Each Evening for Itt Cent* Por Week / * Cdbf'f Soviet Leaders Why Russian Submarines Sold to Egypt Plot to Build Up Limited Mediterranean Naval Power Suspected By. JOHN M. H1GHTOWER WASHINGTON WV-Russia may be well started on the way to be coming a limited naval power in the eastern Mediterranean. The suspicion is growing in offi cial quarters here that this is the real meaning behind Russia's recently disclosed sale to Egypt of three submarines. One of Egypt's purposes in ob taining the undersea, craft may lie in using them to try to prevent passage of ships through the Gulf of Aqaba to the Israeli port of Eilat. Egypt and other Arab states contend that the gulf is Arab territorial water and that shipping to Israel can be legiti mately stopped. Could Lay Mines Two of the submarines, which arrived some time ago at the port of Alexandria, are described by authorities here as capable of lay ing mines. The ultimate Egyptian intention may be to try to mine the waters at the entrance to the gutf, which opens off the Red Sea But what intrigues and worries American experts even more is what may be behind Russia's sale of the underwater cr,aft. In the view of responsible aU' thorities who have analyzed the deal, possession and operation of the submarines by Egypt will mean that Egypt will have to build up a submarine operating base possibly at Alexandria. , Russian Equipped With President Nasser's Egyp lian government already closely linked with the Soviet Union, such a base would be Russian equipped It could easily be supplied with a large store of repair parts and with other materials and the fuel suitable for submarine operations. Once such a base is established it could readily be used by the Soviets' own submarine^ as well as those under the Egyptian flag. Russian technicians could be available there to service visiting Soviet underwater vessels. I In such a case Washington offi-' cials would expect that such visits would be carried out with considerable frequency. The presence of the Soviet submarines in Mediterranean waters would then become a factor which strategic planners of the Western powers would have to take constantly into consideration. The possibility Si Russia's scoring such a strategic gain is considered especially interesting at this time in the light of speculation over the possible effect on Soviet policies of the shakeup in Communist leadership in Moscow. In a statement yesterday the State Department took note of hopeful expressions, particularly in Europe, that the greater power now apparently possessed by Communist party boss Nikita Khrushchev will mean a further development of "soft" policies on the part of the Soviet Union. MAN OF MANY MOODS . , Defense Secretary Charles E. Wilson runs the emotional gamut during a qucstion-and answer session •with newsmen at the Pentagon. Starting off with a big smile (top), Wilson shifts into a pensive mood; lights a cigarette to help his thinking along; and winds up scratching his car as he ponders a puzzling query. . Joan McCall To Teach at Colton, Calif. Boy Dragged To Death in A Teen War 7 HOBART, Ind. m — A teen-age gang war ended early Saturday when a 17-year-old boy was dragged to his death under the car of a rival group. Police said Larry Blair, East Gary, Ind., was dragged for a block under a car filler 1 with young boys that sped out of a drive-in restaurant parking lot. Five of Blair's companions were held for questioning. Police searched lor the six boys in the death car. Authorities said the "war" be gan at a dance Friday night in nearby Portage, where one mem ber of Blair's gang fought with a youth in a rival faction. The other boy, police said, picked up five friends and chased the Blair car to Hobart, "playing tag" by bumping the two vehicles, together on the busy highway. Police said Blair's gang got out and tried to enter the other auto -mobile when they reached the drive-in parking lot, but the other six youths locked the doors and rolled up the windows. Blair was standing in front of the vehicle when it suddenly started up, knocking him down and dragging him away as it sped off. Government Files Brief in Girard Case Contends He Has No Right to Go Free Pending Final Trial Decision WASHINGTON liB-The government contended Saturday that soldier William S. Girard has no right to go free while the Supreme Court considers whether he should be tried by U.S. or Japanese authorities. Arrest Three Youths After Highspeed Chase DES MOINES m — Three Des Moines youths were arrested early Saturday following an early morning chase at speeds up to 90 miles Presbyterian Groups Will Attend Synod Representatives of the Carroll The high court will hear oral | Presbyterian Church will attend arguments on the case Monday U.S. officials had agreed to turn the Army specialist third class from Ottawa, 111., over to the Japanese for trial on a charge of killing a Japanese woman who was scavenging for scrap metal on an Army firing range. But attorneys for Girard obtained an order from the U.S. District Court here forbidding the Army to release him to Japanese authorities. However, the same court refused to direct the Army to set Girard free from Army custody. 