Wisconsin Rapids Daily Tribune (Newspaper) - November 1, 1962, Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin B The Days That Shook the World men who later participated in the de- conferences leading to the of of the of the National Security Council from the Defense and State nents trie told them about the photographs 30 Tuesday morning these same men met with McNamara The photo their findings The evidence of struction of actual Soviet s still was not regarded as conclusive Reconnaissance Was Doubled imara did consider it sufficiently quieting to call the White House About r later around 9 the information the President's hands that day Kennedy examined the himself irst step was to order a redoubling of lissance over the suspicious points in 2 next few days reccy pilots shot more 000 feet of film over the suspicious sites swift and baleful changes the evidence became incontrovertible Soviet missile bases were rapidly rising near the cities of Remedies San Cristobal and La Grande There some eight or 10 bases with about four launchers at each base Soviet light the 28 also were marshalling on the island Two Types of Installation In his report to the nation of Oct 22 Kennedy called this the Soviet military buildup on Cuba He described two distinct types of installation one for a medium rocket with range of more than miles the second not yet for intermediate missiles with double this range and both capable of carrying nuclear warheads He also mentioned the bombers Kennedy spoke of this urgent transformation of Cuba into an important strategic base by the presence of these large long-range and clearly offensive weapons He then announced the quarantine on further shipments of offensive weapons to Cuba and And these actions may be only the ning The week that preceded this decision is pretty much of a blur to men who participated in it One describes it as a nightmare They cannot remember clearly where they were or what they did on a given day They can provide only a sketchy picture of Kennedy during this high-energy high-tension It is his typical reaction when he is under pressure Defense In High Gear As additional evidence of the threat from Cuba rapidly mounted they were briefed at least once a day sometimes twice Between briefings they gathered in the State ment examining the terrible potentialities matching ideas on actions to recommend to the President The meetings often went on until late at night Through the week of Oct McNamara slept in his Kennedy did not leave the White House until last Sunday morning when he went to church Two things they say surprised them most in this period the speed of the Soviet work on the bases and the fact that Soviet Premier Khrushchev would do anything so dangerous One said it appeared that only four or five days elapsed between the detection of the first scars in the earth and the rise of the range missile sites None he said was yet operational They calculated the missile by different markings from the mediums would become operational by Dec 1 As for Khrushchev's motive in attempting to supplement the armed might of the Soviet Union with a base in the Western Hemisphere they are only theories The prevailing one is if we didn't do thing about Cuba we wouldn't do anything about Berlin or any other point Or as another put it If you're not going to react when he Khrushchev has something like this pointed right at your guts when are you going to The question may remain long unanswered But on the morning of Tuesday Oct 16 when Kennedy first was advised of the new evidence the Soviet threat existed and was rapidly in- creasing in magnitude The question What to do about if and the day of decision EWS PAPER finth Wisconsin Rapids Wisconsin Thursday November 1 1962 Single Copy Ten Cents Wiley Campaign e
