    Background: A CROWD OF 5,000 DEMONSTRATED OUTSIDE THE UNITED NATIONS HEADQUARTERS IN NEW YORK YESTERDAY (SUNDAY) IN A MASS PLEA FOR A PEACEFUL SETTLEMENT OF THE CUBAN CRISIS.

    THE DEMONSTRATION WAS STAGED A FEW HOURS AFTER THE SOVIET PREMIER, MR KHRUSHCHEV, PROMISED TO WITHDRAW RUSSIAN MISSILES - CRUX OF THE DISPUTE - FROM CUBA. WHILE NOTING THIS EASING OF TENSION, DEMONSTRATORS VOICED DEMANDS FOR NEGOTIATIONS TO SETTLE THE CRISIS WITHOUT RESORT TO WAR.

    ABOUT 300 ANTI-CASTRO CUBANS, URGING AN INVASION OF THEIR COUNTRY BY U.S. FORCES, TRIED TO PUSH THEIR WAY INTO THE PEACE RALLY, BUT WERE HELD BACK BY POLICE.
