Mundt Sees Civil Rights Compromise By G. MILTON KELLY WASHINGTON MV-Sen. Mundt (R-SD> predicted today the civil rights fight in Congress will produce a compromise "for which the South can't vote, but one with which the South can HVP " Mundt' told a reporter he ex-, pects the compromise will take! the form of right-to-vote guarantees for Negroes and other minorities, plus other features, "and to that extent it will be an Eisenhower victory." "I don't think that what they now have before them in the form of the House passed bill is going to be rammed down the throats of Southerners by relentless or roughshod methods," the senator said. * , Mundt said it is too early now to do much speculating about specific terms of a compromise, but predicted it will be reached in time to permit adjournment of Congress by mid-August. Differ Sharply That estimate differed sharply from the opinion express Friday by Sen. Knowland (R-California), who said he thinks the fight over the legislation, together with other unfinished business, will keep the Senate in session until mid-September. Knowland, who is quarterbacking Republican supporters of the measure, said r o u n d-the-clock Senate sessions may be started late next week if a filibuster develops on the preliminary motion to consider the civil rights legislation. He expressed hope that motion can be disposed of within the week, but said several weeks of debate on the bill itself lie ahead. Republicans already have organized for the possible round- the-clock sessions, Sen. Morton (R-Ky) told interviewers in Louisville. He said the 46 GOP senators will be divided into 23 teams and assigned regular tours of duty on the Senate floor. Urges Moderation Mundt, speaking hopefully of a compromise "with which the South can live," said he believes that "in bringing about social reforms, the exercise of moderation is always more effective than the big stick." He said he expects the South's senators will "effect a compro mise that will not be a total defeat for the viewpoint of the South." and that the bill wiU be amended to make it "more palatable" in the Southern states. He said guarantees of the right to vote are "the minimum" for which civil rights advocates should settle. "It is impossible to settle for less than the constitutional concept that all citizens are entitled to their franchise," he said. As Mundt phrased it, the compromise probably would embrace "the right to vote, plus; and to that extent it will be an Eisenhower victory. Beyond that, the compromise would have elements of a Southern success/' y % Mrs. Laura Mackey Of Wall Lake Has Her 92nd Birthday (TlmM Herald Newi S.rviee) WALL LAKE - Mattie and Maude Keiser, Mrs. Agnes Weitzel, Mrs. Wayne Ogren, Minnie Quirk, Mrs. Merle Quirk and Don aid and Mrs. Dan Pagel and daughters spent Friday afternoon with Mrs. Laura Mackey and help ed celebrate her 92nd birthday.

W) — A chipper Harry Truman prepared to turn over to the government today a 21 million dollar monument to his two teirns in the White House. It's a crescent -shaped building of Indiana limestone containing 3Vi million official documents and uncounted personal mementoes of his nearly eight yearjs as President. Keen Anticipation The 73-year-old forrrier chief executive obviously looked forward with keenest anticipation to the ceremony this afternoon when the Harry S. Truman Library and Museum will be dedicated as a national monument. \ And he made no attempt to hide the relish with which |ie took part in preliminary events- Twice Friday, laughing and joking with the donors, he accepted gifts for the museum. One was a piano—a duplicate of one made for- the White House by the Baldwin Piano Co. He recalled that a local newsman had mistakenly identified one of his favorite songs as the "Mohawk Waltz." "It was the Blackhawk Waltz," he laughed. "It was a song writ- Get Ready to Fire 'Diablo' By JACK LEFLER ATOMIC TEST SITE, New m- With the biggest atomic explosion of the six-year test series in the United States accomplished, the Nevada test organization today turned its attention tc the scheduled firing of the long-postponed "diablo" device July 12. "Diablo" a relative y weak nuclear weapon, is the one that failed to explode June 28 because of a power failure. Following on the schedule is the July 10 firing of the first air-to-air rocket with an atomic warhead. The missile will be launched from a plane. Its target will be a predetermined point in the air. The radioactive ait masses which developed from the mushroom cloud erupting from Friday's explosion were moving across Utah today. The test organization said they are "depositing only minute and insignificant fallout." The only report of offsite damage by the blast's shock wave came from the Groom mine, 25 miles northeast of the detonation site. The test organization said it had been advised that windows were broken, window frames, doors and casings blown in and metal buildings bulged. Dr. G. M. Johnson, jest director, announced the explosion was "well over" the power of |.he previous record for a device s«|t off on this testing ground. That probably would make it between three and four times the power of the World War II atom bpnibs. ten during the Blackhawk War in which Abraham Lincoln served as a captain. Here, I'll show you what it's like." He did — playing the tune through -— following it with a minuet. 