VOL. 90 NO. 187 TUCSON, ARIZONA, MONDAY EVENING, AUGUST 6, 1962 MAin 2-5855 10 GENTS—44 PAGES RUSS RESUME NUCLEAR TESTS Peace Talks Pressed GENEVA — UPI • — The Soviet resumption of nuclear tests added new urgency today to efforts of the 17-nation disarmament conefrence to break the East-West arms deadlock. U.S. Ambassador Arthur H. Dean and Soviet Deputy Foreign Minister Valerian A. Zor- in planned further private talks in an attempt to find common ground on 'a treaty banning all nuclear tests. RUSSIA'S EXPLOSION of a 40-megaton bomb in the Arctic .yesterday caused regret among Western and neutral i delegates. It was felt that the: Soviet resumption of tests on top of U.S. tests in the Pacific would complicate the task of finding agreement on a treaty. With both the United States and Russia now conducting tests, however, there was general agreement among the delegates that a ban is more urgent than ever. Report of the new Soviet test came yesterday as Dean and Zorin met for 90 minutes in an "inconclusive" attempt to break the deadlock on a test ban. Further talks were planned. A U. S. delegation spokesman said the meeting in the Soviet residence was largely a courtesy and procedural call following Dean's return Saturday from Washington consultations with President Kennedy on a. possible modification of U.S. proposals. Russia and the United States are ECONOMY STEP Railroads Give Notice Of Change In Rules co-chairmen ence. of the confer- • U. S. DELEGATION sources hinted that Dean's manner of handling any modification of the U. S. position would depend on the outcome of his talks with Zorin. The main point at issue is the American insistence upon international inspections of a ban. The Russians maintain that existing national detection systems are adequate and that international on-site inspections would lead to Western espionage in the Soviet Union. President Kennedy said last week that new data on underground explosions may permit the United Staes to scale down its demands on the international character of actual controls. —AP Wirephoto MAYNARD WHEELER Solvents President Gives Up NEW YORK — (/P) — Maynard Wheeler, Commercial Solvents Corp. president accused in a Texas anti-trust indictment stemming from the Billie Sol Estes scandal, said today the charge against him was "a shocking piece of politics which will not succeed." "Any indictment they can dream up is without any foundation, and will collapse," Wheeler predicted in the criminal courts building after being paroled to await a hearing Sept. 6 as a fugitive from justice in Texas. Wheeler was arraigned in felony court after surrendering to police earlier today. Whitman Knapp, attorney for the 62-year-old executive, told Magistrate David L. Malbin his client would be ready to "get on a plane and go" to Texas whenever his counsel there confirmed that a bona fide charge has been made." Knapp added "this has nothing to do with the type of thing being said about Billie Sol Estes." There is no charge of fraud or chicanery against Wheeler, the attorney said. CHICAGO—(/P)—The nation's railroads gave notice to five operating unions today that drastic new rules to effect operating economies will go into effect Aug. 16 for 200,000 on-train employes. Trie step, taken while a union petition to bar imposition of less stringent work rules changes was pending in U. S. District Court, would put into force proposals made by the railroads Nov. 2, 1959. The more comprehensive revision of working conditions is expected to cost the jobs of many train crewmen and extend the length of operating runs for those remaining. Judge Joseph Sam Perry had announced shortly before the surprise move by the carriers that he will rule tomorrow on the union petition to bar less stringent rules changes Aug. 16. The revised economy labor program was submitted to Perry by railroad attorneys shortly before a recess in the unions' injunction hearing. The original sweeping economy proposals call for elimination of positions made unnecessary by technological advances, the removal of jurisdictional work divisions requiring overlapping pay and revision of the 43-year-old mileage-work limitations to permit longer runs and increase speed of trains. Perry rejected a suggestion