Khrushchev Accuses West
Of Trying To Turn Germany
Into Future Battle Ground
BERLIN, W Russian Commun
ist Party chief Khrushchev Thurs
day warned that the explosion of
war over Germany would bring
the United States under the threat
of attack from hydrogen rockets.
Khrushchev told a special ses

ment the Western powers are try
ing to turn West Germany into a
war base and are creating "an
extremely serious situation."
"They want to use the German
people as cannon fodder in their
plans to conquer the world," the
Red chieftain declared.
The speech parroted numerous
other blasts from Khrushchev, So
viet spokesmen and Soviet prop
aganda organs. Presumably this
time it was intended to scare West
German voters who on Sept. 15
elect new Parliament and de
cide whether to retain the govern
ment of staunchly pro-western,
anti-Corn muffist Chancellor Aden
auer. Before Khrushchev spoke, East
German Premier Otto Grotewohl
restated his regime's endorsement
of the long-standing Soviet pro

House Sets
Bill Aside
For Study
72-18 Vote Approves
Controversial Issue
With Jury Trial Setup
temporarily sidestepped a decision
Thursday on what to do about the
civil rights bill.
The bill, which the Scnats
passed Wednesday night on a 72
18 vote, was laid on the sneaker's
desk to give House leaders mora
tune to sound out sentiment and
consider compromise proposals.
For the time being, no attempt
will be made to send the meas
ure to a Senate-House conference
to resolve differences with the bill
which the House passed 286-126
on June 18. The House bill, close
ly following administration recom
mendations, is broader in scope
and more stringent in enforce
ment provisions.
House Republican leader Martin
of Massachusetts added substance
to reDOrtR that Prpsirfonl: F.tenn.

into special session unless he gets
a measure he feels he can sign.
Eisenhower has objected parti
cularly to a provision added by
the Senate to require iurv trials
in all criminal contempt cases in
the federal courts.
Martin told newsmen that if
Congress finally passes a bill
which fails to meet Eisenhower s
specifications he would personal
ly recommend that the President
veto it and call Congress back in
November to try again.
Speaker of the House Rayburn
of Texas, spokesman for the Dem
ocratic House majority, said he
would have a statement Friday
on what he thinks should be done.

decide then what action to take.
There was backstage maneu

the jury trial amendment to cases
involving only the protection of
voting rights.
Backers of such a measure
roundly criticized the jury trial
