Fidel Castro said the execu- tions will continue, regardless of world opinion about the summary justice accorded captive followers of former Dictator Fulgencio Batista who are adjudged major war criminals. "We have given orders to shoot every one of these mur- Castro declared last night. However, not all convicted prisoners are being sent be- fore the firing squads. Some are getting prison terms. A few are being fread. A tri Miss Torre Not to Face Added Quiz New York Columnist bunal at Santiago yesterday provisionally freed civilians and two military men. Criticism Grows Criticism mounted abroad of the hurried military trials and firing squad deaths. But the rebel chieftain, asked by newsmen if the executions would be stopped, replied: "No. To the contrary, we have given orders to shoot every one of these murderers. And if we have to battle world opinion to mete out justice, we are prepared to do it." Castro had scheduled a news conference later in the evening but called it off with word that he was ill. The na- ture of his illness was not dis- closed, but the strenuous life he has led during the past two weeks was probably telling on him. Reports reaching Havana 19 persons were put to death in Camaguey, 320 miles east of Havana, for political murders and tortures during the regime of ousted Dictator Fulgencia Batista. Five more executions were reported from Manzanillo, in province, where eight others were shot Monday. Three former Batista soldiers Marie Torre will not be asked again in court for at least a year to reveal the source of an item she wrote concerning Judy Garland, the actress' lawyer said today. Miss Torre, radio-television columnist for the New York Herald Tribune, yesterday completed a 10-day jail term on a contempt charge for re- fusing to answer the question. She had faced a possible new sentence if she again had refused to answer. Miss Torre attributed her information concerning Miss Garland to a Columbia Broad- casting System executive, but in a pre-trial examination of a libel suit brought by the actress against CBS Miss Torre declined to identi- fy him, invoking freedom ol the press under the first amendment. Pre-Trial Examination Ends Lionel S. Popkin, attorney for Miss Garland, told a news conference today he had con- cluded the pre-trial examina- tion. W. Germany Reassured on Reunify Issue U. S.

Official statements designed Elections in Algeria Assured by De Gaulle to clarify stand did the not, present U.S however, rul out the possibility of future re vision of this policy. The West German govern merit of Chancellor Konrad Adenauer sought more infor mation yesterday after Sec. o State Dulles told a news con ference that free election were the "natural method' but not the only possible way of merging the two parts o Germany into a single nation again. Discuss New Ideas This was interpreted meaning that the stand "We do not intend to take any proceedings against Miss he said. 'If she is called as a wit- ness at the trial and asked the question, it is a matter be- tween hex4 and the court. I might call her. CBS might call her, but there will be no more pre-trial examination of Miss Torre." Popkin said he did not ex- pect Miss Garland's suit against CBS to begin for at least a year. "Based on the court's cal- endar, which is now a year behind, I don't expect we will go to trial for at least a year, Popkin said. a fo free elections might be modi fied if some other practica avenue to unification opene up in prospective negotiation with Russia. It is understood that vari ous new ideas relating to this and other aspects of the over all German problem are now under discussion in the stat department, even though a in the end could be discarded Late yesterday West Ger man Ambassador Wilhelm Grewe and Herbert Dittmann top ranking emissary from the German foreign office conferred with Dulles for a hour. Grewe then issued thi statement, saying that it ha Dulles' full approval: The secretary reaffirme that it is the policy of th United States government t seek reunification of German through free elections. As th secretary said yesterday a his press conference, ther are various theoretically pos sible methods, but reunlfica tion of Germany by free ele tions is the natural metho and the formula agreed to (b the western powers and Ru sia) at the summit conferenc in 1955."

Marshall, 78, was stricken ill and taken to Wo- mack General hospital at nearby Ft. Bragg, N.C., early today. Gen. Marshall has been in poor health and confined to bed at his home here for sev- eral months. The nature of his illness was not disclosed. However, it was not believed to have been a stroke. Col. G. M. Powell, chief surgeon at the hospital, said he was preparing a news re- lease on Gen. Marshall's con- dition. Ft. Bragg sources said Gen. Marshall was resting com- fortably after his arrival there. Gen. Marshall, army chief of staff during World war II and later secretary of state, felt ill upon awakening at his winter home this morning. Col. Powell was summoned and decided to remove the veteran soldier-statesman to the army hospital for obser- vation. Shortly afterward the army's Walter Reed Medical center at Washington and Maj. Gen. Howard M. Snyder, President Eisenhower's per- sonal physician, were noti- fied. _ Angefo Pofri Offers uf Hinff fo Parents One of the world's recog- nized authorities on chil- dren, Anfelo Patri, dis- cusses the problems and Joys of raising children in today's beetle world.

Strikes Predicted The walkout involved the big farm implement firm's 25 factories, transfer points and depots. On the debit side of the la- bor news, O. A.

No Time Limit This was the sole reference to Algeria, the No. 1 prob- lem of France. De Gaulle's wide open reference to a po- litical solution through uni- versal suffrage was a far cry from the political fusion of Algeria and metropolitan France which the French set- tlers in Algeria demand. De Gaulle's vague remarks made no mention of any time limit or any specific election lower's recommendations. In an agreement with Sen. Styles Bridges of New Hamp- shire, chairman of the GOP policy committee, Johnson won senate approval of en- larging some of the important senate committees and re- vamping their party ratios to conform with the new lineup of 64 Democrats and 34 Re- publicans. The Democratic leader whipped through committee assignment of members which his party appeared to reward some of the Democrat- ic freshmen who supported his successful effort this week to compromise the fight over the senate's filibuster rule.

This committee, which han- dles all of the money bills and thus has a great deal to say about where budgeted funds shall be spent, was en- larged to 27 members, more than a fourth of the senate's total of 98.
