The Minuteman missile, a test vehicle for 22 months; officially becomes part of the nation's war- time bombing power the first of true push-button ca- pacity. Twenty of the nuclear-tipped missiles were declared ready for war duty in their underground, concrete silos just west..of this -headquarters city for Malstrom Air Force Base.

Each missile is programmed for a specific target and has its own guidance system to take it there. Before 1965, after an. estimated 10-year expenditure, of more than billion, the United States is ex- pected to have more than 800 of these three-stage rockets on sta- tion. They include 150 in North and South Dakota and Missouri and 200 in Wyoming.

Previously he had said addition- al money would be provided for public schools and colleges. These are three areas of big govern- ment spending. Bellmon was asked if he thinks an "adequate" mental health pro- gram can be financed the next two years. He said there will be an increase over the approximate- ly million for this biennium but he is not sure what is con- sidered adequate. At his morning press conference the Republican governor-elect said he will not work on appointments until he completes his at week's end. He had no quarrel with Gov. J. Howard Edmondson for announc- ing he will reappoint W. J. (Tex) Bynum as pardon and parole di- rector later this week. "The pardon and parole ap- pointment was never mentioned in the conference (with Edmond- he said. "But he is still the governor and is free to take any action he sees fit." Bynum's reappoiritment will come less than five weeks before Bellmon takes office and he can make another change then if he pushes for it. Bynum recently was cleared of charges stemming from his former service on -the Inola School Board. Bellmon said he has conferen- ces this week with a number of state officials, including Dr. T. Glyne Williams, mental health di- rector and Dr. Kirk Mosley, pub- lic health commissioner. Since his election, he has re- ceived invitations to make speech- es in about 10 states other than Oklahoma. But Bellmon said he is declining. "It's not possible to accept these invitations and still get the work he said. India Awaits Reaction Of Reds To Rejection Married couples who sit on one chair have the least room for argument. (Copr. Gen. Fea. Corp.) NEW DELHI, India dians awaited today Red China's reaction to Prime Minister Neh- ru's rejection of Peking's terms for settling their Himalayan bord- er conflict. In a broadcast today, the Chi- nese said they suspected India of "deliberately sabotaging" Pe- king's one-sided cease-fire "and creating a tense situation on the border." The broadcast charged that In- dian military planes flew recon- naissance missions Monday over captive Tibet and over Chinese- held territory on the eastern end of the disputed border. Nehru told Indian soldiers in a broadcast Monday night the war might be long and hard but .India would emerge victorious by free- ing its territory of Chinese invad- ers. He said India had welcomed the Chinese proclamation of a cease- fire Nov.-22 after 32 days of war- fare: But the Chinese should with- draw completely from India, Neh- ru said, instead of making pro- posals that would leave them in the Ladakh area of northwestern India. "It appeared these proposals might be a cover for -further at- Nehru said. "Therefore we have to be fully prepared." Nehru declared earlier in Par- liament: "At.present there is no meeting ground between us." Indian Finance Minister Mor- arji Desai said the defense budget I would have to be doubled and 5 per cent of the national income devoted to defense against the Chinese. One of China's aims was -to dis- rupt India's economy, Desai told a public meeting. Both New Delhi' and Peking kept an eye on Ceylon, where 'six nonaligned nations are meeting in an effort to find a solution- to the conflict. The nations are the United Arab Republic, Ghana, Indonesia, Cambodia, Burma and Ceylon. Ada's JP Hears 6 Cases Monday 'Six cases were filed Monday in JP court-and two-others in County Court.

Welcomes "Box" Proposal As Good Sign Cold Weather Sweeps Over State, Nation; Snow Parayzes East As Storm Heads Into Deep Southland Soviets Leave Cuba Slowly, Rusk Says WASHINGTON AP) Soviet troops are being withdrawn from Cuba at a very slow rate, U.S. officials said today. And although ;he United States is not >ressing Russia on the is- sue it is expected to do so if he withdrawals are not speeded up fairly soon. Secretary of. State Dean Rusk old a news conference Monday that the role of' Soviet combat units in Cuba "is of great con- cern to us and something we will ollow very carefully." "Certainly we in this hemi- sphere could not accept as a nor- mal situation any Soviet military >resence in he' said. Russians The number' of .Soviet officers and men stationed oh the Carib- >ean island is estimated at a possibly organ- zed, Rusk said, "into .what ap- peared to be Soviet combat units." He described the scale of Soviet xjwer in Cuba as "modest )ut well armed. "Whether these (troops) were here for the protection- of. cer- tain-sites, missile sites or other- wise, or'for' some, other purpose s' something that is being, of course, watched very carefully."

"We welcome the Soviet propo- sal as, hopefully, a forerunner of things to Stelle said.

China and Russia. At the outset.of the news con- ference, Rusk.discounted the pos- sibility of any significant devel- opments at the NATO meeting. He said the United States would -argue' in Paris for bringing NATO's European strength, up to full goal of 30 divisions. He said ways would also be discussed for improving consultations among the 15 member governments on worldwide issues; N Further consideration of the problems of. sharing responsibility for nuclear, weapons strategy among.-the' alliance members is another topic, Rusk added.

