Rothchild Tells Story Of Payoffs COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - A former Cairo, 111., policeman wh ha| admitted a robbery slaying says he turned to crime as an in termediary in protection fixes fo a gambling syndicate in Cairo Charles (Rocky) Rothsch'ild, 33 the 'former policeman, was to be taken to Georgia today to aid a sheriff in finding the pistol with which Rothschild says he shot anc killed Charles Drake, a merchant at Jefferson. Ga., in 1956. His confession last week of the Drake slaying will free James Fulton Foster, a house painter who had been convicted of the shooting and sentenced to die. In an interviejv Monday Rothschild said he became a criminal after he was fired as a Cairo policeman for arresting a politi dan's son. He did not name the politician. ' "I decided if I couldn't beat'em, I'd join "em," he said. Born at Wyatt, Mo., Rothschild said his widowed mother took him to Illinois when he was six. He and his mother worked at itinerant farm labor tasks Until she got'a job as a cook. He attended Southern Illinois University at Carbondale and played varsity football. Later, he was a basketball official, officiating at high school games. For ; about five years he worked for the Illinois Youth Commission in the juvenile delinquency prevention division. Today, Rothschild meets the 40 .year-old man who was sentencec 'to die for the murder Rothschild 'f admits committing. "I'm against capital punish ment," Rothschild said at the South Carolina State Penitentiary 1 in Columbia. "The wrong man can go to the chair," And, holding a Bible, he added: "1 wouldn't have let Kfm (Foster) go down for the crime." Rothschild confessed to the Drake slaying after starting a five- year prison term for a Spartanburg robbery conviction. Foster, married and the father of seven children, was under a death sentence for nearly two years. Twice he won stays of ex ecution. Rothschild will be returned to the South Carolina penitentiary later. Floods Drown 7 In Western Poland WARSAW (AP) ~ Floods following torrential r ai n s have drowned Seven persons and halted production in 16 industrial plants in western and southwestern Poland. Germany has cut aluminum prices. WASHINGTON (AP)-The ad-i ministration told Congress todayj that unless it restores a House cut of $325,000,000 in money fo: overseas economic developmen loans, the United States "couk lose the cold war by default.' Under Secretary of State C Douglas Dillon suggested, in feet, that Congress might consici er strapping the fund entirely i it refuses the 625 million dollar President Eisenhower asked fo the Development Loan Fund. "This reduction raises a ques tion not merely as to the scale o Fund operations," he told the Senate Appropriations Committee "but as to whether there shoulc be a fund at all. "It would deprive the Fund o any real prospect of achieving the purpose which Congress intendec the fund to fulfill." Dillon spoke at a closed sessior of the committee as" the adminis- .ration opened its fight to restore totai cuts of $597,500,000 the House made below authorized spending ireviously approved by Congress n the recently-enacted foreign aid bill. That authorization bill set ceil- ngs for foreign aid. The pending >ill will provide the -actual money. , The committee made public Dilon's opening statement. As the appropriations commit- ee began hearings on the money ill, Senate Democrats divided on he question of whether to over- ide the house cuts. Sen.

In the meant imp the Scouts had completed their supper, and the kitchen and dining room staff had cleared up. washed the dishes, reset the tables, and completed preparations for 1he Rotary supper to be served on the dot at 7. Sehenk, describing the camp and skipping lightly over Its his tory, -said 95 Scouts were regls tered for next week, and the op erational period was expected lo extend five or six weeks this summer. One of the big needs of the camp right now, he said, is for more canoes, and for replacement of its metal rowboats. now Ike Signs Statehood For Alaska WASHINGTON (API-Statehood for Alaska now is up to the Alas-1 company picnics there, and two showing serious symptoms o rusting through. He said the camp received use by many other groups than scouts through the year. Churches have held their retreats there, somo corporations have staged their leans themselves. And President Eisenhower almost forgot it. He signed the Alaskan statehood bill Monday and commented: "Okay, now that's 49 states." But he quickly corrected himself and said, "No, maybe we don't do that until the plebiscite." That was a reference to a provision in the bill requiring all Alaskans to vote whether they accept immediate statehood and terms of the bill itself. Voting on acceptance, plus elec- ion of national and state officer, are the last remaining steps be- bre issuance of a presidential u'oclamation—probably in Decem- ier—formally admitting Alaska to the union. Eisenhower urged Congress anew to admit Hawaii as a state luring this session. "f personally believe that Ha- vaitt is qualified for statehood qually with Alaska," he said.

Strom Thurmond (D- SC) said in a separate interview that if the committee does not make further reductions, he will ae ready with fund-cutting amendments when the bill comes up for full Senate consideration. Eisenhower has contended that the House was taking "reckless •isks" with American security in reducing the bill substantially be- ow the $3,900,000,000 he originally asked in new foreign aid money.

Bueschel, Chicago, the co-pilot. The name of the injured man, different labor unions have hac outings. In view of the council's ban on use of liquor on the grounds Srhenk remarked, this seemed a prelry good commentary on the type of people who worked for the industries, or belonged to the labor organizations involved. The camp, partially financed by contributions through the Community Chest, has developed into priceless asset for the community, Sehenk said. A recent trend now definitely developed, he said, is for entire troops to attend the camp during the summer season. These groups are accompanied by their own scoutmasters and do their camping in tents, rather than in cabins. The same trend, he pointed out, is - developing among families, who camp out on their cross- country tours. Sehenk said he felt this wasj teaching young Americans greater self-reliance. The Alton Rotary Club's newly- installed president, Herbert Hellrung, presided, introducing retiring president Ben Oettel of the Staunton Club and incoming president Harold Dial. Oettel took over the songleading for the evening as the Staunton group's active part in the program.

A smaller factory work week increase had been registered in May. The May-June increase in hours, aggregating nearly an hour, is the largest two-month gain in a dozen years. The fac tory work week had risen to 39.2 hours in June, which is still eight- tenths of an hour off last year. The increased work ho u r s h e I po d boost average weekly earnings of factory workers by $1.27 to $83.10 a week in June, a new record. Average hourly earnings remained steady at $2.12.
