In apparent response to stated fears that nuclear war might be set off unnecessarily by trigger- happy response to small-scale aggression, ,the President stressed U.S. determination to keep all it own forces under high command control at all times. The aim, Kennedy wild, is to make deterrent strength "do what we wish, neither more nor less." Kennedy made his pledges in an address prepared for a meet ing of the NATO military com rnittee. "NATO needs to be able to re i spond to any conventional attack with conventional resistance which will be effective at least long enough, in Gen. Norstad's phrase, to force a pause," Kennedy said. ; He was referring to Gen. I<au-1 rls Norstad, supreme commander! of NATO forces in Europe. "To this end," the President said, "we ourselves mean to' maintain our own divisions and! supporting units in Europe and to increase their conventional capa-i biliries." Kennedy made no specific mention of differences within NATOi over control and use of nuclear! weapons. France, for example, j has wanted a bigger voice in thisj field. : Referring to a speech Britain's Prime Minister Harold Macmillan made last week at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Kennedy said Macmillan had pointed out the urgency of this control matter. "The United States," Kennedy pledged, "means to do its full share in working toward a good solution of the problem, and we believe that the clarity and firm- BOARD mmm EICHMANN IN CELL 4 With Burglary Alton police have solved six burglaries dating back to Feb. 28 with (he arrest of four persons ranging in agr? from 17 to 20.

Krassik and the other 69 Jews opened the graves, ground up the bones, and scattered the fragments over the fields. Other Witnesses The other 26 witnesses — those who did not meet Eichmann in person — presumably will testify to various actions with which they had first-hand experience and for which he is held accountable. Eichmann's chief counsel is Dr. Robert Servatius, 66, a widely known West German lawyer. He says he has not yet decided whether he will put Eichmann on the stand. Servatius also said he has not yet made up his mind about cross-examining the state's Diem Wins Viet Nam Election By JOHN GRIFFIN SAIGON, South Viet Nam (AP) — Pro-Western President Ngo Dinh Diem won re-election by an even bigger margin than expected today as voters reejcted Communist attempts to sabotage South Viet Nam's first democratic-style national election. The 60-year-old bachelor presi den polled well over 80 per cent of the vote cast and showed his greatest strength in the hotbed of Red rebel terrorism—the swamps and ricelands of the Mekong River delta southwest of Saigon. He racked up better than 90 per cent of the vote in this region. The Sunday voting apparently went off peacefully, without a single major incident. One grenade throwing and an ambush — with no casualties — were reported in the south. Officials estimated about 70 per cent of the nation's 7.2 million voters cast ballots Sunday after a campaign marked by increasing terrorist attacks by the Viet Cong Communists. One official said the Communists had suffered serious losses in clashes with government forces in the last two weeks and now they had lot face by failing to carry out their threat to sabotage (the election.

He suggested either Stanleyville or the Ethiopian capital of Addis Ababa. In Leopoldville, the Congolese army expressed formal regret for two attacks on U. S. Embassy personnel Sunday at a roadblock 20 miles out of the capital. They promised immediate disciplinary action against Congolese soldiers who hit an American and tore the American flag off an embassy car. Tom Rodda of Alexandria, Va.,. visual aids officer for the U.

Rodda's wife, Frances Irma, and their son, David Lee, 14, were also forced out of the car but were not touched. >, Tear Off Flag Later at the same roadblock the. soldiers tore the flag off a car driven by the acting deputy chief of the U.

In Elisabethville, the Katanga government told the United Nations it was sorry about a shooting at Kabalo last Friday in which a U. N. Ethiopian soldier was killed. Associated Press correspondent Errol Friedmann was kicked out oi Katanga Sunday by the government after being told that President Moise Tshombe did not like stories written about him.

School administrators believe that a Careers Night is a valuable aid in guiding students into fields for which they are best suited to earn their livings. This year the correspondence committee of the event secured a speaker for any career in which at least 10 students indicated as their first or second choices. This usually results in a top heavy audience for such glamour careers such as air line ostesses, pilots and models.
