A free press is America's real "secret weapon," Dr. Walter Steigleman, University of Iowa journalism professor, declared here Monday night. Dr. Steigleman, a newspaperman, writer and educator, spoke to a crowd of nearly 200 Carroll County Rotarians and Rotary Anns attending an intercity meeting at First Methodist Church fellowship hall here. The Manning and Coon Rapids clubs were guests of the Carroll club. Dr. Sleiglcman's remarks were keyed to the current observance Uphill Fight For Rocky in Middle West By ROBERT GRAY CHICAGO (API - Gov. Nelson A Rockefeller of New York .appears to be waging an uphill battle today in his bid for Midwestern support for the Republican presidential nomination. * He slammed into a wall of public indifference on his arrival here Monday for a two-day visit designed to test his chances of gaining support to challenge Vice President Richard M. Nixon for the GOP nomination. Nixon Stronghold The Midwest is considered a Nixon stronghold. No organized support for the New York governor was apparent during the early stages of his Chicago visit. Nor were there any crowds interested in seeing the multi-millionaire governor who has been widely mentioned as a possible future president. Illinois Gov. William G. Stratton a Republican, met with Rockefeller,, but said he would remain neutral for the present in the Nixon-Rockefeller contest. Rockefeller lined up meetings today with other Midwest political leaders and businessmen. Rockefeller had breakfast today with a group of Wisconsin Republicans. They discussed the possibility of his appearing in that state. Visits Scheduled Indications were he would stop in Wisconsin for speaking engagements while returning from a trip to the West Coast next month. Rockefeller will visit California Nov 12 and Nov. 13 and Oregon of National Newspaper Week, the slogan for which is "Your Newspaper: Freedom's Textbook." Gifts Presented A highlight 6f the program was the presentation of gifts to the Carroll and Manning clubs. On behalf of the Manning club, Dr. William Chandler presented the Carroll club with a podium. President Matt Ban-on of the Coon Rapids club presented new 50-star flags to the Carroll and Manning clubs. The gifts were in recognition of the work of the Carroll and Manning clubs in helping the two oth- er clubs get organized in recent years. Dr. L. B. Westendorf was master of ceremonies for the program. Invocation was given by the Rev. Carl Sinning, pastor of the Manning Presbyterian Church. Group singing was led by H. L. Hudson, accompanied at the piano by Roger Hansen. Julia G i 11 e 11, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James Gillett, played a clarinet solo, accompanied at the piano by Edward Turechek and Barbara Deur, daughter of Dr. and Mrs. H. E.

Supreme Court Rules in Favor of Robert Crotts A head of a family cannot be •equired to cash in his life insurance policies and apply the proceeds to his debts, the Iowa Supreme Court ruled Tuesday. The court reversed an order by District Judge F. H. Cooney in Jarroll County District Court requiring Robert Crotts to apply the cash surrender value of two life insurance policies toward a judgment against him, obtained by the \Vestinghouse Credit Corporation. The Supreme court said that "to hold that the cash surrender value of life insurance policies are not exempt from the law which holds generally that all a person's property may be levied upon to pay his debts, violates another section of the law." The insurance laws provide that a life insurance policy must be held free of debt and encumbrances for the separate benefit of the wife and children of the insured. The order had been issued by District Judge F. H. Cooney Dec. 26, 1957, according to Mr. Crotts' attorney.,' The judgment was for $3,435.35. The appeal by Mr. Crotts asked the Iowa tribunal to reverse the lower court's decision on two grounds; 1, A statute of Iowa prohibits a creditor from seizing the cash surrender value of a debtor's life insurance' policies "in the circumstances of this particular case." 2. Policies involved could not be reached by the creditor because nothing is due Crotts by the insurance company unless Crotts should take affirmative action such as making application for the cash surrender value and surrendering the policies,. Mr. Crotts formerly operated a home and appliance store here.

