Trade to Cuba
To Halt Ships
Castro Bloc Meets
WASHINGTON (P) - Secretary
of State Dean Rusk reportedly told
Latin American foreign ministers
yesterday the United States is
planning to take measures design-
ed to discourage the use of allied-
owned ships in Communist-bloc
deliveries to Cuba.
The foreign ministers also
adopted a communique expressing
strong denunciation of the Fidel
Castro - Communist alliance in
It was learned that three steps
are under serious consideration
with the indication that they will
be imposed shortly:
Bar U.S. Ships.
1) The United States' own ships
would be specifically prohibited
from engaging in the Cuban trade
in any manner. There have been
charges that American - owned
ships operating under foreign flags
have engaged in the Cuban trade,
but a State Department official.
recently denied knowledge of such
2) United States ports would be
closed to, ships of any country
carrying arms to Cuba. This re-
striction would define the United
States attitude on Cuban arms
shipments, but apparently would
have little if any practical effect,
Since officials say that, so far as
they know, only Soviet ships have
been used for arms deliveries to
3) United States ports would be
closed to vessels which sailed frorm
any Communist-bloc port to Cuba
or from Cuba, or from Cuba to a
This measure would be directed
toward preventing ships from de-
livering any kind of cargo to Cuba,
then picking up cargo at an Amer-
ican port for delivery elsewhere.
Conversely, vessels engaged in
Cuban trade would be barred from
taking on cargo in some other
country and delivering it to the

NEW DELHI - A Communist Chinese note yesterday warned that
"defensive measures" may be taken in the middle as well as eastern

Chinese troops in the middle sector, whch lies just west of Nepal.

The decision, backed by an
overwhelming majorityrofthe 1,-
300 delegates at the party's an-
nual conference, foreshadowed a
major clash in British politics.
The delegates cheered and1
stamped their feet when their
leader, Hugh Gaitskell, challenged
Prime Minister Harold Macmillan'
to change his policies or submit
the Common Market issue to the
Gaitskell said the socialistic La-
bor Party - not Macmillan's Con-
servatives - speaks now for the
people of Britain and the Com-
He said Macmillan - in his
anxiety to enter the Common
Market - was pursuing a course
that could destroy the Common-
wealth, toss away 1000 years of
British independence and deepen
the cold war.
In such a united Europe, he ex-
plained, Britain would have the
same status that California and
Texas have in the United States.
"We are not a part of Europe-
at least not Yet," Gaitskell said.
Britain could link up with its'
continental neighbors only if the
present terms were radically modi-
fied, he declared.
But he held out little hope that
such changes wouldresult from
the Brussels negotiations being
conducted by Deputy Foreign Min-
ister Edward Heath and represen-
tatives of the six Common Market
countries - West Germany,
France, Italy, Belgium, Nether-
lands and Luxembourg.
Out in Open
Macmillan - after disguising
for months his own deep commit-
ment to the Common Market -
now is also out in the open.
He will get his chance to answer
Gaitskell at the Conservative Par-
ty conference in Llandudno,
Wales, next week. But he will have
to tread carefully there for Gait-
skell's anti-market line has stirred
up many conservatives.

Foreign Affairs Committee ap-
