Cold War Talks

Castro Calls
Aid 'Alms'
From U.S.
HAVANA (W) - Fidel Castro
yesterday called President John F.
Kennedy's Latin American aid
program "alms for beggars" and
again accused Washington of sup-
plying and sheltering his enemies.
The Prime Minister's three-hour
harangue against Kennedy and his
$600 million "alliance for prog-
ress" appeared to have chilled
whatever hopes remained for bet-
ter relations between Washington
and Havana.
Castro linked his attack on Ken-
nedy to a charge that the United
States had supplied counterrevo-
lutionaries with an armed speed
boat that shot up the nationalized
Texaco oil refinery at Santiago
Monday. The government press
and radio said the vessel probably
took refuge at the United States
naval base at Guantanamo Bay.
This was denied by naval offi-
He warned that if the United
States sanctions a Cuban govern-
ment in exile, on United States
soil, he will allow Puerto Rican
revolutionaries to set up an exile
regime in Havana.
"If they promote revolution\
against us" Castro shouted, "we
will promote revolution against
"Barely two years ago the Yan-
kee empire did not remember

said. "Today they are filled with
inquietude, not for the well being
of America but for fear of losing

U.S. Hopes
To Prevent
Bomb, Tests
WASHINGTON (A') - President
John F. Kennedy pledged yester-
day that the UnitedStates will
do everything possible at Geneva
next week to conclude agreements
with Russia outlawing test explo-
sions of nuclear weapons.
He announced that after nego-
tiations resume next Tuesday, the
United States will make proposals
to the Soviet Union for "a treaty
fair to all."
Kennedy made his statement
after a final conference with spe-
cial ambassador Arthur H. Dean
who wound up a month of policy-
making sessions in Washington.
After a stop-over in New York,
Dean will fly to Geneva to rep-
resent the United States in the 3-
power talks.
Dean and Kennedy's chief dis-
armament adviser, John J. Mc-
Cloy, have completed a thorough-
going review of United States
policy in the two and a half year-
old nuclear test talks. They esti-
mate that the United States and
Britain, the other members of the
conference, should know in six to
eight weeks whether there, actual-
ly is any hope of making a treaty
prohibiting tests.
If the Soviet government does
not jain in producing substantial
progress toward agreement by that
time, Dean plans to report the
state of affairs to Kennedy and
the President, high officials agree,
wil come under extremely heavy
pressure then to order a resump-
tion of weapons test explosions
Some authorities think that
failure in the round now coming
up at Geneva would mean an end
to current hopes for a test i ban

of the tax burden is clearly borne
out by various state and federal
studies," Secretary of the Treas-
ury Douglas Dillon told the House

Secretary of Commerce Luther
H. Hodges also backed President
John F. Kennedy's proposals for
raising an additional $900 million

Bill To Restore Ike
To 5-Star General
WASHINGTON (IP) - Congress
yesterday sent to the White House
an act to restore Dwight D. Ei-
senhower to the five-star general
rank he gave up to run for the
presidency in 1952.

The $12 iillion claim relates!
to only one heavy electrical
equipment item-the large out-
door oil and air circuit breakers
purchased by federal agencies and
TVA between 1951 and 1960.
A score of other major items
were sold to the same agencies
during the same years, and the at-
torney general said the circuit
breaker suit is "the first of sev-
eral contemplated."
The recent criminal bid-rigging
case involved 29 corporations and
many of their principal executives.
GE, Westinghouse and Allis-
Chalmers pleaded guilty to fixing
bids on circuit breakers. Federal
Pacific and I-T-E entered pleas
of "no contest" in connection with
this item.
The criminal case was closed
out by the Philadelphia court with
fines totaling nearly $2 million,
30-day Jail sentences for seven
executives and suspended' jail
terms for others.
