Khrushchev Shouts Threats at Red Rally E. Germany Says Treaty Negotiations Are Under Way West's Leaders Titov Ejected From Capsule, Newsmen Told Two Landing Systems Available, He Says By GEORGE SYLVERTSEN MOSCOW Soviet cosmo- naut Gherman Titov said today he was ejected from his space ship at the end of his epic 25-hour or- bital flight and parachuted to earth. The second Soviet spaceman told a jammed news conference his spaceship Vostok II came down separately by parachute! "but if the need had arisen, I could have landed it myself." Titov said there were two land- ing systems to remain in the space ship and par- achute down with it or to descend separately. He said he had per- mission to use either system. "I felt well and decided to test the second landing he said. The ship landed safely nearby, he added. The space flier said he exper- ienced no ill the acceleration forces, noise and vi- bration of the takeoff, from the prolonged weightlessness or from the transition from weightlessness near the end of his 17 trips around the globe. Titov said after landing neither ht nor medical experts could de- tect any changes in his physical organism. The self-assured young major A BARRAGE OF news- men are standing, seeking the attention of Presi- dent Kennedy during a news conference in the State Department auditorium Aug. 10. The Presi- dent singles out one of them by pointing. A re- cord 433 newsmen attended the conference, the President's 14th since taking office. (AP Wire- photo) Small Notions Challenging Neighbors to Share in Aid reported one variation from nor-1 mal. He said he wasn't hungry' for his first two meals although he ate them on schedule. "Frankly speaking I had no particular appetite." the 26-year- cosmonaut said. "This was probably due to the sustained weightlessness and excitement." Titov spoke at a news confer- ence held at Moscow University for more than Soviet and foreign newsmen, scientists and diplomats. Mstislav Keldysh, president of the soviet academy of sciences, introduced the Soviet Union's new space hero and said his 25-hour flight had produced a wealth of scientific information that will be published and shared with scien- tists all over the world. The flight, Keldysh added, op- ened the way for manned flight "to Mars, the Moon, Venus, and even further into the depths of the universe." Keldysh said foreign newsmen will be permitted to watch launch- ings of Soviet space ships in the future but gave no indication when this would happen. "You realize carrier rockets are not only peaceful instruments, and if the Americans had such ad- vanced carrier rockets you can be they wouldn't be showing them, either." he said. The Soviet academician said T-.- tov had demonstrated that a hu- man pilot is able to control his space ship manually, make scien- tific observations and land his craft on any spot on earth. Titov told the newsmen he re- garded his historic flight round and round the earth as "some- thing that it did not seem like anything extraordinary because he had trained so thor- oughly for it. He said his training as a fighter pilot had been mdst important in preparing him for his space as- signment and that he was moral'y inspired to carry out his task by love of country and the Soviet people. Going into a detailed account of his flight from the moment he blasted off at 9 a.m. Aug. 6, Titov said that he experienced no ill ef- fects from the acceleration forces, noise and vibration of the takeoff. Once in space, he continued, the cabin of his spaceship Vostok II Sec 10 By WILLIAM L.

In the maneuvering at the Inter- American Economic Conference here the United States is standing Leaders Differ On U.S. Prestige At Lowest Ebb of All Trrne, Says GOP Chief WASHINGTON (AP) Demo- cratic National Chairman John M. Bailey says U.S. prestige is "very but Republican National Chairman William.E. Miller says it is "at the lowest ebb of all time." Those opposing views of how the U.S. image overseas has fared during the first months of the Kennedy administration were giv- en by the chairmen on a debate- style television "Joint Thursday nights. Miller said President Kennedy has ceased taking any prestige polls overseas since the campaign because "he wouldn't be interest- ed in knowing the results." Bailey said: "I feel that the country and the world knows that America has a leader, and that the prestige of the United States is high." During the 1960 election cam- paign the parties took reverse po- sitions. Democrats claimed it was slipping and Republicans said r remained high. Miller said he thought it "is a lack of firmne.ss which has de- stroyed our prestige." He cited "our indecision in Laos, the fiasco in Cuba." In rebuttal.

Dangerous Killer Escapes Prison Mike Gisondi Gets Out, Official View JACKSON (AP) Tough little Mike Gisondi, doing life for mur- der and known as one of Mich- igan's most dangerous criminals, appeared today to have escaped from Southern Michigan Prison. The 31-year-old killer, who es- caped from two other Michigan prisons and failed in a previous try here, turned up missing a' fi p check Thursday night a the textile mill where he worked Officials first believed he was hiding somewhere on the grounds of the world's largest walled pri- son. But after a thorough search turned up no trace of Gisondi they revised the theory. "It looks like he is outside the walls." a spokesman for Warden William B a n n a n said today. "There was a lot of traffic through the south gate Thursday and it is not unlikely that he rode out in a truck." Another possibility was that Gi- sondi had been slam by fellow inmates. "He has some enemies." said the spokesman. "They might have killed him and stashed his body somewhere." Gisondi once was known as a gun toter who was quick to shoot Since he went to prison in 1952 he has acquired a reputation as a determined and resourceful es- cape artist. in the company of Harold Hum- mel, a self-styled "western bad- man." Gisondi broke out of Ionia Reformatory on July 21. 1952. The pair shot and killed Vido; Vinokurow, 61. a Hazel Park tav ern owner, and his son. Joseph 31, in a holdup attempt.

