Defeat Try
To Reduce
Aid Measure"
ate defeated yesterday an attempt
to slash $785 million from a com-
mittee-approved $4.4 billion for-
eign aid appropriations bill.
It was only a tentative victory
for the Administration in the first
skirmish on the big bill for mili-
tary and economic assistance
abroad, however, and left senators
free to seek reductions in each of
the separate items in the measure.
The vote temporarily sustained
the recommendations of the ap-
propriations committee that the
Senate restore $79 million (of cuts
totaling $1.1 billion) made by the
Sen. William Proxmire (D-Wis),
had asked the Senate to reject the
increases and substitute all the
House cuts but $7.4 million in ad-
ministrative expenses.

Caribbean Nations
Urge Stiffer Position<
WASHINGTON (P) - The State
Department, host to a hemisphere
conference on Communist Cuba
opening here today, says United
States policy "is to get rid of the
Castro regime and Soviet Com-
munist influence in Cuba."
The official policy declaration,
was not directed to the Foreign
Ministers and other representa-
tives of the 19 American republics
gathering in Washington but was
circulated among members of the
U. S. Congress.
The declaration leaves unan-
swered the question how the policy
objectives are to be attained. Ex-
istence of the statement became
known when it was mentioned in
weekend television appearances by
members of Congress. It was cir-
culated last week.
Some Latin American nations,
particularly in the Caribbean area,
appear ready to urge a much stiff-
er position than that now taken
by the U. S. and seem ready for
military action if that seems
The State Department policy
declaration repeated .previously
expressed views of President John
F. Kennedy and other U. S. offi-
cials that the military build-up in
Cuba does not justify U. S. mili-
tary action at present against the
Fidel Castro dictatorship.
State Department officials were
vague in outliningyesterday what
they do expect the conference to
accomplish. Presumably this is to
avoid setting up objectives diffi-
cult of attainment since opinions
vary widely among Latin Ameri-
can nations.
They range from the hands-off
Cuba policy advocated in the past
by such major countries as Mexico
and Brazil, to a military attack
proposed by such small nations as
The State Department said the
conference would be informal,
with no agenda, no formal speech-
es, no voting, and no resolution
to be adopted.
It added there might be a clos-
ing declaration of principle if the
nations wish to make it.
The United States was reported
ready to make three major sug-
1. Establishment of Caribbean
military organization.
2. A hemisphere-wide ban on
travel by Communist agents. l
3. A strengthening, in whatever
ways possible of internal measures

ACLU Seeks
To Intervene
In Court Case
The American Civil Liberties
Union has decided to ask permis-
sion to intervene in the Michigan
Senate reapportionment case if
the United States Supreme Court
agrees to hear the case.
In its status as "friend of the
court" the ACLU will contend that
the Fourteenth Amendment means
that the vote of every citizen must,
count equally in the apportion-
ment of the Michigan Senate.
The case is a review by the Su-
preme Court of a decision by the
Michigan Supreme Court last July
in the case of Scholle versus Hare
that the Senate apportionment in
Michigan denies equal protection
of the law. Implementation of the
Michigan order was delayed by
Supreme Court Justice Potter
Stewart until the entire court
went into session and could re-
view the decision.


dollar impact of the walkout.
"If this strike is allowed to con-
tinue for any length of time," said
a White House statement, "Its
effects will have such grave and
far reaching repercussions on our
total domestic economy and upon
our ability to meet our urgent
commitments around the world
that the national interest would be
gravely jeopardized."
Respect Picket Lines
Later, an official of the Long-
shoremen's union announced that
seven other maritime unions had
agreed to respect picket lines and
walk off all American ships that
dock in struck ports.
The strike began at midnight
over the issue of productivity on
the docks. The 145 affected ship-
pers want the International Long-
shoremen's Association to reduce
the size of dock work gangs.4

had cleared most ports of ships.

To Lift. Up
New Guinea
HOLLANDIA, New Guinea ()-
Sudjarwo Tjondronegoro, Indone-
sian Deputy Foreign Minister, ar-
rived yesterday at the head of a
party of 80 technicians to spear-
head the drive to turn this stone-
age island into a shining example
of modern development.
Tjondronegoro, Indonesia's dip-
lomatic expert on West New
Guinea, landed only a few hours
after a rain-soaked ceremony end-
ing the Netherlands' 134-year rule
as a prelude to an Indonesian
takeover next May 1.
Interim Period
He will be Indonesia's represen-
tative in the territory in the inter-
im period while it is under the ad-
ministration of the United Na-
tions temporary executive author-
Most tof the 80 Indonesians who
came aboard the Indonesian air
force Hercules, an American-made
transport, were members of Presi-
dent Sukarno's West Irian Devel-
opment Corps.
To Send Helpers
Sukarno has announced he will
send thousands of teachers and
other technical helpers to West
Irian, the name Indonesians give
to West New Guinea, to develop
the 161,000 square miles of swamp
and jungle into which the Dutch
poured $35 million a year and got
almost nothing in return. Most of
the 700,000 native Papuans still
live in a stone-age culture.
Tjondronegoro, who participat-
ed in the secret negotiations with
the Dutch near Washington which
led to the peaceful turnover of the
territory, told reporters Indonesia
may start a mass migration of
settlers here later.
He said as many civil servants
and technical assistants will be
sent to aid the UN administration
as are necessary.

ceived a telegram from Antwerp,
Belgium, which reported that Bel-
gian dockworkers would boycott
American ships and refuse to un-
load cargoes from this country.
He said he expected similar ac-
tion from dockworkers in England

Negotiations Collapse
Negotiations collapsed last Sat-
urday between the ILA and the
shipping association after weeks
of fruitless bargaining. William V.
Bradley, ILA president, called his
75,000 men off the job at 12:01
a.m. (EDT) yesterday.
Gleason, who announced the
support of the seven maritime un-
ions, said such solidarity in the
industry was unprecedented and
served as a notice that "this is not
a lone wolf fight."
