Broadcast Says Russians Land Troops On Cuba MIAMI, Fla. (AP) A Cuban news specialist claims that more than Soviet troops have landed in Cuba recently. In a Spanish broadcast from a Miami station Tuesday, Dr. Salvador Leu attributed his information to travelers from Cuba in a position to know. The program, "Voice of the broadcast by WMIE for Miami's refugee population, said the reported troops .were sent in re- sponse to Fidel Castro's fear of rebellion. An associate, Ramiro Boza, dc- Pentag Doubts If It's True WASHINGTON offi- cials said today they had no in- formation whatever that Soviet soldiers have been landing in Cuba, and experts here appeared to doubt the story. Dr. Salvador Leu, a Cuban news specialist, said in a Spanish broadcast over a Miami radio sta- tion Tuesday night that more than Soviet soldiers landed in Cuba recently. He said his infor- mation came from travelers from Cuba in a position to know. The Defense Department said, in response to queries, that it had no information to confirm the re- port. Analysts of Cuban affairs here expressed belief that even if the Fidel Castro regime invited So- viet troops into Cuba, the Soviet Union is too skilled in internation- al matters to take any part in such an undertaking. Landing of such forces in Cuba would be a sure way to assure collective military action by the American republics and if they did not act, the United States would be certain to do so, these experts said. Specialists here said it is quite probable that the Soviet and other Communist-bloc nations have sent military advisers and technicians into Cuba in considerable num- bers, under one guise or "another, but that a troop landing would be stupid from an international standpoint. In any event, Castro has an estimated to men, women and children in his armed forces. They added that the Castro re- gime had been extremely cautious about any military provocation in its dealing with the U.S. naval base on Guantanamo Bay, in Cuba, although Castro and others of his regime have said the pres- ence of U.S. armed forces on Cu- ban territory is obnoxious to the Communist dictatorship. clined to name the source of the broadcast information, but said, "we know it is true when this source tells." The Associated Press Havana correspondent, George Arfeld, said there had been rumors recently of Soviet troop landings, but none of them could be confirmed. The Miami broadcast said that five Soviet ships landed men July 29 at Mariel in western Cuba and four more vessels landed troops at Havana July 30-31. Arfeld said no Russians in uni- form could be seen in the streets of Havana. However, he said a Soviet ship docked Tuesday in Ha- vana with what Havana papers called technicians. Boza, a former editor on the Havana paper El Criscol, said the men the broadcast referred to "were not technicians. They were soldiers." Refugee leaders in Miami point- ed out the coincidence between the time of the reported landings and the fact that the Cuban armed forces minister, Raul Cas- tro, returned from a 10-day visit to the Soviet Union July 21.

Authorities said the death was due to natural causes. Erssie C. Muse, a retired bar- ber, was found by C. L.

New Nation Of Jamaica SaysU.S.BaseWekome KINGSTON, Jamaica the United States ever needs a military base in newly independ- ent Jamaica, it can establish one without commitments, Prime Min- ister Sir Alexander Bustamante said Tuesday night. Bustamante told a news confer- ence the United States has not asked for such a base nor should his statement be construed as an invitation to Washington to set one up on this Caribbean island 90 miles south of Cuba. Bustamante said the United States and Jamaica "are friendly nations and the United States can come in when and if it pleases." The United States maintained bases in Jamaica during World War II under the destroyers-for- bases deal made by the United States and Great Britain. The Many Americans go in for weight-lifting with the wrong and forks. (Copr. Gen. Fea. Corp.) bases were returned after the war. Since then, the bulwarks of U.S. defense of the Caribbean ap- proaches to the Panama Canal have been Puerto Rico and the U.S. naval base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Britain handled Jamacia's for- eign affairs before the island be- came independent Monday. Bustamante declined to say whether he discussed an increase in U.S. aid to Jamaica with Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson, who led the U.S. delegation to the Jamaican independence celebra- tions. He said Jamaica had "no im- mediate plan" to establish diplo- matic relations with Cuba or with Iron Curtain countries. Johnson appeared weary Tues- day from the nearly nonstop, campaign-style schedule he had maintained since Sunday. Johnson made a helicopter visit Tuesday to the mountain camps of the Jamaican, youth corps, where American peace corpsmen also arc at work. The Jamaican government an- nounced that it has asked Wash- ington to send 70 more Peace Corpsmen here because of -the success of the present group of 39. Ada's rodeo got under way Tuesday evening with an excel- lent opening night crowd. Chuck Smith said he' felt it was the best "first night gate in three or four years."

Gail McNinch, Vanoss, 23.4 Rusk Confers With Soviet Ambassadors While Dean Presents Plan At Geneva WASHINGTON (AP) Secretary of State Dean Rusk called in Soviet Ambassador Anatoly F. Dobrynin today to put new pressure behind U.S. efforts to reach agree- ment on a pact to outlaw atomic testing. Rusk and Dobrynin huddled for. an hour and a quarter in Rusk's State Department office while the U.S. foreign affairs chief explained the new U.S. test ban proposals, aides said. Rusk's meeting with the Soviet envoy, his first since returning from Geneva last month, was .described as another effort to get across to the Russians what the United States considers an important proposal. Parallel efforts are being made by the U.S. 'disarmament ambas- sador at Geneva, Arthur Dean, but the Soviet delegates there have informally turned' thumbs down. Only today Dean advanced an offer to cut'by. more than half the number of detection stations proposed to police a test ban treaty. Dean was quoted as telling the SHOW rodeo parade hid of ind loti of rideri but none of them could equal Troy Melton on his fiithful paint, Traveler.

