Herald Vol; 88—No. 159 Carroll, Iowa, Monday, July 8, 1957—Eight Paget Delivered by Cantor Boy In 'Carroll'' E«oh Evening for M Centa Per Week 7< Mai)* Copy More Charges Pile Up Against Malenkov Group m a • _ I mm m ' ' — - - - — - • _ i ; :—~ : ; — — • Senate Awaits Filibuster by South Leaders Plan Around the Clock Session on Debate Over Civil Rights By JAMES MARLOW Associated Press News Analyst WASHINGTON <ffi — This is an ABC on the Southern filibuster shaping up in the Senate against the civil' rights bill which the Eisenhower administration says is intended to protect Negroes' voting rights in the South. Southerners say it is so "cunningly" written it could be used to force racial integration. A filibuster's purpose is to prevent passage of a bill by talking against it until its supporters give. up. Southerners can make two filibusters: (1) against a motion to bring up the bill and, if they lose on this, then (2> against the bill itself. They will probably make their main pitch on the. second. It's less exhausting. There are two ways to break a filibuster: 1. By keeping the Senate in session around the clock' until the Southerners are worn out. They could keep going for months if they were allowed to go home every night at 5 o'clock. 2. By invoking cloture, which means voting to shut off debate. This can be done* only on a two- thirds vote of the full Senate: 64 of the 96 members. It's hard to get. Some of those outside the South may want to filibuster someday. For perhaps a week, as a warm- up, Southerners may filibuster against a motion to bring up the bill. You can see why this, if the Southerners tried to go all-out, is exhausting: On a filibuster against a motion each senator is limited to two speeches. About 20 Southerners are expected to take part in the filibuster. If they wanted to talk against the motion itself for weeks then- Each in turn would have to talk until he was literally ready to drop, not once but twice. And all the time he talked a senator would have to be on his feet. If he sat down to rest he'd lose the floor and his speech would be over. If the Southerners try a full­ blown filibuster against the motion, Sen. Knowland of California, Senate Republican leader, may try to kill it by wearing them out in around-the-clock session. He could probably force such a session, since it requires only a majority vote and not the hard-to- get two-thirds, vote which is necessary to shut off debate If, under the punishing pressure of endless sessions, the Southern ers abandoned their fight against the motion to bring up the bill, then the bill itself would be up for debate. A brand new filibuster — this time against the bill itself—could start. From a physical standpoint this could 'be easier on the Southerners for a number of reasons. Any senator could offer as many Senate See Page 7 Paul Anneberg Family Ends European Sojourn Dr. and Mrs. Paul Anneberg and children, David, Bethany, Spencer and Lee, relumed home Sunday from their European trip, the objective of which was Rotary International at Lucerne, Switzerland, which Dr. Anneberg attended as the delegate from the Carroll Rotary Club.

Waiting for them there was a German Volkswagen, a Micro bus in which the family traveled during most of their lour. Dr. Anneberg had purchased the bus through the AAA before leaving the United States. A 10-day trip from LeHavre to Lucerne took the Annebergs through France, Belgium, Holland and Western Germany. After leaving Lucerne, they visited Mrs. Allen Anneberg at Crailsheim, Germany, for 'three days. They were unable to see Capt. Anneberg, who was on maneuvers at the time. Continuing to Copenhagen, Denmark, they visited the Pedersen family. Mr. Pedersen is a cousin of Wilmer Petersen of Harlan. Two members of the Pedersen family, Lesa, and her grandfather, are presently visiting in Harlan, having left Copenhagen two days after the Annebergs were there. The Anneberg family also visited Mr. and Mrs. Hans Buhl. Mr. Buhl, had spent. several months in Carroll, Harlan and vicinity, having attended the wedding of Mr. and Mrs. H. Rand Petersen of Perry in Carroll. Mrs. Petersen is the former Mary Louise Anneberg. The Annebergs left Copenhagen for Stockholm, Sweden, and Oslo and Bergen, Norway. Crossing the North Sea to Edinburgh, Scotland, they drove down through England, where they visited friends with whom they had become acquainted at Rotary International. They were guests of Mr. and Mrs. T.E. Smiddy at Doncaster, where Mr. Smiddy operates The Chocolate Box, a candy store. In the village of Wroxton, near Banbury, they visited at the farm home of Mr. and Mrs. Jasper Pearson, who had also been at Rotary International. The family went from there to London, sailing from Southampton June 27 and arriving in New York July 2. While in New York, they visited Mrs. Anneberg's cousin, Major and Mrs. Allen Spencer. They drove home from New York in their Micro bus, with a stop at Washington, D. C, where they visited Mrs. Anneberg's cousin and niece, Marian Seeley and Eleanor Norton. On arriving home, they were welcomed by Mrs. Anneberg's parents, Mr. and Mrs. L. R. Spencer of Iowa City, who arrived here Friday and are leaving for Lake Okoboji Tuesday.

