Hands Full of China, Russ Toss Nothing at U.S. for Now By JAMES MARLOW Associated Press News Analyst WASHINGTON (AP) - About the only consolation for President Kennedy in these troubled days at home and abroad is that Soviet Premier Khrushchev has climbed down off his back for a while. Khrushchev's time is taken up with Red China, while Kennedy tries to cope with racial troubles in this country, with getting Senate approval of a limited nuclear test-ban treaty, and with restoring sense and order in South v*iet Nam. The Soviets have treated the United States almost amiably, compared with the past, ever since this country and Britain signed the test-ban agreement with the Soviet Union in Moscow Aug. 5. They have even been restrained about American racial disorders, although that's a subject made to measure for Communist propaganda. There can be any number of guesses about the reasons. The Russians don't want to give Senate opponents of the treaty extra ammunition before the Senate approves or the Russians want a new era of better relations with this country because of their disaster with the Chinese. The completely skeptical probably see in this Russian amiability and the test-ban agreement itself a cynical scheme to hypnotize the West into lowering its guard by giving it a false sense of peace and security. But without any of those reasons there is another explanation for the Soviets' recently muted tones toward the West: the Soviet Union has its hands full with its former Chinese ally. Since Aug. 5 the Soviet and Chinese attacks on each other— the Chinese denounced the test ban—have become as hysterical as Soviet-Chinese attacks on the West used to be. This Russian-Chinese split, which would be plenty excuse for the Soviet Union to switch its major attention from West to East, is perhaps the greatest break for the Western world since the war. The two giant Communist allies, working together, had the resources for endless mischief and perhaps unimagined gains in every corner and continent on earth. As rivals they may well cancel out their ambition to communize the world although it seems certain Red China will never stop, short of military defeat, trying to take over at least all of Asia. Nevertheless, improved Russian -Western relations have their own dangers for the Western Allies: the possibility that, feeling the Soviet menace has slackened, they will lose their sense of interdependence and also split up. French President Charles de Gaulle, consciously or not, may be reflecting exactly such a state of mind in his several acts of contrary and painful individualism since the beginning of this year. When the danger from the Soviet Union seemed greater than it does now, De Gaulle was far less intransigent and unpredictable. He began irritating this country sorely only after the United States forced Khrushchev to back down on his Cuba missiles. After that crisis subsided State Department people here began developing a kind of diplomatic euphoria with predictions that winds of change were sweeping the world although at that time last fall there wasn't a breeze blowing. They couldn't and didn't foresee that by January De Gaulle would have messed up the Common Market by refusing to let Britain in or that by August there would The Almanac By United Press International Today is Tuesday, Sept. 17, the 260th day of 1963 with 105 to follow. The moon is new. The morning star is Jupiter. The evening stars are Jupiter, Saturn and Mars. On this day in history: In 1737, the United States Constitution was completed at the constitutional convention and signed by a majority of the 55 delegates. In 1796, President George Washington delivered his farewell address and warned the American people to steer clear of foreign alliances. In 1862, Gen. Robert E. Lee's invasion of Maryland was defeated at the Battle of Antietam. In 1962, nine new U. S. Astronauts were named to train for moon flights. A thought for the day — Thomas A.

For their part the Russians, at this moment, can hardly know where they are or where they are going with the Red Chinese whose menace to the Soviet Union will increase, and not diminish, as their power and weaponry increase. Refreshes Memory Of Former Days Iti Kirkwood Area KIRKWOOD - Mrs. Howard Wilsky of Lutz, Fla., was driving around Kirkwood a few days ago trying to refresh her memory of people, the homes and other places of interest of over 50 years ago. Mrs. Wilsky, the former Elizabeth Campbell, was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W. D. Campbell. He was owner and editor of the Kirkwood Leader. She said her mother is living .in Tampa, Fla., in an apartment building owned by the Campbells. She is able to care for her apartment, but can no longer read, so spends much of her time thinking about Kirkwood. It was with the hope of adding something of interest to her mother's thinking that brought Mrs. Wilsky back after 52 years away from Kirkwood. She came around v/ith pictures she had taken away with her and they show the result of much use over the years. Kirkwood Church Circles to Convene KIRKWOOD — The following is a schedule of the circle meetings of the Westminster United Presbyterian Church, all of which will be held Thursday: Faith, at 2 p.m. at the home of Mrs. Glenn Burgess: Peace, at 2 p.m. in the home of Mrs. J.

