Iowa Ranks High in Highway Traffic, Safety Engineering AMES (AP) — The Iowa Highway Commission learned Wednesday that the National Safety Council rates this stale high in the Midwest in the field of road safety and traffic engineering. Carl Sehach, the commission's safely and traffic engineer, submitted a report of the council valualing the slate's work in 1958. Sehach said he was proud that Iowa's evaluation rose from 75 per cent from the previous year to HO per cent law), year in various fields of procedure. a rear wheel of the tractor after falling from the front where a ioading scoop had been mounted, Dr. John Edgerton said.

The Weather Lake Group Asks for Paving AMES (AP)—A delegation appeared before the Iowa Highway Commission Wednesday asking that a 15-mile stretch of Highway » in Butler County east of Allison be widened and repaved. Chief Engineer John Butter told the group rebuilding the road to federal standards would involve considerable expense. The delegation included state Sen. J. Kendall Lynes (R-Plainfield); Henry Burma and J. Francis Allen of Allison, and Harry H. Hagemann, Wavcrly, president of the State Board of Regents. Hagemann said that building a bypass around Waverly wtuld be a "tremendous waste of money" and nearly all Waverly residents look with disfavor on such a project. A delegation from Lake View, Manning, Sac City and Odebolt urged some kind of paving on the gravel road around state-owned Blnck Hawk Lake. Robert G. Lo- Rtm Lake View, said there are 267 acres of state property around the lake and it drew 200,000 visitors last year. Commission Chairman Robert Brice said the state could do nothing about paving roads in state parks until it paved 700 miles of primary roads that are yet unsurfaced.

Literature Award Goes to Italian Poet By CARL O. BOLANG STOCKHOLM, Sweden (AP) — Health Group Calls for Drive Against Smoking By ALTON BLAKICSLEE ATLANTIC CITY. N.J. (AP)— ,, ,. .

He is an associate of leftist causes who says he has always fought for world peace and friendship. The Swedish Academy cited Quasimodo for lyrical work which it said "with classical fire expresses the tragic experience of life in our times." Teaches History The poet, a onetime Jack-of-all trades, now teaches history of literature at Giuseppe Verdi Musical Conservatory in Milan. As in the four other Nobel categories this year, the monetary prize is $42,606. These prizes are the largest since the awards were begun in 1901. The money comes from income of a trust fund established by Alfred Nobel, the Swedish inventor of dynamite. Italian newspapers had announced Wednesday night that Quasimodo had won. He welcomed the news and talked with reporters in the drawing room of his modest Milan apartment. Quasimodo's own works are rooted in classic Greek and Italian culture, but he deals with contemporary events. He has written Prize See Page 6 Laud Iowa on Fire Prevention DES MOINES (AP)—Iowa is the first state in the nation to receive a commendation award for home fire prevention from the International Assn. of Fire Chiefs, the State Safety Department said Thursday. The award was presented to State Fire Marshal Ed J. Herron in recognition of results obtained in Iowa in fire prevention during the past four years. The plaque presented to the state signifies that Iowa has the most effective home inspection program in the country. As a result of the program, Iowa now has about 2,000 fewer home fires each year than four years ago when the program began. Iowa's fire death rate is down to 4.4 persons per 100,000 population, compared to a national rate of 8.7. INTERNAL INJURIES Kathryn Anne Stangl, 8, daughter of Mr. and*Mrs. Vincent P. Stangl of Carroll, suffered internal injuries early Wednesday afternoon after falling on her stomach and face from a slide. She was playing on St. Joseph's School grounds.

It said smoking is a major factor in lung cancer, now increasing at a rapid rate. If present trends continue, lung cancer "will claim the lives of more than one million present school children in this country before they reach the age of 70 years," the APHA declared in a resolution by its governing council. The resolution calls upon health authorities to undertake a broad educational effort, particularly in the young people's group, to prevent cigarette smoking and to collaborate with voluntary health organizations and educational authorities. The American Cancer Society has already begun such programs in some schools. The tobacco industry research committee had no immediate comment on the resolution. The committee, set up by the industry to study the effects of cigarettes on health, has said repeatedly that there is no scientific proof of a link between cigarette smoking and lung cancer. Full Patrol Force Out on Weekends DES MOINES (AP) — State Safety Commissioner D. M. Station Thursday ordered the Iowa Highway Patrol to cancel all weekend days off in order to have the patrol's full strength on the highways each weekend. The order, effective until further notice, Station said, will put 275 patrolmen on the highways during that period. Station said he issued the order "because I am sickened by the traffic death toll of the last two weekends. It's reached a point where drivers will simply have to be restrained by as much enforcement as we can muster." State Safety Department records list 28 deaths in the past two weekends. The four patrol spotter planes have been ordered to fly continuous missions throughout daylight hours each weekend. Pilots have been advised to concentrate on .speed and improper passing violations. However, Station said "the real solution to our current death record lies with the individual.

