Iowa <AP>—As one farmer to another. Roswcll Garst hopes that his guest Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev will net up early next Wednesday morning. "My best judgment tells me that Mi.

"I am urging both the Soviet delegation and our own State Department that tin- ladies in the party come from Des Moines in a separate convoy," Garst said. Womenfolks will include Mrs. Khrushchev and the iwo Khrushchev daughters.

At least four members of the powerful Communist Central Committee have been thrown out with no announcement that they will be assigned to other jobs. These are Chang Wen-t'ien and V'ang Chia-hsiang, vice ministers of foreign affairs. Marshal Peng 'leh-huai, minister of defense, and Gen. Huang Ko-cheng, former a-my chief of staff. These names mean nothing to most Americans. But put it in American terms: Suppose the secretary of state's two top deputies, the secretary of defense and a lop army advisor all were suddenly fired out of hand by President Eisenhower.

They will fly in a Look private plane from New York to Des Moines. When the Khrushchev entourage comes from Des Moines to Coon Rapids the plane will stand by at the Carroll Airport to pick up news material and photographs to be flown from here to New York editorial offices for the next edition of the magazine.

Coon Rapids Highlight of Nikita s Trip He'll See Iowa's Tremendous Agriculture Output By WILLIAM L. EBERLINE DES MOINES (API—Iowa gets a chance next week to show Soviet . Premier Nikita Khrushchev its tremendous agricultural produc- , lion. j And that, in the opinion of state i officials, is about the most important thing he'll see during his visit to the United States, i The stopover in Iowa is the one thing the Russian strong man specifically asked for on his American visit. Old Acquaintance He wants to see an old acquaintance—Roswell 'Bobi Garst, Coon Rapids farmer who sold Romania and Russia big quantities of seed corn a few years back. Garst is one of comparatively few Americans to do business with the USSR since the Iron Curtain clanged shut after World War II. But more than a personal visit with Garst. Khrushchev obviously is interested in seeing America's vaunted food production and in picking up a little of the American farmer's know-how. "it's very evident why he wants to come to Iowa," commented Gov. Hersehel Loveless. "In Russia. 85 per cent of the population is engaged in agriculture to raise the food to feed the people. "Khrushchev wants to find out how the United States with only 22 per cent of the population engaged in agricultural pursuits, can raise enough to feed not only themselves and the rest of the nation, hut to produce surpluses of most major crops." From a corn production standpoint, Iowa is all dolled up in its front-parlor best for Khrushchev's v isit. Record Crop The state's total corn crop this year is estimated by the U.S. Department of Agriculture at an all- time record 814.fi53.000 bushels, or 20 per cent more than the previous record set in 1048. "That certainly should make a p r o I o u n d impression on Mr. Khrushchev," commented Secretary ol Slate Mclvin D. Synhorst. "Man's basic welfare depends in large measure on what comes out ol the soil, and here in Iowa we have the After Uneventful Harlem Tour- Khrushchev Flies West to See How Rest of U.S. Lives By ARTHUR EDSON NEW YORK <AP) - Nikita Khrushchev took a brisk, uneventful tour of Harlem today, and then flew to Los Angeles for a quick look at the West. I His big plane left Idlewild airport at 9:42 a.m. IEDTI, for a 154-hour flight to Los Angeles. I Much had been made of Khrush- I chev's plans to visit Harlem, one 1 of the world's best known Negro communities.

I Little Stir > i Rut today's trip made no more ol a stir than it would through any other part of the city so early i in the morning. I Trucks had washed down the 'streets before Khrushchev went by, cleaning the place up a bit. Only several hundred persons were out when Khrushchev went by. A few waved. Khrushchev made his visit 12 hours too early. He should havelers seen it on Saturday night. Then f not the joint is jumping. j " At the airport Khrushchev touched on a point that has bothered everyone who has watched his whirlwind campaign: He is meeting plenty of big shots, but scarcely any garden variety Americans. he is sorry he "working peo- Khrushchev said hasn't seen more pie."

