Top Admiral Says
U.S. Followed Subs


Destroyers Blockading Cuba
Chance 'To 'Exercise Trade'

NEW YORK (A)-The Navy's top admiral said last night United
States destroyers blockading Cuba detected and followed Russian subs
for long periods in the Caribbean and Atlantic waters where the quar-
antine fleet is on station. -
Adm. George W. Anderson Jr., chief of naval operations, thus
confirmed officially reports which surfaced publicly 10 days ago. In a
" speech prepared for the New York

Men Favor
yCo-ed Dorms
In Principle
Vice-President for Student A-
fairs James A. Lewis recently ob-
served that, although nearly every-
one seems to favor the principle"of
co-educational housing, most peo-
ple want it to be instituted "some-
where. else."
The-;results of an ppinion sur-
vey conducted last night among
the presidents of six houses in
South Quadrangle - one of the
units chosen by the Residence
Halls Board of Governors to house
the pilot program in the fall -
somewhat supports this observa-
President William Allington, '64
E, of Frederick House recalled a
questionnaire he circulated in the
house about four weeks ago. Those
responding "were strongly in fa-
vor" of co-ed housing, even in
South Quad.
Personally Favored
Allington said hie personally f a-
vored dividing the building hori-
zontally, with women living in the
four upper floors. He felt this
would result in "more mixing" of
the sexes. ,"The other way (ver-
tically), it's like two separate
The Frederick House poll showed
about two-thirds of the residents
would move to the hill "if it is
necessary to make co-ed housing
work." About half of these said
they "would be happy to," he re-
called. Frederick occupies the two
lowest floors in the east half of
the quadrangle.
Huber House, however, consists
of the top two floors in this wing.
It will be moved to Markley if
South Quad is divided horizontally.
Its president, David Woods, '66,
feels there are "some reservations
in the house" about the proposed
program. "It ;s the general feeling
in the house" that a vertical divi-
sion should be chosen, he noted.
Wf't Wing
Reeves Rouse is located on the
third 'and fourth floors of the
west "wing of the quadrangle. It
will remain there if the horizontal
scheme is chosen.
"Women shou.d have the top
four floors, and men should have
the bottom,"' ays Reeves House
President John Giese, '64Ed. "We'll
have a lot less trouble that way."
Giese elaimed a vertical division
of the quadrangle would reduce
the benefits of co-ed housing. If
the program's geal for the partici-
pating residents is "mingling and
getting to know each other, then
they're gotng about it in a funny
way. The only thing that would be
gained would be that they would
be eating together," he said.
By contrast with Reeves, about
40 per cent of the men of Scott
House would be willing to move to
the hill, Scott House President
David Houseman, '64BAd, said. In
a poll taken about four weeks ago,
almost 90 per cent of the residents
favored the principle of co-ed
housing, and about 60 per cent
would live in a co-educational
South Quad, he said.
Defeating Purpose
Hlouseman, whose house would
be moved if a horizontal division
is made, nevertheless favors this
plan. "They are almost defeating
their purpose" if a horizontal di-
vision, is chosen, he said. He. pre-
dicted Scott could "continue to
function as a unit" if moved to

derson said:
Finest Opportunity
"The presence of Russian sub-
marines in Caribbean and Atlantic
waters provided perhaps the finest

perfect their skills, and to manifest

sonar devices, until they broke

Anderson's speech was devoted
to a glowing account of the opera-
tions of the military services, par-
ticularly the Navy, during the
Cuban crisis, which at one point
appeared to verge on direct mili-

He said the clamping on of the
quarantine was rapid and effec-
"It demonstrated dramatically
the ability of the Air Force and

craft, carrier based aircraft, and

Anderson said.
Race's Dubious
WASHINGTON (AP)-The razor-
thin margins separating rival can-
didates for governor in four states
may mean that the outcome won't
be finally determined for weeks.
In two of the states, Minnesota
and Rhode Island, no unofficial
winner has yet been decided. Re-
counts are possible in those two
states and in Maine and Massa-

To Resist
HAVANA (AM)-- Cuban officials
insist that no Cuban merchant
vessels will submit to inspection
of any kind, diplomatic sources re-
ported last night.
The reported . Cuban position
raised the possibility of United
States - Cuban confrontations on
the high seas.
The diplomatic informants add-
ed that Cuban ships were said to
have received orders not to stop
for inspection no matter what the
consequences may be.
No Cuban ocean-going ship was
known to be en route to Cuba at
this time.
In negotiations at United Na-
tions headquarters in New York,
the Soviet Union has agreed to
permit representatives of the in-
ternational committee of the Red
Cross to board Cuba-bound Soviet
ships or ships under Soviet char-
ter to make arms inspections.
But presumably permission to
board a Cuban ship would have to
come from Havana.
United States sources at United
Nations headquarters have said
the United States will insist on
inspection of all Cuba-bound ships,
including Cuban ships. These
sources maintained that should
any ships refuse to submit to the
Red Cross inspection 'once the
present blockade is lifted, the Unit-
ed States will feel free to take any

To Remove
42 Missiles
By Monday
Take Photographs
Of Russian Rockets
I Waterproof Cases
WASHINGTON (o) -- United
States warships began yesterday
their at-sea checking of Soviet
missiles from Cuba and reported
seeing nuclear rockets on the decks
of outbound ships which jcooperat-
ed with the examination.
At the United Nations, a Soviet
representative was reported to
have given United States officials
a list of 42 missiles and their sup-
porting equipment and to have
said all would be clear of the Com-
munist-ruled island by Monday.
This count was close to an ear-
lier one given by Soviet Premier
Nikita S. Khrushchev. The 42 fig-
ure is believed also to be some-
where in the area of estimates by
United States intelligence officials.
Kuznetsov Reports
Officials here said the report at
the United Nations came from Vas-
ily Kuznetsov, Soviet deputy for-
eign minister and Khrushchev's
special representative in Cuba.
In accordance with arrange-
ments made earlier, the naval ves-
sels drew close alongside four So-
viet merchantmen early yesterday
and later reported sighting what
appeared to be missiles on the
decks of three of them.
Russian crewmen were said to
have pulled back canvases from
the bulky deck loads and disclosed
to the Navy observers what ap-
peared to be missiles encased in
skin-tight waterproof coverings to
protect them from weather and
