By WILLIAM L. RYAN NEW YORK (AP) - Nikita S. Khrushchev hit the big town today in brisk, sunny weather, expressing hope a bright sun always would shine on Soviet - American relations. The Soviet Premier's deluxe special train from Washington pulled into this city of teeming millions at 11:54 a.m. on the second leg of his epochal tour of the United States. Swarm of Guards Pennsylvania station, where the train arrived, swarmed with police and security agents. So did every other strategic spot on the fast-paced I'.inerary laid out for the boss of world communism. A crowd of more than 2.000 was on hand outside the terminal on Seventh avenue, waiting for a glimpse of the bouncy visitor from Moscow. The Soviet boss was greeted by Richard C. Patterson, commissioner of the Department of Commerce and Public Events, who is the city's official grceter. The welcome took place in the terminal's baggage room. Thousands Line Streets As a motorcade with the Khrushchev party anfl city officials sped off uptown for the Waldorf - Astoria Hotel, big crowds, silent and unexcitcd, gathered behind barricades for a glimpse. i As it had been in Washington, •. the crowd reaction in New York j was largely one of silent curiosi- j ty. There was little in the way, either of applause or demonstrations, at least at the start. j Most were disappointed. There j was little to see. The motorcade did not stop at the Waldorf, but turned around at that point and headed back downtown toward the Commodore Hotel, scene of Mayor Robert Wagner's luncheon for the visitor. The Waldorf will be Khrush-! clicv's headquarters for his stay in the city. Khrushchev expressed his hope for sunny Soviet-American weather just before his special train left Washington at R:21 a.m. In his luggage, Khrushchev may , have a surprise for the United' Nations here. He had announced | in Washington the Soviet Union was about to propose something new on disarmament. And at the United Nations, U.S. Secretary of State Christian Herter laid down on behalf of the United States a broad program designed to end East-West tension through peaceful exchange in the political, military and economic fields. In Washington President Eisenhower told his news conference he had found Khrushchev's manner and deportment an indication the Soviet premier really was trying to reach agreement regarding international problems. At his first meeting with newsmen since Khrushchev arrived, the President was asked if he noted any real evidence that the Soviet Union might have changed its position on international issues. Too Early The President said it was a bit too early to go into detail or reach conclusions, but Khrushchev's at­ titude generally had been extremely friendly. Eisenhower and Khrushchev meet again Sept. 24 to 27 for more talks at the President's Camp David retreat in Maryland. Bright and early, the energetic Soviet chieftain left the President's guest house and was driven to Union Station to board his special 15-car train. It pulled out at 8:21 a.m. and was due in New York at 12:05 p.m. The visiting Communist leader stated his hope in a brief informal departure speech at the station. The world Communist leader announced in his major Washington speech that thu Soviet Union intends to make new disarmament proposals before the United Nations, where he speaks Friday.

Wol U.S. Fails to Put Satellite Into an Orbit CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. <AP> —The United States failed today to put into orbit a satellite designed for experimenting with a global navigation system. More than an hour after a three- stage launching vehicle lifted the satellite from Cape Canaveral the Defense Department in Washington announced that the third stage apparently had failed to work. A brief announcement said: 'Since confirming data has not been received it must be assumed that the satellite did not go into orbit." The satellite, riding on a combination Thor-Able launcher, lifted cleanly off the pad at Canaveral a! !L34 a.m. The second stage rocket engine fired on schedule. The Advanced Research and Projects Administration had said that the new navigation system if it worked would be more accurate than any systems now available. The satellite was aimed at a Wednesday to all Farm families. Members are asked to indicate their views on agricultural and political issues to be used as a guide in formulating resolutions for the annual Farm Bureau meeting at the Slarline ballroom, Oct. 22. Opinions are asked on reapportionment of the state legislature, state finances, inflation, federal aid to education, federal agricultural policy, states rights, labor legislation, social security and vertical integration in West Central Iowa. Reapportionment Under reapportionment, members are asked to state whether the Farm Bureau should continue to support only such plans as provide for one house based on area and the other on population. If not, they are asked whether they favor <D both chambers of the General Assembly on the basis of population, <2> some population and area representation in each chamber, or (3) both chambers on the basis of area. State Finances In the section on state finances, the opinionnaire points out that unless there is a drastic increase in revenue from present taxes, the next session of the Iowa General Assembly must increase taxes materially to continue operational costs at the present level. Members are asked to give their suggestions for a solution of the problem. Inflation Questions on inflation are as follows: "Do you think the federal government should take stronger action to control present inflation- Opinionnaire . . .

