The bride is a graduate of Hampton high school and had been employed at Ellsworth Hospital, Iowa Falls. WASHINGTON MERRY-Go-ROUND MOSCOW - Flying from New York to Moscow you realize how close the world's two most powerful nations are to each other and how important it is for them to keep their peace machinery well lubricated. The pretty Air India hostess in silk sarong has hardly finished serving . luncheon" coffee after leaving London before 'you < are over the snow-rimmed airport of Moscow. Air India, incidentally, has beat Pan American and other U. S. airlines in flying the short cut from New York to India via Moscow, thereby saving four hours over the old Near East route, and making you realize that, in case of war, giant bombers could make the flight between England and the Soviet in less than three hours, missiles in afewminutes. In Moscow, people who had their city devastated by the Nazi bombs of the last war are still working to rebuild it. Moscow is a city in a hurry. Its people walk at almost breakneck speed. Even so, the building program is not moving fast enough. And one of the gripes against Nikita Khrushchev was that he was sending money to Egypt to build the Aswan Dam while thousands of Russian families lived in one- room apartments. People sit on benches in the parks in Moscow even in near- zero weather, and at first you wonder ~why. • 'Then you learn that families are crowded together in two or three rooms, so that to avoid your mother- in-law you have to go out and sit in the park. Or else she sits in the park to avoid her son-in-law. Even so, the Russians have accomplished wonders in housing. But what the average American doesn't realize is that the Russian people suffered terribly in the last war and will be building for another ten years or so before housing catches up with the demand. This is one reason the Russians don't want another war. - o —WHEAT DEFICIT-The people I saw in Moscow Get Your DEXALB Seed Corn EARLY! •^ -^ ^r ^— ..^(^ r . lM B,,m ir t«tr»n«JN»BH EUGENE HOOD, Algona, Iowa ROLAND BODi, Algona, Iowa.

MATTHIESEN, Fenton, Iowa seemed better dressed than in 1961, and they also have more food. No longer do you see long lines of people queueing up in the street to buy certain kinds of food. Oranges and lemons are scarce and expensive at this season of the year and so is flour. Bread is not. But the Russians will probably have to go into the world market to buy som<? wheat this year though nowhere near as m ich as in 1963. Party Secretary Brezhnev has just announced a huge, five-year farm program costing $78 billion to set up fertilizer plants and improve agriculture. But there is one thing neither communism nor capitalism can regulate the weather. And, regardless of fertilizer and the most modern farm methods, Russia's bitterly cold winters, short growing season in the north and arid summers in the south may maan that she will never be sure of feeding all her people. This could open the possibility of an econom?c partnership between the Anrni- can farmer who over-produces and the Soviet which under-produces. - o - —EAST-WEST TRADE-Many Russians are anxious for trade with the United States and interested in the commission appointed by President Johnson to examine the East-West trade. But in the present unfavorable atmosphere created by the bombing of North Viet Nam they are skeptical. The most outspoken and friendly Soviet leader I talked to was Madams Nina Popova, president of the Union of Soviet Friendship Societies. As a member of the Central Conrnittee, Mme. Popova ranks high and, unlike some others, is not afraid to speak frankly. She plans to come to the United States regardless of opposition from the anti-American faction inside the Kremlin, and also favors continued cultural exchange. Some others do not. They would shut off the students, professors, and scientists who 1 have been traveling between the two countries. "Our main wish is for mutual understanding," Mme. Popova told me. "This is a difficult time we pass through. Let us speak frankly. We have been put in a very difficult position by your actions in Viet Nam. "We would be most happy if President' Johnson 1 would strike out this! problem' bf Viet Nam. " If we can get rid of it, we can look forward to all sorts of friendly enterprises together." So spoke one of the most frank, friendly mombers of the Central Committee. - o - f —THE TOLL OF WAR-President Johnson has been handing out a disturbing document to members of Congress who are invited to the White House for private question - and - answer sessions. Prepared by the Defense Department, the document gives the grisly estimates of how many people would be killed in the opening salvos of a nuclear war with Russia. The figures are presented in chart form under the heading: "Population and industry destroyed in a strategic exchange." Under the word "Target" is written "Soviet Union." A broadside of 200 warheads, according to the figures, would kill 50,000,000 Russians and wipe out 65 per cent of their industrial capacity. A broadside of 800 warheads would kill 100,000,000 Russians and destroy 77 per cent of their industry. In a footnote, the document explains reassuringly: "These fatalities are associated with the force levels shown. They, of course, represent but a fraction of our total force." On the next page is an even more frightening statistic. Under the heading "U. S. fatalities from Soviet strike," the grim prediction is given that 100,000,000 to 150,000,000 Americans would be killed. A footnote explain* that the estimate "assume'' an early urban attack by the Soviets in 1970. The number of fatalities within this range would depend on the nature and character of the attack." The document declares that U. S. nuclear forces this year will have 935 intercontinental bombers, 854 intercontinental m;ssiles, and 416 sub-launched ballistic missilies, a superiority of 3 or 4 to 1. - o - —JINX PREVAILS-The most publicized office building in the world, the new Rayburn Building for House members, is still haunted by goofs in planning and construction. Tiber Creek, Captiol Hill's "We lay the eggs but he gets all the credit." underground waterway, recently flooded the subway where cars were being readied to shuttle Congressmen back and forth between the Capitol and the new building. And one of the cars gave mechanics an unexpected headache the other day when its engine broke loose from its moorings and almost fell out. Building workmen were caught sawing off the bottoms of the big brass doors leading to committee rooms. It developed the doors couldn't open or close, due to thick, wall-to-wall carpeting that had been laid without leaving clearance for the doors. - o •• — A BIG LAWSUIT— Harold Stassen, onetime governor of Minnesota and GOP candidate for President, is arguing a suit unique in postwar history - a claim against the Justice and Treasury Departments to block the disposal of $123,000,000 acquired from Nazi property seized in the United States. Stassen is suing on behalf of two former inmates of Nazi slave labor camps who were brutally treated by I. G. Farben, the giant cartel which owned an American subsidiary, General Aniline and Film, expropriated under the Alien Property Act. One Nazi victim, Wally Kel- berlne, was an inmate of two slave labor camps, Dachau and Buchenwald. The Nazis also killed her husband and seized her millinery store and a factory. The other victim, Lenka Berlin, lost all her property. Her brothers were killed and she was forced to work in slav« labor camps. Both have now become citizens of the United States, but they were not citizens at the time they were victimized, which njakes their case legally stronger, since an American citizen is not permitted to sue the U. S. Government. The plaintiffs and Gov. Stassen claim that the Justice Department, which under Bobby Kennedy had sold the assets of General Aniline and Film, has no right to turn part of the $123,000,000 back to Interhandel which previous attorney generals have found to be a Swiss cloaking operation for Farben. Bobby Kennedy, when Attorney General, claimed it was not. The case will be argued before U. S. District Judge William Jones, one of the ablest judges appointed by the Kennedy administration. - o - -GOLDWATERISM INSIDE corn's beginning to look as if the new reign at the Republican National Committee may turn out to be just as controversial as the old. Hay Bliss, the quietly competent new chairman, has appointed as staff manager Cincinnati attorney William Cody Kelly, who seems to be as wild a Westerner as his famous namesake. To the dismay of the Republican moderates, who thought they were getting rid of the Goldwater gang, Kelly is a red-hot Goldwaterite. He hustled convention delegates for Barry in Ohio before the 1964 convention. During the campaign, Kelly flew his own plane all over Ohio, scattering Goldwater leaflets like autumn leaves on small towns below. He made his political debut in 1953 on the Cincinnati city council. At that time, Harold Goldstein, a Democrat, charged that Kelly had made a bundle from inside information on a bus franchise. Kelly filed a $250,000 libel suit against Goldstein but never brought it to court. Unlike his two-gun namesake, "Buffalo Bill" Cody, Kelly also hired bodyguards to protect him during the campaign. On the city council, he raised a ruckus over the "New Deal" spending of the Democratic mem- bets. He even took out newspaper ads and distributed brochures, claiming he could cut city expenses by 10 to 15 per cent. He began to beat the guber- Connie's Column V*; BAKE SOME BASKETS Tisket-a-tasket... bake some rice baskets, and serve any creamy mixture inside.

Bet this will surprise you: 1 quick pouf natorial drums on a political barnstorming trip through Ohio. But while ho was away, the GOP councilmen appointed someone else as mayor. Kelly sulked ami refused to serve on thr finance committee, thus leaving it up to the Democrats to raise the appropriations to run the cit\. This caused dissension among the Republicans. Thereafter he dropped out of the headlines until he emerged last year as a Goldwater bandwagon master. GOP insiders have concluded that Rliss, who .juggles political appointments the way the royal families used to arrange marriages during tlic heyday of the European monarchies, must have chosen Kelh as a concession to Ohio Goldwatorites.
