The Russians warned they would not permit this.

The Soviet reply renewed the threat of more interference with Allied troop convoys on the 110-mile lifeline highway between West Berlin and West Germany. The Allies insist they have the right to move on the autobahn as they like. Claims Untenable Divers Hunt Missing U2 Pilot in Gulf KEY WEST, Fla.
