The first of 10 U.S. Air Force C135 jet transports lifted off the runway at the big Rhein-Main air base near Frankfurt and flew off into heavily overcast skies. It was due in Calcutta Sat- urday. A round-the-clock airlift was planned, and relief crews were flown to Calcutta to take the big planes back to Germany for re- loading. The airlift is bringing fast-firing light infantry weapons, including mountain artillery, sorely needed to counter the Communists' su- perior firepower. Warns Against "Magic" U.S. Ambassador John Kenneth Galbraith warned the Indians against expecting American arms alone to' "work magic" against the Chinese invaders. "The great task remains with the Indian he declared. "We are happy to help with equip- ment to stop aggression but equip- ment is only part of the prob- lem." Galbraith said no American mil- itary instructors were coming with the arms, which he described as "standard stuff." He also empha- sized there were no plans for U.S. military personnel to go to the frontier. A Long Loan? The ambassador told newsmen the United States is considering' supplying the emergency arms shipments on a long loan basis but said the terms have not been worked out. He said American economic aid to India would not be affected by the arms recent- ly announced loans of million for thermal power development. India's request for Western mili- tary aid marked a sharp depar- ture from a long-standing policy of cash purchases, to maintain In- dia's determined neutralism. Ini- tial shipments of new British weapons have already arrived here. Terms under which the aid is being furnished are .still being negotiated. Heavy Arms Next Heavier U.S. weapons are ex- pected to be sent next. Prime Minister Nehru called for calm in the face of the Chinese aggression and chided thousands of university students whose anti- Chinese demonstrations Thursday he called "the acts of a weak people." is not the time for these he declared, urg- ing his countrymen "to keep your heads cool and not be carried away by anger or emotion." Police estimated people- most of them university men and women marched through the streets of the capital all day Thursday, destroying signs mark- ing Chinese business houses and shouting for expulsion of the Red Chinese forces on the border. Po- lice guarded all Chinese business; houses and the headquarters of the Indian Communist party, which a mob looted on Wednes- day. Kiots Aren't Decent Nehru said the demonstrations exceeded the limits of decency. "By these acts you are not strengthening the government's hands in defeating Chinese ag- gression but only weakening he said. As the mobs demonstrated out- side Communist party headquar- ters, the party council concluded two days of. heated debate with a strong pro-Nehru resolution de- nouncing the Chinese Reds as ag- gressors and calling on all party members to support the govern- ment during the national emerg- ency.

(NEWS Staff Winners Of Peace Awards Start'War'During Banquet NEW YORK (AP) A Nobel Prize-winning scientist and an economist-author got into a heated argument over peace at a meet- ing Thursday night of advocates of nonviolence. Some spectators made noisy exits as the scientist, Dr. Linus C. Pauling, and the economist- author, James P. Warburg, ex- changed words. Only moments before the out- burst, both had received the 1962 Gandhi Peace Award from Pro- moting Enduring Peace Inc., a nonprofit, nonpolitical, religious and educational organization. The meeting began quietly enough with prayers, amenities and a of praise to Warburg from Adlai E. Stevenson, United; States representative to the United' Nations. Warburg listened attentively while Dr. Pauling told of the perils of nuclear war, said that President "Kennedy had made the bomb threat an instrument of American foreign policy and had unfortunately enabled Premier Ni- kita Khrushchev to seem the peacemaker in the recent Cuban crisis. Then came Warburg's turn. He said he was surprised to hear Dr. Pauling suggest that "we (the United States) are-the source of! the trouble." i At that point, a man in the au-1 OKLAHOMA Partly cloudy to clear tonight and Saturday; cooler east tonight: a little warmer Saturday; low tonight 34-49; high Saturday 55-64.

In a letter to the governor, dience rose, waved his hands and yelled.

Meanwhile, Dr. Pauling was try- ing vainly for the approval of the moderator on stage for a right of reply. When Warburg finished, Dr. Kirtley F. Mather, president of Promoting Enduring Peace Inc., told the crowd it was possible "to get along courageously in a fine spirit, one with another, even though we are not always in agreement." ______________ Sylvester Denies News Control By Government WASHINGTON eminent Information subcommit- to tee will undertake a critical re- view of plans for release of gov- ernment information under vary- ing conditions of crisis.

