This proposal was that the secre- taiy-general negotiate an agree- ment between the two big powers for withdrawal of weapons. One White House reaction was that shipment of offensive weap- ons to Cuba must stop, work on Soviet missile bases there must stop and these offensive weapons must be rendered inoperable.

It was felt here that Khru shchev was surprised by President Kennedy's forceful action in the Cuban situation and that Khru- shchev wants another chance to assess the American leader.
