It's time for a shot and judging from his expression Tick doesn't appear too happy about being "shot" with a needle as State Takes in $9 Million at Liquor Stores Second Highest Net Income in 23-Year Commission History DES MOINES (AV-The Iowa Liquor Control Commission reported Friday that in fiscal 1957 it had the second highest net income in the 23-year history of the commission. The amount was nearly $9,000,000. It said also in a report to Gov. Herschel Loveless that for - the first time since 1950, both its dol lar volume and gallonage sales showed increases over the pre vious year. Expenses Up The commission cited an increase in net operating expenses, and commented: "To hold the line on both op crating costs and climbing prices has never before been more chal lenging. It would be easy to con vert such rising costs into higher retail prices, but as long as the net profit per cent remains firm, and a decline in sales persists in our east-west border cities, the wisdom of such a move would be questionable." Several months ago Loveless, a Democrat, suggested greater efficiency by the commission to increase state revenue, and indicated an increase in prices might be considered. The commission was under Republican control at the tjme and continued so during the year covered by the report. With the beginning of the new fiscal year last July 1 the commission control changed to Democratic under a Loveless appointment. The report contained no comment on future price policy. But it said a general price increase by suppliers early this year was passed on to its customers. Analyze Sales, In analyzing sales at the 22 stores doing the most business over the last three years, the report said: The two principal stores in Des Moines showed continuing increase in sales. The third in Des Moines had an increase in 1956, ( but a decrease in 1957. <C J. . One store in Cedar Rapids j Jj © |*| Q fO V S tO showed an increase in 1956 but a decrease in 1957. The other store there had a continuing increase. Two stores in Waterloo were up all the way. One in Fort Dodge showed an increase in 1956 but a decrease in 1957. One store each in Iowa City, Mason City, Marshalltown, and Ottumwa were up all the way. But decreases all the way were shown for two stores at Davenport, two at Sioux City and one each at Dubuque, Burlington and! Muscatine. One store each in' Council Bluffs and Clinton had decreases in 1956 but slight increases in 1957. The report said also: Sales of vodka "continued in increase in fiscal 1957 of 138 per cent by sale of 40,090 gallons. The national per capita consumption of distilled spirits in 1956 increased slightly to 1.29 gallons. But the per capita consumption in Iowa decreased slightly to 66-100ths of a gallon.

Protests to integration of elementary schools in Talbot County Strategy Back of Red Attacks Puzzle to U.S. Officials Study Various Possibilities for Hostile Propaganda By JOHN M. HIGHTOWER WASHINGTON m - U. S. officials are trying urgently to figure out the basic strategy behind Russia's increasingly harsh and hostile propaganda attacks on the United States. One speculation is that the Soviet government may be deliberately recreating a period of intensified East-West tensions in an effort to assert a stronger control over its restive east European satellites. Other Possibilities Other possibilities involve trying to put the blame on the United States all over the world for the breakdown of the London disarmament talks, promoting expaniohist Soviet designs in the Middle East and influencing the West German electorate against Chancellor Konrad Adenauer. The West German elections will be held Sunday. Whatever the basic reason for the tougher policy may be, the Russians apparently are hoping it will help them in all of those situations. The latest Moscow outburst provoked the United States into a bitter reply Thursday. The Slate Department accused Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko of falsifications and intemperance which it said "seem deliberately calcu lated to break those bridges of understanding which still sustain our hopes for peace." j Gromyko lashed out at. the West- j ern allies and the United States particularly in a lengthy pres.s On Integration Issue— Faubus Flies to Historic Meeting With President LITTLE ROCK, Ark.

"I am not writing this to you to remind you all over again." the letter said, "but to all motorists because school again begins. "I want to prevent the tragedy that we have shared together—a mother and you, Mr. Motorist.

George Fitzgerald, Hoffa's lawyer, wrote to Chairman McClellan (D-Ark) and other committee members asking that Hoffa either be recalled early next week or not until Oct. 10. Fitzgerald said Hoffa would be busy constantly with convention business from Sept. 18 to Oct. 10. He noted also that Hoffa must appear in New'York Sept. ^23 to answer to a wiretapping conspiracy indictment. Fresh Evidence Hoffa's request apparently was prompted by comments made by> committee counsel Robert F. Kennedy In Detroit earlier this week. Kennedy said that a hunt with a dozen committee staff investigators in Hoffa's home town had been worthwhile and had produced fresh evidence. He added he felt the material warranted new hearings prior to the Teamsters convention. about $900. King Saud Urges U.S. to Be Moderate NEW YORK (/PV-King Saud of Saudi Arabia today was reported to have sent a message to President Eisenhower urging moderation in U.S. policy toward Syria. The New York Times and the New York Herald-Tribune reported in Washington dispatches that a message from Saud warned against any U.S. action that might push Syria further toward the Soviet orbit. Quoting diplomatic sources, the reports said Saud told the President that U.S. concern over developments in Syria was exaggerated. They also .said the message from Saud was believed to be a factor in the more temperate line on Syrian developments taken by Secretary of State Dulles in his news conference comments this week. No Resistance Fitch and Deford got into the car j about two hours later. Using a loudspeaker, police warned them they were surrounded and ordered them to come out with their hands up. They surrendered without resistance. Police said Hendrickson apparently stayed in Minnesota. When sent to the hospital for observation, Fitch was serving a nine-year term for a sex crime in 1954 and Deford was doing 20 years for the 1944 slaying of his foster mother. Search for Hendrickson was being concentrated Friday in Minneapolis' lower loop area, where he is believed to be well known among habitues of some of the skid row district's bars. A foreclosure action for $10,OQ0 alleged unpaid principal of a mortgage, $106.66 interest and $40 for abstract charges and statutory fees was ordered paid by Mr. and Mrs. George W. Thomas to Mr. and Mrs. Soren S. Kudsk in a ruling by District Judge William C. Hanson, court records revealed Friday. The court found that on Aug. 2, 1956 there was due and owing $10,000 principal and $106.67 interest by the defendants. The court further found that on Aug. 8, 1956 the defendant tendered a check in the amount of $105.80 for the purpose of paying interest and that on Aug. 10, 1956 the plaintiff returned the check and served notice of intention to bring an action of foreclosure in accordance with terms of the mortgage and note. The foreclosure action was begun on Aug. 11, 1956. The suit involves a residence property, the conference in advance, but I'm optimistic."

