He claimed it was Stalin who had imposed Moscow's rule on world communism and charged it was now the Chinese who de-mandrd a "special role." In a speech televised directly to viewers in both East and West F.urope, Khrushchev declared it was necessary to give the Chinese a "resolute rebuff." j Khrushchev, reportina on his just concluded trip to Hungary, was stern hut used mild lan-maie in his condemnation of Peking. He apparently had in mind that his words could he heard as spoken by millions of Communists abroad who have not yet taken up a firm pro or anti-Chinese position. Mo cover, sweet reasonableness as opposed to Chinese in-transigeance is the line he has been taking in the dispute and he seemed determined to project that image. Khrushthev dropped any mention of a world meeting of Communists to take up the Chinese issue a proposal which has yet to meet with strong support in either Eastern or Western Europe but plugged for a series of bilateral meetings such as he has just had with the Hungarians. "Such meetings are especially imjiortant in the present conditions when the disruptive activities of the Chinese leaders have caused serious difficulties in the world communist movement." he said. The Kremlin suggested such a series of meetings last year and. at that time, opposed a world conference. Khrushchev appeared to return to this earlier position, but said nothing about dropping his surprise April 3 call for the multilateral parley. Observers considered his discretion on this point evidence that non-Soviet Communist parties are deeply split on the wisdom of an international conference. The Italians, for instance, have said they feared it would make the split permanent. Khrushchev also threw another sop to non-Soviet Communist parties in abandoning the Soviet party's claim to infallible dominance of the world movement. He blamed this claim on Stalin and said: "We have banished forever from our relations all elements of inequality, of imposing the experience and policy of one country on other fraternal countries. "In the great community of Socialist 'Communist' nations, there should be no great nations and shall, no infallible teachers and submissive pupils."

Miss Henneberger's body was found 3 hours after the accident. 8 feet deep. Werner was found an hour later 10 feet deep. Their bodies were flown to the Samedan District Hospital. Officials said they suffocated. Werner, who made his home in Steamboat Springs, Colo., was credited with heing one of the chief forces that made the United States a serious competitor in international skiing. But he never won an Olympic medal. HARD LUCK SKIER He was a hard luck skier throughout his career. He made his first big splash in the 1956 Olympics, when U.S. skiing was still a joke to Europeans. His failure then to win a medal brought him to tears. In I960, he was considered America's hope, but he broke his leg in training. In 1962 he won America acclaim by placing fifth in the giant slalom and eighth in the downhill at the world championships at Chamo-nix, France. Then in late January and early February, one of Werner's admirers. Jimmy Hcuga, 20, of Tahoe. Calif., captured one of America's first skiing medals In the winter Olympics at Innsbruck. Werner placed 17th in lhe men's downhill, was disqualified in the men's giant slalom and placed 8th in the men's slalom. Aft.T this performance, he told a newsman at Innsbruck he would retire. ' "Yes, I'm retiring." he said. "I haven't said anything: about it before but I'm packing it in as soon as the season is over. Joint Talks Conducted In Rail Row Management and I.alior Declared Making '(Jenuine' Settlement Trv WASHINGTON l? Labor and management representatives met in a face-to-face bargaining session Sunday under presidential pressure to settle the long-standing railroad dispute. President Johnson was not present when the meeting began at I p.m. EST., but he was expected to look in later. White House Press Secretary George E. Reedy said five special mediators talked until "late into 'the night" Saturday with representatives of five rail operating unions, preliminary to the joint Sunday session. Reedy said both sides were making "a very sincere, earnest, genuine try" to reach a final settlement of the four and one-half year old rail crisis that has threatened repeatedly to erupt in a nationwide strike. NEXT DOOR The sessions, which had been held in the White House, moved to the Government Olfice Building next door to the White House Sunday. Johnson persuaded both labor and management last Thursday to delay for 15 days their threatened showdown. The railroads had planned to put new work rules into effect eliminating some jobs and the on-train unions said they would walk out when that happened. The late President John F. Kennedy faced the same chrisis last year. Reedy said both sides were carrying out "genuine" collective bargaining on an "Issue by issue" basis. He declined to describe what progress was being made or the outlook for set-lement. "Obviously, whenever you call people into a session like this you nave some optimism of success," Reedy said. The dispute flared into its latest crisis last week when the unions went on strike against the Illinois Central Railroad. GENUINE DESIRE Reedy said both sides ap peared to show a genuine desire to settle the issues, although each felt his stand was correct. Labor Secretary W. Willard Wirtz and other top labor department and federal mediation officials sat in on Sunday's ses sion. The meeting was the first face- to-face session since the White House began its "active mediation" efforts, but joint meetings hed been held in the past and with President Johnson on Friday. Congress enacted legislation last summer prohibiting a national railroad strike for six months and imposing binding arbitration on the issue of whether to retain firemen on diesel locomotives. AO DAMAGE Anchorage Jarred by Aftershock ANCHORAGE. Alaska UP1. Another heavy aftershock, the strongest in nine days, jarred residents of this earthquake-wrecked city awake Sunday, but there were no reports of new damage. The ground rocked and dishes and windows rattled in the latest aftershock from the historic March 27 quake, one of the mightiest on record. Casualties in the devastating Good Friday upheaval and tidal waves stand at 114 dead or missing. Damage is estimated at $750 million. More damage may be imminent. Coastal communities in the sunken quake area rimming the Gulf of Alaska, and on the Kenai Peninsula and Ko-diak Island, girded for the growing threat of heavy flooding from high tides reaching their spring peak in the next two days. The quake is thought to have caused the land to sink from three to six feet in some places. In Juneau, Gov. William A. Egan watched the situation closely and received frequent reports of the flood peril as he prepared to fly back to Washington. Today's Radio Highlight BASEBALL KVVKH-l:l.i P.M.

