Above and at left, authorities arrest five members of the July 26 Movement  in a plot to make arms for Fidel Castro’s rebel army in Cuba. A machine shop set up in a garage at 3144 Oakwood Ave., Lynwood, was apparently using first-class equipment to turn out well-made arms.

Also: Gene Sherman writes about a horse-racing scam using postcards to solicit bets … an analysis of violence during Vice President Nixon’s tour of Venezuela … And massing of the colors for Memorial Day at St. Paul’s Cathedral. (Some of you may recall that in the 1950s, Memorial Day was celebrated May 30).
