Ago Khan IV Mounts Satin Throne GENEVA (ifV-Aga Khan IV, a handsome 20-year-old Harvard University senior, mounted a white satin throne on the lawn of his family's lakeside villa Saturday and received the homage of his kneeling religious followers. "My religious responsibilities begin as of today," said the new spiritual head of 20 million Ismaili Moslems. It was the first time such a ceremony bad taken place in western Europe. The old Aga Khan bypassed his 'T rou LL. fine** two sons to name his grandson, 1 • ,w »Mi« wcsaCl Prince Karim, as his successor. The will of Aga Khan III, made public Friday night, designated handsome, 6-foot Karim, Spontaneous Grin Kaganovich Symbol of Bloody Red Treachery By WILLIAM L.

The Soviet history of bloody repression, treachery, betrayal and persecution can be summed up in his career. And now, the crowning irony, he finds himself betrayed by the men who owe him their political lives.

J »• Night of two vintage airplanes fly- Aga Khan IV had a hard time ing acrosg th(J nation ina easy repressing the schoolboy in him He was unable to contain a spontaneous grin, and occasionally winked at acquaintances among the newsmen. Sir Eboo Bhai, leader of the Ismailis in East Africa, stood directly behind him as a symbol of the fealty of East African Ismai­ lis to the new Aga. Most of the male followers who pledged their loyalty were in European clothes, but most of the women wore colorful saris. Burial in Egypt stages. They started Friday from Van Nuys, Calif. Frank Tallman of Glenview, 111., owner of the World War I German Fokker and French Nieuport, planned to get the ships underway again today. The .Fokker had to put down about 50 miles short of Tucson at should have been eternally grateful to Kaganovich. As iron commissar of the Ukraine, he startled Krushv on his way to the top. As boss of Moscow he raised Bul­ ganin out of obscurity. For years, surviving purge after purge, Kaganovich was the highest-ranking Jew in the Soviet Union and the only one in the top ruling group of the Communist Party. But he was a Jew-hating Jew, who concurred In Stalin's per secutions of them. Yet, for all his excesses in the name of "building socialism," Kaganovich probably did as much for the struggling U.S.S.R. as any other one man. He was Stalin's faithful servant, one of the few old Bolsheviks to survive the master's blood purges Shrewd, able and hard as nails, he was almost a political carbon copy of his boss. Only 5 feet 7 Kaganovich gives one the impression of bulk. He has soft, liquid eyes, but there is nothing soft about him. Kaganovich was born of poor Eloy Friday night. Tallman said parenls in a village near Kiey in he thinkgs there was water in the j tne Ukraine in 1893. At 14 he was gasoline. The two pilots are making the flight in connection with the Ricks | memorial hop from Fresno, Calif., The late Aga's body lay in ai t0 Andrews AFB, near Washing room immediately above the lawn: ton D . c., July 28, where his successor received loy alty pledges. Household sources said the body would lie in state next Thursday and Friday and be flown to Aswan, Egypt, Saturday for burial. Behind the group, peeking through a curtain from the window of the room where the old Aga died, was the late ruler's widow, the Begum. Tears streamed down her face. When photographers approached she wrapped herself in the folds of the curtain. In Karachi—birthplace of the old Aga Khan and an important Ismaili center—news of the naming of Prince Karim was warmly welcomed. Share in Estates The Aga Khan Ill's sons, Prince Aly and Prince Sadruddin, will share in their father's immense estates. Aly, 46, is the new Aga's father and Sadruddin, 24, his uncle. Aly Khan appeared pleased at the decision. Sadruddin seemed in a pettish mood, forcing his sports car through a crowd of reporters, blowing his horn violently and driving off at high speed after the selection became known. The old Aga, 79, died Thursday in his Swiss villa. He had reigned for 71 years, since he was 8. In his will he said he was picking Karim •as his successor because he believed a "young man brought up during the atomic age should take over the post. Student at Harvard The new Aga, an a student at Harvard, wants to return this fall for the completion of his senior year. As a sophomore, his roommate was John Fell Stevenson, son of Adlai E. Stevenson, the two time Democratic candidate for President. "I don't know whether I'll be able to go back to Harvard," he . said in an interview. "But I certainly hope to, and hope I can room again with John Fell." The new Aga is one of Aly Khan's two sons by his first marriage, to Joan "Barbara Yarde- Buller, .daughter of a British baron. A British subject, Karim is of Persian and Italian' descent through his father and English through his mother He has dated French film starlet Anne Marie Mersen, but otherwise has not shown as much interest as his father, uncle and grandfather in fast cars, race horses and beautiful women.

