By JOHN M. HIGHTOWER WASHINGTON IAP) Soviet Premier Khrushchev may have ordered construction of "missile bases in Cuba as parl of a Krem- lin plot to put President Kennedy under a surprise threat of nuclear war in an attempt to force U. S. concessions on Berlin. This possible strategic purpose for the sudden and unexplained installation of Soviet nuclear mis- siles 90. miles from the United Slates is being given serious con- sideration in official quarters here. tt is one of the reasons why authorities are sticking grimly to their conviction that while the first phase of (he Cuban crisis has been on the naval blockade front a second and po- tentially far more serious phase is yet to come. As lo the nature of the second phase there are-two possibilities in speculation. One is that Khru the White House Moscow Radio announced the Soviet Union's slralegic rocket troops have been ordered on a state of increased combat readi- ness. Krasnaya Zveida (Red Ihe defense ministry newspaper, said: "The unprecedented aggres- sive actions of U.S. ruling circles toward Ihe Cuban republic and other slates could not hut provoke retaliatory measures from the So viet government." Premier Khrushchev's condi- tional acceptance of Tbanl's ne- gotiation proposal was seen by Western dip'.omals in Moscow as preparation for him to appear before Ibe United Nations. Tiiey said he also apparently had di- rected Soviet ships carrying arms to lurn hack from Cuba. U.S. strategists believed the cli- max of (he crisis was slill lo come wild Ihe issue up lo the Kremlin whether Ihe solution would be military or peaceful. As Ihe peace efforls focused on the United Nations, demonslra- lions for and againsl the U.S, blockade continued around (he world. Western Europe's newspapers greeted wilh relief the willingness of the United Stales and the So- viet Union to talk. But many feared the crisis may smoulder (or weeks. Than! announced he would hold separate Inlks wilh (he United States, the Soviet Union and Cnba, beginning loday with U.S. Ambassador Adlai E. StcvcnW Stevenson Indicated to newsmen he would insist on proof (hat Soviet arms shipments lo Cuba will cease and Ihe Soviets will hnll Ihe crcclion of missile bases in Cuba i[ (he Ibree nalions agree (o meet at Ihe negotiating table, Wintry Weather Moves Into East By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Midwintry snow and cold poured double trouble on seclions of the Northeast today. Snow reached a depth of 8 inches in Ghent, near Akron, Ohio 6 inches in Twinsburg; and 2 to 4 inches in some of Cleveland's suburbs. U.S. 21, the main route between Cleveland and Akron, became blocked at a.m. wilh between and vehicles on Ibe road. Snow removal equipment was trapped in the snarl. Five Iractor-trailers jackknifed in a 25-mile-long traffic tieup. Several schools closed. With winter almost two months away on the calendar, snow in Michigan measured 11 inches in Cassopolis, 8, in Van Buren and Paw Paw, and 4 in Allegan. Up to fi inches of snow accu- mulated in mountain sectors of Pennsylvania. Snow fell in many parts of New England. U was light in most districts, but amounted to about inches in Worcester, Mass. Light snow blended with wilh lemperatures close to freez- ing in northern New Jersey. New York City had its first snowfall of Ihe eighth time on record lhat snow fell in October there. "One of the coldest outbreaks of polar air ever seen in Octo- that's Ihe way the Weather Bureau described il shattered many long standing temperature records east of the Mississippi River. The autumn freeze reached down lo the, middle of Gulf Coast stales. Among new lows for (he dale were 19 above zero in Molinc and Peoria, 111., 25 in Pittsburg, 23 in Columbus, Ohio, and 33 at the Charleston, S.C.; Airport. Minima elsewhere included: Lone Rock and Park Falls Wis II, International Falls, Minn., la' Cincinnati 19 and Birmingham' Ala., 30. There was an indication of some relief from Ihe cold in the- .Mid- west. Temperatures moderated in (he Plains states as Ihe cold air mass, fanned hy southerly winds, shchev is intent on forcing showdown' with the West over Berlin and may go through with his main plan in spile of the dis- closure of Ihe Cuban missile buildup. The oilier is that the U.S. government is determined that Ihe missiles must be removed from Cuba and the bases demol ished. The for a frantic diplomatic search peaceful way out of the crisis, centered at Ihe United Na- lions, is so far liltle more than a lull in the diplomatic storm which broke over Ihe world Mon- day night. A defense spokesman reports that Soviet missilemen and mili- tary of whom Ihere are an estimated on the Caribbean are still work- ing at top speed to complcle Ihe 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 lo the introduction of more missiles inlo the island but the U.S. aclion has not evidently put a halt to Ihe Soviet activities already under way Ihere.
