Carroll Daily Times Herald Vol. 90—No. 209 Carroll, Iowa, Friday, September 4, 1959—Eight Pages Evening for 35 Cents Per Week 7e Copy Add 17 News, Picture Wire Circuits; Build 100-Ft. TV Tower- Carroll, Coon Rapids Communication* Centers for Khrushchev's Visit Carroll and Coon Rapids will become world-wide communications centers Wednesday, Sept. 23, when Russia's Premier Nikita Khrushchev visits the farm of Roswell (Bob) Gar.st near Coon Rapids. News developments at Coon Rapids will be flashed to the world through the Northwestern Bell telephone dial exchange in Carroll. The Carroll plant will be connected to the Coon Rapids facilities of the lowa-lllinois Telephone Co. Howard B. Bockhaus, Carroll manager, disclosed Friday that 17 additional telephone circuits will be provided from Coon Rapids through the Carroll exchange. These circuits will carry Teletype, Wirephoto and special radio hookups. Others will be full period pri-1 vate lines. I A 100-foot steel micro-wave tow-' or is being erected on a hill back i of Mr. Garsl's farm. This lower will send signals direct to another lo- j cated near Adair, providing the i world with a television glimpse of j flic proceedings at Coon Rapids. ! The telescoping temporary tower is being put up by a crew under the direction of Jim Williams of Car-' roll. Virtually all the major news services and radio and TV networks have ordered the facilities. The costs, which Mr. Bockhaus said will be "tremendous" will be borne by the services. The Coon Rapids telephone company will provide the link from the Garsl farm to its central offices, from whence, vk the Carroll exchange, the news will be distributed throughout the world. Wester n Electric installers are putting in equipment as it ar- i rives. Much of the equipment is being brought here by Air Express from points all over the country," Mr Bockhaus said. Northwestern- Bell is providing standby personnel all around for the one day the facilities will be in use. It is backing up the service with emergency power and the line to Carroll will be patrolled constantly while in use. "This is one of the biggest jobs we've ever been called on to perform," Mr. Bockhaus said. "Because it is so important, we are taking extraordinary precautions to see that nothing goes wrong Wc have allowed no room for error in our planning." He added that the installers have promised to turn over the facilities Sept. 11 so that "we'll have time for making final tests and adjustments." Meanwhile. Western Union re-' gional officers have been in Carroll i and west central Iowa making ar- 1 rangement to handle extra traffic during the Khrushchev trip. Batteries of sending machines, and operators are on a standby basis at Omaha, Charles Knoblauch, local manager reported. Sheriff Al Thorup has already been contacted by security officers of the U.S. State Department. He and Deputy Sheriff Leonard Hinze expect to be at Coon Rapids to assist in providing security for the Khrushchev entourage. Some of the news correspondents and commentators are expected to make headquarters in Car roll. At the Villa, reservations have been received for two or three staff writers from the Chicago Daily News and for a similar number from Sioux Falls, S.D., radio and TV stations. DES MOINES <AP) - The expensive hotel suite where Soviet Premier Khrushchev will sleep while in Des Moines this month has been occupied by some famous persons. The late Secretary of State John Foster Dulles stayed there. It's present occupants are Roy Rogers, the cowboy star, and his family, here to perform at the Iowa State Fair. It's the $tia-a-day "presidential suite" in the Hotel Fort Des Moines where the three top floors have been reserved for visiting Russians and representatives of the State Department during Khrushchev's stopover Sept. 22-23. The two living ex-Presidents, Herbert Hoover and Harry Truman have stayed in the suite. Alf Landon of Kansas, Avercll Hamman of New York. Francis Cardinal Spellman and Eleanor Roosevelt had been other guests. The suite has two bedrooms, two baths, a living room, dining room and kitchenette, a grand piano and some fancy accessorial I appointments. Hotel Manager Joe Whalen said everything is in readiness for Khrushchev, Whalen was chiefly concerned' about the menu for a dinner to be given for the Soviet leader in the ballroom of the hotel. He thought of.prime ribs of beef. But since Khrushchev will leave here Sept. 23 and will be entertained at dinners in Los Angeles and San Francisco the preceding two nights Whalen wondered whether the official parties might br ved beef three nights in a row. He called hotel managers in the West Coast cities to see if they could get together on menus. Accuses Red Neighbor of Intervening' Laos Appeals for U.N. Troops By The Associated Press | Laos appealed to the United Nations today for troops to bolster its defense against Communist biitlalions knifing deep into that little Southeast Asian kingdom. It accused Communist North Viet Nam of intervening on the side of Red rebels with troops and artillery. The Laotian delegation at the L.N. delivered the urgent appeal, addressed to U.N. Secretary General Dag Hammarskjold. who returns Sunday from a Latin American tour. It is questionable what the U.N. 1 could do. or what a majority of the members of the U.N. would favor. Job Limited The lightly armed emergency force in the Middle East is the only U.N. military force in being. Its job is limited to watching the I'.gyptian-Israeli frontier and adjacent territory. j Any appeal first would go to the Security Council, where the Soviet Union has the power of veto. An i appeal vetoed there could wind up in the General Assembly, which meets Sept. 15. Long debate prob-| ably would precede any action in the assembly. Laos" request that the United Nations send troops to its aid took Washington officials by sur- priee. Key authorities hurried to staff meetings to determine what further action might be taken. Getting U.S. Aid The tiny kingdom is already receiving more than 30 million dollars worth of U.S. aid a year, , and the rale of shipment was re- ! cently stepped up. But sending in , foreign troops is something else. U.S. authorities said no official word had been given them of Laos' U.N. request. If the U.N. should approve intervention, the volume and type of U.S. aid might change sharply. This would not necessarily mean thai American forces would be involved. U.S.. forces nearest Laos are in Formosa, the Nationalist Chinese stronghold. Some air and naval units are based in the Philippines. There has been a general tendency among U.S. officials to discount any direct connection between the forthcoming visit to the Western Leaders Meet- Pictured in front of the American Embassy in Paris are (from left) Secy, of Stale Christian Hrrter; Italian Premier Antonio Segni, President Eisenhower, and Italian Foreign .Minister Giu seppe Pella.

