Kuker, general chair man of the St. Anthony Home fo the Aged Building Fund, announc ed Tuesday that the Francisca Sisters of Perpetual Adoration, wh operate St. Anthony Hospital here have pledged $50,000 to the cam paign to raise funds for an ol folks home in this area. "This is especially gratifying,' he said, in view of the fact tha the Franciscan Sisters have not on ly agreed to administer the horn when it is built but also donate^ land for site. I feel that this gif is one of the finest expressions o community interest I have eve seen." An Inspiration He added, "This gift should serve as an inspiration to every citizen in our community and give us cause to go out and get the additiona support which will provide the funds for St. Anthony Home for the Aged. With such support we wil" not fail. Dr. Kuker said he would like to clarify what "possibly is resulting in a misunderstanding concerning our campaign." "We are out to raise $850,000 for the construction of an old folk; home adjacent to St. Anthony Hos pital. "The St. Anthony Home for the Aged is a facility to be made available to the Carroll communi ty and will incorporate the facili ties of a private residential section as well as a convalescent nursing home section for use of the area a: a whole and will be open to all re ligious faiths. The private section will house residents on an endowment basis to give the type of facilities and environment requestec by the endower. The type of units available for endowment are as fol lows: a single room with half bath for single occupancy, a $5,000 endowment: a large room with bath which may be used either as a sin gle room for single occupancy, or for double occupancy as, for ex ample, man and wife, an $8,500 en dowment; and a suite of two rooms (living room, bedroom and bath) which may be occupied by one in dividual or man and wife, a $12»000 endowment." Endowments Available Endowments will be available to people who are able to purchase a room or suite or those individuals who are now living in their own home and are in need of the facilities immediately and who could, by liquidating certain assets, qualify for an endowment and would prefer this method rather than to take advantage of the community units available. "The convalescent nursing retirement section is the remainder of the structure which will be available to the entire community, with donors receiving preference over those who have made no contribution," Dr. Kuker pointed out.

(AP)— An aircraft executive today predicted 5,000-mile-an-hour airliner capable of landing and taking off vertically will be developed in the foreseeable future. Hall L. Hibbard, senior vice president of Lockheed Aircraft Corp., made th.e forecast in a lecture at Delft, the Netherlands. His speech was released by his company here. Pie said the aircraft might resemble a skin diver's foot flipper, or a finned electric shaver. He said further study is necessary to determine whether it will have wings.

Weather A Year Ago— It was clear and warm a year ago today. 78 degrees was the day's high temperature, and 55, the low. to all occupants, whether in the private section or the community section of the building. Infirmary care consists of temporary isolation care for individuals in the home who may have such minor illnesses as a contagious cold or are in need of nursing assistance because of infirmities brought on by age or certan types of incapacities due to sickness or injury. These would necessarily be of the'chronic type which would require that the in- divdual be separated from the reg- ular endowment section. For more serious injuries, illnesses or surgical procedures requiring more detailed nursing and medical care, these people would be transferred to the hospital. While individuals are confined in the infirmary section or the hospital their daily room charges would be dropped and the infirmary rates or hospital rates would prevail during an absence from their normal quarters. Daily Rate Scale Dr. Kuker explained that a tenta- i live daily rate scale has been es- i tablished using the present cost of j living index as a basis for setting ! up these rates. These will be sub- i ject to minor changes depending I on the cost of living index at the j time of actual operation of the home. In general the accomodations in elude: daily maid service, eleva tor, ordinary laundry service, desk service for mail, messages, anc packages. Also, telephones will be available in rooms if desired anc Proposed Home for the Aged- A drawing by Architect Leo Daly of Omaha shows the location of the proposed new St. Anthony Home for the aged east of St. Anthony Hospital. Grounds for the building and a gift of $50,000 to the building fund have been contributed by the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration who operate the hospital. The new building, to be constructed at a cost of about $850,000, will be divided into a private residential section in which accommodations are available on an endowment basis and a convalescent nursing home available to the entire community. It will have lounge rooms, recreational facilities, a rehabilitation center and a hobby shop. Reds Keep Moon Vigil Name Acting School Head At Scranton SCRANTON — The appointment of John Clarkin, high school principal, as acting superintendent of Scranton Consolidated Schools in place of Glenn Frenzen, resigned, was confirmed at the school office Tuesday. Mr. Frenzen has made no announcement of his future plans but t is believed that he will remain n Scranton for the present. Meanwhile, the acting superln- uendent delined to comment on the resignation of Mrs. Harold Frease, second grade teacher, of the suspension of her husband, Harold 'rease, a school bus driver.

