Daily Times Herald Vol. 88—No. 182 Carroll, Iowa, Saturday, August 3, 1957—Eight Page* Delivered by Carrier Boy In Carroll Each Evening (or 35 Cent* Per Week / * Slflfle Copy ' Southern Senators Meet on Rights Bill Strategy Soviets React Cautiously To New Proposal Dulles Calls for a Broadened Air and Ground Check on Armaments LONDON Iff)—Secretary of Slate Dulles' outline of a two-part Western plan for-air and ground arms inspection of the Soviet Union and most of North America and Europe has drawn a cautious first reaction from the Russians. Dulles flew back to Washington to report to President .Eisenhower after terming the Soviet reaction "not as bad as had been feared and about as good as had been hoped." Soviet delegate Valerian Zorin told the U.N. Disarmament Subcommittee the plan presented Friday by Dulles would receive careful study. But he suggested that it was unfair to Russia and fa vored the West. Under the Western proposals, Russia and the West would exchange permission for inspectors to search on the ground and by air for warlike moves. All of U.S.S.R. The first proposed area would take in all the Soviet Union, North America above the Rio Grande and Europe except for a fringe of Ireland and southern parts of Spain and Portugal, Italy, Albania, Greece and Turkey. Or, under an alternate plan, Russia could agree to inspection of the Arctic area plus two pie- shaped segments with points at the North Pole. This would include most of Europe from Ireland to the Urals on one side and Alaska to Russia's Kamchatka Peninsula on the other. MAY BE ASKED TO LEAVE COUNTRY . . . Government anger rose against U.S. Ambassador Earl E. T. Smith and there are reports he may be asked to leave the country because he visited rebel held areas in Eastern Cuba. Smith became the target of an unprecedented campaign of attacks by government spokesmen because of his critical comments July 31 against police precautions in rebel infested Santiago. He is 'shown here in a file photo made in 1957. (NEA Telephoto) Food Market Destroyed In Newton Fire NEWTON MB—A major Newton food market was destroyed Saturday in a spectacular fire. Frank Stockton, owner of Stockton's Su- per-Valu, made a rough prelimin- The subcommittee, composed of! ar y estimate of $300,000 loss. Britain, France and Canada in addition to Russia and the United States, will meat again -Tuesday. Complains About Bases Zorin complained that the proposals did not allow for Soviet inspection of Western bases in Japan, North Africa, the Middle East and elsewhere. Another Soviet spokesman later said the main threat to Russian security comes from bases excluded from the plan. The spokesman said Russia considered Dulles' proposals of ways ' to control disarmament meaningless without cutting down on arms. Zorin told the subcommittee he was sorry there had been no dis- , cussion of "the main questions of disarmament." "Control of disarmament only has any meaning if it is an integral part of a general program for measures of disarmament in the sphere of conventional and atomic armaments," Zorin said. British spokesmen viewed Zorin's reaction as unfavorable. The British have taken a more pessimistic view of the protracted negotiations. Emergency Landing By,an Airliner at D.M. DES MOINES Ifft—A United Air • Lines plane made an emergency stop here Friday night when a passenger, Mrs. Isabelle Randell, 71, of Belmont, Mass. developed a nose bleed. , She was treated at a hospital and then spent the night at a Des Moines hotel. The plane was on a scheduled non-stop flight from Denver to Chicago. For a time the flames raged out of control and spread to the nearby Fortune Cleaners where loss was confined to smoke and water damage. The fire broke out about 7 a.m. in the rear end of the store where the hot water heater is located. All local fire equipment was called out and off-duty policemen aided in the job of handling the crowd, and traffic. The market is located on U.S. 6 about three blocks east of the Newton city square. For about an hour the fire seemed to be under control but shortly after 8 a.m. flames broke through the roof and the front end of the one-story brick building crashed into the street. • When the flames spread to the cleaning establishment the major efforts of fire-fighters were concentrated on preventing further spread of the blaze. The market is owned by Frank Stockton. New Outbreak In Utah Prison; Hold Women Flareup Brief; 14 Frightened Musicians Released Unharmed POINT OF THE MOUNTAIN, Utah (If) — Fourteen frightened women were held hostage for one hour Friday night by 18 inmates who seized control of the auditorium at the Utah State Prison. But all the women, members of a novelty orchestra group from Price, Utah, were released unharmed. The women were assured protection from the other prisoners who did not take part in the flare- up which briefly held taut this prison. On Feb. 6, all 500 inmates rioted and took control for 12 hours. Outbreak Short Friday night's outbreak was short. It was preceded by a scuffle in the corridor near the auditorium. One guard, Reed Smith, was accosted by some of the prisoners. He was rescued by guard Sgt. Everett W. Carlson and the prisoners went to the auditorium for a special show. At the end of the show, the agitators jumped on stage, grabbed three prison personnel and took control of the auditorium. The women said they were scared to death but other prisoners tried to assure them that nothing would happen. The band leader, Mrs. D. A. Arthur, 45, said one of the prisoners gave her an oil painting from the prisoners' art gallery in the auditorium. He thought that might make her feel better, she said. Armed with Bats When the prisoners took over, another group armed itself with baseball bats obtained from the nearby recreation office.

