THURSDAY & FRIDAY Double Feature — AND — 'HUMPHREY «.oo PETER IOGART RAY eSTINN ALSO CARTOON (Continued from Page 1) Almost 81 per cent of all vacation trips in the United Strtes are by automobile. SIGNS OF THE TIMES—A CIO and AFL merger took place in Cleveland, Ohio, just before Thanksgiving Unions gave fice turke\s to striMng emp'o\e of tl » ^eitner Electric Co Members of the independent United Electntil ttorkcis, tnev had been L. ^ing lor 17 weeks. The turkey handout was hailed as a preview of the upcoming CIO-AFL mer^r. (Continued from Page 1) seems to have" been repudiated by the Russians, he said. What Are Reasons? What, he asked, are the reasons for this year of Soviet "zigzagging?" Dulles suggested three possibilities: 1. It might be due to the element of confidence, flowing from a belief in Russia's increased strength. 2. It might derive from the Soviet's fear that new ideas would affect the compact structure of their system. 3. And it might be the result of a recrudescence of Stalinism which he believes is by no means dead in the Soviet Union. Dulles argued that the Russians have been a ble to pose new threats In the Middle East and South Asia by playing' on the emotionalism of those areas and by offering "apparent aid." Although Russia lacks consumer goods, she has big surpluses of obsolescent arms and has no hesitation about using them to further her own political ends, he said. No Quick Answers The council will discuss the prob expected to come up with any. quick answers w those massive' problems in their three-day meet-, Ing here. They are expected rather j to state the big questions they face and then look for the answers in the coming weeks and months. The current meeting marks a real turning point for the ministers. It is their first get-together since the Big Four heads of government agreed in -Geneva last July that hydrogen-atomic bomb war is unthinkable — then failed to agree on anything else. Higher S tikes The' "Western view is that the Soviets, convinced there will be no atomic war, have since Geneva been playing for increasingly higher stakes In the global power struggle which they call "competitive coexistence." In a modification of the "lick 'em or join 'em philosophy," the Russians are expected to intensify their drive to persuade, cajole or bribe as many non-Communist states as possible to adopt neutral roles. But the Russians are not trying exclusively to lure the uncommitted countries into declared neutrality between East and West, as valuable as that course is for propaganda purposes. They , also . are making a strong pitch for support of the Middle Eastern powers through offers of arms and other aid—for pay. The NATO ministers here are acutely aware of that Soviet tactic. Their major debate is expected to center on whether their previous policy of building up military strength is the way to meet this new challenge.

Cars driven by Bertha Bales, 517 S. 2lst St., and a cleaners' truck driven by Elmer Smith, 2300 Kenwood, collided at Main and 10th.
