The revolutionary chief said he also had invited U.S. con- gressmen who "in recent days have severely criticized the executions of war criminals by the revolutionary A statement from Castro's! press headquarters said per- sonal invitations had gone out to the foreign journalists. A spokesman said five planes would be sent to Miami to pick up those wishing to at- tend and another plane might go on to Washington. Wants Truth Known "We have extended the in- vitation." Castro's statement said, "so that the truth of what is happening in Cuba, may be told to all citizens of every country in America. We believe that if the truth is known any misunderstanding that has occurred in recent days regarding the situation in our country will disap- pear." Castro has called for half a million Havana residents to turn out Wednesday to back his regime's rejection of for- eign criticism of the speedy execution of those convicted of killing opponents of former Dictator Fulgencio Batista The auxiliary Roman Cath- olic bishop of Havana, Msgr Alfredo Muller, last night en- dorsed the executions, report- ed to have reached 216 throughout Cuba. Appearing on a television in tervlew with revolutionary chief Fidel Castro, Bishop Muller said that he personal- ly opposes capital punishment but that the church permits it in some instances. "in this case it is justi- he declared. Open to Public Although Castro avoided saying on the program when the Havana trials would get underway, he said they would be conducted under a military code and open to the public. "I want everyone to see he declared- Some members of rev- olutionary groups gathered in Havana's Central park last night. Women farm workers carried banners reading: "Let the executions continue." Per- aza Venegas, a 24-year-old Castro soldier, piled back his shirt to display scars he said Truman Cautions Against Diplomacy By Tourists Here U. S. Foreign Policy Shaped by President Not Private Interests BY HARRY S. TRUMAN I hope the recent crop of diplomatic tourists does not get us into more complications at when the free world is try- ing to find how to deal with the communist world. Those of our own people whether they travel to Moscow or whether they have been hosts to Mikoyan here in this understand that they have no responsibility for the shaping of American foreign policy. I am particularly disturbed by the eager- ness displayed by some of our leading indus- trialists and financiers to shower the visiting Soviet deputy prime minister with solicitous Truman attention and social glamour resulting in pressure on the White House. There is considerable difference between negotiations by governments and the probing by individuals for some kind of a deal. I am all In favor of negotiations no matter how trying to our patienca with any one currently in power in Rus- sia, be he Khrushchev, his deputy, or anyone else. We have had many long and exhausting talks with Stalin, Molotov, Gromyko, Bulganin, Zhukov, Khrush- chev and others, but up to now these talks have been futile as far as reaching even a working basis, much less a peaceful accord, with the changing figures in the Krem- lin. The Kremlin has used all these talks to feed its propa- had come from Batista police. Castro said in torture by the TV in- terview that only military men will face the military tri- bunals, and indication possi bly that civilians will go be fore the special revolutionary courts he has said will be set up. He also reduced slightly his earlier estimate that 450 in all will be executed, saying not more than 400 will be pu to death. Anti-Diabetic Drugs Will be Tested by VA Washington Effec tiveness of two of the newe anti-diabetic drugs given b> mouth instead of injection will be tested by the veter- ans administration. VA announced today that eight of its hospitals will con- duct the study on some 400 patients for a minimum of eight months. The aim is to learn to what extent the drugs can replace daily insulin injections on a long-term basis. The compounds to be test- ed are tolbutamide and chlor propamide.

C after an overnight stop in Panama. He is due in Charleston, to begin a U. S. visit, at 3 p.m. Frondizi told a news con- ference here some followers of former Dictator Juan D. Peron hope to develop a rev- olutionary plan as a result of Argentina's current strikes, but "we won't allow that." Besides the' Peronistas, the communists are a big factor m the current wave of strikes, Frondizi said.
