Carroll Daily Times Herald Vol. 88— No. 161 Carroll, Iowa, Wednesday, July 10, 1957—Eight Pages Each Evening for 38 Centt Per Week 7e Delivered by Carrier Boy in Carroll *f m Slitfle) \ 1,1 •H, - >' :"t J Copy Award Carroll County New Type Road Project Russell Talks To President On Rights Bill Southern . Forces Leader Discusses Amendments to Clarify Measure WASHINGTON W-Sen. Russell (D-Ga) said after a conference with President Eisenhower Wednesday that Eisenhower's "mind is not closed to amendments which would clarify" the administration's, civil rights bill. Russell, quarterbacking Southern forces opposed to the legislation in the Senate, told newsmen Eisenhower is against enactment of any "punitive" measure. Eisenhower and Russell talked over the bill for about 50 minutes at the White House. Although Russell said Eisenhower has an open mind with respect to the possibility of clarifying amendments, the senator refused to express an opinion as to whether the administration will back such amendments. "The President's mind is open," Russell said. "It is not closed to amendments which would clarify the bill.". Hints of Compromise In advance of Russell's conference with Eisenhower there were hints at the Senate that sponsors of the administration measure probably will consider compromises. The White House conference was set up with only a few minutes advance public notice. Eisenhower told his news conference last week he would be glad to talk over the case with Russell, who contends the legislation is "vicious." Eisenhower himself has described the civil rights measure as "moderate," but said last week there were certain phrases he found hard to understand. Eisenhower was reported Tuesday to have talked over with Atty. Gen. Brownell the language the President had rated obscure. After that session administration backers said Eisenhower held to his original view that the proposal is "moderate" and desirable. Door Not Closed Nevertheless sponsors of the legislation were hinting Wednesday at possible future compromises, amid reports that Eisenhower himself had not closed the door against "clarifying" revisions of the House-passed bill. The current fight in the Senate —short of a full-scale filibuster so far—is over a motion to bring the bill itself up for floor action. With Southern Democrats ready to resume their assault on the measure in lengthy speeches, there were clear indications Eisenhower administration officials will be willing to talk about changes in the bill when the Senate begins actual work on it. Language Too Stringent Among others, Vice President Nixon, was reported to feel the Russell . . See Page 5 DUSTING OFF AN OLD ONE . . .

The excavations led to the uncovering of the lost tomb of the 13th dynasty King Amni Aarau. The statues are small compared with the usually massive statuary of ancient Egypt. * Governor Views Stiffer Traffic Law Penalties DES MOINES UPV—Gov. Herschel Loveless indicated Wednesday he has in mind stiffer penalties for traffic law violators and more suspensions of drivers licenses for his traffic safety program.

The Weather in Carroll (Bully T«mp«iratur«it Cnurttigy Iowa X*ul)|lo Service Company) Yesterday's high 90 Yesterday's low —,. 65 At 7 a.m. today — 7ft At W a.m. today'.. 85 Weather A Year Ago— Skies ware mostly cloudy, with rain in the afternoon, a year, ago today. Temperatures rose from 65 Topeka Area Damaged by Flash Floods * TOPEKA, Kan. Flash floods hit the Topeka area early Wednesday driving scores of persons'from their. homes, including Mrs. Georgia Neese Clark Gray, former treasurer of the United States, and her husband, Andrew. Police reported an elderly couple earlier reported missing in Topeka, was found safe with friends. They fled when their basement apartment was flooded. Hardest hit, apparently, was Richland, Kan., 18 miles south of Topeka, hometown of the Grays, in the wake of rains which unofficially were reported to have raised to more than 7 inches in places. Gray reported that most of the town's 250 residents had been evacuated from their homes and had taken refuge in the bank and store operated by the Grays. A foot of water from the Wake- rusa River was swirling down the