Breakthrough by Army NEW YORK </PV-The New York Herald Tribune said Friday the Army has scored a major technological breakthrough in long-range ballistic missile development with the first conquest of the "re-entry" problem. A Washington dispatch to the; newspaper also said: » i "That problem has centered on fabrication of a material which would survive the friction heat generated by a long-range missile in its roaring ascent to,heights of over 600 miles and its gravity- tugged descent to earth at speeds estimated at 15,000 miles an hour." The heat caused by friction on materials traveling at the velocity has been thought to be destructive, the story noted. Nose Cone Returns The Herald Tribune said it learned Thursday that the major breakthrough was achieved last week when the Army fired a Jupiter intermediate-range ballistic missile and succeeded in bringing back to earth intact the missile's nose cone. "That means," the story continued, "the Army has fabricated a material which will withstand the fantastic heat caused by friction with air as the missile vaults beyond the atmosphere and then plunges back to earth."

A total of 453 boys and girls were registered and at least 44 others are expected to enroll making a final total of 497. At St. Joseph School, 170 boys and girls were registered, but several others were away on vacations or otherwise unable to report. The final enrollment is estimated at about 180. SS. Peter and Paul School, with an estimated enrollment of 440, will hold registration after masses at 6, 8, 9:30 and 11 a.m. Sunday, August 25. Facully Complete The St. Lawrence faculty is now complete with an extra teacher in second and third grades. She is Sr. M. Celsa who has been transferred to the Carroll school from Bellevue. . Sr. M. Romaine, teacher of music at St. Lawrence for the past six years, has been assigned to Wisconsin Rapids, Wis., where she will organize the music program for a new school. She will be re- ...mic or Mrog,„ c«n j g^J&J^ — be encased in that material and fired through the atmosphere with the certainty that it will return to the earth's surface without disintegrating because of friction heat. First Solution A* far as is known in Washington, it was said, the Army's success last week marks the first time that the ballistic missile "reentry" problem has been solved. The Army's jupiter fired last week from Patrick Air Force Base in Florida was reported to have reached an altitude of about 600 miles, traveled about 1,200 miles and reached a speed estimated at 15,000 miles an hour on its plunge back to earth. Ask New Kuemper Student's to Register New students who have moved to the Carroll area since last spring and others who expect to enter Kuemper High School for the first time this year are asked to register at the school office Sunday between the hours of 9 to 11:30 a.m. and 2 to '4 p.m. BOY, 16, BURNED Thomas McLaughlin, 16, son of Mr. and Mrs. Anderson A.

Farm Bureau Picnic Draws Nearly 500 Nearly 500 members of Farm Bureau families came from all parts of the county to watch or take part in games and contests at the annual Farm Bureau picnic in Graham Park, Thursday. The award for the oldest member present was won by John Staiert, 75, of Route 3, Carroll, and the prize for the largest family again went to the Clem Klockes of Dedham with 15 children and grandchildren. Thomsen Emcee James Thomsen, county Farm Bureau fieldman, acted as master of ceremonies and music during the picnic dinner at noon was provided by the Dedham accordion band. Festivities began in the morning with a 4-H softball tournament under the direction of W. R. Millender, assistant county extension director, with six teams participating. Winners were the Dedham Rough Riders with the Roselle Rustlers in second place. In the adult solftball game played after dinner the Board of Directors All-Stars defeated an RYP team by a close 3 to 2.

