As Kennedy left Europe after a 10-day visit to sell the plan, and West Germany awaited a visit from French President Charles De Gaulle, the Bonn cabinet split on the issue so crucial to the future of the Western alliance. Economic Cooperation Minister Walter Scheel, a leading member of the Free Democrats-who form the coalition with government Chancellor Konrad Adenauer's Christian Democrats, said .^lies- day he thought ah in best Others Share View Informed sources said ' other Free Democratic ministers share Scheel's view. Free Democrats F form one-fourth of the cabinet and have provided plenty of evidence they could bring down the government if they wished. Scheel echoed De Gaulle's worry that Europe cannot depend forever on the United States for protection against Communist aggression. Adenauer's government is on record as supporting Kennedy's plan for a multilateral, mixed- manned seaborne nuclear missile force within the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. Defense Minister Kai-Uwe von Hassel says it is necessary to insure the Americaas can never withdraw from Europe. major speech in East Berlin. Kennedy met for an hour this morning to assess all the implications of the address, in an effort to determine how much might be simply propaganda and how much might represent an opening for an East-West accord. Among those who talked things over with the chief executive this morning — and were told to come back at 4 p.m. for a second round Deputy Secretary of State Averell Harriman, a former ambassador to Moscow; Undersecretary of State George Ball; Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara; William C. Foster, head of the government's disarmament agency, and his deputy, Adrian S. Fisher. They sat with Kennedy just ahead of a Cabinet meeting which was billed in advance as a discussion largely on domestic affairs. The sessions followed by only a little more than nine hours Kennedy's return from his 10-day, four-nation swing around Europe. Doctor to End Appeal From Tax Conviction CHICAGO (AP) - Dr. Maurice S.

Mrs. Radke appeared before the NEA convention to deliver the traditional greetings from the school boards. The "greetings," however, were more in the nature of a polite but firm knuckle- rapping.

Forty- seven of the refugees were American citizens, the Red Cross reported. For the first time in nine such voyages, the refugees crowded the decks of the grey-hulled ship as it pulled alongside the wharf, cheering, waving hats and hander- kerchiefs and shouting "Viva United States." Then the crowd burst into segments of the Cuban national anthem. The freighter gave several blasts of its whistle to add to the clamor of the gay scene.

The note, which was released earlier in Peking, dealt with the Soviet expulsion of three Chinese diplomats and two students for circulating in Moscow a harsh attack on Russian . „. Calls Action "Unfounded" Calling the Soviet action ''untenable and unfounded," the Chinese note accused the Soviet Union of deliberately trying to worsen relations between the two countries virtually on the eve of the Moscow talks aimed at healing their ideological and political split. Until now the Kremlin has said nothing about the expulsion of the Chinese, leaving the nouncement to Peking, Diplomatic observers said dis* tribution of tho note by the Chinese under the nose of the Kremlin was certain to cloud the atmosphere for the talks. Not Backing Dow The Soviet Union indirectly served notice today it will not back down in the face of Peking's belligerent line toward other Communist countries and tho West. Premier Nikita Khrushchev was reported to have congratu* lated Marshal Tito upon his re* cent confirmation to the presl* dency of Yugoslavia. One of the basic conflicts in the Sino-Soviet rift is the Chinese W an demand that Russia break with Yugoslavia, which Peking accuses of "consorting with the imperialists" and betraying the international Communist movement.