main street, and parts of the town were inundated to a depth of four feet. Drinking water and electricity were unavailable. Water stood four inches deep in the Gray's home. In Topeka dozens of homes were flooded and police called for all available boats to help rescue operations. At Abilene, 80 miles west of Topeka in the Kansas River Valley, a freak cloudburst dumped an estimated 10 inches of rain on a single farm and sent a wall of water rushing across U.S. Highway 40 so suddenly it swept five passing cars into a ditch. None of the occupants, all military personnel en route from their homes in Abilene to duty at nearby Ft. Riley, were injured. Highway Patrolman Tom Nold said the freak cloudburst fell only on about three acres of the Ivan Kelly farm, between Abilene and Chapman, 12 miles east. He told his news conference he plans to call for justices of peace and police court officials throughout the state to attend eight district meetings next fall to discuss traffic laws and enforcement. "Possibly we should mete out stiffer penalties for traffic law violators," he said. The governor also Called attention to a 1955 act providing for suspension for five to 30 days of licenses of drivers who have had three speeding or two reckless driving convictions against them in a 12 month peiod. "We hope to emphasize this at the district meetings," the governor said. "We want to be sure that all convictions are reported so that the safety department can issue the suspensions. The public should be aware of this law." Loveless said that prior to the district meetings, he plans to call late in September, a conference of mayors, councilmen, sheriffs and others to be held in Des Moines. This would be a follow-up to Tuesday's statewide Women's Traffic Safety conference in Des Moines. In that connection, the governor commented he thought that the Tuesday meeting "was rather successful, but we must wait and see what happens back home." The governor rioted that several recent traffic fatalities have occurred on secondary roads and said that the state highway patrol probably will be asked to "branch put" onto the secondary roads when possible. Schenkelbergs Now Living in California Mr. and Mrs. Al W. Schenkelberg and children, Sandy, Alan, Scott and Mary Frances, who left Carroll about two weeks ago to live in California, are now lo- 'cated at Granada Hills, where their address is 11400 Babbitt. Mr. Schenkelberg is working in the offices of the San Fernando Electric Manufacturing Company. He was associated here with his father, William P. Schenkelberg, and brother, Paul, in the ownership of the Schenkelberg Implement Company. Khrushchev to Defend Unity Of Socialists Visit of Soviet Leaders in Prague of Great Political Significance PRAGUE, Czechoslovakia l/R— Nikita Khrushchev promised Czechoslovakia I'uesday that the split in the Communist bloc which "imperialist reaction attempted in Hungary will never happen." The Soviet Communist Partyj chief spoke to a huge crowd at the Prague railroad, station for- 1 merly named for Woodrow' Wilson. Khruschev and Premier Bulganin had just completed • a 24-hour I showed the real character of im- whistlestop train, tour across Czechoslovakia. "The Hungarian events clearly showed the real character of imperialist designs," Khrushchev declared. "Our opponents, »our enemies, very much wanted to subvert the unity of the Socialist camp, to split it apart and then one by one to crush the peoples of the democratic order. But this, comrades, will never happen v "Never will it be possible for anybody to shake and violate our great commonwealth. The people of socialist countries will understand that in fraternal unity and solidarity lie the most reliable guarantees of freedom and independence." Welcoming the visitors, Czech President Antonin Zapotocky predicted their talks in Prague would "serve to tighten the unity and solidarity" of the entire Communist bloc. Zapotocky openly endorsed Khrushchev's purge of his rivals in the Kremlin leadership, saying the Soviet party's Central Committee meeting which took the action last month 'showed the world how crazy and hopeless are all attempts to weaken our unity or Khrushchev ....

