JR GlobeGazette Editorial Research Bureau WASHINGTON Mans in stinctive fear of falling from a great height is something com mercial aviation always has had to combat Air travel is now an everyday method of transportation to large numbers of people Bu fear of getting off the ground is apt to recur whenever a spec tacular plane crash dashe scores of people to death So it is hardly surprising that loss of 147 lives in three airliner accidents in the first quarter of 1960 brought a dip in airline book ings SUCH PUBLIC reaction to ac cidents in air is understand able but actually irrational in light of the facts Many more people were killed in highway accidents over last New Years weekend than were killed in air line crashes in the whole year of 1959 374 deaths in three days on the roads as against 226 in 12 months in the air Yet despite wholesale slaugh ter on the highways hardly any one thinks of giving up travel by auto More than half of all trips of 200 miles or more are made by passenger car on our highly hazardous highways only seven per cent by commercial airliner on our much safer airways Fatalities on scheduled airline flights have been fewer than one per 100 million

100 million passen germiles None of the fatalities occurred on the new fastflying turbojet pure jet transports Accidents like the midair dis integration of a turboprop Elec tra over Indiana last March

North Iowa banker was found dead in bed early Tuesday Acting Cerro Gordo County coroner Frederick B Shaffer PARIS Nikita Khrush chevs performance at the sum mit meeting that failed to get off the ground indicates he is engaged in a struggle to main tain his claim to lead world communism Because of that a new cold war freeze may be in prospect comparable even to the danger ous 1948 Stalin days of the Ber lin blockade Unless he got an apology from the President of the Unit ed States Khrushchev insisted he could not negotiate with the US President This he added in an aside was a matter in volving the internal politics of the Soviet Union THE IMPLICATION is that I Khrushchev is engaged in a threesided struggle with 1 the Stalinists 2 the military and 3 the Chinese Commu nists who have

reckless adventures in peace making Khrushchev destroyer of the image of Stalin as a demigod seems tc have bowed to the Stalinists The Soviet chieftain has been required to kick overboard all he has built with great care over the past three years Ap parently in the Stalinist and Red Chinese view his peace gestures went much too far and threatened communism as a A CITIZENS RETURN President

accordingly has been putting more stress on qualifica tions of airline mechanics and on maintenance practices Suspicion that the Electra ac cident over Indiana resultec from an encounter with air tur bulence of a severity the plane was not built to withstand gave impetus to plans to require in stallation of automatic flight re corders on all airliners The re corders designed to survive fire and the impact of a crash would be expected to provide clues to structural failures en gine malfunctions or other causes of accidents that left no survivors to tell what went wrong TWO BAD airline crashes of the past six months bore strong signs of sabotage Both involved National Airlines planes one of which plunged into the Gulf of Mexico with 42 persons aboard last November and the other of whfch fell near Bolivia N C last January with a loss of 34 lives Growth of both commercial and private flying and expan sion of high speed jet flights make attainment of greater air safety a constantly more

toward Communism without exporting revolution or supporting it by overt forms THIS HAS BEEN costly to Communists in various areas In the Arab nation of Iraq for example Communists felt strong enough months ago to make a grab for the whole country They lacked only the assurance of Moscows support Khrushchev not only withheld it he advised them against moving In other backward formerly colonial countries where Com munism places its best hopes for expansion what looked Jike fairly cheap victories were sac rificed to Khrushchevs long range peace offensive He did not disavow the world revolu

Berlin Khrushchev told a sidewalk news conference he would fly to East Berlin Wednesday unless President Eisenhower made a public apology for U2 spy plane aggression against the Soviet Union Eisenhower refused and Khrushchev prepared an even bigger Berlin crisis even as the summit talks were dying It was clear the United States the flights To go further wouk be public humiliation before the eyes of the world and an admis sion that the Russians were the peace leaders and the West the aggressors Khrushchev has made it clear that such a treaty would end all Western rights in West Berlin

Khrushchevs formal state ment said I am ready to participate in a meeting with President de Gaulle of France Prime Minis ter Macmillan of Great Britain and U S President Eisenhower to exchange views

ready on the receipt of such assurance to par icipate in the summit confer ence THIS STATEMENT seemed to mean that the Soviet premier vas willing to get together with he Western Big Three but that any