British Push Rebels Back In Brunei ANDUKI AIRPORT, Brunei troops recaptured most of the Brunei oilfield town of Seria today, then closed in on the police station where 50 die- hard rebels were holding nine Eu- ropeans as hostages.-. The nationality of the hostages was not known, but Brig. A. G. British commander of the Seria operation, said no wo- men or children, were among them. Army-.officers .-sai3Ta-.number of Europeans, 'mostly British em- ployes of the .Shell; Oil Co., were liberated in' Seria, and 'at least six rebels 'were, killed and more than a dozen captured. No British casualties were reported, was the' first -major counter- attack .since the revolt broke out Saturday. rebels' say they want to cre- ate an independent, country on the north coast of Borneo out of the Brunei Sultanate and the neigh- boring British colonies of North Borneo and Sarawak. There were no reports, of dam- age to-the oil. fields -at 'Seria. The rebels had threatened to sabotage them if they were attacked. Kuala Belait, another oil field seven miles to the west, was stili believed to be in rebel hands. Shell's administrative center is there. A flight over the area showed 'no damage, and smoke curled peacefully from one indus- trial plant. The total killed in the four-day rebellion is believed to be more than '40, including 26 rebels. The British assault on Seria be- gan Monday when Gurkas 'and the Queen's Own Highlander's 'were' airlifted to Anduki airport, on the eastern outskirts, and to a swampy field west of the -town. Four rebels -were killed in the recapture of the Pehaga police station-west-of Seria. All' was reported quiet in Bru- nei Town, the capital, except for sporadic sniping from surround- ing hills. Estimates of rebel strength ranged- from a few hundred to several thousand. The rebel force fought mostly with' shotguns, knives and a few rifles and automatic weapons, captured .from .overrun police posts. A rebel attack failed .'to-develop at oil.port just inside the Sarawak border, where a Gur- sba'. unit was dug in behind sand- bags: Insurgents were believed to have the'upper hand at the Sara- (Continutd on Pagt two) More Names Drop In Stevenson Controversy .NEW YORK name of McGeorge Bundy, special pres- idential assistant for'national se- curity affairs, has been injected into the. controversy over a mag- azine article dealing with Adlai E. Stevenson's .position in the Cuban crisis, The Columbia Broadcasting System said' Monday night. that 'Bundy supplied two Saturday Evening Post writers.'.with.'.infor- mation for last week's magazine article. The broadcast report also said President Kennedy personally cleared the' way for writers Charles Bartlett and Stewart Al- sop to get the information' about Cuban crisis deliberations in a National 'Security Council meet- ing attended by U.N. Ambassador Stevenson. That latter assertion also was reported Monday by Time and Newsweek magazines, one day after "Life magazine said the same thing. The -Life .report was termed "absolutely and complete- ly without foundation" by the White House press .secretary, Pi- erre Salinger. Bundy could not be reached immediately in Washington for comment on the CBS report. Time and Life had the 'Satur- day Evening Post article which indicated that Stevenson favored a policy of appeasement in the Cuban crisis. Tne'U.N. ambassa- dor 'and the White House have denied that .he supported that approach.- The three magazines said that contrary to the Post account, Stevenson favored a strong U.S. stand. After the Post article appeared, published speculation arose that Kennedy was trying .to ease Ste- venson out of his job for allegedly taking a Cuban-position contrary ..to the. President's. .Speculation has continued as to how the Post writers obtained in- formation aboil' the secret delib- erations. "The. fact said Robert Pierpont, CBS Washington corres- pondent, in a television newscast, "that several' reporters, were briefed by McGeorge tith the President's approval." Pierpont added: "The President allowed others among his. advisors -to discuss Cuba with' reporters, including CIA (Central Intelligence Agen- cy) Director ohn McCone, pres- idential -assistant Ted Sorenson and Dean Acheson. "But most of the material for the (Post) article, which hurt Stevenson, came from McGeorge Bundy. "Although Bundy himself de- nies having said anything about Stevenson's specific role in the Cuban crisis, it known in Washington that Repub- no .friend of Stevenson's. In fact (Bundy) supported Eisen- hower against Stevenson in. two presidential campaigns." Grim Crews Find Last Of 37 Bodies In Mine CARMICHAELS, Pa.

An overnight low of 22 was recorded, after ithe city aad enjoyed a balmy Indian Summer afternoon with a high reading of 60. The forecast calls for all sorts of nasty doings, mostly more cold. The mercury, is supposed to keep on plunging downward, reaching a low of 18 tonight. The chill in Oklahoma was not, riowever, on a par with that which was sweeping over the Eastern portion of the United States. The state was expected to have clear skies, with-light snow flur- ries in the Panhandle. Schools Close But in the northeastern part of the United States, schools closed as snow piled high, and in the deep south, Florida fruit growers grimly looked toward a freeze that could ruin citrus crops. The icy one-two punch of win- try weather was the second to hit many areas in the eastern half-., of the nation since last Thursday.. Millions. felt the sting of. the ''weather. The heavy, blowing' snow inconveni- enced other millions. "Schools dosed, travel slowed, and Christmas shoppers delayed buying tours. Storm-related deaths soared past the. 50 'mark. No Relief Weather forecasters held no hope of any immediate, general relief. Even colder weather was the .unhappy forecast in many areas. And the winter season does not start officially until Dec. 22. Midwinter scenes were general along the southeast shores of. the Great Lakes region, in sections of New York'State, and other east- ern areas. Huge drifts piled high as snow squalls persisted, adding more snow atop the heavy amounts left by last week's storms. Cleanup operations were slowed and halted in some places. Most of the Southland shivered in the season's coldest weather. Florida temperatures dropped to 15 degrees below seasonal lev- els. Crops Are Hit Farmers and grove owners worked through the night as ieavy frost and freezing temper- atures hit every section of the state except the Keys. Smudge "lies were started to protect lender vegetable..'crops. Workers sprayed fields with water, damp- ening .the soil so it would hold he heat better.
