Humphrey ID-Minn) Saturday denounced jury trial proposals, a crucial issue in the battle over the civil rights bill, as "a deliberate, premeditated, cleverly concealed smokescreen." A leader of Northern Democratic senators working with administration forces to prevent further weakening of the House-passed bill, Humphrey said the latest jury trial amendment just added to the "confusion." The amendment, offered by Sens. O'Mahoney <D-Wyo), Kefauver <D-Tenn), and Church (D- Idaho.) would write a new federal law governing contempt of court proceedings in all kinds of cases —civil rights, labor or anything else. Under it, defendants in criminal contempt proceedings, to punish a person for willful disobedience of a court order, would be entitled to trial by jury. Civil contempt cases, designed to secure compliance with an injunction or other court order but not to punish, would be handled by a judge without a jury. Sen.

One report was that Lt. Gov. William H. Nicholas of Mason City, and former state Sen. Leo Elthon of Fertile, were strong possibilities for the Republican nomination for governor. Democratic Gov. Herschel Loveless, who is expected to seek a second term, was here, but the Republicans, who control the Legislature and most of the state offices did most of the talking. Others Mentioned About 550 legislators, state offi-j same amounts for the Board of Regents, Board of Control and Conservation Commission which the lawmakers approved in the regular session last winter. Democratic Gov. Herschel Loveless vetoed the measures, along with a tax program .approved by the Republican-controlled Legislature. 19th 'Governor's Day*' The legislators were interviewed while attending Clear Lake's 19th annual Governor's Days. The survey covered about 30 yer cent of the legislators. The question of a special legislative session has been widely discussed ever since the governor vetoed the series of bills after the Legislature had adjourned. The building fund measures called for a total expenditure in the next two years of about 16 million dollars for improvements. When the governor killed the tax program he permitted the sales tax to drop back to two per cent. The discussion as to a special session has centered primarily on the urgent need expressed by the Board of Regents and state educational institution leaders for more money to build more buildings to handle increased enrollments at the schools. The interviews were with 45 leg- The board of directors of the Carroll County Swine Producers Association met at the Farm Bu reau building Friday night to complete, plans for the Carroll Market Hog Show to be held at the West Sale Barn September 4.

However, For a Decision on Whether to Carry on, Quit Believes It's Time to Review Progress, Problems Remaining WASHINGTON MPi — President Eisenhower Saturday ordered Secretary of State Dulles to fly Sundays to the London disarmament talks. Officials said Dulles will decide whether to continue or break off the talks. A White House announcement said Eisenhower considered the problems at London "of such importance as to require the secretary's personal review and judg ment." Dulles will conler, officials said, with Harold E. Stassen, who continues as head of the American disarmament delegation. Possibly, they added, Dulles may talk to Soviet delegate Valerian Zorin. And he certainly will meet with the tnree other Western delegations from Britain, France and Canada. Asked why the long-drawn talks had suddenly required Dulles' personal attention, officials replied that the time was opportune to re view progress achieved and the problems remaining.

Forster's wife said the telephone rang at their home about 3 p.m. Friday and a man's voice said,: "Your husband will be dead by 10 o'clock tonight (Friday)." Mrs. Forster infmediately called Police Chief Howard R. Eide and around-the-clock protection was es tablished for the city manager. At the time Mrs. Forster received the call her husband was at his City Hall office. Forster said he did not know why any one would threaten his life and that the only thing he could think of was that "we've been bearing down on the gam bling rackets." Forster took the incident lightly and insisted on going out with his wife Friday evening for din ner to cetebrate his birthday. They were accompanied by De tective Chief Robert E. O'Brien. "I'm not laughing this off com pletely. but I'm not going to get all excited about it," the city manager said. He was at City Hall as usual Saturday. Policemen ' remained near Forster' home throughout night, Dulles would then make a rec ommendation to Eisenhower, whol would make the ultimate decision. At a July 16 news conference, Dulles rejected any idea of recessing the talks "merely as a way of I suspending work." However, he said, he would accept a recess if lhe Soviets or some other delegation wanted time to go back home and consider some-of the proposals which appeared to have merit. Eisenhower next day echoed Dulles' words, telling a news conference: "We simply must not get discouraged in the work and in the process."

