Kohler Favored to Win Wisconsin Senate Race By ARTHUR BYSTROM MILWAUKEE W — Wisconsin voters choose a successor to the late Sen. Joseph R. McCarthy in a special election today with both major party candidates predicting victory. Favored to win in a stale that has not sent a Democrat to the U.S. Senate in 25 years was three- time Republican Gov. Walter Kohler Jr., a firm supporter of President Eisenhower, The supporters of Democratic candidate William Proxmire, however, could see nothing but victory for their nominee, who has been defeated in three tries for the'gov­ ernor's post—including two beatings by Kohler. The stormy, 10-year-career of McCarthy, who died May 2, was expected to have little bearing on the outcome. A McCarthy vote as : such appears to be almost non! existent. The election is for the ! remainder of McCarthy's term | which ends in January 1959. ; Philleo Nash, Democratic state chairman, predicted flatly that j Proxmire would win, contending there was disagreement among ! Republican party people. I The race between Kohler and ; Proxmire apparently tightened recently due to heavy campaign; ing by both candidates, but a i Proxmire victory would be con! sidered an upset. ! The outcome of the election will ; not immediately affect Senate ; control. The Democrats now hold ' a 49-45 edge. another STRONG reason wlty a gkdkui HOME HEATER OUTHEATS OUTLASTS ALL OTHERS!

The cost of delivery totaled $210.13. Commodities delivered by the county welfare office included: Cheese, 3,600 pounds. Dry milk, 4,212 pounds. Rice, 2,100 pounds. Flour, 10,700 pounds. Corn meal, 4,900 pounds. Beans, 1,200 pounds. A total of 4,073,076 pounds of government surplus commodities, valued at approximately $795,738.84 were distributed to needy families in 69 counties during the first six months of this year, according to L. L. Caffrey, chairman of the {state board of social welfare. Delivery cost to the counties, which includes all expenses incurred by the state for handling, storage "and freight charges to the county warehouses, totaled $27,954.86 or 69c per hundred pounds. Counties reimburse the state for this expense. United States Department of Agriculture surplus commodities available to the department of social welfare for distribution included cheese, dry milk, beans, rice, flour and corn meal. However, all counties are not prepared to use all items and may requisition just those commodities they can handle at a local level. Mr. Caffrey said, "Families receiving these supplies are certified as eligible through the departments of social welfare in the 69 participating counties. Any county wishing to distribute surplus commodities to its needy families may do so . by meeting costs of distribution. OH.

Adams, Carroll, Iowa Rotarians Hear Talk by Student Experiences as a student in London were related to Carroll Rotarians Monday night by Charles Jones of Canton, S. D., a Rotary Foundation fellow. At the conclusion of his address, Mr. Jones showed colored slides of British scenes. Guests were Dr. Norman Schulz, guest of his partner, Dr. R. F. Ba- iels; James Bockhaus, guest of his father, Howard Bockhaus; F. H. Cooney of Carroll and Harold Pelsue of Canton, S. D.. guest of the 1 a 11 e r's brother-in-law, Glenn N. Weeks; and Ralph Nelsen, guest of Gene Hagen. President L. B. Westendorf announced that there will be no meeting next Monday night because of the Labor Day holiday. He also announced that Paul Rogers, vice president of Ozark Airlines, will speak at a guest night meeting Monday, Sept. 9. Mr. Rogers, who has appeared before the club previously, is scheduled to discuss the possibility of securing airline feeder service for Carroll. Larry P. Jung, who is arranging the program, has asked Rotarians to invite business and professional leaders from surrounding towns so that they may learn how feeder service here could benefit their communities. Glenn N. Weeks was in charge of last night's program. Dr. Walter A. Anneberg, chairman of the club's foundation fund, introduced the speaker. Mr. Jones, once a resident of INSTALL NEW VEHICLE DETECTOR . . . Safety and Traffic Department employees of the State Highway Commission are shown in the process of installing a magnetic type vehicle detector cell underneath the paving on U. S. 59 at the north city limits of Defiance. The use of magnetic cells to actuate fixed type traffic recorders, in place of the familiar electric eye detectors, has been made necessary by the changes in car and truck body styles during the past few years. Passenger cars have become lower, allowing the beam of the electric eye to pass through the windows and not making a count. Trucks have become higher, allowing the beam to pass under the truck, and counting each axle, registering an over­ count on each truck vehicle. The magnetic detector was chosen as the best means of obtaining accurate counts, as this unit is actuated by the magnetic field of the vehicle passing over it. Of the thirty-six fixed type automatic traffic recorders maintained by the Highway Planning Survey, 25 have been modernized to date, with all units on both primary and secondary road systems expected to be completed by next spring.

He described life at the "trolley car" school (like some U.S. universities, it has no campus) and j told of visits to British Rotary clubs where he spoke. Mr. Jones was" able to visit other European nations and to attend various political meetings. In addition to post-graduate work in economics, he also studied political science. He said his year in Britain afforded an outstanding time for study of politics. 4th Member of Family in Crash Dies CEDAR RAPIDS W) — Services will be held here Wednesday for four members of a, Cedar Rapids family who were victims of an auto accident near Elmhurst, 111., Sunday.

