Arrest Pair as Suspects in $300 Holdup BLAIRSTOWN Ifl — Two armed bandits robbed a Blairstown garage operator of approximately $300 Sunday night. Police in Des Moines reported Monday morning they were holding for questioning two men .who resembled descriptions given in the Blairstown robbery. Lloyd Shaull, the Blairstown ga- rageman, 'told authorities he Was working at the garage when the two bandits appeared about 10:30 p.m. He said both were armed and forced him to open the door. After removing the cohtents of his wallet, Shaull said, the men ran to a nearby car and drove off. Shaull described the men as about 20 years old. He said they were wearing blue jeans, tan jackets and tan caps. 1 Blairstown is about 20 miles west of Cedar Rapids. Pilot of Red Jet Says U.S. Planes Tailed Him LONDON (*>—The captain of a Soviet jet airliner says two U.S. bombers tried to shadow his plane on its return from the United States but he ran away from both of them. Moscow radio did not identify the types of bombers other than to say they were four-engined. THe broadcast said the TU104 returned to Moscow from McGuire Air Force Base, N.J.,.in 11 hours 13 minutes flying time for the' 5,570-mile flight. "If was obvious that the Americans were very interested in data about our aircraft," the captain the crew, noticed this aircraft, Lhey somewhat increased the rate if revolutions of the turbines and the bomber rapidly vanished from view." Later, • another bomber attempted to track the Soviet jet in level flight between New York and Goose Bay, Labrador, the captain said. "This bdmber, too, was soon left behind." The broadcast did not mention that three U.S. Air Force men were aboard the TUifW from Goose Bay to McGuire and back to help with navigation and radio contacts. The Soviet airliner, the first to "An American four engined j visit the United States, took Rus- bomber attached himself to us and j sian personnel to the.fcomirig U.N. measured our climbing rate.

Civil Rights- (Continued trom Pagp 1) here the Justice Department plans to submit to Federal District Judge Ronald Davies in Little Rock the report he asked on the integration crisis there. Hagerty said the report would be handed to Davies later in the day. The bill was passed by Congress a day befojre it adjourned Aug. 30, after an historic struggle lasting through the 1957 session. No other civil rights bi|l had been passed since reconstruction days. Passage of the measure was the major action of the session. It also was a significant victory for the President even though his original proposals were rewritten by the Democratic-controlled Congress to remove or soften some of the far- ranging provisions.

Provide for a new assistant attorney general to head and strengthen the civil rights division in the Justice Department. Repeal a reconstruction era law authorizing the President to use troops to enforce court orders in civil rights cases. Eliminate the requirement that Federal Court jurors be qualified under the laws of states in which they serve. This is designed to make certain that Negroes can serve on federal juries. The long congressional debate and victory for the bill are certain to have political repercussions for a long' time. Republicans made it clear they expected to profit at the polls in areas where minority groups are an important factor. GOP lawmakers emphasized that they provided the bulk of the votes for the bill. Democrats argued it was their leadership which put the bill in shape so that it could be passed without a filibuster. Some Democrats also insisted that Republicans were johnny-come-latelies in the held of civil rights. Main Provisions Key provision in the bill is the one arming the attorney general with authority to obtain Federal Court injunctions against illegal interference with the right to vote. However, some of its sponsors feel that the work of the commission also will be highly important. The voting rights section empowers the attorney general, with or without the consent of the victim, to seek an injunction "whenever any person has engagedor there are' reasonable grounds to believe that any person is about to engage in any act or practice which would deprive any other person" of his right to vote. As submitted by the President there would have been - right of jury trial in contempt cases growing out of failure to comply with such injunctions. J. F.

Criminal contempt applies where the judge is punishing a defendant for violation of an injunction. No Jury Trials No jury trials are provided in the bill in civil contempt which is used in cases where the judge seeks to force compliance with his orders. Most lawmakers said that the civil contempt procedure could be used in the great bulk of voting rights cases. An example would be the jailing of a local registrar by a judge until the official agreed to obey the court's order to register a Negro voter. As the administration bill first was introduced, it provided for the Federal Court injunction weapon to enforce a broad variety of civil rights, not only the right to vote. The Senate struck this out and the House concurred. Southerners called this the "most vicious" provision of the bill, claimed it could be used to wipe out segregation in schools, swimming pools, hotels and all public places. six children, Des-Moines; Mr. and Mrs. G.

