Page 14) WASHINGTON UP) - The House temporarily sidestepped a decision Thursday on what to do about the civil rights bill. The bill, which the Senate passed Wednesday night on a 72-18 vote, was laid on the speaker's desk to give House leaders more time to sound out sentiment and consider compromise proposals. For the time being, no attempt will be made to send the measure to a Senate-House conference to resolve differences with the bill which the House passed 286-126 on June 18. The House Bill, closely following administration recommendations, is broader in scope and more stringent In enforcement provisions. Special Session Reports House Republican Leader Martin of Massachusetts added sub stance to reports that President Eisenhower may call Congress back into special session unless he gets a measure he feels he can sign. Eisenhower has objected partic ularly to a provision added by the Senate to require jury trials in all criminal contempt cases in the federal courts. Martin told newsmen that if Congress finally passes a bill which fails to' meet Eisenhower's specifications he would personally recommend that the President veto it and call Congress back in November to try again. Speaker of the House Rayburn of Texas, spokesman for the Democratic House majority, said he would have a statement Friday on what he thinks should be done. It was expected the House would decide then what action to take. Line Up Support ' There was backstage maneuvering to line up supporters for a compromise which would limit the jury trial amendment to cases involving only the protection of voting rights. Some civil rights advocates expressed hope that by some such compromise a bill they could consider worthwhile might be salvaged. Backers of such, a measure, roundly criticized the jury trial provision, but they helped supply the votes for Senate passage of this first bill of its kind to go through the Senate In 5 more than 80 years. , .i Reword for Missing Centerville Woman CENTERV1LLE MV-The parents of Zanna Lee Strandberg, 23, who disappeared July 8 in Cleveland, Ohio, said Thursday they are posting a $250 reward for the first positive information leading to her whereabouts. Miss Strandberg, who had been working in Chicago, dropped from sight while in Cleveland on a trip oyer the long July Fourth weekend. On July 17 her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Hubert Strandberg. received word she had been seen'in Iowa City on July 9 in the company of a man but there has been no further trace of her. Mr. and Mrs, -Wilber Brown, relatives of the Strandbergs, have gone to Cleveland to try to develop information useful in the search. - . , Tail Wag Wil Decide Wether Dog 'Dognapped' CHICAGO m- Was Tobey, a 3- year-old Boston bull terrier, "dog- napped" from his master or not? Refusing to rely on mere human testimony a Circuit Court judge Wednesday ruled Tobey himself— through a wag of his tail—will solve the dilemma. Judge Jacob M. Braude ordered the terrier brought before him Aug. 22 to determine whether Tobey wants as his master an Omaha divorcee or her former husband. Clarence Gaughen, 49, of Chicago, , told the court Wednesday his former wife took Tobey, now in Omaha, out of his backyard "while I wasn't looking." He asked that she be cited for contempt and he be allowed to stop alimony payments. Mrs. Caughen was not in court, but her attorney, Charles C. Cooley, said his client was not a dog- napper. "She came to Chicago and dropped by her former husband's home for a visit," Cooley said "She could sense Tobey was terribly unhappy. It could not be 'dognapping' because Tobey accompanied her willingly—wagging his stub tail." Judge Braude says it's now up to Tobey and his stub tail. Hope Fading for Mountain Climber, 88 COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. UPI —Hope waned Thursday for Mrs. Inestine B. Roberts, who is 88 and loves to climb mountains. She has been missing since Monday on Pikes Peak. "I'm worried—I warned her not to try to climb it," said Mrs. Marjorie R. Feldkirchner, a daughter. "We won't leave until we find her," said Sheriff Earl Sullivan, who led a hundred or so searchers in combing a 20-square-mile area Wednesday. Mrs. Roberts left her home in Colorado Springs Saturday on her 15th climb alone up the 14,100-foot peak. She reached the summit Sunday evening and started down Monday morning. The last ones to see her Monday afternoon, said she carried a small' bag of food. The area where she disappeared is filled with crevices and wooded ravines. Wild animals roam the rugged terrain. Nighttime temperatures fall almost to freezing. There are deep snow drifts near the summit. Mrs. Roberts wore only light clothing and carried a cloth coat. WON'T GIVE GROUND . . .

