Map easing of the crisis in Jordan sparked Hopes Friday for the revival of Arab israeli peace talks but no Quick re sumption was expected. Sir Alec Douglas Home. In ish foreign Secretary tobit a a news conference that be ginning of talks deep rued particularly with Vej he recast per that egyptian Mohammed h Al Zayyat recently said his country move its missiles in the see canal area Back to their positions at the time of the cease fire if Egypt received guarantees against a Surprise israeli attack. Sir Alec said this might offer a basis for establishing the minimum required of both Sid Syro get the talks going was his View he added Tat both sides wanted to re sume the talks under swedish ambassador Gunnar v. Jarring the special . Envoy. He described the truce in Jor Dan Between palestinian guerrillas and the army As an encouraging Factor that could make it easier to get the Jar ring Mission under Way once More. Abba Eban israeli foreign minister was Host at a luncheon whose guests included jarring. Secretary general u Thant and . Ambassador Charles w. Yost. There was no indication that Eban made any new initiatives that would Lead to Israel s re turn to the talks. They opened at the United nations aug. 25, but Israel withdrew after charging Egypt with installing soviet missiles in the canal zone in violation of the u. cease fire agreement. The Palestine guerrillas agreed to the cease fire in Jor Dan but continued to oppose the israeli Arab cease fire and peace talks. Sir Alec said the objective of the guerrillas in the War in Jordan was to disrupt the jarring Mission and make the talks impossible. Be offensive in nature and thus would bring into play the policy Kennedy enunciated he added that this country would View the establishment of a strategic base in the carib bean with utmost seriousness he said no representations on the subject have yet been made to the soviet Union adding that the United states is keeping close watch to determine what kind of weapons could be based at the site where activity has been spotted at the right the administration official said the United states will take the action that seems indicated the russians have 13 of the Yankee Type nuclear powered submarines and Are building 15 More according to the Penta gon. Officials have reported that one or More Are now stationed in the Atlantic. Friedheim had declined to make any comparison Between the threat posed to the United states in 1962 when the russians moved Long Range missiles into Cuba and the new development at Cienfuegos on Cuba s South Ern Shore we cannot be positive what the intention he said we Are keeping a close watch on these activities and Are continuing to information on soviet activities their seen by u2 the new facilities at Cienfuegos were spotted by High flying american u2 reconnaissance planes the same aircraft that spotted the russian missiles eight ago. The soviets re moved the missiles within a few weeks after president Kennedy threatened direct action and mobilized forces for a pos sible attack the United states uses bases at holy Loch Scotland Rota Spain and the Island of Guam to support Polaris subs cruising in european and Pacific Waters. These bases enable the Craft to remain near their stations by eliminating the need to make the Long trip Home for servicing and supplies a similar facility at Cienfuegos would enable Russia to keep More of its nuclear and Conven tonal subs in Western Waters our longer pends 1 he soviets have no permanent naval facilities m the Western hemisphere. Friedheim noted that although soviet subs and surface ships have operated from Cienfuegos in the past there had been no permanent facilities in the har Bor for their use the submarine tender and three other soviet ships Are now in the Harbor however there Are no submarines at present Cienfuegos which Means "100 fires in Spanish is located about 40 Miles East of the Bay of pigs site of the aborted 1961 in Vasion by a group of map on Page 11 continued on Page 2 col 4 form minor l Vassalboro this town s one ton dump incinerator is go ing to Wear a Label from now on to forestall it being picked again As Booty.
