Lyndon B. Johnson (D-Tex) predicted Monday the Senate will not pass the administration's civil rights bill unless it is limited solely to the protection of voting rights. Johnson, the Senate Democratic leader, told his colleagues that a provision of the House-passed bill under which the federal govern ment could move toward the en forcement of racial integration "complicates and confuses the is sue." "The Senate will have to get that part out of the bill if it is going to pass any bill at all," he said, Johnson said "there are many people who are ready to go as far as is legitimately necessary" to guarantee the right to vole. But he said "they are not willing to complicate a simple and direct issue." Sens. Knowland (R-Calif) and Humphrey (D-Minn) have proposed an amendment to repeal an old law permitting the use of federal troops to carry out court orders. This would strike out a provision linking the pending bill to the old law. Complicates Issue Johnson said that, with or without this amendment, part 3 of the bill—which would authorize enforcement of general civil rights— "complicates the issue beyond human understanding." "One thing is apparent," he said. "Nobody knows what this section means. The only clear certainty is that it grants broad powers—and the limit of those powers is undefined. "It has been argued that the President would not use these powers. I think that statement is probably accurate. I have confidence in the good faith and integrity of our President. "I am confident that the President would never sanction the use of the 'third degree.' But my con- Civil Rights .... Sec Page 7 By HARRISON WEBER j (Iowa Dally Pr?ss Assn. Writer) DES MOINES — A series of liquor raids has results in several knotty problems. They include; (1) Use of highway patrolmen in liquor raids, and (2) workload o! the Stafe Bureau of Criminal Investigation. Surprise raids cn six taverns in Fort Dodge and one at Barnum brought the problems to a head. About 16 law enforcement officers participated in the simultaneous raids on July 12, including five agents of the State Bureau of Criminal Investigation and six highway patrolmen. 11 Fieldmen The State Bureau of Criminal Investigation now has 11 fieldmen and six of these have been assigned to special duties in conjunction with the investigation of highway commission activity. Four agents have been assigned to the legislative committee on "political influences" and two have been detailed to Governor Herschel Loveless in his investigation. This leaves only five fieldmen to take care of routine matters and any emergency which may arise. In recent years the bureau has had twice as much manpow er as it does today, but the workload has not been lessened. In fact, if anything the duties of the bureau have been increased. This is one of the reasons R. W. (Doc) Nebergall resigned as chief of the bureau. The Fort Dodge raids were ordered by Webster County Attorney Arthur H. Johnson, a Republican. In the closing weeks of last year, Dayton Countryman, who was then attorney general, had six state agents .detailed to his office in an attempt to make the state "cracker-dry." Since Norman Erbe took over the reigns as attorney general the first of the year, the policy has been for local authorities to initiate the raids. New Policy Likely If more county attorneys request patrolmen to help carry out be made. If such a situation does bill and the capital improvement other day, Governot Loveless said develop, it is expected that Gov- measures, so it's up to him to call he' managed to get in nine holes ernor Loveless, Attorney General a special session without any prod- of golf while on vacation at Lake Erbe and the new safety commissioner, Russell Brown, who takes over Aug. 1, will band together and take the position that the patrolman's first duty is to protect the public on the highways. ^ Conference with Loveless? Republican leaders converging on Clear Lake this weekend for the annual Governor's Day may decide to set up a conference with Governor Loveless in an attempt to settle some of the issues involved in the muddled-up tax situation. Republicans say that Loveless ding by them. However, sonic Republicans believe that in the pub-' lie interest a conference should be arranged. One influential Republican legislator suggested setting up appropriate television facilities so both sides could express their viewpoints and "to set the record straight for the people." Golf Parlance Governor Loveless and Speaker of the House William Mooty recently exchanged verbal blasts over legislative action by expressing themselves using golf par raids, a new policy will probably i vetoed the 2!4 P<r cent sales tax! lance. At his new<= conference the Okoboji. One newsman asked if hej found any traps on the fairway. Loveless replied, "Yes, but Bill didn't dig them." Albino Snake State conservation officials plan to display an albino bull snake at their exhibit at the State Fair here this fall. Tlx- snake was discovered by a farmer in the Council Bluffs area. The snake, which is three feet long, has pink eyes and is grey in color. Bull snakes are usually brown with black spots. Conservation officers said the possibility of an albino snake being born is about 1 in 10,000.

