Hoover Rests After Major Surgery Today NEW YORK (AP) - Former President Herbert Hoover, 88, underwent an operation today for removal of an intestinal lesion. Hoover withstood the operation well and is resting satisfactorily, a spokesman at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center told newsmen. "We do not know at this time whether the lesion was malignant (cancerous) or not," the spokesman said. The operation look more than three hours.

Triche said Cooper was "subtracting apples from oranges" in claiming a 30 per cent increase in unclassified state workers. The Davis leader said civil service officials have been keeping a close check on the ratio of classified to unclassified personnel and Unclassified Help In State Totaled BATON ROUGE (AP) -About 2,600 unclassified workers are on itate payrolls, records of the Department of Civil Service showed Monday. Civil Service Director W. W. McDougall said his office makes periodic checks of all state payrolls and the last check showed that figure. Critics of Gov. Jimmie H. Davis' administration recently claimed there were 15,000 unclas- •ified stale workers. In answer to a question, McDougall said the only agencies excluded from his total were the offices of governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general and state tax collector for the city of New Orleans, He added that state boards, including levee boards, are not included in the records. These departments, he said, are completely unclassified under the law, as are the boards. McDougall was asked if he could reconcile his 2,600 figure with U.S. Census reports showing 15,000 unclassified state workers. "I cannot reconcile any figures available in this office with the census figures," he said. Rep.

Cooper cited the figures in blaming the governor for defeat of attempts to pass legislation to require a central listing of all state employes with civil service. Davis called Cooper's charges a fairy tale and he said he knew of no such census department figures. Cooper said the census figures try. have said there was no appreciable change during three administrations, No damage to the Acropolis or the Parthenon, the ancient rums on the hillside overlooking Athens, was apparent. The quake struck the Pelopon- nesus peninsula at 1:02 p.m. It was also recorded on the island of Crete and in southern Greece. Police said they were unable to get word on the extent of destruction and casualties because all communications south of Corinth were disrupted. Across the Adriatic, the trembling of the earth was felt in a belt from Bari, in the heel of the Italian Boot; to Naples, on the west coast. Thousands fled into the streets in panic. At Bari, damage apparently was limited to a few cracks in buildings and falling of two cornice stones. The shocks also were felt in Reggio Calabria, at the toe of the Boot, and across the Strait of; Messina at Messina, Sicily, an j area where a quake in 1908 killed 1100,000.

Tropical Storm Alma Brushes Carolina Coast HATTERAS. N.C. (AP)-Tropical storm Alma gave the North Carolina coast and Outer Banks a light brushoff today and moved northeastward along the Atlantic shore. The center of the feeble storm, described by the Miami Weather Bureau as poorly organized, was located in the vicinity of Capa Hatteras. N.C., at 8 a.m., moving northeastward at about 13 miles per hour. Maximum winds were estimated at 45 m.p.h. just east of the center with squalls of 30 to 40 m.p.h. extending some 200 miles in the eastern semicircle. The western half was described as relatively weak. The storm brought drenching rains and the Weather Bureau said these will occur in the coastal areas northwest and north of the center. No damage was reported. Cape Hatteras reported 5.2t inches of rain between 1 and 6 a.m. a period when the storm was centered southwest of there. Winds along the coast have generally been only between 30 and 40 m.p.h. However, Cape Hatteras reported winds from 35 tn 43 | m.p.h. i No flooding was reported.

McDougall said there is "some difference in what the census bureau thinks a state employe is and ours," McDougall said his department makes its periodic checks on unclassified workers to determine if any has been hired who should be on civil service and to determine whether agencies have more than allowed by law. He said as of July 31 there were 34,660 classified workers on slate payrolls, a decrease of 609 from April 30, Since then more classified workers have been terminated by agencies seeking to bring payrolls in line with reduced 196263 budgets. is unconstitutional. Triche cited section 12, article f, of the state constitution as having a prohibition against investment of state funds. He said the proposed code of ethics bill defeated by the legislature was potentially dangerous. The bill, he said, would have created a "super - government" empowered to pass laws, exercise authority and pass judgment. He said it would have empowered the nine-man commission to fine and imprison persons without due process of law.
