Casiro Sees Rockets in Russ Parade MOSCOW (AP) Fidel Castro got another fleeting glimpse today of the types of Soviet rockets Pre- mier Khrushchev pulled out of Cuba last year at President Ken- nedy's insistence. The Cuban prime minister ap- peared with Khrushchev in the place of honor atop the Lenin mausoleum at the annual May Day parade in Red Square. He appeared to enjoy the mili- tary review and workers' parade, which U.S. Ambassador Foy D. Kohler boycotted because of Cas- tro's pressi.'ce. Kohler watched (he celebration on a television set in his residence. Castro conversed animatedly with Khrushchev as lhe Soviets rolled out a 10-mihute review oi their military hardware. Among the weapons that sped past the reviewing stand were 500 to 700-mile range rockets similar !o those withdrawn from Cuba during last year's crisis. Western observers spotted nothing new among the rockets shown. The Cuban leader reportedly was deeply offended by Khrush- chev's failure to notify htm in ad- vance of the decision to withdraw the rockets under American pres- sure. Cwtro, dressed in white shirt, tie and dress uniform for the first lime since he arrived in the Soviet Union last weekend, was the cen- ter of attraction in Red Square the lhe District' tional law."

"Such the treasur- er said, "are almost wholly dis- tributed back to municipal units in areas where the taconite is processed, just as are the levies on taconite itself. The March 1 payment for Erie Company's line was covering operations for the last six months of 1962, a drop of some from a year ago. But the Reserve Mining's payment ol was some more than the for the six-month period a year ago." Together the Reserve and Erie taconite rail lines paid in gross earnings taxes for nil ol 1962, an increase of some over 1961 The most recent addition to tin treasury, jusl over million in gross premium taxes, is about an even million dollars more than the levies collected in oper- ations by taxable insurance firms in the stale.

Delta Queen Easy Winner LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) _ Old Man River must feel like a young- ster borne two racing steamboats again in a duel thai surely brought as much shouting as that of the Natchez and the Robert E. Lee. The Delta Queen won (lie Ohio River dash by a margin of more than a mile over the Belle of Louisville Tuesday night. And if Uie finish wasn't so exciting the sheer novelty made up for it, as thousands along the Kentucky and Indiana shores waved and cheered, More than passengert the boats appeared lo have the lime ot their lives, despite gray skies and chilly weather. The Belle, a 43-year-old stern- wheeler fresh from a year's layup for recondilioning, was decked Out in red, white and blue bunting. Tlie Queen, last passenger vessel on the river, carried a large ban- ner on its bow, saying "Best Wish- es." The race started before dark but the lighls of the Louisville skyline were twinkling when the Belle made it to the dock, about 20 min- utes behind the Queen.

A black and while plastic grip from one side of lhe slaying wea- pon was found in (lie Thompson home, where the slaying occurred March 6. The Luger found Tues- day had one matching grip. Mrs, Thompson was beaten about the head and stabbed in the neck with a paring knife. She died in a St. Paul hospital without identifying her slayer, other than Ic say it was a man. Goenner said a search for weapon started Tuesday as a re- sult of a .the source nf which he wilhheid. It came as the- liamsey County Grand Jury as- sembled in St, Paul to hear sev- eral witnesses in the case. The gun was turned over to St. Paul police for laboratory analy- sis. Del. Li. George Bar.kley, St. Paul police homicide head, syid, 'It looks like the same gun we've been looking for." Goediwr said the weapon which could have been tossed from a car, was found on private farm proper- :y along County Road 34, about three miles north of Elk River. :t was found about 4 p.m. after a .hree-hour search in which Slier- burne and Ramsey County depu- ties, St. Paul police and Goenner look part. The weapon was dis- covered by Goenner's deputy, George Moos, after several swamp areas had been combed. _ The Thompson slaying gun waj inked to a Minneapolis burglary. It was stolen from the apartment of Wayne F. Brandt Feb. 14. Brandt identified the grip iound in the Thompson home as one of pair he had made for his Luger. Btrkhf said earlier that Henry W. BiilleF, 28, Columbia Heights, had admitted taking the gun in :he Brandt apartment burglary. Picked up with Butler in the burg- ,ary was Willard Ingram. 35 a former resident of the Elk River area.

The Senate voted 33-27 to accept a minority report of the Senate Finance Committee the bill for passage. The committee had voted Mon- day night 10-8 to kill the bill, after adopting two amendments.
