Navy Hunts 'Sub 7 Seen In Pacific HONOLULU (AP)—A mysterious underwater object which the Pacific Antisubmarine Force commander said "is a long way from known submarine bases',' drew a swift search. Saturday by a U.S. aircraft carrier and four destroyers between Hawaii and the mainland. The 40,000-ton attack carrier Kearsarge, carrying three squadrons of antisubmarine warfare planes, rushed into the search on such a sudden emergency basis From Long Beach Friday that it left some crewmen in port. Vice Adm. J. S.. Thach, Pacific Antisubmarine Force commander, said the object "is a long way from known submarine bases and is in an area under my command, and-1 .want to know what it is." The Navy maintained a considerable hush-hush atmosphere. Thach said the Navy may not announce if and, when the Kearsarge makes contact. He indicated there might not be any further information on the operation. • One Object Sighted Thach said the reported location 'does not particularly indicate" Ihe object has "nuclear capabilities." He said the Air Force plane crew which made '•• the contact reported only one object was sighted. He declined when asked to comment on speculation the contact was a Communist submarine. He said there have been prev- ous sightings of unidentified objects in the same general area of :he Pacific. In explaining why he would not go into more detail on the loca- ion, the admiral said: "We want .0 play the chess game as well as we can. "This is not a. war scare. This contact is in an area where it las every right to be." Indiana Sailor Dies Of Burns On Ship SAN DIEGO, Calif.'

SUN BRITE LAUNDRY Ml Wert Irofldway loganiport, Ind. HST Talks In Virginia ABINGDON, Va. (AP)-Former President Harry S. Truman drew a standing "give 'em. hell" ovation Saturday as he lashed out at Vice President Richard M. Nixon, the Republican candidate for president. Nixon, Truman told between 15,000 and 20,000 partisan listeners, is a "political hatchet man" whose only reputation and standing is that.of "a shrewd and calculating politician." At one point during his "Acres •of Democrats" rally talk the former president spotted a sign calling' on him to "give 'em hell." "I never gave the Republicans hell,",Truman said. "I just told them the truth and they thought it was hell." Truman appeared at the rally to stump for the Democratic ticket of John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson and to plug the reelection bid of Rep. W. Pat Jen- Jennings, D-Va. The affair was billed as a five-state rally and the crowd estimate was made by the Washington County sheriff's office. Beer Can Throwers Arrested in Carroll DELPffl-Willard Hall, 23, route 1, and Ralph Godbey, 22, route 4, were arrested > here Friday night with two juvenile boys and tw.6 juvenile girls.

City police and the .s h e r i f f brought the group here and the juveniles were released, to their parents. The men are still in jail. Atomic Plant Still Running OAK RIDGE, Tenn. (AP)-The nation's largest atomic energy plant continued full operation Saturday despite a strike by 2,000 union production and maintenance workers. The Oil, Chemical and Atomic Workers Union Local 9-288, struck the huge gaseous diffusion plant Friday midnight to back up demands for a 28-cent-hourly wage increase. The facility produces fissionable urariium-235 for atomic weapons. At a similar plant at Paducah, Ky., the OCAW was taking a strike vote Saturday, at the end of each of three shifts. The negotiations there, affecting about 1,000 workers, have beei. under way for about three weeks. Supervisory personnel stepped in to operate the Oak Ridge plant as they did in 1954 when the union staged a three-day walkout. Children Beaten Up By Mother NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP)—Four battered young children remained in critical condition here Saturday, the victims of a savage hammer attack by their beautiful, dark-haired mother. Magistrate Clarence F. Miles said Bonnie Prohaska, 30, wife of a prosperous rubber company executive, apparently turned on the children Friday in what was reconstructed as a frantic, screaming, bloody scene in the Prohaskas' home in a stylish residential district. "There was blood everywhere except in the bedrooms," said Miles. ."It was a terrible thing." The .Prohaska children, John, 10; Anna Maria, 8; Mark Raymond, 4Vi and David r 1, underwent surgery throughout the night as doctors worked on their battered heads. Each child suffered a severe skull fracture. Two Improved The two oldest children were reported considerably improved and the two younger children were reported holding their own. "I have learned that Mrs. Pro- liaska had been under a physician's care recently, apparently for emotional trouble," Miles said. "Her husband remained home From work yesterday, then left at three o'clock. When he returned shortly after four, he found the children." Miles said a bloody hammer was found in the bathroom where Anna Maria and Mark Raymond were lying. David was found on the fr,ont room sofa. Officers quoted John, the eldest child,' as saying: "Mama hit us with a hammer." The husband, John, 31, is vice president of the Charleston Rubber Co., owned by his father. After he found the children, officers of the Hanahan district be- n a search for Mrs. Prohaska. Within an hour officers found Mrs. Prohaska, fully dressed and wearing a raincoat, lying in the banks of Goose Creek, about a mile from her home. Miles said she was wet from head to toe and was babbling incoherently. Miles said Mrs. Prohaska, confined to the psychiatric ward of the Medical College of South Carolina, -- was not charged immediately. Where Are Those Two Americans? VIENNA, Austria (AP) - The whereabouts of two Americans who had been held incommunicado .by Soviet authorities for seven weeks was still shrouded in mystery Saturday night. • The Soviet Foreign Office had told the U.S. Embassy in Moscow that Harvey C. Bennett, of Bath, Maine, and Mark I., Kaminsky, of Cass County, Mich!, had been expelled to Czechoslovakia at the Uzhgorod crossing point. The U.S. Embassy "in Prague said the two Americans have not yet contacted American officials there. ' \ "We do not even know whether they have actually crossed the border,", an embassy spokesman said. • Officials at the U.S. Embassy in. Vienna and .the legation in Budapest said they had not heard from Bennett and Kaminsky. There was some speculation here that the two Americans might still be held at Uzhgorod awaiting Czechoslovak clearance to proceed to the West. The Czechs might even take them directly to the frontiers of either West Germany or Austria under escort. Didn't Have To Report .A U.S. Embassy spokesman in Vienna said the two Americans had no instructions to report to U.S. authorities and might not do so on their own. So they might be on this side of the Iron Curtain without knowing that American officials wanted to talk to them. The United States was expected to protest to the Soviet Union against their detention and officials wanted to get a full report from Bennett and Kaminsky before taking any action.