Adlai Suggests Khrushchev Plan Studied Seriously CHICAGO IAP' - Adlai Stevenson Friday night suggested a serious, open-minded study of Nikita Khrushchev's disarmament proposal. Stevenson, twice the Democratic candidate for president, plans to meet the Russian premier Wednesday w h v n Khrushchev will visit Coon Rapids. Stevenson's statement: "Mr. Khrushchev's total disarmament proposal must be taken seriously. The only way to the scourge of war is to eliminate the means of war. And Mr. Khrushchev has proposed just what we have all preached—a disarmed world. "Whether he means what he says is the question now. We have reason to be skeptical but we have better reason to study his proposal with an open mind and high hope for progress at last towards arms control with security. "The Soviet Union knows well as we do that in the nuclear age no nation can nllord unlimited war. I have often said that a danger greater to us than war is Soviet economic and political penetration around the world." tural area of comparable size in the world." Synhorst said he picture of great farm productivity is the most important thing Khrushchev j could be shown in his tour of the I United States. It could well be a | deterrent to any Russian aggres- ; sive plans because "it will show him how we can supply our armed forces and people in time of war," i he added. ' Khrushchev is known to be much interested in hybrid corn, i On it he has pinned much of his : faith for increasing the output of Russian farms. His interest is indicated by the plan lor him to visit the Piuneer lli-bred Corn Co. at .Johnston as, well as the Garst farms. Khrushchev looks upon hybrid corn as the key to increasing the protein—-meal and eggs—content ol the Russian diet, and reducing the starchy foods that now com-. prise the largest part of what So-' l.viet citizens eat.

WEST BRANCH < AP -Former President Herbert Hoover next summer probably will make his longest visit to Iowa since leaving the state as a young orphan almost 75 years ago. : Hoover plans to come here, his birthplace, to dedicate the Hoover Library-Museum and will stay upwards of a week to make tape recordings, William B Anderson of West Branch said Saturday, j Anderson, president of the loun- klation managing Hoover Birth; place Park here, said the record! ings will describe many of the articles in the museum. Ik' said the building probably will he dedicated on Hoover's next birthday, Aug. 10, ItiiiO. Const ruc- tioirol the building is expected to be completed next May or June. Many of Hoover's personal papers and mementoes, now at the Hoover War and Peace Library ' at Stanlord University, will be , transferred hero, Anderson said. While in Iowa, the former president is expected to be the guest of Mr and Mrs. Howard Hall of Cedar Rapids, Anderson said. Hall is a member of the foundation's Executive Committee. By WILLIAM N. OATIS UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. <AP> —Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev's four-year plan for a world without armies or arms struck most non-Communist diplomats today as a propaganda maneuver- but one worthy of study. Western delegates at the U.N. Plan Hoopla To Build Up Sale of Bonds WASHINGTON <AP(-President Eisenhower and Treasury officials are planning a bit of hoopla next week in an effort to build a fire under the lagging savings bond program. The occasion will be the signing by Eisenhower of a bill that will permit the Treasury to increase savings bond interest rates to 3 :i i per cent. The increase from the present 3'.| per cent will be retroactive to June 1. When Eisenhower signs the measure, he will make public an exchange of letters with Secretary ol the Treasury Robert B. Anderson. The President also is expected to invite photographers to record the signing, a gambit reserved for action on major legislation. Rates are not raised automatically by the new legislation. Anderson must first tell the President there is a need for higher rates and Eisenhower must agree This will be the subject of the exchange or letters. Willi savings and loan associations paying ;j'i> to 4 per cent interest, sales of savings bonds have been declining since spring. Old bonds, meanwhile, have been cashed in at increasing rates. There is a growing gap between the amount the treasury collects lion) bond sales and the amount it pays out to redeem old bonds In the first eight months of 1058, the Treasury collected $3,205,000,000 from bond buyers. It paid out S3.207.000,000. including interest, to redeem old bonds. Collections in the first eight months ol this year slumped to $2,053,000 000 Redemptions have drained the treasury of $3,711,000,000. Band Festival Buttons on Sale promised to give consideration to the plan but the prediction was they will eventually reject it as a Utopian dream everyone shares- hut only a dream at the present stage of the East-West struggle. Little New Disappointment was felt in many world capitals that basically his widely advertised program put forward Friday before the 82-nation General Assembly offered little new. Khrushchev was vague about establishing controls for his program ol scrapping armed forces and weapons of wars—and Western insistence on controls has been the nub of the disarmament deadlock. Secretary of Slate Christian A. Ilerter said in a formal statement the scheme "will require very careful examination though it seems to repeat proposals for total disarmament made by the Soviet Union" in 1932 and 1955. "The United Slates." Herter said, "will go as far on the path of controlled disarmament as any other country. I stress the word 'controlled' because up to now the previous proposals have foundered on the Soviet government's refusal to agree to effective controls." British Foreign Secretary Selwyn Lloyd told newsmen on arriving back in London this morning "control is the essence" of any disarmament plan. Lloyd declared the plan he submitted to the U.N. on Thursday and Khrushchev's contained similar elements. "We need to work on both plans and see whether anything can be made of them." British Plan The British plan aimed at the abolition of nuclear weapons and reduction of conventional weapons to low levels in three stages and with controls. Both plans will come before the 10-nation East-West disarmament talks in Geneva early next year. Communist delegations — Hungary and Poland—hailed the So- Arms Plan Sec Page 7 and especially the people do want war. I "Unfortunately, for obvious 1 reasons, 1 did not have the op' portunity to come in close contact with the ordinary people of New York." j He then explained why: j "The working people might ask i why there were no meetings between them and me. I have been told of some provocative elements • who take a negative attitude to i our visit to the city. \ "It is my firm impression that 1 those who arc unfriendly are very few, only a drop in the sea." Out Early The Khrushehcvs were out early today, apparently still going strong despite the terrific pace they have maintained. Both had kind words for the officials of the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel, where they stayed while here, and for at least one hotel em­ ploye. Miss Theresa Pizzorusso, an elevator operator from Brooklyn, had goodbyes, in English, from both Mr. and Mrs. Khrushchev. "He was very courteous," she said, "and so was his wife." The Russian Premier shook hands with Fio Dell Agnese, manager of the Waldorf Towers apartments, and said, in Russian, "Thank you very much for everything," Dell Agnese, an old hand at handling dignitaries, said: "Mr. Khrushchev seemed to be happy. He was beaming." A hard man to pry away from a microphone once he gets in front of it, Khrushchev talked for 15 minutes at the airport. He put in a plug for the disarmament plan he gave the United Nations Friday. "If accepted," he said, it "would open up a new era of peaceful relations between the states." His final words: "Goodbye, dear friends." Strangest Trip Khrushchev's plane — a U.S. military jet—will rush him across the continent to fulfill one of the strangest appointments in what must bo tho strangest trip ever undertaken by the head of a major modern nation. Movie Filming He is due in Los Angeles in time for lunch at 20th Century- Fox studios. Then he will see the filming of a number from tho musical "Can-Can." If everything is on schedule, this would be just over 24 hours from the moment he proposed world disarmament in lour years to the United Nations. Tonight, there is a dinner given by Mayor Norris Poulson of Los Angeles. Sunday he is off for San Francisco. Then comes the I rip back by way of Des Moines and Pittsburgh, winding up with a series of talks with President Eisenhower. Friday, Khrushchev put in what has now become known as one of his typical days. That is, it had a bit of everything. In his UN. disarmament pro- Klirusliclicv .....

