(UPl Telephofo) Khrushchev opens his drive against China BUDAPEST, Hungary (UPI)Soviet Premier Nikita Khrush chev opened his campaign against Communist China today by bitterly accusing Peking of trying to wreck the socialist movement Khrushchev delivered an address to a glittermg audience of lop government leaders at the Opera House. A published supplement to his speech released by the official Hungarian news agency MTI contained the remarks about Weather Redlands Weather Today Highest 67, Lowest 38 One Year Ago Highest T7, Lowest 40 Tomorrow's Sunrise and Sunset 5:33 a.m.— 6:12 p.m. No smog, allowable burning Saturday, Sunday, Monday San Bernardino Valley: Some variable cloudiness but considerable sunshine today and most ly sunny Saturday.

China, which were not read at the opera. In the supplement, Khrushchev said: "What can we say when confronted with such absurd aspirations. Only one thing. Those desperate efforts of the Chinese leaders, with which they hope to gain command of the Communist movement, are doomed to failure. "In recent years, tlie llar.xist- Leninist parties have strengthened and developed tremcn dously and nobody has been able to turn them -from the only correct path of Leiiinism." The Soviet leader said, however, that the success of the in- tcriiational Communist movement depended on its unity. "This is particularly important when the leaders of the Chinese Communist party come out openly with their stand aimed at disruption," he said. He accused Chinese leaders of carying their ideological differences of opinion with the Soviet Union into the area of international relations. "They stepped out a course aimed at the slackening of the unity of the socialist countries and through this caused damage to the international socialist system." Khrushchev's speech came a few hours after the Soviet party newspaper called for a Communist summit meeting to discuss the Sino-Soviet dispute. It also followed a Hungarian party statement today which pledged all-out support for Khrushchev in a showdown with China. The two statements broke a months-long silence by the Soviet Union and' its allies on the China question. They marked the opening of a counter-offen sive which could determine whether Khrushchev retains leadership of the Communist world. Earlier, Khrushchev laid wreaths to fallen heroes on two significant Budapest memorials. He was accompanied by Hungarian Premier Janos Kadar, who earlier released the Hungarian Communist Party Central Committee's bitter pro tests against the Chinese at tacks on Khrushchev's policies and person.

The Voice Of America (VOA) said jamming of its broadcasts in the Czech and Slovak languages, which had gone on since 1948. ended shortly before midnight Tuesday. • Czechoslovakia is the fifth Communist country to stop jamming U.S. broadcasts. Poland stopped in 1956, Russia stopped last June, Romania last July and Hungary last February. In all cases U.S. broadcasts in all local languages of the countries involved had been jammed, but the Communists had never bothered to jam English language broadcasts. -The VOA said the only two countries in eastern Europe which still jam American broadcasts are Bulgaria and East Germany. Yugoslavia and Albania never jammed the U.S. broadcasts. Officials said the Cubans are still operating moderate jamming, and Bed China makes sporadic and haphazard attempts at it Prize dishes broken Col. Gell writes of losses in Alaska quake Word from Col. T. W. (Wes) Gell, formerly of Redlands, and now Wing commander and base commander at Elmendorf AFB, seven miles from Anchorage, Alaska, is that he and his family came through the earthquake in fine shape. 'But if you dropped in for a cup of coffee right now, we would have to share the same cup — that's about all we have left," he writes in a letter to Col. and Mrs. Frank Thorn- quest 1420 Elizabeth Crest drive. 'For a few terrifying minutes on Friday night we really caught hell. But thank God that the -Air Force can get organized when it has to, and things are looking up now, with no one wanting for anything. I can't say the same about the City of] Anchorage. The damage there was terrible." Jlrs. Gell (Jean) and their daughter Wendy are with him at Elmendori. Their daughter Pam is in college in Oregon. Col. Gell writes that during the quake he, Mrs. Gell and Wendy "were bouncing from wall to wall trjing to evacuate our quarters. "Our car was bobbing around Uke a small skiff in a heavy sea. Dishes, lamps, radios, were floating all over the house- Telephone poles and trees describing a 60 degree arc. Waves running through the floors, streets and yards. "Never have you seen a kitchen floor covered with broken bottles of milk,-salad oil, ketchup and. . . you name it nearly ankle-deep, liberally sprinkled with broken dishes ... and a dining room with all your good dishes, crystal that you have babied all over the world, Hummels (German figurines) broken all over the place. When we surveyed the mess we looked at each other and were as happy as little kids that we were healthy. Jean and Wen- day cleaned up without a word. I had other things to do on thei Base as you can well imagine. "Tell our good friends ia Bed-| lands that we are well and have 'no problems." Rusk saysRuss