Arrangements have been made for a delegation of the Carroll representatives to be in Fort Dodge for the "kick-off dinner" Thursday evening. Famous Movie Pair. Enjoy Screaming at Each Other NEW YORK m — Producer Michael Todd and his expectant wife, 1 actress Elizabeth Taylor, came home from a European trip Wednesday cooing like newlyweds and pooh-poohing columnists' reports of spats on the trip. Miss Taylor said she was particularly upset by one report that "Mike hit me in the stomach with a large champagne bottle." That story, she said, stemmed from a minor incident at a party in London. "A large woman fell against the back of my chair and knocked the wind out of me—that's alllt was," she explained, Commenting on other reports of frigtion between ithenu the actress asserted:. • ! "Neither one of us is. Inhibited,, So naturally we speak freely to each other. We also love each oth-, er. We have a lot of fun fighting." Todd chimed in to add: "We have more fun screaming at each other." Asked about a" story that he had spent $200,000 on the London party. Todd replied, "My son is liable to read hpw much I spent and I'll be in trouble with him." The son is by a former marriage. , „; The couple exchanged loving glances, words and handclasps as they were interviewed aboard* the French liner Uberte. Miss. Taylor 's baby is due in October wni she plans to enter « New York hospital fo rthe event. r f odd said he'hopea to find a home withfo%n hwr!s drive of New York but indicated he might go as far as Cape Cod, School Heads to Study Absence of Improvement Funds DES MOINES <#*-What to do about the absence of new capital improvements appropriations for state-supported educational institutions was the scheduled subject of a discussion Wednesday afternoon by key personnel from the schools and probably some members of the State Board of Regents. "We want to see where we are, what can be done about it, and analyze the situation," said David Dancer, board secretary. "We want to be ready to present a proposed program to a special legislative session if there is one." Gov. Herschel Loveless vetoed earlier this year a series of capital improvements measures, including one for about 11 million dollars for the three state educational institutions. He did so at the time he also vetoed the 1957 Legislature's tax program. He has indicated he will call a special session for September, and ask re-enactment of capital improvement bills "as needed." Delegations, from the State University of Iowa, Iowa State College, and Iowa State Teachers College were expected for the meeting, ASC Office Gives Wool PaymentRate Payments will be made soon to Carroll County farmers who participated in the government's wool incentive program for the 1956 wool marketing year which ended on March 31, 1957, it was announced Wednesday by William D. Mcshek, office manager of the county ASC committee. The payment rate on shorn wool will be 40 per cent of the dollar returns which participating producers received from the sale of wool in the 1956 marketing year. The payment rate on sales of unshorn lambs, to compensate for the wool on them, will be 71 cents per hundredweight of live animals sold. Payments to be mads in this country for the 1956 marketing year will total around $14,000. Claims filed in this county consist of 259 for shorn wool incentive payments and 132 for wool on unshorn lambs. Payments made by the county ASC office last year in the 1955 wool program totaled $15,872.32 on 270 claims for shorn wool and 120 claims for unshorn wool on lambs and yearlings sold for slaughter. The amount of the checks will be net after deductions of one cent per pound from shorn wool payments and five cents per hundredweight for unshorn lambs, as authorized in a referendum in 1955. The deductions go into a national fund for the promotion of the wool and sheep industry. The "shorn wool payment rate of 40 per cent for the 1956 marketing year was determined on the basis of the difference between the average price received by producers in the actual sale of their wool and the 62-cent per pound incentive level. Since the incentive payment rale is applied to the price at which the participating producer sold, it is to the producer's advantage to get the best possible price for his wool. The 40 per cent rate means that the producer will receive a gross incentive payment of $4 for every $10 he received in the sale of his wool above marketing charges. The lamb payment rate of 71 cents per hundred weight for the 1956 marketing year program was determined on the average weight of wool per hundred pounds of lamb, the value of lamb wool in relation to shorn wool, and the average shorn wool incentive payment per 'pound. The incentive payment rates for the 1955 marketing year program were 44.9 per cent for shorn wool