V NEWSPAPER SIW.E M09 ISTAILISHEO 10 LANCASTER, OHIO, WEDNESDAY, JULY 1959 Over-all Feeling Warm In Western Siberia N Heck By JOHN SCALI SVERDLOVSK, Soviet Union M. Nixon took on a series of hecklers today and de- manded to know why the Soviet Union sees fit to maintain troops in Poland, Hungary and East Ger- many. The clashes took place in No- vosibirsk, western Siberia, just before the vice president took off for Sverdlovsk. Several thousand silently waiting Russians greeted him in this city in the eastern Ural Mountains. Tour Becomes 'Bust1 Nixon's eagerly awaited tour of Siberian branch of the tlie U. Novosibirsk turned out to be a bust. Soviet authorities allowec him to see only a single building which, they said, is to house their institute of hydrodynamics. Eventually, some 500 building are to be located in the area where many of Russia's top scien- tists will work. Nixon's total stay there lasted about a half hour. Soviet authorities only reluctant- ly allowed him the visit. Nixon in- sisted on it. The over-all feeling toward Nix- Jon in Novosibirsk was warm. He received there Tuesday the friend- liest greeting of his 11-day 'Soviet Clash A j vi mo j.-1-uay ooviei Academy ol Sciences at tour. Throngs, curious about Republican New Hawaii Governor HONOLULU captured two seats m Congress and Republicans nabbed one today in Ha- waii's first state election. Republican William F. Quinn won a spectacularly close contest for the 5Qth state's governorship, and his running mate easily won 'the lieutenant governorship. Two of Hawaii's three-member congressional delegation are of Asian ancestry one a Democrat of Japanese descent and the other a Republican of Chinese parent- Americans, a breed they seldom see, all but mobbed him at times. Believed 'Plant' But shortly before leaving Nov- osibirsk he was subjected to some questions from hecklers. One of Nixon's aides said some of the heckiers appeared to have been planted in the crowd. Nixon showed no outward sign of being upset at the sharp ques- tioning which came as he toured the big hydroelectric plant and big scientific center. Sverdlovsk, 900 miles west of Novosibirsk, is where the Bolshe- viks executed Czar Nicholas II in 1918. Now a city of more than Sverdlovsk has been a leading in- dustrial center since the Russians here in War II. It is 850 miles east ot Moscow. Exchanges 'Hot' The hot exchanges in Novosi- birsk came only two hours before Mxon and his party left that city. On several occasions question- ers stood toe to toe with Nixon challenging him to say why the United States will not accept So- viet plans for ending nuclear tests and why it will not trade more with the Soviet Union. The vice president's patience wore a little thin when, standing atop an incomplete hydroelectric dam, a workman kept shouting questions and interrupting. questioner was identified as gory Belausov Federovic, 30, an electrician. Question Asked "The Soviet Union has no milfr" tary bases outside our borders, and the United States has many in foreign countries. Why is that. I'd like to Federovic asked. In replying.

HIGHTOWER GENEVA diplomats reported to- day that the revised Soviet and Western plans for end- ing the Berlin crisis have failed to break the Big Four conference deadlock over the future of the city. Prospects appeared darker than ever that the Geneva negotiations would ease the East-West Conflict over Communist-surrounded West Berlin. But Western officials pointed out Jhat a last-minute Soviet switch on some key frequent Soviet negotiating Woman, 80, Killed On Her Way To Church BOWLING GREEN, O. An 80-year-old resident of convalescent home was killed today struck by a truck as she crossed U.S. 25 in Per- rysburg, en route to church. The victim was Mrs. Lena Fitzgerald. Police said t h e driver of the truck-trailer. Rex Hile of Waterloo, Ind., slam- med on his brakes to avoid hitting the woman. But the trailer jack-knifed an d hit !ier. CARMICHAEL alter the whole situation. Most Western officials fore- cast that, unless the Soviets pulled a switch, the conference would end late next week with- out an agreement either on Ber- lin or to hold a summit confer- ence. Secretary of State Christian Countless Dead Fish Removed From Park Pond Don Bainter, superintendent of city parks, said today that two small trailerloads of dead fish were removed from the pond at Rising Park early this week. The fish were discovered first on Monday, and the greatest number Tuesday, w i t h a few found dead today. Clarence (Rusty) Killer, local game war- den, said that the fish probably were killed by stale, stagnant water in the pond, and that the current weather change had ad- ditional adverse effects. Most of the fish in the pond are carp, goldfish, and catfish, and those killed were in the majority carp and Prorated Gas Charge Hiked 3c, And Not Ic Employes of the city's Utili- ties Collection Office were won- dering late yesterday if they might not have to learn methe'- matics all over again after reading the account of city coun- cil raising the natural gas rates. Monday night council passed an ordinance raising the mini- mum charge from t0 and the prorated charge after the minimum.' The newspaper account said the prorated char- ges were hiked only lc, while the breakdown on actual rates showed the raise was 3c. It was a typographical error. Each prorated charge above the minimum is hiked 3c by coun- cil's action. Mayor John Harvey Weis wa. not available today for com ment on whether he would sigi the ordinance on the new rates which council authorized to g into effect August 1.

Tlie West continued to hold out for an agreement se- curing its rights in Berlin until "ermany is reunified. The Soviet union still offered a truce on Berlin for 18 months of all-German negotiations and then for an unspecified period of Big Four negotiations Bainter said. Although it is not known how- many fish remain alive in the pond, Bainter said that the pond had been overpopulated with for some time. Park workers plan to pump out impurities which have col- lected on the surface, arid to add fresh water to the pond. Bainter said children would not.be allowed to fish in the pond until sometime next week, when the fresh water has been added. ordinance can go into effect bj August 1 only if the mayor signs the bill, otherwise it takes II days to become law. Commenting on the new gas rates providing the mayoi signs the ordinance or doesn't veto Engineer Wal- ter Graf pointed out today that with the new rates local cus- tomers will still pay the lowest charges for natural gas in the state. "This is the first increase in fas rates in Lancaster since 1945." said Graf.

Mathes, a farmhand for Schwartz, was hauling man- ure from the barnyard across County Rd. 39 to a field southeast of the Schwartz farmhou.se when his right trouser leg was. caught acci- dentally in the power take- off mechanism of the tractor. His right leg was cut, depu- ties reported, to the bone, at the ankle; tendons .were cut, and both bones in the right ankle were broken. Mathes was found by Clarence Elick, another farmhand. Malhes, married and the father of three children, was still in surgery at Lancaster- Fairfield Hospital early this afternoon. Eisenhower said Nixon had ac- quitted himself splendidly and in a manner fitting his high office during his Soviet travels and his encounters with Khrushchev. Asked whether the visit has served to ease cold war tensions, the President said that only time can tell. Eisenhower also touched on these other topics in the news conference: STEEL-He said that the US Steel Corp.'s profits, as reported Tuesday night, have no bearing on whether the government should intervene in behalf of a wage in- crease for the striking steelworkers. Records Heights The company's earnings in the iirst half of the year were at rec- ord heights. The union contends the earnings statement s h o w s wages can be increased. Eisenhower said the government cannot talk about steel wages or profits without appearing to favor one side or the other, and if it does it is in trouble. Eisenhower repeated his de- mand for a settlement that will not create or incite inflation.
