Hunt Killer Of Three in New Mexico HOBBS, N.M. MV-A merciless killer, whose predawn rain of bullets shot down a truck driver and two young divorcees on isolated desert roads< Tuesday, was sought today in a statewide roadblock net. The killer may have later tried to abduct a third woman. There had been speculation the slayer was the same man who shot down two policemen Monday at El Segundo, Calif., but police at Oakland, Calif., said today they were holding a 25-year-old fugitive from Illinois who had admitted the crime. , Officers called the killer "a madman." He pumped at. least five bullets into the body of truck driver J. D. Cantrell, 27, Carlsbad, N.M. He then drove the two women, Mrs. Barbara Ed'.vards Lemmons and Mrs. Dorothy Fern Gjbson, both 23, of Hobbs, about 29 miles from where Cantrell's body was discovered and left them lying dead in a quiet, grassy draw. Six empty .22-caliber shells were found near the bodies. n the afternoon, a sleepy-eyed man in his 30s tried to kidnap the postmistress of Tinnie, a village .158 miles 'northwest of the scene of the slayings. . , Postmistress Virginia Guest, 40, routed her would-bc abductor with a shot from her .38-caliber pistol after he started for his car, where he said he had "something which would make her" accompany him. • Sheriff Jewell McAdoo of Lea County said apparently Cantrell had stopped to help the two worn enjix a flat tire cn U.S. 180 about 36 miles west of this southeastern New Mexico oil center. • He was slain there. t Segregation Issue Faces New Vote In House in Battle Over School Aid ISC Degrees To Roger Koster And Claus Bunz AMES, la". — Roger Koster of Breda and Claus H. Bunz of Manning were awarded degrees at the conclusion of the first term of the summer session at Iowa State College July 24. Koster received a B. S. degree in agronomy and Bunz, in industrial engineering. Dr. J. H. Jensen, provost of Iowa State, spoke to the graduates at the morning ceremonies in State Gymnasium. A reception for the graduates and their families was held immediately afterward in Great Hall of Memorial Union, with the college, the alumni association and the class of 1957 as hosts. Degrees and certificates were awarded to 155 persons. Among the graduates was Capt. Harold Fischer, USAF, formerly of Swea -City and one of the heroes of the Korean hostilities. An outstanding combat flier, and later a prisoner of the Communists, Fischer enrolled at Iowa State after his return home. He v received his B. S. degree in industrial administration. Already admitted to the graduate college and ;on orders to report for duty with the Air Force ROTC unit at Iowa State on Aug. 1, Fischer will instruct cadets in air science during the coming year while continuing with advanced studies at the college. By MARTHA COLE WASHINGTON (fl — A segregation issue which helped kill a federal school aid bill last year comes up again today in a House already divided, ovei 1 the need for J such a program. \ Voting was expected to begin today on amendments to a IVi-bil- lion-dollar measure which would authorize 300 millions a year for fiye years, to be" matched on a 50-50 basis by the states, to build needed classrooms. Proposals to tack on an anti- segregation amendment, opposition on grounds of economy" and objections to any federal participation all combined to make chances of final passage uncer tain. Rep. Wainwright (R -NYr ;said Time* Herald, Carroll, fowl Wednesday, July 24, 1957 £ he expected' to offer an amendment which would bar federal aid to any school district practicing racial segregation in the schoolroom. The office of Rep. "Powell CD- NY) said he wan expected back from a rest and would continue to press for adoption of his own antisegregation proviso. Last year Powell was author of an' amendment similar to Wainwright's, The .House adopted Powell's amendment and then killed fhe bill. % President" Eisenhower has said the segregation issue should be kept out of the school construction measure. Wainwright told a - reporter he thought h{s amendment had a "5060" chance of passage. Rep. Roosevelt * (D-Calif) announced on the House floor Tuesday he would not support the Powell amendment this year. Roosevelt said House passage of the civil rights measure had led him to reverse his stand. The school bill also would authorize. 750 million dollars for purchase of bonds of local school district's unable' to find markets at reasonable interest rates, and another 150 million dollars to help the credit of state school financing agencies. Total federal participation thus would amount to $2,400,000,000. HEROES HONORED ... Like a page from the archives of ancient Rome, Venezuela dedicates a breathtaking memorial to her statesmen and national heroes—high point in a week-long celebration of her 146th year of Independence. Known as the "Avenue of Heroes," it is an 800-foot- long art extravaganza comprised of two 100-foot lowers, 10 huge bronze statues of Venezuela's heroes, six reflecting pools, 84 giant flower urns, and dozens of smaller statues and fountains. More than 100,000 persons turned out In Caracas for the official dedication of the three-million- dollar memorial.

