JULY 23, 1958 FINAL EDITION FIVE CENTS THOUSANDS WOULD HAVE TO GUARD VISITING SOVIET BOSS NEW YORK (AP) If Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev should come here, the problem of assuring him protection prob-- ably would reouire the greatest and most complicated effort ever undertaken in this country. Without doubt, literally thousands of persons would be assigned to the job. The New York police department, which never takes any chances on such occasions, would have a huge portion of its force detailed to that task specifically. Even for visits of President Eisenhower, the police department has hundreds and sometimes thousands of officers lining the streets and guarding him at other spots. In addition to the city police force, a Khrushchev visit would require security aid from federal government officers. Russian bodyguards, United Nations officers, and possibly even New York State and county police. The fact is that many an eastern European refugee now living here doesn't like Russia, and likes Khrushchev even less. Hungarian refugees alone in recent years have given police plenty of trouble with demonstrations against Russia. Officers had their hands full to cope with angry Hungarians picketing Russian U.N. officials during the 1956 revolt in Hun- gary, which was put down by Russian tanks and arms. A few weeks ago Hungarians staged another riotous demonstra- tion at the Park Avenue headquarters of the Russians. Hun- garians tried to storm the building and a battle with police ensued. Several officers were injured and a number ot pickets arrested. But Deputy Police Commissions Walter Arm said: "Any representative of a foreign government who comes to this city will receive the fullest measure of protection, as always In the past. As to actual plans, there can be nothing said until something definite develops." ________ LATE BULLETINS Senator Sees Iraq Recognition WASHINGTON (AP) Seir. John Sparkmnn (D-Ala) expressed belief today the United States ultimately will recognize the new government in Iraq. He did so after attending a secret briefing by Under Secretary of State which attracted only 10 senatcrs, one less than yesterday's kickoff of daily consultations. Pension Report Bill Advances WASHINGTON (AP) The House Labor Committee today gave formal approval to a bill requiring public reports on em- ploye welfare and pension benefit plans. The vote was reported as 20-8. A 15-13 vote defeated an amendment by Rep. William Ayres (R-Ohio) to exempt plans to which employes have not contrib- uted. Syria Fires At Mystery Plane DAMASCUS.

(AP) The next step in the Middle East crisis depends on whether Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev accepts the challenge to a sum- mit meeting in the U.N. Security Council. Khrushchev today presumably was making up his mind whether to insist on his own plan for a five-power summit meeting apart from the U.N., or agree to the suggestions of President Eisen bower and British Prime Minister Macmillan for the hign-level meeting here. Moscow dispatches said many diplomats there believed the So- viet leader would accept the Ei senhowcr Macmillan suggestion though he might not like the setup. SIDESTEPPING CHARGED But an article in Izvestia, the Soviet government newspaper which -apparently- was written be- fore the Eisenhower Macmillan proposals were known officially threw ice water on the U.N. sum mit idea. The official Soviet news agency Tass-distributed a report of the Izvestia article saying that "the United States rulers are seeking a suitable way'to avoid" Khrush chev's proposal. "It is common knowledge that the United States wields a me- chanical majority in the Sccuritx Council.

Sudan Thwarts Coup By Egypt CAIRO (AP) Western trav elcrs arriving today from Khar toum said an Iraqi type pro- Nasser coup was attempted in Su dan in the last few days. It ap parcntly was nipped by the Su danese authorities. Details could not be learned. But Egypt's government con- trolled Middle East news agency reported in a Khartoum dispatch yesterday the commander of thc Sudanese army had ordered all officers to remain at their posts. The agency said he had forbidden any officers from traveling abroad until the Middle East crisis is past.

Ironically, Patrolman Dick West said, Summers' nickname came from his long-standing prar of slow and careful driving. He owned and operated a garage at the mouth of Cooper's Creek on U. S. 119. West said Mrs. Summers told him that during the night her hus- band suffered an attack "which she said she believed to be a heart attack. But this morning he was better and started to work. He may have had another attack." Dr. Goff P. Lilly, Kanawha County coroner, examined the body at the hospital. He said it is likely Summers died of a crushed chest. The man suffered other injuries, including a frac- tured pelvis and a badly broken and mangled right leg.
