MILKS PRAGUE, Czechoslovakia (fll— Nikita Khrushchev Thursday night proposed a marriage of convenience between the Communist and capitalist worlds to avert war. He also claimed Yugoslavia as a loyal member of the Socialist (Communist) camp. The stocky Soviet Communist party chief put forward his suggestion of marriage without love in the glittering ballrooms of' Prague's 14th century Hradcany (pronounced Rud-churiny) castle, once the home of Bohemians kings. Turning to the envoys of capitalist countries attending the reception given by Czech President Antonin Zapotocky for the Kremlin leaders, Khrushchev said capitalists do not like the Commu- , nist system "but I like it." "But there are many cases," Khrushchev continued, "of people not in love getting married. They getfalong very well without love but with understanding. "Let's try it. Let us compete arid see who is better, but let us I do it peacefully." Still aiming his words at the Western diplomats among the more than 1,000 guests, Khrushchev said: "I know you don't like our system but we were not born with church bells ringing but with the sound of gunshots. Let us stop considering each other as • enenv ies and try and get on. I believe there is no other way." Khrushchev boasted that Soviet relations with this Communist nation are so good they cannot be imprdved upon. --• f - "But we want improved relations with other countries — with the United States," he said. "The United States is a strong and big • country, We also think that we are not a small, weak country. I think we can be considered equals," He'said the Soviet Union wanted an end to the arms race because "with modern aevelopments of arms this race could become catastrophic." "Either we fight for peace or we have war," he said. . "We must mobilize all our efforts and all nations for peace." Later he appealed for complete unity of all Communist countries, saying: "1 know. Y u g o s I a v va doesn't like the word camp. They prefer something like community. But Yugoslavia is a Socialist state. Are there two socialisms or one? That question has been raised on several occasions. "We want to strengthen rthe Socialist camp, not in any aggressive way but to defend peace. We came here for that reason, ACCUSES THE WES'f'dF REVOLUTIONARY TACTICS . . . Soviet Communist Party boss Nikita S. Krushchev waves to crowds as he rides through Prague., With him, at extreme right, is Czech President, Antonin Zapotocky.

Administration officials beamed over the court's 8-0 verdict in favor of their pledge to Japan to allow Japanese trial of Army Specialist 3.C. William S. Gir^trd for the shooting of a Japanese woman. The Japanese too voiced pleasure over the ruling. And Japanese Dist.

Johnson (Tex). Earlier Johnson told newsmen he hoped agreement could be reached by all sides for a vote either late Tuesday or early Wednesday. Johnson evidently expects the Senate to vote by about 2-1 in favor of the motion by Knowland to call up the bill. "We're hot trying to delay or procrastinate in this situation," he said. Russell told reporters "there is no possibility of a vote on Sen. Knowland's' motion before Tuesday." He added, "I'd prefer to delay it. until Wednesday, or even Thursday." Knowland had said before a breakfast meeting at. the White House with President Eisenhower that he favored a vote early in the week—by either Monday or Tuesday.

' ' Diplomatic officials carefully following Nasser's actions won't vouch for the accuracy of* either forecast. Some said Nasser just would not dare to flout world public opinion by any such drastic move. But these officials said there is every sign the Egyptian leader, in a move to recoup his battered prestige in the Arab world, hopes invasion." Within a few hours, simulated nuclear attacks will have "blasted" more than half these industrial centers and defense installations out of existence with tens of millions of hypotehtical casualties.

The plane is an old Lockheed- Vega of about the year 1931, similar to the "Winnie Mae" which was made famous by the late Wiley Post. It is of wood construction and was chosen by the General Electric Company for ' electric studies because of the small amount of metal in the fuselage. It was formerly used for aerial photography and was badly damaged in a crash in Te^cas. Mr. Hagberg was called to Dallas, Tex., this week to make a bid on repairs and was chosen to do the job. The fuselage will have to be reassembled and repaired extensively.

Although the burial plans had not been announced, Egyptian architect Kamal Mallakh said in Cairo the Aga Khan some time ago had asked him to design a red granite tomb on the skyline of the desert hills on the west bank of the • Nile across from Aswan, Egypt. Aswan is a major center oft the Ismaili sect. Mallakh, who discovered Che­ ops' solar boat in 1954, said no actual work on the construction of the. tomb had been done because the Begum wrote him in February; 1956. "that they were in no hurry to pursue the project." He said according to original plans of the, Begum ' and Aga Khan, the tomb Would cover some 200 square yards. He said the plans included an. entrance corridor, a circular aiea beneath a central dome and An Eisenhower-opposed resolution by Rep.

The House Rules Committee Thursday cleared the $3,242,333,000 aid bill for House consideration starting Monday but left the Bow resolution in the deep freeze. Bow promptly started studying the aid measure to see where he might offer his resolution as an amendment., Rep. Leo Allen < III >. the senior Rules Committee Republican, said the House "without any question" would tack Bow's amendment onto the aid bill if it comes to a recorded roll call vote. If the aid bill passes Congress in that form, Eisenhower would be faced with the choice of vetoing aid legislation which he says is vital to free world security or signing it with the Bow amendment in it. And the Bow resolution, say defense chiefs, could col "There are going to be no amendments agreed to," nor any negotiations or agreements looking toward amendments "until after the bill becomes the pending business in the Senate," Knowland said.

Nasser is reported attaching great importance to his address on that day because it coincides with the 5th anniversary of the ouster 6f King Farouk and the opening of the N new pro-Nasser parliament.

President Signs Housing Bill Lowering Payments WASHINGTON l /B. - President Eisenhower Friday signed a housing bill authorizing lower down payments on FHA-insured homes and making an additional $1,990,000,000 available for various housing programs. In approving the measure, however, Eisenhower said that "unfortunately it contains a number of very serious defects." He called for repeal of some provisions at the next session of Congress. Noting that the sum made available for housing programs is "more than double the amounts requested for these programs," Eisenhower said: "Accordingly. 1 have given instructions to limit the use of the new authority provided by this act during the fiscal year 1958 (which started July 1) to amounts consistent with the over-all budget «j program." Eisenhower's January budget proposal called for only $1,025,000,000. The bill's provision for lower down payments on housing carrying FHA-guaranteed mortgages is only permissive, and there was no indication In the presidential statement that Eisenhower was taking 'any action to put them into effect. The National Assn. of Home Builders had asked the President to give FHA orders on that point. The lower down payments made possible by the bill are a minimum of 3 per cent of the first $10,000 of appraised value, 15 per cent on the $10,000-to-$16,000 segment, and 30 per cent above that. The present requirements are at least 5 per cent on the first $9,000, and 25 per cent above that. Thus the down payment on a $15,000 home could be cut from $1,950 to $1,050.
