OTTAWA HERALD VOL. 65 NO. 257 OTTAWA, KANSAS, MONDAY, OCTOBER 9, 1961 7 CENTS TEN PAGES AMC Local Rejects Profit Sharing Plan UAW Pickets Bar Office Workers At Ford Factory Swipes WESTHAMPTON, Mass. (AP) —A compass test for five young Boy Scouts was something less than a success—they became lost in the dense woods of Pisgha Mountain for 23 hours. A search party found the scouts 11 to 15 years old, huddled around a camp fire shortly before noon Sunday. They were tired, hungry, thirsty and chagrined. Police Chief Earl Gett said Scoutmaster Chester Wronski told him he left the boys Saturday morning. They had compasses and a topographical map, and were to have hiked to Norwich Lake, eaten lunch there, then met Wronski at Pine Island Lake at 4 p.m. When they had not arrived three hours after the appointed rendezvous, Wronski notified police. The boys said darknes arrived before they came in sight of Pine Island Lake so they lit a fire and decided to stay put. They had one flashlight and some candles, canteens but no placeto fill them, no sleeping bags and no food.

(AP) — Police Chief W. D. Blake says the cyanide poisoning deaths of two University of North Carolina students found dead in their room were "either double murder, a suicide pact or murder-suicide." An autopsy report Saturday said the deaths resulted from cyanide poison. A six-man coroner's jury received the report.

The union argument runs that such agency agreements, as they are called, simply recompense the union for acting as collective bargaining agency for all workers. On the other side, the argument is that the device has the practical effect of pressuring workers into the union. The Supreme Court refusal to consider the Kansas case took on added importance because the National Labor Relations Board ruled Sept. 29 that agency agreements do not violate the federal Taft-Hartley labor law. A U.S. Air Force weather bulletin warned that within the next 24 hours winds of over 98 miles an hour would lash Tokyo and vicinity.

AWOL Soldier Lands In Jail A 17-year-old Fort Riley Soldier is in the Franklin County jail awaiting action on at least one federal charge, Sheriff Max Gilmore said today. Stephen Carroll Driggcrs, assigned to the Second Battle Group, was jailed yesterday after wrecking an allegedly stolen car two miles south of Wellsville on K-33, Gilmore said. He said Driggers admitted being absent without leave from Fort Riley. Driggers reportedly told G i 1- more that he took a 1951 car belonging to Bart Chandley, Kansas Soviet Ambassador Involved In Fist Fight At Amsterdam AMSTERDAM (AP) - A free- j swinging fist fight broke out at Amsterdam airport today between Dutch police and Soviet Embassy officials, including Ambassador Panteleimon K. Pono- marenko, who was heard to shout at one point: "Do you know I am the ambassador?" The brawl erupted in a dispute over the passport of a Soviet woman tourist who police feared was being taken back to Russia against her will. The Soviet officials were bundled bodily from the police office—at least one of them nursing a bruise. Premier Jan de Quay then summoned the Soviet ambassador to the Hague for a conference while the woman remained at the airport. The Soviet tourist, Mrs. Alexei Golub, is the wife of a 35-year- old Soviet chemical engineer who defected Saturday and asked asylum here. She was brought to the airport today, accompanied by Soviet officials, to board a plane back to Moscow. Soon afterward 15 Soviet Embassy men, including Ponomaren- ko, stormed into the police office at the airport demanding Mrs. Golub's passport. The policeman in charge. Frits Veltman, refused to hand it over until he talked with Mrs, Golub and had her assurance she was returning of her own free will. Witnesses said a fist fight then broke out, involving at least six Dutch police and a similar num ber of Soviet officials. At least one Russian—press at- tache A.D. Popov — was hurt in the brawl, witnesses said. The Dutch policemen Veltman also had a bloodied hand when he later spoke to newsmen. Later Mrs. Golub was taken by Ponomarenko and other Soviet officials to the airport office of the Soviet Aeroflot airline. A dozen Dutch military police stood on guard outside the room. There they resumed the discussions but police still insisted on personal interview with Mrs. Golub before handing over her passport. The Golubs were staying in Amsterdam with a group of 29 Soviet tourists at the fashionable Hotel Schiller. A police spokesman said that on Saturday both left the Schiller and went to another hotel nearby. As a result of what the husband told the manager, police were called and took Golub away in a police car. By this time, however, Mrs. Golub had disappeared. Dutch officials say they believe Mrs. Golub had originally also intended to ask for political asylum, but apparently changed her mind. City, Mo., from the Missouri city late Saturday. Leaving Kansas City on Interstate 35, Driggers said, the car ran out of gas near Wellsville. After spending the night in the car, the young soldier went to Wellsville where he acquired a ;allon of gasoline at the Phillip Jacoby Service. Driggers and Jacoby then returned to the car, which was driven to the station and filled with gas. Driggers allegedly left before paying for his purchase. Loren Jacoby, son of the station owner, told his father he would follow the car, calling if it left K-33. The elder Jacoby then called sheriff's officers. "Jacoby called back about two minutes later to say the car had been rolled on a curve south of Wellsville," Gilmore continued. Driggers, found unconscious, was taken to Ransom Memorial Hospital from which he later was released. Damage to the car was estimated at about $300. Driggers, scheduled for questioning today by Kansas City authorities, probably will be returned to face charges of taking a stolen car across the state line, Gilmore said.

Lapp, who helped in development of the atom bomb, says it's his opinion that fallout from the Soviet Union's nuclear tests have exceeded the "safe annual limit." The Soviets fired their 19th atmospheric explosion Sunday in their current test series. Lapp was interviewed on a recorded radio program—ABC—As We See It—Sunday. "They have, according to the latest count, megatons of sent up weapons. over 10 I don't know precisely how much of this would be dirty, but this, in my opinion, exceeds the safe level that a number of scientists—some of them from the Atomic Energy Commission—agreed upon as a safe level back in 1957 when we didn't know about the different kind of fallout from Russian tests," Lapp said. "It turns out that Russian tests "Therefore, the safe annual limit for Russian testing I would put closer to the value of 3 megatons per year than I would the old 1U57 value of 10 megatons per year." A megaton is the equivalent of of the energy released by a mil- dump their debris back to the ! Hon tons of TNT. earth sooner than the American tests in the Pacific. And, therefore, we find out on the actual base of measurements that you get 10 times as much radiation dose from these arctic tests in Russia as you do from American tests in the Pacific. The Atomic Energy Commission in announcing the Soviet Union's 19th nuclear detonation, said the blast was in the atmosphere and was in "the low yield range." The AEC has defined low range as equivalent to about 20,000 lorif of TNT.
