HIGHTOWER WASHINGTON (AP)—U.S. officials are talking about a new summit conference timetable now that French President Charles de Gaulle has slowed the rush to negotiate with Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev. State Dept. Outlook At the moment the outlook, as State Department authorities see it, is this: 1. A Western summit meeting in early December just before the scheduled session of NATO foreign ministers opening Dec. 15. This would bring together President Eisenhower, De Gaulle, British Prime Minister Harold MacMillan and West German Chancellor Konrad Adenauer. 2. An East-West summit conference at Geneva probably in March although present speculation also includes February and April as possible meeting months. The Geneva session would bring together Khrushchev, Eisenhower, Macmillan and De Gaulle. Between these two heads of government meetings there would be time for detailed planning of Germany, disarmament questions and other issues which the East- West negotiations may take up. In the meantime, some further development of East-West understanding may result from the projected visit to France of Khrushchev for talks with De Gaulle. These talks presumably will be similar in nature to his Camp David discussions with President Eisenhower last month. Favors Early Meeting Eisenhower told a news conference at Augusta, Ga., Thursday that he favored an East-West summit meeting by the end of this year but made clear he had not insisted on it. At one point, it is understood, Dec. 7 was suggested to Macmillan and De Gaulle as a target date. Macmillan wanted the session as soon as possible. But De Gaulle insisted in correspondence with the President and Prime Minister that there must be very careful preparations of Western policies so that the three would deal with Khrushchev from common positions. The French government said it favored an East-West meeting next spring. There is considerable speculation here that De Gaulle may also have had other considerations in mind. He may have wanted to arrange the Khrushchev visit to France prior to formal East-West negotiations. He may also have wanted more time in which to increase French prestige by exploding a nuclear weapons device in the Sahara Desert.

