Morrison, Carroll, shown here with a 250-pound black bear. Dr. Morrison killed tlie bear while on a hunting and fishing trip at Sioux Narrows, Ontario, with Dr. Waller Anneberg, Max Reed and John Juergens, all of Carroll. Dr. Morrison shot the bear with a British .303 Enfield at a range of about 50 yards. "I shot him from a boat as he was coming out of the water and one shot through the neck was sufficient for the kill," Dr. Morrison said. The party of Carroll hunters had gone out in search of deer but did not get any shots at deer. They saw a huge moose but did not have a license to hunt moose. Duck hunting was good and they shot their limits of Mallards and Blue Bills and they also caught their limit of Walleyes while fishing. (G. Edwin Robb Photo) Board Opens Hearings On Long Steel Strike By STANLEY MEISLER WASHINGTON (AP) — A fact- finding board opens hearings today on the nation's longest steel strike, hoping to produce a settlement rather than just some advice for President Eisenhower. Acting under the Taft-Hartley law, the President appointed the three-man board to recommend whether he should seek a federal court injunction to stop the walkout for 80 days.

Taylor, who does not think much of the Taft-Hartley law, said Sunday that he and his colleagues would use the hearings to try to help management and labor reach a voluntary agreement in the 90- day-old strike. "I think it's oiu» responsibility to do everything within the limits of our authority to settle this dispute," said Taylor, known as a skilled arbiter of labor-management disputes. He is professor of business at the University of Pennsylvania and was chairman of the War Labor Board during World War II. Help from the panel was welcomed by David J. McDonald, president of the United Steelworkers Union. If the panel can help achieve an agreement, he said, "we will be most happy." Argument Expected Officially the board must determine whether continuation of the strike would cause a national emergency. In the open hearings, the steel companies were expected to argue that it would. The union was expected to argue the opposite. The union argument apparently would follow these lines: 1. The non-union plants, 15 per cent of the industry, have continued to operate and can supply the nation's defense needs. 2. Although the strike has caused Steel See Page 9 Hunter and Bear Battle In Tree Top GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) — A railway machinist and part-time hunting guide is recovering from a mauling by a grizzly bear. Bob Wilkinson, 41, of Great Falls suffered a lacerated heel and wrenched knee last Thursday in a tree-top struggle with the bear in a wilderness area of northwestern Montana. Wilkinson was tracking elk when he encountered three grizzlies. Two of 'the animals moved away when they saw Wilkinson, but the other — estimated to weigh 450 pounds—turned. Wilkinson turned too — for the nearest tree. The boar first started to leave the scene, but returned before Wilkinson was more than five feet off the ground. The bear gained rapidly on Wilkinson and clawed off his boots, "With boots gone," said Wilkinson, "I could get a good hold and kept climbing until I ran out of tree." The tree was 15 feet tall. "I sat there in the tree top and looked down at the grizzly," Wilkinson said Sunday night from a hospital bed, "thinking I had him licked. Then he. started up the trunk after me." The grizzly grabbed one of Wilkinson's ankles in his mouth. Then they both fell—the bear all the way to the ground and Wilkinson to branches a short distance off the ground. "I thought I was dead. I waited for him to come back and finish me," said Wilkinson. The bear left. Political Activities, Union Shop at Stake- Court Will Review Union Membership Ruling WASHINGTON <AP> — The Supreme Court today agreed to review a decision that compulsory union membership is unconstitutional if dues money is used for political purposes without the consent of union members. The decision was given by the Georgia Supreme Court.in a suit by six employes of the Southern Railway System. 15 Unions Appeal It was appealed to the highest tribunal by 15 unions, among them railroad brotherhoods at whose insistence union shop contracts have been signed by many railways. Under union shop contracts, em- ployes are required to join unions within a specified time. In the Georgia case this was (30 days. The six Southern Railway System employes said they did not want to join unions and should not be forced to pay dues when part of the money was used to support political candidates and doctrines they opposed. A time for argument will be set later. The issue is one of far-reaching import. If the Supreme Court agress with the Georgia court, un shop agreements ;is so enforced j Congress in 1951 amended th« ions could not use any general! wcre contrnry to the constitution.'

