Carroll Daily Times Herald Vol. 90—No. 226 Carroll, Iowa, Friday, September 25,1959 —Ten Pages Evening fa r as centa Pw Week 7e Copy Already Hod Expert Reports; Got Chance to Meet People- Doubt Khrushchev Learned Any New Farm Techniques On Coon Rapids Visit By HARRISON WEBER (Iowa Dally Press Writer) DES MOINES — A slang expression now being used in Iowa is P.K. — meaning post Khrushchev. Actually, this is just another way of saying it's all over but the shouting. The Russian chief of state, for the most part, received a cordial and friendly welcome during his two-day stay in Iowa. There were a few "go home" type placards in the crowds that filled the streets to get a glimpse of the pudgy soviet premier, but surpisingly there were no demonstrations. It is doubtful that Khrushchev discovered many new farmi n g techniques in either his visit to the Roswell Garst farm near Coon, Rapids or the swine nutrition research farm of Iowa State University at Ames. Russian agricultural experts have visited both places and had briefed the Russian boss on their findings. Also, it was a quick tour and much of the information was of a technical nature; this is especially true of the swine nutrition farm. Perhaps the real accomplishment of Mr. K's visit to Iowa was the opportunity for him to meet people in every walk of life, or as Bob Garst aptly described them —• folks. Every chance Nikita got he made the most of it and seemed to thoroughly enjoy talking with the American people. Painter is Mayor For example, on hand to greet Khrushchev at the Garst luncheon was Coon Rapids Mayor Cliff Bowman. Population of Coon Rapids is 1,760, and Garst had invited Bowman to show that a painter could be the mayor of a town. Incidentally, Bowman has painted the five- bedroom home of Garst several times. Bowman presented Mr. Khrushchev with two silver half dollars from the 1893 World's Fair. The Bowmans had received 15 such coins as a present on their 25th wedding anniversary. The coins are now priceless. Another man at the dinner table was Dale McCarty who is president of the Coon Rapids Chamber of Commerce. "My friend Bob Garst," McCarty commented in an interview, "has had more to do with promoting friendship between Russia and the United States than anyone 1 might mention," McCarty also said that the rest of the people in the United States "can learn something from the Iowa people about demoncracy." Practical Man Matt Barron, president of the Coon Rapids Rotary Club, said he believes Garst is the "champion of practical agriculture in this country" "Bob Garst is not a theorist, he is a very practical man," Barron added. Another guest on hand for the luncheon was Mrs. W. D. Davis of Milford, Utah, who is a niece of Bob Garst. When asked what she thought of Mr. Khrushchev's visit to the Garst farm, Mrs. Davis replied: "You can't wish the existence of Russia away, so we should learn to live with them, and we must first speak with them." Russian Phone Call One of the interesting sidelights of the Garst visit was a telephone call direct from Moscow to Georgi N. Bolshakov, a Russian newsman. The call was placed to Coon Rapids funeral director Max Huffman who also has an ambulance service. Huffman was standing by at the Garst farm with an ambulance in case any emergency arose when the call came in. Huffman was reached at the farm and the Russian got his telephone call. With several hundred newsmen swarming over the farm, and telephone lines tied up, this was quite an accomplishment. Undoubtedly some Coon Rapids businessmen were sadly disappointed over the small turnout of people. There had been some predictions that upwards of 50,000 people would jam the Coon Rapids area in order to get a peek at the Russian boss. Several businessmen had leased vacant lots to provide parking facilities at $1 a car. Only several thousand people turned out at Coon Rapids for the premier. Nowhere in Iowa, for security reasons, had arrangements been made to provide for spectators to gather in any large numbers to see Khrushchev. Mot of the poeple who enveloped the Garst farm were newsmen. Ames Turnout Largest Largest turnout in any single spot was at Ames where literally the whole Iowa State University body of 9,000 students plus was on hand to greet Mr. K. They gave him the most rousing reception that he received in Iowa. When Khrushchev boarded his jet airliner to leave Des Moines for Pittsburgh he appeared*very tired; the pace he set while in Iowa was a very grueling one. It might be consoling for Mr. Khrushchev to know that the capitalist reporters who followed his footsteps in Iowa also became tired — in fact downright bushed. Premier of Ceylon Shot By Assassin By DENZIL PEIRIS COLOMBO, Ceylon <AP> Prime Minister Solomon W.R.D, Bandaranaike was shot and criti eally wounded today by a gunman attired in the yellow robes of a Buddhist monk. Three bullets were removed. A medical source said the shots penetrated his liver and spleen. Four pints of blood were given him. Ceylon radio broadcast appeals for additional donors. The assassin, snot in me knee by a sentry as he sought to escape, also was hospitalized. There was no hint as to his motive. Bandaranaike appealed "to all to show compassion for this foolish man." Gov. Gen. Sir Oliver Goonetil- like declared a state of emergency in this Indian Ocean island. In a broadcast to the nation, he announced mobilization of the regular reserves and the volunteer forces of the army, navy and air force. He said he did so for the protection of the people. He reported that the Prime Minister's condition was termed by surgeons "satisfactory" but he could not be considered out of danger. Police said that between 9:30 a.m. and 9:45 a.m. two men in the robes of Buddhist monks called at the Prime Minister's house and asked to see him.

