(Studio) Vice Presidential candidate, General Curtis LeMay says lull occurred because enemy cut to pieces and retired to sanctuary.
REPORTER: Frank Reynolds

(DC) LeMay says he'd favor President if halt ordered. Doesn't see lull as justification for bombing halt. [LEMAY - says another offensive expected. If bombing stopped, it'll be larger and cost more casualties.] LeMay asked if he advocated military attack on Cuba during 1962 missile crisis, as written in report by Senator Robert F. Kennedy. [LEMAY - doesn't recall seeing President during crisis. Doesn't approve resolution of Cuban missile crisis. Could have gotten Communists& missiles out of Cuba.] Didn't propose military action against Cuba.