By The Associated Press Iowa's 1957 motor vehicle fatality toll stood at 376 Monday- three more than a year ago—following three separate accidents Sunday in which four persons were killed. The victims were identified as Leonard P. Nyce. 43, Ottumwa; Mrs. Miriam Ardell Foulk Cole, 22. Elmira, N.V.: Mrs. Dorothy Flickenger, 49, Dayton, Iowa, and Mrs. Opal Sandstoe, about 46, Beaman. Near Albia A headon collision between the car in which Nyce was driving alone and a vehicle in which Mrs., Cole was a passenger took their lives. The accident occurred on U.S. 34 east of Albia. Peter Labasky, 26, Elmira, N.Y., driver of the car in which Mrs. Cole was riding, was hospitalized at Albia with fractured ribs. Mrs.- Flickenger was injured fatally when the car she was driving was struck broadside by another auto on Highway 169 about eight miles south of Ogden. Mrs. Flickenger's 17-year-old daughter escaped serious injury but both were thrown from the vehicle when it rolled following the impact. Audubon Youth Sheriff Steve Boilieu said the other car was driven by Gene Andreasen, 16, Audubon, who said he did not stop for a stop sign. Andreasen, who received a ticket for failing to stop, escaped serious injury as did his six passengers. Mrs. Sandstoe was killed in a two-car collision at a county road intersection 3 miles north of Gladbrook. She and her 13-year-old I daughter, Christine, were passengers in a car driven by her husband, Ingreld. The driver of the other car was Robert Sienknecht, 17, Lincoln, Iowa. reasonably high prices being paid by the government."

Hebert said the situation was "bordering on actual fraud." Rep. Hardy <D-Va) asserted "it looks to me like General Motors is trying to be bigger than the i United States government," and | By The Associated Press Three tornado funnels were sighted and heavy rain fell at some places as a line of thunderstorms moved across Iowa late Sunday. Two of the tornado funnels apparently failed to touch ground after being sighted in the Colfax area near Newton. The third caused some damage in the Washburn area southeast of Waterloo.

The Tribal uprising is threatening a new Middle East crisis. Lloyd told the House of Commons that forces opposed to the British-supported Sultan of Muscat and Oman "have clearly received assistance from outside territories." He did not elaborate. But the British press has been charging that the uprising has been incited by Saudi Arabia, a friend of the United States. Precautionary Moves Lloyd said "small-scale precautionary movements" of British forces already have taken place in response to a plea by the Sultan for support. Saudi Arabia has received arms from the United States, Ijut Lloyd said he had no knowledge that arms used in the rebellion "are of American origin." . "We know there are modern arms which must have come from territories outside Muscat," he added. Lloyd made his statement after British government leaders, including top defense officials and Middle East advisers, met with Prime Minister Harold Macmillan to consider the crisis. Already Britain has taken preliminary steps to meet Sultan Said Bin Taimur's appeal for help. A government spokesman said "small, precautionary troop movements" have been ordered to the area which may be rich in oil.

' The airman, Donald Wheeler of Cortez, Colo., also was sentenced to lose $200 .in pay and reduced to the rank of basic airman—private—from airman third class. Wheeler contended that he had "challenged" an order to get a "white sidewall" haircut because he had received a regulation Air Force trim only the day before the order was given. A "white sidewall" strips the. hair from the ears to the crown, leaving only a fringe on top. After the court-martial board returned its verdict, Wheeler asked: "Can you imagine anybody going to jail far not getting a haircut?" The charges against Wheeler did not mention haircuts and the Air Force contended it was a "rou tine" matter of military discipline. The Air Force said the action involved only "disobedience of a lawful order of his superior officer." The conviction and sentence will be reviewed automatically by high er Air Force authorities. The Air Force also disclosed Wheeler had been convicted by a court-martial last February of failure to report to bis place of duty. On that count he was reduced from airman second class to airman third class and forfeited ISO in pay. Members of the court-marial board Included Maj. Frank £.

(Staff Photo) Heat Wave's Toll Mounts By The Associated Press Another day of hot and humid weather appeared likely for wid« areas in the eastern half of the nation today after a weekend ol scorching temperatures. Deaths attributed to the heat and drownings mounted. At least 39 persons drowned as millions flocked to lakes and streams seeking relief from the oppressive heat. Midwest Relief There was some possibility of a little relief in northern Midwest areas but none in the sun • baked areas in the Middle Atlantic states southward through Georgia. The Eastern Seaboard, from Virginia to New York, sweltered in the summer's hottest weather Sunday. Thermometers bubbled past the 100-degree mark in many cities, including Baltimore, Washington and Philadelphia. The 103 reading al Baltimore was near the record 104 for the date. Washington sizzled in 101 heat, the highest reading in the nation's capital in three years. The millions in New York City felt just as hot with a torrid 97.3 degrees, and in Wilmington, Del., the mercury registered 102. Readings in the 90s wore general in many other sections of tha country and high humidity added to the discomfort. Many Drownings Michigan reported 21 persona drowned over the weekend, while in New York there were 10 drown­ ings. There were at least 3 each in Illinois and Colorado and 2 in New Jersey. Two men died in Kansas City, Kan., hospitals after suffering heat exhaustion. A golfer collapsed and died on a course near Chicago and in New York a man died after a tennis match. A cool front that had been fairly stationary for several days across northern Wisconsin, Upper Michigan and the northern Great Lakes region started to move southward during the night. Showers and thunderstorms broke out in a narrow belt from the upper Great Lakes region southwestward into parts of th« central and southern Plains. 2 YOUNG BROTHERS DROWN ; FORT MADISON tfl-Two broth-i ers, James, U,.«M Robert CoBtoeiJ? .# 7, drowned iq Izaac Walton lMku& Lake near here Sunday when t|ey apparently stepped Into a SMW'-'M hole white Mtiltm. ,
