f*\ 11 TN *1 ITI* TT 1 1 Carroll Daily Times Herald Vol. 88—No. 180 Carroll, Iowa, Thursday, August 1, 1957—Twelve Pages Delivered by Carrier Boy In Carroll Each Evening for 35 Centa Per Week 7 - Slflilo * Bellinghausen Brothers Exhibit Top Hogs at Says Dio Once Employed To Organize Plant Ex • Union Official Testifies N. Y. Racketeer Helped at Roanoke, Va. WASHINGTON tf>—A former union official testified Thursday New York racketeer Johnny Dio once was employed by the International Ladies Garment Workers Union to help organize a Roanoke, Va., plant. Lester Washburn, former president of the old AFL United Auto Workers—now named the Allied Industrial Workers in the AFL- CIO—gave the testimony to the Senate Rackets Investigating Committee. The dale of Dio's alleged employment for the Roanoke job was not brought out specifically, but it was indicated it was around 1950. Got No Help Washburn said that in 1951 or 1952 when he was seeking to oust Dio from the UAW-AFL, he went to David Dubinsky, president of the 1LGWU, to ask his aid but got no help from Dubinsky. The latter is an AFL-CIO vice president and a member of the AFL- CIO Ethical Practices Committee. Washburn said Dubinsky "got very excited" when Washburn told Dubinsky that the 1LGWU once itself had retained Dio to do an organizing job at a Roanoke, Va., plant. Washburn said he was misled when he let Dio into the UAW- AFL. Convicted Racketeer Washburn said Dio. a convicted New York racketeer, "muscled in" to control six New York City locals of the UAW-AFL. Washburn ordered Dio out and suspended the locals in 1954 only then to be ousted himself as the union's national president. Washburn now is out of the labor movement and running a resort in Wisconsin. Before that, back in 1951 or 1952, Washburn said, he was called into a meeting with George Meany, the AFL secretary-treasurer, and the then AFL Vice Presidents Dubinsky and William McFetridge, Chicago. Washburn said the AFL officials wanted Dio removed from power in the UAW-AFL. He said he also wanted Dio ousted but didn't know how to proceed because all that was known against Dio at that time was that he once had been convicted of extortion. "I asked Dubinsky for some help in getting rid of Dio," Washburn said. "But all he had was a file of clippings from the New York Times, which 1 already had myself." TOP DEMONSTRATION TEAM . . .

Eastern Iowa Gets Relief With Storms By The Associated Press Iowa got more of the same old hot weather Thursday after severe storms had struck the northeast part of the state.

" The Carroll County Treasurer's office received a $50,021.40 check Thursday from the slate treasurer as the county's current apportionment of the road use tax fund, Mrs. C. C. Sullivan said. Carroll County's share comes from a disbursement of more than six million dollars in highway money to Iowa counties, cities and towns, the state treasurer's office said. The total included $4,910,055 to counties for use on their rural secondary roads and $1,122,298 to cities and towns for their streets, Heretofore, counties have retained this money in local banks and used ,lt as needed. But the 1957 Legislature enacted a new law requiring that collections for car licenses, from which the money comes, must be sent to State Treasurer M. L. Abrahamson each month. The money is then sent back to the county from the state office and will find its way back into local bank accounts, Abrahamson said. The departure from the old system means that collections by county treasurers for car licenses and other state purposes are not deposited by the counties in local hanks and held until needed, Mrs, Sullivan said. cruit training Dodge.

The new safety commissioner told patrolmen at the ceremony that their first and full-lime duty is to be "on the roads where the traffic death and injury toll demands every minute of safety we can apply." He urged the officers to arouse public reaction against the highway death toll and to stimulate public support of safety programs. The patrolmen were told to expect hard work, long hours and discouragement because they had accepted the responsibility to help protect the public from traffic dangers through strong enforcement.