by railroad attorneys that Secretary of Labor Arthur Goldberg be brought into the suit. APPARENT SUICIDE Marilyn Monroe Dead Ironworkers Walk Off 10 Projects HOLLYWOOD UP)—Marilyn Monroe's body lay today in the county morgue— in a tragic climax to a lifetime of personal sorrow that even wealth and fame couldn't ease. She was found dead early yesterday in the cluttered bedroom of her $75,000 Brentwood home, an empty bottle of sleeping pills near her nude body. Schoolboys could recite her famous measurements (37-23-37) and her photos, nude and otherwise, had appeared in practically every periodical in the world. But on her coroner's call sheet, tagged to crypt 33 in the morgue, were these unrevealing statistics: weight 117 pounds, height 65 ^ inches, hair blonde and eyes blue. Next of kin — Gladys Baker, mother. Address unknown. Only Joe DiMaggio, second of her three husbands, showed any relative interest in her death. Her mother, an inmate of mental institutions for most of her life, was last confined to a home in nearby La Crescenta. Marilyn, who had shifted for herself since early childhood, was known to have made a will outlining plans for her own burial. • A business associate said that it had not been found yet and funeral arrangements were pending until its discovery expected later today. DiMaggio hopped on the first plane leaving San Francisco for Los Angeles after hearing of her death via a radio bulletin. He was in seclusion in a Santa Monica hotel. Though Marilyn divorced him in 1955, the two had remained good friends. Playwright Arthur Miller, since remarried, de- Malbin paroled Wheeler in his lawyer's custody, noting, "this man's trying to get before a court of justice." By CHARLES GUDAITIS Work on an estimated 10 commercial projects—including two schools—was halted in Tucson today by a walkout of Ironworkers Union Local 75 following a breakdown last week of statewide negotiations with steel fabricators and erectors. Only about 35 union members were taking part in the picketing. The bulk of the local union membership— some 350 men—is employed in Titan work which is unaffected by the strike. Among the picketed projects were the Palo Verde High School auditorium, new- Flowing Wells elementary school, Randolph Park tennis courts, Skyline Country Club Estates clubhouse, and M. M. Sundt Construction Co. plant Walkout By Tile Men Ends The return to work today of 35 Floor Coverers Union members ended a five-week walkout that was punctuated by threats and vandalism. A compromise agreement calling for a 10 cents an hour wage increase effective today through next June 15 was reached Saturday afternoon With tile contractors. The settlement boosts union wages from $3.70 to $3.80 an' hour. During the strike, which started June 29, the union offered short form contracts to firms or individuals providing for a 1?V;> cents an hour increase. The contractors initially counteroffered 5 cents an hour for each year of a three-year pact. Both sides gave ground Saturday, settling for 10 cents for a period of less than a year. Arizona Escapee Caught In Nevada Held Family At Gunpoint 15 Hours; Assaulted 2 Women E. Germany, Red China Sign Pact ~ BERLIN—UPI—East Germany announced yesterday that it signed a trade agreement with Communist China Saturday. East Germany will deliver machinery and industrial equipment to China in exchange for minerals, chemicals, textiles, tea, food products, and light industrial foods. No value was indicated For the treaty. LAS VEGAS, Nev. — (/?)— '• A man sought in the Arizona kidnaping of a California family was arrested near Las Vegas,-officers said, after he kept a Las Vegas family at gunpoint 15 hours and raped two women. James Henry Meador, 22, of Santa Monica, Calif., was arrested Sunday in Mesquite, about 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas. Federal, state and local officers captured him, wounded in one shoulder, after sealing all exits from the town. Officers said he gave up at the point of a deputy's rifle, although there was a .38 caliber revolver in his car. Meador's two companions, Larry McDaniel, 29, of Casa Grande, Ariz., and William Byrne, 20, San Manuel and Kincaid, 111., were arrested Saturday at Cedar City, Utah. The three