Castro set no date for Cuba to become a Communist state.

The anonymous telephone calls to the hospital began Tuesday aft- er an earlier threat to the hospi- tal's medical director was made j public. Police said the publicity i probably led to four subsequent calls, between 5 and 8 p.m. Detective Capt. Michael F. O'Neil said all the calls apparent- ly were from the same man.. As for the baby deaths, O'Neil said police still were looking for any possible malicious intent.- All signs to date point to mistaken use of salt for sugar in the in- fants' formula at the hospital, po- lice said. Floodlights were beamed on the hospital grounds Tuesday night after a mole caller, believed to be an adult, told a'switchboard oper- ator everybody would be dead in the hospital because of a bomb that would explode.

The 17-nation.U. N. dis- armament committee met at the Palace of Nations in late afternoon for a cere- monial session. The last big disarmament confer- ence broke down in 1960. The delegates, including U.S. Secretary of State Dean Rusk and Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko, heard the resumption of negotiations hailed as signal- ing in itself an easing of East- West tensions. American sources said just be- fore the session opened that the Western powers and Russia might be able to negotiate an agreement to block spread of nuclear weapons and thus begin to bring the arms race under control. Western officials saw little pros- pect of agreements in coming months, however, which would halt the manufacture of nuclear weapons. The' outlook "is'dim, for stopping nuclear weapons testing. In. both cases, officials said, the apparently insuperable barrier is Russia's unwillingness to open up its territory to international in- spection.- Gromyko in the preliminary talks was reported to have stuck to the line that Western proposals for an international inspection sys- tem to verify disarmament meas- ures amounts to a demand for espionage rights within the Soviet Union. The present prospect is that President Kennedy's proposal for a test, ban treaty with controls will fall through and that the United States will go forward, as( Kennedy has announced, with its! series of nuclear tests in the at-! mosphere beginning in late April.
