THE SELMA TIMES- Heart Attack Set Cause Of Death Investigation which placed. two alibiing Negroes at the scene of a "murder" near Minter Saturday night proved useless Sunday morning when an autopsy showed the cause of death to be a heart attack. according to the Dallas County Sheriff's Department. Investigating sheriff's deputies M. F.

Suther and J. E. Hewston said Will Cooper, about 55, died of a heart attack after a fight with two other Negroes over the payment of a one dollar towing fee. Cooper, who lived on' the Harrell Watts place near Sardis, was found in a ditch about two miles east of Minter Saturday night, approximately 120 feet from his auto. The auto was also in the ditch.

State Toxicologist Dr. C. J. Reh- he ling said death was due to a heart attack. Investigation by the deputies revealed the following story: Cooper and several other Negroes were en route to a party when Cooper's car went into the ditch.

Cooper was left at his car while the others went on to the party. He later flagged down William "Buddy" Price and Henry Brown and promised to pay them a' dollar if they would pull his car out of the ditch. Price and Brown attempted the job but soon found own car in the same ditch. Cooper refused payment and a scuffle ensued, during which Cooper cut Price the don left arm. Another car, driven by Johnnie Anderson and laden with partybound Negroes, stopped the scene.

Cooper told them had ate been robbed. His son, Will Cooper got out of the car and the rest of the Negroes continued on to the party. The younger Cooper was apparently cuffed by Price and Brown and took refuge in the brush nearby. He said he saw his father slapped once and later drop to the group, but that he saw no blow that would cause death. Brown and Price left Cooper in the ditch, thinking they had killed him.

They pulled their car out and went to the party. Dr. Rehling said Cooper had a heart condition and that the exertion and excitement caused the heart attack. The Negroes were released after Dr. Rehling's examination of the body.

J. Coleman of Mobile, has been named chairman of the Lay Activities Committee the Assembly Men's Council the of Presbyterian Church, U. S. when It met at Montreat Sunday. (Continued From Page 1) offensive weapons are removed.

The National Security: Council's executive committee met for an hour today and will continue to convene daily at the White House for the time being, Salinger said. Washington policymakers held hope-mixed with liberal doses of caution- -that a breakthrough has been scored in the U.S.-Soviet contronation that bordered on potential nuclear conflict. Khrushchev's pledge was hailed in Western capitals as a stunning victory for, the United States. No Deals Informed sources said there were no deals or secret understandings involved with the Soviet leader's offer to dismantle the Cuban bases and return their rockets to the Soviet Union. The only price he asked was a guarantee, which Kennedy gave, that the United States would not invade Cuba.

American diplomats focused op working arrangements for U.N. inspection of withdrawal from Cuba of the "grim weapons" which Khrushchev, under threat of forceful U.S. action, dramatically announced he would ship back to the Soviet Union. U.N. Acting Secretary-General Thant to fly to Cuba Tuesday.

hope is that arranged, he can take with him a workable inspection plan to present to Prime Minister Fidel Castro. Khrushchev sent Deputy Foreigh Vassily Kuznetsov to New York to negotiate. He said on his arrival Sunday night "we are sure peace can be achieved if all parties concerned will exercise good will and a reasonable ap- proach." Marking Time Militarily, the U.S. Navy marked time while Soviet ships once headed for Cuba stayed from two to three days' sailing time away. The State Department announced that while the quarantine against offensive weapons shipments to Cuba continues, it expects no interceptions by the U.

S. blockaders. Khrushchev agreed to de-fuse the missile bases in a letter to Kennedy made public Sunday morning in Moscow. The Soviet leader said interests of peace" guided his decision. Obviously eager to match his adversary's conciliatory Kennedy issued a public statement praising Khrushchey's decision as statesmanlike and as important and constructive contribution to peace." In a quick reply to the premier, Kennedy said Khrushchev had made possible "a stept back from danger." Kennedy stuck to his main point -the nuclear missile buildup in Cuba would have to be removed before there could be "sensible negotiation" on a peaceful settlement of the crisis.

The tension-filled week was climaxed with Khrushchev's latest letter, meeting the basic U. S. demand and suggesting United Nations supervision. The Soviet leader also proposed discussions on arms reductions, including armaments of the rival North Atlantic Treaty Organization and the Communist Warsaw Pact group, and talks on easing other cold war tensions. He omitted any mention of a deal involving Turkey.

About the only controversial note was a charge that a U.S. reconnaissance plane had violated Soviet air space in Asia Sunday. Kennedy acknowledged the straying of the plane, but said it was due to a serious navigational error. "I regret this incident and will see to it that every precaution is taken to prevent recurrance," the President told Khrushchev. Pending solid evidence that the missile bases will be torn down, the aerial surveillance of Cuba continued.

"There has been no order, at this time, for any relaxation of the activities that we have been carrying on," a Pentagon spokesman said. There was no relaxation of the blockade. Authorities here do not regard a Cuban settlement as foreshadowing any letup in Red pressures elsewhere. They still expect, for instance, that Moscow may heat up the Berlin issue to crisis proportions over the next few months.
