Khrush chev In his Oct 27 message to Khrushchev Kennedy said he un derstood the Soviets to have agreecl to remove offensive weapons systems from Cuba under appropriate United Na tions observation and

outbound Soviet ships Agreement on details was reached late Wednesday the sourcec said They added that the Soviet Un ion had made the proposal be cause of Cuban Prime Minister Fidel Castros opposition to inter national inspectors in Cuba The sources said the United States was quite happy with the agreement as far as it goes but its not a complete substitute for ontheground inspection In Washington

as Iowa governor next January The Methodist teetotaler said he would see that present laws are enforced until the laws are changed The 40yearold governorelect capped a campaign for liquor by the drink with an upset of Repub lican Gov Norman Erbe in Tues days election I realize Iowa wont have liq uor by the drink o v e r n i g h t Hughes said in an interview Thursday So when I take office I intend to do something immedi ately to enforce the present liquor laws Hughes said he will work hard to carry out his campaign pron Jses of liquor by the drink and I believe chances are good for changes in the liquor laws I dont think it will be impossible to get liquor law changes through the legislature Im convinced that 65 per cent of the Iowa citizens want liquor by the drink if it is properly en forced controlled and taxed He said he would have to study liquor control problems in more detail before outlining specific ways to stop illegal sale of liquor in Iowa Throughout his campaign Hughes criticized Erbe for failure to en force present liquor laws which limit the sale of liquor to bottles purchased in stateowned stores Hughes said that liquor laws were just one of many state prob lems

good schools Hughes said he has not been briefed on federal proposals to re align the Iowa National Guard a move fought bitterly by Erbe I assume the Defense Depart ment certainly knows what it is

appointee Maybe I can work with Pren lis on this Hughes said I will need bipartisan participation to get these programs going Hughes said he didnt think the Republicandominated legislature would battle him because he left the Republican Party in 1957 to become a Democrat Certainly a man is entitled to follow the dictates of his consci ence Hughes said I dont think this will create any
