Vol. 88—No. 162 Carroll, Iowa, Thursday, July 11, 1957—Twelve Paged Dellvernd by Carrier Boy In Carroll m± Bach Evening for 35 Cent* Pet: Week. / » single Turned Trial Aga Khan III Rich Moslem Potentate Dies Glamorous Figure on Inter n a t i o n a I Scene Is Stricken at Age of 79 GENEVA, Switzerland WB-The Aga Khan III. a wealthy potentate, to whdhr 20 million Ismaila Moslems paid spiritual homage, died Thursday. He was 79. A glamorous figure on the international scene for many years, the Aga Khan succumbed to a sudden weakening of the heart during the night. He had been suffering from heart trouble since 1952. He was known as a sportsman with an ardent' interest in race horses, a r devotee of luxurious living, and a man with an eye for a beautiful woman. But he was also interested in affairs of state—and once served as president of the League of Nations. He once expressed his love of material pleasures in these words: "Have fun, it's later than you think." But of his devotion to his Moslem faith: "Each Friday, like every good Moslem, 1 spend an hour in meditation and prayer. That is my most beautiful hour." Heir Apparent Prince Aly. Khan, 46, has generally been regarded as the heir- apparent, but some doubt recently was expressed as to whether he or Prince Sadruddin, 24, the Aga's Harvard-educated younger son, would be named. Th Aga was said to have been disturbed about Aly's playboy activities. Aly is the former husband of Hollywood actress Rita Hay worth. Present at the bedside when death came was the Aga Khan's wife—his fourth—and both sons. Sadruddin is planning to marry Nina Dyer, a London model. The wedding had been set for Monday. Escaped Heat The Aga Khan was flown to Geneva from Paris on June 18 to escape a heat spell which contributed to his deteriorating condition. His weight had dropped to 132 pounds—half of that in the days when he was weighed by his subjects against gold, platinum or diamonds, on his various anniversaries. The moneys value went to the Aga Khan's many charities. His family had gathered- at his villa in the suburb of Versoix when Aga Khan See Page 11 A MAN AND HIS HOSS . . .

Orders Trial of Hoffa to Proceed WASHINGTON un - U. S. District Judge Burnita S. Matthews Thursday ordered the bribery trial of union boss James R. Hoffa to proceed but granted a mistrial to Hoffa's codefendant, Miami attorney Hyman I. Fischbach. The mistrial for Fischbach was granted because of a heart ailment suffered hy Fischbach's counsel, Daniel P. Maher. The government asked for the mistrial order. Both Hoffa and Fisphbach objected. li-TJhia Is the.fourth week of the Hoffa-Fischbach trial on charges they bribed a Senate Rackets Committee investigator, • John Cye Ghiasty, to feed Hoffa ( data from committee files.

Writer DES MOINES — If a special session of the legislature is called this fall, there is a possibility that special elections might be necessary twice to fill vacancies. For example, in the 25th Senatorial District (Johnson and Iowa counties) there is good reason to believed that Sen. D. C- Nolan, Republican floor leader from Iowa City, might be appointed to a federal judgeship in Iowa, thus creating a vacancy. Rep. . Scott Swisher, Democrat, Iowa City, would no doubt run for the Senate seat. Some experts on election laws bejieve that if Swisher decided to run for the Upper chamber that he.could still, retain his seat in the House pending the outcome of the race. Naturally, if he were elected to the Senate, Swisher would have to resign from the lower chamber since no official can hold two positions. Experts in this field point out that several legislators in the past ran for lieutenant governor and still held onto their seats in the legislature pending the outcome of the race. The last to do this was Sen. George O'Malley, Democrat, Des Moines. A similar situation exists in Dubuque county where Sen. Arnold Utzig, Democrat, Dubuque, resigned to accept a post on the State Parole Board. Both Dubuque county representatives in the lower chamber, Andrew Frommelt and John L. Duffy, both Democrats, would probably be in contention for the vacancy if a special session were called by Governor Loveless. The governor has stated that he plans to give the lawmakers* about 30 days advance notice in calling a special session for the'solons to act on the tax situation. Thus, it is possible that a special election might be run off to fill a vacancy and that a second special election Weber ...... Se Page 10. Forecast Rosy Crops For Farmers in Iowa Storm Lake Woman Killed at Crossing STORM LAKE Iflt-Mrs. George Wareham, about 84, Storm Lake, was killed early Thursday when struck by an Illinois-Central train engine at a crossing here. Police said Mrs. Wareham was walking across the tracks at the time and apparently didn't see the train. She was thrown about SO feel. DES MOINES Iowa farmers j enjoyed rosy crop forecasts Thursday with estimated corn production that makes them national leaders and predictions of a sensational increase in the yield of oats. The outlook for corn is for a 15- million bushel increase over last year while estimated oats production runs more than 100 million bushels higher than the 1956 figure. This picture was indicated Wednesday by the monthly government crop report basod on July 1 conditions. The Iowa corn output is expected to exceed 536 million bushels on a reduced acreage. The prospective yield of 53 bushels an acre is estimated at a total of 536,731,000 bushels on 10,127,000 acres. This compares with a harvest of 521,679,000 bushels last year for an average of 51 bushels an acre on 10,229,000 acres. This year's Iowa oats planting is placed at 5,308,000 acres with an estimated total of 244,168,000 bushels at an average of 46 bushels an acre. This is 70 per cent more than last year when 143,665,000 bushels were harvested. The 1957 corn production estimate given by the Iowa Crop and Livestock Reporting Service is three per cent greater than a year ago but two per cent under the 1946-55 average of 544,574,000 bushels. As a result of early cool weather about 60 per cent of the corn acreage was "laid-by" as of July 8, compared with nearly 100 per cent last year. The estimated oats production is said to be a near record and is 11 per cent above the 10-year.av­ erage. The outlook on soybeans is for a six per cent increase over last year's record acreage. The crop agency said it is expected to total 2,708,000 acres as compared with 2,545,000 acres in 1956. Other crop prospects given by the reporting service: The highest production of hay on record: 7,405,000 tons from 3,668,000 acres, averaging more than two tons an acre. Due to decrease in acreages, below production expected on wheat and flaxseed. * Pasture conditions on July 1 were reported at 97 per cent of normal. The first ,estimate of soybean, sorghum and potato production will be as of Aug. 1.