Emergency Meeting Premier Sabri Assali of Syria held an emergency cabinet session yesterday. A semiofficial source said the Cabinet discussed "U.S. aggressive intentions against Syria." Akranu Hourani, leader of the Baath party and believed to be one of Syria's most power leaders, told a news conference that "'any attack on Syria might lead to world war." A Moscow radio broadcast beamed to North America said: "It is clear that the U.S.A. is hatching plans for armed attack on Syria and will launch it from a neighboring country. "According to these plans, Iraq and Jordan are.j to engineer a number of provocations on the Syrian border and Turkey and Israel will begin an armed attack on Syria." Negro adults who accompanied the Negro students to meet him at a downtown office later. Police made no effort to escort the Negroes inside the building. Their only action was to break up the first violence. Serious Crisis The new crisis punctuated Arkansas t Gov. Orval Faubus' challenge of,.federal school racial integration in what appeared the most Serious, state-federal crisis since Civil War days. His guardsmen have kept Ne groes out of Central High since school opened last Tuesday. At North Little Rock, the superintendent, in an interview with Bob Starr of The Associated Press, said he would advise the six Negroes to enroll in the Scipio Jones High School for Negroes. "I don't think integration wjill work at this time, judging from the temperament of the crowd," Wright said. The adults escorting the students all were ministers. %The Negro group walked back toward a nearby district populated by Negroes. The crowd of whites around the school grew from about 100 to 250 when the Negroes appeared. The crowd shouted, "Hurrah for the governor." Suggests U.S. Yield Sunday night, the governor said to keep Negroes out and to'pre­ vent violence. Wednesday the guard turned back nine Negro students. None has sought entry since. Negro leaders say they have no immediate plans to send students of their race back to face the Guard. Approximately 170 guardsmen, half of them fresh troops relieving a portion of those on duty last week, surrounded the high school Monday. With the governor's renewed challenge Sunday night, no compromise was in sight. President Eisenhower has said, referring directly to the Little Rock crisis, that his aim is to uphold the United States Constitution. The Supreme Court in 1954 ruled that the Constitution does not permit forced school segregation. The President also has said he does not favor use of federal force to implement integration orders. This leaves Gov. Faubus with Forest and Brush Fires eon SACRAMENTO, Calif. tfl-For- stry officials Monday foresaw no letup in the "very critical" weather situation that sparked about 75 forest and brush fires throughout tinder-dry California over the weekend. With some still raging', unchecked, the fires: ' 1. Forced hundreds of vacationers to flee summer homes Iri the timbered Greenhorn Mountain area of Sequoia National Forest. 2. Caused a two hour closure Sunday night of transcontinental U. S. Highway 50 in mountainous El Dorado County when flames approached the roadway near the gold mining town of Placerville, one firefighter was seriously burned. 3. Threatened a Nike guided missile base on Mt. Gleason north of Los -Angeles. More than 2,000 fire fighters were thrown into the fighting against the various blazes—large and small—which flared through out the state. Brought under control late Sunday night was the biggest single fire—one that slackened 11,000 acres r>( uninhabited timber and brush land in the northern Sierra in Yuba County. Elsewhere, new fires were fanning out uncontrolled. A new blaze in the Angeles National Forest destroyed about 400 acres of valuable watershed in San Gabriel Canyon. Wind shifted the stubborn fire that menaced the Mt. Gleason Nike base in the Angeles National Forest. The untamed fire spread out over about 5,000 acres in less than three hours.

A newsman asked Faubus Sunday night: "If the FBI agents took a kid by the arm tomorrow and attempted to escort him through the lines, would he be shot or would they be shot?" The governor answered: "I sincerely hope that no one is shot or that violence or harm comes to no one. Those are eventualities which must be met as they come. I don't think it would be proper for me to comment on what could back down from their integration orders. And, he said in a televised interview, the National Guard still operates with the same orders he issued after calling it up last Monday night on the eve of the opening of 2,000-pupiI Central High School. These orders, he has said, are SAME DAY Residence No. 1 The) former residence of Theodore Staiert and Mary Staiert, deceased, located at 120 North Court Street, Carroll, Iowa First Sale to Be Held Tuesday, September 10, 1957, At 1 O'Cloek P.

The governor repeated earlier statements that he called. up the Arkansas Guard only to prevent violence, although he also gave it orders, he said, to keep Negroes out.

The state jnent said Faubus took the proper course in calling out the Guard and commended him fo the prompt action. Some observers advanced the idea that U.S. Dist.

A newsman asked Faubus Sunday night, "In your opinion, are you in contempt of court now?" and he answered, "No, sir. I am fulfilling my obligations as governor of a state to maintain peace and order. That is paramount to all other issues." Also asked was, "Would you duck a federal subpoena If an attempt was made to serve it on you?" The governor.#)epii id, "That, is an eventuality; which: must decide if and when it should come." Anyone seeking to serve a subpoena would be required to get through National Guardsmen stationed at the governor's mansion since Wednesday night-the night when Faubus claimed in a telegram to President Eisenhower that, he had Information-federal authorities planned to arrest him, NOT BALD The "bald" eagle has a fully feathered head.
