Appleton Post-Crescent (Newspaper) - October 12, 1959, Appleton, Wisconsin APPLETON POST-CRESCENT VOL. LI No. 92 44 A, B APPLETON-NEENAH-MENASHA, WIS., MONDAY, OCTOBER ASSOCIATED PRESS WIRE SERVICE Price Seven Cents Order Could Halt ut Not End Steel Walkout p AP Wlrephoto The Members of President Eisenhower's 3-man fact finding board in the steel strike convened today at the labor department in Washintgon. Left to right are: John A. Perkins of Newark, Del., Chairman George W. Taylor of Philadelphia, Pa., and Paul N. Lahoczky of Columbus, Ohio. FTC Can't Control Rigged Quiz Shows Not Empowered to Eliminate Deception, Chairman States Washington The chairman of the federal trade commission said today decep- tive entertainment such as rigged TV shows is not some- agency can reg- thing his ulate. Earl W. Kintner, the FTC head, told house investigators his agency has never gone be- yond control of advertising which results in unfair busi- ness practices. The house subcommittee on legislative oversight has heard testimony that ques- tions and answers were sup- plied in advance to some con- testants on such programs as "Twenty-One" Dough." In reply to questions, Kint- ner conceded that this consti- tutes "a gray area in the law." He said congress could en- sct a law making it a crimin- al offense to rig a TV show, adding: "It would have a sal- utary effect." Would Broaden Rules investigation never got to the question of the commission authority to act. He described the complaint as having come from a wom- an contestant. She alleged that the quiz show's producer questioned her in advance on her knowledge of certain sub- jects, purportedly to "choke her off" the program. Farmer Killed With His Shotgun Sheboygan A farm- er chasing marauding dogs and "Tic Tac was decapitated Sunday by a blast from his own shotgun as Kintner also suggested broadening of the rules of the federal communication com- mission, which is the federal regulatory body for television and radio. As for his own agency, Kint- ner said the FTC so far has never exercised jurisdiction over deceptive entertainment. "In my opinion there is a serious question whether such jurisdiction he said. If the commission were to exercise censorship over en- tertainment, Kintner said, there is a serious question of the limit at which it should stop. It would take the com- mission far afield from the functions intended by con- gress, he added. Complaint in 1956 Kintner said the courts have, held that where no sentation of products is in- volved, the commission has no jurisdiction. But he said the commission staff in 1956 conducted a pre- liminary investigation of a complaint involving the TV quiz program, "The Big Sur- prise." The program went off the air, Kintner said, and the he pulled the weapon from the back seat of his car. The victim, Edward Schilz, 44, of route 1, Kewaskum, set out after the dogs that had been causing damage on his property and other nearby farms. He caught up with the pack on Sheboygan County Trunk Highway HH just north of the Washington county line road. Coroner Red Simpson said that as Schilz pulled his shot- gun out of the rear seat of the automobile, the gun dis- charged accidentally. The full force struck Schilz in the head, killing him instantly.

Y. A morning of indecisive bal- loting in the U. N. General assembly left communist Poland and western-backed Turkey firmly deadlocked today in a contest over a seat in the security council. The voting was expected to continue at an afternoon ses- sion. Poland was leading throughout the balloting and at one point was only six votes short of the required two-thirds ma- jority of those present and voting. Poland's greatest strength was shown on the seventh andj ninth ballots wiien it got 48 ed After three contact the days one of such concrete agreement mentioned by Lo- pez Mateos at a news confer- ence is that the projected Di- ablo dam on the Rio Grande should be called "Friendship dam." Of the driving from the three days he has spent in the company of Ei- senhower and other top U. S. officials, the Mexican presi- dent said: Favors Personal- Talks "We have tried to trace the paths which will lead us to cordial results. I insist that personal contact permits a notable advance in the solu- tion of problems. he add- ed, "does not always solve everything.' Two which other Lopez subjects Mateos on said there is agreement in .prin- ciple are an increase in the exchange of students and teachers and U.

She had just packed to leave a house she shared with five men in her summer theater troupe. Witnesses told County Atty. John J.

Sheriff John Sheedy jailed brunet Chester Harvey Smith, 32, a slight 140-pounder and also from Hollywood, on a murder charge. Along withj Miss Ethridge and their fel- low players, he was working as an extra in the film "The Alamo." "She was getting a better part in the movie."

