MASQN OCTOBER o wa ns neighbors 10c Paper ol Two No 222 Ship chartered by Russia searched Cuba may be linked to Berlin More serious phase ahead By JOHN M HIGHTOWER WASHINGTON AP Soviet Premier Khrushchev may have ordered construction of missile bases in Cuba as part of a Krem 1m plot to put President Kennedy under a surprise threat of nuclear war in an attempt to force US concessions on Berlin This possible strategic purpose for the sudden and unexplained installation of Soviet nuclear mis siles 90 miles from the United States is being given serious con sideration in official quarters here It is one of the reasons why authorities are sticking grimly to their conviction that while the first phase of the Cuban crisis has been passed on the naval blockade front a second and po tentially far more serious phase is yet to come As to the nature of the second phase there are two possibilities in speculation One is that LMCKGROUND lin and may go through with his main plan in spite of the disclosure of the Cuban missile buildup The other is that the US government is de termined that the missiles must be removed from Cuba and the bases demolished The frantic diplomatic search for a peaceful way out of the crisis centered at the Uliited Na tions is so far little more than a lull in the diplomatic storm which broke over the world Mon day night A defense spokesman reports that Soviet missilemen and mili tary whom there are an estimated 5000 on the Caribbean still work ing at top speed to complete the bases and get whatever missiles are available to them in place The naval blockade force which President Kennedy set in motion Monday has proved an effective barrier to the introduction of more missiles into he island but the US action has not evidently put a halt to the Soviet activities already under way there The question of why the Soviet government set but on such a radicalnew course in its cold war strategy carrying a clear increase in the danger of nuclear war is a source of intense study among experts and policy makers for it may give clues to future Soviet behavior One point on which authorities seem agreed is that the thrust of Soviet nuclear striking power into the Western Hemisphere must represent a basic Soviet policy decision made much ear lier this year The indication is that the decision called for a switch to a much more aggres sive strategy with much greater reliance on military power to serve Moscows expansionist pur poses in the world Perhaps Khrushchev and his ad visers had decided that their peaceful coexistence efforts to penetrate Southern Asia Africa and Latin America by economic means were t o slow and too cost ly The projection of this analysis is that the Soviet government was compelled by frustration and im patience and perhaps by political discontent within the Soviet bloc to achieve some spectacular vic tories in the cold war by a more reckless brandishing of nuclear weapons than ever before If that was the policy theUS reaction upon discovery of the in stallations in Cuba seems to have given the Kremlin strategists a reason for pause and reassess ment Whether it has also per suaded them

these days of crisis President Kennedy s putting in 12 and 17 hour days at his desk A telephone is never more than a step or two away Even while he lounges in his rocker chatting with visitors a elephone dangles from the coffee able near his hand The grave challenges of Cuba are taking up about 90 per cent of his time But those about him say the President is making his decisions coolly and calmly While the executive mansion and its staff is geared for crisis it isnt quite on a wartune basis Tourists still parade through the White House But now they have to check their purses and packages outside Pickets are still permitted to patrol in front of the mansion and they seldom miss a day Banners of banthebomb groups are the ones most in evidence No unusual increase in security has been ordered The same num ber of secretservice agents are still guarding the President and his family However the White House police have been getting some overtime and a few metro politan police are

period of two or three weeks for negotiations during which the United States would suspend its blockade and the Soviet Union would halt arms shipments to Cuba Kennedys reply read by Stev enson to the Security Counci Thursday avoided any mention o suspension of the blockade Bu White House sources made plain that the quarantine would continue for the time being They said the US government still insists on the removal of nuclearcapable missiles from Cuba Khrushchev accepted Thant appeal but his agreement to hal arms shipments to Cuba was con ditional on US suspension of the blockade The Security Council agreed Thursday night to suspend debate indefinitely on the explosive issue pending the talks During a stormy session Stevenson and So viet Deputy Foreign Minister Va lerian A Zorin accused each other of lying and trickery At one point Stevenson chal lenged Zorin to give an immedi ate answer whether the Soviet Union had put medium and inter mediate range missiles in Cuba When Zorin October president of the council told him he would lave to wait until the proper time for his reply Stevenson retorted I am ready to wait until hell freezes over The exchange arose from Zor ins complaint that Kennedy did not inform Soviet Foreign Minis er Andrei A Gromyko in their aiks in Washington last week that the United States had proofof offensive Soviet weapons in Cuba Ill tell you why your foreign minister was not informed Stev enson retorted his voice shaking with anger Because we were as sembling the evidence We wanted to see how far a Soviet official would go in perfidy Later stung by a jibe of Zorins that the United States had toned down its position on Cuba because t lacked proof Stevenson asked for the floor We have the proof and will show it to you he said And let me say something else These weapons must be taken out of Tuba Stevenson then displayed aerial photographs of what he said were four missile bases and one jet airfield built by the Soviet Union n
