Protocol WASHINGTON dent Eisenhower said today le intends to meet Nikita S. at the airport when the Soviet Premier ar-! rives here Sept. 15. This resolved the protocol question of whether Khru- shchev will be received as chief of state or as head of the Soviet government. If he were to be received as head of government, under strict protocol he would be welcomed by Vice President Richard M. Nixon. Eisenhower lold a news conference that as chairman of the Soviet Council of Min- sters, Khrushchev in effect s head of state. There had been some indi- cations previously that some- thing a little short of the full No. 1 ceremony might be set up for Khrushchev. THE DECISION, however, was up to Eisenhower. On a related subject, Eisen- hower said one purpose of his trip to Europe is to pledge Western unity "in opposing, by force if necessary, any ag- gression" against the allies. The President also told thej news conference that on his trip, starting Wednesday, he wants to pledge once again "America's.devotion to peace with honor and justice." Eisenhower met with news-! men about 14 hours in ad- vance of his scheduled de- parture for conferences with eaders of West Germany, Jrilain and France. His talks with them will be a prelude to his discus- sions with Soviet Premier Vikita Khrushchev in Wash- ngton starting Sept. 15, and :o his own planned visit to the Soviet Union later in the fall.

"There is no doubt what- ever that the interests of the United States and the free jworld will be vigorously, firm- ly and aggressively represent- ed by the President in this meeting."
