One of the year's worst weekend tolls boosted the death total for this year to 560—77 more than were killed on this date last year. Little Effect A crackdown by Slate Safety Commission Director Donald M. Station apparently did little to slow thc tragic traffic death pace. Station last week announced all weekend days off for highway patrolmen had been cancelled in order to have the patrol's full strength of 275 officers on the highways. Station said 28 persons had been lulled in traffic accidents the previous two weekends, and said he was "sickened" by the figure. Two Dubuque youths and a Dunlap couple were killed in separate one-car accidents. Harold G. Benda, 20, and Dennis Bausch. 21, died when a car driv- •eii by Benda missed a curve and crashed into boulders on Highway 52 three miles south of Dubuque Sunday. Another'passenger in the car, Ronald Schnee, 23, of Dubuque, was hospitalized and reported in fair condition. Mr. and Mrs. Glen Wright, in their 50s, were killed Saturday night when their car left a county road about seven miles east of Moorhead. Three other passengers iu the car were hospitalized. Othal Hodges of Magnolia was listed in fair condition. His wife, Mary, and Billy Dugdale, 10, of Moorehead, were listed in poor condition. Other Victims Other victims included: William Beimers, 57, Sioux Center night policeman, who was killed Sunday night when he \vas struck by a car on Highway ?5 two miles north of Sioux Center. Bajema had followed a car out of town to advise the driver his lights had failed. After talking with the driver, Bajema stepped into the opposite lane of traffic and was struck by a car driven by John Van De Vegte, 19, of Rock Valley.

Tests planned at Iowa Stale University might tell the rocket experts one day much of what they want to know. Unusual Lab Focal point for this experimen- Light Snow, Rain Falls at Dubuque By The Associated Press A light snow mixed with rain fell at Dubuque Monday morning, as Iowa temperatures hovered from the freezing poinl up. Cedar Rapids reported 32 degrees, and other morning lows ranged up to 45 at Sioux City. More snow was forecast for northern counties Monday night. Cooler weather and occasional rain was the order of Monday, and the rains were due to continue Monday night. Precipitation was widespread but generally light in the 24 hours ended early Monday. The outlook for Tuesday morning is for readings ranging from 28 degrees in the north to the middle 30s in the south, and a continuation of the colder weather through thc day. tation is an unusual engineering laboratory on the ISU campus. You won't find test tubes hanging in racks. In fact, you probably wouldn't find more than a few people in the laboratory at any time of the day or night. There just isn't room. A huge, 150-ton structure of solid graphite and concrete occupies much of the space. It is ominous looking, yet quite safe. It is the nuclear reaclor used in Iowa State's fledgling nuclear engineering program. ISU in 1951 became the second school in the United Stales to offer advanced degrees in nuclear engineering. North Carolina State was first. The program at the Ames school apparently thrived during the past eight years because it is now one of ISU's largest graduate programs in engineering. 1 Class of 32 The present class of 32 students includes civilians as well as Army, Navy and Air Force personnel. The reaclor might well be called a visual aid for these students. They use it for work on research projects and to help in their research papers. Just what is nuclear engineering?

The surprise action ibreached the solid front of the basic steel industry in its long and bitter contract fight with the United Steelworkers Union.

