Associated Press and United Press International Pull tease Wires MASON CITY IOWA THURSDAY JULY 27 1961 7c a Copy Paper Consists of Two No 251 To utilize military powers sparingly To unify strotegy Task force moves out WASHINGTON An left Thursday for Paris to begin coordinating Allied political mil itary and diplomatic strategy against Soviet efforts to push the West out of Berlin Officials described this as a significant move in President Kennedys plan to seize the diplomatic initiative from Soviet Premier Khrushchev while also strengthening the allied mil itary front In addition the task force expected to explore with the major U S allies the possibility of economic reprisals against the Soviet bloc if the Russians further tighten the screws on Berlin The diplomatic group headed by Assistant Secretary of State Foy D Kohler will confer in Paris with British French and West German officials These workinglevel allied meet ings will prepare the way for the Aug 57 conference in the French capital of Secretary of State Dean Rusk and the Brit ish French and West German foreign ministers j Is Mr K I i i kidding or not Kennedys on the spot By JAMES MARLOW WASHINGTON President Kennedy is a speedreader but if he could just read minds too the anniversary of his first six months in officewould have been a little more comfortable The greatest dilemma he knewl he faced from the beginning dealing with Premier Khrushchev has caught up with him But now thats here hes in a position of a man wrestling with a phan tom He knew before he took office because Khrushchev had said itj would be this way that sooner or later in 1961 the Russian once again would demand that the Al lies get out of Berlin THE LAST TIME Khrushchev did set a dead line for a settlement but then let it slide past Now again the Rus sian has set a deadline Its six months But what Kennedy doesnt know is whether Khrushchev means it this time So the best he can do on any move he makes is guess He had a choice Be firm or back up He chose to be firm But he appears more than just firm Hes been tough For instance He has let it be known his administration is in creasing the mobilization of the AP Photoiax nations armed forces But in doFOR WHOM THE ALARM SOUNDS Mr and ing sosincc he cant read thej ylrs Clarke Orange N J manage to smile Russians mindall he can hope de pite the fact thev were aroused bv police at K tho hoc HninfT ncfhr t l a m and hustled off to headquarters They and 12 other parties were jarred from their sleep to empha size a crackdown on parking they had ignored is that hes doing right HE DOESNT know if Khrush chev is bluffing He doesnt know if the Russian just wanted to keep the pot boiling without any inten tion of a showdown in the hope hed benefit by any weak spot that showed up in Kennedy If this guess Is right then it might be assumed a tough Ken nedy might cool him off But this isnt necessarily a correct assump tion since it might have just the opposite effect on Khrushchev Kennedy toughness may force Khrushchev even though he had started out bluffing to feel he has to get equally tough or tougher or otherwise lose face in a way ditional defense
