Red China Would Talk It Over TOKYO (AP)—Communist China said today it is ready to hold private talks with the Soviet Union on the ideological issues splitting the Communist bloc. But it coupled this offer with a slashing attack on Premier Khrushchev for "double dealing" and demanded apologies. The Chinese Communist party made this condition for the peace talks proposed by Moscow in a 70,00-word editorial in the Peking People's Daily. It also demanded that the Russian Communists repudiate their renewed friendship with Yugoslavia and cease their attacks on Peking's tiny Balkan ally, Albania. The editorial and its slashing criticism indicated the Chinese- Soviet relations are as angry as ever despite recent public signs of attempts to ease the quarrel. The Chinese for the first time took public notice of (1) the Soviet Union's supply of MIG21-jet fighters to India, (2) the tearing up by Khrushchev of hundreds of Chinese aid contracts and (3) his bit ter opposition to Chairman Mao Tze-Tung's pet programs—the industrial leap forward and the peoples' communes. THE OTTAWA HERALD Wednesday, Feb. 27, 1MI A Kenned Plan For Cropland WASHINGTON (AP)-!** Kennedy administration announced inauguration of a new limited program to divert surplus crop land to other uses. The program will be limited this year to 41 test counties in 13 states. Congress authorized $19 million for the first year trial program. Soil bank costs went well above $300 million a year. The Agriculture Department said the plan is designed to improve family farm income by helping farmers convert land not needed for crops to some other long range, income producing us« such as forest, grass, water storage, wildlife and recreational facilities. Farmers will be given until March 22 to apply for participation in the program for periods of 5 to 10 years. Participating farmers will receive land adjustment payments, cost-sharing payments, technical aid, and in some states forestry incentive payments. Test counties include Crawford* Jackson and Jefferson in Kansas and Pike and Lincoln in Missouri. By BERNICE HOLDEN A farewell covered dish supper honored Mr. and Mrs. Alton Williams Wednesday night, Feb. 20, in the home economics room at Wellsville High School. WiU Block Cuba, Says Defense Chief WASHINGTON (AP) - Secretary of State Dean Rusk has pledged that Fidel Castro will be blocked from trying to export armed attack. His assurances seem unlikely to quiet the crack ling debate over the administration's handling of the Cuban problem. Rusk said in Houston Tuesday night that if Cuba tries to use arms outside its territory it "will be met with the armed forces of the hemisphere" and repeated that "a Soviet military presence on that island cannot be accepted." Use of arms by Cuba outside the island, he said, would be "intercepted, interrupted and stopped." "Cuba must not become a source of infection for the hemisphere," he told a Texas Daily Newspaper Association meeting. Senate Democratic leader Mike Mansfield of Montana said Rusk's statements "demonstrate the continued determination of the administration to cope with this situation in Cuba." There was some Republican skepticism. Sen. George D. Aiken, R-Vt, a Foreign Relations committeeman said, "I wish Secretary Rusk could make that determination retroactive, because the Russians apparently are occupying Cuba in force and I understand Soviet- made weapons are showing up in considerable quantities in other Latin-American countries." The supper was planned by firs. Robert Stauffer and Mrs. Job Hepner. Attending were the grade school and high school faculty members, heir husbands or wives. Mr. and tfrs. Williams will leave for Tal- equah, Okla., Sunday morning, March 3. Williams is high school guidance counselor and basketball coach. Mrs. Williams teaches second grade. Mrs. Helen Wilson, Baldwin, has been hired by the Wellsville school ward to teach the second grade, Filling the vacancy left by Mrs. Williams. Mrs. Wilson taught third grade here several years ago. Her husband is the junior high basketball coach at Baldwin. Guest speaker at Kiwanis Ladies Night was Marilyn Miller, library consultant in the state department of public instruction.
