Carroll Daily Times Herald (Newspaper) - July 22, 1958, Carroll, Iowa Vol 89-No. 171 Return Postage Guaranteed Carroll, Iowa/Tuesday, July 22, 1958-Eight Pages Delivered by Carrier Boy In Carroll "J Q Single Each Evening Cor 35 Cent* Per Weelc Copy Polio Group Expanding Its Program National Foundation Going Into 5 New Areas NEW YORK (AP)-The National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis announced today it is expanding its program to attack major health problems of the nation. Until now, the foundation has been concerned with polio. Paralytic potio has been virtually licked by the, Salk vaccine. Basil O'Connor, foundation president, said research initially will be in five areas: polio, virus research, disorders of the nervous system, arthritis and birth defects. May Vie for Funds The foundation's expansion into arthritis research indicates it may vie for funds with the Arthritis and Rheumatism Foundation. The latter last week rejected a proposed merger'by the two groups. O'Connor said no attempt will be made to duplicate the work of other voluntary agencies. He added, however, that as scientific breakthroughs occur they will be pursued wherever they lead, with the general objective of improvement of man's health. The arthritis group voiced regret that the polio foundation had not "seen fit to join forces" in combating arthritis, but instead was entering the field on its own. Name Change The polio organization will be known henceforth as the National Foundation, O'Connor said. He said the enlarged program is a natural outgrowth of work done in the course of finding a polio preventive and caring for polio victims. When the breakdown of merger negotiations was announced last Wednesday, the arthritis foundation said basic differences in the organization and methods of operation of the two foundations apparently could not be reconciled.

"No one can make predictions Russia Ready To Outbid U.S. For Technicians LONDON (AP)-Nikita Khrushchev says the Soviet Union is determined to build up its chemical industry quickly and will outbid America to pay high wages to non-Communist technicians from the West. The Soviet Premier made the statement in a speech at the recent Communist Congress in East Berlin. The text of the speech-made July 9-was broadcast by Moscow radio today. Khrushchev said the Soviet Union stands ready to pay foreign technicians, even if they oppose communism, "more than the richest concerns and firms pay." "Many of these people are not attracted by political ideas," he said. "They are more interested in what the Americans call business. "Therefore let us pay them well, let us pay them more than do the Americans or Bonn (West Germany \ and when they work with us they will see that we are not their enemies.

Participating in the determined effort to find the boy were Albia Fire Department's rescue crew, Albia police, and Monroe County officials. Tuesday morning, the Knoxville Fire Department sent its rescue crew to help. Nathan Allan was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Alyin Clemens, who lived with their eight children in a cottage on the rendering concern's grounds. Clemens is employed there. The grounds are located about a mile southeast of Albia .on hilly ground with a heavy overgrowth of high weeds and brush. Two of the 17 or more feet deep septic tanks were pumped dry at the beginning of the search. The third, surrounded by a wall, was considered improbable of access by the child. Buildings on the property were searched, and cars of company employes into which the boy might have gone were checked. Police Chief Glenn Derby, about midnight Monday, put his three bloodhounds into action. The dogs repeatedly led searchers to the banks of one of the ponds, where dragging operations started. The last word of the lad was when his mother saw him Monday afternoon, playing on the roof of a small shed near his home. Police estimated more than 1.000 onlookers were at the scene until early Tuesday, with some of them aiding in the search. The Clemens family' moved to Albia from Ottumwa last April. The boy was injured about a year ago when struck by a railroad locomotive in Ottumwa, and the injury left him with a walking handicap. Cut Askings (or Military Installations House Unit Criticises A.F. Academy Procedures By WILLIAM F. ARBOGAST WASHINGTON (AP) - The House Appropriations Committee today cut more than half a billion dollars from Defense Department construction fund requests. It cited the new Air Force' Academy as an outstanding example of "loose fiscal procedures." It slashed $511,838,000 from the $1,730,653,000 requested by the administration for construction program at military bases in the United States and abroad. A. F. Cut Largest The Air Force was jgiven the biggest cut, 300 million dollars from the $1,001,500,000 it requested. The Navy's bid for $368,253,000 was trimmed by $85,502,000, while the Army's request for $340,900,-000 was pared by $126,336,000. . Project after project, including such' items as officers' swimming pools and elaborate housing accommodations, was cut out completely or sharply slashed as undesirable or "certainly not essential." The cotnmittee was especially critical of policies and practices relating to construction of the Air Force Academy at Colorado Springs, Colo. Many buildings at the academy, the committee said, were increased in scope and cost without congressional approval until after binding contracts had been approved. 'Unrealistic Planning' "A typical example of the lack of realistic planning" in connection with the academy, the committee said, was Air Force approval of floor-to-ceiling blacked "boards on all four walls of classrooms. In an effort to curb future spending at the academy, the committee urged the House to clamp a ceiling of $139,797,000 on the total cost of the academy. It cut a million dollars from the $4,372,000 requested for the present years.