Board Salesmen's Smoker, 'B-E' Day; Rural-Urban Dinner, Eland Festival Four projects for the near future were announced by the Chamber of Commerce, Friday, following approval by the board of directors at their August meeting. A "Traveling Men's Appreciation Day" was proposed by the Finance, Utilities, Transportation and Industrial Bureau and approved by the board. Howard Bockhaus was named to head the committee in charge of arrangements. Saturday Smoker Plans call for traveling men who make their home in Carroll to be guests of the Chamber at a Saturday afternoon and evening smoker at the Carroll Country Club some Saturday in the near future. It was pointed out that many of these men are not affiliated with any company that has a store or warehouse in this city but that the dozens of men who have selected Carroll as their home in themselves are equivalent to a sizeable industry. Chamber members will be asked to invite members of this group to be their guests for the day. The fact that most of the traveling men are on the road during the week was the principal reason why Saturday was suggested as a convenient day for the get-to-gether. Also approved, subject to working out details wivh public and parochial school officials, was a '"B-E Day." The idea is that a day will be set aside when teachers will visit local business firms — probably two per firm — and spend the day observing how these businesses conduct their daily affairs. B-E days have been successful for several years in other cities. In some places. E-B day. when business men pay return visits to city schools, are arranged later in the year. Town, Country Dinner A Town and Country Dinner at some future date was proposed and approved. A member of the Hotel, Motel and Restaurant Bureau will be in charge. The exact date of the event has not been set. Plans have been resumed for the Carroll Band Festival which will; be held this fall. Dates suggested I were the last Saturday in September or the first in October. The original plan was to hold a festival last May but because of conflicts with proms, junior-senior banquets and' other school events at was postponed until fall at the suggestion of school officials. A considerable amount of money was raised last April by the Harlem Globetrotters basketball game to help finance the festival. Since then another $360 has been added from the carnival sponsored by the Chamber early this summer. 3 HOSPITALIZED AFTER INTERSECTION CRASH . . . Cars shown here were in collision at a county road intersection three miles east and one south of Carroll, or two miles south of the Drive-In theater and one mile west of the airport road. The accident occurred about 7:30 p.m. Thursday. Five persons riding In the car driven by John B. Danner, 60, of Carroll, shown overturned, were brought to St. Anthony Hospital for treatment of injuries. Driver of other vehicle, shown with smashed front end, was Richard A. Clay, 26, or Dakota Ctty. The Danner .> cur was westbound and the Clay car was.north­ bound, the sheriff's office reported. Harold Danner, 15, and David Danner, 6, and John Danner all were hospitalized. (Photos by Al Thorup) Controversial Power, Ag Nominees Are Confirmed WASHINGTON WV-Two controversial nominees of President Eisenhower %ere. confirmed by the Senate Thursday night despite vigorous Democratic opposition. By a 50-25 vote, the Senate approved the reappointment of Jerome K. .Kuykendall to the Federal Power Commission. Eisenhower is expected to rename him chairman of the agency. A few hours later, a 42-32 vote confirmed the nomination of Don Paarlberg as assistant secretary of agriculture. Underlying Defending Kuykendall from these charges, Republican senators said his foes were trying to use him as a whipping boy because they have been unable to put across such federal power projects as the Hells Canyon Dam. Errors Shown In County Audit* The annual state audit of Carroll County was filed with the office of County Auditor Ed Murphy Friday. The audit was made by Leonard Mogren, of Centerville, and was submitted to Chet B. Akers, state auditor, it noted numerous bookkeeping and clerical errors and included recommendations for correction. The audit directed the attention of the county board of supervisors, county board of education and county conference board to expenditures in excess of the adopted budget. The board of supervisors was reported to have exceeded budget figures on the general county fund, secondary road construction and secondary road maintenance. Blast Burns Couple Critically IOWA CITY WV-A young West Liberty farm couple were hospitalized in critical condition here Friday with burn-: suffered Thursday night when an explosion rocked their home. Dale Windus, 21, suffered burns over 45 per cent of his body and his wife, Shirley, 18, suffered Hodge Feels Punishment Is Too Much By CHARLES WHALEN CHESTER, . 111. m — Orville Hodge took a' long look back today on his first year in prison and observed plaintively, "I've been punished enough." "This year has seemed like 10 years," said Hodge, choking back the tears. "There's only one thing 1 think about in here—getting out. It's been awful and spmetimes I get so lonesome." The once flambuoyant Illinois state auditpr shook his head and said, "I still don't know what happened" in the mammoth state check cashing swindle which crashed down on him and sent him to Menard Penitentiary for 12 to 15 years. "I'm not blaming anyone for my troubles," he added. Hodge won't be eligible for parole consideration for another six years and three months, leaving executive clemency as the only avenue to freedom before that time. He said, however, he has seriously considered asking the governor for leniency. Hodge holds a $7.50-a-month job running the prison's radio system, preparing and showing films, and recording a weekly radio program put on by the inmates. In disk jockey fashion, he also spins records to meet requests of the 2,300 convicts. Occasionally, he has done some announcing al prison ball games. Adjustment Hard Adjustment to prison routine has come hard for the luxury- living Hodge, but he said he began to acquire a new putlook on life after receiving his present assignment 11 weeks ago. "Before that, i though I'd go crazy," he said. "Jf it hadn't been for the Catholic chaplain, I believe I would have gone out of Hodges ... . .See Page 4 John Danner Injured Fatally In 2-Car Crash Carroll county's third 1957 traf- ; airport and the road south of the fic fatality was recorded at 12:15 * drive-in theater. Rayburn Sees Good Chance Bill Will Pass Republicans Believed About to Abandon 'Allor-Nothing' Stand WASHINGTON m . — The House Friday moved toward a break in the deadlock over the civil rights bill and Speaker Rayburn (D-Tex) predicted House passage of the legislation before Congress adjourns. That probably would clear the way for adjournment this month. Republican Leader Martin. (Mass) announced after a strategy session of GOP leaders that "we are open minded" about the form the disputed measure takes. "We want a workable bill as quickly as possible," he said. Ready Next Week With Republicans believed about, ready to stage a strategic retreat from their all-or-nothing stand, the House Rules Committee was reported ready to take up the matter early next week. The Rules Committee thus far has been blocking House action. But with 4 Republican members and 4 Northern Democrats voting together on the 12-member committee, the bill could be sent to the floor. But Martin signified that the Republicans will not accept without a contest a modification of the bill that is being proposed by House i Democrats. That could mean the Democrats will have to give in some or there could still be no bill this session of Congress. After the House originally passed I the bill, the Senate added a disputed jury trial amendment with broad application. Rep. Celler (D- NY) is pushing for House accep- j tance of the Senate bill .with the | jury trial amendment narrowed down just to cover voting rights cases. The Democrats say the Senate would go along with that bat nothing more, Rayburn told newsmen he did not know exactly what kind of compromise has been worked out. There were signs, however, that Republicans and Democrats had reached an agreement on a bill containing a modified jury trial imendment. In the debate on the Paarlberg j burns on 85 per cent of her body, nomination, his opponents called him "the architect of the economic policies" of the Agriculture Department.

