n Western States


By The Associated Press
Presidential candidates Sen.
John F. Kennedy and Vice-Presi-
dent Richard M. Nixon spoke yes-
terday during their western cam-
Troops Arrest,
Pair in Congo
Col. Joseph Mobutu arrested two
of Patrice Lumumba's most fana-
tical 'followers yesterday but still
hesitated to take direct action
against the deposed premier him-
Mobutu's men picked up An-
toine Gizenga, deputy premier in
Lumumba's government, as he left
the official residence where Lum-
umba is living under United Na-
tions protection.
Maurice Mpolo, Lumumba's
Minister of Youth and Sports; was
the second man arrested.
Army authorities said Gizenga
and Mpolo were arrested for plot-
ting against the regime of army
strongman Mobutu. They were
linked with demonstrations at
Camp Leopold II Thursday when
some soldiers twice gathered
around Mobutu's house to press
demands for increased pay.

Speaking in !Sioux Falls, S.D.,
Nixon proposed a six-point farm
program "with a heart." He said
it should give farm families "a
real chance to move confidently
ahead in prosperity and free-
The Republican presidential
nominee sketched in the general
outlines of his ideas for using such
implements as a temporary but
substantial increase in voluntary
land retirement and a long term
system of price supports.
In Denver, Kennedy angrily re-
buked Nixon for his campaign
tactics, declaring that "personal
attacks and Insults" will not halt
communism-nor win the Novem-
ber election.
The Democratic presidential
candidate asserted that the dan-
ger to the country lies in hiding
its shortcomings and perils rath-
er than in "speaking up for a
stronger America."
"It is not naive to call for in-
creased strength," Kennedy said.
Kennedy told Denver he is stak-
ing his candidacy entirely on his
belief that Americans are "un-
easy at the present drift in our
national course-that they are
disturbed by the relative decline
in our vitality and prestige," and
want new leadership to do some-
thing about it.
Nixon urged full mobilization
of the existing rural development
program to help small, noncom-
mercial farmers banish poverty
and lack of opportunity.
In the second major farm
speech of his campaign, the Vice-
President did not say how many
additional acres should be pulled
out of production or at what level
he would support prices.

From U.S.
Wadsworth Replies
To Soviet Premier
Premier Nikita S. Khrushchev
staggered the United Nations yes-
terday with a speech proposing to
rip apart the world organization's
machinery and move it out of
the United States.
He suggested that the Secre-
tary-General's office be eliminat-
ed and a board of three members
-one Western, one Communist
and one neutral-be set up in-
stead. This proposal came in the
wake of a Soviet diplomatic de-
deat in the Congo and a Russian
assault on Secretary-General Dag
Makes Reply
U n i t e d States Ambassador
James J. Wadsworth demanded
the Assembly stage to make a
formal reply to Khrushchev. He
told a hushed Assembly the UN
must "face this crisis head on."
"If it cannot, it will fail," Wads-
worth said, to resounding ap-
Herter called on Hammarskjold
personally in his office to discuss
possibilities of an Assembly reso-
lution expressing renewed and full
confidence in the Secretary-Gen-
Britain denounced the Khrush-
chev speech as reflecting a desire
to "undermine the United Na-
tions." A spokesman said "a dec-
laration of war on the Secretary
General is a declaration of war
on United Nations concepts.
Proposes Independence
Khrushchev's surprise packages
Included a proposal for immedi-
ate and complete independence
for all colonial areas of the
world. He proposed a three-stage
disarmament program, most of it
spurporting to aim at universal
disarming. He also renewed his
bid for another summit confer-
ence-making it fairly clear he
wanted it after Eisenhower re-
Wadsworth told the Assembly:
"The United Nations is in a
crisis. It is a crisis, first, through
the effort of the Soviet Union to
turn the world's greatest body
into a propaganda forum to serve
the interests of Communist im-
Choose Invective
"The Soviet Union has, I am
sorry to say, chosen the path of
invective and falsehood instead of
the path of constructive progress
outlined in the speech of Presi-
dent Eisenhower."
Eisenhower urged all nations to
clear their most dangerous issues
with the United Nations.
Speech Called
'War on UN'
United States yesterday accused
Soviet Premier Nikita S. Khrush-
chev of declaring war on Secre-
tary-General Dag Hammarskold
and the United Nations.
That "was Secretary of State
Christian A. Herter's indignant
reaction to Khrushchev's propos-
als in the United Nations Gen-
eral Assembly to do away with
Hammarskjold's job and move the
United Nations itself outside New
York City.
Herter Indicated the United
States would counter Khrush-
chev's move with a demand that
the General Assembly give a vote
of confidence to Hammarskjold.

Western Allies
Set Meeting
Of Ministers
Western Big Three foreign mn-
isters set up -a private meeting
last night in the wake of Soviet
Premier Nikita S. Khrushchev's,
stiff speech to the United NationsI
General Assembly.
A United States source said
Secretary of State Christian A.
Herter had invited British For-
eign Secretary Lord Home and
French Foreign Minister Maurice
Couve de Murville to dine with
him. The spokesman said the
three would discuss problems of
mutual concern.
"It's an opportunity to get them
together. They'll cover the water-
front. It's done now because all
of them are in New York at the
same time."
