Kennedy Sudden Electricity Failure Leads To Weird Things By Nikita Yardley The lights, which usually are singularly faithful in perform ing their duty, went out last night at 6:30. - The entire central portion of the campus was blackened, and Carrboro also felt the impact of the sudden deprivation. According to the highest source that The Daily Tar Heel could reach in the dark, the main power line busted. As this story was going to press it was still busted. Candles, normally reserved for rituals and the Valkyries and Golden Fleece, appeared promptly across the campus at exactly 6:38, when the hour of catastrophe arrived. Giggling Goils Girlish giggles were heard emanating from the far corners of Graham Memorial, and no roving spectators could discover exactly what the cause was. A number of people had various ideas. The Student Party, slated to meet in Graham Memorial, and the University Party, which had plans for some action in Gcr rard Hall, made other plans and conducted their smoke-filled- room type activities in the dark.

Weary Americans Arrive In Miami After Sea Jaunt MIAMI (UPI) A group of travel-stained Americans, pawns in the fantastic saga of the Santa Maria, arrived by plane from Brazil Tuesday, weary but happy on their safe return to U.S. soil. Of the 42 Americans aboard the liner seized by Portuguese rebels at sea two weeks ago, some 30 flew into Miami and began making arrangements to get home. Among them were Mr. and Mrs. Floyd Preston and their four sons ranging in age from 2 to 11. They were the biggest American family aboard the liner captured by an armed rebel band led by Capt. Hen rique Galvao while heading for Port Everglades. Fla. Preston and his wife, June, both 37, said they were "ex tremely glad" to get back to the United States. "It's hard to believe that it really happened," said Preston "It surely was an interesting trip, but we're glad it's over.' Preston, who teaches petro leum engineering at the Uni versity of Kansas at Lawrence, Kan., said the rebel band treat ed his family well. Some of the rebels "played with the kids," he said.

The charges, made at the opening of Britain's most sensational spy trial in a dec ade, stirred fears that Russia now knows U.S. and NATO plans for defense against the giant Soviet submarine fleet. Three men and two women were charged in London's Bow Street Court Tuesday morning with passing top secret information to "a foreign power." Attorney General Sir Reginald Manningham-Bul- ler made it clear in his opening prosecution speech the power was Russia. The names of American turn coats William Martin and Ver non Mitchell almost immediate ly were brought into evidence as the spy thriller unfolded with a parade of British secret agents identified only by letters such as "Mr. I." "Fears that vital secrets of Western sea defenses may have been betrayed to Russia cen tered on the fact that two of of college life is to get an edu cation. Moreover, this includes, but goes beyond, the attainment of the college degree. It is im portant that the student increase his intellectual capacity and his desire for knowledge. It is es sential that the student learns to live harmoniously and pro ductively with. His fellow man. The sum total of this should be the objective of the American College student. "This purpose of 'Parlance is largely to take a look at these objectives and to determine how closely they are ahered to by the Carolina student. This mag azine will make an effort to evaluate the Carolina student, his goals and ideals and the in stitution around him. This work deserves our closest con sideration. Perhaps, we as stu dents will be able to see in per spective the Carolina student, and I hope that we may gain a better insight for looking at ourselves." TO ENLARGE CENTER NEW YORK (UPI) Radio Corp. of America has announc ed plans to add 10,000 square feet of space to its Natick, Mass. industrial center as a result of an upsurge of orders for indus trial computers and companion electronic equipment. 4 Ai' James Bryany of North Carolina College, Jonathan Yardley of UNC and special guest Dr. James Cloland, dean of the Duke ChapeL (UNC Photo Lab Photo) Espionage the defendants Ethel Gee, 46, and Henry Houghton, 55 worked at the British navy's top-secret anti-submarine base at Portland. Naval experts said few of the West's strategic anti-submarine defense plans are unknown to Britain. The British are charged under NATO with one of the vital roles, in event of war, in dealing with Russia's fleet of some 450 submarines. The other defendants are Peter Kroger, 50. and his 47-year-old wife Helen, who sell books at suburban Ruislip where the U.S. Third Air Force is headquartered and the alleged mastermind Gordan Lonsdale. Lonsdale carried a Canadian passport but is really a Russian, the attorney general told the court. He said Houghton told police he was recruited for espionage work by a man who identified himself as "Commander Alex ander Johnson, U.S. Navy." "Commander Johnson," the attorney-general testified, ac tually was Lonsdale, who on other occasions posed as a con servative London businessman. The names of Martin, and Mitchell, former U.S. National Security Agency employes en tered the evidence when Man-ningham-Buller told the court of an alleged conversation be tween Lonsdale and Houghton shortly after the Americans dis appeared. "I wonder if this is correct," he quoted Lonsdale as saying. "Yes," he quoted Houghton as replying, "I heard they had gone over." Manningham-Buller told the court that Lonsdale was arrest ed as he took from Miss Gee a package containing secret docu ments on testing of British ships, and film of classified papers giving a detailed descrip tion of ships and equipment. The film, he said, "would be of value to an enemy." The attorney-general said po lice had also found notes in a micro-dot code and an extreme ly powerful portable radio transmitter receiver set up in the Krogers' house at Ruislip. Voice Of Duke, N. C.

"Nothing is easier in the course of their business than to send informa tion in the form of microdots attached to the pages of a book posted abroad, having previous ly notified the receiver which page they arc attached to. "There is no doubt they were getting instructions from Mos cow and supplying information by wireless or micro-dot," ha said. N. Y.
