Appleton Post-Crescent (Newspaper) - October 21, 1959, Appleton, Wisconsin APPLETON POST-CRESCENT VOL LI No. 100 44 A, B APPLETON-NEENAH-MENASH A, WIS., WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER ASSOCIATED PRESS WIRE SERVICE Price Seven Cents UN Assembly Near Vote on Tibet Issue Asian Delegates Worried Over Possible Effects United Nations, N.Y. The general assembly headed for a vote today on Tibet, an issue that has sparked sharp east-west exchanges and caused apprehension among many Asian delegates. The vote will come on a watered-down resolution by Ireland and Malaya to put the assembly on record reaffirm- ing the right of the Tibetan people to choose their own way of life. Backed By U.S. The resolution makes no mention1 of communist China .or the charges that the Pei- ping government brutally stamped out an anti-commu- nist uprising in the Himalay- an land of the Lamas last spring. The sponsors elimin- ated such charges in the hope they would allay the fears of Asian neutrals. The resolution received strong support from the Unit- ed States, which acpused the communists of trying to frighten delegates away from discussing the issue. U.S. Ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge made the charge after Soviet Deputy Foreign 'Minister Vasily V. Kuznetsov declared consideration of Ti- bet by the assembly would 'only aggravate the cold war. Heads Drive to Oust Castro as Cuban Chief New York A form- er brother-in-law of Cuban Premier Fidel Castro says he heads a movement called the "White Rose" with thou- sands of guerrillas fighting the Castro regime in Cuba. Dr. Rafael Diaz-Balart, 33, said last night his movement respects everyone t h at works against Castro but is working with absolute inde- other pendence from every group." Diaz-Balart, who said he has known Castro since both were students at the Univer- sity of Havana in 1945, said the White Rose movement was organized in cells with an organized underground in every neighborhood" of Cu- ba. He said guerrilla fighting was going on in Roiente, Pin- ar del Rio and Las Villas Provinces. Independent Movement His sister Mirta was mar- ried to Castro in 1948 and is the mother of the premier's son Fidel, Jr. They were di- vorced in 1955. Diaz-Balart said his move- ment is independent of form- er Cuban President Fulgen- cio Batista, now living on the Portuguese island of Madei- ra, and the Dominican Re- public regime of Generalissi- mo Rafael Trujillo. He discussed the movement after a pro-Castro newspaper in Havana, Diario Nacional, charged yesterday that form- er officials of Batista were openly recruiting volunteers in New York. Hints at Accord on Missile Agency Fate Brucker Tells About Talk On Issue at White House Judge Orders Temporary Writ to Halt Steel Walkout Cuban Army Leader Arrested by Castro Accused of Treason and of Plotting Coup in Effort to Unseat Havana Government Camaguey, Cuba The commander of Prime Minister Fidel Castro's armed forces in Camaguey province, accused of treason, surrendered quietly today after radio calls by the government rallied peasants and workers against his head- quarters. Castro himself flew from Havana. Between and workers and machete-armed peasants swarmed the streets of this provincial capital in a calljto arms against Maj. Hu- bert Matos. Armed action proved unnecessary. Maj. Camilo Cienfuegos, the Cuban army commander, walked unopposed into Mates' headquarters and arrested BY BEM PRICE Washington Sec. of the Army Wilber M. Brucker hinted today that the fate of the army ballistic missile ag- ency, deeply involved m the space race with Russia, was settled at a White House con- ference today. Brucker was a late and not previously announced participant in a meeting be- tween President Eisenhower and his top space advisers. The session was set up to solve the problem of how to push the United States into stronger competition with the Soviets in the outer reaches. Ike May Talk Emerging from the talks some time after the others Brucker was asked if there had been a decision on the missile agency and its crack team of space experts headed by Dr. Wernher von Braun. He first replied that was a matter in the province of the president. Asked if that meant there had been no decision, Bruck- er answered: "I didn't say that." About the same time the White House said Eisenhower probably will make a state- ment about the meeting aft- er he arrives in Augusta. Ga. The president left directly after his space conference for a 5-day golfing vacation. Specific questions before the White House conferees in- tsluded the disposition of the whole ballistic missile agency and specifically what to do about the Huntsville project for development of the Sat- urn booster, a huge cluster of eight rockets with li million pounds of thrust.- That is half again as much thrust as anything the Rus- sians are known to have and would hurl bigger payloads farther into space. The Pentagon does not need that much push for military rockets, and has been pulling back on supporting the pro- gram. him on a charge of plotting a coup d'etat to unseat the Castro government. A critic of some phases of Castro's agrarian reform pro- gram, Matos offered his resig- nation Monday when the prime m i n i s t e r's 29 I year-old brother Raul was named the new minister of the Cuban armed forces. The appointment gave Raul com- plete control of Cuba's armed forces. Staff Loyal to Him About 15 members of Ma- tes' staff, in refuge with him at the military headquarters, told Cienfuegos they support- ed Matos' actions. are loyal soldiers, but loyal to the wrong the army commander told them. He did not order their ar- rest. Matos was house arrest ordered into at his official residence within the military headquarters. His wife and four children live there with him. Matos was described by residents here as "an able and honest leader ytho re- fused to go as far to the left as some of his associates."

