By Nixon
WASHINGTON (A") - President
Dwight D. Eisenhower said yester-
day Vice - President Richard M.
Nixon has every right to talk over
with Nikita Khrushchev the pos-
sibility of visiting this country, but
has no authority to invite him
President Eisenhower said Nix-
on, now visiting Russia himself,
has every right to listen and con-
verse and discuss such a visit with
the Russian premier.
Thus the President appeared to
confirm at a news conference that
Nixon has talked with the Soviet
leader about coming to the United
States sometime.
No Encouragement
But it is President Eisenhower
who will determine when and
whether an invitation will be is-
The President did little to en-
courage a Khrushchev visit at this
Yet he is known to feel that at
the proper time and under the
right conditions a personal meet-
ing between himself and the So-
viet Premier might be desirable.
Good Ideas
President Eisenhower regards
Khrushchev as shrewd but not
wise, as erratic but not reckless or
And he thinks it would be a
splendid idea if Khrushchev and
other top Soviet officials could
come to this country sometime to
see what this nation has, how the
people live and how much the
United States has to fight for if
The news conference yesterday
skipped around the world-to Rus-
sia, Hawaii, the Far East, Latin
America-and dealt as well with
domestic affairs.
Starts Conference
The President started the con-
ference by voicing gratification
that persons of Chinese, Japanese
and Hawaiian ancestry were vic-
tors in Tuesday's election in Ha-
With a grin he added that he
wasn't unhappy that the Republi-
cans picked off the governorship
and one of two United States Sen-
ate seats.

Porter (R-Blissfield), committee
chairman, said the bill was sent
to the floor at this time for pro-
cedural reasons.
The airport bill, also approved
by Porter's group, carried $1,153,-
000 in state funds to help finance
projects at 21 airports. Of the
total, $728,000 will come from fed-
eral grants.
Last year, the Legislature pro-
vided only $781,000 for airport
work, all of it from the state aero-
nautics fund fed by aviation fuel
tax receipts.

it would build a $750,000 to $800,-

Construction of the center,
which will be partly dedicated to
the discovery and use of, nuclear
fuels and exotic metals, will begin
the first week in August.
Andrew M. Mras, president of
American Metal Products, said
"The great potential in missile

The heckling began yesterday
morning at Novosibirsk, 900 miles
east of here, where the Vice-Presi-
dent's Soviet tour had brought
several examples of warm contact
with the Soviet people Tuesday.
Flying yesterday to this boom-
ing center in the Eastern Urals,
noted for its heavy industry and
armament mills, Nixon found a
big-but silent-crowd.

Nixon, whose patience had worn
thin after answering seemingly

debate by shaking hands with the

He went on to visit other parts

on Tax Plan
Seen by'Beadle
Senate Majority Leader Frank
D. Beadle,(R-St. Clair) yesterday
predicted the Legislature would
reach a compromise solution to the
state's tax crisis "by the end of
next week."
Interviewed following a panel
talk at a University of Michigan
Institute in Practical Partisan
Politics, Beadle admitted he was
"more optimistic" than his col-
leagues on prospects for an early
end to the record-breaking legis-
lative session.
He said hewas "hopeful" that
any use (sales) tax included in
a compromise plan would be found
constitutional by the Supreme

Should the Court reject a use
tax increase on this ground, Beadle
said he was inclined to favor
"wiping the slate clean and start-
ing all over" to build a new tax

tion to a state constitutional con-

Cited in Talk
By Schwartz
The Twentieth Century is,not
going to be the "American Cen-
tury," because of a "catastrophic"
shift in world power to the Soviet
Union, New York Times corres-
pondent Harry Schwartz warned
However, Schwartz pointed out
"weaknesses as well as strengths"
in Russia's political' and econonic
programs which may help miti-
gate the threat.
He noted a "fantastic economic
recovery" in the Soviet Union
since World War II, particularly
in the steel, electric, and petro-
leum industries.
Will Grow Stronger
Barring an unforeseen reversal,
Schwartz said, the Soviets will
be economically stronger with
each year."
Coupled with the development
of satellites and missiles, Russia's
"tremendous economic growth"
gives Premier Nikita Khrushchev
good reason to taunt United
States Vice-President Richard M.
Nixon on his tour of the USSR.
He pointed out that the Vice-
President has given no denial to
Khrushchev's claims to Russian
military superiority.
But defeat, while possible, is by
no means inevitable, he stressed.
Have Sacrificed People
For their accumulation of
strength, the Communists have
sacrificed a "terrible" number of
people, he said. "Most people in
the Soviet Union are still living
poorly by any standards of the
modern technological age - and
the people know it."
"Can Khrushchev put so much
weight on heavy industry and
economic development and at the
same time give enough money to
keep his people q u i e s c e n t?"
Schwartz asked.
The Soviet leader "is going to
have to bend to the public will,"
Schwartz predicted. As the Soviet
public is allowed to see travel and
fashion exhibitions, they will be-
come increasingly restless, unless
given more benefits, he noted.
Youth 'Not Impressed'
The younger generation in Rus
sia is "not terribly impressed by-
how bad things were before the
Revolution," he said, but are
"more impressed by how bad
things are in 1959."
Another potential Soviet weak-
ness, Schwartz said, lies in the
possibility of a break or' conflict
with Red China.
He warned, however, that al-
though Americans can find "con-
soling possibilities, any nation
which depends on something to
happen in the opponent's back
yard is foolish."
