Press-Telegram (Newspaper) - October 26, 1959, Long Beach, California UNION TRY REACH SEPARATE TRUCE BANDIT ON CRUTCHES Cuba Frenzy Against U.S., Labor Confederation Backs Premier in Call for Shutdown HAVANA C u b a n s swarmed into Havana from the provinces today in answer to Fidel Castro's call for a protest by a million voices against "foreign aggression" from the United States. A spokesman declared Cuba should arm 500.0XX) workers for defense. The bearded Prime Minister addressed a mammoth meeting this afternoon on Cuban demands that the Uni- ted States prevent anti-Castro Cubans in Florida from send- ing planes over Cuba to drop arms and anti-government leaflets. The Cuban Confederation of Labor set the stage. It ordered a general work shut- down at noon in Havana and three neighboring provinces to assure a huge crowd in the show of loyalty at the presi- dential, palace, which opened at 2 p.m. 4 ELECTRIC SERVICE and telegraph and telephone com- munications abroad were ex- em'pted, confederation lead- ers said. David Salvador, chief of Cuba's organized labor under Castro, appealed through newspapers for establishment of a workers militia "to pro- tect us from aggression from the imperialist United Slates monopolies and the traitors and war criminals they are protecting." He said a half million men should be formed into battalions with full military equipment. Salvador also urged expan- sion of the budget of the ministry of the armed forces, headed by Castro's brother! Raul, to provide for the chase of more warplanes, antiaircraft artillery and oth- er for offense, hut for the defense of our sovereignty." POLICE SOURCES said another light plane droppec anti-Castro leaflets on Ha vana's outskirts Sunday night, but was driven off by two fighters. Cuban warplanes patrolled the Havana area today, pre sumably fearing that anti- Castro forces might do some leaflet dropping on the mass meeting. A U. S. Embassy spokesman said the Embassy had not re- quested any special police protection, that it was "tak- ing at face value the min- istry of state's promise Satur day that Americans here The Finest Evening Newspaper LONG BEACH 12, CALIF., MONDAY, OCTOBER 26, 1958 30 PAGES PRICE 10 CENTS TELEPHONE HE 5-1161 Vol. 228 HOME EDITION (Six Editions Daily) CLASSIFIED HE 2-S8M He's Gone to the WHILE HIS HANDLER stands by with gun drawn waiting for further reinforcements, Champ, St. Paul, Minn., 'police department's trained dog, clamps a firm hold on the shoulder of Stanley McFarlin, 20.

NEW ANTIBIOTIC NAMED SYNCILLIN Penicillin Tablet Available Soon, May Make Injections Obsolete By BEN ZINSER A new penicillin tablet, so powerful it may make penicillin shots obsolete, will be available to physi- cians in the next few weeks. The new product, first synthetic penicillin ever to be prepared for medical use, will be trade named Synecillin. Development of Syncil- lin is the culmination of a 10-year research program. The new antibiotic is the result of 3 complex chemi- cal procedure for creating variations of penicillin never before possible. Dr. A m e 1 R. Menotti, scientific director of Bris- tol Laboratories, Syracuse, N.Y., said the new tablet promises to make penicillin injections a thing of the past. Preliminary tests, he said, indicate that Syncillin can provide effective anti- biotic action in the blood- stream at levels twice as high as those obtained with the same dose of existing forms of penicillin. Dr. Menotti said early evidence indicates the new product will not produce the incidence of dangerous allergic reactions attribut- able to penicillin shots. He said there also are in- dications that germs which have developed resistance to older penicillins may be vulnerable, to the new form. Results of early trials of the drug in human patients will be disclosed next week at the Seventh Annual Symposium on Antibiotics in Washington, D. C. ;