'No Valid Reason* On this side issue, the govern-! ment in a brief filed Saturday told the Supreme Court Girard has no valid reason to object to being held by the Army at Camp Whittington in Japan. In fact, the brief said, if he were "to leave the bast he could at any time be taken into custody by Japanese authorities—the very custody from which he seeks to require the United States to protect! will accompany Rev. Schiel to Joan McCall, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Claud McCall of Carroll, has signed a contract to teach sophomore and freshman English in the high school at Colton, Calif., the coming year. Colton, which is three miles from San Bernardino, I'has a high school enrollment of 1,800. Miss McCall was a member of the high school faculty at Decorah last year. She is spending the summer in California, where she is a hostess at a mountain resort near San Bernardino.' Traffic Death Rate at About Five an Hour By The Associated Press Death on the nation's highways climbed with grim regularity Saturday, but at a pace well below that predicted for the long holiday weekend by safety officials. As Americans took to the road in the second half of the Independence Day holiday the National Safety Council said death figures were "encouragingly low" and "well below" its estimate that 535 persons would die during the four- day period. At least 232 traffic deaths have been counted. Drownings totaled 131 and there- were 52 deaths reported in miscellaneous accidents. Although traffic deaths swerved sharply upward at times Friday, the overall trend was about five an hour, a little higher during evening hours. One accident alone in Michigan Friday claimed seven lives, the highest number so far. during the holiday. B -V w - EARL HALL The National Safety Council said j E*tor. JMason City Globe Gazette that despite spurts "traffic deaths meetings of the Synod of Iowa, Synodical Society, and Synod Westminster Fellowships at Iowa State College, Ames, Monday through Thursday.

Police said that during the chase a car driven by Michael P. Wary- woda, 20, ran two red lights and narrowly missed several parked cars. The chase ended when the car pulled behind a barn on a farm near Norwalk, Warywoda and Jeffrey Lewis, 18, escaped on foot, but officers arrested them later at Warywoda's home. Robert G. Titus, 17, was taken into custody after the car stopped. He was released later. Warywoda was charged with reckless driving, speeding and running two stop signs. Lewis was charged with allowing a licensed person to drive in a reckless manner. him." The Justice Department, in effect, said the District Court was right in denying Girard a writ of habeaus corpus to free him. However, the government still contends—and will argue next week— that the lower court was wrong in Girard See Page 7 Storm Area Is Grateful To Red Cross (Kdltor'i Not*: The following- »rtlel* I* hy in I own editor who ttilK iruk made an on-the- spot iurre.v of the Gulf Count area umaihed by hurricane Audrey.) low an Who Gained Fame in Canada Dies LETHBRIDGE, Alta. 1* — Dr. Charles Sherwood Noble, 84, . of Nobleford, one of Alberta's most famous agriculturists and inventor of farm machinery, died Friday.

UP! — An Air Force helicopter carried me low over the brackish water spilled on Cameron Parish by Hurricane Audrey. . . My seatmates included Harry Martin, Washington, D.C., director of public information for the American Red Cross. We set down in the midst of ill smelling debris a few feet from a huge Gulf tugboat which had been lifted out of its moorings and cast athwart a paved highway by last week's tidal wave. This, as much as anything I've seen, reflected the unbelievable might of the wind and water combination. Try to Restore Town Three blocks away was the parish courthouse — a substantially built two-story structure which alone wealhered the storm. We found local townsmen working with Red Cross and government representatives to restore life in what for several days after the hurricane was a dead community. What'used to be the treasurer's office is now a medical center. In the recorder's office is a commissary containing just about every item of emergency foodstuff you could imagine. The former courtroom was converted to shelter use and for executive offices. According to Mrs. Iva Free, parish demonstration agent, only two families never left Cameron. Early this week a dozen were back in their homes, but wholly ,without utilities. All wells must be freedof salt water and contamination. Tent Communities Several tent communities are to be set up soon as basic services can be restored. So far as possible Cameron's own people —it formerly had LOOO—will be employed by Red Cross and government to put things in readiness for the two or three hundred new homes required. My visits with storm victims here, as was the case last year when 1 reported on California's devastating floods at Yuba City and Humboldt County, have impressed upon me a heart-wavming appreciation of the merciful help received from an always generous •American public through the Red Cross. lt»s the difference between fac« ing life with hope and facing life in utter hopelessness many have told me in their own way.

