Secret Meeting Held by Regents Group, Loveless DBS MOINES tfl — A special committee of the State Board of Regents met in closed Session Wednesday with Gov. Herschel Loveless to discuss building problems at the three state educational schools. The session lasted 2 1 ? hours but neither the governor nor the regents' spokesmen had anything to say about details of what transpired. Loveless indicated her.;., would meet with the regents again in early fall after building needs again had been reviewed. Wednesday's session was the second such meeting since adjournment of the Legislature. At the time he vetoed the 2^ per cent sales tax bill to put the tax back to its former rate of 2 per cent, the governor also killed about 11 million dollars in appropriations for capital improvements at; the state schools. The governor's only comment after the meeting was that there had been discussion about expected, enrollment increases, why certain buildings were needed now and related matters. Those who met with Loveless were: President J. H. Hilton.and B. H. Piatt, business manager of Iowa State College; Provost Harvey Davis and E. T. Jolliffe, business manager at the State University of Iowa and President J. W. Maucher of Iowa State Teachers College. DISPOSING OF DISPOSABLES . . . This teepee-type incinerator, probably the largest of Us kind in the wortdY gobbles up 30 to 35 hoppers of disposables per shift at Du Pont'g Chamber* Works in Penns Grove, N.J. One of the most significant and interesting developments in the search by American industry for ways to reduce costs is the growing use of disposables—comparatively inexpensive materials which can be used once and discarded. Disposing of these disposables presents another problem. At the Chambers Works, six specially equipped, trucks like the one at the Incinerator opening, gather tip the hoppers and deliver them to the incinerator. State May Allocate Emergency Funds— Discuss Replacing 1-Way Bridge Near AMES (/P>—Steps were taken by the Iowa Highway Commission Wednesday to lessen- traffic hazards at the one-way bridge over Butterick Creek three miles east of Jefferson on Highway 30. The highway at that point will be turned over to Greene'County when the new U. S. 30 cutoff is completed. The commission voted to discuss with the county possible allocation of farm-to-market emergency funds for a new bridge. The project, with new paving, wtluld cost about $85,000. Drivers on Iowa highways have been stepping up their speed this year, possibly because of safer roads,. a report on file with the Iowa Highway • Commission disclosed Thursday. , Average speed last November was 54.3 miles an hour but in May,195? it had risen to 57.6 miles an hour. The average includes 70- mile-an-hour drivers who hit 70 miles or. faster. -The figures were contained in a report filed by the commission's traffic and safety engineers. Pointing out that many roads have been widened, Russell I. Brown, Iowa safety commissioner said: . "Persons naturally gain confidence and do more passing on wider roads." The report,: covered the period prior to the' July 4 effective date of the. new nighttime'speed limit of 60 miles ah. hour. Other details showed that: About 11 per cent of drivers in 14 Times Hefold, Carroll, lews Thursday, Aug. I, 19S7 May were going at 70 miles an hour or faster, compared with 6.9 per cent in November. Speed of trucks rose from 5.5 per cent traveling at 55 to 60 miles an hour to 11.4 per. cent going that fast in May, although Iowa has a 50 mile an hour limit on trucks. Average top speeds of 60 to 62 miles were noted on Highway 6L west of Muscatine; Highway 20 west of Eldora andK mile east .of the junction of Highways 6 and 21. Tolls on the Highway 30 hridge oyer the/Missouri River at Blair, Neb. will have to' continue for about three years until repair and rehabilitation work on the span is paid for, Research Engineer Mark Morris told the Highway Commission. The bridge is scheduled to become toll free when all debts are paid. The span is operated &y Jthe Nebraska-Iowa Bridge Corp.,, < as trustee for Iowa and Nebraska. The Highway Commission \ap-: proved putting under contract about $3,500 of sounding'work on the proposed interstate highway above the mouth of the Floyd River along the Missouri River. The Commission voted to* make 3,000 yards of broken highway concrete available' for rlprapping Storm Lake. The commission of- fered it first to the Iowa Cohser- . vation Commission or in. lieu of that to W. C. Edson of Storm Lake. . The Commission received from Dewey B. Stuit, dean of the college of liberal arts at the State University of Iowa, a protest againSt widening U. S. 6 in Iowa City' from two to four lanes from. the Western limits to Riverside Drive.. 1 Stuit said the present highway is a hazard to students who must cross it and the danger would be increased by widening it. He said the-$250,000 cost could be better spent elsewhere in Iowa and suggested that the traffic problem could be met at Iowa City by building a bypass west of the city.

