York Tribune News Service WASHING President Kennedyis convinced that Cuban Premier Fidel Castros popularity at home is going steadily down hill As a result administration policy toward Cuba is to en courage this slippage in popu larity but do nothing that would make the bearded Cuban dicta tor a martyr at home and elsewhere in Latin America Mr Kennedy has told intimates there will be no invasion of Cuba and that the use of mill tary force wont solve oui problem The Communist target the President is known to feel is all of Latin America There fore he believes the United States must view the problem in these broader terms and at all costs avoid any action that would again create the kind of sympathy Castro enjoyed in Latin America after the AprTlt invasion of his country by Unit ed Statesbacked Cuban exiles Kennedys view is that the Cuban premiers popularity peaked during and just after the April invasion but has de clined steadily since then His view is based on reports of in ternal events in Cuba filtering to Washington through the gov ernments intelligence and in formationgathering branches All of this represents a radi cal shift in administration pol icy in the six

nuclear testing is harmful to health We will stop when the others stop Khrushchev said in an swer to a question by correspondents If the West continues testing there will be more tests here This was a reflection of the Soviet device of blaming the West for beginning the testing of nuclear weapons although actually the moratorium was broken by the Soviet Union To further questions at a party honoring the 44th anniversary of the Bolshevik Revolution Khrushchev also said the Soviet Union does not want to hustle the West into a needlessly fast response on the Berlin But when asked how long the Soviet Union would wait he re plied Not indefinitely Khrushchev also denied re ports published in the West that three Soviet cosmonauts had been killed in midOctober in an attempted launching of a

responsibility Now the wheel has come full circle and the administration is opposed not only to the use of force but to any action that might once again place Castro in the martyr role For this reason Kennedy has so far re jected suggestions that trade with Cuba be cut off entirely For this would once again give Castro a chance to blame the United States As it is USCuban trade is down to a relative trickle From a totaltwoway trade of 000000 a few years ago trade is now down to million US exports limited to foodstuffs and million in imports mostly tobacco and fruit While no official action has
