(See story on Pg. 1-B) ____ Bombing Cuban Guns Possible By ELTON C. FAY AP Military Affairs Writer WASHINGTON (APi If Fidel Castro carries out his threat to attack U.S. reconnaissance planes jver Cuba, their defense could in- clude bombing of antiaircraft mis- sile bases. The major menace to the un- irmed photo planes over Cuba is believed to be from Soviet-made and apparently Soviet-manned missile batteries. The big question to which no ne here pretends to have an an- wer is whether these Soviet rews would heed Cuban orders o fire, on U.S. planes. That the United States is de- ermined to go ahead with recon- laissance flights over Cuba, at loth low and high altitudes, was made plain by a State Depart- ment spokesman Friday. When the Defense Department was asked about steps for pro- tecting the reconnaissance planes attention was called to two previ- ous statements by defense of- ficials. On Oct. 27, Secretary of De- fense Robert S. McNamara, re- ferring to the shooting down of the U2 plane piloted by Maj. Ru- dolf Anderson, said the possibility of further attacks "requires that we be prepared for any eventu- ality." Asst. Secretary Arthur Sylves- ter, official spokesman for Pentagon, said that "Appropriate measures will be taken to insure that such missions are effective and protected." The first question Was whether jet interceptors would be sent to escort and protect the unarmed photo reconnaissance planes. The Defense Department de- clined to discuss methods to be used in these "appropriate meas- ures However, the type of defenses of the Cuban bases and the tech- nique used by the United States in aerial reconnaissance have made it apparent that fighter pro- tection would do nothing to solve the problem, unless and until the Russian MIG fighters known to be in Cuba are sent up. Here again the unanswerable question of the Russians' role arises. About 100 MIG jets are be- lieved to be in Cuba. How many Cuban pilots have been trained for them is not known. However, in contrast to the missiles which have been on the island a relatively few weeks, there have been some MIGS available for training purposes for more than a year. The U2 apparently was downed by fire from a high-altitude. Rus- sian-designed missile, similar to thac used against the U2 shot down over Russia two years ago. A defense spokesman, at the outset of the Cuban crisis, told newsmen there was every reason to believe that the surface-to-air missiles in Cuba "arc beta" mannoJ and operated by Rus- sians, because they arc highly technical" and because there had not been time to train Cubans in use of the missiles. The Russian A2-typc missiles, while attaining at least two sue- JFK to Tour Space Sites WASHINGTON (AP) Presi- ent Kennedy wil make a hop- kip tour of key Air Force, space nd nuclear centers in the Far West next month, the White House announced Friday.

By MILTON BESSER UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (AP) Cuban crisis sharpened Fri- day with the Soviet Union de- fending Fidel Castro's threat to shoot down U.S. planes and the United States declaring flights over Cuba would continue with all protection necessary. Soviet Delegate Valerian A. Zorin said the Cuban prime min- addedMhe ister's protest against the U.S. reconnaissance flights "is perfect- ly legitimate" and that attempts to violate Cuban sovereignty "cannot but provoke universaT condemnation." He termed the flights unlawful and said the U.S. decision to con- tinue them caused "deep concern for the peace of the world." Zorin spoke in the U.N. Gen- eral Assembly's main Political Committee, where a Cuban rep- resentative had asserted Castro's warning to shoot down planes was already being put into effect. But U.S. Delegate Arthur Dean told the committee that Castro's threat carries no the United'States. Dean said that pending U.S.- Soviet agreement on all measures for verification of removal of of- fensive weapons from Cuba "the United States will be forced to continue to take its own appro- priate measures to assure against the possibility that the people ol the Western Hemisphere may be threatened from Cuban soil." He said the members of the Or- ganization of American States had decided to take all steps neces- sary to guard against any threat from Cuba. "And the United States, in ac- cordance with that mandate, will continue to carry out that man- date and will use all means neces- saiy to assure that this is he declared. The exchange came amid United States and other members of the organization of American States are compelled to take whatever steps are necessary to guard against threats to their peace and security. Reliable sources said U.S. de- termination to maintain surveil- ance had been transmitted to the Soviet Union on Thursday night during the latest round of U.S.- Soviet negotiations. mounting concern that the Cuban crisis may be approaching a new danger point. Castro's verbal blasts failed to ludge U.S. determination to con- tinue air surveillance over Cuba sending agreement on adequate of removal of all of- :ensive weapons. U.S. officials said the nights would continue with U.S. planes taking whatever steps may be WEATHER necessary to meet hostile action from Cuba. In Washington, President Ken- nedy called in his top military and diplomatic advisors for con- sultation. The State Department declared that Castro had rejected all ef- forts to obtain adequate verifica- tion of a secret arms buildup in S.

On Nov. 3 voters defeated ef- forts to build a school. However in that election two proposals ap- peared on the ballot. One called [or a bond issuance of to build a new centrally located high school and a new elementary school in Tuscola. The second was for issuance of in bonds and construction of a new high school here, at the site of the present high school, which the TEA has termed inadequate. On Saturday's ballot only the second proposition will appear. Controversy on the issue be- came heated in the past week vhen four residents went to Aus- .in to check with the TEA to de- termine just what their situation was, although they had already been told by the school board. The residents brought back stories of what they considered a discrepancy between the "actual situation" and what they had been told by the board members. Supt. of Schools Arnett Weeks said Friday night that he and others contacted Commissioner of Education J. W. Edgar and found that Edgar had just showed the four residents copies of the letters the TEA had sent to the School Board. "There is actually no differenci in the situation as we (the board explained it to the Week: said, asserting that no false re- ports had been made to the dis trict's voters.
