Ada Evening News, The (Newspaper) - August 9, 1962, Ada, Oklahoma The Egg Fry Phooey On Eggs! No Sidewalk Is Frying-Pan Hot By W. L. KNICKMEYER The ancient American touchstone for hot weather purposes is: is it hot enough to fry an egg on the sidewalk? Yesterday, with the official .thermometer bumping its head against the 105 mark for the second successive day, a team of dedicated NEWS researchers put the Not to keen you in suspense about it, the answer is no: Wednesday was not hot enough to fry an egg on the sidewalk. However, the experiment con- ducted by the above-mentioned dedicated researchers brought out a number of other interesting facts: One: Some people are irresist- ably attracted by the sight of a de-shelled egg on the sidewalk surrounded by a team of research- ers. Two: Some people are not. Three: Some people think scien- tific researchers are off their rockers. Four: As many of us have sus- pected, the actual temperature is sometimes considerably different from, the official version. Five: While Wednesday's heat was insufficient to fry an egg, it went a long way toward frying dedicated researchers. The experiment began at p. m. on the sidewalk of the 100 block of North Broadway, when managing editor George Gurley cracked the shell with a skill ob- viously the result of long practice, and dropped the egg onto a smear of butter on the sidewalk. (Nobody thought to record how long it took the butter to -melt. It may be stated'unequivocally, how- ever, that yesterday's sun was hot enough to melt The Women: How Sickening The Eat the Thing Researcher: Is It Frying Get the Salt! Patience, Men It's Bubbling? Phooey. We Quit. The experiment ended at p. m. when managing editor Gur- ley scooped up a now somewhat dispirited egg from the pavement. The egg did not cook. But while it lasted it provided an excellent conversation piece. Indeed, from this viewpoint, the experiment was so successful as to suggest there might be a place in American culture for a Society of Egg Watchers, Hardly had the prairie oyster hit the pavement when a crowd of interested observers gathered. Certain facts Immediately be- came apparent. For example, Egg Watching bears no relation to age. It's true that the great majority of Wednesday's watchers were boys in their early teens; but it must be remembered that the experiment was conducted at a time when the NEWS carrier boys were waiting for their papers. At the other end of .the scale, Ada druggist M. F. Bayless, who (Continued on Two) Army Leaders Struggle For Power In Argentina BUENOS AIRES, Argentina army leaders .en- gaged today in a new struggle for leadership of the nation's ground forces and the commanding voice ir. Jose Maria Guide's military-dominated regime. A rumored intra-army .feud broke into the open Wednesday when, dissident commanders re- belled at the leadership of Gen. Juan Bautista Loza, war minister and army commander in chief. Loza quit both posts Wednesday night, and the dissidents said they satisfied the crisis would not erupt into open conflict. The roots of the crisis-deeply divergent views within the army on the future course of the mained. Defense Minister Jose Luis Can- tilo took over temporary com- mand of the war ministry and summoned top army commanders to a conciliation meeting today. Each of the several army fac- tions was expected to press Can- tilo to name a commander in chief from among its ranks. Sev- eral army generals already were resentful that Cantilo, a civilian, had taken over the war ministry, even temporarily. The navy and air force re- mained on the sidelines, rejecting overtures from the rival army groups. Army troops occupied power plants, radio stations and other key points in the Buenos Aires area to prevent disturbances. The wobbly Argentine peso tum- bled again under the day's un- certainty, and Economy Minister Alvaro Carlos Alsogaray ex- pressed deep concern for the ef- fect the army conflict might have on his drive to get Argentina's stagnant economy moving again. The army crisis stems from the military's ouster of President Ar- turo Frondizi last April and the subsequent forcible recess of Con- gress and annulment of the March ilections in which followers of ex-Dictator Juan D. Peron scored sweeping victories. The move split the army into several factions. One opposed the move altogether as unconstitu- :ional. Another endorsed :the hard line against the Peronists but Dressed for an early return to institutional rule. Still another urged an outright military seizure of power.

