Writer) DES MOINES - It is estimated that by 1966-67 there will be three students in Iowa high schools for every two students who enrolled during 1954-55. Naturally, upon graduation from high school a large /number of these youths will be entering colleges in Iowa. Iowa college enrollment is expected to be approximately 72,000 by 1970, or nearly double the 1955 enrollment. Educators believe that between 30-35 per cent of the college age population will be enrolled in college by 1970. The big question is whether or not Iowa will be prepared for this landslide enrollment. May Have to Restrict One college president suggests it may be necessary to restrict enrollments. • "At the "present time the space problem on our campus is critical," James H. Hilton, president of Iowa State College. Ames, said.

Fire Chief Allen Ploen said the fire broke out in Madsen's Bowling Alley and spread to the Kahler Implement Co. warehouse, the post office and to Church's Mar-, ket. All four buildings burned to the ground. Firemen from Shelby, Avoca, Neola and Persia aided in preventing further spread of the flames. It was morning before the fire was finally extinguished. Cause of the fire had not been determined. Assistance of the state fire marshal's office in investigating the blaze was being, provided. All records and equipment in the i post office were lost.

Built Temporary Buildings "In 1948 the University enrollment was just, under 11,000. A number of temporary buildings were constructed at that time to; meet this rising enrollment and these buildings are still being used. Our anticipated enrollment for 1970 is 15,000 to 16,000 students," Stuit stated. Student enrollment at I o wa State Teachers, Cedar Falls, last fall was 3,200. J. W. Maucker, Weber . . . . . . .

Rapids Man Shot Fatally by Policeman CEDAR RAPIDS tfi — Dorance McEnany, 33, of Cedar Rapids was j fatally shot Tuesday night by a I policeman who said he was only trying to scare the fleeing McEn-j any into slopping. An inquest was called into the death. Patrolman Marion Reed described the incident as follows: Reed was patrolling his downtown beat when he came upon a man he thought was McEnany. McEnany was wanted for questioning in connection with a check case. The man had no identification on him but suggested that Reed go with him to his hotel where he would produce papers to establish his identity cies caused by death, retirement or resignation without specific and"! prior approval. j They have been told too to cut i spending by as much as a billion dollars below the $71,800,000,000 proposed for this year by President Eisenhower in his budget message to Congress. And the aim i? to hold next year's spending at or below the level of this year. Mean Business ' A top administration adviser said today, "We've had these things before, but this time we really mean business. There is far loo much fat, everywhere in the government. We're going to cut, Cut, cut." This jibed with an opinion expressed Tuesday by Sen. Byrd ID-Va), long-time economy advocate who was sharply critical in January when Eisenhower proposed a record peacetime spending budget.. Byrd said he sees signs that the administration is making an earnest effort to cut federal spending, and he added: "If this trend continues, I believe we can look forward to a reduced budget next year instead of the increased spending that the administration previously planned." The administration adviser said a determined effort is being made j to whittle down the federal pay- j roll, which has climbed by 3,319 1 in the last eight months to a total! of 2,285,211. The civilian monthly; Payroll is now running at close to ! a billion dollars. ! Other Steps ! Government agencies also have ; been given specific instructions on j other steps expected of them, j The Defense Department is un- I der orders to try to cut its spending by at least half a billion dollars this year. The Pentagon has ordered ships to be laid up, aircraft production slowed down and civilian and uniformed payrolls reduced. The Commerce Department has been told to lake a hard look at its maritime program, and come up with some savings. The entire question of a heavily subsidized merchant marine is under review. All agencies have been told that if their essential programs are going to cost more next year than they are now costing, other programs within their jurisdictions will have to be cut to absorb the increases. Barring some unforeseen developments, no agency will get more Tax Cut ....... See Page 9 Says He Was Not Aware of Man's Record Aug. IS.

Highway Surfacers, Inc., of New Hampton, la., have the contract and are working under the supervision of the county engineer. The experimental surfacing now costs about $25,000 per mile, but Prof. Csanyi believes il can be reduced below $20,000 per mile, eventually.- Arrangements are being made for making photographs and keeping complete records of the project.

