Entry in Space Derby Gigantic Balloon Startles ie on Eastern Seaboard Castro's Cabinet Votes Revival of Military Courts Cuba Fears New Blood-Bath; 200 Already Held in Jails BY ROBERT BERRELLEZ Havana Fidel Castro's cabinet early today ratified the revival of military-tribunals which sent 555 of his ene mies to execution before firing squads. Fears of a new blood-bath grew with an estimated 200 per sons already in jail awaiting investigation or trial as coun- ter-revolutionaries and unconfirmed reports circulating of more and more arrests daily. Prime Minister Castro abolished the controversial military tribunals in July in favor of civilian courts. Though the latter Washington W) The United States has a spectacu- lar new entry in the space derby a balloon as big as a 10-story building that in- flates 250 miles above the earth. The first space balloon launching yesterday at Wal- lops Island, Va., was a smashing success. Not only did' the balloon perform as planned, it startled hundreds of citizens all over the east- ern seaboard. The balloon, 100 feet in di- ameter, was the biggest ob- ject anyone has ever sent up into the fringes of space. But it weighed only 130 pounds. It was not meant to go 'into orbit, and soon fell back into the sea. It was visible for 10 minutes. Later the national aeronautics and space admin- istration hopes to put some of these giant space travelers into orbit around the earth. Flare With Sparks The balloon, fired at p.m. CST, caught the rays of the sun at the top if its flight. As it unfolded up there, its alumninized surface caught the light at different angles and sent forth myriad flashes of reflected sunlight. Many who saw it thought it was a flare, surrounded 'by sparks. Western Talks Set for Paris Couve de Murville Says Meeting to be Held About Dec. 15 Paris The western JCU..IXO1.

The message, picked up here by an amateur radio re- porter, was addressed to Mexico's president by the Dr Rafael Chavez Carillo, broth- er of Colina's governor. Mina- titlan is an inland city of about population. Added to those who losl their lives in coastal re- gions of Colima and Jalisco states, counted earlier at nearly 100, the loss of life as- sumes the proportions of one of this country's worst natur- al disasters of modern times. Area Still Isolated In Tecoman, 12 miles from the coast, 16 persons were re- ported dead and home- less. The radio message pleaded for food and medicine, but the region is still cut off from land transportation, airfields are flooded and the only pre sent means of communica tion is radio. Some emergen- cy fields-were in limited by planes. Air rescue operations con- tinued around-the-clock in an effort to reach hundreds of families driven from their fiomes by rain-swollen rivers that jumped their banks and poured through dozens of small villages. The rivers knocked out communications and flooded roads in the stricken area, hindering the movement of military convoys carrying food, medicine and clothing. President Adolfo Lopez Ma- teos took personal charge of relief operations. The Pacific port of Manzan- illo, which took the full force of the hurricane, reported 80 known fatalities.

David Norton, 22, of Government Fails to Compel Steel workers To Act Before Monday BY GEOFFREY GOULD Washington The supreme court refuses to order the Steelworkers union to speed up its appeal of a Taft-Hartley, back-to-work injunction that would halt the 107-day steel strike. The government made a strong plea to the court yester- day to tell the union to get going on the appeal by noon today." Without comment, the court denied the justice department request. That leaves the union until Monday to appeal the ruling of a Philadelphia appeals court that upheld the injunction. Union Lawyer Arthur J. Goldberg said he expected to file the formal appeal no-, tice with the high tribunal to- and present a com- plete brief for the union case by Monday, This means the court prob- ably won't be ready to rule until the middle of next week. The strike will go on at least until then unless something conies of new full scale nego- tiations that resume today at Pittsburgh between the un- ion and the big steel compan- ies. May Confer in Capital The federal medication ser- vice said it was glad to hear that negotiations, would re- sume. But it served notice on both sides that if nothing hap- pened by Monday it would call them to Washington for a. joint- bargaining conference. Furthermore, the service said, if the talks break down before then, the! service will move up its dead- line for the Washington con- ference. The involved court action began nine days ago when. President 'Eisenhower asked his government lawyers- to get a Taft-Hartley injunction in Pittsburgh. He said the strike was endangering the health and safety of the na- tion. The injunction was granted. The court order would halt the strike for 80 days, but the union could resume it after that period if no settlement were reached in the mean- time.