Poles Over Turkey in U. N. Fight By MAX HARRELSON UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (AP) — Communist Poland gradually pulled ahead of Western-backed Turkey today in a deadlocked contest for a seat in the U.N. Security Council. . After eight secret ballots in the 82-nation General Assembly, Poland was only seven votes short of the required two-thirds majority of those- present and voting. The vote on the eighth ballot was 47 for Poland and 34 for Turkey. Israel was absent throughout today's voting because of the Jewish holiday. Polish Foreign Minister Adam Rapacki said Poland was in the contest to stay. Western supporters of Turkey also said they were standing firm. May Be Long There was a possibility the deadlock might continue for weeks. Ecuador and Ceylon were elected without opposition to fill two other vacant seats. On the first ballot Poland received 46 votes to 36 for Turkey. On the second Poland got 43 and Turkey 38. A U.S. spokesnian said the United States would stick to Turkey indefinitely. Chief U.S. Delegate Henry Cabot Lodge said he was optimistic that Turkey would win eventually. Poland and Turkey are contesting to succeed Japan, whose two- year term on the Security Council ends Jan. 1. Ceylon was unopposed to succeed Canada as a British Commonwealth member, and Ecuador was the sole candidate for the U.N See Page 9 Ike Gives Mateos Ford Falcon Gift WASHINGTON (AP) — President Eisenhower has presented one of the new, small-sized American cars as a personal gift to his friend, President Adolfo Lopez Mateos of Mexico. The dark blue Ford Falcon sedan was waiting in the driveway back of the White House Saturday when Lopez Mateos came out with Eisenhower to board a helicopter for Camp David, Md. The car, fully equipped retails for around $2,300. Since it was a personal rather than official gift, Eisenhower paid for it out of his own pocket. The car will be sent to Mexico City, White .House Press Secretary James C. Hagerty told reporters. Manning School Safe Broken Open; $86.50 in Cash Gone A break-in at the Manning school Sunday night netted thieves about $86.50 in paper currency and silver, the sheriff's office said. The money was taken from a safe in the principal's office. The safe was broken open, the sheriff's office said. Investigation of the robbery continued Monday, Sheriff Al Thorup said. Public Pressure in Russia For More Consumer Goods By PRESTON GROVER MOSCOW (AP)—Quiet but persistent public pressure for more consumer goods has shown itself m recent weeks. The Soviet government is seeking to meet it to some extent. Premier N i k i t a Khrushchev made clear last week that his government will continue pushing ahead with its industrialization scheme, thus limiting the supply of consumer items. But some improvement is promised. Some declaration on the subject j may be expected at the meeting beginning Oct. 27 of the Supreme Soviet, the Soviet parliament. Khrushchev set the tune when he j publicly discussed consumer goods on his recent tour of Siberia. He ordered a better supply of consumer goods to Vladivostok, the port on the Pacific which is icebound for three months a year. In a speech he told his people to dress better and get away from drab grays. He said the Soviet Union must produce more con- Himer goods of better quality and lower price. What perhaps is as important us the speeches is the appearance of letters and discussions about prices in the newspapers. Such subjects are still handled jjingerly. But the Moscow paper Soviet Russia printed letter Irom a worker complaining: "1 am fed up with this covering up with Sputniks and airliners. "Come down to the level of the most ordinary shoes. I have only one pair of shoes which have already lasted four years. "Why? Because they come from the West and have a brand from abroad. "I am not personally in need of a TU114 (airliner). I manage with the help of the tram. But I want to lead a good life, to be well clad." Soviet production has not begun to match foreign production of consumer goods, either in quality or quantity. An increasing number oi people are becoming aware of it. Rev. Allan M. Peterson New Pastor Installed By Presbyterians With one-third of church members attending services, and with churches operating on a percentage of what ' money folks have "left over" in their pockets, we must wonder "Why?", the Rev. Carl W. Be'ckman said in the installation sermon at the Presbyterian Church Sunday night. This tendency is in most churches, he said, and further stated that parents all too often write a check for the church, see that their children attend Sunday School, and then avoid too much attention to churchly affairs, "for fear," he said. "For fear of what? — Involvement. For fear that if they attend too many church affairs, they will become involved more deeply than they intend with their time, money and talents," he explained. In his challenge, he said that churchmen know they should attend services regularly, give of their money more substantially and live more nearly in a churchman's life. But they are "afraid they will become more involved