(AP) University of Mississippi stu- dents bombarded the dormitory of James H. Meredith with firecrackers into the wee hours today. It was the most serious incident since the bloody rioting when the 29-year-old Negro enrolled four weeks ago. The Army alerted an extra platoon of white-helmeted military police but did not use them.

(AP) China suffered a resound- ing defeat today when the Gen- eral Assembly rejected its latest U.N. membership bid by a bigger coming football game with Louisiana State. No arrests were made, but the MPs chased students away from Baxter Hall, the ivy-coated dorm- itory where Meredith has a two. room apartment. About 200 students peppered the walls of Baxter Hall with cherry firecrackers which make a tremendous noise. Some were hurled by sling shots. Student affairs Dean L. L. Love continually appealed to students to'disperse and by'2 a.m. the campus was quiet. "They're taking their feelings out about the football game on said one student lead- margin than a year ago. The vote was 42 in favor. Si against and 12 abstaining. Las year, the result was 36 for, against and 20 abstaining. In both cases it was far less than the re quired two-thirds majority. The main switch was among some of the new African mem bers. The vote was seen as a big vie tory for the Western powers who had strongly opposed the seating of Red China. They argued thai the Peiping regime' military ac tion -against India demonstrate! its unfitness for membership. At the last minute, some of the African countries came out for a two-China plan under which both Red China and the Chinese Na- tionalists would get U.N. seats They declined, however, to make a formal proposal. The vote was on a Soviet resolu- tion calling for the ouster of the Chinese Nationalist delegations from all U.N. organs and the seat- ing of delegations representing Red China. India, as expected, voted for the Soviet resolution in spite of Indian charges that the -Chinese Commu- nists were carrying out premedi- tated aggression against Indian territory. Priest Shoots Burglar, Holds Him For Police CHICAGO knife-wield- ing burglar was shot by a priest early today in the rectory of St. Patrick's Roman Catholic church after, police said, he fatally- stabbed the housekeeper and seri- ously wounded her sister. After shooting the burglar, the priest, the Rev. Stephen O'Don- nell, 49, tackled him and held him to the floor until police arrived. Police identified the burglar as Larry Vernon, 22, of San Antonio, Tex. "They said he broke into the rectory and invaded the first- floor room where the two sisters, Betty Walsh, 44, and Peggy 36, a cook at the rectory, were asleep. The sisters ran from the bed- room and shouted to awaken Fa- ther O'Donnell and the Rev. Dan- iel Holihan, who were asleep on the second floor. Vernon, carrying two knives, stabbed the older sister twice and slashed at the younger woman. Betty Walsh fell dead at the foot of the rectory stairs and her sis- ter collapsed on the stairway. Father O'Donnell, pastor of the West Side church, and Father Holihan told police they saw Ver- non ransacking the living room. Father O'Donnell, who had ob- tained a pistol when he heard the screams, iired once, hitting Ver- non in the left leg. Vernon was held under guard in the Cook County Hospital.

No Information As late as Monday .night solic information was impossible to.ob- tain, on such points as whether the .promised dismantling was actual- ly under way. Two probable aims, for that pol- icy appeared to be: To keep the other side guessing, during negotiations on the details, as to just how much the United States knows, and To head off public evaluations of such information' which, in the view of officials, might heat up the situation anew. Actions Extraordinary The government's actions in the news field during the past week of crisis were "extraordinary for a short-of-war situation.

The Aerobee. rocket was fired from the fa- cility of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration and im- pacted in the Atlantic 59 miles from the launching the agen-' cy .reported today. No attempt at recovery was planned. Primary aim of the flight was to measure the ultraviolet energy distribution from two stars that are comparatively young in terms of evolutionary development and are burning rapidly. Instruments were pointed specifically at the stars "Gamma Cassiopeia" and "Delta Persei." Data on the ultraviolet energy distribution of such stars is need- ed, the space agency, said, as part of a star evolution study being -conducted by the University of Wisconsin.

"In addition, the time since Chairman Khrushchev's message of Sunday'morning is too short to allow us'to expect conclusive evi- dence." Soviet Premier Nikita Khrush- chev promised in that message that Soviet missile bases in Cuba would be dismantled. Sylvester would not elaborate, but the meaning of his statement seemed to-be simply that the De- fense Department does not yet know whether dismantling work has been .started. He was asked by 'a .reporter if the United States were not tak- ing a 'chance in suspending 'sur- veillance .for two days.

(AP) U Tbant, acting secretary-general of the United Nations, left for Cuba today on a mission dedicated to "a speedy and peaceful settlement" of the situation which brought a world- alarming crisis between the United States and the Soviet Union. Smiling and seemingly confident, Thant and an 18-man U.N. team took off by chartered jet. He paused to make only a brief statement before boarding the jet at Idlewild Airport. It was in response to a single question as to whether he was confident of the success of his mission. "I am looking forward to a fruitful exchange of ideas with Cuban Premier Fidel Castro and other Cuban lead- ers with a view to achieving a. speedy and peaceful set- tlement of the he said.

Thant still-faced the -ticklish job of winning Prime Minister Fidel Castro's approval for the U.N. in- spection procedure worked ,out in conjunction with U.S. and Soviet officials. Informed sources said Thant got President Kennedy's permis- sion to convey to Castro the Presi- dent's pledge not to invade'Cuba. The United Nations announced there had been a..new exchange between Thant and Kennedy but declined to disclose the contents. U.N. sources said Thant wanted his mission smoothed as much as possible by the removal of con- troversial irritants such as the arms blockade. There was no indication in in- formation released here that any- one had suggested to Thant that he ask the White House to .remove the blockade. One question being whether the Soviet rocket techni- cians in Cuba will be sent home- presumably is among the matters presently in.negotiation. Thant is going at the invitation of Castro who a week ago loudly rejected the idea of any. U.N. ob- servers in Cuba. The Cuban lead- er backed down after Khrushchev-reversed the'Soviet position on the missile bases. Observers predicted that if Thant's mission.is'successful, the U.S. blockade would not be im- posed again. Accompanying Thant on his mission are Raul depu- ty chief of Cuba's U.N. mission: Omar.Loutfi of the United Arab Republic, a U.N. undersecretary for political affairs, and Hernane Ravares de Sa of Brazil, undersecretary for public informa- tion. Informed sources said Loutfi probably would. remain in Cuba to get the inspection machinery in motion. .Also in Thant's 18-member par- ty are three military Col.