No Early Decision On the twelfth ballot, the vote was back virtually where it started. Poland received 46 and Turkey 35. With both sides insisting they would stand firm, there appeared little chance of an early solution. Polish Foreign Minister Adam Rapacki said Poland was in the contest to stay. Western supporters of Tur- key also said they were stand- ing firm. There was a possibility the deadlock might continue for weeks. Ecuador and Ceylon were elected without opposition to fill two other vacant council seats. On the first ballot Poland received 46 votes to 36 for Turkey. On the second Poland got 43 and Turkey 38. A U. S. spokesman said the United States would stick to Turkey indefinitely. Chief U. S. Delegate Henry Cabot Lodge said he was optimistic that Turkey would win eventu- ally. Poland and Turkey are con- testing to succeed Japan, whose 2- year term on the se- curity council ends Jan. 1. Ceylon was unopposed to succeed Canada as a British commonwealth member, and Ecuador was the sole candi- date for the Latin-American seat now held by Panama. One contest also was listed for the economic and social council, between India and Japan to take the seat held by Pakistan. Unopposed candi- dates were Brazil, to succeed Mexico; Denmark, to succeed Finland, and Britain, Poland and the Soviet Union for re- election. The terms, also start- ing Jan. 1, are for three years. Milwaukee Woman Dies of Bulbar Polio Milwaukee Mrs. Irv- Virginia Doctor Fatally Wounded In Gun Battle Christiansburg, Va. A prominent southwest Vir- ginia doctor died today after being wounded in a gun bat- tle with a Christiansburg town councilman on a rural road. The councilman was charged with murder. Montgomery county officers said the shooting began when Councilman Garland Higgins, 35, used his car last night to block another automobile oc- cupied by Dr. William L. Flanagan, 31; Higgins' es- tranged wife, Alice Lou; and her 5-year-old daughter. Flanagan fired a .38 caliber pistol and Higgins a .22 cali- ber pistol in the exchange of shots. Flanagan was struck in the mouth and arm. He died this morning in Radford Commu- nity hospital. Higgins, hit in the abdomen, was reported in fair condition at Altamont hospital. Authorities said Higgins and his wife had been es- tranged for about a year and that Mrs. Higgins had filed for divorce. Raid Series of Fashionable Shops During Weekend London A daring band systematically raided a chain of jewelry stores in fashionable London streets over the weekend and took jewels worth pounds Police said it appeared to be the biggest burglary ever carried out in London's west end. The thieves looted four shops one after another, ap- parently using duplicate keys to gain entry. They cleared the shelves of rings, necklac- es, brooches and watches. No one apparently saw or heard them. The four stores belong to a group called the Goldsmiths and Silversmiths association. Familiar With Stores Three are in fashionable Mayfair at Oxford circus, Piccadilly circus and the Bur- lington arcade, where mil- lionaires go shopping. The fourth, only recently acquir- ed by the association, is I mile away, near Victoria sta tion. Police said the thieves ap peared to have an intimate knowledge of the store chain Apparently they started on their round of the stores about 4 a.m. Sunday, whei revelers in nearby night club, had gone home. The gang calmly unlocked a door of the Oxford circus shop and col lected a pound haul. Three night watchmen who guard the expensive little shops of Burlington arcade which runs off Piccadilly never heard a thing as the thieves got in there. Police assume they clambered over the" wrought iron gates which stand at each end of the ar- cade. Want Consumer Goods Public Pressure Said To Increase in Russia BY PRESTON GROVER he publicly discussec but per-! consumer goods on his recent Union May Go Out Again After 30 Days Unless Settlement Is Attained ine F. Dhooge, 36-year old wife of Milwaukee county's as sistant medical examiner, died of bulbar polio Sunday sistent public pressure for more consumer goods has i-hown itself in recent and the Soviet government is seeking to meet it to some ex- tent. Premier Nikita S. Khrush- chev made clear last week tour of Siberia, to spots he had never visited as premier. He ordered a better supply of consumer goods to Vladi- vostok, the Russian port on the Pacific which is icebound for three months a year. Letters in Papers In a speech he told his peo- I w w 3_ that his government will con-iple to drcss better and get Washington The United Stcelworkers today notified President Eisenhower's fact-finders that, if forced back to work by court order, they may strike again when the 80-day injunction expires. USW President David J. McDonald testified at the opening of hearings under the Taft-Hartley act that the Steel- workers will end their 90-day strike "if they are required by law to do so." "But the union will not be McDonald added. "The basic issue will re- main. There may be a truce enforced by law but there will be no permanent peace." The paramount issue at stake, McDonald said, "is whether the companies will break the union." The 3-man fact-finding pan- el .headed by George W. Tay- lor already had made known its belief that the Taft-Hart- ley injunction procedure is adequate to handle major strikes. McDonald's testimony made it clear that, unless the panel succeeds in its avowed pur- pose of trying to achieve a settlement by mediation and voluntary bargaining, the na- tionwide strike already the longest steel shutdown in his- tory probably will be re- sumed about New Year's. Hints at Court Fight McDonald and the Steel- workers' chief counsel, Arthur J. Goldberg, contended that a "cooling off" presumed next step after the fact-finders' hearing under terms of the Taft-Hartley act not justified by any pres- ent threat to either the nation- al health or safety. Goldberg, gave notice, more- overT that if Eisenhower in- structs the attorney general to obtain a federal district court injunction, the union will car- ry its resistance into the court. "I think it's our responsi- bility to do everything within the limits of our authority to settle this said Tay- lor, known as a skilled arbi- ter of labor-management djs- putes. He is professor of busi- ness at the University of Pennsylvania and was chair- man of the war labor board during World war II. Welcomes Efforts Help from the panel was welcomed by David J. Mc- Donald, president of the Unit- ed Steelworkers union. If the panel can help achieve an agreement, he said, "we will be most happy." Officially the board must determine whether continua- tion of the strike would cause a national emergency. In the open hearings, the steel com- panies were expected to ar- gue that it would, while the union was expected to argue the opposite. The union argument appar- ently would follow these lines: 1.

Bob Wilkinson of Great Falls suffered a lacerated heel and wrenched knee last Thursday in a tree-top struggle with the bear in a wilderness area of north- western Montana. Wilkinson was tracking elk when he encountered three grizzlies. Two of the animals moved away when they saw Wilkinson, but the to weigh 450 Wilkinson turned, the nearest tree. Kept Climbing The bear first started to leave the scene, but return- ed before Wilkinson was more than five feet off the ground. The bear gained rapidly on Wilkinson and clawed off his boots. "With boots said Wilkinson, "I could get a good hold and kept climbing until I ran out of tree." The tree was 15 feet tall. "I sat there in the tree top and looked down at the Wilkinson said last night from a hospital bed, "thinking I had him licked. Then he started up the trunk after me." The grizzly grabbed one of Wilkinson's ankles in his mouth. Then they both bear all the way to the ground and Wilkinson to branches a short distance off the ground.
