" "--1 -wfcoV V LITTLE ROCK, Ark. U. Russians Stretch Out 5-Year Plan MOSCOW, Sept. 25 (UP) Russia announced today it will stretch -Communist party boss Nikita Khrushchev's first five-year plan out to 1965 in order to tap new industrial potential in the drive to catch up with per capita production in the United States. THE REMAINING three years of the current five-year plan are "not sufficient" to develop the new enterprises and industrial centers made possible by newjy-discoverd sources of raw materials and power, the official Tass News Agency reported. "Not less than five to seven years would be needed for the carrying out of such great tasks," it said. The central committee of the Communist Party ordered preparation of a new seven-year economic plan by July 1, 1958. However, it said the current , five-year plan adopted in 1956 has "been successfully implemented.

Central High School today for their first full day's session reported they were pleased with their reception by the school's white children. The nine, who were sped to classes in an army station wagon convoyed by two jeeps filled with soldiers, returned at mid-afternoon to the home of L. C. Bates, state NAACP president. Therethey were met and taken home by their parents. ELIZABETH ECKFORD, 15, described Central as "just like any other school." Gloria Ray, who celebrates her 15 th birthday - tomorrow, said she had made several "good" friends among the student body at Central today. "I know they were sincere," she said. "You can just tell when someone, really wants to be friends." . ANOTHER of the group, Thelma Mothershead, said the Negro students did not remain together at lunch time in the school cafeteria but ate with their white classmates.

A lot of kids knew my name and introduced themselves. We got along real fine." Ernest Green was more interested in learning about the soldiers than in commenting on his first day at integrated Central High. "Man," he said, "when I go into the army, I'm enlisting in the 101st (Airborne Division). I'm gonna be a paratrooper and go i Fort Campbell, Ky." A spokesman at the office of superintendent of schools Virgil T. Blossom said registration at Central today totaled between 1,200 and 1,300 compared with a normal 2,000. At Lonj;, Long Last ST.

"Things are looking a lot better than they did .before," the Negro jazz trumpeter told newsmen early today after a jazz performance. HE SAID "it was just wonderful" the way President Eisenhower explained his action in sending troops to Little Rock. He said the President said "the troops are going down there and that's all right with me, it won't start any trouble." Armstrong, who last week accused President Eisenhower of having "no guts" in dealing with the Little Rock situation and announced he would turn down a' State Department invitation to tour Russia, changed his tune today. ' HE SAID HE had sent the President a telegram saying "if yoiu decide to walk into the schools with the colored kids, take me along daddy. God bless you," Armstrong said, "this is the greatest country and that's the only thing that smells," referring to segregation. "Everything else is fine."

Newspapers and radio broadcasts on every continent played it big, and there was some sharp criticism of developments in Arkansas. But, for the most part, people in Asia, Africa, Europe and Latin America approved President Eisenhower's action in moving troops into Little Rock. And the more responsible elements overseas adopted an understanding viewpoint. , THE COMMUNISTS and their satellites, of course, made propaganda capital of the situation, a fact to which Eisenhower alluded last night when he said "our enemies are gloating over this incident." Radio Moscow used the Little Rock integration fight to tee off on the United States in a series of bitter propaganda attacks, selfrighteously it aid: "It is hard to realize that all this is taking place in the 20th Century, in a country priding itself on its civilization, in a country proclaiming its democratic liberties for all to hear. THE U. S. INFORMATION Agency's Voice of America has been doing what it called a "factual, straight reporting job" on the Little Rock trouble, al though officials admit foreign reaction is growing "sharper in tone and more disturbed." "It's a story w can't ignore,' one TJSIA official said. In Tokyo, United Press correspondent Arnold Dibble reported that the Japanese-language press appeared to be deliberately underplaying the story, perhaps in fear of stirring up old antagonisms, while the English-"lanuage papers are giving it prominent display. SO FAR, there has been lit tie editorial comment in Asia, although Communist newspa pers in Hong Kong bragged that the United States was losing face in the Little Rock situation. And "face" in Asia is one of the most important aspects of living, for it im plies dignity, respect and position in the community. In Manila, nationally circulated newspapers delayed going to press for hours to get latest developments in the Little Rock story. None carried editorials, although a columnist for the Manila Chronicle struck a critical balance with praise for Eisenhower and biting comment on the Arkansas mobs. LONDON spokesmen . said American prestige in Europe has suffered la serious blow. They said Europeans, for so long on the other side of the fence of criticism, are using the Little Rock incidents as a safety valve to blow off some steam of their own. The French, for instance, smarting from past criticism of their treatment of North Africans, now have taken to bedevilling Americans with the pat comeback: "What about Little Rock?" Heat Soars, Skids NEW YORK, Sept. 25 (UP) The reported high temperature in the nation today was 106 degrees at Yuma, Ariz., the U.S. Weather Bureau said. The low was 15 degrees at Fraser, Colo.

One trooper struck a man on the head with a rifle and another man was slashed on the arm with a bayonet. At least a dozen persons were arrested in minor incidents. Most of the arrests came when nearly 500 persons gathered at the school and did not disperse as fast as they were ordered to. THE WHITE HOUSE President Eisenhower plans to meet with five Southern Governors early next week to discuss ways to achieve the early withdrawal of troops from Little Rock. The White House gays plans for the conference do not include Arkansas Governor Orval Faubus. ARKANSAS Governor Faubus says he will make a radio-TV address tonight on what he calls "the naked force being used against the people of my state." He indicates the speech will be broadcast nationwide.
