Rebel Stand Is Stjf f er in Eastern Cuba HAVANA Mt - Resistance to President Fulgencio Batista's regime stiffened in eastern Cuba today as antigovernment strikes and rebel flareups threatened to spread throughout the area. Reports said insurgent forces of Fidel Castro had come down from their mountain hideouts and engaged elements of Batista's army. A military headquarters spokesman said army units encountered a rebel band near UberoS on the south coast of Oriente Province Friday, killing 10 insurgents and capturing several others. Censorship in Effect Censorship was in effect on local and incoming foreign newspapers and radio stations and on outgoing news dispatches and details were limited Local newspapers refrained from giving any news about the political situation In the pro-Rebel center of San tiago De Cuba, a group of armed men forced attendants at a serv ice station to turfl on their gaso line pumps Friday night, then set the place on fire and fled. In another incident to ..Santiago, a woman bus driver was killed by a bomb hurled at her as she was about to board a bus for duty. Strike May Spread Sketchy reports from the trou ble spots indicated the strike which has gripped Santiago may spread to Manzanillo, Bayamo and Palma Soriano De Holquin in Oriente Province and to Cama- guey Province west of Oriente. A general work stoppage was called in Santiago following an incident Wednesday that involved the* new U.S. ambassador, Earl E. T. Smith. Black-garbed women staged a demonstration while Smith was visiting the city. Police scattered them with fire hoses and arrested many.

MILTON KELLY WASHINGTON UP) -Labor racketeer Johnny Dio is coming out of jail long enough to face questioning by senators on charges that he had a big hand in victimizing many New York workers. Chairman McClellan (D-Arki of the Senate Rackets Investigating Committee said Dio will be placed on the witness stand Thursday or Friday. McClellan said Dio can invoke j the Fifth Amendment if he chooses, but that in any event "the public can judge" the racketeer on the witness stand. The committee is exploring charges that Dio and Teamsters Union boss James R. Hoffa formed a corrupt alliance that ultimately could subject more than a million New York workers to! "crooked" labor contracts and "economic slaver y," chaining them to less than decent wages. That was the testimony Friday of John McNiff, executive secretary of the Assn. of Catholic Trade Unionists. McNiff "spoke of "collusion between crooked management and crooked unionisms" Charges Extortion McClellan has told the committee Dio and his New York under world henchmen have "fattened their 'pockets" by extorting from employers and dipping deeply in to the funds of union members for whom they negotiated* union contracts that allegedly provided few, If any benefits. McClellan says the evidence will show that Hoffa helped Dio to get charters for Teamster locals and that through this alleged alliance, Hoffa sought a "stranglehold" over—New York and the Eastern Seaboard. As the committee was listening to charges of labor exploitation, a New York judge ordered Dio and three other convicted labor racketeers paroled just long enough to testify in the hearings. Paroles also went to Samuel Goldstein, president of Teamsters "Local 239 and Max Chester, former financial secretary of Local 405 of the Retail Clerks Union. Both were convicted with Dio of a $30,000 shakedown conspiracy against two New York electroplating firms. The three are being held without bail pending sentence. Dio also is under indictment in the acid blinding of labor columnist Victor Riesel. The fourth man to be paroled is Alfred Reger, sentenced last Tuesday to serve 5 to 10 years in prison for extorting $1,750 from two lumber companies. Reger is secretary-treasurer of teamster Local 522. « Subpoenaed All four men have been subpoenaed by the rackets committee. They told General Sessions Judge John. A. Mullen they had consented to appear before the Senate group. The subpoenaes call for Dio to appear before the committee next Thursday and for the other three to appear on dates between next Monday and Aug. 12. The committee heard two labor union members testify of conditions under which they said they and fellow workers actually rebelled in strikes against their Decontrolled unions, rather than against the companies they worked for. ' They said they were blanketed into J)io locals without their consent) often under threat of being fired {f they objected or refused to pay their dues, They told the committee labor contracts were made without bargaining and that these agreements yielded few or no benefits to the employes. JSeveral small busijness employers acknowledged signing contracts with Dio-bossed locals of Jthe Teamsters or Allied .Industrial Viurkere unions without any bargaining j with Uioir-. employes or plant elections. f j Some of these employers said they signed to avoioT; trouble or to -prevent otheiy.unjdns, from or- genl^jig tijeir employe on tough- mmm.-j^m.j^tm t>et- Urva|e ,8tli8n ;,Ute:eontrictfi called for—that the contracts actually required few or no real benefits. McClellan called such practices "a racket." Committee Counsel Robert F. Kennedy, "If the unions are a racket, certainly the employers who make the contracts must fall into the same category."

