Hoffa In as Strong Man In Union Race CHICAGO UV-Jimmy Hoffa has emerged as the apparent strong man in the race to succeed Dave Beck as president of the powerful Teamsters Union. Hoffa's growing strength in the l>i million member union was sharply focused yesterday when some 800 cheering, shouting Teamster leaders voted unanimously to endorse the Detroiter's candidacy for the $50,000 a year post. Beck Stepping Down The caucus was called by Hoffa's supporters especially to boom the 44-year-old Hoffa for Beck's job. Beck is stepping down amidst charges by a Senate Rackets Committee that misappropriated large sums of money from the union, Hoffa himself was acquitted by a jury July 19 of bribery and conspiracy charges brought by the same committee which said he tried to plant a spy on the committee staff. Harold J. Gibbons. St. Louis Teamster chief, offered the resolution backing Hoffa. "There's nothing 1 can do but carry on your wishes," Hoffa said later. Enthusiasm for Hoffa led another announced candidate for the five - year post to virtually withdraw from the contest. John T. (Sandy) O'Brien, who was running hard for the nomination, emerged from a conference with Hoffa and asserted: "Jim has 75 per cent of the vote. 1 will go back and tell my friends tho situation." OBrien Withdraw! O'Brien .said that if Hoffa had as much strength as the meeting demonstrated "I have nothing else to do" but withdraw. O'Brien, of Chicago, is a fourth vice president. Formal nomination of presidential candidates comes Sept. 30 at the Teamster convention in Miami. At a later news conference after the meeting, Hoffa said he did not intend to take the Fifth Amendment when he makes a scheduled appearance before the Senate Rackets Committee. Hoffa read a 2,500 word campaign policy statement to the meeting. It was adopted without dissent. The nine - point platform endorsed the AFL - CIO ethical practice code with the exception of the Fifth Amendment provision, v/hich Hoffa opposes. PIONEER MUSEUM Bonebright Museum housed in two log cabins dating back 107 years, contains numerous pioneer and Indian relics. Museum stands in Wilson Brewer Memorial Park at south edge of Webster City. One of the cabins, built by Wilson Brewer, a pioneer, in 1850, is near its original site on land granted to.

Pioneer, Indian Relics Displayed in 2 Log Cabins at Webster City IOWA BECKONS No. 22— j of the land occupied by the Brewer WEBSTER CITY wi - You can family after it came to this vicini- find a glimpse of the state's pioneer past in this north central Iowa city which has just completed its centennial celebration. The Bonebright Museum, housed in two log cabins dating back 107 years, is located in Wilson Brewer Memorial Park at the south edge of the city: One of the cabins was the home built in 1850 by Wilson Brewer, who founded the town of Newcastle, a pioneer village which was the forerunner of the present Webster City. Mementos on Display Brewer's grandchildren, the late Frank Bonebright and the late Mrs. Harriet Carmichael, started out nearly 30 years ago to collect pioneer items and Indian relics for the museum. These mementos' of the past now are on display. The museum stands on a portion ty by ox cart from Pennsylvania. The Brewer cabin, stands near its original site. Another cabin, built in 1854 by Jackson Groves, Iowa. Here can also be seen some of the famed wooden Indians that used to stand in front of cigar stores. Water Mill Turbine Standing as a monumelit to the was moved in from a farm south j pioneer milling industry in Iowa of here and a third log cabin, built in 1885 near Homer by Charlie Jamieson, also has been incorporated into the museum facilities. On display are spinning wheels, ancient cooking implements, tools, farm implements, musical oddities and ox yokes. There are more than 100 types of old guns and even the sheepskin land grant deed given to Brewer on Sept. 15, 1854 by President Franklin Pierce. Bonebright, an avid collector of Indian items, located arrows, spears and knives from burial sites all over this section of the state. The collection of Indian knives is said to be the finest in is an old water mill turbine, poised on stone pillars in the front yard. The mill wheel once operated at a mill on the Boone River. The park is the burial site of 10 members of the Brewer family. Also in the park is a time capsule, buried June 11 this year as a highlight of the centennial celebration. In the vault are 101 different items, telling of the city's history, it's industries and its organizations. The time capsule, marked by a huge boulder bearing a special plaque, will be opened in 2057, giving residents of the community at that time another glimpse into the past. Find Couple Shot at Bluffs Only 11 Lines in McCarthy Will Theory Lays Mind Disorders To Toxic Faults LEXINGTON, Ky. Ui - Scientists investigating "experimental insanity" are on the verge of finding the basic reason for mental disorder, an expert in narcotics addiction asserts. Dr.' Harris Isbell, director of the Addiction Research Center at the U.S. Public Health Service hospital here, said research with new and old drugs has led to the rebirth of the "toxic" theory of psychiatry. The research suggests there is a material in the blood of schizophrenics that will Induce a psychotic state in normal persons, Dr. Isbell told a civil club Friday. If this is true, he added, scientists are near discovery of the basic reason for mental disorder. Even if the discovery is not made, he said, much will have been learned because the drugs permit safe study of an induced psychotic state, he said, The theory holds that psychoses such as schizophrenia are a result of chemical disorder or imbalance in the body, possible an inherited condition.

