Kennedy May Visit Russia WASHINGTON (AP)—President Kennedy held open today tho possibility that he might someday visit the Soviet Union if he were invited.

But he noted he has not been invited to visit the Soviet Union. Kennedy also said that at the moment there are important problems that must be solved before such a visit would be a matter of practical consideration—the problems of Berlin and Southeast Asia. local and area schools, 16 floats! from local and county organizations and several other special units such as drill teams, saddle clubs and antique cars.

(AP) —The U.N. General Assembly vot-! ed new condemnation of South Africa’s white supremacy laws Tuesday night but ruled out punitive boycotts or possible expulsion from the United Nations at this time Asian African efforts to call for harsh trade and iipomatic penalties that would isolate South Africa, as well as a move to ask the Security Council to expel South Africa, failed to get the j two-thirds majority needed for approval. Th* United States, Britain. France and other nations accused of Colonialism by the Communist and Asian-African nations voted | with the majority in a 97-2 ballot that denounced the apartheid policy and appealed anew to South Africa to change it. The Security Council shelved Cuba’s complaint against the stationing of U.S. warships off the Dominican Republic as a show of support for President Joaquin Ba-aguer. No member of the ll na-council, including the Soviet Union was willing to back up Cuba’s charges with a formal resolution. The United States and the Soviet Union launched a new round of private talks in an attempt to break the deadlock on resumption of disarmament negotiations.

Carden City Telegram Vol. 33 GARDEN CITY, KANSAS, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 29, 1961 30 Pages—3 Sections No. 24 Er.os Orbits The Earth Post Office on West Considers Mail Early' Drive! Making Berlin Plan to Reds A “Mail Early for Christmas” campaign is being undertaken by Lester Harp, Garden City postmaster. Post office facilities will be expanded and extra help provided during the Christmas rush which isn’t expected to start until Dec. IO. Although the new post office building is near completion, Harp said he did not intend to use it unless it was needed to store mail in the event of an overflow at the old building. Harp said residents should have packages in the mail by School Land Hearing Set A hearing concerning the rezoning of sdiool-ow tied property on Main will be at IO a m. Thursday in the City Hall. The hearing will be before the Metropolitan Area Planmng Com- j mission. Under consideration will be the rezoning of the block long, 180 feet deep area between Hackberry and Hazel and east of the Ben Grimsley Gymnasium. An option to purchase the property from the school board has been signed by the Ideal Food Stores which plans to build a new supermarket on the site. The site presently is zoned as U-2 residential, and the change would be to U-4 or business. The City Commission called for the rezoning hearing on its own motion. There are no buildings on the property at the present time. It has been used as an outdoor physical education area for the junior high school. Proceeds from I the sale would be used to obtain additional land at the new junior I high site for outdoor or playground use. Dec. 17, to insure delivery before Christmas. Christmas cards mailed after Dec. 18 should be sent air mail and any packages sent overseas should also be sent via air mail as Nov. 20 was the deadline. The postmaster added that poorly wrapped packages tend to break open, despite careful handling and frequently names and addresses are incomplete or cannot be read at all. Strong cartons, wrapped in heavy brown paper and tied with a sturdy cord are most desirable for mailing. Packages should be marked “fragile” or “handle with care” if they contain break able gifts. The sender should put' the name and address (rf the recipient inside every package to insure delivery in case labels come off. The use of 4-cent stamps on Christmas cards aids post office workers too. The sender’s return name and address should appear on the envelope so that it may be forwarded in the event of a change of address, or if undeliverable, returned to the sender. Christmas cards mailed with 3-eent stamps are sent to the dead letter office if not delivered at the address on the envelope. Harp said resident* should put zone numbers with addresses when they are known to speed delivery and aid post office help in sorting the mail. Persons sending articles of unusual size or bulk should check with the post office before attempting to mail them as there are limits on size and weight of packages, depending on where they are mailed from.

