WASHINGTON (P) - President
Dwight D. Eisenhower and Pre-
mier Nikita S. Khrushchev appear
to be in a contest to see who can
travel farther and see less than
any tourist in history. -
As you know, Mr. K. whipped
around this country so rapidly he
saw next to nothing.
President Eisenhower set off

it takes him into some of history's
most exciting spots, it will give
him little time to look around.
The trip is being run off so
rapidly that White House assist-
ants are said to be getting note-
books together for each stop so
the President can hastily bone up
on what he's likely to see and
whom he's likely to meet.
But you can guess that these
notebooks will be pretty stuffy.
Let's run over a few notes of our
own on the places Eisenhower has
Take Italy. In ancient days the
barbarians came to visit Italy, and
it has been a popular tourist spot
ever since. Eisenhower will be the
umpteenth million tourist to visit
that lovely land this year.
The early Romans gave us law,
and the modernf Romans have
solved a problem that still baffles
us: what to do with presidents
once they've served their term
when the president of the Italian
republic finishes his term, he be-
comes a Senator for life. It's not
clear whether this is intended as
a reward or a punishment.
Or take Turkey, tossed pell-
mell into modern civilization. As
recently as 1934 Turkey passed a
law that made it obligatory for
everyone to have a family name.
If Eisenhower wants to make
chitchat, he can mention that he
can go along with their constitu-
tion on 'Laicism' (separation of
church and state), but has some
reservations on 'etatism' (a type

The Navy and the Air Force
yesterday announced advances in
missile firing and rocket research.
At Cape Canaveral, a Polaris
missile streaked 900 miles to an
Atlantic target, marking the sec-
ond straight success for this po-
tentially deadly submarine weapon.
The Navy announced shortly
after the flight that preliminary
data indicated the rocket achieved
The announcement said one of
the primary goals was to gather
data on the performance of the
guidance mechanism. A guidance
system was aboard the missile, but
was not used to direct it. This will
be done on later tests.
Announces New Rocket
The Air Force announced from
Andrews Air Force Base, Md., a
new type of research rocket-the
1,700-pound, 29 foot long Jaguar.
The device is designed to be
launched 500 to 600 miles into the
sky from a jet bomber during a
straight up climb at high altitude.
The rocket will be used for prob-
ing the upper atmosphere over
remote parts of the earth where it
is impractical to establish launch-
ing sites on the ground.
It will serve for measurements
of northern lights and other
auroral and corona discharges, of
the behavior of trapped radiation.
Bombers To Launch
The air research and develop-
ment command said the rockets
will be launched from the twin-
engined B-57 jet bomber.
The program already has started
with dummp drops over the White
Sands missile range.
The Jaguar consists of three
stages of solid propellant rockets,
and is designed to send up a 35-
pound instrumented payload.
Live firings are expected to be-
gin next month at the air proving

Jaguar-2 is made up of a first
stage composed of a cluster of
three Thiokol Recruit motors, a
second stage with a single Recruit
motor, and the third stage with a
single one-fifth scale Sergeant
motor. It is designed for 500-mile
Jaguar-3 will have the same first
and last stages, but its second
stage will be a single Thiokol im-
proved Recruit called Yardbird.
It is expected to reach 600 miles.
NEW YORK (M) - Democratic
war chiefs, warming up for 1960,
have launched a broad attack on
the economic and fiscal policies
of the Eisenhower Administration.
The Democratic Advisory Coun-
cil also fired a salvo Sunday
against the Republican record on
issues ranging from foreign policy
to national defense and the race
for outer space.
A 10,000-word blueprint for next
year's Democratic platform de-
"The Republicans have done a
second-rate, second-best job that
could cost us more in freedom and
national security than can possibly
be measured in money."
Charging that the Administra-
tion has "failed miserably to keep
the government's financial house
in order," the statement went on
to criticize Republicans for lack
NEW YORK (-)-Former Presi-
dent Harry S. Truman hit sharply
last night at "self - appointed
guardians of liberal thinking" in
the Democratic party.
Truman called them "snobs.. ..
hot-house liberals" who have hurt
the cause of genuine liberalism
and who in many instances have
"paved the way for reaction."
"The fact that this or that lead-
er of the Democratic Party does
not represent some particular
shade of liberal thinking or doc-
trine should not expose them to
abuse or criticism," Truman said
in a prepared address.
He spoke at a party fund-rais-
ing dinneraddressed also by seven
Democratic presidential nomina-
Giving no hint of whom he
favors, Truman said there were at
least six others "who are entitled
to be listed with these seven as
worthy of attention and considera-
tion." He did not identify them.
The dinner, climaxing weekend
meetings here of the Democratic
advisory council, was held in honor
of Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt's
In an effort to show no par-
tiality in introducing the seven
presidential possibilities, Truman
presented them on a basis of "West
to East," according to the geo-
graphical position of their states.
They were Gov. Edmund G.
Brown of Calif., Sen. Hubert H.
Humphrey of Minn., Sen. Stuart
Symington of Mo., former Gov.
Adlai E. Stevenson of Ill., the
Democratic nominee in the two
previous elections; Gov. G. Men-
nen Williams of Mich., Gov. Robert
B. Meyner of New Jersey, and Sen.
John F. Kennedy of Mass.
Truman told newsmen prior to
the address that none of the seven
was in the category of librals he
GM To Recall
By The Associated Press
DETROIT-General Motors built
some Cadillacs, Chevrolets and
Corvairs yesterday-its first auto
production in almost four weeks.
The remaining GM divisions will
resume car building Wednesday
and by Friday all but 31,000 of the
215,000 workers who were laid off
will have been recalled. Some
60,000 will be going back to work
General . Motors was forced to
shut down when it ran out of
steel because of a nationwide
strike of steelmakers. It took 30
days work by the steel companies
to fill the supply lines enough to
allow auto production to resume.
A Taft-Hartley injunction tem-
porarily, at least, ending the steel
strike has another 50 days to run.
Meanwhile, steel mills have
scheduled operations to produce
this week the largest tonnage of
steel on record, the American Iron
and Steel Institute said yesterday.

The platform outline, hammered
out during a three-day political
whirl also called for federal aid to
education, a stronger civil rights
program, a 30 per cent hike in
Social Security benefits and a 25

Additionally, the statement
urged increased presidential pow-
ers to deal with "national-interest"
strikes and federal action to push
both water conservation and the
production of electric power.
Nineteen of the 22 chapters of
the blueprint dealt with domestic
foreign policy and three with for-
eign relations. And there were
signs that producing the docu-
ment was not accomplished with-
out some internal party rumblings.
The civil rights and aid to edu-
cation recommendations drew dis-
sents from Gov. Leroy Collins of
Florida and a national committee-
woman from North Carolina, Mrs.
Benjamin Bryan Everett. A num-
ber of other southern members
were absent and did not vote.
The final statements on GOP
foreign policy, while highly criti-
cal, were rewritten to tone down
what some members considered
too-harsh criticism advocated by
former Secretary of State Dean
Taking note of the President's
current world tour, the statement
said that he had the hopes of all
Americans for success, but added
that such tours were no substitute
for solid programs anl policies.
