N. to Halt 'Grim Course of Events' in Country UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. wMJ. S. Delegate Henry Cabot Lodge Tuesday called on a special session of the U.N. General Assembly to act with all speed to end the present grim course of events in Communist-controlled Hungary. "The people of Hungary are being shot and imprisoned and maltreated now," Lodge told the 81- nation Assembly. "Their sufferings are actual and acute and demand from one day to the next to be relieved." Lodge spoke after the Hungarian delegation sought unsuccessfully to have the Assembly drop the problem. Presents Indictment Australia's Keith C. 0. Shann, reporter of the Assembly's special committee of inquiry, opened the session by presenting the committee's 150,000-word report indicting the Soviet Union and the regime of Premier Janos Kadar for suppressing the uprising of last fall. Shann declared there can be no doubt that the Hungarian people want freedom and that they are being subjected to brutal repressions DES MOINES I/Pi — In what seemed to have aspects of a race with Gov. Herschel Loveless, the Iowa Commerce Commission Tuesday released a partial list of its new committee to study the impact on Iowa of electric power produced by atomic energy. Gov.

U.S. to Stand Firm on Syria Issue: Dulles WASHINGTON W?M5ecretary of State Dulles said Tuesday he believes the Syrian situation will be worked out peacefully although there are elements which could lead to serious trouble. He told a news conference the United States does not believe in peace at any price and under certain circumstances would act, but he did not define the circumstances or indicate the possibilities of action. Invite Governor The announcement also said: "Inasmuch as Gov. Loveless indicated Monday his interest in peacetime development and use of the atom, this commission has extended an invitation to him to cooperate and assist with the activities of the committee we have duly appointed." j The commerce commission, in an unusual Sunday announcement, (old of its plans to set up a committee and said it had invited Loveless' cooperation. Loveless said Tuesday his invitation came in a specia' delivery letter addressed to him at the Statehouse and mailed at 6 p.m. Sunday. He received it Monday, about 14 hours after the commission announcement had been made public. "This is a rather important thing to start playing politics with," Loveless commented Tuesday. Governor's Plan On Monday the governor had announced his own plans to set up a committee of Iowa scientists to study atomic fallout and radiation in Iowa. He also said he plans'a separate group of 25 to 100 lowans to study Iowa problems in eight or ten fields, ranging from agriculture to industrial aspects of atomic energy. He said he had stressed this idea in cam- j ties expressed fear the paign speeches last year. j might be a total loss. The Commerce Commission's!

Mt-A U.S. marshal passed through the main gate of the governor's mansion Tuesday with an order directing Gov. Orval Faubus to appear in Federal District Court Sept. 20. Troops guarding the mansion opened the gates for the officer. The summons ordered the governor and two subordinates to come to court for a hearing on the issuance of a preliminary injunction restraining him from further interfering with enrollment of Negro students at Little Rock Central High School. A federal authority said he understood the governor had agreed to-accept summons but there was no confirmation from Faubus's office. The marshal showed his credentials to an officer at the gate. "Come in, sir." the officer said. The marshal walked through the gate alone. As he walked along the curving gravel drive toward the mansion, Gov. Faubus cama out, met him half way, and accepted the summons. Earlier Federal Judge Ronald N.

Brownell Tuesday moved through court action to end use of tha Arkansas National Guard in the Little Rock school integration crisis. The attorney general petitioned the Federal District Court at Lit* tie Rock for an injunction to restrain Gov. Orval E. Faubus from using the guard to prevent entrance of eligible Negro students to Central High School. Brownell's action was announced by the Justice Department here. Responds to Directive Brownell acted in response to a directive from Federal Judge Ronald N. Davies. who has three times ordered desegregation at Central High. 1 In line with Davies' order, the petition for an injunction sought * a restrainer not only against Gov. Faubus but also against Maj. Gen. Sherman T. dinger, head of the Arkansas National Guard, and Lt. Col. Marion E. Johnson, head of the guard detachment now ringing the school. Brownell filed the injunction petition as "a friend of the court." This is a legal phrase used by interveners in litigation. The petition said: "In order to protect and preserve the integrity of the judicial process of the courts of the United States and to maintain due and proper administration of justice, it is necessary that Gov. Faubus, Gen. Clinger, and Lt. Col. Johnson be made additional parties defend- and (in the integration court case) and enjoined from obstructing or interfering with the carrying out Little Rock ....

DES MOINES (*l - Nearly.half of Iowa's primary rQad system outside cities and towns is rated "excellent" or "good" but the state road program still has a long way to go, Gerald "Bogan, executive secretary of the Iowa Good Roads Assn., said Tuesday. Bogan released figures based on the" State Highway Commission's 1956 sufficiency rating report. "Iowa has made some mighty good progress during the past two years but our construction program is not out of the woods when less than half of the primary system is rated as good or excellent," Bogan said: Th« report showed that I'M per cent of the state's primary roads in „rural areas were rated,excellent; 23,8 per cent rated good; 40.3 per cent as tolerable; n.9 per cent as poor and 4.6 per cent as critical. - s if" Gov. Herschel Loveless, discussing the same report, last week, said that in his opinion the commission should base its future construction program on a "need" basis. He said he would ask.^ the commission to- adopt the need plan and that if it declined to do so he would favor legislation to require it. Bogan stressed that the report showed none of Iowa's cross-state highways were 24 feet wide along their entire length and that only three of the 18 highways were rated as good or excellent over half their length. He noted that Highway 30, which carries the heaviest, traffic of any road, rates as one'xit'the best with 51 per cent of its mileage classified, as good or excellent But he pointed out that the average daily traffic for the route "qualifies the highway to be, a four-lane road."

Miss Johnson, a Democrat, was replaced by Des Moines abstracter David H. Crenshaw, an active Republican, who is acting postmaster.