This has Reds Push New Line on Disarm Plan By STANLEY JOHNSON MOSCOW (AP) — Soviet publicists have opened a new campaign to convince the West that complete disarmament offers it better economic opportunities than continuance of the arms race. At the same time Soviet organs make clear that there is no change in the Communist creed that capitalism is doomed whether or not it is shored up by arms production. Main Theme This is one of the main themes being beamed abroad and the emphasis on it is likely to increase. Domestically the point hammered home by every possible means is that Premier Nikita Khrushchev wants peace and prosperity. Not since Stalin's 70th birthday has any event been so publicized as Khrushchev's trip to the United States. Daily, mass meetings throughout the Soviet Union praise the Premier for having made the trip which speakers say has convinced the American people of the sincerity of the Soviet desire for peace. Every issue of every newspaper and magazine stresses the same theme. There is a color film about the trip and a new book, "To Live in Peace and Friendship." It is against this background that one should read the assurances that the Soviet disarmament proposals are not intended deliberately or by chance to cause an economic upheaval in capitalist countries. Takes Issue The Literary Gazette this week took issue with Harvard philosopher Robert P. Wolf, who wrote the New York Times that Marx, if alive today, would say "capitalism prospers only on preparations for war whether a war is being carried on or not." "Marxist-Leninists are very far from thinking that modern capitalism can prosper in any event— with or without the help of military profits," the magazine said. "Marxists look upon present day capitalism as something decaying and dying." Theorist Leonid Leontyev explained: "the simple truth is that capitalism is as pregnant with crisis as a cloud is with rain. Whether there is an arms race or not, crises are inevitable while capitalism exists." But the article said that the end of the arms race, contrary to the "croaking of the arms merchants," would open up broad new prospects for increased international commerce, growiHg markets and consequently growing employment. For Anti-Proton Discovery- Nobel Prizes to 2 U.S. Scientists STOCKHOLM (AP)—Two American atomic scientists today were awarded the 1959 Nobel physics prize for the discovery of the anti-proton, proving that matter exists in two forms, as particles and anti-particles. The physics winners are Italian- born Emilio Segre, 54, and Dr. Owen Chamberlain, 39, born in San Francisco. Both are attached to the University of California at Berkeley. The chemistry prize this year was awarded to Prof. Jaroslaw Heyrovsky, 68, a Czech. It was the first Nobel award ever made to Czechoslovakia. Some politicians kiss only the babes who are old enough to vote. Heyrovsky was honored for developing the polarographic method of rapidly analyzing the precise chemical composition of complicated substances. It has been particularly valuable in the field of metallurgy. Segre and Chamberlain are the 17th and 18th Americans to win the Nobel physics award. They will divide $42,606. The Swedish Academy of Sciences, which awards the prizes provided by the inventor of dynamite, the late Alfred Nobel, said the discovery of the American nuclear physicists was one of Cosmic implications. Using the giant atom-smashing bevatron at Berkeley, Calif., they found thai by clashing their newly discovered anti-proton and a proton together, both dissolved into light. The awarding body said the anti-proton—the electrically negative 1 mirror image of the proton, or hydrogen nucleus — had been predicted 30 years ago by Paul Dirac of Britain, who shared the 1933 Nobel Prize with Erwin Schroedinger of Berlin University. The discovery by Segre and Chamberlain of the anti-proton was heralded as an important step toward introducing some order into the bewildering micro-world of some 30 odd sub-atomic particles known to scientists today. The two physicists published their findings in the fall of 1955. The two winners were assisted in their work by Dr. Clyde Weigand and Dr. Thomas Ypsilantis of the California University staff. Segre was born at Tivoli, Italy, and was a student at the University of Rome of Enrico Fermi, the pioneer nuclear physicist and 1938 Nobel winner. Segre taught at the Rome University and then at the University of Palermo. In 1938 he was one of a group o£ prominent Italian scientists who, with Fermi, went into exile to escape facist rule. Segre has worked U.S. Had Only 2 Atomic Bombs When Japan Hit WASHINGTON (AP) — America had only two atomic bombs when the decision was made to drop them on Japan in World War II, according to a posthumuously published interview with Gen. George C. Marshall. The magazine U.S. News & World Report, in a copyrighted article today, said Marshall granted the interview to one of its editors, John P. Sutherland, in 1954 and 1955 with the understanding it would not be published until after his death. The soldier-diplomat died Oct. 16. Marshall said in the interview that America's military leaders had no idea of the destructive power of the A-bomb until one was exploded in New Mexico on July 16, 1945. Even after that, he said, there was no clear-cut plan on how to use the new weapon. "When we got the bombs we had to use them in the best possible way to save American lives," he said. "I heard all kinds of discussions on how we should use the first one. Some wanted to drop it on the Sea of Japan. But we didn't know how it would work in water. It might foe a dud, or get out of control. We just didn't know. "Others wanted to drop it in a u'ce p."Hdy to save the lives of the Japanese. But we only had two, and the situation demanded shock action. After using the two bombs against Japan, there would be nothing in reserve." Until the awesome power of the bomb became known, it had been planned to use nine of them in an invasion of Japan, Marshall said. The invasion was set for Sept. 23, 1945. Japan surrendered on Aug. 14, eight days after the first A-bomb was dropped on Hiroshima. ^**^+ Driver Charged After 2 Cars Hit A traffic summons for failure to yield the right of way was given Earl J. Lux, 50, Carroll, as a result of a two-car accident at the intersection of Third and Northeast streets about 11:10 a.m. Sunday, city police reported. A car driven by Lux was in collision with a car driven by John J. Ludwig, 73, Carroll. The Ludwig auto was northbound and turning west on Third and the Lux was eastbourid on Third at the time of the accident, police said. No injuries were reported in the accident, police said. Cub Scout Pack 101 Will Be Reorganized Cub Scout Pack No. 101, sponsored by the Knights of Columbus, will be reorganized at a meeting Tuesday at 7 p.m. in the K.C. Hall. Each boy who intends to become a Cub Scout must be accompanied by his mother to the meeting, so that the parent's interest can be determined, and so that she may know the program of Cub Scouting. Last year, seven dens of Scouts were part of this pack, which included 73 boys. The reorganization meeting is in charge of Ed Marz, cubmaster.
