WASHINGTON <AP) — Congress today overrode President Eisenhower's veto of the second- try public works money bill—the first time this has been done in six years, eight months in the White House. Senate action put the bill over in the face of the President's objections, since the House had voted 280-121 to override. That was 12 votes more than the two-thirds margin required. In the Senate the count was 7223. or 8 more than the required two-thirds.

WASHINGTON (AP) - The House voted today to override 1 President Eisenhower's veto of i the second public works appro- ! priation bill. I Until today, the House had nev- : er voted to override an Eisenhower veto. I The roll call vote was 280-121, U> votes more than needed to override. A great shout went up at the announcement of the vote, marking, the first time since Eisenhower took office that the House has mustered the necessary two-thirds vote to pass legislation clespit the President's rejection of it. The vole sends the $1,185,309.- C93 measure to the Senate where prompt action is expected. If the Senate also votes to override, it would be the first of I4tt Eisenhower vetoes in more than six years that has been overridden. The President vetoed the bill because it contained money for more than (i0 projects which are not included in his budget program. He vetoed an earlier bill for the same reason but the House last week sustained that veto by a one-vote margin. On today's roll call. 20 Republicans and 2(i0 Democrats voted j to override. Five Democrats and, 116 Republicans voted to sustain; the veto. 1 The House voted soon after Eisenhower's veto message was read. Garsts Come to Carroll to Dine, Get Little Peace DES MOINES — We have just been through a tragic weekend on Iowa highways with 21 deaths recorded for the Labor Day weekend. I visited with Donald Statton about Iowa's safety program and here arc the results of that interview. Question: How could these fatal accidents have been prevented? Answer: There would probably be a different answer for each accident. Most of the answers would concern something a driver did or failed to do that took him over the margin of safety. In nearly every case, the accidents could have been prevented by at least one of the drivers involved. In addition, I think we might have had a better record if we could have put more enforcement on the highways. As it was. we had every patrolman on duty. We even dismissed the highway patrol recruit training school or. Monday in order to get the instructors on the highways, and v\e called out the drivers license examiners. We had all 275 of our men on the roads, but there were not enough. The patrol is simply outnumbered. We need more men, Question: What can Iowans do to be better drivers? Answer: We can begin by giving the law the voluntary obedience it deserves. I'm afraid most of us think of the traffic laws as a sort of minor code that needn't be taken too seriously. The Labor Day weekend record shows how wrong that attitude is. At the very least, drivers should consider the traffic laws as guide lines within which they can operate with comparative safety. Question: What can the state do to have a better driving record? Answer: That depends on just how far the driving public is willing to go in additional limitations on driving freedom and in additional expenditures. The public willing, more restrictive laws and a patrol large enough to enforce them would help. An extension of limited access highways would help; more realistic legislation curbing drunken drivers is needed; and stiff er, more uniform penalties by the courts for all driving offenses. These things and many others would improve our driving record, but they cannot be accomplished by departmental decree. The public must give us these tools through the legislature. Question: What are the principle factors responsible for traffic accidents" Answer: I think the simple volume of traffic is the basic factor responsible for accidents. Congested traffic moves the driver closer to the possibility of an accident, restricts his area of movement, reduces his margin of error. At the same time, we have the driver trying to move through this thickening volume of traffic with some speed, we have his often casual regard for traffic laws, his strange feeling of immunity from accidents. The environment of traffic becomes worse daily but we do not become better drivers. Question: Have you considered Statton See Page 8 Just to "get away from it all for awhile," Mr. and Mrs. Roswell iBob> Garst of Coon Rapids came to Carroll Wednesday night to have dinner. The Garst farm is a focal point in the forthcoming visit to the U.S. by Russia's premier, Nikita Khrushchev.

"It doesn't bother me so much, but it is a bit irritating for Mrs. Garst, I think." Mr. Garst, who knows Khrushchev personally and has visited him in Russia, issued the invitation which is bringing the world figure to Carroll County Sept. 23 to see how American farms produce so bountifully. He has also sold seed corn to the Russian government. Khrushchev has evidenced intense interest in Mr. Garst's farming methods a n d would like to adapt some of them to boost his country's agricultural output. The story about preparations for the Khrushchev visit "is not so much what we are doing but rather what the communications companies arc doing" to speed the news of the Carroll County visit to the world. Mr. Garst pointed out. Cable All Over Place "They have cable all over the place and equipment installed in almost every available spot. These outfits are really making plans to keep the world informed on what transpires while the Khrushchev party is at Coon Rapids." The various communication media feel that the visit of Khrushchev to the Garst farm and his inspection of the modern farming I operations of Mr. Garst will be! the outstanding event on the tour J cf the United States.

