Hoover Sees Inflation and War Dangers SAN FRANCISCO WV — Former President Herbert Hoover, 83 today, sees two clouds on the horizon — "the clouds of possible war and the cloud of possible inflation." He refused to prophesy on either at a news conference Friday in his hotel suite. Puffing at a pipe which went out twice in the half-hour interview, Hoover appeared hale and hearty. Reporters who have seen him frequently since he left the White House almost 25 years ago said they had not seen him looking so well in many years. Values Changing. On war, Hoover said "the West has grown definitely stronger, but military values are changing. You can evaluate ground armies but you can't evaluate where nuclear weapons are concerned. "Especially when we know nothing about our major enemy and that's Russia," he added. On inflation, Hoover said he views the five to six cents drop the purchasing power of the dollar as "very dangerous" and declared "these people belter do something about it." "I mean the administration, the Federal Reserve Bank and the various financial agencies of the government," he explained. Hoover said his greatest hope for the world was for peace . . . "everything that makes for peace is the overriding need right now." The man who was president from 1920 to 1933 termed juvenile delinquency a "monstrous growth.' Teenage Crime He said teenage crime is increasing faster than the teenagers themselves, with juveniles stealing 66,per cent of the stolen cars, committing more than 53 per cent of the burglaries, 24 per cent of the robberies, over 50 per cent of the larcenies and over 16 per cent of the rapes. He blamed slums, broken homes, lack of moral and religious training, "and the constant romance of crime by the opinion making media." , Hoover said he still rises at 6:30 for breakfast and works from 7:30 to lunch. "I rest after lunch because that's the doctor's orders," he explained. His health, he said, is "fundamentally good."' No Political Comment He refused to comment on national politics and was a bit huffy when newsmen asked his ideas on the threatened 1958 battle for the Republican nomination for governor of California between Gov. Goodwin J. Knight and Sen. William F. Knowland. The latter has said he won't run for the Senate in '58 and many California Republicans think he'll try to unseat Knight as a step toward the pres idency in 1960. "I'm not going down that road," Hoover snapped. "You go down that road and you wind up in a mud hole." He did not elaborate Candidates Galore— Iowa GOP Determined to Oust Loveless, Coad La Verne Olsens Bock from Vacation In Western States (Timet HmM News Service) MANNING — Mr. and Mrs. LaVerne Olsen and family have returned home following a week's vacation in western states. Mr. and Mrs. Bennie Godall and family of Chicago will arrive Aug. 10 to spend some time in the Cletus McGrane home. Judy Vollmer has returned to her duties at the Iowa Lutheran School of Nursing in Des Moines following a three-week vacation with her parents. Mr. and Mrs. Paul Vollmer Mrs. Otto Porsch has returned home following surgery at - the Manning hospital Tommy Koon, son of Mrs. Bernice Koon, left Aug. S for military service. Br DWIGHT MCCORMACK DES MOINES m — Politics is just "bustin" out" all over Iowa. But it's largely in the speculation stage in view of the 1958 primary election isn't until June. However, there have been three announcements of candidacies and one has taken out nomination papers. It looks like the Republicans are going to "gang up" on two Democrats. The GOP wants to oust the only Democrats holding top level slate offices. They are Gov. Herschel Loveless and Congressman Merwin Coad of Boone, 6th District. Both are first-termers. 8 Potential Candidates So far, at least eight Republicans have been listed as potential candidates for their party's nomination for governor. At this point, at least two seem likely to give it a try. They are Lt. Gov. William H. Nicholas of Mason City and Leo Elthon of Fertile, a former lieutenant governor. Dr. W. G. Murray. Iowa State College professor, is "seriously considering" running for governor. Iowa House Speaker W. L. Mooty of Grundy Center hasn't decided whether to go for governor or lieutenant governor. Sen. Jack Miller of Sioux City is reported to be mulling over the same question a-) is Mooty. Those in the mention stage include Atty. Gen. Norman Erbe and Highway Commissioners Russell Lundy of Des Moines and Robert K. Beck of Centerville. At the recent Clear Lake Governor's Days political gabfest, so many names