  • Description

    MR KHRUSHCHEV IS ON A TEN-DAY VISIT TO CZECHOSLOVAKIA TO CELEBRATE THE 20TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE SLOVAK UPRISING AGAINST THE NAZI OCCUPATION.

    THE SOVIET PRIME MINISTER ARRIVED FROM MOSCOW YESTERDAY (THURSDAY), AND ONE OF HIS FIRST ENGAGEMENTS WAS A RALLY IN PRAGUE'S MEDIEVAL WENCESLAS SQUARE.

    MORE THAN 100,000 PEOPLE CRAMMED THE SQUARE AND HEARD HIM LAUNCH A TWO-PRONGED ATTACK ON THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CHINA AND AMERICAN "IMPERIALISM".

    OF THE CHINESE, HE SAID THEY WERE "TRYING TO USE EVERY DIFFICULT PROBLEM IN ORDER TO DIVIDE THE SOCIALIST COUNTRIES, TO DRIVE A WEDGE BETWEEN THEM AND TO SOW MISTRUST."
    HE THEN WENT ON TO ATTACK AMERICA "IMPERIALISM", CONDEMNING THE AMERICAN BOMBING OF NORTH VIETNAM, ITS "PROVOCATIVE ACTIVITY" IN LAOS, ITS SPY FLIGHTS OVER CUBA, AND ITS "PROVOCATIVE ACTIVITY" IN LAOS, ITS SPY FLIGHTS OVER CUBA, AND ITS "CYNICAL ASSISTANCE TO ROTTEN REGIMES" IN THE CONGO.

    TODAY (FRIDAY), MR KHRUSHCHEV DID SOME TOURING OF SOME OF THE CZECH CAPITAL'S HISTORIC SIGHTS. HE MINGLED FREELY WITH FOREIGN TOURISTS DURING A VISIT TO THE ANCIENT HILLTOP HRADCANY CASTLE, WHERE HE INSPECTED WEAPONS USED IN CENTURY-OLD BATTLES.

    HE ALSO ENTERED THE 11TH CENTURY ST. VITUS CATHEDRAL, WHICH IS STILL USED FOR ROMAN CATHOLIC SERVICES, AND ADMIRED ITS SUNLIGHT GOTHIC STYLE ARCHES.

    (THE CELEBRATIONS ARE OF SENTIMENTAL SIGNIFICANCE TO NO KHRUSHCHEV, FOR HE WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR SENDING PARTISANS INTO CZECHOSLOVAKIA TO ASSIST IN THE UPRISING 20 YEARS AGO.)
