Honeymooners Emerge from Bomb Shelter Nixon, Nikita Talk Peace at Dinner MIAMI, Fla.--(i?')—Miami's bomb shelter honeymooners emerged from their bower 12 feet underground Saturday blinking like owls at the suft- shine they had not seen for two weeks. Mr. and Mrs. Melvin Minin- son were married July 12 9 few minutes before they climbed down a steep ladder into the white cement enclosure 7 by 13 by 6>/2 feet. The honeymoon was a promotion stunt for backyard bomb shelters. "The first week went by like a breeze," said 28-year-oId Mel. "The second week we counted the days and hours. We couldn't wait to get out." Mininson drew shouts as he climbed out of the shelter's hatchway. He had grown a mustache and a full set of whiskers while honeymooning 10 feet underground. Conserve Water Mininson explained he stopped shaving to conserve water in the tradition of life in a bomb refuge, Maria Mininson, 27, slim in white toreador pants and a black blouse, took a deep breath of the fresh air as she emerged and said "It's so nice and cool up here." Spectators baking in the July sun were surprised but reporters understood Maria's comment when they descended into the tiny chamber and spent a few minutes in the 90-degree temperature below. The couple reported their chief problem was a balky can opener. None of their equipment could be replaced once they started the experiment aimed at determining problems which might be encountered by actual refugees from an atomic blast. Mel displayed hands cut from struggles to open cans and said the pair frequently used scissors from their first aid kit to hack at the cans. "Anything Fresli" The two could hardly wait for their first meal above ground. "Anything nice and fresh and not out of a can," said black- haired Maria. "We're dying to go on our real honeymoon," she added. The "real" honeymoon will consist of a two-weeks trip to Mexico City and Acapulco, provided as a reward for sticking out the two weeks. The Mininsons had 25 gallons of water when they started but despite conserving it, they wound up with only a few drops left over. They bathed with rubbing alcohol and reused their dishwater. "The first day or two was exciting," Minninson said. "But after that it was a job. It was no fun." (Continued from Page 1) peace in the years ahead." Khrushchev, in his toast, noted that the U.S. has risen rapidly from the time it was a British colony. "The Soviet Union." he said, "is in the same process of becoming a strong nation. Now the Soviet Union has come up, but you do not recognize us as a match. The sooner you recognize this the better . . . the U.S.S.R. will be wealthy and surpass you. We, too, are carrying ice on our backs." Mrs. Khrushchev was among the 36 Russian guests at the embassy dinner in honor of Nixon. It was one of her rare public appearances. Nixon accepted an unexpected invitation from the Soviet premier to l)e an overnight guest at Khrushchev's dacha, or country house, before beginning extensive talks on cold war issues today. The vice president went to the dacha by auto immediately after the three-hour dinner. He was accompanied by Dr. Milton Eisenhower, the President's brother, and U.S. Ambassador Llewellyn Thompson. The vice president was loudly applauded by 5,000 Russians when he arrived for a handshaking tour of the Soviet ag- Legislature Approves 25% Wisconsin Surtax (Continued from Page !)• tax in 1960 to its present 20 per cent level. Compromise Building Plans Earlier, the Assembly gave overwhelming approval to two Senate bills incorporating the compromise building plan. The votes were 84-0 and 83-1. One bill would re-enact the building depreciation fund and appropriate an amount matching one per cent of the state's total building value, or more than $7|^ million. The other would give the building fund 20 per cent of the University of \yisconsin tuition fees and a third of State College tuition, or about $4 million. The 25 per cent surtax on incomes brings a balance to Nelson's first-year budget. The second year will be taken care of in the fall and will based on results of a pioneering tax impact study initiated by Nelson. Other Actions These other actions took place while lawmakers neared the end of the session: The Assembly approved Nelson's bill to keep billboards off the interstate highway system, ending a long and lusty con troversy. The Senate concurred in the Conservation Depart- ment's $27million budget for operations the next two years. The Senate confirmed the appointment of Leonard Bessman, Milwaukee attorney, to the Public Service Commission to succeed George P. Steinmetz, thus ending a long squabble that started when Nelson! named and the Senate twice rejected Milwaukee Alderman Matt Schimenz for the PSC post. Anti-Monopoly Program The governor's anti-monopoly program was virtually wiped out when the Senate, as expected, killed three of four bills the Assembly earlier