To Clear Way for Revised Cabinet Structure
BONN QP)-German Defense Minister Franz Josef Strauss, center
of a controversy that has shaken the government, and all other Chris-
tian Democrats in the cabinet offered their resignations yesterday,
informed sources said.
The decision, clearing a way for formation of a new cabinet, was
taken at a meeting of Christian Democrat members of parliament.
They told German Chancellor Konrad Adenauer in a unanimous opin-
ion that he should step down next

In Nations' Relations
House announced yesterday that
President John F. Kennedy will
confer with Soviet First Deputy
Premier Anastas I. Mikoyan here
tomorrow afternoon.
The Washington visit by Mikoy-
an, whom many regard as second
only to Soviet Premier Nikita S.
Khrushchev, opened the way for a
broadening of United States-So-
viet discussions which in past
weeks have been confined to the
Cuban crisis.
To Meet Today
Mikoyan's White House appoint-
ment was set for 4:30 p.m. tomor-
row. The Russian leader is expect-
ed to see Secretary of State Dean
Rusk and other United States of-
ficials during his stay..
The still-unsolved Cuban dis-
pute is expected to be on the agen-
da for the Mikoyan visit. But in-
formants said that now that the
main part of the Cuban crisis is
over, the talks with Mikoyan are
likely to cover a broad range of
That would amount to somewhat
of a thaw of the freeze on diplo-
matic dealings with the Soviets
which Kennedy imposed at the
start of confrontation with Russia
over Cuba.
Focus on Cuba
Aides said the President at that
time directed that dealings with
the Russians focus on the Cuban
issue until United States demands
for the removal of offensive weap-
ons from Cuba were accepted. How
much of a thaw develops would
depend on how well negotiations
with the Soviets proceed in New

CONFER ON KEY ISSUES-President John Kennedy (right)
and Soviet First Deputy Premier Anastas Mikoyan will meet to-
morrow and Friday to hash over many prime areas of concern
to East and including settlement of the Cuban situation.
Western Heads To Meet
AboutCold War Issues
LONDON (P)-British Prime Minister Harold Macmillan last
night disclosed new Western moves have begun for a bit-by-bit
settlement of the Cold War with the Soviet Union.
He told Parliament he intends to discuss a wide range of
measures designed to ease East-West tensions in the aftermath

year, informants reported.
Among those resigning was Vice-
Chancellor Ludwig Erhard, the
economics minister credited with
restoring the West German econo-
my after World War II. He often
has been mentioned as Adenauer's
Letters to Adenauer
The letters of resignation were
supposed to be in Adenauer's hands
last night, informants said.
The aim is to reorganize the cab-
inet to get the minority Free Dem-
ocratic Party back in the coalition
government. Their five ministers
quit the cabinet last week because
of the Spiegel affair involving
Whether Strauss will fight to
hold his office in the new cabinet
was not clear. Party sources said
he may quit voluntarily. One re-
port said Adenauer had offered the
defense post to Paul Luecke, hous-
ing minister.
The Wrath of Strauss
Strauss incurred the wrath of
the Free Democrats and the op-
position Socialists when he first
denied, then admitted he had a
hand in the arrest of the publisher
and four editors of the news maga-
zine "Der Spiegel" on suspicion of
The arrests were widely viewed
as revenge because the magazine
had repeatedly assailed Strauss.
Should Retire
The Christian Democrats told
Adenauer he should retire early
next year or at the latest in the
summer, informants said. There
has been a feeling in the party
that Adenauer no longer exercises
enough control since he lost a
parliamentary majority in last
fall's election.
Informants said the 86-year-old
chancellor said nothing when the
subject of his retirement was rais-
ed. They urged him to form a new
cabinet to be stable enough to stay
in office until the 1965 election,
and said toe question of his suc-
cessor should be decided at the
same time.
Urges Increased
Nuclear Planning
WASHINGTON (T) - Sen. John
0. Pastore (D-RI) last night urged
the fastest possible development of
nuclear rockets as "our best chance
to leapfrog the Soviets" in the
space race. At the same time, Pas-
tore indirectly criticized the pres-
ent space program for not utiliz-
ing auxiliary nuclear power devices
more fully in satellites.

