No Evidence Of Arms Build up, Says JFK By FRANK CORMIER WASHINGTON (AP)-President Kennedy says evidence gathered through daily aerial scrutiny of Cuba fails to support reports of a massive new Soviet military buildup there. Kennedy told his news conference Thursday that the 16,000 to 17,000 Soviets still on the island "are exercising, building some barracks." And he said he knows of the arrival since the October crisis of only one Soviet ship that might have carried arms or other military cargo. "There is no evidence that this ship carried any offensive weapons," he said. In a session laced with foreign policy talk, Kennedy focused on the need for Western unity. He said it was not in the interest of the alliance for France to base its desire for an independent nuclear force "on the grounds that the United States would fail to defend Europe by whatever means are necessary." As for French President Charles de Gaulle, Kennedy said, "I would hope that our confidence in him would be matched by his confidence in us." The prime domestic topic of his call for a three-year tax cut of $13.6 billion to be partly offset by |3.4 billion of revenue-raising changes in special tax benefits. Kennedy strongly implied he wants a first-step rate cut of $3.2 billion to go into effect this year- even if Congress puts aside proposed benefit revisions until a later date. "We will just have to wait and see whether both can be done this year," he said. "In any case, we should be able to make progress, come what may, on the first step of the three-stage reduction." Even as he expounded policy that could affect the nation's future tax history, Kennedy tried to clarify a bit of past history: The cloudy story of "air cover" for the U.S.-backed Cuban invasion of April 1961. This was prompted by challenges thrown at a weekend statement by the President's brother, Atty. Gen. Robert F. Kennedy, that no U.S. air cover ever was contemplated. This statement seemingly contradicted long-standing reports that the President canceled planned air cover. Kennedy attributed the confusion to loose use of the phrase "air cover." He said his brother's statement was correct because the United States at no time planned to use its own planes to fly missions over the invasion beach. But he said there was talk about an air strike by Cuban refugee pilots flying from basis outside the United States and that this "did not work out." He described this as "one of the failures" of the invasion. Other major topics touched on by Kennedy included: Nuclear Tests — Khrushchev's recent acceptance of the principle of on-site inspection is "very important" and the possible forerunner of a breakthrough in nuclear test ban negotiations. Meredith—If James Meredith withdraws from the University of Mississippi, "that is a loss not only to Mr. Meredith, but I think the university." Although curtailment of violence and protection of the Negro student cost the federal government 4 million, Kennedy said it "would have been far more expensive" had the Negro been physically attacked or denied admission by force. Newspaper Strikes — Kennedy wishes for an early end to newspaper strikes in Cleveland and New York. In the case of the New York walkout, he hopes both sides will "reach the compromise which ultimately they are going to reach anyway." Sunday School Lesson Man Doesn't Grow Without Cultivation By ROY L. SMITH The Uniform Sunday School lesson for January 27: "WHY JESUS TAUGHT IN PARABLES," Mark 3:7 through 4:34. . It is easy for most of us to pass judgment on other people; it is an altogether different matter when we attempt to pass judgment on ourselves. Yet, in spite of ourselves, and w i t h o u t realizing it, we do that very thing every hour of every day. When we choose the good instead of the best, when we laugh at an j unclean jest, when we ignore an opportunity, ' SMITH and when we resist all the temptations to be splendid, we are rendering an unconscious judgment which we might deny, or repudiate, if we were compelled to face it. This week's Sunday School lesson has been used as the starting point for thousands of sermons directed at the sowers. Actually, however, Jesus' interest in the story originated in his concern about the soils. Without being aware of it, perhaps, each of us decides what kind of soil he is to become. By absenting ourselves from cultural interests we become barren culturally. By ignoring sports we become indifferent to athletic champions. By allowing ourselves to be absorbed with money-making, we increase the intellectual and spiritual barrenness of our lives. Charles Darwin, the great scientist, was passionately fond of music as a youth. And as a musical performer he was considerably above the average. But as he became more and more engrossed in scientific research, he became less and less involved in musical affairs. Toward the close of his life even the finest concert had become a terrible bore to him. He had changed the character of the soil! A highly successful, and alto- More People Buy WURLITZER PIANOS than any other make BUTLER'S gether personable, business man was being solicited to go out in behalf of his church in an effort to win some converts. "I'm sorry, preacher," he said. "That is something I just can't do. I can't argue religion with any one," "That," his pastor replied, "is exactly the reason I want you to go on this mission. I don't want you to argue. I can get plenty of people who will do that. "I want someone who will tell, simply and honestly what the effect of good religion has been on his life. If you will tell the story of what a difference your faith has made, I will trust the message to get results." It is not the business of the sower to respond to the seed. His responsibility has ended when he has made sure that it is good seed, and then he has scattered it. The basic message of this Christian faith is a very simple .one. There is divine help available to any man, no matter how difficult his way of life may be. That an extremely heavy responsibility, rests upon the preacher, goes without saying. It is a very solmen thing when one man stands before a hundred men, and asks them to listen to him for 30 minutes. But the responsibility of the hearer is just as heavy. To have a need, to listen to one who has a remedy for that need, and to go out indifferent to or actually unconscious of the significance of that which was said, — this is a crime committed against one's own soul. A highly skilled physician, who had been asked to address a crowd on the subject of an epidemic then raging in the community, explained the case very carefully, described the methods to be used in protecting one's self- against the plague, and made suggestions as to how to prevent the spread of the disease. At the close of the address he answered questions for 20 minutes, explaining points that had been unclear. Then, as he turned to go, he said, "From this point on, my friends, it is up to you! I have given you the facts. You know. Now you will have to take the necessary action." No soil ever produces up to capacity if it is not cultivated. No one of us ever grows without cultivating one's self.

