MILES Nikita Khrushchev challenged the west today to up with concrete ideas for a summit conference to blunt the threat of war over Berlin and Ger- many. The Soviet Union is ready, he asserted. Khrushchev said the Soviet Union is willing to meet with the west May 11 to discuss problems of West Berlin and a German treaty. Wants Peace Treaty He again advanced the So- viet idea that a conference in- clude all the 28 nations that fought Hitler in. World war II. This proposal has been reject- ed by western powers. Khrushchev issued a state- ment evidently designed as his response to President Eisen- hower's address last Monday. He stuck to his previous con- tention that the broad meet- ing he proposed consider a German peace treaty but add- ed significantly that if the west has proposals "any we are reasonable willing to consider them along with our own." He said the meeting should aim to conclude a peace treaty with Germany and "settle pressing problems." The Soviet leader said he understood the western pow- ers have proposed that a con of foreign ministers open May 11 and his govern- ment is ready to accept. "I am convinced there wil be meetings of both the for eign ministers and heads of he continued. For two hours Khrushchev answered questions from more than 300 correspondents in Sverdlovsky hall of the Kremlin. He praised as reasonable President Eisenhower's re- marks Monday on negotia- tions, jibed at West German Chancellor Adenauer's posi- Macmillan on Turn to Page IS, Col. 1 Nuclear Explosions Over Atmosphere Reported Set Off to Form Shield to Rettrict Missiles BT Washington nuclear bombs exploded, by the United States beyond the earth's atmosphere formed an elec- tronic sheet that circled most of the world. A responsible official outside the defense department said the tests at tremendous altitude were an effort to spread a shield through which missiles could not fly. Defense department officials confirmed last night that the blasts had been set off secretly last September, for both mili- tary and scientific test purposes. But they declined to discuss the military angles. Other sources reported, however, that the test explored the possibility of generating at an altitude of about 300 miles a diffusion of neutrons which would offset the nuclear reac- tion in missile warheads. Just how the electronic shield could halt missile or keep it from exploding was not explained. Fired From Ships With President Expected to Work For More Flexible Policy for Allies Washington OB British Prime Minister Harold Mac- millan arrives today for Ber- lin strategy talks with Presi- dent Eisenhower. He is ex pected to urge Eisenhower to join him in working out more flexible western policies for forthcoming negotiations with Russia. The two men will go into their weekend of conferences firmly agreed on the need to resist Soviet threats and pres sures aimed at forcing the estern powers out of Berlin But they are clearly divided on a number of other issues involved in preparing for ne gotiations with Russia. Ike Consults Aides Before heading to Washing ton from Ottawa, Macmillan expressed connfidence his vis its to the two capitals "wil serve to consolidate and con firm the united will of the western world." Eisenhower called actini Sec. of State Christian Herte and other adviser to the White House for discus sion of the Berlin situation in preparation for Macmillan' arrival. The actual talks between the two men will get unde way tomorrow at Camp Dav id, Md., a secluded mountai retreat about 65 miles from Washington. Although a joint statemen early next week may report generally on their talks, de tailed practical results of thei work may not be disclosed o: ficially until the foreign min isters of the United States Britain, France and Russi meet this spring. Such a meet ing is now being worked out. Airport Aid Bill Vote Due Today Washington Hous Democrats and Republican squared off today for anothe GOP Starts Defense On Withholding Plan The shots were fired from naval craft in the south Atlan- tic late in than a month before the United States started a one- year suspension tests pending of nuclear negotiations with Russia on halting all such testing. Deputy Sec. of Defense Donald Quarles and Dr. Her- bert York, director of Pen- tagon research, gave some details of the test shots after newsmen had learned of them from other sources. They said the explosions were of very low yield in ra- diation and would not reveal the altitude at which the tests Turn to Page 10, Col. 1 budget battle likely to hav repercussions in next year' election campaigns. It's over a Democratic backed airport aid bill whic calls for spending millio: more than President Eisen hower has recommended. Indications were that the f nal vote today would fin the Democrats on top.

Governor Gives More Tax Details IY JOHN WYNGAARD Staff Writer in ontrol of the state senate oday were preparing their efenses against the Demo- ratic administration drive or an income tax withhold- ing plan. Gov. Gaylord Nel- on is making public addi- ional details of the opera- tion of his proposed wage and salary check tax deduc- tion system. Unconfirmed but reliable say Republicans of the senate in a first, private est vote on the withholding issue Wednesday showed 19 out of 20 planning to vote.'. against the central financial strategy of the Democratic governor and his legislative lieutenants. The 20th mem- was described as uncer- tain about his attitude. If such a line-up continues, Nelson will be defeated al- though it is expected his plan will breeze through the Dem- ocratic controlled assembly comfortably. 20 Per Cent The governor Wednesday formally asked the legislative finance committee to intro- duce his bill and offered fur- ther details of its operation. He said he wants it effective July 1, if it can be passed quickly enough, or if not, on Sept. 1. He asked that withholding for the balance of 1950 be at :he rate of 20 per cent of tha federal withholding for wages and salaries, which would at an artificially high rate, permitting most taxpayers to This Aerial View Shows 21 cars of a 94-car Chicago and North Western freight train scattered across tracks after a broken rail caused a derailment Wed- nesday afternoon near Allenville, 8 miles northwest of Oshkosh.
