Two Democrats—Reps. Shufford (NO and Haley <Fla)—joined the 14 committee Republicans in voting against the' bill. The action was taken on a House bill introduced by Rep. Pfost (D- Idaho). It left alive in a subcommittee a second bill already passed by the Senate. However, opponents of the project said Wednesday's vote means it is dead. A Technicality They described the lack of action on the Senate-approved bill as a technicality. They said a meeting of the full committee's irrigation subgroup probably wduld be called shortly to postpone indefinitely any action on that measure. Prior to acting on the bill, the committee voted unanimously to expunge from the record remarks Children Down GOP Leader Charges 'Grandstanding; Governor Replies Illinois Fugitive Admits Killing Two Policemen Skeptical Police Try To Separate Fact Frorn Fancy in Confession OAKLAND, Calif. W - Police tried .to separate fact from fancy Wednesday in the boastful stories of a young Illinois fugitive who claims to have killed two policemen. Capt. Anthony Bolger said dark- haired William T. Allen, 25, a husky six-footer, told of killing two policemen in El Segundo, Calif., and shooting other officers in St. Louis and Nebraska. Planned Kidnaping Bolger also said Allen told him he went to the Los Angeles' area "in hopes of kidnaping a movie star like Marilyn Monroe or Elvis Presley." "There are parts of Allen's story In which I do not place much credence," Bolger told newsmen. "But we are investigating the matter fully." Allen escaped Feb. 9 as sheriff's deputies were taking him from a Chester, 111., mental hospital to Chicago for trial on charges of robbing taverns. He was arrested Tuesday night In Oakland by officers John Dailey and Lamar Dunster, who said he told them he shot to death policemen Richard Phillips. 29, and Milton Curtis, 25, at El Segundo early Monday.

Tlje State Department of Public Instruction said Wednesday this compares with 74 cents paid on each dollar's worth of valid claims for the 1955-56 school year. Claims Over $1 Million Total claims for the last year for group and individual training amounted to $1,044,300. The state aid appropriation was only $675,000, the same as for the year be-j fore. However, the 1957 Legislature provided $800,000 a year for the next two years. u r. /r» »T U>M ^ i i The claims have been sent to by Rep.^ Miller (R-Neb) la* week- state comptroller . s office for in which he said Mrs. Pfost had 1 sought to intimidate him by threatening to withhold action on bills pertaining - to Nebraska. Apologizes Miller had asked last week that his remarks be taken from the record and had apologized to Mrs. Pfost. The Idaho congresswoman, who denied Miller's accusation, said Wednesday she realized it had been made in the heat of debate and should be stricken. The Pfost bill would have authorized construction of a high federal-built dam in the Snake River stretch of the Idaho-Oregon proration to the various districts, and county boards of education. Two kinds of programs are being carried out. In one, there is service for individual children. This includes transportation to school, or home instruction. These claims are paid in full. The other program is for groups of children.

In his prepared talk, Mooty took recognition of suggestions that he should "run for governor'' or "for lieutenant governor" but merely commented that other people "say 1 should run for home." He said Loveless, by his veto, "killed all appropriations for construction and major repairs for all of the state schools, for all of the state institutions, and for all of the state parks." Some of the projects, Mooty said, "are vitally important not British Hold Up Air Attack In Uprisings LONDON UP—Britain held up air strikes against rebel tribesmen in the Persian Gulf sultanate of Muscat and Oman Wednesday after expiration of an ultimatum for them to. call off an uprising.

The formula for the aid calls for Mooty also said the Democrats "do nothing to help reapportionment" when it comes to voting on Senate Heads Toward Vote on Civil Rights Expected to Reduce Eisenhower Bill to Voting Rights Measure WASHINGTON UP — Sen. Mansfield (D-Mont) urged the Senate Wednesday "in a spirit of reason" to convert the administration's civil rights bill into a measure aimed primarily at protecting voting rights. But Sen, Clifford P. Case (R-j NJ) said that "all of the rights! guaranteed by the Constitution are J of equal standing" and pleaded for retention of power for the attorney general to initiate civil suits to uphold rights of children to attend nonsegregated schools. The arguments were voiced as the Senate pointed toward a mid- afternoon vote expected to approve an amendment stripping the bill of enforcement powers except for the protection of the right to vote. Mansfield, the assistant Democratic floor leader, said that Part 3 of the bill, which the amendment would strike, "is simply a ressurection of a reconstruction statute. It can reopen old wounds, but it cannot heal them." Case argued on the other hand that the proposed civil suits-injunction procedure is needed because existing criminal statutes for protection of civil rights have been ineffective. "The present criminal procedure appeals to the civil rights opponents simply because it doesn't OUavio Potlastrini 2 Sons Take Oxer Candy Kitchen Here Ottavio Pollastrini, owner of the Experimental Black-Topping on Four Miles Estimated Cost $6,000 Per Mile Less Than Present Methods Bids for two experimental type black-topping projects in Carroll County were accepted in Ames on Tuesday by the Iowa Highway Commission, County Engineer J.

