If Mr. Taylor were lo criticize the people for not spending more money on the chamber of commerce, instead of criticizing the chamber for barely existing, he'd be pretty close to the truth. l«\,Hope is not exactly promotion- minded. Too few of our people see the community in the same light as three presumably are in they see an individual business problem — they spend money to promote their own business, but they don't figure much of a percentage for promoting the town as a whole.

RYAB AP FTOREIGN New* Analyst Communist parties and governments of the European satellites countries have just ilnhhed whipping themselves Into the pattern dictated by Moscow. The result throws new light on KrcnJin leadership itself. The pattern adopted by the satellites, always obedient to Moscow, hints that there has been •> quiet showdown inside the Kremlin. There is new evidence that Nikita S. Khrushchev, first secretary, of the Soviet Communist party, wields Ihe real power, not Premier Georgi Malcnkov. Moscow laid down the new pattern last September, when the Soviet regime appeared to have regained its balance after the violent purge of Secret Police Chief Lavrenty Berin and his followers. Then Khrushchey became "first.-secretary" of the Soviet party, a job which, according to the Soviet press, Malcnkov voluntarily relinquished. The'party chairmanship is a job of great power.
