Bach Kveolng for IS Ctnta Per Weak / • Covt Faubus Have Friendly, Constructive Train Boys to Handle Trucks, Cars at Eldora First Such Program in U.S.; Official Cites Benefits to Inmates Link Kasper to Blast in Nashville School house NASHVILLE, Tenn. W —Police Chief Douglas Hosse says an FBI informant told htm he and segregationist John Kasper hid some dynamite three days before an explosion rocked a Aewly integrated school here. Hosse said Ch a r 1 e s Reed, brought to him by the FBI, said By WILLIAM L. EBERLINE DES MOINES M — Up at the State Training School for Boys at Eldora, they're training the youthful inmates to handle cars and trucks properly. It's the first such program in the United States installed at a state training school. And though it has been under way for only a little more than a year, it is regarded as one of the most valuable tools for making upstanding citizens of young men who once were in trouble with the law. George Callenius, a member ofj the State Board of Control, which 1 administers the training school along with the state's penal and mental institutions, says: "I honestly think this program is reducing the number of repeaters sentenced to the training school." Full-time Instructor A full-time instructor is provided by the state to teach the boys how to handle motor vehicles. The state furnishes, cars, light trucks and large semi-trailers. The state also maintains a driving course, complete with all types of curves, various kinds of soil so that the youthful drivers can learn how vehicles act on different surfaces, stop signs — in short, the works. There also is a large, well- equipped shop so that the young inmates can gain knowledge of auto mechanics. Why was this particular activity installed, instead of some other? Callenius explains: "A large percentage of the young men sentenced to the training school have been involved in some sort of offense involving au tomobiles. "It's only natural that at a cer tain age a boy has an intense de sire to drive a car. Many of them are too poor to own one and they yield to the temptation of taking somebody else^s automobile with out his permission. Too Much Car "Again, there is'the type of boy who comes from a higher income family and in his case it often is a Eldora See Page 7 Turks Again Warned On Syrian Move ANKARA. Turkey OP) — Two Russian Embassy attaches picked up for questioning on spy charges in Istanbul were released Saturday, informants said. Both are expected to be asked to leave Turkey within 48 hours. The two were identified by authorities in Istanbul as Aleksander Mikailovich Mar- lagin and Mikhail Lischin. Marlagin, according to unofficial sources, is believed to be one of the Soviet Union's top agents in Turkey. Both men are naval attaches at the Soviet Embassy here, Mar­ lagin was described as a Tu r k i s h-speaking specialist known to have kept close track of ship movements in the Bos­ porus Straits. By HAROLD K. MILKS MOSCOW (/rv-The Soviet Union again has warned Turkey that any military move against Syria might spread into world war. The warning was based on Soviet charges that the United States wants "to organize military intervention from without in Syria's internal affairs." Turkey, which, lies between Russia and Syria, was warned not to join in the alleged U. S. plans. The warning was contained in a personal letter from Soviet Premier Nikolai Bulganin to Turkish Premier Adnan Menderes. It was delivered in Ankara Wednesday and broadcast Friday night by Moscow radio. Accused by Gromyko The day before the Soviet letter was delivered, Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko accused Turkey of concentrating troops on the Syrian border. Turkey replied that its troops are only on normal maneuvers. In his first foreign policy de- Milks See Page 7 Kasper took some dynamite to Reed's home last Saturday. The two left with it, Hosse said Reed told him, and hid it in a vacant house, from which it later disappeared. Not Arrested Reed, who was not arrested, said he didn't know what became of it. Reed, about 40, was identified as a segregationist who had been associated with Kasper, and who visited grounds of integrated schools here Monday in an automobile bearing the letters "KKK." On Tuesday, a dynamite explosion damaged Hattie Cotton school, one of six grammar schools in which first graders were racially integrated this week under federal mandate. Police had not determined whether the dynamite which blasted the school and that mentioned by Reed were the same. Hosse said investigation would continue until the persons who actually planned and executed the bombing are found. Six men are in custody in connection with the blast but deny any part in it. Rewards in the dynamiting now total $6,000. Kasper, meanwhile, was expected to be behind bars—one way or another—for some time to come. He now is in Davidson County jail in lieu of $2,500 bond on a state charge of inciting to riot. The charge is based on anti-integra tion speeches he has made here recently. Police Ready If he posts the bond, city police say they'll claim him immediately on a second charge of vagrancy He was indicted Friday on the inciting to riot charge, and if convicted faces a sentence of 11 months and 29 days in the Davidson County Workhouse. And federal officials indicated they are taking steps to try to get his bond revoked.on his first criminal contempt conviction in the Clinton, Tenn., segregation case. This would send him to federal prison for a year. He is awaiting sentence on a second conviction. Both times he was convicted of criminal contempt on grounds he violated a federal injunction against interfering with racial integration of the high school at Clinton, 200 miles east of here. Kids Surprised At Having Fun With Mom, Dad DES MOINES Iff* — Recreation programs in Iowa are not only for children and teenagers but their parents as well. That was demonstrated Friday at workshop sessions of the annual Governor's Conference on Recreation in which programs discussed ranged from rock 'n roll dancing to handicraft for oldsters. Roy Harling of Sioux City, said the new youth center in his city has been expanded to include family recreation. Harling said some youngsters told him they thought of their parents as ones who "lay down the law" and were surprised to find they could have fun with mom and pa. Miss Johnson Given Extension On Firing Appeol ST. LOUIS un-Miss Edith M. Johnson has received a 30-day extension of a deadline for filing an appeal from her dismissal as postmaster at Des Moines. Kirby Smith, head of the appeals section of the regional Civil Service Commission, said Miss Johnson asked the extension to allow time to perfect her appeal. The Post Office Department said the dismissal was based on unsatisfactory service. Miss Johnson, 56, a Democrat, said she was fired for political reasons.

