(Weather roundup, 10-A.) Cuba Aid To Angola Asserted LISBON, Portugal (UPI) Cuban President Fidel Castro told thousands of cheering Angolans Sunday he would keep sending tanks, planes and soldiers into their country and did not have to account to the United Stales for any of it. "Our duty is to maintain military collaboration while the Angolan forces are organized, trained and Castro said, according to reports reaching Lisbon today. "The day will corne when Angola has sufficient military units, tanks, cannon, airplanes and soldiers to confront all imperialist aggression. "How many years, how many (Cuban) soldiers Will stay in Angola? We don't have to discuss that with 'Yanqui' imperialists." The rally, held in Luanda's First of May Square, was described by the Angnlan National News Agency as the highlight of the Cuban leader's trip. Castro arrived in the former Portuguese colony Wednesday for his first visit since he sent thousands of Cuban troops to help President Agostinho Neto's Marxist MPLA liberation movement in the bloody civil war of 1975.

NEW YORK (UPI) A letter said to have been written by Bruno Hauptmann three months before he was executed for the 1932 kidnap-murder of Charles A. Lindbergh Jr. has come to light after 41 years, it was reported today. The New York Times and the Daily News said the letter, written in German and addressed to Hauptmann's mother, was intercepted by New Jersey prison authorities because its publication abroad might be "embarrassing." The letter disclosed nothing new, consisting largely of a detailed repetition of discrepancies in the state's case against him which Hauptmann maintained were a proof of his innocence. He complained that Edward J. Reilly, his chief counsel at the trial, "simply did not come to me, or if he came for three to five minutes, he was often according to the Times and News. The letter was dated Dec. 27, 1935, and was addressed to Hauptmann's mother, Pauline, at her home in Kamenz, Germany. Hauptmann was executed on April The letter was intercepted by Col. Mark 0. Kimberling, warden of Trenton State Prison, who had it translated and apparently sent a copy New Approach To Flu Urged NEW ORLEANS (UPI) Dr. Jonas Salk, developer of the polio vaccine, said the country's approach to flu vaccines should be changed. He said mass innoculation programs in advance of a feared outbreak of a particular flu strain is like "closing the ba rn door after the horse is oul." to then Gov. Harold G. Hoffman, Ihe newspapers said. A note to Hoffman was found with the Hauptmann letter in a personal file that Kimberling kept until he died in 1964 and which his wife kept until her death, according to the published reports. "1 am of the opinion that it (the Hauptmann letter) might receive some press comment over in Germany, which might result in some unfavorable reaction, or, at least in placing us in an embarrassing position for having released it from state Kimberling reportedly said In his note to the governor. Aviation's Worst Disaster (Related stories, PageU-A.) By ARTHUR HERMAN SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE, Spain (UPI) Provincial governor Antonio Oyarzabal said today thai the worst aviation disaster in history occurred Sunday when a Pan American 747 turned into the path of a Dutch KLM 747 roaring down the runway at 186 miles per hour for takeoff. Oyarzabal said 502 persons were killed in the collision and subsequent explosions so fiery that the asphtill runway melted. He said 72 of the K'M persons aboard the two jumbo jets survived the accident hut that some of them were in critical condition. The U.S. Embassy put the death toll at and the Spanish Aviation Ministry put it at 5M.

Twist, 21. and her daughter Melisa, 1, all of Rochester, N.Y. All those on the KLM jet were killed. The Pan Am plane carried 390 persons, mostly American tourists from Los Angeles. A total of 318 of them were killed and 72 survived. The Spanish news agency C'ifra said the flight recorder tapes of a conversation between the Pan American pilot and the control tower showed thai the pilot apparently misunderstood the lower instructions to stay on a taxiway and turned onto the takeoff runway by mistake. Pan Am spokesman and avialion experts said it was far too early for the contents of the so-called "black box" to be studied or analyzed since that required sophisticated equipment not available on Tenerife. U.S. Embassy press spokesman Ed Harper said a 41-member learn of the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board has arrived to help Spanish authorities in the investigation.
