Kennedy Sees Delay In Berlin Administration Now Thinks Khrushchev Will Wait A While WASHINGTON The Kennedy admimstra- tion appears to be revising its estimates of the Soviet timetable for a shodwdown with the Western powers over Berlin. The period of maximum danger .is now expected to come early next year rather than before Christmas, How the situation actual- ly develops .will be deter- mined in part by Soviet Premier Khrushchev's de- cision on whether to .visit the United Nations and have a Berlin crisis confer- ence with President Ken- nedy in the next few weeks. Administration policy makers said Saturday that however the timing develops they are more than ever convinced by last week's diplomatic developments'! that the dangers of U.S.-Sovietj conflict arc not diminishing .andj that there is no prospect in the predictable future of an East-West accord on West Berlin's future. All Show Concern President Kennedy, Secretary of State Dean Rusk and other admin istration spokesmen have been ex- pressing grave concern over: the Berlin situation for several weeks: Officials say privately that their primary concern is to make Khrushchev understand there will be no Western concessions on vi- tal interests in Berlin even if the West has to fight to protect those interests. At the same time some officials privately agree that a related pur- pose of the administration's cam- paign is to emphasize .to the Amer- ican people that in the. adminis- tration's view Berlin 'presents, a far greater danger than the Com- No .Change. Coming Administration 'authorities insist that the line will not change after the Nov. 6 election. public emphasis on toughness may greater immediately, after the elections because West.

The Indian government said the Chinese threw; one, possibly two divisions into an attack on Indian positions along a 15-mile front two miles up on the snow-covered Himalayas on India's .northeast frontier.. Three Indian outposts were'reported captured'as the Chinese drove south across the Nam Kha Kechilang River. Indian troops retreated to positions as much as four miles south of the line .India claims as its borders. India had maintained outposts within a miles of that .line. On the other fighting front, in the Chip Chap Valley of Ladakh 900 miles to the northwest, Indian soldiers fell back from one and possibly a second outpost before the Chinese onslaught.

But he hasn't used as strong terms in talking about Republican gubernatorial nominee Henry Bell- mon as he has in talking against Crawford in the Senate race. "This not too surprising. It is easier for.Kerr to take a strong stand in a race involving his col- league and it is easier for him to swing roundhouses at a man who has opposed him in a previous race.

He has a-30-. minute television speech lined up for night to plug the en- tire Democratic ticket. This .show-reportedly is. being paid for by the state Democratic Party.