The woman, Mrs. Ida Kennedy, about 60, was lying fully clothed on her bed but her tar-paper residence was in great disorder as the result of an apparent struggle. Police Lt. Jack Hoden said bloodstains indicated Mrs. Kennedy had first been attacked out side her home. The struggle then presumably continued indoors. Furniture was smashed and dish es were broken. Hoden said that after the attacker left, Mrs. Kennedy apparently was able to crawl to her bed where she died. No weapon was found and there was no apparent motive for the attack, Hoden said. The body was discovered after police were called by Bernard Flock, 40, an Omaha oil refinery employe. Flock tcld authorities Tie occasionally roomed at the home and that he and Mrs. Kennedy visited neighbors until about midnight when he took her home and went to Omaha. Flock said he returned to the ! residence Saturday morning and immediately notified police when he found the place wrecked. The house is located near the railroad tracks in southwest Council Bluffs. Story of Origin Is Told Again By Mormons Now One of Strongest, Most Industrious and Diversified Churches By GEORGE W. CORNELL Associated Press Religion Writer Out under the stars on a broad hillside an extraordinary story was retold this week, depicting the origins of a church which has become one of America's strongest, most industrious and diversified religious institutions. It is the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Its activities —spiritual and physical—have attained • a scope in proportion to membership unmatched by any denomination in the nation. "Never has the church been in a more healthy and flourishing condition than it is today," said Harold B. Lee* of Salt Lake City, one of the church's ruling Council of 12. In religious dedication, the church draws a vast portion of its entire manpower both into missionary and priestly duties. In material vigor, it has developed a multimillion-dollar network of industries and services. Members are known generally as Mormons, named after an ancient prophet. Once a tiny, persecuted band, they now number nearly 1% million, twice as many as 26 years ago—about half the increase through con versions.

He ordered the door opened and the hostages released. Turner said a shakedown of the cells later disclosed three knives and several baseball bats.

A year old farm boy, R a n d y Drees, son of Mr. and Mrs. Rudy Drees, was in good condition at St. Anthony Hospital here Saturday after a narrow escape from drowning Friday afternoon. The boy fell in a tank of water on the Drees farm north of Carroll in midafternoon. His mother applied artificial respiration and called the Carroll fire department. Firemen went to the farm with a resuscitator and oxygen was adr ministered under the direction of. a physician.

Koster has lain on his stomach for most of the 15 years. But Friday he sat up in a wheel chair and exchanged marriage vows with Mrs. Josephine Masterson, 40. 38th Birthday It was a memorable day "I'm the happiest man in the world," Koster said. It was also, coincidentally, Roster's 38th birthday. ' Koster, has had 27 operations since he entered the hospital. He has received 70,000 shots to dull the pain and will continue to take injections of morphine every three hours. In two operations, surgeons removed Koster's legs. After long practice, he can sit up in a wheelchair—a feat he first accomplished only eight days ago. Both Koster and hjs bride are divorced. Koster and his first wife were divorced after he was hospitalized. The new Mrs. Koster, a telephone company supervisor, first saw Bud eight years,ago when she came to his ward at the, hospital to visit her son, John, a victim of cerebral palsy. "I liked Bud the day I met him in 1949," she said. "I thought: 'What tremendous courage!' " Move Into New Home The couple moved into a new five-room brick home in a Chicago surburb after the wedding. The house has ramps for Bud's wheelchair.

British Move Into Revolt Area MANANA, Bahrein (*l — British ground troops and armored cars Saturday moved by sea and air into revolt-hit Muscat and Oman to aid the pro-British sultan. Reports from London said a detachment of Scottish Highland troops already had entered the sultan's restive Arabian peninsula domain. A Foreign Office spokesman said the troops were being used "in support of the sultan's forces." Reports reaching the British capital said seasoned Cameronian troops had reached Ibri, a fort inside Oman still loyal to the sultan. The rebels have claimed the fort, manned by British-led Oman scouts, had been surrounded. Air Vice Marshal L. F. Sinclair, commander of British forces in the Persian Gulf, disclosed that a small number of British armor and foot troops would support the sultan's forces in their attempt to regain rebel-held territory. Sinclair said the RAF will continue to support the sultan's troops. RAF planes have been pounding rebel targets for two weeks since he asked for British help in crushing the revolt.