Bolger also said Allen was asked to identify the uniforms of the officers he said he shot, but couldn't. Allen was identified by St. Louis police as the man who shot Police Cpl. Joseph Moose in a tavern holdup June 22, 1956. Moose recovered and returned to duty, Bolger said Allen was not specific about shooting an officer in Nebraska, but Bolger said he had learned from Nebraska authorities that no policeman had been slain in that state since 1937. Allen was arrested when he returned to his car. A girl companion, Betty. Aguilar, 21, Los Angeles, and Peter Bologna, with whom Allen was staying, were booked for investigation of robbery. Bolger said Miss Aguilar disputed the time Allen said they spent in Los Angeles. She said they arrived there Sunday night, slept in their car, and left for Oakland around noon Monday. Bolger said Allen told him he threw the .22 caliber revolver he used to shoot the El Segundo officers into the Oakland estuary. The inspector said he would invest!Fugitive .

After Republicans and two Southern Democrats combined to beat the bill in subcommittee, the coalition has tried unsuccessfully to kill the bill in the full committee af each of the «last two weekly sessions. Two weeks ago, pro-Hells Canyon Democrats boycotted the committee session and- the meeting was canceled for lack of a quorum. Last week, Democrats successfully talked their way through the two-hour session, thereby preventing a vote.

Reverse Roles The sons have been employed by their father in the store; now the procedure is reversed and he is assisting them. Mr. and Mrs. Pollastrini and sons came to Carroll from Clinton in June, 1938, when Mr. Pollastrini went into business for himself.* Prior to that time, he had worked at his brother's ice cream parlor. Mr. and Mrs. Pollastrini are natives of Italy. In 1951 they re turned to their native land to visit Mrs. Pollastrini's relatives for five months. It was Mr. Pollastrini's third trip back and Mrs. Pollastrini's second. Worked in Clinton Mr. Pollastrini came to the United States alone from Italy in 1908 at the age of 16 years to work for his brothers in Chicago. Six years later, he returned to Italy, coming back to the States in 1920, when he began working for his brother in Clinton. Mr, and Mrs Pollastrini were married in Clin ton. In 1931 the entire family went to Italy, staying for six years and returning to Clinton in 1937. They located in Carroll the next year. for aid for individual instruction in the last year, in the amount of $138,375 in valid claims. The number of districts was somewhat higher than for the previous year. The amount was an increase of nearly $9,000. There were 101 districts which qualified for aid for group instruction, totaling $905,925. The number of districts was somewhat fewer than the year before. Lange said this was because of the tendency of county boards to sponsor the programs. The amount was up by more than $80,000. Fighting broke out last week when followers of the exiled religious leader of Oman swept down from the mountains to attack villages in the sultanate.

Carroll, Spencer Pastors to Exchange Pulpits Monthly Treasurer Adfnits Taking $200,000 In County's Funds CANNELTON, lnd. - Perry County employes Wednesday faced the possibility of no pay this month after their youthful county treasurer confessed he embezzled about $200,000 in county funds since 1952, Earl C. Kieser, 34, Democratic treasurer since 1948, admitted Tuesday that he juggled the books to obtain money for his own personal use. Prosecutor Volmar A. Franz said the county may be in serious trouble, with only $2,800 instead of a normal $230,000 to $250,000 in the treasury. "I'm real sorry about this." Kieser said. "It has been an anchor around my neck. I feel better now that the break has come." Kieser, father of two children, was charged with embezzlement and released on a $25,000 property bond.

