Cuba Crisis










Late Selling
NEW YORK (9) - The stock
market yesterday suffered its worst
beating in more than four months
as fears over the Cuban crisis
brought a powerful wave of late
There was open talk throughout
the financial community about the
possibility of a clash between Rus-
sian shipping and the United
States Navy ships of the Cuban
blockade and this brought "scared
selling," analysts said.
The late pressure weakened the
defense issues that had shown
strength most of the day, leaving
virtually all categories on lower
Dow Jones Average
The Dow Jones average of 30
industrials-slid 10.54 at 558.06 and
the Standard and Poor's average
of 500 stocks dropped 1.47 at 53.49.
The Associated Press average of
60 stocks was off 4.4 to 208.0, with
industrials down 6.2, rails off .1
and utilities off 3.9.
It was the sharpest one-day drop
since June 12, when the average
went down 4.7.

Commodities, however, soared
again, as they had on the first

Analysts noted that defense is-
sues-rails, steels and aerospace
stocks-fought the downtrend as
investors looked to them to benefit
from renewed military activity.
Many analysts said that in their
opinion, barring all-out war, the

Pledges Aid
To Kennedy
President Dwight D. Eisenhower
called on all Americans last night
to assist President John F. Ken-
nedy in the present crisis.
But he also signalled for the
GOP to press its campaign for
victory in the Nov. 6 elections.
"For though we support the
President in foreign crisis," the
former President said, "we do not
have to support him when he
speaks or acts as head of a poli-
tical party; and indeed we do not."
Free To Ask
- Eisenhower also said that "we
are free to ask and to learn how
we arrived at our present state,
even in foreign affairs."
And when the present crisis has
passed into history, he asserted,
"it will be entirely proper then
to examine and analyze and cri-
ticize decisions and actions taken."
In remarks prepared for a rally
of Adams County Republicans at
Gettysburg College, Eisenhower
said: "We meet in the aftermath
of a grave message of the Presi-
dent of the United States. The
decision he anounced last night
may seriously affect the lives of
all Americanis and the future of
the Republic.
Resolutely Ennunciated
"In -the circumstances of this
present time, as described by him,
the decision had to be made. It
had to be resolutely enunciated by
the one man who speaks for us
all in critical foreign affairs.
"As is all crises, America-as a
unit-follows her constitutional
leader. We must pledge him our
help in whatever way we can be
of help."
Kennedy, the White House an-
nounced, has cancelled all his re-
maining campaign dates in order
to concentrate on his presidential
tasks in the crisis.

Sign Law for Aid;
Ban Communists

the foregin aid bill,

(P)--President John F. Kennedy signed yesterday
a $3.9 billion appropriation which is 20 per cent

below the amount he had requested.
The bill contains a clause prohibiting aid to any country providing
military or economic assistance to Cuba or which permits its ships to
haul cargo for the Castro regime.

Asks Student
Loan Fund
Democratic candidate for con-
gressmen-at-large Neil Staebler
has proposed a federal self-liqui-
dating loan fund for public and
private students.
Repayment, he suggested, would
be made through an actuarially
determined charge on each stu-
dent's income tax return, begin-
ning one year after he is out of
school. Congress would appropri-
ate sufficient money each year to
hold the revolving fund at a $200
million level. It would become self-
liquidating as repayment is made.
Staebler advised that participat-
ing schools would administer the
program "to insure protection
against federal control." Grants
would be based on tuition, room
and board and other education-
related needs.
He said that the "critical na-
ture" of competition between the
United States and Russia forces
the need for expanded education-
al opportunities.
Staebler said that he supports
the Kennedy administration's pro-
gram. "But in the area of helping
students finance their education,
I don't believe we have gone far

Money for the regular assistance
programs is included in a $6.2 bil-
lion package to finance a variety
of related international activities.
Major Categories
The major categories of funds
made available for spending or al-
location in the year ending next
June 30 and the reductions im-
posed by Congress are:
1) Economic grants $225 million,
down $110 million;
2) Special support for poorer al-
lies receiving military aid $395 mil-
lion, down $86.5 million;
3) The President's foreign assist-
ance contingency fund $250 mil-
lion, a cut of $150 million.
Less Than Requested

Latin America gets $525 million,

Funds available for long term
low or no interest loans to de-
veloping countries $975 million, or
$275 million below the Adminis,

Direct military assistance was
cut $175 million to a reduced total
of $1.325 billion.
Also provided are $8.9 million
for economic development in the
Ryukyu Islands, $14.9 million for
general migration and refugee as-
sistance, and $73 million to com-
plete payment of war damage
claims in the Philippines.