Burton Holmes Dies; Originated Film Travelogue HOLLYWOOD (AP) - Burton Holmes, the man who originated the movie travelogue, died today. Holmes, whose organization Invented the word travelogue, spent more than half of his 88 years in travel and once was referred to by Lowell Thomas as "the most sophisticated traveler of them all."

He wrote a script and read it as the pictures were being shown "to take the edge off the silence." The club decided to hire a hall and present Holmes in his first travel lecture. In 1897 Holmes was first to use motion pictures to illustrate travel talks. TO SYNOD MEETING The Rev.

The action came after Audubon County Engineer C. H. Vernon outlined urgent need for $80,000 in state aid to match with an equal amount in federal funds for bridge restoration on farm - to -market roads. The $80,000 for Audubon County is included in the $409,440 figure, and another $409,440 for secondary roads in the flood zone will come from the federal government.

The people don't care what kind of a solution develops so long as they get this over with." Camille Birbari, 36-year-old purchasing agent for a Lebanese firm, was talking. His office is in the center of Beirut-one of the hottest spots in the 73-day-old re bellion against Lebanon's pro-Western government. Frequently, Birbari has telephoned his pretty wife Aida, mother of one child and with another on the way, that he had to work late. Under Rebel Fire Actually his office building was under heavy rebel fire. One employe was killed and another wounded. Birbari moved his desk away from the window and felt reasonably safe. But he couldn't tell his wife the real reason for his working late - "She was already nervous and I wouldn't give her any more bad news." Aida's time drew near. Because of rebel sandbag barriers ir sections of the city and the government's 8 p.m. curfew, the husband became apprehensive about the trip to the hospital. "We had curfew passes, of course, not knowing when Aida might have to go to the hospital. Then they canceled the old passes and told everybody in the city they would have to get new ones. There was nothing we could do but hope for the best. My wife was nervous but very brave." Baby Arrives Ten days ago Biroari took his wife to the hospital - at 7 p.m., an hour before the streets were cleared and before the nightly shootings and bombings began. The baby arrived that night. Birbari said the arrival of the U.S. Marines caused celebrations' among the government supporters and badly scared the opposition. But the great majority of the people now just want peace, he declared, adding: "We are sick and tired of it. We're against anything that disturbs the stability of the country." withdrawal of U.S. forces from Lebanon. Threatens Veto He suggested strongly he would use the veto to kill the Japanese resolution if his amendments were turned down. The Council already has rejected a Soviet resolution calling on American troops to get out of Lebanon. The Soviet amendments were sure to be rejected. The Japanese resolution provides for beefing up the present U.N. observer group in Lebanon so it would guarantee the political independence of the strife - torn Middle East country and permit the withdrawal of U.S. forces. Some delegates said they would have to get new instructions from their governments, and doubted they could do so in time to vote today.

HIGHTOWER WASHINGTON (AP) - President Eisenhower yielded to British insistence today and agreed to go along with a summit meeting of the United Nations Security Council if that is generally desired by the Western Powers and Russia. A White House announcement to this effect shortly after noon today apparently ended a dispute with Britain over whether the Western Big Three should move openly and directly toward a U.N. summit session or merely indicate indirectly in notes to Moscow that such a meeting might be possible. About an hour earlier, British, Foreign Minister Selwyn Lloyd had told the House of Commons in London that Prime Minister Harold Macmillan would attend if a special meeting of the Security Council were arranged. To Discuss Crisis The purpose of the meeting, Lloyd said, would be to discuss the Middle East crisis but it would not act on any resolution unless there was general agreement that such action should be taken. Press secretary James C. Hag-erty said at the White House: "A United Nations Security Council meeting of the character suggested by Foreign Minister Lloyd is clearly with the contemplation of the (U.N.) Charter. "If such a meeting were generally desired, the United States would join in following this orderly procedure."

(AP) - The Army said today it has released Pvt. Ernest Shult, the .mathematical whiz once assigned to clerk-typist duties in the service. A spokesman in the information office at Aberdeen Proving Ground, said Shult was given a special discharge Monday. He left a forwarding address of Southern Illinois University, where he did research before he was inducted. It was the insistence of a faculty member at Southern Illinois which resulted in Shult getting a transfer from clerical duties at Ft. Lee. Va., to the Army chemical center at Edgewoodi, Md, where he worked in the mathematics branch of the weapons research division. Dr. Carl C. Lindegren, director of biological research at the university, last October accused the Army of wasting the genius of his former student. , Immediately Army scientists bid for his services and the 25-year-old private was sent to Edge-wood.'