were mentioned as possibilities for the GOP nomination for governor that Republicans began to make c joke of it. One would say to another, "If you're not a candidate for governor, you're the only one who isn't." It is being pointed out in GOP circles that if both Nicholas and Elthon toss their hats in the ring, it leaves a good opening for someone from southern Iowa. Nicholas and Elthon both are from north Iowa, and might be figured to hurt each other's chances for votes. The last two Republican governors—the late William S. Beardsley and Leo A. Hoegh—were from southern Iowa. Needs 3S% Also on the point of a possible multiple race for the GOP nomination for governor, one of the candidates must get 35 per cent of the vote to win the nomination outright. Otherwise, the selection is left to the party's state convention. In 1954, there were six candidates for the Republican gubernatorial choice. Hoegh won the 35 per cent and went on to win his first and only term as chief executive. Loveless beat him in 1956. In the 6th District, two Republicans have announced their candidacies for the congressional nomination. They are Sen. Jacob Grimstead of Lake Mills and Rep. Curtis G. Riehm of Garner. This raoe also could become more crowded. Listed as likely to join in the contest is Sen. John Walker of Williams. Others being talked of as possibilities are Dudley Weible of Forest City and Robert Waggoner of Fort Dodge. Weible is a former Iowa American Legion commander. Waggoner is administrative assistant to U.S. Sen. Thomas E. Martin, Iowa City Republican. Politics from olher parts of the state includes the report that there may be an attempt to defeat Congressman H. R. Gross, Waterloo Republican, if he seeks renomina- tion. The same prospect was talked before the 1956 primary, but it fizzled. Will Seek Renomlnation Meanwhile, the Democrats say there is no doubt that Loveless will seek renomination and get it without opposition. The Democrats want to retain their foot-hold and expand it to other congressional seats, the Statehouse, and make another increase in their member ship in the Legislature. Besides the announcements by Grimstead and Riehm, the Rev. Robert N. D. Yoak of Stuart has said he will be a candidate for the Democratic nomination for Congress from the 7th District. Harold E. Hughes, Ida Grove obtained nomination papers as a candidate for the Democratic nomination for the Commerce Commission. 8 ™ m £"X\£t,'™ Marathon, la., Group Assembles Names- Womens Club Prompts Survey, Gets Action on Multiple Sclerosis Heavy Crop Yields Seen * DES MOINES Iff)— Iowa farmers appear to be in a favorable position this year with a corn crop nearly 41 million bushels greater than a month ago. At the same time output of soybeans is expected to break all records both in the size of the crop and increased acreage over 1956. Heat Hurt Oats The only thing to mar this outlook was the fact that hot July weather was not very good for oats. The crop prospects were reviewed Friday in the government's monthly crop report. The figures released on corn by the Iowa Crop Reporting Service showed that: On the basis of Aug. 1 the estimate is for 57 bushels to the acre, up four bushels from the July 1 forecast; production of 577,239,000 bushels, or about 40Vi million bushels more than a month ago. This compared with 51 bushels an acre in 1956 and 50.6 bushels for the previous 10-year average. The estimates on soybeans were for a new record crop of 54,992,000 bushels which is 25 per cent higher than last year. The current forecast on oats is for 233,552,000 bushels at 44 bushels an acre. While this is 60 per cent higher than last year it is a downward revision from a month ago when a yield of 46 bushels to the acre was expected. Review of Prospect* In reviewing corn prospects the reporting service said: "The condition of the crop has improved in all areas of the state except the south central and southeast districts. The subsoil moisture has been generally adequate in all parts of the state." Hay production was estimated at 7,462,000 tons, a new record compared with 5,793,000 tons last year and the 10-year average of 6,053,000 tons. MOVING UP? . . . Dispatches from Moscow indicate that Russia's famed touring team of *'B and K" may be revised to "K and M," with Deputy Premier AnastBB Mlkoyan. above, replacing Premier Nikolai Bulganin as Communist party boss Nikitn Khrushchev's traveling companion. M i k o y a n accompanied Khrushchev to Romania for talks with Marshal Tito and will go with the party chief to East Germany.

