Only in Italy, where police estimated at least 200 persons had died, were temperatures in the 99's forecast. Elsewhere weathermen reported temperatures dropping rapidly as the cool air front muved Inland. Italy was hardest hit by the scorching sun which sent the mercury soaring to record highs. The heat turned three homes for the aged in Milan into death pits for 65 men and women Tuesday. Shocked civic authorities ordered air conditioning equipment installed in the homes as soon as possible. Coming after the deaths of 16 other aged in homes in Venice an Bologna, the Milan tragedy •parked demands for reapprasial of the buildings housing old folks.

Civil Rights Bill Issues WASHINGTON (UP)—Summary of main issues in the Senate debate on civil rights: Purpose of Bill To protect the civil rights of persons within the jurisdiction of the United States. Proponents contend its primary purpose is to protect voting rights of Negroes in the South. Opponents claim its lang uage is broad enough to permit use of troops to enforce racial integration in schools and other public places. Basis For Fight Supporters contend the legislation is necessary for protection of constitutional rights of all Americans regardless of race. Opponents contend it gives the federal government, in the person of the attorney general, "autocratic" powers to enforce civil rights as he see fit and break down the sou them social system based on separation of races. Jury Trial The bill would empower the attorney general, through civil law procedure, to obtain federal court injunctions against violations or anticipated v i o I a 11 ons of 'civil rights. P-Qrsons disregarding such injunctions would be liable lo a tine and fail sentence by a federal judge without a jury trial. Appon- ents contend this would be perverting the civil laws to deprive persons of their constitutional right of jury trial. House Okehs U. S. Surplus Barter Plan WASHINGTON CUP)—The House has approved an administration 'e- quest for authority to barter American farm surpluses' to Iron Cutain. counties for strategic" materials. It took the action Thusday in passing a compromise $1,300,000,)00 bill to revive and- extend for another year the farm surplus disposal program which lapsed June 30. The legislation would permit such barter deals with all Communist countries except Soviet Russia, Communist China and countries controlled by Communist China. The measure was a compromise between a Senate bill w-iiich contained the new bartering authority in somewhat broadpr form, and a House bill.which did not. The bill now goes to the Senate for final congressional action. Senate approval would allow the administration to complete the second half of a controversial 95-million-dollar agreement to provide Communist Poland with loans and sale of American term surpluses for Polish currency. The bill would authorize the Agriculture Department to sell an additional one billion dollars worth of American farm surpluses for fc True Life Adventures HEADS, HE WINS.

A downpour early today flooded sections of south and southwest Topeka, Kan., forcing evacuation of some families in the Knollwood area. The rain blocked a highway south of Topeka and sent the Shutvganunga River climbing to about three-quarters bankfull. -A number of tornado funnels were sighted in Colorado during the night, but there were no re- potts of ' damage. However, the storm front piled hail stones a foot deep near Simla and Calhan, Colo., and LaJunta, Colo., was doused by three quarters of an inch of rain. Heavy rain also blocked roads at West Kanorado, Kan., and lightning accompanying the storm knocked out telephone communications .in the community. Elsewhere; rainfall was scattered and mostly light, although locally heavier rain' deposited 1.12 inches at Cape Hatteras, N.C., and .38 inches at Memphis, Tenn. Cool temperatures prevailed north of the Ohio River from the Mississippi to the Atlantic Coast. But a fresh wave of hot, humid western Minnesota and threatened to spread eastward.

' • The foreign currency siles, officials .said, would enable the gov- ernment to sell Poland 46 million dollars worth of surplus American wheat ar.d cotton for Polish zlottys, as provid-ed by the U. S.-Polish agreement. Tile sale of surpluses for foreign currencies to Soviet-dominated areas will continu elo be prohibited. Poland qualified only because the State Department' ruled that country now qualities as friendly since it has moved somewhat away from the Kremlin. You can't see it! NEW audivox MICROPAC HEARING AID!
