Vol. 88—No. 164 Carroll, Iowa, Saturday, July 13, 1957—Eight Pages Russell State Reports Capital Funds Are Available Unspent Appropriations Earmarked for Certain Improvement Projects By D WIGHT MC CORMACK DES MOINES Ufi — The state comptroller's office said Saturday there is about $3,300,000 in unspent capital improvements appropriations in the state treasury credited to State Board of Regents institutions. In addition, there remains about $4,500,000 in similar appropriations credited to the State Board of Control, and nearly $1,200,000 for the State Conservation Commission. The bulk of the funds are earmarked for certain projects, and cannot be spent for anything else. They are credited to various institutions and purposes. The 1957 Legislature appropriated substantial amounts for the three agencies for improvements. But Gov. Hersche) Loveless vetoed the measures, at the same time he prmitted the sales tax and certain other state levies to return to their former levels. A delegation representing *the Board of Regents, the State University of Iowa, Iowa State CoU lege and Iowa State Teachers College called on the governor Friday for a discussion of the immediate building needs. ! Set Another Meeting After Loveless raised several, questions, the group decided to ob- j tain further information and get together again for a half-day session in about two weeks.

He said he would ask re-enactment of the improvement bills "as needed," Earlier this week, however Democratic Loveless said he doubts whether anything could be accomplished in a special session, because? he' 1 commented: "The Re' publican majority in the Legisla ture has given every indication that it would only recess and go home." He said then that there was about $8,000,000 in unspent capital improvements appropriations being held for the three agencies. However, the comptroller's figures show the total to be about $9,200, 000. ' Expenditure of capital improvement appropriations n o r ma 11 y takes two or three years after they are provided. The comptroller's office Ssaid it could not determine immediately how long some of the presently available funds have been held by the treasury. Additional Amounts But the figures showed that there is more 4han a $1,000,000 credited to SUI, about $1,250,000 to ISC, and about $350,000 to ISTC. There are additional amounts held for other Board of Regents insti? tutions. These, in approximate amounts, include: SUI Hospitals, $130,000; Vinton Braille and , Sight-Saving School, $93,000; Council Bluffs School for the Deaf, $310,000; and Oakdale* Sanatorium, $277,000.

By agreement, they said, lawyers on both sides declined to discuss this point. • Taylor saw the newsreels in his chambers after Friday's session of the trial — the last until Monday — ended. Attorneys were closeted with him more than an hour. Judge to Rule When they came out, they said only that the judge would rule on the admissibility of the pictures "at a subsequent date." Riots flared in Clinton, a pleasant little town near Knoxville, when Negro students were admitted to the high school last autumn. National guardsmen, tanks, and state police were called to restore order. Whether the .newsreels show scenes of this is not known. Some of the pictures were made when Kasper was tried and convicted of contempt of court. The 15 Tennesseans, including a 19-year-old housewife who is pregnant, are on trial for criminal contempt, charged with knowingly violating Taylor's injunction against interference with the desegregating of the high school in Clinton. The trial has lasted a full week and the end is nowhere in sight. In the latest session; U.S. District Atty. John C. Crawford established one of tho government's contentions, and called a parade of witnesses to fix the other. These were: . J Reads Injunction 1. Testimony that Clyde Cook, Canadian Held On Check Charge Ellis F. Jenkins, 22, of Calgary, Manitoba, was held Saturday in the Carroll Countv jail pending investigation of bad check charges in Manning last month. Jenkins was arrested at Galva on Friday by the Ida County Sheriff on a complaint filed by a Manning service station in connection with a $40 check drawn by Jenkins on a Manning bank and for which no funds nor account was available at the bank, the Carroll County sheriff's office said. When Jenkins was apprehended at Galva, he was using the name Jerry C. Hughes The suspect had been spotted in Galva by a Manning truck driver, and, ensuing investigation disclosed that Hughes and Jenkins were identical persons, the sheriff's office said. Mrs. Otis Howell Killed in Accident, Local Woman's Aunt Mrs. Otis Howell of Arthur, aunt of Mrs. Wayne Farrell of Carroll, was one of two persons killed Friday in a headon crash near Merriman in western Nebraska. The other victim was identified as Mrs. Richard Riley from Massa chusetts. Mrs. Howell was killed outright. Mrs. Howell, who was about 5% years old, was a sister of the late Mrs. Mary Schoening of Carroll. Her husband," daughter, Linda, and granddaughter, Marcia Cox, are hospitalized at Gordon, Neb,, according to information received by Mrs. Farrell. The four were en route to Wyoming to visit the How ells' son, Robert. ' Mrs. Howell is survived by her husband and six children. The family had formerly lived at, Aubiirn, where Mr. Howell was station agent for the North Western Railway. He is now station agent at Arthur. 1 with a bathing-suit parade at the American Legion Swimming Pool at 9 o'clock tonight.