(AP) President Eisenhower said today he is willing to go to an East - West summit conference whenever the Public Phase Of Drive For Home Opens A group of volunteers Wednesday night at a meeting in the Kuker Building, launched solicitation in the first public phase of the campaign to build a modern home for the aged in Carroll. Their task will be to solicit endowment gifts from the people of the area. An endowment reserves for the contributor a room in the retirement section of St. Anthony Home for the Aged, to be built adjacent to St. Anthony Hospital in Carroll. Dr. Leo H. Kuker, general chairman of the campaign to raise $850,000 to build the home, told the workers that the number ol people above age 65 is steadily increasing and that there are 2,566 people in this age group in Carroll County alone. In the state there are 9,675 in need of the care offered in an up-to-date home for the aged, yet there are accommodations for only half this number. Of the total accommodations available in Iowa, only 678 are rated as satisfactory by State Department of Health standards. Organization of divisions to solicit gifts of retail and industrial establishments is well under way as is the group to solicit major gifts. • The new home is planned to consist of a 50-bed retirement section and a 50-bed nursing-convalescent section, "where the very latest techniques in the care of the aged will be used to bring the people in the new home longer, happier lives," Dr. Kuker said. Little Interest Shown in Loss Of Rail Service There appears to be little interest locally in opposing the proposal by the Chicago & North Western railway to drop the No. 5 and 6 mail and express trains between Chicago and C o u c i 1 Bluffs through Carroll, the Chamber of Commerce office here reported Thursday.

Martin, 25, Carroll, was dismissed in Justice Court here Thursday morn- Western Allies have coordinated their positions. The President told a news conference that without such prior coordination at a pre-summit session, the situation could be just a donnybrook—or confusion. For Early Meeting Eisenhower confirmed that he has been plugging — in private correspondence with the Western leaders — for an East-West summit meeting with Soviet Premier Nikita S. Khrushchev as early as December. But the President said he has no strong feelings regarding the time of any such session. The important thing, he emphasized, is that the West get together and present a united front at any summit session. Eisenhower stressed that he is ready and willing to meet at any time with French President Charles de Gaulle, British Prime Minister Harold Macmillan and West German Chancellor Konrad Adenauer. Eisenhower's news conference- attended by about 50 reporters- was held in the Georgian room of the Richmond Hotel here, a few miles from his vacation headquarters at the Augusta National Golf Club. The President told the newsmen at the outset that he had no startling news but had thought he ought to hold the session because Priority System Sufficiency ratings for all Iowa sufficiency basis leaves something' primary highways were set up by the commission a few years ago, taking into account safety factors, traffic counts and the condition of the highway surface.

Steel Union Wins a Stay of Injunction PHILADELPHIA 'API — Three Commissioner Jo Stong of Keo, , . . . , . . . sauqa said he felt the commission federal judges today granted an | staff Wfls to bp commcnded for ifg indefinite stay of a raft-Hartley , work but d ^ th( . engieerg injunction against the striking t ,. for a formu]a that not ()n , sleel workers. This means a continuation of eliminates construction strictly because of pressure from various the nationwide walkout, now 100 | groups, but which also is based on days old, pending a Circuit Court of Appeals ruling on the constitutionality of the 80-day injunction, granted Wednesday by a U.S. District Court judge in Pittsburgh. The Circuit. Court decision could come later today or possibly Friday depending upon the length of the arguments and the time needed for judicial meditation. The union completed its case just before a lunch recess. Court is scheduled to resume at 1:45 p.m. (EOT) with the government argument. Union Arguments Union counsel re-marshaled its arguments, declaring that the cirike has created no national emergency, that indeed the economy is booming, and that the injunction violates the basic rights of labor to strike, rights that are part of the collective bargaining code. The government, after a brief interval of uncertainty over the exact legal issue, said it was ready to go ahead with the main question of .constitutionality of the injunction, provided it could do so on the basis of briefs filed in the U.S. District Court in Pittsburgh. National Emergency Government lawyers said they desired to proceed promptly be- more factors than the present he had canceled one which had i cause this is a national emergen- been scheduled for Washington Wednesday.

Eisenhower added that he developed bronchitis about three years ago and the condition, he believes, since has become chronic. LABOR LEGISLATION — Speaking against the background of the marathon steel strike, Eisenhower said he feels the Taft-Hartley law does not have a very brilliant history. He added that he does not regard it as very good or adequate legislation. But the President said further, in response to a question, that he has no intention at this time of Ike See Page 6 the union has filed for a further stay. Circuit Judge Austin Staley in granting a temporary stay Wednesday did so on the condition the union file immediately for a further stay. It has done this. Judge Biggs looked over Staley's report, and indicated he wasn't quite sure of Judge Staley's intent. He said the "stay is now continued by the direction of this court pending disposition of this argument." George C. Doub, assistant attorney general, told the panel drawn from the U. S. 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals that he thought the government was here to argue only against the stay of the Steel See Page 9 111!) Sciimlch, justice of tlie peace said.

Anticipated Receipts The five-year program is predicated on anticipated receipts to- .alling $449,012,000. The construc- ;ion program would cost an estimated $312,043,650. The remainder of the money would go into such things as maintenance. 'As had been expected, the five- year plan calls for no work on the interstate system except for the completion of Interstate 80 from Des Moines to Davenport and construction of Interstate 35 from Des Moines to Ames. Commission Chairman Robert Brice of Waterloo said one of his major objections to the way the interstate ha's been constructed is the "piece-meal fashion" in which contracts previously have been let. "We averaged the priority ratings for the various legs of the interstate, such as Des Moines to Davenport, Des Moines to Council Bluffs, Council Bluffs to Sioux City and Ames to the Minnesota line," Brice said. "The highest average fell to the Des Moines-Davenport segment so that's the one we'll build first." AMES (AP) — The Iowa Highway Commission Thursday approved $3,292,749 in ro non truct proved $3,292,749 in road construction work, only a small amount of which involves the interstate system. The bids are subject to approval ot the U. S. Bureau of Public roads. The only interstate projects let involved various concrete slope protection on Interstate 80 and 29 and signs along Interstate 35 In Polk County. That contract went to National Advertising Co. of Bedford Park, 111., for $29,022. Interstate contracts let included: fighter plane. The Germans remain barred and asked for a new hearing.