Russell A. Langelle is the U.S diplomat whom the Reds kicked out of the Soviet Union last weekend, saying they caught him in spy work. The United States has denied the spy accusations. Langelle, who had been top security officer at the American Embassy in Moscow, is now on his way back to Washington with his family amid protests and counter-protests between the two capitals. Soviet jamming of the Voice o: America's Russian-language pro grams stopped for the first time in a decade when Premier Nikita Khrushchev visited the Unitec States last month. It has beei sporadic since. The stoi-y was published today for the first time in the Sovie Union, in a brief account by the Soviet news agency Tass. It brief ly outlined the charges agains Langelle and made no mention o the U.S. version of the incident. The U.S. version is that Lan gelle was seized last Friday b five Soviets in civilian clothes as he alighted from a bus near th embassy who took him to a near Langelle See Page 11 National Emergency Legislation Seen If Steel Strike Not Settled By JACK BELL WASHINGTON (AP) — Two influential senators today predicted Congress may act on national emergency legislation if the steel strike is not settled by next January. Sens. Mike Mansfield of Montana, the assistant Senate Democratic leader;, and Kenneth B. Keating (R-NY), spoke of the possibility. Mansfield said in an interview that if steel workers go back on the job under an injunction and W-M Money may not bring happiness, but it makes your nerves a lot steadier. then walk out at the end of an 80-day cooling off period, Congress is almost certain to act quickly after it returns in January. President Eisenhower Monday ordered the Justice Department to seek a court injunction under the Taft-Hartley Act to halt the strike for 80 days. The Steelworkers have said they would obey such an injunction if one is issued, but would walk out again at the end of the 80 days. Today the White House declined to, say whether Eisenhower will esk for new legislation to deal with such disputes as the marathon steel strike. At a news conference, Press In response to another question Hagerty said Eisenhower i aware of the Mitchell suggestion "1 would think there would b consideration of legislation creal ing special labor courts whic could act to ward off any strik that threatens the national secur ily," Mansfield said. "It might b that the procedures of the Rai way Labor Act for arbitration an conciliation could be brought int play for any basic industry sue as steel." Keating told an audience in Ut ca, N.Y., Monday night that i any event Congress is going t have to "hike a long, hard loo at the emergency provisions o the Taft-Hartley Act to determin District Court. Started With Divorce The case started when the Irodys' daughter, Mrs. Nancy Lee Sail, was divorced by her hus- jand in Kansas. The Kansas court granted custody of their child, Anhony, then about 2, to Ball's par- Nancy Ball, meanwhile, ents. Mrs. had taken the child to the Brody home in Council Bluffs. Ball insti- uted habeas corpus proceedings i.nd the court ordered the child delivered to its custody. The trial court held that the :est interests of the child would be served by granting custody to Ball's parents as decreed by the \ansas court. The Brodys and Mrs. Nancy Ball appealed to the Iowa Su preme Court, and the District Court permitted Anthony to live with his mother pending outcom- of the appeal. The Iowa Supreme Court las spring upheld the finding of th District Court. Mrs. Nancy Ball had married William Bacot of South Carolina in September, 1958, and last Apn they took Anthony to South Caro lina with them. They did not re turn. Cited for Contempt Judge Everest then cited the Brodys for contempt for failure to produce the child in court. The Supreme Court said part o: the blame was on the trial court because it should haVe placed the child in "controlled custody" when the boy was in court originally. It added that courts "should be explicit and precise in, their com mands and should only then be strict in exacting compliance." The Supreme Court noted thai (he Brodys had submitted evi dence that by letters, telegrams and telephone calls they had tried to get their daughter to return Anthony to Iowa. It said this was all they could reasonably be expected to do to comply with the District Court's order. * Court Reverses School Decision DES MOINES (AP)—The Rudd- Rockford-Marble Rock School District is legal and valid, the Iowa Supreme Court ruled unanimously Tuesday. The high court thus reversed the decision of District Judge Tom Boynton, who had held the district invalid because of an error in the description of the land included. Court action to test the validity of the district had been brought by the Greene Community School District and 46 property owners. The portion of the district in Michell