(International) Top Russ Scientist Raps Antiquated Equipment By HENRY SHAPIRO United Press Staff Correspondent • MOSCOW (UP) — Russia's chief scientist today criticized antiquated equipment in appealing to the Soviet parliament for increased research and development appropriations. Alexander Nesmeyanov, president of the U.S.S.R. Academy of Science, said Russia now has 240,COO scientists and is graduating another 250,000 technicians and specialists annually. Nesmeyanov, whose scientists built the Soviet earth satellites and the intercontinental ballistics missile, warned that it "would be most harmful to overestimate our scientific achievements." equipment, useless expenditure and duplication of work. The tall, distinguished scientist said the total 1958 science outlay will be 18,200,000,000 rubles ($4,550,000,000) at the official but unrealistic rate of exchange)—a 10 per cent increase over this year's outlay. But he said still more is needed. Meanwhile discussion of the 1958 plan continued in both houses of the Supreme Soviet, which are meeting separately to hear reports on the nation's industrial, agricultural and scientific progress this year and plans for next year. The Council of the Union and the Council of Nationalities are ex, pected to approve the programs "Great efforts still are needed I unanimously.

'. Connie, a singer of popular eongs, caught Batista's eye while warbling on a TV show in Havana. ' '. The President dispatched his family physician and lawyer to Connie's hotel to inyite her to the palace. The invitation had all the aspects of an old-fashioned melodrama. '. But womanlike, Connie's only thoughts were about what she would wear. • "I. settled for a long - sleeved black dress with a modest neckline," she said demurely. "I was thrilled to death, but I was apprehensive, too. A girl hears all sorts of things about dictators. ; "A chauffeured limousine brought me to the palace which wasn't very impressive from the outside. I was met by a guard at the entrance. They're careful down there about strangers because of the revolution." Still not knowing what to ex- jpect, Connie (a native of Whitefish, Flathead County, Montana) was conducted to an elevator and deposited on the second floor of the Cuban white house. Instead of candlelight and wine, the blonde charmer was greeted by cabinet members who chatted with her about the weather and other mundane subjects, "Then a man in uniform told us we would be received by the President," she continued. "We entered an intimate library which is the President's study. As we came in he made his entrance from another door. It was electrifying. An Exciting Man "There's an urgency and excitement about the man. The same excitement you feel at the i start of a horse race. 'He was very impressive in his uniform and he spoke English beautiful- ily." . Connie's eyes sparkled as she related Batista's story of how the palace elevator saved his life last winter when a mob of rebels invaded the building. "The elevator stuck on the fifth Farm Price Aid Plans ' Discussed WASHINGTON (IIP)—Four agricultural specialists told Congress recently it might well consider a program o! direct cash payments to farmers as a means of supporting farm prices. A fifth came out flatly against it. Direct payments—making up in cash the difference between a price farmers receive for a crop and a "fair" price—were a feature of the hotly criticized Brannan plan. Direct payments currently! are made only on sugar and wool. The testimony was given at hearings on farm problems by the Joint Economic Committee's farm agriculture subcommittee. W.E. Hamilton, director of research for the American Farm Bureau Federation, denounced thi; direct payment plan as a "simple cure-all" that really is a "delusion." He said the "economic consequences" of cash subsidies' are more serious fhan proponents indicate and would create more problems than they solve. But John D. Black, Harvard University professor, said direct payments on a commodity-by- commodity basis "should have an important place in a complete farm program." Oren Sotli, editorial staff writer of the Des Moines Register and Tribune, said present loan and purchase methods are "impractical" for perishable livestock products and fruits and vegetables. He said a "compensatory payment" might "minimize the ups and downs in production." Gordon K. Zimmerman, director of research of the National Grange emphasized the need for a commodity-by-commodity approach in farm planning. Direct payments, he said, could be used as wtill as other methods "witliin this .selective approach." George K. Brinegar, professor of agricultural economics at the University of Connecticut, said a direct payment plan "is a more powerful and flexible tool. . .than is the price support technique." Two Pittsburgh Companies Merge MIDDLETOWN, Ohio CUP) — The Armco Steel Co. and the National Supply C». of Pittsburgh merged today. National Supply is one of the country's major producers of oil field supplies. Its annual gross business is about 250 million dollars. The directors of both companies have agreed to the merger.

"I realize there is a lot of controversy about Batista, but I was interested in him as a man, not a politician," Connie says. "Before I left he told me that when I return to Cuba in six months for a singing engagement he would hold a command performance for me." Melodrama? "Mrs. Batista was there too," Connie said.
