N. Disarmament Plan By WILLIAM L. RYAN WASHINGTON <AP> — Premier Nikita Khrushchev declared today that Russia and the United States must find ways to use nuclear power and rocket science for peace or "the earth will be covered with ashes and graves." In his first major speech on American soil, the Soviet Communist leader said that in the search for peace "it is necessary for each side to meet the other half way." Press Club Speech He announced to a National Press Club luncheon audience that he intends to submit a now proposal on disarmament to the United Nations. He will address the U.N. General Assembly in New York Friday. He said lie hopes this proposal "will play an important pail in the solution" of the disarmament problem, "the most burning issue of our time." Khrushchev renewed his demands for a peace treaty with Germany, meaning West Germany and Communist East Germany, without waiting for unification as the Western powers insist. In this connection he launched) The Soviet Union, Khrushchev an attack on West Germany. He; assert cd, is ready to consider any said "certain quarters in West i P r ?P™ a ? "which might help the Germany are harboring plans for setting the Soviet Union and the other powers at loggerheads, aggravating the relations between them and keeping the world in a slate ot international tension." "To allow only one possibility," Khrushchev said, "the conclusion of a peace treaty with a united! Germany only, which of course would be the best thing — would be tantamount to scrapping the question of a peace treaty." 150 Coming Thursday for Loan Water Fight Draws Crowd— Most spectacular display at the two-day Iowa Firemen's Association convention here Tuesday and Wednesday was the annual water fight between four-man teams. Main Street was blocked off between Sixth and Filth and hundreds of spectators lined the sidewalks and crowded onto the Court House lawn for vantage points as the fire-fighters strove to propel a barrel from one end of a cable to the other. Shown in picture above, a Chariton team looked well on the way to victory only to have a Brandon delegation turn the tables. The barrel shown here at far left, was driven back the Firemen Elect, Select Guthrie Center for '60 length of the cable to a point directly above firemen shown at right just after the picture was snapped. The losers, at right, appeared to get a worse drenching while apparently winning, than they did when the victors used a jet-like stream of water to keep the barrel at the far end of the cable. Brandon captured the first and second prizes and Griswold finished third in the one-and-one-half hour contests. Spectators near the scene received frequent sprinklings but managed to avoid being drenched. (Staff Photo) (MORE PICTURES) Pages 6, 12.) The 82nd annual convention ol the Iowa Firemen's Association adjourned at noon Wednesday as delegates elected new officers and selected Guthrie Center as the site of next year 's convention.

Old style fire engines fro m throughout the state took part in the parade along with marching bands from Carroll High, Kuemper High and Atlantic High Schools and tanks and Jeeps from the local Army Reserve unit. Inclement weather that threaten- cd to put a damper on the parade Must Be Free to Adjust, Expand, Farmers Are Told AUDUBON (AP) — Farmers must be free in their operations and less dependent on government in making decisions if they arc to have full opportunity to adjust and expand, Marvin L. McLain, assistant U. S. secretary of agriculture, said here Tuesday night. "It will also require considerably more change in our farm laws by the Congress and much less government interference." the former Brooklyn, Iowa, farmer told the first annual Farmer-Businessmen's banquet. About 400 persons attended. McLain said: "When agricultural production flows to the government under price control operations, instead of to market, we are sure to be in trouble." He said progress has been made in the right direction but a lot more needs to be done. McLain said the index of prices paid by farmers has risen only four per cent under the Eisenhower administration whereas it dou- i bled between 1939 and 1952. with slight precipitation cleared just as the procession got underway about 7:30 p.m. The parade route was policed by the Carroll Colonels, State Highway Patrol, city police and the sheriff's office. Atlantic Scores Firemen from Atlantic garnered the greatest number of prizes in contests as they accounted for three first places, four seconds and five thirds.

