Hie morning after he arrived in Moscow, Nixon met with Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev in the Kremlin. Following preliminary ceremonies, Khrushchev abruptly ordered all reporters and photographers out of the room and began to harangue Nixon about the Captive Nations resolution which had recently been passed by Congress, a resolution which Khrushchev saw as a “serious provocation.” Nixon later wrote that he was surprised by Khrushchev’s unexpected attack and sbocked by his vehemence and profanity. ShorUy after this private meeting, Khrushchev and Nixon strolled together through an American exhibit in Moscow. At one point, they paused in a model kitchen and, before a battery of videotape cameras, launched into a harsh debate on the merits of capitalism versus communism which shocked reporters. Nixon recalled in “Six Grises” that the climax of the debate occurred when Khrushchev jammed his thumb into Nixon’s chest and accused the American military leaders of wanting to destroy the Soviet Union. “I know that now was the time to strike back,” Nixon wrote. “Otherwise 1 would leave the impression . .. that I, the second highest official of the United States, and the government I represented were dealing with Khrushchev from a position of weakness. . .1 had to be firm without being belligerent, a most difficult posture to preserve.” Nixon told the premier that neither country should ever force relations to a point of showdown, that if a Soviet-American nuclear war were ever to break out, “we would botii be losers.” Eventually, the debate subsided and the two resumed amiable, diplomatic conversation. But, In retrospect, Nixon recar    .    - . . I the moment not only as “one of the major personal crises of my hfe but. . .as a case study of the crisis of World Communism.

Mr. Foster said when the expansion is completed and 8,000 Students are using the campus, any more expansion would likely have to be done elsewhere, otherwise SAIT would become “impersonal. ” Flood control plan studied CALGARY (CP) - The Alberta Government will spend $430,000 this year implementing certain proposals aimed at reducing property damage in Calgary in the event of major flooding in the Bow River, says Environment Minister Bill Yurko. The proposals of the Bow River Flood Study committee to be implemented Include hillside stabilization, upstream flood control, a flood forecasting and warning system, and a study of flood insurance policy, he said.

(€■■*#■ Cmtwiit Imn iMved am kaar earlier hm. t wbeii MaataiM w«M m AtyHgfet thne.) By JOHN BURNS Special to The Herald PEKING ~ Although China has been spared the cult of drugs, long hair and sex which has swept the youth of the world in the past decade, it has been obvious all along that the country has a youth problem of its own which is no less profound and worrying for its leaders because its symptoms are less striking. The Chinese dilemma is simply put. In a society which severely limits the opportunities for individual expression, initiative and advancement, there are bound to be frustrations among the young. But when they constitute the majority of the population and are endowed by education with the capacity to think and act for themselves, the frustrations can become acute. In recent years the problem has been compounted by the taste for self-expression and power acquired by millions of Red Guards during the brief period in the late 1960s when they were granted licence to rebel against all authority only to find, when the upheaval was over, that the old restraints were imposed more tightly than ever. It was against this background that the Com-munisty party, at its 10th National Congress, took tte unprecedented step of naming to its highest councils a man who is still in his thirties. Wang Hung-wen, a former worker in a Shanghai textile mill, thus became a national symbol of the possibilities that the party holds out to young people who work bard and keep their noses dean. According to diplomats who have talked to him, Wang gives the impression of being a man of exceptional ability, fully capable of handling the national responsibilities now thrust upon him. But it seems clear that his meteoric rise to the third spot in the hierarchy, after Chairman Mao Tse-tung and Premier Chou En-lai, owes much to the party’s eagerness to demonstrate that its councils are no longer the exclusive preserve of the old warhorses of the revolution. The place of youth in the New China has been a special concern of Mao's since the early days. “The world is yours as well as ours,” he once told a group of Chinese students in Moscow, but somehow youth never gained much leverage within the party, dominated for the first two decades after 1949 by the men and women who joined it while it was still in the political and geographical wilderness. Although surrounded by the parly’s inner circle by men of the same generation as himself, Mao took care to cultivate his ties with the new generation and it was to them that he turned when, finding his own authority within the party challenged, he decided to launch the cultural revolution Mao. long pledged to give “full ptay to the energy of our youth, ", was clearly determined to stem the discouragement among the legions of young people by demonstrating that the road to advancement in Chinese life, membership in the party, lay open to those of them who ex- celled in their work among the peasants. Apparently there was more to the stories in the press than political puffery, for the communique issued after the congress revealed that the party's ranks have been swelled by more than eight million in the past few years, up from the 20 million who were members before the Cultural Revolution. Many of these, the communique made clear, were young pecóle Including, apparently, large numbers of educated youngsters who have settled among the peasants. A bloc of these young pe<^le were delegates to the congress and a handful of them even made it to the new central committee, nominally üie sovereign body of the party between congresses. This in itself was precedent-shattering, but even those who had foreseen a youth bloc on the committee had not predicted that a man still in his youth, a factory worker until only seven years ago, would be installed as the party> No. 3. Inevitably Wang’s sudden advancement will prompt speculation that Mao and Chou are grooming him to inherit their mantles when they pass from the scene, but this seems too simple a view. Obviously his new position makes him an important factor in any calculations about China’s future, but until he develops a strong base of his own within the party he can hardly be considered as the leading candidate for the succession. China's next leader will have to be a man who commands the support of key elements in the party and the army and who has some political base ot his own. As a member of the party's ruling circle Wang is now in a position to demonstrate his political expertise, and his appointment last year as the political commissar of the Shanghai garrison — he wore his uniform at the congress ~ gives him a base in the army. But it may be a long time before he has the kind of political standing in his own right that would give him first claim to tite succession. In the meantime he will play a role of enormous symbolic importance. The party declared triumphantly in the communique that it has “no lack of successors" — that is, that there are plenty of young people in the party ready to carry on the traditions of Mao's generation — and it is as the living embodiment of that dictum that Wang must be vie’.ved. EDMONTON (CP) -Orange-and-white Edmonton Transit System buses returned to city streets Saturday for the first time since late November. The return of the buses marked the first public transportation for the metropolitan population of 518,000 since drivers and garagemen went on strike Nov. 29. The men accepted the city’s wage offer 'Hiursday, but the buses couldn’t begin rolling until they were checked by maintenance staff. The iirst buses on Jasper Avenue, the city’s main downtown street, carried only a few passengers. But that’s normal load for an early Saturday morning. CSA firing to be probed EDMONTON (CP) - The president of the Civil Service Association of Alberta says two women employees of the Alberta Housing Corp. have been fired because of their activities in the CSA. Bill Broad said one woman, a secretary in the corporation’s personnel department, was fired last week when she refused to cancel her membership in the CSA. He said the other woman was told her position had been phased out but it is still apparently open. Both cases would be considered unfair labor practices under the Alberta Labor Act but the corporation, a crown agency, does not fall under the act, said Mr. Broad. Early pipeline hearings sought WANG HUNG-WEN EDMONTON (CP) - The president of a consortium proposing to build the ¥6-billiran Mackenzie Valley oil and gas pipeline says he hopes public hearings on &e pipeline application can begin this spring. Vern Horte of Canadian Arctic Gas Studies Ltd. said the consortium will be ready to file applications with I'overnment authorities in Canada and the United States by late February. He told the annual meeting of the Alberta-Northwest Chamber of Mines, Oils and Resources he hopes approval for the massive project will come within a year after public hearings begin.
