Newspaper reporters at the scene said many students were injured. Early reports estimated the injured at from 25 to 30. Mothers rushed to the school, some screaming, "Where is my child'." There were conflicting reports as to whether the explosion occurred in the kitchen or in a hallway at the rear of the building. Man Killed "Police told me a man came into the hallway with a suitcase and about that time the explosion occurred," said John Harris, Houston Chronicle reporter who arrived at the scene shortly after the explosion. The man was killed, Harris said. Mrs. D. L. Hunt, a teacher, said a boy came running to her during recess and said there was a man in the schoolyard with a suitcase "with a button on it." The student quoted the man as saying he was going to punch the button. Mrs. Hunt said she and another teacher started to evacuate the children but the explosion occurred before they could get out of the building. Counts Bodies Weldon Appelt, who was a block away when the blast occurred, said: "I counted four bodies. One boy was completely devoid of clothes and a little girl had been blown over 100 feet. "The teachers did marvelous job. In the minute it took us to get to the-school they had all the other children outside."

(DETAILS in Obituary Section.) came to a slop. A military brass band blared a martial air as the plane's doors opened and the beaming Soviet leader emerged. The two most powerful leaders in the world shook hands. Smiling, Khrushchev waved his homburg hat as he and the President walked toward the hardwood polished platform nearby for the formal welcoming ceremonies. The two proceeded to the platform between the lines of an honor guard. Family Follows Khrushchev's wife, the buxom Nina Petrovna Khrushcheva, followed close behind her husband. The Khrushchev's two daughters, and the rest of the official party followed. From the crowd there was little applause and no sign that the sectators were over-excited by the precedent-breaking spectacle. The people mostly watched with silent curiosity. In addition to Eisenhower, other high U.S. government officials including Secretary of State Herter were at the airfield to welcome the Soviet Premier. Tightest Security Also waiting at Andrews Air Force Base for the rotund Soviet ruler was the tightest security network of all time for a visting dignitary. Early morning reports said the great Russian plane was delayed by headwinds over the Atlantic. But as the morning wore on the turbo-prop made up some of its lost time, and the delay was not as great as some expected. At the airport, all had been in readiness for hours before the So- soviet leader's TU114 finally touched down. 4,000 Guards Eearly in the day, more than 4,000 security guards lined the 15- mile route into Washington from the air force base. Special armed guards policed the airstrip. Along the tree-lined parkway leading from the airfield to Washington—Khrushchev's route from the airport—the security men took up their posts early, prepared for virtually any contingency. Meantime, just plain spectators sought places of vantage. And everywhere swarms of newsmen and photographers, So- Khrushchey .... See Page 9 Bob Neumayer In Union Carbide Development Job Robert C.
