Baulch WASHINGTON-The count of Soviet nuclear missiles leaving Cuba aboard Russian vessels went on Saturday with 41 of the listed 42 apparently on the high seas. The V. S. Navy made close-up examinations of three merchantmen Saturday following inspection of four other ships Friday-with six to eight missiles identified on the decks of all except two. One apparently was carrying five on its deck and another had no missiles. The Navy was taking no chances that some of the Russian vessels might try, to return to Cuba. ............ The U. S. guided missile warship Dahlgren Indians Will Get Mig Jets Nehru Reports Shift In Russia's Policy NEW DELHI, India -�' VP) - Reporting a slight shift in Soviet attitude, Prime Minister Nehru said Saturday the Russians will send Mig21 jet fighter planes for India's possible use in the undeclared border way with Red China. Nehru told a closed session of a consultative committee of Parliament that a number of the jets would arrive in mid-December. India put iw the order, for the jets long before the Red Chinese opened an offensive Oct. 20 on two fronts in the Himalayas along India's northern frontiers. Six jets were believed to have been ordered for December and six more for delivery at an unspec ified later date. Nehru's statement on the planes, reported to, newsmen by committee members, was the latest from the government on the long-secret jet deal. The Russians, faced with wounding their Chinese ally, were at first reported to have reneged on,1 the order. 1 Moscow newspapers sympathetically supported the Red Chinese in their drives to dc-cupy disputed border areas in the Himalayas. But Nehru told the meeting there had been a shift in Kremlin thinking in India's favor. Committee members did not elaborate on what Nehru had to,say atiout this. There was speculation he was basing his remarks on editorials in Soviet newspapers which have taken a more neutral attitude recently.

WASHINGTON - President Kennedy and his advisers are getting ready to concede a major change this week in the complexion of the Cuban crisis. Though their demands for long-term safeguards against another offensive military buildup in Cuba have not yet been met, there is a growing feeling here that Soviet good faith in withdrawing missiles will have to be acknowledged and that future issues will have to be pressed more directly against Premier Fidel Castro rather than against Premier Khrushchev. This change cannot occur, officials explain, until 30 or more Soviet 1128 jet bombers also arc removed from Cuba, but there was new optimism here this weekend that the Russians will yield on this point also. If they do, the United States will probably agree to. suspend the naval blockade for a period of new negotiations. Intensive aerial reconnaissance of Cuba almost certainly will continue indefinitely. Soviet negotiators at the United Nations have tried to exempt the bombers from the Khrushchev-Kennedy bargain, arguing that they are "obsolete" and, in any case, in Cuban hands. But the U. S. has rejected this argument and insisted that Khrushchev keep his promise to remove whatever weapons Kennedy regarded an offensive. * * * TO BACK UP this demand, U S. negotiators have been quietly Move to Aid Cities Made By Thomas A. Knight warning the Russians that their' failure to recall the bombers would again raise the possibility of a direct confrontation between Soviet and American ships near Cuba since Washington would want to deny the bombers spare parts, bombs and possibly fuel. But if the bombers are removed, there is likely to be much less inclination here to hold Moscow responsible for the rest of BOTH BANK JOB SUSPECTS Fugitive, Girl Nabbed by FBI BALTIMORE-m-Bobby Randell (One Eye) Wil-coxson, sought on both sides of the Atlantic for a series of bank robberies, was arrested with his girl friend Saturday by the FBI in Baltimore. The FBI said Wilcoxson, one of their 10 most wanted fugitives, was arrested with 19-year-old Jacqueline Ruth Rose as the pair stepped out of a house they had rented only last week. Miss Rose also faces bank robbery charges. The FBI believes she drove the getaway car in at least one of the robberies.

WD Municipalities Saturday adopted a legislative program which, if enacted, would boost considerably the financial stature of the state's 234 local governments. Five of nine proposals endorsed by the league suggest new methods of revenue raising and will be introduced at the next session of the legislature. A sixth proposal, meanwhile, which would permit all municipalities to share in liquor store sales taxes imposed by municipalises where the stores are located, was defeated. , Instead, the league decided only to request the legislature to study methods whereby all local governments can share in either the total municipal liquor sales tax revenues, or profits fjrjwrt'the state's liquor sales,monopoly THE FIVE" PROPOSALS adopted, by the league seek: An amendment to the constitution enabling municipalities to issue general obligation bonds outside the prescribed debt limit for funds to be used on at least a 50-50 matching basis with i e d e r a 1 project funds.

