(iW -The White House Monday accused a group of top Democrats of "trying to play politics" with the school integration controversy in Little Rock, Ark. The accusation was fired at the President's vacation headquarters by his press secretary, James C. Hagerty. He was commenting on an assertion by 15 members of the 24-member Democratic Adi- sory Council that Eisenhower "failed to use the prestige and power of his office against defiance of law" at Little Rock. "I think it would be funny if it were not so pathetic," Hagerty said, "to see the Democratic Advisory Council trying to play politics with the, situation in Little Bock. "The. President is concerned with solutions and not with political speeches." Hagerty was asked whether Eisenhower had read about the Democratic attack on him and had instructed Hagerty to put out the statement he did. Saw Statement The press secretary replied only that the President Vhas seen the statement." • Hagerty declined any direct comment on Arkansas Gov. Orval Faubus' assertion Sunday night that national guardsmen would continue on duty Monday at Little Rock's Central High School. Hagerty was asked whether the White House is concerned about the fact the troops have not been withdrawn. Replying, he alluded to Eisenhower's long conference with* Faubus here Saturday, and said: "I think I would have to point out to you the President's statement of Saturday (after v the conference) where he said he was sure ifis the desire of the governor, not only to observe the supreme law of the land, but to use, the influence of his office in the orderly process of those plans." Used to Bar Negroes In a television talk Sunday night, Faubus did say it is "foreseeable" that the guards may be withdrawn later in the week. They are being used to bar Negroes from attending classes at the school. On Saturday neither Eisenhower nor Faubus' said anything about when or whether the troops would be withdrawn. Faubus told newsmen that was a problem he would have to tackle when he got back to Little Rock. The President conferred for more than an hour at the Newport White House Monday morning with Robert Cutler, national security aide who flew from Washington. Dr. Hawks Institute Speaker— Calls Parent-Teacher Talks Good for Child Small talk between parents and teachers is important* in educating the "whole child," Dr. Glenn R. Hawks, head of the department of child development of Iowa State College, Ames, told about 300 public and parochial s ch o o 1 Couple Beats Odds With 12 Daughters By SIDNEY C. MOODY JR. MORRISTOWN, N.J. (A*- You think you've beaten the odds? Shot a hole in one? Drawn a perfect bridge hand or run the four- minute mile? Then consider the William Patrick Bestons. Today Beston will go to Memorial Hospital to bring home his wife and their 12th child—and 12th daughter—born Thursday. Oddsmakers don't make book on such a rarity, and doctors said only that the chances of having an even dozen children of the same sex are "slimmer than slim." Never Doubted But Beston knew better. He never doubted for a minute that the baby would be a girl. "After the first four or five children, we never even thought of having a boy. We just worried | what we'd name the girl." Naming gets harder each time. Names already taken were Patricia, Eileen, Regina, Carol, Joann, Gertrude, Dolores, Betty Lou, Catherine and Levinia. (The first daughter died in infancy.) ' After thinking a day, the Bestons called the newest Madonna Grace. "Patricia is 12 and the oldest, but we have birthdays around the clock and it's not easy to keep the ages straight. Just figure that Daughters ..... See Page 9 The Weather CARROLL FORECAST Fair and not quite so cool Monday night, low 42-45. Partly cloudy and warmer Tuesday, high about 75.

