It is referred to by his supporters as Australia's "Little Rock" case. White residents of Little Rock, Ark., have fought the introduction of Negro students into their high school. , Protest to County Twenty - six , residents of Nambucca Heads, a coast resort town in New South Wales, signed a petition Monday to protest against the sale of a house in their town to the aborigine! One of the petitioners bought the house Wednesday. The petition, forwarded to the county government, asserted the sale of the house to an aborigine would .. damage tourist trade and lower land values. ' .

U. N. Secretary General Dag Ham-marskjold would be given a major role. A resolution, agreed on in a secret Arab caucus, mentions no specific deadline for Anglo-American troop evacuation from the trouble areas. Left to Hammarskjold As outlined by a high source, the current 81-mem-ber emergency session of the general assembly would ask Hammarskjold to facilitate the withdrawals, bearing in mind U. N. safeguards against one country's use of subversion and infiltration against an other Hammarskjold would be re quested to make the "neces sary arrangements to make possible early withdrawal of foreign troops," this authoritative source stated. Dulles to Washington Secretary of State John Foster Dulles flew to Washington to consult with President Eisenhower on the plan. At first blush western sources were inclined to agree with the idea, making the proviso they would be opposed if " weasel words " were added. The Russian delegation, which has been demanding immediate troop withdrawals, was deemed certain to go along with the scheme, particularly since it had been approved by its middle eastern partner the United Arab republic of Egypt and Syria. Arab representatives cabled word of the new resolution to their governments back home and awaited instructions, which they hope would arrive by Thursday afternoon. Reference was made in the Continued on page 17, col. 1J was " absolutely shocking and disgusting." Mrs. Badler added: "White people should be educated to realize there is no difference between what a white mother wants for her children and an aboriginal wants for hers." Davis said: "I don't know what the petitioners have against me. My wife was educated at high school with white children and her sister was a trainee nurse at Brisbane hospital with whites." Church leaders in Nambuc ca Heads said they and many other residents in the resort resented the petition. Vow to Move The Davis family vowed they would kep trying to move from their shack in swamp aboriginal reserve. Davis recently was .granted full citizenship rights. All of Australia's aborigines are wards of the government un less they apply for citizenship rights and pass the necessary qualification tests. There are 70,000 full-blood ed and half-caste aborigines in Australia, as against an esti mated 280,000 reported when the white man settled this country in the early 19th century. 1958 BY CHICAGO TRIBUXE SQUARE. CHICAGO 111 J. ILLINOIS COURT FOESI KEEP SENATE BATTLE ALIVE Defeat Move to Table Bill BY WILLARD EDWARDS Chicago Tribune Press Venice) Washington, Aug. 20 Foes of the Supreme court won a yy'n' """tv ctiinnincr Sen ate victory by a vote of 46 to 39 late Wednesday , night. The roll call vote defeated a motion to table a bill sponsored by McClellan D., Mct'lellan John , L. Ark.. The bill provides that the Supreme court may no longer construe, as it has done in the past, any act of Congress to exclude state laws on the same subject unless Congress specifically states such an intention. . ' The action left the measure open to further debate and probable pasage. The Senate voted to adjourn until Thursday noon. . Twenty-seven Republicans and 19 Democrats joined in the majority voje, which was, in effect, a protest against recent court rulings. Fourteen Republicans and 25 Democrats were opposed. Called More Drastic The McClellan measure is more drastic in its impact upon the nation's legal structure than . a previous bill, rejected by a vote of 49 to 41, which gave the high court's supporters a temporary triumph. A bill similar to the Mc Clellan measure was passed by the House July 17 by a 241 to 155 vote. The Senate wrangled for more than 12 hours in a sec ond day of dispute over the Supreme court issue. Tempers flared as Sen. Paul H. Douglas D., 111. proposed to put the Senate on record in favor of the high court's anti-segregation rulings. Parliamentary maneuvers shunted the Douglas proposal temporarily aside but he warned that he would bring up his amendment at a later period.

A T-33 jet trainer carrying two air force officers was struck and shot down by a Falcon missile fired from an F-102 fighter-interceptor plane in what was supposed to be a mock interception, complete in all detail except for actual firing. Take to Parachutes The two officers in the jet trainer, Lieutenants John D. Rice and Raymond Zuhars Jr., saved their lives by taking to parachutes after the missile carried away the tail section of their plane. They drifted j down unhurt, except for minor bruises on landing, while the plane crashed and burned on a farm three miles north of Clinton, Mo. Zuhars, 26, is from'Evansville, Ind. Lieut.

