Reds Turn Thumbs Down On West Plans fty IffccWV .SHAPIRO t'nHfid Frrnn tnffrmitlonnt MOSCOW fUPI) Soviet PH>- ftlier Niklta. S. Khrushchev turned down today the West's proposals On Berlin and nuclear teal suspension. Speaking at an election rally, Khrushchev flatly rejected last week's Western call for a Big 1 Four foreign ministers conference on Berlin and Germany. He said It would be "unbusinesslike" and "'unacceptable." he called anew for full and for- summit talks to decide the Herman question, nuclear test buns and the whole field of East- West dispute. The speech appeared to blast hopes of a new approach to the Oerman stalemate just when KHnishchJv's "little s u m m 11." talk? with Prime Minister Harold Macmillan of Britain harl created fresh hopes. Khrushchev scored the Western stand at the Geneva nuclear conference. "To accept the Western proposals (on inspection and control) would mert.n full ftsplluiatlonY' h* said.

Ha ftaid that ont:« thl* is conceded it Is only logical to "admit thei# right to decide their own destinies." The West does not recognize East Germany. Friendly fo Britain The Khrushchev speech, delivered during a one-day recess to his talks with Macmillan. contained a biting personal attack on the United States. He said Soviet police would not have to protect Macmillan to the *ame extent U.S. police had to protect First Deputy Premlef Anastas T. Mikoyan during his re- Cent visit to the United States. "We have no hooligans" lik« those who "tried to throw some ftggs at Comrade Mikoyan," he •aid. Khrushchev's words for Britain, though, were friendly. He proposed a lonf-term non-aggression treaty with the British, an idea one Jxmdon newspaper reported Macmillan himself wanted to discuss. The two men are known to have discussed the German stalemate at their meeting Monday.

T h « Demo Attack Brushed Off By Johnson By WILLIAM THKIS Unllpfl Pro** Infornntl'innl WASHINGTON rUPIi - - Senate Democratic Leader Lyndon B. Johnson brushed off a fpllow Democrat's atlack on his leadership tactics today with lhe studied silence of one who has the votes — .and knows it. friends said Johnson, now in Texas suffering a touch of flu, probably would ignore the Senate speech by Sen. William Proxmire (D-Wis.l. who charged lhat typical Democratic senators have "nothing to do" with setting their own party's program. I But there was no doubt that i Proxmire had touched a spot sensitive for many Democrats who have privately complained they have too little to say about Senate affairs. Unhappy Over Appointment* Proxmire conceded he was unhappy because two freshmen Democrats were given prized spots on the finance committee this year, even though he outranked them In seniority. But he naid this was "not principally" the matter which triggered his blast at Johnson. |j "I Just became convinced there was an uneasy feeling on the part fit many Democratic'senators that they were obligated to the leadership so much so that they were! .(isolated." he said. "1 decided that the only way to do anything about' it was to get up and talk about, it." j Tne Wisconsin senator said his next speech, dealing with the effect of senatorial "surrender" on the policy committee, will be made in about two weeks.
