Yuma Daily Sun, The (Newspaper) - October 6, 1960, Yuma, Arizona By JONES OSBORN If you pick up the Saturday Evening Post these days, you will find some interesting articles writ- ten by America's Elder States- man: Bernard M. Baruch. Banich has given his service and his wealth to public life for more than 40 years. In fact, that is the name of his newest book, from which the SatEvePost arti- tles are taken: "The Public Years." I have already reported what Baruch had to say about the American privilege of contributing money for political purposes. I thought it was timely. Today, let's see what he says about another side of the political scene which is being talked about Uiese days: Third parties. "There were others who shared my dissatisfaction with the (Dem- ocratic) Baruch writes. "From time to time, rumblings of insurrection were heard. Or more than one occasion, earnest Democrats urged me to go- after the Party chairmanship, so as to undertake a vigorous house clean- ing. But I did not feel equipped for this task. (He is writing of 'the early did I pay heed to talk of a third party. 10c 101 S3 70 ex AND INEL THE WEATHER Highest yesterday Highest nil yesterday Invest THI Temperature at 11 a.m. today Relative humidity all 11 a.m. Average high this date 94 Average low this date 41 FORECAST to Fritiay nlRht: Mostly dear todny through Friday.

"To be effective, a citizen must choose one of the two major par- as the instrument through which he will try to work. "He may be unhappy with that party, and if so, then -he must try as he can to change it. Failing that, and being sufficient- ly unhappy, his most effective move is to punish and perhaps en- lighten the party by joining tem- porarily or even permanently the major opposition'. "The creation of splinter par- ties, however, is not only political- ly ineffective, but a danger to the democratic system." Two Hurt in Truck Crash Near Border Two El Centra men were in- jured in a one-vehicle crash on Highway 95 at Havins Corner shortly after midnight last night. Taken to Parkview Hospital were Kenneth Langford, 19, and John A. Brown, 20. Neither was believed to be seriously injured. The driver of the pickup, George Edward Brown Jr., 21, of El Cen- tro was booked by Highway Pa- trolman Bill Bcckham for drunk driving and reckless driving. Dep- uty Sheriff 0. G. Jones said he had to chase the driver on foot for several hundred yards when he tried to run away. In Somer- ton Justice Court this morning. Brown was sentenced to 5300 and 90 days in jail on the two charges. Failure to pay the fine will result in another 90 days. Driving a 1955 pickup towards San Luis, the truck missed the curve at Avenue I and County 18th Street, six and a half miles above the border. The truck sailed about 30 feet through the air, landed in the dry- canal and slammed into the opposite bank. 3 Americans Reported in Invading Unit HAVANA (UPI) The Cuban government announced today that a 27-man invasion force, including three Americans, landed in east- ern Cuba Tuesday and clashed 24 hours later with the Cuban military. The announcement said the leader of the invaders was killed, two others were captured and Cuban soldiers were chasing the other 24 in the rugged country of Oriente Province. The government communique charged the invaders came from the United States and tiiat they carried -an American Bag which was captured in Wednesday's en- counter. "The rest of the group will not be able to escape the pursuit of the revolutionary army and the peasant militia in that the communique said. It was in Hie mountains of Oriente Province w h e re Fidel Castro launched the revolution that felled the regime of Fulgen- cio Batista Jan. 1, 1959. The government said- the 27- man expeditionary force landed at Navas Bay, between Moa and Baracoa, at tne extreme north- eastern tip of Oriente. The communique did not say how they landed, whether by boat or plane. Army troops and membefts of Castro's "people's militia" were rushed to Ae' area and engaged the invaders at a placed called Hiram de Nibujon, ttre govern- ment said. It identified the leader of tiie invaders as Armentino F e r i a, known as "the and said he.was killed. He .was said to be a former captain in the private army of ex- Batista Sen. Roland Masferrer. The government said that be- sides the American Dag, govern- ment soldiers captured three mules loaded with ammunition, seven Ml rifles, book-of U.S. Army regulations and various other documents. There was no indication in the announcement as. to how the gov- ernment determined three Ameri- cans were with the invasion force. No names were given for mem. telepho- ne ctller early today warned that when Sen. Berry Ooldweter to town Saturday he will never le- D the ft! M. Macmillan, Home From U.N., Urges Patience, Hope LONDON Minis ter Harold Macmillan returned from New York today with a call 'for "patience and firmness" with the Soviet Union and hope for a spring summit conference. "There will have to be a meet- ing 10 deal with some of the out- standing questions we failed to deal with in Paris and I am very hopeful the Russians would agree lo he said on his return from the current United. Nations Gen- eral Assembly meeting. "I don't mind where we meet so long as we meet." Macmillan said at an airport news conference that the West must stand firm against the So- viet Union and expect no quick-ffor solutions. Red China Question Debated UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (UPI) General Assembly President Frederick H.Boland today called up the question of United Nations membership for Communist China for discussion at the afternoon U.N. session. East and West have clashed bit- terjy. on the subject and Soviet threatened at one point to lead the Communist bloc 'out of the United Nations if Red China is not seated. The United States has led the fight to postpone discussion on the seating of Red China for an- other year and was expected to win again by an ever-narrowing majority. It has blocked consid- eration of the question in previous years. A reshuffling of the speakers' list in the annual policy debate left room for consideration of the China representation question to- day. Parliamentary Wrangle Russia's demand to oust' Chinese Nationalists and give seat to Peiping was to have been considered at Wednesday night's se.ssio.n.. butva parliamentary wrangle caused: a postponement. In a session .lasting- until midnight the "leaders of five', ntffe trat .nation: withdrew, their luljpn calling, fpr. .an immediate meeting between 'President Eisen- hower and Khrushchev, Soviet Mum On Requested Radiation Data UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (UPI) Soviet Union has failed to keep up with the United States and other Western nations in pro- viding public information on atomic radiation, despite its loud propaganda blasts on the subject, informed sources 'said today. Tile sources said the U.N. sci- entific Committee, composed of 15 nations including the major pow- ers, has unsuccessfully pressed the Soviets for more information on such critical matters as radio- active fallout rate and level, the presence of slrontium-90 and cae- sium-137 and human exposure studies. Lack of adequate data from the Soviet Union was said to be ham- pering work of the committee which thus far has had to base its findings primarily on reports by the United States, Japan, Brit- ain and other western or pro- western nations. Ironically, Russia in its official statements has attached much more importance to the work of the scientific committee than has the Western powers. When the first general report on radiation was issued by the committee in 1958, Russia insist- ed, that it be used as the basis a mandatry nuclear weapons test ban.