Graven held a session of court Saturday to proceed with the trial of two Iowa livestock dealers charged with what the government claims was a multi-million dollar check-kiting scheme. The defendants are Eldon Viers, 44, of Marshalltown and Merle Mersman, 42, of Colo. The defense opened its case Friday and Viers testified that he had no intention to "defraud" the State Bank at Gladbrook when he exchanged checks with Mersman. On direct examination he told about his dealings over a period in 1955 and 1956 on the purchase and sale of more than 10.000 head of livestock 1 and said that he had to wait from four to nine days to get his money from packing plants. Under cross examination he sa*id he and Mersman met "practically everyday" to exchange checks. Viers banked at the Gladbrook bank and Mersman at the Central State Bank at State Center. Viers said meetings were held at his home and usually his wife was present and kept a record of exchanged checks. Viers had testified on direct ex amlnation that after he was. In formed by the Gladbrook bank last Jan. 25 that he was "in trou ble" he had offered to assign all of his property and life insurance to make up any loss. old Kitty Butler's month of silence j northeast of here ended Saturday.

Anti-Red Chief Shot Down as Wife Watches Leaving Reception; Slayer Takes Own Life; Stat* of Siege Declared By RICHARD G. MASSOCK GUATEMALA im — President Carlos Castillo Armas was assassinated Friday night by a member of his palace guard. The anti-Communist leader, who three years ago drove out the nearest thing to a Communist gov-. ernment the American continent has yet seen, was mowed down by four rifle bullets His . attractive wife witnessed the shooting. The assassin, Romero Vasquez Sanchez, then turned the rifle on himself, according to witnesses, and took his own life. (In Wash i n g t o n. Embassy Charge d'Affaires Julio Asensio- Wunderlich, said he had talked with Guatemala city. "We are definitely sure that the assassin was a member of the Communist Party," he said.) The assassination took place after a reception which Casteillo Armas gave for businessmen as the; climax; to a weeklong study of Guatemala's economic problems. On Way To Dine The president and his wife were on their way to the palace dining room. As they approached, 'the assassin presented arms, lowered his rifle and fired four times. The President toppled, dead. Luis Arturo Gonzalez, president of Congress, appeared to be the immediate successor to 43-year- old Castillo Armas, the army colonel who* had. ousted the Red- supported regime of Jacobo Arbenz Guzman in 1954. Gonzalez is "first designate," a post equivalent to vice president. , But there also was talk that a junta might tak? over. The cabinet, during an all night meeting in the presidential palaqe, imposed a state of siege, or modified martial law, on the whole country. But as dawn came .there was no sign of disorder anywhere. Most Guatemalans went to bed Friday night without knowing their President had been killed. Calm prevailed through the night. The assassination came as a shock to Guatemalans, The country had been quiet, in recent months after a period marked with some violence. Grief was mirrored in the faces of those who left the palace. Weeping women stood at the doorway. Mario Sandoval Alarcon, the President's private secretary and; head of his dominant National 1 Democratic Movement political party, left the palace at' 11:30 p.m. with a submachinegun under his arm. But his face was con-j. torted and he looked as though he might burst into tears. Soldiers were posted around the palace and its park grounds. Government officials who rushed to the palace told reporters they did not know what had happened. The scrappy Guatemalan leader, an army colonel, forced out of office a government in which Communists wielded their greatest influence in the history of Central America. He became the country's President and in 1955 paid a state visit to Washington. Several Plots" There have been several plots, reported against his regime allegedly masterminded by Guatema-; lans living abroad. Arbenz him-' self is in exile in Europe.
