NEW YORK market investors tried to day to anticipate how Wai Street will react now and in weeks to come to the Cuban crisis. The market sagged on Mon day's uncertainty, held firmer after the President spelled out the U.S. position, then suddenly sank badly. The late selling rush Tuesday linked by analysts to talk o a possible clash between U.S. anc Soviet ships at the Cuban block- ade lines.

Other analysts cited additional factors, including the one that ac. cumulative weakness had left the market ill-equipped to cope with fresh bad news.

The cause of McKeel's concern was the fact that he had not worn a coat that day, but was instead clad in -slacks and a white shirt. Court protocol demands that judges and attorneys wear either coats or robes. It was a rather warm day and besides McKeel doesn't particularly like to wear a robe. So, he shopped around and final- ly approached attorney Leslie Younger. He talked Younger into lending him the' coat off his back. Clothed in Younger's coat, McKeel preceded to preside.

He ridiculed the Organization of American .States for its solid sup- port of the U.S. quarantine of Cuba. He called the organization's signal of any U. S. warship. Cuba's Fidel Castro saw the quarantine as an act of war and Moscow took a grave and angry view. For more than a year the ten- sion between the United States and Cuba had mounted.

Gromyko was reported today to have renewed the Communist demand that West- ern troops get out of Berlin and called for full recognition of East German sovereignty. The official East. German news agency ADN said Gromyko made the statements in a speech to a crowd in East Berlin after he toured the wall dividing the city. Standing on a truck as an im- provised platform, Gromyko pledged' that the Soviet Union would, never allow the "slightest violation of the sovereign rights" of East Germany, ADN said. Gromyko arrived Tuesday in East Berlin from New York and had talks with the Communist chief-, of East Germany, Walter Ulbricht, and Foreign Minister Lothar Bolz. The visit was an- nounced as a stopover on his way to Moscow. There have been fears in the West that the Soviet Union might make some move against West Berlin as retaliation for the quar- antine of Cuba. Soviet tanks, artillery and mo- torized units were observed on the move outside Berlin during the night, West Berlin police reported. They said travelers across East Germany saw Soviet units on the autobahn, the highway connecting Berlin with the West, the road from Berlin to Hamburg. The largest group was reported around a small town about 10 miles west of Berlin. Western sources said the. troops appeared to be units returning to bases from training exercises.
