Union is making greater eco nomic strides than the United States and that the govern ment should do something about it He said there is no chance that the Soviet economy will surpass this countrys during this century despite Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchevs boasts that it will be done in the next seven to o years Nixons speech billed as a major discussion of the na tions economy was delivered at the 40th annual convention of the national Junior Cham ber of Commerce in St Louis Mo It was one of a scries by the Republican presidential aspirant on national issues as he begins to step up his cam paign for the Republican nom ination for president The critics argue that if we would just adopt their pet economic philosophy we too would grow like the Soviets Nixon said They invited us to join them in playing what is rapidly becoming the most fashionable political parlor game of our game we might well call growthman ship Nixon said it is unfair to compare the Soviet and US systems because the Soviet Union is rebuilding after the war and its economy is still primitive He hit at those who say this nation is more inter ested in fancy automobiles than in solid economic growth Nixon advocated govern ment holp to private industry whenever necessary but oth erwise stuck to generalities in his discussion of economy FROM OUR WIRE SERVICES of State Christian Herter told Con gress Tuesday that President Eisenhower is abandoning per sonal highlevel diplomacy and plans no further good will trip to other countries Herter told a Senate Appropri ations subcommittee the ad

outstanding issues Herter said damage to US prestige in the Far East as a re sult of the forced cancellation of the Presidents visit to Tokyo has been overdrawn DEFENDING THE adminis trations foreign policy against Democratic criticism Herter denied that this program has been a great flop He acknowl edged there have been some setbacks however and ad mitted that US officials mis gauged the political turmoil in Japan which blocked President Eisenhowers trip to that coun try But despite our deep disap pointment at the outcome of the summit Herter said and de spite the propaganda campaign being waged against us it ap pears that the basic conditions of the world situation have not so far been greatly changed Herter admitted under critica questioning by Chairman Lyn don Johnson DTexas that the State Department misgauged the size of the Japanese riots and disregarded recommneda tion of high congressional lead ers that the trip be cancelled earlier JOHNSON COMMENTED Not only was our judgment bad but our information was bad When Johnson demanded to know who made the incorrect evaluation Herter said From all the information we received it was a collective judg ment but You can pin it on me if you like Herter said that despite the setback in Japan the Senate should go ahead and ratify the Japanese treaty There is no question but that withdrawal of the invitation was a very unfortunate development We dont minimize it but we have to analyze all the fac tors in the picture Herter said Herter said he would discuss the Tokyo fiasco and some other matters including the Cuban