S. intelligence officer today challenged Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev's peaceful co-existence theme, saying the Communists organized and armed several thousand Laotian guerrillas in North Viet Nam. Gen. C. P. Cabell, deputy director of the Central Intelligence Agency, also cited Soviet and Red Chinese moves in Africa in saying that the Communists are actively trying to subvert the free world. "To the free peoples of the West, the bold evidence of Communist aggression is not very palatable," Cabell saind in a speech prepared for a National Guard Assn. conference. "Calling this 'peaceful coexistence' does not make much sense to me." Peaceful coexistence is a Communist doctrine which Khrushchev stressed time and again during his recent U. S. visit. The Soviet Premier declared that under its peaceful coexistence policy, Moscow avoids interfering with the internal affairs of other countries. BREAKS SHOULDER Lawrence J. Meyer of Carroll, 14, suffered a broken left shoulder in football practice Monday night and was admitted to St. Anthony hospital at 5:50 p.m. He is the son of Mr. and Mrs. William H.

Peterson Oct. 77 Rocket May Get Picture of Dark Side JODRELL BANK, England (AP) — Confusing radio signals prevented British observers from deciding immediately whether the Soviet moon rocket made its scheduled pass across the far side of the moon today. The Jodrell Bank radio telescope, the world's largest, picked up signals at 8:58 a.m. EST. At 9:05 a.m. EST the first Jodrell Bank signals faded on one wavelength—but continued on another. This period of interruption coincided with the estimate by Soviet scic'iitists for the space station to, start its journey around the moon. Jodrell Bank listeners said the signals were different from the ones previously recorded. The signals could be heard clearly above interference noises. They were higher pitched than before. One observer commented "thoy appear to be just going mad." Dr. John Davies, in charge of (he observations, tape - recorded the signals for closer study later. The Rev. Allan M. Peterson will )e installed pastor of First Pres- yterian Church, here in ceremon- es Sunday evening, Oct. 11, at the hurch. The Rev. Mr. Peterson had lis first service as local pastor last unday. Members of the Presbytery of forthwest Iowa will come to the ocal church for the rites, includ- ng four out-of-town pastors who vi 11 have active parts. Dr. R. N. MUler of Sioux City, tated clerk of the presbytery, will reside, and the Rev. Carl W. Beck- lan of Memorial Presbyterian "hurch of Cherokee, will deliver he sermon. Charge to the pastor will be given by the Rev. Frank > Mease of the Vail and Westsicle churches, and the charge to the congregation by the Rev. Peter De- Beer of Odebolt.

All church members and friends of the church are invited to the installation serVice and the reception following. By PRESTON GROVER MOSCOW (AP) — Soviet scientists kept intent vigil at a receiving "mechanical brain" today as the time arrived for their little flying observatory to begin its historic first reports about the far side of the moon. By Soviet reckoning, the 614- pound Lunik III, laden with automatic recording and transmitting instruments, was to soar within 4,350 miles of the moon and .start its biggest mission at 9 a. m. EST. No Immediate Word That "moon hour" passed with no immediate word flashed to the eager public that the electronic data was being received by the "mechanical brain," a complicated, interlinked computing system of listening posts and scientific centers. However, there was .no doubt here in the Soviet capital that all was proceeding on schedule. At least a limited revelation of what the Lunik sees is expected to be disclosed within the next 24 hours. Even if not detailed, it may at least say that man's new space- eye has registered a view of the hitherto unseen part of the moon. Soviet scientists said the "complete automatic observatory" — as they termed the space traveler — would begin sending back electronic data immediately. They said the central Soviet computing' Rocket See Page 9 TV service on request.