Toastmasters will be Harold Pride, manager of the ISC Memorial Union, who spoke recently at a meeting of Presbyterian Men in Carroll, and David Cassat, Dubuque businessman and former president of the National Estimate of Gas Tax Drop Is Borne Out DES MOINES Uh — The Iowa Good Roads Assn. said Saturday that state treasury figures bear out an association estimate that Iowa would have a drop in gasoline tax revenue as compared with the previous year. Gerald Bogan, IGRA executive secretory, issued a statement in which he Said recent published reports on Iowa's available road funds "tend to give an erroneous" impression . . . because they have used 'gross income' figures..." Bogan said the state treasurer's report "shows that the net gasoline tax going to the road use tax fund dropped from $36,855,256 in fiscal 1956 to $36,499,054 during the fiscal period ended June 30, 1957— a reduction of $356,202." , While the reduction "is not significant," Bogan said, "it is important to note that this is not a record." Taking all road fund allocations into consideration, Bogan said, the grand total for the 1956-57 fiscal year was $97,414,238 or some $27,000 under fiscal 1955-56. ASSIGNED TO CAPITAL . . .

Roy and Dale Sing for Crusade NEW YORK UP) - A standing- room-only crowd of 19.200 heard Evangelist Billy Graham and Actress Dale Evans in Madison Square Garden Friday night. Miss Evans, wife of cowboy star Roy Rogers, sang a medley of gospel songs and told how she "accepted Christ" nine years ago. She said she and her family wouldn't be able to live in a land of make-believe like Hollywood if they didn't have Christ. Miss Evans has five adopted children and two of her own. The children include a Korean and an American Indian. Before beginning his sermon to the huge throng, Graham asked all those under 25 to stand. An estimated 60 per cent of the. crowd arose. The evangelist's subject was "youth aflame." His text was Ezekiel 22:30—"and I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but 1 found none." Graham said God is searching for young people to serve him. There were 576 "decisions for Christ" Friday night. That brought the total for the 50 meetings in the Garden to 27,582. Attendance now totals 847,800. to be known as the Apartments. The new structure, when completed, will include 118 units for year around living and 72 of the units are expected to be ready by next spring. Kelly said the apartment units will be sold before or during construction and a manager will maintain the beach and grounds. All apartments will face the lake front. Dock and boat facilities will be provided. Constructive contracts are scheduled for letting July 11 with construction .to start in the fall. NARCOTICS STOLEN ARNOLDS PARK i/fl - State agents have been called in to trace thieves who stole a quantity of narcotics from the L. E. Williams drugstore here. The intruders, who broke into the store during the holiday, took only $30 in cash and ignored a substantial amount of money in the cash register. Compliance With Beer Laws 'Better' DES MOINES WV-The chairman of the Iowa Beer Permit Board said Saturday there are indications that "We are getting better compliance with the beer laws in the state." Secretary of State Melvin D. Synhorst, the board chairman, was referring to statistics showing a substantial decrease in the number of beer license revocations in the 1957 fiscal year. Officers Doing Duty "The figures lead us to assume," Synhorst continued, "that local officials are doing their duty where they find violations. AU of the revocations were instituted locally. "Our investigator reports he always gets excellent cooperation from local officials in enforcement and in obtaining revocations. That appears to be another reason for the decline." The 1957 fiscal year report shows there were 21 revocations. For the fiscal 1956 period the total was 31. The great majority of the revocations were of permits held by taverns. There were 17 such revocations in fiscal 1957, and 26 in the previous year. There was one revocation of a club beer permit in the 1957 period, and two in the 1956 year. Also, there were three revocations each year of licenses held by groceries. Needs 2 Permits The fiscal year runs from July 1 of one year through June 30 of the next