He said consisted entirely of medi cines, drugs, medical sup plies and baby foods th latter considered by him ir the medical category. The New York lawyer said he i optimistic that the Cuban prim minister would accept. He ack nowledged their talks left cer tain points unresolved. He declined to give details, o to put a price tag on the medica supply offer. He said this couli not be done because-much of the material would be donated anc some purchased at cost. Million Castro originally demanded million in cash for freedom of thi prisoners, seized in the ill-fated invasion of April 17, 1961. Donovan flew in Thursday from Castro had kep him cooling his heels much of the time since last Sunday. At a news conference he saic he thought he might be called back for Castro's decision further parleys in a day or.two. He took pains to emphasize sev- eral points, obviously to knock down rumors and speculation cre- ating excitement and controversy in this country. No Breakdown 1. There has been no breakdown in negotiations. He and Castro are "still getting along." 2. Despite his optimism, he can- not guarantee that the prisoners eventually will be released. "It totally depends on Castro and his he said: 3. No cash will be sent to Cuba as part the deal. 4. His only conferences with federal officials have been for the purpose of making certain no laws are violated. Denies U. S. Part In Washington, Edwin Martin, assistant secretary of state for Latin American affairs, said the U.S. government is taking- no part in the negotiations. He conceded that "if the deal is consummated" it will involve a U.S. government contribution. The Cuban families committee has spent months collecting mon- ey for the ransome. It can accept cash and other gifts under federal tax deduction provisions. Many large corporations and wealthy Cuban' exiles have contributed. Donovan says he has no plans to confer with President Kennedy or other high officials. The negotiator seemed a bit worn during his news conference. Asked if he were optimistic, he responded: "I'm always optimis- tic about anything I engage in until I abandon it, and I am not abandoning this."

The 80-year-old ruler of the Roman Catholic Church spoke at a special audience for the envoys ent to the Vatican by 85 govern- ments for the opening of the Ro- menical Council. With Michelangelo's awesome "Last'Judgment" .as a backdrop, the pontiff told the envoys assem- bled in the Sistine Chapel .that war today would "mean the de- struction of humanity." He called" attention to the vast fresco, "the seriousness of which gives one much food for thought" and warned, "We must indeed render an account to God."

Only three bills of any importance were still to be cleared out of the way, and Senate and House leaders were hopeful but. not burning with confidence that they would be wrapped up by late afternoon or to- night. Senate Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield of Montana summed it up by saying adjournment should possible today, but "I would not bet on it." Quorum? Both houses were skating on thin ice as far as a quorum was concerned. The House produced more 'than half of its membership Thursday, but the Senate has not risked a roll call this week. It al- ways presumes a quorum to be present unless questioned. The reason for the low attend- ance is that many members have nustled home to campaign for the Nov. 6 congressional elections. There was a brief flicker of nope that shop would close up Thursday night after( the pro- longed and bitter row over the agriculture money bill was set- tled. Slight Problem This hope was crushed by a stubborn controversy over the bill authorizing future rivers and :har- Dors and flood control projects, the water-projects measure. -House-and -Senate- try again to.iron out their differ- ences over the bill, after two.pre- vious fruitless sessions. The Senate version of the meas- ure authorizes more than bil- lion worth of projects, the House bill billion. Passage of this legislation is not essential, and there has been talk it might be put 'over until next year. But the more than 200 proj- ects involved have -so much politi- cal appeal in an election year that strenuous efforts 'are being made to compromise it.

(NEWS Staff India, Chinese Fight On Northern Frontier New. DELHI, India. (AP) Prime Minister Nehru said today that the Indian army has been ordered to drive Chinese Communist troops from Indian territory on the northeast fron- tier. Nehru said his government had ordered the army "to free our territory in the northeast frontier." Fighting erupted on the Hima- layan frontier in the northeast on Wednesday. In the fighting since Wednes- day, Nehru estimated the Chi- nese Communists suffered near- ly 100 .casualties. This was nearly three times the figure reported by Peiping Thursday and indicated that the battle is continuing. Red China lodged a "strong- est and most serious protest" with 'the Indian Embassy in Peiping, accusing India of in- vading Chinese territory and spreading the flames of war. Nehru spoke to newsmen before taking a plane for a three-day trip to Ceylon. He'had consulted with Defense Minister V. K. Krishna Menon and Foreign Ministry officials on the border crisis Thursday. Lt. Gen. B. M. Kaul, one of India's leading officers, was sent to head a.newly organized army corps on the Northeast Frontier last week. An Indian government spokes- man said the fighting broke out Wednesday after a Chinese Communist soldier hurled a grenade at an Indian outpost. The Indians reported their casualties at 17 killed or wound- ed. Peiping said 33 Chinese troops were killed or wounded. Radio Peiping claimed the Indian troops "fled in con- fusion, leaving six corpses and arms and ammunition behind." The radio said the Foreign Ministry in Peiping lodged a strong protest with the Indian Embassy. There was no word whether the fighting was continuing. But each government accused the other of rushing up reinforce- ments. The scene is the Himalayan border near Chihtung, north of the Kechilang1 River.
