will forget he exists As far as we arc concerned Kadar once said he can stay in the US legation as long as he wants to die there and go to heaven or hell To the United States Minds zenty has become a frustrating diplomatic case with no solution in sight When negotiating for Mindszentys safe conduct to leave Hungary the State Department ran into a triple the Hungarian regime the Vatican and the Cardinal himself According to church sources the Vatican which disapproved the Cardinals decision to seek sanctuary in the legation after the revolt broke down now wants him to stay on so at least nom

President noted in his talk supporting Community Fund drives With 80 per cent of the quota now pledged in Mason City it will take strenuous effort by the solicitors to complete the task in the given time It Tipoff iven by JFK Preparation is ordered FROM OUR WIRE SERVICES WASHINGTON President Kennedy announced Thursday the United States is preparing to resume nuclear testing in the atmosphere if an evaluation shows recent Russian shots make such action necessary Informants said earlier that the sheer magnitude of the current Russian lest series will force the US to return to at mosphere tests if we are going to retain our nuclear lead In a special statement issued after an extended National Se curity Council meeting Ken nedy accused the Soviet Union of showing complete disre gard for the welfare of man kind by its current series of atmospheric shots He said the Soviet campaign of fear could not be dismissed as mere bluff and bluster and that the USSR atmospheric shots probably had proved of some value to Russian scien tists and military men Leading up to his announce ment that this country is pre paring testing if necessary Kennedy made two emphatic points as he spoke to reporters from his desk in the White House In evaluating total military strength the United States would not trade places with any nation on earth today The United States has a lead over Russia in nuclear weapons and docs not intend to lose it The President said any US atmospheric tests would be de signed to hold radioactive fall out to an absolute minimum He also said this country had no intention of exploding test weapons in the magnitude Rus sias 50megaton blast Speaking with emphasis as UN Ambassador Adlai E Stev enson watched from a corner of Kennedys cameracluttered of fice the President said this country also never would under take an atomic test as part of psychological warfare He said such tests would be held only when essential to the defense of the nation the protection of the free world and in the interest of necessary scientific and mili tary development Kennedy said he wanted the world to know he was ordering preparations for atmospheric tests Whether such tests arc fired he went on will depend on further scientific evaluation of the Soviet series plus the scientific and military needs of this country In this connection the Presi dent said Russia secretly pre
