Anti-Communists Drew Lots To Kill
Soviet Leaders Visiting in England
LONDON (I')-High British officials said yesterday anti-Commu-
nists had plotted to assassinate Russian Prime Minister Bulganin and
Soviet party boss Nikita Khrushchev during their just-concluded 10-
day visit to Britain.
London newspapers, the first to break the story, gave it wide
play. One account said a secret anti-Communist band drew lots one
night to choose a single man
would have rocked the world.

Republican spokesmen in 'Minne-

tics" in exploiting a statement he
said he never made.

from Boston University express-

remarks at an April 16 panel dis-

"I said I hope that will not-

not-happen, even though such a
tragedy might teach a lesson both
to this administration and to city
people who show little concern
with agricultural," Humphrey said
in a statement.
He added that the word "not"
had been dropped from some ac-
counts of his remarks.

partment put out a release on what
Dean Duncan said were "off the

as saying "if there is a drought in

Farm Bill Veto Called
New Republican Victory
WASHINGTON (M)-President Dwight D. Eisenhower appears to
have out-maneuvered congressional Democrats who thought they had
him over a political barrel because of his farm bill veto.
In the nearly two weeks since the President's rejection of the
measure there have been few signs of the kind of farm belt rebellion
against the action that some Democrats were counting upon.
Republican Complaints Lessened
Similarly, Republican complaints against the veto have died to
a whisper in Congress. There is every indication of almost solid GOP

This, plus some Democratic
backing, may deliver to the Presi-
dent's desk in the next few weeks
a soil bank measure designed to
put some government checks in
the hands of farmers before they
go to the polls in November.
Democratic leaders have said
they won't go along with the Presi-
dent's advance payment plan.
Under it farmers who sign up to
take land out of cultivation would
get immediately 50 per cent of the
amount due them when they com-
ply fully with the contract.
Congressional Republicans are
convinced that in a showdown
many Democrats will hesitate be-
fore voting against a proposal
which would give farm income a
shot in the arm.
While the soil bank program
holds out some hopes for income
increases, Republicans are count-
ing politically also on rising farm
prices between now and election
These prices went up one per
cent between mid-March and mid-
April, continuing an upward trend
which began in December.
Sen. Aiken (R-Vt.) said he
thinks they will continue to rise.
He said that is one reason he be-

The House passed its bill by a
whopping 388-19 vote Friday 'and
sent it to the Senate, which has
passed a different bill.
The House measure calls for a

WASHINGTON (A)-Three Rus-
sian seamen, declaring they plan
to remain in this country, testi-
fied yesterday they thought "pres-
sure" caused five of their com-
panions to return to Russia.
"Somebody put pressure on
them," said Viktor Tatamikov,
adding "I am sorry. They will
perish. They will cut wood in the
slave labor camp.",!
The three seamen went before
the Senate Internal Security sub-
committee to tell their story only
a day after they had spurned di-
rect appeals from Soviet Ambas-
sador Georgi Zarubin that they
return to Russia.
Michael Ivankov - Nikolov, 35,
quoted Zarubin that "our families
were waiting for us, begging us to
come back and that all weuld be
"But the expression on his face
contrasted with everything he
said," Ivankov-Nikolov added.
Ben Ermenko, the third witness,
told a similar story. He said Zar-
ubin told him "my family is wait-
ing for me and the government
continues to pay them my salary."
A fourth seaman, Viktor Solov-
yev, had appeared previously be-
fore the subcommittee, which is
looking into Soviet activities in the
All were crewmen on the Soviet
tanker Tuapse, which was im-
pounded by Nationalist China in
1954. They and the five who re-
turned to Russia suddenly on April
7 had obtained political asylum in
this country last October.
The flight of the five, under con-
ditions which some have described
as "kidnaping," caused the United
States to expel two Soviet repre-
sentatives to the United Nations
on grounds they acted outside the
scope of their authority.
Since returning to Russia, the
five have told ijewsmen there they
acted voluntarily. But this was dis-
puted by the four who remained.

Clocks Advance Hour
In case anyone has forgotten,
clocks in areas converting to day-
light saving time, or "D.S.T." as
it will affectionately be known, will
turn their clocks one hour ahead.
The advantage to this lies in the
addition of one hour to summer
evenings. This extra sixty minutes
should be helpful to such things
as extra-inning baseball games.
To add to the confusion of this
time change, many areas have
shown their independence by start-
ing daylight saving time on some
date other than today.

Budget Bureau To Make
WASHINGTON (P)-The White House announced yesterday the
Budget Bureau is taking two of the steps recommended by the
Hoover Commission to put government on a more business-like basis
and reduce its cost to taxpayers.
The steps involvetan expansion of the Budget Bureau and efforts
to modernize the government's accounting system.
President Dwight D. Eisenhower and Budget Director Percival
F. Brundage also endorsed the Hoover Commission proposal that
appropriations be based on "accrued expenditures"-that is, that
Congress vote money on the basis of goods and services to be re-
ceived by departments and agen-
cies during the coming year.
There would be provisions for
supplementary authorizations and
1rlimitations as required.
Appropriations now are made in
terms of obligations, with amounts
appropriated serving as a limit on
goods and services to be ordered.
The two actions taken by the
: Budget Bureau itself were:
1. Enlargement of the bureau
by about 30 employes-subject to
Congress granting the $400,000
2. Establishment of a staff Of-
fice of Accounting, headed by Asst.
Director Percy Rappaport, to de-
velop an over-all accounting plan