Ike Invokes T-H Law \n Dock Workers Strike PALM SPRINGS, Calif. (AP)— President Eisenhower today invoked the Taft-Hartley Law in the docks strike, opening the way for government to seek an 80-day back-to-work court order. The President, acting at his vacation headquarters, declared in an executive order that the six- day strike which has tied up shipping piers from Maine to Texas would "imperil the national health and safety" if permitted to continue. The shutdown, he added, also Steel Talks Collapse; Ike Likely to Act By JOHN MOODY PITTSBURGH 'AP)—The United Steelworkers Union, saying it las earned a fair settlement, pledged today to continue the 84- day strike "until justice is done." The union's 170-member wage policy committee issued a statement reaffirming the union's rejection of an industry settlement offer classed by the union as "totally inadequate." Break Down David J. McDonald, union pres- dent, said no further meetings svere scheduled with the industry. Talks collapsed Monday night. McDonald proposed a meeting with top executives of five leading' steel firms, but they did not reply mmediately.

Kasperbauer, 19, of Templeton was injured early Tuesday when the truck he was driving was in a sideswipe collision with a station wagon pulling a trailer at the top of a rise near Templeton. -Kasperbauer was taken first to the office of Dr. John Hornberger in Manning.

No Steel Action Eisenhower took no legal action on the 84-day-old steel strike, despite the new collapse of negotiations. The President said regarding that nationwide shutdown, however, that the dispute between management and labor "seems to be getting down more and more to a trial of strength between two groups with the American public :he greatest loser." In expressing that view for Eisenhower, White House Press ! Secretary James C. Hagerty said "urther: "I might add that the President has no intention of see- ng the American public be the greatest loser." Hagerty was asked whether Eisenhower will invoke the Taft- Hartley Act in the steel strike, too,, unless there is a swift settlement. I certainly am not going to anticipate any action by the Pres- dent one way or the other," he •eplied. "I simply repeat what the President has said—that free col- ective bargaining is on trial, and he parties should stay in negotiation until they reach an agreement." Names Fact-Finders As for the dock strike, which las tied up Atlantic and Gulf 'oast shipping, Eisenhower named three-man fact-finding board as the first step in invocation of the j Taft-Hartley Act. He instructed I the members to report to him by j Saturday. The board makes no > recommendation regarding settlement. When Eisenhower gets the board's report, he then can direct | the Justice Department to seek an! 80-day injunction in U.S. Dist. i Court.

Bishop Escapes After Communists Guns Fire VIENNA (APi—A U. S. Roman Catholic missionary had a close brush with death from Communist machine guns at the Iron Curtain between Austria and Communist Hungary, the Catholic news agency KNA reported Tuesday. Bishop Leo Arkfehl, of Unite, Neb., was Liking pictures Sunday, near the Austrian town Heiligen- krcuz, of the heavily guarded "death .strip" a mine-infested zone of eleciric barbed wire and machine gun emplacements along the Austrian-Hungarian frontier. When he focused his camera at a nearby guard tower, the Communists opened fire, KNA said. The 47-year-old clergyman and his two aides escaped by throwing themselves on ihe ground. Then they dashed into a nearby wood on the Austrian side. "We sure got a close look at the Communists," the bishop told reporters. "When they opened up, we dropped to the ground. We waited until the machine gunner stopped, then we dashed back zig-zag. Thank God, we made it." Bishop Arkfeld heads the Calh- olic mission at Wewak in New Guinea. He came to Austria to receive a U. S. - built Cessna plane presented by Austrian Cath* ulie youth organizations. He plans to return to the United States in a few weeks to- attend the golden wedding anniversary ot his parents, Mr. and Mrs. George Arkfeld of Panama, Iowa.
