Knowland (R-Calif) said Monday supporters of the administration's civil rights bill are gaining strength in their efforts to ward off a jury trial amendment. Knowland, the Senate Republican leader, said some additional Democrats and Republicans lined up over the weekend in opposition to any such amendment. Predicting defeat of the amendment, he told newsmen the coali- 42 Dead, 20 Missing in Mexico Earthquake By CHARLES H. Guptill MEXICO CITY W — Soldiers blocked off many of this capital's major streets Monday as demolition squads began tearing down buildings dangerously damaged by earthquake.

Who will represent time. I Iowa in the Miss America contest Ready for Filibuster Knowland 'disputed contentions that if the jury trial provision is defeated it will be more difficult to get final Senate action on the House-passed bill. He said that if there is to be a Southern filibuster against passage of the bill with strong enforcement provisions to protect voting rights, he is ready to meet it. On the other side. Sen. Jackson (D-Wash) came out for a jury trial amendment although he voted against Southern opponents of the bill on other phases of the battle. Jackson announced his stand in a prepared Senate speech in which he said he was unwilling to "endanger one civil right to guard another." Sen. Javits (R-NY), also in a prepared speech, made a "retreat no more" appeal for' a firm stand against the jury trial amendment. "The attempt to put a white jury, from whose acquittal there is no appeal. . . . between the law and the means of carrying it out is 'interposition' and will largely defeat whatever rights may be left in this bill," Javits said. One of the arguments advanced for a jury trial amendment is that it would facilitate passage of the bill—that Southern foes of the' bill might decide against waging any prolonged fight against it. Compromise But Knowland said that if the amendment is written into the bill, there would have to be a compromise with the House over the final language. "We probably would encounter a filibuster then, on the conference report," he said. "If there is a filibuster, I am in favor of having it now and fighting it out, rather than postponing it, even if it takes until September to get this measure passed." Knowland said he thinks the House might accept the present version of- the bill. The Senate al ready has struck out a section un der which federal enforcement of civil rights in general would have been authorized. Knowland said he does not an ticipate any further statement by President Eisenhower on the terms of the bill. at Atlantic City, N.J., Is ttte daughter of Mr. and Mrs. H. J. Fleck. The new beauty queen entered the contest as Miss Southeast Iowa. She was chosen from 20 other contestants. Her selection by the panel of five judges was' read by Gov. Herschel Loveless.

Good Impression Although she failed to place in the Miss Iowa pageant, Chamber of Commerce representatives said that she "was well received, made a very favorable impression on the crowd, and did a good job of selling Carroll."

At least 50 buildings were toppled in the capital. In bright sunshine, volunteers began the clearing of tons of rubble. Soldiers directed a snarl of traffic caused by the closing of streets and the blocking of many buildings to owners and tenants until engineers can check the safety of walls. The capital, with its population of four million, was hardest hit. The State of Guerrero, with famed Acapulco and its capital of Chilpancingo, was next. Thirty-two bodies were dug out of ruins in the capital, 6 in Chili- ancingo, 2 in Acapulco, 1 in Atot- las, and I in Humanxtillan.

Humphrey in Cabinet WASHINGTON Iff) - Robert B. Anderson took on the post of secretary of the Treasury Monday, assured by President Eisenhower that "you'll find here a warm welcome." Eisenhower's remark after the oath-taking ceremony in the Cabinet Room of the White House seemed more a reference to the difficulties of managing the nation's finances in current times than a simple greeting. To retiring Secretary George M. Humphrey, Eisenhower said: "George, now you're just an ex- bureaucrat." Eisenhower held a Bible, on which Anderson placed his hand, as Judge Warren Burger of the U. S. Court of Appeals administered the oath to the new Cabinet officer. Anderson, 47, has been meeting with Treasury officials and preparing for the Cabinet post most of the time since Humphrey an nounced May 29 his resignation, effective when his successor was ready to take over. Humphrey, often called the "strong man" of the Eisenhower Cabinet, is understood to have recommended Anderson as his successor. Humphrey, 67, is expected to become board chairman of the National Steel Corp. He has said the government should not be run by "doddering old men" because "there's no future for the Republican Party in that."
