The growing disbelief of a mother that the woman vic- tim is her missing daughter and the results of an autopsy both tended to cast doubt on tentative identifications. Wednesday a Pasadena cou- ple, Mr. and Mrs. John Ewy, said they believed it was pos- sible the dead woman was their daughter, Mrs. Janet Hodges Whaleyj'riS, of Santa Maria. Sheriff Frank Bland offered the theory that the male victim might be her husband, Richard Whaley, 22.

Thomas Taylor said, used to kill the 46-year- old1 Simpson as he and his ficult, even by checking of fingerprints. Probably the most telling iiece of evidence against the dentification of the woman as Mrs. Whaley. was the cor- oner's report that an autopsy showed the victim was not iregnant. Mrs. Ewy told po- ice her daughter is four months pregnant. ALSO MRS. EWY said she did not know her daughter to have any tattoo marks on her.

Eight to 10 others were reported seri- ously hurt. The Baltimore and OhioV Diplomat, running about on time, struck the loaded bus at a.m. at a crossing marked by a flashing light and bell. The signals were operating at the time, the rail- road said. The bus driver, Leroy Campbell, 49, told authorities that after the bus stalled he opened the door and tried to get the children out. After a half-dozen or so scrambled out the door, the rest Jammed the doorway, blocking it.

Khrush- chev, winging into Washington Tuesday, will be wel- comed by President Eisenhower, Vice President Richard M. Nixon, 10 bands and honor guards from all (he U. S. armed forces. The White House announced today some details of the planned red-carpet welcome, and also said that Khrush- chev's arrival time at Andrews Air Force Base will be a. m., E.D.T. A 125-foot-long red carpet, the same one used to wel- come other foreign dignitaries, will be laid at the airport for Russia's biggest Red to walk over. Some 400 Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine troops will be on hand as an artillery battery booms out a 21- gun salute within seconds after Khrushchev's big TUI14 turboprop jet touches down after what is expected to be a nonstop flight from Moscow. THE FAMED U. S. ARMY BAND will be at the air- and will play the Soviet national anthem and the Star Spangled Banner shortly after Khrushchev's arrival. Eight other bands will be stationed along the-15-mile route to the Blair House, where the visiting Soviet leader will. stay. All pf these will be military bands except for the Washington metropolitan police unit Eisenhower is expected to ride in his bubble-top limousine with Khrushchev from the airport along with Mrs. Khrushchev. bus broadside, knocking the vehicle down the track on its side 40 to 50 feet. Campbell, who owned the bus, has driven the same route for four years. He has a safe driving record with the county school system for iatton. more than 20 years. No one seemed to know what caused the bus to stall on the crossing. Campbell and all the in- jured were rushed to Garrett County Memorial Hospital at Oakland, four miles away, by every available ambulance, station wagon and car that could be summoned quickly. Oakland is about 40 miles west of Cumberland, and about 180 miles west of Bal- timore.

"It sometimes seems as if China is acting like some 19th century nation in their pride and arrogance, ignoring the rest of the Nehru said. The Indian leader, who has based his foreign policy on non-alignment in East-West quarrels, appeared deeply dis- turbed by Chou's letter. REFERRING TO a Peiping Imd voted to pass a bill over an Eisenhower veto. The Sen- ate twice has done so, but in each instance the House backed the President. The first public works bill of the session carried 30 million over Ei- senhower's budget. IN HIS VETO of this meas- ure, Eisenhower centered his objections on 67 starts for new projects not included in his budget. He said these eventually would cost 800' million. The House on Sept. 2 up-, icld this veto by one vote. The new version of the the the legislation contains all 67 new starts, but cuts funds for all projects by 2V4 per cent. Its total Is under the budget. Eisenhow-. cr said it wos worse than the first bill because it had re- duced funds for work already under way.