DES MOINES Wl - The Iowa State Commerce Commission announced Monday it has voted unanimously to cancel the warehouse license of the D. E. Benton Co. at Westside, Iowa. The commission said the license was revoked effective June 30 after the commission ruled that inspections by its Warehouse Division in April showed the warehouse firm did not have a sufficient amount of corn in storage to cover outstanding warehouse receipts. In a summary of its hearing on the matter, the commission said Otis J. Baker of its warehduse division testified that on April 2 he found only 43,944 bushels of corn in the warehouse although receipts outstanding covered 57,575 bushels of corn. Including a disparity in corn covered by cancelled receipts and records of corn actually shipped, the commission said, there was "a total shortage of 32,646 bushels of corn at the time of inspection." Watsons and Jensen Team On Gag Panel A new farm family is coming to Carroll. Fred and Marian Bright and their family of two girls, two boys, a duck and a dog are moving in today and will appear as a weekly feature in the Daily Times Herald, beginning with this issue. The Brights are a typical farm family in typical rural surroundings on a typical farm called "Bright Acres." Their trials and tribulations are not so typical, however, as the entire family becomes involved in humorous situations which will make up the weekly series. Easy-Going, Forgetful Fred Bright, the father, is the easy-going forgetful type nearing the 50-year mark in age. He has a glowing sense of humor and is known as "Friendly Fred •Bright." To his neighbors he has one-drawback, however, in that he is inclined to be lenient about disciplining the children. Marian Bright, the mother, is the guiding light for the family. She makes up for her husband's lenient nature about disciplining the children. She is a good housekeeper and cook, sews exceptionally well and can drive the tractor and car, if necessary. Her family can tell that she is mad if she calls them by their full names. She worries about her weight. Twins are 15 * . The twins, William and Lillian, are 15 years old. William's friends call him Bill and his mother calls him Willie. He is a sophomore in high school, actively engaged in 4-H work and is a member of the Gag Team See Page 7 DENOUNCE PURGED RED OWIOMW.

