Lunney told newsmen the $129,000 quiz win ner's attorney, Carl J. Rubino. had promised to arrange a time find place for serving the document. •Where's Charley?' Lunney smilingly greeted a corps of newsmen at his office with the remark: "Where's Charlie?" Then he said he and the attorney had conversed. Lunney said he personally would serve the subpoena, calling upon Van Doren to testify Nov. 2. Subpoenas ordinarily are served by deputies. Van Doren arrived here Tuesday after a weekend in New England amid a furor over his whereabouts. The investigating subcommittee's chairman, Rep. Oren Harris (D-Ark), has charged he ducked the subpoena. It was delivered to federal authorities here Tuesday. The subpoena presumably calls Van Doren ....

WASHINGTON (AP)—The striking Steelworkers Union gives the country only two alternatives, the industry's chief negotiator charged today—-"another inflationary wage increase in steel or go without steel." R. Conrad Cooper, who has headed the industry's negotiating team throughout the 92-day strike, defined this as the union's position in a statement prepared for a White House fact-finding board. "Plain hogwash" is what Cooper called the union's contention that the real issue in the strike is the companies' desire to break the union. Inflation Stressed Cooper's statement pounded again and again at what the industry calls the danger of inflation if a large wage increase is granted. A tiny wedge in the adamant position of both parties was driven at the close of Cooper's 70- minute prepared statement, but it was President David J. McDonald of the United Steelworkers Union who gave ground. McDonald told the board the union's wage and benefit demands are "negotiable." Cooper v had just said the union was just as adamant on its economic demands as in its resistance to the company proposal rules. for changes in work Later when the panel's questioning of Cooper resumed, the steel negotiator commented with some irritation: "Here ,for the first time Mr. McDonald says his economic demands are negotiable. He had never done so up to this time." It was the industry's "day in court" before the inquiry board, which has heard the union present Steel See Page 15 Warns U.N. Arms Race Means War UNITED NATIONS, N. Y. (AP) —President , Adolfo Lopez Mateos of Mexico warned the United Nations today that a buildup of arms to save peace can only end in war. v He said the future of the -United Nations depends upon a solution to the problem of disarmament. In a speech before the 82-nation General Assembly he declared: "History teaches quite clearly that it is an illusion to believe (hat peace can be won and supported by instruments of war. We know that ultimately these weapons, accumulated with a desire to avoid war, will threaten peace and then irreparably shatter it. Lopez Mateos said the big powers possessing weapons of mass destruction are "in honor bound to desist from using them." , "Peace is t and must be, possible—simply because we cannot do without it," he added. The Mexican leader earlier had talks in Washington with President Eisenhower. He was a guest of the U. N. and the City of New York. National Legion Post for Lou Voyles Louis Voyles has 1 been appointed to the national executive membership committee of the American Legion, it was announced at the regular Legion meeting Tuesday night. Mr. Voyles also reported on the national convention and Ido Pollastrini, post commander, reported on the district convention last Sunday. Members were reminded of the county meeting Wednesday night, Oct. 21, at Dedham. They should contact the commander for transportation. The next regular meeting of the Carroll post will be a 6:30 dinner Nov. 10. Each member is urged to take a guest. Jim Kerper was chairman of the refreshment committee at the meeting last night. To Keep Peace in Event of Disarmament- U. S. Asks U. N. Police Study By MAX HARRELSON UNITED NATIONS, N. Y. (AP) —The United States called today for a U. N. study on a system of international and domestic police forces to preserve peace in the event of total world disarmament. The new survey was proposed by U. S. Delegate Henry Cabot Lodge as a parallel to discussions of Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev's total disarmament plan laid before the U. N. General Assembly Sept. 18. Lodge told the Assembly's 82- nation Political Committee the United States would join other members of the new 10-nation disarmament group in Geneva early next year in giving to the Soviet proposals the most serious scrutiny. He said, however, that the United States still does not know what kind of inspection and controls the Soviet Union will accept and this is a key to whether the Soviet plan is acceptable. "There cannot be 100 per cent disarmament with only It per cent inspection," Lodge declared. Asks Control Plan He urged the Soviet Union to elaborate a detailed control plan before the Geneva disarmament talks begin if it wants the Khrushchev plan to get serious consideration. Turning to the question of what happens after disarmament, Lodge asserted: "If all nations lay down their arms, there must be institutions to preserve international peace and security and promote the rule of law. 3 Questions "It seems to the U. S. government that there am three questions in particular to which do- tailed answers should be sought: "1. What type of international police force should be established to preserve international peace and security? "2. What principles of Intrrna- tional law should govern the use ot such a force? "3. Wliaf intrrnnl security forces, in precise terms, would be re- quired by nations of the world if existing armaments are abolished?" The U. S. delegate made it clear that the United States had no objections in principle to total disarmament provided there could also be total control to prevent violations. in agreeing to take up tha Khrushchev plan at (he Geneva disarmament talks. Lodge made it clear that the committee also would discuss other proposals, including those made by British- Foreign Secretary Selwyn Lloyd before the General Assembly. Brush Fire Threatens Coast Areas LOS ANGELES (AP)—A brush fire fanned by strong winds swarmed across Arroyo Seco Canyon today, devouring acres oi valuable watershed and menacing foothill communities north of Los Angeles. The east side of the fire, which has consumed 1,800 acres, raged to within 1% miles of the Caltech jet propulsion laboratory, a key space research center. But the laboratory was not considered in any immediate danger. However, the wind shifted the blaze toward Altadena, a small town north of Pasadena. The fire was about 2% miles from Altadena at daybreak. Flames lit the slate-gray hills overlooking the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, south of the blaze. The fire is blazing along a 15- mile perimeter. A spokesman for the county fire department said it is believed the blaze was caused by a careless smoker. He did not elaborate. Two fiery fingers of the south ern front pierced the northern edges of the fashionable foothill community of La Canada, 30 miles Fire See Page 15 More Testify in Damage Trial Four more witnesses for the plaintiff and five witnesses for the defendant testified as the $40,000 appeal brought by F.

