Orders to search for the Cessna twin-engine plane in which Cienfuegos disappeared Oct. 28 with a pilot and one soldier came from the 14th air force search and rescue division at Macon, Ga. There was no immediate re- port on where the request for the hunt originated, but there was speculation that it might have been made by Cuban Premier Fidel Castro.

In the keynote address, at a Red Square rally, Defense Minister Marshal Rodion Ma- linovsky praised Premier Nikita Khrushchev's world disarmament proposals to the United Nations. State of Preparedness But he also said that the Soviet Union will maintain a state of high military prepar- edness until the proposals are accepted and all U. S. foreign bases are liquidated. The 20-minute military pa- rade contained nothing spec- tacularly new in equipment, according to western military attaches. One said there were some "refinements" of what he had seen before. The civilian demonstration that followed included a dis- play of miniature sports cars This was the first time such cars had ever appeared in a Red Square parade. Thousands of athletes and other civilian groups partici pa'ting in the parade cheered Khrushchev and other govern- ment and party leaders atop the mammoth mausoleum. Moscow streets were decked out with red streamers and flags to mark the 1917 revolu- tion. Model of Lunik There also was plenty of evi- dence of Russia's recent scien- tific advances.

May Take Six Weeks For Steel Mills to Approach Capacity Pittsburgh The Taft- Hartley injunction against the steel strike offers no magic formula for speeding nulls into peak production or hur- rying the half-million strik- ers back to work. Steel producers estimate it will take them up to six weeks to get production back to 90 per cent of capacity. They figure it will take up to three weeks to get new steel rolling in an important way. Some of the workers may remain idle until the mills are once more humming at near capacity rates. Many of those are recalled quickly will wait a month or more be- 'ore drawing their first pay.

None had a prior rec- ord. State's Atty. Dean Sumner of Codington county said the robbery started off as a prank, but turned serious when one of two 16-year-olds "decided to go ahead with it on the spur of the moment'." -The boy entered'the Farm- ers State bank in this north- eastern South Dakota hamlet with a white handkerchief ov- er his face and carrying a .22 calibre rifle. Another, 13, stood in the lobby, his face covered by a stocking cap. The rifleman ordered bank President A. J. Turbak, 60, to "give me some money." Sumner said the boys told him three of them convinced the one who held up Turbak to return the money.
