Tivo Major 7/s' Hang in Balance on Khrushchev Cuba Promise By JAMES MARUOW Associated P *!ews Analyst WASHINGTON (AP)-Th e absence of public gloating by the Kennedy administration over Premier Khrushchev's retreat on Cuba is understand^-! ihere could be worse than Khrushchev. There arc l,wo 'o'hcv good reasons for something less than wild rejoicing.' Khrushchev still ha:, to make good on his promise to pull his missiles out of Cuba; and the (rouble with Fide Castro hasn't been settled at all. If right now there is Kre..,lin conflict over the Soviet blunder and embarrassment in Cuba, open •glee by American offu' 's might be enough to tip the scales in favor of Khrushchev's tougher- line opponents and thus wreck him. Over the years hp has made noise, been a pain in the neck, and often been dangerous. But Because he was more human and flexible than Stalin, '.ic was an improvement on the old tyrant. For exairiple: When Stalin got the notion to drive the Allies out of Berlin, he blockaded the city. This eventually failed, but it could have meant war. Khrislchev wantg to seal off Berlin, too, but he has stalled for four years in trying it. If Khrushchev should lose out 1 now in a power struggle because of his backdown in Cuba, it seems certain his successor would be a hard-nosed Communist more like Stalin than Khrushchev. It was sheer clumsiness for me Soviet Union to put missiles in Cuba and not be prepared for something more impressive than a complete cave-in if the United States forced a showdown, as it did. Once King of the Mat Wars Memories Linger For Wakefield Man By HAROLD ROSISKA The Clay Center Dispatch CLAY CENTER. Kan. (AP) — Time takes its toll but memories of a fabulous mat carreer linger on for Alan Eustace, 71-year-old retired Wakefield, Kan., wrestler. For more than a third of a century, Eustace met top-flight wrestlers. He wrestled in many cities in 44 states as well a s in several foreign countries. An injury at an early age probably turned the course of his future from that of a farm boy to a career that brought him recognition as heavyweight king of the mat. DeGaulle to Stay in Office PARIS (AP)—President Charles de Gaulle announced today he will remain at the helm of the French government even though only about 47 per cent of France's registered voters backed him in a referendum last Sunday. He Lad a majority of those who did vote, however. De Gaulle, anxious for a showdown with the nation's politicians, had said he would resign if the results of the referendum were "weak, mediocre or doubtful." But he did ot specify the minimum vote that would keep _ him in office. The referendum approved a constitutional amendment proposed by De Gaulle to provide for election of presidents by direct vote of the people. All of the nation's politicians except Gaullists contended he had violated the constitution by not presenting his amendment first to Parliament for approval. In the vote, 61.76 per cent of the valid ballots were cast in favor of De Gaulle's proposal. Due to stay- at-homes and other abstainers, hte yes vote represented only 46.3 per cent of the registered voters. De Gaulle's backing in previous referendums had never been less than 56 per cent of the electorate. Burglars Have Good Average at Tavern NEW ORLEANS, La. (AP)Duke W. Pailet says he wants to sell his Klondike Inn because "I'm tired of working just for burglars and the hired help." Paiiet told police burglars broke into his establishment Sunday night and took $1,213 in liquor and cash. He said it was the 19th burglary at his place in 18 years for a total loss of more than 842,000. vUetcome JeacnerS A New Fine China Pattern by Lenox ($or/»e//e by LENOX— A wreath of shadow roses in the contemporary colors of soft toned sepias, surrounded by the carved elegance of the Sculpture shape.

BR 6-3501 Garden City, Kansas That there Is conflict in the Kremlin over this blunder seems likely. Obvious confusic- and indecision showed up in the contradictory messages Khrushchev sent President Kennedy before j finally giving in. Just because an internal Soviet I leadership struggle may be go^ i ing on now, Khrushchev's prom- j ise to take his missiles back home I can't be accepted as fact until he actually does it. This is sufficient reason for the Kennedy administration to keep its fingers crossed until the missiles are gone. Khrushchev has handled Castro in all this as if he were a nobody. Yet, just because the Soviet Un-: nion has been his main source of j supplies and his only real hope of j survival, Castro can hardly afford a break with Khrushchev. ( The Russian made no p omises to keep Castro quiet. And Castro hasn't been. So long as he bosses Cuba h c will be a menace to the rest of the Latin American countries through the internal trouble he can create for them. While Kennedy promised—if l"ne missiles were withdrawn—that the United States would not invade Cuba, this did not say this country and other American republics would not work for his downfall. Their problem Is how, without a direct American invasion. Yet, they can't sit idly by wh'Ie Castro, through his agents and local Communists, tries to wreck one Latin American country after another. Since Castro couldn't survive without Soviet supplies—for instance, oil—then any * i version he attempts against his neighbors must be considered Soviet subver- Paqe 16 Garden City Telegram Wednesday.

A partial paralysis resulted ; from the injury, leaving one leg j larger below the knee than above, j Following a doctor's advice, Eustace turned to wrestling as a means of speeding and aiding recovery. How well the limb responded is shown by the fact Eustace became famous for his leg scissors—a hold that broke the ribs of an opponent in the early stage of his career. Quickly mastering community competition, Eustace moved to his first main event on a card at Wakefield at the age of 15. His first match away from home was at nearby Ft. Rilcy, a match arranged by Lt. George S. Patton who became famous as a general in World War II. Eustace received $25 for disposing of his opponent in about six minutes. Declared Kansas champion at the age of 39, Eustace moved on to Omaha, Lincoln, Kansas City, Chicago and Columbus, Ohio. Then it was on to Philadelphia, Boston and New York's Madison Square Garden. Standing 6 feet 3 and weighing from 225 to 238 pounds during j most of his career, Eustace was ! headlined on cards al] over the! nation. Among name wrestlers he met were Jim Londos. Strangler Lewis, Tommy Doctor, the Great Zbyszko. Orville Brown, Charley Peterson, Texas Lou Plummer and John Pesek. The only states in which he did not wrestle were Arizona, New Mexico, Montana and Oregon. He competed in Australia, New Zealand and Canada. Of the wrestlers met in his 34 years of competition, Eustace rates Pesek a s the greatest. The 183 - pound Pesek and Eustace headlined matches in many cities and were billed as John Pesek, the Nebraska Tiger, and Alan Eustace, the Kansas Cornstalk. Two extremes stand out in Eustace's experience. One was the shortest match of 'his career and the other the longest. In a match against a wrestler known as "The Blimp," Eustace won in five sec. onds. The Blimp tipped the scales at 580 pounds. Eustace simply sidestepped the huge man's dive and the Blimp landed on the floor out of the ring—out cold. In the longest match, Eustace and Jim Londos put on a 3Mj hour marathon at Junction City. It was during the roaring twen- \ ties that the New York Athletic I Commission named Eustace world's heavyweight wrestling j champion. Today, Eustace, his wife and a daughter reside in Wakefield, where as a hobby they operate the Dachill Kennels. They have 40 miniature and standard dachshunds.