WILLK1E Associated Press Automotive Editor DETROIT W)-*Higher price tags are certain to appear on 1958 model automobiles.. « How much longer they will be depends upon numerous factors, all related to higher production costs. The auto 1 makers already!, are paying more for .the steel that goes into their product. In mid- 1958 they will-negotiate new wage contracts certain to increase overall labor costs. Obviously, nobody, knows at present what new cars will cost four and five roontb/, from now. Some preliminary guesses have ,, placed the increase at an average of $40 to $50, That'could cover increases ranging from as little ar $10 to as much-as $300., Increases In the high-volume low* er-ptfee field should, fee'' J **J$ttv%ly, low; v Competition lift ;that .*roc*;«jt> {a keener than' it- ever has been. Probably a $to increase in the price of, one of the volume models is of no great importance. Yet the promotion value of having the "lowest; priced car in the low price field" is far-reaching in the estimation of the car manufacturer. > . • So the,manufacturers in the low price' field watch each other's price announcements with great interest; And there is no assurance, other, than the bitterness of the competition, that price increases in the low price field will be of small proportions. Right now new car price tags distinctly favor the car buyer, Dealor stocks are; large enough to restrain even . the manufacturers from adding the, increased price of «teel to "the delivered,price of 1957 .cars.

The rotund president of the nation's biggest union surrendered for routine booking, mugging and fingerprinting. Then he posted 13,000 bail and called a press conference to denounce the action as "simply ridiculous as well as a complete surprise." Young Beck went through the ritual, loo, but didn't attend the conference at which his dad said he spoke for both. Leaves on Tour Saturday, after saying there wasn't "a chance in a million" he would be convicted, Beck left on a tour of the nation which will take him to a half dozen union meetings around the country. /The grand jury, which sat a total of 15 days and heard 55 witnesses, indicted no other persons although it considered a number of other matters. It did, however, return a lengthy report lamenting I its inability to do more because of "inadequate laws" and the statute of limitations. The elder Beck, the jurors charged, kept for his own use $1,900 recieved for»a unien-owned Cadillac. Junior, the jurors declared in two separate indictments kept $4,650 from the sale of two other Teamster Cadillacs. "It isn't so/' said the father indignantly in a press conference, not "by the wildest stretch of the imagination." Error by Secretary Certainly, he said, the money from the sale of the three automobiles had found its way into his own bank account or safe where he vkeeps "large amounts of cash."' His* secretary put them there by error, Beck explained, community in the 1957 Miss Iowa Pageant at Clear Lake, July 26, 27 and 28. Trophies will be presented Sunday night to the girl who is selected by a panel of five out-of- town judges for the title of "Miss Carroll" and to the girl who is chosen among the contestants themselves for the title qf "Miss Congeniality." Sponsors of the 14 contestants, announced at the Chamber of Commerce Saturday, are as follows: Agnes Reiling. Carroll County Rural Young People; Janice Huebner, Distributors Bureau of the Chamber of Commerce; Carolyn Hamann, Salesmen's Bureau; Diane Wittrock, Automobile Bureau; Donna Subbert, Hotel-Motel-Restaurant Recreation Bureau; Carol Antonc, Grundmeier Service, Musfeldt Service and Keuhl's Cafe of Manning; Lois 01- sen, Finance Utilities, Transportation and Industries Bureau; Linda Pingrey, Coon Rapids Chamber of Commerce; Letha Niehaus, Builders, Hardware and Home Supplies Bureau of the Carroll Chamber; Marlita Kemper, Real Estate and Insurance Bureau; Patricia Bundt, Retail Bureau; Marilyn Klocke, Professional Bureau; Rita Morrissey, Carroll Junior Chamber of Commerce; and Bonnie Beyer, Women's Bureau. • Close Pool for Beauty Pageant Because of the Miss Carroll Pageant to be held at the American Legion Swirtiming Pool at 9 p.m. tonight, Rita Morrissey, pool manager, announced Saturday that the pool will be closed to swimmers at 8 p.m. Although a little under Sunday's all-Jlme record of 1,840, hot weather on Friday brought another big day to the pool with an attendance of 1,369. ! Chicago Area Hit by Violent Winds, Rains Reverse Flow of River Into Lake Because of High Water CHICAGO (*>—Torrential rains, violent winds and lightning tore into Chicago and suburbs Friday night, flooding thousands of homes, blocking roads and ripping down power lines and trees. Some residents of at least one suburb were forced to evacuate their homes as the storm; described as one of the worst in recent years, dumped more than five inches of rain in some areas within an eight-hour period. At least one death was reported when a South Side man was electrocuted as he pumped out his flooded basement. More than 30 persons were injured, none seriously, when gusty winds knocked down a tent theater on the Southwest Side during an evening performance. About 250 persons were watching a play when the canvas roof and supports came crashing down. Minor Explosions Police and fire stations received dozens of calls reporting minor explosions as rising waters covered basement heating equipment. Lightning struck several homes in no'rthwest and southwest suburbs. The battering winds and rain played havoc with transportation and communication. Hundreds of cars stalled in deep water. •Two of the city's main transportation arteries—the Outer and Lake Shore Drives and the Congress Street Expressway — were closed for a time when as much as four feet of water piled up in spots. 1 Traffic was tied up for miles at the height of the storm. Many motorists were stranded in flooded underpasses and whole sections of the city were cut off as water swirled across streets and roads. The Illinois Bell Telephone Co. reported 5,000 telephones out in the city limits and 2,000 more in the suburbs. Contact with Midway Airport—the world's busiest—was knocked out when five feet of water seeped into basements, soaking equipment. Planes still were Storm .... See Page 7 Warns Against Farm Accidents A plea for extra care in the prevention of farm accidents was made Saturday by W. H. Brown, county extension director, in announcing National Farm Safety Week which has been proclaimed by President Dwight D. Eisenhower for July 14 to 21. Mr. Brown calls attention to the fact that farm accidents have taken a heavy toll in Carroll County and that this toll can be reduced if everyone will make special effort since most dents are preventable. Of 12,000 fatalities in farm accidents reported nationally from 1949 to 1953, according to Mr. Brown, machinery accounted for 31 per cent; drownings 13 per cent; fire arms slightly under 13 per cent and falls 11 per cent. Animals burns and blows each accounted for another 6 per cent. Most fatalities from accidents with machinery occur under 20 or over 39 years of age, and 75 per cent of drownings occur under age 20. Likewise,, accidents from other causes were predominantly in the younger group. a acci- Vincent F. Powers .•• V. Powers In Practice Of Law Here Vincent F. Powers of Ft.