Disagree on Bed Fit for a P r i n c e LONDON MV-What kind of a bed is fit for a prince? British bed manufacturers disagree about the one which Prince Charles, 8-year-old son of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip, will sleep on at boarding school. It's an iron bedstead with a horsehair mattress over steel slats. ' "A bit Spartan." Kenneth Reid, secretary of the National Bedding Federation, told newsmen. "It's not the bedding industry's idea of comfort." Reid said manufacturers had long been concerned over what they called "antiquated beds" in Britain's schools. But one manufacturer, asking not to be identified, said he was on the side of the old bedstead. "I firmly believe that young boys are better off and happier on a mattress on firm slats," he said. "Boys do not appreciate soft mattresses until they are about 21. For the prince to sleep on a hard bed will do him good." teachers attending the annual Carroll County Teachers Institute at Carroll Public School, Monday. Dr. Hawks was keynote speaker at the opening session, Monday morning, in the high school auditorium. . Theme of the institute was "Improving Parent-Teacher Communication As a Means of Fostering Pupil Development." Meetings Important Dr. Hawks said that casual parent-teacher conferences on the street or in church are as important as classroom meetings because through such meetings parents learn that "teachers are people" and teachers learn details of family life which are essential in understanding the child. "Fortunately, the average child is not a schizophrenic," said Dr. Hawks. "He is not one person at home and another pe r s o n at school. It's important that teachers should understand the whole child." Measuring his ability in arithmetic or reading is not enough, he declared. It's important that his progress should be evaluated as a whole. Helping children to understand adults is also part of the problem and parent - teacher conferences are valuable in this respect. Objectives Not Understood "Too often," said Dr. Hawks, "the real objectives of education go over the heads of school children. They do not understand why they are assigned problems in arithmetic or other subjects." He cited the instance of a 13 year old girl who inquired at the library for a book on understanding adults and found that there was no such book available, so she wrote one which has now been published under the title "A Handy Guide to Grown Ups." "After all," he said, "e very adult has been a cbild but no child Dr. Hawks , , . v . See Page 9 * Hold Shower For Cleo, an Expectant Hippo KANSAS CITY (fiV-Cleo. the expectant hippopotamus, was guest of honor Sunday at one of the biggest baby showers ever held in these, parts. Between 4,000 and 5,000, most of them children, gathered at the Swope Park zoo for the affair. Cleo waddled out of her pool and watched the opening of gifts- apples, carrots, cabbage and 21 bales of hay with red and white ribbons on each bale. Baby bottles Were the five gallon economy size, with a one gallon size for "night feedings." Cleo gazed impassively until two men held up a hippopotamus diaper—an eight foot square of canvas. Then she opened her cavernous mouth wide as possible. "Look, she's laughing," shouted a little boy. She probably was. Cleo couldn't have been yawning at her own party because William T. A. Cully, zoo director, says she is very refined. Governor to Head Parade of Bands Here Gov. Herschel C.

Atty. Gen. Norman Erbe and Asst. Atty. Gen. Oscar Straus issued the opinion at the request of Lee Chandler, state superintendent of banking. Chandler said national bank examiners had ruled the contract form prepared by attorneys for the Iowa Automobile Dealers Assn., is not negotiable and that the Iowa Bankers Assn., had asked him to settle the question. Comply With New Law The contract form. Chandler said, was designed tb comply with Iowa's new "full disclosure" law. The law, passed by the 1957 Legislature, requires auto dealers to provide prospective purchasers with full information on tradein allowance, interest rates, financing charges and the like. The ruling that the contracts are non-negotiable apparently means that in their present form they can't be sold by an auto dealer to a financing agency. The attorney general's opinion cited a section of law which says, "an instrument payable upon a contingency is not negotiable and the happening of the event does not cure the defect." Notes Provision The opinion noted that the contract form now being used by! most Iowa dealers provides as follows: "If holder ever considers the indebtedness hereunder insecure . then in any such cases the entire unpaid time balance of the pur chase price shall, without notice to the buyer, forthwith become immediately due and payable and the holder may, without previous demand or notice, take immediate possession of said car wherever found, with or without any process of law." The opinion said: "The . foregoing quoted provision in my opinion is violative of fhis statute and renders the note nonnegotiable. "Reserving to the holder of a note an uncontrolled power to determine the existence of a default of security on which an acceleration of maturity is provided for, the time of payment is rendered uncertain." "FLYING CRANE" ... By the end of its six-year development program in 1963, United States Army Aviation hopes to have a "flying crane" helicopter that will carry 12-lon loads for 50 miles or more. Artist's conception above shows what the "crane" might look like, A series of ducted fans similar to those used on the present flying platforms would be linked together to provide greater lifting capacity. Hour of Decision Nearer— Reduced Guard on Duty at Little Rock School LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AV-National guardsmen reported for duty at Central High School again Monday amid increasing reports that Gov. Orval Faubus may withdraw them entirely before the end of the week. No comment on the reports Mercury Falls To 33 at Sibley By The Associated Press The lowest Iowa temperature so far this season was recorded early Monday when the mercury dropped to 33 degrees at Sibley in extreme northwest Iowa.

