The president's invitation reached Macmillan last night shortly after he returned from his 10-day visit to the Soviet Union. The prime minister will go to Northern Ireland this week- end, to Paris for talks with President De Gaulle March S-10 and then to Bonn for sim- ilar discussions with Chancel- lor Konrad Adenauer March 12-13. Seen as New Leader The Washington trip is ex- pected to follow soon after. In all these talks Macmillan will review the impressions he formed about Soviet policy during his talks with Premier Khrushchev. The prime minister was be- ing hailed in Britain as the new leader of the western alliance. British observers said his visit to Moscow had made him the west's key figure in the future critical dealings with the Soviet Union on the issues of Germany and West Berlin. Macmillan, on his return yesterday, said Britain should "try to give a lead to find a way through."

The Soviet leader insisted in a 20-minute speech that his government wants only peace and needs peace to carry out its 7-year economic ex- pansion program. Khrushchev had just arrived in town for consultation with his East German communist allies and a visit to Leipzig's big spring trade fair. Speaking before a big crowd in a rain at Wilhelm Leusch- ner platz, he insisted all the Soviet Union wants is peace. Peace Talk Cheered "However much these peo- ple he said of the west- ern leaders, "nothing will come of it." A crowd which the i East German communist radio es- timated at "tens of thou- sands" heard the brief speech without marked enthusiasm. They did cheer and applaud, though, when he spoke of peace. In the name of the Soviet he said, "I declare that those people could be reasonable who are respon- sible for signing a peace trea- ty. The United States, Eng- France and all nations want peace. Now the govern- ments should listen to the voice of their people, and the peoples say we want peace, peace, peace." Khrushchev declared upon landing at an airport near Berlin that "only lunatics can seek solutions by war." Here he reiterated that Rus- sia will defy western protests and transfer to East Germany its controls over western al- lied lifelines to West Berlin. He did not say when. The Russians, advocates of a sum- mit conference on all major cold war issues, have agreed to a foreign ministers confer- ence on Berlin and a German peace treaty and suggested that it start next month with a June or July deadline to wind up its work. Khrushchev said an immediate interna- tional conference was needed on these two problems.
