LI No. 88 56 A, B, C, D APPLETON-NEENAH-MENASHA, WIS., WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER ASSOCIATED PRESS WERE SERVICE Price Seven Cents Woman, 54, Killed When Struck by Car Mrs. Elmer Broehm Was Walking Along County Trunk A Neenah Mrs. Elmer Broehm, 55, of 147 Fourth street, Neenah was injured fatally when struck by a car driven by Walter A. Strey, 60, route 1, Neenah, while she was walking on County Trunk A, two miles south of here at p.m. Tuesday. She was taken in the Nee- nah ambulance to T h e d a Clark hospital where she was pronounced dead on arrival. Her death was the 12th for Winnebago county this year. A year ago, there were 11 traffic deaths at this time. She was identified at the hospital by her husband and son, Marvin, 1920 Henry street, at p.m., after questioning of residents near the scene of the accident fail- ed to determine her identity She carried no identification. Seemed Depressed Strey told Winnebago coun- ty police he was driving north on County Trunk A when a car approached him with bright lights. About the time the two cars met and passed, he heard something hit the front of his car and slide to- ward the windshield. He stopped the car and saw Mrs. Broehm slide from the hood onto the ground. The left front fender and hood of his car were damaged. The son told sheriff's depu- ties his mother been de- Turn to Page 14, Col. 8 Skin Diver Claims Shark Attacked Him Richmond, Calif. A skin diver says a white shark tossed him about "like a dog shakes a bone" but failed to wound him in Bodega bay, 40 miles north of San Francisco's Golden Gate. Jim Hay, 30. who said yes- terday he was the target of the underwater assault Sun- day, added that the only damage was a gash in his rubber swim fin, which the shark grabbed in its tooth- studded mouth. Hay recalled he was hunt- ing ;alone with Tony See- boc, 16, of nearby El So- brante and was about 20 feet below the surface when the shark struck "with a shocking jar." Hay swam for the surface but was dragged under again by "a violent jerk." The diver con- tinued. Picked Up by Boat All he said he could see as his mask filled with wa- ter was the fish's gills, as he was slammed backward against its side. The shark finally let go, Hay continued, and the div- er and Seeboc climbed onto nearby Bird Rock, where they were picked up by a passing fishing boat. Seeboc said he saw the shark drag Hay under. He described it as dull white with a dorsal fin about two feet high. Several great white sharks were caught and killed in Bodega bay and nearby areas after one of them kill- ed Albert Kogler off a San Francisco beach last spring. Hay did not say why he delayed reporting the at- tack. Richmond is a San Fran- cisco bay city. to Railroad Got City Nothing Abstract Shows Appleton Lacks Right to Improve Bellaire Ravine Appleton paid the Chicago and North Western Railway company in 1946 for a right-of-way strip through Bel- laire park ravine, but the money bought nothing. This was the long-awaited report handed the board of public works Tuesday by Director of Public Works Duszyns- ki. What the railroad sold the city was a quit claim deed which gave the city whatever the railroad's interest in the land was at that time. An abstract obtained by City Atty. Jury shows, re- ported Duszynski, that the railroad obtained the land originally by promising it would revert to abutting prop- erty owners when the rail- road abandoned the trackage. Map Details Owners A map which Duszynski produced puts most of the Fox river frontage along the park and all of the deeply wooded ravine between Fox River Tractor company and a point midway b'etween the company and Pacific street bridge, in private property owners' hands. The rest re- verted to the city because of its ownership of Bellaire park. This not only means the park board presently has no right to improve parts of the ravine, but the city has no easements for two sanitary sewers and one storm sewer trunk which follows the creek Turn to Page 14, Col. 5 Sylvia Porter Compares 1959, sight gives you bread-and- butter facts about financial happenings of the day.

Fact-Finding Board Urges New Talks in Dock Strike No Prospects Of Accord in Steel Dispute Union's Pay-Policy Committee Sent Home by McDonald Pittsburgh Unite Steelworkers President Davic J. McDonald sent his wage policy committee home to- day. He said steel strike set tlement prospects appeared hopeless. McDonald indicated he felt the next step will be for Pres ident Eisenhower to invoke the Taft-Hartley law to end the strike for an 80-day pe- riod. But McDonald said the union will fight any such court injunction in the courts. He pledged the union, fail- ing to upset an injunction would "obey the law of the land." The union chief said there was nothing in the steel ne- gotiations picture to "indicate hope for settlement in the near future." No Sign of Agreement In strongly opposing use ol the T-H law McDonald again called for appointment by Eis enhower of a public fact-find ing board to sift the strike is- sues and recommend a set tlement solution. Eisenhower has expressed distate for such a board, but has said he would name one if the industry joined the un- ion in endorsing the idea. The industry has indicated any White House intervention should be the Taft-Hartley procedure. Under Taft-Hartley a board of inquiry would be confined to making a factual report on the situation. Premier of Iraq Reported Shot Cairo Premier Ab- del Karim Kassem, Iraq's strongman premier, was shot in the shoulder today, Baghdad radio reported. The radio said the pre- mier was slightly wounded. Iraq's military governor, Gen. Ahmed Saleh el Abdl, immediately clamped a cur- few on Baghdad and its sub- urbs. Testifies Show Rigged Network Deceived, t Witness Indicates Washington A public relations consultant for produc- ers of the TV quiz program "Twenty-One" testified today the show was rigged. At the same time, the witness, Alfred Davis, said an attor- ney advised his public-relations firm not to tell the truth to New York authorities investigating charges that contestants were given questions and answers in advance. Davis identified the attorney as Edwin Slote of New York. In effect, Davis said his firm and Barry and Enright, Inc., owners of the quiz pro- gram, had deceived the Na- tional Broadcasting company by not telling them tne truth. NBC was the network that carried one of the biggest quiz shows until it AP Wlrephoto Vasily V. Kuznetsov, Right, and Arkady A.

