CITY FINAL 5 CENTS VOLUME 303 CEDAR RAPIDS, IOWA, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 8, 1963 ASSOCIATED PRESS, UNITED PRESS INTERNATIONAL UPRISING FORT MADISON Strikes at Backers of Krebiozen .Govt. Opening Action Aimed at Possible Prosecutions CHICAGO gov- ernment Friday directed Doctors A. C. Ivy and Stevan -Durovic to show cause why they should not be prosecut- ;ed under federal laws for Claiming Krebiozen is an ef- fective drug against cancer. The Food and Drug Admin- istration served similar no- tices on Marko Durovic, brother of Stevan; Dr. Wil- liam F. P. Phillips of Chi- cago, and the Krebiozen Re- search Foundation. An FDA sookesman said registered letters giving no- tice of the action were put in the mails Friday and an informal closed hearing will be held in Chicago starting Nov. 18. He said the hearing offi- cer can recommend that the matter be referred to the justice denartment for pro- secution if it appears'.there has been a violation of law. Possible Penalty The action is being taken under the food, drug and cosmetic act. Maximum pen- alty for conviction is a fine and a year 'in ..jail. Ivy said he had not re- ceived notice (if the hearing, but added: "We welcome a hearing in an ooen court. The whole campaign against been Krebiozen has been cne of misrepresentation made pos- sible bv deliberate conceal- ment of facts by those in au- .thority. "It is high time that the real facts be developed by correct indicia! nrocedures. This will show without reason for doubt the effectiveness of Krebiozen in treatment of some hopeless cancer pa- tients." The action follows govern- ment crackdowns against Krebiozen. Analysis Showing The FDA renorted Sept. 7 that an analysis of the drug showed it was nothing more than creatine, an easily-ob- tained chemical normally present in the body in large quantities. The National Cancer Insti- tute on Oct. 15 reported 24 'specialists had evaluated the 504 "best" cancer cases treated by Ivy and found Krebiozen of no benefit. Krebiozen is banned by federal drug laws from inter- state shinment but can still be distributed in Illinois. .However, Atty. Gen. William Clark of Illinois and a com- mission of physicians is studying what action, if any, to take.

Look Out Below, Tito Rusk Tells Rosy View Of Vietnam 'Hope for Freedom and Security Brought By New Govt.' WASHINGTON (AP) Secretary of State Rusk said Friday that the new govern- ment of South Vietnam brings hope that the troubled nation can be "free and se- cure." He told a news conference, on the day following recog- nition of the new government jy the U. S. and Britain, that :his country has no special interest of its own in Viet- nam and never has had a selfish concern there. The American interest from the outset, he said, has seen to insure survival of :he nation against the threat of communist takeover. For the first time in his- :ory, a secretary of state's meeting with reporters was opened to live broadcast. It was carried live by Mutual Broadcasting and The television Scalise Fields Questions from County Attorneys By Bill Duffy The man charged with en- forcing 'Iowa's liquor control act fielded a barrage, of questions; from the state's county attorneys here Thurs- day, admitting that he may lave booted a few.

Then he spent 80 minutes trying to handle their questions about the complex liquor legislation. Scalise is titled chief en- 'orcement officer of the liq- uor control commission.

"We like the system and we are concerned about pub- lic sentiment on he said. "We've still got tremen- dous problems in our of- fice, and a lot of questions yet to be answered." Scalise's questioners seemed most interested in the state's policy concerning cooperation with county and: local officials during investi- gations of liquor license: lolders. Why don't state agents con- tact local police and county attorneys before raiding, he was asked. Time Element "Generally, we Scal- ise answered.