year. When a permit is revoked locally, the board takes similar action. A licensee must Beer See Page 7 Ant-i-Smoking Survey in Norway OSLO W — Norway, which is planning a countrywide anti-smoking campaign, is trying to find out why people start smoking in the first place. Dr. Fredrik Mellbye of the Social Department's Board of Health said questionaires have been distributed among school children, asking why and when they started smoking, if they were persiiaded to it by others, how much they are smoking and so on. - Charges Plot to Seize Party, Government Red Boss Lashes Out at Malenkov, Molotov and Kaganovich LONDON l/ft-Nikita Khrushchev Saturday publicly denounced three ousted Kremlin leaders as "cunning" plotters who planned to seize control of the Soviet Communist Party and government. The Soviet Communist boss further accused Georgi Malenkov, V. M. Molotov and Lazar Kaganovich /ormer first deputy premiers, of opposing all government measures "for easing world tension and strengthening peace throughout the world." He called Dmitri T. Shepiloy, fourth member of the deposed antiparty group "the most shameless double-dealing individual." Speaks at Leningrad Khrushchev made his accusations in a speech in Leningrad, the first time he has publicly condemned the ousted men since they were expelled from party and gov* ernment posts earlier this week. London monitors who heard a report of the speech broadcast by ; Moscow radio first reported that Khrushchev had singled out Mal­ enkov as "the worst" of the group. Later, however, the monitors said Khrushchev had not in fact made such a statement. They attributed their error to "a mishearing." The mistake was caught, the monitors said, when their recording of the speech was being replayed for a final check on translation details. The original Moscow broadcast was in the Russian language. Earlier In the day, the Soviet Union informed the West the Kremlin shakeup would cause no changes in its "peace-loving foreign policy." Moscow Radio replied in a righteous tone to an American challenge to the Russians to follow up the purge of Stalinist elements with measures "to promote peace and stability." " The broadcast beamed to North America said Soviet policy all along has been "to live peacefully side by side with all- countries <and to do everything possible to improve our relations and cooperation with the U.S.A. since promotion of world peace depends largely on that." The broadcast said Georgi Mal­ enkov, Lazar Kaganovich and V. M. Molotov—who'were purged from the Kremlin leadership thii week—had opposed the "Soviet policy for peace" and tried to hamper its implementation, but their plans were frustrated. Policy Unchanged "The conclusion is clear," said Moscow Radio. "The Spviet Union's peace-loving foreign policy remains unchanged. And he, assured it will be pursued still more actively and still more perseveringly." The Moscow commentator said he was answering the U.S. State Department's announcement that it would watch to see what effect the changes in the Kremlin leadership have on Russian policy. From Warsaw came an account of a stormy 35-hour debate in the Kremlin preceding the purge of Stalinist leaders The argument was said to have begun with former foreign minister Molotov^ challenging Soviet Communist party boss Nikita Khrushchev's Russia See Page 7 FIRE DESTROYS BARN NORWALK W-Fire apparently caused by spontaneous combustion in stored hay destroyed a barn on the Russell Lucas farm near Norwalk Friday evening.

Fort Dodge Youth Dies in Car Accident POCAHONTAS Mft-Harlan Pingel, 19, of Fort Dodge was killed early Saturday when the car in which he and seven other youths were riding ran off Highway 17 about 10 miles north of here. Five other Fort Dodge youths and a Des Moines youth were injured, but none was believed seriously hurt. Sheriff Kenneth Richardson and State Highway Patrolman Virgil Ludwig said the car in which the youths were riding, ran off the right side of the highway. They said the car then ran back across to the left shoulder where it rolled over at least three times before coming to rest in a ditch 670 feet from where it first left the highway. Hospitalized at Fort Dodge in fair condition were Allen Peterson, 17, Merle Knutson, 18, and William Jones, 19.