121 Million Value Like the piano, the Truman library building itself is a gift. Its cost, 1*4 million dollars, was raised by public subscription. The value placed on the grounds and the building's contents run the total to 21 million. Flying over the building at today's ceremony will be the flag that flew over the inauguration stand in Washington when Truman took the oath of office in 1949. Yesterday, as he has many times before, Truman recalled it was "an inauguration a lot of folks said would never take place." Joining him for the ceremony will be the only other living ex- President, Herbert Hoover; the widow of President Franklin D. Roosevelt; the chief justice and an associate justice of the United States; six U.S. senators; four congressmen; eight governors; and two men who were members of Truman's cabinet. 2,000 Invited The invited guests number 2,000, and Truman shook the hands of more than 500 of them at aj reception Friday night. For to-j day's ceremony, it's anticipated,! there will be, in addition, from 10 i to 15 thousand spectators. Standing room for them has been provided on as yet unlandscaped grounds between the front entrance of the library and U. S. Highway 24, which flanks the structure. Earl Warren, chief justice of the United States, will be the principal speaker. Truman will present his official papers and mementoes. Basil O'Connor, president of the Harry S. Truman Library Corp., will make the presentation of the building. GOP, Demos Strengthen Forces for Coming Campaign— Iowa Political Pot Begins to Simmer With By DWIGHT McCORMACK DES MOINES 'Wl—Iowa Republicans and Democrats are cooking up bad medicine for each other, for the 1958 November general election campaign, still about ( 16 months away. 1 Meanwhile, the political pot is beginning to simmer with announcements of candidacies for next June's primary election. And meetings with a political flavor are picking up. Rebuilding Job Republican State Chairman Louis L. Jurgemcyer said at Clinton: "We plan to rebuild from the bottom up. We want to see to it that we have a good, strong precinct and finance organization, with.a very broad base. We plan some new emphasis and some new techniques. But it is too early yet for a decision on just what they will be. "There will be nothing particularly new, different or dramatic. But we feel that in the last few years there has been a tendency to grow away from the needs and views at theprecinct level. This is normal and happens in political parties from time to time. We will try to re-establish ourselves as immediately as contacts can be made. "At the state level, we plan to reorganize and strengthen our headquarters. How wejlo that depends on the money to do it and the needs and wants as developed by conferences. Seek Grassroots Advice * "We nave organized a statewide committee with the purpose of getting the best advice we can 'from the grassroots. This is Intended to mean that when we strengthen and rebuild our party it will serve {he needs of the organization better. The committee is not permanent, but it was called on 'to meet a current problem." Democratic State Chairman Jake More related at Des Moines-: "We have started an intensive drive to organize the precincts. We will get new precinct committeemen or committeewomen where there are vacancies, or the present ones are inactive. "We have employed Bruce Bowersox of Fayette on a full-time basis and his principal work will be at the precinct level. Bowersox was an instructor at Winfield High School in the last school'year. Plan Meetings "We plan district and county meetings sdon, but they will not start until after next Aug. 1. We already have started a drive by letter and telephone calls to get out candidates for the Legislature. Our most important assignment Tjnrn Herald, Carroll, l«wa Saturday, July «, 19S7 for the next campaign •will be bo get the strongest possible candidates for state representative and state senator. There is additional interest in legislative positions, due to the election of Democratic Gov. Herschel Loveless last year, and the higher salary legislators will be paid beginning with the next regular session." The 1957 Legislature passed an act providing that those who are elected to the Legislature in 1958 will get 130 a day for both a regular or a special session. The salary now is $2,000 for a regular session, and normally that means the pay is at the rate of $20 a day for a regular or special session. Earlier this week the