The government said he lad left Havana for a tour of several provinces. President Osvaldo Dorticos and Cas- tro's brother, Paul, armed 'orces minister, were also reported out of town. Foreign Minister Raul Roa and Minister of Industry 'Che" Guevara were among he guests at the recep- lon. Senate Votes Ban on Aid To Yugoslavia and U.A.R. White House1 and on its" leaders, the senate voted late Thursday to ban aid to Yugo- slavia and the United Arab Republic. Administration wishes for a free hand were overridden as the senate nailed these prohibitions into the foreign aid authorization bill and ap proved another amendmeni :o keep the lid on assistance to Indonesia. For good measure, it ap proved still another ban on to nations whose 'ishing policies "violate free dom of the seas." Administration forces were clearly reeling as the senate closed up shop after its firs night session since taking up 'oreign aid a week ago Mon day. 47 Amendments The slow, rocky road to passage of the measure is strewn with 47 ad- ditional amendments, aimec ither at paring the authori- zation or restricting how the "unds are used. A voice vote passed the amendment to deny Presi- dent Kennedy any discretion o provide military or eco- nomic assistance to Presi- dent Tito's Yugoslavia. Administration forces plan to fight later to restore his discretion to provide most- favored-nation trade treat- ment for Yugoslavia and Po- land, barred last year by congress. Senator Proxmire (D-Wis.) put through the amendment :o cut off all aid to com- munist Yugoslavia, except What Is Shaft Plan? What is the Shaff plan of legislative reapportion- ment? lowans will vote Dec. 3 on ratification of the proposed constitutional amendment changing the distribution of seats in the state legislature. Yet few citizens really know what the plan provides. To give lowans this information, the Associated Press has prepared a series of four articles. The first may be found on page 8 of today's Gazette. It is suggested readers clip the articles for future reference. for some surplus foot and for assistance to American schools, hospitals and li- braries. Senator Lausche (D-Ohip) said he would offer an amendment to wipe out com- pletely the President's dis- cretion to aid any commu- nist country under any cir- cumstances. Present Law Under present law, aid cannot be given Yugoslavia, Poland and other communist countries unless the Pre dent determines the assist- ance is vital to U.S. security, the recipient is not con- trolled by the Kremlin, and the aid will promote the country's independence. Thursday night's big fight came on an amendment by Sen. Gruening (D-Alaska) to bar help to any nation which the President determines is engaging in or preparing for aggressive action against the U.S. or any country re- ceiving U.S. assistance. Identical to a provision in the house-passed bill, it was approved 65-13. Gruening and other spon- sors made clear that the amendment was aimed at President Nasser's U.A.R., which has sent troops into Yemen.

ABC net- Say Prisoners Mill in Yard; Call in Patrol FORT MADISON (UPI) A "disturbance" broke out among inmates at the Iowa penitentiary Friday just eight days after an uprising at the men's reformatory at Anamosa. Gov. Harold Hughes, in Des Moines, confirmed that an inmate "protest" was un- derway. 300 Mill Around He said he had been in- formed that about 300 prison- ers had congregated in the exercise yards and were 'milling around." Hughes said officials had been unable to determine the cause of the "protest" and at more this point there was "no damage that we are aware of." A spokesman for the gov- ernor said "we are in con- tact with the prison and the board of control in maintaining contact." The spokesman said it had been agreed by Hughes and members of the board to be "cautious" about the re- lease of information con- cerning the incident. Except for the brief state- ment from the governor's of- works taped it for later view- .ng. Previous Rule The .rule in the past has )een that reporters could not quote the secretary directly until he had a chance to re- view a transcript of his .re- marks and, edit them if deemed advisable for policy 2asons. Rusk was asked about what a reporter called the French joint of view on possible neutralization of South Viet- nam. The secretary said he felt the French were talking on a long-range basis, looking far into the future. The U. S. sees nothing in their pro- josals that would involve ac- :ion in South Vietnam at jresent, he said. Rusk said the chief prob- lem that developed with the Diem regime was an aliena- :ion of the people. He said felt the new regime would je able to resolve the differ- :nces so the country could move against the commu- nists with unity. Foreign Aid Asked how he would spond to what the question- er said is the indication that congress is getting fed up with foreign aid, Rusk said ie doesn't understand the tendency to cut back on aid fContinued: Page 2.

