County Attorneys Cited for Illegal Collections DES MOINES (AP)—County at-|bf cases from which he collected torneys in Fayclte and Clinton another $207 in commissions. counties collected more than $1.500 in illegal commissions from Buchheil's salary is $3.800 a year. The audit of Clinton County court fines, according to 1958 aud-| snowcc j former County Attorney its recently filed in the State Audi- \v a rren Johnson collected $1,980 in tor's Office. And the Dallas County attorney received S857 to which he was not entitled, the audits showed. State law permits county attorneys in counties of less than 60,000 population to collect 10 per cent commission on fines in criminal cases they handle in mayors and justice of the peace courts. But a 1939 attorney general's opinion says county attorneys are not entitled to the commission unless they make an appearance in the case, in person, by telephone or in writing. The Fayette County audit claimed County Attorney Mark D. Buchheit received $1,529 in fine commissions from cases which his name did not appear. Buchheit's name was found on court records fine commission's to which he was not entitled. The Clinton County Board of Supervisors Monday asked County Attorney John Carlsen to start proceedings against Johnson to recover the money. Johnson's salary as county attorney in 1958 was $4,400. He received an additional $3,094 in commissions from fines. The Dallas County audit showed former County Attorney Ned Willis received $857 in commissions from cases on which his name did not appear, plus an additional $910 in commissions from cases where his name did appear. Willis' salary in 1958 was $3,616. In each case, state examiners ordered the money repaid to the county school fund. that our efforts to leapfrog ahead of the Reds will fail. And why is the U. S. failing? This is the root of the paradox 10 Time* Herald, Carroll, U. Tuesday, Oct. 13, 1959 as these men see it: we're failing because we're trying too hard, trying to go too fast, to hurry too much. Says one top space planner: "We're sending satellites and lu- nar probes up with the wrong equipment. We're not taking the time to wait and develop the right stuff. But everyone wants to get into the act — send something up right now. And it doesn't work. "We learn a great deal from these failures. The work and money's not all wasted. But it sure costs a lot." GOP for Tax Cuts After Debt Lowered By D. HAROLD OLIVER WASHINGTON (AP) — A Republican study committee today presented a sweeping plan envisioning a gross national product of 900 billion dollars a year by 1967. It recommended a manufacturer's sales tax and reduction of individual and corporate income taxes. The tax cuts would come only after a start is made toward reducing the huge federal debt, and would be modest at first. They would be applied "as rapidly over the next few years as the prospective surplus will permit." For the long run, the committee proposed substantially reduced taxes and more equitable distribution of the tax burden. The 10,000-word report on "Economic Opportunity and Progress" was the fifth and final document approved by a 40-member com- nittee headed by Charles H. Percy, Chicago businessman. The group was named to outline long- range GOP goals. The final report was drawn up by a 14-member group headed by Jabriel Hauge, former economic assistant to President Eisenhower and now a New York financier. Other reports dealt with science, lational security and peace, and luman rights and needs. The economic report said sensi- le management of the public lebt, combined with tax reform, an effective monetary policy and strict control over federal expen- Htures "will do much to help maintain a dependable currency and a steady rate of economic progress." Van Daren is Accused of Dodging Subpoena INSPECT BUSES School bus inspection was held at Manning Tuesday morning, beginning at 9 o'clock. Wednesday at 1:15, the buses from Dedham, Carroll and Glidden will be inspected at Glidden, according to County School Superintendent B. G. Halverson. By WILLIAM F. ARBOGAST WASHINGTON (AP) — Big money winner Charles Van Doren is billed for a command appearance when the congressional probe of television quiz shows resume Nov. 2. House investigators issued a subpoena last Friday for the youthful Columbia University English instructor. But Van Doren can't be found. Rep. Oren Harris (D-Ark), chairman of the House Legislative Oversight subcommittee, on Monday accused Van Doren of deliberately ' evading service of the subpoena. Harris said Van Doren "seems to have challenged the committee and the facts which have been developed." The investigation recessed Monday after six days of testimony about rigging of big - name television quiz contests by providing advance questions and answers to contestants. Harris said a diligent search had been made by committee staff members and others for Van Doren, who won fame and $129,000 by knowing the right answers at the right time on the now defunct "Twenty-One" quiz show. Van Doren became a $50,000-a- year National Broadcasting Co. employe after his fabulous winnings on the NBC program in 