W-Here in the rolling beauty of a landscape which has an imperishable place in American history 50,000 Boy Scouts have made a world of their own. In more ways than one, it is a model for their elcers, exemplifying what can be done when people keep their spirits high, their hearts young, their outlook cheerful, their mood congenial. Jamboree City is expertly laid out, with all the transport, health, feeding, sanitary, recreational and other services humming without of Jempleton, Cyril Snyder of i irictibn or undue fuss.

Two local breeders will be represented in the sale — Edward P. Brincks of Carroll with two Land- race boars and Cyril Snyder of Breda witli a Duroc boar, ' the camaraderie of thq boys, tfeeir ability to get on together, to swap precious stuff of boyhood, to kid and horse around with enormous vitality without rousing anything resettfbling real anger. Humor is a key word at the jamboree and indeed wherever the boys branch out for sightseeing or to take in a ballgame or to be entertained in homes. Take the time the scouts from Texas met the scouts from Australia and they started trading snapshots. One of the Aussies pulled out a picture of a kangaroo and said, "Look! here is one of the most unusual things about my country." ' A Texas boy shot back: "Got to admit, your jackrabbits aVe a little taller than ours." Hundreds of the scouts said said, they'd be. highly. pleased if Valley Forge was chosen as permanent site of the jamboree. They feel this is a kind of second home, that there is Administration Forces Expect Vote Tuesday Unusual Saturday Session Held for More Debate On Measure WASHINGTON WV-Sen. Russell (D-Ga) urge'd the Senate Saturday to strike out of the Eisenhower administration's civil rights bill its most controversial provision—? a section which backers call the heart of the measure. "I was never more serious in my life," Russell told his colleagues as he proposed three major changes in the House-passed bill. One would give the Senate a measure of control over the proposed Civil Rights Investigation Committee. ' « Another would delete from the bill the proposed authority for the attorney, general to go into federal courts and seek injunction! against violations or threatened violations of voting or other civil rights. • .-v Supporters of the bill -maintain that without such a provision the measure could not be enforced. ' Russell,' quarterback of Southern Democrats fighting the. bill, proposed the the Senate met in an unusual Saturday session to give members a chance to spread their views on the record. Clear First Hurdle < Backers cleared a first hurdle Friday when no objection" Was raised to a Senate vote Tuesday on a motion by Sen. Knd^land (R-Calif) to bring the bill up formally for action. That did not foreclose the possibility of a Southern filibuster against the bill later. Much appeared to hinge on the results of compromise moves. Sen. Gore (D-Tennr sjaid he is consulting with colleagues of-both parties about a possible substitute' for the administration bill. . v V Sen. Javits (R-NY) told the Senate there has been "an unfortunate amount of speculation about compromises" in the bill. • "This is a very moderate b$,'V he said. v Speaking immediately after Russell had offered his amendments, Javits said he .doesn't believe, revision of, the,measure wjll win any more supporters' for it^ 11 ^ Bipartisan Commission The House bill embodies an administration proposal for, a bit partisan six-member Civil Rights Commission which would make a two-year study and recommendations. Commission members would be appointed by the President* subject to Senate confirmation. " Russell proposed the staff direct tor for this commission also be subject to Senate confirmation. He said this official probably would be the key person in the proposed study. Russell also proposed to forbid Rights BUI . . .