I Robery Couts ! Allen was booked for, investigation of robbing an Oakland tavern, and for Chicago, St. Louis j and Los Angeles police on robbery i counts. ! Inspector Bolger said the man i talked boastfully. j "He said he headed for the) coast because he was afraid of j death in the Illinois electric chair,; and that he much preferred the \ California gas chamber," Bolger reported. • "He also said he likes to kill police because he both hates and likes cops." Bolger said Miss Aguilaf told him she first met Allen in New Orleans, and came across the country with him. ; She said that every night'Allen locked her ankles with handcuffs so she could not escape. in Nebraska near one of its state j lines. He did not give the dates, ; St. Louis police identified Allen] as the man who shot Police Cpl .i Joseph Moose in a tavern holdup ! June 22, 1956. Moose, off duty, was j shot when he attempted to stop 1 two men who had taken $100 at gunpoint from the tavern. Civil Rights- (Continued from Page 1) OAKLAND,' Calif. I* - Police said Wednesday a 25-year : old Illinois fugitive admitted shooting two policemen in El Segundo, Calif., and officers in St. Louis and Nebraska. The dark-haired, husky six-foot- j er was identified as William T. Allen, who escaped Feb/ 9 from deputy sheriffs who were taking him from a mental hospital in Chester, 111., to Chicago to stand trial for robbing some taverns. Officers John Dailey and Lamar Dunster, who arrested Allen Tuesday night, said he told them he shot the El Segundo. policemen early Monday. 1 > At El Segundo, however five persons who saw the killer were, teen-age couples robbed by the Killer, and Officer James Gilbert, wno saw the man before the killing. Traffic Violation The El Segundo officers, Richard Phillips, 29, and Milton Curtis, 25 were shot to death after stopping a man for a minor traffic violation. The Oakland officers said the talkative suspect also told them of shooting police in St. Louis and Raymond C. Heim Is Promoted in Navy (Times Herald News Service) AUBURN — Raymond C. Heim. I yeoman first class, U. S. Navy, j has received word of his promo- j Hon to chief yeoman. He is a son; of Mr. and Mrs. Edward A. Heim of Auburn. The 35-year-old petty officer is on the staff of Rea^r Admiral Leonard B. Southerland, USN, who heads two great organizations, Barrier Pacific and Airborne Early Warning Wing Pacific, at Barber's Point Naval Air Station on Oahu, Hawaii. Mr. Heim is the husband of the former Phyllis Jean Her, daughter of Mrs. Ruth Her of Lake City. The couple has four children: Robert, 10; John, 9; Thomas, 5; and Michael, three months. A 1938 graduate of Auburn High School, Heim first entered the navy Aug. 6, 1942, and was honorably discharged in October, 1945.