Extra Effort Sharply Cuts Traffic Deaths Violent Deaths Over Holiday Total 727 in Nation; Car Mishaps Low By The Associated Press Violent deaths killed at least 727 persons during the long Independence Day holiday period. As always, traffic accidents accounted for the greatest portion of the staggering toll, but in this holiday period the toll came far below the predicted 535. Late reports increased the count slightly, showing there were at least 423 persons killed in motor vehicle accidents between 6 p.m. (local time) Wednesday and midnight Sunday. Drownings during the 102-hour period took 205 lives and another 99 died in miscellaneous accidents. The relatively low traffic toll evoked this comment from Ned H. Dearborn, president of the National Safety Council: "Drivers and traffic enforcement agencies now have demonstrated that extra traffic volume and danger can be offset by extra care and effort. Motorists and traffic officers deserve a big pat on the back for a splendid job of efficient teamwork. Such an achievement just can't help but make things, safer on the highways the whole j drivers will be at the wheel in year round." The highway fatalities compared to the record traffic toll for a Fourth of July period of 491 set during the four-day holiday in 1955. The over-all total compared to 805 accidental deaths in a three- day Fourth of July holiday observance in 1955, a record for the period. The all-time record in accidents of all types is 884, set during a four-day Christmas holiday period in 1956. The total included 706 traffic fatalities, also ar all-time high for any holiday. The traffic toll for the one-day observance last Fourth of July was 137. Seventy-seven persons drowned and 39 others were killed in miscellaneous accidents for a total if 253. This year's traffic total compared to 378 recorded during a non holiday period last month, covering 102 hours from 6 p.m. Wednesday, June 19, to midnight Sunday, June 23. The survey by the Associated Press, made for comparison purposes, also showed 146 drownings and 110 deaths in other types,of accidents. The .over-all total was 642. Traffic deaths during the first five months this year have averaged 95 a day. One death from fireworks was reported during the holiday period, the same number as reported in 1956 and 1955. The high since World War II was 6 in 1946. Two of the worst highway accidents during the long holiday period occurred Sunday, killing 16 persons. Nine persons lost their lives in a two-car crash near Oxford, Miss., and another head-on crash near Saugus, Calif., killed seven persons. California led the states in traffic fatalities with 50, with New York's 31 second high. Only three states — Delaware, Nevada and Rhode Island—reported no highway deaths. CITY CORN . . .

Saturday's attendance exceeded the 1,000 mark with a total of 1,134 making a record of nearly 3,000 for the weekend. The actual weekend figure was 2,974. 'New Look 1 Planned for GOP in Iowa By HARRISON WEBER Iowa Daily Press Assn. Writer DES MOINES - The Iowa Republican party under the guidance of State Chairman L. L. Jurgemeyer is taking on a "new look." The Clinton lawyer hopes "effective planning" will rejuvenate the Iowa G.O.P. and wipe out Democratic inroads made in the last election. "What we want to do is make the Republican party as responsive to the needs of the times as we can possibly make it. In 1958 we want to fight the 1958 campaign and solve the problems of the Iowa community in 1958," Jurgemeyer said. Backbone of this "new look" is an advisory committe consisting of chairmen and vice chairmen from the ten most populous counties and four representatives from each of the state's eight congressional districts. This committee met in Des Moines recently to thresh over party matters. Jurgemeyer believes that in reorganizing the approach on party organization, money matters and organization materials "we could make a tremendous amount of mistakes if we don't consult on a local level." "We want an intensive program for all our people who work in the party from the precinct worker to the state committee. We want Today is the last day for voting; everyone who does any work in ASC Township Elections Close JAYCEES MEET EARLY Because of the hall game Wednesday night, t h e Jaycee meeting will be held in the Chamber of Commerce room at 7 p.m. and will be dismissed in time for members to attend the game. A candidate for "Miss Carroll"," plans for the coming membership drive, and preparations for the state meeting at Fairfield in August will be discussed, in annual township elections for members of the Carroll County Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation Committee. Voters may return their marked ballots to the ASC office in the Cochran building before closing time at 5 p.m. or by mail if postmarked before midnight Monday. Ballots will be counted Wednesday morning by an election tabulation committee composed of o- seph Gute, Glidden; Joseph Loef- felholtz, Carroll; and Herman Sonksen, Manning. Three- community committee members and two alternates are to be elected in each township. The person receiving the highest number of votes in each township