One showed that fanners hnd 11 per cent more cattle and calves on feed Jan. 1 for quality slaughter markets than a year earlier. The number—0,489,000 head—was the largest of record for the date.

Police said Louis Bix, in his mid-30s, was shot to death in a pool hall early today and that his body was placed in the car by the gunmen. Held without charge for ques- j tioning were Morris Reznick of St. j Louis Park and Sigmund Starr of JFridley, Detc. Inspector Charles Wetherille said. As Reznick was being brought] into an interrogation room he was accosted by a man police said was one of Bix's brothers. Wetherille said Bix had been playing cards in the pool room when the gunmen attacked him. An argument apparently led up to the shooting, Bix was shot In the head. After the shooting, Wetherille said, an attempt was made to clean the blood from a pool table and the floor. Later, he said, Bix's body was placed in his car. No Report on Visit byNikita WASHINGTON (AP) — 'resident Eisenhower and Soviet Deputy Premier Anastas I. Mikoyan conferred for an hour 45 minutes today. The Russian leader dig- Bussed at least five outstand- ng East - West issues with .he President but failed to offer any new proposals or oncessions. White House press secretary James C. Hagerty said Eisenhower and Secretary of State Dulles agreed with Mikoyan that the .alks had been useful. Among the subjects discussed, Hagerty said, were the Berlin situation, the questions of Germany, disarmament, increased trade, and freer exchanges of persons between Russia and the United States. No New Proposals "I can also say," Hagerty added, "there were no new proposals during this discussion." Hagerty made clear his comment referred specifically to speculation in advance of Mikoyan's arrival here that he would probably bring some new proposals or offers of concession on the Berlin situation. The press secretary said there was no mention of any visit by Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev to the United States nor a visit of Vice President Nixon to the Soviet Union. There had been speculation about such visits. Gone A« Far Hagerty declined to answer directly when asked whether tho subject of a possible summit conference or a four power East-West meeting came up. He said "I've gone as far as I can." Hagerty also said he could not answer when he was asked whether Eisenhower was "more or less hopeful" as a result of his talk with Mikoyan. When the meeting in Eisenhower's office broke up, Mikoyan appeared briefly before reporters. He said he and Eisenhower had a useful exchange of views and that 16 had conveyed greetings from Premier Khrushchev to Eisen- lower. Responsive Message Mikoyan said he had received a responsive message from Eisenhower of greetings to Khrushchev. Hagerty said that of course the President had. responded to Ihs greetings in the manner Mikoyau described. The slight, 63-year-old Armcni-' an, No. 2 man in the Kremlin, made his statement to reporters n Russian with his interpreter, Oleg Troyanovsky, translating. Good Humor Mikoyan appeared in good humor after his White House session. He went directly to the Soviet embassy after the meeting. An embassy spokesman said the deputy premier had no further appointments scheduled here except for a television conference* ate Sunday and an appearance at MIKOYAN (Continued on Page 2) i struck him with his fist before " •* ~""" "j'w«^ w» ^n-icu ni£ ; litA v\ouiu cost me samp taynnvpr i A . , • , " " : l •••F ••VVlTI sr-2 r±L- -°" ** ^r'i;:™£ « „-« os^r <» ^is-r^st*!" nllS To raise the new revenue, the Some called a sales tax the only Proposal Flood CoaUimcs »° Jayl'Shl savins tune anywhere, MB • ft Governor nrnmtspH Ihnt flm I o,,io I ^«eo!ki« .,«i.. 4 :_..