and 77 cents per hundred weight on lambs sold for slaughter. The fact that the 1955 program rates were higher than those for the 1956 program payments, while the incentive level for both years was 62 cents, indicates that the average selling price received by producers in the 1956 marketing year was higher than in the 1955 marketing year. , WOOD TECHNOLOGIST Paul Daniel, who was graduated in June from Iowa State CpUege, Ames, with a Bachelor of Science degree In wood utilization, has accepted a position as wood technologist for the Sherwin - Williams Company in Chicago. He is a son of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Daniel, 215 South Walnut Street, Carroll, surprisingly small needle-nose delta-wing craft with four powerful jet engines.! "As of right now the B58 is the fastest jet bomber in the world," said Lt. Gen. C. S. Irvine, Air Force deputy chief of staff for materiel. "The Hustler represents one of the most significant forward steps in the history of military aviation —and through it we are made aware of some mighty possibilities." > Frank W. Davis, chief engineer i at Fort Worth for Convair division! of General Dynamics Corp., put it! this way: "The magnitude of advance in the B58 is best emphasized by the fact that it.provides a greater increment in top speed advantage over the latest operation bomber than that bomber provided over the Wright Brothers airplane." Twice Speed of Sound Since the newest operational jet bomber, the eight-engine Boeing B52, files a good 600 miles an hour faster than the Wright airplane of half a century ago. Davis' remark ],would indicate that the B58 hurtles along at more than 1,200 miles an hour or close to twice the speed of sound. Development of a chemical fuel which could propel the B58 around the world without refueling also was revealed Tuesday. The 01in~ Mathieson Chemical Co. announced in Niagara Falls, N.Y., that the fuel, known as Hef-2 would increase the range of jet engines by 40 per cent. The announcement said Olin Mathieson had perfected production of the fuel, made from a borax base, and that the company would build a 3fi million dollar plant at Model City, N.Y., to produce it. Unusual Features Perhaps the most unusual feature of the B58. in outward appearance, is the long, slim, disposable "pod" — a tank streamlined to a point at each end- suspended underneath the airplane. August C. Esenwein, Convair vice president and manager of the Fort Worth plant, said the pod could be a devastating bomb, a battery of cameras, or electronic counter-measures equipment—devices to nullify enemy defences. "The pod under the plane allows the B58 to return home clean without the waste volume contained in an empty bomb bay and without the waste weight and volume contained in an empty fuel tank," Davis explained. Variety of Missions Davis said the pod concept provides for a variety of missions depending upon range, size of bomb, or the type of reconnaissance required. "In effect the bomb bay can, be exactly tailored to fit the largest bomb with no excess volume and weight to push around, Tie said. The B58 carries a crew of only three men — pilot, navigator-bombardier, and defensive systems operator. lt is only 95 feet long, has a 55-foot span of its triangular wing, and its sharply-swept tail fin stands some 31 feet off the_ground_. Almond Winner of Primary in Virginia RICHMOND, Va. —Atty Gen. J. Lindsay Almond Jr. emerged Wednesday an easy winner in the Democratic primary race for governor, defeating Richmond attorney Howard H, Carwil 108,613 to 29,682, with returns from 1.561 of 1,905 precincts. The one-sidedness of primary race had been expected by political observers. Carwile, often an independent candidate for various state and local offices, was in his first race in the Democratic primary, and ran up his largest vote total. Gov. Thomas B, Stanley under Virginia law can not succeed himself. Almond has the endorsement of the Byrd-led Democratic organization. The size of his vote was not of the proportions the organization would have liked to see in view of the threat this year from the Republicans. •« In November Almond, 59, will face State Sen. Ted Dalton, 56, who many believe is the most per* sonable and effective vote-getter Virginia Republicans have ever bad to carry their standard. Claim Progress In Smog Battle At Los Angeles LOS ANGELES Mn—This metropolitan giant of the West Wednesday can claim substantial progress in its nine-year battle against the smog which had threatened to strangle it. The Los Angeles Air Pollution Control District said the smog- prociucing elements of industry and rubbish incineration have been largely controlled or will be, upon completion of programs now nearing conclusion. This, said the annual report of control officer S. Smith Griswold, leaves only