The Secret Army Organization, fighting to keep Algeria French, replied with more ter- rorist killings'and defiant proclamations printed in newspaper plants occupied at gunpoint.

Leaders of both parties, in fact, are busy posting keep-away signs against "zealous citizens who pro- fess to feel that some of the na- tion's highest trapped in a spiracy. The signs apply also to those among other things, want to abolish the income tax and to im- peach Chief Justice Earl Warren.

Incomplete returns from metro- politan France and Corsica were: yes no A total of ballots were in- valid. De Gaulle's supporters heralded the verdict as a ringing vote of confidence in all aspects of his four-year-old regime. Socialists and 'Communists, however, em- phasized they were backing only his Algerian policy. De Gaulle put before the voters a two-point proposal. One called for confirmation of the cease-fire signed with, the Algerian rebel command at Evian on March 19.

The trials were closed to the American press. Prosecutor Jose Santiago had called for the severest penalties. The maximum penalty is death, but Castro had been reported wary of imposing it. Some exiles here believe the sentences and ransom provision resulted from the family commit- tee's offer to negotiate for the captives' release. A cable offer- ing to negotiate was sent Satur- day. The price for prisoners has more than tripled since Castro made his startling offer last May to swap the prisoners for 500 trac- tors. A committee of U.S. citizens or- ganized at that time to try to ar- range the trade. It was estimated that it would take up to mil- lion, to buy enough tractors or bulldozers to free the prisoners. The prisoners now may be re- leased one by one oh payment of ransoms or indemnities ranging 'from for a man in the usanks- to a-.-leador of the invasion.

Involved in the first joint ses- sion of its scope 'looking toward a possible united Protestantism in America are four denominations with nearly 19 million members. They are: The Methodist Church, the na- tion's .largest Protestant body, with members. The Protestant Episcopal Church with members. The United Presbyterian Church with members. The United 'Church of Christ; a recent merger of Congregational Christian and Evangelical and Reformed Church, with members. No decisive actions are expect- ed at the initial two-day confer- ence, which plans only to organization and procedures for continuing negotiations. The opening get-together ap- peared likely to provide some clues as to just how much steam there is behind the historic pro- posal. Other denominations may be invited to join in future negotiat- ing sessions.

Last year, as he urged, govern- ing bodies of the United Presby- terian Church and the .Episcopal Church joined in issuing 'invita- tions for the talks to' the other two denominations. Merger of the four communions would bring together Christians retaining age-old creeds and tra- ditional liturgies, and those with more informal non-ritualistic cus- toms. However, the roots of all four groups intertwine back in the early days .of the. Protestant ref- ormation 450 years ago. Dr. Blake has estimated that even if good progress is made, it would take at least .10 years to form, the merger. With .the ex- ception of the Episcopal Church, the other three denominations are products of 'previous mergers themselves that have developed in this century in the momentum for fuller' Christian unity.
