Nations Acting Secretary-General
U Thant said yesterday he has
forwarded to United States offi-
cials new Cuban and Soviet pro-
posals for settling the Cuban
He declined, however, to dis-
close them, and Cuban, Soviet and
United States delegation sources
could not be reached for comment.
Thant told newsmen he passed
the proposals on Thursday-the'
same day he received a letter from
Cuban Prime Minister Fidel Castro
warning that Cuban antiaircraft
batteries would shoot down any
United S t a t e s reconnaissance
planes flying over Cuban.
Sticks to His Peace
Castro also stuck to his "peace
with dignity" proposal which con-
tains five demands for settlement
of the crisis. These include United
States withdrawal from the Guan-
tanamo Bay Naval Base in Cuba
and a lifting of trade embargoes,
among other things.
A United Nations spokesman
said Tuesday that Soviet First
Deputy Foreign Minister Vasily V.
Kuznetsov and Cuban Delegate
Carlos M. Lechuga had discussed
"specific joint proposals" with
Thant that day. But the follow-
ing day he said Thant had not yet
relayed them to the United States
because he was not authorized to
do so.
Subsequently both Cuban and
United States sources. denied
knowledge of any new proposals.
But both Kuznetsov and United
States Delegate Adlai E. Stevenson
spoke of progress in their nego-
tiations after a long meeting
Thursday night.
Seek Agreement
The negotiations, and Thant's
mediation, aim at carrying out
an Oct. 28 agreement between
President John F. Kennedy and
Soviet Premier Nikita S. Khrush-
chev for removal of Soviet "offen-
sive weapons" from Cuba under
United Nations supervision, and a
United States pledge against in-
vasion of Cuba.
The Soviet Union has withdrawn
42 surface-to-surface missiles,
which were checked out by the
United States Navy, but has not
yet pulled out about 30 IL-28 jet
bombers. At the same time, Cuba

Adenauer Tries To Save
Government Coalition
BONN (F)-German Chancellor Konrad Adenauer failed yester-
day to dissuade junior partners in his West German coalition govern-
ment from their demand that Defense Minister Franz Josef Strauss
be fired.
Informants reported, however, both sides agreed the coalition
should be saved.
Erich Mende, leader of the Free Democrats who serve as par-
liamentary partners with Adenauer's Christian Democrats, came out.

nothing had changed the party's
demand that Strauss be removed
because of his admitted involve-
ment in a heavily-criticized gov-
ernment crackdown on the maga-
zine "Der Spiegel."
But Christian Democratic sources
reported Mende and Adenauer
agreed in their meeting on keep-
ing up the coalition against the
opposition Socialists.
Ease Out Strauss
One high government source said
Strauss would be eased out of his
cabinet post after elections in Ba-
varia in a week.
This would shape up as a com-
The Free Democrats had threat-
ened to pull five of their members
out of Adenauer's cabinet unless
their demand on Strauss' removal
is met. The withdrawal of the
Free Democrats would leave Ade-
nauer in a precarious position. His
party lost its parliamentary major-
ity in elections a year ago. Its
subsequent partnership with the
Free Democrats-a conservative
party--won Adenauer reelection.
Returns to Bonn
Adenauer returned to Bonn Fri-
day night from Washington ex-
pressing confidence he could over-
come his toughest political test in
his 13 years as West German lead-
The Free Democrats have schid-
uled a meeting in Nuernberg to-
morrow to decide formally on
Strauss' removal. They have charg-
ed that he embarrassed Parliament
by first denying then admitting he
had a role in closing "Der Spiegel"
and arresting its publisher and
five editors on suspicion of trea-
son, allegedly for an article about
West German defense capabilities.
The magazine has repeatedly at-
tacked Strauss on a number of
charges, including favoring friends
with defense contracts. Many West

Urges Soviets
To Explain

Kennedy May Detail
Cuba Position Tuesday
WASHINGTON (A) - President
John F. Kennedy is seeking a
prompt, decisive reply from Soviet
Premier Nikita S. Khrushchev on
removal from Cuba of about 30 jet
bombers capable of delivering nu-
clear bombs against United States
Kennedy is reported to have
made clear to Moscow through dip-
lomatic channels that for the Unit-
ed States time is running out on
the bomber issue and the Soviet
government should make its posi-
tion known without delay.
Officials said he has not fixed
any time limit for new moves if
the jets are not taken out of Cuba
but it was considered significant
in official quarters that the Pres-
ident has set a news conference-
his first since Sept. 13-for 6 p.m.
Clear Up the Bombs
Authorities said it seems obvi-
ous that when he goes before the
American people to make a report
on the Cuban situation at that
time he will want to have uncer-
tainty over the bomber issue clear-
ed up.
If Khrushchev has by then re-
fused to make good on his com-
mitment of Oct. 28 to take out of
Cuba the weapons Kennedy con-
sidered offensive, the President
may order new measures to deal
with the situation.
Among those under considera-
tion is a blockade ban on shipment
of petroleum products to Cuba.
This would deny jet fuel for the
Two Problems
The long deadlock over the Ilyu-
shin-28 bombers is at the heart of
the new period of tension now
developing in the Cuban crisis. But
it is only one of the two major
The other is Cuban Prime Min-
ister Fidel Castro's threat made
public Friday to shoot at United
States planes which are flying re-
connaissance missions over Cuba.
United States officials evidently
are counting on Khrushchev to re-
strain Castro from what could be
considered both in Washington
and Moscow as rash and very dan-
gerous action.
The United States has given no-
tice that the flights will be con-
tinued regardless of what Castro
does about them and if he uses
force against United States recon-
naissance air craft the United
States will take immediate, force-
ful counteraction.
It is assumed here that at the
present stage Moscow would pre-
fer to avoid seeing the , situation
heated up.

