Nev. m - A bright yellow Hash, a sharp crack and a prolonged rumble signaled the 18th shot in the Atomic Energy Commission's current tost series early Sunday. It was the 62nd blast'to sear the desert since the tests here began in 1951. Another is scheduled for Tuesday.

Lester Moore of the Manning Methodist Church has been appointed director of the CROP campaign in Woodbury and Ida counties. LONDON W>—A U.S. civilian imprisoned in Communist China on spy charges has been quoted by visiting Americans as saying he worked for the Central Intelligence Agency. The British news agency Reu-f ters reported in a Peiping dispatch Sunday that five U.S. students said the statement was made to them in a Peiping prison visit with Richard Fecteau, 30, of Lynn, Mass. A spokesman for the CIA in Washington refused to comment. The prisoner's mother Mrs. Philip D. Fecteau has denied that he worked for the CIA. Fecteau and John Downey, 27, of New Britain, Conn., both civilian employes of the Army, disap peered on a flight from Korea to Japan In 1952. The Communists repeatedly have accused them of working for the CIA. Fecteau was sentenced to 20 years and Downey to life imprisonment. The •> Communists asserted they were shot down over Man churia while dropping supplies to agents there. The United States has denied this. Reuters said separate groups from the 41 young Americans on -an unauthorized tour of Red China visited for 30 minutes each with Fecteau and Downey Sunday. The 10 visitors — five to each prisoner—later drew up a joint statement about, the Interviews. The statement was released after a 17-hour delay, officially attributed to "difficulties in mimeographing," The visitors were required to agree before visiting the prison that they would not ask Fecteau and Downey any questions about their trial or* charges against them. They were forbidden to take notes. The touring Americans may be allowed to visit other U.S. prisoners in Shanghai, Chinese authorities indicated. Two Catholic priests—the Revs. John P. Wagner of Pittsburgh and Joseph P. McCormack of Osslning, N. Y- Tlmat Herald, Carroll, Iowa Monday, Sept. 9, 1957 and businessman Hugh F. Redmond of Yonkers, N. Y,, are believed under house arrest in Shanghai. Fectau was quoted as„ saying that he had intended to become a football coach when he enrolled in Boston University but decided he could not make enough money that way and went to work for the government. The interviewers said he then was asked: "For the CefHral Intelligence Agency?" They said Fecteau replied: "Yes." He was quoted as saying he was held in solitary confinement for 2V4 years before he was sentenced. "It was pretty tough," he said. "There was no one to talk to, nothing to read and nothing to do. I got a nervous tic but that has gone now. I think the general practice is. to be rough on prisoners before the sentence and lenient afterward. The treatment is fine now." Fecteau said there had been no organized attempt to make him a Communist. Fecteau said he had nothing to tell the press except "to get me out of here." Downey, described as suntanned and with cropped hair, was quoted aB saying he was convinced it is wrong to believe the Communist government of China is only a passing phase and that Nationalist President Chiang Kai- shek will retake the mainland. Both prisoners seemed to be in good health, their Visitor said. The two are in separate cells; each shared with one English-speaking Chinese prisoner. 5,500 Attend Air Show at Jefferson JEFFERSON Ifl-An estimated 5,500 persons attended the air show here Sunday, honoring Maj.

Judge Henry C. Ferguson Sunday set bond for Joseph Caraher after telling him he was "feigning insanity." Four persons have identified Caraher as the man who stabbed them on the streets of Chicago. Delay Arraignment Ferguson postponed until Wednesday Caraher's arraignment in Felony Court on four charges of assault with a deadly weapon. Caraher was seized Friday by an off-duty detective in a chase on Chicago's near Northwest side. A citywide search was launched last week after a wave of stab- bings was reported to police. None of the victims was seriously injured. When Caraher appeared before Judge Ferguson he appeared bewildered and incoherent. After he appeared not to hear, Ferguson snapped: "I believe you know what's going on, but you're feigning insanity." Ex-Night Watchman Garaher is an ex-night watchman who has been unemployed since May. Police said he has seemed dazed and unresponsive to questioning. He has denied the stabbings. But police said the chase which captured him Friday was led by witnesses to the last of the eight stabbings. Patrick Deeley, chief of detectives, said Caraher will be given a few days rest in the hope that he may become calm enough for questioning about a number of unsolved crimes.
