Go In Until They Get Board Approval DEER LODGE, Mont. (^-Rebellious convicls still held control of the Montana Prison Tuesday, although their nine-hour riot, during which eight guards were seized as hostages, ended shortly before midnight. None of the guards was Injured. Guards manned the prison towers but none ventured inside the walls. Guard leaders said they would not go back inside until getting approval from the Montana Board of Prison Commissioners. The board was scheduled to meet at Helena, 60 miles from Deer Lodge Wednesday morning. The riot ended Tuesday night when Atty. Gen. Forrest H. Anderson told the convict leaders he would investigate conditions at the 88-year-old prison. He also agreed to consider 20 demands made by the rioters. Free to Enter Kitchen The convicts were free to leave their unlocked cells Wednesday morning and go to the kitchen. "We have not had any word out here whether they have or have not eaten", but we're sure they have today," a prison staff member said. Each of the prison's six towers j was manned by a prison guard, and two state highway patrolmen. The towers can be reached by stairs from outside the walls. No guards or state officials have gone into the penitentiary since release of the last of the hostages Tuesday night. Anderson took command of the situation Tuesday night apparently because he was the highest- ranking state official left at the scene. The riot's end came only a few hours before some 200 Montana National Guardsmen and peace officers were poised to invade Cell Block 8, where the convicts held the guards hostage. Makes Pledge Eight guards were swept up by shouting convicts when the riot broke out in the exercise yard at 3:30 p.m. Two were released shortly afterward, and a third went free minutes before the riot ended when Anderson made his pledge to the prisoner by loudspeaker. The prisoners freed the five remaining guards, who said they had not been mistreated and had been locked in separate cells. Then the convicts went into their eells voluntarily and the big mass of men in the exercise yard followed suit. In ail, about 380 prisoners—the entire inside-the-wall population- took part in the rioting.

Fear Corn Scarcity to Develop Before Harvest By OVID A. MARTIN j The government may not sell its WASHINGTON lift—A scarcity of i corn for less than the price sup- corn for livestock feeding despite port rate plus five per cent. This record large surpluses of the grain Works out at a national average may develop before this year's of about $1.58 a bushel or about crop is harvested in the fall. j 31 cents above current market Not Enough 'Free' Corn j prices. The Weather This possibility was foreseen by the Agriculture Department Wednesday in a new report on the feed situation. It said supplies of free corn may not be sufficient to meet livestock feed and market needs before new crop corn becomes available in October and later months. By free corn, the department refers to stocks that are not stored under government price support programs. It may be owned by farmers, millers and others. Corn stored under support programs falls into two classes—that owned outright by the government and that stored by growers under government price support loans. Hot, Humid Next 5 Days Can Use Stored Corn Corn stored under loans may be used by farmers simply by paying off the support loans and interest charges. Some of last year's corn was stored under loans at $1.25 a bushel. This was grain that was grown on farms which did not cooperate with the corn control program. Corn grown on cooperating farms was eligible for loans at $1.50. The department said that if shortages in free supplies do develop, the deficit undoubtedly would be filled by corn withdrawn from the $1.25 loans. All that would be needed to encourage freeing of this grain would be for market prices to rise *a around $1.30 a bushel, officials said. The feed report predicted that reserve and surplus supplies of old 'crop corn would total about 1,450,000,000 Bushels on Oct. 1, or 385 million more than a year earlier. This would be the largest carryover supply on record. Virtually all of it will be owned by WASHINGTON MB - President Eisenhower said Wednesday he will submit a new school aid bill to the next session of Congress^—a bill, he said, that won't put an albatross around the neck ot the American taxpayer. At a news conference, Eisenhower also firmly opposed adding any jury trial amendment to* the civil rights bill now before the Senate and voiced hope the measure will be passed soon in its present form. Eisenhower said too he is very hopeful that Congress will act soon to provide an adequate foreign aid bill. He said it was news to him that some Senate Democrats have been complaining they could not get White House help in getting the mutual security legislation through. Denies Implication Eisenhower also denied with considerable heat that the $30,000 contributed by Maxwell Gluck to the Republican Party had anything to do with his nomination of Gluck to be ambassador to Ceylon. Eisenhower's answers as he faced more than 200 newsmen ranged from world problems to his personal finances. Referring to a recent published report (in a newspaper series by Fletcher Knebel) that Eisenhower's personal worth is in the neighborhood of a million dollars, the President provoked a roar of laughter by saying that if that writer offers him a million to sell out he's going to make a sale. Eisenhower added that everything he owns is in the hands of trustees so he does not even know what his investments and similar properties are and thus could not possibly use his position for personal advantage. On the school aid matter, Eisenhower defended his stand that the compromise IVi-billion-dollar bill which the House killed last Eisenhower See Page 7 Woman Fears ! Worst if Finance Firm Wins Suit DES MOINES l*)—A Des Moines housewife, worried about a $117 suit filed against her by a finance company for failure to meet payments on a promissory note, foresees dire consequences if the court rules in favor of the firm. | In a letter addressed to "the| clerk ot District Court and a' judge," here's what she said would happen: "My husband will lose his job, then we will lose our furniture, our car and our house. "It will disillusion our creditors here, my mother and my mother- in-law will worry themselves to death, my husband will get sick, our children will starve and I'll go crazy. "Then we will have to leave the country but we won't have anything to leave on, so the State of Iqwa will have to take care of us. "Our life will be ruined and the finance company won't give us a second thought." Commented .ludge Dring D. Needham: "there's nothing like carrying things ou< to their logical conclusion." Said Mike Doyle, clerk of District Court, "I can't remember anyone ever being quite so dramatic over a $117 petition."