1956 and 1957. The subcommittee previously had "invited" Van Doren to tes- :ify. But it received no reply to the invitation extended after he had volunteered to make himself available. Between the time of the invitation and the subpoena, NBC _ suspended Van Doren from his job— including appearances'on the "Today" .show—pending determination of the House inquiry. Columbia University has given him a week's leave from his teaching duties. Harris referred to what he called Van Doren's "challenging" offer of last Wednesday to testify voluntarily and of the committee's invitation to Van Doren to appear Thursday or Friday at his own convenience. In his offer to testify, Harris said. Van Doren stated he had received no advance assistance in any form on "Twenty-One." Van Doren's name was not officially linked to scandals in public testimony, although committee members said his name cropped up frequently in closed-door testimony by producers and others connected with the "Twenty-One" show. The nature of the closed door testimony has not been revealed. One example: the Atlas-Able that's scheduled to try to put a paddlewheel satellite around the moon. The second stage, the part on top of the Atlas, isn't the right size for the Atlas. It's too small— a quick adaptation from the second stage of another rocket. And it just doesn't have what it takes to do the job right. It's the same problem as with the atom plane. Top Navy research me« say we're spending a lot of money trying to work out an atomic plane— the whole works—before scientists have developed the right kind of an atomic engine to power it. That's being done to save time — so the plane will be ready by the time the atomic engine is. "The thing we forget," says one atomic scientist, "is that the engine — by the time it's developed —will probably be radically different from what we expect. Then the plane we've developed probably won't work with that engine. Meanwhile, we're frittering away funds and men that might be better used to develop the engine." That sort of hurry-up is what happened to the Navy a few years ago in a new airplane. The engine and plane didn't fit. The whole project was junked after spending millions of dollars. It all went down the drain. What then should we do? Says one National Aeronautics and Space Administration planner: "We should spend more of our funds on what some people call state of the art research — learn more about engines, or fuel, or rocket systems, or rockets generally before pouring millions into expensive space gadgets or series of gadgets. "By just delaying things a little longer — by doing a little more of this research before we try to send something up in the air — we'd get there successfully — faster." Some of the top men at tne Pentagon agree. They think that more funds and effort put into this developmental research would save money and time in the long run. What then is holding it up? "It's because we're jittery about letting the Reds get ahead of us," says one Defense Department scientist wryly. "We keep hoping that what w^e've got will work. We don't want to waste precious time with more research." Another reason, say scientists, is interservice rivalry. Each service, and each manufacturer for a service, wants his gadget up in the sky first. So no one waits. There's some evidence the tide is changing. But not very fast. Meanwhile, as lop Pentagon scientist Dr. York puts it, the Russians have been going ahead in a more orderly and systematic way. And they're getting results. FURNITURE Where You Can Buy Carpet at Fair Prices ACRILAN CARPET remarkable carpet WEEK onTV Housekeeping Guaranty New Acrilari Carpet Court- Rejects Racial Appeals By PAUL M. YOST WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court in a series of brief orders has in effect re-emphasized that it wants to avoid becoming involved in the details of working out racial integration in public schools. The high tribunal Monday unanimously refused to look into the all-out stand against integration taken by Prince Edward County, Va. That county abandoned its entire public school system when ordered to make a start this fall toward admitting Negro pupils. Another unanimous order rejected an appeal attacking validity of North Carolina's pupil placement law. The appeal was filed by a Negro who was told he had to use all administrative procedures under the state law before filing any complaint in federal court. By an 8-1 vote the high tribunal refused to act on another appeal which contended North Carolina school produce broad programs for integration, instead of handling Negro 'applications one by one under the pupil placement law. Another unanimous order refused Supreme Court review of a decision that barred the Norfolk, Va., city council from cutting off public school funds. The high court also rejected an appeal which contended the 14th Amendment to the constitution was never legally adopted. This appeal, filed by former Governor Dan Moody of Texas, asserted the amendment "has the undying hatred of approximately a fourth of the people of the United States, who regard it as an expression of tyranny."