The Pilot, copilot and eight passengers were killed. Thirteen passengers and the hostess were injured and hospitalized. Doctors immediately placed at least five on the danger list. The plane was only half a mile from the New Bedford Municipal Airport and was preparing to make a scheduled instrument landing when it crashed through trees and swamp growth and cracked up on a tiny knoll. Help Delayed Two airport employes said they heard the plane crash at 8:50 p.m., but it was nearly three hours before the first rescue team could reach the scene. The only access to the spot was by foot. Fire fighters' ladders were used as Plane Crash .... See Page 10 Iowa Motorcyclist Killed in Ohio Race COLUMBUS, Ohio (»—Dennis R. Harris, 19, Cedar Rapids, was killed Sunday in a collision during a motorcycle race at the Ohio State Fairgrounds raceway. Harris was thrown from his motorcycle when it was bumped by another cycle on a turn, authorities said. A third cycle, driven by Dan Nealigh of Greenville, Ohio, struck Harris. < Harris was dead on arrival at a hospital.

Approximately 30 guardsmen took stations at the school when classes resumed at the high school. After reporting, some of them went to a nearby drugstore for coffee and soft drinks. A week ago 250 soldiers surrounded the school. No Negroes attempted to approach the big school building that has become a symbol of the great clash between the federal government and Faubus. Between 25 and 30 adults gathered on the sidewalk across the street. In a good-natured mood, they joked with reporters. In a television interview Sunday night, Faubus said it is "foreseeable" that the guards could be withdrawn this week. He also said "there were certain areas of agreement" that developed in his conference Satur day at Newport, R.I., with President Eisenhower. Still Bar Negroes But he still says Negro students will not be permitted to enroll in Lhe high school until a condition of "tranquility" exists in the city. He will be the judge of when that moment has come, he said in the TV talk. The prevailing belief in Little Rock today—and it is not supported by any solid information from the governor's mansion—is that Faubus will remove the Guard within a few days, perhaps Wednesday or Thursday. He has been summoned to appear in U.S. District Court Friday. There, in all probability, he will Integration See Page 9 In Nationwide Strike Called By Installers Little Effect on Local Did Service; Only Urgent Toll Calls Taken By The Associated Press Picket lines were set up in about a dozen Iowa communities Monday in connection with the nationwide strike of Western Electric Co. ^equipment installers. (In Carroll, Manager How* ard B. Bockhaus said there has been no Interruption of service except for some long distance calls through the h>* cal dial exchange. A similar strike several years ago halted work on installation of dial equipment here.) There are 420 equipment installers in Iowa who belong to the local which is on strike. In addition there are about 4,500 other Communications Workers union members in Iowa—including 1,100 in Local 7102 in Des Moines—who work as operators, office and plant employes. They are not on strike. Donald J. Hume, Des Moines, chief steward of the striking local, said other CWA members throughout Iowa were respecting picket lines. Pickets were reported on duty in Des Moines, Sioux City, Waterloo, Mason City, Cedar Rapids, Iowa City, Boone, Davenport, Bettendorf, Storm Lake and Red Oak. At Mason City, at mid-morning, the three pickets on duty left their posts and other workers returned to their jobs there. Hume said in Des Moines that his office had not received a report on this and had no immediate explanation for it.

UK- One of the biggest atomic blasts of the 1957 test series flashed across the desert sky at 5:50 a.m. Monday. It is believed to have had the power equivalent of about 40,000 tons of TNT. A deep orange fireball, touched with pink and purple, flared over Yucca Flat. The mushroom cloud so familiar in the tests rose quickly to about 15,000 feet. It was feathery and ice could be seen forming at the top. This 20th shot of the series, code- named Newton, was a device exploded from a balloon tethered 1,500 feet above the test site. The explosion was seen as a bluish flash in. Los Angeles, 300 miles away. The Atomic Energy Commission did not give the energy yield of the blast, except to say it was above nominal, or more than the equivalent of 20,000 tons of TNT. Experienced newsmen, observer figurad it was in the range of 30,000 to 40,000 tons and probably nearer the latter. Twenty-five aircraft participated in Monday's test on data-collecting and training missions hut there was no military participation on the ground. The ARC said the test included civil effects experiments and was considered a diagnostic detonation. This was the last test of this series in which newsmen will be permitted to be present on the site. In subsequent tests, with at least twojmore expected, they can get no nearer than a mountain 40 miles away. Fifteen minutes after the blast the cloud formation began drifting away in an easterly direction. A postponed tower shot, named Whitney, has now been tentatively rescheduled for Tuesday morning. An underground explosion, designed to give earthquake experts valuable data and perhaps the last test of the series, is scheduled fox Wednesday^ Railroad Worker Killed, Marshalltown MARSHALLTOWN WB-John C.