Expansion of Outagamie Port Offered State's Ideas Include Rerouting of French Road, Present Highway 41 A plan to spend on the Outagamie county airport and to relocate present Highway 41 and French road was handed to the county Monday. The state aeronautics commission's master plan also rules out carrying the proposed north-south cross run- way over present Highway 41, since the commission considers a tunnel some feet long would be too expensive. The county board's air- port committee authorized the commission to apply for federal aid for the plan with work to start in 1961. The commission is authorized to submit plans for a cross run- way, taxiways, a foot extension for the present run- ivay and acquire all land re- quired. Not Committed (Despite the committee ac- ion, the county is not com- mitted to the plan. The county can, through the state, make an application for federal aid and not be absolutely commit- :ed to the plans submitted. The final approval of the plans comes when the state asks the county for money, usually about six months to Turn to Page 14, Col. 1 j Graham Opens Indiana Crusade Indianapolis A non- capacity but warm audience welcomed evangelist Billy Graham to Indiana last night and he said he was satisfied with the reception. About of the seats were empty in the In- diana State Fairgrounds col- iseum but Graham said the turnout compared "favorably with that m London five years ago the only other time he started his crusade in mid- week.

Millions of dollars could be involved. The Indians about of the Tlingit and Haida groups had sued for com- pensation for fishing and hunting rights and for the value of the land their an- cestors lost. Expects to Report to President Tomorrow on Swift Investigation Washington President Eisenhower's emergency fact-finding board completed a public hearing today on the strike of east and gulf coast stevedores with an appeal to the parties to resume bargaining at once and hammer out a solu- tion. Chairman Guy Farmer told newsmen he expects that "bar- ring something we cannot foresee, we will file a report tomor- row." If Eisenhower chooses, this could set in motion the proce- dures under the Taft-Hartley labor act which would lead to a federal court order enjoin- ing the 7-day-old strike for 80 days of cooling off and bar- gaining. The hearing was finished in one hour and 45 minutes. As it ended, Farmer re- minded spokesmen of the striking International 'Long- shoremen's association and the waterfront employers that Taft-Hartley "will not bring Mario Lanza Dies in Rome Famous Tenor Reported Victim Of Heart Disease un- Rome American ten- or Mario Lanza died today in a Rome hospital. Lanza had been in the hospital for about a week, reportedly for treatment of a minor ill- ness. A friend said he suffered a heart attack and died Lanza shortly after noon. He was 38. Lanza two years ago dertook a new movie career in Europe after several years of controversial activity in the United States. A Philadelphia boy, Lanza vaulted to fame with the film 'The Great Caruso." He earned m one year, more than half of it in phono- graph records. In 1952 he was about the hottest thing in U. S. show business. Two years later he was in debt to the United States gov- ernment and having a hard time finding bookings. One of the reasons was that he got too fat for romantic parts. "He was a sick his friend Irving Aronson said of the period an which Lanza ballooned in size, failed to fill a Las Vegas ..engagement and was accused of break- ing a Hollywood movie con- tract.

Urges Conference He urged the parties to make every effort to get to- gether to bring about a peace- ful settlement." Spokesmen for both sides agreed but their positions, as outlined in sharp and hos- tile terms to the 3-man panel, gave little promise of early agreement. In presenting their case to the panel the stevedores con- tended employer demands would result in "wholesale" elimination of jobs. Management came back with an accusation that the walkout is an "irresponsible and illegal" violation of an agreement to extend for 15 days the contract which ex- pired Sept. 30. Louis Waldman, attorney for the International Long- shoremen's association got in first with the argument about job elimination. He told the panel in a state- ment that the employers wanted a free hand in auto- mation of cargo handling methods. In the years, Waldman last three said, auto- mation has "threatened to deprive ILA members of sub- stantial numbers of jobs." Following Waldman, Alex- ander P. Chopin, chairman of the New York Shipping Assoc- ciation, Inc., told the fact- finders his organization and the ILA agreed to the con- tract extension last Wednes- day. Within two or three hours thereafter, he said, New York Local 791 voted to defy the extension pact. He quoted William V. Brad- ley. ILA president, as stat- ing that the strike was in sup- port of gulf port locals which had no such extension agree- ment. "We are informed that the ILA now maintains that until such time as the south Atlan- tic and gulf ports agree to whatever terms are negotiat- ed in New York, there will be no contract consummated and put into effect in New Chopin said.