passed. One resolution was adopted in the Senate that seemed agreeable to everyone. It asked Congress to find out why railroads are taking off so many passenger trains. And just to make sure legis lators and that segment of the public that is interested will have state problems to chew on for the next two years, it was recalled that a big package of subjects warf referred to the legislative council to work on from now until the 1961 session. ricultural and industrial exhibition Saturday. U. S. Exhibit Popular Meanwhile, the U. S. exhibition in Moscow got off to a booming start Saturday. The public crowded in so thickly that bottlenecks developed everywhere. Large crowds were held out side. The American kitchen and household equipment caught the eye of Russians. They filed up scores deep at every viewpoint around the exhibits. They looked at the kitchen utensils, the cakemaking, the dishes—and the shoes. The Russians extended their own trade fair almost within throwing distance of the American fair. But early reports said the American fair was drawing by far the biggest crowds. JCLAIMS CENSORSHIP GETTING WORSE MOSCOW—(/V>—A spokes- more popular in his appearances before Russian crowds. Herbert G. Klein. Nixon's official press representative, said; "It appears to me each day the crowds are more and more friendly to the vice president, and it also appears to be that the difficulties they (the Soviet authoritie.s) have given in dealing with us are increasing proportionately. "I don't know whether this is a coincidence or not." Slate TV Showings of Nixon-Nikita Wrangle man for Vice President Nixon said Saturday it appeared the Soviet government had clamped on new censorship restrictions because Nixon was getting 450 French Soldiers Slain, Say Algerians CAIRO——A communique released by the Algerian rebel information office today claimed 450 French soldiers were killed and 456 wounded in military operations against nationalist rebels in Algeria from July 15-21. The communique said 25 "colonialists" were killed by Algerian commandos and claimed 116 French combat vehicles were destroyed during the fighting. NEW Y0RK --(i1>)— The video tape recording of the sizzling exchange between Vice President Nixon and Soviet Premier Khrushchev was re- lea.scd Saturday night. A snarl of confusion that reached halfway around the world and apparently involved Slate Department efforts not to offend the Russians had first threatened to delay indefinitely the first American showing. Just exactly how it was all straightened out was not clear, but the three major network.s promptly scheduled the dramatic fnce-to-face wrangle on late Saturday news shows. NBC also wilt show the tape in color today at 5 p.m. Arrived by Plane The video tape recording arrived here by plane Saturday morning and was scheduled to hnvo been shown at various times Saturday and Sui\day by the ABC.

First came word from the State Department that American showing of the 16-minute color recording was to be held up until a copy could be made and sent to Moscow for simultaneous transmission over Soviet TV. That would require at least 0 day or two. Telephone Calls Then began a rash of telephone calls to Washington and Moscow to ascertain who issued the order and what prompted it. The results led to even further consternation. At lirst, the networks got the idea that Nixon himself was the originator and that the delay stemmed from an agreement with Khrushchev. Then the networks got through to Nixon and his aides, who expressed surprise over the situation. A CBS correspondent with Nixon informed his office here that the vice president disclaimed responsibility for the order.

The Cardinal, Archbishop of Toledo, also was quoted as say ng low-necked dresses and short-sleeved shirts should not be worn. Mixed Bathing He declared mixed bathing at beaches, pools and rivers con stitutes a state "very close to sin and scandal." He said in the ecclesiastica bulletin of the archbishopric that modern dancing," among which we can classify all those nvolving an embrace, are serious danger for christian morals because they are very close to a state of sin." Termed "Suggestions'* Noting that news dispatches two weeks ago quoted the Archbishop as laying down strict rules of morality, the Vatican newspaper commented "What the reports do not say is that the presumed (Arch bishop's) directions were noth ing else than suggestions for the cathecism of Sunday preaching to adults, published in this month's issue of the offi cial bulletin of the archbishop ric of Toledo. This preaching is within the framework of a driv^ for morality which was started earlier this year. ... "The drive for morality con ducted by bishops and clergy of Spain and other countries does not violate any freedom and even less human dignity In fact it is a substantial con tribution for the strengthenin; of th^ individual moral con science."
