Miss Leemkuil. a junior in Denison High School, received her crown from Linda Thompson of Sac City, 1W5B queen, and was presented with gifts from the Chamber of Commerce hy Paul Crouse, chairman of the festival committee. Her coronation was the con- chiding event of the festival, following a short address hy Gov. Herschcl C. Loveless and a demonstration by the Scottish Highlanders of the State University of Iowa on Main Street west of the courthouse scuiare. Highlight of the day was a parade of 37 bands, including the SUI Highlanders and SAC Band from Offutt Air Force Base through city streets from 2 30 to 4 p.m. Big Crowd In spite of unfavorable weather, crowds lining the parade route were believed by city officials to be in excess of last year's estimate of 10,000. Many were visitors from out of town. Gov. Loveless in two speeches during the day. one at the coronation ceremony and the other at a luncheon in SS. Peter and Paul School, made references to the recent Khrushchev visit in Iowa. In his luncheon speech he said he was proud of the courteous reception and at the same time "lack of acceptance" of Khrushchev by the people of Iowa. At the coronation ceremony he greeted festival visitors saying: "This is a greeting 1 can extend with a smile and that wasn't quite true earlier in the week." Adds to Culture He spoke in praise of the festival declaring that "appreciation of music in schools adds much to the cultural development of our state."

By JOHN M. HIGHTOWER WASHINGTON (AP)—President Eisenhower said today of his talks with Premier Nikita S. Khrushchev that the threat to Berlin no longer exists and his personal conditions for holding a Summit conference have been met. But Eisenhower declined to say in so many words that the Soviet leader had given him personal assurances which amounted to lifting the Berlin threat. He replied to news conference questions on that point by saying he did not want to put words in anybody's mouth. New System Needed Eisenhower said he agreed with Khrushchev that the Berlm situation is abnormal — because of the existence of a group of free people inside Communist territory. He said that some system must be found which would be acceptable to both sides. He disclosed that in the course of the talks which he had with Khrushchev at Camp David, Md., from Friday night to Sunday afternoon, Khrushchev had said that in a friendly way he would take up with Chinese communist leaders the problem of five Americans still held prisoner in Chinese Communist jails. He aid they spent very little time talking about Communist China, however, because they immediately found that their views were totally opposed. The President began his unusual Monday morning news conference with glowing praise for the American people's treatment of Khrushchev. Americans Sophisticated He called them very sophisticated in being able to listen to the other fellow's arguments and criticism while remaining strong in their own conviction. Eisenhower spoke with a slight nasal stuffiness. He said he had come back from Europe with the beginning of a cold.

Interest Turns Toward Nikita's Visit to Peiping By LEWIS GULICK i WASHINGTON (API - Washing-! ton interest was swinging today \ toward Peiping where a familiar 1 figure—Nikita Khrushchev — is about to make an appearance. Five Killed in Weekend Smash -Ups By The Associated Press Kuc persons were killed in Iowa traffic accidents over the weekend. The latest death was that of Danii-I Davis, lii, of Des Moines who was killed when the stalled iar he was in was struck from behind. The Roosevelt High School junior was looking under the hood of the car Sunday night when it was struck by a car driven by George Stevenson, 20, an Iowa State University student.

It is especially so when the Soviet leader has just completed an historic trip to the United States, Red China's No. 1 hate in the cold war. Khrushchev, who only today returned to Moscow from the United States, is scheduled to leave Tuesday for Peiping. There Jias been little indication so far thai Khrushchev will make much of a public splash in Pei ping. To the contrary, there has' been a curious silence. The official purpose of Khrushchev's China journey is to attend the 10th anniversary celebration ci the Peiping regime Oct. 1. Alter the first few days of his U.S. tour, the Bed Chinese press has paid scant attention to Khrushchev's doing here. The Kremlin leader himself has made few references to his Asiatic ally despite China's prominence in cold war trouble spots. Soviet aides at his news conference Sunday selected for Khrushchev's reply none of a number of questions concerning Red China which were submitted by American newsmen.