USN Campaign Tops 85% of Its Goal Cedar Rapids With three of the nine di- visions climbing above the mark, the United Good Neighbors campaign Friday stood at a gain of more than since the previous report Monday and night. The over-all total now rep- resents 85% of the goal. General Chairman James Colbert cited particularly the geographic division, terming its achievement "one of the best jobs that has ever been done in that division." The division, headed by Mrs. Norman Lipsky and Mrs. Holbrook Morrison, has hit 96.2% of its goal thus far with pledges of to- ward a goal of Aim for Finish "We are now aiming to- ward finishing the campaign by 5 p.m. next Colbert said. "It seems rea- sonable to assume at this point that everything can be completed by then." Volunteer accountants, who audited pledges Thursday night, will conduct the final (Continued: Page 3, Col. 7.) 8 Days in Hole in Ground MASSAPEQUA PARK, N.Y. (AP) James Leav- ens was 15 Friday, but the celebration at his home was somewhat subdued. Jimmy is being disciplined. He's just back from a nine-day runaway adven- ture, eight of them spent in a hole in the ground in a woods four blocks from his house. During this time, police, his frantic family, and friends searched in vain. His father, a bus driver, was sent home from work one day during his son's mysterious absence after a near-accident, his wife said. "After all, you can't drive a bus with tears in your she explained. Jimmy returned Thurs- day. His mother said he probably realized that it was his sister's birthday and Friday was his own birthday. He suffered a few mosquito bites and was a little under his usual 95 pounds, but otherwise was all right. Any visions of a big cele- bration were dispelled by his mother. She said she was planning only a small observance for both birth- days because of the com- motion. During his hooky-playing from ninth grade, Jimmy hid out in "Toad's valley" in the best Huckleberry Finn tradition. Other boys contributed clothing, a sleeping bag, a kerosene lantern, a port- able radio, and a few pen- nies to augment the he had with him. He spent the first night in the Massapequa rail- road station, undetected, but the other boys told him about a safer hole in the woods. He placed boards, cardboards and discarded carpets over part of the hole, which he said was "as big as the dining room." A fellow conspirator gave him a color comb that he used to lighten his dark-brown hair so he would not be recognized when he went occasionally to a shopping center for snacks. Mrs. Leavens said Jimmy ran away Oct. 28 after he ducked outside school be- tween classes to smoke a cigaret and spotted a police car. Escorted by his father, he returned 16 school Thursday, but was told to go home and rest until Monday. Report on Anamosa Prison Riot Details Given Hughes; Board To Continue Investigation By Donald Finley DES M01NES (UPI) In- mates of the Iowa men's re- ormatory at Anamosa ap- peared the clear winners Fri- lay in a near-riot at the in-- titution last week that left than a quarter million dollars damage. A report by the state board of control late Thursday said many of the grievances which were the underlying cause of the disturbance have been corrected and the board has promised to review others. The three-member board presented the report to Gov. rlaroid Hughes. Hughes said Friday the board is coniinu- ng its investigation. Prime Complaints The disturbance was caused jy a number of dissatisfac- :ions among inmates and not >y opposition to a proposed work schedule change as pre- viously stated by the board, he report said. The prime complaints, were about..food arid commissary service and and. .'The report also disclosed that dissatisfaction over conflicting orders about the work schedule .change ap- parently was the reason Anamosa Warden Ray Purcell intended .to hand in his resignation the day of the disturbance. The board, which adminis- :ers the 14 state correctional mental institutions, indi- cated the proposed change in ivork schedules to be put in- :o effect first in the prison :ailor shop may have been :he trigger that touched off i sitdown and hunger strike Oct. 31 which led to a fire in :he tailor shop and damage :o equipment in other build- ngs, but was not the basic cause. On the day of the dis- turbance, the board issued a statement saying the cause of the trouble apparently was inmate dissatisfaction with a proposal to consoli- date work and classroom, lours for prisoners rather than intermingling them as at present. At that time, the joard said such a schedule change was only in the 'talking stage" and no de- cision had been reached to implement it. Change Ordered However, the latest state- ment presented to Hughes contained a quote by Purcell saying the work change was :o have gone into effect at the tailor shop Nov. 18. Pur- cell said he had heard through the prison "grape- vine" that a hunger strike would be staged if the work change went into effect on that date. "We assumed the hunger strike was scheduled to take (Continued: Page II, Col. 1) Today's Index Comics 24 Courthouse 3 Crossword 24 Daily Record....... 3 Deaths 3 Editorial Features 6 Farm 21 Marion 25 Society Sports ..............17-20 State Television.......... 12 Want Ads ...........26-29