Poles Amazed by Amount of Corn AMES (#>—Top ranking officials from Poland arc amazed how Iowa can grow so much corn. The five-man Polish delegation studying Iowa agriculture was at Iowa State College Friday and one of the questions raised by the visitors was:. How can the United States use all the corn grown in this state? Members of the delegation went to Hampton Saturday to see top plowmen in action at the State Plowing Matches. 38 Killed on Iowa's Roads Since Aug. 31 By The Associated Press Iowa's motor vehicle toll so far during September has been running more than double the rate during the same period a year ago. Since Aug. 31, the stale has counted 38 highway fatalities as compared with 15 during the first 14 days of September, 1956, ac cording to Associated Press compilations.

But as of Saturday morning the 1957 toll had risen to 404—nine ahead of the 1956 count on Sept. 14 last year. Methodist- Bishop Urges Negro Branch Of Church Eliminated LOS 'ANGELES W) - Methodist Bishop Gerald H. Kennedy of Los Angeles urges the church to abolish its special administrative agency for its Negro churches because, he says, "it doesn't work, it is impractical and it is wrong." The bishop, formerly of Lincoln, Neb., appeared before a panel of the 70-member commission empowered by the 1956 Methodist general conference to make a four-year study of the strength and weakness of the denomination's regional structure. In addition to the Central Jurisdiction which administers Negro churches, the Methodist Church is divided into five geographical jurisdictions for administrative purposes. MARRIED , . .

General Assembly meeting in New York landed at London airport Saturday. The sleek airliner flew here from Moscow in 3 hours and 45 minutes. Gromyko and his wife headed the list of 51 passengers and crew aboard the craft. The plane is making its second trip to the United States. The first flight was made last week and took about 22 hours, including refueling stops. It took minor officials of the Soviet U.N. delegation to the United States. Saturday's flight, like the first one, is bound for McGuire Air Force Base in New Jersey with stops at Iceland and Gander, Nfld. The arrival of the Soviet airliner was greeted at London Airport as casually as that of a cross-channel commuter plane. Schoolteacher Says He Saw Much in China Californian Feels Great Deal Accomplished Toward Industrializing HONG KONG UP) - One of the young Americans who went on the forbidden tour of Red China said Saturday night the group was shown a great deal and permitted to go about freely during the 24 days he was there. Earl Williamson, 28 - year-old schoolteacher from Los Angeles, arrived in Hong Kong Saturday, Another of the 42 Americans, Shel by Tucker, of Pass Christian, Miss., was ordered out because he refused lo show his passport. Crosses Border Williamson walked across the the Chinese border after taking a train from Hankow, where he left the others in the American group. They continued on to Nanking. The mild mannered, soft spoken schoolteacher told newsmen his impressions were more or less good in China. "I also got the impression that a great deal has been done in economic construction toward industrialization," he said. He saw ste,el mills "only from train windows, but was told they are producing five million tons yearly. I was impressed by the rugged quality of China made trucks." Williamson said he heard people talking about the anti-rightist campaign but said he did not know what had happened to any of the rightists, who have been accused by the Pciping government of blocking Communist progress. "None have been put into prison," he said. He said he was skeptical of learning anything in Red China when he first began his trip "but il became perfectly clear China was interested in showing the Americans what China really is like." He said the Americans, in groups, were "shown a great deal and were allowed to walk the streets alone or with friends whenever they wished." Eager to Talk "Chinese students, high school and university, were eager to talk with them. Many spoke English. English and Russia is being taught in the schools. 1 saw no discontent among the students." ROADWAY DECK STEEL PUT INTO PLACE . . . Another important progress stage in the construction of the Mackinac Bridge was passed as the last piece of roadway deck steel was put in place on the suspension span.

