No Bonus for Koreon Vets Before 1958 DES MOINES UrV-From 80 to 900 letters a day are coming in from Iowa veterans of the Korean War asking about prospects for receiving a bonus, the Iowa World War n Bonus Division said Monday. "There is little hope for any payment in 1957," Ray J. Kauffman, division administrator, said he is telling the writers "At best the payments cannot be expected before some time in 1958." Kauffman said most of the letters are coming from Iowans in the armed forces in California, and former lowans who served in the Korean War but now are liv ing as civilians in California. After a steady flow of similar letters, the volume spurted to the present proportions after the question of the constitutionality of the bonus act was appealed to the Iowa Supreme Court recently. Kauffman said he is replying to the ietters by saying also that the case probably will be submitted to the court in September, and a ruling cannot be expected before the middle of October at the earliest. If the court upholds the act, there still are two other hurdles Bonds must be sold and adminis trative arrangements made. The 1955 Legislature and the voters in 1956 approved a 26 million dollar bonus for about 90,000 veterans. «« l ll^U'iJH,' me Book Sheds New Light on Roaring 20s Times Herald, Carroll, Iowa Tuesday, July 30, 1957 MALAYAN RULER? . . .

By JACK BELL WASHINGTON (*)-A half dozen undecided senators were reported today to hold the fate of the proposed jury trial amendment to the administration's civil rights bill. An intense struggle behind the scenes to enlist this small, undecided bloc was paralleled by effort* of the amendment's opponents and its supporters to marshal their full strength when a showdown vote comes — possibly not for several days. Win Praise As an indication of the uncertainty about the outcome, a coalition of the civil rights bill's backers won a promise from Sen.

Sen. Lyndon B. Johnson of Texas, the Democratic leader, said he hopes to get the Senate to lay aside the civil rights bill temporarily to work on other unfinished business. Senators O'Mahoney (D-Wyo), Kefauver (D-Tenn) and Church *D-ldaho) have proposed a civil rights bill amendment which would provide for jury trials in criminal contempt cases growing out of alleged interference with voting rights. It is broad enough to guarantee such trials for defendants in any type of case in which a court intends to punish a defendant who On the other hand, supporters j originally violated^ its order even of the amendment hoped that Sen.
