PRICE TEN CENTS FCC Cam Rigged Shows Fraudulent But Not illegal WASHINGTON Of) Fooling the public with rigged television quiz shows is a fraudulent and de ceptive practice but not an illegal one, the Federa Communications Commission told Congress yesterday "Neither the prosecuting attorney in New York nor I have been able to pinpoint any viplation of the FCC Chairman John C. Doerfer said. "We can't determine who has been harmed. -The home owner certainly didn't pay his way into the show." DOERFER SAID the FFC cannot censor programs, in- terfere with freedom of speech "in the field of dramatic ex- pression" or dig up the man- power to monitor all pro- grams. It would Toe a different mat- said, if networks or stations were doing'the faking instead of producers of indi- vidual shows. Doerfer made it clear he thought fixed quiz shows were thoroughly responsible. But, he added, "sometimes we have to endure some evil for the over-all "public good. We can't have everything perfect." DOERFER testified befor> the House .legislative Over- sight sub-committee that is investigating TV quiz show operations. Several witnesses have testified since Tuesday that contestants were given answers in, advance. Further testimony willbe heard Mon- day. Youngblut Is Killed In Crash (Two men are killed in car crashes in Waterloo. Story on page 13.) Death claimed the third auto accident victim in 24 hours last night when Gordon Paul Youngblut, 22, of 121 Irving St., was killed when his car plunged off the road on Hwy. 218 South and into a farm field drive em- bankment. He was dead of crushing in- juries on arrival at Sehoitz Memorial hospital where he was taken aftej being ejctri- cated from the wrecked machine. The Crash occurred at p. m. YOUNGBLUT was, driving north, apparently at high speed. At a point about one- quarter of a mile south of Cedarside Dairy, his machine veered to the west side of the road and into the ditch where it smashed into the bank. The front of the 1957 model car was badly wrecked by the impact and much of the glass was splintered. Two motorists said Youngblut had passed them a few miles from the scene of the fatal crash. THE STATE Highway Pa- trol was investigating the ac- cident. Youngblut was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Harold J. Young- blut, of 121 Irving. The victim was formerly employed at in- dustrial plants in the city. Lunik Starts Return Trip LONDON W) Russia'? moon probing Lunik III, wheeled around and start- ed heading back toward the earth yesterday. V.- Moscow radio said that at its farthest point from the earth its speed dropped to 868 m.p.h. to the speed of a modern jet aircraft. But its rate of travel through space is increasing on the re- turn trip; SOVIET astronautical ex- pert Ari Sternfeld. the-broad- cast said, believes that by to- day the space vehicle will pick up its full cosmic speed again under the influence of the earth's gravitation. Sternfield said the moon stopped influencing the space station's orbit as soon as the vehicle left the moon's vicinity'. THE RADIO quoted Stern- feld as saying that, discount- ing accidents such as collisions with meteorites, the life ex- pectation of Lunik III is un- limited. The Soviets have said Lunik will cover its orbit in 15 days. The radio reported the in- struments in the space.vehicle were still working perfectly. CRASH KILLS FOUR. LUCAS Death claimed four Minneapolis people Fri- day in a one-car accident a mile south of here on High- way BACK IN BURMA. RANGOON, Burma Prime Minister Ne Win ar- rived home yesterday by spe- cial plane from visits to the United Arab Republic, Pakis- tan and India. Asked why the commission didn't come to Congress for more authority if 'it feels it lacks power to act, Doerfer replied: "I would never rec- ommend to Congress that it adopt a law that would sup- press something by unconsti- tutional means." THERE STILL was no word on whether Charles Van Dor- en would accept an invitation to testify or if he would be subpoenaed to testify. Van Doren, who became a national figure while winning on the defunct "Twen ty-One" quiz show, consist- ently has denied any know- ledge of the show's being fixed. Other 'Twenty-One" con- testants have testified that the show was fixed. But they die not accuse Van Doren of tak- ing part in the fakery.

The striking steelworker union was reported plannin a strong fight at the hearing against a court provic ed for in emergency provi sions of the Taft-Hartley ac to send the men back to wor after 88 days on the picke lines. EISENHOWER'S action i setting the Taft-Hartley ma chinery in motion late Friday drew a barrage of critical firi from many of the Unitet Steelworkers of America, from other unions and from' some Democrats in Congress.

