Carroll Daily Times Herald Vol. 90—No. 222 Carroll, Iowa, Monday, September 21, 1959—Eight Pages Delivered by Carrier Boy Each «f _ SlngU # C Copy Evening for 35 Cent* Per Weak Iowa Ready for Khrushchev's Visit Tomorrow Plan a Courteous Reception; Hell See 'Ordinary People' DES MOINES (AP) — Nikita Khrushchev comes to Iowa Tuesday to what is expected to be the most courteous reception the Russian premier has yet received in this country. In tact, the Russian's Iowa hosts are determined to see that he talks to "ordinary people." Khrushchev has complained that on his tour of Washington and New York he was unable to meet anyone but officials and executives. Roswelf Garst. Coon Rapids farmer who Nikita will visit Wednesday, says "Khrushchev to any employe in his visit. He's can talk to hired men, plant work- welcome to talk to anybody he ers and anybody else he wants, wants to." But he will have to get up early in the morning to do so. We have a tight schedule on the farm." To Visit 2 Plants The Russian premier will visit at least two industrial plants in Des Moines after his arrival Tuesday afternoon — the Des Moines Packing Co. and the John Deere Des Moines Works. Packing Co. President Lester Bookey says "Khrushchev will have plenty of opportunity to talk Mrs. Klv •.shchev, who has strayed from her husband's side very little since they arrived in the United States, will be given a tour of the public school system at Coon Rapids and also is expected to visit a laundromat and a food market. Garst says Khrushchev isn't going to Coon Rapids to "meet a great lot of people. He's coming to see the mechanization of agriculture, the effects of fertilization of the soil, how cattle eat corncobs and how a small community lives." 3!i Hours at Coon Rapids Khrushchev is expected to spend 3 '2 hours in the Coon Rapids vicinity and then go to Iowa State University at Ames. The visit of the premier will be the most widely covered by news media of any visitor to Iowa. An estimated 300 newsmen will be in the state. Security a r r a n g e m ents for Khrushchev also will be the most stringent of any visitor to the Khrushchev Simmers— U.S. Railroad Workers Face REA Asked to Accepta Higher Soviet Promier Nikita Khrushchev addressing a banquet given hy the Los Angeles world affairs council in Los Angeles, doubled his fists, raised his voice and told the audience thai if America wanted war or a continuation of the arms race.

The reduction, management said, would bring wages in line with straight-time hourly earnings of production workers in all other industries. Nonoperating workers are those not directly involved with the movement of trains. They are clerks, telegraphers, station agents and similar personnel. Operating employes are engineers, firemen, conductors, switchmen and trainmen. The proposal was presented by individual carriers to local chair- U.S. Labor Khrushchev Chiefs Give a Bad Time' state.

David A. Hamil, in an address to the cooperative's conference here, said "there is no-long term financing program in the Federal Government wich offers borrowers such a low interest rate as does the REA." "The only aspect of the program that leaves us open to criticism," Hamil said, "is the 2 per cent interest rate. "On every other feature of the REA program I believe we have strong support," he continued, "but I am afraid that we eventually will lose this support if we continue to insist stubbornly on a rate of interest which is below the By NORMAN WALKER i The Soviet Premier, according SAN FRANCISCO < AP>~ Nikita I to the union chiefs, blew up on at Khrushchev kept his peculiar j least a half-dozen occasions and brand of belligerent diplomacy going full blast at a tumultuous dinner session with a group of American labor leaders Sunday night.

After hearing the defense and the state on the charges. Judge Henry Shaupp of Fort Dodge pronounced sentence of life imprisonment at the state penitentiary. McDaniel, a physics honor student, was charged in the slayings of Mrs. Monice Larson, 25, wife of an 1SU graduate student, and her daughter, Kimary Ann, 5 months. The slayings occurred last Tuesday at the Larsons' apartment in the Hawthorne student housing center at the university. McDaniel told officers he had been watching television prior to the slayings and got an "overpowering urge to kill." He said he went to the Larson apartment where the young mother had been baking a cake and strangled her. He said he smothered the child with a pillow, but later returned in a futile attempt to revive the baby. Mrs. Larson's husband, Harold, 28, was attending classes as a graduate student at the time. Another child, Douglas, 5, was in school. McDaniel, a six-foot, blond haired youth with an athletic build, appeared unshaken and adopted an almost military stance Judge wound up conceding: "Our positions are irreconcilable." Accuses Reuthcr Walter Reuther, Auto Workers Union president and spokesman for the labor group, said Khrushchev accused him of being a dictator and "a capitalistic stooge." "I certainly think Mr. Khrushchev feels we gave him a very bad time—he made that quite clear," Reuther told a jammed news conference after the three- hour, 20-minute private dinner. The union men said they blasted communism in no uncertain terms and told Khrushchev of American workers' devotion to freedom. They said Khrushchev defended the Communist system and both sides thereupon agreed to disagree. No effort was made to tone down questions, Reuther said, although there had been advance word State Department officials wanted to avoid having Khrushchev further irritated on his American tour. Reuther said his group had received no request for a kid glove approach. Refuses to Budge Khrushchev didn't budge an inch. When asked about the 1956 revolt in Hungary, suppressed by Soviet troops, he accused the revolutionaries of being" "hooligans and saboteurs." Why is it that Soviet workers Union Dinner ....