By JACK BELL WASHINGTON OB - A 72-18 Senate vote returned the civil rights bill, .to the House today amid reports President Eisenhower will call Congress back in No; vember unless he gets a measure he feels he_ can sign. The Senate's jury trial version oi the bill was roundly condemned by civil rights advocates, but they helped supply the votes for the historic passage of the measure Wednesday night. It is the first of its kind approved by the Senate in more .than 80 years. The fate of the bill was uncertain in .the House, which passed a measure much broader in scope and more stringent in enforcement provisions by a 286-126 vote June 18. Talk of Compromise But some House members who had spoken out most bitterly against the Senate changes were starting to talk more of compromises,, expressing hope they still could salvage a bill they could consider worthwhile. Because of the uncertainties, Senate Republican Leader Knowland of California told a reporter it was "too early to say" whether a special civil rights session might be called in November. Other senators said Knowland had told the Senate Republican Policy Committee in , a closed meeting that a special session is a definite possibility if the Senate's version of the bill is not amended to jconform more nearly to, Eisenhower's wishes. Either the House or a Senate-House conference committee could make the changes, but in either case the Senate would have to approve later. Eisenhower, declined at his news conference Wednesday to shed any light on a possible veto. But responsible administration officials have said he will reject the measure if t.he Jury trial provision inserted by the Senate is not revised. Any such veto would be likely to be accompanied by the announcement that Congress will be called back to Washington this fall, these officials said. A special , session call would be likely also, they added, if Congress decided not to act finally in this session. No Republican senators voted No GOP Votes Against against passage of the bill when the roll was called Wednesday night .after nearly five weeks of debate. The 18 Democrats who voted .against it were all South­ erners except /or Sen. Morse of Oregon. ' ^ Morse said .he could not bring himself to vote "for a civil" rights bill which bears little more than the title." Calling it an odoriferous corpse, lie said it--"raise* hopes and expectations which will not be satisfied.'' Five senators from Southern states, all Democrats, voted for passage. They were Lyndon B. Johnson of Texas, the Senate Democratic leader; Yarborough of Texas; Kefauver and Gore of Tennessee; and Smathers of Florida. In all, 43 Republicans and 29 Democrats voted for passage. As it passed the Senate, the bill would authorize the attorney general to seek court injunctions to enforce minority voting rights. 'The House had voted for similar authority also to enforce civil rights in general but the Senate knocked this out of the measure. ' Rejected Jury Trials The House rejected all proposals for jury trials. The Senate wrote into the bill a far-reaching provision for jury trials in any federal court criminal contempt case involving issuance of art" uv junction'. Eisenhower said this would be "most damaging to the entire federal judiciary." Criminal contempt generally arises from the desire of the judge to punish a defendant, for disobeying a court order or for such delay in complying with it that the order becomes ineffective. The Senate provided that juries in such cases must be open to the inclusion of Negro members. Both bills provide for establishment of a bipartisan commission to investigate civil rights and for appointment of an additional assistant attorney general to he>d a new civil rights division in the Justice Department. Speaker of the House Sam Rayburn of Texas was reported trying to line up sufficient votes for House acceptance of the Senate's version of the bill. Some Democrats thought an Eisenhower veto, would hurt the Republicans politically. However, Rep'. Cell*r (D-NY), leader of the forces which pushed the Original bill through the House, said he thinks the House and Senate "would accept a modified bill limiting the jury trial amendment t6' civil rights cases only." * Sees Acceptance He predicted both''houses would accept such an amendments Knowland indicated it would be acceptable^) him. But he said he doesn't know whether Eisenhower would be satisfied with only that change in the measure. };>' '• Rep. Keating Of New York,, ranking Republican among .'the prospective House conferees, said 1 in a statement he will "make every effort to restore to the bill some of its original virility." Sen. Russell (D-Ga), leader of the Southern forces, told newsmen after the final vote he would be^ "delighted" if President Eisenhower would veto the bill and "hoped and prayed" he would do so. But he added he did not expect the President to veto it.'" Asked if he believed Congress' now would pass the bill in'some form, Russell said he did. "I'm a realist," he said, noting'that'the measure now had passed both branches' by "substantial margins." Bloodmobile At Manning 13th Blood donors of the Manning area are reminded by Mrs. J. Lawrence Cochran, county Red Cross blood bank chairman, that the Red Cross bloodmobile will be at Firemen's Hall, Manning, from j!to:.7^p.m. Tuesday, August 13.
