Enrollment Rises
Leading the floor fight for the
bill was Rep. Edith Green (D-Ore).
She pointed out the college en-
rollment in 1960 was 3.6 million,
that it would rise to more than
5.2 in 1965 and that it would reach
7 million by 1970.
Also joining in strong support
of the bill were many House lead-
ers, including Majority Leader
Carl Albert (D-Okla) and Minor-

fortable margin, the vote repre-
sented a noticeable drop in popu-

Last year, a similar bill passed
the House by a vote of 319-79
compared with this year's 287-113.
College aid legislation was spon-

part of the 24-point $5.3 billion

Congres last spring.
The House ignored the admin-

into a number of single bills.
The Senate has not divided the

Tight Security Plans
Reported Near Havana
HAVANA (P)-The Castro gov-
ernment has alerted its militia
forces and moved large concentra-
tions of artillery and anti-aircraft
batteries to the northern coast of
Cuba, it was learned last night.
The military moves coincided
with widespread reports of a pos-
sible new invasion threat by anti-
Castro forces. The military was
understood to be watching partic-
ularly for any attack from Nicara-

There was no evidence of alarm
in Havana, but tight security
measures were reported outside the
The Cuban command apparent-
ly braced for a repetition of hit-
and-run raids reported two weeks
ago along the northern coast.
Many oil refineries and factories
are located there.
The Castro government said
those raids proved there was a new
plan of aggression against Cuba
and declared at the time that the
country would take up new meas-
ures to assure its defense. Troops
were deployed along the northern
Blames U.S.
After raiders were reported to
have shelled and machinegunned a
metal plant Aug. 19, the govern-
ment issued a communique accus-
ing the United States of direct re-
sponsibility for the attack. ,
A spokesman for a Cuban exile
group called Mambises Comman-
dos told newsmen in Guatemala
City that his organization carried
out the metal plant raid. He said
the commandos operated from new
secret bases in the Caribbean and
from inside Cuba.
At a news conference Aug. .20
President John F. Kennedy said
there had been a further decline
in the number of Russian troops in
Cuba, but added it was difficult to
say precisely how many remained.

Meanwhile, in Costa Rica, re-
ports circulated of unusual activity
among Cuban exiles in that coun-

Administration leaders had hop-
ed to pass it in the Senate and
then use a Senate endorsement to
sway House undecideds. The close
vote killed that idea.
House members are lukewarm
to the welfare aims of the pro-

WASHINGTON (') - Railroad
management named yesterday its
two members of the arbitration
board that will rule on the main
issues of the long work rules dis-
pute, moving swiftly under the new
law that headed off a nationwide
strike only hours ahead of a mid-
night deadline.
They are J. E. Wolfe of Chicago,
chairman of the National Railway
Labor Conference and chief nego-
tiator for the carriers, and Guy W.
Knight of Philadelphia, chairman
of the Eastern Carriers' Confer-
ence on Labor Matters.

by tomorrow.
Then the four are to name three
others representing the public. If
they cannot agree on selections,
the task falls on President John
F. Kennedy. Under the legislation
passed only Wednesday and quick-
ly signed by Kennedy, the board
must be completed in 16 days.
The new pressure kept the trains
rolling today, but there were still
cautious lights ahead.
