MARLOW WANTS TO KNOW Why Did Mikoyan Visit Us? By JAMES Associated Press News Analyst WASHINGTON (AP) _ Anastas •1. Mikoyan, home-bound today, left a trail of questions behind him. They can be boiled down to two: why did he come? What was the result of his visit? A modern form of self-torture is to try to read the Kremlin's mind. Many interpretations have been "put on the Soviet deputy premier's visit here. But the reason for his trip may be this simple: He just wanted to look around and, as a byproduct, create a little good will for the Soviet Union. Didn't Budge So far as is known he didn't budge an inch on anything and neither did the Eisenhower administration. It's traditional, in thinking of relations between nations, to regard everything one of them does as a profound, stiff, stuffy and highly meaningful move or counter-move in high diplomacy. It might sometimes be. more realistic, in the case of the Soviets, to think of some of their actions in simpler terms. They've broken a lot of diplomatic rules since Nikita Khrushchev became boss and Mikoyan his right-hand man. For example: All the letter writing to President Eisenhower, last year on a summit conference. Dropped Whole Idea Khrushchev dropped the whole idea when it suited him. He had made some good propaganda at home with it, and perhaps a little headway with other people. The Soviets have done the same thing other times, in other ways. They've twisted, turned, dodged, ducked, proposed, and reversed No "narrow-gauge" car smooths the bumps like PONTIAC! Tht wheeli are moved out 5 inchei for the widest, steadiest stance In America. S.-1 Road-test the only car with Wide-Track Wheels themselves ns it suited them. Why these tactics? One explanation could be that they look on us with contempt, think we're slow and pompous, figure they can jab nnd poke and dance around us, like kids in a cartoon calling a rich, fat man names and knocking his high silk hat off. Don't Want {Shooting Since neither side wants a shooting war — it costs the Soviet Union nothing to try all sorts of unorthodox things. If it gains a lit' tie, good, so long as, if it loses, it doesn't lose much. The Kremlin didn't figure to lose by sending Mikoyan here. He is well able to take care of himself. By his visit the Soviet might gain a little goodwill, although that could well be a secondary consideration so long as he got a look around, met some people, and did some talking intended to be beneficial to the Soviet Union. It shouldn't have been surpris ing that he neither revealed nor proposed anything new. It would have been surprising If he had. The Soviets are hard bargainers. For Mikoyan to come here nnd make concessions, without getting plenty in return, wouldn't have been bargaining. The fact that he offered nothing new during his trip is pretty good evidence he came for the ride. His visit looks like just one of the impromptu, free-wheeling moves the Soviets have used since Khrushchev came to power. 4 Men Held After Stabbing in Duluth Hotel RECOVERY FROM OPERATION Girls-for-Hire Big Business for Companies NEW YORK (AP)-Viewpoints expressed on a radio program indicate that sex has become big business in the world of big busi-| William A.

Unidentified speakers on the program, "The Business of Sex," said that the use of call girls fo help swing big deals for large corporations has become so widespread Hint some companies pay prostitutes by the month and others keep them on regular payrolls as part of public relations staffs. The program, "recommended for adult listening only," Was broadcast on the CBS network! Monday night and narrated by Edward R. Murrow. Girls described as prostitutes j said anonymously they made as' much as $25,000 a year through' their deals with companies and did not pay income taxes. | One girl said that girls-for-birc•' actually get verbal agreements on deals for companies. An unidentified corporation executive explained another aspect of company-financed prostitution. Spent The Nighl ."The point is that I know that the buyer has spent the night with a prostitute that I have provided ... in most cases the buyers are married, with families, 1 ' he said. "It sort of gives me a slight edge; well, we will not call it exactly blackmail . , .it is a good weapon to have." Estimates of the number of prostitutes operating here ranged from 3,000 to 30,000.
