Gen. Norman Erbe said Thursday it appears that present operations of an oddsmaking establishment at Davenport are not in violation of either state or federal gambling laws. The attorney general said further in a letter to Chief R. W. Nebergall of the Iowa Bureau of Criminal Investigation that he assumes activities of such establishments at Davenport "will be continuously scrutinized so as to insure that no violation of our law exists." Held Investigation Erbe said he drew his conclusions after a careful review by his staff and himself of reports given him by Nebergall. The reports followed an investigation by state agents and Scott County officials of the Davenport office of Athletic Publications Inc.

Soviet Defense Minister Georgi Zhukov, appeared today to be a distinct possibility. Eisenhower, himself, said No Relief in Sight From Sizzling Heat By The Associated Press The mercury again headed for levels above 100 degrees in parts of Iowa as a scorching heat wave continued to blister the state Thursday. No relief was in sight.

The Soviet Embassy reflects in one comment, at least, a generally favorable attitude, and several U.S. Senators of both parties said they thought it would be a good idea. No Arrangement* U.S. officials said, however, that so far no steps have been taken Harvest operations have taken the spotlight on Carroll County farms this week v/ith combining of oats well underway. "Yields have been above average and the quality has been good," W. H. Brown, county extension director, said Thursday. A number of forms in the county have reported yields of 50 to 60 bushels per acre and some farms have had yields over the 60-bushel mark, Mr. Brown said.

Erbe said that there is no evidence that the 1 establishment at Davenport is doing anything but supplying betting odds on professional baseball, professional football and college football. The attorney general added that Hirschfield still maintains Minneapolis as the headquarters for various sports publications "It appears and review of the gambling laws of the State of Iowa," Erbe's letter said, "that the operation of Mr. Hirschfield within the State of Iowa as presently described does' not come within the purview of our criminal laws pertaining to gambling now on the bonks and ... there is seemingly no violation of federal law involved." Erbe said a copy of the letter also had been sent to Gov. Herschel Loveless.

Submitted to Quiz Hirschfield himself last week voluntarily submitted to questioning by Scott County authorities and made books and records available for study, officials there reported. Hirschfield said he had no clients in Iowa for his oddsmaking service., < Erbe noted that' Nebergall had received cooperation from the Scott County sheriff and county attorney's office in making the- investigation of Hirschfield's firm. Reports on which Erbe based his findings included material from state agents T. A. Thompson and Robert D.

If Moscow seems cool toward the idea in contacts with U.S. diplomats there—or perhaps contacts between the embassy and the State Department here—then the whole idea may die quietly. Voting on Use of Troops May Start Monday Fight Mounting Senate Sentiment to Limit Bill to Voting Rights WASHINGTON '(A — Sen. Knowland (R-Calif), who' already has proposed to strike down the most controversial part of the administration's civil rights bill, said Thursday "other clarifying amend ments" undoubtedly will be of fered. Knowland, the Senate Republican leader, gave no details. But' he told newsmen he expected the Senate to start voting Monday on Section 3 of the bill. This section would authorize the attorney general to obtain federal court injunctions for the enforcement of civil rights in general. *Now under debate is an amendment by Sens. Anderson (D-NM) and Aiken (R-Vt) to strike out Section 3. If this should be adopted, the new enforcement authority conferred on the attorney general by the bill would be limited to the protection of voting rights.

WASHINGTON I* - Supporters of the administration's embattled foreign aid bill hoped Thursday President Eisenhower's new appeal would block further house cuts in the multi • billion - dollar measure. Eisenhower said Wednesday night a 400-million-dollar cut the House voted tentatively in«his defense support economic aid request "can be considered as no less than a threat to our nation's security and that of the free world." His statement came shortly after the House voted 106-100 to allow 500 million dollars for the pro gram. Eisenhower originally ..had asked 900 millions. The Senate-cut the request to 800 millions, and the House Foreign Affairs Committee reduced the figure to 700 millions.. When it came oat of committee the bill carried a total of $2,242, 333,000—600 millions below the El senhower request and 375 millions below the Senate figure. Before the House convened Thursday, Rep. Carhahan»(D-Mo), floor manager for the bill, said that if foreign aid supporters succeeded in marshaling their forces overnight, there was a "possibility" the House might reverse itself and approve the Senate figure of 800 millions in economic aid. But Carnahan also conceded the House might vote further cuts in other programs before it passes the big measure.

