Court Bottle On Wedding Shower Gifts NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. Mfi Faced with a problem thai might have tried King Solomon, District Court Judge George R. Morrison must decide by next Thursday who gets the fruits of love when the tree has died. In more prosaic terms, he has to rule on who gets the shower presents after the engagement has been broken. Back in June 1956, some 150 friends of Miss Margaret Bodnar and Thomas Kucharsky, both of South Rivera, gave them a wedding shower. After the shower. Kucharsky, with his fiancee's consent, took the 63 gifts they received to the apartment where the happy couple was to live. A day later, however, they called off the wedding because of arguments about the gifts. Miss Bodnar demanded their return, and Kucharsky refused. So she filed suit asking either return of the presents of $750. In a counter suit. Kucharsky claimed the gifts were' as much his as hers since both their names appeared on the. shower invitations. BUBBLES: ROUND AND SQUARE . . . Round bubbles, left, are produced by small children with soap bubble pipes and most of the time by nature. Now, Peter Senio, a metallurgist at the Knolls Atomic Power Laboratory in Schenectady, N.Y., reports that he has discovered sqnare bubbles in nature. The first such' ever observed in nature, the square and rectangular bubbles, right, only three-one-hundred-thousandt of an Inch thick, appear when lithium fluoride, irradiated with neutrons, is heated above 600 degrees centigrade (1,112 degrees Fahrenheit). Square bubbles shown were magnified more than 400 times, then enlarged in a photo-enlarger. The Knolls Laboratory is operated by General Electric for the Atomic Energy Commission. Nun, 62, Flies Jet; 525 m.p.h. MCQUIRE AIR FORCE BASE, \ N.J. Uh— A 62-year-old Roman Catholic nun who is a licensed pilot. said her first jet flight Thursday j was like the answer to a prayer. I Sister Mary Aquinas averaged i 525 miles an hour in her T-33 jet! trainer flight with Air Force Ma- ] jor Chester A. Biedul, Detroit. She j look over the controls part of the | time as they winged from Madi- \ son. Wis., to McGuire. A science j teacher at Holy Family College,! Manitowoc. Wis., she came to New Jersey to give a lecture. "If I ever felt good about being a science teacher, it was while 1 was up there as close to God as I could get and knowing it was an application of some of the scientific principles we teach that made such a flight possible," she said. Chessman Wins Another Round SAN FRANCISCO im -Caryl Chessman, the convicted "sexier-! rorist who has staved off execu- j tion for nine years and written j three books, has won the right to j take his case back to Los Angeles j where it began in 1948. I The state supreme court, while denying his petition to be transferred to Los Angeles County Jail so he can carry on his fight there, did refer to Los Angeles Superior Court Chessman's argument that the death of a court reporter before transcription of his shorthand notes resulted in a fraudulent trial transcript. The referral complied with a U.S. Supreme Court order which said that if the Los Angeles court does not hear Chessman's plea he may be freed by federal court on a writ of habeas corpus. Recover $18,500 Worth of Material Buried at Air Base WASHINGTON 1*1 - The Pentagon admitted Tuesday it has recovered from a "grave" at a Newfoundland air base and returned to stock $18,500 worth of spare parts that someone had cast off and buried as useless. The testimony came from Perkins McGuire, assistant secretary of defense, in a statement filed with the Senate Investigations Subcommittee. McGuire gave the subcommittee credit for disclosing that 44 million dollars worth of spare parts had accumulated since the start of the Korean War at nine Far North air bases in Greenland, Newfoundland and Labrador. He said he has found 14 million dollars worth of spare parts in excess of needs still on hand at Harmon Air Force Base, Newfoundland, and an estimated $20,680,000 worth still on hand at six other northern bases. Th.e Defense Department announced previously that it already has brought back to this country 20 million dollars worth. McGuire announced he has been assigned to investigate inventory practices at U.S. air bases around the globe as a result of disclosures by the subcommittee.

