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,,.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, I 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. •Sadrifddin ,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.

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 believe that if Swisher decided to run for the 'upper, chamber that lieicquldjstill. retain : his seat in "'the" H6use 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 DES MOINES Wl—Iowa farmers 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 based on ,July 1 conditions. The Iowa corn output is expected to . exceed 536 million bushels on a reduced acreage. The prospective yield., pf."53 bushels aiuacre is estimated at'- a 'total of 536,731;000 bushels on 10,127,000 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 S, compared with nearly 100 per cent last year.

See Page 10 Senate Might Limit Bill to Voting Rights .L. i Democratic Leader John ston Discounts Any Talk of Compromise WASHINGTON leader Lyndon B. 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 thl 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 South erners that the current bill would permit the attorney general to use troops if he thought it necessary to enforce racial integration in schools synd other public places. Sen. Francis Case (R-SD) saic 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 cat 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 oi this bill as being intended for compromise purposes.

Asked whether he planned coir tacting Republican legislative leaders on their attitude, he said he hadn't and had no plan to do so.

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.

Girard to Japan for 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; and 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 status of forces agreement, similar to N pacts the United States has with some 50 friendly nations. No Statutqry Barrier The superior court held that In the , absence of 'a - constitutional .violation, the -"wisdom ">f the* arrangement is exclusively for the determination of the executive and, legislative branches of government." And, the court said:, *• "We find no constitutional or statutory barrier to the provision as applied here." x \ Chief Justice Warren read tha ; opinion,for the court in a specially called session.

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 coma home. At the same time, the decision was a setback for forces' in Congress which contend the U. S. Constitution goes with GIs overseas and they must have its full protection, s Girard is accused of the Japanese equivalent of manslaughter in the death of Mrs. Naka Sakai Jaft. 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 qontend 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, i 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 firs^ 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 befora, us, the Constitution or legislation subsequent to the security treaty (with Japan) prohibited the car*, rying out of this provision authorized by the treaty for waiver of the qualified jurisdiction granted by Japan.
