Hightower, Associated Pres3 Pulitzer Prize-winning diplomatic reporter, compares the Moscow he saw In 1947 to the Moscow of 1963 after a recent visit. -o- -o- -o- By JOHN M. HIGHTOWER LONDON (AP)—In Moscow, thousands of people gather around Red Square early in the morning. All day long under the hot summer sun they form long lines to tramp solemnly through Lenin's air-conditioned tomb and to gape at the yellow- walled palaces and golden-domed churches of the Kremlin. They come from all over the Soviet Union and from foreign countries by plane, train and bus. One official told me 50,000 persons from the United States alone might visit Russia this year. The place they seek out first is the wine red marble mausoleum where the waxen remains of the Soviet Union's first ruler are reverently displayed. The Lenin tomb has been a Communist shrine for a generation and exerts a mystical attraction for Russians.

Offer good on any car in town! it3 massive crenelated walls, lies the Kremlin, the ancient and the modern center of Mus covite power. The astonishing thing to one who was last in Russia in Stalin's day is that the gates of the Kremlin stand open to visitors. These open gates form one of the symbols of the change that has come over Moscow since 1947 and still is going on. There are others. Automobiles and trucks speed along the main streets in noisy clusters. Store windows are full of goods though variety is small and the price usually high. Hair dressing shops for women seem to be a feature of every shopping district. Television aerials sprout from the roofs of many apartment buildings. Dozens of new build ings are going up on the out' spirts of the city. This reporter was previously in Moscow in early 1947 to cover a conference of foreign ministers. The sense of oppres sion emanating from the Kremlin lay heavily over the city then. Times were hard so soon after the war, and food, clothing, and housing were scarce. The streets were rough and many were full of holes. Few cars were to be seen. There were not enough buses. The subway was Moscow's proudest boast. The sides of beef and legs of lamb hanging in shop windows were wax models. But the real reason for the lined faces and furtive glances of the men and women in the streets was fear of Stalin's sec ret police. That terror is gone Tourists are welcome in Mos cow now and they can see much more than the Kremlin. But the Soviet capital is still a long way from becoming the Paris of the East. There is much red tape. The official travel agency, Intourist collects payment in advance for the room you will occupy and the meals you will eat. Americans are booked in for "deluxe" service at $35 a day for one person and $50 for two. The cost also covers a sightseeing plan for which a car and interpreter are furnished three hours each day. The visitor is assigned a hotel, sight unseen. Service in the restaurants is slow and ranges from poor to rude. During our 10 days in Moscow, my wife and I lived in a friendly downtown hotel assign ed by Intourist. It offered ah excellent view of a construction project across the street, where an addition to a children's department store was being completed. Women and men worked side by side at hard labor. Moscow is humming with con struction and repair work of all kind. Even many church build ings are being repaired. The churches usually are converted into museums by the militantly atheistic government. A few are open for worship. All food stores appeared to carry the same lines of merchandise at the same prices, usually high. The same is true of clothing and other shops. Some things are cheap by Western standards. A family has to pay only a few rubles a month for an apartment. A woman can get her hair done for less than a ruble and hairdressing salons are numerous. Books are inexpensive and book stores appear to be more numerous than any others. The strongest impression we brought away from our 10-day visit in Moscow is that of a city on the move, caught up in a turbulent uneven growth. In some ways it is like a huge, dusty, overcrowded peasant village turning into a metropolis overnight. It is the nature of this rapid change that you can see modern water trucks wash ing the streets while wrinkled old women in worn blue coats sweep the sidewalks with primitive brooms made of birch twigs.

The hand was constructed by Jose Le Dentu, a French writer as a problem in play. Of course, if West opens a spade there is no problem in play, but West opens the six of trumps.

If East holds the king of clubs you can make 12 tricks easily, so the normal play is to lead dunv my's ace of clubs and continue with the queen. Unfortunately for your purposes East plays low. You discard and West wins the trick with the Icing. Now if he leads a spade you go down two but you have worked out a neat bit of camouflage. Your discard on the queen of clubs was the nine of diamonds. West is pretty sure that his partner holds an ace. It now appears that it is the ace of diamonds so he leads a diamond whereupon you take the rest of the tricks because you can discard two spades on clubs and one spade on the king of dia monds.

DRAMA FOR CITY DIVISIONS Paint With Jim Martin's Paints and CLEVELAND (AP) - Dramatic decals are used on many of the city's vehicles to illustrate their assignment. Cleveland uses St. George slaying a dragon for the sewage disposal division, the Norse god Thor for the light and power branch, and a "big hand" for the water department, for example. Law director Bronis J. Klemen- towicz ruled recently that such vehicles do not also have to be lettered with the city's name, ve^ marking: "We don't want to make the city cars look like billboards." Mississippi Democratic primary even though his name isn't on the ballot for the election Tuesday. What one candidate calls a "cuss the Kennedy' campaign has overshadowed traditional slate issues in the heated campaign to pick the probable successor of 65- year-old Gov. Ross Barnett. Barnett, who attracted worldwide prominence last fall by defying the federal government in the court-ordered admission of James H. Meredith, a Negro, to the University of Mississippi, can not succeed himself. Traditionally, the incumbent governor takes no part in the campaign to choose his successor. Barnett has held to this line, say ing he was too busy with affairs of state. The four Democratic candidates are: —J.P. (for James Plennon) Cole-! man, 49, of Ackerman, governor in 1955-60. A lawyer, he has been in the state house of representatives for the past four years. —Paul B. Johnson, 47, of Hattiesburg, the lieutenant governor. A World War II Marine captain and son of a former governor, Johnson—like Barnett—faces federal criminal contempt proceedings stemming from the Meredith case. —Robert Mason, 60, of Magee, a welder who earned the nickname "blowtorch" for his color ful stump speeches during the 1959 He finished last in a four-man field with about 20,000 votes. —Charles Sullivan, 38, of Clarksdale, the third major candidate. Sullivan, a prematurely gray-haired ex-district attorney, finished a surprisingly strong third in the 1959 gubernatorial campaign. He is a state rights advocate who says he will bolt the Democratic party rather than vole for Kennedy. Although Democratic victory has virtually assured election for nearly a century, Republicans are mounting their first serious bid for the state house in decades. Onetime Democrat Rubel Phillips, 38, is stumping the state as the GOP standard-<bearer for the general election. Republicans hope to capitalize on dissatisfaction with the Kennedy administration and the national Democratic party. None of the three major candidates is expected to win a clear- cut majority, which means the top two would go into an Aug. 27 runoff.
