V. Stuart Perry was in charge of the program. Don Pratt, a recently - named Iowa Master Farmer, was moderator. Other speakers were Louis Conner, Jim Burdine and Roy V. Copp. Mr. Conner, who farms 286 acres, was selected by the Carroll County seed committee to grow a crop of certified Burnett oats seed which he recently harvested. Mr. Conner estimated the yield of 80 bushels to the acre. He explained that the oats are of a pure strain, free of taeds and other contamination. His seed- will be made available to other farmers through the county seed group; Joined Association To grow the oats, Mr. Conner was required to join the Iowa Crop Improvement association, paying a $10 charge on the first acre and 70 cents for each additional acre. The cost covers the expense of Iowa State College in sending out inspectors to check his fields. The seed had to be isolated from any other fields of oats—28 feet away from the nearest if broadcast and 12 feet if drilled. Also required was a history of the ground on which the oats were to be grown. Mr. Conner will clean, bag and tag the oats before they leave his farm. Mr. Copp said he had been in the purebred hog business for nearly 40 years, specializing in Chester Whites. «He has been showing at.county fairs since 1921, missing only during the war years when the fairs were closed, and at the state fair since 1931. At the 1952 state fair be showed the top $1,000 junior champion. For 37 years he has held a sale each year that has attracted buyers from wide distances. Assisted by a son, Mr. Copp raises 450 to 500 hogs each year, about half for purebred purposes. He keeps 50 to 60 spring boars each year. Some of his hogs have been sold in Mexico and Italy. Recalls Depression Sale Mr. Copp recalled the ups and downs of the hog business, pointing^out one of his worst experiences was a sale on the day the banks were closed during the depression.

Notice of the proposal was filed last Thursday, Dale Carpenter, Coon Rapids attorney said. The situation arose when the joint boards of Carroll, Audubon, Guthrie and Greene counties recently failed to reach a decision on a request by residents of about 16 sections in Viola Township to join the reorganized Coon Rapids school district. Under the proposal filed last week by the Audubon county board, objectors to inclusion into the Audubon Community School District may be heard at a Sept. 16 hearing in Audubon. Proposed boundary lines and date of an election will be set at the hearing, Carroll County Superintendent B. G. Halverson explained. Mr. Halverson pointed out that the action of the Audubon board dims the chances of Coon Rapids gaining about 16 sections from Viola Township.

Says Smoking and Drinking by Young People Up DES MOINES Iff) — Juvenile smoking and drinking "slowly increases every year while public concern diminishes at the same rate," Carl Parks, chief juvenile probation officer, said Monday. Parks, who based his view on a recent study he made of juvenile cases he has on file, attributed the increase to the smoking and drinking habits of some parents and to high-power salesmanship. "Our population is constantly bombarded with a type of salesmanship that makes these things sound wonderful, and consequently many people cease to think of them as evil and no longer care," he said. An increasing number of offenses by youngsters can be "directly attributable to "alcohol," the officer said. P^arks said that prior to World War II youngsters didn't smoke and drink nearly as much. "Many of them learned bad habits in the service, but now it's gotten so they smoke and drink even before military age,'-' he said. Ike's Position on Civil Rights Bill Unchanged Opposes Limits, Backs 4 Objectices, Sen. Knowland Reports WASHINGTON M» — Sen. Knowland (R-Calif) said after a White House conference Tuesday that President Eisenhower is supporting the four-fold objectives of the administration's civil rights bill now under attack in the Senate. Knowland, the Senate Republican leader, said Eisenhower's position remains as it was stated in a written statement last week. In the statement, Eisenhower said he hopes the bill will provide for protection of civil rights in general, as well an voting rights. He also called for establishment of a civil rights commission and a new civil rights division in the Justice Department. Opposes Limitations Knowland said Eisenhower's reiteration of this position at a meeting with GOP congressional leaders could be interpreted as indicating the President opposes efforts to narrow the bill's scope to provide only for protection of voting rights. This issue has been put before the Senate by Sens Anderson (D- NM) and Aiken (R-Vt) with an amendment to strikeout the provision of the House-passed bill aimed at enforcement of racial integration and other civil rights decisions. Knowland said the leaders did not discuss with Eisenhower an amendment by Sen. Bricker (R- Ohio), offered in an attempt to save part of this section of the bill. Bricker proposed that enforcement action on general civil rights could be undertaken only when the President issued a directive. Knowland said he is confident the Senate will reach a vote Tuesday on the issue a' narrowing the bill's scope. "1 am ready to agree to a time to vote on that question," he said. "I think we can get such an agreement." Sees 'Effective' Bill Knowland said he expects the Senate will pass an "effective" bjll in the next few weeks. The Anderson-Aiken amendment would knock out most of section 3 of the bill. Its backers are claiming enough votes lo put it over, but Knowland said he thought there Civil Right See Page 11 EIGHT TEEN-AGERS DIE . . .

Postal Pay Raise Given House Okay WASHINGTON un — The House Tuesday passed a bill granting an across the board pay raise of $546 a year for 518,000 postal workers. There were predictions of a presidential veto if the Senate also passes the measure, estimated to raise government costs 318 million dollars annually. The vote was 379-38. This is far above the two-thhds majority that would be necessary to enact the legislation over a veto. Voting for the bill were 217 Democrats and 162 Republicans. Against it were 9 Democrats and 29 Republicans. A Senate com mitt ee has approved a 7Vi per cent pay increase —about 5 per cent below the House figure—plus some upward cost of living adjustments for the postal workers. The average salary of postal workers is now about $4,340 a year. The talk of a possible veto stems from President Eisenhower's expressed opposition to any general pay increase for federal workers at this time on grounds the government as well as private citizens should avoid anything that could add to inflationary pressures. Outlook for School Bill Not Too Good: Martin WASHINGTON Ifl - House Republican Leader Martin said Tuesday President Eisenhower is "not entirely satisfied" with the VA- billion-dollar school aid bill but probably would accept it if Congress passes the measure. Martin said, however, that "the outlook is not too good" for passage by Congress of the compromise measure. House debate was scheduled to begin Tuesday. The Massachusetts Republican spoke with newsmen at the White House after he and other GOP congressional leaders had held their weekly conference with Eisenhower.

' The Pentagon announcement emphasized that "draft calls for the Army will not be eliminated in the near future because of the reduced strengths." The announcement added: "Some of the Army's 50,000 decline in strength will be accomplished through stricter screening of its personnel, particularly those desiring to re-enlist.

It differs in several respects from an administration bill which would provide $1,200,000,000 in grants to the states over a four-year period. There was no indication after Tuesday's meeting that Eisenhow er would wage a personal campaign in favor of the school bill Some members of Congress have been saying he would have to do so to get the bill passed. Martin said he didn't know whether Eisenhower would play an "Active role" in trying to get the bill enacted. "While he is not entirely satisfied with the legislation as it comes out of the (education) committee, he regards it as a start," Martin said. Could Revise. Later Martin apparently meant the administration could try to revise the program in later years once it was adopted. He said he couldn't "predict with any certainty" that Republicans would support the present measure. Senate Republican Leader Know•land, who also talked with report' ers after the White House meeting, did not list the school aid bill among the legislative propo sals which he said probably will come before the Senate after it concludes its civil rights debate. Rep. Kelley (D-Pa), chief author of the compromise house bill, said in advance of House debate that "if we don't get a bill this year, we won't get any." He noted that backers had made an unsuccessful try to win House passage last year.
