It seems to be working out, because Bergln, editor of the Nationalist, of Carlow, Lelnster, Ireland, has found that Americans are more than willing to help him when he's puzzled by some particularly American custom, especially when they discover he is a foreigner. "Of course," he said, "being Irish In this country does no harm." He does meet an occasional rude person in his travels, he admitted, "but you find those in every country." Smooth Trip Riding buses, he said, "smooth," particularly on the turnpikes and expressways. He said it's like riding on an airplane except for the time factor involved. Food, he said, is "interesting," well served and prepared and he is particularly struck by the cleanliness of the places in which he has eaten, The food, he noted, is in very great variety befitting the variety of people in this country. He has become acclimatized to the hot weather, he said, though it is much cooler in Ireland. He said he had made a "couple of mistakes" as, for example, in bringing shirts a little too heavy lor the climate here at this time of the year. Dodges Too Much Sim But, he said, he is being careful not to stay out in the hot sun too long, as he has been advised. America has a "very fine free press," Bergln said, no better or worse than that in Britain or Ireland. He believes, however, that the British press is a bit more advanced in design and makeup than the American press. He said the grass-roots press the country newspapers, deserve great credit lor the difficulties under which they work and for the courage pf their, editors. On his first visit to this country/ Bergin will go on to Colorado, and. hopes to touch on Chicago and Washington, D.C. before returning to New York and back to Ireland at the end of August. Illia Seems Sure Bet in Argentina BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP)—Dr. Arturo Illia, high man in the July 7 elections, appears certain of enough electoral college votes to elect him president of Argentina. Illla's Peoples Radical party received about 25 per cent of the popular vote. But the 169 seats his party won in the electoral college fell 70 short of the half-plus- one majority needed to make him president. The 476-seat college will meet July 31 to elect a president. The country doctor from Cordoba Province has been conduct- Ing some horse trading with other parties lor the additional necessary votes. He seems ^ assured of 73. His candidacy, has met with no substantial opposition from any of the other 22 parties. Deposed President Arturo Frondizi's Intransigent Radical party, which won 109 electoral college votes, has split. One faction offered to back Illia K he dropped his running mate, Carlos Perette, and ca- cepted an intransigent as vice president. Illia rejected ttje proposal, I LIKE IT Lium Bcrgin, an editor from Ireland, obviously enjoying himself as he munches on typically-American corn on the cob at the Stratford Hotel last night.

'-...Of President WASHINGTON (AP)—A special six-member fact-finding committee delivered to President Kenneday today its report on : the facts and issues in the railway work rules dispute. The report is to be sent to Congress Monday, along with Kennedy's proposals for legislation to block a nationwide rail strike. The committee, headed by Secretary of Labor W. Willard Wirtz, entered Kennedy's office without making any comment. It completed the report Thursday night, with help from a staff of Labor and Commerce department aides. The President probably will take the report with 'him for study at rlyannis Port, Mass., over the weekend. He plans to have his recommendations ready for presentation to Congress Monday. The President, Wirtz and congressional leaders have said they lope some agreement would be arrived at before legislation is necessary to break the union- management deadlock. But there las been no indication of any be- lind-the-scenes negotiations. At Kennedy's request the carriers agreed to hold off Instituting new work rules—designed to elim- nate eventually some 60,000 rail lobs deemed unnecessary by management—until July 29. Similarly, he unions agreed not to take any strike action until that time. A draft of the report was shown to the nation's largest rail car- •iers and five operating unions who are involved in the work rules dispute.

ENSZ MOSCOW (AP) — Premier Khrushchev declared today a new world war is not nessary to build communism or speed up revolution. He said a nuclear war could destroy mankind and even those who survive might "envy the dead." The Soviet leader laid down the blunt challenge to his Chinese Communist opponents — who believe revolutionary wars are inevitable — at a Kremlin friendship rally for visiting Hungarian Premier Janos Kadar. As he spoke his aides were fighting the argument out with Chinese delegates at rapidly-collapsing peace talks at a suburban villa. Khrushchev told 6,000 widly applauding persons at the rally that "a world war is necessary neither for the building of the socialism nor communism, nor for the acceleration of the world revolution." He said that "the superiority of the forces pf socialism, peace and democracy over the forces of imperialism, reaction and aggression is growing." Without specifying how, Khrushchev insisted "a concrete possibility of preventing world war has appeared. And this is not merely a possibility, but a vita' necessity for the peoples of the world." Victory Certain Khrushchev said all the peoples of the world would break with capitalism sooner or later but "the victory of socialism ii every given country is decided by the people of that country. This question cannot be solved by unleashing a world thermonuclear war." ' This was a direct slap at Chinese views. Obviously referring to the split with China, Khrushchev also said bitterly that those who disunite world communism are "playing into the hands of imperialism." He repeated his pledge that the Soviet Union will never be the first to use thermonuclear arms or to unleash a world war." Khrushchev also accused the Chinese, in a long departure from his text, of attempting to revive 'the cult of the personality" of Stalin. "Some people want to return to ihose times when a worker went out to work and never knew svhether he would return to his wife and children," he continued. "We are arresting people and we will continue to arrest those who should be arrested," he said. But he said that his regime was not arresting people without good reason under the law. The talks, which began July 5, liave been chalked off as a failure and all that reportedly remains s issuance of a communique end- ng the conference. Shape Division The two sides svere reported still sharply divided on wording of the communique. The Soviets were said to be insisting on a statement blaming he Chinese for the discord in he Communist camp. The Chinese reportedly were urging a non-commital statement leaving the door open for further talks. The meeting was. held today after a one-day recess. For the irst time the Chinese were accompanied' by their ambassador :o Moscow, Pan Tsu-li. From Peking, the Chinese Foreign Ministry accused the Soviets of erring In pursuing Communist goals. It said Communist rebels in South Viet Nam "by their own deeds have shosvn the whole world hat the correct way to win national liberation Is not to affect peaceful coexistence with the ag- ;ressors and oppressors, but to use a revolutionary armed force .0 defend onself and fight the enemy."

