actually be spent during the 1957 fiscal year starting July 1 Therefore he said the new request will not balance the 1957 budget which he presented to Congress in Jan uary The budget originally pro

One Mans A Radio Commentary By W EARL HALL GlobeGazette Editor BROADCAST SCHEDULE WTAD Qutocy S30 Sunday KGLO 1300 Sunday WOI Ames 640 Thursday WSUI City 910 Saturday On the End of a Long Limb KS an editor who deliberately out to the extreme end of a long limb I have more than a passing interest in the things that are happening behind the Iron Curtain these days What I have particularly in mind of course is the socalled grading of the late Josef Stalin Im on record not just once but many times as predicting that if the free world will stay strong long enough economical ly militarily and spiritually well be on hand to preside over the burial rites of that most de spicable ideology ever foisted off on to mankind Its Communism It will if called given time fall of its own weight Ive insisted repeatedly The view was based on an ex tended study of Marxism as it has been applied by the Krem lin and by a closeup look at Communism behind two Iron Curtains one erected by Mos cow in East Germany the other one erected by Tito in Yugo slavia Theyre the same poison Only the bottles are different Beginning of End It would be easy for me to con clude that the current effort to deflate a corpse and rewrite three decades of Russian history is the beginning of the end There is I must admit a pronounced temptation to do just that Some others are as a matter of fact But Ive resolved from my first contact with applied Marxism not to let myself be governed by wishful thinking And there would be a measure of wishful thinking in any sweeping conclusions with respect to what motivated the Khrushchev denunciation of Stal in at the Partys 20th Congres and with respect to where the new policy is going to lead In this visit with you I plan merely to examine the evidence and weigh it as best I can Anc first of all I should point out that there is no uniformity of opinion among those in best position to pass on the question before us Some say that Khrushchev anc his associates are leading from strength others say were wit nessing the beginning of the end As for me well Im withhold ing judgment until more of the cards are down on the table As yet there is more hidden from sight than meets the eye in the overall Soviet scene Were view ing only the surface of the ice berg Beria Indictment Recalled Although the Khrushchev pro nouncement hit the world like a ton of bricks those in the know werent taken by surprise In the liquidation of Beria two years ago there was a not too well con cealed assault on the personality and the works of Joe Stalin It could almost be said that the in dictment which killed Beria was actually against his master It must be assumed that the course of downgrading Stalin now being pursued resulted from some prolonged and earnest con sideration on the part of the so called politburo the inner circle of the Communist Party It seems reasonably clear that Khrush chev consented to the plural ap proach in the Communist regime only because it became clear to him that he didnt have what it takes to succeed Stalin as a one man dictatorship As somebody has observed CONTINUED ON PACE 2 vide for accelerated production of longrange B52s and construc tion of additional Strategic Air Command bases to handle them Part of the Air Force funds also would go to speed construc tion of the socalled DEW line or Distant Early Warning line of radar stations stretching miles across the Arctic rim of northern Canada Few Details The President also sought for the Navy for the Army and for interservice He said the interservice funds will go primarily to pro vide for meeting unforeseen de velopments in the ballistic missile He did not elaborate The Navy funds will provide for additional ship conversion and the Army funds for a minor in crease in ground forces strength No details of the new programs were given in Eisenhowers sup plemental appropriation request which was formally submitted to Congress after the chief execu tive left by plane for a golfing holiday in Augusta Ga New Bases Eisenhower said that of the Air Force funds about would go directly for purchase of new B52 bombers and for construction of new B52 bases and the DEW line radar screen Defense officials said the B52 pro gram will provide 30 of the far reaching eightjet bombers With the support facilities the B52 pro gram comprises more than half of the total appropriation request Congressional Republicans are confident the administration move will take the punch out of a com ing Senate investigation of air power The first target of the in quiry had been B52 production which Democrats have charged is lagging did not refer to these charges Hemereiy noted that he had forewarned Congress in his budget message last Jan uary of the need for continued study and scrutiny of our mili tary WHAT HOLDS IT UPThe lumber storage binof the Driscoll Bros Lumber Co at Ithaca N balances pre cariously above a section of the washed away retaining wall of Six Mile Creek The wall was knocked out by llood waters brought about by the heavy weekend storms Bandit Gets Bump on Head at Hotel Moore Clarion masked bandit escaped with only and a bump on his head due to the quick

Program for Visiting Russ Chiefs Despite Protest LONDON UZVBritain is standing pat on the program already set up for the visit of Premier Nikolai Bulganin and Communist Chief Nikita Khrushchev a Foreign Office spokesman said Monday The statement followed an apparent Soviet bid for revisions The spokesman rejected a complaint of the Soviet leaders that some persons were trying to hinder them from seeing the British people on their 10day tour of the kingdom starting April 18 It is quite untrue to suggest that her maj estys government wants to prevent wider con tact between our visitors and the British he said In the course of their travels through the country they will have plenty of opportunity of seeing British people and their way of The spokesman told reporters the program had been agreed to by the Soviet government and was final Bulganin and Khrushchev told the Soviet news agency Tass in Moscow Sunday some forces in Britain do not want to permit wider contacts between Soviet leaders and the British The Russian leaders complained o The program still does not include visits to enterprises and institutions in Scotland and Wales or meetings with the population which is a mat ter for Their statement was made only 24 hours after exPremier Georgi Malenkov returned to Moscow after a threeweek visit to this country in which he scored what appeared to be a considerable personal success with ordinary British citizens It has been assumed by British officials that Malenkovs report on this trip in which he led a group of Soviet electrical experts and his ac counts of his receptions probably spurred his chiefs in taking astrorig line for more personal contacts with the people of Britain 5 Killed in Weekend Accidents BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Two Fort Madison men ar
