Kohler, Ike Friend, Wins GOP Nomination to Finish McCarthy Term Ex*Governor Edges Davis In Light Vote By ARTHUR BYSTROM MILWAUKEE tfl — Wisconsin Republicans nominated a firm friend of President Eisenhower's "Modern Republicanism" Tuesday for the Senate seat previously held by Ike-baiting Joseph R. McCarthy, who died May 2. Walter J. Kohler Jr., 53-year- old three-time governor of the state, edged out former Rep. Glenn R. Davis in a finish decided by the last vote counting in metropolitan Milwaukee precincts. Alone in Field Kohler was alone in the seven- man GOP field in his Ml support of the President. Davis is a 41- year-old veteran of five terms in the House, where he supported some of Eisenhowers domestic program but—like most "regular" Wisconsin Republicans — opposed the administration on foreign aid and foreign policy in general. None of the fireworks attendant j on the career of Sen. McCarthy carried over into the campaign. Only State Sen. Gerald Lorge, who ran a poor sixth, called upon McCarthy's old supporters for help. Wins Demo Race Kohler will be opposed in the general election Aug. 27 by William Proxmire, whom he beat twice previously in gubernatorial elections. Proxmire won the Democratic nomination by defeating Rep. Clement Zablocki of Milwaukee. The August election is for the remainder of McCarthy's term, which expires in January 1959. The Republican vote in 3,352 of the state's 3,361 precincts: Kohler . L _. 109,127 Davis 100,271 Alvin O'Konski 66.747 Warren P. Knowlea 23,999 Henry P. Hughes 7,536 Lorge 7,340 John C. Schafer 2,233 The Democratic vote, , In the aame number of precincts: Proxmire 86,836 Zablocki 56,329 The total vote was slightly under 500,000—less than 25 per cent of the estimated 2,200,000 voters. The Republican candidates polled about 69 per cento fthe total, the Democrats 31 per cent. This was a somewhat higher percentage for the Republicans than in the 1956 senatorial primary when GOP candidates had about 65 per cent. Heads Company Kohler, president of the Vollrath Co., an enamelware firm at Sheboygan, is a member of the family that founded the Kohler Co. The Kohler Co. is involved in the longest strike in the United States—it started April 5, 1954— but the former governor has no connection with the company now. He was elected governor in 1950 in his first try for public office and was re-elected in 1952 and 1954, beating Proxmire in his last two campaigns. Alumni Groups Appeal For a Special Session INSTALL POST OFFICERS (Time* Herald Newt Service) MANNING — The installation team of Emil Ewoldt Post No. 22, American Legion, installed officers of the Coon Rapids post Monday evening, July 29. DBS MOINES (#i - Alumni groups of Iowa's three slate educational institutions, seeking funds to meet the expansion needs of the schools, looked to Gov. Herschel Loveless Wednesday with the hope that he will call the Legislature back into special session this year. Spokesmen for the three alumni associations presented to the governor late Tuesday a resolution saying that the institutions face an "extreme emergency" in respect to building needs. Added Expense "Every month's delay means added expense to the taxpayers as building costs continue to rise," the resolution said. The visit with the governor followed a meeting of alumni offi cials of the State University of Iowa, Iowa State College and Iowa State Teachers College. It was learned the governor told the alumni representatives that he hoped the question of a special session this fall would be resolved at a meeting he plans with Republican and Democratic legisla tors. Those who met with the gover nor in a 15-minute session were Robert Buckmaster, Waterloo, president of the SUI Alumni Assn.; Douglas Graves, Chicago, presi dent of the Iowa State College Assn. and Mrs. R. F. Nielsen, Cedar Falls, representing the 1STC Alumni Assn. Mrs. Nielsen said the governor told them he would ask the legislative leaders "to forget politics and try to resolve the problem" of building needs at the schools. Loveless himself declined comment except to say "the material in the resolution is very factual." Tells Condition Earlier in the day Loveless told newsmen he would call a special session if (1) Republicans will suggest a program for building appropriations and <2) if they will agree to keep the sales tax at two per cent. This fell on some dubious Republican ears. Sen. X. T. Prentis, chairman of the Senate Ways and Means Committee said he "won't make any such promise on the sales tax." Rep. Robert Carson (R-Independence) and Rep. Vern Lisle <R-Clarinda), both said they did not think the Legislature could be bound by advance/ commitments but Lisle said he felt certain the lawmakers would re-enact appropriations for the schools. The financial problem arose when Loveless vetoed nearly 11 million dollars of 1957 appropriations for buildings at the three schools at the same time he vetoed a bill to continue the sales tax at 2Vt per cent, thus putting it back to two per cent. Resolution The resolution the alumni officials gave Loveless said: "The alternative to an adequate building program is to deny the opportunities of higher education to students who are now in our public schools." It went on: "Time for catching up with the building program is rapidly running out. ... For the past several years, enrollments have been greater than the predicted levels. By 1961, expected enrollments will be 14 per cent greater than last year. By 1970, expected enrollments will increase 60 per cent. "This problem is more urgent because it takes three years after money is appropriated before a building can be used by students." The resolution said the institutions already are far behind with their building programs and urged that all interests join in providing sound plans for both immediate and long range needs. Buckmaster said the group told the governor the alumni give no consideration to political implications and are not concerned with how the money for buildings is provided "so long, as it is done promptly."

