Eleven cases of polio have been reported among 13 million persons who received the vaccine. No case, however, has been definitely established as caused by the vaccine.

"Firefly" Satellite Zooms Into Orbit CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) A flashing light "Firefly" satellite soared into orbit today to measure the size and shape of the earth in an experiment which could produce more accurate world maps and establish guide lines for tracking men. to the moon.

Castro reportedly stuck to such demands as abandonment by the United States of its Guantanamo naval base in southeastern Cuba. The 'United States already has rejected Castro's demands, last weekend; He also demanded lifting of all economic measures against his regime and guaran- tees against hit-run raids and in-' vasion. preparations. Talks "Useful" Despite the reported lack of progress, a spokesman for Thant called the meeting "very useful." A communique issued afterward said "Cuba fixed her position and viewpoints with which in- formants said meant Castro was unyielding in his demands.

The submegaton device, with a punch equivalent to between and a million tons of TNT, is scheduled for a five-hour perioc beginning at p.m. Hawai time. The test originally was sel for Tuesday night but was movec back because of technical difficul- ties. The scheduled shot comes on the heels of an announcement by the Atomic Energy Commission in Washington that the Soviet-Union set off a nuclear blast Tuesday in the same intermediate power range. The Soviet detonation was the 26th reported from the current series at the Novaya Zemlya Is- land test station in the arctic. There had been another Soviet nu- clear blast Monday and two Sun- day. Joint Task Force 8 also an- nounced a low-yield shot would be tried above Johnston on Saturday night. That is .the test that- was originally planned for Sunday but pushed back to accommodate the submegaton blast.

Because the rocket was fired on a northeast heading in the direc- tion of the Soviet Union, the De- fense Department announced time and direction of launching in ad- vance. Sources said this was done to alert the Soviet Union so that the Russians would not mistake the rocket for a hostile missile. Official name of the satellite is Anna IB, with the letters standing for Army. Navy, Air Force and NASA, the participating agencies. The "Firefly" nickname derives from four high-intensity xenon gas lights designed to be photo- graphed against a background of stars as they flashed on and off at designated times.

(Continued on Page Two) Navy Blockaders Set Up Smaller Patrol Area Around Cuban Island WASHINGTON Navy ha3 pulled its 'Cuban 'blockade fleet into a more compact patrol area, it was learned today. Exact boundaries, of the new picket line we're not disclosed, 'but they were reported well inside the original patrol section which start- ed as much as 600 or 700 miles off Cuba, extending northeast to- ward Bermuda and eastward of the Virgin Islands. The sea blockade was in sus- pension again .today, but the quar- antine fleet of carriers, destroyers and submarines was still on station. U Thant, acting U.N. secretary- had asked that the U.S. 'blockade -of offensive arms ship- ments to Cuba be lifted before he began discussions in Havana with Cuban Fidel Cas- tro. In announcing 'Monday ,'night that the blockade .would .be sus- pended for two days beginning at dawn Tuesday, the White .House did, not say whether the 'quaran- tine would go back into effect aft- er Thant leaves Havana. Before the suspension, the De- j fense Department had announced interception of only two ships. The first was a Soviet tanker which was hailed and then cleared to continue its voyage to Cuba. The second was a Lebanese ship. Soviet-chartered This boarded by parties from two de- stroyers, who inspected the ship's manifest and cargo and told it to go on.

Officially, the Defense De- partment and Navy have nothing to say about this incident. There are .several unofficial versions of what happened. One is that the Swedish ship simply wasn't de- tected as 'she moved through the perimeter of the blockade; An- other is' that she was hailed, iden- tified herself and gave informa- tion on her sailing orders.

K. Krishna Menon as De- fense Minister tonight and took over the job himself. Krishna Menon mover over to become minister of de- fense production. A Cabinet communique announcing the change came in a rising tide of charges that Menon, bungled India's de- fenses against an attack by Communist Chinese. The tide of .criticism had been getting stronger ever since the Chinese launched an all-out offensive Oct. 20. Krishna Menon had assured the nation its defenses were adequate, but the Chinese have driven into Indian ter- ritory at 13 points, forcing the Indian army back. One reason for the Indian retreats was the inadequate fire-power against the rapid-firing Chinese automatic weapons. Critics have been particularly hard on Krishna Menon's failure to provide proper weapons for his troops. Now India has turned to- the United States and countries that Krishna Menon has a peculiar talent for irritating with slashing attacks in the United Nations and provide desperately needed weap- ons. Krishna Menon had turned to the Soviet Union.both for weap- ons and for what he hoped would be a restraining influence on the Chinese. But Russia has now endorsed the Chinese stand on the border dispute that erupted in an unde- clared war, and the biggest arms deal with the-Soviet Union is now off. Authoritative sources said I Russia has canceled the Indian order for MIG21 jet. fighter planes. A dozen had been'expect- ed to arrive here within the next few months. The sources said Moscow had sent 10 Indian pilots who were training in Russia to fly MIG21s. Further criticism is expected of giving Krishna Menon the newly created ministry of defense pro- duction'in view of the past fail- ures to produce the kind of arms Indian soldiers now need. Nehru had been defense minis- ter as well as prime minister and minister of foreign affairs briefly before Krishna Menon took over the.defense job five years ago.. Nehru, who has been none too well in the last year, is 72. Me- non is 65. The announcement said Presi- dent Sarvapaili Radhakrishnan asked Nehru to take over the de- fense post. Nehru Does Job In fact, Nehru has been han- dling the job for 'the past week, relegating Menon to the back- ground. The decision to replace Menon was taken at a Cabinet meeting which outsiders thought must have been heated. At one point, an information of- ficer was called to handle'an im- Nothing stirs a draft eh'gible like I tant annolmcement.

Josephine Latta, clerk of local board number 64 of the selective service system, reports a flood of boys concerned with the draft swamped her office with calls and visits. They were, bringing marriage certificates and legal papers of all sorts to straighten out any "mis- understandings" at the local of- fice. Mothers called to check on sons with such questions as, "has my son reported the birth of his new Mrs.' Latta says many who should have reported long ago changes in their draft status, sud- denly took a renewed interest. Her only complaint was that' interest always seems to come during a crisis and in such volume that her office, is nearly swamped. Oddly one man discussed" volunteering for the Army at Justice Department Sends No. 2 Man To Ole Miss .OXFORD, Miss. (AP) Amid signs of new trouble, the Justice Department sent its No. 2 man to the racially troubled University of Mississippi on Halloween eve. Rowdy students quickly got this warning: quit harassing Negro James H. Meredith or face fed- eral contempt charges. Nicholas. Katzenbach, the depu- ty attorney general, flew in from Washington in the wake of a fire- cracker barrage on Meredith's dormitory Monday night. L. L. Love, dean of students, later told a group of students Katzenbach had announced that anyone arrested in future disturb- ances would be charged, with con-, tempt of federal court. Tom S. Hines, director of stu- dent personnel, gave announce- ments of the warning to the cam-, station for broadcast, quoting Edwin O.-Guthman, Jus- tice Department .press officer..

The Defense Department re- ceived Monday from the Indian government a list of equipment urgently needed to supply troops; fighting Chinese Communist ar- mies in the Himalayan Moun-! tains. The State Department also said- through a spokesman that the United States considers the Mc- Mahon Line .to be the "northern border of the northeast frontier agency area." Red has refused to ac- cept the boundary which India has long contended is its legal border. Press officer -Lincoln White told a news conference today that "we expect the first priority items (of arms) will be airlifted to India this week."
