Appleton Post-Crescent (Newspaper) - October 19, 1959, Appleton, Wisconsin APPLETON POST CRESCENT VOL. LI No. 98 34 A, B APPLETON-NEENAH-MENASHA, WIS., MONDAY, OCTOBER ASSOCIATED PRESS WIRE SERVICE Price Seven Cents Deadlock on UN Council Seat Still Unbroken Turkey Pulls Ahead Of Poland for First Time in Tight Race BY MAX HARRELSON United Nations, N.Y. Turkey pulled ahead of com- munist Poland for the first time today, but new balloting failed to break the stubborn deadlock over a seat in the U.N. Security council. After trailing through 28 secret ballots in the 82-nation general assembly, Turkey went in front on the twenty- ainth with 41 votes to 39 for Poland. On the thirtieth ballot Poland moved into the lead again but slipped back on the thirty-first. After it became apparent that the stalemate was as tight as ever, the assembly agreed to postpone further voting until Nov. 2. It was hoped the two weeks recess would produce a compromise. Earlier Voting When the voting began last Monday Poland held a sub- stantial lead. At one point Po- land received 48 votes, only six short of the required two- thirds majority. In the voting this "morning neither candi- date was near the necessary majority. The see-saw voting today was the result of intense dip- lomatic activity over the weekend. On the first ballot of the so Poland received' 41 and Tur- key 39. On the twenty-seventh and twenty-eighth Poland got 41 and Turkey Then Tur- key edged into the lead on the twenty-ninth. On the thirtieth Poland got 41 and Turkey 40. On the thirty first Turkey moved ahead again with 42 votes to 39 for P'olafid. French Police Seize Rightist De Gaulle Foes Paris Police raid- ing squads struck through- out France .today at men suspected of leading ex- tremist right-wing action groups opposed to President Charles de Gaulle's Algeri- an policy. Sources in the interior ministry said the raids were aimed at about 50 places. There was no offi- cial statement as to how many persons were round- ed up. The police strikes follow- ed an assassination attempt last week against left-wing Sen. Francois Mitterrand and the arrest on the Bel- gian frontier of a former right wing deputy, Jean Berthomier, with a charge of plastic explosive in his car. Fear Terrorism These and lesser inci- dents have set off fears in France that rightist groups planned strong action to thwart De Gaulle's offer to let Algerians decide their own future after the current rebellion ends. Terrorist tracts have been distributed in France naming some prominent personalities on death lists' of the rightists. Newspa- pers voiced fears that there is a plot to stage a coup against the government. Bodyguards have been as- signed to prominent politi- cal figures. One of the men being questioned is Gaullist Dep- uty Lucien Neuwirth, who warned in the national as- sembly just a few hours before the attack on Mit- terrand that extremist thugs had crossed the Span- ish frontier en route from Algeria to Paris.

Langelle, left Langelle today for-home with his wife and three children, having been declared unwelcome last week by the Soviet govern- ment on spying charges. Russian Account Well-informed Soviet jour- nalists said the Soviet version of the Langelle case will be published here shortly in re- ply to Washington charges that the youthful Missourian had been virtually kidnaped, manhandled and framed. These sources said the" So- viet foreign ministry had in- formed the United States would not "publish anything about the incident in order to continue the current friend- lier tone of U.S.-Soviet rela- tions. They added that publi- cation had been decided upon only because of the publicity emanating from Washington, but a date to print the Soviet version here had not yet been set. This is the Soviet version of the Langelle story as distrib- morning when two men en- tered, armed with a high- powered rifle and a pistol. In the tavern at the time were Mrs. Roy Mitchell, who owns the tavern with her husband; Kenneth Ciesielczyk, route 1, Bonduel; Charles Spoehr, route 1, Shiocton; Mr. and Mrs. Roy Fischer, who live next door to the tavern, and Mr. and Mrs. Allen Mitchell, son- and daughter-m-law of the owners. No Joke The man with rifle, officials said, walked to the juke box and said "this is a holdup." The other man went behind unexpectedly in the Gulf ofjthe bar and started going Mexico Saturday, created'through the cash register, about its only excitement When Mrs. Fischer said, fore it hit when it was "What is this, a the eventual publication: Passengers on a bus bound in toward the center of Mos- cow during the morning rush hour about 9 a. m. last Friday noticed two unknown persons exchanging material.

Arranges for Family In a scene at the embassy he handed a signed statement to Consul Gen. Richard Snyder renouncing his American citi- zenship. He said he was granted Soviet citizenship two weeks ago. He reported he will not be allowed to change his mind and will never be allowed to leave Russia. Webster was sent to the ex- hibition by the Rand Develop- ment corporation, makers of plastics. Dr. H. J. Rand, head of the corporation, was on hand today when Webster's decision was announced. Rand said Webster claim- ed he had made all necessary arrangements for his wife and children to be cared for. He promised to telephone his father, living somewhere in Pennsylvania.

Authorities reported that a man in a dark sedan was spot- ted speeding away from both the new fire, which spread at a terrific rate, and a third which was quickly contained. Fresh firefighters were summoned, bringing to the number of men'fighting the tw.o fires in Angeles National forest. The original fire, which started last Tuesday, had de- stroyed acres from the northern outskirts of Los An- geles foothill communities northward for several miles. A force of men fought to throw up firelines in front of the fire as it crept northward. Twenty aerial tankers helped. Covers Acres The new fire over acres in the first 24 hours after it was discovered at noon yesterday eight miles j northwest of Castaic. about 20 miles northwest of the larger, blaze. Six hundred men were) thrown into the battle, aided by six aerial tankers. The first fire took its second life.

Missing Child Found Safe in Missouri Woods Potosi, little girl missing all night in near freez- ing temperatures in the Clark National forest was found alive at a. m. today, three miles from the point where she disappeared. Donna Rulo, 3J, was shivering from the cold but otherwise appeared to be in good condition.. The child, still wearing only a light summer dress, walked out onto a country lane from a wooded sector just as seven searchers headed by Arthur Edsel were passing by. More than 400 searchers, in- cluding 150 soldiers, were combing the rugged area for the child when she was found. Donna, who retained her composure despite her experi- ence, was immediately taken to a large bonfire at the search headquarters. The child was calm but her parents broke in- to tears as they embraced her. Toft Law Action Held Inevitable idential fact-finders today reported "with sad hearts" their failure to settle tha i nation's longest steel strike. President Eisenhower, how- ever, put off asking for a court injunction sending the i Stcelworkers back to the mills. While House Press Sec. James C. Hagerty said there is "no time limit" on the president's study of the report of his board of inquiry which tried for a week without suc- cess to bring agreement be- tween industry and the United Steelworkers. This apparently left time' for them to make voluntary moves toward agreement by bargaining. Eisenhower's 3- member fact finding board gave little hope for early suc- cess in their 37-page report to the White House. "As we submit this report, the parties have 'failed to reach an agreement and we see no prospects for an early cessation of the the report said. "The board cannot point to any single issue of any con- sequence' whatsoever upon which the parties are in agree- ment."