"We will know more after the WASHINGTON (AP) — Soviet discussions with the President," Premier Nikita Khrushchev said | ne added, today he thinks tensions between the United States and the Soviet Union will be lessened to some extent as a result of his visit to this country. Only hours ahead of the start of his fateful talks on cold war affairs with President Eisenhower on a Maryland mountain top, Khrushchev spoke riefly with newsmen at the entrance to the Soviet Embassy. Asked what he thinks is the outstanding difficulty that ought to be settled, Khrushchev chuckled and replied: "It would be better to ask that question of your President."

"I think I can assure you that the President will not freeze those funds," Stans said. "We have been working over the last two weeks with the Corps of Engineers and Bureau of Reclamation on an orderly program to start the projects that Congress has asked to be started, including the 67 new starts." There had been speculation that Eisenhower might order the withholding of funds for the 67 projects. The $1,185,093,000 bill is to finance work during the year ending June 30, 1960. "They will be started within the period between now and about next June 30," Stans said. He said there are a few projects on which engineering and other work has not progressed far enough to permit a construction start during the year. He did not list the projects. 'But that will not be the result of any holdback on the part of the administration," he said. One of the largest Iowa projects is the $1,113,000 Red Rock Reservoir on the Des Moines River between Des Moines and Ottumwa. D. M. Man Dies of Motorcyle Injuries DES MOINES (AP) - A Des Moines youth who was motorcy- clng with his father died at a hospital Thursday night of injuries suffered when his motorcycle went into a ditch and he was thrown against a utility pole. He was Norval Etter, 22. Hospital attendants said death resulted from skull, neck and chest fractures. Etter and his father, Arthur Etter, were motorcycling home when the accident occurred. over with aides the final details for their meeting. He was rsked first what ho thinks of his trip through this country. With Ambassador Mikhail Menshikov acting as interpreter, he replied: "Wonderful!" Then Khrushchev laughed and added in English, "Very well." Khrushchev, still a walking exhibit of energy despite his grueling nationwide tour and a late dinner session Thursday night, was up for breakfast at 8:25 a.m. at Blair House, the President's guest house. Then he went back up to the third floor to "work on some papers" as aides trooped into the mansion. A short block away and across the street, Eisenhower was in conference with Secretary of State Christian A. Herter, U. N. Ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge who accompanied Khrushchev on his cross-country tour, and Llewellyn Thompson, U. S. ambassador to Moscow. Earlier, the President had seen Gordon Gray, his special assistant on national security affairs. The White House said the brass tacks sessions on cold war sticking points would begin within an hour after the two national leaders reach the secluded site near Thurmont, Md. Helicopter Trip As the conferences continued, the White House announced that Eisenhower and his guest had decided to go by helicopter rather than by automobile to Camp David, Md., the presidential retreat in the Catoctin Mountains where they will meet until Sunday. The White House said Eisenhower asked Khrushchev to state his preference and the Premier chose a whirlybird. They planned to fly together, taking off from the White House grounds at 5:15 p.m. on the 45- minute trip of about 65 miles. Also assigned to their craft were two interpreters; James J. Rowley, chief of the White House Secret Service detail; a Soviet security man; and Capt. E. P. Aurand, Eisenhower's naval aide. Three more helicopters were ordered for other officials and security agents. Starting tonight, the visiting Communist chief and the President will try to persuade each other to shift government policy in the interest of peace. Khrushchev, newly returned from a remarkable and hectic tour of America, indicates he has not retreated an inch from his persistent accusation that U.S. policy created and preserved the cold war.

The satellite slows down at the top of its orbit, and its average speed for the complete circuit is 18,000 m.p.h.

The satellite is nicknamed for its radiating vanes that draw power from the sun for its radio Instruments.
