Khrushchev began his his- toric .visit today with an ap- peal for "good neighborly" relations between Communist and capitalist states and a sharp reminder that the Soviet Union had beaten the United States in the race to the moon. President Eisenhower, wel- coming Khrushchev to Amer- ican soil, told the chubby Communist leader the United States could never launch an aggressive war because the American people rule the country and are devoted to peace. In the President's wel- coming speech was the clear implication that Russia has no such built-in restraints against aggression. While a curious but quiet- y unexcited crowd looked on at Andrews Air Force Base, the serious-faced Soviet lead- er heard the President ex- press the hopes of the United States for a "just, universal and enduring peace." THE TWO MEN. thus be gan in -the very first moments of their .exchange of visits a struggle for the, support ol world public opinion. Khrushchev's reference to his nation's success in put- ting a capsule on the moon, with the hammer and sickle emblem, was a frank boast of Soviet prowess in science. Almost in so many words he told the President that Amer- ican science would get to the moon sooner or later, too. It was a momentous scene n the gleaming sunlight of ie air base in nearby Mary- and. In a sense two worlds vere meeting for the first before had a naster of Soviet communism et foot on the United States.