No Child in Potenza to Be Without Watermelon DENVER (fl — The miracle at P.otenza — that's what Louis Santangelo likes to call his experience one summer night in Italy In 1904, He's never forgotten this story^ It was at the Feast of St. R'occa, patron saint of Potenza in southern Italy. Santangelo, then 7, and his family watched hungrily as happy hundreds crowded into a tiny churchyard for songs and meals of watermelon. Louis' father was in New York City, struggling to set up a bakery shop, The youngster's mouth watered* at the sight of the watermelon'.,!, -n' iH .'**?; "Buy me some,", he asked his, grandfather. •Jhe old man; > thinking qfe tlie dandelions and coarse corn bread thai was »U he .'ffl^iftmUiiM swered |adly: "We'd' better go/'* Louis ,m gofc up to go, Just then a large, ripe watermelon rolled to hii ieatr grandfather called. No one took nqtice. The family divided the melon. Louis vowed that he would repay his miracle at Potenza a hundredfold—"Someday, when I have money." That year, with his mother and baby sister, he moved to Denver. Today Louis is a prosperous owner of a downtown typewriter shop. He and his American-born wife have four children—Louis, 38, office manager; Robert, 34, an engineer; Don, 26 with the U.S. Air Force in Germany, and Julianne, m v' . . , .^s Next /Tuesday, Mr. and Mrs. Santangelo plan la leave for Potenza, where the Feast of St. Roc- CQ will be held Aug. 17.

Johnston of Texas said Thursday talk of a possible compromise in the Senate on the civil rights controversy is "both premature and inaccurate." Republican sponsored, however, moved toward narrowing the enforcement provisions of the* bill- backed by the Eisenhower administration and already passed by the House—to the single field of protecting Negro and minority voting rights. Such a move would be designed to meet the objections of Southerners that the current bill would permit the attorney general to use troops if he thought it necessary to enforce racial integration in schools a#d other public places. Sen. Francis Case (R-SD) said he is drafting an amendment to limit the enforcement provisions to the protection of voting rights Sens. Clifford Case (R-NJ) and Kuchel (R-Calif) said in separate interviews they support that idea in principle. Convene Early The Senate convened an hour and a half ahead of its usual starting time in this fourth day of debate on a Republican move to call the bill formally before the Senate. Johnson did not rule out the possibility of compromise, although he told the Senate he knows of no current efforts in that direction "nor do I consider the study of this bill as being intended for compromise purposes." "This discussion (of compro-; mlse) arises, in my opinion, because the debate has been conducted on a high plane, free of rancor and bitterness," Johnson said. "Senators are debating the issues—and the debate should be studied carefully. "There is no way to predict the outcome at the present time." Clarence Mitchell, director of the local office of the National 1 Assn. for the Advancement of Coli ored People (NAACP), said he had sent a wire to Senate Majority Leader Knowland Sen. Douglas i<D-Ill», another chief backer, saying that "this legislation in the Senate ....... See Page 10 Entry List Swells for 'M/ss Carroll' Pagent Halverson Group Leader at Iowa School Session ,B.

