Jobs Picture In 4 Counties Encouraging While initial claims for unemployment benefits Were down about 66 per cent last month compared with a year ago, continued claims showed an increase of approximately 30 per cent in the four-county area served by the Carroll office of the State Employment Service, John W. Cosens, manager, reported Tuesday. Partial Operations Mr. Cosens said that the chief reason for the rise in continued claims was that three food processing plants of the area have been operating on a partial basis. Figures cited were for the month of July. Initial claims for July this year were 21 compared to 63 last year or a drop of about 66 per cent. A drop also was indicated in initial claims during July, 4957, compared with the preceding month of, June. The figures were 21 initial claims in July and 35 in June or a decrease of approximately 40 per cent. Continued claims in July, 1957, were 422 compared with 577 for the preceding month, or a decrease of 27 per cent, but comparisons with last year revealed a different story. The number of continued claims in July, 1956, was 317 compared with this year's 422 or a gain of approximately 30 per cent. Many Placement* The employment picture on the whole is encouraging, Mr, Cosens said. There were 54 placements during July in non-agricultural jobs and 990 (including corn de lasselers) in agricultural work. There are several openings for married farm hands in the office at the present time. Mr. Cosens advised all persons looking for jobs, whether agricultural or nonagricultural, to place their names on' file and efforts will be made to help them in finding work.