Since Jan. 22, 1956, he has had his present job at Oahu, Hawaii. He assists the administrative officer of the wing in his duties and supervises and' trains other enlisted personnel of his department in the- performance of their special ratings and military duties. Check Transactions Occupy Jury's Attention in Kiting DES MOINES up—Check transactions through a State Center bank occupied the attention of the jury Wednesday in the fraud trial of two Iowa livestock dealers in an alleged 37 -million-doUar check kiting scheme. Mrs. Carol Hunzelman, assistant cashier at the Central State Bank at State Ceitter, was, the second witness for'the government at the trial before Federal Judge Henry N Graven. She took' the stand before adjournment of court late Tuesday. " v The first witness,' Ejpjer Rein* hard, 31, assistant cash^r at the. State Bank at Gladbrobk, testified that banks frequently cash checks against uncollected fujids. Reinhard 'testified under cross- examination by Roy Pell of Marshalltown, a defense attorney in the trial of.JSldori Yiers, 44. of Marshalltown, and Merle Mers? man, 42, of Colo. "It \fi a common practice among hank* such as ours to allow a cus- tj^ w w«. ta »w ,#fld rejpect and have done business with, to draw on uncollected funds," Reinhard said. "A farmer who has cattle en route'to a packer and who hasn't receiyed his check, for instance." The witness said, "I knew Mr. Viers and had the highest respect for him", and for this reason cashed checks for him "against uncollected funds." Viers and Mersrpan are charged with mail fraud in a 12 -count indictment. Reinhard completed his testimony after Identifying checks, .deposit slips and other bank records used by Viers during a two- year -period ending last January. .The government charges that the two men, wrote checks to each other without having proper balances to cover ; them and that they u(je4 theMelay, in mail service "as an essential part ota scheme to defraud." Mrs.' Hunzelman identified! various checks, deposits and bank recqrds of Mersman and testified Mersman deposited between 130,000 and |» ( ow daily last January- his own initiative, with violators of federal court injunction orders subject to contempt punishment without jury trial. Half a dozen or more proposals are pending to insert a jury trial provision. The adoption of any of them would be made less certain by the expected approval of the Anderson-Aiken amendment, elay Showdown Leaders of the coalition of Republicans and Democrats supporting the measure indicated they! will delay any showdown on this issue while they work on other sections of the bill. The conviction in Knoxville, Tenn., of John Kasper and six other defendants in the Clinton j to have some bearing on the jury j ] trial issue when'it is reached. Sen. Russell (D-Ga), captain of the civil rights bill foes, said that action demonstrated the fallacy of arguments that federal enforcement without jury trials is "needed because Southern juries won't convict. Sen. Douglas (D-Ill), quarterback of Northern Democrats who favor the bill, told reporters he can't see why the Clinton verdict would affect the Senate vote. For one thing, he said, "Tennessee is one of the more advanced of Southern States." For another, he said, "Kasper was a Northerner, and Southerners don't like a Northerner to come down and stir up trouble." He said results of other Southern trials must be considered. However, Aiken, who opposes a jury trial provision, said the Clinton verdict "strengthens the case" of supporters of such an amendment. Sen. Carroll (D-Colo), who opposes the amendment, and Sen. Jackson (D-Wash), who supports it, agreed. Sen. Hickenlooper fR-Iowa) said the verdict means "it can no longer be said the juries in the south refuse to convict when they believe the evidence is sufficient." Sen. O'Mahoney (D-Wyo). arguing for the Anderson-Aiken amendment, said in a prepared speech that Atty. Gen. Brownell sought to sell the bill originally as a voting rights bill. "It was so accepted by the President of the United States," O'Mahoney said. "It was so accepted by members of Congress, by editors and by a substantial segment of the public. "It has now been discovered by the press, and admitted by its opponents, to be a masked attempt to give the government through the attorney general the right to punish by judicial order, rather than by criminal prosecution, citizens charged with crimes of force and. violence prohibited by both state and federal law." "This is a bill," the Wyoming senator said, "which would alter this government from a government of, for and by the people to a government by temporary occu^ pants of the seats of power," IN ROCHESTER HOSPITAL V. L. Throckmorton of CarroU is | a patient in room 1-110 St. Mary's Hospital, Rochester, Minn. Mrs. Throckmorton is with him.