(Story on Editorial (AP GOP Accuses Kennedy Of Bowing To Russia WASHINGTON (AP) Republi- cans have closed ranks for a politically significant attack on President Kennedy's modified proposals for a nuclear test ban. In language so similar as to in- dicate a prior meeting of the minds, Senate Republican Leader Everett M. Dirksen of Illinois, House Republican Leader Charles A. 'Halleck .of Indiana and .Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller of New York contended 'Wednesday that Kennedy is retreating toward the Soviet position. Dirksen and Halleck charged in a news conference that Kennedy had sentU.S; negotiators to Gene- Phone Union's Leader Asks War On Teamsters WASHINGTON AFL- CIO leader, whose union is an or- ganizing target of the rival Team- sters Union, said today it is time all AFL-CIO unions combined in an open membership war against the teamsters. Joseph.A. Beirne, president of the AFL-CIO Communications Workers of America, said he plans to propose at the quarterly meet- ing of the AFL-CIO executive council beginning Monday in Chi- cago the formation.by the federa- tion of a Teamsters organizing committee. Beirne said Teamsters Presi- dent.James R, Hoffa.has increas- ingly been directing membership raids against a .number of AFL- CIO unions, including the machin- ists as well, as 'the communica- tions workers. "We can't wait any more for him to chip away Beirne told a reporter. "It's-time we took on Hoffa and made. no bones about it. Up to 'now we've just waited for _ Teamsters -groups to come to us. Not many have come. So we' should go after them.1' in.hand" with concessions to the .Soviets that were promptly rejected. They added that the na- tion now was witnessing "another example by the Kennedy adminis- tration of how not to deal with the Russians." A few hours later Rockefeller said in a statement the Kennedy administration had "moved stead- ily toward the Soviet position" in efforts to get a treaty on nuclear weapons testing and controls. He said that what .he called weakening of the U.S. proposals "made in March 1961 by the Ken- nedy administration even further seems to me to -run a high risk of endangering our national se- curity. Rockefeller, who might become Kennedy's Republican opponent in 1964 if he wins re-election as gov- ernor this year, went on. to say the Democratic President ap- peared to be making decisions without-the public's knowing what proposals were.-.being made. There was no White House com- ment on the Republicans' re- marks. Kennedy told his news confer- ence last week he and; his'aides (Continued on Page WASHINGTON at- tacks'by Sens: Estes'TCefauverrp" Tenn., and Wayne D-Ore., raised the threat today of another Senate filibuster-against the. com- munications satellite bill. They -spoke out as the Senate Foreign.

In a prepared Senate speech that1 appeared to be a day-early curtain raiser for another round of extended last week by referral of the bill to the. assailed nongovernment, ownership of the proposed satellite system and said he and.colleagues would discuss the measure at some length after the committee reports. Morse told newsmen opponents will not settle for anything less than a government-owned satellite system operated 'by communica- tions firms under contract or lease arrangements with the gov- ernment. He said amendments the For- eign Relations Committee might bring out would .amount only to "window dressing." Dr.. Hugh L. Dryden, deputy ad- ministrator "or the National" 'Aero- nautics and Space Administration, told the committee Tuesday that Congress, must act now to assure U.S. leadership in the creation of a global satellite system since it will take two or three years to get it into .'operation. Kefauver said an operational system using either the low-orbit or the. high-orbit satellites on which experiments are under .way "is .still at least a few years away." The President, he said, "should have the authority to determine which system will be put into op- eration in the first instance and the authority to require adoption of a high system at some future date even if a low system is adopt- ed first." The administration is backing a private.corporation to own and op. erate the U.S. part of a .global communications system, with hali of its voting stock owned by the general public and half by the American Telephone Telegraph Co. and other communications carriers. Kefauver and his associates con- tend the language of the bill would permit 'to wind up dominat- ing the corporation. Heller Disputes Claims Of Crisis In Economy WASHINGTON (AP) Walter W. Heller, President Kennedy's chief economic adviser, says pres- ent economic trends are "per- plexing and inconclusive cross- currents" but they do not "sum up to a crisis." .But there is a possibility, he added, that the. recent. slowdown "represents advance warning of an economic decline." And decline, he told a Senate- house Economic Committee on Wednesday, was another.way of saying recession. While