MASON CITY IOWA SATURDAY OCTOBER 21 If61 Paper ConsUU o Two On Wt 11 Housecleaning time again in Soviet Union By WILLIAM L RYAN BERLIN tf Nikita Khrushchevs heavy prop aganda artillery is zeroing in on his enemies The events at theSoviet Communist party congress in Mos cow suggest he is winning his struggle and setting the scene for announcement of a housecleaning It seems likely in fact that the purge already is well under way Probably it was started well in advance of the 22nd party congress at least at the lower levels But Khrushchev wants and apparently needs total victory This means at a minimum the expulsion from the Communist of those he labeled anti party in 1957 The congress can provide the machinery for Khrushchevs pur poses Awaiting formal approval are some new ideas concerning the statutes by which the Communist arty is Supposed to govern it self The changes may involve new methods for expelling anc 3unishing members who have rallen into disgrace There are in dications that new sins will be in vented such as failure to show sufficient devotion to the Commu nist cause or lack of faithfulness o the principle of collective eadership If Khrushchev has won heads will roll It will mean expulsion from the party and possiblj worse for former Premier Georg A racket in phony shelters A field day for con men By MEL S BIRTHDAY New York Herald Tribune News Service govern ment officials here are con cerned that because of real public worry on whether to build or buy a fallout shelter smart money operators are moving into that field selling high The officials none of whom be quoted are uncertain on how to warn the public against shelter peddlers and thus at least reduce possibility of a financial field day for confidence men One approach that seems most likely is for the Federal Trade Commission to make a special study of the situation If this happens and it wil occur quickly if the idea is adopted the FTC presumably would warn the public against phonies in the shelter field stressing particularly the neec to check into the credentials of anyone offering shelters for sale at any price This would be particularly true of salesmen who glibly plug readybuilt contraptions pre sumably offering assured pro tection or representatives of contractors offering to recon vert basements into places ut terly secure against hydrogen bombs As in any other scheme to bilk these officials point out one sure way to detect sharp practice is to watch out for a salesman who starts with a high price then keeps lowering it finally taking whatever cash is offered The reluctance of concerned officials to openly discuss the situation until they are reads to move is based on the belieJ that it may discourage the building or purchase of worth while shelters which govern ment officers from Presiden Kennedy down concede would be in the public interest But whatever course is finally decided upon to warn the pub lie it is expected to come quickly Malenkov for Lazar Kaganovich he onetime iron commisar of the Ukraine and a Stalin stalwart for old former Foreign Minister V M Molotov for former Prem ler Nikolai Bulganin and manj others There may be shocks outsidi the USSR too Those Commu rustsin parties abroad particu arly in the satellite nations whc lave failed to show sufficient de votion to Khrushchevs free wheeling interpretation of Marx ismLeninism maybe slated fo the political ax A new party is expected from this congress could well cover that phase of the purge which could bring down such men as Walter Ulbricht the Stalinist boss

of the Sher man Nursery Company Satur day announced he has offeree 10 to 15 acres located some where within the 500 acres o the Sherman Nursery property adjacent to the city of Charle City Cashman the chief executivi officer of the nursery firm made the offer in a letter to th Floyd County Public Hospita Veterans Memorial Committee He said the offer is contingen upon mutual agreement on the site seen At his last press conference President Kennedy told report ers he expected the government to announce in midNovember its proposals for a shelter pro gram presumably privately fi nanced by individual families Earlier after conferring at the White House with a group of visiting editors Kennedy was quoted as saying he thought an adequate family shelter shouldnt cost more than to It was impossible to learn how far shelter sharpshooters have already moved into what could be a lush financial field But presumably some have made hay or the concern among interested officials here wouldnt be so acute and barring any unfore legal difficulties whicl might arise Cashman explained he ha offered a choice of three site which would be ac cessible from either Highway 14 Highway 18 or Highway 218 The final decision on the sit will be made upon agreement between Cashman and the board of commissioners which will be in charge of the pro posed new hospital The com missioners will be appointed by the county board of supervisors from the ranks of veterans in Floyd County ONLY THE NfWSPAPER SAMf DATE 1tM4M rim muini TMHI ONLY THE NEWSPAPER gives you such good hunting You can always bag the facts you want when you read the newspaper Nikita waves corn cobs Small potatoes Russ now say of Bob Garst MOSCOW UPI Iowa farmer Roswell Garst was challenged Saturday by Soviet Premier Khrushchev and a Soviet farmer who claimed to have outstripped Garsts corn production Alexander Gitalov who spent time recently working on Garsts farm told delegates to the Soviet Communist Party Congress he had outdone Garsts corn production per acre on the Ukrainian collective farm where he leads a tractor team Gitalov was interrupted sever al times as he spoke by the voluble Soviet leader who vis ited Garsts farm on his tour of the United States When Gitalov told of his victory in the corn field Khrush chev jumped up and said You must write to Garst and tell him that we are now producing better and cheaper corn and more efficiently Minutes later during the speech Khrushchev signalled an aid who went out of the as sembly hall and returned with two large corn cobs Khrushchev waved the corn cobs over his head when he told the delegates they had been sent to him by school children who were getting twice the yield of Garst Think of what the school children will do when they grow up Khrushchev said Gitalov spoke favorably of his experiences on the Garst farm which is considered a showplace for American agri cultural methods Khrushchev interrupted at this point to We want Garst to know that we welcome honest competition with American farmers When Gitalov complained about the difficulty collective farms were having with trans portation Khrushchev broke in to apologize for the situation He also promised to do every thing possible to remedy the problem At the conclusion of the speech Gitalov handed the Soviet Premier a cluster of corn cobs from his collective farm TRAINING SESSION Troops
