(Sheriff's Office Photo) Seek Tighter Control Over Drunken Drivers DES MOINES (AP) — State Safety Commissioner Donald Slal- ton said Wednesday he has asked the Iowa- Highway Patrol to develop a special enforcement program to tighten control over drunken drivers on state highways. Station said he took the action after discovering license revocations for drunken driving have declined 25 per cent in Iowa during the past seven years. "There has been a decrease every year since 1952," Station said. "I can't believe it is because Separated Twins Face Crucial Time PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — The newly separalecl Slubblefield Siamese twins were alive loday, bul a medical spokesman said il was "nip and luck" for Ihe Ihree- monlh-old girls. "They are gelling along as well as can be expecled," said a spokesman for Ihe Universily of Oregon Medical School Hospital, where the five-hour operation was performed Tuesday. The operation was termed a success but doctors said the 24 to 48 hours following surgery would be the most crucial period. The delicate operation was performed by a learn of 17. As ex- pecled, they found thai the twins had a common breastplale, and a liver bridge. The twins — named Jeanett Kim and Dennett Linn — were born face to face, and were joined at the abdomen. The parents are Mr. and Mrs. .lames Stubblefield of Parma, Idaho. there are fewer drinking drivers on our highways. "With regislrations, travel and enforcement increasing every year, you would expect license revocations for operating a molor vehicle while intoxicated to increase also," he said. "The problem of the drinking driver is big enough to get special attention," Stalton said. "Records indicate at least 30 per cent of the drivers involved in fatal accidents in Iowa had been drinking." Stallon said there were 2,802 revocations of licenses for drunken driving in 1952 and 2,081 in 1958.

Bayard Man Urges Road Tax Reform DES MOINES (AP)—The president of the League of Iowa Municipalities said Wednesday the most pressing need for reform in the laws of Iowa is in the field of distribution of road use tax money. Kenneth Robinson of Bayard, speaking at the opening session of. the league's meeting, said important steps already have been taken in the Legislature's creation of a Roads Study Committee. "This committee has a myriad of fields in which it is empowered and required to investigate," Robinson said. "However, everyone knows that this committee was formed primarily for the purpose of studying the distribution of the road use tax money." Recommendations Robinson, in a prepared statement, also asked that: Surveys be made into county and city spending of stale and federal funds with specific conclusions as to whether or not there is sufficient supervision over expenditure of these funds. Highway costs per vehicle mile be ascertained, and the information used to determine projected costs of future construction and maintenance. A complete study be made concerning the advisability of dividing the stale inlo .dislricls and splitting road money into districls. A survey be made showing the percenlage of license fees paid by urban and rural vehicle owners. A study be made to determine if Iowa speed zones are realistic. Robinson also said a tentative budget of $189,000 for the coming year has been approved by the league. Urge Higher Dues The league's "big city group" got off lo an early start in the meeting Tuesday night by recommending higher dues to permit the hiring of another assistant to the cxeculive director. Steel Talks Hopelessly Stalemated Union Will Fight Against Use of T-H Injunction PITTSBURGH, Pa. (API-United Steelworkers Presidenl David J. McDonald sent his Wage Policy Commiltee home today. He said steel slrike settlement prospects appeared hopeless. McDonald indicated he felt the next step will be for President Eisenhower to invoke the Taft- Hartley Act to end the strike for an 80-day period. But McDonald said the union will fight any such court injunction in the courts. But he pledged the union, failing to upset an injunction, would "obey the law of the land." No Hope The union chief said there was nothing in the steel negotiations picture to "indicate hope for settlement in the near future." In slrongly opposing use of Taft- Hartley, McDonald again called for appointment by Eisenhower of a public fact-finding board to sift the strike issues and recommend a settlement solution. Eisenhower has expressed distaste for such a board bul has said he would name one if the industry joined the union in endorsing the idea. The industry has indicated any White House intervention should be the Taft-Hartley procedure. Under Taft-Harlley a board of inquiry would be confined to making a factual report on the situation and would be barred from making any settlement proposals. Dispersal of the union's 170-man Wage Policy Committee underlined the union's disbelief in a negotiated strike solution. Neither was there any ray of optimism on the industry side. Fruitless Session Six top industry executives, led by Chairman Roger M. Blough of U.S. Steel Corp., met with McDonald in a fruitless session Tuesday night. The union leader dismissed the decision - making wage policy group after a 25-minute session in which he reported on his "summit" meeting Tuesday night with six top executives of the steel industry.

Gov. Wesley Powell said Tuesday he is prepared to support Sen, Styles Bridges (R-NH) as a favorite son candidate. That came as chilling news for supporters who have been trying to get New York Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller into the state's presidential next March. primary There is speculation that if the senator were to let his name go into the primary, there would not be much room left for either Rockefeller or Vice President Richard M. Nixon to enter the contest. Since Bridges is tabbed as an out-and-out Nixon supporter, a favorite son delegation could be expected to throw its support to the vice president party convention. at the July On the other hand, Nixon's friends were obviously disappointed by Powell's fresh declaration at a news conference that he is maintaining neutrality between Nixon and Rockefeller. Asked to evaluate their qualifications for the presidential nom- inaliqn the governor said he regards them so far as equal.

MOSCOW (AP)—Lunik III, the Soviet Union's newest space traveler, apparently was continu ing on its planned orbit today after rounding the moon, but the Soviets so far have not said what it found on the other side. Word of what the flying laboratory observed on the face of the moon never seen by man may come after Lunik's next transmission of data, scheduled from 9 o 10 a.m. Eastern Standard Time oday. A Soviet announcement Tues- lay night said the cosmic rocket reach a point 7,000 kilometers— ,349.6 miles — from the moon at 9:16 a.m. Eastern Standard ime Tuesday and then "kept its movement turning around the moon." By noon, the announcement onlinued, Ihe rocket was 15,000 violation of an agreement to extend for 15 days the contract which expired Sept. 30. Louis Waldman, attorney for the International Longshoremen's Association got in first with the argument about job elimination. Automation Issue He told the panel in a statement that the employers wanted a free hand in automation of cargo handling methods. In the last? three years, Waldman said, automation has "threatened to deprive ILA members of substantial numbers of jobs." Following Waldman, Alexander P. Chopin, chairman of the New York Shipping Assn. Inc., told the fact-finders his organization and the ILA agreed lo Ihe contract extension last Wednesday. Within two or Ihree hours Ihereafter, he said, New York Local 791 voted to defy the exlension pact. He quoled William V. Bradley, ILA presidenl, as slating lhat the strike was in support of Gulf port locals which had no such extension agreement. The waterfront employers originally withheld any wage offer but finally came up wilh proposals for a Ihree-year conlract with money increases of 20 cents an hour in Ihe first year, 5 cenls in the second year, and 5 cents in the third year. The union was to allocate the sum among higher wages, pension and welfare contributions, holidays and vacations. But the offer was conditioned, Waldman said, on union agreement lo a cut in the size of long- shore working gangs, below the present 20-man figure, and agreement that the employers could institute any new operations they desired. Union Demands The union's demands, Waldman said, include a 40 cent wage increase; a guarantee of more work daily; a guaranteed pension of ?100 a month, compared with what he said is a present pension of $65; an additional 6-cent hourly contribution to the welfare fund; an additional 6-cent hourly contribution to Ihe welfare fund; and 6 cenls hourly additional to be contributed to the fund for clinics and hospitals.
