Opening his-historic first meeting with the Kremlin command, Adenauer also pleaded with Soviet Premier Bulganin, Communist party boss Nikita Khrushchev and Foreign Minister Molotov to "dedicate all your energies" to speedy conclusion with the Western Big Three of an agreement to reunify Germany. Bulganin in reply ignored the question of the war prisoners. On reunification, he repeated the Russian claim that West German membership in NATO and the Western European Union formed the big ba rrier to reunion of West and East Germany. The Soviet Premier urged the RStablishment of normal diplomatic relations between the two governments, asserting that closer contacts thus established would help in finding a solution to the unification problem.

The plan was described this way; About 40 million acres of privately held farm land would be rented by the government at an average price of more than $10 an acre. Farmers who received, the rental payments would be required to plant soil-building crop» on the acres leased by the government and they would be forbidden to use the land to grow crops for home consumption or marketing. Will Be Diverted The 40 million acres represent land that will be diverted by government acreage allotments from production of the six "basic" crops —wheat, corn, cotton, rice, peanuts and tobacco. The Herald Tribune story noted that the government now is enforcing acreage controls in an effort to curb overproduction. ''But the administration has found," the story added, "that its control scheme works badly because farmers use land that has been diverted from the six 'basics' to grow other crops."

Will Tobey, at 64 the political "strong man" of his ticket, be able to seek re-election Nov. 10? If elected without campaigning could he hold the job? It all depends on his physician's observations. Doctors said they could not yet determine whether the attack was severe or mild. "It usually takes from 24 to 48 hours to tell how serious an attack of this kind proves to be," said one.

Carey criticized what he called the "self- serving, greedy tactics" of the administration, which he said is dom- innted by "big business and corporation thinking." Peikens said in an interview he doesn't believe the activities he said some major unions are making in behalf of Democratic candidates can thus be ignored.

He said his Democratic administration built up "a very powerful military establishment." "The present administration has seen fit to cut it down below the goals which we had established, but is still represents very great military strength," he said.