The twin-engine P2V was the same type bomber as the one found earlier Tuesday in northern Italy mountains. The Navy said the plane which vanished Friday had U aboard, but rescue teams said they found,what appeared to be remaines of 15 or 16. Another Neptune crashed during the Italy search with 10 aboard. Only one survived. to the power of 10,000 tons of TNT. A Navy blimp—unmanned—was tethered on the test site within the blast area in a continuing study of blast and radiation effects. Dust and darkness hid its fate in the moments after the detonation. At a range of 4% miles, more than twice the distance from ground zero than the military observers, 18 scientists withstood the blast in a heavy shelter. They were there to study instruments measuring blast and radiation effects. Observers at News Nob said that the shock wave from the "sub- nominal" blast was one of the strongest felt during the current test series, which has included several stronger explosions. The nominal device is equal to the 20,000 -ton punch of the Word War II A-bombs. The delegation of foreign observers witnessing the explosion included civil defense experts from England, Canada, France. Germany, Italy, Turkey, the Netherlands, Sweeden and Spain. By a 61-29 vote, the Senate rejected a proposal by Sen. Bricker (R-Ohio) to permit the attorney general to move in the broad field of civil rights only when directed to do so by the President. Then the chamber rolled up an 81-8 count against an amendment by Sen. Cooper (R-Ky) to authorize the attorney general to seek injunctions when an- individual complained a conspiracy existed to deny him any civil right in defiance of a court order. Adoption of the Anderson-Aiken proposal would confine the bill's enforcement provisions to cases involving alleged denial of the right to vote. In these cases, the attorney general could move on Civil Rights ....

The jury was sent to bed and, told to return for further deliberation at 11 a.m. Thursday. < General Sessions Court Judge John A. Mullen gave the jury, the directive when it reported its failure to reach agreement at 8:30 a.m. The jury had been given the case at 7 p.m. Tuesday.

Program on Iowa Highways Presented MANNING — A program on Iowa highways was presented at a meeting of the Manning Rotary Club Tuesday night at Legion hall. William F. Ohde Jr. was in charge. James W.

Mr. Wilson discussed the work and objectives of the roads organization. The l.G.R.A. film depicted the progress on Iowa roads ! and the present needs. Wage Boosts for 650,000 As Costs Hit a New High Airport* Derour While Building New Bridge A bridge that formerly spanned Drainage Ditch No. 23 (Storm Creek) on Highway 30, is being set up on a rural road leading to the Carroll airport. County crews are in charge- The ainport roac 1 will be closed for about 30 days. The detour to the airport is as follows: Turn south at the Drive-In theater on Highway 30, go a mile and a half south, a mile east and back north to the airport. t WASHINGTON (*—The government's cost of living index bounced up another one-half of one per cent in June to its 10th record high in as many months. The increase, reported Wednesday by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, means that some 650,000 workers in the electrical manufacturing, aircraft, trucking and construction industries will have their pay increased by from two to four cents hourly under contracts geared to the consumer price index. The spendable earnings of factory workers and the buying power of their paychecks also turned upward slightly in June, causing the first rise in "real earnings" since last December. The buying power of the average worker's weekly paycheck had been declining all this year because of price increases and shorter working hours. In June the trend was halted at least temporarily. The bureau said spendable earnings increased by about 1 per cent or W cents weekly. Food prices were reported to have jumped 1.4 per cent from May to June. That was the major factor in the advance which carried the consumer price index to 120,2 per cent of the 1947-1949 average. * However, the price advance was an across-the-board affair. The average prices of all commodities except foods rose 0.2 per cent and the cost of services—transportation, laundry, repairs, medical bills and the like—also climbed 0.2 per cent. Farmer Injured As Large Barn Burns SPENCER M-A spectacular fire which was visible miles away destroyed a 60 by 100 -foot barn on the Lester Nattress farm 11 miles northeast of Spencer Tuesday night. The barn, 1,600 bales of hay, and milking equipment were de- str6yed. Myron W. Nattress, operator of the owner, was severely burned* when he attempted to drive to safety two tractors and a combine parked near the barn. He was in good condition at a Spencer hospital Wednesday. Cause of the fire was not deter* mined but it may have started in newly baled hay. FARM FIRE CALL Firemen were called to the Norbert Rupiper farm north of Roselle early this afternoon but the call was cancelled shortly afterward. Mrs. Rupiper said gasoline spilled on the ground beneath a tractor flamed up. The tire was quickly extinguished without damage, she said.
