The American equipment mostly mountain artil- lery is being flown from Turkey. Turkey agreed to release the arms being provided by the Unit- ed States after Nehru appealed to President Kennedy for military aid. Three- days after Nehru asked for American weapons, the Indian government issued its first direct acknowledgement of the coming arms assistance. Grateful To U. S. "We are grateful for the U.S. government's sympathy and sup- port and their offer to help us in the procurement of supplies re- quired for our defense a spokesman said. Terms on which the American arms are being supplied have yet to be arranged. The same goes for weapons sent by Britain and com- ing from Canada. Nehru is personally handling these arrangements as well as overseeing the battlefront. Lull Sets In A lull has set in along the Him- alayan frontier, but an official spokesman reported Red Chinese mortar fire at Indian patrols around Jang, a village five miles east of the monastery town of Towang captured last week by the Communists. Indian artillery fire had been reported in this area earlier but there was no artillery reply to the Red Chinese bombardment today. The Communist gunfire dealt no casualties among Indians at Jang, -where they are building up for a possible battle on the nearby 940-foot-high Se Pass. A lull in the shooting along the frontier was believed only tem- porary. Both Sides Prepare Both sides were preparing for a new round of fighting along the Himalayan border. The Chinese are expected to resume the drives that have carried them into India at 13 points since they attacked Oct. 20. All New Delhi newspapers today hailed Prime Minister Nehru's de- motion of Defense Minister V! K, Krishna Menon, and new demands were made that Menon be ousted from the Cabinet entirely. Nehru, 72, took over the Defense Ministry himself Wednesday and demoted Menon, his. closest associate, to the secondary post of minister of defense production. Paper Wonders The Hindustan Times, which supports Nehru's Congress party, said: "The division of the defense portfolio between Nehru and Men; on makes neither military nor po: litical sense." Some new British weapons al- ready have arrived in India, and the first shipment of U.S. arms was to be flown in today or Fri- day. Nehru met with his military commanders today for the first time in his new capacity as de- fense minister. An official spokes- man said they exchanged views on the war. Nehru actually had shoved Merwn into the background ever since the border fighting started and had been dealing di- rectly with the military leaders. Official sources said Menon, who had come under increasing fire for failing to prepare ade- quate Indian defenses, would have no role in procuring arms from the United States, Britain or Ca- nada. American officials have long re- sented Menon's outspoken criti- cism of U.S. policies and his avowed friendliness with the Com- munist-bloc nations.

Blasts 4th Aerial Bomb HONOLULU (AP) fireball flashed across the Pacific today as the United States set off its fourth high-altitude nuclear device in eight attempts above tiny Johnston Island. A brilliant series of rainbow col- ors, visible here 750 miles from the test area, lighted the skies for almost a minute before blending into the darkness. The fireball wasn't expected to be visible here and observers were surprised by the sudden bril- liance of the sky. The' flash of last Friday's blast barely was visible through the clouds. The device, sent aloft an esti- mated 30 to 40 miles Wednesday night by a Thor booster, packed a nuclear punch in the submegaton range, equivalent to between 000 and a million tons of TNT. Joint Task Force 8 officials had held up the shot for nearly.four hours because of apparent techni- cal difficulties. Four earlier attempts to deto- nate nuclear devices above Johns- ton fizzled because of malfunc- tions in the Thor missile tracking system. Another high-altitude, low-yield test is planned for Saturday, pos- sibly the concluding shot in the current test series that began last April 25._________ Jews to attain a high place in Soviet science: He was awarded the physics prize for "his pioneering' theories for condensed matter, especially liquid helium." are.do.ybts in Moscow he ever will recover -fully. and Perutz have worked together at the. newly started laboratory -of -molecular this of British colleagues, the Braggf., 50 years ago.