City to Ask Alton merchants will be asked whether they favor discontinuance or continuance of metered park- ng, the City Council's real estate committee decided Thursday night. If the merchants favor continuance, they are to be asked to give their suggestions as to the future of the program, the com- nittee said. Mayor P. W. Day said this decision was reached when the committee met to give initial consideration to the report of the Citizens' Off-Street Parking Lot Committee. After general discussion of the INNOCENT, FREED FINAILY Frank Smith, now 45, smiles broadly in Philadelphia after his release from prison where he had spent 13 years for a crime he successfully proved he did not commit, Testimony by another man that Smith had taken part in a holdup in 1050 was recanted and a judge ordered Smith's immediate release, The freed man says he isn't bitter and hopes to sell sangs he wrote while In prison, (AP WirephQto) metered parking and off-stree parking situation, said Day, the committee directed him to sounc out the businessmen and repor at a later committee meeting. He was preparing today to not ify businessmen's groups for the various city districts having met ers and lots, such as Downtown Alton, Inc., Upper Alton Business Men's Association, and East End Improvement Association. To Ask Suggestions "I shall ask them whether the; favor continuing or discontinuini meters, and what are their sug gestions," he said. Day said that the committee meeting at city hall, not only dis cussed the recommendations of th new Off Street Parking commit tee, but also the metered parking situation in general. Present were Aldermen Newel! Allen, Elvis Tarrant, and William H. Warren of the real estate committee, and also Alderman James P. McLaughlin, chairman of the streets committee. The off-street parking report, re cently referred for committee review, recommends a $250,000 revenue bond issue to increase the off-street parking lot facilities in downtown Alton and Upper Alton. The bonds would be retired through meter earnings. Day said that the committee found that meter revenues are declining, uud that, in addition to the demand for provision of more off-street parking facilities, an expensive program for meter replacement, seems needed. $9,000 Drop In the city's last fiscal year, ending March 31, coin collections from both curb and off-street meters totaled only ?55,617 a drop of about ?9,000 from the immediately previous year. This decline is apparently continuing, Day said. A report of the city comptroller shows that for the 12 months ending last June 30, collections from meters yielded the still lesser amount of $52,012. The decline In collections, Day added, is apparently due to three factors. (1) reduction of meter fees in the downtown area; (2) construction of more private parking lots; and (3) an Increasing cost of rep'j.ring and nuilntenunce of aging meters now In use- Complete Ban Still His Goal By I'HESTON GKOVEK MOSCOW (AP) - Premier <hrushchev expressed optimism oday about the chances lor a Big Three agreement in current negotiations on a limited nuclear test ban and said he would like to see outlawing of all such tests, ncluding those underground. The Soviet leader reiterated in a Kremlin speech that he wanted an East-West nonaggression pact. He did not insist that it be tied to the treaty being negotiated here to forbid nuclear test blasts in the air, outer space and under water. This would seem to indicate that Khrushchev might be receptive to a counttrsuggestion made by President Kennedy through his special envoy, W. Averell Harrl- man, that the issue be handled through nonaggression declarations. At the same time, Khrushchev again announced he was ready to permit Western inspection of .vital military installations inside the Soviet Union as a safeguard against concentrations for a surprise attack. To Help Ease Tension This was offered as a device for helping to ease world tensions and was not directly connected with the test ban treaty. Speaking of the U.S., British and Russian test ban talks in Moscow, Khrushchev said: "We are under the impression 4 that there is hope now of achieving agreement on the banning o^ nuclear tests in the atmosphere,,' cosmic space and under water if, of course, there are no special changes in the positions of the American and British representatives. "We would like to achieve such an agreement that would include the banning of all tests, including underground tests as well. "It has been demonstrated by science and technique that the banning of all tests, including underground ones, can be controlled with the help of national technical means of detection which are at the disposal of nations now. But the representatives of the United States and England still insist on the necessity of international inspection. They do not want to give up their aspirations which, in reality, have nothing Io do with the cessation of nuclear tests. Tell*j Reason "Why and what for is this being done? In order to have the chance to carry out intelligence work." "The picture is quite clear: < Apparently, we will not reach agreement on the ban of underground nuclear tests at the present time. Nevertheless, the Soviet government considers that if an agreement is achieved on a ban of nuclear tests in the atmos- sphere, cosmic space and under water, there will be an important and useful step forward." Bidding for easing of East-West tensions at a time when the Soviet Union remains heavily involved in a Communist family dispute with Red China, Khrushchev spoke at a friendship rally lor visiting Hungarian Communist leader Janos Kadar. In quick succession he: Revived a Russian oiler of 1958 to permit foreign inspectors to take up station at Soviet airfields, railroad stations, highways and ports to prevent secret concentrations of troops for surprise attacks. Would Trade Teams Proposed an exchange of inspection teams betweer. Western troops In West Germany and "oviet troops in East Germany, adding that the Russians were ready to negotiate a reciprocal reduction In the number of those troops on both sides. Insisted again on the signing of a peace treaty with Germany that would settle the status of Went Berlin, but net no deadline. Declared a new world war in not necessary to build communism or speed up revolution. Challenging Peking's hard llm» views, ho Bald a nuclear war could destroy mankind and even those who Hurvivu might "«ivy the dead."
