The Council, headed by Mayor Leonard Woods, met briefly and departed. More than 100 persons who were present for an intended discussion of f .he town's anti-loitering ordinance and related matters waited for some time but the Council did not return. New Flareup Center Point's controversial crackdown, involving issuance of several tickets for reckless driving and disturbing of the peace, flared anew following an altercation between Marshal Bud Broxey and an alleged speeder Monday night. Broxey recently was named marshal after Marshal Bud Soss resigned, claiming he could not go along with Mayor Wood's directions for issuance of tickets. After Wood became mayor about two months ago the Council passed an ordinance providing that no person shall be on the streets after business hours without a reason. Woods said the ordinance is aimed primarily at preventing fast driving and other "disturbances." Sing in Streets After the Council failed to return, most of those in the hall later went into the street and some began singing, apparently in an effort to provoke exercise of the anti-loitering ordinance, • Marshal Broxey, three special deputy marshals, arid Deputy Sheriff Harry Ackerman were nearby. They merely urged the group to disperse. Later the crowd dwindled to about 30 and Broxey continued to urge a quiet departure. Several told Broxey he should resign, saying he was losing his friends. Broxey issued only one ticket— for a car with a rear light missing. At about 1 a.m. everyone had departed and quiet reigned. St' NORTH WALES, Pa. 1*1 — The last survivors of an army of wild monkeys, escapees from a biological laboratory, were still at large today. The remnants of Platoon M, which numbered 49 at the start of the invasion, were gallantly holding out against superior forces. Their ranks were thinned by capture and death. The solid front had been dispersed into guerrilla forces and they were being relentlessly pursued. 49 Escape The clash between animals and humans started Tuesday when the 49 monkeys escaped from the Merck Sharp and Dohme research laboratories and swarmed through this community of 3,000 in suburban Philadelphia. It wasn't long before calls began to bombard the police: "1 was hanging out the wash when all of a sudden this monkey comes swinging down the clothes line and . . ." "I was in the kitchen. I was washing the dishes when his hairy face pops up at the window. Scared? Why I almost dropped my best platter." A posse of lab workers, police and 50 gleeful children joined the hunt. The laboratory employes wore heavy clothes and carried nets. Police carried rifles. The youngsters acted as "beaters" to scare the monkeys into the nets. 19 at Large By today all but 19 had been accounted for. Ten were recaptured and police shot 20 others. Those shot, a laboratory spokesman said, were high in trees and couldn't be taken alive. The laboratory official said the monkeys, recent arrivals from India, were to have been used in the production and testing of polio and influenza vaccines. He said none of the animals had been inoculated with any virus. "They can't yet be considered domesticated," the spokesman said. "They are still in a wild state. We are afraid that they might bite or scratch somebody." Iowa Industrial Growth Better Than U.S. Rate 59 of 500 Largest Corporations in Nation Operate Plants in State DES MOINES </Pt—Iowa's industrial growth has exceeded that of the nation during recent years with 59 of the 500 largest industrial corporations in the United States operating plants in the state. 82% Value Increase The Iowa Development Commission announced Wednesday that value added by- Iowa manufacturing totaled $1,200,000,000 in 1954, an increase of 82 per cent over 1947. This compares with an increase of 56 per cent nationally. These figures are based on a 1954 Census of Manufactures report. A commission study shows the greatest gain in Iowa manufacturing value was 385 per cent in the manufacture of instruments and related products while the greatest national gain was 135 per cent in the manufacture of transportation equipment. Comparisons According to the commission's study, Iowa's percentage increase in value from 1947 to 1954 by industry category compared with the national percentage is as follows, with the Iowa increase listed first and the national figure second: Instruments and related products, 385 per cent increase in Iowa, 84 per cent increase nationally; primary metals, 312 and 64; rubber products, 195 and 46; electrical machinery, 225 and 92; mis Ike to Wait, See Before Deciding on Rights Veto WASHINGTON Wi — President Eisenhower said Wednesday he still opposes the Senate version of the civil rights bill but it remains to be seen whether further congressional action will meet his objections.