Welch, Army's Lawyer, Dies at Age 69 HYANNIS, N Welch, New England law- yer who gained fame in.the Army- McCarthy hearings six years ago, died today at Cape Cod Hospital. Welch, wliose dry humor, devas- tated courtroom opponents! suffer- ed two heart attacks. He-first was stricken Sept. 8th at his Cape Cod home. His wife was with him when he died. Joseph Nye Welch was a "law- yer's lawyer" who was catapulted to fame on coast-to-coast televi- sion. The publicity led to an im- portant role in a hit Hollywood movie and later the role of mys- tery story raconteur in a TV series. The quiet life he led at home in suburban Walpole and on Cape Cod preferring to loaf and fish, "in that was in contrast to the glare of publicity upon his appointment as Army counsel in 1954. It was Welch's job to defend me Army against charges by Sen. Joseph McCarthy, R-Wis., that the service was infiltrated by Com- munists. Heated Debate at Tucson SYD LOVE United Press International TUCSON Paul Fan- nih and his Democratic foe in Hie general election, Lae. Ackerman, had another heated debate under their belt today and the prospects were good for more-of the same. Fannin and AckcrmarC only a week after their verbal exchange in Phoenix, again traded (verbal) blows last-night. This' time it was before the Tucson-Press Club and Ackerman promised' to break any personal commitments to again appear with Fannin. Press Club President Bcrnie Sed- ley said every effort would ,'be made to stage another session when more time would be avail- able. Fannin and Ackerman touched virtually every subject of Arizona's economic and civil operations and they disagreed on many of them. Fannin undressed his record for the 150 guests. He said he was proud of his school financing pro- gram, which calls for aHarge share of a one per cent sales tax increase to go to school opera- tions; of his junior college pro- gram which has created a com- mittee to recommend junior college expansion to the next legislature; of his traffic safety program which has brought in Hie Insur- ance institute for highway safety to analyze Arizona's traffic prob- lem and make recommendations for improvement at no cost to tax- payers, and for creation of the Arizona Sonora west coast trade commission which Fannin said is getting results. Ackerman listed numerous situ- ations in which he said Arizona was behind times. These included: in which Arizona has six per cent of its students on national average. in which many tea- chers are taking jo'bs in California. in which he saic there is no state program for ex- ceptional children. Ackerman said Ari- zona's health program was worsi of the 50 states. "We must have meetings of appointed and elective state lead- ers, who have not met as a group or two Ackerman said. He called for an emphasis in uring industry, which would cre- ate new jobs; for 'an improve! education program; for tax relie for home owners and small bus! nessmen and for an improved wa ter program. "Lack of leadership is making us drift into a state of mora Ackerman said.

