Editor BROADCAST SCHEDULE KGU USOO f WOI WTAD 9M Thus WSUL low City Ia Now We Know Mr Khrushchev NIKITA KHRUSHCHEV in his 12day visit in the United States has undoubtedly learned a lot of things about our coun try At least he has confirmed the reports received from some of his buddies including Anas tas Mikoyan These probably sounded just a mite exaggerated to him until he could see with his owij eyes But anybody who assumes that some magic formula has been arrived at by reason oi his visit here to end the cold war is naive indeed Russias dictator may and I think he must be impressed by the economic might of our country and the devotion to our way of life by our people He might be less inclined to push his bluff That however is as far as it goes THE FACT still remains that Khrushchev IS the government of Russia He is accountable to nobody Hes calling the tunes He rose to the dictatorship by a considerable measure of native shrewdness and cunning com bihed with a savage willingness to do whatever was heeded to get ahead This attribute in his makeup was reflected in that historic behind the scenes speech when he attacked Stalin and all his works post humously When somebody long since routed to Siberia or Outer Mbn Summit Talks Likely Praises Peoples Actions PHOTO FROM SPACE Photo at left Shows the first crude picture of the earths cloud cover taken from the U S paddlewheei

doubt asked him a very embarrassingquestion Where were you when Stalin was committing all these crimes he is quoted as hav ing said When Stalin said Dance I danced Now Nikita says Dance THE RUSSIAN PREMIER or chairman as he apparently prefers to be called has had his first real brush with de mocracy during his time here Hed be at home in a street fight or in a meeting where all the cards are stacked his way But he has proved himself a stranger in a strange land when confronted with the accepted rules and practices of a free society This began to manifest itself in Washington when he stepped out of his plane all smiles and bouncing with enthusiasm As the parade formed however and the people along the streets Iowas weather will turn cold of our national capital greeted him with a reserved politeness a wonderful example of dis ciplined the visitor from Russia quickly lost his ex cess enthusiasm BY CHANCE I arrived in Washington a short time after the reception for Khrushchev I walked over past the Russian embassy then past the Blair House where the Russian party was preparing for a first visit to the White House I wanted to see what security measures were being taken They were quite ample I assure you From one who had watched the parade first on the street then on TV which he found more I heard it suggested that President Eisen er after a weekend battered bj twisters