(AP) Fidel Castro's annoyance over being passed by Soviet Premier Khrushchev caused the Cu- ban leader to reject U. N. inspection of Soviet missile removal, a high U. N. source said today. The source said that Cas- tro was aggrieved because Khrushchev'- had not con- sulted him before agreeing with President' Kennedy that U. N. inspectors could be sent to Cuba to verify the dismantling of Soviet missiles. These disclosures came as Act- ing Secretary-General U Thant plunged into a new series of diplo- matic talks in an effort to get the Cuban peace effort back on the track. Informed sources said Castro had given him an outright rejec- tion at their first meeting in.Ha- vana Tuesday, but had been much more agreeable on Wednesday. The belief was expressed in high U.N. circles that Castro might accept the'U.N. inspection plan after his present mood pass- research on hemoglobin since large protein'molecules for which 1937. the prize has now been awarded) The winners named today will were made at the Cavendish lab- oratory at Cambridge with the receive their awards along with others previously named litera- aid of X ray diffraction, a ph'oto- j ture and Stockholm graphic optical method which be-', on Dec. 10.

Diplomatic informants in-Wash- ington said Castro'had .delivered a bitter tirade in his talks with Thant and accused Khrushchev of having sold him down the river. A spokesman for Thant .said this was "completely unfounded." The spokesman also denied Washing- ton reports saying Thant had had a most unpleasant.trip to Cuba. The secretary-general's first ap- pointment today was with the cur- rent president of the .Security Council, Mahmoud Riad of the United Arab Republic and with Ghana's council Delegate Alex Quaison-Sackey. He also had appointments with Cuba's newly appointed U.N. del- egate, Carlos Lechuga, who flew back from Havana Wednesday night. Lechuga arranged to pre- sent his credentials, but it was possible also that he and Thant would deal with the Cuban situa- tion. U.S. Ambassador- Adlai E. Ste- venson 'had an afternoon appoint- ment to see Thant. Thant said on his return from Havana Wednesday night he had been reliably informed the bases would be- dismantled by Friday and the Soviet equipment shipped out .-of Cuba soon afterward. But Thant said nothing about ar- rangements for U.N. verification of the Soviet withdrawal, the pur- pose of his trip. This omission, plus the return 'with him of the military aides he .had taken as a nucleus of the inspection group, was taken as evidence Castro would not agree to the foreign in- spection. The United' States announced that it was resuming its naval blockade of arms shipments' to Cuba at dawn today and that aeri- al surveillance of the missile sites also was being resumed. Both had been suspended during Thant's two-day peacemaking visit to Cuba. Soviet First Deputy Premier Anastas-I. Mikoyan left Moscow early today for talks with the Cuban prime minister. Western observers in the Soviet capital in- terpreted'.his sudden visit as an attempt to bring Castro into line with the Kennedy Khrushchev (Continued on Page Two) Navy Clamps Blockade Back Down After Thant Departs WASHINGTON (AP) U.S. Navy ships resumed their arms blockade of Cuba at daybreak to- day and air surveillance was or- dered renewed after Fidel Castro evidently refused to agree to U.N. inspection of Soviet missile with- drawals. Washington officials probably will want to verify with aerial photos a report by U Thant, act- ing secretary-general, that all So- viet missiles would be taken down by Friday and removed1 from Cuba soon Thant said he was reliably informed of this Wednesday in Havana. The blockade, suspended during two days of evidently fruitless ne- gotiations between Thant and Fi- del Castro, was due to go back into force at dawn. Its assignment, as before, is to keep additional of- fensive weapons out of Cuba. The White House announced this Wednesday night after President Kennedy had reviewed the situa-1 Rudolf Anderson Jr., 35, of Green- tion with his .top level National ville, S.C. press secretary, said U.S. photo reconnaissance planes would go k into action "in the absence of effective U.N. arrangements" with Castro for supervising the missile base dismantling promised y the Soviet Union. Salinger left vague just when surveillance will start again after the two-day break. Apparently this was intended to avoid tipping off Cuban antiaircraft batteries which fired on unarmed U.S. reconnais- sance planes at the height of the crisis weekend. The United States has acknowl- edged losing one plane over.

