United States might be forced to intervene in Cuba for its own the other American states fail to fight ef fectively against communist Downfall of Castro nearing Victory may be hollow By WILLIAM L RYAN Associated Press News Analyst MIAMI Fla the Havana radio proclaimed as a triumph for the Castro regime over its enemies may yet turn out to be the beginning of its downfall There were some things wrong with the Havana proclamation First the voice of the maxi mum leader still was curiously missing Second it conceded that anti Castro guerrillas had dispersed into hiding The antiCastro revolutionary council claims they have joined up with holdout rebels in the Escambray Moun tains and if so they are begin ning a resistance oddly similar to the one which brought the 26th of July Movement to pow er after a long hitandrun struggle SINCE THE victory of Fidel Castros 26th of July Movement on New Years Day 1959 there has been no pronouncement as important to the regime as the one Thursday morning In the past Castro himself never missed an opportunity to make an announcement of major importance Invariably he has taken to radio and tele vision and spoken for four or five hours at a stretch on mat ters far less critical than the business before the regime Thursday What has happened to him Is he just playing it safe cagily staying in the background until the smoke clears That would be unlike him Castro has had a penchant for lumbering loudly into any and all situations and dominating the show HAS HE BEEN shoved aside by the Communists who may feel he committed blunders which interfered with Soviet bloc efforts to organize the country and its economy in the image of a peoples racy It is possible Therej have been signs of Soviet ani noyancc with him j Is Castro still among the liv penetration of this hemisphere In a fighting speech he said U S restraint in intervening in Cuba is not inexhaustible Kennedys words were direct ed not only at Cuba and Castro but over their shoulders at Rus sia and Soviet Premier Nikita S Khrushchev The President said the rebels who invaded Cuba this week and have now fled to the moun tains are determined that Cuba must not be abandoned to the Communists And we do not intend to abandon it either he solemnly pledged Bluntly branding the Russians as those whose character was stamped for all time on the bloody streets of Budapest the President made it clear that he would not be deterred by Soviet threats He said Should it ever appear that the interAmerican doctrine of noninterference merely con ceals or excuses a policy of non the nations of this hemisphere should fail to meet their commitments against out side Communist intervention then I want it clearly under stood that this government will not hesitate in meeting its pri mary obligations which are to the security of our nation Speaking before the American Society of Newspaper Editors he declared that the revolt of the antiCastro forces this week is not over The Cuban people have not yet spoken their final piece and I have no doubt that they will continue to speak up for a free and independent Cuba Nor Kennedy said will this country accept Castros at tempts to blame the United States for the hatred his one lime supporters now have for his repression THE PRESIDENTS address amounted to a major foreign PRESIDENT KENNEDY words policy pronouncement The President said that those who staged automatic riots in the streets of free nations over the effort of Cubans to regain their freedom should recall the roll call of refugees who can not go back now to Hungary North Korea North Viet Nam East Germany Poland or to other lands from which a steady stream of refugees testifies to the cruel oppression now holding jsway in their homelands Kennedy added that there are from this sobering episode useful lessons for all to learn and the United States intends to profit by them FIRST HE SAID the peril to freedom will continue to rise if the selfdiscipline of the free mind cannot match the iron discipline of the mailed fist in economic political scientific and all other kinds of struggles as well as military Secondly it is clear that this nation in concert with all the free nations of this hemisphere must take an even closer and more realistic look at the men ace of external Communist in tervention and domination in Cuba It was not Cubas size that posed a threat he said but the fact that Cuba was a base for subversionof the hemisphere Third it is clearer than ever that we face a relentless strugi CAUGHT NAPPING Norways Sivert Nielsen looks

American business and create jobs He said a possible general tax cut should wait until next year The President said his posals would attack expense account living discourage tax cheating and reduce the worri some flow of US dollars abroad without cutting into federal revi enues In a 6300word special mes sage Kennedy described his program as a first though ur gent step toward broad tax re form in

departure from a custom in which Castro an nounced everything WHATEVER THE answer to the questions it seems likely that something has happened to change the status of Castro And something has happened too to the status of the regime because of the strike against it by people on the outside who want passion ately to return in peace to their homeland The regime has no guarantee that there will not be
