You can dry your clothes for just about a penny a load with a Gas Clothes Dryer. This is only about one-fourth as much as it costs to operate other kinds of dryers.

TJicre was speculation to this effect Saturday among Western diplomats here, as a consequence of Khrushchev's series of visits to the Bast European satellites. Khrushchev is at present in Romania. ;v Last month he was in Bulgaria. He is scheduled to visit Czechoslovakia, and Hungary later this yeai. Officially his visits have been described as friendship trips. As things are now,, 'Czechoslovaks, Hungarians, Romanians, Poles and Bulgarians enjoy ,a highec-standard of storing than the average Soviet citizen.

While Soviet clothing is shoddy, monotonous and expensive, Czechs'and Pdles are dressing in Western style and are as well shod as the average Frenchman or German. There have been no official disclosures of the nature of Khrushchev's talks here. Diplomats here said it may be that Khrushchev expects the Easi European satellites to spreac around he wealth. Romania, for example, may b'e asked to send^more of its agricultural products and <meat to the Soviet Union. At the moment large quanities of Romanian food are being sol< in Western Europe in exchange for modern machinery, wth which Gheorghiu-Dej is trying to builc up heavy industry and improve the living standards of his own people.. If Romania continues sell ing to the West and also has to ship more to Russia, this means the Romanian people may have less to eat this year than in 1960 and 1961. Khrushchev may be making sim ilar demands on Czechoslovaakia Hungary, Poland and Bulgaria, Western diplomats say they be lieve there was some discussion along these lines at a recent meet ing of East Bloc economic chief in Moscow and that Khrushchev' personal visits to satellites, were designed to soften the blow.