AMES — A trip here this week by two outstanding Missouri prep football players has brought a denial of wrongdoing by Iowa State College athletic officials. "Everything we did was perfectly legal," new Cyclone Coach Jim Myers said Thursday. The Columbia (Mo.) Tribune opened the controversy in a story Thursday, saying Iowa State tried to get the two football stars to abandon plans to enroll at Missouri. Myers identified the two as fullback Mel West and halfback Don Webb of Jefferson City High School's 1956 championship team. The two prospects became known to the Iowa State staff, Myers said, through John Griffith, a former Cyclone athlete, who coached the Jefferson City football team last fall. Offers Cited The story said a scholarship was offered one player and $100 a week jobs for both of them, plus free room and board for the three weeks before school opens here. Myers said Missouri Coach Frank Broyles "has threatened any coach who comes into Missouri looking for boys. Well, I'm not going to be threatened." Broyles, like Myers, also is making his debut as a head coach this fall. Myers did not deny the youths were given round-trip tickets to Ames. "It's perfectly legal under NCAA rules to do that once," he said. But the Cyclone coach did deny offering them rooms or, any other trips home during the year. "The boys either misinterpreted the offer or were misquoted," Myers said. He said West was offered' a scholarship "because he was in the upper third of his high school class." Because Webb was not in the upper third. Myers said, "we told him if he came here he'd have to pay his own tuition the first quarter and try to bring his grades up to where he can become eligible for a grant-in-aid scholarship." Webb was told "we'd get him a summer job," Myers said. "It has nothing to do with a job during the school year. "We could get them summertime jobs and employment during Christmas vacation. We're fortunate to have more big engineers than all schools in the conference combined and they can offer the boys good jobs." Myers said that prior to West and Webb coming here "we were threatened by a Missouri Univer* sity official in an attempt to scare us off the boys. "I believe I have more sense than to go down there and do something below board." Athletic Director Louis Menze also denied any Big 4 Eight or NCAA rules were violated. Assistant Cyclone Coach Russ Faulkinberry planned to go to Sedelia, Mo., to watch a Missouri all-star high school football game in which both youths will appear Friday night. 3 lowans Die in Traffic Accidents By The Associated Press Three lowans were dead Friday as a result of motor vehicle ac : cidents. Mrs. Le s 1 i e Knowles, 37, Braddyville farm wife, was killed Thursday when her car collided with a tractor-ladened transport near Braddyville. James Breeden, 66, Kellogg, also was killed Thursday in a collision of his jeep and a truck on Highway 156 north of Grinnell. Bert Benson, 47, Ventura, died at a Rochester, Minn., hospital Thursday of injuries he received Aug. 19 in an auto accident on Highway 20 west of Rockwell City. In the car-transport crash, Mrs. Knowles' son, Paul, 11, was injured and taken to a Clarinda hospital. Dick Robinson of Clarinda. operator of the transport, said it appeared the car's brakes failed as it approached an intersection. Two men, William McGriff, 64, and Ray McGriff, 46, both of New Sharon, were hurt when the jeep collided with their truck. A Drive For Adjournment By Congress By G. MILTON KELLY WASHINGTON UR-Withihe last major roadblock swept aside in the Senate, Congress drove for probable adjournment of its 1957 session today. Senate passage Thursday night of an historic civil rights bill broke the legislative log jam, putting the go-home rush in high gear. Today, the Senate found itself with no major legislation hanging fire before the final gavel. In the House, a compromise foreign aid bill and another designed lo protect FBI files were expected to get quick approval. Senate Democratic Leader Lyndon B. Johnson of Texas called that body back to work at 9 a.m. today — the House arranged to meet at 10 a.m. 8-Month Session Leaders predicted Congress—if it really tried—could complete its work in time to quit and go home by mid-afternoon, ending an eight 1 month session that began Jan. 3. The Senate passed the civil rights bill, designed to protect the voting rights of Negroes, on a 6015 roll call vote. Passage came near the end of a marathon 39- hour session, in which Sen. Thurmond (D-SC) waged a record one- man filibuster against it. Thurmond spoke for 24. hours and 19 minutes, and said "I feel fine" when he quit. He smashed a four-year record of 22 hours and 26 minutes, held by Sen. Morse tD-Orei. The civil rights measure represented a victory for the Eisenhower administration, although it had been shorn of some features the President had requested. It remained to be seen whether Eisenhower now would soften his appraisal of the 1957 legislative record of the Democratic-controlled Congress. He told an Aug. 21 news conference he viewed that record as a disappointing one. Senate approval sent the compromise civil rights measure to Eisenhower. Passes Bill Then, with only minutes of debate on each, the Senate passed these bills: 1. A $3,435,810,000 money bill to finance the nation's global program of military and economic aid to friendly countries. The measure went then to the House. 2. A compromise bill to ease some restrictions in the immigration laws, but denying many liberalizing features Eisenhower had asked. It went to the White House. 3. A bill designed to protect FBI files from limitless scrutiny by defense lawyers, and to safeguard the right of defendants in federal courts to examine relevant ma- erial in those files. This bill also went back to the House. First to.

