THE OTTAWA HERALD Thursday, January 24, 1963 ^ Claims Soviet Arms Still Going To Cuba WASHINGTON (AP) - Sen Wayne Morse has ordered an immediate Senate investigation into reports of a new round-the-clock Soviet military buildup in Cuba. State Department officials will be the first to appear before the Oregon Democrat's Latin-American Affairs subcommittee when the inquiry gets under way Saturday. A massive Soviet arms buildup in Cuba last year precipitated a major East-West crisis. But following an agreement with President Kennedy, Soviet Premier Khrushchev ordered the removal of offensive missiles and jet bombers and tensions eased. Since then the administration has maintained a reassuring attitude. Just two weeks ago Secretary of State Dean Rusk was quoted as having told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee he was convinced all Soviet missiles and bombers classed as offensive had been removed. By contrast, that very day Sen. Kenneth B. Keating, R-N.Y., contended that Prime Minister Fidel Castro is "10 times better equipped" militarily than he was last spring. The new flurry over Soviet arms in Cuba was capped Wednesday by a New York Times news service report that the Soviet Union is building "highly sophisticated ground and air defenses in Cuba." The gist of the Times story: Soviet encampments are being relocated and strengthened and Soviet experts are directing Cu- bans in the construction of underground depots, hangars and runways. Asked about the reports, State and Defense Department informants said military construction in Cuba is proceeding at a normal pace and is defensive in character. Keating said,, however, he has information "confirmed by official government sources" that Soviet weapons have been pouring into Cuba. He said they include MIG fighter planes and torpedo boats capable of carrying or firing nuclear weapons. Morse said he has no special knowledge about an arms buildup. "But, I'll certainly proceed to learn all I can," he told a reporter. Sen. Barry Goldwater. R-Ariz., said he will ask the Armed Services Committee, of which he is a member, to look into the situation. State and Defense Department officials contend Soviet arms supplied Cuba are at about the same level as at the beginning of the year. By these accounts, Castro's arsenal included more than 100 MIG fighters, 500 antiaircraft missiles at 24 sites, 40 coast defense missiles, about 350 medium and heavy tanks and 7,500 to 10,000 Soviet bloc trucks. The arms buildup report and scheduling of the Morse probe pushed to the background a rurv ninp debate over the disastrous 1961 Bay of Pigs invasion. Goldwater proposed Wednesday an investigation by the Armed Would Change Constitutions Services Committee. Chairman Richard B. Russell, D-Ga., said if military and defense issues— and not politics—are involved, the committee would look into them Goldwater and several other Republicans have charged the administration withdrew air cover support for the Cuban exile invasion forces. They took issue with Atty. Gen. Robert F. Kennedy's statement that no air cover was ever planned and therefore could not have been withdrawn. In other developments: Former President Dwight D. Eisenhower said in a television interview (CBS Reports) taped Monday at Palm Desert, Calif, that no air cover plan was drawn up during his administration. The Red Cross said in Miami it hopes to be able to announce today the sailing of the steamer Shirley Lykes from Havana with up to 1,000 refugees. It had been expected to leave Wednesday DOUBLE DUTY - A standard size bathtub, equipped with shower head and outboard motor, is shown under way in San Francisco Bay, skippered by pert Diane Herman.

Many boats have been called "tubs," but this is one of few times that tub qualifies as boat. night but was delayed. About 100 American and Cuban dependents arrived in Miami on a special flight. TOPEKA (AP)-Proposed constitutional amendments on both the national and state levels were introduced Wednesday in the Kansas Senate. On the national level, Kansas solons sought changes that would bar the federal government from intervening in state apportionment matters, and assure that future apportioning of the U. S. Senate would not cost Kansas one of its two seats. On the state level, a resolution was introduced to provide a short ballot for Kansas and four year terms for the governor, Lieutenant governor and attorney general. The other would provide for six- year terms for state senators beginning in 1069 and four year terms for state representatives beginning in 1967. Representatives now serve two years, senators four. At the first election following adoption of the amendment one third of the Senate would be elected for two years, one third for four years and one third for six years. After that all would be elected for six-year terms. Sen. Keith G. Seibelius, R-Norton, introduced a bill to put all of Kansas in the central time zone. A portion of extreme western Kansas now is on Mountain Standard Time. Sebelius said the bill, which had been requested by some western Kansans, would not affect railroads or other common carriers. Other bills introduced in the Senate would: Provide for the apportioning of income for tax purposes of a business operating in more than one state. Lift the property tax exemption from educational, religious and public buildings which are rented or leased to other interests. Permit two or more townships in the same state representative district to consolidate. Make public all meetings of state and local bodies supported by public funds.

An Ordeal In Stuck Elevator TOPEKA (AP) - Twenty-one prominent Kansans were trapped for 55 minutes Wednesday night in an automatic elevator near the 10th floor of the Jayhowk Hotel. "It was absolutely stifling in there, and we were jammed in so tightly we couldn't move," said Dr. James A. McCain, president of Kansas State University, was sure some were going to pass out before anyone could get to us. It seemed to me the situation was getting pretty desperate." An overload apparently caused the elevator to stall as it was carrying the party to a dinner meet ing of the Governor's Economic Development Committee. They were freed when an elevator company specialist arrived and operated manual safety gear which evened the lift with the 10th floor and opened the doors. Among the 21 were Lt. Gov Harold Chase and Dr. Raymond Doll, vice president of the Federa Reserve Bank of Kansas City, a principal speaker at the dinner. Also in the group were Dr. M. C. Cunningham, president of Fort Hays State College; Dr. James Surface, vice-chancellor of the University of Kansas; Dr. John Shupe, dean of the engineering school at Kansas State; Sen. John Murray of Leavenworth; Sen Keith Sibelius of Norton; Sen John Glades of Yates Center; Sen. William Ward of Marion; Rep Richard Vanlandingham of Kingman, Wendell Dawson, a Leavenworth contractor. Lt. Gov. Chase used an emergency telephone on the elevator to call the hotel switchboard for help. The Herald pays $5 every week for the best news tip turned in by a reader. TOCK YOU.?