Rocket Ship Makes First Power Flight EDWARDS AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. (AP>—The rocket ship X15, which later this year may blast a man to the edge of space, made its first powered flight today. It skimmed in for a 200 m.p.h.- plus landing on a dry lake bed after 10 minutes in the air. With veteran North American Aviation test pilot Scott Crossfield at the controls, it was cut loose from its B52 mother ship 38,000 feet over this desert test center at 8.0!) a.m. Much of the flight could be seen from the g r o u n d. Crossfield zoomed to 50,000 feet, made some maneuvers while flying a 100-mile circle, then landed after his fuel was exhausted. The stubby-winged, 50-foot black X15, using more powerful engines, is expected to rocket more than 100 miles high at faster than 1000 m.p.h. later this year. past five years, Leo R. Clark, city engineer, said Thursday. Building permits issued here up to mid-September have an estimated construction valuation of $980,100, Mr. Clark said. "With three and one-half months left in this year, it seems almost 1 certain the total will be over the I SL000.000 mark," he said, j The biggest year in new construction and remodeling in Car| roll during the past five years was j in 1956 when the estimated valuation was $1,333,090. records in the • city hall show. In 1955 the total | was $1,112,345. j Ahead of Last Year Building permits issued this 1 • year arc running $420,035 ahead of: the same period a year ago. The i 1958 total was $855.0(50 at the end of the year. Although that was well under the 1956 figure it was \ substantially higher than the low , point reached in 1957 when the total declined to $591,000. j There have been 39 dwelling permits issued this year at an estimated total cost ol $542,000 com- \ pared to 26 for all of last year at j an estimated cost of $366,000. i "The average cost of new houses has gone down during this year," Art Gute, assistant city engineer, said. 'The average cost per house this year is $13,711 compared to $14,077 a year ago," he said. The least costly n2w h o m e s built during the past five years were constructed in 1955 when the average cost was $11,392. In 195(5 the average rose to $12,323, but in 1957 it dropped to $12,084. Commercial Boost New commercial construction in Carroll was given a sharp boost this year with permits for the $110,000 Carroll County State Bank building and the $50,000 Sharp Funeral Home. A building permit for a $150,000 Lutheran church helped hike the estimated value close to the million dollar mark. "Since April of 1950 we have averaged 55 new dwellings per year," the city engineer said. There were more additions to houses this year, but the number of new garages and additions to commercial buildings remained about the same.

Herter Really Trying General The President told a news con- > ference that Khrushchev's man; ner and deportment indicate he s really is trying to reach agree] ment regarding international ; problems. ! This was Eisenhower's first meeting with newsmen since his one hour and 45 minute formal conference with the Soviet chief Tuesday, and his talks with Khrushchev at social events. The first question put to the President was whether he sees any concrete evidence, on the basis of the talks, that Khrushchev may have changed his position on international issues. Eisenhower replied that if is, i still a little bit early to go into <-' onu ' detail or come to any conclusions 1 " oa, ' c > I on that matter. He went on to say, however, that Khrushchev's ; general attitude has been extreme- j ly friendly.

He blamed the noncooperation of the Soviet Union for the arms race of the past 10 years, but declared that the United States regards the forthcoming disarmament talks next year as "a major opportunity."

But whether his address is a surprise or not, the consensus here is that his performance on the first leg of his historic visit to the United States already has added up to significant propaganda for Moscow. He himself has conceded that thus far he has offered no new proposals. He has suggested that the main antagonists in the cold war, if they want to avoid turning this earth into "ashes and graves," must find ways of composing their differences on the future use of nuclear power and rocket science. At the same time he has promised he will present something in the way of disarmament proposals at the United Nations. Asks More 'Give' I n Washington, Khrushchev asked for more "give" on both sides to avoid the grim prospect ol a new world war. There was nothing new in this statement. Rut there was something for Americans to ponder in the way ho handled himself in Washington, and in his deft handling of the sharpest interrogation Washington had to offer. His performance was regarded by many observers as a valuable service to world Communist propaganda. Moscow's 65-year-old iron man subjected himself to a grueling schedule and showed himself no worse for wear. He submitted himself to open, public interrogation. He responded to questions with the dexterity of a practiced politician. Many who attended the luncheon session Wednesday at which Khrushchev addressed the National Press Club, the Women's National Press Club and the Overseas Writers obviously were hostile to Khrushchev's views. But the Soviet leader melted the ice to the extent that he had his audience laughing and applauding. Meets Senators From the luncheon, Khrushchev proceeded to a meeting with members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. His assessment: it was a "very good and useful talk," of the sort which should be multiplied in the interests of exploring each "opportunity for peace." Senate Democratic leader Lyndon B. Johnson of Texas called the senators' session with Khrushchev a "very successful one" which gave the senators an opportunity to gauge the ability, per* formance and capability of the Communist leader. Senator Republican Reader Everett M. Dirksen of Illinois called Khrushchev a "hard-hitting fellow" who "knows what answers he should give from his point of view," No Firm Answers Khrushchev spent 95 minutes with the senators in a question- and-answer session. The senators indicated they failed to get the firm answers they sought. But Sen. Dirksen quoted the Soviet leader as saying Moscow is "prepared to go so far" in compromising the disarmament deadlock and other cold war issues, hinting at some sort of Soviet concession to Western demand. For Khrushchev, the final event in the second of two taxing days in the United States was a Russian-style dinner served to President and Mrs. Eisenhower, the Soviet leader's guests at a Soviet Embassy function'returning Tuesday night's White House dinner to the Premier and his wife. Present were 33 invited Americans and 23 Russians.
