•** Churchmen Plan Broad Inquiry into the Problems of Religious Liberty By GEORGE W. CORNELL NEW HAVEN, Conn. (^-Protestant and Orthodox church officials have decided to undertake a broad inquiry into problems of religious liberty. It envisages direct talks with Roman Catholic leaders. In a turbulent session of the World Council of Churches, delegates Tuesday night threshed through a mass of proposed reso­ lutions—severalaimed at the Ro- MATT HARDWARE Headquarters for COOKER CANNER Presto 7-Quart Canning Equipment $299 COLD PACK CANNER $945 Enamel 7-Quart •„ $2 25 Enamel 7-Quart COLANDER Alumllite Finish.

Diplomatic Job Instead of issuing pronouncements, the council's policy-making Central Committee decided to put its diplomats to work. "Other means can be much more efficient than general statements," said Lutheran Bishop j Hanns Lilje of Hannover, Ger- 1 many. "Negotiations, correspond! ence, and personal visits can often i produce more results." i But there was a verbal tide as ! the meeting, on the eve of its ad| journment,. pondered what to do ; about areas of reported friction on religious matters—particularly In 1 Roman Catholic countries: I It finally was on a motion by ; the Most Rev. Geoffrey Francis I Fisher, archbishop of Canterbury, i that the churchmen approved this I course: "That the Executive Committee i be asked to arrange for studies to I be made of the problem of re- j ligious liberty arising in Roman Catholic and other countries." 1 Direct Approach ! The archbishop said that the i step would lead to "a direct ap- ; proach to the Roman Catholic ! Church about matters which arise 1 between us." "This is a terribly important and complex matter," he said. "We can't run away from it. And what I'm proposing is not running away from it, It is the quiet and responsible way." Several resolutions, by the Rev. Dr. Martin Niemoeller of Wiesbaden, Germany, and by others, had been offered, hitting at policies in predominantly Roman Catholic countries. > The Rev. Dr. Charles Westphall of the French Reformed Church, sharply objected. "It would be unjust and a culpable mistake," he said. In France, which is mainly Roman Catholic, he said, "There is perfect liberty and increasing respect for Protestants. I feel something similar is happening in Italy."

The debate arose over a proposed resolution about Protestant difficulties in Colombia, South America. Some churchmen wanted to add specific—and general- criticism of Roman Catholic practices regarding Protestant minorities. • Eisenhower(Continued from Page ,!•). Mrs. J. H.

Mrs. Schaake came here with Mrs. William Neunecker of Glidden when she returned from a visit with her mother in Anita. Mrs. H. W.

He replied that'he has said before he has various degrees of enthusiasm for Republican candidates,and has his own ways of expressing them. The Chief Executive put in an emphatic plug for his foreign aid program, up before a Senate- House conference committee. He said the welfare of the United States demands that the government show generosity and a spirit of cooperation over a long term to help other nations learn that they can live in freedom and increased prosperity. Long-term economic aid authority is the center of the big fight on foreign aid. Eisenhower said he knows of no better dollar investment than the one provided by the mutual security program. Other Subjects The President also touched on these subjects: PERSONAL GIFTS — He never accepts gifts with any selfish purpose or from private groups such as corporations. He said such things as trees and shrubbery for his Gettysburg, Pa., farm are intended to make it a good looking place in the expectation it will become some sort or public property. The implication seemed to be that Eisenhower expects his country estate eventually to take on something like the status of Franklin D. Roosevelt's Hyde Park, N.Y. home. Sen. Morse (D-Ore) recently accused the President of "political immorality" and said his acceptance of expensive gifts violated the spirit of conflict of interest laws. WISCONSIN — Eisenhower said no one has asked him to try to help former Gov. Walter Kohler, the Republican nominee, in the Aug. 27 special election for the Senate seal left vacant by, the death of Sen. Joseph R. McCarthy. But Eisenhower volunteered the statement that he is a Kohler man and one of Kohler's great admirers. CRITICISM — He is quite philosophical, he said, about criticisms voiced against himself when he compares them with the even stronger accusations hurled against George Washington in his second term as president. This was Eisenhower s soft voiced reply to questions about statements such as one by Rep. Bailey (D- WVa) that Eisenhower didn't tell the truth about the civil rights bill. Bailey has been quoted as calling the President a "lousy liar" though the newsman who asked Eisenhower about it did not quote those exact words. Later Bailey denied he had used that language. US. Approves Railroad Freight Boosts of 4-7% •" WASHINGTON (Jrv-The government has approved freight rate increases ranging from \ to 7 per cent for the nation's railroads, effective after IS days' notice to the public. The new tariffs are expected to Personals Dr. John E. Martin, chairman of the State Board of Optometry Examiners, attended a meeting of the board at the State Office building in Des Moines, Tuesday. He was accompanied to Des Moines by Mrs. Martin and daughters, Ruth and Lois, who spent the day with Mrs Martin's parents, Mr. and Mrs. W. A. Crook. Cadet Marvin E. Smith, son of Mrs. Clara A. Smith of Carroll, arrived here Friday night after completing six weeks' training with the Reserve Officers Training Corps at Fort Sill, Okla., the artillery and missile center. He spent a few days with his grandparents. Mr. and Mrs. C. J.

