Mansfield And Humphrey Defend JFK Cuban Policy By JACK BELL WASHINGTON (AP)-Thc Kennedy administration, under heavy fire from its political opponents, is striking back at Republican critics of its Cuban policies. In the face of a fresh assault by GOP congressional leaders on "the inept conduct of our foreign affairs by the Kennedy administration," Sens. Mike Mansfield, D-Mont., and Hubert H. Humphrey, D-Minn., have teamed to condemn what they called partisan and irresponsible charges. Mansfield, the Democratic leader, pointed his guns at New York Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller and Sens. Kenneth B. Keating, R-N.Y. and Hugh Scott, R-Pa. He told the Senate Monday that "irresponsible public utterances are playing dangerously with the fires of public emotion." Humphrey called on Republicans to make certain that "a rash of charges that cannot be substantiated by facts do not find their way into this chamber" or into the newspapers. "The people are worried, con cerned and indeed confused because of so many conflicting re ports," he said. He added that President Kennedy, the Defense Department and the Central Intel ligence Agency "have been frank and candid" in disclosing Soviet military strength in Cuba. Mansfield said Rockefeller wa well informed on Latin American affairs, but, "I must confess that I looked in vain for a contribution worthy of him" in the governor' comments on Cuba. Rockefeller has said the admin istration's disclosures about Cub; eft many unanswered qustions. le said that while Soviet soldiers and equipment- there may not >ose a military threat to the United States, they constitute a propaganda, subversive and possible military threat to other hem- sphere nations. • Mansfield flatly denied — as Scott had suggested — that there was any deal between Soviet Premier Khrushchev and Kennedy or the removal of American missiles in Europe in exchange for he withdrawal of Soviet missiles n Cuba. In a barb patently aimed at Keating, one of the most vocal critics of the administration, Mansfield told his colleagues he would be the last to suggest that members of Congress know less about matters pertaining to Cuba than the President, the Secretary of State and the Secretary of De- 'ense. "But I would suggest most respectfully," he said, "that the responsible course which helps rater than hurts the nation would »e for these well-informed members to take their inside, unimpeachable information on Cuba to the appropriate departments at the same time that they take it to the press galleries."

(AP) - Thousands of persons have driven into the area north of Attica for a look at a mysterious crater spewing natural gas and salt water as high as 60 feet in the air in the middle of a rural road. The crater was discovered Thursday morning. It has gradually enlarged to a diameter of about 50 feet. Water from the crater was first fresh, but has been getting saltier. Thursday afternoon the salt content measured 18 per cent. By Saturday it had reached 58 per cent indicating the flow was from a great depth. Kansas Corporation Commission officials have organized a search for plugged, abandoned oil wells to determine whether one has ruptured and allowed the gas to escape through the earth. Oil companies also are checking their wells in the area to see whether any casings might have broken. The nearest producing well is about a quarter-mile from the crater. About 10 craters, ranging from a few inches to 12 feet in diameter, appeared south of the main crater Thursday and Friday but subsided Saturday. Residents of Attica are worried that fissures in underground strata may allow their deep water wells about a mile north ot the crater to become contaminated.
