's message to his colleages.
The Prime Minister is known,
however, to have formed the im-
pression in New York that
Khrushchev is unlikely to take
any drastic international action
in advance of the projected East-
West summit parley.
Among other impressions Mac-
millan is reported to have brought
back from New York:
Not Eager
1) Khrushchev is not eager for
an early resumption of East-West
disarmament negotiations. per-
haps he wants first to see who
wins the United States election.;
Possibly he wants a prior summit
meeting. Or he may be waiting
for some startling new Soviet de-
2) Khrushchev overplayed his
"tough" role before the United
Nations assembly. Subsequent as-
sembly votes showed he failed to

register any runaway propaganda
victories among the uncommitted
nations of Africa and Asia.
3) Khrushchev may be expected
to pursue his vendetta against
United Nations Secretary General
Dag Hammarskjold.

The Chamber said it is adopt-

cause the issue of providing medi-
cal care for the aged through so-
cial security is sure to come up

"Successful private plans will

dence it needs to combat the com-
pulsory approach," the Chamber
said, adding that it had helped
defeat such a social security health
plan in Congress this year.

Wadsworth Denounces Castro in UN


United States yesterday denounc-
ed Cuban Prime Minister Fidel
Castro before the United Nations
as a liar and tyrant openly wel-
coming Communist intervention
in Cuba's affairs.
Publication of a blistering 9,-
000-word indictment of Castro
coincided with the defection of a'
woman member of Cuba's UN del-
egation who accused Castro of
transforming her country into a
terror-ridden police state.
Delegate Explains
Teresa Casuso, who holds the
rank of ambassador and alternate
representative to the UN for Cuba,
described Castro as a "man of
war" and said if free elections
were held he would lose.
Chief American delegate James
J. Wadsworth circulated the in-
dictment of Castro as an official
UN document replying point-by-
point to charges leveled by Cas-
tro against the United States in
his marathon Assembly speech of
Sept. 26.
The United States labeled Cas-
tro's speech as a mixture of "un-

founded accusations, half-truths,
malicious innuendoes, and distor-
tions of history-all aimed against
the historic friendship between
Cuba and the United States."
Detailed Rebuttal
Then, in detailed rebuttal, the
United States singled out several
Castro charges and presented
hard-hitting replies, including:-
That Castro and his leaders
have ;launched a war of nerves
with American authorities at
Guantanamo Naval Base in order
to provoke an incident.
That Cuba is only making prop-
aganda in charging the United
States with opening its doors to
"murderers and bloodthirsty crim-
inals," for it has not once asked
that these men be extradited.
Denies Payment
That Cuba has not paid for any
lands seized by the Castro re-
gime, in spite of international law.
That there are ample grounds
to believe that Castro deliberate-
ly provoked American "economic
aggression" in lowering Cuban su-
gar quotas.
