U.S. Allies Briefed On Nikita Talb Summit', Foreign Chiefs Meeting May Be Result By JOHN M. HIGHTOWER WASHINGTON (AP)—The United States gave NATO ambassadors a 40-minute report today on the Eisenhower-Khrushchev talks. One ranking envoy said a summit conference or foreign ministers meeting on Berlin will very likely result from the talks. French Ambassador Herve Al- phand told reporters that as he understands the results of the Camp David discussions between the President and Soviet Premier Nikita S. Khrushchev, "There was no change in the rights" of the Allied powers in West Berlin, but there was a change in that the Soviet threat to West Berlin was removed. He added: "Anyway we hope so." Skepticism, Hope The French envoy's wait-and- see attitude reflected a general air of skepticism mixed with hope in diplomatic quarters here. British Ambassador Sir Harold Caccia said he was "very satisfied" with what he called a frank account of the big two talks. Alphand was asked whether he thinks the new round of negotiations will go into a foreign ministers meeting or summit conference. He said that is "very likely, but that's something to be discussed among the American, British and French governments." He hoped consultations would start soon. The State Department announced that the regular meeting of the North Atlantic Council in Paris Wednesday will discuss the Eisenhower - Khrushchev talks, presumably after getting a report from the U.S. delegation there. This is an early move in the process of consultation which may lead to a summit conference later this year or early in 1960. A series of discussions over the next few weeks will determine whether, when and where a summit conference should be held or alternatively whether the Big Four foreign ministers should meet again soon to reopen negotiations on Berlin. Initial Briefing The British, French and West Briefing See Page 9 Storm Lashes S.C. Coast * * • * Hurricane Damages Historic Structures By ROBERT MCHUGH CHARLESTON, S. C. (API- Hurricane Gracie smashed across the South Carolina shoreline today venting its full fury on this historic port. city. With the storm's center and its peak winds of 125 miles an hour reported slightly southwest of Charleston, high winds uprooted trees, tore down power and communication lines, and unroofed buildings. Historic structures were damaged. High Tides Mountainous waves pounded beach installations from Savannah, Ga., to Myrtle Beach, S. C. High tides ranging up to 11 feet above normal sent waist - deep water coursing through streets here and in nearby communities. Highways and streets were blocked by flood water, fallen trees, tangled power lines and smashed buildings. Metal signs sailed along almost deserted streets. Docks and smaller harbor installations disappeared. An unidentified motorist was killed when his car overturned several times during the storm 10 miles west of Beaufort. S. C. There were no other immediate reports of deaths or serious injuries. Moving Inland The U.S. Weather Bureau at noon said the storm was moving inland at about 14 miles an hour. Hurricane force winds moved inland along with torrential rains and headed in the general direction of Charlotte, N.C. The Weather Bureau warned that rains would range up to 10 and 15 inches and might cause President Signs Foreign Aid Bill WASHINGTON (AP) — President Eisenhower has signed the $3,225,813,000 foreign aid bill. It also extends the life of the Civil Rights Commission for two years. With its signing, Eisenhower completed action on the last of the bills Congress sent him before adjourning Sept. 15. The amount of aid was $704,182,000 less than the President had asked for military and economic help to friendly or allied countries. The Civil Rights Commission extension—the only action Congress took in that field this year— also was far short of a seven- point civil rights program Eisenhower suggested to Congress last January. The catch-all bill, passed in the final hours of the session, also includes $500,000 to operate the Civil Rights Commission, 359 millions for the highway trust fund, two millions for the Labor Department to cover the increased administrative costs of the new labor controls bill, and other minor appropriations.