The report quoted the postal inspection service as saying possibly a million children this year will receive mail solicita- tions for lewd and obscene material. is Dr. George W. Taylor, seasoned labor mediator. TAYLOR, a former federa official and now a University of Pennsylvania profes sor, said before leaving Phila delphia for Washington yes terday that he had hoped to withdraw from the labor re lations field 'entirely and spend all his time teaching added: "But this is a critical time When the President asks you to do something, you can' very well say no." Taylor said he planned to meet" with his colleagues on the fact-finding panel today :d determine hearing pro- cedures. He said the hearings ihemselyes may get under way tomorrow afternoon. TAYLOR IS on record as ;aying that neither injuric- ions nor government seizure of plants is likely to contrib- ute tora meeting of minds in collective bargaining. A similar stand has been aken by David J. McDonald, iresident of the Steelworkers Jnion. McDonald is expected ic're from Pittsburgh Sunday o help argue the union case gainst a strike-ending in- unction. He has said injunctions can- lot solve the basic bargaining problems involved, but tha the union would 'obey the law and go back to work if or dered by a federal court to do so. WALTER P. REUTHER'S United Automobile Workers Union, holding a convention in Atlantic City, N. J., unani mously voted to ask Eisen hower to reconsider his action in invoking the Taft-Hartley Act. There was no sign that Ei- senhower would do so. He has said he is sick and tired o: the situation and could hot let it drag on to the point where the American people woulc suffer serious hardship. Similarly, there appeared little prospect that either the fact-finding board or federal court would reject the dea of an injunction to halt the strike for 80 days. Eisenhower gave Taylor's 'act-finding board until nexl "ttday to file its report. NOT UNTIL IT reports will lisenhower be free under the aw to instruc't the Justice De- partment to seek an injunc- ion. Thus the steel shutdown will a surprise greement between union and at least next weekend. And if no agreement should be reached within the 80-day cooling, off period, the steel- workers would be free to walk out again early in Janu- ary. IN THE MEANTIME, of course, seriously depleted sup- plies of steel could be replen- ished. To what extent was a question. Industry sources in Pittsburgh estimated it might require five weeks to get the mills back to 90 per cent of capacity. When the strike started, there was a big supply on hand. Critics of Eisenhower's ac- tion contended that an injunc- tion would have the effect of removing the pinch from the industry. STRIKERS IN steel centers voiced blunt complaints. "Ike is favoring the corpor- one said; Other com- ments: "It won't settle the strike. They have the same cind of forced labor in Russia. They want to take the guts out of our contract." An 80-day injunction taking effect next Saturday would ixpire Jan. 4. Before that time comes, the aw calls for the workers to rote by secret ballot on the ompanies' last offer, as re- iorted by the fact-finding card. UAW Eyes Dues Hike to Boost Fund; Rips T-H Use ATLANTIC CITY, N. J. fh> United'Auto Workers Union convention ppealed to President Eisen- ower yesterday to reconsider is decision to invoke the 'aft-Hartley act in the steel ;rike. The nearly delegates nanimously approved a tele- ram from UAW chief Walter Reuther to Eisenhower sking that instead the Presi- ent create "an impartial "pub- c fact-finding board." the Steelworkers back'-to their jobs; the telegram said, "con- stitutes little more than using the power and majesty of the United States government as a strike-breaking weapon." The UAW gave the steel- workers one million dollars last month and offered to contribute more help in sup- porting the strike. MEANWHILE, the UAW set a goal of building its strike fund, which is now .below 15 million dollars, to 46 million AN INJUNCTION by the end of 1961 arid to 40 Army Trainees Face a Fanatical Foe Aggressor Even Uses Clenched Fist Salute FORT RILEY, Kan. ffl An implacable enemy faces nearly every man in Army training today. He is tough, resourceful and tricky. He fights like a fanatic. His chief weapon is deceit. HIS NAME is Aggressor and his aim: To rule the world. Few people outside the army have heard of Aggressor. Yet he has "captured" great areas of the United in California, Florida, Texas, the Carolinas. Aggressor was created in 1946 by the fertile brains of top U. S. Army officers. He is the enemy U. S. soldiers meet in maneuvers. He was born after the Army learned that untested soldiers can be killed in the first time they face battle. It was a bitter lesson learned in World War II. THOSE FIRST battle casualties-are what caused the Army to set up the Aggressor program, an elaborate train- ing system complete with a mythical government, clenched fist salute and forest green uniform. Army trainees are drilled in the history of Aggressor They are told the enemy government is ruled by the so- called Circle Trigon party, whose symbol is a green tri- angle on a white field. Before he ,is designated to play the Aggressor, the soldier is an ordinary GI. But when he puts on that forest green uniform and extends that clenched fist salute, he becomes the prototype of all totalitarian soldiers. In uni- form, he believes in The Cause. HE IS RESOURCEFUL, clever and thoroughly indoc- trinated in the basic Aggressor objective of world domina- tion. "We find that just putting on the Aggressor uniform gives the men an incentive to play hell with the other said Col. Rollins S. Emmerich, commander of the U. S Army Aggressor Center at Ft. Riley, which guides the program. BUT AGGRESSOR is more than a game. The Army has published three 250-page handbooks to give him iden- tity.

Reuther's supporters, mak- ing up a substantial majority of the delegates, voted in a' caucus to ask the convention to increase basic dues a month. The convention is expected to vote on the pro- posal tomorrow and Reuther has predicted it will be ap- proved overwhelmingly. The increase would make basic dues a month for the union's members. The strike fund would get a month from each mem- ber. UAW members are now pay- ing a special assessment of a month into the strike fund.