Waverly. DES MOINES (/Pi—To the Tuesday Study Club of Marathon, a Buena Vista town of 565 residents, goes the credit for prompting a statewide survey of multiple sclerosis and a move to do something about it. the Iowa Health Department said Saturday. Dr. Walter L Bierring, former long-time department commissioner and now a division director, said the move was due largely to two women members of the club. 579 Cases Prompted by the club, the health department made a survey of 3,000 Iowa physicians and osteopaths last April. The 1,600 returns showed there are 579 cases of the disease in 85 counties and none in the 14 others. The club has assembled the names and addresses of 470 patients, and is seeking information on others, through its own, independent survey. The club took up the project after a four-county chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society was formed at Marathon last April. The objective of the club is to ! determine the prevalence of the | disease in the state, as a step to- j ward the establishment of a pa' tient care program in Iowa, i "Anyone who ic afflicted with I multiple sclerosis or who knows of | a patient whose case has been di| agnosed as multiple sclerosis is re- j quested to send names and ad' dresses to the Tuesday Study Club, Marathon, Iowa." a spokesman for the organizatiqn said. "These names will not be made public." The club says the disease "is considered by competent medical authority to be the most serious of all diseases of young adults. .." The State Health Department is checking back to determine the form of (he disease in the 579 cases. It is referring its information to the State University of Iowa Hospitals. Rehabilitation Only Hope "The only help is rehabilitation," Dr. Bierring said. "The University | Hospitals have all of the facilities for rehabilitation But they can't enter the care field very much because they can't keep the patients , long. The hospitals are making an j effort to go as far as they can go as state hospitals. They try to teach care at home." The Marathon club said the state has no multiple sclerosis clinic, no nursing home or sanatorium specifically for such cases, and that these patients are not admitted to most hospitals because of the chronic nature of the disease. Dr. Bierring, director of the division of gerantology, heart and chronic diseases, described multiple sclerosis as a disease which affects the central nervous system and eventually causes a paralysis. He said there is ho known cause, preventive or cure; it is not hereditary, nor contagious. Adultery Great Sin of Notion, Billy Tells 14,000 in New York NEW YORK W-Evangelist Billy Graham says adultery is the great sin of the nation. Americans are breaking the Seventh Commandment, he said, "not only by act but by looks, thoughts, reading of obscene magazines, listening to obscene stories and repeating them." "Not just the overt act but the intent will be judged by God," he added. Graham addressed 14,000 persons in Madison Square Garden Friday night in the 77th night of his New York crusade. The evangelist also labeled as sinners "parents who have not set the example for their children, causing their children to become wayward." Several Polish churchmen en route to the World Lutheran Congress in Minneapolis attended the meeting. At Graham's call, 335 persons stepped up to make "decisions for Christ." "Decisions" for the entire crusade total 44,172. Attendance since the start of the crusade May 15 totals 1.460,800. House Votes U.S. Workers 11 Pet Raise WASHINGTON .un — The Houso has given strong approval to an 11 per cent pay raise for the government's one million white col* lar workers. The estimated cost: 530 million dollars annually. . The bill was passed late Friday, 329-58, and sent to the Senate. There it joins another pay bill passed earlier by the House. This bill would give some 518,000 postal workers a $546 annual raise at a cost of about 317 million yearly. But even if both measure* should clear the Senate, there are predictions they might be vetoed. President Eisenhower has said he could not recommend the pay boosts at present because of the increased inflationary pressure ha said they would generate. Rep. Halleck of Indiana, assistant GOP floor leader, predicted the bill passed Friday would be vetoed if it went to Eisenhower in its present form. Halleck said if the raises became law, Congress would have to increase the debt ceiling now at 275 billion dollars. The bill passed Friday would apply to workers paid under the Civil Service Classification Act, and to about 10,000 employes in the legislative and judicial branches.

Hurricane Weakens, Becomes Storm NEW ORLEANS un - Tropical •torm Bertha ended its shortlived, threatened reign of terror along the Gulf Coast today and fizzled inland over eastern Texas. The Weather Bureau's final bulletin on the storm at 4 a.m. (CST) located it about 20 miles northwest of Beaumont, Tex., with highest winds estimated 30 to 40 m.p.h. Bertha was moving northwestward at about 10 m.p.h., the bulletin said and its remains would be in north-central Texas by tonight. There was little threat of appreciable flooding, the Weather Bureau said, although locally heavy showers were likely near the center of the storm and in east Texas. The bulletin said winds and seas •long the Louisiana and Texas coast* would subside today, but ? warned •email craft \o remain in port. ,. Bertha emerged from infancy «od grew into a full-blown hurri- as it rumbled in from the Gulf of Mexico. The southwest Louisiana coast, where hurricane Audrey claimed more than 500 lives in late June, was evacuated in the face of swelling tides and buffeting winds. Heavy rains and locally strong winds were predicted for/the east Texas area as Bertha moved out of the gulf Friday night, The ad- \isory said the storm woud weaken progressively as it moved inland. The area around Cameron, La., devastated when Audrey hit June 27, felt winds of 65 miles an hour, but most of the hardy coastal residents had fled at Bertha's first warnings to Red Cross refuge centers in Lake Charles. Tides of five feet, about four feet above normal, washed the Louisiana coast, but diminished today with the heavy seas also subsiding along the Texas coastline. The Louisiana Highway Department said all roads between Grand Isle and the Texas border were passable, although some, were under a few inches of water in the lowlands of Terrebonne Parish (county). Sheriff O. B. Carter said every family in the immediate Cameron area had been evacuated. He said he ordered everyone to leave Thursday night. Asked if anyone resented the evacuation order, he replied: "No one resented this order, they appreciated the warning, no one had to be told twice to leave " Mrs. Paul Nunez of Grand Chenier reflected the feelings of many when she said her grocer husband wouldn't stay to fight the storm this time. "If they had tied him," she said, "he would have eaten the rope off." Oil crews aboard offshore drilling rigs were among the first to seek shelter on the mainland with about 1,950 workers brought ashore. Some homes at Freeport were evacuated, but most remained with caution the watch- WOJKL • ' The George Washington Brldgp, a giant traffic link between New York and New Jersey.
