The House group unanimously voted to send to the House for ac- tion a resolution identical with one approved by two Senate commit- tees, acting jointly. The warning that the United States will not tolerate the devel- opment of a security threat in Cuba was contained in the report of the Senate committees. Grave Consequences Such a threat "could have the gravest possible consequences' and the United States "will not flinch from these declared the Senate Armed Forc- es and Foreign Relations Commit- tees. All 33 members signed the report. It was plain when the Senate met that it was ready to endorse the language framed by its com- mittees. Senators Wind Up Even before the resolution was called up officially, senators un- corked speeches concerning it. In one. Sen. Warren G. Magnuson, D-Wash., declared, "Castro must are dedicated to that proposition." Sen. Joseph S. Clark, D-Pa., said Americans "feel anger and frustration that the Castro government has hoisted the Red flag within sight of our shores." Clark said, "This is no time for war and that the resolution states the correct position of the government. Learn. From Sailors Magnuson suggested that West- ern Allied nations, "if they are sincere, and I am sure they could take a page from the book of Italian seamen who have re- fused to sail two Italian freighters to Cuba with cargoes from Rus- sia. Sen. Thomas H. Kuchel, R-Calif., told the Senate the reso- lution will show that Congress and the people are united behind the President.

(NEWS Staff Photo, by John Troops Converge On Capital To Crush Argentine Revolt BUENOS AIRES, Argentina from the country- side converged on this capital to- day under orders from President Jose Maria Guido to crush an up- rising by army rebels. Guido received Gen. Juan Car- los Ongania, a rebel leader, Wednesday night. Ongania had come 'to explain the' rebel posi- tion. Instead he was handed an ultimatum to end the uprising at once. Defying the ultimatum, Ongania returned to the rebel stronghold of Campo de Mayo in a Buenos Aires suburb, vowing to fight to the last to enforce the rebel demand Kennedy Hails New Trade Bill As "Significant" WASHINGTON (API-President Kennedy has hailed Senate pas- sage of the foreign trade bill which gives him revolutionary to slash or eliminate powers :ariffs. By a 78-8 vote Wednesday, the Senate approved the measure that would open the way to an eco- nomic partnership with the boom- ing European Common Market. The House passed a similar version earlier. that Argentina return to demo- cratic rule. The rebels accused the military command of moving toward mili- tary dictatorship. Guido then ordered a joint oper- ation against the rebels by the army, air force and navy. But the. air force commander, Brig. Cayo Antonio Alsina, said his forces would not take part. No decision was announced by the navy. However, Campo de Mayo said in a communique navy planes dropped, flares on tanks advancing from Magdalena to sup- port the rebels. Calling the president a virtual prisoner of the Army high com- mand, Ongania said Guido acted with "astonishingly tragic celeri- ty" in laying down an order "for forces whose objective always'has been to defend him from, the coups and treasons suffocating him."

He asked that the slashed funds be restored. House leaders, detecting .senti- ment for additional trimming of the economic and military aid measure, -may forego a salvage operation at this time strategic purposes. Kennedy originally asked billion. The cut criticized Wednesday night by the President in a state- ment is the handiwork of the House Appropriations Committee. The stiff opposition a move-to re-, store the money would face was summed up by Rep. Otto E. Pass- man's declaration that "Not one cent will be put back if I have anything to do with it." The Louisiana Democrat, a per- sistent advocate of keeping foreign aid spending down, was chairman of the appropriations subcommit- tee that drafted the bill. He will be floor manager for the measure in House debate, beginning today. In his statement the President declared: "It makes no- sense at all to make speeches against the spread of communism, to deplore instability in Latin America and Asia, to call for an increase in American prestige and an initia- tive in Eastern then vote-to cut back the Alliance for Progress, to hamper the Peace; Corps, to repudiate our long-term! commitments of last year and to undermine the efforts of those who are seeking to stave off chaos communism in the most vital areas of the world.

Secretary of State Dean Rusk letters to House leaders claiming the cut in "paralyze United States leader- ship" in critical areas at a time when the Cuban and Berlin crises pose serious problems. House leaders were undecided whether to try to restore the cuts. If they tried now and-failed, the chances of restoring some of the money in the bill clears the be jeopardized. While leaders pondered their course of action, some' Republi- cans talked of proposing reduc-. tions of as much as million in economic aid. Any attempts to further pare the bill almost certainly would draw heavy since most House members' are running for re-election this year and the for- eign aid bill affords them an op- portunity to make an economy showing, Law Needs No Lawyer The long arm of John Law caugh John Law in Ada Wednes- day. It was one of a half-dozen cases filed in Municipal Court during a rather "dull" day for city police. John W. Law Jr., 20, was stopped by the police who figured his car's exhaust system was emitting too much noise. He was charged in Municipal Court with operating a car with an improper exhaust. Law didn't hire a lawyer. He merely forfeited bond. In other cases, drunkenness charge's were filed against Robert Lee Wilson, 51; William H. Davis, 36; and Jack Cornish, 43. Wilson pleaded not guilty and the other two were fined -each. Speeding charges were filed against Homer 'W. Cross, 29, and Sandra C. Bayless, 19. Auto Flips Near Tupelo; Pair Injured Two sisters, one from Norman arid one from California, were in- jured-yesterday- when the. car in which they were traveling went out .of control on SH 3 just west of Tupelo.

