John F. Kennedy's administration

the United States is planning
armed aggression against Cuba,

Roa sent a 'letter to Frederick
H. Boland ,of Ireland, president
of the General Assembly, linking
the United States with an attack
by an armed speed boat on the'
nationalized American refinery at
Santiago -on Monday. Roa said
one sailor was killed and several
soldiers and civilians wounded in
what he described as "an act of
international political piracy."

WASHINGTON (P) - President

Nikita S. Khrushchev of stalling-
has speeded up by a month its
timetable for reviving arms cut

E. Stevenson said last night he
thought the United States and

reached agreement as to the time"

Wants Review
kennedy wanted the time to
allow a review by his disarmament
advisers headed by John J. Mc-
"Now we have suggested August
at the latest," Kennedy told a
news conference.
With the United States negotia-
tions on a treaty to outlaw atom-
ic weapons tests leaving yester-
day for resumption of that par-
ley in Geneva, Kennedy said Mc-
Cloy is now "working full time on
developing an American position
on disarmament .. we are going
to concentrate our attention on
disarmament now."
Seeks Progress
"We hqpe progress can be
made," he added, "and we will-
I will consider what usefully could
be done to advance progress."
Khrushchev was said to have
charged during a talk in Siberia
last week with United States Am-
bassador Llewellyn Thompson that
the United States was footdrag-

United States naval base at Guan-
tanamo. United States naval offi-
cials there denied it. Roa called
the base "an active center of con-
spiracy, subversion and espionage
against the Cuban government
and people."
Roa said the incident was part
of preparations by the United
States for an invasion of Cuba,
undertaken with the encourage-
ment and support of Kennedy,
Charges Harassment
He said that the former admin-
istration had used such devices as
armed violence, economic aggres-
sion and diplomatic harassment
in a vain effort to topple Castro.
"The present administration,"
he added, "has not only followed
the aggressive interventionist pol-
icy of. its predecessor, but has
quite openly intensified it, using
the most spurious and arbitrary
means at its disposal, in clear
violation of the fundamental prin-
ciples of the charters of the UN
and the Organization of Ameri-
can States."
Roa said the incident was fur-
ther justification for the com-
plaint now before the General
Assembly that the United States
is planning to invade Cuba.

come, President John F. Kennedy
asked Congress to advance $1 bil-
lion to the labor departient to
finance the added benefits dur-
ing the rest of the fiscal year end-
ing June 30.
The statement said this money
would be used during the "pre-
sent recession period to provide
additional benefits for workers
who have exhausted their regular
benefits under state laws."
Under the legislation, an esti-
mated $927 million in emergency
payments would be made avail-
able to jobless persons who have
been out of work so long they
have used up their regular unem-
ployment compensation rights.
As passed by the House two
weeks ago, the cost would be fi-
nanced on a nationwide basis
through a four-tenths of one per
cent increase in the payroll tax
in 1962 and 1963. The basic rate
now is 3.1 per cent.
The increase would yield an es-
timated $984 million which would
be used to reimburse the Treasury
for money advanced to all the
states to cover the emergency
benefit payments.

National Roundup
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON - Government agents yesterday raided a $500,-
000 a year numbers ring in the Pentagon and arrested 35 employes.
Joseph S. Bambacus, United States attorney for Eastern Vir-
ginia, said the gambling operation was centered in the Defense
Supply Service, an army agency that handles office supplies for the
military departments.
He said some of the messengers who ride through the Pentagon
corridors in bicycle carts picked up bets for the lottery.
"The significance of today's raid," Bambacus said, "is organized
crime's ability to make such unbelievable inroads into the nerve
renter of our nation's defense establishment."

CINCINNATI -- A price tag 10 times too high has been placed
on oral polio vaccine by the Public Health Service, Dr. Albert B.
Sabin declared yesterday.
The developer of the vaccine in question based his assertion on

Congress for a $1 million appropriation with which to purchase sup-
plies of the live virus vaccine.

WASHINGTON - President John F. Kennedy yesterday chose
J. Kenneth Galbraith, Harvard economics professor, to be ambassador
to India.
Galbraith, born in Ontario, Canada, served during World War II
as a deputy administrator of the Office of Price Administration and
as a director of the United States Strategic Bombing Survey.
WASHINGTON - The Justice Department said yesterday it
would take civil rights cases to court -only after giving states a last
chance to act.
The policy was outlined by Burke Marshall as he testified at a
Senate hearing on his nomination to head the department's civil
rights division.
Attorney-General Robert F. Kennedy later confirmed the policy
to newsmen. He said, in fact, that the department already had used it.
NEW YORK - Henry Cabot Lodge, a newspaperman before he
entered politics, was appointed yesterday as general consultant to
Time, Life and Fortune magazines. He will serve in the field of
international relations.

Quiet Announcement
Verwoerd, a mild-mannered man
of 66, made the announcement
in a quiet way and no voices were
raised from any side at the closed
meeting. Informants quoted Ver-
woerd as saying:
"This free association of states
cannot hope to survive if instead
of devoting itself to cooperation
on matters of common concern,
Commonwealth prime ministers
are going to continue the practice
of interfering in each other's do-
mestic affairs, and if their meet-

for attacks on fellow members."
