TWO ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH FRIDAY, OCTOBER 19,1956 British, U.S.Hit JSuez Snag By .tOHN M. BtGHTOWfct? WASHINGTON w> — The States and Brilain are report pd to have hit a new snag in trj-ing toj work cut common policies for dealing with Egypt <n the Surz Canal dispute. This one concenis the payment of tolls for ships going through the canal. 'However, some diplomatic off] rials say that at the heart of the current disagreement, is the basic issue of how tough a line the Western powers should take toward Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser. The specific problem of what the newly organized Suez Canal Users' Assn. should do about ship tolls- is in active negotiation be- Iween Secretary of State Dulles and British Foreign Secretary Selwyn Lloyd. Dulles is described as advocating that any money paid to the users' association by ships going • through the Suez should then be turned over to Egypt for use of ' the canal — less, of course, any association expenses for pilot services and the like.

(AP Photo) Railroader's Widow Asks $100,000 $368,000 Sought in Five Circuit Court Law Suits Lloyd is said to have proposed that such tolls be held as blocked funds not to be paid to Egypt until there is a final settlement of the Suez controversy. Failure to resolve these differ. ences is blamed for tho lack ol action by the U.S. government so far toward having American ship • owners pay canal tolls to the association instead of to Egypt, as they are now doing. : Dulles' proposal in effect woulc carry over the present American practice of paying money to Egypt But it would enhance the prestige and authority of the users' association by making it an intermediary. Dulles has maneuvered ever since the crisis arose to avoid a showdown with Egypt while Brit ain and France on various occasions would have preferred to force the issue.

Smith said the fire broke out in the main floor lounge of Gault Hall, a $150.000 brick and steel structure which tvas opened only last fall.

Tom McDevitt of Pocatello, Idaho, told Smith: "An explosion awakened me. I looked out my window and saw flames shooting up to the windows of the lounge in Gault Hall." Firemen fought the fire for 45 minutes before bringing it under control. Martinson was joined in his investigation of the blaze by university officials, including C. 0. Decker, dean of students. i Decker called the death of the three students in the blaze "mur- Showers Likely Saturday FORECAST WEATHER FORECAST—Scattered showers are expected tonight in Oklahoma and eastern Kansas and in the northern Rockies, with fair to partly cloudy skies prevailing elsewhere.

With speeches here today and in Baltimore tonight, he completes his s'econdj major cross-country swing. Monday he starts a third', more concentrated tour.

"Most of us here will live to see the day when American boys and girls shall sit side by side at any school, public or private — with no regard paid to the color of their skin," Nixon said. Nixon said the United States will work first to remove from the world the fear of war and the burden of armament, then seek by exchange of persons and other means to convince Communist governments that "even on their materialist assumptions, they must restore full freedom if their society is to work." Edwardsville Rotary Club Backs TB Tax EDWARDSVILLt — Members of the Edwardsville Rotary Club Thursday at St. John's Methodist Church voted to support the Madison County Sanatorium tax proposal to be voted upon in connection with the Nov. 6 general election. The club appropriated $100 to assist in bringing to attention of Edwardsville voters the importance of pass-age of the proposal to continue the county tuberculosis sanatorium tax. The tax proposal, which will appear on a separate ballot in the wording required by law and which calls for a vote either for or against "levy of an additional tax." actually would not result in an additional new tax but merely insure j the continuation of the existing tax which supports the county sanatorium and clinic. The word "additional" in the proposal merely means that the sanatorium tax is in addition to other taxes for other county purposes, but it is not a new or additional tax. Passage of the proposal will ensure the continued operation of the sanatorium and clinic and will not increase present tax rates. Rotary recognizes the tremendous value of the sanatorium and clinic services to the comity, and fearful that the tax proposal on the ballot might be misinterpreted, d.e- cided to take an active part in bringing the attention of voters in the area to need for favorable action on the proposal, a spokesman said today. During the discussion of Rofary's action, the opinion was expressed that it would be a "tragic occurrence" if through the lack of public understanding the tax proposal for support of the sanatorium, were to fail. In other business at the meeting, Kefauver Raps GOP 'Nonsense' By B. t. UVINGSTOXB LAS VEGAS, Nev. UP) — Sen.

In unusually strong words prepared for a democratic luncheon rally here not far from the birthplace" of the A-bomb, Kefauver made It clear the Democrats intend to keep on pressing an international H-bomb curb as a campaign issue.
