He was Able to report to the president according to information in diplomatic quarters that he had succeeded in pulling the Western allies out of a. Logjam of disagree ment on inspection zones. They concurred in a plan he presented to Russia at a meeting of the . Subcommittee on disarmament in London Friday. What he proposed in essence was that Russia agree to Aerial and ground inspection Over great areas of Europe North America and the soviet. Union. The object is to preclude the possibility of a massive Surprise attack in this atomic age. In an Airport statement Dulles said that it is now up to the soviet Union to if the soviet Union accepts these he said and if the necessary details Are worked out the risk of Surprise attack will be greatly diminished.

Khrushchev vows to use milk meat and butter As a battering ram to smash through capitalism. But he May be headed for serious trouble be cause soviet cattle Don t seem to cooperating. After defeating his Kremlin foes he communist party chief s big bid for Public support is a Promise that the . By 1960 will catch up with the United states in per capita meat butter and milk production. If he Means this and really tries it he May destroy his own Power in the Effort. If he does t mean it he will add one More to the Long Chain of broken promises made to a increasingly aware so Viet Public. The Kremlin s big butter and meat Man won his purge Victory by a slim margin. There is no reason to assume the struggle is Over. Strong opposition remains to any threat of cutback in soviet heavy Industry which builds Mili tary and world political Power. But without a serious cutback Khrushchev has Little Hope of achieving his consumer goals for decades to Cosne. Khrushchev began whooping up the meat butter milk theme in the Spring in regional farm conferences at one of these he said milk and meat output would Fash Ion the battering ram with which we will smash through the capitalist system and consolidate the socialist communist at another meeting with another metaphor Khrushchev exclaimed we arc not intending to destroy the capitalist world with jambs. If we overtake the . Evel of per capita meat butter and milk production we will fire a mighty torpedo against capital St but there Are Shoals ahead. De spite Moscow reports of huge eco nomic gains there is evidence this fear s Grain crop be Many millions of tons below last year s jumper output. This promises to aggravate the main soviet agricultural problem severe shortages of animal fodder. What s the matter with soviet Good production it s an old Story. The Farmer is at the Bottom of he economic ladder. He has received Little but promises of future rewards. Rapid industrialize in of the . Has been at us expense. He pays now for the emphasis on heavy Industry. The peasant often has Little in Terest in the collective farm into which he has been regimented. His attitude is Likely to be it s not my cow and it s not my equip collective farm deliveries of products to the state at virtually confiscatory prices in the past All but extinguished peasant enthusiasm for cooperative farming. The situation has been some what eased since Stalin s another Bow to a growing phenomenon in the soviet Union which looks suspiciously Ike pub Lic opinion. The collective has paid and continues to pay heavily in produce for use of machinery doled out by a government administration. The term can own Only Light Machin Ery. Compared with Industrial workers peasants Are poorly paid. Even the produce from their Kitchen gardens had been subject to compulsory deliveries to he state though Khrushchev says now he will end that in order to increase the peasants material in addition to All this skilled help has been siphoned from the arms for City industries a Condi Ion the regime recently has been trying to Correct. The peasant appears1 to have a resentment Over his Lack of any voice in farm policies and Over the fact that the regime s insistence on the All out Leavy Industry program promises Nim Little Relief. Against this the prospects for Swift increases in soviet food production seem dim. Even what the . Has it can not seem to use efficiently in such a system. For example the . Has a Dairy cow population 10 per cent bigger than that of the United states. It serves a population is to 20 per cent bigger. At the same time better feeding and Breeding makes the total milk output in the United states twice that of the soviet Union. In 1953 Khrushchev admitted the Over All soviet livestock Situa Tion was Vorse than in 1817. There has been Little significant Advance in this picture since 1953. Milk output remains Low. In some re Gions livestock population has de creased because of fodder Short Ages. The poultry and cattle population is not enough to meet minimum Public demands. American farm workers achieve 6 to 12 times the labor productivity of their soviet counterparts. A recent report prepared for the joint economic committee of the . Congress says of this even if labor productivity in soviet agriculture should continue o increase at the rate of 33 per cent each five years As was officially claimed to have taken place Between 1950 and 1955, it is in resting to note that it would take soviet agriculture until at least 1985 to 1990 to reach the 1955 level of labor productivity in United states the Basic difference in the . And soviet food pictures is this the United states problem is one of abundance huge surpluses and How to adjust a vast production capacity to demand. For. Years the United states has had surpluses. But the soviet problem is a constant struggle to provide a minimum diet for the population. The . Always has had shortages. The congressional study Indi Cates meat and Dairy production in the . May still be below 1928 Levels. . Production Long ago exceeded that in 1928. Russia s prospects for overtaking the United states at All must be considered very Remote the congressional report says. The so Viet dilemma is this the . Economy could provide More food and consumer goods to the Public if it would forego heavy Industry production increases. But the so Vite habit strongly entrenched is to give All out priority to heavy Industry. Monkeying with this setup could to dynamite. It could signal weakening of soviet world Politi Cal authority. That could bring a new political explosion. Ike reported As still opposed to Senate version by Jack Bell and b. A livingst9ne Washington w president Eisenhower was reported Ada Mant saturday against the sen ate s revamped civil rights Bill and rep. Joseph w. Martin jr., House gop Leader pronounced civil rights legislation dead for this session of Congress. Three top administration officials who cannot be named said in interviews that Eisenhower regards the Senate version of the Bill As completely unworkable. He was said to be throwing his weight solidly against House acceptance of it. Martin told a reporter the Bill is not acceptable to us and i Don t think it s acceptable to a majority of the he foresaw a probable deadlock which would put the Issue Over to next year. The three administration Lead ers agreed that As the matter stands Eisenhower would rather have no Bill at All than accept the Senate s insertion of the jury trial amendment in a measure which it already had stripped a authority to enforce civil rights in general. Some House democratic leaders voiced the opinion privately that the republicans Don t want a civil rights Bill this they contended the Eisenhower administration is stalling and hoping to carry the Issue Over into the 1958 election year. Martin called the Senate Bill in its present form a democratic Bill and declared we won t take it in the form it is Likely to come out of the in foreseeing a possible dead lock Over efforts to Compromise differences Between the Senate version and the More sweeping administration sponsored Bill passed by the House Martin said it Loriks to me As though this Bill is dead for this session. That will put the whole civil rights fight Over until next january when Congress the chief executive s Legal advisers Are said to have told Eisenhower the measure the sen ate May pass by midweek represents not Only an empty Shell for Protection of voting rights but will hamstring government enforcement in other Fields.