Senators Explore Invest merits, Use of Union Funds by'Boss WASHINGTON UFi ~ Teamsters boss James R. Hoffa testified Wednesday he once intervened to get a Philadelphia charier in another union for a hoodlum but said he wasn't fully aware at the time of the man's record. Hoffa's testimony came as the Senate Rackets Investigating Committee explored Hoffa's complicated investments and use of Michigan Teamsters funds in such projects as a race track, a gangster's home, a girl's camp and to influence union elections in other states. Hoffa said in 1955 or 1956—he couldn't recall exactly—he intervened with President Ed Miller of the AFL-CIO Hotel and Restaurant Workers Union to get a Philadelphia charter in that union for Samuel (Shorty) Feldman, then a Philadelphia Teamsters official. Long Police Record Robert F. Kennedy, committee counsel, said Feldman had a long police record, including time served in Sing Sing. He said Fcldman's arrests, dat- ; ing back to the 1920s, included | shoplifting, armed holdups, using j narcotics, carrying burglary tools ! and larceny. ! "I never knew the extent of his record," Hoffa said. "I knew he'd i had some difficulty, but I didn't • j know the extent of it." j Other ma t te r s developed Wednesday were that Hoffa, the man tagged as Dave Beck's successor as president of the 14 million-member Teamsters Union: i 1. Had okayed investing some j $150,000 union funds to buy the Long Beach, Ind.. home of notorious Chicago racketeer Paul <The Waiter) Ricca. Hoffa said the property was to be used as a training school for Teamsters officials and that he didn't know Ricca owned it. Ricca now is facing deportation. 2. Had spent $5,000 from the Hoffa See Page 8 • Teamsters Used Funds in Iowa Governor Election WASHINGTON </P - Teamster leader James R. Hoffa testified Tuesday that the Teamsters Union used some of its funds in the 1956 Iowa governorship election contest. Hoffa did not specify whether the funds went toward the campaign of Gov. Herschel Loveless (D-Ottumwa) or his Republican opponent, former Gov. Leo A. Hoegh. The testimony was given before the Senate Rackets Investigating Committee during an exchange of remarks with Sen. Goldwater (R- Ariz). During discussion of propriety of Michigan Teamsters trying to influence a Teamsters election in Philadelphia, a question arose over the role of Teamsters in elections generally. Goldwater asked in what states Hoffa's Teamsters tried to influence the outcome in the last state elections. Hoffa replied: "I believe Iowa, Michigan and there was some money spent in Kansas but I don't know what particular office." The Detroit Teamsters money spent in Iowa and Michigan—he did not state how much—was put on gubernatorial candidates, he said. Goldwater asked whether Detroit Teamsters money was put into state elections in New York, Pennsylvania and Ohio. To each of these questions, Hoffa replied, "No." Simultaneously a series of incidents broke out on Syrian-Israeli border. Israel believes incidents may bej^j-j forerunner of full scale attack. Four U.N. teams of military observers are on Israel-Syria border. SYRIA Pro-Soviet military clique, now in control ot Damascus, ousted tight- wing commanders and installed own army chief of staff. Also took, over key posts in police and gendarmerie forces, thus controlling all security forces. SAUDI ARABIA Aug. II.

Syria, a country of 74,000 square miles inhabited by almost 4,000,000 people, Is of great strategic importance, lying athwart pipelines running from the Persian Gulf to the Mediterranean Sea. A pro- Soviet clique of army officers, led by leftist Gen; Afif Bizry, is apparently in control of the country. Moscow has been cultivating Syria vigorously with arms shipments and aid. In Washington, U.S. and British officials opened consultations on the thorny Syrian problem and Russia's attempt to make Syria the Soviet Union's first Middle East satellite nation. * $53 Million for School Aid Proposed by Board DES MOINES W — A proposal! advance of the 1959 legislative ses- that state aid to schools be increased to at least 53 million dollars a year was among tentative 1959 legislative recommendations made public Wednesday by the State Board of Public Instruction.

About $36,172,000 of the increased funds would be used to pay in full aid to schools according to a formula set up under law. Because of lack of adequate appropriations, funds are now prorated. The remainder of the 53 million —or $16,828,000—would be distributed as general and supplemental aid. General aid is a flat grant to all school districts; supplemental aid provides poor districts with additional funds. < Well in Advance The board said that since 1951, stale funds to school districts have been increased slightly more than 5 million dollars, while local property taxes have gone up a total of 49 million dollars for the period.

ARROWSMITH • WASHINGTON up — President Eisenhower said Wednesday the ultimate aim of the pro-Communist bid for power in Syria is Sovi* et control of the country. He told a news conference, however, the United Slates government actually does not know how far the process ha? gone. He added this is not at present one of those cases which would justify any kind of action under his Middle East program adopted early this year. That program, spelled out in a congressional resolution, provides for U.S. economic aid and use of American armed force if needed and invited, to head off Red aggression in the Middle East. Eisenhower's evaluation was the first high-level American summation of the Syrian crisis since it began dveloping 10 days ago. Although he did not say specif' ically that he holds Moscow entirely responsible for what has happened, Eisenhower left no doubt that he blames the Soviet government. Red Pattern The pattern of what Is happening in Syria, he said, is an old one with the Soviets. First they oiler economic and military aid, he continued; then they find stooges to take over the country for them. How far this process has gone in Syria, Eisenhower said he doea not know. Asked specifically whether he considers this a deliberate Soviet effort to take over the strategically located Middle Eastern country, Eisenhower replied: He thinks that is the ultimate aim of what is happening. The aim is kept under cover, of course, ar* the situation develops. They—the Soviet Communists—appeal to the spirit of nationalism. When they finally get hold of the situation then the people find that their' country is being run from somewhere else. Declines to Equate • Several times Eisenhower declined to equate Syrian rule at the moment with rule by international —or Soviet controlled—communism. Once he told a questioner that one should always give his enemy a line of retreat if possible. This implied that Eisenhower hopes or Eisenhower See Page » William Walters Pinned Under Tractor William Walters of Arcadia sustained minor injuries when his tractor overturned during a rainstorm Tuesday afternoon as he turned onto a gravel road six miles west and one mile north of Carroll.