This is the state's share of a 30 million dollar allocation under the Defense Education Act. Colleges are required to contribute a sum equal to one-ninth of .the amount put up by the federal government. Under the program, the individual schools administer the loan program at the local level and allocate the funds to qualified applicants. The loans are especially designed to encourage students who wish to continue their education in the sciences and mathematics. Incentives are provided for students who enter teaching. In Iowa, the largest allocation of $100,088 goes to Iowa State University with $89,483 set aside for the State University of Iowa. The law requires that each borrower be a fulltime undergraduate 1 or graduate student, that he be in need of the amount of his loan to pursue his studies and, in the opinion of the school, capable of maintaining good standing in his chosen courses. A student may borrow for college expenses in one year a sum not exceeding $1,000 and during his entire course in higher education an amount not exceeding $5,000. He must sign a note for the loan, which must be repayed within a 10-year period with three per cent interest. Other Iowa colleges and the amount allocated to each for the year which ends next June 30 include: Briar Cliff College, $4,273; Buena Vista College, $8,120; Central College, $8,720; Clarinda Junior College, $785; Coe College, $19,960; College of Osteopathic Medicine and Surgery, Des Moines, $8,088; Cornell College, $19,620.

World Needs a Population Plan: Huxley NEW YORK (AP)-Sir Julian Huxley, author and biologist, said today a world population policy is necessary to prevent erosion of the world's resources. "Man soon will be driven to plan a cooperative project aimed at securing greater fulfillment for more human beings," Sir Julian said at a symposium. "For this, he will need a vast program of research on human possibilities and methods for realizing them more fully." Others on Panel Other panelists included Robert Frost, Pulitzer Prize poet; Dr. Hermann J. Muller, Nobel Prize zoologist; Devereux Josephs, chairman of the President's Committee on Education Beyond the High School; and Dr. Ashley Mon tagu, anthropologist and social scientist. Lord Bertrand Russell, Nobel Priae philosopher, participated by videotape and short-wave radio from London. Milton E. Eisenhower, President of the John Hopkins University, was chairman. They discussed how man can' meet the problems of coming generations. Frost conceded that science offers the possibility ol controlled evolution, but he predicted test tubes would never supplant what lie termed "passionate prefer ence." Love, Money Reigns "As far into the future as I can see with my eyes shut, people are still pairing for love and money," Frost said. Lord Bertrand warned that the next war would either wipe out all of civilization or return man to primitive barbarism. Dr. Montagu also saw man's survival hinged on eliminating war but urged it be done through world wide education. Joseph, former chairman of the New York Life Insurance Co., listed the use of leisure time as one of several conflicts facing man from the rapid advance of science. Military Ball Is Discontinued A decision to discontinue the Military Ball, which has been an annual event at Carroll High School for the past 20 years, was made at a special meeting of the Band Boosters Association Monday night in the high school auditorium. Instead of the Military Ball, a band party will be given for members of the Carroll High School Band. Details will be worked out at the next regular Band Boosters meeting which will be held Monday evening, October 12. The 20th annual Military Ball was held November 15, 1958. It was changed from spring until fall to avoid conflicts with other school events occurring in the spring of the year. Last night's meeting, which was called especially to decide the ball question, was well attended by a largo number of Band Boosters. All other business was deferred until the regular meeting date. Soviet Bloc Walks Out on Tibet Speech By MAX HARRELSON UNITED NATIONS, N. Y. (API- Representatives of the Soviet bloc staged a mass walkout of the U.N. General Assembly today when Nationalist China condemned alleged Ike to Fly to Desert Area to Shake Cold Washington (AP) — President Eisenhower, fighting a cold, plans to fly to the desert country of southern California Wednesday for an eight-day stay. The chief executive will be the house guest of an old friend, Washington business executive George E. Allen, at La Quinta, Calif., 20 miles from Palm Springs. Allen and Eisenhower are frequent golfing and bridge companions, sometimes share vacations, and own farms a couple of miles apart at Gettysburg," Pa. White House press secretary James C. Hagerty said the President hopes to get away late Wednesday afternoon, flying by jet to the Palm Springs airport The plan calls for arrival there by 5 or 6 p.m. (PST) after a flight of 5 or 5 l -i hours. Eisenhower picked up a cold on his recent trip to Europe and has been trying ever since to shake it off. He told a news conference Monday he hoped to get away for a