Nikita Khrushchev a hard loser began winding up his mission to the United Nations Wednesday admitting defeat in such a blaze of anger that his aides had to one down the official transla ion of some of his remarks By turns irate and bitter vul gar and vituperative in his state ments to the UN General As sembly Tuesday the 66yearold premier seemed worn tired as he left his embassy on Park Avenue for one last defiant stand Khrushchev returned Wednes day to press for action on two more pet subjects colonialism and the American U2 spy flights Russia will compete in armsmaking he said a post script to his remark that it is urning out rockets like sau sages HE HAD BEEN beaten in his efforts to bring the disarmamen issue directly to the floor of the United Nations The vote was with 25 absten tions in favor of sending it to committee first Khrushchev who turns his emotions on and off as he sees fit turned to the newsmen and said in a flat voice Those that support the U S position can certainly celebrate victory They have put ofl once again a decision on dis armament and come closer to the possibility of war Aides hastily ran out after ward to correct the record He did not say war they said lease make it read closer to catastrophe They added on the phrase then there will be no war if here is disarmament Khrush chev himself had not said that BUT WHATEVER his words Khrushchev was a bitter man as le saw his last chance in this assembly go glimmering just wo days before his scheduled return home to Moscow He rose to address the as sembly in the afternoon session and called as expected for a meeting of heads of govern ments next March or April to discuss general and complete disarmament The American election he said made discus sion now fruitless US Ambassador James J Wadsworth had told newsmen he United States might quit the United Nations if Red China wins admission Khrushchev brushed off Wadsworth in a 22 minute harangue in which he said he could not pronounce the Americans name Replying to the Russian Wadsworth said he could pro nounce Khrushchevs name all right And in unemotional tones he said If the intervention we have just heard from the representa tive of the Soviet Union is typi cal of what he would have to say in a disarmament debate that is all the more reason it should not be held in this cham ber KHRUSHCHEV hat lost ground said Wadsworth re jecting the Soviet proposal to de bate the arms issue Wadsworth was a model of diplomatic decorum Khrushchev was whitefaced shouting The veins stood out on his head as he spilled out in temperate often vulgar words He even ridiculed Americans for chewing gum Nuclear war he told the delegates would kill even them You want to scare us with your arguments he saW to the Americans Well I must you have not got