The stay was granted to per- mit the convict-author to file a new appeal. The appeal must be filed by Nov. 3. Counsel for Chessman had asked Justice Douglas to grant a stay, but Douglas re- ferred the request to the full court. In granting the stay, the court noted that Chief Justice Warren had disqualified him- self from the case. Warren is a former governor of Califor- nia. State May Reply The decision to grant a stay thus was made by eight jus- tices. After the filing of a new ap- peal on behalf of Chessman, the state of California may file a reply in opposition to further supreme court consid- eration of the case. The eight justices then will decide in closed conference whether they will grant a hearing on the new appeal. A refusal to do so would mean that Chessman's conviction with the penalty would stand. Announcement of the court's action was contained in an order which was distributed to newsmen by the tribunal's public relations officer, B. E. Whittington. No reference was made in the court chamber to the trib- unal's action when it opened its session for today. The court's order stated: "The application for a stay of execution of the death pen- alty imposed upon the peti- tioner presented to Mr.' Jus- tice Douglas, and by him re- ferred to, the court, is grant- ed pending the timely filing1 and the consideration of a pe- tition for certiorari. The ap- plication for extension of time to file such a petition for cer- tiorari is denied. The chief justice took no part in the consideration of these appli- cations." George T. Davis, San Fran- cisco attorney for Chessman, had asked Douglas to extend to Nov. 18 the time for filing a new appeal. This was re- jected in the court's order, giving Davis 3 to file. only-until Nov. President Flies To Augusta, Ga. Leaves on 5-Day Vacation With Golfing Companions Augusta, Ga. Presi- dent Eisenhower arrived here at a. m. in a heavy rain for a 5-day vacation that is hoped will provide sunshine to help him shake a lingering cold. The temperature was about 54 degrees as the president's plane, Columbine II, touched down at the Augusta airport. He flew in the 4-engined pro- peller plane he used when he first took office because the airport is too small for his new jet transport. The trip from Washington took 2 hours, 9 minutes. Accompanying the president on the trip were two of his golfing companions, Cliff Rob- erts, president of the Augusta National Golf club, and Ellis Slater, a member of the club and chairman of the board of National Distillers. Also accompanying the president were his son, Maj. John Eisenhower, Maj. Gen. Howard M. Snyder, White House physician, and Press Sec. James C. Hagerty.

Soviet Chief ing On Formosa State Department Denies Offers of Concessions Made Washington Soviet Premier Nikita S. Khrushchev has sent a confidential letter to President Eisenhower back- ing up red China's claim to nationalist held Formosa. State department officials confirming receipt of the let- ter, vigorously denied that it expressed red China's will- ingness to abandon use of force to settle international problems in all Far East areas including Formosa. Far From Agreement These authorities said there is "no foundation in fact" for a report to that effect. The Chicago Sun-Times in a Washington dispatch had told of such a report, presenting it only as a version which could not be corroborated. The story reported the letter "is said to contain a new offer from red China to the United States." Khrushchev's letter, deliv- ered to the state department last Wednesday, is understood to sum up anew Khrushchev's views on red China. Eisenhower and Khrushchev wound up far apart in their Camp David conferences about Asia. They agreed to discontinue talks on that sub- ject because of this wide gulf.

He mother was shot to death last Union Set To Appeal Immediately Pittsburgh (AP) A federal judge today issued Taft-Hartley injunction temporarily halting the rec- ord 99-day steel strike. The United Steelworkers union said it would file an immediate appeal with the U. S. Third circuit court of appeals in Philadelphia. Arthur J. Goldberg, USW general counsel, asked Judge Sorg to stay the injunction order pending the Philadel- phia appeal. The injunction issued by Judge Herbert P. Sorg in U. S. district court prohibits the United Steelworkers union from continuing its strike against the nation's basic steel industry. The government sought the injunction on orders from President Eisenhower. The president said the strike was endangering the Nation's eco- nomic health and safety. Judge Sorg denied the un- ion's request for a stay of execution of the injunction. Judge Sorg told Goldberg his motion "would best be presented to the circuit court in Philadelphia. The hearing, which began yesterday, was to have re- sumed at 10 a. m. At noon Judge Sorg was still in his chambers conferring with government attorneys and counsel for the United Steel- workers. The delay presumably was caused by steel company ob- jections to a union request that a retroactive pay clause be included in any injunction the court might decide to is- sue. Industry Objects During the delay, company attorneys filed a legal brief stating their objections. They claimed such a clause would put the court in the position of "settling in favor of the union one of the most impor- tant terms of collective bar- gaining." The retroactive pay clause proposed by the union would result in the court specifying that benefits in any settle- ment reached during the in- junction period would be ret- roactive to the first day the injunction was in force.
