there had been any conquering Not a stick or a stone has been moved Take this assurance from an Iowa editor who arrived here just three hours after what only Russian newspa perscould describe as a tu multous welcome HERE I SHOULD explain that my mission here had nothing whatever to do with the visiting Russians I am on a fivemember committee to designate Americas safety man of the arrival while Khrushchev was here was a coincidence Washingtonians turned out in sizable numbers to see the Russian premier but there was a conspicuous v i s i b le reaction Observers agree that Blair House heard more applause for himself than he had heard for Khrushchev along the en tire parade route with Khrushchev Anybody hearing but not seeing his performance at the National Press Club Wednes day could have gained the im pression there was a good bit enthusiasm Those on the scene however sensed that the noise was exclusively from his own cohorts at the n d they were there in large numbers Khrushchev even joined in the applause himself Its assumed that the be havior of those who have had contact with the Communist spokesman here in our na tional capital will be a prece dent and model for crowds at ether points on itinerary including Iowa It has been a notable example of disciplined democracy Our Russian visi tors must be impressed by it MY HOTEL overlooks the Press Club and my strolls have

Khrushchev boarded his train Thursday morning for New York and the there was agreement that he had offered no suggestion of a course of action designed to reduce tension between Rus sia and the free

WASHINGTON WVPresident Eisenhower said Thursday his talks with Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev have ly friendly but it is too early to whether the Kremlin leader las changed his mind on any world issues The President told a news conference that Khrushchevs manner and deportment indicate he really is trying to reach agreement regarding interna tional problems This was Eisenhowers first meeting with newsmen since his one hour and 45 minute formal conference with the Soviet chief Tuesday and his talks with Khrushchev at social events THE question put to he President was whether he sees any concrete evidence on the basis of the talks that Khru shchev may have changed his position on international issues Eisenhower replied that it is Still a little bit early to go into detail or come to any conclu sions on that matter He went on to however that Khru shchevs general attitude has been extremely friendly Eisenhower and Khrushchev will meet again Sept 2427I for another round of talks at

of general position egarding the issues A BIT LATER at the newt onference Eisenhower made t clear that such specific prob ems as West Berlin and the Communist drive in Laos cer ainly will be on the Camp David agenda As for the public reception Chrushchev received in Wash ngton Eisenhower remarked hat the crowds did show what e termed reservation He indi ated he feels that was to be xpected in view of the differ nces between the United States nd Russia on specific prob ems and general government nlosophy A major part of the 30minute news conference was devoted to the Khrushchev visit and re lated matters But the President also dealt with these other topics CONGRESS By and large Eisenhower said a great deal of good was accomplished dur ing the justadjourned first ses sion of the 86th Congress con trolled by the Democrats But the President did cut oose with some sharp criticism also called it unfortunate hat control of the government still is divided between the Re publicans and the Democrats Eisenhower spoke out most harply in discussing what he called the refusal of Congress to luthorize removal of interest eiling on long term govern ment bonds That refusal he eclared was one of the most erious things that has hap ened in a long time Eisenhower was asked about tie possibility of his calling Congress back for a special ses ion on the interest rate issue le replied it is
