THE RACINE JOURNAL-TIMES VOL.^ 30, No. 16. RACINE, WIS., SUNDAY, AUGUST 9, 1959 66 PAGES—S SECTIONS—20 CENTS Ike Is Allowing for Possibility of Summit Parley WASHINGTON — (m — President Eisenhower is keeping his schedule flexible from October to January so he can attend any East-West summit meeting that may be arranged. There is an outside chance, he believes, that the long-debated conference of heads of state will come quickly after Soviet Premier Khrushchev's September visit here — and before Eisenhower pays his re turn visit to the Soviet Union. This may happen if his talks with Khrushchev here work out. Khrushchev arrives Sept. 15. But the odds are greatly against such an early summit meeting, the President believes. No Demands Eisenhower will not demand great concessions from the Reds for agreeing to a summit conference — long a goal of Khrushchev and of the British too — but he will want advance assurance that Moscow will do something toward peace. The President's current views on the summit, his exchange visit with Khrushchev, his forthcoming trip to Europe and other questions can be given authoritatively as follows: Khrushchev visit to the U.S.— Eisenhower probably will go beyond the protocol requirement toward a visiting government head by personally going put to Friendship Airport near Baltimore, to welcome Khrushchev on arrival. Khrushchev will have ful freedom to go anywhere he pleases. Won't Debate Eisenhower will not debate with Khrushchev in public, as Vice President Nixon did in Moscow. The President sees this as below the dignity o his office. Eisenhower's trip to the So Viet Union— The President wants to let some weeks go by after Khrushchev's visit before' he travels to the Soviet Union. He intends to let the situation jell and to tell the Western Allies about his Washington talks with Khrushchev. Eisenhower's Soviet trip will probably last five to six days, although the Soviets spoke of 12 days. ITALIAN LEADERS ACCEPT IKE'S OFFER ROME — m — Premier Antonio Segni and Foreign Minister Giuseppe Pella have accepted President Eisenhower's invitation to meet him in Paris, the Foreign Ministry announced Saturday, The meeting probably will be Sept. 3 or 4. Italy had asked for a top level meeting of the NATO Council so other Western chiefs of state could discuss with Eisenhower his forthcom- ng talks with Soviet Premier Khrushchev. Bride, 16, Slays Husband in Bar HOUSTON, Texas—(/P)—A 16 - year - old bride shot and killed her tavern-keeper husband Saturday "because he was going to leave me," she said. Jackwel Collier, married in June to Robert Collier, 21, wept after the slaying. "I wanted him to stay," she told police. The shootinf; took place at Collier's tavern. Racine County Fair Entering Final Day The Best from American Heritage * •«, * • • Wilsons League: a Sfillbom Dream of Patient Cop 31,000 Alibis Pour Into Ears EDITOR'S NOTE: Only a quarter century before America took a major part in forming the United Nations in 1945, this country turned its back on the League of Nations. Now, on the 40th anniversary of President Wilson's stubborn but unsuccessful fight for the League, a noted historian gives us an incisive account of what happened. By Thomas A.

From his stiff - backed Scotch - Presbyterian forebears, he inherited a high degree of inflexibility. And from his father, a dedicated Presbyterian minister, he learned a stern moral code that would tolerate no compromise with wrong, as defined by Woodrow Wilson.

The noblest expression of Wilson's idealism was his Four- SAN ANTONIO, Texas—(/P) —A small tornado tore (hroiigh the northwest side of San Antonio Saturday, causing considerable damage. There was no report of injuries. The tornado tore out 500 feetj of a 12-foot fence at a drive- in theater, also damaging nearby buildings. A large portion of northwest San Antonio was without electric service for more than an hour. Flash flooding occurred on several streets. By Wally Buttcrworth Patrolman Robert Schrocder is a listener. He has to he a listener in his job working behind the main floor counter at the police station. Here he meets the majority of persons who go to the station to pay traffic and parking fines. An unusually even-tempered man, Schroeder last year issued about half of the 31,000 receipts for money paid in fines. And with every receipt there's a story or an e.\cu.'.e or a scowl or a few heated words from the errant motorists. He's Heard 'Em All "I've probably heard every conceivable excuse and been called every name in the book on this job," says Schroeder. Chances are he's never heard himself called too many names, however, because Schroeder stands well over si.x feet and carries the going weight of a football lineman. Always ready to calmly explain an ordinance, listen to an excuse to see if it's valid, or put up with a ruffled motorist, Schroeder sat down last week and recounted some of his experiences behind the counter. Several weeks ago, a young mother dragging two youngsters who could hardly walk, marched into the station to pay a $3 overnight parking ticket. "I could tell she was mad the! minute 1 saw her," Schroeder relates. She Told Him Off He was sure of it when, in no uncertain terms, she told him what she thought of the city, its policemen and its traffic laws. . .(miriiiil-Tliiifii I 'tiolo In being named champion of the tractor operators contest held at the county fair Saturday afternoon, James Wilk.s, Yorkvillc 4-H member, won the opportunity to represent Racine County in the state 4-H contest at Madison in July, I960.

Report Big 3 OK's Major Concession to Pave Way for Disarmament Talks PARIS —(/I')— The United States, Britain and France have agreed in principle to a major concession to Russia in an effort to clear the way for East- West negotiations on disarmament, it was reported Saturday.

I Scientists were delighted, [riie extended orbit provided a jljonus factor, they said. 1 New calculations by the I Space Agency showed that Explorer VI was whirling out 26,400 miles ftom the earth, then swinging down to within 157 miles at the low point. Initial estimates on the max- linuim and minimum altitudes were 2:<.000 and 160 miles. The satellite was performing I in top-notch form as it orbited the earth in 12 hours, 45 min utes. That's six times longer than the orbit time for any U, S. satellite launched so far.
