Rough weather, however, delayed the transfer. Strong winds forced the trawlers and the patrol boats to turn back soon after they set out for the Poro Point Naval station on Luzon's west coast. Navy authorities said the trip would be made when the weather clears. A foreign office spokes- man said the investigation might take another day or so.

A pair of high school youths scared, chilled, but uninjured were hoisted last night from a precarious perch midway up a sheer, 325-foot cliff to safe- ty. The youths were trapped six hours by crumbling rock. The two began the climb apparently as a lark, and hoped to climb a ladder they thought had been built into the cliff as part of a dam construction project. There was no ladder. They began their climb late on a warm afternoon, and were jacketless and wearing cotton shirts. After the sun went down, and as they clung to the cliff, the youths were chilled by icy winds that sprang up in the Lewis river canyon. 7 In Rescue Team Seven men, from the Moun- tain Safety and Rescue Coun- cil of Oregon, came from Portland, Ore., some 50 miles southwest of the area, to res- cue them.

The U.S.S.R. suggested ei- ther the heads of state or the oreign ministers should meet next month in Vienna or Ge- neva, agreeing in advance to complete their work in, two to three months. In addition to the Soviet Un- ion, the United States, Britain and France, Moscow said, Po- land, Czechoslovakia and East and West Germany should participate. The Soviet position was set forth in notes delivered just before Prime Minister Mac- millan of Britain conferred in the Kremlin with Premier Khrushchev. They talked for nearly two hours.