Given to Editors United States by Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev and the Communist activity in Southeast Asia. Khrushchev's line toward the United States has been one of comparative sweetness and light since his visit was announced. The Communists of Asia have been setting off trouble at one place or another for a long time. Militarily, the royal army in Laos was suffering setbacks today. Arm Civilians At Sam Neua, the northern headquarters, the royal army commander armed civilians and called for reinforcements to stop Communists massing for an assault on the town. The commander, Brig. Gen. Amkha Soukhavong, said the raid assault could be expected in 10 days and the situation "is not pretty." His only avenue of supply is by air.

A campaign to rid .Iowa newsstands of alleged obscene literature is gaining favorable support, but not without some criticism. Forts-two "girlie" magazines were ordered off newsstands by Ally. Gen. Norman Erbe this week. I Delinquency Factor "In my opinion lhe .se publications which are printed solely for the purpose of distributing filth and smut are a contributing factor to juvenile delinquency," he said. A number of Iowa communities immediately started complying. with the directive, an Associated) Press survey showed. Dealers at Marshalltovvn. Mason City. Creston. Des Moines, Cedar Rapids and Council Bluffs quickly emptied their shelves of publications appearing on Erbe's list. Erbe said the situation wasn't brought to his attention until the past legislative session "and I was too busy at that time to do anything about it." Contacted by liruner He said that Carroll County Attorney Boh Brunei - later came to him and asked that something be done to clean up the newsstands. Lrbe said he then started legal research into the matter and asked the State Bureau of Criminal Investigation to get him evidence, i "I made the proposed cleanup top priority in my office," Erbe said. j Whether Erbe's campaign will last probably will be decided by - the courts later.

Mary L. De Marco of neighboring Revere, will join her in a series of exotic dances on the back lawn. Mrs. Ferragnmo says she likes to dance in her backyard in one of the 24 swim suits she owns. The neighbors — the women neighbors, that is — complained to police that her performances , are something less than cultural, j Police investigated and found, they reported, that there was nothing wrong with Mrs. Ferragamo's attire or her desire to dance un: der the stars. | Her mother will wear a fish-net . bathing suit, she said. !

If the United Nations should approve Laos' plea to intervene the volume and type of this aid might change sharply, but still would not necessarily mean American forces would be Involved. For one thing, this would depend on the plan adopted by the U.N. In the Suez crisis, where U.N. forces were sent to enforce peace in the disputed area, the United States was requested to provide only supply and transportation support. American participation in that operation included the airlifting troops and supplies from other countries which were selected as the U.N. force. U.S. forces nearest to Laos—if the U.N. should request a contribution and if this government agreed to commitment of forces in a jungle type operation—are in Taiwan, with some air and naval forces based in the Philippines. The present American help for Laos is confined to shipping material from U.S. bases in the central and western Pacific, with a small proportion of it being for- svarded from continental U.S. depots. The equipment is being withdrawn from stocks of all three services—the Army, Navy and Air Force—but is essentially for use by ground forces. It includes clothing and foot wear, vehicles which can be used in the rudimentary roads of Laos' jungles, small arms and ammunition and field radio equipment needed by Laotian forces to maintain contact with widely dispersed units in forward jungle positions. First shipments were started toward Laos more than a week ago. Report Questions Civil War Status of Williams HOUSTON, Tex. 'Al Williams is too old and >—Walter i chives showed Williams to be 103 feeble to | rather than 116 as Williams No Paper on Labor Day The Daily Times Herald Wiil Not Be Published on Labor Day, Monday, September 7. comment on a report questioning his status as the only surviving veteran of the Civil War armies, his daughter says. Willie Mae Bowles, with whom Williams has made his home for several years, said "he doesn't understand anything these days'." Williams has been virtually blind and deaf for several years, lie was critically ill most of last month from the after-effects of a j bout with pneumonia earlier this year. Scripps-Hovvard writer Lowell K Bridsvell wrote Thursday that a search of government records indicated Williams was too young at the time of the Civil War to have served as he claimed, and thai the unit to which he said he was assigned was broken up before the date Williams said he enlisted. Bridwell said census records , and a check of the National Ar- claimed. The newsman said this would have made Williams 8 years old during the latter days of the Civil War. Williams, in an affidavit filed when he applied for a Confederate pension in 1932, said he was a forage master with Hood's Texas Brigade for 11 months near the end of the war. Bridwell said Hood's Brigade was disbanded "long before Williams believes he enlisted." The Scripps-Howard writer, commenting that Williams "is a Confederate veteran only In his memory-clouded mind," said the last surviving veteran of the war was John Sailing of Slant, Va., who died last March 16. "I wish so much that we had written things down and kept rec- jords over the years," Mrs, Bowles said, "but wo didn't and It" U too I late now to talk to him about such I things./'
