Menon was; the decision to replace Menon HAVANA (AP)—Acting Secretary-General U Thant scheduled a second meeting with Prime Minister Fidel Castro today to try to win agreement for U.N. verification of Moscow's promises to remove its missiles from Cuba. An initial two-hour, 10-minuite session between Thant and the bearded Cuban leader made no headway Tuesday, informants said. Castro reportedly stuck to such demands as abandonment by the United States of its Guantanamo naval base in southeasern Cuba. The United States already has rejected Castro's de- ntandsj made last weekend. He also demanded lifting of all economic measures against his regime and guarantees against hit-run raids and invasion preparations. Despite the reported lack of progress, a spokesman for Thant called th e meeting "very useful." A communique issued afterward said "Cuba fixed her position and viewpoints with clarity," which informants said meant Castro was unyielding in his demands. President Osvaldo Dorticos took part in the meeting. Tlie U.S. naval blockade re mained in suspension as Thant and Castro prepared for their second session. Thant asked that the blockade of offensive arms shipments to Cuba be lifted before Near Laki'n Wichita Man Killed, Two Hurt in Wreck LAKIN — A Wichita man was killed instantly and his wife and nephew injured in a one-car crash 7 miles west of Lakin on US50 at about 6 a.m. today.

Mrs. Harden suffered minor lacerations but was hospitalized for shock. The child suffered a broken leg and minor lacerations. Both are in Kearny County Hospital here. According to Highway Patrol Trooper Dick Elder, the Harden's were going to Alamos a, Colo; where they planned to visit Mrs. Harden's parents. Elder said Mrs. Harden lost control of the car when it went off the right shoulder of the highway. It crashed into a bridge abutment and overturned. The trooper said Harden died of head injuries.

In Washington, informants suid that although the blockade was suspended, the quarantine fleet of carriers, cruisers, destroyers and submarines was still on station but pulled into a more compact patrol area. The United States also suspended its aerial surveillance of Cuba to ease the atmosphere for the Thant-Castro meeting. Thant flew to Havana Tuesday to arrange for confirmation of the removal of the Soviet-iastalled missile bases under an ag r eement between Premier Khrushchev and President Kennedy. He' also is seeking to set up negotiations to resolve all aspects of the U.S.- Cuban dispute. He told Castro in a letter Sunday he hoped Ihe discussions would result in respect for Cuban sovereignty and in reassurance for other countries which have felt threatened by recent developments in Cuba. Havana radio said Castro will address the nation on radio and televisionf Thursday 1 "*'to analyze all tn e problems of the transcen dental moment in which the comr try is living." Thant is scheduled to return late today to New York, and ne gotiations for removal of the missiles are expected to open as soon as he gets back.