(Grandpa) Harris was observing his 103rd birthday anniversary Sal urday at his farm home six miles south of B'ort Dodge. Harris, a native of Kentucky, was commissioned as an honorary Kentucky colonel on the occasion of his 99th birthday. Grandpa Harris and his wife came to Webster County in 1894 and settled on the farm where he still lives. He retired long ago from active farm work, however. A family celebration and picnic dinner will be held at the farm Sunday. Those present will include his four children and many of his 17 grandchildren, 31 great-grandchildren and 18 great-great-grandchildren as well as friends and neighbors. Grandpa Harris' mind is still sharp but he is handicapped somewhat by failing sight and hearing. He is up and around at least part of each day. By JOHN BAUSMAN I BONN, Germany </Pt—West Germany today winds up a vigorous election campaign that has focused primarily on Chancellor Konrad Adenauer and his strong pro-Western foreign policy.

IOWA TRAFFIC DEATHS ,, By The Associated Press Sept. 14, 1957 i 'Sept. 14, 1956 SOS .496 Trairr Crew Puts Out Fire After 2 Automobiles Crash SIOUX RAPIDS (#i — An auto crash and two freight trains were involved in an accident here Friday which turned the train crew into firemen. It all started when Walter and Paul Parks, southbound on Highway 71, were halted by an eastbound North Western freight train. F. E. Herrin, of Cherokee, came along behind them, couldn't stop on the highway made slippery by rain, and rammed the Parks car. Mrs. Herrin suffered severe face cuts when she was thrown against the windshield. About 10 minutes later crewmen on a westbound freight train tossed out a warning flare on the highway. It ignited gasoline spilled from the damaged cars. Because the freight train was blocking the highway, the Sioux Rapids fire department couldn't reach the scene to battle the fire. So the freight train crew put out the blaze with the train's fire fighting equipment. . Mrs. Herrin was taken to the Sioux Rapids hospital for treatment. Plymouth Youth, 18, Killed in Car Mishap PLYMOUTH W — Jerry Harrison, 18, of Plymouth, was killed in a one-car accident a mile south of here early Saturday. Cerro Gordo County Sheriff Jerry Allen said Harrison apparently fell asleep while driving home. The car swerved into the ditch alongside a county road, traveled 300 feet and hit four trees. Harrison's body was found by a motorist about 5 a.m. The youth's wrist watch wjis smashed and had stopped at 2 a.m. Sheriff Alien said Harrison 's car was "the worst torn up of any car I have aver seen ia an accident" NEW YORK (M-Mayor Robert F. Wagner has backed the judgment of the Board of Education in its dropping of "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" from approved public school textbook lists. Mark Twain's classic was removed recently from the textbook lists of elementary and junior high school. Some Negroes reportedly criticized the book as offensive to their race. While Wagner Friday reluctantly placed himself in agreement with the Board of Education's action, two members of the State Commission Against Discrimination called the board's action "ridiculous." Charles Abrams, Chairman of > proposals SCAD, said he "knew of no case where a classic could hurt a race." Elmer A. Carter, a member of the state body and a Negro, said: "No harm can be done to Negroes by Mark Twain." The New York Civil Liberties Union has sent a telegram to Supt. of Schools William Jansen calling the move "absurd." It asked that the ruling be rescinded immediately. The book can still be bought for school libraries, but can be distributed as a textbook only to high schools. ding for a third term in the first national elecMons in four years, contends that if the Socialists win NATO will disintegrate and West Germany might become a Soviet satellite. 15,000-Mile Campaign Adenauer has campaigned 15,000 miles on that .theme. Erich OUenhauer, the 56-year- old Socialist leader, has fought energetically to prove that he is as anti-Communist as Adenauer. But he wants West Germany to shift to a more neutral position with the hope that policy might help bring unification with East Germany. Voters will elect only their representatives in the West German Parliament, who in turn will elect a chancellor. Only voters in the home districts of Adenauer and OUenhauer will vote directly on them. The Christian Democratic Union, a coalition including Adenauer's party and smaller groups, controls about 51 per cent of the 492 seats in the lower house of Parliament. The Social Democrats have about 33.1 per cent. Since elections on Sept. 6, 1953, Adenauer has led West Germany into NATO and a rearmament program. The Socialists fought both moves. Effect on Alliance One of the sharpest conflicts of the campaign was over what effect a Socialist