He promptly denounced the foreign policy of West German Chancellor Konrad Adenauer as a "great danger" to world peace. The Soviet leader made the statement during a massive welcoming ceremony at East Berlin's railway station. He is expected to use his week-long visit to push Moscow's previous proposals for German unity. Election Near Khrushchev, speaking just five weeks in advance of West German elections in which Adenauer faces a tough fight against the Socialists, told the welcoming rally: "Unfortunately our (peace) efforts have not been supported by the ruling quarters of the West German Federal Republic.

(A —Oliver Hardy, the rotund half of the movie comedy team of Laurel and Hardy, died Wednesday. Death came at the home of Mrs. Monnie L. Jones, his mother-in- law. "He had suffered paralytic stroke last Sept. 12 and had been incapacitated since. • He hadn't even been able to speak since he was stricken. His wife, Lucille, was at his side at the end. Laurel and Hardy, 65, were the movies' top comedy team for years after the advent of sound. Their films are still tremendously popular on television. Stan Laurel, 67, lives at nearby Malibu. The specialty of the two was slapstick comedy and they mastered it as few ever have. They rode the wave of poularity for 20 years and their salaries hit $3,500 a week. Then the bottom dropped out after an argument with, the studio over story material The last of their pictures made in Hollywood was released in 1945. Release of old Laurel and Hardy movies to television brought the team's popularity zooming up again. FfVE -DAY IOWA FORECAST Temperatures over the weekend will average from 4-8 degrees above normal.

As the measure stands, it requires jury trial* in all federal court cases involving criminal contempt. This is defined generally as those in which a judge desires to punish a defendant for not complying, or complying too late, with his orders. Acting Atty. Gen. William Rogers was quoted by Sen. Saltonstall (R-Mass) as having said this provision not only would disrupt enforcement of orders of regulatory agencies but would apply to Supreme-Court and Circuit Court of Appeals action. Sen. O'Mahoney (D-Wyo) said any such interpretation of the amendment was "nonsense." Saltonstall quoted Rogers as opposing any jury trial provision in the bill, which now is aimed primarily at enforcing voting rights through civil injunctions sought by the attorney general. Some Republicans think their Civil Rights .... Sec Page 10 the bad experiences of the past. They sow the poisoned seed of distrust against the Soviet Union and the whole Socialist camp. "This is a great danger not only for our peoples but also to the cause of world peace." Khrushchev spoke to thousands of East Berlin Communists just a few minutes after an East German Army band hailed him with the Prussian army "Present ation March" — the military anthem played for Adolf Hitler and Kaiser Wilhelm II. Military Parade The Russian party boss watched grim faced as East German troops wearing Soviet type helmets paraded past in his honor. Khrushchev, heading a nine-man Moscow delegation, stepped onto the East Berlin station platform closely followed by First Deputy Premier Anastas Mikoyan and Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko. Missing was Khrushchev's usual traveling partner, Soviet Premier Bulganin. He stayed in Moscow, increasing Western speculation that his days as premier may be numbered. ' In his speech, Khrushchev praised the East German regime and stressed the close ties between j Moscow and East Berlin. He said: "Thanks to. the steadfast policy of the East German government and the Socialist (Communist) Unity Party—a policy which is in line, with the national interests of our peoples—"more and more Germans realize that the fate of the country and peace in Europe depend upon their fight against militarism." The Russian leader listened impassively, sometimes with a half smile playing around his lips, as German speakers called for strengthening of the fight against "the Hitler Fascism" of west Germany. ference he is very earnestly considering Ohio manufacturer Neil H McElroy to succeed Charles E. Wilson as secretary of defense. The President indicated McElroy will be named to the post as soon as current investigations have been completed. As for Wilson. Eisenhower said the defense secretary has not—contrary to published accounts of his recent testimony before a congressional committee—opposed a budget reform plan favored by the President. Hopes Russians Accept Eisenhower said Wilson merely tried to show what effect the pro^ posed financing change would have on the Defense Department. Eisenhower said he is viewing with the utmost hope the prospects that the Russians will accept the aerial and ground inspection plan put forward by Secretary of State Dulles in the London disarmament talks. The President said general disarmament would follow step by step almost automatically if the U.S. proposal should be accepted But first, he said, there must be some little progress toward mutual trust between the Communist world and the West. Eisenhower's brief comment on the civil rights bill came as the Senate moved toward a vote on a version to which the President voiced strong objections in a statement Aug. 2. He said Wednesday that this statement reflects very accurately his present views. Eisenhower said he believes the jury trial provision for criminal contempt cases, which the Senate wrote into the bill, would be most damaging to the nation's judicial system. Bill the President declined to say specifically whether he would veto the bill if it reached him in the form finally hammered out by the Senate. Eisenhower said he prefers not to comment on legislation until it is before him. He said what the House, or a Senate-House conference, might do to remove his objections to the bill remains to be seen. Answers Critics Answering critics who have contended he should have pushed more actively for the kind of legislation he wants, Eisenhower said he'd be the first to say that sometimes he may not have been as effective as he might have been. But he said he insists on limiting himself to the effort to convince members of Congress of the logic oi his position without recourse to threats or clubs. If that's wrong politically, Elsen- Eisenhowcr ....

