At 11 a. m., the storm set a north-northwesterly course at 6 miles per hour, but because of the influence of pressure ridges along the northern border of the United States, forecasters would not say if, or where, Ella would move inland. A weather reconnaissance plane penetrated the storm this morning and found maximum winds of 70 m.p.h. near the center, or 300 miles east of Cape Canaveral. Officials at the big missile base took their cue as the storm re- sumed its northerly course and tentatively rescheduled a launch- ing of the Ranger 5 moon shot for Thursday. Clear For Shot Gordon Dunn, chief forecaster, said weather should be clear for the shot.

(NEWS Staff German Chats With Kennedy To Prepare Way For Adenauer WASHINGTON (AP) West German Foreign Minister Gerhard Schroeder discussed the question of Berlin with President Kennedy :oday and reported they reached "very good and complete agree- ment." Leaving a SO-minute conference with Kennedy, he told newsmen reach hurricane status today, was talks with U.S. officials, "We find that as a result of three days of up to now will go Schroeder expected to continue north-north- west a little faster during the next 12 hours, but still under 10 m.p.h. Though the lower eastern coast of Florida was put in the clear, the Weather Bureau warned all small craft from Cape Hatteras, N.C., southward to Palm Beach to remain in port because of slowly increasing tides and seas. Erratic Storm Dunn said the storm's erratic movement was due to a high pres- sure Tidge to the north, which has blocked northward movement. He said a series of weak low pressure troughs have pulled the storm to the north, but as they disappear, the storm bends to the west. Another westerly jog was pre- dicted for Thursday. Dunn would not predict what the storm's eventual path would be, "There's a fair chance it could be picked up by one of the troughs and dear the coast entire- ly. But it will certainly come close enough to affect the coast to some he said. iignway Men Meet Here To Study 4-Laning Four-laning of Arlington east from Mississippi will come a step closer to reality Friday morning. Representative Lonnie Abbott said a meeting will be held Friday at 10 a.m. with county and city officials and highway personnel. The meeting will investigate preliminary plans for four-lane construction of the major east- west artery. Engineers will travel the projected project, checking maps, right-of-way and construc- tion requirements. Here for the meeting will be Ed Kauffman, Oklahoma City, urban design engineer. LeRoy Berry, division engineer, will also attend the meeting, along with Rep. Abbott and other officials. Abbott, who has been working on the project for two years, said the initial survey work was com- pleted in August. He indicated ourselves in agreement on the as- sessment of the Berlin situation and on the methods to be. applied to meet the situation." His talk with Kennedy, he said, "completes my conversations in Washington." Kennedy accompanied his guest to the White House lobby, .then, seeing the unusually large crowd of reporters, withdrew with a smile. Schroeder, who -appeared re- laxed, said his visit served "to prepare the visit the chancellor (Konrad Adenauer) will make here upon the .invitation of your President." Adenauer is due Nov 7, Schroeder' will be with him. I Schroeder is understood to Meanwhile, Foy D. Kohler, the Then, Schroeder added, administration officials will have another opportunity to review our plans." Schroeder was asked whether he foresees any new initiative the West might take as a result of his visit. "Everything that has been done he sees no need for new initiative. There were some smiles when a reporter asked him whether he thought Kennedy has the "proper degree of firmness and flexibili- ty" to deal with the Berlin situa- tion. "I don't want in any way to ut- ter an opinion but you may rest assured that all who are interest- ed take.a firm stand on Schroeder replied. Schroeder declined to say spe- cifically what subjects' were dis- cussed with Kennedy. He did say, in response to a question, that the time was too short to go into the problem of the Common Market. that the East German regime, with Russian backing, 'may try to impose new control over civilian traffic moving into Berlin from West Germany. Schroeder, here since Sunday, is seeking allied support for rejec- tion of such a move. It is not yet clear what'retalia- tory action West 'Germany and its allies could take. Officials indicate there has been some talk of an economic boycott if the East Ger- mands demand regular diplomatic visas for travel to Berlin across their territory. meeting is the first in a series of talks the President plans on the Berlin.situation.1 He .will re- ceive Soviet Foreign Minister An- drei Gromyko Thursday.-Then "on the'-day after the congres- sional 'elections, West German Chancellor Konrad Adenauer will open consultations here with Ken- nedy.. new U.S. ambassador to Moscow, conferred Tuesday with Khrush- chev in the Russian capital It was.believed certain Berlin was high on the agenda.