With H-Rockets The Weather Showers Move Toward North Iowa By The Associated Press Partly cloudy skies and southerly winds prevailed in Iowa Thursday as' widely scattered showers moved toward the northern portion of the state from the west. The winds were offsetting the front's easterly, movement, however, and no significant rainfall was forecast. Sioux City had the state high of 93 Wednesday. Lows early 'Thursday ranged from 57 at Lamoni to 68 at Mason City, Spencer, Sioux City and'Council Bluffs. BERLIN W — Russian Commu-! nist Party, Chief Nikita Khrushchev Thursday warned that the explosion of war over Germany would bring the United States under the threat of attack from hydrogen rockets. Khrushchev told a special session of the East German Parliament the Western Powers are trying to turn West Germany into a war base and are creating "an extremely serious situation." "They want to use the German people as cannon fodder in their plans to conquer the world," the Red chieftain declared. To Scare Voters The speech parroted numerous other blasts from Khrushchev, Soviet spokesmen and Soviet propaganda organs. Presumably this time it was intended to scare West German voters who on Sept. 15 elect a new Parliament and decide whether to retain the government of staunchly pro-Western, anti- Communist Chancellor Konrad Adenauer. Before Khrushchev spoke, East German Premier Otto Grotewohl restated his regime's endorsement of the long-standing Soviet proposal for the withdrawal of Russian and Western troops from German soil. Warning that modern warfare could lead to the devastation of densely populated areas, Khrushchev declared: "This (destructive power) should be kept in mind by statesmen of England, France and other countries whose areas would be in range of atomic and hydrogen weapons in case military operations start. "Statesmen of the United States should also think about it as in our jime, where rocket developments are rapid, distances cannot save any country from the effects of atomic and hvdrogen weapons." The Russian added that "all Russian Farm Tractor, Car to Be Shown at Fair DES MOINES 1 *1 — .A Russian farm tractor and a popular model of Russian automobile will be exhibited at this year's losva State Fair as special features of the fair's farm equipment show, officials announced Thursday. Fair Secretary L. B. Cunningham said Iowa farmers "can now see by actual comparison how far ahead we are in producing farm equipment." The Russian tractor and automobile are "at least 10 years behind" American equipment of this type, he said. The tractor ir the seven-Ion "Stalinec," produced in Stalingrad and widely used behind the Iron Curtain. It is a 54-horsepower crawler-type machine with a four- cylinder diescl engine. Tests of the tractor conducted recently showed it would pull only about 55 to 60 per cent of its own weight, compared with 80 to 85 per cent for most American tractors. The car is a Pobeda and is comparable in size to low-priced American automobiles. Tests show the power delivered at the rear axle was only 34 horsepower as compared with 200 or more in most low-priced American cars. Both vehicles were obtained by Vern L. Schield, Waverly, who made them' available to the fair for exhibition. They will be on free view to the public during the fair, from Aug. 23-Sept. 1, Cunningham said.

High-Level Delegation Khrushchev fired his broadside on the second day of his week's visit with a high-level Kremlin delegation to th* restive satellite. Hammering away at what he called the aggressive plans of the "imperialist Western Powers" in West Germany, Khrushchev said: "The policy of militarization followed presently by the ruling quarters of West Germany and by the Western Powerr puts the peoples of Europe and the German people,,, ,.

Tews Next Sunday ARCADIA - The Rev. Theo A. Tews, pastor of Zion Lutheran church here slnc° 1920, will preach his farewell sermon to the congregation at services beginning at 9:30 a.m. Sunday.

The Russian charged the Western Powers want "to have a reunified Germany which would be an obedient tool of their aggressive plans." Rips Adenauer Khrushchev also lambasted Adenauer but insisted that Russia "has not and will not mix in the Sept. 15 elections in the Federal Republic." Khrushchev claimed the Soviet Union would soon have intercontinental hydrogen missiles when he visited Great Britain in April, 1956. Responding to anti-Communist demonstrations, he blurted out that Russia would soon have hydrogen- bomb guided missiles "which oan hit every point in the world." At the time, Allen Dulles, director of the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency, described Khrushchev's claim as "a little on the high side." CARROLL FORECAST Partly cloudy through Friday.

Aerial Watch On Gravel Trucks DES MOINES (ffv - Iowa Highway Patrol airplanes are keeping a watch on rock and gravel hauling operations because of complaints received recently, acting Safety Commissioner Russell Brown said Thursday. Brown said the planes are looking for speed violations by the truck drivers and are checking to see that loads of loose gravel and rock are covered as required by law. "The" problem of speed comes in because the drivers are paid by the number of loads they haul during a day," Browr said. The department also has received conv plaints that gravel flying from uncovered trucks has caused paint and body damage to nearby autos, he said. s.o.b. in the spelled out version. The blow did not knock down the photographer, and he did not swing back. Paroled from Prison Dio, convicted extortionist, was paroled from prison so he could comply with the Senate committee's subpoena for him to appear as a witness. Before the blow was struck, Dio had walked briefly into the committee's hearing room, but left when photographers and reporters clustered around him. He refused to say a woid, until his profane outburst as he swung his well manicured fist as he left the building, and ducked into a taxicab with' two sturdy looking male companions. The racketeer's progress from the building had been a sort of hide and seek game. Dio ducked around pillars, headed down hallways, and always encountered another reporter or photographer. He ignored questions as to whether he would invoke the Fifth Amendment when he took the witness chair. Swings on Lensmcn As Dio got to the revolving door that leads to the street, he spun and swung on the photographer. "I've got a family," the racketeer said in grating tones. Dio was to be called as a witness in the afternoon committee session, In the forenoon, a group of his alleged henchmen were busy taking the Fifth Amendment to questions about their association with Dio. Sidney Hodes of Brooklyn refused to tell the committee whether he helped Dio set up "phony" unions. The investigators contend Dio used such unions as a device to try in North Dakota. The voting assembly of the congregation has issued a call to the Rey. Cleo Kautsch of Platte Center, Neb. The call was signed by the following elders Otto Grundmeier, Philip Wenzel and Lester Popp. Pastor O. E. Weiss of Wall Lake, Carroll circuit visitor, was present when the call was extended Monday night.
