But just 65 miles from Port- land, Houghton was telling re- porters in Pooler "For the rest of our days, Etliel and I will live by the sea." The 05-year-old former mas- ter at arms in the Royal Navy had no fears of the Russians would look after him, he said. The two were parollcd Tu day after serving nine years of their 15-year sentences for their part in passing Royal Navy se- crels to the Soviets. Before leaving the Maidstone top security prison Houghton is- sued a statement proclaiming his undying love for 55-year-old Miss Gee. He said he would marry her within two weeks. In Portland today, Ethel said: "I don't want to see him." Miss Gee had testified at her trial that she had spied for the Russians because of her love for Houghton who claimed, he had been blackmailed-into the job. Rogers Rules Out Military Aid WASHINGTON (AP) Slate Secretary William P. Rogers, appearing at a surprise news conference here, ruled out any United States military support for the government of Premier Lon Nol in Cambodia apart from limited arms aid. "We don't intend to become involved militarily in support of the Lon Nol Rog- ers said. At the same time he said the United States encourages co-op- eration by South Vietnam with Lon Nol. Rogers said he is confident President Nixon has in mind a plan for withdrawal of all U.S. troops from South Vietnam "but I don't think he has any inten- tion of making that plan pub- ic." He also said U.S. troops will be withdrawn from combat in South Vietnam by the middle of next year, but would not even speculate on when they might all be withdrawn from the coun- try. Castro Confirms Loss Of Boats HAVANA (Reuters) Pre- mier Fidel Castro today con- firmed the loss of two Cuban fishing vessels during the last week and the capture of the 11 men on board-by an anti-Castro Cuban exile organization.

Castro said he holds the United States responsible for. the lives of the fishermen. He demanded their immediate re- lease. President Osvaldo Dorlicos summoned British Ambassador Richard Sykes, alleging that counter-revolutionary 'organiza- tions and the U.S Central Intel- ligence Agency are using small British keys and islands off the Cuban coast to launch anti-Cas- tro attacks. The president warned Britain to take steps to prevent such ac- tivities. Black Candidate Upsets Mayor NEWARK, N.J.
