Souers, Dies Services will be Monday for Philip Webster Souers, 60, chair man of the University of Oregon's English Department, who died at home Friday evening following a two months' illness. The services will be in St. Mary's Episcopal Church at 11 a.m. with the Rev. Stcen White side officiating. A prominent rose gardener, an author, and a lover of classical music, Souery had been a pro fessor of English at the university since 1945. Born Jan. 6, 1897, at Des Moines, Iowa, he received a bach elor of arts degree in Romance languages at the University of Iowa in 1920, and a master ol arts and a doctor of philosophy degree at Harvard, 1924 and 1928, respectively. TAUGHT OLD ENGLISH Souers taught Old English and Chaucer, both required courses for graduate students at the university. O. Meredith Wilson, president of the university, saddened by word of Souers' death, said Sat- Indian Lands Decision Due WASHINGTON Wi The De partment of the Interior will make an early recommendation on conservation of Klamath Indi an Reservation timber resources, Secretary Fred A. Seaton said Saturday. Public ownership will meet the major problems, he said, but if any reasonable alternative" to public ownership cm be found, it should be explored. Seaton said that conservation of the reservation timber is "of pri mary import to the economy of the area and to the welfare of the public generally." He said the government wants sustained yield and at the same time wants to protect the Indians rights. Federal trusteeship over the reservation is scheduled to end in August of 1960. The Indians then will have the right to withdraw the cash value of their tribal assets which con sist mainly of t huge stand of pine. The termination act means, in essence, that the Indians shall be placed in the same status as all other citizens, seaton said. But he said that management specialists will be bound to ob tain the greatest amount of money possible for the Indians if they sell the timber. iu uiuci iu get me iiiBNcaitColgate Cornell 13 private bids possible, he Mid, itlTcu is.

SOUERS Funeral Rites Monday urday the department head "was a wise administrator and a gifted counselor to his colleagues. "Philip Souers has served with distinction since 1945. He was recognized as an outstanding scholar in the field of Anglo- Saxon and Medieval literature," Wilson said. "His was an authoritative voice in the scholarship relative to Chaucer." Wilson said the professor has made "a significant contribution" to the development of the University of Oregon as a distinguished institution. "His students and colleagues will miss him greatly." SURVIVORS Souers married Helen Orton at Rock Island, 111., Sept. 7, 1922. Besides his widow, he is survived by a son, Clark, a student at Stanford University; his mother, Mrs. Webb Souers and a brother, Clark, both of Des Moines.

Wm. and Miry I On Intruder Unidentified Aircraft Escapes 6th Fleet WITH U.S. 6TH FLEET OFF TURKEY Wl Vice Adm. Charles R. Brown ordered American jet intercep tors rnursaay to snoot aown with Sidewinder missiles a possible hostile aircraft over the U.S. 6th Fleet. The plane escaped to Communist Bulgaria before U.S. Navy delta wing Skyrays could catch it. An unidentified plane believed to be Russian flew over American amphibious forces massed in Turkey's Saros Gulf at midday on Monday, Tuesday and Wednes-- day. It came in at high altitude from the direction of Bessarabia, across the Black Sea along the Romanian and Bulgarian coasts, across the isthmus of Turkey and over the invasion fleet massed for a NATO exercise only 30 miles south of Bulgaria. The plane turned north and crossed Greece before returning to Bulgaria. OVER 35,000 FEET The 6th Fleet took no action on the first three days, although the plane was detected on radar and by jet trails. The plane was be lieved to be on a photographic mission. It flew higher than 35,. 000 feet. On Thursday, the twin jet swept-wing aircraft came in very low, at an estimated speed of 600 miles an hour plus, again at about midday. It was not detected by radar this time, but flashed over the amphibious force and was seen by several qualified officers. Adm. Brown, the 6th Fleet com mander, radioed to Rear Adm uimora H. uuerleldts carrier force 100 to 200 miles away "a possibility hostile aircraft is ap proaching your -area. If it men aces your formation use Side winders to prevent photography." 'ALERT-ONE' ORDERED Sidewinders are slender, air-to- air missiles carried beneath a plane's wines. They have homing devices and are armed with con ventional high - explosives warheads. Commanders of the three car riers in the 90-ship fleet ordered an "alcrt?one" which means jet fighters must be ready to take off immediately. One of the pilots ready on catapults to blast off said later: "I was prepared to fire the first shot in World War III." The plane veered away, how ever, before reaching the carriers. NO OFFICIAL COMMENT The Skyrays already aloft tried to intercept the plane but no con tact was made and no shots were fired. Many officers and several civil ians saw copies of Adm. Brown's order, but Brown declined offici ally to confirm or deny such a message was transmitted. Brown refused permission for correspondents to file the story through Navy communications, but said they were at liberty to do so by other means. ' There was some question whether the American fleet would have the legal right to shoot down a plane menacing it, even though the plane violated Turkish and Greek territory. Florida Real Estate Project Tied to Hoffa WASHINGTON V-The Senate Rackets Committee sought new information Saturday about James R. Hoffa's dealings with underworld figures and about his role in selling Florida real estate to Teamsters Union members. The committee arranged an un usual Saturday session in an ef fort to wind up its current series of hearings on Hoffa'8 affairs be fore the Teamsters union opens its convention in Miami Beach on Monday. Hoffa, Midwest boss of the Teamsters, is in Miami Beach as the front-running candidate for president of the giant union, dc spite corruption charges against him by the Senate committee and by the AFL-CIO. Peter J. Hoban, campaign manager for Thomas J. Haggcrty, candidate for Teamsters Union president against Hoffa, said Saturday he has challenged more than 229 delegates to the cenven- tion. Senate Investigators heard testimony Saturday that James R. Hoffa used Teamsters Union funds in a Florida real estate venture in the face of his lawyer's advice that "the law would condemn" the practice. Robert F. Kennedy, counsel to the Senate Rackets Committee, said the project offered Hoffa and Detroit Ted estate man Hen Ike kvr- v 1 II I A 7- ter I l: : t T" l!ii$5. p vq 1 -f;V. , 1 1 X 9 Imimwiwii iir aeaaaassss laamsanatsssan n n iKiiiimiitl i " i -n rui siaaissaiiTnioB iiiiminiinniummiiisr rl (Itofflster-Guard photo) HE'S OFF Gordon Mitchell, of 1882 Agate St., typifies the mad scramble that ensued in many Emerald Empire homes Friday afternoon when word of the opening of deer season was heard. It was a hasty goodbye for Mitchell's wife, Harriet, and daughter, Cathy, as he headed for deer country with rifle and sleeping bag in hand. Great Hunt Begins Blacktails Smiling At Move Eastward lly DAN Si; IX A HI) of the Rcglster-Guard There was a story making the rounds Saturday morning that the blacktail deer in Western Oregon were smiling broadly as they watched great droves of hunters speeding by on their way to Eastern Oregon, the mule deer country.

