Rockets in Turkey For Missiles in Cuba MOSCOW (AP) — Soviet Premier Khrushchev told President Kennedy today he is ready to withdraw offensive weapons from Cuba if the United States will pull its rockets out of Turkey. In his message, as broadcast by Moscow radio, he asserted that all weapons now stationed in Cuba are under direct Soviet military control. He proposed that U Thant, acting secretary-general of the United Nations, act as agent in negotiating an agreement and that the United Nations itself act to guarantee compliance by sending inspectors to Cuba and Turkey. But, he added, any such agreement should be concluded in two or three weeiks — "certainly no more than a month."

Winter Still Two Momtihs Away Snow Blankets Northeast By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS , Portions of the Northeast and j northern Ohio began digging out from under more than a fo:>t of snow today, unleashed by an autumn storm that snarled traffic and caused hazardous highway j conditions. | Other parts of the nation shivered in near record low temperatures—and winter is still al-! most two months away. | The Northeast—specifk'all., the ; New York and New England areas—and northern Ohio were ! covered by up to 13 inches of snow. ; At least seven traffic deaths in | ! Now England were attributed to ' [unfavorable highmy conditions, i Several schools were closed and mammoth traffic jams were caused in northern Ohio, where 12 inches of snow pelted the area, mostly in the form, of snow squalls. The main traffic route Between Cleveland and Akron, U.S. 2B., was clogged for several hours Friday with an estimated 2,000-3,000 stalled cars. New York's rural snowbelts were exactly that as 13 inches covered the ground. Crisp cold weather accompanied the snow storms that covered parts of New England with 11 inches of snow. Clearing during the night and early morning brought relief to most areas and clear skies re- I placed the snow-laden clouds. But the cold snap that hit many areas Friday with record low tempera- I tures continued. . One of the coldest was the 15 i degrees in Elkins, W. Va. Ash- I ville, N.C., had 23, Raleigh 24 and Greensboro 25. London, Ky., reported 19 and even Florida was chilled 'with 33 degrees in Cross City and 35 in Tallahassee. The 30s and 40s were prevalent | elsewhere in the East with f >me 50s along the immediate Gulf | coast. The 40s and 50s spread j over the area west of the Mississippi and the COs were registered in Southern California and the , bulk of Texas. The Soviet premier atso suggested a declaration before the United Nations pledging Soviet noninterference in the internal affairs of Turkey, couple'. with a similar U.S. commitment ' on Cuba. His offer of a s -Turkish rockets for Cuban—was made in a message sent both to th c U.S. President and Thant. The message to K^..nedy was broadcast by Moscow radio. The Soviet premier made the offer to withdraw weapons from Cuba which the President considers offensive and would declare this pledge to the United Nations. He said it was unlair to expect the Soviet Union to withdraw weapons from Cuba when rockets on American bases in Turkey are pointed at thu Soviet Union. The Soviet premier said he is glad the President is agreeable to negotiating the present dispute, and said he thinks it perhaps wise if Thant would act as agent. He said he is glad the President has agreed to normalize the situation through talks and to avoid a confrontation of Soviet and American ships at sea in the blockade area. Khrushchev saki the Soviet Union is prepared to make a Declaration pledging noninterference in the internal affairs of Turkey if the United States will :nake a similar commitment on Cuba. He suggested the declarations be made in the United Nations. The Soviet leader said he believes it will not be dirjicult to get Cuba and Turkey to agree io permit United Nations inspection teams on their territories to police the dismantling of rocket bases. He said Soviet representatives would be sent to the United Nations with full instructions on concluding such an agreement. These negotiations, he added, should be concluded within two to three weeks—"certainly no more than a month."
