Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - May 14, 1959, Mason City, Iowa North Iowas Daily Newspaper Edited for VOL ft MASON CITY GLOBEGAZETTE i Tht Newspaper That Makes All North lowans Neighbors AuoclaUd ud United MASON CITY IOWA THURSDAY MAY 14 7o Copy Paper Consistt ot Tour m Nikitas Set for US Trip The Good Old Summit Time Draws Nearer By MARGUERITE HIGGINS Now York Herald Tribune Nwws WASHINGTON Vice Presi dent Richard is gentleman to whom the s sians should dofftheir broad brim hats if San Francisco is chosen as the site for the super summit And with the personal con frontation between Soviet Pre mier Khrushchey President Eisenhower and the other West ern leaders almost a foregone conclusion the choice of the Wests fairest and most exciting city would of course give the Russian leader the opportunity for a trip to the United States for which he has shown such unabashed eagerness MORE IT WOULD give Khrushchev the opportunity to see a wide the United States and the chance to display to the American people the stuff of which the Soviet leader is made a blend of homespun wit shrewdness toughness topped off by a way with people that can when he wants be most engaging disarming and ever so human No inscrutable Kremlin re cluse he There are a number of obvi ous reasons why Nixon should be an advocate of having the summit in San Francisco not the least of which of course being that California is his home state Another reason is related to the vast change that has taken place in the whole concept of a summit In the days of John Foster Dulles it had been that a summir had thor oughly p r le pared in ad v a n c and therefore the meeting of the chiefs of state HIGGINS wasvisualized as a brief session where the Big Four would merely tie the pret ty ribbons on the package hand ed to them by their deputies Under these circumstances the summit could be short Now the West has been pushed into accepting the fact that if there is to be any bargaining it is to be at the summit only Therefore the meeting has all the potential of being far longer drawn out than originally visu alized ANOTHER proSan Francisco argument is it would be easier because of constitutional prob lems for President Eisenhower to cope with a prolonged meet ing held in this country than one held abroad And since given a prolonged session he would undoubtedly have to go back

of times this would give Vice President Nixon Ihe chance to sit in for the President in these loplevel talks And although a number of Nixons friends and a number of Nixons foes wonder with ap propriately mixed emotions about the wisdom of participat ing in a summit session that holds such slight hope of suc cess there is no doubt that Nix on himself would like the exper ience of participating personally in Ihese loplevel negotiations Actually it was not until last week that Nixon let it be known through channels official and un official that he would be an ac tive proponent of San Francisco INDEED THE WORD embarrasingly late to the De partment of State which at the beginning of the week was still saying that no serious consid eration was being given to San Francisco as a summit site By mid week after it became known that Nixon himself had passed the word that San Fran cisco was very much under his consideration the department took the position that it did not necessarily object in principle to having the summit in this country or in San Francisco None the less there area number of officials who still wonder about the capacity of t h American people to take