than they intend." Cherokee Pastor The Rev. Mr.' Beckman is pastor of the Memorial Presbyterian Church, Cherokee. He also asked the constitutional questions of both the new minister and his new congregation. In the service, conducted by the Presbytery of Northwest Iowa, the Rev. Allan M. Peterson was in- Instullation See Page 9 Rain Forecast Starting Tonight By The Associated Press Rain showers were due to spread across Iowa Monday night, continue as light rain Tuesday and possibly turn to snow in northern counties Tuesday. The temperatures Monday morning accompanying a general frost included 22 degrees at Spencer, and these other below-freezing readings: Mason City, 24; Dubuque and Waterloo, 27; Cedar Rapids, 29; and Lamoni and Burlington, 31 degrees. The Monday afternoon highs were expected to be from the middle 30s in the west to the middle 40s in the east. Sunday's tops were from 43 at Mason City to 52 at Burlington. The outlook was for Tuesday morning readings ranging from the 30s in the north to the 40s in the south. i County Tax Collections 0 " Little Slower Than Usual Nearly a quarter-million dollars in unpaid taxes remain to be collected on 1958 taxes in Carroll County, Mrs. C. C. Sullivan, county treasurer, said Monday. The 1958 tax total payable in Urges Law To Stop TV Rigged Shows WASHINGTON (AP) — The chairman of the Federal Trade Commission said today deceptive entertainment such as rigged TV shows is not something his agency can regulate. Earl W. Kintner, the FTC head, told House investigators his agency has never gone beyond control of advertising which results in unfair business practices. The House subcommittee on Legislative Oversight has heard testimony that questions and answers were supplied in advance to some contestants on such programs as "Twenty-One" and "Tic Tac Dough." Gray Area of Law In reply to questions, Kintner conceded that this constitutes "a gray area in the law." He said Congress could enact a law making it a criminal offense to rig a TV show. "It would have a salutary effect," he -said. Kintner also suggested broadening the rules of the Federal Communications Commission, which is the federal regulatory body for television and radio. Kintner said the courts have held that where no misrepresentation of products is involved, the commission has no jurisdiction. But he said the commission staff in 1956 conducted a preliminary investigation of a complaint involving the TV quiz program, "The Big Surprise." The program went off the air, Kintner said, and the investigation never got to the question of the commission authority to act. Woman Contestant He described the complaint as TV See Page 9 Jr. Chamber Plans 2 Events Carroll Jaycees have two meetings planned for this week — a chili supper Wednesday and an after- the-game party Friday. Both events are at the Southside Shelter house. Wednesday's chili supper will be at 7 p.m. and will be an orientation meeting, with all new members especially urged to attend. Following the Carroll-Lake City football game Friday, the Jaycees will be hosts to the Lake City Jaycees and Jaycee - ettes for a lunch and party after the game. The committee-in-charge is Mr. and Mrs. Larry Boyer and Mr. and Mrs. Nugent Adams. 1959, was $2.088.880.90 and a total of $l,«65,42fi.4() has been paid. That, leaves $223,454.50 to be collected. I List To Be Published ! The delinquent tax list will be published in the official county publications (Daily Times Her- aid, Manning Monitor, G 1 i d d e n Graphic and Coon Rapids Enterprise) on or about Nov. 15, Mrs. Sullivan said. Tax sales will be .scheduled starting the first Monday in December. Penalties are now in effect on unpaid taxes. The deadline for second half payment was Sept. 30. The penalty on second half taxes is computed on the rate of three- fourths of one per cent for the first month. The figure doubles with each succeeding month. Penalty Builds Up In cases where the first half is delinquent the penalty now is five and one-quarter per cent and will increase by three-fourths of one per cent each succeeding month the taxes are delinquent, Mrs. Sullivan pointed out. One possible reason for slow collection of farm taxes, Mrs. Sullivan said, may be that a number of farmers did not sell their soybeans until this fall. Collections are a little slower this year than normal, the treasurer said. ns MOSCOW 'AP) - Training of Soviet spacemen has been described for the first time in some detail by the magazine Ogonek. The training appears designed primarily to simulate conditions of rocket flights up to 300 miles. The Russians say some of their experimental dogs have returned safely to earth as many as four times from such high altitude flights. It has been expected here for some time that the next step in Soviet space exploration will be to send a man into the outer reaches of the earth's atmosphere with the hope of bringing him lack alive. Ogonek's article came out this weekend as Lunik III, a 614- pound Soviet flying laboratory, was reported to have headed back toward earth from a week's flight 191,650 miles out in space, designed to