Carrier Boys: a Heartening Contrast to Juvenile Crime By FINIS MOTHERSIIEAD DALLAS, Tex. (AP) — The nation's 700.000 newspaper carrier boys are a bright, glowing statistic against the often dreary juvenile delinquency picture: fewer than one in 200 carriers gets his name on the police blotter. This is a figure from FBI Chief J. Edgar Hoover, himself a one- :ime newspaper boy. It's one the International Circulation Managers Assn. cites with more than casual pride. The circulation men are calling ;he matter to public attention as part of the Oct. 17 observance of Newspaper Boy Day. This is the 20th year the association has sponsored the day in the United States, Canada and 20 other countries. Jack Estes, secretary-treasurer of the ICMA, says the earnings of these junior business men who de- " Your H o ',v (.1 pa po r : Free A oni 1 a Toxt- book* Hi «O- NMtional Hewo- paper V/eek Octol>er 15~£1 liver newspapers to your door amount to $2,600,000 a year. Pay for College Thousands pay their way through college from their profits. Estes and his staff estimate the newspapers, seeking to encourage further studies by high school graduates, distribute $500,000 a year in scholarships. Circulation managers, as well as authorities concerned with juvenile problems, consider it self-evident that a newspaper route keeps a boy too busy for idle mischief, teaches responsibility, self reliance, poise in dealing with the public and the benefits of free enterprise. Gen. Curtis E. LeMay of the United States Air Force, another former newspaper boy, said in connection with this year's observance of Newspaper Boy Day: "Newspaper boys have become a tradition in our American way of life, and have established their position as reliable and contributing members of the society of this nation. "At an early age they assume responsibility for supplying their fellow Americans with vital information on the news of the world. Furthermore, they acquire constructive work habits early in life, and in so doing become members of that valuable group of Amer- icans who are not afraid to work. ,» . . « Good Grades Count Reports to the International Circulation Managers Assn. show more and more newspapers, in position to choose from applicants for delivery routes, are accepting only boys whose grades in school rank them above average. "Generally," says Estes," "the preference is for boys to start on the job at around 13 — old enough that they're ready for some responsibility but still young enough not to spend all their time thinking about which girl they want to ask for a date." As evidence of what the training may mean, the circulation men have found that a list of former newspaper boys in nearly any town or city is apt to read like a local who's who. It's the same story at the national level. Among the ex-newspaper boys cited at random by the ICMA are Herbert C. Hoover, Joseph W. Martin, Albert B. (Happy) Chandler, Thomas E. Dewey, Maurice J. Tobin, Earl Warren, Walt Disney, Bing Crosby, Bob Hope, Harold Lloyd, Fred M. Vinson, Thomas C. Clark, Roy W. Howard, Frank E. Gannett, William 0. Douglas, Capt. Eddie Rickenbacker, Benjamin F. Fairless and Dwight D. Eisenhower. inois Alumni Would Like to See Evy as Coach DAYTON, Ohio (AP)—An Ohio sports editor said Wednesday that a group of University of Illinois alumni would like to see Forest Evashevski as the new Illini football coach. Writing in his column, Ritter Collett of the Dayton Journal Herald said: "There's a behind-the-scenes battle flaring at the University of Illinois over breaking the tradition of restricting the football coaching job to an alumnus. The only man with a reputation seemingly strong enough to corral the necessary backing happens to be Forest Evashevski, the unhappy Iowa mentor. And Evy happens to be the man a small but potent segment of Illini alumni would }ike to see cross the Mississippi River when Ray .Eliot steps down six weeks hence. Evy wouldn't be the first man to pull up stakes before his contract is up." Eliot is retiring as head coach after the current football season ends. Evashevski has announced he would leave Iowa after his 10- year contract expires in 1963. He also asked and received permis sion to review any offers that might come his way. tf^ku^fl^k^-^fl^u^^hu^^^^-^ ^^'•i^^^^i^^^^^^^^^^^^n Deadline Near For Tickets To Kennedy Speech Members of the Carroll Chamber ot Commerce were reminded Wednesday that Thursday, October 15, is the deadline for the reservation of tickets for the annual meeting pf the Carroll Chamber of Commerce Nov. »21. Senator John F. Kennedy of Massachusetts, a possible candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination, will be the featured speaker. A week ago Wednesday ticket reservation forms were mailed to the 245 members of the Chamber advising them that two tickets were at present reserved for each and that if the tickets are not claimed on or before Oct. 15, they will after that date be ma'de available to other members requesting dditional tickets. There will be only 500 tickets available to members. The annual meeting committee reports that the advance sale of tickets has been excellent. Chamber President H. C. Scho- gren announced that in addition to the committees already selected, L. A. Jack Smith, general chairman, a "greeters" committee composed of Mayor A. N. Neu, James W. Wilson, Robert Bruner and Archie Gietz, an advisory committee on the meeting activities composed of Dr. Paul Anneberg, John Gnam, A. J. Vorsten, Paul Crouse and Roger Haynes has been named. Balloons Attract 1 • Attention in City Two b.-.lloons, reported released at Sioux Falls, S.D., attracted at- ention in the Carroll area as they hovered high in the sky north of Carroll shortly before noon. The balloons were expected to and in a triangle formed be- ween Coon Rapids, Manning and Atlantic. As they moved slowly over Carroll, they seemed to hang motion- ess like tiny silver moons in the elear sky. It was believed they were either weather or research balloons.

