Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - June 27, 1963, Mason City, Iowa t Hint K will take cosmonette to Germany with him VALENT1NA TERESHKOVA BERLIN is specu lation that Premier Khrushchev may bring Soviet spacewoman Valentina Tereshkova to East Ber lin Friday in an attempt to offset President Kennedys triumphant visit to West Berlin Observers said the Soviet lead er will have to do something spec tacular to whip up enthusiasm among the East Berliners There has been speculation that Khrushchev might reveal a new Soviet policy on Gentian prob lems But the general feeling is that he is too busy disputing with the Red Chinese to take on the West for a new period of acute tension There is little chance however that even the 26yearold space woman could bring out the crowds or arouse the enthusiasm that greeted Kennedy in West Berlin Wednesday Gerhard Goetting an East Ger man Communist party official said during a roundtable discus sion with East Berlin newsmen that The visits of Khrushchev and Kennedy cannot be com pared Khrushchev said Goetting was coming to support East Ger manys policy of peace as well as to honor East German Com munist boss Walter Ulbricht who be 70 Sunday Kennedy did nothing but aid the West German militarists who want to start another war He never said a single word in West Berlin about the necessity of keeping peace in the world Goetting said Khrushchev is scheduled to land at Schoenefeld Airport on the out skirts of the citys Soviet sector and drive in a motorcade to the East Berlin city hall the East German news agency ADN re ported Khrushchev will be given a re ception by the city government then go to Ulbrichts residence It was not known how long Khrushchev would stay in East Berlin Western observers said the Khrushchev visit was an at tempt to counteract the over whelming reception Kennedy has received in West Germany They said that Communist dis may over Kennedys sevenhour Wednesday visit was reflected Tuesday when Red border guards slowed Berlinb o u n d traffic The guards at checkpoints at each end of the 110mile high way to the city delayed buses up to two hours at the West German end and up to Wi hours at the Berlin end as they asked travelers if they were entering the city for the Ken nedy visit A warm demonstration of friendship of the German and American people during the visit of President Kennedy ap parently made it necessary to freshen up Ulbrichts damaged prestige on somewhat short notice said Karl Guenther von Hase West German press chief The announcement of Khrush chevs trip caught Communist
