Vol. 88—No. 167 Carroll, Iowa, Wednesday, July 17, 1957—Eight Pages Delivered by Carrier Boy tn Carroll Each Evening {or 35,Cents Pec Week 7 „ aingl* * copr Appeal State Decision on Manning School Plan Zhukov-Wilson Meeting Might Be Useful, Eisenhower Says Up Standards of Teachers in Public Schools New Grade Instructors Must Have 4-Year Degrees In 1960 DES MOINES UP) — A four-year college degree will be required of new elementary school teachers in Iowa beginning Aug. 31. I960, the State Department of Public Instruction said Wednesday. The raising of public school teachers' standards was approved by the state department. J. C. Wright, state superintendent of public instruction, said Iowa becomes the 38th state to establish the bachelor's degree as the minimum standard: Beginning high school teachers have been required to meet the college degree standard since 1955, and new elementary school teachers have needed only two years of college. The new requirement does not pertain to those already teaching in elementary schools. Administrators, Too The department also raised the requirements for new school administrators, effective Aug. 31, 1960. New principals and supervisors will be required to have master's degrees and new school superintendents will be required to have completed one year of study beyond a master's degree. Wayland W. Osborn, director of the state division of teachers education and certificates, said requirements were raised "so the teacher and administra'.or can do a more competent job in today's world." Cultural Level Rising "The general cultural level of our communities is rising," he said, "and school people must be better prepared." The deadline for the new requirements was set for 1960 to enable a transition to occur in adoption of the plan. The • transition will work this way: Certificates for elementary school teachers with two years of college will not be available after Aug. 31, 1958. However, students entering college in the fall of 1957 and 1958 may get a certificate in 1959 or 1960, respectively, but it will be valid for only one year of teaching, whereas it was valid for six years' teaching previously. This certificate, called the professional commitment certificate, will be renewable upon successful teaching experience and six additional semester hours of college work completed each year un. til the teacher t gets a four-year college degree. ' Wright said temporary certificates will continue to be issued for teaching in schools which face teacher shortages. Ike Stands Rights Bill by 4 Civil Objectives WASHINGTON W — President Eisenhower said Wednesday he can not imagine any circumstances which would induce him to try to enforce school desegregation through use of troops. Eisenhower stuck by his state- Want Closer Look at Cut in U.S. Forces By EDWIN B. HAAKINSON WASHINGTON M—Three members of,.the Senate Armed Services Committee said today they want to take a closer look at a Pentagon order for a 100,000-man reduction in the armed forces' authorized strength of 2,800,000. But two members of the House Appropriations Committee- Chairman Cannon (D-Mo) and pep. Mahon (D/Tex) — generally approved "the reduction. $2 Million Saving Secretary* of Defense Wilson, acting with President Eisenhower's approval, announced the cut Tuesday to be effective by the end of 1957. He said it would save about two million dollars "without materially affecting deployments of major combat units abroad, including those in Western Europe." Chairman Russell (D-Ga) of the Senate committee said he had not been informed in advance of the reduction plans. He said in an interview: "Our committee certainly will want to find out what these reductions will mean in the Air Force and its striking power," I Sen. Francis Case (R-SD), another committee member, said he wants to know "how much of a reduction this means in our combat power." The Army was ordered to absorb half the cut, or 50,000, the Air Force 25,000, the Navy 15,000 and the Marine Corps 10,000. Congress previously had authorized a combined strength of 2,800,000 men and women in uniform during the 12 - months that began July 1, but the latest defense tabulation showed 2,789,642 on May 31. That would hold the actual reduction to just under 90,000. Should Find Out Plan Sen. Jackson (D-Wash) said he agreed with Russell that the Armed Services Committee "should find out from the Department of Defense just what their long-i^nge plan \s." Russell saiti he believed "some limited redaction in our armed forces might be warranted Cannon said: "There is no need for so much manpower and more reductions can be made.'We fight nowadays with chemicals and ma chinery rather than in" hand-to- hand combat." Mahon, chairman of the House A p p r o p r i a 11 o n s subcommittee : which' handles defense funds, called it "a gobd move that won't hurt defense." ment of Tuesday night that he wants four objectives met in any civil rights bill on which the Senate finally acts. In the statement the President said he wants enforcement, without jury trial, of voting rights and similar enforcement of "other" civil rights. He mentioned establishment of a ciril rights investigating commission and the addition of a civil rights division in the Justice Department. Eisenhower was asked at his news conference his attitude toward an amendment by Sens. Anderson ID-NM) and Aiken (R-Vt) which would knock out of the bill a provision under which school integration and desegregation in public places could be enforced by injunctive action. He was asked if he would be satisfied with a bill which involved only voting rights. Wants Emphasis Eisenhower replied that the voting rights aspect of the measure should be emphasized. He said he had been told by some persons that-the section of the bill which authorizes injunctive action to enforce civil rights in general-section 3—might involve great dangers. A reporter pressed Elisenhower as to whether he favors permitting the attorney general on his own motion to go into court to enforce school integration. No, the President replied, when it is stated that way, not without some request from local authorities for action. Ahead