to action By FRED S HOFFMAN WASHINGTON Pen tagons information chief has ad mitted the Kennedy administra tion controlled news of govern ment actions in the Cuban crisis as a weapon in the drive to force the dismantling of Soviet mis sile bases in Cuba News flowing from actions tak en by the government is part of the weaponry said Syl vester assistant secretary of de fense for public affairs He told a reporter the timing of announcements the rank of the government official making the announcement and other factors figured in the strategy which he summed up as speaking in one voice to your adversary Puffing if another way Sylves ter said In the kind of world we live in the generation of news by actions taken by the govern ment becomes one weapon in a strained situation The results in my opinion justify the methods we used Some of the announcements like the callup of 14000 Air Force Reserves in troop carrying were Soviets that this1 country meant business So were the repeated and point ed references by State Depart ment and Pentagon officials to President Kennedys declaration that further action will be justi fied if offensive military prepa rations continued in Cuba V K MENON Nehru lakes action as critics level barrage on Red attack NEW DELHI Min ister Nehru Wednesday took over the Defense Ministry from V K Krishna Menon Menon was named minister of defense pro duction A Cabinet communique an nounced the change It came in a rising tide of criticism of Menon for failing to prepare Indias de fenses Adequately against Chinese Communist attack The announcement said Presi dent Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan asked Nehru to take over the Indias northeast and northwest defense post ern frontiers showed a grave In fact Nehru has been han dling the job for the past week

against all critics But the initial setbacks in the Red Chinese invasion along N ews in a nutshell FROM OUR WIRE SERVICES Obviously a variation of the same overall strategy was adopt ed for the new phase which the Cuban affair entered with the agreement in principle for remov al of Sovietrocket bases from the island As late as Monday night solid information was impossible to ob tain on such points as whether the promised dismantling was actual ly under way Two probable aims for that pol icy appeared to be To keep the other side guessing during negotiations on the details as to just how much the United States knows and To head off public evaluations of such information which in the view of officials might heat up the situation anew The governments actions in the news field during the past week of crisis were extraordinary for a shortofwar situation The chief sources of news on the Cuban developments were the White House the Defense Depart ment and the State Department At the Defense Department Syl vester kept a tight rein on the in dividual armed services particu larly the Navy which was playing the chief identifiable role by en forcing the arms blockade of Cuba All military news of the block ade was channeled through Syl vester who appeared at briefings held generally twice a day and made special announcements usually where television cameras could chronicle the event Hawaii rattled shock wave Demonstrations protested The US Embassy has protested to the Soviet foreign Ministry against anti Ameri can demonstrations during the Cuban crisis A note complained
