Daily Chronicle, The (Newspaper) - June 23, 1961, Centralia, Washington European Defense Boost Is Planned WASHINGTON (ffl The West is planning to step up its defenses in Europe as evidence of its determina- tion to stand firm on Ber- lin. High-ranking officials, in reporting this today, refer- red to the seriously worded statement Secretary of State Dean Rusk made at his news conference Thurs- day. He blamed the Sov- iets for the tension in the world and restated the Western position on Berlin. No Soviet action, Rusk said, can extinguish the right of the Western powers in Berlin. West- ern forces are to remain in the divided German city, he added, and no peaceful solution can be reached at the expense of West- ern obligations in Berlin. "The United States and those associated with us are clear and firm our obligations to our- selves and to the people of West Rusk said. The Western powers, informants said, are planning to quicken the beefing up of Atlantic alliance forces in Europe and to increase their state of readiness. This will be done quietly and without fan- fate but in a way-that should serve as notice to the Soviets. The thinking behind this strat- egy, is, officials explained, that Soviet Premier Khrushchev does not seem to have been sufficient- ly impressed by the warnings President Kennedy repeatedly has made. In the past, it is recalled, the Soviet Union oflen paid at- tention to a show of force where words were of no avail. Centrolio-Cheholis, Washington atlu Cfcro )0 Cents FRIDAY, JUNE 23, 1961 14 PAGES 70TH YEAR, NO. 148 Meanwhile, the United States continues consultations with its al- lies on the U.S. reply to Khrush- chev's June 4 aide memoire on Berlin. The consultations started in Washington last week when Foy D. Kohler, assistant secre- tary of state for Europe, .con- ferred with Sir Evelyn Shuckberg of the British Foreign Office and i with Jean Lalois, French special-; isl on German affairs. The State Department now is waiting for advice from Paris and London through normal diplomat- ic channels and the U.S. reply to the Soviet note is expected to be ready in about a week or 10 days. Before that, however, Llewel- lyn Thompson, U.S. ambassador to Moscow, will have returned to his post. He is due back on the job next Monday after Washing- ton consultations. Situation Has Deteriorated Stevenson Reports On Trip WASHINGTON (AP) U.N. i program enunciated by Kennedy Ambassador Aillai Stevenson re- to raise economic and social ported to President Kennedy to- day that he found increasing dis- content and a worsening econom- ic situation during his 18-day tour of South America. Stevenson told newsmen after reporting to the President on his journey to 10 South American cap- itals that the situation in that part of the hemisphere has deterior- ated since he traveled through the same area a year ago. But, Stevenson added, "There is more- universal awareness of the necessity for making social reforms in all of these countries." Stevenson said role in the Cuban invasion was unpopular in South America, where "the principle of nonintervention is a religion." Stevenson, on the other hand, said the alliance for progress standards throughout the southern half of the hemisphere is general- ly regarded as "the dawn of a new day in our relations." Kennedy sent the U.N. ambas- sador on a whirlwind tour of all 10 South American countries to get a sounding on the adminis- tration's alliance for progress pro- gram. Stevenson's mission also was to find out what kind of re- ception the Communist-oriented Castro regime in Cuba was get- ting. "We found a tremendous inter- est and hope in the alliance for Stevenson said on his arrival Thursday night in Wash- ington. "The conviction is uni- versal that more rapid social and economic development is imper- ative." And, on communism, Stevenson said: "If there was any idea that communism in Cuba is only a problem for the Untied States, I believe we dispelled this illusion." Stevenson said he found meager support for the Cuban prime min- ister but "a broad feeling for so- cial reform." Earlier, in a brief stopover in Puerto Rico, Stevenson said the economic and social situation in Lalin America had deteriorated since his long journey south of the border last year. "The poor and hungry man, awakening to the knowledge of a better life, will not stand back and wait Stevenson remark- ed. He said the trip was "success- ful in. all and he was met everywhere with an extraor- dinary welcome and hospitality. Castro Turns Down U. S. Tractor Offer WEST WILL STAY1 Secretary o< State Dean Rusk tells a news conference Thursday that "the Soviets cannot extinguish me rights of the western powers in Berlin." H was response to Khrushchev's threat that he would sign an East German peace treaty by the end of this year. AP WIREPHOTO Dismal Picture Painted Defense Budget Heads for Floor WEST, Fla. Prime Minister Fidel Cas- Iro rejected today the lat- est offer of the Tractors for Freedom Committee but said he would send a dele- gation of captured rebels back (o the United Slates ito explain his position to i the American public. In the rejection, reported i by Havana radio, Castro j charged (hat the commit- tee lied when it accused Castro of changing his po- sition.

The committee's finnl olfer was to exchange tlic prisoners for 500 bulldozers of various types, most- ly farm tractors. It said that if Castro failed to accept, money received from con- tributors to the tractor fund would be returned to the senders. The radio quoted Castro us say- ing that from tho very beginning he had clearly specified the num- ber and type of tractors he want- would hnve to gel of them, instead of Castro told the committee thai "it we were prepared to accept smaller value had (o equal to that of the 500 super V8s, will) attachments, orig- inally the radio re- ported.

Tho United States stripped him of dipiomalic immunity and threatened to deport him as illegal alien if he did not leave. It acted a lot tougher at the finish than it did at the start. Reporters were puzzled that the U.S. government let the Czech Communists take the lead in pub- licizing the incident. The Czechs broke the story a week ago when their U.N. mission .charged two U.S. intelligence agents in Ihe company of a known Czech defector, tried to hire Nacvalac as a spy on the previous 13. It took tho U.S. State Depart- ment six hours to come up with charges that Nacvalac was.a spy who gave U.S. agents the false impression he wanted to defect. The United Stales sent a note to the Czech mission demanding that Nacvalac get out of the country because of "improper activities." Nacvalac meanwhile made him- self available to reporters with an account of two U.S. agents named "Mr. Mack and Mr. Jack" interrupting his smorgas- xird luncheon at a New York res- taurant to enlist him for espion- age. He said he was with an Ameri- can friend talking about favorite spots for bass friend for whom he said he had obtained WASHINGTON Kennedy's beefed up defense budget was approved almost to the letter today by the House Ap- propriations Committee as it painted a dismal picture of world conditions.

He made that farewell com- ment at National Airport just be- fore his takeoff. Secretary of State Dean Rusk, saying the ceremonial farewell at the airport, generally echoed Ike- da's views. He said the visit "rep- resents a high point in the rela- ions of the United Slates and Japan." Rusk described the talks as "most useful." Full military honors were ren- dered before Ikeda and his wife boarded the big plane for New York where the prime first engagement was with United valac be recalled, saying it vio- lated the U.S.-U.N. agreement giving special status to toe U.N. headquarters- diplomats attached to it. On Tuesday the' United States fired off a memorandum to Secre- tary-General Dag Hammarskjold charging that Nacvalac, in a se- ries of meetings in California paid to a naturalized American of Czech descent for information Nacvalac thought was highly se- cret. Actually, the United Slates said, the American was working with Ihe FBI and the information he passed was worthless. Nacvalac, again meeting wifh denied the detailed U.S. story as a fabrication and said he had never been in California. The Slale Department produced pictures it said showed he was there. On Wednesday, the United Slates sent a curt note to the Czech mission announcing that Nacvalac's dipiomalic status had been revoked, that he was an alien in the country illegally, and lhat he could either leave volun- tarily or be deported.
