No dramatic curbing of this charter trade seems in prospect, lowever, and the Kremlin's min- ster of shipping said Western ves- sels aren't really needed anyhow. The British government was re- ported privately urging shipown- ers in Britain to refrain from ransporting Communist arms to 'rime Minister Fidel Castro's Red regime. Informants said Transport Min- ster Ernest Marples issued the ap- peal through the General Council of British Shipping. Similarly, a Foreign Ministry spokesman in Bonn said the mat- er of West German ships visit- ng Cuban ports is now being ex- amined and controls will be.im- posed if they are carrying war ;oods. But the charter service is prof- table and it was not regarded as jiikely that Western vessels loaded only with such cargoes as Russian oil, machinery and consumer goods could lawfully be prevented from touching at Cuban ports. This angle was illustrated in a denial by the Norwegian Ship- owners Association Thursday that Norwegian ships are carrying Russian arms or troops to Cuba.

Burleson said he has sent a letter to the controversial New York Negro congressman de- manding he fire all committee consultants working under special contract or justify their employ- ment in a hearing before Burle- son's committee. Powell has not responded in any way to the letter delivered to his Washington office by hand on Thursday, Burleson said, in- terim disapproval of special vouchers has been cleared with the House speaker and clerk, Burleson added. House self the project is justified and use of special consultants is nec- essary. He embarked on the unpre- cedented course of action, he said, because information about the in- dividuals and their employment was brought to his attention. He said he will not only disapprove claims for additional pay to these, but will reject any future contracts for additional consult- ants for Powell's committee. Most notable of the consultants is Herbert Hill of New York, a present or former official of the National Association for the Ad- vancement of Colored People, who was hired March 27, 1961, to investigate labor management irregularities in New York City for a fee ol He has been paid so far, Burleson said.

At issue in the committee staff dispute are seven of 20 consult ants Powell has hired since he rose to the chairmanship in Jan- uary of 1961. Burleson said an investigation disclosed "certain facts about the background, qual- ifications and functions of these individuals" which led him to bring the charges forcefully to Powell's attention. All 20 were hired at various times since March of 1961 to per- form specified duties as commit- tee consultants for varying amo'ints. Contracts covering their employment all have been ap- proved by Burleson's under normal procedure in such cases.