Mr. and Mrs. Mike Reiff, Tommy and Lois, Mrs. Mary Wempe and Vernon, Leo and Frances Reiff attended a family picnic at the Clem Henkenius 'home at Paton Sunday, honoring Robert Henkenius, who was home on furlough from the army. Mock Alert Brings A Real Emergency TUCSON, Ariz. W -- Civil Defense workers in Tucson were, hit with a real emergency when the mock alert sounded all over the nation Friday. A local power failure knocked the temporary headquarters in the courthouse out of business. Work stopped as local CD Director Louis Menager rushed to his regular office and got a flashlight. The paper evacuation of the city continued when the lights went on IS minutes later. Boy Scout Jamboree Hears Nixon Address VALLEY FORGE, Pa. WV-Vice * President Nixon, taking note of the Boy Scout theme of brotherhood, said any civil rights law passed by Congress "won't be worth the paper it is written on" unless the people themselves enforce it. Nixon Friday night addressed 50,000 scouts and 20,000 visitors massed in a big arena for .the gala opening pageant of the fourth national jamboree. , Nixon said that "Scouting means recognition of the equal dignity of every individual in this country regardless of his race or creed or his color," Any civil rights law, if passed, Nixon said^ would prove futile "unless there is the will on the part of the people of the nation to obey that law. and that will must come from the people them selves." Crispus Attucks led the anti British demonstration which re suited in the Boston Massacre on March 5, 1770. MOVING Local and Nation Wide ' Storage — Crating — Packing Ph. Day 2540 Ph. Night MU Carroll lew* John Vanderhtiden PROMOTED IN GERMANY U.S. Forces, Germany — Darell G. Soe. whose wife, Rosemary and parents, Mr. and Mrs. O. Soe, live in Audubon, Iowa, recently was promoted to private first class while serving with the 498th Engineer Battalion in Germany. A demolitions specialist in the battal ion's Company A, Soe entered the army last October and arrived in Europe in April. a cobbler's apprentice, at 17 a Bolshevik revolutionary. He was ruthless and had courage. After the revolution he became mayor of Tashkent in Uzbekistan but his talents were obvious, and at 27 he was recalled by Stalin to become president of the All-Russian Leather Workers Union. Soon afterward he headed' the Communist Party's personnel division, a key job, and in 1925 he was sent to the Ukraine as party boss there. He was iron commissar over the Ukraine's 30 million people in Russia's breadbasket. There he built the giant Dneprostroi Dam, the Soviet Union's first big hydroelectric power project. For this he became a member of the ruling Politburo. He also became party boss of Moscow province. Under him was Bulganin, who served as mayor of Moscow. When Stalin decided on forced collectivization of farms, Kaganovich plunged into the job. The result was famine in the Ukraine, but by 1933 Kaganovich had crops; coming in again and had created a vast chain of collectives and machine-tractor stations. As commissar for railroads in 1933 he made the trains run on time by a simple solution—involk- ing the death penalty for interrupted schedules. Stalin then made him commissar for heavy industry as the U.S.S.R. smelled war in the offing In 1942 he joined the inner war cabinet. In 1945 he was head of the ministry of building materials, accomplishing a huge reconstruction job. In 1946 he had to rescue Khrushchev from a tight spot. The Ukraine, where Khrushchev was boss, was in devastation from the war. Inside a year, Kaganovich ruthlessly stamped out seething opposition to Moscow, whipped farming and building into shape, reopened mines, rebuilt the Dnei- per dam. Then he went back to Moscow and let Khrushchev take over again. In mid-1955, Kaganovich became head of the Soviet Wages and Labor Committee. The same year he made the main speech at the celebration of the revolution anniver- say, claiming the 20th century as the "century of Communist victory." But his star was on the wane. This unreconstructed revolutionary clung to his position longer than any of the other original old Bolsheviks. V. M. Molotov lost; the job of foreign minister in June. A week later Kaganovich lost his wages and labor job. The most successful of Soviet industrialists, he is now accused of sabotaging production. The last of Lenin's co-revolutionists, he is now accused of being anti-Lenin ist. CATCHING UP TO MOMMY . . .

UB — Samuel Preston Weatherby, 23, of Dallas, will not appear in a movie", about Marines for three reasons. He was a phony Marine, the man who By STERLING F. GREEN NEWSPQ1NT, . Operation Alert UPh- Hampered by hitches, delays and admitted foul-ups, the Civil Defense forces of Operation Alert 1957 struggled today against a make-believe nuclear holocaust. It's enonrlity grew by the hour. The presumed . "enemy" who swept across the North Pole Friday with H-bombs to spare and supersonic bombers to deliver them had "smashed" at least 153 vital U. S. targets. An . early-morning bulletin said "countless lives" were saved by nationwide Civil Defense measures. But tens of • millions were lost, hypothetical^ speaking, and the ravages of airborne contamination were yet to be felt. "It is too early-to tell whether the exercise is a success or flop," one official said. "The results will be trickling in for days. "We've had painful delays in communications. But the real thing would be a lot slower." President Eisenhower, after a helicopter flight from a capital that was theoretically blasted soon after, was in safe "hiding." A mock national emergency was in force, and a rudimentary "war effort" was being patched together, on paper. Twin Problems At another secret headquarters, the twin problems of civilian survival and of assessing what remained to fight with were being dealt with by leaders of the Federal Civil Defense Administration (FCDA) and the Office of Defense Mobilfiation (ODML About 5,000 more government officials and key workers will join week-long exercise on Monday. From 30-odd Washington agencies they will report to 80 emergency relocation centers in a half-dozen states. There they will fashion an economy of simulated controls and rationing.. • The Operation Alert planners, it became clear today, had handed the Civil Defense teams a king 8 Times Ha raid, Carroll, Iowa Saturday, July 13, 1957 ever hit us, they will go all out," one FCDA official said. But no official estimate, of dead and wounded was planned. An official bulletin said the simulated "strikes" did not imply that any potential enemy could hit all the hypothetical targets with the weapons described. Therefore, it said, a nationwide casualty report would be "extremely misleading." But it was recalled that Operation Alert 1955 left some 20 millions presumably dead, and in that exercise fewer targets were hit and smaller weapons were used. Troops Set Field Camps DES MOINES Ifl—Between next Saturday and Aug. 31 well' oyer 8,500 Iowa National Guard ground troops and airmen will take their annual summer field training. The men will train in seven sections, at six installations in five states. Nearby Camp Dodge will be the site for two groups. Two more will go t o two places in Wyoming.

