Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - February 17, 1960, Mason City, Iowa North Daily Newspaper Edited for HM VOL M MASON CITY GLOBEGAZETTE T h Newspaper That Makes All North lowans Neighbors MASON CITY tOWA WEDNESDAY FEBRUARY 17 1940 Copr Thl of roar Pren ted OaUed frtu iBternattotia run Wlnf Union workers expected to approve pact with Wilson A Nobel prize to Nikita Report has it that Russia is making plug By BARRETT McGURN New York Herald Tribune News Service ROME Intriguing new de tails in a story of the Kremlins effort to get the next Nobel Prize for Soviet Premier Khrushchev have come to light The piece de resistance is that Khrushchev would be agreeable to sharing the prizewith Presi dent Eisenhower or if the Pres ident is not a candidate then some other suitable person The first inkling that Khrush chev was after the prize that would stamp him in the eyes of millions as the man of peace he wishes to appear was car ried last week by the Italian News Service Agenzia Conti nentale There has been a tend ency in some parts of the world to regard the story as something of a jest in view for example of certain recent events in Hun gary ON THE CONTRARY how ever investigation has disclosed that the story is authentic The Herald Tribune News Service has learned that on instruction from the Soviet Moscow Mikhail Girgoryevich Gribanov the Soviet ambassa dor in Oslo called on Gunnard Jahn chairman of the Nor wegian Nobel committee on or about Jan 31 He also talked to certain other members of the committee According to reliable informa t i o n Ambassador Gribanov sounded out the committee about the nomination of Khrushchev as a candidate for the I960 Peace Prize which will be awarded next Dec 10 In conformity with the will of the donor the late Dr Alfred Nobel the prize is awarded an nually to the person who shall havemost or best promoted the fraternity of nations and the abolishment or diminution of standing armies and the forma tion and extension of peace con gresses The will also provides that no consideration whatever should be paid to the national ities of candidates THE DEADLINE for submis sion of candidates was Feb 1 Ambassador Gribanov requested that this be extended until Feb 7 and according to an informed source this was quietly done Since the fiveman committee which is appointed by the Nor wegian Parliament does not re veal the names of candidates it is not known for sure whether the Russians formally submitted Khrushchevs name after Grib anov sounded out Jahn They may not have done so In a sense however this is ir relevant because the interesting thing for the light it sheds on Mr Khrushchevs efforts to build a peaceloving image of himself is that he sought the prize at all In his approach to Jahn Ambassador Gribanov ac cording to the information here suggested Khrushchev as a can didate in his role of private cit izen rather than as Premier OVER THE YEARS the Nobel Peace Prize has gone to such figures as former Secretaries of State Frank Fellogg and Cor dell Hull Nicholas Murray But ler former president of Colum hia University Viscount Cecil of Chelwood Jane Addams and the Archbishop of Sweden The prize carries an award of 650 In the past the committee has shied away from giving the award to a statesman in office The reason for this is that the time might come after the award when in the discharge of his duties such an official might be forced to take steps that would be out of harmony with the spirit of the prize A typical example would be the case of former British Prime Minister Anthony Eden who made many contributions to peace but then ordered the Brit ish attack on Suez AP Photofax MINISTER AIDS IN PACT The Rev Lloyd A Peterson Albert Lea is credited with a major role in reaching of a tentative

said It rose in grammar school children and reached a peak among those of high school ages and young adults Then the rates dropped abruptly among older adults The modern American system of education particularly the crowded consolidated high school which is now almost universal throughout the country and its system of school bus transportation probably permits a maximum of transmission among teenage groups he added Vote will be taken Thursday Tentative OK given CHICAGO UPI Striking members of the United Packing house Workers of America meet Thursday to vote on an agree ment designed to end their bit ter strifetorn walkout against Wilson Co Tentative agreement to end the 106dayold strike was reached Tuesday night largely thanks to the efforts of a Pres byterian minister who succeed

Secretary Dudley Sharp ordered an investigation immediately upon learning of the existence of the manual It reported the manual already had been withdrawn by Air Force headquarters on Feb 11 The statement said Secretary Sharp categorically repudiated the publication as representing Air Force views He has directed an Air Force inquiry into the circumstances of the development and issu ance of this manual including names of individuals respon sible As evidence the council cited such statements in the manual as this There appears to be overwhelming evidence of Com munist antireligious