Harold W Kieck. pas tor of the church, said that some items such as steel bar joints had failed to arrive from the mills on schedule and had been fabricated locally to avoid further delay In o t h e r instances, construct i o n schedules have been switched so that work can proceed while awaiting materials which have not been delivered. He said that steel for the SI Paul construction job had been ordered well in advance but lor some reason shipments seem to have been held up or sidetracked. He added that he is "sick of pussyfooting" and "perturbed that Uncle Sam hasn't stepped in un- uer provisions ol the Tall-Hartley Law" as in the case of railroads and other strikes. Construction of the new Carroll County State Bank, on the other hand, is proceeding on schedule alter a delay at the beginning of the strike when a large steel beam was "missent", according to Carl J. Hess, president. Because there are no local industries in this area which arc large users of steel, no direct effects have been fell in nianulac- turjjjg or labor. John W Cosens, manager of the Carroll ol'tice ol the Iowa Stale Employment Commission, said that there have been no lav oils or shortened work weeks attributable to the steel strike and few layoffs of any kind. He said the unemployment claims load had been light recently but that some observers are predicting an influx of labor from the industrial centers if the strike continues into next month. Chamber of Commerce officials said that retail sales are good and bank officials reported no adverse j effect upon bank deposits. Fifteen liuiidr Booster Buttons uted for . ale in eating places.