I Johnson was accompanied to I the services by Mrs. Johnson, their daughter Lynda Bird, and Secretary of Defense and Mrs. Robert S. McNamara. After the services, the John, sons and the McNamaras went jto the parish hall for the weekly i coffee hour. They remained about 1 15 minutes, Johnson spending most of the time shaking hands. I Returning to the While House, President and Mrs. Johnson and the McNamaras took a stroll around the While House grounds. jThey walked to the southeast ;gate where a large group of 'tourists had congregated, apparently in the hopes of being invited 'in for a Johnson-conducted tour States Rusk Points To Quarrels In Red Bloc MANILA iP U.S. Secretary of State Dean Rusk told the Southeast Asia Treaty Organization 'SEATOi allies today "let us not lose sight of serious difficulties within the Communist world." In a prepared opening state ment at the first session of SEATO's 10th anniversary ministerial meeting, Rusk said internal quarrels "limit the capabilities of the Communist world. And the boast that communism was the economic shortcut to the future for developing countries has been proved false." The SEATO allies met with the shadow of Communist threats to Southeast Asia hanging over them as never before. Rusk cited South Viet Nam, Laos, the Malaysia dispute and economic problems of the whole area as serious issues that confront the area SEATO is pledged to defend against Red advances. But. he said, "here is the western Pacific the plight, of Communist China and North Viet Nam contrasts dramatically with the progress of the free countries of the area, including regional mem bers of SEATO. The split between the United States and France on what to do about the Red threat to the area hovered in the background as France's Maurice Couve de Mur-ville made his opening statement: He said the three-day SEATO meeting would not enable the allies "to harmonize our views and jointly to determine concerted policies." Rut he added, "an objective and friendly discussion should enable us to do away with myths, to eliminate ambiguities and squarely to face realities " such as he gave Saturday for some 100 tourists. This time Johnson didn't order the gate open so the tourists could icome in, but he reached through j the gate to shake many hands. I Johnson rode to and from the ! White House in a big. bullet -resis tant limousine with a Secret Service agent at the wheel and another in the front seat. Last week, in a departure from the usual security arrangement, Johnson went to and from St. Mark's in a medium-sized sedan with a liveried chauffeur and no Secret Service agents. Secret Service agents, however, were in following cars, as they were aeain Sunday. Properly Damage Is Heavy KANSAS CITY (.?) Two storm fronts rolled northeastward out of Kansas into Missouri and Iowa late Sunday, spawning scattered tornadoes that dealt widespread death and destruction in many areas. At least five persons were killed an 40 were injured. One line of thunderstorms started in east central Kansas and moved rapidly into southwest Iowa. Funnels lashed at a rural area near Lawrence and Bonner Springs and at Leavenworth in Kansas, causing only property damage. Crossing the Missouri River, the tw isters unloaded their debris just north of Kansas City, then moved on. In southwest Iowa, a funnel smashed into the small town of Yorktown, killing Mrs. Flora Eichhorst, 90, and injuring at least six others. Officers said about half the buildings in the business section of Yorktown were flattended, also a one-story school. Officers said the tornado uprooted trees, swept roofs off buildmgs and damaged most of the town, which has about 150 residents. The other line of thunderstorms started near the Oklahoma border in southeast Kansas, where a twister damaged power lines and trees near Edna. HURLS CARS. TRUCK Gathering strength, the storm produced another funnel that hurled a big truck and seven cars off U.S. 1R9-59 five miles south of Garnett, Kan., killing three persons and injuring at least six in the vehicles. Killed in one car were Warren Kenyan, 43. of Neosho, Mo., and his wife, Ella, their sons, Warren Jr., 22, and Terry, 13, were injured. In another car, Mrs. Jack L. Wilson of Independence, Kan., was killed. Her 26-year-old hus band and their 2-year-old daughter, Vickie, were injured. Also ihurt by the same twister were iLyle Rockey, 21, Troy. Kan.; W. G. Cardell. Garnett. and Christopher Lewis, 55, of Parsons, Kan. One of the cars was dropped into timber more than 500 feet from the highway, said Welcome Stanton, newsman of radio station KALN, Iola, Kan., who went to the scene. "I saw parts of cars and clothing, apparently from lug gage, hanging in the trees, 'Stanton said. "I saw a purse ; hanging from a tree limb. I ; could see tracks in the mud j where a car hit the ground about 200 feet from the high-way and then skidded along for about 20 more feet." j A huge tractor-trailer truck was piled up in a ditch with the ,cab jackknifed under the van. Stanton asked the driver what ! happened. "I got hit by a tornado," the driver replied. He was unhurt. The twister also smashed four farms in the Garnett area, and j the same storm front roared into ! Missouri south of Kansas City j and hit in or near the towns of Pleasant Hill, Lone Jack, War-;rensburg, and Lamonte. ! At pleasant Hill, a rural com-imunity about 10 miles southeast of Kansas City, a tornado killed :a 13 year-old boy and injured at least 25 persons. The twister touched down west !of Pleasant Hill and roared two miles along the ground through ;the northern half of the town. J More than 70 homes were reported damaged, j The dead boy, identified only ! as a grandson of Wes Miller, I was killed in a barn that collapsed on him. ; The tornadoes started forming about 3.30 p.m. in Kansas ;and still were breaking out over central Missouri at 8:30 p m. I Three persons were injured hy i the first one. They were Callie j Lewis, about 90, who lived alone jnear the rural community of Clinton. Kan.: George Pctcfish land his mother, Mrs. Daisy iFrtofish. who lived five miles i west of Lawrence. I Mrs. Lewis could recall only that she was in an upstairs jroom when the twister struck, i She was found sitting dazedly on the foundation. The house was gone.