Ike Calls for Global 'Soft' Loans Set-Up By FRANK CORMIER WASHINGTON iAP) - President Eisenhower today called for the creation of a billion-dollar international development association to extend easy-payment loans to underdeveloped nations. The association would be a subsidiary of the World Bank. Eisenhower made his suggestion in a brief address of welcome to the governoring boards of the bank and the International Monetary Fund opening their annual meeting here. He told the finance ministers of 68 nations: "In our view, no other mechanism can perform this task" for the free world as well as an international development association. The U.S. governor of the bank and fund, Secretary of the Treasury Robert B. Anderson, has formally proposed creating the association, a global lending institution. It would help shift part of the increasing burden of foreign aid to European and other countries. Eisenhower told the delegates the United States believes the new agency should be closely integrated with the World Bank—which makes only safe and conservative loans and is unable to provide "soft loans" to countries needing them. Soft loans provide for easy payments and are repayable at least in part in the currency of the borrower. Making Die association an affiliate of the World Bank, Eisenhower said, would give assurance of a wise expenditure of its funds and close coordination with other international economic agencies. The President said he is aware that developments in the American economy can have significant effects on the well-being of the rest of the world. "Hnppily," he went on. "our economy today, despite the increasingly heavy impact of the interruption in steel production, is in healthy condition." Hero's We Khrushchev /come for In Moscow MOSCOW (AP) — Nlkitn Khrushchev told the Russian people on his return today from the United States he believes President Eisenhower sincerely wants to liquidate the cold war and establish normal relations between our two countries." The Soviet Premier, in a speech broadcast from the Moscow Sports Palace, could hardly say enough nice things about Elsenhower, but he reported dark spots about his vis- No Injuries in 2 Auto Accidents Here No injuries were reported in two separate car accidents here Saturday, police said. Cars driven by Neil C. Stork, 19, Carroll, and M. H. Parker, 20, Ames, were in collision at the intersection of Ninth and Main streets about 3 p.m. Cars driven by Robert B. Riordan, 36, Carroll, and Paul J. Reinart, 18. Carroll, were involved in a collision in the parking lot near the Carroll Athletic Field about 10;20 p.m. Considerable vehicular damage was reported in both accidents, police said. 'How to Be a Pro'Told to Teachers Carrol) County teachers were assured at the opening session of their annual institute in the Carroll High School auditorium Monday morning that "learning can be fun". Dr. Ray Bryan of Iowa State University, Ames, keynote speaker of the morning session, told the 300 assembled teachers that learning is not necessarily hard. If it is well motivated and interesting, he said, learning is fun. Dr. Bryan's subject was "How To Be a Pro". He listed eight precepts which will make a teacher a pro; (1) development of a good philosphy of education; (2> knowledge of child growth and development: i31 knowledge of the psychology of learning; 14> selection and arrangement of subject matter; (5) evaluation of students; (6) management of students; (7) good teaching personality; and (8) good public relations. In discussing evaluation of students he said that present methods "make loafers out of brilliant youngsters and failures out of the less able". Ideally, he declared, evaluation should be based on three points — aptitude, achievement, and attitude. Big difficulties in the arrangement of subject matter, he said, are that most teachers try to teach too much, teach as if all subjects are equally important, and fail to arrange subject matter in big areas of understanding.