It's Hotter Every Day As 6-Year Record Falls The thermometer in Ada took another dizzy .'ipurt upward yes- terday to liit a high mark of hotter than any other spot in the state, and hotter than it has been here in six years. But it was still balmy and spring-like compared with some of Ada's past summer days. Fort Sill recorded a high of 103 Tuesday, according to the As- sociated Press. Other state cities reported high temperatures rang- ing down to a chilly 94 at Guy- ion. Hundred degree weather in August is no novelty in Ada. The mercury has hit the century mark in July or August nearly every year since weather observ- ier W. E. Pitt began keeping his I records in 1911. Indeed, 1959 is about the only year that didn't make the grade, though '59 had plenty of readings in the high 90s. The last time the weather was really hot here was 1956. In July of that year, there were. 17 days of 100 or higher temperatures. August, 1956, was really OKLAHOMA Generally fair and hot this afternoon through Thursday. Low tonight 66 north- west to 76 southeast. High Thursday 95-105. High temperature in Ada Tuesday was 105; low Tuesday night, 75; reading at 7 a.m. Wednesday, 80. rough. In the 31-day month, 22 days were 100 or better. Included in the total was a stretch of 16 consecutive days when temperatures ranged from 102 to 109. But even that 109 mark shouldn't be considered really exceptional. The same mark was reached in 1343 and 1939, In fact, 1943 did better than that. On Aug. 16, the mercury hit To find summer weather that even old-time Adans would con- sider stinking hot, though, you have to go back to 1936. In August of that year there were 21 consecutive days of 100- plus readings, with an almost or- bital 116 as the high reading. If 1962 expects to beat" that, somebody's going to have to throw more coal on the fire. meeting: "In our new presentation, we are proposing to reduce the num- ber of control posts to something like 80, that means a reduction of more than half." Soviet Deputy Foreign Minister Valerian Zorin made it clear Mon- day, however, that the Soviet Union will not accept the new Western offer. He discussed the proposal with Dean informally Sunday and Monday. He insisted again today that agreement can be reached only on the basis of a neutralist formu- la providing for on-site inspection only by invitation of the affected -country. "Years ago, before the Soviet Un- ion withdrew all previous agree- ments to an international test ban control system, the three nuclear powers were.agreed that a net- work of 180 detection posts should be established all over the world. The reduction of that .number under the modified Western pro- posals, as revealed by Dean, is the result of U.S. scientific re- search for better .detection of dis- tant underground nuclear explo- sions. The Western powers, however, will insist 'that a treaty provide for compulsory international on- site inspection in the territories of all nuclear powers to verify in- strument readings of the detection posts. According to new U.S. scien- tiBc findings, which Rusk was said to have outlined to Dobrynin, detection of underground nuclear explosions is easier than previous- ly supposed.

Stevenson, interviewed as he boarded a jet plane for his return to New York from a European va- cation, said his information carne from official sources in Rome. Stevenson, chief U.S. delegate to the United Nations, said the report may "not necessarily be correct." "It seems logical that Khrush chev will come to New York this fall in an effort to offset some of the bad publicity the Soviet Un- ion is getting because of its resumption of nuclear Stevenson explained. "Khrushchev certainly wants fo talk publicly about Russia's claimed advances, and to shout some more about co- lonialism to offset criticism on the Soviet Union's nuclear testing." ...In Washington, State Depart- ment officials said today they had no solid information one way or the other whether Khrushchev was coming 'to 'the U.N. session.

As the union leaders gathered here to agree on a stand, one of them, H.E.

Gilbert said he expected for- mal statement later today after talks.'with chiefs of the Engineers, Conductors, trainmen and iwitch- men's -unions.

In Chicago the unions set up a joint news conference for 1 p.m., CDT, to follow a morning court session, set by Judge Joseph Sam Perry to issue his formal ruling. If the strike action were ordered and Kennedy took the emergency action available to him, a board named by the President would in- vestigate the issues and report recommendations for a settle- ment.

Soblen to the United States. This put off a showdown in the three-nation wrangle over Soblen which had been due to come to a head at midnight tonight, the orig- inal deadline. El Al, the Israeli airline, has a flight going to New York on Friday .afternoon. There was no indication, how- ever, that the -airline will comply with the British Home Office or- der. It is under instructions from the Israeli government to take So- blen only to Israel. A diplomatic source said it may be weeks before the United States gets its hands on the 61-year-old psychiatrist, who is under a-life sentence. Soblen's lawyers issued a state- ment saying-that Soblen, said to be suffering from leukemia, will die in a prison hospital unless he receives a pardon or amnesty from President Kennedy. If the airline returned him to Israel, Soblen could open a legal maneuver to remain in Israel or seek refuge elsewhere. He has been offered asylum by Commu- nist Czchoslovakia. Britain reportedly has given Washington assurances it will move carefully about letting "So- blen get away but it could involve a long legal fight in British courts. A diplomatic aource said Home Secretary Henry Brooke was ex- pected to issue an order for So- blen's deportation. This would allow British securi- ty men to put him on any plane going to New York. But the order could be challenged in the British courts, the source said. Soblen jumped bail in New York late in June and, using a dead brother's passport, fled to Israel to escape a life sentence for wartime spying for Russia. Israel put him on a plane for the United States with a U.S. marshal but he stabbed himself in flight and was landed in Britain for treatment. The Israeli government has been under heavy fire at home for turning him over to a U.S. marshal without a court order. The prospect of the United States getting such an order is doubtful since Israel and the United States do not have an extradition treaty. The'British government also is hampered because the U.S.-Brit- ish extradition treaty does not cover espionage. The government can return him to El Al, the air- line which brought him into Brit- ain without an entry visa. But any British attempt to turn Soblen over to another airline for depor- tation to the United States will set off another round of court ac- tion by Soblen's attorneys. Tile United States meanwhile stepped up pressure on both Brit- ain and Israel to get Soblen back to-America quickly.