send it around the hidden side of the moon. The space trainees program ap* pears to resemble that undertaken in the United States by seven officers of the U.S. armed forces. Little Taken in 2 Carroll Break-ins Break-ins were discovered over the weekend at the DeLuxe Cleaners and Launderers and at the Carroll Roller Mills, police reported. The break - in at the DeLuxe Cleaners and Launderers netted thieves 50-cents in pennies, a heavy grey jacket with zipper, three pair of rental trousers and some pop, police said. Nothing was reported missing at '.he Carroll Roller Mills where the cash drawer was left untouched in the office. Big Reception For Kennedy ATLANTIC CITY, N. J. (AP)— The United Auto Workers' convention today gave Sen. John F. Kennedy (D-Mass) a noisily enthusiastic reception and cheered his declaration that the UAW is a "basic bulwark" of the progressive liberal movement in this country. "I come to you as a friend of labor," Kennedy said. "I have never apologized for that friendship and I don't intend to start today." Kennedy was invited to address the convention as one of the leading possibilities for the Democratic presidential nomination in 1960. Kennedy made no direct mention of his possible candidacy but commented on handbills distributed at the convention hall entrance suggesting UAW President Walter P. Reuther as a presidential candidate. "I think he would do very well," Kennedy told the applauding delegates. Later, at a news conference, Kennedy said he would make known his presidential intentions in January. Kennedy told the convention he ind no apology for his record in Congress on labor legislation. He declared, "the labor movement was not let down by its friends, it did not have enough friends." The senator said James R. Hof- r a, Teamsters Union President, ! 'may not approve of me," but! he said he had no apology to : make for earning such hostility. I Kennedy asserted the Republi-!

Cashier James A. Byers said Monday the combination of the vault was forced with a punch and large hammer. The money, all in change, was taken from drawers and sacks inside. A time safe containing currency and papers apparently was not molested. Entrace to the building was gained by prying open a rear window; Sloan Marshal Gail Watson said, although there was a large crowd of shoppers in town Saturday night, he noticed no strange car. Richard Schaefer, 10, Is Injured by Tractor Richard A. Schaefer, 10-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Melvin Schaefer of Carroll, is a patient at St. Anthony Hospital under observation after being injured by a tractor. His father was reported operating the tractor and took the boy to the hospital, where he was admitted at 6:05 p.m. Sunday. If no serious complications turn up, Richard should be able to leave the hospital in three or four days, his physician reported Monday. He suffered no breaks. AT LEGION PARLEY Five local men attended the afternoon session of the American Legion district conference at Webster City Sunday. Going from Carroll were Fred Bily, Leo Sturm, Lewis Vcyles, Arnold Witt and Ido Pol- la.strini. Congressmen James I. Dolliver was featured speaker. UAW on Record Against Formation of 3rd Party If it weren't for daylight saving i time, some people wouldn't be able to save anything. i Clyde Farrell Suffers Heart Attack Clyde Farrell of Des Moines, former manager of the Northwestern Bell Telephone company dial exchange here, is reported ill in Iowa Methodist Hospital after a j heart attack suffered Friday. He j is allowed no visitors at this time. Mr. Farrell, pioneer Carroll | County telephone man, retired in; August, 1954. A short time later j he and Mrs. Farrell purchased a < home in Des Moines and moved j there. He is a member of the: Telephone Pioneers. j By mVIGHT PITKIN ATLANTIC CITY, X.J. (AP)— The United Auto Workers favor a realignment of the nation's political forces — but not a third j party. | The UAW convention declared; Sunday that both Democratic and; Kepublicun parties need an over-; haul—"if the present two-party j system is to operate more effectively in the public interest." | Although the 1,200,000-member •• UAW went on record in its po- j litical action program against for-1 mation of a new major party, a , few delegates' advocated such a j move. i But TAW Vice President Leon-J arc! Woodcock urged delegates not' to let their "frustration, resent- nu'iit and bitterness" over legislative defeats in a Democratic-con.-j trolled Congress lead them into a third party. The convention urged that the national AFL-CIO "explore with other groups the possibility of calling a national conference of labor, farm and other liberal forces in the spring of 1%0 prior to the convening of both party conventions." Secretary - treasurer Emil Maxey joined Woodcock in advising against a movement for a third party. But Muzey's brother Ernest sided with the few who dissented. "We ought to consider a party of laborers, farmers, Negroes and liberals, "he declared. Paul Silver, member of the resolutions committee, contended a third party would inoun victory for the Republicans.