(AP) America's new Explorer VII satellite is spinning about the earth every hour and 41 seconds gathering data about space radiation and the weather. A four - stage Junio II rocket Cabinet Is Reshuffled byMacmillan LONDON (AP)—Prime Minister Harold Macmillan reshuffled his cabinet today. He named Ian Macleod as colonial secretary in place of Alan Lennox-Boyd. Lennox-Boyd, under heavy fire in the House of Commons in recent months because of his African policy, has left the cabinet along with Geoffrey Lloyd, minister of education. Macmillan rewarded Lord Hailsham, architect of the Conservative campaign that led to the party's election victory last Thurs day, by giving him responsibility for scientific development with the cabinet title of lord privy seal Hailsham was replaced a chairman of the. Conservative Par ty by Home Secretary Richard A Butler. •Both Butler and Macleod are regarded as members pf a reformist wing of the Conservative party. Butler will remain as home secretary, one of the three top cabinet jobs. The other two top posts also remained unchanged. Selwyn Lloyd stays as foreign secretary and Derick Heathcoat Amory as chancellor of the exchequer. Macmillan created a new post —minister of aviation—and gave t to Duncan Sandys, former de- 'ense minister. Sandys is a son- n-law of Sir Winston Churchill. Sandys also will have responsibili- ,y for guided weapons, radar and electronics. Former Recorder Fined for Accepting Sratuities in Office lifted the gyroscope satellite into orbit Tuesday and it immediately began transmitting valuable information. Explorer VII joined eight other American satellites, including one orbiting the sun. The Soviet Union has three still up, also including one circling the moon. Scientists Pleased Space scientists were pleased with the orbit attained—which takes the Explorer VII 664 miles from earth at its farthest point and as close as 346 miles at its nearest point. Dr. Homer Newell Jr. of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration reported this orbit is more nearly circular than hoped for and said it would be an advantage because of the nature of some of the seven experiments carried in the instrument package. For one thing, he noted, gauges designed to measure cosmic rays will not be unduly flooded by high altitude radiation. One Transmitter Weak Newell announced one of the two satellite radio transmitters was weaker than hoped for and that it probably ' will die in about two months. The transmitter is designed for precision tracking 01 the satellite. Newell said, how ever, that when the radio stops the satellite can be tracked by telescopic means. Explorer VII is expected to stay aloft for 20 years, but it will relay information for only one year. After that period, an automatic device will shut off the second transmitter. This is to prevent the radio signals from cluttering up satellite broadcasting wave- engths. The main mission of the new satellite was to study the lower evels of bands of radiation hover- ng above the earth. This data may help ease man's way to the moon. Other Measurements Other instruments measure cosmic rays in and below the belt; micro-meteoric density; sun-produced ultra-violet' radiation; and he heat balance between the Explorer VII ... See Page 15 SIOUX CITY (AP)— Carroll H. Jandt, 67, was fined $500 in Dis- rict Court Tuesday on a charge of accepting gratuities during the 6 years he had served as Wood- )ury County recorder. He also was given a six-month jail sentence on .his plea of guilty )ut the jail term was suspended )y Judge Maurice E. Rawlings. The gratuities consisted of mak- ng copies of real estate transfers and various records for firms and ndividuals but no amount was stated in the court. Counsel for landt said things for which the ormer recorder accepted payment consisted of extra work and hat the practice had been used )y recorders for 40 years. Jandt was indicted on an em- >ezzlement charge last March but was permitted to plead guilty to a lesser charge. He was defeated or re-election last year. Sheriff Hunts Man For Beating His Wife NEWTON (AP) - The Jasper lounty sheriff's office said Wednesday it was looking for a Newton man who allegedly beat ris estranged wife.