Two- (Continued from page 10) returned to their usual business, mostly bickering on every issue presented. The regular appointment of Roy Baynes and Michael Romano to the hospital board was made by the mayor and refused by the council and so the interim appointments were made again. Mayor Walters dist r i b u t e d copies of new committee assignments necessitated by the presence of the new councilman, Chuck Bennett. Alderman Glenn Anderson objected to the shuffling of committee assignments and questioned the mayor's authority to make the changes. Anderson asked for a legal opinion from David Shanks, city attorney. Shanks appeared later in the evening and fielded the question cleanly by asking for more time to investigate the question. Anderson then presented a request from the police committee to purchase winter uniforms, radar equipment, tear gas equipment and filing cabinets and a new typewriter for the police department. Walters spoke against the purchase and carried on a running verbal battle with Anderson and Alderman George Thor- beck. After several minutes of discussion and despite the mayor's threat of a veto the matter to purchase the equipment was passed by the council. Alderman Virgil Shaub introduced a motion to annex the Gerald subdivision into the city and grant Gerald permission to sell lots with a 57-foot frontage, which received approval from the council after Alderman James Melvin added an amendment requiring homes built on the lots to be hooked up to the city's sewer system. Anderson gave a second reading of his amendment to the wheel tax ordinance reducing the fee for motorcycles, motorbikes and motor scooters from $5 to $2. This also received the council's approval. Adopt Control Rules The pattern evident in recent sessions, as to Mayor Walters and his own party members, appeared again at last night's meeting when three ordinances aimed specifically at the mayor were presented. One ordinance setting up an expense account committee to govern spending by elected officials was passed by the council. Another to set up procedures for alloting vacations to city em­ ployes was held over for a second reading. An ordinance was passed establishing council approval for purchasing and paying of bills. 0U& ANCESTORS feyQuincy Quince^ "Okay—I got that—now how much do we tip the dining room and the deck stewards?" Study Revision of U. S. Cropland Conversion Plan WASHINGTON (UPI) — Administration farm officials are studying a possible compromise plan this week in a dispute over the government's cropland conversion program. The administration has asked Congress to expand the program substantially next year. But farm leaders in both the House and Senate have been reluctant to approve the proposal in its original form. Last, week, a Senate agriculture subcommittee told the Agriculture Department to review its plan again and come up with some alternate proposals. Department officials indicated they hoped to come up with a recommendation by the end of this week. Under the cropland conversion program farmers are offered long-term contracts for converting cropland to other uses, mostly to pastures, but also in some cases to woodlots or recreation areas. In 1963, the Agriculture Depart­ ment has signed contracts for conversion of about 140,000 acres. The department wanted authority to contract for more than 10 million additional acres by the end of 19fi4. Spokesmen for livestock groups and the Farm Bureau Federation oppose the expansion as long as grazing is permitted on the converted acreage—and permission to graze the land is the key feature of the new program. There has been no decision yet as to what kind of compromise—if any—the administration will accept. One possible proposal would give farmers a choice of using converted acreage for grazing, or allowing it to lie idle. Government payment rates for retiring the acreage would be set on a dual scale—a comparatively low payment if the land is grazed, a higher payment if it's left completely idle. (19) Outlining the Text By The Reading Laboratory, Inc. Written for Newspaper Enterprise Association TO get the most out of the following, you'll have to get rid of preconceived notions about outlining. You probably remember outlining as a rather dull section of Freshman Composition. Before you wrote themes, you had to make outlines of them. When you wrote, you followed the outline. ' We'll call this type of outline a writing outline. The outlines we're going to talk about are fundamentally different from the outlines you use for writing. We're talking about outlines you use for reading. They are analytical tools — scalpels for dissecting the thought-structure of a textbook. In a reading outline, the ideas must be arranged according to their logical order. The most important idea in the text appears as the first point in the outline- no matter where it appears in the text. The following is the recommended way to construct an outline. 1.1 1.2 2. 2.1 2.11 2.12 This type of outline labels the ideas. Anything marked "1.1" must be directly related to the main idea, or "1." In the same way, anything marked "1.11" is directly subordinate to "1.1." The items don't have to be paired off in a reading outline. In writing outlines it's good form to pair off each item — if you have an item "a," you should also have an item "b." But in the sample outline above, "2.1" can stand without any "2.2" If you find only one subordinate idea under "2," there's no reason to invent another. Notice that any entries into "1." and "2." must be of equal importance. The entries in "2.11," "2.12," etc., must also be of equal importance. As an example of a reading outline, we could outline today's article as follows: 1. Reading outlines are analytical tools. 1.1 They organize ideas according to logical order — not according to order of presentation. 1.11 Different from writing out- outlines. 1.111 Ideas are labeled. 1.112 Ideas don't have to be paired off.