Hit: Towang
Reds Use Automatics
Employed in Korea
TOKYO (P)-Red China propos-
ed yesterday a cease-fire and troop
pullback along the bitterly contest-
ed India-China border.
The Chinese also called for a
summit conference of Prime Minis-
ter Jawaharlal Nehru and Pre-
mier Chou En-lai to settle their
border dispute.
Peiking proposed that troops of
both nations pull back 20 kilo-
meters (12.5 miles) from where
the fighting is now going on. If
India agrees Peking said, the Chi-
nese would be willing to withdraw
its troops in the northeastern bor-
der sector where they have pene-
trated into territory long claimed
and occupied by India.
There was no immediate Indian
reaction to the statement. How-
ever, a Chinese call last Sept. 27
for a similar troop pullback was
rejected by the New Delhi govern-
ment. India said then that it would
not enter into any talks under dur-
ess or the continuing threat of
Chinese Communist troops, arm-
ed with the same type automatic

of Towang yesterday.
The influential center of Tibetan
Buddhism is at the end of an In-
dian jeep road into the steep jun-
gled Himalayas along the route
the Dalai Lama took in fleeing
from the Reds in 1959.
An Indian spokesman said the
Chinese launched a new attack
aimed at Towang across Bum Pass,
an important trade route from
eastern Tibet.
Indian forces, outnumbered and
outgunned, were forced to fall back
but were reported holding their
own on other sectors of the flam-
ing frontier.
Towang is about 17 air miles in-

boundary that Peking has repudi-

Aden in ancient times was a
prosperous center of the incense
trade. Later it was a dwindling
fishing village that sheltered pi-
rate vessels. It was colonized by
the British 123 years ago as the
only good harbor between Egypt
and India.
New-Found Prosperity
The colony's new-found pros-
perity comes from a $125-million

ship passing through the Suez
Canal and from Britain's big mili-

As a prelude Britain and five
ministers of Aden agreed to merge
the colony, 75 miles square, into
the South Arabian Federation.
Protected Principalities
The federation is a sprawling
series of British-protected prin-
cipalities with picturesque names
like Quishn, Yafa, Haushabi and

19th century. Tribal raiding was

Case Appealed
The latest development in the
case of a Brooklyn youth denied
admission to Brooklyn College be-
cause his gradepoint was .7 points
shy of minimum requirements took
the form of a city appeal of an
earlier Brooklyn Supreme Court
decision which upheld the stu-
dent's right to register.
The case is threatening to swing
into a full-scale investigation of
New York City University admis-
sions procedures.
The youth's average was 84.3 per
cent. President Harry Gideonse of
Brooklyn College said if the stu-
dent were admitted, "this would
cal for the admission of an addi-
tional 1,997 students in the four
senior colleges of the City Uni-
In his decision, Dr. Gideonse
was supported by Board of Higher
Education Chairman Gustave Ros-
enberg, who explained that "to
admit one student who gets a
court order would flood us with
thousands of appeals and similar
cases. . . If we admitted them,
just that many who were quali-
fied by their 85 per cent average
would have to be turned away."
In suing for admission to
Brooklyn College, the plaintiff, 17
year old Melvin Lesser, a Brook-
lyn high school senior, contended
that he had taken a special honors
program in high school and the
heavier work load caused his aver-
age to fall below 85 per cent.

The move to link sophisticated

states stirred a wave of protest.

gas riots Sept. 24 as the colony's

and unrepresentative body-ap-

Last Chance
Abdullah Asnag, peppery 29-
year-old labor leader who seeks
to lead the colony to Independ-
ence, says: "We are determined to
go all the way to oppose it with
peaceful resistance and civil dis-
obedience. The struggle must end
with the British leaving here al-
together. We shall be independent.
Britain has lost her change to
negotiate for keeping her military
base here."
Asnag heads Aden's 17,000-man
Trades Union Congress and its
People's Socialist Party, by far
the colony's strongest political
body. The congress has called 250
strikes in three years-despite a
no-strike law.
