MINN., WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 7, 1959 SINGLE COPY FOR 3RD TERM Price of Free Government Is Heavy, Warns Freeman By JACK B. MACK AY ST. PAUL (AP) — Gov. Orville L. Freeman, inaugurated today for a third term, warned the 198 lawmakers at a joint convention of Minnesota's 61st Legislature that "no price is too great to pay for freedom" and made it clear that the cost of making Tree government work will be heavy. Flanked by the seven black- robed members of the State Supreme Court and the state's constitutional officers, Freeman stressed that the state must raise standards of education, of humanitarian service, of economic growth and of personal and governmental integrity. House Speaker Sitting with the governor were newly-elected House Speaker E, J. Chilgren of Littlefork, a veteran of 32 years continuous legislative service, and Lieut. Gov. Karl Rolvaag, who was administered his oath the opening day of the Legislature Tuesday, Rolvaag presides as president of the Senate. The governor said he would discuss the costs of government in his budget message next Wednesday, when both houses meet jointly again. At that time he promised to detail the tax measures which he believes will equitably and prudently meet governmental costs. Highest in History Freeman plans to present a budget of 466 million dollars—the highest in history. This means that 84 million dollars more revenue will be needed in the form of new or increased taxes for the next two years. "The cost of securing the things we want in Minnesota—the cost of making free government work— this cost will be heavy," Freeman said. "And a portion of this cost must be met in this legislative biennium by additional revenue." He spoke of the challenge thrust at this country by the Communist nations. He talked of the role PLENTY OF PROTECTION — Automatic weapons provide protection for President Manuel Urrutia of Cuba as he arrives to address a student rally at the AN ABRUPT HALT University of Havana.

(AP Photofax) All Past Agreements Cancelled as Utilities Wage Negotiations Stop in ?e- Red Envoy Arrives in Cleveland Starts 13-Day Trip Through Country; Anti-Reds Gather CLEVELAND, Ohio (AP) —Anastas I. Mikoyan, No. 2 man of the Kremlin, arrived in Cleveland today to start a 13-day coast-to-coast tour. He bustled off a plane and down a double line of police. Several hundred picketing nationality groups were blocked back by ropes. Mikoyan tipped his hat as he got off a Capital Airlines plane about five minutes after it arrived at 10:10 a.m. Then he hurried inside the concourse gates to hold a brief news conference before leaving the airport. Cyrus Eaton, Cleveland industrialist, and his wife greeted Mi- koyan, Mrs. Eaton speaking in Russian. Should Wear Hat Mikoyan told her it was very- good to speak Russian 'with her, and solicitously advised the 75- year-old Eaton, who will be his host here, that he should wear a hat on his white-haired head, lest he catch cold. Several hundred Iron Curtain country nationality groups had gathered at the airport. They carried such signs as "Blackmailer," 'Mikoyan, your hands are red with Russian blood." During the flight he sat beside Soviet Ambassador Mikhail Men- shikov, who read him news from New York and Washington newspapers.
