Ihe Southern United States Racial prejudice in the Soviet Union is greater than any where in and a great many African are leav ing because of it he says The former vice president discussed his impressions of the Soviet Union Thursday nighl in a departure from his prepared speech before 400 business lead ers at the National Industrial Conference Boards first public affairs conference Nixon whocontrasted his re cent visit to the one he made six years ago as vice president said there has been a great growth in racism and prejudice He said there is DO single leader in Russia today following the ouster of Premier Nikita Khrushchev Only 1 man in 25 he questioned acknowledged Khrushchevs existence he said He predicted a strong leader will soon emerge and Russia then will begin a new challenge to the United States in econom ics He said the challenge will not be military or in thc field of space and predicted the Soviets will attempt lo dominate the world by means short of war Nixon who spent one day in the Soviet Union said the eco nomic picture is somewhat brighter than he found it six years ago In his prepared speech Nixon Americans are developing a healthy skepticism about tha usefulness of big government modern society He said scholars are discov ering sometimes lo their sur prise and consternation that big government has rolled up an impressive record of failure

break would cause WASHINGTON ports of construction of a Russian antiaircraft mis sile site in North Viet Nam were being given cautious treatment by administra tion officials Friday Evidence has been re ceived that a site is in prep aration near Hanoi the North Vietnamese capital Whether this will really turn out to be a launching pad for Soviet rockets and what the implications for the Viet Nam war would be were described as mailers still under study here Aerial photos apparently show a clearing near Hanoi about the size of clearings spotted in Cuba or each of the 24 SAM surface LO air missiles sites installed by the Russians there in 1962 However no hard evidence of the arrival of Russian SAM mis siles in North Viet Nam has reached Washington officials said Therefore it was deemed too early to say whether for sure the Hanoi site is for Rus sian rockets What the significance of arrival of Soviet SAMS in North Viet Nam would be is something else On the one hand it would add to the danger to American planes flying over the country The highreaching Russian mis siles able to go up 80000 feet and more have shot down US U2 planes in the past It was thought to be a SAM that downed Francis Gary Powers over the Soviet Union in 1960 And the sophisticated missiles could increase direct Soviet in volvement in the Viet Nam con flict through assignment of Rus sian technicians to handle tha weapons Looked at another way the building of a single SAM site by Ihe Norlh Vietnamese capital US planes have never attacked could be rated as one of the lesser forms of Soviet
