HIGHTOWER WASHINGTON (AP) Premier Khrushchev has committed Soviet prestige to the defense of commu- nism in Cuba so heavily that U.S. officials are becoming concerned over the grave danger of a serious miscal- culation on his part. The apprehension is simi- lar to that felt among lead- ers of the Kennedy admin- istration about Khrush- chev's estimate of U.S. in- tentions in West Berlin. The risk of war, as1 measured by Washington officials, rests to a great extent on Khrushchev's judgment of how the United States will react to future threats and We're Upset In New York next week, Secre-[ tary of State Dean Rusk is ex- pected to try to impress on cold war foes and allies alike that the United States is deeply upset, angry, even outraged about the buildup of Communist power backed by Soviet arms in Cuba.

In his new capacity, Thompson will be available to both the sec- retary of state and the President for special assignments, White House press secretary Pierre Sal- inger said.

Gen. Bernardino Labayru, army chief of staff and co-leader of the loyalist stand against pro-Guido rebels, was reportedly placed un- der arrest. Gen. Juan Carlos Lorio, the other anti-Guido leader, was said to have fled the capital; Forces Surrender Anti-Guido forces surrendered after Argentine air force jets strafed and bombed their posi- tions in a city park. Other troops retreated in the face of a tank assault by pro-Guido forces on Constitution Plaza in the heart of the city. Many casualities were reported in the fighting during the crisp spring afternoon but no one, in the confusion, could estimate them. Lorio-Labayru forces were re- ported either surrendering or re- fusing to fight in the face of over- whelming odds. They held only two positions in the capital by the .War Secre- tariat-Building itself and in Avel- landea Park.

"Each individual's problem is different." Floyd's' aim is, as much as possible, to work but these prob- lems "from the inside." That is, he tries first to. clarify the prob- lem for the individual himself, by getting his own definition of the problem and what he thinks can and should be done about it.