The volume was a gain of nearly 11 million dollars over the similar period of last year. But' it also was nearly 26 million less than the total spent for the'same purpose in the corresponding period of 1955. The records showed the sale of 59,268 new motor vehicles and trailers in the first half of 1957; and 56,437' in the same time in 1956, an increase of 2,831 this year. J, *M. Barrett, superintendent of the commission's use. tax department, said that 9Q per cent of the sates were of automobiles, The dollar volume of sales is based on the collection of the a per cent use tax on such transactions. He attributed the increase in volume this year to two factors. One, Barrett said, was the greater number of sales, The other was the higher prices of cars. Collections of the tax ir the first half of 1957 amounted to $3,139,240; for the same period last year $2,920,109; and for the corresponding time of 1955 it was $3,655,785. TJiis. meant a dollar volume of $156,962,012 in the 1957 period; $146,005,495 in 1956', atld $182,789,252 in 1955. The number of vehicles sold increased in each of the first six months of this year, compared with the corresponding month last year, in aU of the ; months except March.

Clinton Man Heads Legion DAVENPORT Mft-The Iowa Department of the American Legion elected 50-year-old Vincent J. Maxheim of Clinton as state commander and called for a Ik million dollar nursing care dormitory at the Marshalltown Soldiers Home at closing convention sessions Wednesday. The organization also chose Des Moines as its 1958 convention city Maxheim and other nominees named by a convention committee were chosen without opposition. The nursing dormitory resolution calls on the state to reappropriate funds.

Skedin of Toledo was adopted. Zink was department ser geant at arms and Skedin was a department historian. Both died during the past year. WASHINGTON w - The Senate Rackets Investigating Committee developed testimony Wednesday that a union linked to racketeer Johnny Dio allowed the Roto-Broil Corp. of America to retain some $23,000 of union dues checked off from employes' wages. Irving Jacobsen, executive vice president of the company, testi fied the money was held back because 'of "financial difficulties." He said other obligations of the company have prior claim in a reorganization the New York firm now is going through. Jacobsen said the dues money was deducted from employes' pay but never sent to the union, Local 355 of the former AFL United Auto Workers (now Allied Industrial Workers). The local is one of those said by the Senate committee to be con trolled by Dio, due for testimony before the committee Thursday Dio has been in jail awaiting sentence after conviction of ex tortion. One official of Local 355 is Ber nard Tolkow. He was scheduled for testimony Wednesday afternoon. Helped Get Charter Harold Krieger, former municipal judge and assistant corporation counsel of Jersey City, testified Tuesday he helped get a charter qf Local 355 from Dio in 1953, when it organized some of the Roto-Broil firm's employes. During Krieger's testimony, Committee Counsel Robert F. Kennedy suggested that Abner (Longle) Zwillman, Jersey racketeer, had an interest in Roto-Broil. But Jacobsen testified Wednesday only he and two partners, Leon and Albert Klinghofer, own Roto-Broil. Jacobsen came to the witness chair after tiie senators had bumped into a series of Fifth Amendment pleas in their efforts to get testimony about Dio from labor union officials. The silence of the union men brought a call by committee members for tough new laws to help union members cast off the yoke of racketeer leadership. "We've got" to protect them and in some instances liberate them from this vice and evil," Chairman McClellan (D-Ark) said. On the witness stand at the time was J. George Snyder, who became president of Teamsters Union Local 362 in New York last winter after the old AFL United Auto Workers had withdrawn the charter of UAW Local 250 on grounds it was a racket-ridden union. Snyder had invoked the Fifth Amendment more than 40 times, pleading that answers to questions about this shift and his alleged dealings' with Dio might "incriminate me." Kennedy Challenge Sen. John S. Kennedy (D-Mass), challenged Snyder to either answer questions or abide by the Ethvaal Practices Code of the union's parent AFL-CIO and resign his union post. He said the union should demand Snyder's resignation in any event, and called it "a test case of the good faith of the Teamsters." Kennedy said that holds true also in the case of Frank Easton, alleged henchman of Dio. Easton has served as president of UAW- Probe See Page 11 Rep. Curtis G. Riehm Rep.

