Cuban Rebels Attack



Revolt Attempt








Fail in Try
To Capture,
Kill Leader
Invaders, Guards
Killed in Skirmish
HAVANA, Cuba (P)-Armed reb-
els stormed into the presidential
palace yesterday in a bloody revo-
lutionary attempt to seize or kill
President Fulgencio Batista.
Twenty men were reported killed
in battle inside the palace.
Twenty others were reported
killed in scattered fighting outside
the palace.
Batista Survives
The 56-year-old President, a vet-
4 eran of violence, survived and di-
rected a successful tank-led coun-
terattack on rebel supporters out-
side the palace.
Fifteen out of about 40 invad-
Ing rebels and five palace guards
'were reported killed within ear-
shot, of Batista.
The attack on the palace appar-
ently was in two phases:
1) A 40-man invasion team to
tackle the palace guard and fight
into Batista's private quarters and
take him.
2) A covering armed force to
deploy in nearby buildings and
*keep up an outside attack.
The invasion force broke past
the guard and into the first floor
where Batista has offices He was
on the second floor finishing a late
luncheon with two Caoinet minis-
Heavy Firing
Heavy firing around the palace
lasted nearly three hours.
The government announced last
night the rebel forces at the pal-
ace had been beaten back and calm
prevailed throughout the island.
The group that invaded the pal-
ace apparently clashed with the
inner guard after storming the
outer gates, while others fired on
the palace from buildings nearby
in a concerted attack.
Students Armed
The general attack was made by
students armed with machine
guns, pistols, rifles and grenades
in the heart of Havana.
Police and army and navy forces
joined in a mop-up operation.
Tanks lined up in front of the
palace and extended a block be-
yofid in each direction.
Anti-Batista student organiza-
tions were the apparent leaders of
the attack.

A lively controversy has been
raging at Queens College, Flush-
ing, N.Y., over a recent ruling by
Provost Thomas V. Garvey that
Daily. Worker Editor John Gates
would not be allowed to speak on
campus today as scheduled.
According to The Rampart,
Queens College student newspaper,
Gates was invited by the Marxist
Discussion Group to participate
in Academic Freedom Week, slpcn-
sored by the Student Senate.
The invitation was later 'p-
proved by the Faculty Commit-
tee on Student Activities, but with
some reservations.
Lack of Balance
The committee noted a "lack of
balance" in the program, which in-
cludes appearances by civil rights

attorney Osmond Fraenk' and
Socialist Norman Thomas.
In prohibiting Gates' visit, Gar-
vey declared, "It would be unreal-
istic and inconsistent with the in-
tent of the by-laws and pertinent
resolutions of the Board of High-
er Education for us to bring to
this campus a person who was
convicted of conspiring to teach
the overthrow by force and vio-
lence of the very government
which we are obligated to up-
hold . ."
The Provost was referring to the
fact that Gates was indicted in
1949 for violation of the Smith Act
along with 10 other top Commun-
ists. He was later convicted.

Israel Urges
Gaza Be Kept
From Egypt
WASHINGTON () - Israel ap-
pealed to the United States last
night to keep Egypt out of the
Gaza Strip as an object lesson that
no nation can break its Interna-
tional commitments.
Israel's Ambassador Abba Eban,
in a half-hour call at the State
Department, also told the United
States in effect that Israel feels
it has a moral commitment from
President Dwight D. Eisenhower
that Israel's withdrawal from Gaza
shall "not be in vain."
Purpose Told
The purpose behind the Israeli
action appeared to be to try to get
the United States to take a strong-
er stand concerning Egypt and
the Gaza Strip. In return the hope
seemed to be that United Nations
Secretary General Dag Hammar-
skjold also would be firmer.
Hammarskjold reported last Feb.
22 that Egypt was expected to re-
frain from ecercising its right un-

the Gaza Strip. On the assumption
that this would hold up, Israel