Republicans wondered out loud if tfiere really was reason to cheer. The key statistics released by the Labor Department on Wednes- day are these: Employment, rising seasonally, increased from September to record for Octo- ber; jobless total declined by more than was expected, to lowest monthly unemployment figure since 1959; and The seasonally adjusted idle rate dropped from the 5.8 per cent registered in August and. Septem- ber to 5.5 per cent. This meant 55 of able and willing workers coundn't find jobs last month. Secretary of Labor W. Willard Wirtz said in a statement that the job situation, was substantially im- proved over that faced by Presi- dent Kennedy when he took office in January 1961. Wirtz acknowledged that there .still are far too many unemployed and that much remains to be done if the economy is to operate at its full potential. He said, how- ever, the nation's economy is moving ahead once again. The-Republican National Com- mittee took issue with that view. I nits own the GOP said it is difficult to see how the ad- ministration "finds cause for re- joicing." "With a current 5.5 per cent un- employment the committee said, "the number of jobless pie is now exactly what it was in September 1960, when Mr, Ken- nedy as a candidate was telling the voters how bad things were and promising to bring unemploy- ment down to 4 per cent" In September 1960, the idle rate was 5.7 per cent and were reported unemployed.

University officials vowed swift disciplinary action against students involved. The sudden action followed the wounding of a military policeman by a firecracker, apparently tossed from a window of Lester Hall-adjoining Baxter Hall where James H. Meredith is housed. Meredith, 29, begins his second month of classes today as the first Negro ever knowingly ad- mitted- to the 114-vear-old univer- sity. He studied in relative; silence Wednesday night.

And, said Sen. Barry Goldwater of Arizona and Rep. Bob Wilson of California, the President also should "clarify for the American people" whether his agreement with Soviet Premier Khrushchev cancels "an invasion which al- ready had 'been planned, as re- ported in some newspapers, and which could have eliminated com- munism completely from Cuba." Goldwater, chairman of the Sen- ate Republican Campaign Com- mittee, and Wilson, chairman of the GOP House Campaign Com- mittee, raised eight points in con- nection with the proposed.agree- ment "Since Mr. Kennedy canceled his Thursday news conference- eliminating the possibility of the press asking some of these trou- blesome believe it vital to the security of the country that they be asked and answered at Goldwater and Wilson said in a joint statement The eight points the two Repub- licans said Kennedy should clarify are these: Does the no-invasion pledge constitute an abandonment of Cuba to the Communists and the perpetuation of a Red base for espionage, sabotage and propa- ganda incursions throughout the rest of Latin America? Docs the agreement super- sede the Organization of American States'accord reached at Punta 'del Este, Uruguay, iast January, which urges member states to take-' whatever steps are neces- sary, including force, to repel sub- version of their'countries? Does this assurance to Khrushchev mean :that we have junked the Monroe Doctrine? Are the Cubans who fled to this country from Castro's ter- rorism and who so long have lived in the hope of eventually lib- erating their homeland to be abandoned? Did the agreement with Khrushchev force a cancellation, of .an -invasion which already had been planned, as. reported in some newspapers, and which could have eliminated communism complete- ly from Cuba? Does the agreement with Khrushchev mean that the to Soviet 'technicians' and other military personnel will be allowed to remain in Cuba and continue to direct that nation's affairs? Does the agreement allow for completion "of the so-called 'fishing- port" which Moscow is building in Cuba and which many experts have 'said would, in fact, be a base for Soviet missile-cany- ing submarines Does the agreement call for the removal from Cuba of such offensive weapons as the 12 MIG supersonic fighter-bombers now on the island and .the bases under -construction for their use" Troops Dig In Along Shores At Key West KEY WEST, Fla. can troops strung barbed wire barricades along a portion of the Key West shore facing Havana 90 miles away and apppeared today to be digg'ing in for an extended stay. Military installations, rushed here during the Cuban crisis, were at the alert, while patroling by armed plaiies continued around the clock. Military equipment and some fresh troops continued to arrive. Machine-gun emplacements on the beach, behind the barbed wire, were piled with sandbags..

The airstrip at Marathon, about midway up the keys, appeared al- most deserted, in contrast to the Boca Chica Naval Air Station near here, where the sun glints off rows -of fighter- jets rushed here for'the emergency.
