Howard' Edmondson. Highway Commission will be replaced after he takes office Jan. 14. Bellmon said he had no criti- cism of the commission for its approval Wednesday of an million road letting for February month after he becomes governor. But he said -commis- sioners took the action without consulting him and do not seem to be cooperating with the new Earlier Bellmon said -highway commissioners who supported Democrat W. P. Bill Atkinson in the gubernatorial.campaign must convince him of a desire to co- operate or make way for com- missioners who will. Bellmon was'asked by newsmen today about the commission's pro- posed letting, .which brings to million the amount of road funds it is tying up for .December, Jan- uary and February lettings. He said there must be continuity in .the road program and he re- alizes planning for initial lettings of a new administration must be done in advance.' "But I believe it would be wise to apprise the new governor of what they are he' said. Asked by newsmen about his former statement that commis- sioners must show a spirit of co- operation, he said "I don't' be- lieve you would exactly call this cooperation." No Money's Left For Bellmon, See Page Ten Commenting on the big lettings, Bellmon said: "This matter will be checked into after the inaugur- ation. If there is any .criticism, to be made, we'll make it then. They are still running the show." He was questioned at length on this 'subject during 'a morning press conference. -Several times he remarked the Edmondson ad- ministration still is in office, and has a right to take what action it deems proper. "I don't believe it helps the state for me to bellyache about what is going he Earh'er Bellmon said he expects some of the commissioners will be replaced and some will be permit- ted-to continue in-.office.

Prime Minister Nehru told Par- liament known' Indian casualties are 197 dead, 291 wounded in bat- tle and'361 frostbite cases. The Communists claimed they held 927 Indians before launching their last big offensive but have given no further figures on pris- oners. On the diplomatic 'front. Soviet Ambassador I. A. Benediktov had a lengthy meeting with Nehru. No communique was issued on their talks. Another blow was dealt the prestige and power of the former defense V.. K. .Krishna Menon. A delayed announcement disclosed he has been dropped from the planning commission, a sort of super government that di- rects Indian economic develop- _ ment indirectly. Menon, long-time crony of Neh- ru, was forced out of the Cabinet political and public" pressure for failing to adequately prepare India's defenses during the years of growing Chinese threats along the border.

President Tightens Squeeze Around Cuba WASHINGTON Kennedy has decided to impose penalties on non-Communist ship- ping engaged in trade with Cuba, chiefly by denying American1 car- goes to the vessels. New regulations are expected to be put into effect in about.two weeks. The President's move, disclosed Wednesday at a news conference, involves reviving plans that were shelved when the Cuban crisis broke in October. Thus, the United States is re- verting to its pre-crisis policy of putting an increasingly tight eco- nomic squeeze on the Castro re- gime in Cuba and, at' the same time, making the cost of Soviet support for that regime as high as possible.. Kennedy also' made two other major' points about'the Cuban situation: 1. He hopes that negotiations 'going on between U.S. and-Soviet Representatives in New York "will come to some conclusion in the net too distant future." Meanwhile the United'States intends'to main- tain its vigilance against-the re- introduction Soviet offensive weapons into the island. This was the substance of the President's reaction to Soviet Premier Khrushchev's speech in Moscow Wednesday .claiming Soviet poli- cy, had been victorious in Cuba. 2. It -is the "best judgment" of the U.S. government that Soviet nuclear missiles and .jet bombers "huve- been removed-from Cuba" but "these things are never 100 per cent" certain. The United States is still insisting., on Direct verification of the. removal of the weapons' and "on' safeguards against their re-introduction. British Chase Remnants Of Brunei Rebels LABUAN, North Borneo- British troops pushed out from regained towns in Brunei and northwest Sarawak today chasing rebel, bands seeking tefuge'.' in dense 'jungles and swamps.

Not much warmer, but warmer. The thermometer dipped "only" to 19 'degrees last night. Still cold enough to freeze your ears off, this nevertheless marks a warm- ing trend over the previous day, when the mercury took a nosedive down to the 10 degree mark. Weathermen forecast a slight warming today, evidenced by a reading of 23 degrees at 7 a.m., only slightly chillier than the high of 25 marked yesterday. Skies still were clear, little wind is blowing and Adans generally became aware of the extreme cold only when they .'stood still too long in one place outside. Above Freezing? The forecast indicated a slight thaw across the state, and it ap- peared possible Adans might get to venture out in weather that is above freezing for the first'time in three days.