are accused in the kidnaping of Mrs. Gladah Anderson, 39, of Beaumont, Calif., and A her daughters Sue Ann, 12, and Laurie Jo, 2 The victims were found unharmed in Las Vegas. The alleged kidnaping was near Florence, Ariz., where the men escaped from custody. Officers said Meador remained free and on Saturday raped a Las Vegas housewife as she waited in her car for her husband to get off work at a casino hotel. The woman fought for his gun and it discharged a bul let into his shoulder. He re on Houghton road, according to the union. The walkout was not expected to interfere with opening of Palo Verde classes Aug. 30, as classroom construction has been completed. Current work is on the auditorium. The modern Flowing Wells school job had not been slated for completion until this winter. Edward Gallagher, assistant business agent stationed in Tucson, reported that union men had been working without a contract since May 30 while negotiations were carried on in Phoenix. Only a few pickets were stationed Friday and were withdrawn later that day. Today the full force of 35 men took over their strike posts. The ironworkers said they were seeking contract settlements equivalent to those reached by other sectors of the construction industry. Their current wage rate is $4.10 an hour for reinforcing work and $4.35 for structural and finishing work. The contractors have offered 10 cents an hour increases for each of three years for a total package of 30 cents. The ironworkers claim that the building industry settlement pal- tern was 47 } / 2 cents, including fringe benefits. clined to make a public statement of the death of his former wife. Miller became Miss Monroe's third husband in 1956 and they were divorced last year. Asked in Roxbury, Conn., if he had any comment to make, he answered: "I don't, really." Meanwhile, a special coroner's so-called suicide team prepared a series of tests to officially determine whether the 36-year-old actress accidentally or intentionally took the overdose of pills that investigators believe killed her. Coroner Theodore J. Curphey said psychiatric tests would play an important part in the verdict. "We will question her friends and others to determine her mood preceding death," the coroner said "This is most necessary in a case where no notes were found with the body. "Our investigation so far shows that she did not die of natural death, and we can make a presumptive opinion that death was due to an overdose of a drug." He said it might be 48 hours before a verdict can be announced. Thus in death the screen's sex goddess left behind the same mysterious personality contrast that she evinced in life. As Marilyn Monroe, movie star, she was'under a public microscope — exciting, wanted and mobbed by adoring fans. Her more than a score of movies since her first big break in "The Asphalt Jungle" of 1950 had grossed $200 million. Trigger Shot In Arctic —AP Wirephoto JAMES H. MEADOR portedly robbed her of $12 and fled on foot. A few hours later Meador forced his way into a Las Vegas home and held a man and his baby daughter at gunpoint for' hours, police said. Officers said the mother returned home and Meador raped her after tying her husband in another bedroom. Meador than took their car and $20 and fled to Mesquite, where he was arrested. He was booked in Las Vegas for investigation of kidnaping, robbery and rape. The others were booked in Cedar City on federal warrants charging kidnaping, interstate transportation of ^stolen vehicles and flight from justice. Moist Air Being Kept From Here Summer rains Haven't finished, But they sure Have diminished. —Driyup Mostly clear skies, with only occasional photogenic clouds, will continue tonight and tomorrow, the weatherman says. It's not too late for summer storms, but for at least the next day or two a high pressure system is keeping moist air from the Gulf of Mexico from moving into the area. The weatherman says the flow of upper air is from the west, exactly against the pattern which brings the monsoon. It will be hot-^again tomorrow with a 102-degree high expected. Yesterday's high was 100. Last night's coolest was 72 and tonight's low will be about 73. At 2 p.m. today, it was 97 in the shade with 18 per cent humidity.

