of Buiganin Proposal Predicted at Capita I WASHINGTON officials predicted Saturday a polite rejection of Russias proposal for a new approach to dis armament including a cutback in Russian and Western armed forces in Germany Soviet Premier Nikolai Buiganin made the proposal in a letter to President Eisenhower which the White House made public Friday night Moscow radio also broadcast it Eisenhower if he is well enough and Secretary of State Dulles are expected to discuss the Buiganin maneuver with West German Chancellor Adenauer when visits Washington next week The United States will also consult with Britain and France on the move officials indicated The outcome of these talks dition lowever was considered to be a foregone conclusion as far as the reply to Buiganin is concerned

President to join in this new approach on unin spected individual action by the powers expressing hope that an initiative of the great powers along the lines he suggested would be of decisive import ance in leading to the creation of conditions more favorable for a universal disarmament pro gram proposal that the full Com About The Weather Mason City Fair and quite warm through Sunday Lows Satur
