Evening for .18 Cents P«-r Week / ~ Co py Free Counsel Offered to Objectors- Mayor Urges Active Opposition to Proposal to Drop Last Two Passenger Trains Mayor A. N. Neil Saturday urged Carroll citizens to actively oppose a proposal by the Chicago &• North Western railway to discontinue its passenger trains No. 5 westbound and 6 eastbound between Chicago and Council Bluffs through Cm-roll, effective Nov. 15. "I have received a letter from the attorney for the State Commerce Commission requesting that those who are interested turn in their names and addresses so that they can appear before the commission and voice their c o m- plaints." the mayor told The Daily Times Herald. "If the people of our community are interested in passenger service, they should voice their opinion and also indicate a willingness to testify before the Iowa State Commerce commission as requested in their attorney's letter." Free Counsel Waldo F. Wheeler of D e s Moines, commerce counsel, has notified Mayor Neu that his office will represent free of charge all interested Iowa parties in a hearing. All persons who express an interest in being present at such a hearing will be notified when and if a hearing is scheduled. The mayor expressed himself as surprised at the lack of interest shown to date in 'the railroad's announced intention of dropping the important service here.

(Paige and Paige Photo) Khrushchev Helped Put Chinese Reds on Trial By JOHN RODERICK TOKYO (AP)—Though he may not have wished it, Soviet Premier Nikita S. Khrushchev has helped place his big Asian partner, Communist China, on trial before world public opinion. The verdict is not yet in. But by her own actions, Red China is convicting herself. The Soviet Premier contributed indirectly to this state of affairs Reds Propose Huge Bering Straits Dam MOSCOW (AP)—The Soviets today reported plans for a huge dam' in Bering Strait between Alaska and Siberia—a clam which they said could transform arctic v. Msli-s into fertile fields. Close Soviet - American cooperation would be needed for the project, Tass, Ihe Soviet news agency, said the idea is for a 4(i-mile barrier of reinforced concrete pontoons between the western tip of Alaska and the Chukchi Peninsula. Designs for the dam have been completed by a Soviet engineer and details have been pub- l) ; ,i,i See Page 7 Weather by launching a "peace drive" before, during and after his visit to the United States in September. Fanned Asiatic Hopes The Western world may have reacted with some skepticism to a Khrushchev bearing peace gifts. | But he succeeded in fanning the hopes of millions of Asians who want to see an end to international tension and bickering. When Khrushchev followed his American tour with a trip to Pei- ping, many hoped anxiously that Red Chinese leader Mao Tze-tung would support him with words and deeds. Instead, the Chinese attacked the United States with new vehemence. Then this week Red Chinese guards fought a bloody fight with Indian patrols in the disputed bor- i der area between the two coun- | tries. This occurred as Peiping ! continued its old song that it wished to solve the dispute by peaceful negotiations. Angry Reaction Red China has reacted with anger at being put on trial. It lashed qut at a United Nations resolution calling on Peiping to respect the fundamental rights of the Tibetan people. It showed no contrition for its bloody repression of the Tibetan revolt. "Tibet is China's territory," it declared. It has accused Washington of suffering from a "peace panic," and rejected any idea of renouncing force to solve the thorny For- Red China . . . See Page 7 Go Ahead ahd Worry, But Not About Worrying By FRANK CAREY Associated Press Science Writer PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Doctors are junking the old "don't- worry, take - it - easy" pitch in treating patients with high blood pressure. The new slant: Go ahead and worry, but don't worry about your worrying. That was the word today from Dr. Robert W. Wilkins of Boston, an authority on an aliment that afflicts some 15 million Americans. A former president of the American Heart Association, Dr. Wilkins told interviewers: "We used to say to a patient with high blood pressure-'take it easy and don't worry.' "Well, if there 'are two things a hypertensive congenitally can not do, it's those two things. "By and large, there are some lazy hypertensives. But, in families of hypertensives, if traced, they are go-getters. They are enthusiastic and they worry to beat "They may not look it. They look placid, but this isn't deep- seated in the psyche somewhere where you have to dig it up with a pitch fork with a psychiatrist. "They are tense people. I never tell my patients not to worry. Instead, I say: 'You are going to worry, just don't worry about the fact that you worry.' " IOWA FORECAST Diminishing winds, clear and colder Sal unlay night, lows 30 northeast to 3» southwest.