Hickenlooper and Martin Thursday night voted with the majority when the Senate passed the three-billion-dollar appropriations and the compromise civil rights bills. By JOE HALL WASHINGTON un - The first civil rights bill to pass Congress in more than 80 years was on its way to President Eisenhower today. The Senate completed congressional action on the compromise measure late Thursday night after 39 hours of continuous session," passing it by an overwhelming 60-15 vole, the House had passed the bill last Tuesday. The end of the months-long bai­ lie over civil rights came two hours after Sen. Thurmond (D-SC) ended a record-setting filibuster against the bill. Thurmond held the floor for 24 hours and 19 minutes. The previous record was set in 1953 by Sen. Morse (D-Ore) In art equally futile effort to defeat the submerged oil lands bill. Thurmond's filibuster was singled-handed. Other Southerners tefrafned from joining in because they felt it was fruitless and might boomerang. Clears Way to Adjourn Final passage of the civil rights measure cleared the way for adjournment of Congress, probably today. On the final roll call, 15 Southerners voted "no." Thirty-seven Republicans and 23 Democrats joined in support of the bill. There were many absentees. The bill provides broad new federal enforcement powers in the field of voting rights, although it does not contain some of the far- ranging provisions originally asked by Eisenhower. Nevertheless, its passage is an outstanding victory for Eisenhower and for members of both parties who have struggled for years to win action on civil rights. The political repercussions are certain to be felt for a long time. The key feature of the bill is a provision giving the Justice Department authority to seek federal court injunctions to enforce the right of every citizen to vote, regardless of race or color. In its final form, this provision was modified so that persons charged with criminal contempt for violating such injunctions would be granted a jury trial if they were tried first by a judge alone and sentenced to more than 45 days in jail or fined more than $300. But no jury trials would be authorized in civil contempt cases stemming from voting rights injunctions. Some legislators say the bulk of court orders in voting rights cases could be enforced through civil contempt action. Civil contempt actions are aimed at obtaining compliance with a court order. Criminal contempt is intended to punish for n6n-compliance. Other Provisions Other provisions in the bill would: Create a slx-mcmber bipartisan commission, named by the President but with Senate confirmation, to make a broad two-year study of all civil rights problems, with 10 Times Herald, Carroll, lew* Friday, Aug, 30, 1957 specific attention to complaints of denial of voting rights. The commission would have subpoena powers. Create a new civil rights division in the Justice Department, headed by an assistant attorney general. Repeal an old Reconstruction era law that authorized the president to employ troops to enforce court orders in civil rights cases. Eliminate from the federal Jury law the requirement • thai federal court jurors be qualified under the laws of the states in which they serve. This is designed to make it certain Negroes can serve on federal juries, although there already is a law barring racial discrimination in selection of such jurors. Fine, Jail Penalty The bill, in its final form, also provides a fine of $1,000 or a jail term of up to a year for unauthorized disclosure of any secret proceedings of the Civil Rights Commission. But there is a stipulation that these penalties apply to commission employes, not to j newsmen. j Eisenhower is considered cer- • lain to sign the bill, even though I it does not give him all he asked. I Republicans generally were ju- | hilant over the final victory in the | long struggle over the measure. Ease Iowa Rest Home Rules Stunt Fliers in Jefferson Show Sunday, Sept. 8 JEFFERSON — One of the nation's greatest stunt pilots, Maj. I Arthur J. Davis, will be honored in Jefferson Sunday, Sept. 8 at an 'airshow which will be held at the Municipal Airport starting at 2:30 p.m. Maj. Davis, a veteran of World Wars I and II, was born and reared in Greene County, where he first learned to fly. During World j War I he was a fighter pilot and ; after the war became a stunt and j racing pilot flying in airshows and 1 race meets from coast to coast. ;He has over 300 firsts besides scores of seconds in racing competition. He joined the Ferry Command during World War II and flew fighters and bombers to the front lines in all theatres of the war. After the war closed he again became active in the airshow field. ; He will fly a specially built stunt ! ship doing all types of daredevil maneuvers. Top stunt pilots and stunt men from all over the Midwest are expected to be present and will par: ticipate. The air-force is being asked to send in jet fighters to help celebrate Art Davis Day. DBS MOltfES (fft-Ari Advisory Committee of State Fire Marshal Ed Herron decided Thursday to ease new fire safety rules for nursing and custodial homes. . Among, rules changed was one involving the installation of automatic sprinkler systems—the main subject of controversy since the rules were drawn up last month. Increase Occupancy Over Herron's objection, the Advisory Committee boosted from 15 to 20 the number of occupants a frame nursing or custodial home may have without being required to install a sprinkler. Herron estimated the change exempts about 60 nursing and custodial homes from the requirements on sprinkler systems. He said about 140 of the 1,000 homes in Iowa will now be required to install sprinklers. At a public hearing last week, nursing home operators com- I plained that sprinkler systems j would be' too costly. Herron has , estimated the cost at $2,500. [ The new fire safety rules, au- I thorized in a bill passed by the j last Legislature following the fatal {fire at a Council Bluffs nursing | home, will go in effect after re- I view by the attorney general, : probably within 10 days. 1 Other Changes 1 Other rule changes included: j To allow frame homes now lions- j ing occupants on the third floor to continue to do so, if they are sprinkler-protected and conform with state or city law. That there be uniform Interpretation . of regulations governing nursing and custodial homes by the fire marshal's office, State Health Department and Social Welfare Department.