Six Buildings Destroyed; Fire Visible 45 Miles REEDSBURG. Wis. W-A raging fire—visible 45 miles away—destroyed six business places in the heart of this south-central Wisconsin city of 4,600 Tuesday and was threatening a seventh. Eight fire departments from nearby communities were fighting the blaze. Ten persons, none of them injured, were evacuated from the one and two-story buildings in the business district. A department store, the largest in Sauk County, was a complete loss. An auto firm, located in the rear of the store, also was reported destroyed along with about 25 automobiles in an adjacent used car lot. A state police dispatcher reported seeing the flames from atop a 10-story building in Madison, 45 miles to the southeast. The fire was reported at 2:10 a.m. and the cause was not immediately established. A downtown polling place "set up for Tuesday's special senatorial election, was destroyed and authorities said a- temporary voting room will be set up in an implement company show room a half block away. DES MOINES HP)—The 1957 Iowa State Fair entered its seventh day Tuesday and fair officials were hopeful that crowds would continue to surpass last year's attendance figures for corresponding days. Attendance Monday topped the 32,000 mark, compared with slightly more than 29,000 on the same day in 1956. Although the crowd fell considerably short of Sunday's, it was a good day for demonstrations and the spectators were attentive. A dazzling little black pony, bred in Iowa, set a world record when he won his fourth grand championship in succession in the National Shetland Pony Congress. Raised at Exline The pony, Frisco Pete, was raised by Mr. and Mrs. Ted Welch of Exline but is now the property of Fernwood Farm, Barrington, 111. No other Shetland stallion ever has equaled the record of the 7- year-old high-actioned, smooth performer. Frisco Pete won his first two championships when champions were named on an over-all basis — that is, without regard for heights. For the last two years grand champions have been named in the under-42-inches class and also in the over-42-but-under-46-inches class. Frisco Pete is in the latter. Taking reserve championship honors in the over-42-class .was Call Me Mister, owned by F. W. Seekamp, Greenfield,, 111. Grand Champion Grand champion in the under* 42 class wa» Suburban Acre's Colonel, owned by Winds Chant Farm, Grays Lake, 111. Reserve honors went to Silvermane's Noble Cody, owned by H. P. Kilkelly and Sons, Cuba City, Wis. The junior champion stallion was Frisco Kid, a pony sired by Frisco Pete and also owned by Fernwood Farm. Reserve cham* ion was Silvermane's Noble Cody. Suburban Acre's Colonel was named senior champion in the under-42 class and reserve honors were taken by Rip's Little Masterpiece, owned by John J. Tolan, Pleasant Plains, 111. ' Frisco Pete was senior champion in the over-42 class and reserve honors were accorded Call Me Mister. In the Shropshire show, E. H. Rotter of West Point shared top honors with two Illinois sheep raisers. An ewe lamb entry of Rotter was named champion ewe. A yearling ram owned by him was named reserve champion ram. T. J. Allison's of Charleston, 111., showed the champion ram — an aged ram. Larry Wihdish of Yates City, 111., had the reserve champion—a yearling. House Poised to Pass Negro Voting Rights Bill By B. L. LIVINGSTONE WASHINGTON 'ijfj-The House was poised to pass quickly today a compromise civil rights bill. But there were signs of possible rearguard action by Southerners in the Senate. In the House, SouUiern foes of civil rights legislation appeared reconciled to defeat. But in the Senate, some Southerners were holding out for a filibuster against the compromise. Sen. Russell (D-Ga) said he couldn't forecast what might happen. He indicated it would be up to individuals. 'Lot of Opposition' "There is a lot of opposition to this compromise, which really wipes out the jury trial amendment," he said. "There will be some long speeches against it." He said it was possible that even if no filibuster develops the Senate may not get to vote on the bill this week. Congressional leaders have been pointing toward adjournment by this weekend. Though falling short of President Eisenhower's original program,' the bipartisan compromise was clearly the best he could expect. It centered on a Senate- passed provision guaranteeing defendants the right of jury trial in cases of criminal contempt of court. As originally proposed by the administration, the bill would have empowered the attorney general to apply for count injunctions to protect civil rights in general. Persons who violated such injunctions could have been jailed by federal judges for contempt of court. The House passed a bill conforming generally to the administration's program. The Senate voted to limit the judge's powers by requiring jury trials for any person charged with criminal contempt of court. The Senate jury trial provision also would have applied for a wide range of laws not touching on civil rights but including such matters as labor injunctions under the Taft-Hartley Act. The compromise, hammered out informally by Republican and Democratic leaders, would narrow the jury trial provision to apply only to voting rights cases and would give federal judges a limited right to try without a jury persons accused of violating court orders in such cases. As sent to the House, the compromise bill provides that in criminal contempt cases where judges proceed without juries, defendants could demand a new trial by jury if the penalty exceeds a fine of $300 or 45 day? in jail. Maximum penalty under a jury conviction would be $1,000 fine and six months in jail. Other features of the bill were 8 Time* Herald, Carroll, low* Tuesday, Aug. 27, 1957 among those requested by Eisenhower. The bill would set up a special (bipartisan civil rights commission to make a two-year study of civil rights problems. It would also create a new civil rights division in the Justice Department to be headed by an assistant attorney general. Eisenhower was reported to approve of the compromise and was expected to sign it if it reaches his desk., Rep. Colmer (D-Miss) summed up the Dixie view of the compromise by saying it "blackmailed" defendants into accepting a court- imposed penalty rather than risk a larger sentence in a jury trial. But Rep. Hale iR-Maine) said ' the compromise was "probably as ! fair and equitable as could reason! ably have been devised." \ Travel broadens people who take j a vacation trip and those who don't i may be broadened just by sitting I around.
