Gromyko today in a White House meeting that foreshadows a Kennedy conference with Premier Khrushchev on the Berlin crisis next month. Khrushchev has, in effect, made known to Kennedy through Foy Kohler, the new U.S. ambassador to Mos- cow, that he is very interested in a face-to-face discussion of the Berlin dispute with the President. Kennedy has already decided to see Khrushchev if, as expected here, the Soviet premier goes through with the decision to visit the United States to attend the U.S. General Assembly. Gromyko, who came here from New York Wednesday, is due at the White House in late afternoon. After seeing Kennedy, he is scheduled to spend the evening with Secretary of State Dean Rusk a "working dinner" 2 Suffer injuries In Crash Two Stonewall women luckily escaped with their lives Wednes- day night when their car smashed into the Sandy Creek bridge west cf Ada. They were taken to Valley View Hospital at p.m., a few minutes after the collision. Their condition is listed as "fair" by a hospital spokesman. Injured were Mrs. llene Sea- burn, 37, and Mrs. Louise Kusler, 23. Mrs. Seaburn, a recent graduate 5n practical nursing at Valley View, suffered possible rib frac- tures. Mrs. Kusler sustained a broken leg. Highway Patrol Trooper Spike Mitchell.who investigated said.the vehicle; driven by Mrs. Seaburn, struck the right side of the east end of the steel bridge abutment. The front end of the car was shredded and judged a complete loss. An ambulance took Mrs. Kusler to Valley View immediately. Mrs. Seaburn refused to be taken to the hospital but insisted she be treated by a physician elsewhere. She was later admitted to the hospital. Mitchell said the driver appar- ently either lost control of the car when approaching the bridge or was driving too fast. JP Hears Three Cases Wednesday Three Adans were charged in JP court Wednesday. Cited for public drunkenness R. L. Chronister and Earnest Houndtree.

The White House session here follows by two days a Moscow conference between Khrushchev and Kohler. It was learned that Khrushchev indicated to the_new American envoy that he considers more discussions on the Berlin situation to be desirable. He also clearly indicated that he considers a personal talk between himself and Kennedy to be advisable. He's Relaxed While Khrushchev underscored his long-standing demand for withdrawal of U.S., British and French troops from West Berlin, the atmosphere of his conversa- tion with. Kohler was reported to have been easy and relaxed and devoid of any sense immediate crisis or imminent deadline. Koh- ler made a full report of the talk to Washington for the information of Kennedy, Rusk and their top advisers. Kennedy was expected to em- phasize strongly in his meeting with Gromyko that Khrushchev's insistence on removal of Western forces from Berlin is totally un- acceptable, and. that the Western powers are completely agreed on defending West Berlin and its military and civilian supply lines against any kind of Communist move against them. Wants Progress It was understood Kennedy planned also to make the point that continued U.S.-Soviet talks on the Berlin situation can be con- sidered useful only if nothing hap- pens in the meantime to change the basic situation on Berlin. Top U.S. officials actually see no prospect at the moment of reaching any kind of accord with the Soviets on West Berlin's fu- ture, but they are strongly in favor of continued exploratory discussions aimed at some under- standing which would reduce the tensions. West German Foreign Minister Gerhard Schroeder reflected this view when he left the White House Wednesday after a SO-minute meeting with the President, He declined to predict the results of a Kennedy-Khrushchev conference but said: "Talks on such prob- lems are better than fight." Schroeder wound up his Wash- ington discussions on allied strate- gy for meeting any new Berlin challenge by the Soviets with a statement that the President and he "find ourselves in agreement on the assessment of the Berlin ;ituation and on the method to be applied to meet the situation." Schroeder is returning to 'Bonn today to report to Chancellor Kon- rad Adenauer and to begin prepa- rations for Adenauer's trip here :o discuss Berlin issues personally with Kennedy on Nov. 7, the day after U.S. congressional elections.

Rescuers Give Up Hope That Miners Will Be Found Alive CARDIN rescue effort turned today into a grim recovery operation as dozens of volunteers lost hope of finding alive two min- ers trapped 250 feet underground by a zinc mine cave-in. Another miner, pinned by the crushing weight of a huge bould- er, was rescued alive and a fourth miner outraced plunging debris to escape harm in Wednesday's cave-in. Searchers said hours later they have lost hope of finding alive Jim France, 53, and William Wil- son, 43-year-old father of four. The cave-in involved the Velie Lion mine just outside this tiny northeastern Oklahoma town a few miles from the Kansas and Missouri borders.

During the two-hour give-and- take meeting, Cabot stated views seldom expressed publicly in Ilommunist-ruled Eastern Europe. It is believed one of the few times any American ambassador has seen able to speak to and answer questions face-to-face with-.ordi-i nary citizens behind the Iron Cur- tain. Cabot was invited to Radom, a manufacturing city of about 70 miles south of Warsaw, by the local Communist party pa- per and a discussion club, the lo- cal branch of a nationwide society that aims to inform the masses. He was the first Western diplo- mat, to appear at a meeting of the club after a long series of speak- ers from the Soviet Union and oth- er Communist countries. The local papers publicized his. appearance in advance and street posters said he would tell all about the United States. The cordial session ended with 20 seconds of applause for Cabot from 400 attentive Poles who over- flowed the small meeting hall.

It's Eighth Attempt To Make A Hit CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) A towering rocket thundered skyward today in an attempt to send the Ranger 5 spacecraft a quar- ter of a million miles to a landing on the moon. The mission of the gold- and-silver-plated spacecraft is to send back closeup tele- vision pictures of the moon's surface before landing the. first, active instrument pack- age. This would measure moon-quakes and meteor hits. If all goes well Ranger 5 will streak through space for 70 hours and reach the moon about mid- day Sunday. Postponed Twice The shot was postponed twice this week, first by technical trou- ble and then by the threat of Hur- ricane Ella. But the hurricane changed course and the launching was rescheduled. The Atlas-Agena B rocket, :02 feet tall and weighing nearly 150 tons, blasted away from Cape Ca- naveral at a.m. The huge booster lifted straight off its-pad. Within 10. seconds it vanished into a low-hanging cloud bank. If the inquisitive payload suc- ceeds on its trip, it will be the first of a long line of unmanned spacecraft intended to learn what the moon is like and locate suitable landing areas for American astronauts later in this decade. TV's Aboard Ranger 5 was equipped with a television camera and other de- vices to help unravel lunar mys- teries which have puzzled scien- tists and astronomers for centur- ies. It could answer such questions as: What does the moon look like close up? What are some of its surface components? Is it shaken by moonquakes, and pounded by meteorites? Is it a dustbowl, or does it have a rock-hard crust? The intended landing area was near the giant crater Copernicus just above the lunar equator on the left side of the moon as seen from earth. Here's Plan The flight plan .called for: A ground station at Goldstone, Calif., to send a radio signal 16 hours after' launching to fire a small spacecraft motor to point Ranger 5 on to a collision course with the moon. The payload to approach the moon Saturday morning and be- gin taking television pictures of the lunar landscape from a dis- tance of miles, transmitting one to earth every 13 seconds un- til it is within 15 miles, a period of approximately 35 minutes. A 92-pound instrument sphere to eject from the craft at the 15-mile altitude and be slowed by a brak- ing'rocket so it hits the moon at a speed no -greater than 150 miles an hour and survives. The main body of the space- craft to crash on the moon at miles an hour, destroying the television camera and two other experiments: a radar altim- eter to measure the moon's radar reflection properties1 and a gam- ma ray spectrometer to record radioactive characteristics of lu- nar rocks.