But he re- minded his people of all the So- viets had done for them and as- serted, "We are friends of the So- viet Union." inspection on Cuban soil would be "one more attempt to humiliate our country" and would violate Cuban sover- eignty. Sources at U.N. headquarters felt that Castro either would soft- en his stand or would announce the Soviet Union had completed dismantling its bases and U.N. inspection therefore no longer was necessary. All Finished Acting U.N. Secretary-General U Thant said after his conferences Tuesday and Wednesday with Cas- tro he had. been informed the dis- mantlement of the bases would be completed by today. U.S. aerial observation, resumed Thursday along with the naval blockade, was expected to shed light on the dismantling progress. Castro, in a two-hour speech taken up largely by reading a' transcript of his talks with Thant, revealed that the Soviet Union had proposed that the Internation- al Red Cross inspect its Cuba- bound ships to verify that they were not transporting arms. Thant said the Red Cross had agreed to the proposal provided Cuba agreed, but that he had communicated the proposal to the U.S. government. No Comment There was no immediate com- ment from Washington. In addition to insisting on U.S. withdrawal from Guantanamo, Castro repeated his previous de- mands for cessation of U.S. eco- nomic measures against his re- gime, attacks .by Cuban exiles, and "violations of our aerial and naval space by North American (U.S.) planes and warships."

In an effort to check the statute, the reporter scanned various law tomes, including Title 47, Okla- homa Statutes, and each reference to the section contains the same ambiguous language. Also, several attorneys were contacted and they all agreed: 11-103: "No person shall willfully!

Reds' Mars Ship Zooms Into Space MOSCOW unmanned Soviet space ship was estimated early today to be miles on its way to Mars, Moscow Ra- dio reported. The one-ton space craft was launched from a sput- nik whirled into orbit Thursday. The Tass news agency said all systems were functioning normal- ly after the first few hours of the flight. The Soviets calculate the vehicle, called Mars 1, will pass close to the planet in some- thing over seven months. The ship is equipped with a camera and radio transmitters all goes send photographs of Mars and other data back to earth, giving scien- tists valuable clues to the old question of whether or not life ex- ists on the planet.

A federal court jury acquitted him of charges that he illegally borrowed from trucking concerns. Acquitted also were the two-trucking executives and three corporations charged with him as a result of the 1954 transaction. But prison still awaits the 68- year-old former labor leader who preceded James R. Hoffa as boss of the vast Teamsters organiza- tion. Beck was temporarily re- leased from a federal prison near Seattle to stand trial here. The jury, seven men and five women, had tried to report itself deadlocked ia considering the loan case. U.S. Dist. Judge Wil- fred Feinberg sent them back into deliberation, and 45 minutes later the acquittals were announced. A scattering, of applause fol- lowed the announcement. Scores of Beck's relatives and friends had waited in the courtroom through the afternoon and early evening hours that the jury de- bated the case after a trial which began Oct. 1. Acquitted with Beck were Roy Fruehauf of Birmingham, Mich., and the firm he formerly headed, Fruehauf Trailer Co. of Detroit; Burge Seymour of Washington, Conn., and the company he heads, Associated Transport, Inc., of New York; and the Brown Equipment and Manufacturing Co., a subsidi- ary of Associated Transport. retary-General U Thant had men- tioned it during their Havana talks. Another possibility under con- sideration, it was understood, was for Red Cross inspection of Soviet ships bound homeward from Cuba, This would provide verification that at least some missiles were being removed. U.S. sources said today the pro- posals were under consideration in Washington. Details were not spelled out, but the proposed in- spection of Cuba-bound vessels by the Red Cross apparently was in- tended as a measure to modify the U.S. Navy quarantine. Wheth- er the Red Cross representatives would operate from U.S. Navy vessels was not known. Such measures, if agreed upon, would still leave unsolved the big question of on-the-scene inspection inside Cuba'to verify the dismantl- ing and removal of Soviet mis- siles. In his broadcast Thursday night, Castro said he not only had reject- ed U.N. inspection but that he was "equally against" such in- spection by the International Red Cross.

Whatever That Means Asked whether a blockade ia still in force to prevent more offensive weapons from being shipped into Cuba, a Pentagon spokesman said the Navy ships continue on station. Authoritative sources disclosed Thursday night that high altitude U2 flights over Cuba have been halted and the watch is being kept through low level photographic missions. These government sources said there has been no scaling down, .in the degree of aerial surveil- lance.

Officials are virtually certain that the U2 piloted by Air Force Maj. Rudolf Anderson Jr., Green- ville, S.C., was knocked down by a Soviet antiaircraft rocket. And they believe the rocket was launched by Soviet missile- men manning the 22 antiaircraft rocket bases known to be opera- tional in Cuba. This information developed as the U.S. Navy stood guard over the shipping lanes into Commu- nist Cuba. No One Knows If there have been any ship in- tercepts since the arms blockade was clamped on again Thursday, they have not been announced.
