Yuma Daily Sun, The (Newspaper) - October 10, 1962, Yuma, Arizona U.S. Denies Red Charge Of Spying MOSCOW (UPI) The United States today "categorically" re- jected spy allegations against oust- ed U.S. assistant naval attache L. Cmdr. Raymond Smith, 41, and "vigorously" protested "manifold violations" by Soviet authorities of his diplomatic immunity. The U.S. move was made in a note delivered today to the for- eign Ministry. The U.S. note said the American Embassy here "categorically re- jects all allegations of impropei behavior on the part of Command- er Smith and specifically that he was engaged in espionage." "The embassy vigorously pro- tests the manifold violations bj Soviet authorities of the rights and immunities appertaining to Commander Smith as a duly ac- credited diplomatic officer of the embassy." The note charged Smith, ex- pelled from the Soviet Union Mon- day on espionage charges, was "physically assaulted and forcibly deprived of. item.-; of personal prop- erty by allegedly nonofficial Soviet "During this period of illegal de- tention he was refused permission to communicate with the embassy and was subjected to threats of violence." it said. The note chained Soviet militia men (police) refused to honor bis diplomatic card. And it said the United States expected the Soviet the necessary disciplinary meas- ures" so as "to assure tiiat there will be no recurrence of violation of the diplomatic immunities of members of the embassy staff." Embassy sources said Smith's expulsion from the Soviet Union appeared a clear case of retalia- tion for the expulsion by the Unit- ed States of two members of the Soviet Union mission to the Unit- ad Nations. The ousted Soviets were Yev- geny M. Prokhorov and Ivan Y. Vydrodov. The United States charged they had hern buying U.S. defense secrets from Sailor Nel- son C. Drummond, 33. Drummond has pleaded innocent. Smith was to have sus- tained a bruise on the left shoul- der and to have been scratched. 10c THE WEATHER Highest yesterday %1 Lowest tilts morning 53 Temperature at 11 a.m. today, S4 Relative humidity at 11 a.m. 4S Average hlKh this date 93 Average I-rx tnis date 65 KORKCAST to Thursday: Clear, with little change In tem- perature today through Thrusiay.

The scientists told a news con- ference, however, that the wider miss will not spoil the scientific value instruments designed to study the atmosphere and surface of Venus. As the trajectory is now calcu- lated, the scientists said, the -147- pound spacecraft will pass "well wilhin the region where the sci- entific planetary experiments are expected lo he very effective." After Mariner U was launched Aug. 27 il embarked on a course that would have carried it miles away from Venus if its path had not been corrected. On Sepi. nine days after launch, a course changing rocket aboard the craft was fired by ra- dio command from the earth. At first the scientists thrnnght course change would carry Mariner II to a point about miles from Venus Dec. 14 after a 109-day flight of ISO.2 million miles. More precise tracking in the days since then, however, dis- closed that the mulcourse rocket had added two miles an hour too much to the craft's velocity. The cause of this overcorrection is not know.

The House approved a speed- up procedure which cleared the way for immediate negotiations to resolve a Senate House dispute over terms of a "pork barrel" public worte bill. Compromise agreement on the multibillion dollar measure is one of the chief roadblock to final adjournment of the first Kennedy Congress. It already is the longest election-year session since World War II. SATURDAY HOUSE DEADLINE House leaders had indicated earlier they had little hope of getting out before Saturday. Sen- ate Democratic Leader Mike -Mansfield, who had set Thursday night as a target, urged all Sen- ators still in town to stay here. Officials of both houses ad- mitted that the Agriculture De- partment money deadlock was the main block to long-awaited congressional adjournment. Meantime, the nation's doctors, lawyers and other self-employed persons watched the White House for President Kennedy's action, if any, on a bill to let them set up tax deductible private pension funds. Congress finally passed the hill this year after 11 years of effort by its backers. The decision on the pension bill was a top issue as Congress flushed for adjournment by the end of the week. But deadlocks on an agricultural appropriations measure and a public works bill still had to be resolved. The House was set to stamp final approval today on an appro- priations bill including S100 mil- lion that Kennedy asked for pur- chase of Nniled Nations bonds. The purchase was authorized in a bill passed earlier. The Senate Foreign Relations Committee called a closed meet- ing to consider a House passed resolution backing up the Presi- dent in a firm stand on Berlin. Approval was expected. Any hope that Kennedy might lave had for killing the pension bill with a ixjcket veto after Con- gress quit vanished when the law- makers last week halted their ad- journment rush and settled down to wait for tonight's deadline on the bill.

Following the Thalidomide Congress resurrected pre- viously discarded provisions of the administration drug control bill. At the bill signing ceremony, Kennedy paid tribute to Sen. Es- tes Kefauver, D-Tenn., principal congressional advocate of tougher drug controls. The President gave Kefauver the first pen he used to sign the bill. Kennedy gave one of the other pens to Dr. Kelsey. The President said he was glad to approve legislation to permit consumers "to buy safer and more effective drugs." He said the bill "is a major step forward in giving protection to the Ameri- can The bill, rushed through Con- gress in the wake of the Thalido- mide scare, would allow the FDA to suspend use of any drug it feels posed an immediate health hazard.

The Army said today's troop move leaves about regular Army and National Guard troops in the Oxford area.

(Sun Staff Photo) Cardinal Says Prospects Good for Christian Unity VATICAN CITY Fran- cis Cardinal Spellman of New York said today that prospects are good for Christian unity aris- ing from the 21st Ecumenical Council, the highest assembly of the Roman Catholic Church open- g Thursday. "There are good prospects and everybody is tremendously in- terested." Cardinal Spellman told newsmen at the airport when he arrived this morning to complete the 225-member American delega- tion to the council. I'm hoping and praying for the success of the council." Nearly .'1000 Catholic prelates and 50 non-Catholic "observers" and "guests" from all parts of the earth were on hand for the colorful opening ceremonies in the Basilica of St. Peler's. mother church of Christendom and larg- est in the world. Historically, this gathering will be known as ihe second Vatican Council, the rirst to be held in almost a cen- tury. The purpose of the great coun- cil, as stated by Pope John XXIII is to get his own church of 500 million members to "bring itself into step with modern times." In line with this, he extended a "genile invitation" to other Chris- tians to join with the church of Rome, with .the eventual aim re- storing universal Christian unity. There was little hope of bring- ing this about immediately, but it is a long-range goal. Bishop Fred P. Corson, president of the World Council of Methodists and Bishops for the Philadelphia area, made this clear when he com- mented that "we are here simply as observers, not. as negotiators." ...rick 2nd pgh Speaking Cooling Weather Forecast Here High temperatures will drop a bit by Friday, or so forecasters at the U.S. Weather Bureau in Yuma believe. The temperature drop will be ac- I companied by some light winds. Overnight tows will remain about the same. U.S. Officials Believe Reds Still in Laos WASHINGTON offi- cials said today they believed "several thousand" Communist North Vietnamese troops were still in Laos in violation of an Inter- national accord signed last sum- mer. The State Departmenl, however, was reluctant to make formal complaint of violation preferring for the moment to work quietly through diplomatic channels. Under a 14-nation agreement signed at Geneva July 23, all for- eign forces were supposed to be out of Laos by last Sunday. Rus- sia and the United States were among the signers. Tresh Blasts Three-Run Homer in 8th NEW YORK Rookie Tom Tresh slammed a three-run homer in the eighth inning today to give the New York Yankees a 5-3 victory over the San Francisco Gianls in the fifth game of ths World Series. It was the first World Series vic- tory for New York's Ralph Terry. The triumph gave the Yanks an 3-2 edge in the series and put them in the driver's seat.
