Missiles in Cuba Wreck U.S. Theory By JOHN M. HIGHTOWER WASHINGTON (AP)—The Soviet Union's installation of nuclear missile s in Cuba caught U.S. experts by surprise and demolished, almost overnight, their carefully constructed estimate of Soviet strategy in the Western Hemisphere.

Intellect of Midwest Challenged KANSAS CITY (AP)-The pro- 'ost of Stanford University says he Midwest has had an almost anti-intelledtual atmosphere and .his ha s stunted its economic growth.

"The Midwest, has not been interested enough in 'developing competency in space, electronics and other types of research," he said. "The Chicago area, for instance, was a great center of' electrical equipment manufacturing before and during World War II. After the war, television sets apparently were enough for them, companies making money manufacturing television set s didn't invest in developing newer products. They had no interest In using Ph D.'s. "The rest of the Midwest was much the same. Now you don't see a great transistor industry, space industry or electronic computer industry here." One result, Dr. Term an satd, is the loss of people trained to high levels at Midwest schools. They go tQ the east or west coasts to find opportunities in science- oriented industries. The Midwest's lack of an alliance between industry and intellect is costing it much of its economic growth potential, he said. from the Soviet Union, the Ken nedy administration presumably is reassessing Soviet strategy nof only toward the Western Hemi sphere but also on a global scale There are several puzziing as pects to the Soviet action. One is that policy-makers in the Krem lin must have known that the presence of missiles in Cuba would be discovered almost a once. When the 'heavy buildup of arms in Cuba began last July the State Department repeatedly disclosed precise figures on missile bases, ships and fighter planes which were detected in the island. The Soviet government, furthermore, had given public and private assurances that the buildup was only for Cuban defensive purposes. It had boasted publicly that the Soviet Union did not need to base missiles outside its own territory to reach any target in the world, including the United States Some pf Hie best informed officials say privately it is difficult to make sense out of the Soviet behavior on the assumption that Premier Khrushchev still wants to achieve his goal s in the world short of nuclear war. One theory is that the Soviets may have made their Cuban move in connection with some larger KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) Rep. Robert F. Ellsworth scrapped prepared campaign speeches Tuesday to review the Cuban crisis and said he is confident the international situation will be stabilized considerably if the United States fully executes President Kennedy's quarantine policy. The Kansas Republican described himself as among the many who had urged a 'get- tough policy with Cuba for a long time. He predicted the U.S. position will win out—"assuming we continue and take action r'^ng the lini.3 of the President's speech." "This is a grave situation," he said, "and we should remember it probably will remain grave for days and probably weeks." Sirens Prove Not Too Satisfactory OLATHE, Kan.

CORNELL i Associated Prm Religion Writer' VATICAN CITY (AP)—Roman Catholic leaders are working to develop means of putting more inner vitality into the outer forms oi church life. This is a basic emphasis a s the Roman Catholic Ecumenical Council weighs extensive revisions in ritual and modes of worship. It also signals a central theme for the council in the months ahead. "We expect a spiritual renewal," the council said in its initial message. Such expressions have given a sort of evangelical tone- to this worldwide gathering of about 2,400 prelates. The accent is on internal rejuvenation, rather than external structure. The idea runs through many of the proposals facing the council. It is inherent in plans for harnessing the energies of laymen more fullv in the church's work. It is linked with moves to give more latitude to bishops in shaping policies in their own areas to meet specific human needs. It is associated with efforts to clear the way toward greater Cliristian unity. It Is an underlying factor in proposals for a broader interpretation of the Church as a spiritual organism, not bound entirely to institutional lines. It is a main objective of the remodeling of liturgical methods and aids to worship no under discussion, Council specialists said the pro- posed technical changes seek to draw people more actively, personally and intimately into fuller participation in the spiritual exercises. Some of the present practices and symbolic forms are "not understood by modern man," said the Rev. Edward Heston, of South Bend, Ind., a council consultant oa liturgy. Adjustments, he said, would simplify some of the customs, in order to draw people into closer inward Involvement. In regard fp the over-all work of the council, Bishop Charles It Helmsing of Kansas City-St. Joseph, Mo., noted: "Si- j the 16th century, the church '....s been careful to stress the church as a visible society with i hierarchy composed of the successors o'£- Pcter jind the apostles. ; "This, of course, was a reaction to the contention that t'. Churcli as Christ established it is entirely invisible and known to God alone. "Important as I think the traditional image of the Church is, even more important, I believe, is an appreciation of her inner life." . Cowboy Flanker Eyes Record By THE ASSOCIATED Don Hutson, Elroy Hirsch, Frank Clarke—Frank who??? Frank Clarke is the name. It may not ring a bell in your home town but it is a big name in Dallas. If the Cowboys' flanker back keeps-on catching passes it will be a big name coast-to-coast. In six .games Clarke has caught 11 touchdown passes. He still lias ejght games to go. Hutson sot the National Football League record of 17 for Green Bay in 1942. Hirsch tied it for Los Angeles in 1951 on a 12-game schedule. Clarke is another one of the men who got away from Paul Brown at Cleveland, like Bobby Mitchell. Placed on the draft list after three luckless years with the Browns, the former Colorado star wound uip in Dallas when the league expanded in 1960. 1SS | Clarke Is the leading scorer In the NFL with 66 points, passing idle Paul Hornung of Green Ba'y. In three years with the Browns he caught a total of 10 passes and. didn't score a point. "I wasn't happy to leave Cleveland," said Clarke in Dallas- "I felt I had left a great deal unfinished. But the more I thought I realized that Dallas was the Meal situation where I would have, more of a chance. "Eddie (LeBaron) worked with me and taught me tricks. So did Tom Landry, our coach. Now I go in there thinking I can catch them all." The Cowboys own a 3-2-1 record and are making serious gestures toward the title in the Eastern Conference. i CEILING HEATERS Todays Most Practical Bathroom Heaters Styled for Bright New Bathrooms RANGAIRE ELECTRIC ATHROOM HEATERS mMnalion radiant and forced air heating i:tc "Sniiray Rangaire.