"After all,. Why not live a diversified life?" he asked, leaning back r in & beige : leather chair in his skyscraper office. in Manhattan's teeming garment center. ''It makes for. a rridre-rounded person." • v A year ago Bob, who is tall, dark and spectacularly handsome, was happy and successful as a partner in .', a . multimilion-dollar women's sportswear firm. Then Hollywood beckoned — and it won't let him alone. In 2 Films He has appeared. in two .films and Darryl Zanuck, gambling on him as a future. star, signed him to an exclusive contract. He is the first new talent Zanuck, who manufactured many a celluloid celebrity in the past, has put under contract since leaving Twentieth Century-Fox to become ah independent producer. The possibility of one of its junior magnates replacing Clark Gable has stirred the imagination of clothing industry workers along Seventh Avenue here as nothing since, perhaps, the invention of the elastic brassiere. It all happened — or so the script goes — as the result of two unbelievably lucky breaks. The first break: Some eight months ago Norma Sheared saw Evans relaxing in the Beverly Hills hotel swimming pool. Struck by his resemblance to her late husband, producer Irving Thalberg, she asked if he'd like to play the role of Thalberg in "The Man of a Thousand Faces." Evans did. The second break: A few months later Zanuck saw Evans in a New York night club, had no idea who he was, but tracked him down and asked if he'd like to play the role of the bullfighter in the film adaptation of Ernest Hemingway's novel, "The Sun Also Rises." Evans did. As a matter of fact, Bob had | appeared on more than 300 radio ! programs as a child actor but a j youthful illness forced his retirement. When he recovered a year later, he found theatrical jobs hard to find, so he entered the textile field. 500 Employes In a few years he and his partners— his older brother, Charles, and designer Joseph Picone — achieved a success that can be termed mildly colossal., Their North Bergen, N. J., factory has 500 employes. Bob, who is a bachelor, likes to swim, box, play tennis and ride horseback. He isn't at all worried that as a serious, both-feet-on-the- ground young businessman he will fall victim to Hollywood's after dark temptations. "Why, I even cook most of my own meals because of my aversion to going out," he said. "1 like to stay home in the evenings."

Walsh, received a badly uut foot while mowing the lawn when he slipped and his foot was caught by the whirling mower blade. He' was taken to Memorial Hospital at Denison By D WIGHT MCCORMACK DES MOINES MV-Reposing in a glass-topped box in the vault of the secretary of state's office is the Constitution of Iowa, which is 100 years old Saturday. Several years ago Secretary of State Melvin D. Synhorst ran across the aging document, which had been gathering the vault. He promptly had it boxed and glassed, and put it on display. However, it now has been returned to the vault. It is brought out occasionally because Synhorst makes a point of showing it to all school groups which tour the Statehouse. Other visitors sometimes ask to see it. In''Pretty Good Shape' The document is described as in "pretty good shape," although somewhat yellowed by age. The Constitution, although covering about 15 pages of small type in reprint form in the "Iowa Official Register", was penned in fancy script in its original form. Although this is the centennial year for the basic law of the state, it has been amended only 20 times. These covered changes made in 11 separate years. After the adoption in 1857, by a vote of the people of 40,311 to 38,681, the constitution was amended 10 times in the next 27 years. The other 10 amendments were added over a period of 68 years. The last ones came in 1952. The anniversary day passed with apparently no special recognition. However, the 1957 Legislature conducted a joint session of the Senate and House last March 14 to observe the centennial year. This was set up by the 1955 Legislature. William J. Petersen of Iowa City, superintendent of the State Historical Society, spoke at the observance on the builders of the Constitution, Justice William L. Bliss of the Iowa Supreme Court on the Constitution itself, and Federal District Judge Henry N. Graven on the Constitution in retrospect. Signed at Iowa City The Constitution was drafted and signed by 36 delegates who met early in 1857 at Iowa City. Twenty-one of the delegates were Republicans and 15 Democrats. Fourteen were lawyers, 12 farmers, and 10 were of miscellaneous occupations. It was the third constitutional convention. A convention which met in Iowa City in 1844 adopted a constitution, but it was twice submitted to the voters and rejected both times. The second convention met at Iowa City in 1846, the year Iowa became a state. The Constitution drafted then was ratified by the voters later that year. However, it contained a number