Faber of Des Moines, a representative of the Iowa American Legion, appealed to the Supreme Court from dismissal of the case in Polk County District Court last May 31. Faber had agreed to be the plaintiff in a friendly suit to clear questions on the legality of the act before any bonus payments can be made. The* World War II Bonus Board which would handle payment of Korean veteran bonuses has received many letters from veterans Inquiring as to the prospects of payment of a bonus. The board has told the veterans that the act must clear all legal hurdles, that the' bonds must be sold and administrative arrangements set up before any payments can be made. At best, this would be many months. About 90,000 veterans are eligible for payments. By JOHN BECKLER LONG BEACH, Calif. Itfv-A "go- for-broke" gamble in which two beautiful girls pooled their money to back one of them in the Miss Universe contest paid off today for lovely Leona Gage, 21, the new Miss United States of America. The tall, raven-haired beauty from Glen Byrnie, Md., who came west with her 24-year-old cousin, a $45 gown and high hopes, won the coveted crown Wednesday night and will now compete in the international phase of the contest. The gamble that led to the thrill- packed climax was taken two months ago when Leona and her cousin, Barbara Gage, who make their home together, scraped together $45 and went shopping for a gown so Leona could enter the Miss Maryland contest. "I had $35 and she had $10," said Barbara, breathless with excitement as she watched the pearl- studded Miss U.S.A. crown being placed on ,the dark locks of her cousin. She added: "We had made the money mod- Miss U.S.A. ... See Page 13 Council Bluffs Girl Foils Short of Victory LONG BEACH. Calif. W-Judith Ann Hall, a 20-year-old Council Bluffs blonde, had fallen short Thursday of becoming the second successive lowan to tread the path to being crowned Miss Universe. Miss Hall, the 34-24-35 Miss Iowa, advanced Wednesday into the group of 15 semifinalists in the contest to select a Miss United States. But she was eliminated when the field was further reduced to five contestants to pick this country's entry in the Miss Universe contest. Knowland said this amendment, j together with President Eiscn-! hower's news conference statements Wednesday, "should remove this specter of the Army and the Navy and the Marines being sent into the South to enforce integration." . The Knowland - Humphrey amendment was a reply to arguments by Southerners that troops could be used to enforce integration orders. Sen. Russell <D-Ga> said this move constituted an admission he was correct when he told the Senate two week." ago that the House bill would authorize "bayonet" enforcement of integration in the South. Knowland and Humphrey acted after President Eisenhower had told his news conference he couldn't imagine any circumstances that would ever induce him to use federal troops to enforce court orders. Charges Blunder Humphrey said Atty. Gen. Brownell "made a blunder" in tying the bill to the troop-use provisions. He said he hoped "any reference ... to a period In American history that \z a dismal and sad period" would come out.

The inveterate golfer who hasn't slowed down because of advancing years is Austin Dougherty of Carroll.. * "I'll be 84 in August and I've been playing this course since 1922," he said. Averages 45 Card Dougherty plays an average of about 54 holes each week and says his score averages about 45 over the nine-hole course. "I don't believe I ever played the course when it was any hotter than it was today," he said Tuesday evening when he came in with a 47 card. "There wasn't a breath of air out there and that's what made it seem so hot. But it didn't seem to bother me any more than it did some of the younger fellows," he said. The veteran golfer is of the opinion the game keeps an older man feeling young but may make a younger man feel old. Pleasure, Exercise "I just play for pleasure and for ed my drives or hurt my putting game any to speak of," he said. He considers Brook's Beach and Fort Dodge the toughest courses he has ever played bat favors the Carroll course over all others and says he likes to play with the same group as much as possible. Set Up Temporary Feed Mix Facilities Lawyers Move For Acquittal of Remaining 11 Trial Considered Land* mar!; for Future Civil Rights Cases By RELMAN MORIN KNOXVILLE, Tenn. un Charges of criminal contempt against four of the defendants in the "Clinton trial," landmark civil rights case, were dismissed Thursday and the defense promptly moved for acquittal of the remaining 11. The lawyers entered a blanket- denial of the government's accusation that the defendants conspired to violate a federal injunction prohibiting interference with the en* rollment of Negro students in Clinton High School last year. The four were cleared on the motion of U.S. Dist. Atty. John C. Crawford Jr. He said, "in my opinion, the evidence is not sufficient to warrant conviction of these men." List of Freed Those freed, all from the Clinton area, were Chris Foust, 35, school bus driver; John B. Long, 31, house painter; Thomas Sander's, 42, utilities firm employe; and J. L. Coley, 43, carpenter. Ross Barnett, former president of the Mississippi bar, opened the defense arguments. A separate motion.for acquittal was made by J. Benjamin Simmons of Washington, D.C., who represents John Kasper, Northern segregationist leader, but not the 10 Tennessee men and women. Barnett argued in attacking the conspiracy charge that the fact some of the accused were seen in the back room of a Clinton restaurant with Kasper was no .evidence of conspiracy. A policeman had testified to night meetings in the restaurant. He said Kasper and the others had a, typewriter and were "doing paperwork." Similarly, Barnett said, membership in the Tennessee White Citizens Council was no evidence of conspiracy. Referring to the riots on Clinton's main street on the night of Friday, Aug. 31, Barnett said, "Yes, there were a thousand or more people there. They were excited. They were nervous. Those things have to be taken into consideration. But I say again this is no evidence of conspiracy." After Chiof Defense Counsel Robert L. Dobbs of Memphis moved for the directed verdict of acquittal, Taylor merely nodded his head without committing himself as to what his decision would be. Claim No Evidence The statement setting forth reason for the defense motion asserted, point by point, that the government had not shown evi- Clinton Trial ... See Page 13 TAKE TWO, THEY'RE SMALL ...