New York, Philadelphia, Boston for impersonating a Marine captain and was sentenced to three months in jail Friday. He blamed his troubles pn a "Marine major" he met in New Orleans. The "major" told Weatherby, he said, that he was the sole survivor of the famous flag raising secret command headquarters in a "whirlybird" Friday afternoon, arranged-an early morning departure by atitomobile for his farm at Gettysburg, Pa. The likely program there is golf later in the day and* relaxation at his country home Sunday. Monday morning he will leave the farm by 'copter and get back to Washington in the early afternoon after visiting the secret operation alert headquarters of the Office of Defense Mobilization and the federal Civil Defense Administration. For security reasons the ( location of this command post—to which the President might be evacuated in event of actual war —cannot be disclosed. It is within 200 miles of Washington.

The man offered Weatherby a part in the film and told him to report to the Marine recruiting .office, Weatherby said. Weatherby did that, and when he walked into the recruiting office—wearing a Purple Heart with a Silver Star—he aroused the suspicion of real Marines. The medals meant he had been wounded Mrs.'M. R.

Robber Appears as Solid Bank Customer SAN FRANCISCO WV-A quiet, middle aged man robbed an American Trust Co. branch of $753 Friday. H. G. Foster, special agent in charge of the FBI, said he appeared to be the same man who has robbed 13 othor banks in the Bay area since Feb. 3, 1956. Foster said he always dresses conservatively—like a solid bank customer—and always strikes on Friday afternoon Baltimore Hotels to Accept Negro Guests BALTIMORE W-The Hotel Association of Baltimore announced Friday its members ha^ approved a policy of admitting Negro athletes and convention delegates. The Association's members, which include all major hotels in the city, had previously denied accomodations to all Negroes, A spokesman for the organization said the management of each hotel would decide whether to accept the policy, i)ut the three biggest downtown members said they would do so. * High "C" is the key to a lot of annoyance on some of the TV musical shows of Pakistan Green, 89-year-old chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, lost consciousness briefly Friday, but later he walked into the hospital without assistance. "It was- just heat exhaustion," one of Green's aides said. "The doctors say his condition is very satisfactory. He'll be in the hospital for two or three days of rest —if he'll stay that long."

An attack by a 20-megaton H- bomb "destroyed" New York City. The official report, which reached this news center 10 hours after the supposed strike, said the weapon exploded over Governor's Island in New York Harbor, "cover- ingv,the entire city of New York." "Everything within a 5-mile radius was reported destroyed," the FCDA bulletin said. Twelve other targets in the state were hit. Special Mock Horror Chicago, and Gary, Ind., had special mock ; horror. Two 3,000- pound nerve gas bombs exploded over Lake Michigan, presumably spreading an odorless, colorless gas that kills in seconds. j Discovered in Roanoke, Va., was \ an unexploded "suitcase" bomb. 1 Greensboro, N.C. was "wiped out" ; by a 20-kiloton missile launched from a submarine off the coast. The vast atomic energy installations at Oak Ridge, Tenn., and j Los Alamos, went up in imaginary j blast and flame. Grand Coulee < Dam was presumed struck by the I equivalent of a million tons of: TNT. In the same make-believed manner, the Panama Canal was hit, as were points in Alaska and Puerto Rico. Officials refused to ajimit, however, that >the catastrophic- scope of the exercise reflected official evaluation of the capability of the assumed "enemy" or of his H- bomb stockpile. "The assumption is that if they officer of the division is Maj. Gen. Warren C. Wood "of Gering, Neb. The Iowa adjutant general's office said the division's work would be about the same type as in previous year, although more advanced. Col. Donald Johnson, assistant adjutant, added: "We try to make the training progressive. But we have quite a lot of turnover. And the newer men must be brought -up to date. There are plans for making the training more intensive in the future." On the same date the division goes into training, the Iowa Military Academy will open at Camp Dodge. It will be made up of about 60 men from private through warrant officer. After a year's periodic work, those who pass the test will be commissioned second lieutenants. The first phase of the academy work will end Aug. 10. The next group to encamp will be the 133rd Aircraft Control and Warning Flight. It will begin work at Camp Dodge Aug. 10, and continue through Aug. 24. Included will be men from Fort Dodge and Cedar Rapids.