By DAN PERKES COON RAPIDS iAPi—What do some Midwest farmers think of Nikita Khrushchev's visit to the United States? A sampling taken here shows that many are in favor of it, although they have their doubts as to what the trip will accomplish toward easing world tensions. Several thousand corn belt farmers from Iowa, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri and Colorado are attending an open house here this week sponsored by the Garst & Thomas Hybrid Seed Corn Co. Hoswell iBob) Garst, 61, half owner of the firm, will be host LITTLE L.IZ The Weather in Carroll (Dull.v Triiiprnilim -N J 'liurlri.v Iowa I'll 1*1 if Sen 'let' ('iiiii(liiii) > Yesterday's high Yesterday's low At 7 a.m. today At 10 a,m. today Weather A Year Ago— Under clear skies, temperatures ranged from a high of ,09 to a low ol 44 a year ago today. The best way to get a chip off a guy's shoulder is to let him take a bow now and then. next Wednesday when the Soviet premier comes to Coon Rapids. He has no doubts that Khrushchev will learn much from the American farmer. "I'm opposed to hunger in any country. Khrushchev is coming here to learn more ways of producing more food for his people. I'll tell him anything he wants to know," Garst said Wednesday. Garst said he will give Khrushchev a detailed tour of his operations. A few farmers attending the open house said they were more interested in corn than Khrushchev's visit, but generally agreed that the premier's visit could help the cause for world peace. One farmer, Roy Burchette of Kirksville, Mo., said: "If Khrushchev comes here with an open nund and willing to learn he'll find we are a different type of people than he imagined we are." Another farmer commented that he believed the tour by Khrushchev will help break down some of the cold war barriers which have existed between the U. S. and the Soviet Union. A third said that "someone had to start the ball rolling in this direction. Garst did," Butler Plan Is Approved by Democrats WASHINGTON (AP) — The Democratic National Committee Wednesday adopted a 1900 convention rule designed to lessen the chances of a Southern revolt against the convention nominees. Surprisingly, the .action was taken without debate. The rule is the same one adopted in the 1950 convention. It provides that states in sending delegations to the convention undertake to assure that voters of the state will have a chance to ballot for the convention nominees, and that electors will be named who are pledged formally or in good conscience to the convention candidates. Proposed Readoption Democratic Chairman Paul M. Butler proposed readoption of the 1956 rule and his plan was presented to the committee Wednesday. Southern members had erupted violently against Butler several weeks ago when he first suggested the readoption of the delegate good faith proposal and it was expected they would fight it Wednesday with all their strength. They apparently decided that they had little chance of deteating the plan on a roll call vote, so avoided a lengthy debate on it. Later the committee was to take up a controversial convention delegate apportionment plan which Butler revised at the last minute to avoid opposition from the South and some other states, Butler's revised proposal would give each state in the next convention 2' j votes for each of its U.S. senators and representatives, do away with a 15-ycar-old bonus system, and where a state would lose under such apportionment compared with 1950 the difference would be made up so no state would lose any votes. Double Number The new plan would permit states to double the number of allotted delegates with a half vote given each delegate. Thus, if all states did this the, 1900 convention would at Los Angeles have 3,022 delegates. The last convention had 2.744. The Democrats have been operating under a basic rule that gives a state two votes in the convention olr each senator and one for each House member plus a whole series of bonuses that have grown up through the years. Since the Souther, state's arc heavily Democratic—in effect one- party states in some instances— they have gained most from bonuses allowed. Even before Butler sent his two proposals to committee members for study, some Southern members were demanding his ouster because of his insistence on a strong civil rights plank in the 1960 platform. ion Approximately 150 officers and directors of National Farm Loan associations in Western Iowa will convene at the Burke Motor Inn here Thursday. Thomas A. Maxwell Jr.. president of the Federal Land Bank of Omaha, will be the main speaker. Panel discussions concerned with the problems of long - term credit service to Iowa farmers will be conducted. Reports will be given. Appearing on the morning program will be William H. Yungclas, Webster City: Otto E. Franck, Rockwell City; Randall B. Van Houten. Correctionville; and Wilber E. Prall, Lamoni. Mr. Yung­ clas is a member of the National Farm Loan Association director's advisory committee for the four- state Omaha district. He will report on the committees' activities during the past year.

Lists Alternatives He said the alternatives to international cooperation are these: 'Either the latest achievements of scientific and technical thought —the discovery of the secret of the atom, the development of rockets and the penetration of outer space—will be placed in the service of a peaceful future and prosperity of mankind, or they will be used for the purpose of: destruction and annihilation and, as a result, the earth will be covered with ashes and graves." Khrushchev spoke in Russian. His speech was translated, roughly a paragraph at a time, by Oleg Troyanovsky. Toward the end of the talk he made an attack on United States and Western restrictions on trade with the Soviet Union. He would like to buy heavy machinery in this country but American policy forbids it. "It is high time," Khrushchev said, "to do away with the bankrupt policy of discrimination in trade and there by clear the atmosphere in the relations between our countries." Jam-Packed Day The press club speech came halfway in a jam-packed day for Khrushchev. In the morning he visited the fabulous agricultural experiment station at Beltsville, Md. Bouncy and jovial, he said there that the United States and Russia would be better off if they concentrated on peaceful pursuits, such as raising fine turkeys. He quipped: "ff we don't give a capitalist turkey and a communist turkey a passport, no one can tell the difference." If Khrushchev was in a gay mood, his host, President Eisenhower, displayed a more somber outlook. The President told two White House callers this morning he hoped the Khrushchev visit might do some good toward easing world tensions. Khrushchev, nattily attired and apparently none the worse for wear after the long first day of his historic trip, showed his usual ebullience at the experimental farm. His comment on turkeys came as,he looked over an exhibit of prize white turkeys. The visit t o the farm preceded the Soviet Premier's scheduled major address before a audience of newspaper writers. Khrushchev dropped a hint of his primary theme Tuesday night. In an exchange of toasts with President Eisenhower during a White House state dinner, the Soviet leader noted that the United States and the U.S.S.R. are too strong to permit quarreling between them. He added: "If we were weak countries, then it would be another matter, because when the weak quarrel, they are just scratching each other's faces and it takes just a couple of days for a cosmetician and everything comes out right again. But, if we quarrel, then not only our countries can suffer colossal damage, but the other countries of the world will also be involved in a world shambles." Old Song This is the note the Soviet leader sounded long ago—that if the Soviet Union and the United States, as the two most powerful countries on earth, could settle Khrushchev .... See Page 15 R.