of provisions which were found to be unsatisfactory in practice. One was a prohibition against banking institutions. As a result, the Legislature in 1855 set in motion the action which resulted in adoption of the present Constitution. The conventions met at Iowa City because Iowa City was then the state capital. It had been in Burlington, but was moved to Iowa City in 1841, and on to Des Moines in 1857. Preamble, 12 Articles The Constitution contains a preamble and 12 articles. A Bill of Rights says, among other things that the Legislature shall make no laws respecting an establishment of religion, no religious test shall be required as a qualification for any office, and that anyone engaged directly or Indirectly in a duel shall forever be disqual 8 Timet Herald/ Carroll, low* Saturday, Aug. 3, 1957 CHRISTMAS IN JULY . . . wearing a bathing suit to keep cool, blonde Roasmund Leslie arrives at the Grocery Trades Fair in London, England, with a pair of oversized Christmas "crackers" for display there. Thats what we call rushing the season a bit. ified from holding any office. Banned is imprisonment for debt, and slavery. '* The Right of Suffrage article included a provision that only white males might vote. However, that later was changed to eliminate the "white", and the "male" was removed in effect by an amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Other articles of the Constitution include those which set out the powers and duties of the legislative, executive, and judicial departments of the state government. The preamble says, in part: "We, the people of the State of Iowa, grateful to the Supreme Being for the blessings hitherto enjoyed, and feeling our dependence on Him for a continuation of those blessings, do ordain and ' establish a free and independent government by the name of the | State of Iowa." ! It then goes on to outline the | boundaries of the state. One of the reasons the Constitution hasn't been amended more is that any change must be approved by two consecutive sessions of the Legislature, and then by a vote | of the people at the next general 1 election. Another is that only every 10 years, at the beginning of a new decade, can the question of a constitutional convention to revise the Constitution be submitted automatically to the voters. New String Is To Soil Bank By OVID "A,- MARTIN WASHINGTON «v-The government is Offering-farmers 500 million dollars tb reduce acreages of surplus cotton, wheat, corn, rica and tobacco next year under the soil bank .retirement plan. But there's a new string attached. To get this money, farmers will have to cut their' total harvested acreage below thp average of the past two years. There was no such requirement for the program this year under which 614 million dollars 1 in payments were committed. . This new restriction, announced by the agriculture department Friday, is designed to prevent the shifting of cropland from surplus crops to other crops. The department said such a practice would soon create new surpluses and add to the toal oversupply of farm commodities.- 5 Surplus Crops The 500 millions which congress authorized for the soil bank in the Agriculture Department appropriation bill passed Thursday v/ill be apportioned among the five surplus crops. Wheat's portion, the only one announced at this time, will be 178 million dollars compared with 231 millio/js obligated under this year's program. The department said wheat farmers would earn an average of $20.88 a bushel on retired wheat land compared with $20.04 this year. Rates for other crops will be announced later. The wheat program was set up at this time because much of this grain crop will be seeded in the fall. The others will be planted next spring. Congress has set a limit of $3,000 on soil bank payments to any one producer nex*. year. Last year there was no such limitation. This payment ceiling will be the only limit on the number of acres a farmer may agree to retire next year. Soil Rank Rase To limit shifting of land from one set of crops an another, the department will set up a soil bank base for farms participating in the program. Generally speaking, this base will be the average of all crops, except hay, harvested on a farm in 1956 and 1957. A farmer would have to limit his 1958 harvested acreage of all crops to his soil bank base, minus the number of acres he agreed to take out of cotton, wheat, corn, rice and tobacco, or any combination of them If he harvested more, he would lose all payments | and become subject to a "civil ! penalty" equal to half the payment he would have earned. In announcing the program, under Secretary of Agriculture True D. Morse, said the department regretted the imposition of further controls on farmers. "In the present emergency, I however, we must try to make the acreage reserve more effective in adjusting 1958 production," he said. Mary Alice Mohr at School in Kentucky Crimen Herald New*.
