U.S. Authorities Question Six Cuban Raiders MIAMI, Fla. men de- scribed by the Coast Guard as raiders who sank a Cuban patrol boat and rescued two wounded Cuban militiamen east of Havana are being questioned by immigra- tion authorities. The unidentified men were taken to Key West by a Coas Guard boat from the British is land of Cay Sal Sunday night They -had sought refuge at Ca> Sal after the raid. Newsmen were not allowed to talk to them. The two militiamen were flown from the tiny island off the south east Florida coast to Miami by Coast Guard helicopter. They were listed in fair condition at a hospital after surgery for bullel wounds. District Immigration Director Edward Ahrens said one of the two, Sgt. Filiberto Suarez Lima 40, asked for asylum in the United States. The other man was identi- fied as Cpl. Miguel Cao Mendina, about 30. Ahrens said the two told immi- gration officers they and two other military men were on patrol duty in an 18-foot boat Friday night, off Varadero Beach, east of Havana. Cao and Suarez said a larger boat opened fire on them, sinking their vessel and wounding Cao in the groin and Suarez in the leg. The patrol boat sank, and men on the larger boat lifted the two mil- itiamen from the water. The other two men were swimming to shore when last seen, Suarez said. The six walked off the Coast Guard boat at Key West, climbed into waiting automobiles, and were whisked off to immigration offices for preliminary question- ing before being sent to -Miami. 'One had a bandage on his hand, but none of the disheveled group appeared to be seriously hurt. Suarez' account of the incident conflicted with a Cuban govern- ment announcement that a pirate vessel had attacked a pleasure yacht, apparently killing two per- sons. A Cuban exile, Antonio IJustillo, said the raid had been planned by 50 Cubans in Miami. Bustillo identified the raiders as Manolo Quiza, Manolo Casanova, Eddie Moore, Juan Espinola, Jorgfe Ro- driguez and Roberto Parson. Catholics May Relax Rigid Marriage Rules Bad Weather Forces Delay In A-Blast By JOHN .GALE ROME Catholic and Protestant clergymen here express belief the current Second Vatican Council will discuss the question of mixed marriages and the vows the Catholic Church de- mands of non-Catholics who mar- ry Catholics. Some Protestant churchmen have expressed hope that the Catholic Church in the curren' council might soften its insistence on such vows, but Catholic sources available today expressed doubt any such change'will be made. Sources close to the conference said there is talk of the church also giving, status and recognition for the first time .to other denomi- nations and ending the tradition- ally aloof attitude of the Church of Rome. Protestant (AP) Unfavor- Court Asks Ruling In Quota Case Farmer Grows Wheat As Feed; Draws Penalty WASHINGTON (AP) The-Supreme Court direct- ed U.S. Dist. Judge T. Whit- field Davidson of Dallas to- day to-rule on an Oklahoma farmer's protest against a civil penalty for .asserted overplanting of wheat. The court acted in a case involving Evetts Haley. Jr., 'of Seguoyah County, Okla. He had been assessed a penalty for planting 43 acres'of wheat when his quota under the Agricultur- al Adjustment Act was zero. The case has been the subject of a 3-year legal debate. In 1959 Supreme Court told Judge Davidson he was'wrong in ruling against the penalty. Davidson said he thought the Supreme Court had been misled hr the litigation and he again ruled in favor of Haley. The Justice Department took the case to the Supreme Court again, contending Davidson had declared the marketing act constitutional as applied to Haley. Haley's wheat was fed to livestock on his farm. Unconstitutional? In reply to the Justice Depart- ment, Davidson said his opinion had not held the act unconstitu- tional. The opinion referred to Haley's contention that ,the act was illegally administered'in his case. The Supreme Court, in .an un- signed opinion, tried today to clear the whole thing up by asserting that the 1959 xuling held the act consitutional as applied to the com- plaint against Haiey. The high court said that David- son's action "evidently rested or a misconception .of the 'scope and of the 1959 decree. It -then directed. _that Davidson's- should Decision .Ordered It told him to .decide on Haley's defense alleging illegal administra- tion of the act. It said that if his defense is found insufficient a ,fina judgment 'in favor of the Unite. States should be entered at once, If Haley's defense is found good, shoulc U.S. Assures West Germany It Will Support Civilians' Right To Access In Berlin Escapees Aid Friends (AP) Eight East German refugees savored .their first full day of freedom in West Berlin today because two friends returned.. for, 'them after' making their own escape three weeks ago. One of the four women, in the group 'collapsed with when she reached the West Sun- day and was'-reunited with her parents. The woman had spent six months in jail for an earlier un- successful 'attempt to flee, Names of. ,the refugees -were withheld to prevent reprisals against relatives and friends -in East Germany. The refugees told this story: Two men, who escaped 'three weeks ago, decided after long dis- cussions in 'a refugee they would try to return for their friends.' They swam a stretch of water on -the border Saturday, cut through barbed wire'On the east bank ;and went .to 'the home of a friend. There, they -met 'three men friends, two .girls and .two mar- ried couples. All said, they were willing to make -the escape at- tempt. 'One of the 'two leaders warned: "Whoever loses his nerve, screams or anything, we'll knock him unconscious and drag him with us. There's only one thing for get through." Under coyer of .darkness, the party made its way to the .border, intending to take the route to the hole in the wire previously cut by the two men. One of the.leaders went ahead to spy out the terrain. He found East German guards searching the area. .They had dis- covered the hole in the wire and repaired it The second guide, alarmed by the- delay, moved forward and hearing voices, thought his friend had captured. He crawled back to 'the others and told what happened. One of the. single-men in the party be- came alarmed and withdrew from the escape attempt. But the first guide had not been caught. After the guard patrol moved away, he found another es- cape route, located the others in the party, and. led1 them to the spot. The group managed to escape being seen in the "death a 30-yard-wide cleared area along the border where guards shoot at anything moving.

To many observers here, the most fascinating aspect of the council is the change it .represents in the Catholic attitude to the oth- er Christian churches. Exchanges between Pope John XXIII and other Christian leaders have rare- ly been more cordial. The Russian. Orthodox Church has two observers here for the first formal contacts between the churches for nearly 10 centuries. Another 16 churches or religious bodies are represented in talks with the Vatican Secretariat for Church Unity, official contact on a scale -that has never been at- iempted previously.