Border Clashes Cause Grave Anxiety: Nehru By WATSON SIMS MEERUT, India (AP) — Prime Minister Nehru said today the situation with Communist China over India's northern borders is causing grave anxiety. He called on the people to re- The man who. thinks he Is more intelligent than his wife must be married to a smart woman, main calm and not be swept away by emotion. "The situation has caused and is continuing to cause grave anxiety," Nehru said. "But I do not say there will be war with China on this issue." He was answering questions put by reporters while touring this city. In New Delhi, 40 miles away, a British-owned newspaper, The Staetsman, suggested Nehru's government may be forced by public pressure to sever diplomatic relations with Red China as a: result of the alleged ambush of, Indian policemen in a disputed, border area Wednesday. j The government said Friday Chinese troops, striking 40 miles deep in North Kashmir, killed 17 Indians and wounded three. J Dr.Anneberg Heads Drive For Retarded Dr. A. Reas Anneberg has been appointed honorary camp a i g n chairman for the Carroll County Association for Retarded Children, which will conduct a drive during National Retarded Children's Week, Nov. 15-27. Ed Hanneman, president, said funds raised during this period will support a program of service to the community's mentally-retarded children and adults, and contribute to medical research to find preventive measures. In accepting the honorary chairmanship, Dr. Anneberg said, "This widespread problem of mental retardation is one which deserves greater and greater public attention. We cannot, it seems to me, neglect a problem for which so much good can be done, if the funds are made available." The Carroll County Association for Retarded Children is a local, non-profit, voluntary agency devoted to the interest of the mentally retarded children and adults in our area. Funds raised by the Carroll unit will be used to expand local services and research in the field of mental retardation. Quiz Winners Revise Stories On '2V TV Show NEW YORK AP)—Charles Van Doren and Hank Bloomgarden, two top money winners, have revised their original statements about the television quiz show "Twenty-One." ' Both men showed up voluntarily but separately at Dist. Atty. Frank S. Hogan's office Friday. Hogan said the changes they made were "substantial" but declined to .specify just what they were. Hogan said the possibility of perjury action is being considered but that nothing would be done until after Van Doren appears Nov. n in Washington before a House subcommittee investigating TV quiz shows, Van Doren, 33-year-old English instructor at Columbia University \vho won $129,000 on "Twenty- One", appeared first at Hogan's office with his attorney, Carl J. Hubino. He spent about an hour with Asst. Dist. Atty. Joseph Stone, who had investigated the rigging of quiz shows. Then he talked several minutes with Ho- <e,iW. About three hours later, Bloomgarden, a 30-year-old public relations consultant who won $98,500 on the show, appeared at Hogan's office. He said he was there to sign and read a statement he had given Oct. 5 to amplify an earlier statement about the program.