While in the Soviet Union, Vice President Ridiard M. Nixon said I he Soviet leader suffered horn misconceptions about the United States, which could be corrected by visiting us. Well, Khrushchev lias been here and gone. Did we change his mind at all'.' Indications are that we did, unless, of course, he never believed his own propaganda to begin with. Reporters on (he Khrushchev ' tour repeatedly asked him wheth- |cr his visit was altering bis own image ol America. Repeatedly. Khrushchev ducked a direct answer. But there were several indirect answers from the round, volatile Communist chief. In San Francisco, Khrushchev said — maybe he was merely being polite, but he said it — that he saw no difference between the American government and the .Mnericaii people in their desire for peace. For the last 14 years of the cold war, Communist propagandists have been saying thai Americans as a people waiii peace but the government is warlike. For years Pravda has been screaming that American business leaders and the "ruling classes'' bad to keep the cold war goiug because to end it would bring a' depression. 1 But alter meeting will) top businessmen in New York, Khrush- j chev conceded that the United, States could move from a war economy to a true peace economy j without economic disaster. Traditionally, the Moscow propaganda mill has insisted the American worker is oppressed, 1 exploited, underpaid, ill-fed, ill- housed and eternally afraid of sudden unemployment. But the Khrushchev we saw on this side of the Atlantic said the American worker's situation is "not a bad one at all." He remarked several times about American prosperity and our high standard of living. Bui any appraisal of America's impact on Khrushchev must bear this in mind: he evidently never intended for it to have any impact. He obviously came to talk, not see; to persuade, not learn. But if, as a result, anyone thought Khrushchev was about to turn in his Communist card, the master of the Kremlin disposed of that remote possibility in his farewell appearances in Washington. "Your country," he said, "has not changed my opinion that our political-social system is the fairest and most productive." Reporters who followed him from coast to coast concluded that you can tell Nikita Khrushchev anywhere but you cau't tell him much. INJURES KNEE James A. Heim, 10, son of Mr. and Mrs. Leo J. Heim of Auburn was brought to St. Anthony Hospital Saturday afternoon for treatment of a sprained "knee sustained while playing at school earlier in the week. He will be released from Ihe hospital Tuesday or Wednesday, according to his physician. It, too. Some angry faces were spotted on his tour, he said. He called for exposure and whipping of forces which he declared were working in the United States "against easing international tensions." By PRESTON GROVER MOSCOW (API—Nikita Khrushchev returned from his American visit today with a declaration that "those who are afraid of coexistence are unwitting tools in promoting the cold war." The Soviet Premier, given a hero's welcome, told a jampacked throng at the Moscow Sports Palace that the cold war might spark off another armed conflict. "Then it would be too late to ask questions about coexistence, when atom-bomb-carrying rockets started flying," he said. 10 !4-Hour Flight Smiling broadly Khrushchev called out "okay" to welcomers at Moscow Airport on his arrival after a 10-hour, • 28-minute flight from the United States. He spoke the word in English from the top of a ramp leading down from his plane in apparent summary of the results of his tour and talks with President Eisenhower. He was met by President Klementi Y. Voroshilov, Deputy Premier Anastas I. Mikoyan and many others in the government. Mrs. Khrushchev followed the Premier off the plane. Khrushchev looked very well. He showed no signs of strain from the flight and the strenuous two weeks which preceded it. Thousands cheered him and tossed, flowers into his car on his 30-mile drive from the airport to the Sports Palace. Beaming and looking well rested, Khrushchev waved hack. Reports Progress At the Sports Palace, before 15,000 or more, he assured the Soviet people that progress was made in lowering tensions. He said Eisenhower showed a statesmanlike mind in assessing the situation. The Premier came back with much credit in his own country. He went to the United S.tates hoping to get a joint statement with Eisenhower that war would be renounced as a means of solving international disputes. He got it. U wasn't important except for local and foreign propaganda purposes for this guarantee is in the United Nations Charter, to which both the Soviet Union and the United States subscribe. He didn't gel a nonaggression pact, but got an agreement to discuss disputes, a thing which was available without a trip but which can be converted into useful proof of the value of the trip and the strength of Soviet enterprise in foreign affairs. Western European nations before Khrushchev came to this country. Although Eisenhower spoke of his conditions for a summit meeting of various nations as haying been met, he wouldn't be pinned down as to prospects for one In the near future. At one point, the President said such matters were subject to negotiations with the allies, evidently meaning British Psime Minister Harold Macmillan, French President Charles de Gaulle and German Chancellor Konrad Adenauer. In official quarters here, the impression is strong that there will be a summit meeting before Eisenhower goes to Moscow in the spring—possibly in November or December. No Deadline* He also said with respect to lifting the Berlin threat that it was important to understand that in the negotiations on Berlin which are now to be reopened there is no fixed time, no deadline, although they cannot go on endlessly. As things now stand, no one is under duress, Eisenhower said and no one is under any kind of threat. Khrushchev, he added, stated emphatically that he never intended any kind of threat or ultimatum on Berlin. The President said the situation is abnormal and some way mutually agreeable must be found to make it more acceptable. The President refused to state whether American attitudes and principles would be the same in new negotiations. He could not make such a statement now, he said, because he does not know what kind of solution eventually will be acceptable. Better Understanding The President said he believes Khrushchev, as a result of his trip, has a better understanding of the American people, their attitudes on international matters' and their desire for peace. He recalled he had said that he hoped the Khrushchev trip might begin to melt the ice of the cold war. If any of this has been done. Eisenhower went on, it is due to the American people. He particularly praised the mayors and the governors who bore responsibility for receiving Khrushchev in different places over the country. Eisenhower was asked whether he thought some of the ice of the cold war did in fact melt. He replied that the most that could be done in the talks with Khrushchev was to make a beginning. Well in advance of his meeting with reporters Eisenhower was understood to have .dispatched accounts of his talks with Khrushchev to Prime Minister Harold Macmillan of Britain, .President Charles de Gaulle of France and German Chancellor Konrad Adenauer — all of whom he had consulted prior to Khrushchev's coming here. 2 Hours on TV Khrushchev spent two hours in front of the television cameras, discussing the talks, and extolling the achievements of Soviet communism. A few hours later he boarded his huge TU114 jet prop airliner at Andrews Air Force Base with his wife, children and aides and soared into the dark sky toward a hero's welcome in Moscow. Eight Received Into the Methodist Church Mr. and Mrs. Dean Morlan and daughters, Shari and Marianne, Mr. and Mrs - . Donald Zimmerman and Mr. md Mrs. Robert Griffith were received into the Carroll Methodist Church at the morning worship service Sunday. A service of dedication for Sunday School teachers and officers was held at the morning service in observance of Christian Education Week. Twin Brothers, 39, Die After Leading One Life A person should never buy anything for a song unless he knows what the pitch is. DUNKERQUE, France <AP> Jean and Yves Deinvanee were twin brothers who led one life. "You never suw one without the other," said a Dunkerque merchant who knew the family well. "Mrs. Delavance wanted them always to share their life. It was like she was raising one son instead of two." The twins were born 39 years ago. They went to school together, played games together and were inseparable They even managed to stay in the same work camp in Germany during World War II. When they returned to Dunkerque, their parents were dead. The brothers reopened the small family grocery store. Their identical gray sweaters and trousers became a familiar sight in the channel town. Their neighbors called them "the quiet men." Their relationship was almost [ broken five years ago when Yves fell in love with a girl from j Boulogne. But he did not many her. "To have real, happiness my brother and 1 ought to marry twin sisters." Yves said. "We are still children In need of each other. I will not marry because I do not want to leave my brother." Two weeks ago Yves fell ill and was taken to a hospital. He died there a few days later. His grief- 'stricken brother was at his bedside holding his hand. On the day of the funeral, Jean entered the hospital. Doctors couid find nothing organically wrong with him, but a week later he died. "It's ^very strange, but apparently he* could not live without his brother. I guess you would have o say he died of sorrow," »aid the doctor.