He was accompanied by Col. Souad Ei Arab, commander of the Willaya II forces who was arrested but later released during the political crisis that ended with the installation of the Ben Bella-dominated political bureau last week. Ben Bella was named in charge of "interior coordination" in the ruling political bureau, meaning he will have top responsibility for internal administration. His chief aide, Mohammed Khider, also emerged with a key post, giving them a commanding voice in forging the future of an independent Algeria. Fighting broke out in Constantine about two weeks ago when Willaya II forces were unable to agree among themselves on whether to support Premier Ben Youssef Ben Khedda or Ben Bella in the power struggle. Ben Bellist forces from the Willaya I area to the south marched on Constantine and took over control of the big city in Eastern Algeria. Souad El Arab was arrestec after the clashes. In meetings ater with Ben Bella the two were reported to have reached 'agreement." But Souad E! Arab has not yet publicly proclaimed support for Ben Bella. Now It's $725 For Winner Citizen Charlie, who has paid $11,275 in jackpots since he first started his popular crossword puzzle in the Tucson Daily Citizen, is building up for a good one. The old "Brainbuster" this week is offering a $725 jackpot to the person who can solve I.is easy-looking but deceptive puzzle, found on page 31 of today's Citizen. And contestants, once again, will be able to use puzzles printed today and tomorrow in the Citizen. In fact, contestants may send in asimany entries as they wish, if they follow rules. Word clues will appear tomorrow, also. Deadline is 9 a.m. Thursday. The winner, if any, will be announced Saturday. Settlement of the entire Willaya question was one of the most pressing assignments faced by the political bureau members. Khider was given control of finances, information services and the secretariat of the National Liberation Front (FLN) which Ben Bella hopes to reorganize into Algeria's only political party. The power behind their assignments was underlined by Ahmed Boumendjel, a Ben Bella spokesman, who told United Press international yesterday the political bureau is the "holder of sovereignty" in Algeria. This meant it claimed power over the mixed Moslem- French provisional executive which is supposed to be running Algeria until elections, and over the Provisional Revolutionary Government (GPRA) of Ben Khedda. The division of jobs in the political bureau appeared to leave a^ Ben Kheddist supporter, Mohammed Boudiaf in third position as chief ol policy planning for the bu reau and responsible for for eign affairs. Since Boudiaf is a member of the GPRA, to which mos foreign countries have ac credited their ambassadors this was a logical choice. At the banks that finance movies, her name on a contract meant "unlimited credit for a producer. Only her last two movies, "Let's Make Love" and "The Misfits," had been disappointing at the box office-—a fact which distressed her. She seemed happy as Marilyn Monroe, the star, with the spotlights beaming brightly. But when the lights went off in her lonely bedroom, the dreams of Marilyn Monroe, the sex symbol, became the nightmares of Norma Jean Baker, lost waif in a lost world. Few movie scripts will ever match the drama of the Marilyn Monroe story, the beautiful girl who had everything — but personal happiness. Her childhood was as publicized as that of the nation's presidents. Every movie fan knew the details —as tragic as her death. The unwanted and unloved waif, boarded at county expense in a variety of foster homes ... a little girl who washed mountains of dirty dishes and scrubbed acres of dirty floors. And all the while dreaming of becoming a movie star—and, when she did, her insecure childhood failed to cushion her against the shocking insecurity of the Hollywood jung'e.

MOSCOW —UPI— The So- iet Union resumed nuclear esting yesterday with a tremendous high-altitude explo- ion near the Arctic island of Novaya Zemlaya but the Rus- ion people were not told bout it through their news- japers and radios. The seismological institute at Uppsala, Sweden, estimated he force in the range of 40 megatons —r equivalent of 40 million tons of TNT — making t probably the second most powerful explosion ever set off. BUT TODAY Soviet news outlets concentrated orj the first anniversary of the 17- orbit flight of Soviet Cosmonaut Gherman Titov and sang the praises of Russia's exploration into space for "exclusively peaceful purposes." At the same time the Soviet Communist party newspaper Pravda denounced "enemies of peace . . . trying to turn outer space into an arena of aggression." "Is it not true that this is proved by t he explosions staged in outer space by American atom mongers?" Pravda asked. THE ONLY explosion to exceed yesterday's test in force was Russia's giant blast last fall which was estimated at over 50 megatons. That blast occurred during the Soviet series that broke the three- year EastAVest moratorium on testing. As with previous tests, Kremlin leaders made no announcement of yesterday's resumption of testing. Russians in the streets first learned of the blast . from Western correspondents. THE U. S. Atomic Energy commission in Washington reported the explosion but gave no details. . The start of the new Soviet series, forecast by Kremlin leaders for several weeks, came as delegates to the 17- nation disarmament conference in Geneva settled down for further negotiations on a test ban treaty. Premier Nikita S. Khrushchev and other Soviet leaders have contended that Russia was forced into new tests because of the American tests in the Pacific started last April. THE NEW explosion had been expected as the signal for Soviet military maneuvers which began yesterday In the Barents and Kara seas areas. The maneuvers are scheduled to last until Oct. 20. Last fall's nuclear tests occurred in this region. Two weeks ago the Soviet Union warned ships and planes to steer clear of a large area around the Barents and Kara seas during the maneuvers. The announcement said the military exercises would include tests of "various types of modern weapons."