pointing, out the possibili- ty of a recession, Heller said the economic indicators are mbied. But there's no doubt, he said, "The U.S. economy ;is still oper- ating considerably short of its po- tential." President Kennedy has said he and his advisers would be weigh- ing these indicators before he de- cides whether to ask. for a quick tax cut to spur the economy or follow through with his plans to ask reductions later which would be effective next Jan. 1. (Continued on Page Two) British Press Roasts Officials Over Soblen Problem LONDON (AP) The British government came under mounting fire from its home press today as the deadlock continued over the fate of-Dr. Robert A. Soblen, the runaway spy. Several newspapers questioned Home Secretary Henry Brooke's insistence that the Israeli El Al Airline fly the psychiatrist back to the United States to serve a life sentence for spying for the Soviet Union. The home office extended the deadline on its order to El Al to fly Soblen, 61, to New York from last midnight until, midnight Fri- day. It also gave the airline the option of designating another line to act as its agent in transporting Soblen. Pan American has said it would be willing to fly Soblen to New "York under such an agreement. But El Al, acting on orders from the Israeli insisted that if Britain hands over .Soblen, it will fly him to Israel. have no intention of ap- proachir.g another airline to take Dr. Soblen to the United a London spokesman for El Al said. A foreign ministry spokesman in Jerusalem :said the 48-hour Exten- sion of. the' deadline had not charged the -Israeli government's position on Soblen. "We are ready to take Soblen back to Israel, if asked by the .British to do so, but we "will not send'-him of our planes to .States 'or anywhere spokesman said. Soblen. jumped bail in New York in- late June- and.fled to Israel on.a dead brother's pass- port. Israel .expelled hhii as an illegal immigrant and put him on an El Al plane for New York with a U.'S. marshal.. The, airline landed him in Britain after ;he slashed a wrist .and plunged- a knife into his abdomen during the flight. Two British courts .ruled that he had no permission .to re- main in Britain and could only stay until he was able to 'travel. The indcpdndent Times of -Lon- don noted that in ordering-'El -Al to take Soblen to the United States .the home secretary was ignoring two other'courses' open to'him un- der the British Jaw dealing with aliens refused permission to land in Britain: The'law says the owners or agents of the .-plane on which the alien arrived may be required to land has no more than-a year to take him either (1) to the coun- try 'of which .he is a national, (2) to th'e country where he. embarked or to. country willing to receive him.' "There is nor priority .among these three so presum- ably, .the-home secretary is'en- titled "to go on saying that it must be number 'one or said the Times. But, it asked, "Is he wise to do The Guardian noted Soblen's contention that :he has leukemia live. "If it were true that he was almost .bound to die within a few this is by no means "established there would be a good case for letting him go wherever he said the Guardian. The Laborite Daily Herald called the home secretary "Brooke the blunderer." "He has angered the Israelis and frustrated the. Americans and he has still got Soblen on bis it. laid. Thalidomide Scare Spurs U.S. Concern Secretary- jof- Welfare An- thony J. Celebrezze has pro- posed new, regulations which would .give the gov- ernment a watchdog role in investigational use of new drugs from start to finish, and power to call off the trials if safety doubts arise. Acting against the background of public and official concern over the sedative thalidomide, Cele- brezze proposed today: 1. That the Food and Drug Ad- ministration -be put on notice and given the full details about the distribution of drugs to doctors for investigational use on humans. 2. That clinical investigations, or use on humans, be based on adequate preclinical studies to as- sure safety. 3. That .the clinical investiga- tions themselves be properly planned, executed by qualified in- vestigators, and that the Food and Drug Administration be kept fully informed during the progress of the investigations. 4. That if a substantial doubt develops as to the safety of the drug, the Food and Drug Adminis- tration and all.physician-investiga- tors using the drug be notified im- mediately. If necessary, the use could be halted by FDA. Current regulations have no such provisions. The secretary said interested persons will have 60 days in. which to comment on the proposed regu- lations and final regulations will not be issued until any comments have been considered. He Promised The proposals followed a prom- ise by Celebrezze last week that tighter regulations would come soon. While the proposals are a direct outgrowth of'the furore over thal- idomide, Celebrezze did not .men- tion that German-developed drug in.his announcement.
