RYAN AP Special Correspondent Cuba has become an ex- pensive and dangerous toy for the Kremlin. It is expensive because the chances are that care- fully laid Soviet plans to use the Caribbean island as a pawn on the cold war chessboard have been thrown into confusion by the U. S. blockade. Indeed, the whole world Communist timetable may have been thrown out of kilter It is dangerous because, con- ceivably, it could start a nuclear that the present Com- munist party leadership in the Kremlin at any rate, appears to want to avoid. Thus, the Russians have been careful on at least one point: the finger on the trigger is not Cuban but Russian. In itself, this has been a form of insurance against an unwanted accident. It would be entirely out of character for the Russians to permit the Castro regime to have authority over missile bases. But since the Russian finger Is on the trigger, the United 'State has told the Russians they, a present-day bosses of the Cuban nation, are responsible for an; aggressive action from that direc tion against any Western Hemis phere area. Cuba has been the center 6 hopeful Soviet planning since 1960 Khrushchev, under -fire from Red Chinese and even from quar ters within his home party for de- lays in advancing the world revo- lution, probably found the Cuba buildup idea to have attractive points.

Now it is Latta's turn to study Metropoli- tan Area Planning and Zoning. A meeting is slated next Tues- day evening at p.m. in the School. School officials and lead- ers of the community have work- ed in cooperation with the Master Planning Committee of the Ada Chamber of Commerce to arrange the meeting. Present for the meeting will be members of the master planning committee, members of the Met- ropolitan Area Planning and Zon- ing Commission and Bob Lehr, urban .planner. The meeting is not a public hearing. It is an educational af- fair, designed to better acquaint residents of the Latta area with the program. After brief presenta- tions of what it is and how it af- fects residents, the meeting will be thrown open for a question and answer period. On Tuesday of this week, a sim- ilar meeting was held at Ahloso. It was well received and well at- tended. More than 100 people packed the lunchroom at the school for that meeting. It is hoped that other such meetings can be held, possibly at Homer or at any other point out- side the corporate limits of Ada in the affected area where people desire to learn and discuss Metro- politan Area Planning and Zon- ing.

Outnumbered and outgunned Indian troops were putting up stiffer resistance after a week of leavy fighting, a Defense Min- stry. spokesman said, but two more Indian positions were over- whelmed. Prime Minister Nehru, whose [overnment 'has proclaimed a state of national emergency, told a delegation of 45 members of his Congress party, India is making arrangements to match Commu- nist firepower with arms from abroad. He said 'he had written to all nations, except South Africa and Portugal with whom India has no diplomatic relations, explaining lis refusal to enter cease-fice negotiations with the Red Chinese unless they pull back to their po- sitions of Sept. 8. One such letter went to the Soviet Union. Premier Khrush- chev is' believed here to have irompted the Red Chinese to pro- >ose ceasefire talks and a nile pullback by both sides from iresent .positions.. Nehru declined to name the na- ions from which India expects weapons aid. He said India was making no distinction between Dast and .West. But it was as- umed here that the United States and Britain would be the chief uppliers.

Prayer To Surface As Americans React To Crisis By SAW. PETT AP Newrfeaturea Writer In a Montana bar called the Capri Lounge, on a Helena street called "Last Chance all .the customers, all the help, even the two-man combo, fell silent. Nobody stopped drinking; Ev- erybody stopped talking. The President of the United States was on television announcing a blockade of Cuba. The speech ended and some customers polished off their drinks and got up to go. Now suddenly, on this Monday night, Oct. 22, 1962, in J. Mont., and in Rye, N.Y., in San Francisco, Calif., and in Key West, in Boston, Mass., and in Oxford, Miss., the simple ev- eryday .word, goodbye, grew, to the size of a huge boulder in the road, to be walked around, climbed over or laughed at nerv- ously in the hope its new shading would go away.