Joscnh Kritch of Northvillc, Mich., a former salesman of lots in tho project, said the project involved selling to Teamsters Union members and the public lots which Kritch said were use less. The real estate project, called Sun Valley, was started late 1954 and was directed by Lower. Union Election To Proceed WASHINGTON The U.S. Circuit Court of Anneals Saturday set aside a District Court order that would have prohibited the Teamsters Union from electing national officers next week. The ruling by the three-judge Dancl staved a temporary injunc tion signed earlier Saturday by Federal District Judge F. Dickinson Letts.

The hoards "lit up like Christmas trees". Reed said. The weather was fine for hunting on both sides of the moun tains. While the low-flying clouds made visibility had in somo re gions, the recent rains "quieted the woods down" so that a man cuuld do his stalking without much advertisement.

Eastern Oregon was to he part ly cloudy Saturday, Saturday night and Sunday. And it was expected to be cloudy with a few showers in the Cascades Satur day.

They hoped to be in Portland for the Oregon-Pittsburgh ' foofiiall game Saturday nigh Reply Infers Mob Rule Encouraged NEWPORT, R.I. OR Pres ident Eisenhower Saturday indirectly accused Arkansas Gov. Orval Faubus of encouraging "mobs of extremists to flout the orders of a federal-court" " And the President said it would have been "tantamount to ac- encc in anarchy and would have resulted in "dissolution of the union" If he had not ordered troops into Little Rock to quell violence. Eisenhower set forth his views in a telegram to Sen. Russell (D-Ga), who had accused the troops sent to Little Rock of high hand ed tactics reminiscent of Hitler's Nazi storm troopers. On that point, the President told Russell, in replying to the senator's protest: IKE REPLIES "I must say that I completely fail to comprehend your comparison of our troops to Hitler's storm troopers. In one case military power was used to further thej ambitions and purposes of a ruthless dictator; in the other to preserve the Institutions of free gov-crnment." In sharp criticism of how the . Arkansas state government handled the situation in Little Rock prior to the call-out of federal troops, Eisenhower did not men- " tion Faubus by name. But there was no mistaking that the criti cism was directed at the gover- ' nor. . . WRITES SENATOR The President wrote Russell: - "My conviction is that had thtv police powers of the state of Ar kansas been utilized not to frustrate the orders of tho court but to support them, the ensuing vio- lence and open disrespect for the law and for the federal judicinry would never have occurred." Eisenhower obviously was al luding 'to the fact that Faubus called out the Arkansas National Guard Sept. 2 and used it to pre vent Negro students from attending classes at Central High School in Littlo Rock. The governor has contended he ordered the guard out to prevent violence and to preserve law and order. , High School Closure Eyed By Governor LITTLE ROCK, Ark. Wl Gov. Orval Faubus said Saturday he might try to closo Central High School, rather than continue its integrated classes at federal bay onet point. "It would be a very pleasant development," he declared. Faubus said enactment of new laws at a special session of the state Legislature would be 1 necessary prelude to any such drastic step. Earlier, he had revealed he was considering calling such a session, although he had not yet done so. Asked if a law to close tht IKE STATEMENT Continued on Page 3) "" mil.! 1 "1