of Eisenhower's discussion of civil rights, Republican senators held a closed-door strategy session to plan for the all-out fight now under way .in the Sen-,] ate. One senator, who came from the meeting while it was still underway, told a reporter: No Compromises "No compromises have been proposed or agreed upon. We are discussing all phases of the* bill." With the critical battle touched off, President Eisenhower reaffirmed his support of all the basic provisions of the bill. 1 Eisenhower's statement was issued by the White House within minutes after the Senate voted 7118 late Tuesday to take up the legislation for debate and action. "That's good," exlaimed Sen. Humphrey (D-Minn), a leading supporter of the bill, when he saw the President's statement. Other senators backing the measure also hoped it would stiffen resistance to compromise moves. Sen. Potter (R-Mich) said he didn't think more than five or six Republican senators would vote for any amendments to the administration bill, passed by the House last month. But Sen. Russell (D-Ga) said the Southern opponents he is leading "were prepared to expend the greatest effort ever made in history to prevent passage of this bill in its present form." • , The Dixie forces already have Civil Rights . See Page 7 Once Worked Very Closely With Russian Recalls Cooperation in Berlin at the End of World War II By MARVIN L. ARROWSM1TH WASHINGTON Wl — President Eisenhower said Wednesday a meeting of Russia's Marshal Zhu- kov and Secretary of Defense Wilson might prove useful. Eisenhower mace the comment at a news conference which ranged into foreign affairs, but also dealt heavily with a prime do-: mestic subject—the administration's pending civil rights bill. On the latter subject, Eisenhower said he could not imagine any circumstances which would induce him to try to enforce school desegregation through use of troops. Some foes of the civil rights bill have contended it would open the way to military enforcement of desegregation. The President's suggestion that a Zhukov-Wilson meeting might be worth while stemmed, from a request for comment on the recent shakeup of the Kremlin top com mand. Changes In Government On that point, Eisenhower said in his opinion the shakeup resulted from fundamental changes within the Soviet government. Eisenhower recalled that he and Zhukov, now Soviet defense min ister, became quite well acquaint ed at the end of World War II They were both in Berlin at the time. The President went on to say that he and Zhukov at that time cooperated very closely, and that a Zhukov-Wilson meeting at this time might prove profitable by bringing together defense ministers of the two countries. The President also discussed these topics: ATOMIC STOCKPILE — As Secretary of State Dalles did Tuesday, Eisenhower said this country is considering the possibility of putting a stockpile of atomic weapons at the disposal of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). He said further, however, that there is no specific program on that at this time, DISARMAMENT — Eisenhower said he is dead set against recessing the current London disarmament talks on the basis of anyone there being tired or discouraged. He said there are sometimes good reasons for a recess so that representatives of the various countries can consult with their governments, but no excuse whatever for getting discouraged.

Uft-Royal Cana dian Mounted Police said Wednesday three Iowa fishermen, re ported missing for a week, had been located by a search plane and were safe and well. Police said the search plane gave no details in its radio report. The only clue to the identity of the three men was given when they stored fish here July 6 under the name of "K. Kudart" of Waterloo, Iowa. At Waterloo it was confirmed that they vtere August Kudart, 49, his son Kenneth, 16 and Warner Zeran, 46. The three arrived at Clearwater Lake, 17 miles northeast of here, on July 5 for a three-day fishing expedition. After storing fish at a locker plant the following day they returned to the lake and left their car with W. H. Bunting, a summer resident. Bunting reported the trio missing last Sunday. He said they had planned a 10-mile trip across the lake but failed to return as expected. He said conditions on the lake were unsettled the day they set out. Mrs. August Kudart said at Waterloo that her husband had written that the party planned to return to The Pas Thursday and to Waterloo Saturday. Storm Creek | Trustees of Drainage District No district from 1 23- Annexes More Land A survey of the territory pro-, posed for the annexation was made by W. C. Otto, of Sac City. The purpose of the annexation is to spread the assessment load over the entire watershed of the district, attorneys said. The proposed annexation of additional property into the district will run the western boundary from three quarters of a mile east of Breda and thence through Maple River, three-quarters of a mile east of Roselle and southeasterly to the northern part of Newton Township. The proposed eastern boundary roughly follows the current boundary line. That starts three miles west of Highway 71 on the Carroll Sac county line. It proceeds south' ^easterly through the west part pf Lidderdale. Then the proposed boundary extends south and east through the west' part of Glidden and south to a point one-half mile north of the intersection of the north boundary of Union Township with the west boundary of Richland Township. The proposed new assessment district that extends in width from Maple River to Glidden in the central part of the county, contrasts sharply with a maximum width of five miles on the south boundary line of Grant Township in the pres ent district. Hearing August 14 Property owners in the territory involved in the proposed annexation have been notified of a public hearing in the courthouse on Aug. 14 at 10 am. Objections to annexation of the property into the dis trict can be made at that time. Decisions on the inclusion or exclusion of property rests with the board of trustees, but appeals can be made from those decisions to the district court, attorneys for the trustees pointed out.
