Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - December 12, 1964, Mason City, Iowa Reds set date for parley Will begin on March 1 MOSCOW AP The Soviet Communist party announced Saturday that preparations for a world Communist conference will begin March 1 But the new Kremlin leaders apparently failed again to win Red Chinas approval The party newspaper Pravda published the new date for a preparatory meeting which former Premier Nikita S Khru shchev had originally scheduled for next Tuesday Khruschev had called for 2i Communist parties to prepare for a full conference of more than 80 parties in mid1965 The Chinese and their allies in the bitter ideological dispute between Moscow and Peking said they would not attend Some Soviet allies were reluc tant to come for fear the confer ence would bring a permanen split in the world Communis movement According to Communis sources the Soviet leaders wh took over from Khrushchev Oct 14 delayed action while trying t win Chinese approval Sue countries as Poland applie pressure for another Sovie unity bid Pravda said the March 1 dat was set on the basis mutua consultations conducted amon fraternal parties with the aim o better preparation for th meetings The consultations are believe to have taken place during th gathering of Communist leader here for the Nov 7 anniversar of the Bolshevik Revolution Chinese Premier Chou Enla came but his talks with the So vict leaders seemed from publi indications to have left the dis pule as harsh as ever According to Western dip matic reports reaching her from Peking a Soviet letter was written to China proposing post ponement until March and em phasizing that the meetings would seek to achieve unity The reports said the Chinese spurned the letter saying their stand was well known the call for the meeting was illegal and the meeting was intended to wreck the Communist move ment The Soviet party maintains that the lastworld Communist conference in 1960 left the Rus sians with the right to call an other meeting on their own au thority The Chinese have chal lenged this The Kremlin apparently com municated the Chinese reaction to its allies as proof of Soviet charges that the Chinese are unreasonable and then went ahead with the public announce ment of the March 1 meeting Among the 26 parties for the March l meeting two Commu nist countries Romania and Cuba are doubtful Romania in particular has indicated it might not attend In addition to China the Al banian North Korean and Japa nese parties have said they will not attend North Viet Nam and Indonesia also are expected to stay

Mrs Smalldridge a diminutive grandmother of six is qualified to answer the ques tion about has been a flying instructor for 22 years Qualified or not the attrac tive mother of four is far too

good a pilot as a good man pilot Mrs Smalldridge says Granting that most women dont have the mechanical abil ity of men Mrs who actually started flying in out however that women have an advantage in precision flying Women generally have a lighter touch she observes and that is what it takes in precision flying Also she says women usually go into more detail and as a rule their coordination is just as good as men Coordination is one of three prerequisites for any good pilot or Small dridge contends The other two are average intelligence and de sire There is no difference be tween giving flying lessons to men and women Mrs Small dridge adds Each student has his or her own problems and what may be difficult for one student is easy for another In all her years of giving fly ing
