The two leaders conferred for

White :Kouse in their first meet-

ing since Kennedy became presi-
dent. Their conference was 'most
satisfactory," members of Ade-
nauer's delegation reported.
After the , afternoon session

reported that Rusk stressed the
Kennedy administration regards
with utmost seriousness this coun-
try's obligations to protect the
independence of West Berlin from
Communist pressures.
The future of the Atlantic Al-
liance was the main topic dis-
cussed by Kennedy and Adenauer.

tinuation 'of discussions held be-
tween the chancellor and Dean
Acheson in Germany" on Sun-

Acheson, secretary of state in
the Truman regime, is now Ken-
nedy's adviser on the North At-
lantic Treaty Organization. He
familiarized the chancellor with
the United States chief execu-

Kennedy Says Exiles
Aware :of His Stand
WASHINGTON (M -- President
John F. Kennedy said yesterday
that there will not be, under any
conditions, intervention in Cuba
by United States armed forces.
Kennedy told his news confer-
ence that this government will do
"everything it possibly can, and I
think it can meet its responsibili-
ties, to make sure that there are
no Americans involved in any ac-
tion inside Cuba."
The President went on to say
that his administration does not
intend to take any action with
respect to property or other eco-
nomic interests formerly held by
Americans in Cuba "other than
formal and normal negotiations
with a free and independent
Share Attitude
Kennedy added that it is his
understanding that the adminis-
tration's attitude is understood
and shared by anti-Castro exiles
from Cuba now in this country.
Answering another reporter,
Kennedy said, the United States
still is opposed-under present
conditions-to admittance of Red
China to the United Nations.
He characterized as "not ac-
curate" a report he said he had
seen indicating that the United
States had changed its position
regarding debate in the United
Nations about admitting Commu-
nist China to membership.
Refers to Dispatch
The President apparently was
referring to a London dispatch
saying that the Kennedy admin-
istration was reported to have de-
cided not to oppose UN debate
next fall on Red China's bid for a
seat in the United Nations.
As for reports that the Russians
have stepped up their airlift of
weapons to the rebel forces in
Laos, Kennedy commented, "I
don't think that there is any evi-
dence that there has been a very
marked increase in tbeir supplies"
Kennedy also said he has no
information indicating that the
Soviet Union may be about to re-
lease Francis Gary Powers, the
U-2 spy plane pilot held in Prison
by the Russians.-
