JFK rejecte-d
Cuban air stri~ke

From AP and UPI
BOSTON - Fragmented transcrip
and 33 minutes of scratchy recordin
from the Kennedy White House we
released vesterday and revealed a you
president and his advisers conte
plating, then rejecting, military acti
during the 1962 Cuban missile crisis.
Transcripts - 85 pages and heav
edited to delete the sensitive mater
- of the two off-the-record meetin
were released yesterday by the JF
Library in a timely parallel to the U
invasion of Grenada this week. '
THEY MADE it clear Kennedy w
determined to excise the missiles fro
Cuba, one way or another.
Kennedy's first reaction wast
prepare for military action. "I thinkw
ought to, beginning right now, 1
preparing," Kennedy said in the first(
the two recorded meetings. "We're ce
tainly going to do No. 1; we're goingt
take out these missiles."
The transcripts, occasionally blacke
out by NSC censors, showed Attorne
General Robert Kennedy, Vic
President Lyndon Johnson and othe
initially favored military action.
THE TRANSCRIPTS seem to i
dicate Secretary of State Dean Rus
and Gen. Maxwell Taylor, chairman(
the Joint Chiefs of Staff, favored a

strikes, followed by an invasion.
pts As the discussion continued, the
gs president and his men focused on the
ere liabilities of military action. Kennedy
ang was concerned that Soviet bombers
m- believed based in Cuba might attack
on U.S. cities, saying, "I would think you'd
have to assume they'd be using, uh, iron
ily bombs and not nuclear weapons
ial because obviously why would the
gs Soviets permit nuclear war to begin un-
'K der that sort of half-assed way?"
.S. Taylor warned that even a massive
air strike could not guarantee the
as destruction of all missiles. "Others
im worried of the impact a surprise attack
would have on trouble spots such as
to Berlin and Latin America.
we "OUR PRINCIPAL problem is to try
be and imaginatively to think what the
of world would be like if we do this," said
er- McGeorge Bundy, Kennedy's special
to assistant for national security affairs.
Rusk said air strikes could kill as
ed many as 2,000 Cubans and, "I think we
ey will be facing a situation that could well
ce lead to general war."
rs The course suggested by McNamara
ultimately was chosen.
n- Kennedy told the nation of the
sk situation six days later, ordered a naval
of blockade of Cuba and forced the Soviets
ir to remove the missiles from the island.

Lawrence Kasdan, University alumnus and Hollywood filmmaker, calls on a
member of the audience at yesterday's question and answer session at the
MLB. Kasdan is at the University this week as part of the writer-in-
residence program.
Mtnus Kasdan'4
film er

By THOMAS MILLER
Lawrence Kasdan is living proof that
not all LSA graduates end up in unem-
ployment lines or in graduate schools
getting an MBA.
Kasdan, a University alumnus and
one of Hollywood's top screen writers
and directors with films like Body Heat,
Return of the Jedi, and The Big Chill to
his credit, told an audience full of
aspiring movie makers that becoming
successful is not a futile pursuit.
"IT IS POSSIBLE to go from here to
Hollywood or New York as a screen-
writer," said Kasdan, who spoke at the
MLB as part of his week-long visit to
Ann Arbor. "The problem is figuring
out how to eat before someone will pay
you to make movies."
Kasdan is conducting workshops and
speaking to English and film classes
this week as a University writer-in-
residence.
He advised future screenwriters and
directors not to take film critics too
seriously, saying he felt that they
shouldn't be trusted.
"It's vital that people have their own
reaction. No two people see the same
movie," Kasdan said. "The media tries
hard to get between you and your work.
Movie reviews are irrelevant because
everybody's a critic."
HE ALSO encouraged students to
take advantage of the numerous
showings of older movies around cam-
pus - living in Ann Arbor affords a
great opportunity to see some of the
best films ever made, Kasdan said.
"You have to see the old movies -
demand to see them. Don't worry about
what's coming out of Hollywood now,"
he said.

He said that Hollywood makes too
many movies that sacrifice intellectual
issues for mindless thrills.
"IT'S NATURAL TO grow up in
America to go to the movies to be enter-
tained, but there's nothing wrong with
having a movie make you think,"
Kasdan said. "Unfortunately,
Hollywood thinks these movies don't
make money."
During the question and answer
session, Kasdan said he thinks the
University's film department concen-
trates too heavily on analyzing existing
films rather than teaching production
techniques.
"There's a need for more production
and writing classes. There is too much
criticizing and not enough doing,"
Kasdan said. "You've got to train
people to make art."
KASDAN TOLD the audience that he
doesn't have any new works in
progress. After working steadily for six
years, he said he needs to rest.
"Writing and directing takes over
your life. It's brutal to your personal
life," he said. But he added that "it's
better than I thought it would be. The
excitement only grows as you get more
involved."
Kasdan attended the University from
1966 until 1972, and won four Hopwood
Awards while he was a student. His
latest film, The Big Chill, depicts the
reunion of a group of University alum-
ni.
"I see myself as all the characters in
The Big Chill," he said, adding that the
friends he and his wife made in Ann Ar-
bor "have been the most meaningful
relationships of our lives."

We are looking for talented, experienced
directors, producers, and designers of costume, stage
sets, and choreography, as well as set and costume
builders and props persons.

"The government is saying that we
will use military force, whether it is
legitimate or not, to overthrow any
government that does not coincide with
the principles and thinking of the U.S.
(President Reagan) has clearly done
that in Grenada," said Walter Klipp, a
Vietnam veteran, who spoke while the
crowd was gathered at North Hall.
"LEARN AS we did that you are only
in the front when it is time to die,"
Klipp told members of the Reserve Of-
ficer Training Corps standing nearby.
Following a moment of silence for the
"victims of U.S. foreign policy" in
Grenada, Klipp said from the steps of
the ROTC building, "I hope that in two
or three years we won't have to hold a
moment of silence for the people inside
of this building."
Much of the anger at the rally was
directed at Reagan, who, according to
Klipp, was "playing a damn game of
golf" as plans for the invasion were
made.
"We say to Ronald Reagan, how

many more lives until you're
satisfied?" said graduate student Ben
Davis, a member of the Latin American
Solidarity Committee (LSAC). "We will
continue to fight until American
soldiers stop fighting against
freedom," he said while speaking to the
crowd in the Diag.
The rally was organized by members
of LASC and the Progressive Student
Network.
In East Lansing yesterday, a similar
rally drew only a dozen protestors,
some of whom were students at
Michigan State University. The demon-
strators rallied outside of a U.S. Marine
Corps Recruiting office near the MSU
campus to protest both the invasion of
Grenada and the presence of Marines in
Lebanon.
