But if Knowland becomes a candidate for the Republican nomination for governor and is faced with a campaign fight, some of his colleagues doubt he will want to be tied down in Washington next spring. 60-Day Affair California primary battles usually are a 60-day affair, carried on in April and May before the June test at the polls. This is about the time Congress begins to get busy considering major legislation. If Knowland were forced to campaign against GOP Gov. Goodwin J. Knight he would have little time to spend handling his leadership duties at a critical period. Knight has given no sign he will step out of the way for Knowland. The governor has said he doesn't want to run for the Senate. But a Knowland announcement would be likely to bring a statement from Vice President Nixon that he is supporting the senator. This is on the theory that Knowland would be the stronger candidate and that Nixon feels it is necessary to keep California in Republican hands if the GOP is to win in 1960. Other Backers Sen. Kuchel (R-Calif) and a majority of 'the 17 GOP California congressmen could be expected to line .up behind Knowland also. Faced with any such weighty opposition, some politicians think Knight might find it the better part of political valor to switch to the Senate contest. In Sacramento, Calif., Knight declined to comment. If he faces no major primary battle, Knowland can be expected to continue as Senate GOP leader. There would be no challenge among Senate Republicans. Even if Knowland himself elects to remain as leader and turn the job over to his assistant while he campaigns such an arrangement prob- Knowland ...... See Page 7 The final vote was 43 to 38.

An executive board meeting and preliminary registration will take place Friday followed by regular convention labor leader but "society wouldn't let him." Doria gave the appraisal of Dio in testimony before the Senate | Rackets Investigating Committee. Doria was until last March secretary-treasurer of the Allied Industrial Workers Union, formerly the old AFL United Auto Workers Union. Left Under Pressure Doria left the union under pressure. Questions as to his fitness to hold union office had been raised in the AFL-CIO, partly because of Dona's associations with Dio. There was testimony last week that Doria agreed to resign on condition that the union pay him $80,000 and give him a Cadillac car. He has been paid $25,000 and contends the union still owes him $55,000. Doria said he is now a resident of Encino, Calif., and is helping develop mining properties in Arizona.

Becker, Omaha, was not criminally responsible for the death of Rayj mond C. Murray, 58, Everly, in j a boat accident on West Okoboji Lake Saturday. The jury, after hearing testimony from 12 witnesses, ruled Murray died of a skull fracture and brain concussion . when his boat was rammed by Becker's power boat. The jury also said Becker was operating his boat in violation of law because he was traveling in excess of five miles per hour in an area less than 250 feet from another boat. Recker was not charged and was released by the lake patrol. (According to a report from Okoboji, Dr. A. Reas Anneberg, who is vacationing with his family al Eagle Point, saw the accident from a nearby boat dock and rescued Mrs, Murray who clung to the overturned boat until Dr. Anneberg arrived. She was uninjured.) Several witnesses testified the sun was shining brightly in the west at the time of the mishap, obscuring visibility. Becker traveling west. Mrs. Murray, who was., in the boat with her husband, said she stood up and waved and shouted to Becker: "You are going to run into us." Becker, testifying in his own behalf, said: "There's no use deny- j ing it, 1 just didn't see Murray's i boat." Struck by Dorothy's beauty and simplicity, McKnight wrote of Dorother's plight, that of a lively backwoods girl forced to stop school at 14 because she had no clothes to wear. When McKnight first saw her, Dorothy was dressed in shorts cut from her father's blue jeans and a cotton shirt. She had only one dress which cost $1.50. Her first wish was to complete her education. New Clothes, Opportunity Dorothy now has new clothes, a bank to act as her guardian and the promise of a high school and college education if she desires. The 5-9-inch Dorothy has received offers from modeling agencies, fashion show directors, press agents, baseball teams and a sweater manufacturer. Her simple replies to Questions: caught the public's fancy. She told ! one reporter, "It seems to me most boys are dike. They start right off bothering me and they're I strong and it seems like I always have to end up hitting them. Why are they like that?"

Eight Reasons Public Hearing Scheduled at Courthouse at 10 a.m. Wednesday Petitions bearing the signature* of "several hundred Carroll County taxpayers who object to the proposed annexation and incorporation of their lands into the Storm Creek watershed drainage district" will be filed herp Tuesday. Russell S. Wunschel, attorney for a group of taxpayers, said the petitions will be filed with Auditor Ed Murphy, to be presented to the board of supervisors and the trustees of Drainage District No. 23. He said he would like to see a large turnout of taxpayers at the public hearing scheduled for 10 a.m. Wednesday at the courthouse. The petitions bring filed by Mr. Wunschel cite eight reasons why the landowners believe their lands should not become a part of Drainage District No. 23. The proposed expansion of the drainage district from one-half mile in width on the county line in Kniest township and quarter-mile restricted widths in the southeast portion of the county had been originally proposed by the board of trustees of the district. Survey Made A survey of the territory proposed for the annexation was made by W. G. Otto ot Sac City. Attorneys for the district said the purpose of the annexation and incorporation is to Vspreacr the assessment load over the entire watershed of the district." The proposed annexation of additional property will run the western boundary from three-quarters of a mile eaBt of Breda and thence through Maple River, three-quarters of a mile east of Roselle and southeasterly to the northern pari of Newton township. The proposed eastern boundary follows roughly the current line that starts three miles west of Highway 71 on. the Carroll-Sac county line, proceeds southeasterly through the west part of Lidderdale, then extends south and east through the west part nf Glidden and south to a point a half mile north of the intersection of the north boundary of Union township with the west boundary of Richland township. Objections Listed Objections to the proposal include the following contained in the petitions: 1. That the public welfare, convenience, utilities and benefits would not be promoted by the annexation of their property to said drainage district. 2. That the cost of construction of drainage ditcnes, lateral ditches and improvements in the said drainage district would constitute a greater burden than should be borne by the land benefited In the district proposed to be annexed. 3. That the plans to annex the said lands would be impracticable "as the said lands would receive little or no benefit from said district. 4. That the proposed annexation of the property hereinafter described would be of no special benefit whatsoever except to the lands in the drainage district as the land hereinafter described as complete and adequate drainage facilities. 5. That the only benefits derived from the proposed annexation would be a reduction in assessments to the land now in said drainage facilities which render no benefits to the lands proposed to be annexed. C. That the proceedings In this proposed annexation have not been in accordance with the laws of the State of Iowa and the annexation would be illegal, ultra vires and void for the reasons that proper notice has not been served on the parties affected; that some of the parties named in the publication are not the proper parties and that as a result many of the tracts of land in the proposed area to be annexed would fail to be included and would create a financial bur-, den on the remaining tracts of ; land. ••• of their voyage, they stopped at Trinidad and Barbados in the British West Indies; BaTila, Rio de Janeiro, and Santos, Brazil; and Montevideo, Uruguay.
