THURSDAY, JtJtY JO, BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE THREE Kremlin Chiefs Honor Red China's Chou En-Lai with Choicest Vodka By RICHARD KA81SCHKE MOSCOW (AP) — The Kremlin chiefs uncorked their choicest Vodka last night to honor Chinese Premier Chou En-lai and Vietminh Deputy Premier Pham Van Dong, tri umphally touring homeward from the Geneva conference. Toasts by the dozen to peace and coexistence were hoisted at a gala reception given by Soviet Foreign Minister V. M. Molotov for about 1,000 persons, including Western dip lomats and newsmen. The get-friendly theme was * " " pitched mainly at British Ambassador Sir William Hayter, who sat *t the head table with the guests of honor and top Russian officials. In a jovial moment toward the «ftd of the party, Soviet Communist Party Secretary Nikita S. Khrushchev raised his glass to the British diplomat. "You British don't want to capture Leningrad," Khrushchev said, "and we don't want to take Glasgow." Prettier Town "Leningrad is a very nice town, prettier than Glasgow," Hayter smilingly replied tf. S. Embassy officials passed up their invitation to the big Spridanovka House reception. It arrived just a few hours before the party started. The Americans wouldn't have gone anyway, Jje- cause the United States does not recognize Choii's Peiping regime. Premier Georgi Malenkov topped the guest list of government leaders, Moscow bigwigs, foreign diplomats and Western correspondents. The Premier was amiable and all smiles but he offered no toasts. As the vodka compliments mounted toward half a hundred around the head table, Khrushchev and Internal Trade Minister Anastase I. Mikoyan grew especially animated and high spirited. Even after all the guests rose to leave, Khrushchev kept tipping his glass with the British ambassador in an exchange keard by newsmen nearby. "Now we don't want any war, and we are not afraid of each other," the party chief said. Linking his arm with Chou's, he added : "Now here's a good, example of friendship—the Soviet Union and China. That's how we all should l>e friends." "I'm the secretary of the Soviet Communist party," Khrushchev continued, "but in this question of coexistence, Prime Minister Churchill of .Great Britain .is in complete agreement with me. Len in laid down this principle—and very rightly." Sailor Stricken While Taking Training Dive WASHINGTON Lf> A young sailor, stricken while undergoing a training dive, was hospitalized in critical condition early today after more than 39 hours in a drum-like chamber to adjust him to normal atmospheric pressure. Arthur L. Appleton, 24, a machinist's mate from Carbondale, HI., was sent to Bethesda Naval Medical Center at 3 a. m. for treatment and a diagnosis of what caused him to collapse during a simulated deep- sea dive. Lt. Comdr. Walter A. Wilson, who heads the diving school at the Naval Gun Factory here, called Appleton's mishap "a bizarre case." He said he could find "none on record like it." Appleton, in diving gear, submerged in a special tank to a pressure equalling that of 100 feet Tuesday morning. He complained to a companion of feeling dizzy. Raised to the surface, he was hurried into a decompression chamber. Naval medical officers and hos- pitalmen worked constantly to bring in East Berlin -and Warsaw on their way from Geneva.

DDC, N, J, (&)— A wiry, one- eyed non - commissioned officer with six years of Army service behind him yesterday was cleared of charges that he kept 225 recruits at bone-taut attention for an hour in 92-degree heat. Sgt. 1. C. Richard J. Witbeck, 24 of . Wellington, Ohio breathed a sigh of relief as a three-man, special court-martial board of three of his superior officer acquitted him after deliberating 40 minutes.

The verdict thus wiped clean the slates of the two principals brought up on charges as a result of the June 21 punishment formation during which men were said to have passed out in the broiling sun, been revived with pails of water and forced back into line.