Negro Family Moves Into White Section Under Guard LEVITTOWN, Pa. IB-A Negro family moved into this all-white community under police protection Monday. Some residents greeted his arrival with jeers and stone throwing. "All I want to do is to be a good neighbor and 1 hope others do the same," said William J. Myers, 24, in his new ranch-style home. Monday night, 42 state policemen were busy keeping some 250 protesting neighbors in this | sprawling development of 15,000 homes pushed back two blocks from Myers' home. Man Arrested Rocks were hurled and a trooper and a news photographer were struck. One man was arrested on a charge of disorderly conduct. State Police Lt. J. M. Wicker shouted over a loud-speaker: "You have struck one of my men. I will not tolerate this. 1 give you 10 minutes to get back to your homes." Twenty-two troopers lined up with riot sticks and forced the crowd back. The sticks were used on one resident who Wicker said was cursing officers and resisting the police line. He was identified as Donald Walker, 34, a truck driver, of Levittown, who was fined $10 after pleading guilty to a charge of disorderly conduct. By midnight, all but a handful of the crowd had returned to their modernistic, low-slung houses. The police force was cut to four troopers guarding the Myers home. All was quiet at the house in where Myers moved in with his wife Daisie, 32, and one of their three children. Two other children are staying at the home of relatives. „ At a news conference, Myers said, "I don't believe. the demonstrations that have been held present a true picture of the feelings of the people of Levittown. Ail people are good of heart. "I expected there might be some 1 trouble when we bought this place. but I didn't think there would be so much." College Educated The college-educated Negro told reporters he paid $12,150 for his home, buying it from previous owners who had rented out the house for some time. He declined to say what his income is as a refrigeration mechanic in nearby Trenton, N.J. Myers emphasized that the purchase of the house was his own decision and that he has had no backing, financial or otherwise, from any group or organization. Bomb Score At Ft. Dodge FORT DODGE (At—A downtown department store was cleared by police Monday night after officers teceived a telephone call that a bdmb was set to go off at 8:30 p.m. Police said later they believed the call was the work of a crank. Police Lt. Hugo Sandahl received the call at 8:01 from a man who said: "I have just placed a bomb in the Boston Store to go off at 8:30. I will kill those sinners." Then the man hung up. A police detail cleared out the six-story building, open for shopping until 9 p.m. on Mondays. Officers, conducting a floor-by- floor search, uncovered no explosives. Barricades were set up around the block to keep spectators away in the event of an explosion. Thompson Is New Chief of Iowa Bureau DES MOINES 1/rV-Special Agent Tillman Thompson, 48, has been appointed chief of the Iowa Bureau of Criminal Investigation to succeed R. W. (Doc) Nebergall who has retired. Thomspon, who will assume his new duties Friday, will receive $6,600 a year. The appointment was announced Monday by State Safety Commissioner Russell I.. Brown, who also named Robert D. Blair as assistant chief, succeeding Gtfford Strand, and reappointed Leonard Murray as supervisor of the division's technical services. "These appointments are made to give division leadership the best combination of experience and training available and as a means of expanding the service of the division to the people of Iowa," Brown said. ' Combination. Delegation "This combination of authority and delegation of responsibility in the division is necessary to serve efficiently the increased demands for division services," he added. Brown said the combined experience of the three men in law enforcement and criminal investigation totals 53 years. In recent months there have been repeated reports of dissen- tion within the bureau during Nebergall's administration. Nebergall, who had, headed the bureau since 1939, passed the 65 mandatory retirement age last September but had been serving under extensions granted by the Iowa Executive Council, Thompson, born and reared in Eagle Grove, attended Eagle Grove Junior College and Drake University. He has been a special agent for 17 years. Thompson's duties will be "administration of the division, delegation of authority and widespread contact with peace officers and the general public to determine the needs and priorities for the division," Brown said. Blair, a former Federal Bureau of Investigation worker, has been a special agent of the bureau for nine years. He was born in Irwin and is a graduate of Iowa State College. Available at ASC Offi Com Loan Rate is $130 The government price • support rate for corn produced in Carroll County in 1957 in compliance with corn allotments will be $1.30 per bushel, it was announced this week by William D. Meshek, manager of the county ASC office. County-by-county rates for 1957 compliance corn will range in Iowa from $1,27 to $1.35 per bushel. These rates are based on a I national average of $1.36 per bushel or 77 per cent of parity for the commercial producing area, which includes all of Iowa.' U.S. Average $1.50 The national average for 1956 compliance corn in the commercial area was $1.50 per bushel, or 86.2 per cent of parity. Iowa rates for 1956 compliance corn ' ranged by counties from $1.41 to $1.50 per bushel, and the rate in Carroll Draft Chairman Warns Young Men On Registering at 18 "Ignorance of the law is no excuse," "That is one statement everyone has heard and it most certainly applies to every young man in Carroll County who reaches the age of 18 and fails to register with the Selective Service Local Board as required by the Universal Military Training and Service Act, as amended," George Lucey, chairman of the Carroll County Selective Service Local Board, said Tuesday. "The fact that a young man is a member of the National Guard or Organized Reserve does not excuse him from his obligation to register with Selective Service. National Guard and Reserve Officers are charged with the responsibility of reminding the members of their units, as they reach age 18, of their duty to report to the local board office for registration," he said, "Yet there are those who put it off and become delinquents reportable to the United States attorney for prosecution. The law makes no distinction between an outright failure to register and a late registration when it provides for a fine of $10,000 or five years in prison, or both, for a violation of the provisions of the Act." The Carroll County Local Board is located above Matt Hardware, 516V» North Adams Street. Irene Smith is clerk of the board and on duty Mondays: 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays: 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. to answer all questions concerning Selective Service, military obligation and related subjects, and to register every young man as required by law. TimM Herald, Carroll, Iowa Tuesday, Aug. 20, 1957 County was $1.44 per bushel. In 1956, non-compliance corn was supported at 25 cents per bushel less than compliance corn, but no provision has been made for supporting non - compliance 1957-crop corn. Loans and purchase agreements on eligible 1957 corn will be available from the time of harvest until next' May 31 and they will mature next July 31. Applications nuist be filed with the county ASC office serving the county in which the corn is produced. To qualify for the regular support rate, the corn must, except for moisture content, grade at least No. 3, or No. 4 on the factor of test weight only. For the first time, a one-cent per bushel premium will be allowed for 1957 corn of any acceptable grade containing 2 per cent or less cracked corn and foreign material. In addition, a one-cent per bushel pre­ mium will be granted for corn grading No. 2 or better, the same as in past years. Also as in past years, there will be discounts for excessive moisture.

EARLY NAVIGATION Navigators had no reliable way of determining longitude until an accurate seagoing clock, or chronometer, was perfected in England in 1735.

WARMER WINTERS? The earth's orbit is such that the sun is 3,000,000 miles closer in January than in July and winter would be warmer than summer if the sun's rays did not strike the Northern Hemisphere more obliquely at that time.