troubles delay U.S. settlement WASHINGTON (UPI)-Secre- fary of State Dean Rusk said today Russia's top priority con com over the split with Red China is probably a factor in delaying progress on Soviet- American problems. Rusk told a news conference that except for some progress toward working out a consular, agreement between Washington and Moscow, there has been no "great movement" toward settling the multitude of perilous issues which divide the world's two major powers. Part of this stalemate, the secretary said, probably is due to Soviet "preoccupation" with the increasingly bitter feud be tween the militant Chinese Reds and Soviet Premier Niki ta Khrushchev over the latter policy of peaceful co-e.xistence, Rusk said he thought the Kremlin, as well as the Bus sian people in general, are deeply concerned by the prospects of having a militant neighbor "next door." Red Chi na, by 1970 will have a popula (ion of 800 million people and might be armed with nuclear weapons by then. Rusk said the latest and bitterest Chinese attacks calling for the removal of Khrushchev as leader of world communism and the new Russian counter charge today were being fol lowed by the United States with considerable interest RIO DE JANEIRO. Brazil (UPD—Leaders of Brazil's triumphant three-day revolt which ousted President Joao Goulart started a purge of leftists in and out of government today. They also sought to determine the whereabouts of the former president Goulart was last reported to have fled Porto Alegre in Rio Grande Do Sul SUte Thursday afternoon. At that time he was believed headed for Uruguay] and political asylum but more than 200 newsmen and diplomats waited for him in Montevideo in vain. Today, a personal friend of the ex-president, Joao Alonso Montegui, said he was "sure" Goulart was at his 1,000-acre Sao Borja ranch on the banks of the River Uruguay and close to that country's border. Mon­ tegui said Goulart had once told him he would never flee Brazil unless his life was in danger. The anti-Communist generals who toppled Goulart however, were expected to use the threat of arest against him to force him out of the country and mto exile aboard. Authorities were on the lookout for extreme leftist leader Francisco Juliao, whose land grabbing "peasant leagues' have been active in northeast- em Brazil. Juliao was last reported in Brasilia, but is be- Ueved to have left that city and is not known to have returned to his usual haunts in Pemam- buco State. Two other prominent Pemam- buco leftists. Gov. Muguel Arraes and Mayor Pelopidas Silveira of Recife, the state capi­ tal, were deposed during the revolution. Areas and about 50 other leftist prisoners were flown Thursday to Fernando Noronha Island, 300 niiles off the coast, but it was not certain whether Silveira was among them. One of the victorious generals, Maj. Gen. Amaury KnieL whose 2nd Army played a ma jor role in the revolt, was among the favorites to succeed provisional President Ranieri Mazzilli in elections promised withm the month. WASHINGTON (UPI)-Secretary of SUte Dean Busk today indicated U.S. readiness to give increased aid to the new Brazilian government to help it with economic and social development Rusk told a news conference he believes Brazil's military leaders, state governors and congress had warded off a threat to the country's constitutional system by ousting President Joao Goulart- Rusk said there was concern that the leftist Goulart was leading Brazil toward some authoritarian form of government before his overthrow. Rusk echoed and expanded on President Johnson's expressions of hope for strengthening relations and improving cooperation between the two countries in the wake of the overthrow of 'the (loulart regime. Rusk told newsmen he did not think.the ouster of Goulart was a precedent for other military coups m Latin America which would not keep democratic constitutions in force, ai he said Brazil did. U.S., Panama agree on formula for negotiating WASHINGTON (UPI)— The United States and Panama have reached agreement on a formula for resuming diplomatic relations and discussing a settlement of their dispute over the Panama Canal, authoritative sources said today. An announcement from the White House, Panama City and the Organization of American States is expected within a matter of a few hours, the sources said. The reported formula was said to have been worked out m a series of talks over the past two weeks between the U.S. and Panamanian ambassadors to Uie OAS, Ellsworth Bunker and Miguel J. Moreno. , The OAS council's special committee on the Panama dispute was summoned hurriedly to a 2 p.m. EST meeting. It was understood the agreement would be explained at that time. Previous OAS formulas blew up because of disagreement between the White House and Panama over coordinating "in- terpretatons." Earlier Secretary of State Dean Rusk said Russia's top priority concern over the split with Red China is probably factor in delaying progress on Soviet-American problems. Small private donations pour into Alaska ANCHORAGE, -Alaska (UPI) —A wave of small private do nations from people throughout the world poured into quake- shattered Alaska today, the van guard of massive state and fed eral aid to rebuUd Uie 49th state.