will automatically become a delegate to the county convention, for the party to know his job and to Weber .See Page 8 school and general public levels. For about seven hours, the 600 women will be guided in their planning for future action by 23 Iowa workshop leaders and by National Safety Council and Iowa safety officials. The workshop leaders were appointed by Gov. Herschel Loveless. Contemplated action on the elementary school level concentrates on reducing the number of bicycle accidents by increasing the number of elementary schools haying integrated safety procedures. Bicycle accidents claimed the lives of 12 Iowa children last year, Other suggested action includes bicycle licensing and safety inspection plus testing of bicycle owners' knowledge of traffic rules and their riding skill. The introduction of driver education courses in every Iowa high school and the promoting of teen age safe driving clubs is the chief goal of the proposal secondary school safety program. More than one-third of Iowa's 919 high schools now offer courses of driver edU' cation. The activities of teenage clubs now include the distribution of safe driving cartoons and signs. The Hampton club drove voters to the polls on election day as a special project and the Boone Teenage club holds a kangaroo court for youngsters violating safety rules. •Safety at the general public lev el involves co-operation among civic organizations and municipal officials for increased traffic enforcement and speed reduction. It also seeks to promote beneficial safety legislation formation of local safety organizations and local traffic inventories, Gov. Herschel Loveless will welcome the 600 representatives. Before workshop discussions, the women will hear Mrs. Agnes Beaton, director of women's activities for the automotive safety foundation in Washington, D.C. and Miss Jean Mullane of the Kansas City, Mo., Safety Council. Russell I. Brown, newly-appointed acting state safety commissioner, will preside at the conference. Alice Mills, National Safety Council, will act as conference consultant. Paul Jones, of the National Safety Council, will conclude the conference.

Headquarters of the State Society for Crippled Children are at the State University* of Iowa, Iowa City, New Leaders Make Tour of Soviet States Stalin's Former Right Hand Man Accused of Forgery Plot By ROY ESSOYAN MOSCOW l/ft-Ominous-sounding charges piled up Monday against former Premier Georgi Malenkov and the so-called antiparty group ousted in the latest Kremlin purge. But Communist Party boss N. S. Khrushchev and Premier Nikolai Bulganin flew off to Red-ruled Czechoslovakia in an atmosphere of confidence and gaiety. The latest charge against Mai* enkov came from a Leningrad party leader who accused Stalin's former right hand man of trying to force him to sign a forgery. This was only one voice in a swelling chorus of condemnation which already has branded Malenkov the chief organizer of Stalin's 1949 Leningrade purge. For participation in that, a group of security officials were executed in December 1954. The Communist parties of the Soviet orbit joined the chorus of damnation. In Prague, with Khrushchev and Bulganin due, the official party newspaper Rude Pravo hailed "the liquidation of the antiparty group" headed by Malenkov and V. M. Molotov. It added: "The Soviet comrades come to a country which will never leave the barricades of communism, where the Red flag is raised by the Soviet Union. . . Our meetings with the Soviet leaders will result in absolute agreements.which will demonstrate a strengthening of the partnership of the Socialist states on all fundamental questions." Czechoslovakia's C o m m u n ist leadership has been considered the most persistently Stalinist of the entire East European bloc. Originally, Bulganin and Khrushchev were to have gone to Prague by train, a 36-hour trip* They shifted plans and went by plane,.a matter of a few hours. They may stop over in Warsaw. Prague Radio said they are due in Prague Tuesday. With the Soviet leaders was their security chief, Gen. Ivan A. Serov. Seeing them off at Moscow Airport were most of the members of the newly expanded Presidium which rules the Soviet Party: Former economic czar Mikhail G. Pervuk- hin, dismissed as a deputy premier and demited from full to alternate member of the presidium in the purge, was among those on hand, but he was the only one of the purge targets present. Khrushchev and Bulganin went down the line shaking hands and chatting cheerily before their departure. Behind them in Moscow, the party piled up its case against Mal­ enkov, Molotov, Lazar Kaganovich and the other targets of the purge. Former President Nikolai Shver* nik joined Khrushchev in the top- level condemnation. In the wake of this, a Leningrade party official insisted Malenkov tried to force him to be party to a forgery. The alleged coercion attempt took place in Leningrad in 1949 and apparently was part of the case in which several top Communists were illegally executed, Lavrentry P. Beria and Victor Abakumov, one of Beria's main assistants in the Soviet secret police, were subsequently shot for their part in framing the case.