Seven Killed, 10 Hurt as Train Hits School Bus! Carro11 Home MOUNTAIN LAKE PARK, MD. i APi—A St. Louis - to - Baltimore passenger train rammed into a loaded school bus in mountainous western Maryland today, killing seven of the 26 children on the bus. Eight to ten other children were reported seriously hurt. The Baltimore and Ohio's eastbound Diplomat rammed the bus at 8:30 a.m. ' EOT) at a grade crossing marked by a flashing light and bell. The signals were operating at the time, the railroad said. Bus Stalls The bus driver. Leroy Campbell, 49, told authorities that after the bus stalled he opened the door and tried to get the children out. After a half-dozen or so scrambled out the door, the rest jammed the doorway, blocking it Then the engine hit the bus broadside, knocking the vehicle down the track on its side 40 to 50 feet. Campbell, who owned the bus, has driven the same route for four years He has a safe driving record with the county school system for more than 20 years. No one seemed to know what caused the bus to stall on the crossing. Campbell and all the injured were rushed to an Oakland, Md., hospital, about four miles away, by every available ambulance, station wagon and car which could be summoned quickly. Mountain Lake Park is approximately 40 miles from Cumberland and about 180 miles from Baltimore Three ol the seven dead were identified as Roy O. Hinklc Jr., Lee Hoffman and Nancy Lee Harvey. On Way to School The school children, ranging in ages from 8 to 14 were on their way to Southern High and Dennett Elementary schools at Oakland, county seat of westernmost Garrett County. In the message, Eisenhower suggested that Congress enact a stop-gap measure to continue public works projects now under way. Late last month. Eisenhower vetoed th original money bill on the ground it contained 07 projects he had not included in his budget. He said then, and repcat- "will ultimately cost our taxpay- cd today, that those projects err more than 800 million dollars." By JACK BELL WASHINGTON <AP> — The threat of a blowup over civil rights legislation caused leaders to abandon hope today of adjourning Congress this week. Instead, the Senate started planning for a session early Monday hoping that, unless the civil rights bomb explodes, one more long day can complete the year's legislative work. The threat of still further delays rested on the possibility of a strong Southern battle against extending the life of the Civil Rights Commission, which issued this week a report many Southerners didn't like. Counler-Drivc Any such move almost certainly would bring on a counter-drive by advocates of strong civil rights legislation to enact extensive new laws. With the fuse hissing, no one could say definitely that the bomb would explode, but none dismissed the possibility. Other major pieces of the year's legislative pattern started falling quickly into place. The House was ready to accept a third-try housing bill which the Senate passed 86-7 Wednesday and which had assurance of administration approval. President Eisenhower has successfully vetoed two previous housing bills, which he called inflationary. Showdown Assured A showdown was assured during the day on Eisenhower's veto o! a second public works money bill which reached him only Wednesday. The House adjourned before it could njceive the message Eisenhower had prepared, Congress ...... See Page 9 Looting at Red Chinese, Indians Trade Bitter Notes By WATSON S. SIMS NEW DELHI, India (AP) — A bitter exchange of notes between India and Red China was laid before Parliament here today and Prime Minister Nehru said Premier Chou En-lai's latest letter 1 adds to the gravity of the border j crisis. | "Step by step their policy has i become more rigid," Nehru said. Each nation accused the other of aggression and each demanded that the other withdraw its forces from frontier areas whose ownership is in dispute. India offered one concession — to make the | Longjti area a temporary no \ man's land pending negotiation. I Renew Claims ' But both sides renewed their claims to Longju, the isolated post' which Red Chinese troops seized 1 nearly two weeks ago in a gun-' light with Indian frontier guards. Crisis See Pago 8 The state fire marshal's office has been requested to investigate the circumstances of the fire that destroyed Harry Gangstad's one- room shack near the city dump Tuesday night, Robert S. Bruner, county attorney, said Thursday. "We feel it was a little too much of a coincidence that fire broke out in his shack shortly before midnight while he was being held in the city jail pending disposition of charges of shooting at four boys with a rifle Monday afternoon," the county attorney said. Law enforcement officials are also investigating evidence of looting of the premises after the firo department left the scene about , one o'clock Wednesday morning. Gangstad, 60, is being held in jail in lieu of $1,000 bond after being bound to the grand jury on a charge of assault with intent to inflict bodfly injury. Betty Wurzer, Dedham, Heads New Nurse Class Betty Wurzer of Dedham was elected president of the new class of the Anlonian School of Practical Nursing at a class meeting in the nurses residence at St. Anthony Hospital Wednesday afternoon. Richard O'Tool of Carroll was chosen as the vice president; Sr. M. Drusilla of LaCrosse, Wis..'secretary, and Pearl Wegman of Breda, treasurer. The new school year began officially Tuesday morning after a week of orientation. U. S.

Jan White, a senior, was named as president; Roger Kaspersen, a senior, vice president; and Ann Thomas, a junior, secretary. By JOHN SCALI WASHINGTON 'AP'-The United States has fashioned the strongest security shield ever to protect Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev frum potential assassins, demonstrators, hecklers and crackpots. Up to 15.'>(JO policemen, plain- elothesmen, National Guardsmen and government security agents will join loiees in a massive, carefully coordinated plan to watch over the Sov iet dictator every foot of the way. Abuut 2,500 will be deployed and waiting along the route into Washington Tuesday when Khrushchev steps off a giant TU114 turboprop let liner at nearby Andrews Air Force Base to begin his 13-day coast to coast tour. | About a dozen Soviet secret police, led by Security Chief Nicolai I Zakharov, arc to be part of this , unprecedented security network, j A selected number will be allowed I to pack guns. i Five of these Soviet security agents already have inspected the I route Khrushchev will follow in j his swing through six cities and i are reported satisfied with ar- rangements for protecting their ! chief. | The security arrangements, checked and double checked in painstaking detail, include protection not only for Khrushchev and his family but also for the 108 other Soviets, including newsmen, who are to accompany him. These precautions have been adopted partly because of a long held fear that Khrushchev's visit would arouse bitter anti-Communist demonstrations along the way particularly from Hungarian and other eastern European refugee groups. Thus far, however, these fears have proved groundless. Surprisingly few threats against Khrushchev's life have been picked up.