TIPTON un— The Cedar County sheriff said Saturday the prowler who was shot and killed at a farm near Wilton Junction Thursday night has been identified as Jake Van Dresseldorp, 44, owner of a farm not far from where the shooting occurred. This development came after local and state authorities had tried to trace the identity of the man who entered the farm home of Harry Schneider,.. 62, six miles northeast of Wilt6n Junction, and threatened Schneider and his wife with a gun. Identified by Employee Sheriff Elwood Hemmingway said Identification,was established by Eugene Schroeder, a farm hand employed by Van Dresseldorp, who had become concerned when his employer turned up missing Friday. The sheriff said that Van Dres­ seldorp, a veteran who had been wounded in World War II, formerly lived at Pella and moved from there last March to his farm near Durant, about three miles from the Schneider fajm. Officials learned that Van Dres- seldorp's wife and son had been visiting this week at Pella and were, not at home Thursday or Friday. Hid Under Stain Schneider told authorities that the prowler apparently hid under the stairway in the basement and when Schneider found him there the man said "this is it" and pulled an automatic pistol which later was found to be empty. Schneider said he ran upstairs, with the man in pursuit, and got a ,38 calibre revolver which he fired at the man three times. Hemmingway said the shooting i was an "absolute case ol self de­ fense." Schneider had been under a doctor's care for a heart condition. His wife and their daughter were at home at the time of the shooting. Apparently Beserk The sheriff said Van Dresseldorp was well respected by persons who knew him, that he had no motive for robbery and that he apparently went berserk. Schroeder, the hired man, said the "last time he saw Van Dressel­ dorp alive was about 6 p.m. Thursday when they were working on the farm. He said he became worried Friday and went to Tipton. There he saw in a newspaper window a a head .and shoulder picture taken after Van Dresseldorp was dead. Then he went to. the sheriff, Van Dresseldorp's pickup truck was found close to a schoolhouse near the Schneider farm, Retreat for Nuns At Convent Here Fifty-four nuns of the Francis can Sisters of Perpetual Adora tion reported for retreat at St. Angela Convent here Friday morning.

Russell Calls 9-State Group to His Office To Decide on How Much' More Resistance to Offer Battered Measure WASHINGTON W — Chances for a final Senate vote next; week on the controversial civil rights bill Improved Saturday- after a strategy session of Southern senators. Sen. Russell (D-Ga). leader of the Dixie group, told newi- men after the meeting he e*> • peel's a Senate vote "within a reasonable time." "Up to now there has been . no filibuster on this bill," Rus- , sell said. "None was planned at our session." In a burst of action after four weeks of debate, the Sen-, ate late Friday completed everything except • vote oa . final passage. By JOHN CHADWICK ; WASHINGTON WV-Sen. Russell * , (D-Ga) called a meeting of senators from nine Southern states today to decide how much more resistance to offer to the adminis- . tration's battered civil rights bill. The Senate finished its rewriting of the House-passed measure late yesterday, but final arguments on its passage were put over until next week. "This bill is not going to work any hardship on the people of Georgia," Russell said in advance of the closed meeting in his of-. fice. But he said he was going to vote against it. Senate Democratic Leader Lyndon B. Johnson of Texas said he hoped for a roll call vote Wednesday on final passage. He ex- : pressed hope that it would pass by "an overwhelming majority." But the ultimate fate of,'the bill was clouded in uncertainty be-, cause the House either must accept the Senate changes or a compromise will have to be worked that can run the gantlet of both branches. May Be Vetoed In addition, President Eisenhower's blast at the bill, as amended by the Senate, prompted speculation about a possible veto if the measure should reach him with a jury trial provision in it. Senate Republican Leader Knowland of California said he regards the bill as "better than nothing at all." He said he would vote for it, but he expressed hope that it would be "strengthened" by a Senate-House conference committee. . In contrast, Johnson said he believed the bill had been strengthened by the Senate and "made more acceptable" to the great majority of the nation and the Congress. He called it "a meaningful and effective civil rights kin •> THE LIGHT OF HIS LIFE Sightless Mike Smith lovingly caresses the twins that have made him the proudest pop In Erie, Pa.