The Grand Jury resolution in Imperial County is the result of a Special session held Sept. 30lh. The resolution was passed unanimous- ly. Such a program, states the res- olution, can be carried out under existing, provisions of the state's welfare and institutions code. "At special session of the 1S60 Grand toe resolution reads, "the testimony of law enforce- ment aflfeWs, school officials, and MercMeeVnirtnti indicated clear- ly that the prevention of the entry into Mexico of unescorted juve- niles would be of benefit to the youth of Imperial County and the "Now therefore be it concludes the resolution, "that the Grand Jury shall and does rec- ommend (o (he Board of Supervis- ors of Imperial County that ade- quate funds immediately be ap- propriated and allocated to the sheriff's department in order that the sheriff's department may es- tablish and maintain a 24-hour surveillance of the Port of Entry it Calexico to prevent unauthor- iwd juvenile crossings into Mex- ico and that such a program by the sheriff's department be initiat- ed at the earliest possible date."

He said juveniles can easily obtain liquor in Mexico and can, "by asking any taxi manage to ob- tain marijuana. Echols is a re- tired federal narcotics agent. Additional support for similar federal law is found in California, and in the Mexican state, of Baja California, as well. U.S. Representative Dalip S.

Rep. Saund quot- ed the Mexican governor as say- ing: "These juveniles coming into Mexico are a headache and a problem to authorities in Mexico. We do not want them They arc always a source of anxiety and trouble to us. The governor said that, in Mex- ico, this has to be a federal prob- lem since the federal government retains control over all lands along the international border. There- fore he could not speak officially on the matter. lUut. he told Rep.

This glimmering emerges from two Congolese cap- ital of Leopoldville and from the United Nations in New York. From Leopoldville comes word of steadily mounting defections among the followers of sometime premier Patrice Lumumba. A trickle swelled to a stream with a report of the wholesale defec- tion of 29 of the 44 senators and deputies from Lumumba's own Eastern Province. They denounced him as a Com- munist attempting a dictatorship by terror. Last July 1 when the former Belgian Congo emerged as an independent state and Lumumba as its premier, the capricious for- mer beer salesman and embez- zler held bis office only by the slimmest of margins brought about by a shaky coalition. Of 137 votes in the Congolese house of representatives, Lumum- ba received 74. Another Step The coalition long since has disappeared and the mounting opposition to Lumumba assures that he no longer could obtain the necessary majority in parlia- ment. There remains another step. This was proposed by Indian Prime Minister Jawaharlal Hen- ru in his attempt before the Unit- ed Nations General Assembly to moderate the chilling winds of the cold war. No leader should be imposed on the Congolese peo- ple, he said. Rather, he should be a man selected by the Con- go's own parliament. The United Nations, he said, should work toward a revival of parliament as quickly as pos- sible. With a successor to Lumumba legally elected by parliament, the last ground would be cut from the Soviet claim that Lumumba remains the legal premier of Congo,