S.Will Agree to Halt of rthicano Tribune Presa Sen ice Washington, Aug. 20 Reports were current in the capi- tai weane s- day night that Lr the United States has de-c i de d on a temporary suspension of atomic weapon tests in the hope that an international ikiiics agreement for a permanent end of the tests can be achieved. The reports were strengthened by Secretary of State John Foster Dulles' sudden return from the United Nations general assembly meeting in New York Wednesday for a 90 minute conference with President Eisenhower. Returns by Plane Dulles returned to New York by plane soon after ward. Informed sources said that an announcement of a tem porary stop by Dulles might strengthen the United States position and be an effective reply to the Russians James C. Hagerty, the Presi dent's press secretary, said in reply to a query that the Presi dent at his press conference earlier Wednesday called the results of the Geneva meeting of scientists studying the prob lem encouraging. While an official report is still being awaited, Hagerty squadron, normally stationed at Duluth, Minn., but temporarily on duty af Richards-Gebaur. The mock interception was carried out under guidance of a ground radar setup which caught the T-33 on its radar screen and guided the F-102 into position where its air borne radar was able to lock onto the target at a distance "of perhaps 40 miles. The Falcon is a guided rocket about five feet long and weighing 100 pounds. Once released it has the ability to seek out its target The firing mechanism " is largely automatic but controlled by safe- guards. SSSSSS one THAN DISMOUNT Atom Tests did not rule out the possibility that it might result in a cessation. Government officials were reluctant to comment publicly, but Rep. Melvin Price D., 111. of the joint congressional atomic energy committee said two or three members of the committee have been predicting a temporary halt of the tests. Sees Announcement Soon Rep. Chet Holifield D., Cal. predicted that an announce ment of the temporary halt would be forthcoming. Sen. Hubert Humphrey D., Minn., chairman of the Senate dis armament subcommittee, said he hopes for a temporary sus pension. The United States, Britain, and Russia were among the nations that sent scientists to the Geneva conference to study the possibilities of halt ing atomic tests. Peels a Mystery Egg! Who Put Philadelphia, Aug. 20 IT) How could a $10 mark be stamped on the white of a newly peeled hard boiled egg? The question arose when 5 year old Susan Sutter sat down to breakfast the other day and spotted the price tag in fairly large size. Susan took the egg to her mother,, who said she hadn't a clew to the mystery. Scientists Take Over i Mrs. "Sutter carried the egg to a veterinarian, Dr. Philip Tubis. Equally in the dark, Dr. Tubis passed the question along to the 95th annual convention of the American Veterinary Medical association. Scientific minds went to work. One scientist in particular, Dr. John E. Martin, a professor of therapeutics at the Univer sity of Pennsylvania veterinary school of medicine, gave it profound thought. He scarcely slept Tuesday night so great was its challenge, he said. ' " , - At breakfast the light dawned on him.

Barriers Lifted Barriers were lifted at all entrances and exits of the toll-way after ceremonies at six different locations, starting at noon near O'Hare Internation al airpor and ending in the ening at a dinner in the Forest Hills country club at Rockford. Gov. Stratton, head ing a caravan of 350 cars bearing officials ' and civic leaders, spoke at each of the locations. Most of the cere monies took place in rain storms.

A Backward Answer This is what he divulged: Calling for a really hard boiled egg, Dr. Martin shelled it. While it was still moist, he pressed it down on a news paper ad with a $10 price in it. He lifted the egg and sure enough there, was the mark It was in reverse printing, but you could hardly tell the difference if you held the egg up side down.

SEVEX CEXTS Jun JUDGE PERRY ISSUES WRIT AGAINST UNION New Hearing Set . for Monday A threatened strike on the Chicago & North Western railway which would have forced 42,000 commuters to seek other means of transportation was averted Wednesday afternoon. Judge Joseph Sam Perry issued a tempoiary restraining order in federal District court prohibiting the' Order of Railroad Telegraphers AFL-CIO from carrying out a strike by its 1,600 members at 7 a. m. Thursday which would have brought North Western's trains to a halt in the nine states it serves. Judge Perry continued a hearing on whether the in junction should be made per manent until 11 a. m. Monday. Says Some May Go Out Outside of court, G. E. Leigh ty, president of the union, indicated that it might not be possible to stop the strike in all states. In court, attornejTs for the union told Judge Perry that setting up a multi-state strike involved a lot of time. Atty. Lester Schoene, representing the union, returned to the court after the hearing, however, and told Judge Perry that the union would " comply fully " with the court's order. Judge Perry originally or dered the North Western to post a $25,000 bond for payment of possible damages to the union later in the event he should rule against the rail road in a subsequent hearing. Bond Is Increased Schoene asked that the bond be raised to $50,000 because the, union has between 50 and 60 persons dispersed over a wide area to direct the strike and they cost the union more than $25,000. Judge Perry raised the bond to $50,000. The North Western filed suit for the injunction claiming that the strike would cost it $500,000 a day in lest revenues and would deprive 80,000 persons daily of transportation. The North Western also has exclusive contracts for delivering material for several highway projects, Attorneys Edgar Vanneman and Robert Russell told the court. Schoene argued that issuing the injunction would do irreparable harm to the union and affect its bargaining rights because it would diminish the effect of a strike threat later. Judge Cites 2 Points In issuing the order Judge Perry said that the public had had insufficient notice to find other means of transportation and that the bargaining rights of the union would not be affected. The union first announced its strike plans Tuesday and notified the railroad Wednesday. The strike threat grew out of a union demand for an amendment to its , contract with the North Western providing that no position in existence on Dec. 3, 1957, would be abolished or discontinued except by agreement between the railroad and the union. This the North Western refused to accept Others Absorb Work Recently it received permis sion to discontinue 123 one- man stations in South Dakota and Iowa from the public utilities commissions there. Their work was absorbed jby central agencies. The North Western contended the union demand was
