Abilene Reporter-News, The (Newspaper) - October 26, 1962, Abilene, Texas "WITHOUT OR WITH OFFENSE TO FRIENDS OR FOES W E SKETCH YOUR WORLD EXACTLY AS IT t E96T OT 82NDYEAR.NO. 132 PAGE Almost everybody, but not quite all, in Abilene has been trying to make welcome the Lakewood, Colo., exchange stu- dents now visiting with Cooper High Schoolers. The exception to the rule is some unknown person who prob- ably thought he was stealing from a fellow Abilenian when he took a large "tote" bag out of a car parked downtown this week. Sue Harr, Lakewooder who is guest this week of Mickey Bonds and her parents, the Nor- man Bonds of 1261 Beechwood, "lost" such a purse. The high schoolers can't be sure where, but it turned up missing while they were on a "progressive" dinner which took them about town and into the downtown area. Sue sus- pects she left it behind in the car at one stop. Missing along with the purse are various papers, Social Se- curity card, driver's license, auto registration, some cash and several travelers' checks. Sue stopped payment on the travelers' checks and found plenty of Abilenians who would cash her check for some more money. But she would like the return of her papers, at least. She can be located through the Bonds family or through Cooper High. The Texan's version of the English language is a source of amusement and amazement to some of our visitors and new- comers.

A new book, The Regional Vo- cabulary of Texas, on this topic will be published Nov. 5 by an ex-Abilenian, Dr. E. Bagby At- wood, University of Texas pro- lessor and a linguistic scientist. (Dr. Atwood. a recognized authority on vivid and varied Texanisms, is the son of a late Hardin Simmons professor, Dr. E. B. Atwood. and got part of his education at H-SU. He is the brother of Ldand Atwood, board chairman of North Ameri- can Aviation who, incidentally, was pictured in a current Life Magazine as one of California's top figures.) Some good old Abilenese might be in the Atwood book. But there is one new colloquial- ism lately added to our lan- guage, colorful enough but too new, we imagine, to be includ- ed. "In the hole. The phrase has come to be meaningful in a special way lo- cally. "We'll come, if my husband gets out of the hole. "Dad will pay your allowance when he gets out of the hole. "Guess when he's in the hole he's safer than anywhere. "In the hole" means under- ground duty with an Atlas. Philharmonic concert goers got a bargain this week. Jim Isaacs, Philharmonic As- gociation president, confirms it. Back before the Van Cliburn piano contest at Fort Worth, Abi- lene Philharmonic Director Leo Scheer suggested, and the offi- cials agreed, that the local group sign a contract with the winner, whoever he or she might be. Abilene, Amarillo and another Texas town or so signed the "blind" contracts. They would pay the winner J600 for a con- cert. Young Ralph Votapek of Mil- waukee won and this week he played in Abilene. For While he is fulfilling these contracts, his agent is bus- ily signing him for other con- certs at prices, Isaacs has heard, up in the thousands of dollars.

(AP) President Kennedy agreed Thursday to preliminary talks proposed by acting Secretary-Cen- tral U on ending the U.S. Soviet crisis over Cuba. But Thant failed to win any U.S. commit- ment on a temporary end to the naval arms blockade on Cuba dur- ing such negotiations. Premier Khrushchev announced he would agree to a temporary simultaneous suspension of arms shipments and the blockade as proposed by Thant. Replies of the world leaders were read to the U.N. Security Council by U.S Ambassador Ad- lai E. Stevenson and Soviet Dep- uty Foreign Minister Valerian A. Zorin. Their speeches contained angry charges and countercharges. At one point Stevenson demand- ed an outright reply from Zorin on whether the Soviet Union had stationed, long and short range missiles in Cuba. He challenged Zorin to reply and when told by the Russians he would have to wait, Stevenson Soviet asserted: "I am ready to wait until hell freezes over Moving swiftly in view of the replies, Thant announced he would begin private negotiations with the parties concerned Friday morning. He said at the outset he would meet separately with the repre- sentatives of the United States, the Soviet Union and Cuba. The council agreed to suspend the debate indefinitely for the dur- ation of the negotiations. The meeting was adjourned at p.m. Kennedy made clear in the statement read to the council by Stevenson that the United States regarded the secret introduction of offensive weapons into Cuba as the No. l issue in the crisis. The President told Thant "the answer lies in the removal of such weapons." A White House official under- scored this by announcing in Washington that the Kennedy of- fer to explore possibilities of a peaceful settlement did not signal any suspension of the blockade. Kennedy merely took note that Thant "made certain suggestions and invited preliminary talks to determine whether satisfactory arrangements can be assured." He added that Stevenson "is ready to discuss promptly these arrangements with you." Zorin read the reply from Khrushchev in which the Soviet leader said he welcomed the sec- retary-general's initiative. Khrushchev said he understood Thant's concern "since the Soviet government also considers this situation as highly dangerous and requiring an immediate interfer- ence by the United Nations. "I am informing you that I agree with your proposal which meets the interests of peace." Stevenson was stung by charges from Zorin that Kennedy had failed to inform Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko in their talks in Washington a week ago that the United States had proof of Soviet offensive weapons in Cuba. "I'll tell you we were assembling the Stevenson told Zorin, who was en of presiding over the council as its October president. "We wanted to see how far a Soviet official could go in per- fidy." At another point Stevenson de- nied a contention by Zorin that the U.S. position had changed oh Cuba because the United lacked proof of its charges. "We have the proof and will show it to he said. "Let me say something else: These weapons must be taken out of Cuba." Then Stevenson displayed to the council pictures he said were tak- launching sites for interme- diate range missiles. "We won't look at your pic- Zorin said. "What's the value of these pictures? If you serious evidence you should have presented to the govern- ment whom you are accusing." As to Stevenson's challenge on whether the Soviet Union had sup- States plied long-range missiles to Cuba, Zorin said: "Our nuclear means are so pow- erful and the Soviet Union has such powerful delivery of these weapons that there is no need to seek further sites for them any- Sec DEBATE, Pg. 6-A, Col. 2 Late Cuban Activities At a Glance Here are Thursdav's major developments in the Cuban crisis: Premier Khrushchev notified U.N.

The Soviet shipments of atomic- capable missiles and planes to Cuba were regarded as part of a itepped-up global plan by Mos- cow that might have led to a Khrushchev appearance at the United Nations in the next few weeks with demands concerning Berlin and elsewhere. Holding to this interpretation, case Kennedy advisers felt that the speedy U.S. move for a showdown on Cuba upset Khrushchev's mas- ter plan.
