Adenauer cautions U.S.
bout Soviet Intentions
BONN (A')-Chancellor Konrad Adenauer esaid yesterday the
West should not negotiate with the Soviet Union until Soviet Premier
Nikita Khrushchev shows more evidence of an earnest desire to settle
East-West tensions.
In this connection, the West German leader, on the eve of his
flight to the United States for talks with President John F. Kennedy,
cautionel Americans against optimism about Cuban developments.
" Expressing skepticism that the
Russians have removed their rock-
ets from Cuba, Adenauer said the
fact that Soviet ships have been
photographed leaving the Carib-
bean island with long, covered
tubes aboard proves nothing.
He said it was dangerous to let
the Russians depict themselves as
great peace-lovers by this move
and declared the Kremlin wants
to keep Cuba intact as a Com-
munist center in the Americas.
The 86-year-old Chancellor, who
4 is having his political troubles at
home, expressed his views to a
small group of American corres-
pondents. He asked not to be
quoted directly.
Adenauer made plain that Ber-
lin would be among the chief is-

President Kennedy, but he showed

PARIS (P)-Gen. Lauris Nor-
stad, Supreme Allied Commander
in Europe, told North Atlantic
Treaty Organization parliamen-
tarians yesterday his forces are
"critically short" in many ways,
adding up to 'deficiencies of ser-
ious proportions."
Norstad, who was kept on the
job past his retirement date be-
cause of the Cuban crisis, was
reporting to legislators of the
NATO 15-member countries on
the status of Allied forces drawn
up as a protection against Soviet
aggression. Despite the deficien-
cies, however, Norstad asserted:
Significant Force
"Our force, looked at in the
political and military context of
today, is a significant one. It is
force to be reckoned with on the
land, on the sea and in the air.,,
The commander said the Allied
force is still shy several major
units and that many of those
that are available are seriously
short in combat and service sup-
port. He said there is a "general
lag" in furnishing modern equip-
Grave Disadvantage
The net result, he said, would
be to put Allied troops at a grave
disadvantage in the event of hos-
He pleaded with the legislators
to see that their governments
build up to the force goals which
have been agreed upon for some
years. Nevertheless, he said, "The
progress which has been made
toward the attainment of these
goals permits me to make the
judgment that, within the limits
and for the purposes of our di-
rective from the political author-
ities, NATO Euroope can be de-
'Unnecessary Risks'
"But I must add-and hasten
to add-that until the goals are
fully met we are subjecting our-
selves to unnecessary risks in the
process of this defense. What re-
mains to be done is relatively
small compared to what already
has been accomplished. We have
only a short distance to go-but
this distance is critical."
Turning to the problem of ade-
quate reserves, Norstad suggested
an extension of the system of
large-scale stockpiling to reduce
the need for massive airlifts. As
he put it, this system would per-
mit the soldier to move as an
airline passenger carrying little
more than his rifle and 40 pounds
of baggage. This, hie said, would
permit "the fullest exploitation of
the vast commercial air transport
services available to the West."
"We must have whatever mili-
tary transport may be required to
meet the normal needs of our
services and our strategy," he

Reuther backed down from his
reported determination of a few
days earlier to challenge what he
considers a veto power exercised
by Meany, the AFL-CIO president,

former CIO unions. Reuther was

Instead of the bolt from the
merged labor movement that had
been threatened by Reuther's auto

the two contesting labor leaders

ment of their policy differences.
Reuther issued a statement stress-

Tshombe Denounces
UN Bombing Charge
ELISABETHVILLE (P)-Katanga yesterday denounced and for-
mally denied United Nations allegations that its provincial air force
bombed five points Saturday in a North Katanga area controlled
by troops of the Congo's central government.
As if in reply, the UN announced in New York: "UN air fighter
units have instructions to react immediately to Katangan aircraft
engaged in offensive operations." Katanga President Moise Tshombe's

regime charged that the UN is-
sued reports of the bombing with-
out confirmation-was applying
psychological warfare to justify
another military operation against
Katanga-overrun by a heavy UN
assault last year.
A communique referred bitterly
to the stalemate in negotiations
about Congolese unity and said,
"in spite of all our good will,
Leopoldville refuses to accept all
Elisabethville agreements."
"The UN now thinks of only one
solution, looking for an excuse
to start a military action again,"
it said. "We have seen the man-
euver and, although we still wish
for a national reconciliation, Ka-
tanga is ready."
'Reliable' Reports
The UNU story of the bombing
Saturday was based on what UN
officials called "fairly reliable" re-
ports relayed from the Leopold-
ville office of Robert K. A. Gard-
iner, chief of the UN operation in
the Congo.
It was estimated that about 10
planes, including some DC-3s,
might have carried out the raid.

bunda, a hospital at Masemba'
and the area of a Lukuga River
bridge near Kabeya Maji were'
