VET NEWS Khrushchev Has Used Us Surprising nobody, Khru- «<tev has the whole world hanging on every word bespeaks in the United States. Even the Voice of America, jammed against the Iron Curtain for 11 years, was uncorked Never'has such a propaganda platform been providedforany- body. tfe lias tied up our domestic TV networks to such an extent that It will be years before the truth ever gets "equal time to reply." Khrushchev has used us. He has some journalists and ev« some statesmen twittering over his "genius,' "his masterful poise," ."his keen brain." All of which merely says that he Is smarter than we are. That is a shameful admission, though ft probably is a fact. More accurately, history probably will show that our own -Gibraltar of patriotism bad become so eroded by the abrasive torrent of Red propaganda that he didn't have to be very smart to outsmart Khrushchev has a Red star » glide him And the Star, of Bethlehem which once guided us MS been obscured by a haze of factory smoke. . ... Russia Is climbing, feverishly. We've already scaled the heights, and It's windy on top. Now the sound of his voice trumpeted around the world from Washington. D. C M and New York City Is as the voice of a conqueror. '' "We will bury you P' he repeats In our own nation's capital Some of us don't think he will. Some of us believe that when Americans get scared enough and mad enough to get off their dead centers and get back to work, wewlHconthiuetoecllpse Soviet economic progress. We believe that men, yearning to be free, wUlgradually modify the Soviet slave state until incentive is restored and a man is a man again, and a woman a woman. We believe that once Russians begin to prosper, they too will be less inspiredio work, more inclined to laziness. Tbeirpro- gress will bog down when they too get fat and lazy. Communism has beta tried enourfi thne« tohlstory forusto know that«contafastneseedsof its own destruction. But what difference bow wrong the Soviet dictator's theories are tf be U allowed to expound them to Washington while the dictated press of the slave states report,' as Pravda did,, "SHOUTS ROLLED UP LIKE WAVES IN THE BIGGEST CELEBRATION SINCE V.E_ DAY," when actually there had been no snouts, no cheers along tin entire welcoming parade route. ' The Soviet press has conveyed to the Russian people the Impression that millions of Americans, thundering their applause of Khrushchev, would gladly surrendertocommunism right here and now. Khrushchev's dramatic proposal for a permanent baa on production of nuclear weapons is intended only for its propaganda effect. Agreement will be stymied later by subtle but relentless' Soviet objections. Meanwhile his offer has been heard 'round toe world as a magnanimous offer of peace. We have been used. .

All me makers have aot to do to sardine movie bouses Is placard them with streamers, "This is the picture that Khrushchev says is too immoral for the Russians."

The Communist line explanation la ready-: made by Khrushchev's adroit propaganda, creating, standards by which his American journey jtnay TlieVie. will be this: That the masters of the American people prevented Khrushchev .from getting through to common man; that these war mougering masters thus were able tovreject: peace; that this rejection was accompanied Jby. discourtesies dishonoring him and the Soviet Pe That is what Communists. American.and foreign, would, be told to believe, and they would believe it. Some other soft-headed Americans may believe it, too.
