But Republicans held aloof in hopes of getting a measure closer to President Eisenhower's program. Four Democrats on the 12-mem- j ber rules group planned to pre^ past year. Special education deals with the training of handicapped or unusually gifted children.

Police issued this warning: 'Don't take that kris out of; the scabbard. The blade is poisoned. Just touching it to any open wound could be fatal." The seventh century dagger, witht an ivory handle and gold- covered teakwood scabbard, valued at $3,000, was stolen Saturday night from the Riverdale apartment of Koesmartono Pra- wotoadikoesoemo. He is deputy chief of the supply mission attached to the Indonesian consul general's office. The 42-year-old official returned with his wife and two children from a visit to New Canaan, Conn, about 11 p.m. Saturday to find the dagger and about $6.70 in coins missing. He said the kris had been in his family for generations and is passed on from father to son. The official said it is considered sacred and capable of warding off ly opposed to civil rights legislation, the Northern .Democrats needed the help of at least three of the four GOP members of the, committee to force the bill to the House floor for action. ' But for the moment at least, the Republicans were reported withholding support. GOP strategy reportedly was to utilize the Republican balance of power on the committee to seek concessions from the Northern Democrats who want the House to accept the Senate, civil rights bill with a jury trial' amendment narrowed to voting rights cases. The House originally passed a bill that conformed generally to Eisenhower administration proposals. It would give the attorney general authority to seek federal court injunctions against violations of civil rights in general. Persons violating such injunctions Millions In State Pension Benefits DES MOINES W — Nearly 13M. million dollar's in benefits- have been paid out under the Iowa Public Employe Pension System in the first 10 years of its operation, the Iowa Employment Security Commission said Monday. _ In June of this year7 11,153 persons received benefits amounting to $305,854, or an average of about I $27. In the first month benefits were paid, in July of 1947, there were 100 persons who received $2,864, or an average of about. $28. *The system was revised effective July 1, 1953. The original plan provided a state retirement system only. The revised one coupled a state plan with federal social security. In the last month of the old system, June of 1953, there were 6,539 persons who received a total of $238,555. In June of this year, those who continued to qualify under the original system totaled 6,- Community Split Into 2 Factions by Race Issue Tlmaa Herald, Carrel!, lews Monday, Aug! 19, 1957. could be jailed by a judge for! 439 and lhev were P flid $233,285 contempt and there would be no jury trial. Senate Division The Senate stripped from the bill the general civil rights authority and limited the injunction provision to voting rights cases. Then it wrote in a requirement that jury trials must be granted in most criminal contempt cases. This requirement would apply not only to voting rights cases but to a wide range of cases having nothing to do with civil rights. The Eisenhower administration is strongly opposed to this jury trial provision in criminal contempt cases, claiming it would hinder judges in enforcement of their orders and hamper federal regulatory agencies. • Soles Tax(Continued from Page 1) evil spirits from the rightful own- promotional ideas that will keep ffttMil*. fVIA fkA/tnta r\f title itMn ' inUHn/.i N J er's family.

Marvin B. .Wittry On Scholastic List SAN LTJIS OBISPO, Calif. Marvin B. Wittry, son of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph N. Wittry, 215 N. Court St., Carroll, and an electronics engineering major, has been named to the_ President's -scholastic accomplishment list for 1956-57 school year at California State Polytechnic College. President Julian A. McPhee, in announcing the list, says that students named received an average grade of "B" or better in all courses taken during the year. Approximately 360 students were honored. the people of this area interested in coming to Carroll to shop. This is a situation where we need team work and we want as many business and professional men as possible to have coffee with us tomorrow morning." Storm Lake, Spencer Down In checking the quarterly report issued by the State Tax Commission in Des Moines, Chamber officials noted that although Carroll did not exceed Storm Lake as it has for the past two quarters in sales taxes collected. Storm Lake sales fell off while Carroll showed a large-gain in sales for the first quarter. Likewise with Spencer, although Carroll sales have never exceeded Spencer, sales tax returns for the Clay County town were down $jl,438.50 in the face of the $6,352.51 rise for Carroll. Spencer and Storm Lake were the only two cities in the 6,000 to 12,000 population group to - exceed Carroll in sales tax collected. J. C. Blodgett, former member of the commission and now chief of the pension division, said the reductions in both persons qualifying and the amount paid out under the old system were due to three factors, primarily. They are deaths of beneficiaries, disqualifications of widows who remarried, and children reaching age 18. As of last July 1. there was $67,229,678 in the fund from which benefits are paid Receipts for the fund amount to about $15,140,000 a year, and disbursements are about $3,890,000 annually. This leaves about $11,250,000 a year for investment. The source oi* this revenue is contributions by public' employes and employers. The employe and the employer each contribute 3 per cent of the employe's annual income up to $4,000. With certain exceptions, covered employes are those working for the state, counties, municipalities and school districts. They total about 80,000 persons. LEVITTOWN, Pa. <*wMany of! the 60,000 inhabitants nf this sprawling residential development were banded into two factions Monday because of some new neighbors*-* Negro family. The groups have their names and their leaders. They both profess a desire to be lawabidlng and avoid violence. One organization — called the Levittown Betterment Committee —is in direct and definite opposition to the plans of William J. Myers, 32, and his wife and three children to move into an $11,000 home here, The committee, headed by James Newell, says Myers should stay out for his own good and for the good of Levittown. Newell has conducted mass meetings to back up this contention. The other group — called the Citizens' Committee for Levittown—stresses a more conservative approach. Us leader, the Rev. Ray L. Harwick, a Protestant minister, deplored the actions of some of its- citizens and condemned what he called "racial bias." Rev. Harwick said some members of his group are opposed to the Myers' moving into this all- white -community, white - others would welcome the Negro family as neighbors. Harwick says: "One purpose of our group is to show there are' plenty of peopl* Who don't get panicky in a situation like this, who believe the situation can be worked out calmly, intelligently and legally without anyone compromising his beliefs or getting hurt in the pocketbook." Newell says: "Our purpose in 'continuing our organization is to devise peaceful means of accomplishing the purpose of restoring our entire white community. One of the means to be considered is supplying Myers with sufficient funds to enable them to buy an even better home in a location such as Concord Garden Homes, which is devised for integration of Negro and white." Myers, a college-educated refrigeration engineer, hasn't moved in to his house in this vast development of new low and medium priced houses on the outskirts of metropolitan Philadelphia. Since it has been known he has bought here, mobs of up to 500 have congregated in front of the house.