Associated Press News Analyst
Rockefeller (R-New York) appar-
ently faces strong pressure from
GOP conservatives and liberals in
shaping the course he hopes will
lead to his nomination for United
States president in 1964.
Rockefeller, who dislikes labels,
is tabbed in the minds of most
politicians as a liberal, or at least
a moderate. His position on ma-
jor domestic issues is not far from
that of the man he would hope
to defeat, President John F. Ken-
During the election campaign,
for example, Rockefeller pledged
to push a state program aimed at
making "all the people well hous-
ed, well clothed, well fed, well edu-
cated and well protected from ad-
Modified Welfare State
To many Republicans this
sounded as if the governor's plat-
form contained a modified version
of the welfare state, although on a
pay-as-you-go basis.
While the governor's campaign
promise that there will be no in-
crease in state taxes may present
some difficulties, there is every
evidence he will stick to his budg-
et-balancing philosophy.
Rockefeller's demonstrated abil-
ity in the past balance income and
expenditures has made him palat-
able to some GOP conservatives
without damaging his standing
among the party's liberals.
Multitudinous Considerations
But the governor appears likely
to have to consider a number of
factors in charting his course to-
ward 1964.
In the first place, the primary
asset in his arsenal of political
weapons is his twice-demonstrated
ability to carry New York state.
Most Republicans are rather cer-
tain they'll have to have New
York's electoral votes if they are
to defeat Kennedy's bid for a sec-
ond term.
But New York presents some
special problems. A conservative
Republican ticket headed by David R
H. Jaquith as a candidate for gov-
ernor polled 126,131 votes in the

Plan for Primary
By The Associated Press
LANSING-Bi-partisan legisla-
tion designed to restore the tradi-
tional September primary-some-
thing Michigan hasn't had in a
dozen years-is being planned by
Rep. Lucille H. McCullough (D-
Dearborn). Complaints from poli-
ticians and voters about the length
of the 1962 election campaign
caused her to consider the bill, to
be introduced in the 1963 session.

Nov. 6 balloting. If anything, Ja-
quith was more violent in his' de-
nunciations of Rockefeller than
was the Democratic nominee, Rob-
ert M. Morgenthau.
Must Placate GOP
The conservatives are guaran-
teed a place on the 1964 ballot, if
they want to put up candidates.
If Rockefeller fails to placate
them, they conceivably could deny
him the votes he might need to
beat Kennedy in New York.
On the other hand, if the gover-
nor turns to the right to please
conservatives he stands to lose a

. pressures from the party
great deal of the kind of liberal
support that gave him a second
term and which put Sen. Jacob K.
Javits (R-NY) back in the United
State Senate for another six years
by a far greater margin.
Rockefeller's problem is com-
pounded also by the disagreement
between party liberals and con-
servatives about how to win an
election in which the traditional
odds are with the incumbent Pres-

The liberals think the case for
concentrating efforts on the big
industrial states was strengthen-
ed by Rockefeller's reelection in
New York and Republican gov-
ernor victories in Pennsylvania,
Ohio and Michigan.
Rockefeller fits the pattern of
the kind of nominee they think
could win in these states and pos-
sibly in California.
On the other hand, conservatives
generally believe that if the Re-
publicans win in 1964 it will be
because they are able to combine
a bloc of Southern with Midwest-
ern and Western electoral votes.
Hold No Illusions
Even if Southern voters are as
disillusioned with Kennedy, as
some of the election returns seem-
ed to indicate, it would be hard to
make them enthusiastic about
Rockefeller. Rockefeller's advocacy
of and actions on civil right. are
about as advanced, as those of
any man on the national scene.
The conservatives haven't been
able to nominate a Republican
presidential candidate in modern
times. But some, like Sen. Barry
Goldwater (R-Ariz) profess to see
some good traits in Rockefeller.
Goldwater said recently Rockefel-
ler is "much closer to the con-
servatives than the conservatives
want to admit."
Proves Validity
Sen. John G. Tower (R-Tex)
promptly proved the validity of
that statement with the observa-
tion that he does not consider
Rockefeller a logical candidate for
the 1964 GOP nomination. He said
he favors Goldwater.
The possibility of welding a
ticket that would appeal to both
factions of the party has occurred
to some. A Rockefeller - Goldwater
lineup has been discussed.
But Sen. Clifford P. Case (R-
NJ), who is trying to rally GOP
liberals to sound a louder voice
in party affairs, said he didn't
think this was "a likely or a logi-
cal proposition."

Havana Denies
FBI Charges
Of Sabotage
KEY WEST A')-Havana Radio
said yesterday's New York arrests
in an alleged Cuban sabotage plot
were "a Yankee maneuver" to
counteract the sensation of a sab-
otage plot foiled in Cuba.
The Cuban government radio
broadcast, monitored in Key West,
said "the slanderous accusation
against three Cuban citizens" by
the Federal Bureau of Investiga-
tion stemmed from "the recent ar-
rest of a United States central in-
telligence agent in Cuba who tried
to blow up a mining installation."
Several days ago the Castro gov-
ernment arrested a Cuban, accus-
ed him of being chief agent of the
CIA, and said he tried to cause an
explosion that would have endan-
gered the lives of 400 workers in
the Matahambre Copper Mine in
Pinar Del Rio Province.