Recalled Military to Be Released Within Less then Yeor, JFK Soys By WHiTNEY SHOEMAKER WASHINGTON (AP) — President Kennedy today told men called into military service they may get out of uniform within less than a year. Urging them not to grumble in the meantime, he said they provide the strength to spare the I United States a choice “between humiliation and a holocaust.” Somewhat heatedly, Kennedy took note at a news conference of newspaper stories reporting discomforts and possible shortcomings in equipment and training programs for reservists and National Guardsmen summoned to service as a result of the East-West crisis over Berlin. The President said his administration-contrary to some speculation — never intended to hold men called up for more than a year. TTie hope, he said, is to let them out before the end of the 12 month period for which they were originally ordered to service. Kennedy also observed that Congress approved the callup which the administration initiated last summer. Kennedy, in a clear attempt to bolster the morale of the reservists and guardsmen whose lives were disturbed by the muster of additional strength, said the soldier on duty in a “cold and windy camp” is rendering the same valuable service as an airplane on 15-minute alert with the Strategic Air Command. Kennedy said his administration had felt the nation lacked adequate conventional military strength. He said the armed forces were increased—“to prevent a war, not to fight a war.” “We want to have a choice between humiliation and holocaust,” Kennedy said with reference to a middle ground between surrender and the devastation of nuclar war. Kennedy declared once again that this country wants to negotiate a peaceful settlement of East-West issues “but does not intend to surrender.” He said a key point in any future negotiations with the Soviet Union will be the question of internationalization of the administration of the autobahn land route to Berlin. Kennedy, in reply to questions about the show of U.S. force off the Dominican Republic last week, said the United States would be most concerned” if one country in this hemisphere moved against another with force. The President had been asked if the United States was prepared to use force to thwart any attempt by the regime of Fidel Castro in Cuba, for instance, to overthrow another government. He said the United States would be concerned about aggression “particularly if its source” were the Castro regime. Kennedy departed from his usual news conference pattern by inviting questions at the outset without making official announcements with which he customarily has opened his meetings with newsmen. WASHINGTON (AP) - The Western powers are considering making proposals to the Soviet Union early next year for a settlement of the Berlin crisis. They w ill be designed to strengthen the security of West Berlin against Communist pressures and to assure free access to the city from West Germany. The proposals may embrace a plan for creation of an internationally controlled highway corridor between West Berlin and West Germany as suggested by Pre*! dent Kennedy in an interview published Tuesday in the Soviet Union. The prospective Western plan for Berlin, coupled with new t..- j ploratory talks with the Soviet government, is expected by authorities here to lead an East- ! West foreign ministers conference in a few months. But U.S. officials say the nego tiations thus foreseen will be pro longed and extremely difficult and no compromise solution of the Berlin dispute is in sight. The Kennedy interview with Alexei Adzhubei, editor of the Soviet government newspaper Izves-tia and son-in-law of Prmier Khrushchev, dramatically illustrated the complete conflict of aims on Berlin issues with which the Soviet Union and the West are approaching negotiations. The conflict of aims developed in what was really an exchange of views between Adzhubei and Kennedy. Adzhubei is believed here to have chosen this technique so that when the full record of the interview was published in Izvestia its readers were presented with the Soviet as well as the Western viewpoint. Kennedysaid that the desire of the Western powers is to maintain “a very limited number” of U.S., British and French troops in West Berlin and “to have, for example, an international administration on the Autobahn (German superhighway) so that goods and people can move freely in and out.” New Cold Front Expected TOPEKA (AP) — Temperatures warmed slowly in Kansas today but a new surge of cold air is due to send them downward again by Thursday. Overnight lows ranged from 23 degrees at Topeka to 36 at Salina and highs today were expected to be in the 40s with some points near 50. Highs Tuesday were from 36 at Dodge City to 48 at Goodland. There was still considerable cloudiness in central and southwestern Kansas with fog in some areas. The new cold front may bring some snow flurries, the Weather Bureau warned. Astrochimp Parachutes Safely into Atlantic CAPE CANAVERAL, Fin. (AP) — Space chimp Enos, his intended three-orbit trip cut to two because of trouble with capsule systems, parachuted safely into the Atlantic 500 miles aouhteast of Bermuda today.