To help In research and instruction, I.SII has put the finishing touches on an electronic "hrain"—a high speed digital computer—and has In operation the first nuclear reactor for tcnchlnc purposes west of the Mississippi lUver. This Is the first of two stories about the men and machines behind IStJ's advanced technological program). By DAN PERKES AMES (AP)—The young, crew cut instructor fed a perforated tape into the monitoring board. Suddenly—like something out of a science fiction thriller—whirring r.oises filled the room, a myriad of lights flashed on a huge, box- shaped device nearby and the answer to a complicated mathematical pcoblem was clacked out on a teletype machine. Over In Seconds It was over in a matter of seconds. And what may have taken a mathematician weeks or even months to do was accomplished in the tirrie it would take you to say "Jack Robinson." The machine is a high-speed digital computer, or electronic "brain"—if you prefer. At Iowa State University it's called the "Cyclone." The Cyclone, which would cost you about a million dollars if you could find one to buy, was built from scratch on the university campus for about $330,000. A handful of undergraduate students—under the supervision of instructors—built this complicated piece of equipment by hand over a three-year period. Borrowed Plan Plans for the computer were borrowed from the University of Illinois, which has its own brain called "Illiac." The director of the university's Statistical Laboratory, Dr. T. A. Bancroft, said Saturday the machine represents the "realization of the desires and aspirations of the many staff members at Iowa State who use quantitative research methods.... "ISU can look forward to a place of leadership in scientific machine computing and computer design research," he added. Engineers, physicists, chemists, and statisticians can take the most complicated of mathematical problems, feed it to Cyclone Cyclone See Page 7 As Talks Set to Resume- Ike Urges Both Sides to Speed Steel Pact By JOHN MOODY PITTSBURGH (AP)—Steel negotiators prepared to resume bargaining today and President Eisenhower strongly urged them to keep at it until the 102-day steel strike is settled. The President made his new plea through an aide at his vacation headquarters in Augusta, Ga. James C. Hagerty, White House press secretary, said of the President: "He sincerely hopes that when both sides renew their negotiations this afternoon in Pittsburgh, they realize fully the obligation they owe to the United States and that they remain in consultation and negotiation until they settle it." The head of the President's three-man fact-finding board in the dispute said in Philadelphia that he has been in touch with! Joseph Finnegan, chief of the Fed-1 eral Mediation Service. I Dr. George W. Taylor said he and Finnegan talked over the matter of how they could best coop- crate in the event the fact-finding board is reconvened. Taylor and Hagerty both denied a published report that Taylor had requested Eisenhower's permission to resume mediation efforts. The new negotiations were arranged under a federal court directive. Neither the United Steelworkers Union nor the industry would comment on the possibility of new proposals being made. In Washington, Finnegan said if the talks "get mired down" he will summon both sides to Washington "as we are required to do 2 U.S. Scientists May Get 1959 Nobel Awards Davenport Man Dies of Injuries DAVENPORT (AP) — James Kerr, 20, of Davenport died in a hospital early Saturday of injuries received in an auto accident late Friday night. Police said three cars were involved in the accident at an intersection here. Two other Davenport men were injured. Robert Gill, 22, and Michael McMahon, 22, were report- i ed in satisfactory condition at Mercy Hospital. By CARL 0. BOLANG STOCKHOLM, Sweden (AP) — Stockholm afternoon newspapers today named two American atomic scientists as probable winners of the 1959 N.obel physics prize. The Americans mentioned are More Planes Raid Havana With Leaflets By RICHARD VALERIANI HAVANA (AP) — Mysterious planes slipped past Cuban air force patrols and showered Havana with more antigovernment leaflets Friday. The raids were the latest in a series that began Wednesday—a day that brought the most violent show of opposition to Fidel Castro since he took over the Cuban government New Year's Day. Denounces U.S. Castro charged that counterrevolutionary planes based in the United States carried out the raids. He denounced U.S. authorities for failing to halt them. He is expected to take quick advantage of a U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation report Friday that former Cuban revolutionary air force chief Pedro Diaz Lanz admitted flying a leaflet Cuba .... See Page 7 Dr. Emilio Segre, 54, and Dr. Owen Chamberlain, 49, both of the University of California in Berkeley. Prof. Jaroslav Heyrovsky, 69, head of the Polargraphic Institute in Prague, was listed as a chemistry prize candidate. Winners of both the chemistry and physics prizes will be announced Monday by the Swedish Academy of Science. Heyrovsky is the father of polargraphy—a method of analyzing complicated chemical solutions with the aid of electrodes, Segre and Chamberlain are accredited with the discovery of the antiproton, a negatively charged proton. The newspaper Expressen also listed American space scientist James Van Allen and the German rocket pioneer Hermann Oberth as qualified Nobel Prize candidates, but it devoted practically a full page to the work of the two Berkeley scientists. Assisted by Dr. Clyde Wiegand and Dr. Thomas Ypsilantis, Segre and Chamberlain made their discovery in September 1955, with a specially constructed machine j known as the bevatron. The anti-proton was long sought | as a means of explaining some of the mysteries of the universe.