Asks Board
To Vote Out
Merger Plan
Aeronautics Board (CAB) examin-
er recommended yesterday that
the CAB turn down a request by
American and Eastern Airlines to
He said it would tend to create
a monopoly.
Examiner Ralph L. Wiser, who
heard arguments on the proposal
for several months, said neither
airline is a failing business or is
unduly weak. Therefore, he said,
the merger cannot be justified on
the basis of business necessity.
American is the nation's second
largest air carrier and Eastern the
fourth largest.
To View Report
The five-man board will consider
Wiser's recommendations and pre-
sent its findings to President John
F. Kennedy, who will make the
final decision because internation-
al routes are involved.
In New York, American Airlines
said it expects the CAB to reverse
"The American-Eastern merger
proposal represents necessary prog-
ress and is in the public interest.
We are therefore confident that it
will be approved," the airline said
in a statement.
'Crippled' Transportation
Eastern, in similar vein, said the
"critical" financial condition of
through-route air carriers general-
ly calls for ending duplication of
routes and facilities "which are
crippling air transportation."
Wiser's report said that if East-
ern routes should regiure strength-
ening this could be done by other
He pointed out that the merged
airlines would extend over the
American continent into all parts
of the United States except the.
Northwest, and into Canada, Mex-
ico, Puerto Rico and Bermuda.
The Justice Department had op-
posed the merger as "repugnant"
to established antitrust principles.
There was opposition also from
some other airlines and from labor
unions. Stock Market witnesses
who favored it said a merger would
greatly improve the attitude of
professional investors toward the
airline industry as a whole.

Three weeks after the 1962 con-
gressional elections, elements with-
in the Republican party are be-
ginning to have second thoughts
about the party's strong showing
in the South.
"Advance," a national magazine
published by a young, liberal GOP
wing, has criticized the party's
national leadership for support-
ing pro-segregation candidates in
the South.
In an open letter to the Repub-
lican National Committee printed
in the December issue, the editors
of Advance declared, "Though a
traditionally conservative appeal to
the South is certainly acceptable,
a segregationist appeal is totally
unacceptable, both morally and
GOP Hitches
The editors claimed that by
"hitching the party wagon to the
falling star of segregation," Re-
publicans were hurting the party's
long-range prospects in the South
and embarrassing GOP office
seekers in other parts of the na-
Advance said that the GOP
should neither encourage nor fi-
nancially support segregationist
candidates. In this respect it at-

a moderate conservative movement
in the South whcih refutes segre-
gation policies. He said that men
like Senator John Tower (R-Tex)
are not part of this movement and
may hurt the party by their dog-
matic approach to issues. "Tower
is not a true conservative," Haus-
er said.
Stockmeyer Speaks
Steven Stockmeyer, '63, who, in
addition to serving as Student
Government Council president is
chairman of the state Young Re-
publican organization, was even
more emphatic in his concern over
Republican policy in the South.
"This has plagued the party for
a long while," he said. "We're
picking up voters in the South be-
cause the people are beginning to
realize that our philosophy is clos-
er to theirs than that of the na-
tional Democratic party.
"At the same time, we have the

party of segregation in the South
which the Democrats are now," he
Stockmeyer noted that not all
Republicans are exploiting the seg-
regation issue and mentioned
Georgia as one state where moder-
ates hold the balance of power
within the party. He was strongly
critical of Goldwater's role.
'Definite' Exploitation
"Goldwater is definitely exploit-
ing segregation for two reasons.
He is looking for Southern support
at the national convention in 1964,
and hehopes carry the South in
the election."
Stockmeyer said that the Gold-
water wing has been a bad influ-
ence on the party. "Personally, I
would sacrifice this support rath-
er than have the Republican party
become the party of segregation