MILTON KELLY WASHINGTON UP) — The chief Senate rackets prober pictured Teamster boss James R. Hoffa today as an associate of racketeers in a ; bid for "power that enriched gangsters and victimized j union members. Chairman McClellan (D-Ark) outlined in a prepared statement the scope of hearings. his special Senate committee opens today into improper labor-management practices in the New York City area. Hoffa is Midsvesl vice president of the Teamsters Union and the likely successor tc Dave Beck as the union's international president. Call Top Officials Congress detailing advances it said were made "in all major programs" for both military and peaceful uses of atomic energy t the AEC included this paragraph: "The first application for a license to export radioactive isotopes to Soviet Russia was received and approved. It covered a small amount of (radioactive) carbon-14 which will be used for cancer research at the Bio-Chemical Institute of the Academy of Science, Moscow." From American Firm A commission spokesman told a reporter the license to export the material to the Russians had been obtained from the AEC by the Chemesco Corp. of New York City, one of the American firms that processes isotopes originally obtained from the AEC. He added in answer to a ques tion that he did not know whether the Russians' purchase of the iso topes in this country was any indication that they couldn't produce it themselves. "It's done routinely in this coun try," he said. "Carbon-14 is one of our most popular reactor-produced isotopes.

Two winners will be selected at the annual Soil Conservation Awards Dinner to be held at the Carroll Country Club . at 7 p.m. Thursday. New entrants are Janet Haubrich, daughter of Mr, and Mrs. Ed Haubrich of Route 3, Carroll; Marlita Kemper, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William Kemper, Tera- pletonj and Patricia H ob b s, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Leonie Hobbs, GUdden.

Collisons Sell Home, Move to Another Dr. and Mrs. Richard W. Colli soil and family moved Tuesday from 1311 North Main Street into their home at 1728 North Main. They sold their residence at 1311 North Main to Mr and Mrs. H.F Pfiester, who have rented * the property to W. V, Orr. Mr. and Mrs. Orr and family are moving from 618 West 15th Street. Hoffa would be among the more than 100 witnesses to be called, but the union said several of its top officials have been summoned. Hoffa was acquitted recently by a federal court jury of charges that he bribed a lawyer to spy on the Rackets Committee's investigations. Hoffa still faces trial on federal wiretapping charges involving his Detroit office. McClellan said the evidence assembled by the committee will show that Hoffa used gangsters, and that gangsters used Communists, in a bid for power in which "Hoffa would have a stranglehold over the Port of New York. The next step would be the entire Eastern Seaboard and the St. Lawrence Seaway." "The economic factors are tremendous,"'McClellan said. "Such power placed in the hands of persons affiliated with racketeers is a danger to the welfare of the nation." 'Hoods' on Payrolls He said the hearings will show how "hoodlums and their henchmen" were placed on union payrolls in deals which he said "provided an income for the mob that worked for John (Johnny Dio) McClellan See Page 7 Shirt Douglas Fills School Board Post (Time* Herald New« Hervlee) RALSTON-The Glidden-Ralston school board has appointed Shirl Douglas of Ralston to fill the vacancy on the board caused by the resignation of Mrs. H.

Advances were made in all major programs." While the sections of the report dealing with weapons stressed armaments for "defense," the AEC made it clear it also is continuing to stockpile weapons that could be used in offense. Variety of Weapons "The commission continued production of a variety of nuclear weapons, including weapons for defense, in accordance with presidential directive," the report said, adding at another point: "During the period of this report emphasis continued on research and development activities designed to improve and increase the United States arsenal of nuclear weapons. "Development programs continued on weapons employing new design principles which can be used more effectively for defensive purposes." Presumably the "new design principles"—have to do with ways and means of (1) building H- bombs, as well as A-bombs, in smaller packages for deliverabili- ty by medium-sized bombers; (2) fabricating relatively small but Isotopes See Page 7 Reserve Calf Exhibited By Maxine Feld List Winners in 4-H, FFA Show at 4-County Fair in Coon Rapids A girl from Audubon County won grand championship of cattle entries in the 4-H and FFA livestock show at the Four-County Fair in Coon Rapids Tuesday.
