He will smile and jerk his head In autocratic bows; he will wave his hat at the people and the $24.50 brown suit will Rap around his fat little legs. "He" will talk to. .wprkiher through an interpreter and he will play the comman mai among commen men. Tin no pundit. I don't knov what he's going to say. B; nature, Niklta Khrushchev Is e taker rather than a giver. ' However, as an average student .of history, I know that there is a Marxprinciplecalled World Revolution, and this means that the Soviet Union Is pledged to convert the world to Communism no matter how friendly the Russians feel at the moment. When Mr. Khrushchev said, in a moment of pique, that he would bury us, I think he meant ideologically. I don't think • he meant that ha would lift the spade and start digging. A dead and barrenUnitedStates would be a liability to a victorious Russia. My big concern about the visit Is the safety of the Soviet premier. Some of my work In books is built around assassination and I wince when I think of the task of the United States Secret Service. They have to protect the man whom millions of Americans regard as the greatest threat to their lives. At 4 p.m. on the afternoon that President Lincoln was shot, lie was walking with -Majoi Crook from- the White House t> the War Department and som drunken men almost bumpr Mr. Lincoln. The two began i •alk about assassination. "I have perfect confidence ' hose who are around me," tl 'resident said. "In every 01 )f you men. I know no o' could do it and escape alh But if it is to b« done, It Impossible to prevent it." That's a melancholy tru ". . .If ills' to be done, it impossible to prevent it."'

He agreed. The -Puerto Ricans who trleo to kill Mr. Truman in Blair House must have known tint escape was impossible. It is when your cause becomes more important than your life that you become dangerous to society. All I can do is to add my small voice to many others in hoping that our people will remember that Niklta Khrushchev Is our guest. To be hospl- -able, it isn't necessary to en: irace the invited.

By LYLE C. WILSON . United Press International WASHINGTON (UPI) - Politicians and political writers are talking about where Thomas E. Dewey fits into the 1960 Republican presidential jigsaw. Not that Dewey is candidate for office. The question is how far, if at all, Dewey has moved from support of Vice President Richard M. Nixon for the 1960 nomination to the support oi Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller. That Dewey ever was a supporter of pixpr for 1960 Is, of course, an assumption. *'lfi! a good assumption, however. The record wit 1 show that Dewey was for Nixon's 1956 renomi- nation when there was building within and on the ; fringes of the ReplAlican Party a. movement to bench him. . . . In October 1958, Dewey said Nixon would make a superb 1960 presidential nominee. That was before Rockefeller was elected governor of New York. Nixon's greatest political strength lies with his party's professionals, especially the'grass roots professionals. Dewey is a political pro. If Dewey has risen far above the grass roots level, that does not at all reduce his professional standing. : Dewey's natural political relationship seemed to be wholly with Nixon until Rockefeller exploded as a new and attractive political figure, Dewey's final choice between them could be important for an obvious reason. It is possible, even likely, that with Dewey's active support, Nixon .could ship away. from.. Rockefeller some of the delegates New /York will send to the 1960 convention. That would deprive Rockefeller not only of convention votes but of considerable political glimmer-glamor. Rockefeller's defenses against such a raid on his home grounds would be substantially improved if Dewey were working for the governor's nomination. A governor should be able to control his state's lelegatlon to his party's national convention. Some tolls have indicated that Rockefeller does not it this moment have that situation well in hand. Look magazine reported last April on nearly 2,000 Republican county leaders of more than • 3.000 polled. There were 1,374'.who .wanted-to nominate Nixon In 1960, Only,49ft.w«nted:fiocke^- feller. Rockefeller's heaviest support was hi southern states, whereas Nixon's was in such jackpot states as Pennsylvania, California, Michigan, Illinois and Ohio, ... ... Thirty of 62 New York county leaders-replied.., There were 15 for Rockefeller and 13 for Nixon, with considerable hedging in most replies. ' The returns, however, support the idea that Nixon has a chance to build a fire: against the Rockefeller candidacy inthegovemor'sbackyard. Dewey could help that along.

This means that district Judges, district torneys, county judges, etc., all of whom have jr-year terms, can't run for some state office i their "off year." They will have to resign first. This rule does not apply Wstate officials holding ur or six-year offices.

STUDY FOR SURV1VAI.--A new adult education program, aimed at the person who wants to live to a ripe old age regardless of what happens, -nil be launched in Texas this fall Texas Education Agency, in conjunction with everal other stateandfederalagencies, is setting o the civil defense study program. It will be fered initially through public schools and junior Ueges. TEA's team of civil defense consultants will •-gin by holding workshops in various Texas cities id towns to train teachers. Teachers in turn fill set up free classes for the public. A 12-hour course In six-two-hour sessions is >lanned. It will cover the potential perils from ooth natural and man-made disasters, and how to survive them. Texas is one of five pilot states which will pioneer this program this year. Next year 29 states will participate, DAMP HARVEST--Too much rain at the wrong time has caused Texas crop prospects in some areas to sag. U. S. Department of Agriculture has estimated the stale's 1959 cotton crop at 4,525,000 bales. This Is 225,000 bales less than was predicted earlier. Wet weather, causing insect damage and root rot, particularly in East Texas, was blamed. Quality, as well as quantity, of cotton has been hurt by the rains. In some pans of the state August was the wettest month this year. Rice, grain soghum and vegetables also have been damaged in the sections near the coast. HATCHET BURIED--A long and sometimes bitter controversy over Trinity River water apparently -as ended in compromise. Conflict had developed between the City of Houston and the Trinity River Authority, for which )allas and other upriver residents were spokes- nen. Each group wanted a permit from the itaie Board of Water Engineers to build a reser- •oir on the Trinity. Charges and counter-charges were exchanged 1th a strong undercurrent of regional rivalry. . shouting contest before the Water Board seemed evitable. Now TRA and Houston have agreed on a plan by Wch the reservoir would be built, owned and perated jointly by the two. Houston would pay TO er cent of the cost and fet 70 per cent of the uer. Plan cannot be final until approved by the Water lard. CWARE OF BATS--Leave bats alone, warns ihe ite Health Department in its September bulletin. Department officials have studied several cases i which rabies was apparently transmitted to eople by bats. Two of the cases Involved women vho were trying to help bats thai seemed tojai uirt. Death resulted in each instance. Bats serve a useful purpose, the bulletin poinu •xit, consuming as much as twice their weight ir. Insects each night. A healthy bat, it continues, won't come near people. And if people txerclit reasonable caution, says the article, there is little danger. » ; <V) — ,»«r , nM Parcel, Bert Parks, H». walliui dancers; repeat: coi.on Q| D e s 1 1 u PTAyhOUw- • Slarl of new seanon; "A.