Sterner meas- ures were also promised to halt the tide of refugees through West Berlin. The announcements were made to a special session of East Ger- many's Parliament in East Berlin by Foreign Minister Lothar Bo 12 and Deputy Premier Willy Stoph. Parliament approved a reso'ui- ion endorsing all measures al- taken to stop the flight of refugees. The vote was unani- mous, as always. The resolution also welcomed he recent statement of the Com- munist Warsaw Pact countries calling for a peace treaty without delay. But it added nothing about negotiating it. Bolz said the foreign ministers of the Soviet bloc will meet laU: in the when or where le did not say. Khrushchev has demanded that peace treaties be signed with East and West Germany. Since the West is firmly against signing a treaty with anything but a reunit- ed Germany, it appeared the pro- jected conference would draw up a treaty, the West would reject it and then Khrushchev would go ahead and sign it before the end of the year, as promised. As part of the campaign against the West on Berlin, Khrushchev named Marshal Ivan S. Konev. former military commander of the Warsaw Pact, t6 command Soviet forces up against the Weit in Germany. The Communist press made no fuss about the appointment. Neues Deutschland, the official party or- gan, carried the one-sentence re- port in bold type, on page one, under a small headline. Bolz told Parliament Berlin would remain a free un- der Communist definition this would mean withdrawal of West- ern garrisons posted against such Communist devices as "spontane- ous demonstrations." With Berlin in Communist hands. East Germany would be virtually sealed off from the West and its people would be unable to flee.

HIGHTOWER WASHINGTON (AP) Ambas- sador Llewellyn Thompson, U.S envoy to Moscow, joined Kennedy administration consultations to- day on moves which the United States and its allies may make in the increasingly grave Berlin crisis. Secretary of State Dean Rusk, returning to Washington Thursday night upon the conclusion of Al- lied strategy talks in Western Eu- rope, brought Thompson with him. President Kennedy called Rusk to the White House at noon for a Wayne Official Gets Clean Bill Prosecutor Olsen Not Guilty of Misconduct LANSING County Prosecutor Samuel H, Olsen was given a clean bill of health legally today in an investigation of his conduct in office, including the acceptance of an Sll.OOO contribu- tion from the Teamsters Union.

Nevertheless, he said, "it ap- pears clear that no assistant was fired for failure to contribute and that the contributions are a mat- ter of self-preservation under the present system." Allegations that Olsen was fre- quently absent from his job were almost impossible to ascertain, Adams said. "There is no eight-hour day in the practice of law and the legal report on his meetings with the foreign ministers of Britain, France and West Germany, and the government chiefs of West Germany and Ad- enauer and Ammtore Fanfani. State Department officials said that Thompson came to Washing- ton for consultation for a few days, after which he will return to Europe. On his arrival here. Rusk said "we have had very successful consultations" with representa- ves of Western countries.. Ha dded: "1 am very much en- ouraged by the unity and soli- arity of our alliance." Upon his departure from Paris, lusk had said of his talks with llied leaders: "I think there is greement there will be negotia- ions." At the same time a Frencn pokesman said the De Gaulle had turned down a '.S. proposal to take the mitia- ive in proposing negotiations to le Soviet Union. Thus it appeared that the allied trategy discussions which began n Paris at the end of last week ad failed to resolve differences >n specific steps which may be aken by the Western side as the Berlin crisis develops. However, authorities here insisted that the Dasic unity of the allies in _ re- sisting Soviet pressures against West Berlin was complete and strong. Apart from the reported differ- ence over possible approaches to East-West negotiations on Berlin, there also appeared to be some uncertainty as to the extent of participation by the Western Eu- ropean allies in building up mili- tary forces under tbe NATO com- mand in Western Europe. Kennedy told a news conference Thursday that an increase in con ventionai non-nuclear forces wa one of the subjects Rusk had talked about with other allied pol- icy makers. But Kennedy thought it "was premature to determine whether the allied responses would be completely satisfactory from the U.S. point of view. The United States has been urg- ing that the allied governments build up to their scheduled strength of 30 goal set several vears ago but still unfulfilled, by about eight di- visions.

MOSCOW 'AP) 'Premier Khrushchev, in a shouting and arm-waving speech, declared to- day hundreds of millions of per- sons will die if a new war is touched off.

LOUIS, Mo. lady lawyer, who will not be treated as Adam's rib. headed home from the American Bar Association con- vention today with a victory of sorts. Miss Dorothy Frooks of New York City had an idea to settle all labor disputes. Just set up la- bor courts with power to hand down decisions binding on all par- ties. At the ABA's 84th annual con- vention this week she introduced a study of the a resolution for idea.

But they reckoned without Mis? Frooks. She arose in ABA assembly Thursday to remark that resolutions introduced by refugee flow, now approaching for this year, and he hinted they might be taken even before a peace treaty is signed.