An appropriation was made to help pay registration fees of Carroll Jaycees who attend the meeting at Fairfield, Last night's meeting conducted by DwTtex Hinson, preildenLwas called at 7 p.m. and dismissed early because of the ball game at Merchants Park, Bonnie Beyer Loveless to Ponder Call Of Assembly DES MOINES Ur>-Gov. Herschel Loveless said in effect Thursday that whether he calls a special session of the legislature in this bl- ehnium depends upon what the Re publican majority in the legisla ture would do. . * "Every indication I have had is that they would, just recess and go home,'* he told his news conference. ^, Asked whether he planned con tacting Republican legislative leaders on their attitude, he said he hadn't and had no plan to do so. The governor's comments came when he was asked at his news conference about a meeting scheduled with him for Friday by a State Board of Regents committee. ' The regents group asked to talk with Loveless about appropriations for capital improvements at Iowa State College, the State University of Iowa-, Iowa State Teachers College and other institutions under regents' direction The 1957 Legislature appropriated about 11 million dollars, for new buildings and other improvements at regents' institutions. The governor vetoed all capital improvements bills when he vetoed the Vh per cent sales tax. Referring to Friday's scheduled meeting, Loveless said: "They probably are wanting to see the wrong people. They probably should see the Republican leadership in the state. In the event of a special session, what Loveless See Page 10 Fire Marshal Backs New Regulations for Iowa Nursing Homes DES MOINES MPi - Iowa Fire Marshal Ed Herron said Thursday he believes that new regulations covering nursing homes represent minimum requirements for safety, despite numerous complaints received from home operators. * The regulations, approved by an advisory committee June 26, are scheduled to go into effect in September. Herron said most complaints are against a rule requiring automatic sprinkler systems in frame buildings with 15 or more persons. He said about 20 per cent of Iowa's 1,000 nursing and custodial homes will be affected. Herron estimated the cost of a sprinkler system at $2,500 and added; "Numerous nursing home operators are complaining about financial hardship from our new rules. "This is not sufficient reason for jeopardising the lives of their occupants." , Warren Gives High Tribunal Ruling Today Decision Considered a Victory for American Security Abroad WASHINGTON (ff>-The Supreme Court Thursday upheld 8-0 the U.S. government's decision to turn over GI William S. Girard to Japan lor trial in the killing of a Japanese woman. The high court, in an unsigned; opinion, ruled: 1. Delivery of Girard is not prohibited by the Constitution; arid 2. In the absence of a constitutional bar, the judgment of the executive department should be upheld. Girard is to be turned over to* the Japanese under a 1 status of forces agreement, similar tb'pacts the United States has with some 50 friendly nations. No Statutory Barrier The superior court held that in the absence of a constitutional violation, the "wisdom if the* ar* rangement is exclusively for th* determination of the executive and legislative branches of government." And, the court said: - a "We find no constitutional oe, statutory barrier to the provision as applied here." V Chief Justice Warren read the opinion for the court in a specially called session. The case had been under con-; sideration by the justices since Monday when they held another special session to hear four hours of argument on it. Justice Douglas did not participate. He had left on vacation before the high court agreed to pass on an order by U, S. District Judge Joseph C. McGarraghy barring Girard's delivery to the Japanese for trial. ., Administration Victory The decision was a major, victory for the'administration, which; has contended that refusal to turn Girard over to the Japanese would? .be a-grave threat to America's security. The administration argument was that if the agreements; under which Americans overseas may be tried by foreign courts; for off-duty acts were cancelled, U.S. forces would have to come home. At the same time, the decision was a setback for forces in Congress which contend the U. S. Con-' stitution goes with GIs overseas, and they must have its full protection. ' Girard is accused of the Japanese equivalent of manslaughter in the death of Mrs. Naka Sakai Jafc. 30 on a firing range used by both U.S. and Japanese troops.* She was shot with an empty cartridge case fired from a rifle grenade launcher. The Japanese contend Mrs. Sakai, who was scavenging metal scrap, was enticed to the area where she was shot., ? ; Girard has denied any enticement and contends the shooting was an accident. < International Incident The case had grown into an international incident, with Japanese leftists and Nationalist politicians demanding jurisdiction. In Congress the case has led to demands for revision of the status! of forces agreements the United; States has with some 50 friendly countries. In its opinion Thursday the Supreme Court first; gave a lengthy review of the factual background', of the Girard case and the making- of the status-of-forces agreement with Japan. The opinion then said:. "The issue for our decision is... narrowed down to the question whether, upon the record before, us, the Constitution or legislation subsequent to the security treaty (with Japan) prohibited the carrying out of this provision authorized by the treaty for waiver of the qualified jurisdiction granted by Japan. S "We find no constitutional or statutory barrier to the provision as applied here." i! MRS.