(AP)-A helpful act, performed three years ago by an 11-year-old rural St. John boy, has not been forgotten by a man from Cedar Rapids, Iowa. A stranger knocked at the door of the M.D. Long home south west of St. John recently and asked Mrs. Long if they had lived there three years. When Mrs. Long assured him they had, the man handed her a package, saying it was a gift for her son, Jerry. He explained that three years ago, while driving from Cedar Rapids to Phoenix, Ariz., he had car trouble on U.S.50 near the Long home. Jerry Long, getting off a school bus, offered to help and got a pail of water for the car's radiator. The motorist continued his trip. Mrs. Long said she was so surprised she neglected to get the man's name. Jerry's gift was a shirt. 'Honest John' Gives Up, $5 NEWTON, Kan. (AP)-A letter from Florida, signed "Honest John," has been delivered to Carl Hedrick of Newton, easing Honest John's conscience. The letter contained $5. The man wrote that he was helping raze Kansas City's old post office in the early 1930s and found behind a baseboard a letter addressed to Hedrick. The man kept $5 that was in the envelope. "I don't remember who sent the money," the man wrote. "All I have now is a piece of paper that is hard to read as I have kept it in my pocket."

Cashier Member Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation Plan 18 Orbits For Astronaut By VERN HAUGLAND WASHINGTON (AP)-Astronaut Leroy Gordon Cooper Jr. may begin his orbital flight—the longest and perhaps the last in Project Mercury—on April 2. The Air Force major may remain aloft for 18 orbits—about 27 hours—and come down in the Atlantic north of Puerto Rico. Or, if all goes well, he may achieve 22 orbits—about 34 hours—and descend into the Pacific near Midway Island. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration is not announcing launch dates this far in advance. An informed source said, however, that April 2 has been considered for planning purposes The Mercury series is to be fol- lowed by two-man Gemini launches starting early next year. They are preliminary to later three- man Apollo craft missions to the moon. Cooper's flight may not be the Mercury finale. There has been some discussion of modifying a Mercury capsule to make it capable of supporting a man for a three to five day flight later this year. Physicians expect Sooper to sleep in two four-hour installments —one eight to 10 hours after launch, and again after another working shift of eight to 10 hours. A buzzer signal from a ground station would make sure that he was awake for at least the las' two or three orbits of the mission Warnock, with Mrs. Leroy Todd assisting. Mrs. Warnock presided at a short business meeting. Guest speaker was Mrs. Charles Pierce who explained to the group about ratifying the charter of racial policies. Devotions were given by Mrs. Bill Kyle. Refreshments were served to 16 members and three guests. Mr. and Mrs. David Sturm and family attended funeral services at Carthage, Mo., and graveside services at the Wellsville Cemetery Saturday for her sister, Mrs. Anna Kinney, formerly of Wellsville.

Record Soybean •V Stocks WASHINGTON (AP)-The Agriculture Department reported stocks of feed grains on Jan. 1 were 5 per cent below the level of a year earlier but soybean stocks were at a record high.

The inventory of major grains stored on and off farms: Wheat — 1.81 billion bushels, down 9 per cent. Corn—4.43 billion bushels, down 6 per cent. Sorghum grain — 1.02 billion bushels, down 1.7 per cent. Soybeans—527.69 million bushels, up 1.4 per cent.
