Rusk Doubts Chances
Of Castro Overthrow
Due to Police Measures

Right Split Sparked Laos Coup



Exile Aides
Hint of Plan

For Strike
French Firm Sells
New Diesels to Cuba
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON - Secretary of
State Dean Rusk said yesterday
Cuban Premier Fidel Castro's
police state measures have become
so effective that there is doubt the
bearded Communist dictator can
be overthrown in the near future.
But Cuban exile sources said
they believe now is the time to
strike against the- Castro regime
and hinted strongly that plans are
afoot to do so.
Some support for their reports
of increased anti-Castro activity
came with the revelation by the
Havana government itself of the
discovery of an arms cache near
Vinales, in western Cuba. Havana
newspapers said the arms were
part of a subversive scheme which
they blamed on Washington to
spread terror through Cuba by
attacks on economic centers.
New Setback
The United States campaign to
tighten an economic boycott
around Cuba will continue despite
a new setback: The sale by a
French firm of 20 diesel locomo-
tives to the Castro government.
That was the word yesterday
from Undersecretary of State
George Ball, who said the boycott
policy has been succeeding and
will be pushed further to make it
more effective,
Short of war, Ball said, most
effective by far is the effort to
seal off Cuba economically-a
policy of economic denial."
A State ,Department press of-
ficer, Richard I. Phillips, said
earlier that the boycott policy is
considered to be succeeding and
he added:
"Our efforts to persuade other
governments of the utility of this
government's policy will continue."
Phillips said the United States
expressed "serious concern" to
France about the locomotive sale
before the contract was concluded.
Informal protests were made to'
senior French officials here and in
While the United States eco-
nomic clampdown might not di-
rectly topple Castro, he said, the
effort already has been very ef-
fective and "the Cuban economy

THUMAIR, Aden-A company of British paratroopers fought
fierce Bedouin rebels under a pitiless desert sun yesterday in a con-
flict that an officer said might become another Korea. The 120 Britons

TOYKO W/P-The April coup in
Laws sprang from rivalry among
rightist generals and a clash be-
tween their forces still is possible,
a ,ell-informe i Laotian source
said yes- day.
The account given by the rank-
ing Laotian, who was in Vientiane
April 19 when the revolutionary
generals struck, is a different ver-
sion of an affair that threatens
to rip a shaky coalition regime
The coup generally has been in-
terpreted as aimed at neutralist
Premier Prince Souvanna Phouma,
who was put under house arrest
for awhile, and the pro-Commun-
ist Pathet Lao. These two factions
and the rightists make up the
coalition. The Pathet Lao has de-
nounced the coup.
Name Undisclosed
The Laotian, who asked that his
name bewithheld, indicated t .a
real target was Gen. Phoumi Nos-
avan, deputy premier and leader
of the right wing.
In fact, he said, Nosavan's pilot
son took off from a southern base
with a squadron of fighter-bomb-
ers to bomb Vientiane April 19
on the belief the rightist coup
leaders were holding his father
prisoner. The son was turned back
by a message from 'Photuni.
The source said it generally is
believed the real le.,dcr of sfne
coup was Brig. Ges. Soho Lan-
pl-±uthacoul, who co.nn-ands all
civilipmnand h n mita-y police in
the Vint'ane area.
Current Setup
The source gave this account of
the reaz , for the coup and the
current situation:
Siho was angry with Phoumi for
being sent on a study tour to
Herter Knocks
Many Delays
In Tariff Talks
GENEVA-Christian A. Herter,
speaking for the United States,
complained Monday at the open-
ing of the Kennedy round of tariff
negotiations that there had been
too much procrastination and too
little progress in the preparatory
talks to date.
A few minutes later, a spokes-
man for the European Common
Market, Jean Ray of the trade
bloc's executive commission, in-
dicated that the decisions the
United States and other countries
wanted would not be forthcoming
In a private meeting of the
Common Market's six member na-
tions, France dissented from a
proposed declaration of some basic
negotiating ground rules that most
other countries had accepted, but
several amendments are slated to
be offered to the declaration to
tone it down.

Soviets Seek Identification
As Nation of 'Asia, Europe'
MOSCOW-The Soviet Union, in a further aggravation of its
conflict with Communist China, demanded recognition yesterday as
an Asian as well as a European nation.
In a statement sent to all independent governments in Asia
and Africa, it denounced the "racist" policies of Chinese leaders
and by implication compared the leaders to the rulers of Nazi
Germany. It was an answer. to a Chinese effort to prevent the
Soviet Union's participation in a

is regarded as an ambitious man.
Now one of Siho's aims is to
oust some of Phoumi's lieutenants
from cabinet posts.
Contrary to communiques is-
sued by the revolutionary commit-
tee, most troops outside Vientiane
are loyal to Phoumi.
The committee's strength vir-
tually is limited to the special
forces of Siho which have a large
percentage of Thai and Vietnam-
ese mercenaries in their ranks,
the source said.
Phoumi's forces are believed to
be ringing the capital and a clash
with the revolutionary committee
forces cannot be ruled out, the
source said.
Also circulating in Vientiane
was a story that Laotian leftists
set up a shadow government in
Red China's southern city of Kun-
ming last Jan. 5, the source said.
This was at a time when the
Pathet Lao was bickering with the
other factions and the coalition
was facing' dissolution.

major Asian-African conference
scheduled for next March in In-
New Development
The Soviet statement was in-
terpreted here as a major new
development in the Communist
Observers expect the Chinese
Communists to reply that they
consider the Soviet Union an oc-
cupier of Asian territory rather
than a genuine Asian nation.
The Chinese have been saying
that large parts of Soviet territory
in Asia were seized from China in
the 19th century. The treaties con-
cluded then have been attacked
by the Chinese as "unequal" and
therefore unjust.
Now Growing
The ideological conflict and the
Sinkiang border dispute, which in
the past has been largely separate,
are thus being telescoped. This is
likely, observers believe, to lead to
even greater tension.
The statement today slaps back
at Red Chinese Foreign Minister
Chen Yi, who sought to ban Russia
from the Second Afro-Asian Con-j
ference on the grounds that itj
was neither an African or an
Asian nation.
Chen is at odds with geography,
the statement said.