victory would have on the Western alliance. Adenauer repeatedly charged that Ollenhauer's foreign policy would wreck NATO, lead to the withdrawal of U. S. troops from Europe and open the gates for "the Red flood." OUenhauer stressed that he would remain faithful to the treaties binding West Germany to NATO. The country would not withdraw from NATO without the consent of other members, he said. But he talked of forming a European security system that might include a united Germany, the United States and Russia. The country's economic boom Is expected to be a big advantage for Adenauer. Statements to Be Issued By Both Later on Solution May Be Near In Integration Problem in Arkansas NEWPORT, R.I. Iff) — President Eisenhower and Arkansas Gov. Orval Faubus Saturday held what both sides termed a "very constructive" conference on Little Rock school integration troubles. "I think it was a very friendly and constructive meeting," White House Press Secretary James C. Hagerty told a news conference shortly after the parley. The meeting lasted a bit more than two hours, Faubus summed it up this way: "A very constructive conference.'* Statement Later Then the Arkansas governor got into a marine helicopter and headed for nearby Providence, R.I., where he arranged to issue a statement and' hold a news conference later in the day. Hagerty declined for the present to go beyond his characterization of the history making conference as friendly and constructive. But he said the President would issue a statement after Faubu* had put out his. Faubus arranged to meet newsmen in Providence at 2 p.m. EDT. After Saturday's parley at the vacation White House on Narragansett Bay the President walked to the street with Faubus to say goodby as the governor prepared to leave by helicopter from a nearby lawn. Photographers asked the two men to shake hands, and they did smilingly. Then the President took hold of Faubus* arm and told him: "Well, good luck to you and I hope it aU works out all right." Saturday's Elsenhower-Faubua conferente was precipitate*, ^jr tha governor's use of national guardsmen to bar 10 Negro students from attending classes at Little Rock's Central High School. The integration program had been ordered by the Federal Court . In calling out the troops Fau*^ bus. said he was doing sq to pre- * serve peace and order—and' not with the intention of blocking integration. Federal Proceedings s Earlier this week the federal government started injunctive proceedings against Faubus and Arkansas National Guard officers. On Wednesday Faubus asked Eisenhower for a conference, suggesting it would be a good Idea for them to "counsel together" as to the course Faubus should take. Eisenhower swiftly agreed to a conference and Saturday's meeting was then arranged. Faubus, an aide reported before the governor left Little Rock, came to the meeting to "confer, not capitulate." Eisenhower went into the conference having told the governor several days ago he was determined to uphold tha Federal Constitution by every legal means at his command. Hagerty declined after the con* ference to say anything more than that the two-hour and 10-minuta session had been friendly and constructive. But he did tell a news conference something about tha scene at the history-making meeting. It started in Eisenhower's tiny office at the vacation White House Conference ..... See Page 7 Committee Keeps Hoffa Guessing About Hearings WASHINGTON (* — The Senate Rackets Investigating Committee may hold further hearings soon into the affairs of James R. Hoffa, Midwest vice president of the Teamsters Union. But the committee is keeping Hoffa guessing—for the moment, at least—as to whether such hearings might come before the union's convention at which Hoffa hopes to be elected president of the Teamsters. The convention starts Sept. 30 in Miami. Committee Counsel Robert F. Kennedy said Friday he plans to meet with Chairman McCMlan (D-Ark) Sunday or Monday to discuss the committee's next step in the Hoffa case. McClellan said in Hot Springs, Ark., Friday, he will announce Monday whether the Hoffa hearings will be resumed immediately, or postponed until after Ihe Teamsters convention. He plans to return to Washington during the weekend. Kennedy, just back from Detroit where he spent eight days probing further into Hoffa's affairs, indicated to newsmen hearings might be set before the convention. But he avoided any direct replies to questions on that subject. II is possible that Rackets Committee might hold a new hearing on Hoffa without Hoffa being present. Kennedy said a decision would be made on this point during the weekend. Hold 7 to Trial In Baptism Battle LOGAN, W.Va. WI--A trial is scheduled Sept. 27 for seven members of the Baptist Church involved in a violent dispute over the rite of baptism.
