Revised A men dment Tightens Rights Battle Iowa City Man Charged With Arson IOWA CITY W — A 24-year-old former State University of Iowa student and insurance salesman was held in jail here Thursday on charges of setting a fire which ! gutted a home he rented at Coral- j ville. ! Donald Doucet, whose wife and j four children were vacationing in Wisconsin at the time of the fire, was placed under $2,500 bond on charges of arson with intent to defraud an insurer. Authorities said the fire at the house, which Doucet rented from O. S. Morse of Iowa City, caused damage estimated at $15,000. County Atty. William Tucker said Doucet had $13,000 insurance on his household goods. Tucker said Doucet admitted he started the fire in a room off the kitchen and remained until driven out of the house by smoke. The county attorney said Doucet claimed he was dragged out by some person who was not identified and could not be located. Tucker filed the charges on the basis of a report filed by the state fire marshal who investigated. PHRASE'S ORIGIN Origin of the phrase, "admitted to the bar," stems from the Inns of Court in London. A student became a full-fledged barrister when he finally was allowed to leave his seat in the outer court and present a case at the wooden rail, or bar, behind which the judges sat. During the 14 years preceding World War I more than 11 million immigrants were admitted to the U.S. By JACK BELL WASHINGTON 'MV-Sen. Knowland (R-Calif) said today he was confident a jury trial amendment to the civil rights bill Would be defeated despite its revision in an apparent effort to sway wavering senators. But supporters or a jury trial provision evidently hoped that the revised amendment would tip the scales their way in the nip-and- tuck fight over the issue. Negroes on Jury A new section added to the pending amendment ^Wednesday night would permit Negroes or others to serve as federal court jurors regardless of whether or not they were qualified under state laws. Knowland said that while this ' change in federal law might be desirable in itself, it did not lessen his opposition to writing a jury trial into the civil rights measure. And he told a reporter he did not believe the proposal had cost opponents of the amendment any j votes. He said he still was confident of victory and was ready to vote at any time. But there were indications that proponents of the jury trial ! amendment — including Southern ' senators who are opposing any civil rights legislation — also are looking forward more confidently to a showdown. Sees Vole This Week Senate Democratic Leader Lyndon B. Johnson of Texas said in recessing a 10-hour Senate session Wednesday night he believed it would be possible to get a vote on the amendment this week. Earlier in the day, Sen. Russell (D-Ga', the Southerners' quarterback, had blocked by three separate objections as many efforts by Knowland to get unanimous consent for a vote on the amendment this week. Sponsors of the new section to the amendment included Senators Pastore (D-RI) and Kennedy ID- Mass), both of whose positions on the jury question had been regarded as uncertain. However, Pastore said he was j not committed to voting for the • amendment. Kennedy was not' available. I Sen. O'Mahoney (D-Wyo) welcomed the addition to the new section to an amendment he had proposed jointly with Church and Sen. Kefauver (D-Tenn). "It will promote the development of racial relations," he told a reporter. "It does not weaken the bill." But Sen. Allott (R-Colo) called the newest proposal "just a feeble effort to make a bad amendment better," and predicted "it will be defeated."

Hof fa, acting arid talking his assurance of succeeding Dave Beck as Teamsters Union president, says the union's chief executive an administrative officer under the executive board. Hoffa joined members of a special constitution committee today in reshaping the union charter union which Beck held virtually dictatorial power. Hoffa, a vice president, flew here from his Detroit headquarters. Election Cinched The constitution changes drafted in the committee's two-day ses- ', sion will be offered to the international's Miami convention Sept. 30. Hoffa's election there is regarded by the union hierarchy as about cinched. Asked about Senate Racket Committee accusations linking him with an asserted "hoodlum stranglehold over the Port of New York," Hoffa Wednesday night told reporters: "There is nothing 1 cannot answer, and anything I do answer will not affect my candidacy for union president." Chairman McClellan (D-Ark) accused Hoffa of being involved in exploitation of union members in New York. "They do have a job to do," j Hoffa said. ! "But I can say that their statements concerning me are based | on rumor, misstatements and misunderstandings. Ready In Testify "It will clear itself up in time." Hoffa said he was available for questioning by the committee at any time and added: "I can explain the New York situation to I everybody's satisfaction." j On constitution revisions to be j v/orked on here, Hoffa said the president should serve under direction of the 16-man executive board—composed of 11 vice presidents, three trustees, the secretary-treasurer and the president. But Hoffa declared that if he is elected president he would expect the four conference chairmen (or presidents) "to take orders from me—with the approval of the board, of course." Pvt. Paul A.

Army Photo) $46,671 Month Paid 1,010 In Social Security Benefits Hungarian Reds Arrest Priests - More than 1,010 Carroll County residents were receiving monthly social security insurance benefits, totalling $46,671 at the end of 1956. In releasing the benefit figures for Carroll County, Leo W. Smith, manager of the Des Moines social security office, noted that there had been a 25 per cent increase in the number of social security beneficiaries during 1956. "However," Smith said, "the increase in 1957 will be much larger. As of June 30, we have already received more applications i r o m residents of Carroll County than we did during the entire year of 1956." Smith said that the large increase in the number of social security beneficiaries during 1956 and the even larger increase anticipated for 1957 is primarily due to the extension of social security coverage to farm families in 1955. Another factor in the increase for 1956 was the lowering of the re tirement age for women from 65 to 62 on November 1, 1958. Of the 1,010 benefits which were being paid in Carroll County at the end of 1956, 626 were retirement benefits, 186 were to dependents of retired persons, and 205 benefits were to survivors of persons who were insured under the social security program at the time of death. The "family insurance" concept of social security payments is also emphasized by the fact that 115 children were among those receiving benefits. CHANGE OF ADDRESS Airman third class Donald E.

Wft.. ~ Hungary's Communist government struck out Thursday at opponents in the Roman Catholic Church announcing the arrest of what it called a "major group of counter-revolutionary priests." Accuse Mindszenty The Interior Ministry in a statement also accused Josef Cardinal Mindszenty, a refugee in the U. S. Legation in Budapest since last November, of instructing those arrested to loot the government's religious affairs office during the Mi-Russian revolt last fall. The statement charged the car- linal's secretary, the Rev. Albert Sgon Turcsanyi, "took part in the ooting at the head of an armed roup." "They shipped the secret docn- .ents to Mindszenty," the minis- y said. The Budapest press reported eviously that Father Turcsanyi in jail. The statement said the group of looters" also included lstvan Ta- bodi, a fourth-year theological student; Pal Lieszkovsky, identified as a lieutenant colonel under the dictatorship of pro-Nazi Adm. 'Nicholas Horthy; Fathers Imre Vargu, Antal Kukla and "several other priests." Trial -Shortly' The total number arrested was not announced. The statement said they would go on trial "shortly" in Budapest Municipal Court. The announcement said the rebel priests had their headquarters at the Central Theological Seminary in Budapest. Their activities were said tc have started before the. outbreak last October and to have become "very great" at that time. The present Hungarian Catholic hierarchy, under the leadership of Archbishop Joseph Grqesz, has been following a more conciliatory policy than Cardinal Minds- zenty's toward the Communist regime. It has formed an organization called "Opus Pads" (the work of peace) to cooperate with the Communist-organized "peace movement."