automobile exhaust as a major source of foul smelling, eye-burning, throat - scratching smog. And auto exhaust, said the APCD, will be a critical problem for at least another four years. Cost of the anti-smog battle since it was launched in 1948 was estimated at $72,770,000 in the report, issued Tuesday. Industry has invested 50 millions in devices to control smoke and fumes. The APCD has spent $10,320,000 on its control program. Research expenditures by other agencies amount to $12,450,000. Has the amount of smog actually been reduced? There has not been a smog alert so far this year. At thi$ time last year there had been three. There were 10 alerts in 1956, compared with 15 in 1955. An alert is called when the amount of ozone in the air reaches .50 part per million parts of air. The ozone content is considered a measure of air pollution. The APCD said there have been fewer' days of heavy eye irritation below alert level this year than in 1956. Station Operator Injured in Holdup CORNING m - Otto Sunder- strom, a filling station onwer, was reported in good condition at a hospital Wednesday where he was treated for head lacerations received in a holdup attempt'Tues­ day night, Sunderstrom said a man and a blonde woman drove up to h.[s station and ordered some gas. The filling station owner said the man then followed him into the station and demanded the receipts. Sun­ derstrom said the man slugged him several times with the butt of a revolver before he had a chance to reply. Harvey Lewis Biddison, 31, and his wife, Geneva, were, arrested at their home in Villisca about 3Vi hours after the holcjup and returned here for questioning. Officers reported they found three .32 caliber revolvers and a .30 caliber rifle, all loaded, in Biddison's car and that the handle of one gun bore what appeared to be bloodstains. Biddison told officers he moved into the house only a few days ago] and had worked at the Rath Packing Co. in Waterloo until about a month ago, The amount of the loss at the filling station was not determined immediately pending a check of station receipts. Will Surface Four Miles of County Roads State to Pay Biggest Share of Test With Asphaltie Process A new asphaltie concrete* road- surfacing project is slated for four miles of Carroll County roads this fall, the Board of Supervisors and County Engineer J. F.- Matter announced Wednesday. The $100,000 project will be financed jointly by the Iowa, State Highway Commission and Carroll County and will cost the county only $40,000, Charles ,A. Neumayer, chairman of the' board, said. Carroll was the second of two Iowa counties approved by the Iowa Highway Research Board for the new asphaltic-atomization process on fine materials, Mr, Maher said. Another experimental project is being conducted in Ringgold County near Mount Ayr* 1 The project involves special new equipment to inject asphalt with specially built atomizers into the mixture of fine sand. The sand to be used on the Car* roll County project will be secured from the Paul Schumacher farm located about six miles southeast of Carroll. Two miles of the Coon Rapids- Glidden road will be surfaced just north of Coon Rapids and two miles of the Willey-Country Club road will be surfaced just north of Willey, Mr. Maher said. Mark Morris, director of the Iowa Highway Research Board, said bids would be received on the project on July 23, and pending favorable bids the work is expected to be completed this fall. Ladix Csanyi, professor of civil engineering at Iowa State College, has conducted laboratory tests involving treatment of fine materials by the atomization process during the past four years. He will make road tests on the projects in . Carroll and Ringgold counties* The Highway Research Board, which approved the project, includes L. M. Clauson, deputy chief: engineer; Bert Meyers, materials engineer; R. C. Boyd, maintenance engineer-? all of the Iowai State Highway Commission; F. M. Dawson, dean of engineering at the State University of Iowa; J. F. Downie Smith,' dean of en-' gineering at Iowa State College; and six Iowa county engineers.' J The estimated cost of $25 ,000 per mile is about $5,000 per mile? less than the cost of current as­ phaltie surfacing, Maher explained. That involves use of the stand-: ard 22 foot width for secondary roads, he said. Many engineers, road officials and contractors from throughout the state are expected to inspect the new method of constructing asphaltie concrete roads. The cury rent estimated cost is expected to be reduced when more contractors adopt the new type of construction and that will result in considerable savings on future surfacing projects, Maher said. The county engineer's office at Carroll will assist the Iowa Highway Research Board in the supervision and inspection of the new project.