(AP)—Vice President Richard Mi Nixon said Saturday that every day Sen. John F. Kennedy "persists in this frightening foolishness" over Quemoy and Matsu" he increases the risk of war." He also took a crack at what he called his Democratic opponent's ridicule of Nixon's "Kitchen Debate" with Soviet Premier Nikita S. Khrushchev. "I stood up for the United States of America," Nixon declared as an Illinois State Fairground crowd of 20,000 roared approval. Nixon, in a statement read at the fairgrounds, said that every day' Kennedy "persists in this frightening foolishness" over the two islands "he increases the risk of war. "The eiTor Sen. Kennedy makes is to advocate a change in America's policy of firmness in spite of the fact it is a policy which has worked time and again these past eight years," Nixon declared. AttackOn Ndele Not Important LEOPOLDVILLE, the Congo (AP)—A United Nations spokesman expressed sympathy Saturday to Albert Ndele, vice president of the Congo's provisional government, who was beaten and stabbed Friday while a U.N. Ghana soldier looked on. But the spokesman called it an isolated incident and wondered why so much fuss was made about it. Tension rose in the city after the newspaper Courrier d'Afrique published a front-page photograph showing a gang of pro-Communist youths hacking away at the bleeding Ndele with the Ghanaian standing nearby. U. N. spokesman Paul Jankowski of Poland told a news con- i ference, "The United Nations deeply regrets active violence and we express our sympathy to the victims, of such violence." Asked whether this referred explicitly to Ndele, Jankowski replied, "I am authorized to express sympathy." When newsmen pressed him, Jankowski said, "I cannot understand why so much fuss is made about an isolated incident." Knifed In Head Ndele, one of the most capable members of the government commission, was recovering from deep knife wounds in the back of head. Still bleeding and in pain, he told newsmen from his hospital bed that the ci%il police force was Door Open For Change UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (AP) —The United States was understood Saturday to be keeping the door open to enlargement of the 10-nation Disarmament Commit- m M-M MUM _ ^^ tee if U.N. debate should, show a I aiding "supporter ^"deposed"' majority in favor of that. ^ er Patrice Lumumba in a cam . But while the United States might agree to the addition of five more countries to the committee, this did not necessarily mean it would accept all the five that the Soviet Union has proposed to add. The issue will come up soon in the assembly's Political Committee* where a Soviet resolution is pending to put Ghana, India, Indonesia, Mexico and the United Arab Republic on the Disarmament Committee. The Soviet, idea is to supplement the Eastern and Western sides on the negotiating body with a neutral "side of equal strength. The U. S. view, as authoritatively reported, represents a shift from the position taken at the 1959 Geneva foreign ministers' conference of Britain, France, the Soviet Union and the United States. At that conference, the United States agreed to give the Communists straight parity with the Western Allies on a committee to resume disarmament negotiations broke off two year earlier. paign of terror against the gover- ment commission. The police — unlike the army— apparently remain loyal to Lumumba and have been completely inactive in efforts to keep order in the city. This and the passivity of some U. N. troops appeared to encourage the gangs of young Lumumba supporters to increasing acts of violence intended mainly to intimidate Lumumba's political opponents.