Those became effective about the first of this year. Under the ICO action, Eastern and Western railroads get a seven per cent rate hike, and Southern roads get a four per cent hike. There were .some exceptions noted in the order. The earlier emergency increases amounted to seven per cent in the East, and five per the South and West The net annual effect of these emergency changes 'was an estimated 455 million dol- ' lar' increase annually in freight costs. j Thus, the over-all rate increases' —Tuesday's plus the emergency boosts earlier—run to 14 per cent in the East, 12 per cent in the West and 9 per cent in the South. The over-all increased freight cost was estimated by the ICC staff at $897,800,000 a year. Mr. and Mrs Tom Lake left Tuesday morning for their home at Flippin, Ark , after a five-week visit with Mrs. Lake's mother, Mrs. John Vinke, at Manning, her sister, Mrs. H. W. Hagedorn", and brother-in-law and sister, Mr. and Mrs. John Gaffney, at Carroll. They were accompanied by Mrs. Vinke, who will be with them through the winter. LUNCHEON GUESTS ARCADIA - Mrs. Clark Mechem of Thompson, president of the Iowa Federation of Women's Clubs, and Mrs. John Hammill of Britt were luncheon guests of Mrs. Edward J. Hennings of Arcadia Monday. Barbara Hagedorn returned Tuesday from Cedar Falls, where she had visited her college roommate, Sharon Luther, since Sunday. Miss Hagedorn was accompanied to Gladbrook by Mrs. Eva Timberlake, who is spending this week with relatives there. 2% Discount Rate Set On Home Loans DES MOINES UP> — Iowa home buyers under mortgages insured by the Federal Housing Administration ""'will have to pay a premium or "discount rate" of two per cent. This was announced Tuesday by Frank C. Wahrman, Iowa FHA director, in commenting on the FHA action in Washington raising interest rates from 5 to 5% per cent with lowered down payments. Wahrman said he did not know when the changes will become effective. He explained that the "discount" or premium is demanded by lenders to bring mortgage yields up to current interest rates on the general money market. Wahrman said this is the first time the FHA has formally permitted a discount to be charged to a buyer. The maximum rate set by the government is 2Vs per cent but it will be less in most parts of the country. The director said it will be up to lenders whether they want to take a $300 down payment on a $10,000 house.

H R party will benefit more politically by 'standing for a stronger civil rights bill, even if that means no measure will be passed by Congress at this time. They were reported arguing against a compromise. On the other hand, some Republicans who voted against the jury trial amendment felt they could accept gracefully a compromise under which the criminal contempt trial provision would be limited solely to voting cases. One of these, Sen. H. Alexander Smith of New Jersey, told his colleagues he regards the measure as "the greatest advance in the field of civil rights since the war." Although they wouldn't say so publicly, Senate supporters of the jury trial amendment were obviously prepared to make a concession toward limiting it to voting cases. There was no clear indication how such a compromise would appeal to House members, who will decide the bill's fate after the Senate passes it. The House defeated all jury trial proposals by a substantial margin. Democratic leaders would like to wrap up the bill with House acceptance of the Senate's amendments and deliver it to Eisenhower's desk. But unless Republican ranks break, the measure is likely to be sent to a Senate-House conference committee. If that happens, Senate Democratic Leader Lyndon B. Johnson of Texas apparently will attempt to weigh the Senate conferees in favor of the jury trial amendment. Johnson is reported to favor a five-man Senate unit consisting of Senators Eastland (D-Miss), Kefauver (D-Tenn) Olin , D. Johnston (D-SC), Wiley (R-Wis) and Langer (R-NP) . Republican Leader Knowland of California may elect to fight such a Johnson'proposal for conferees. If he does, the Senate will have to settle the issue, Any Senate-House conference would bti expected to work over another controversial feature left unchanged in the bill when the Senate closed off further amendments last week. This section, applying to a proposed civil rights investigating commission, would impose a maximum fine of $1,000 and a year In jail on "whoever releases or uses in public without the consent of the commission evidence or testimony- taken in executive session, ..."
