Government Approves Majority
F of Parke, Davis Preventative
WASHINGTON (P)-The government authorized yesterday a par-
tial resumption of polio vaccinations.
After rechecking for safety, the Public Health Service approved 11
batches of Salk vaccine made by Parke, Davis Co. of Detroit.
This stamped the government's O.K. on all Parke, 'Davis & Co.
vaccine except that in the hands of Minnesota health authorities. The
Minnesota supply, officials said, presumably is all right, too. But its
approval is being held up until all the data is in hand.
All told, enough vaccine to inoculate more than 4,000,000 persons
was approved by yesterday's announcement.

so someone had to be unlucky.
Much to the regret of the Mich-

baseball team which was on the
wrdng end of the luck, as they
bowed to Michigan State, 3-0.
OSU in First
Meanwhile, Ohio State edged out
Minnesota, 4-3, to take a hair-
line possession of first place in
the Big Ten baseball standings.
OSU has a percentage of .714,
while Michigan and Minnesota, al-
though they are both a half game
ahead of the Buckeyes, trail with
percentages of .700.
The Michigan-MSC game, mark-
ed by good pitching and tough
breaks, was the Wolverines' third
conference loss of the season.

MOSCOW-The Soviet govern-
ment announced today Communist
party boss Nikita Khrushchev and
Premier Nilolal Bulganin are go-
ing to call on Yugoslav President
Marshal Tito in Belgrade late this
The meeting would be before
the expected "summit" confer-
ence of Bulganin, President Dwight

ister Anthony Eden and Premier
Edgar Faure of France.
Tito's independent Communist
nation has been estranged from
the Kremlin since his historio
break with the Soviet-directed
Cominform in 1948.
U.S. Declines Comment
The State Department in Wash-
ington said it had no comment
to make on the development. It
was learned, however, that the
Yugoslav government had advised
the United States yesterday of the
impending meeting and said it re-
flected no change in Yugoslavia's
policy of good and cordial rela-
tions with the West.
The announcement said Krush-
chev and Bulganin would go to
Belgradehwith other Soviet offi-
cials at the end of May.
Tn recent months, however,
there has been a new attitude, with
both sides seeking to "normalize"
relations. Tito-had never ceased
to insist that he would stick up
for his independence.
Improved Relations Hope
The announcement of the Soviet
trek to Belgrade said:
"With mutual desire with the
aim of further improvements in
relations between the two coun-
tries and with the aid of strength-
ening peace, the government of the
Soviet Union and the government
of Yugoslavia have decided to hold