Republicans Reply To Land Purchase Critics AMES t/O — The three Republican members oi the Stale Highway Commission said Thursday that criticism of the Loveland in- Senate Passes Compromise Bill on Defense Funds WASHINGTON UP>- The Senate passed by voice vote Thursday a $33,759,850,000 compromise bill providing funds for the Defense Department for the 12 months that began July 1. As the defense money bill went to President Eisenhower it carried $7,357,800,000 of new funds for were Sharon Reising and Marlene |the Army; $10,021,355,000 for the Schrad of the Breda Helping j Navy and Marines; $16,314,100,000 Hands whose subject was "Hid den Beauty," Kathleen Baumhover and Deanna Koren of the Mount Merry Maids who demonstrated "Chair Ease" and Marlene Koenig and Janet Trecker of the Halbur Happy Lassies whose title was "Easy Going Eye Catchers." Red ribbons in the senior division were awarded to Karen Kaus and Muriel Bruggeman of the Templeton Stars for a demonstration of "A Place for Everything and Everything in its Place"; Nadine Fleshner and Donna Stoolman of the Sheridan Go-Getters for "Waste Baskets"; Diane Drees and Joyce Schechinger of the Maple River Top Notchers, Pictures"; and Betty Weber and Joyce Claussen of the Wheatland Willing Workers, "A Thing of Beauty." In the junior division blue ribbon winners and their subjects were: Nancy Deeth and Nancy Schumacher, Union Willing Work- for the Air Force; with the balance for the office of the secretary of defense and interservice activities. The Senate acted with only brief debate after temporarily laying aside the civil rights bill. It did so shortly after the White House said the Defense Department and some other agencies might not be able to meet their August payrolls unless the Senate acted on pending money bills stymied by the civil rights debate. Approval of the motion to take up the defense appropriation bill temporarily displaced the civil rights bill. But it will automatically become the pending business again when the Senate completes action on the defense money bill. The plan was to adopt a similar procedure for the Agriculture Department money bill. Both are compromise versions already passed by the House and needing only a final Senate okay to send ers, "Soft and Comfy"; Mary Ann \ them to the White House. Neither 4-H GIrU See Page 11 faced major opposition. Transport Control Said Bridges' Goal Journal said Thursday in a copyrighted story that Harry Bridges is seeking to ally his West Coast waterfront union with the Teamsters Union and East Coast longshoremen in a huge transport combine. The story, written under a San Francisco dateline, said he "is very much inclined to join hands with a couple of other fellows who are equally powerful, equally unruly. 'Sensational News' "If his ideas are realized, he says very candidly, it would be sensational news not only for the other unions but for America's businessmen and the U.S. government. "For his friends are Jimmy Hoffa, who seems likely to grab control of the Teamsters and get it booted out of the AFL-CIO and Capt. Bill Bradley, whose East Coast longshoremen's union suffered a similar fate four years ago." In New York, Bradley was quoted as saying his union would negotiate with the Teamsters to form an amalgamated transport union but that he would oppose including the West Coast dock union as long as the left-wing Bridges heads it. "There's one thing I know," the Journal quoted Bridges as saying, if the Teamsters and the two | ta |f about that now. terchange purchase by Gov. Herschel Loveless and Democratic Commissioner Cecil Malone of Atlantic was "grossly ill-advised." In a joint statement, the three commissioners r.aid the $150,000 settlement for 375 acres near Loveland was made after a hearing had been held, was made unanimously, and had official approval of the U. S. Bureau of Public Roads. 'Fair. Equitable' The $150,000 figure, they said, was "a fair and equitable price." Commissioners Robert K. Beck of Centerville, Russell Lundy of Des Moines and Chris Larsen Jr. of Sioux City said "it would appear the Iowa Senate knew what it was doing when it refused to confirm Gov. Loveless' appointment of Mr. Malone." Malone Is on the commission by interim appointment from Loveless. Loveless and Malone had said Wednesday the Loveland land purchase was made prior to a May 24 hearing at Atlantic on the route of Interstate U. S. 6 and that the $150,000 paid was higher than the $140,000 appraisal price. New Candidate? The three Republican commissioners, who comprise a majority on the five-member commission, replied that Malone didn't know what he was talking about. They added: "It looks like we have a new Democratic candidate for governor in the person of Cecil Malone. We wonder where that leaves Gov Loveless." Loveless, meantime, told his news conference Thursday he expects representatives of a congressional committee to come to iowa to investigate the purchase of the 375 acres near Loveland from Ward Currie. He. also mentioned "additional land purchases by the commission" but said he "can't dock unions got together they'd represent more economic power than the combined AFL-CIO. Cites Power "They are so concentrated. An economic squeeze and pressure can be exerted that puts any employer in a very tough spot—and furthermore puts the U.S. government on a tough spot/] Trooper Roces Ahead, Clearing Path- Not a Fender Dented as Brakeless Truck Roars Down Mountain Road at 85 Mph Cumberland Child Hurt Fatally by Auto CUMBERLAND ifl—A 16-months old girl was fatally injured Wednesday by a car which was backing into the street from her father's service station here.

State Trooper Reu Silbaugh, a man with nerves to match those of Glenn Swit'.er of Fairmont. Neb., agreed with Switzer.

By this the opposite lane of traffic. He quickly swung his car around, sped past SwiUcr's rolling truck and kept his siren roaring. Motorists scattered. "I was thinking about jumping a couple of times but then I looked at the speedometer," Switzer related. "The last time 1 looked 1 was rocking along about 85 miles an hour and 1 just said to myself: " 'Man, you're crazy if you jump.' So 1 decided to ride her out." Clears Way Trooper Silbaugh breezed into the little community of Hopwood was "really at the bottom of the hill and had everyone out of the way when the tractor-trailer roared into town, "1 had brushed my truck against the hillside a couple of times and slowed, her down to about 70 miles an hour," Switzer said. "When 1 got into Hopwood there was a little- grade and that slowed me up. Then I saw a muddy path alongside of the road and I just pulled over and stopped." Switzer, father of five children, collapsed and was treated for shock. "• v -, I was scared, hut I'll ber] driving my truck again," he said. "Nothing like this ever happened before. The trooper told me I was - • - lucky and i agree. That guy did a wonderful job in clearing the path for me," Beck, Lundy and Larsen said Malone has "grossly ill-advised the governor and proven that he is incapable of interpreting and analyzing even the simplest set of facts." "After only 30 days on the commission and after attending only two meetings," they said, "Mr. Malone wants to substitute his judgment for the commission's, its engineers and the U, S. Bureau of Public Roads. The project, including the Loveland interchange, was unanimously approved by the commission Aug. 29, 1956." Loveless said Thursday he discussed the Loveland purchase and other matters by telephone Wednesday night with Rep. Blatnik (D-Minn), who heads a U. S. House subcommittee on federal .highway affairs.
