his rip ti Ihe United Stales Pretty well for gotten is the Tact that this was his second such tour of our coun try In 1936 he browsed around for three months with a spccia interest in meal packing canned foods and frozen foods A few ilems in his current re port can be guessed One of these is that Hungarians in America still loathe and despise that thing called Communism and the man called Mikoyan They took the lead in tossing stones and over ripe eggs at the Russian deputy premier Another item in the Mikoyan report to his superior if he is honest about it is that there is no disposition whatever in official Washington or in American pop ular opinion to yield even slightly in thc free worlds right to re main in West Berlin There is no such division on this as there was on Quemoy off the China Coast last year JUST WHAT the mustachioed Russian will have to say about future trade between USSR and U S is anybodys guess He could be quite optimistic if he based his report on his conversation with Clevelands oddball indus trialist Cyrus Eaton not SPORTS CAR WRECKED 2 KILLED This is all that is left of a small sports car after it collided with a semitrailer on Highway 6 near Jowa City Sunday night Earl Cooney 26 Riverside and front wheels Al Ihutofax John McLauglilin 27 Jowa City passen gers in the car were killed when it ap parently swerved in front of the truck and literally was run its left quite so optimistic if he confined his report to those with authority to speak on this subject And what is the one most si nificant thing about Comrad Mikoyan The mere fact thaiheis alive Hes known among Communist as the great This i a reference to his distinction o being the only socalled Old Bol shevik to occupya place of re sponsibilily in parly affairs in deed one of the few still alive And how has he managed this By being a human chameleon throughout his life He has had no convictions so fixed that thej couldnt be altered over night i needs be to save his preciou neck He was as close to the now downgraded Josef Stalin as he is at present to Khrushchev That no jnean achievement as Malen kov Mololov Shepilov Kagano vich and Bulganin can testify So could Beria if he were still alive FACT is that Mikoyan now 63 years old has been asso ciated with every major policy shift in USSR since the Commu nists came to power in 1917 His canny instincts have told him how