Foreign Aid(Continued trom Page 1) Dynamite in River Linked to Iowa Blasts PLATTSMOUTH, Neb. <# - A partially filled case of dynamite, possibly linked with the blasting of two "earth moving machines at Council Bluffs, Iowa, was fished from the Missouri River Sunday. Cass County Sheriff Tom Solomon said the dynamite was found by Merle Sergeant and Fay Stoddard, both Pacific Junction. Iowa. They were in a boat and noticed the case floating in the channel near the Iowa shore three miles south of here. * The dynamite was not soaked, the sheriff said, adding: "It probably was tossed into the river Saturday night or early Sunday, probably because of the investigation in Council Bluffs." Solomon said the case, with 20 oi 30 sticks gone, was one of two stolen from a> quarry near Plattsmouth before the Council Bluffs blast. Each case had contained 110 sticks. / In Council Bluffs, Investigation of the bombing of the two machines, both used in connection with, work on the Federal Interstate Highway, continued. An agent of the Iowa Bureau of Investigation joined Council Bluffs authorities in probing the bombing. Flight- (Continued from Page 1) Hagerty said dealt primarily with the foreign aid question. Any increase voted by the Senate would have to go back to the House for its consideration. Eisenhower frequently meets alone with Republican congressional leaders, but rarely confers alone with Democratic leaders. Radford's statement to the senators, as made public by the committee, stressed that this country would have to spend a great deal more on its own armed forces if there is a major cutback in help to allied forces. 'Radford said that U. S. defense strategy depends on Allied forces „ „. v ,.„ „ and bases around the world.

The pressurized gondola, seven feet high and three feet in diameter—was equipped with a myriad of instruments to record Maj. Simons' physical reactions during the flight and to collect other scientific data. Maj. Simons' trip to the top of the atmosphere underwent a preliminary test June 2 when another Air Force officer traveled to 96,000 feet in the same gondola. Maj. Simons' flight will fall short of the altitude record. Capt. said, the cost to this country would be staggering in American soldiers and money. Major Effort It would require a major mo Bell 2 rocket plane. Observers at Scene Among observers on the scene Monday was Col. John T. Stapp, experiments. He said the flight nals Mr. and Mrs. Bob Sporleder and daughters, Kristy Lou and Sandy Sue, are back fr6m a two-week trip to Indianapolis, Ind., where they visited Mr. Sporleder's brother-in-law and sister, Mr. and Mrs. Ted Hoemann, and family, "Mrs. Sporleder's uncle, Arthur« Brown, and his son-in-law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Ben Heffington, and family.

The alternative, he said, would be to adopt a "Fortress America concept" which would merely mean that we postponed "an ultimate and violent showdown wkh international communism, or, in the long run, would capitulate." Dulles argued that the House cuts would bring into question the dependability of United States policies, and that the free world might then be disinclined to follow this country'. 1 ! leadership. Referring to thn House cut from 900 million dollars to 621 million in defense economic supports, Dulles said over 60u million is needed in Korea, Free China, Viet Nam, Pakistan and Turkey to support the 2,100,000 men they now have under arms. Noting that all five lie along the Sino-Soviet border, he said it is the considered judgment of all in authority that the House cuts would make it impossible to maintain the strength necessary to defend them. Similarly, Hollister said the cuts in defense supports would force Korea, Turkey, Formosa, Pakistan and Viet Nam to reduce their defense forces or let their economies undergo dangerous setbacks. Mr. and Mrs. J. Howard McEI- hinney and children, Carol and Gene, returned Sunday from Teton National Park, Wyo., where Mr. McElhinney served as a park ranger during the summer vacation.