G. rail- road crossing west of Tupelo. Kenneth Kean, 'Stonewall, driver of a propane truck traveling just ahead of Mrs. Clopton's vehicle, said the car had been behind him for some distance. He- said neither he nor the other-car-was traveling at an excessive speed. He estimated 'his own .speed 'at about 45 miles per hour. As he went into the wide curve just' before reaching the railroad tracks, Kean said, he set his blinkers and signalled that he was going to stop. He had completed the required stop and had shifted into low gear, preparatory to starting again, when, he said, "I heard those tires squealing behind me." Tracks and skidmarks at the scene showed. where the 'Clopton car had run off the right 'side of the. road at the beginning of the curve, traveled along the shoul- der for 50-75 yards, then cut sharply back across the road. Crossing to the left, side of the road just before reaching., the railroad tracks, the car went i down a steep embankment, .over- turned once, and .came to rest with its front wheels on the ground and 'its rear -wheels propped up on a large post. House Squeezes Out Compromise Farm Bill WASHINGTON a clifffianger vote of 202- 197, the House passed today a compromise farm bill that included some of the provisions the Kennedy ad- ministration wanted. The compromise bill, worked 'out by a conference, still must be approved by the Senate. That approval is virtually cer- Dollar Loses Appeal For Speculation WASHINGTON Kennedy said today that specula- tion against the .dollar has lost its allure and no. extreme or restric- tive measures are needed to cope with the problems remaining. However, Kennedy did not plug tor the status quo in international currency' arrangements. He said the United States will always be receptive to suggestions for ex- panding the .arrangements. In an address to a joint session of leaders of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank, Kennedy pushed anew for greater progress toward a long- standing American goal, that of getting other prosperous' free na- tions to bear a greater share of the 'burden in financing underde- veloped countries. The President said that the Unit ed States has willingly borne more burdens than any other country as possessor of the world's most important currency and chief banker for international trade. "But we cannot and should not bear them .all he said. "I know that other countries .do not expect us to bear indefinitely the responsibilities of maintaining an international currency and, in ad- dition, a disproportionate share of the costs of defending the free world and fostering social and eco- nomic progress in the less-devel- oped parts of the world." is tain. Before passing the compromise measure, the House defeated by a vote of 165 to 104 a Repubtican at- tempt to send it back to confer- ence. That vote closely followed party lines. The defeated Republican motion would have instructed the Senate- House conferees to return a bill that amounted to a straight ex- tension of present one-year emer- gency wheat and feed grain pro- grams. Republicans argued bitterly against the compromise, while Democrats contended it was the last chance for a farm program in the coming year. The bill contains a provision 1964 the secretary of Agri- culture can set price supports for some crops at a level designed to prevent further increase of gov- ernmentowned surplus stocks. Republicans argued that this would mean low price supports, a 50 per cent of .parity or 80 cents a bushel for corn, which they said was a ruinous level for farmers. On the vote, 200 Democrats anc 2 Republicans voted for the bill while 37 Democrats' and 160 Re- publicans voted against. One controversial section in the bill provides for direct payment to farmers in grain from govern- ment surplus stores as part ol their price supports.

(NEWS Staff Defendant Is Unaware Of "Trial" OXFORD, Miss. (AP) State officials pulled all the stops today in their elev- enth-hour legal battle to keep Negro James Mere- dith from enrolling at the University of Mississippi. The 29-year-old Air Force veteran was expected to ar- rive on the campus of the all-white school today to try to become the first of his race to register in the 114-year history of the school. WASHINGTON (AP) The Justice Department said today it had obtained a federal court order in Mississippi against tbe planned arrest of James H. Meredith, 29-year-old Negro whose attempts to enroll at the University of Mississippi have become a focal point of civil rights action. At Jackson, a state justice of the peace convicted Meredith in a 10-minute trial on a charge of false voter registration and or- dered his arrest.' Second Warrant The arrest warrant was the sec- ond issued against growing out of a discrepancy in Meredith's listing of "his residence. In seeking to register as a voter he listed his home as Hinds Coun- ty, but in his testimony during his desegregation suit he said he lived in Attala County. Neither where- abouts were unknown early today any of his attorneys was at the trial. Maximum Penalty Justice of the Peace Homer Edgeworth meted out the maxi- mum year in jail and a fine. In an. earlier arrest warrant is- sued against Meredith, he was ac- cused of perjury, a felony with a maximum possible sentence of 10 years imprisonment. The two cases tie in with a bill passed by the legislature Wednes- day and signed into law by Gov. Ross Barnett in the predawn hours today making it illegal for the university to admit anyone with a criminal record. Secret Meeting The Mississippi College Board and state officials met into the early hours today. After the ses- sion ended, Gov. Ross Barnett told newsmen he would stand firm on his decision not to let Meredith enter the university. The board had no announce- ment on its action. Chairman Tom Tubb said another meeting was scheduled today. Register On Spot Meredith was expected to show up in company of a number of federal marshals. If the university refuses to en- roll him, the registrar likely would face federal charges. Federal courts up to and in- cluding the Supreme Court have ordered Meredith admitted to the university as a transfer student, coming from Jackson State Col- .ege for Negroes. Barnett told state officials they should be prepared to go to jail or to resign so others could take over their jobs. Injoins Him Chancery Judge L. P. Porter, a state judge, issued a temporary injunction Wednesday barring ad- mittance of Meredith.
