FEBRUARY 7 1963 UOc a copy No 310 Displaying our wares in Mexico Trade fair is biggest By BERT QUINT New York Herald Tribune News Service MEXICO CITY Mexicans who for the most part think of the US in terms of big busi ness and baseball will get a chance to peek at other aspects of American life during the US Trade Fair here Feb 828 The fair largest American exposition ever to be sent abroad will be more than its name implies US advances in culture sports and science will be displayed along with in dustrial and agricultural ex hibits and the aim is to im press the Mexican housewife and shoemaker as much as the magnate Sponsored by the US Dept of Commerce the fair gives a notsosubtle plug to the Al liance for Progress by bearing the title Allied in Progress and by playing up the fact that there is a satellite tracking sta tion in Guaymas Mexico manned by Mexicans and Amer icans A Mercury space capsule complete with tower and a model of a spaceman inside will be displayed as will models of the Telstar Ranger Mariner and Tiros satellites There also will be such in dentions as office thinking machines modern surgical equipment textile machinery automobiles and mining con struction and agricultural equip ment on display But what probably will draw the most oohs and ahs is the exhibit to be called The Lightning Kitchen of the Fu ture By flicking a switch the attendant will set the kitchen to plates mopping the floor and doing just about everything else except going out for the groceries Another event calculated to have Juanita Publicos tongue hanging out is a showing of vacation fashions created by Oleg Cassini and nine other top American designers To please the men in case they are not sufficiently enter tained by watching the pretty Mexican girls who model these clothes there will be an ex hibition of US television genius The fashion show will be videotaped in color and tele vised over closed circuit min utes after it ends The speed with which this will be done and the fact that Mexicans arc as yet unfamiliar with color TV should make for an im pressed audience Figuring that turn about is fair play and that Americans have marveled over Mexican folk dances for years the fairs organizers have scheduled a scries of American folk dances To further reverse traditional roles the Americans will make a pitch for the Mexican peso by showing off US tourist attrac tions The American government tourism agency which recently opened an office here will have a display of air rail and bus routes north of the border as well as models of jets trains and buses with explanations of how the jets operate In all more than 100 Amer ican companies will participate in the fair CRASH KILLS 25 VARGINHA Brazil passenger bus carrying 45 pas sengers

watches Secretary of Defense Robert administration handling of what the McAamara lead off televised news con senator termed was a Soviet military ference on the Cuban situation In buildup in Cuba GOP not convinced Soys Red threat remains in Cuba FROM OUR WIRE SERVICES WASHINGTON Republican critics of the administrations Cuba policy served notice Thursday they still are con vinced for the most part thati the Soviet threat remains in the Caribbean island The administration sought to answer the critics Wednesday in an unprecedented twohour public intelligence briefing Some Republicans compli mented the presentation but those who were critical earlier remained that way Senate GOP leader Everett Dirksen said the televised re port actually demonstrated as nothing else could that Cuba still is a Soviet base endanger ing the Americas Earlier Sen Kenneth Keat ing RNY said Defense Sec retary McNamara did not dispute in any manner any of the statements I have made with regardto the Cuba build up McNamara said at the end of the briefing that Keating should make good his promise to eat his hat if the ad of re ministration proved the fensive threat has been moved from Cuba Rep Donald Bruce RInd who charged Monday that there are 40 Soviet offensive missiles in Cuba said after the brief ing that he still was convinced the missiles are there At the same time the Senate Prepared ness subcommittee pushed ahead with its Cuba in quiry unaffected by the brief ing McNamara at his briefing said he believed beyond any reasonable doubt that allof fensive weapons have been removed from the island and none have been reintroduced He called on JohiTp Hughes a Pentagon intelligence con sultant to do mostof the de tailing Hughes produced massive array of aerial photo graphs and explained the sig nificance of each one McNamara said Since July 1 more than 400 reconnaissance flights have been made over Cuba and is land wide flights continue at least once a week The Russians methodically destroyed the offensive mis sile sites even breaking up the concrete with bulldozers US planes went so far as to follow the ships which took the missiles out of Cuba back to the Black Sea to make sure they did not turn back Pictures taken as recently as Monday showed the Russian missile and bomber bases inac tive McNamara said he had no evidence that Cuba is being used as a base for subversion in other Latin American coun tries There is positive evidence that there are no Russian sub marine bases on the island Since the Octobercrisis Rus sia has pulled about 5000 troops out of Cuba leaving about 17000 Sovietmilitary person nel including technicians in Cuba today This includes four combat forces each of about lr 000 to 1250 men Central Intelligence director John A McCone also said re

The Steinbachers had moved the fence towards the house about 10 feet to keep it from be ing damaged Offensive defensive U S ponders Cuban trap IV MARGUERITE H1GAIN3 in PiiKo j By MARGUERITE H1GGINS New York Herald Tribune News Service WASHINGTON Has the US plunged into a trap of its own making in attempting to make a distinction between offensive and defensive So viet weapons inside Cuba Can a machine gun a tank let alone a 25miierange mis sile be considered a defen sive weapon in the hands of a man who says It is the duty of leaders to make the masses march to launch the masses into battle as Fidel Castro put it in his speech of Jan 16 And what about the MIG21S in Cuba piloted by both Rus sians and Cubans These have a range of 700 miles which means they can penetrate deep into the US as Secre tary of State Rusk himself admits these MIGs can be adapted to carry nuclear weapons These are questions the country is hearing increasing ly from Congress and from responsible officials who be lieve it is necessary to ask publicly whether the admin istration did not prematurely raise its quarantine on Cuba Even inside the New Frontier there have been of ficials who have warned from the start that the word weap on and the word defensive are contradictory and that as applied to Soviet interven tion in Cuba the concept of defensive weaponry is a grave handicap to the exercise of Americas national interest For example if the US limits its definition of offen sive weapons to medium range and longrange missiles plus medium bombers this appears to give a green light to the Russians to proceed with impunity to supply Cuba with all sorts of weapons that happen to be outside that category It is probably true that there have been only two large shiploads of arms since the quarantine was lifted But in light of the military threats made by the Cubans against the US and the Western hemisphere many feel these were two deliveries too many This goes straight to the point that the US would al most certainly not tolerate additional arms deliveries if the administration did not feel obliged to adhere to the dis tinction between offensive and defensive weapons the latest deliveries presumably falling into the latter category The Kremlinologists can theorize all they like about whether Khrushchev would or would not dare to put nuclear weapons in Cuba but the truth is that this country does not know whether nuclear warheads have been brought to the Caribbean The 18000 Soviet troops now admitted to be in Cuba are there of course to thwart any attempt by the Cuban people or anybody else to get rid of Castro Com munism has never in history been successfully imposed without resort to the Red army which by bringing a Soviet military presence to the Caribbean has upset the world balance of power just as certainly as if the defen sive weapons were labeled offensive On Sept 4 1962 the White House issued a statement warning that if organized So viet combat forces were dis covered in Cuba the gravest issues would arise The Rus sians have chosen to disre gard that warning The impression given today by the administration is that it is trying to minimize the situation in Cuba It is cer tainly the impression of the Communist diplomats about town and it indicates why Russia is proceeding to con solidate its military position in Cuba rather than dismantle it The New Frontier apparent ly overestimating the extent of its Cuban victory and over estimating the embarrass ment to the Soviets of Khru shchevs limited retreat re laxed pressure early on Cuba as a facesaving gesture to the Russians So the Russians using the sanctuary provided by concept of defensive weap ons continued after the blockade to transform Cuba into what is now the second greatest military power in the Western hemisphere for Cubas defensive weapons are second in power only to the weapons offensive or de fensive of the United States