At a hearing before U. S. Commissioner H. Allen Mczger, held a few hours later merely to establish their Identity and fix bail, Wilcoxson and Miss Rose admitted their identity. Mezger ordered them held in bail of $100,000 each on a bench warrant from Buffalo. Both were taken to the Baltimore city jail. "Nothing to say now," Wilcoxson replied to a question from Mezger, but did say he had been told he would be allowed to telephone a lawyer after the hearing. Wilcoxson wore a blue pullover sweater, olive green slacks and a white shirt open at the collar Miss Rose was wearing corduroy slacks, a sweater with broad blue and white stripes, flat shoes and a kerchief on her head. Wilcoxson, 33, and -Nussbaum also are prime suspects in the record $1%' million haul from a postal truck in Plymouth, Mass., last August.    THE FBI SAID Wilcoxson was armed with a loaded pistol when a squad of agents arrested him and the red-haired Miss Rose as they started to enter an automobile parked across the street from the house they had moyed into last week, "His hair was dyed gray and shaved to give the appearance of baldness." said FBI Director J Edgar Hoover. "He sported a CHARLESTON IA black mustache and wore glasses." Asked If Wilcoxson offered any resistance, one arresting officer said: "He didn't have a chance." The FBI said Miss Rose's 14-month-old son, Kenneth Lewis, was with the couple when they were arrested outside the house. About a dozen children were nearby, some dressed as soldiers and playing war. The house is in a good neighborhood of North Baltimore. The FBI said the couple rented, the row house last Oct. 24 on one of several trips Wilcoxson made from an apartment in Philadelphia where they spent last summer. Hoover said Wilcoxson used the' name of Robert Thomas Bronsofi and Miss Rose the name Gloria Banks in Baltimore, where Wilcoxson posed as her father. IN PHILADELPHIA, they used the names Charles and Barbara Dix while living in a first-floor, rear apartment. Ironically, one FBI man lives (Please Turn to Page ISA Col. 3) the bargain. Khrushchev had pledged readiness to let U. N. representatives "verify" the dismantling of offensive weapons. The Russians appear to have persuaded the administration that they cannot facilitate any inspection of Cuban territory as long as Premier Castro refuses to permit it. v Washington has received no indication of the nature of progress of talks in Havana between Anastas I. Mikoyan, a Soviet first deputy premier, and the Cuban leaders. But Mikoyan is expected to return to New York this week with a claim that the Soviet Union had fulfilled Its pledge and with a demand that the U. S. certify this compliance and register with the U. N. Its own pledge not to invade or abet the invasion of Cuba. If the Russians promise to withdraw the bombers, the U. S. will probably anticipate the Sovi-(Please Turn to Page 12A Col. 2) Four Injured In City Crash Four persons were injured late Saturday night in a screeching two-car crash at Kanawha Boulevard and California Street.

Working swiftly, soldiers had removed at least half of the bristling array before dark. It was not known whether the . weapons were being deployed elsewhere or whether authorities judged there was no further need for them. Barbed wire, still festooned with seaweed washed up by Friday's high tides, was rolled up and trucked away. However, some rockets remained on their launchers behind barbed wire on the waterfront and there was no Immediate indication that the entire installation was to be deactivated. South of the fortified beach, a big seaside hotel was still occupied by the military and the barbed wire barricades which surrounded It remained in place. A soldier helping to dismantle a radar set on the beach waved cheerfully at a passing car. It might have been a gesture of farewell or just a friendly greeting. At the hotel pier, meanwhile, several soldiers were fishing, giving the impression that they had no immediate plans for going anywhere. VERDICT WILDLY CHEERED Jury Acquits All In Mercy Killing LIEGE, Belgium-OT-A 12-man jury, all parents but one, acquitted a young mother, three relatives and their family doctor Saturday In the mercy killing of an armless, 8-day-old thalidomide baby. The courtroom, packed to the walls throughout the five - day trial, rang with cheers. Some women fainted. One woman was injured in the crush of a crowd outside. A Brussels newspaper was on the streets with an extra in minutes after the verdict. A battery of defense attorneys in two days of summation countered prosecution demands for a verdict of guilty appealing to the jury to consider (he killing of 8-day-old | Carinne Vandcput to lie so-| ciety's crime. On this final, tense day, defense attorney Edgar'-Emile Jeu-nehomme made one more appeal to the jury: "You know, as we do, that this trial should also have considered the responsibility of society, science, some doctors and all the merchants of infirmities who should be on the bench of the accused.

Her child was born May 22 and died on May 29. THE YOUNG mother admitted she put a barbiturate into the baby's formula. She was charg* ed with homicide. Her husband, Jean, 35; her sister, Monique de La Marck, 26; the child's grand* mother, Fernande Yerna, 50, and Dr. Jacques Casters, 33, were charged with complicity. They were not in court when the verdict was reported by the jury president, but were brought in later to be informed by court president Paul - Emile Trousse, "You are acquitted. You are to be freed immediately." The jury deliberated one hour and 40 minutes to reach its ver* diet. The jury's complete acquittal meant the prosecution, which had suggested a verdict of guilty with leniency, could not appeal. Letters received by the court, newspapers and radio stations during the trial strongly favored acquittal of the defendants. But a high Belgian court official in Brussels disagreed with the verdict. "For me, having killed a child is a crime and there is no excuse for that." he said. "What is to be feared is that other persons will allow themselves, on the basis of (his verdict, to act In the sam way." More than an hour after the acquittal the five left in their lawyers' automobiles, meeting later at a cafe. Dr. Casters was greeted at his home Saturday night by a cheering crowd. He was carried on others' shoulders and flowers were tossed to him and his wife. Their 5-year-old son Philippe was brought from the house and threw himself into the arms oj his weeping father.
