Price 7 Cents MAO GOING TO BIG RUSS CELEBRATION Khrushchev Said Seeking Summit Parley of Red Chiefs " Hong Kong, Oct. '26 (JP) Red China's chairman, Mao Tze-tung, has accepted a Soviet invitation to attend the 40th anniversary celebrations of the. Bolshevik revolution In Moscow next month, Peiping radio announced today.; . The broadcast 'Said . Nikita Khrushchev, the Soviet Communist party-boss, had invited Mao and that the Central Committee of the Chinese Communist party had decided to place Mao at the head of the Chinese delegation to the Moscow celebrations Nov. 7. There ' have been' reports that Khrushchev is anxious to call a summit meeting' of Communist leaders ' to match an impending high-level conference of Western government leaders. The Peiping announcement came only a few hours after it was announced that President Eisenhower and Britain's Prime Minister Macmillan would attend the December NATO meeting in Paris. There has been much speculation that the Soviet Union would use the occasion of the anniversary for some spectacular announcement. This speculation has increased since the Soviet Union launched its earth satellite and announced it had successfully fired an intercontinental ballistic missile. At the least, Western quarters expect Moscow to use the day to parade an arsenal of missiles and other modern weapons. Mao is taking a high powered delegation with him. The delegation includes Mrs. Sun Yat-sen, widow of the founder of the Chinese Republic; Deputy Premier Teng Hsiao-ping, general secretary of the Chinese Communist party, Peng Teh-huai, defense minister and Kuo Mo-jo, leader of the intellectuals in the party. Kuo is president of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. The announcement did not say when the Mao delegation will leave for Moscow. President Tito of Yugoslavia was also reported invited for the Moscow celebrations.

U.S. Ambassador A m o r y Houghton gave that word to the French government in Paris today. This provided official con- " firmation to widespread diplomatic reports here yesterday that Eisenhower would make such a trip. Houghton told Christian Pineau, foreign minister in France's out-going government. that Eisenhower and British Prime Minister Harold Macmil-I lan intend to attend the December meeting of the NATO ! council. j A statement issued by Eisenhower and Macmillan yesterday at the conclusion of three days of talks here contained a hint that the council meeting might be converted into a summit session one attended by heads of government. The NATO Council meeting normally would bring together the foreign ministers of the 15 member nations. Plans Incomplete ' Plans for a summit meeting still were being formulated, but j it seemed obvious that it would be diplomatically difficult for (Eisenhower to consult with per-' sons of lower rank foreign i ministers or ambassadors. And it seemed equally obvious that the heads of government of the other NATO members 'would welcome any plans they have for revision of Allied defense systems to meet the Soviet move for military supremacy. In their Joint statement the i U.S. and British leaders sounded a call for action to reinforce allies all over the world "with the deterrent and retaliatory power of nuclear weapons." The words were contained in a 1,500-word "declaration of common purposes" issued at the end of their strategy talks. Eisenhower last visited Europe in 1955. He went to Geneva then for a summit conference with, the premiers of Britain, Russia and France. British newspapers predicted that he would stop on any European trip in December, to visit Queen Elizabeth II in London. On her visit at the White House last week, the Queen was reported to have sounded out Eisenhower on the possibility of a trip to England. Hopes Chiefs to Attend Highly qualified diplomatic sources said Eisenhower hoped ItliP chiefs of government of all e NATO members would be : present. That would make it ! the most authoritative gathering iin the Western world since j World War II. " I Within hours, Prime Minister ! John Diefenbaker of Canada, an-Inounced in Ottawa he would be ! in Paris for the meeting and j diplomatic informants in Bonn said Chancellor Konrad Adenauer of West Germany also could ' be expected to make the trip.'