The explosion, believed to have been caused by escaping bottled gas, bulged the walls of the two- story seven-room frame home and blew out windows. Windus and his wife drove to the farm home of bis father, Martin Windus, about a mile away, where a physician and ambulance were summoned. ' Windus indicated he was attempting to light a water'heater in the basement when the explosion occurred. Anton Muellers Buy New Audubon Home Anton Mueller, who has been employed in the construction department of the Iowa Public Service Company here, will begin work Sept. 1 as serviceman for the IPS in the city of Audubon. Mr. and Mrs. Mueller have bought a home in Audubon Heights. Mrs. Mueller is the'former Barbara Raridon. Mr. Mueller, a sergeant in the U, S. Army Reserve, is leaving Sunday for two weeks' summer camp at Camp McCoy, Wis. Mrs,- MueUer is staying here until his return.

Richard A. Clay, 26, of Dakota City, was not injured, investigating officers said. The collision, occurred when the westbound Danr.(-r car and the northbound Clay car met on the intersection of the road west of the Both vehicles were described as total losses, the sheriff's office said. 360 Night Speed Violations in July DES MOINES im— Highway Patrolmen stopped 360 drivers in July for violating the state's 60-mile-an- hour nighttime speed limit, Maj. James Machholz, assistant patrol chief, said Friday. Machholz said 200 of 'he drivers were given summonses to appear in court and 160 received warning tickets. "A considerable number of the speeders stopped in July were teen-agers," Machholz commented. But he said the compliance with Ihe new law in the first month of its operation was "generally good" anl that nighttime traffic in Iowa is moving at a "more reasonable and proper pace." BREAKS ARM Mark McKinney son of Mr. and Mrs. B. V. McKinney of Northridge, Calif., suffered a broken left forearm Thursday evening when he fell from a stone wall playing. Mrs. McKinney is the former Phyllis McConkie. Mark is nearly four years old. He was taken to St. Anthony Hospital, expecting to be released ! Friday. Cut Manpower to Offset Rising Cost of Armaments WASHINGTON MV-Current military planning calls for further manpower cuts to offset the rising cost of weapons. Secretary of Defense Wilson told his news conference Thursday a force of 2\it million men, 300,000 below the present level, is a possibility by July 1959. He called that a minimum planning figure. But he said limited drafting of men will have to be continued to maintain a force of that size. Wilson, resigning the post he has held for 4 l ? years, will be succeeded in October by Neil H. McElroy, Procter & Gamble Co. president. " Wilson left no doubt that he is advising his successor that because of the rising cost trend of military hardware, defense plan­ ners must look to manpower as the only major field in which money can be saved. He has already ordered the ser- 1 vices to trim 100,000 men from I their military payrolls by the end i ol this calendar year. He also has ordered cuts in the civilian payroll of the armed services and taken other actions to slow the spending rate in a wide range of military fields. But Wilson said Thursday that the economy campaign as it affects new missiles, aircraft and weapons has been carried about as far as it can go for the time being. In this connection the defense boss stressed his belief that military manpower levels will continue to drop and that this can be done without substantially weakening Ihe total national defense Rayburn said he expects the. Rules Committee to clear the bill soon for House action and added that the bill will get top priority. • Key GOP figures in the House put off a strategy session amid talk the Republicans were making a strategic retreat from an'all-or- nothing stand for the kind of measure President Eisenhower has asked. The meeting was tentatively re-, set for Friday afternoon — which could mean the participants wanted time to work out last details on an agreement. Shortly afterward Rep. Leo Allen of Illinois, senior Republican on the Rules Committee and one of the strategists, said differences blocking House action appeared pretty well ironed out. The measure has been stymied in the Rules' Committee. 702 Tornadoes So For in '57; a Record KANSAS CITY Wl-The Weather Bureau says it counted 702 tornadoes across the country in the first half of 1957 and that sets a new record. The twisters killed 130. The worst one hit the Kansas City area May 20, killing 33 in the suburbs and 7 others in nearby Kansas. Texas led with 162 twisters. Oklahoma had 97, Kansas 50 and Nebraska 47. < The previous record for the firsts half of the year was in 1955, wlth v 654. The Weathet Bureau said intensified efforts to spot and report tornadoes may account partly for the higher 1957 figure. If You Don't Hav« Your Paper by 6 p. m.