Truck, 3 Gas Tanks Burned CLINTON Quick action by the Clinton fire department was credited Wednesday with averting more disastrous results from a gasoline fire at the Baty Service Station near the Gateway bridge on U. S. 30 here. Flames roared up after the attendant at the station had put 70 gallons of gas in the tank of an empty livestock truck Tuesday night. A. R. Seemalter, the attendant, said he suddenly found himself in a "pool of fire" in the driveway. The truck and three gas .tanks were destroyed. One of the tanks kept pumping gas when its shut-off apparatus was fouled by a short circuit and firemen stopped the flow by throwing the master switch in the station. Hundreds of spectators gathered at the scene of the fire and traffic on Highway 30 was disrupted. The short circuit was held to be the main cause of the blaze. The amount of damage was not immediately determined. For Espionage 4 Co«Conspirators Named; Sought Data on American Defense NEW YORK W) — A man described by federal officials as a Soviet Russian colonel of Intelligence masquerading as a Brooklyn artist was indicted Wednesday as the topmost Russian ever arrested as a spy in this country. The penalty, if he is convicted, could be death. The official said the man, Rudolf Ivanovich Abel, 55, was the highest ranking Soviet national ever arrested in the United States as a spy. Headed U.S. Ring They said he was a colonel in the Soviet State Security Service-? corresponding to the American Central Intelligence Agency—and that he headed the service's spy activities in the United States. They said his base of operations was a photographic studio across the street from the Brooklyn federal courthouse, where a grand jury returned the indictment against him. The indictment named four other men as co-conspirators but not as defendants. They were listed as Reino Hayhanen, AleksandrM. Korotkov, Mikhail Svirin and VI* tali G. Pavlov. They were not further Identified immediately. The indictment charged that Abel conspired to "activate as agents within the United States, certain members of the armed forces who were in a position to acquire information relating to the national defense of the United States." Whether this alleged attempt Wis successful was not indicated; Made Microfilm The indictment said the studio was for making microfilms of information for transmission to Soviet Russia. It said Abel and the alleged .col* spirators hollowed out coins, pens, pencils, bolts, handcuffs, earrings and similar articles so they could be used as containers for the microfilm. They further used short wave radio for receiving instructions and sending information, the indictment said. It said the ring was interested particularly in information "relating to arms, equipment and disposition of the U. S. aimed forces and information relating to the atomic energy program!" Abel was arrested June 21 in a New York hotel by Immigration officers as an alien residing in this country illegally. He was taken to the Alien Detention Center at McAllen, Tex., and, after a hearing, June 27, was ordered deported. The spy charge superseded the deportation order, however, and he will be brought here from Texas for trial. 5 " The officials said Abel entered the United States from Canada in 1948 and that he set up the photographic studio in 1953 as an adjunct to his work as an artist. New Atomic Explosion Rips Blimp; 11 Pacifists Arrested ATOMIC TEST SITE, Nev, MP) Atomic scientists unleashed the fury of an atomic explosion high over the Nevada desert Wednesday with a bright orange flash and a stunning shock wave. The blast—much postponed—was detonated at 5:25 a.m. The force of the blast—equal to 20,000 tons of TNT—ripped an unmanned Navy blimp from its moorings in the blast area. The blimp was dashed to the ground 10,000 yards from ground zero.
