A Day Coon Rapids,Won't Soon Forget- World Communisms Boss Happy Over Iowa Reception By WILLIAM L. RYAN DES MOINES. Iowa (AP) — Iowa's corn belt farmers turned back to their normal placid lives today after a day with the human dynamo who bosses world communism: Nikita Khrushchev. Few of those who participated in that lively day were likely to forget it for a long time. The Soviet Premier took off Wednesday night, tired but still happy at his Iowa reception, for Pittsburgh and another round of strenuous touring. His personal physician. A. M. Markov, seemed unworricd by his charge's health, feeling that "when a man smiles, he is in good health." Apparently, said the doctor. American food agrees with the Premier.

He argued amiably with his host, farmer Roswcll Garst, about corn growing techniques, and even criticized corn prized by Garst, allowing that if he didn't, friend Garst might "have his nose too high in the air." He was pursued throughout the day by hordes of newsmen and photographers over the Iowa landscape, and jokingly tried to shoo them away by threatening to "turn the bulls loose" on them.

He wished the girls success, but added that "the main thing is to find a good husband." Khrushchev got a warm reception* at Ames, and his smiles reflected his pleasure at it. The students cheered him, and he broke through the cordon of his security guards to go to a railing and wave back at them. All in all, it had been a hectic day. full of confusion, from the time he left his hotel in Des Moines until he returned to it about nine hours later, barely with time enough to prepare for his departure to Pittsburgh for a tour of that industrial metropolis.

Russia, Too, Has'Capitalist 7 Farmers: N i ki ta COON RAPIDS (AP> -There are some Russians who operate under the profit system and Premier Nikita Khrushchev has no idea of changing it. There are farmers who produce on the collective farms, which are similar to co-operatives whose members share in the returns. Khrushchev, in reply to a newsman's question during the luncheon at the Garst farm Wednesday, said he does not plan to convert the collectives into state farms. The latter are state owned and the workers are paid wages. The premier was asked if the farm people prefer the collectives because they can earn more by producing more. Sensing the implication of private enterprise, Khrushchev said: "The rich collective farmers, the productive ones, who are making big incomes—thefPflon't want to become state farm workers. But the poor ones, the weaker ones, they would just as soon get a steady wage." Now Get the Most for Your TV Dollar!