C. J. Burris of Maquoketa, Democratic member of the commission, said an outlet at Bettendorf would aid in liquor control. He said residents of that town find it more convenient to obtain liquor at Moline, III than Davenport.

'Dew Line' Is Completed GOP Rallies For Battle on A-Power Bill WASHINGTON (^Republicans rallied Wednesday for a battle on the House floor against a Democratic maneuver to compel the administration to start developing atomic-fueled electric power plants. A bill to authorize a 58-million dollar beginning on such development came out of the Senate- House Atomic Energy Committee Tuesday by a largely partisan vote. Chairman Durham (D-NC) said he hopes to get the bill before the House next week. Fellow Republicans said Rep. Cole (R-NY) was passing the word that "we're going to have a fight on the floor."

The jury of nine men and three women received the case at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday and returned its verdict about 5Vi hours later. The government charged . that during a 25-month period ending last January the two men exchanged checks totaling $13,524,000 without having funds sufficient to cover them. They were accused of pursuing this method of obtaining funds to finance their livestock buying operations. Viers, who operated through the State Bank of Gladbrook, denied there was any intent to defraud in the exchange of checks.

The transactions cover 31 cars, six trucks, and one station wagon. Twenty of the cars will go to the state highway patrolmen, at a cost of $1,558 each. Eleven other cars and the station wagon will be assigned to various departments. The cars will cost from $1,529 to $1,570 each, and the station wagon $1,714. The six trucks will be for the Conservation Commission. The prices range from $1,249 to $2,927. The state pays no federal or state taxes on such purchases. REV. BREWERS ON TRIP (Tlniea Herald New.

Farmer, 23, Drowns in Tank SWEETLAND CENTER iff) - A Parr, Texas Boss, Getsl 0 Years, Fine HOUSTON, Tex. WWJeorge B. Parr, 55, was sentenced 4 to 10 years in prison and fined $20,000 Tuesday on a federal conviction of using the mails to defraud a school district in Duval County, where he long has been a political power. Federal Judge Joe Ingraham sentenced the south Texas political figure to five years on each of 20 counts in the indictment, but divided them into two groups of 10 counts and directed that they should run concurrently. Parr was fined $1,000 on each count. The government accused Parr and eight associates of defrauding the Benavides Independent School District of more than $220,000 in tax funds, mainly by issuing and cashing checks made out to fictitious persons. Parr, who also is under a five- year state sentence for theft from the district, was convicted of income tax evasion in 1934 and served nine months on a two-year suspended sentence given him after his probation was revoked in 1936. President Truman pardoned him in 1946. Parr was declared bankrupt last January, listing among his liabilities more than $600,000 in taxes claimed by federal, state and U.S. Offices in Lebanon Blasted Loan Defense , Defense attorneys maintained j counl y governments that the exchange of checks between the defendants was a plan of making personal loans to each other but the government claimed they used bank funds in the process. The Gladbrook bank reported an initial loss of $209,000 and said it recovered $100,000 of this from a bonding company and $10,000 from assets signed over by Viers. The State Center bank had no loss. No date has been set for trial of a second case in which Viers is a co-defendant with Howard Stout, 51, Oskaloosa, also a livestock dealer. The government charges they were involved in another 23 million dollar check-kiting scheme. DREES HEATING CO. AUGUST SALE On Air-Conditioners Dial Springtime Anytime With • . . .

Recently scientists suspected | that the deadly disease had crossed the Mississippi River from Moline, 111. where it was found last week. They said their fears were justified when the recent tests of the Fort Madison trees produced definite proof. Dr. Halbert M. Harris, state entomologist, predicted that the disease would spread westward slowly. "Heavy losses to Iowa elms may be expected," Harris said but he added that all trees will not be lost because they vary in their resistance to the disease. There is no known way to save a tree that has been inficted, he said.
