Kuker Drive for l the Aged Khrushchev Arrives in Iowa A new approach to the community project to build a retirement and nursing convalescent home in Carroll has been advanced by an advisory committee of business men in the area. Recognizing the need to provide facilities for citizens in the later years of their life, the committee has voted to make a public appeal for subscriptions to raise the necessary funds to construct the home here. 100-Bed Structure The committee has studied the problem at length and has visited other retirement homes in the state. On the basis of this information it was agreed to secure plans for a proposed 100-bed retirement and nursing convalescent home. Because of their training, understanding and experience in administering to the aged, the committee turned to the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration who have opera- led St. Anthony Hospital in Carroll since 1905. They agreed to not only staff the pro posed home and operate it but also donated the site for the building. It will be constructed adjacent to the hospital and will consist ot' two wings, one of 50 beds in the retirement section and the other also to contain 50 beds in the nursing convalescent and infirmary section. While the home will be turned over to and run by the Franciscan Sisters it will be first of all a community project for Carroll and surrounding area, admissions to which will be from mem- \ bers ot all faiths and creeds. The sum of $850,000 will be need- 1 eel for construction of the home. To head up a campaign organization to raise the money the committee has appointed Dr. Leo II. Kuker,! as general chairman. Also selected 1 by the committee to serve as executive vice-chairmen are: William S. Farner. Hugh A. Matt and II. | C. Schogren. The campaigir. now in its organ- i i/alional phase will seek pledges to run over a period of the next 20 months. The advisory committee consists' of Joe Moinhardt. chairman, J.

Schogren Gasoline Tax to Be Increased By 1 Cent Oct. 1 WASHINGTON <AP• — Starling Oct 1, the federal gasoline tax goes up one cent, from three to four cents a gallon. It will help pay for the 41.000-mile interstate highway program. President Eisenhower signed the hill Monday, but said it did not meet his objective of keeping the highway program on a pay-as- you-go basis. Eisenhower said he signed it "in order to avoid a serious disruption of the highway program villi ils attendant adverse effects on state finances, highway contractors and workers and the economy generally." The increase is expected to I ring in a billion dollars from the nation's motorists before its scheduled expiration July 1. 1961. At that time the gas tax is to revert back to three cents a gallon.

Until early Tuesday morning there had been a sign on the marquee of the Fort Des Moines Hotel saying "Welcome, Iowa Cemetery Assn." Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev and his party are due at the hotel Tuesday afternoon. He has been irked several times thus far on his American visil by questions concerning a quote attributed to him that "we will bury you." New Sign The cemetery association convention closes Tuesday. Hotel officials said convention visitors were moving out of the hotel. So the officials put up a new sign. It says: "Welcome Russian Delegates ". U. S. State Department officials have passed out a request that nothing be done henceforth to irritate the Soviet premier. Nikita will be given the red carpet treatment when he enters the hotel—but so is every other visitor. The hotel's floors are covered with the stuff. Some of the newsmen converg- Khrusehev . . .

Garst said a good American salesman ought to find it relatively easy to sell Khrushchev on an arms inspection plan. Capable Salesman Garst is known in these parts as a capable salesman. He said he "has a few ideas" on subjects other than corn and cattle and hopes to have the opportunity to mention them to Khrushchev. Garst said Khrushchev already has considerable knowledge of new techniques in increasing corn production. "He will know about as much about what I'm saying as most of the farmers around here," Garst said. Garst, a big-bodied man not unlike Khrushchev in build and manner, snapped "utterly ridiculous," when asked if his business had suffered since the Communist leader accepted his invitation to visit the farm. Business Good "It's going up," he said. "And nobody refused the invitation to meet him here. There were more farmers and people in Des Moines who wanted to come than I could handle." Unimpressed with protocol and formal arrangements, Garst said he didn't like the schedule as laid out for Khrushchev—and has proceeded to change it. "In the first place, the men and women weren't segregated," he said. "The women don't want to go looking at cattle and corn. So we've changed that. They're going to see a food locker and a laundromat, and then the family's general store. "Also, I told Khrushchev's people too little time had been allotted for all he should see. We've saved about an hour by eliminating one of the stops they had on the lis!. Real Farmers "I want him to have time to meet as many real Iowa farmers as possible. He says the State Department hasn't let him come in contact with plain Americans. 1 think it's important that he does here on the farm." Garst said he was not worried that pointed questions—of the type that have irked Khrushchev — would be raised at the farm. "Now if you're trying to sell a guy something, you don't irritate Keeping Up With Khrushchev By The Associated Press Premier Khrushchev's schedule for Wednesday: 9:20 a.m. (CST): Visits Pioneer Hybrid Corn Co. at Johnston, Iowa, near Des Moines. 11:30 a.m. -3 p.m.: Lunches with Mr. and Mrs. Roswell Garst and tours their farm. 4:30 p.m.; Visits Iowa State University at Ames. 7:15 p.m.: Departs from Des Moines by air for Pittsburgh. 11 p.m. (EDT): Arrives Pittsburgh. him by reminding him of the time he got drunk and fell down.
