Hicklin, Wapello, Iowa, attorney, to be U.S.'District judge for Southern Iowa. Hicklin, 62-year-old Republican, would succeed the late Judge William F. Riley. The nomination is subject to Senate confirmation. Hicklin formerly was a state senator; Federal district judgeship appointments are for life and carry $22,500 a year salary. . The nomination of Hicklin ends a long period during which the U.S. Department of Justice did not' make a decision as to whether to recommetid his appointment to the President. Managed Campaign Hicklin, an attorney, managed Eisenhower's 1952 pre-convention campaign in Iowa for delegate support at the Republican convention. He had the support of Iowa Sen. B. B. Hickenlooper and Thomas E. Martin for the appointment. There had been indications that the ustice Department had delayed its decision pending consid ROBBERS FOILED . . . ; Four armed robbers wearing silk stockings over their heads entered the oldest French restaurant in San Francisco and herded the guests and employes into a storage cabinet in the rear. A waiter, however, broke away and into the street where he alerted the police who surrounded the place (above) iw a matter of seconds. Finding themselves trapped by about 30 policemen, the robbers dropped a sack containing an estimated $1,000 in loot and fled through a skylight in the kitchen roof.

Hicklin authorized Hickenlooper and Martin to submit another name for consideration, if they wished, but did not withdraw as a candidate. Martin subsequently said he had no inttiriffoh of withdrawing his support of Hicklin unless the Justice Department gave a definite and final decision that he could not be named. Nolan Mentioned State Sen. D. C. Nolan of Iowa City also was prominently mentioned as a possible appointee to the post. At the time Martin said he intended to continue his support of Hicklin, the senator added that "Sen. Hickenlooper is just as enthusiastic in his support of Hicklin as I am.

Widen Into Labor, Management WASHINGTON 1*1 - The Senate Rackets Investigating Committee Tuesday broadened its probe to cover a wide variety of labor-management abuses. The expanded agenda—including investigations of union and company political activities — seemed aimed at creating background for eventual amendment of the Taft- Hartley Labor Relations Law. Chairman McClellan (D-Ark) announced after a committee strategy session Monday that the eight- man group had voted to study such matters as union picketing and boycotts as well as employer interference with union organizing. 11 -Point Program The committee's new lt-point program appeared to mark a swing from investigations which so far have concentrated heavily Probers See Page 5 The Weather CARROLL FORECAST.

Dulles said he thinks it would be more proper to set up a NATO stockpile than to hand weapons over to individual countries. No Change In Law He said -he thinks the NATO atomic arsenal could perhaps be created without a chagne in U.S. law by placing it under the command of Gen. Lauris Norstad as the American military chief in Europe. Norstad is also NATO commander. Dulles covered these points at his first question-and-answer session with reporters in two weeks: 1. The rulers of Russia are "perplexed" over how to meet the demand of the Soviet people for greater freedom and better living. This perplexity caused the split in the presidium in which Communist boss Khrushchev woit out by a "narrow margin." Modernists Victory In Dulles' view it was a victory of the "modernists" in Russia over the "fundamentalists" who wanted to return to rule by "Stanlinist rod of iron." 2. The Kremlin shakeup does not mean any change in Soviet foreign policy since the policies of Russia in the last two years are assumed to be those of Khrushchev and the "modernists." 3. Dulles has no intention of taking up the proposal by Sen. Mansfield (D-Mont) that Dulles make a first-hand tour of countries behind the Iron Curtain. Roads Also Needed, Says Col. Frank Berlin All-weather surfacing of at. least one landing strip at the Carroll airport as the next step in modernizing the field was urged here Monday night by Col. Frank Berlin, director of the Iowa Aeronautics Commission Pointing out that flying has gone to heavier aircraft. Col. Berlin said the Carroll field is "still off- limits to many planes in inclement weather." The state aviation official spoke at a meeting of the Carroll Rotary club, attended by members of the city council and other guests. He said Carroll citizens should give serious consideration to this project as well as to "clear zones" in the immediate vicinity of the field, access roads, an administration building and more and better facilities. Should Think About "These are some things you should be thinking about if Carroll is to keep pace with the fast-growing aviation industry," he said.

He had asked for the chance to reply to testimony that Alfons Landa, a Washington lawyer, gave the committee May 14. Landa had told the committee he advised Teamster President Dave Beck that he "felt sure" the union could get a collective bargaining contract if Beck would vote union-owned stock in favor of the management in the proxy fight in which financier Louis Wolfson sought to capture control of the company. Subsequently, Landa said, he read in the newspapers that the union voted ° big block of stock for the management, and that the union got a contract with the company. "An iniquitous deal of the type that has been inferred from the testimony of Alfons Landa could not have been made without my knowledge," Barr told the committee.' "Each and every one of these inferences is untrue and I welcome this opportunity to publicly deny and refute them." Doesn't Know He said the company did not know then, and does not now, whether the union owned or voted any stock in 1955. He said the union was not a stockholder of record at the time and its stock was not registered or voted "in any name which is identifiable with the union." Larry P.

WASHINGTON <*> — President Eisenhower was pictured Tuesday as still in favor of all the "basic provisions" of the administration's civil rights bill—including a sect i o n especially denounced by Southern foes of the measure. "I find no change in his position," Senate Republican Leader Knowland of California said after a conference with the President. Knowland then added that Eisenhower "recogi. zed that the Senate may feel there are certain clarifications thai will be necessary." Knowland talked with reporters after he and other GOP congressional leaders held their regular Tuesday morning conference with Eisenhower. The Senate was to vote later in the day on Knowland's motion to bring the House-approved civil rights bill officially before it. Predicts Approval Knowland predicted that motion will be approved "by a substantially heavy margin." He also forecast defeat for an expected motion by Sen. Morse (D-Ore) to send the bill to the Senate Judiciary Committee for a seven-day review of its provisions. Knowland said adoption of that Morse proposal would amount to killing the bill. Southern foes of the civil rights measure have concentrated their fire on Section 3 ol the bill. They contend it would open the way for military enforcement of racial in tegration in the public schools. Opponents also have contended that the bill goes much further than the President's stated objective of protecting the right to vote Favors All Parts Asked specifically whether Eisenhower favors enactment of Section 3, the senator replied that in his opinion "it would be fair to say that the administration would not have recommended the four parts" if the President "had not felt that all are highly desirable and part of the program." Sen. Russell (D-Ga) has raised the spector of "bayonet rule" enforcement of all civil rights under one provision of the bill. Knowland said this provision may need "clarifying." "It was never intended or implied that federal troops would be used to enforce civil rights under this bill," he said. Russell has picked up support from Senators Anderson (D-NM), Mundt (R-SD) and others for limiting application of the measure to cases involving voting rights. Knowland declined to be tied down to any such narrowed application of the measure, despite Eisenhower's statement that his primary objective in asking Con- Rights See Page 5 lowan to Fly Jet in First Atom Firing NEVADA ATOMIC TEST SITE (ffi—An Air Force pilot from Webster City, Iowa — Capt.

The two airmen were chosen after the Research and Development Command requested that "the four best air defense crews" be based at Nevada's Indian Springs Air Force Base for familiarization and pre-flights. Two crews were eliminated, leaving the teams of Hutchison and Barbee and Lts. Burford Culpepper and James Jones, both from Georgia. Selection Made The selection was mude by Maj.