Rev. Robert N. D. Yoak, 42, of Stuart, announced his candidacy for the Democratic nomination for 7th District Congress. He is a Congregational minister. Mr. Yoak announced for the same (nomination last year, but did not follow through. The only Democratic member of the Iowa delegation in Congress now is Rep. Merwin Coad of Boone, a Christian Church pastor who represents tKfe 8th District. Last April, State Sen. Jacob Grimslead (R - Lake Mills) announced he will seek the-Republican nomination for.the 6th District Congress. He f ig 51, a farm operator, and - has served in the Senate the last three sessions. Clear Lake Event In addition to the forthcoming meeting of the new Republican advisory, committee, and the Democratic district and county meetings, there will be the annual Governor's Days observance at Clear Lake. This Will be the first year since 1938 that Iowa has had a Democrat chief executive at Governor's Days time. The observance is always the occasion pf considerable Republican political speculation and maneuvering of possible candidates in the following year's elections. The event July 26-28 will take on added discussions .by legislators this year. That is because of the prospects for a special session in September. Any special session is expected to be for purposes of some tax rate changes, and reenactment of capital improvement appropriations for state institutions and agencies. Loveless vetoed the Republican- controlled session tax program containing a combination of tax rates, because he insisted that the sales tax go back from Wi per cent on July 1. He also a vetoed a series of capital improvements measures, ' The governor has indicated that he would ask that the individual and corporation income tax rates be put back to where they were before the July 1 reduction, and that capital improvements be reenacted "as needed." Brownie Scouts Elect Their Officers (Time* Herald New* Service) LANESBORO — T&e Brownie.* held a weekly meeting at the home of Phyllis Harms.

Fifty-nine older high school boys who signed up with the Carroll office of the Iowa State Employment Service for summer farm work have finished their first job of the season, that of first cutting of alfalfa, Alvan H. Cox, farm placement representative, reported Saturday. Of the 59 boys engaged in alfalfa cutting, 15 were placed through the employment office in Carroll and 44 through volunteer farm labor representatives i(J the four counties of this area — Carroll, Crawford, Greene and Sac. Intermittent rains concentrated alfalfa cutting into a few days this year, Mr. Cox said.

I have been worked for evil, but mostly I have been worked for good. I can still be worked for evil, but each day it grows more difficult to misuse me. j I am at once a tool and a living force. If you use me wisely, I am a tool in your employ. If you misuse me, my double edge will injure or destroy you. If you do not use me, I am a force that works against the aims and purposes that animate your business. A force that sends customers elsewhere to be the customers of others. 4 \ have brought clean food, healthful warmth, music, convenience, comfort into a hundred million homes. I have built great factories and peopled them with happy men and women who love their labor I create. * I laugh at tariffs and remake laws. I find new markets andgather the^goods of the world into a handful of printed pages. I am either the friend or the foe to Competition -so he who uses me first is both lucky and wise. I spell service, economy and abundance and opportunity, for I am the one and only univer­ sal'alphabet. I am the ambassador of civilization, the hand maiden of science, and the father of invention. I speak a thousand languages and have a million voices. -\ l have peopled the prairie, and with my aid, commerce has laid twin rails of gleaming steel in a gridiron across the continent and stretched a network of copper into the far corners of the globe; I am the friend of humanity - for I have filled the commoner's life-with'a hundred comforts denied the king of yesterday. I have scaled the walls of the farmer's isolation and linked him to the world of outer interests. I am a bridge that spans all distances and brings the whole world to your door, ready and eager to buy your wares. I have made merchant princes out of corner shopkeepers and piled the wealth of Monte Cristo into the laps of those who know my power. I fathered the daily newspaper. Where it cost^cents to hire me yesterday it costs quarters to hire me today, and will cost dollars tomorrow, But whosoever uses me had best have sense; for I repay ignorance with loss and wisdom with the wealth of Croesus. I live in every spoken word and printed line in every thought that moves man to action and every deed that displays character. t AM ADVERTISING; The abovemessage wai printed first by the New York American in 1913* It's message applies to newspaper advertising today.
