New Era In Business Dealings In Moscow llAV ANA AP —A shiny Soviet exposition set the sta®3 today fo- talks between Fidel Castro’s trade -hungry government and the top Soviet pakisman, Deputy Premier Ar.astas I. Mikeyan. A to'i Castro aid quickly let it be k-own that Cuba hopes for a new era in business dealings with Mo cow Only a few hours after Mike- yan’s arrival Thursday, the left- wing president of Cuba’s national bank, Emeste Guevara, told a TV audience that “trade is necessary and for us very necessary.” The opportunity piobab’y will come after the 64-y3ar-o’d Mike yan formally opens the Soviet sci entific, technical and cultural ex- hibit-f(’ armounced purpose of his visit. U.S. officials in Washington viewed Mikeyan’s visit as a dra matic prepaganda move by Mos cow to capitalize on the low ebb in American-Cuban relations. They say he may have brought a raft of trade offers in anticipa tion of Cuban overtures. An added possibility is that Mikeyar will seek to re-establish Cuban-Soviet diplomatic relations, which vvere broken off during Ful- gencie Batista’s regime. In line with such a move, he is expected to invite Castro to pay a state visit to Moscow. Western Democrats Open Election Year ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. AP — Western Democrats open an elec- tion-year conference today, a showcase for Democratic presi dential aspirants. It drew 750 delegates from 13 states along with invited Texans and Okla- ho.mans. Delegates estensibly will draft a Western plank fOT the Demo cratic national platform. The b i g attraction, however, was the appearance of leading romination. The ’3 states, including Hawaii and Alaska, will command 271 of the 1.531 votes at the national convention in Los Angeles next July. That’s a third of the 761 needed to nominate the presiden tial candidate. Former President Harry S. Tru man won’t attend. He sent word frcm his home in Independence, Mo., indicating that his wife’s 'lealth forced him to cancel out as the main speaker. Sen. Hubert H. Humphrey D- Minn, a candidate for the nom- inatiion, and National Chairman Paul Butler will address the con ference Saturday night in his place. .S«n. Lyndon B. Johnson D-Tex, also a possible nominee, speaks tonight. Sen. John F. Kennedy D-Mass, a Jeclared candidate for the nom ination, will appear at a rally Sun- da; organized by New Mexico ,Vi:nds while conference delegates tour the Los Alamoes scientific s'; oratory, 90 miles away. Hodges Waits For Primary Returns RALEIGH—Hodges said that whether he will call special elec tion would depend on develop ments in the primary. The term of Rep. Hall, who died last Friday of cancer, ex pires Jan. 3, 1961. Heinz Rollman, Wayneeville industrialist, has announced as Taylor of Black Mountain has said he will seek the Democrat ic nomination. Raymond Maxwell, secretary of the State Board of Elections, said candidates for the short term—the remainder of Hall’s term—will be voted on in the regular primary on a special ballot. Candidates for the reg ular two-year term will be on the regular primary ballot. If nominees are chosen in the May 28 voting, the governor could conceivably call a special election in the same date that any runoff race might be held in June for any other offices. However, if a runoff is neces sary for the short term, it will dim the possibility of a special election because Congress like ly will be adjourned before the regular election.

Algerian Policy Settled By Strengthened Cabinet PARIS AP — President Charles le Gaulle strengthened his Cabi net today by promoting steadfast supporters of his Algerian policy ind firing Jacques Soustelle, lead- 'ng spokesman of the French co lonialists in Algeria. Soustelle, once touted as the strong man of De Gaulle’s sup porters, was ousted from the post jf minister of the Sahara, atomic energy and overseas possessions be cause of his identification with the Algiers insurgents who unsuccess fully defied De Gaulle last week. Another casualty was Communi cations Minister Bernard Cornut- jentille, who had wanted to com promise with the rebellious French settlers. A brief announcement from the President’s press office said that De Gaulle had approved the de parture from the Cabinet of Sou stelle and Cornut-Gentille. Defense Minister Pierre Guil- 'aumat was demoted to minister- delgegate charged with atomic re search, part of Soustelle’s former duties. He had been severely crit icized because the army let the settlers’ revolt in Algiers drag on for eight days instead of nipping 't at the start.