Mr. I«AWV« Nosser Bars Foreigners at Navy Review By WILTON WYNN ALEXANDRIA ffi — Behind a tight curtain of secrecy, President Nasser today reviewed units of his navy off the coast of Alexandria. Local press reports said Nasser would raise the Egyptian flag on three submarines recently purchased from Russia. Foreign reporters and photographers were barred from the naval review. So were most diplomats. Six carefully chosen Egyptian newsmen and photographers accompanied the official party but they were warned against passing on unauthorized information or pictures' to the foreign press. Big Celebmtion Today's naval display wound up a week of festivities celebrating the fifth anniversary of the Egyptian revolution and the first anniversary of the nationalization of the Suez Canal Co. In a speech last night in Alexandria, Nasser praised the United States' stand during last fall's Suez Canal invasion but said he rejected the Eisenhower Middle East doctrine because it "had strings" attached. "We cannot forget the United Slates stand against aggression," Nasser told a mass rally celebrating the fifth anniversary of the ouster and exile of King Farouk. Speaking just a year after his dramatic announcement that Egypt was nationalizing the Suez Canal Co., Nasser charged the British - French invasion of the canal was not designed to protect the disputed waterway ,as claimed but was aimed at bringing Egypt to its knees. He accused France of seizing a chance to strike at Egypt and Britain of maneuvering to reoccupy the canal. Of the Israeli attack, he said "we hoped to give Israel a lesson and avenge the battle of 1948 (the Arab-Israeli war) but it was not to be." In a two-hour speech Nasser declared that if Egypt had accepted the offer of aid under* the Eisenhower doctrine—aimed at stopping communism in the Middle East—it would have meant Egypt following in the U. S. path. Had 'Strings' Brucker Opposes Curbs on Foreign trial of GIs WASHINGTON MP>—Secretary of the Army: Brucker says he is opposed, to any legislative curbs on foreign trial of U.S. servicemen in view of what he called the sensitive international situation. Passage of any law on the subject, Brucker added Friday, "would send up a flag immediately to any foreign nation." Brucker's statements were made before the House Armed Services Committee which is considering proposals to place restrictions on the trial of U.S. servicemen by foreign ^govern- menls. Provisions for handling GI offenses committed overseas are contained in the various "status of forces" agreements between the United States and other countries. Chairman Vinson (D-Ga) suggested a toned down bill which would give the armed services secretaries authority to determine whether a serviceman's offense overseas was committed in the performance of duty. The furor over trials abroad flared as a result of the case of William S. Girard, an Army specialist third class, who was accused by # Japanese authorities of fatally wounding a Japanese woman on a firing range. The U.S. Supreme Court earlier this month upheld the administration in its decision to turn Girard over to the Japanese for trial. Brucker said the Girard case "points up the fact that there are very few cases which we Cannot handle satisfactorily" under the present system. 8 Timet Herald, Carroll, low* Saturday, July 27, 1957 SAY IT ISN'T SO . . .

He's.done a lot of squeezing himself in nearly 200 films of the "I Search for Adventure" series, which goes into its fourth year next week. But, he says, the surface has barely been tapped. To emphasize, he came up—with practically no prodding at all — with a list of what he considers . the world's 10 greatest unfilmed adventures. * None Seeen By Public Some of these have been, filmed with still cameras and some by governmental organizations, but there have been no motion pictures of them seen by thepublic as far as Douglas knows. 1. Life on Pitcalrn Island among the descendants of the men who staged the mutiny on the Bounty. 2. Ascent "Ho the rim of Mt. Izalco in El Salvador. This volcano has been erupting every 15 minutes for 175 years. ,, 3. A North Polc-to-South pole airplane flight. 4. Underwater exploration of the Sea of Galilee and the Dead Sea. 5. Exploration of the vast French caves in the south of France. 6. Exploration of the top of Devil's Mountain in Venezuela which was the locale of Arthur Conan Doyle's book, "Lost World." 7. Afoyage through the Northwest Passage. 8. Climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro in Africa. 9. Exploring the Afghanistan Jungle, the meanest and least- known jungle in the world. 10. Life with a Gypsy caravan in Spain or France. "I'd just about give 'my right leg to get any three on that list," says Douglas. But, he's not about to finance any expeditions to get them.

Sunday the nation's voters will elect a constituent assembly to take up the job of rewriting the constitution of 1853. The provisional government of President Pedro Aramburu — which threw out the Peron-written constitution of 1949 —says the assembly's main task will be to limit the executive's powers and specifically to prevent the president from running for reelection, That would do away with a provision that ousted President Juan Peron put in so he could succeed himself. Aramburu has called for the constiuent assembly to meet Sept. 1 and tor general elections to be held next February to choose a constitutional government. Peron Plea Peron, now living in exile in Venezuela, has called for, his followers to "vote in blank" to demonstrate the power he claims he still wields in Argentina. More than nine million men and women are elgible to cast ballots. Aside from the diehard supporters of Peron, the pro-Aramburu forces are opposed chiefly by backers of radical party leader Arturo' FrondUi. Frondizi wound up his fiery campaign with an attack on th# provisional government and the Peronists. He charged tha^ Peron- ist Orders to cast blank ballots were falsified and urged supporters of the deposed dictator to vote for his party. Political Posters The streets of Buenos Aires were strewn with thousands of political leaflets and posters of a scofe of parties—a far cry from the virtual monopoly of the "Vive Peron" slogans posted, during the fallen president's time. Thousands of Peron supporters turned out yesterday, however, on the fifjh anniversary of the death parades in Tucuman in the far north and in La Plata. i POWER of 6 7 HOWARD BRODIE HOWARD BRODIE, creator «f THE POWER OF FAITH, is wall known to millions for his on -th «.»pot tkotchot during World War II and tho Korean conflict.