County was erroneously Pleads National Emergency- U.S. Files Order to Halt Steel Strike By JOHN MOODY PITTSBURGH (AP)—The gov- irnment today filed a petition for i federal'court injunction to halt the 98-day steel strike. Immediately afterward, the striking Unit- Steelworkers asked the court not to issue a Taft-Hartley injunction. The government's petition said continuation of the nationwide la- Dor dispute would "imperil the national health and safety." On the other hand, the union petition filed by attorney Ernest G. Nassar argued that the strike does not now endanger the nation's economy as interpreted under the Taft-Hartley Act. Judge Studies Petition Nearly an hour after the government petition was filed, U.S. District Judge Herbert P. Sorg was still studying it. He was expected to hold a hearing later this afternoon. U.S. Atty. Hubert I. Teitelbaum of Pittsburgh filed the bulky government petition. It was brought here by George C. Doub, assistant attorney general who flew from Washington. Banker Gets 6 Months for Embezzling DAVENPORT (AP) — George Eugene Kepper, 37, former Winfield, Iowa, banker, Tuesday was sentenced to two years in a federal penitentiary on a charge of embezzlement. Federal Judge E. R. Hicklin sentenced Kepper to serve only six months in prison and placed him on probation for the remainder of the time. Kepper was indicted last Sept. 14 on a charge of embezzling $66,707 from the Farmers National Bank of Winfield. Attorneys for Kepper said restitution has been made. The judge took under advisement the case of Eugene H. Blanchard, Fort Madison mail clerk, charged with the theft of $10,000 in cash from the U. S. mail. He also was indicted Sept. 14. Judge Hicklin deferred sentencing until a psychiatric report has been made. Restitution has been made in this case, also, attorneys told the court. Ora D. Bates, of Fort Madison and also charged in the mail theft, was sentenced to one year in prison. New Cold Front Diverted, Delayed By The Associated Press The new cold front which was due over Iowa Tuesday was somewhat diverted and delayed. As the cooler air moved slowly southward, the Weather Bureau Historic Surgery- A British newspaper reported from Moscow that Russian surgeon, Dr. Vladimir Demikhov (1959 file photo) is preparing to graft a new right leg on a 20- year-old girl in the first such operation in history. Dr. Demikhov previously won headlines by successfully grafting the head of a small dog onto another, creating a two-headed animal. The girl was described as a typist who recently lost a leg when she was hit by a train. Dr. Demikhov was quoted as saying: "I can now take a limb from a person who has died and transplant it onto a living person. The girl is my first patient. (N'EA TelephO' to) President Eisenhower ordered the petition filed. It is aimed at getting a half - million striking United Steelworkers back on the job for 80 days. United Steelworkers President David J. McDonald said the un- on's general counsel, Arthur J. (oldberg, would appear in court to appeal the government's petition or an injunction. Goldberg said he would argue .hat the provisions of the Taft- Hartley Act which have been invoked are unconstitutional. He said he also would argue that the strike does not imperil the na- ional health or safety within the meaning of the Taft-Hartley Act. McDonald said the union's decision making 170-member Wage Policy Committee has been called to meet in Pittsburgh Wednesday at 10 a.m. The union's 33-member Executive Board already is in Pittsburgh. McDonald said earlier that the union would fight an injunction proceeding "with might and main" but he added that "if it is issued, we will live up to the law of our country." The President acted Monday only 3V6 hours after receiving a special fact-finding panel's report that it had been unable to mediate the dispute and saw "no prospect for an early cessation of the strike." Ike's Letter The President's letter directing Rogers to seek an injunction said: "It is essential to the national interest that production be resumed immediately in the steel industry. "Free collective bargaining has not worked in this dispute despite the dedicated efforts of the federal government and the fact finding board of inquiry. "In order to protect the interests of all the American people, this leaves me with no alternative except to seek an injunction under the existing law. "America's hopes for a voluntary responsible settlement have not been fulfilled. It is a sad day for the nation." The Steelworkers, according to government figures, were earning an average of $3.11 an hour before the strike began. In their latest proposal they sought increased wages and other benefits which they valued at 20 cents an hour under a two-year pact. But, according to the panel, industry claimed the package would cost 32.4 cents an hour.
