"The conffict today/is not between East and West, but between

Rep. Chester Bowles (D-Conn.) yesterday told the audience at
"Modern Man Looks Forward" lecture, "The Future of the East-

Bowles suggested,- "We're go-.

that the conflict, such as it is,

priority attention to traffic prob-

the downtown area.
Mayor Creal also said that the
State Highway Department should
tell the city of current plans for

GENEVA () - The Western
powers told Soviet Foreign Min-

day they will never accept Rus-
sia's terms for a Berlin truce.
They pressed him once again to
get down to fruitful talk.
By this the West means nego-
tiation on a stopgap Berlin settle-
ment. Gromyko has been insist-
ing a Berlin standstill must be
tied in with reunification talks
between the two Germanys.
Gromyko said he was perfectly
willing to talk about a Berlin

Britain's Selwyn Lloyd took the,

"I say," he told Gromyko, "that
there is an interim agreement for
Berlin sketched out for us. And I
believe that it should be possible
here or at some other meeting,
perhaps at another level, to get
final acceptance of this interim
Explaining that remark, a Brit-
ish spokesman said Lloyd meant
that "final acceptance could come
here or at the summit."
Invite Summit
The British thus appeared to be
opening the door to a meeting of
heads of government. They were
inviting Gromyko to enter. And
they held out the bait that the
West would agree on some kind of.
Pan-German talks. Lloyd put it
this way:
"Our formula permits of any
combination or permutation of
the delegations here in this room
today (including both Germanys)
to meet from time to time for
purposes which could be defined

Report Says
Foreign Aid
battled foreign aid program was
pictured in a House committee re-
port yesterday as shot through
with waste and mismanagement
due to "loose, lax administration."
In a counter report, a White
House study committee said the
economic aid programs "must be
continued and better administered,
not emasculated or abandoned."
The two reports were released as
Congress sent to President Dwight
D. Eisenhower a compromise bill

Subcommittee Report
The critical report on waste and
mismanagement came from a
House appropriations subcommit-
tee which will get first crack at
drafting the money bill. The sub-
committee is headed by Rep. Otto
Passman (D-La), a long time foe
of large scale aid.
Passman has talked of cutting
this year's aid program another
half billion dollars below the $3,-
556,200,000 authorized, which in
itself is $353,200,000 less than
President Eisenhower said' was
Aid Must Continue
The White House Study Com-
mittee, headed by William H.
Draper, former ambassador to
NATO and former assistant secre-
tary of the Army, said many forms
of economic aid must continue as
long as the Communist. military-
economic-political menace exists.
It proposed that a new govern-
ment agency be created outside the
State Department t, administer
the major economic assistance pro-
gram. The trouble now, it said, is
that these activities are scattered
among a number of agencies.
The Draper Committee report,
which Eisenhower asked Congress
to study, recommended a more
selective choosing of nations and
projects for United States aid.

At almost the same time,

He suggested Nixon come see a

Nixon will meet Khrushchev for
the first time in the Kremlin to-

he hopes to have frank discus-

What aroused Kremlin wrath
was President Dwight D. Eisen-
hower's proclamation of this week
as "Captive Nations Week"'in the

In line with a Congressional.
resolution, Americans were urged
to conduct ceremonies in memory
of nations "made captive by the