This possibly could -come today, tomorrow, next week or not at all, he said, adding: It all depends on the prog- •ess made. Finnegan said he telephoned Taylor Friday night to pass on discussions he held with Secretary of Labor James P. Mitchell over whether to get both sides to resume negotiations voluntarily or to order them to Washington. Asked if he knew of any new offer being made by either side, Finnegan said he did not. The government* already has obtained a Taft-Hartley injunction to send the 500,000 strikers back to the mills for 80 days. But the U.S. Third Circuit Court of Appeals blocked enforcement of the injunction pending outcome of a union appeal. Ruling Soon But the court directed both sides to make every effort to settle the strike by collective bargaining while the appeal was being studied. A court ruling on the appeal is expected early next week. The meeting is the first sinca joint negotiations collapsed last week in Washington. In Washington, Secretary of Labor James P. Mitchell said he was gratified to see the two parties resume peace talks. He urged "around the clock" negotiations • until the dispute is settled. The union was first to suggest reopening of negotiations. USW President David J. McDonald sent :elegrams to 96 steel companies, inviting them to meet with union committees in Pittsburgh Monday Steel . . . . See Page 7 Credits Newspaper Advertising for IGA Food Stores' Success CHICAGO (AP)—The president ol one of the world's largest food j store groups said Saturday that no advertising medium is compara- I hie to the daily press in selling food at the retail level. Don R. Grimes, head of Independent Grocers Alliance, cited 34 years experience as a basis for his statement. "If it wasn't for the advertising columns of newspapers, we never could have built IGA to the prestige level it now holds in the food .selling field," he told a seminar of IGA advertising managers. Grimes criticized one-shot ads and advised repetition for effective selling. "Many factors govern the success of a productive advertisement and consistency of insertion, in my opinion, is paramount," he said. "It is consistency that acts as the fertilizer that makes well- conceived advertisements produce bumper-crop sales." Britain's Lady-Like Bull Gets New Lease on Life Two Injured in Car Crash Here Two persons were hospitalized with injuries received here Friday in a collision of cars at the intersection of Eighth and Adams streets, the sheriff's office said. Victor J. Schumacher, 37, Carroll, was hospitalized with contusions on the right side of his face. His progress was satisfactory and he was held in the hospital Saturday for observation, the attending physician at St. Anthony hospital said. Leo D. Butler 17, Glidden, was hospitalized with scalp lacerations and a mild concussion but was scheduled for release from the hospital Saturday, his attending physician said. The car driven by Butler was northbound on Adams street when, it was in collision with a car driven by Schumacher wh" was eastbound on Eighth street. The accident happened about 1:30 p.m. Friday, the sheriff's office said. By RAYMOND E. PALMER LONDON (AP) — Brook Man- dore, whose prettiness and gentle manners didn't satisfy official British expectations of what a bull should be, has a new owner, a new name and a new lease on life. The brassy tabloid Daily Mirror bought the 13-month-old bull from farmer Will Titcumb for 1,000 pounds ($2,800) and whisked him away for a life befitting his new name—Ferdinand. "That's the name to suit a gentle bull, a bull that wears flowers, drinks honey, loves dogs and likes people," the paper said. Brook Mandore fits the pattern of Walt Disney's movie Ferdinand which loved flowers and detested fighting. But heartaches may not be over yet for the bull-beauty branded an outcast by Britain's Ministry of Agriculture. The ministry expressed fears if he was used for breeding—cither as Brook Mandore or Ferdinand- he "would 'be liable to beget inferior and defective stock." He was ordered put to death. The Daily Mirror said, "He stays alive—but to comply with ministry requirements, it is necessary to ensure that he can never have a family." The new owners did not go into details oh how this is going to be ensured. But farmer Titcumb's wife said "He'll not be castrated either." A spokesman for the Mirror said "No comment." Ferdinand won't be lonely but the Daily Mirror said "His career as a stock-raising bull is over and he won't be able to be a papa. That is the price for his reprieve." His new home is in a grassy paddock near Benson, Oxford- shire. He is sharing a paddock with a goat named Joker—an accomplished television actor—and a lamb called Daisy May. "He can just graze quietly," said the Mirror. Lifesaving Award to Rosemary Nagl Rosemary Nagl, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Albert Nagl, an eighth- grade student at SS. Peter and Paul School, will receive a national V.F.W. life-saving award Sunday at the V.F.W. state convention at Marshalltown.