few days in a desert climate The President's voice is husky, and Hagerty said he has a little cough. But the sore throat Eisenhower had at one time is gone, Hagerty said. This will bj the President's second visit to the Palm Springs area. He spent a week there in February 1954. Nelson, Wartime .Production Boss, Dies LOS ANGELES (AP) — Donald M. Nelson, World War II production boss, died today of a cerebral hemorrhage. He was 70. Bandit Gets 2 Stores' Receipts SIOUX CITY (AP) — A well- dressed bandit held up the Younker-Davidson store Monday night and forced two parttime employes to fill his briefcase with the day's receipts. Receipts from the Younker-Martin store also were taken. John E. Murphy, superintendent for both stores, said Tuesday it would be impossible to determine the amount stolen until a check was made of cash registers and the cash the gunman missed. An unofficial estimate of the amount taken was $20,000. This total possibly could contain a number of checks. The bandit apparently was in the department store when it closed at 9 p.m., then held up Duane Curl, 22, as Curl was taking the day's receipts to the third- floor audit room. Curl said the gunman told him to fill the briefcase, then bound 1 him. As the bandit was leaving, Frank Devine, 17, entered the room with receipts from the Younker-Martin store. Devine also was bound. Curl broke loose 30 minutes later and called police, who searched the five-story building on the chance that the bandit had not left. Curl described the gunman as "a well-dressed businessman, and he was not wearing a mask." INJURED IN GAME Dennis G. Flack, 13, son of Mr. and Mrs. Gerald F. Flack of Coon Rapids, sustained a mild brain concussion in a junior high football game between Coon Rapids and Guthrie Center Monday afternoon and was brought to St. Anthony Hospital Monday evening.

Chinese Communist atrocities in Tibet. AH" members ol the Soviet delegation and its eight satellites remained out of the Assembly chamber during the entire speech of Ambassador T. F. Tsiang, who pledged his government's support for a full U. N. debate on the Tibet, question. Tsiang boycotted the U. N. speech of Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev Sept. 18. The Soviet bloc in turn boycotted Tsiang's speech last week opposing any U. N. action on the China representation issue. Tsiang spoke as preparations were made for a meeting of the Assembly's 21-nation Steering Committee to consider an Irish- Malayan proposal to place the Tibet question on the agenda of the current session. Ireland and Malaya requested Monday night that the Tibetan question be added to the Assembly's agenda. The Irish expressed confidence the committee would approve despite opposition from the Communists, neutralist and some colonial nations. They feel only the Reds will actually vote against a debate. A U.S. spokesman said earlier the United States would welcome U.N. debate on the Tibetan question. A confidential memorandum accompanying the request was said to cite a message from the Dalai Lama, fugitive ruler of Tibet, declaring that the Chinese Reds are trying to wipe out the Tibetan people. If the steering committee approves the request for debate, the Irish have ready a resolution calling for respect for the "fundamental human rights of the Tibetan people and restoration of their civ il and religious liberties." Neutralist nations oppose a de bate on Tibet because they feel it will only heighten East-West ten sions.

Heavy rains were falling in eastern South Carolina and southeast- tern North Carolina and were expected to move northward. Flooding during past hurricanes frequently has caused greater loss of life and damage than the powerful wind. As Gracie hit the mainland, another hurricane, named Hannah, was plodding along at 15 miles an hour 500 miles southeast of Bermuda. Its highest winds were estimated at 85 miles an hour. Gordon Dunn, chief of the Miami Weather Bureau, said it was too early to tell if Hannah would follow Grade's path and hit the east coast. "We'll be extremely fortunate if she doesn't," he said. Warnings Fly The Weather Bureau declared an emergency hurricane warning from Savannah to Wilmington, N. C, with gale warnings from Brunswick, Ga., to Morehead City, N. C. Extremely high tides were forecast from Charleston to Wilmington ranging up to»ll feet above normal. The Weather Bureau said hurricane winds continued to extend some 75 miles north of the hurricane eye and about 50 miles south of it. Gale winds of 40 miles an hour range outward as far as 200 miles. With the urgent warnings of the Weather Bureau, Red Cross and other officials, most residents of exposed areas have evacuated. Most schools along the coast dismissed class e.s and were opened as shelters for those driven from their homes. In Charleston, famous St. Michael's Episcopal Church, built in 1761 and once the worship place of George Washington, lost part of its steeple. The dock at the Ft. Sumter Hotel where tours depart for historic Ft. Sumter all but disappeared. The Weather Bureau's radar was knocked out of commission. About a third of the city was without power.