While said he did not know bow long the flight would take, because of uncertain weather, nor where the plane might land. Faubus also said he did not know where he would spend the night. He said no arrangements had been made. Faubus said he might have to land somewhere "in the Newport area" and go to the President's vacation headquarters by plane or automobile Saturday morning. He smilingly turned aside all questions about the moves he will make in conference with the President. 'Asked whether he was annoyed by the "throw in the sponge" comment by a television commentator Thursday, Faubus said: "No, I wasn't annoyed—particularly after the President and Jus aide made the statements denying it." Not Weakened Did he consider that the expression might have weakened the possibility of a solution of the problem? "I don't think so," Faubus said, "particularly after they said what they did up there." He was asked whether Saturday's meeting might be the first of a series—or whether there might be other conferences on other government levels in the attempt to solve the integration controversy in Little Rock. "I couldn't say," Faubus re- plid. "It's a possibility there might be others." Both the governor and Rep. Hays, intermediaty between Faubus and the White House, declined Retired Archbishop of Dubuque Lived as a Child at Roselle DUBUQUE (M-The Most Rev. Henry P. Rohlman, 81, retired archbishop of the Roman Catholic archdiocese of Dubuque, died Friday in Xavier hospital here,, where he had been a patient for two weeks. The prelate, one of the- Midwest's most widely known churchmen, had resigned because of health from the see of Dubuque in 1954 after serving as archbishop since November, 1946..

Under 1 the signature this postscript: "Another year. And once again your flowers arrive. They are beautiful. Thank you." The newspaper sent reporter Charles Neiswender to investigate. He talked with a close friend of the letter writer. She told him the letter was written four years ago on the first anniversary of the tragedy. It was written but never intended to be mailed to the rnari who was driving the car. The friend sent the letter to the paper, which printed it Thursday. The -motorist? He still sends the mother flowers on each anniversary of the children's death. And the mother? She couldn't write a letter now. For in her mind she still waves goodby to the smiling faces of her children. The tragedy was too much. She is in a mental hospital, hopelessly insane.

Backers of the plan said the large vote against the proposal probably was due to lack of understanding of how the sewer system was to be financed. Storm Lake has lost several feet of water in the last few years and a major drive is on for its rehabilitation. Some who questioned the advis ability of starting the sanitary dis trict now, said proposals to be placed before the next Legislature to finance both the sewage system and lake rehabilitation probably would be rejected. Methodist' Men Work, See Movie A film depicting the operation of the Baltimore and Ohio railroad was the entertainment feature for the regular meeting of Methodist men here Thursday night. The 35 members who were present also uncrated a number of tables and chairs which will be used in the new building. Devotions were led by Herschel Heath, chairman of the men's club.

Hays said the Eisenhower-Faubus conference "may bring the conclusion of one, phase of the problem of not only Little Rock and the South but of the nation." The reference apparently was to the general problem of race relations. Hays said also he felt it is important "to avoid any letdowns if we don't come to a solution." He did not elaborate on this point. Hays probably will join Faubus in at least some of the discussion with Eisenhower.

Jones, president of the newspaper Printing Corp. of Tulsa, Okla., told the board's meeting Thursday that more than $3,235,600,000 was spent on newspaper advertising last year. "This is a striking vote of confidence in the matchless efficiency of newspapers as an advertising medium by the advertisers themselves," he said. - Lloyd Sees Chance Yet to Agree on Disarmament LONDON (fl—Foreign Secretary Selwyn Uoyd said Friday he still sees "a real chance of agreement" with the Soviet Union on disarmament despite the breakdown of the U.N M subcommittee talks here. Speaking before the 46th conference of the Interparliamentary Union, Lloyd said that fears of a new world war will never disappear unless the big powers agree on a properly controlled and comprehensive disarmament program. He admitted that many practical problems must be surmounted before such an agreement is worked out. Until then he said Britain and her allies, will continue "to take the necessary measures and make the necessary sacrifices . . .to deter any aggressor." "Without a comprehensive disarmament agreement, properly controlled, we shall never rid the world of the fear of war," Lloyd said. The British foreign secretary declared that Russia and the West have agreed in principle on the main terms of limited disarmament, but he added: "There is a wide gulf between such an agreement in principle and the kind of specific agreement which alone could start the actual process of disarmament." Among the practical matters that will have to be worked out, he said,'are an inspection system for nuclear tests, a control, agreement to stop the production of nuclear weapons materials, a definition of man-power«for reducing force* levels and ground control posts for an aerial inspection system.
