troubling us NEW YORK W President Eisenhower attended his first World Series game Wednesday and got a rising roaring wel come from thousands of base ball fans crammed into Brook lyns Ebbets Field Obviously enjoying his out ing immensely Eisenhower broke out his famed grin and waving hands But along the 15 mile route from LaGuardia Airport to the ball park where the New York Yankees and Brooklyn Dodgers tangled in the first game of the Series crowds were skimpy Of course the White House had advertised the Presidents flight to New York and the ball game as a nonpoliHcal affair But italso had advertised the route he was taking to and from the park In some places only knots of people were out In others none at all mainly along the Queens parkways They thick ened in Brooklyn Many of those who did turn out cheered Eisenhower wildly And he responded by standing up in the back of a special bubbletop car brought up from Washington to flash the grin get the arms going and yell back greetings himself At the ball field the Presl dent drove through the center field gate directly onto the green carpeted field and rode down the third base line to home plate The game started after Ike threw out the first ball It later was returned to him as a sou venir Shepilov Offers Optimistic Note FROM OUR WIRE SERVICE w LONDON UP Moscow Radio said Wednesday that Rus sia and Yugoslavia are get ing closer together in its first report on relations between the two nations since the Yugoslav president went to the Soviet Un ion last week The broadcast backed up di plomatic reports from Commu nist East Europe that Russia is attempting to win Titos sup port for its strong new pene tration of the Middle East It praised Yugoslav support of Egypts takeover of the Suez Canal The broadcast did not mention Tito nor the Soviet leaders by name but it quoted an editor ial in Pravda the official Com munist Party organ which said Recently the fear of unset tled and unclear questions in relations between the Yugoslav League of Communists and oth er fraternal Communists and workers parties has narrowed considerably and is continuing to shrink still At the same time coopera tion is growing in the broadcast added Fresh diplomatic dispatches received in London from Com munist East Europe said the Kremlin needs Titos support in the Middle East because Yugoslavia provides the Com munist blocs only direct out let on the Mediterranean Sea According to the latest ap praisal Russia has decided to hold and enlarge its foothold in the Middle East and has op ened a new cold front in the area But that foothold is still weak and pending to a great extent on Egypts continued cooperation with the Soviet Union This is where Tito is consid ered the key to Russias entry into the Middle East diplomatic sources said since Russia would like to move through Yugo slavia Russia apparently impatient and in a hurry was reported anxious to obtain clarification of the Yugoslav position before embarking on its Middle East campaign Diplomatic sources said Tito aJso plays a key role in Rus sias efforts to tie the other satellites of East Europe into a tight little package and that Titos cooperation may prove decisive for the success or fail ure of Moscows policy plans The Red Army has reportedly insisted on a belt of friendly reliable and not merely neutral nations between the Soviet and West Europe as a socalled glacis clear field for any military eventuality But this can be safeguarded in the Kremlins view and notably in the view of the emerging Stalintype including former Foreign Minister Vyacheslav M Molotov by firming up the ideological ties with the satellites Always Behind The Eisenhower administra GIRL ON A LEDGE Mary Jane Holland Staten Island N freshman stands