Mostly fair Saturday colder south and east, highs in 50s. Outlook for Sunday—Mostly fair and a little warmer. FIVE-DAY IOWA FORECAST Temperatures will average slightly above normal Saturday through next Wednesday. Afternoon highs will be from around 60 in the north to the middle 60s in the south. Overnight lows will be from around 40 in the north to the middle 40s in the south. Cooler at the first of the period, followed by a warming trend the first of next week. Precipitation will average .10 to .20 of an inch south and west to around .25 of an inch northeast, occurring as scattered showers early in the period. WASHINGTON (AP) — Living costs, as measured by the government, climbed three tenths of one per cent last month to another record high. . The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported 'today that its index rose to 125.2 per cent of the 1947-49 av- erag. Every major Item in the budget of the average city family went up except transportation. Buying Power Cut The rising costs mean that almost IVi cents has been whittled from the buying power of the consumer's dollar in the last six months. But Hershey S. Riley, price chief of the BLS, rejected a reporter's suggestion that "new creeping inflation" may have set in. Much of the increase last month was normal for the season, Riley said. Businessmen to Aid Home Fund Drive Robert Matt and W. D. Keith have accepted the joint chairmanship of the Retail and Industrial Division of St. Anthony Home for the Aged Building Fund, the committee in charge reported Friday. By securing the assistance of other businessmen in the Carroll area, they will form solicitation teams to secure the assistance of other businessmen in building the new home for the aged, Dr. Leo H. Kuker, general chairman, explained. St. Anthony Home for the Aged will consist of a 50-bed retirement and a 50-bed nursing-convalescent section. The cost will be $850,000. It will be built adjacent to the hospital and will be administered by the Franciscan Sisters who have served Carroll for the past half century. The new home will give total care, and bring to the people housed there the latest medical findings on the care of the aged, Dr. Kuker added. As a result of the rise, about 1,236,000 workers whose pay checks are geared to fluctuations in the price index will receive pay increases of 1 to 3 cents hourly. These include 850,000 railroad, pullman company and railway express employes whose pay is adjusted semi-annually for any rise in consumer prices. These workers received no increase last March but now will get 3 cents more an hour. Pay Boosts Another 370,000 workers in the electrical equipment and aircraft industries will receive pay boosts averaging a cent an hour. The companies include General Electric and Sylvania in the electrical equipment field and Douglas, Northrop, McDonnell and Hayes among aircraft firms. About 16,000 workers in various other industries will receive 2- cent hourly increases. Looking ahead, it appears that foreseeable increases in automobile, gasoline, fuels and some other prices may offset an expected slight decline in food prices in the October index, which will be issued a month hence. Newspapermen of District Meet Here Approximately 40 Iowa newspapermen were attending a district meeting of the Iowa Press Assn., at the Burke Motor Inn Friday. The group discussed general newspaper problems. Wives visited the Viv Bell home at Coon Rapids where they inspected antiques. Gordon Aasgaard of Lake Mills, president; Don Reed, Des Moines, manager, Kenneth Robinson, Bayard, former president of the Iowa League of Municipalities and S. E. Tennant, Des Moines, state super- itendent of printing, were among those present. James Waters of Carroll was a speaker. IndiaCharges China With a New Attack NEW DELHI, India (AP)—India tonight charged Red China with a fierce new attack on an Indian patrol in the Ladakh sector of Kashmir. It said 17 Indians were killed in the fight Wednesday and that others are missing. Three were wounded. Peiping claims the Ladakh sector among about 40,000 square miles of border territory under the Indian flag. Chinese detachments occupied parts of it months ago and have built a road across it to link Tibet and extreme western China. A government statement said the attack took place 40 miles inside the Indian border. The Indian detachment was surprised by heavy and sudden fire from Chinese troops entrenched on a hilltop," it said. The Indian troops fired back but were reported "overwhelmed by superior strength and the use of grenades and mortars." The Indian government, calling this a matter of "grave consequence," has protested strongly to Peiping. "The area is about 40 to 50 miles west of the traditional China-India frontier which has been shown in official Indian maps,' the Foreign Ministry said. "The Chinese government could not be under any misapprehension about the traditional border." Standard Time to Return on Sunday NEW YORK 'AP) — Several million people will get an extra hour Sunday. But it will be mere repayment for one they lost back in April. It is the end of daylight saving time in New England and scattered areas elsewliere. The change to standard time becomes official at 2 a. m., at which time clocks should be turned back to 1 a. m. A number of places on daylight saving time made the switch a month ago. But in Kentucky it will last un til Oct. 31 except in Lexington and Frankfort. They have daylight saving time all year. Teamsters Agree to New Voting Rules Wind Hits Church- Havoc was wreaked by a sudden gust of wind at the site of the St. Paul's Lutheran church under construction here Friday morning. Shown here is the extensive damage caused when 14 laminated wood trusses, or arches, were blown down into the partially completed nave and a portion of the completed north wall. Floyd Brainard, 66, Storm Lake, employee of the C. I. Hersom Construction Company, Laurens, was injured when struckJ>y falling beams in the nave. The flattened trusses are shown in the top picture and are resting on the floor of the nave. The twisted debris in the bottom picture shows about 30 feet of the 40 foot high north wall in the basement. The loss was covered by insurance, Rev. Harold Kieck, pastor, said.

The monitors, who have watched over Teamsters affairs since January 1958, petitioned Judge Letts after failing to work out an agreement with the union. One major change allows union members, whose dues are paid by checkoff, to run for local office. In the past, the union has taken the position that members whose we are in favor of a bill that would provide for one house strictly on population.

The monitors contended this was a device to keep control of locals in the hands of incumbents. The union also agreed to have an outside independent agency conduct elections in the next 12 locals to be removed from trusteeship. After that, the monitors said, they will consider the matter again to decide whether this procedure is required in other locals dary Education Unemployment Support of Poor Municipal Airport Construction Urban Renewal River and Harbor Improvement X X LCUUi C iO I CVJUJI UU 111 UUJCi lUV,CIAi3 _ i _ T ..i removed from trusteeship.
