DAILY 5 P.M. SATURDAY • CIRCULATION DEPT. ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH Ike to End Vacation Sunday ftv M4KVI\ I.. ARROHSMfTH NEW-PORT. R. I. (AP>— President Eisenhower will end his seaside vacation Sunday evening and fly back to Washington. The President and his wife came to Newport July 7. They interrupted their stay for six days last week to attend the Republican convention in Chicago and visit the First Lady's ailing mother. Mrs. John S. Doud, in Denver. Colo. The President returns to Washington the night before reconvening of the Senate. The House returns Aug. 15. Elsenhower got in some work on government business early this morning and then went to Newport Country Club for a round of golf. He was to get a report later in the day on North Atlantic Treaty forces in Europe from their supreme commander. U.S. Gen. Lauris Norstad. The President arranged an afternoon conference at the summer White House with Norslad, who holds the NATO job from which Eisenhower resigned in 1952 to run for president. Eisenhower was the first commander of the NATO troops in Europe. After the session with Norstad the President has on his schedule a conference with two National Security aides flying in from Washington. Tuesday night Eisenhower made public a message urging Korean students to guard their country's freedom and be constantly on the alert against what he termed the new and deadly colonialism of international communism. He sent the message to university students who tried unsuccessfully to see and talk to him when he visited Seoul, capital of South Korea, in June. Report New Move Against Negro Gang CHICAGO (AP) - More grand jury action reportedly has been taken against the Bandoliers, a Negro teen-age gang the state's attorney's office describes as "vicious animals." -•Frank Ferlic, first assistant state's attorney, said 11 gang members reportedly were named Tuesday in seven true bills charging strong arm robbery and armed robbery. i Police began a crackdown on the gang last week after four of its members were charged with raping two pregnant women and beating their husbands. Ferlic said the gang members, | linked to a series of assaults and I robberies, should be surrounded by prison walls. And he said he might hold seven of those reportedly named until they are 17 so they can be sent to a penitentiary. "The Illinois Legislature," he said, "has been tardy in recognizing the severity of crimes committed by these teen-agers. "In today's urban atmosphere of vicious youth gangs, conditions demand that the Legislature make i allowance for putting these crimi- ;nals under maximum security." The oldest of the youths reportedly named by the grand jury is 19, the youngest 13. jVeu'S of Stocks Some Demand For Missiles NEW YORK fAP>—Some demand for aircraft and missile stocks developed in an otherwise listless, irregular stock market late this afternoon. Activity among this group was u-centuated by the gradual slowdown of trading for the list as a whole. Volume for the day was estimated at 2,400.000 shares compared with 2.090,000 Tuesday, which was the lowest total since ast Columbus Day. A block of 7,000 Boeing shares traded at 32. up l 1 ^, and the issue ield at about the same level, drumman was ahead in about the same range and North American Aviation around a point. Douglas, of nearly a point, was the only ratler in the group. Buying was credited to Wall Street talk of more defense spend- ng and the belief in some quarters outlays would go up regard- ess of which party wins the November election. Motors continu'-d to lag and ihemicals mostly were down, too. Scattered strength bolstered unities and rails, but most groups vere well scrambled with plusses and minuses. MGM was up nearly 2 while Ra dio Corp. moved ahead more than point and Air Reduction held to an advance of more than 2. Amer- can Telephone and DuPont turned lower and Union Carbide still was down about 2 points. U.S. government bonds were lower, corporates mixed. St. Louis Charter Amendments Shaped ST. LOUIS (AP)-City Charter amendments to raise the maximum pay of the mayor of St. Louis and city employes were approved by voters in Tuesday's election but by scant margins.
