Investigate Blacktopping in Cerro Gordo AMES UP The State Highway Commission voted unanimously Wednesday to ask the losva attor ney generals office to investigate a secondary road project being carried out by the Cerro Gordo County Board of Supervisors The commission acted after re ceiving a letter from Carl E Cox assistant district engineer at Ma son City In the letter Cox said the pro ject apparently is being carried out by the supervisors without complying with approved prac tices and without complying with the posted bidding proposal The road involved is referred to as the R o ck we 11S waled ale road A rolled stone base is being constructed by day labor The resolution of he commis sion notified the attorney general that from state observation the Cerro Gordo supervisors were not complying with the law An in vestigation was requested Originally Cerro Gordo County contemplated a project for stage blacktopping on certain roads but Iowa Highway Commission engineers said this was not con sidered feasible Later the Cerro Gordo supervis ors advertised the project for let ting but accepted none of the bids One of the questions indicated by Cox in his letter was whether the base was being constructed on the same specifications as the project when it was advertised Chief Engineer John Butter said the reason the commission has entered the picture is that state law requires that whenever any possibility of wrong procedure in secondary road work arises it must be reported to the attorney general IN SYRIAN CRISIS Ike Thinks Russians f 11 JL I Full Control DES MOINES 0 A

MYSTERY Who Is WASHINGTON President Eisenhower said Wednesday the ultimate aim of the proCommu nist bid for power in Syria is Sovi et control of the country He told a news conference how ever the United States govern ment actually does not know how far the process has gone He added this is not at present cases one of those cases which would justify any kind of action under his Middle East program adopted early this year That program spelled out in a congressional resolution provides for US eco nomic aid and use of American armed force if needed and in vited to head off Red aggression in the Middle East Although he did not say specif ically that he holds Moscow en tirely responsible for what has happened Eisenhower left no doubt that he blames the Soviet government Several times Eisenhower de clined to equate Syrian rule at the moment with rule by international Soviet ism Once he told a questioner that one should always give his enemy a line of retreat if possible This implied that Eisenhower hopes or thinks the situation is not beyond recall from the Ameri can point of view Eisenhower dealt also with these other matters CIVIL RIGHTS Republican congressional leaders Eisenhower said are ready with a proposa designed to break the stalemate over civil rights legislation Eisen hower made it clear the GOP be called a compromise which has his approval Eisenhower replied that the plan would leave the bill with sufficient effectiveness but at the same time would quiet the alarm of those who take the posi tion that the measure as the House passed it provides for ex cessive punishment in civil rights CONGRESS Eisenhower said he is tremendously disappointed in the record to date of the Demo craticcontrolled 85th Congress Asked whether he blames Dem ocrats or Republicans for that situation Eisenhower simply re plied that to the extent members of Congress have voted against his program they are to blame for what he considers its disappoint ing performance Eisenhower also was askec whether he blames the situation on the constitutional ban agains a third presidential term He re plied he feels that was not th decisive factor As for whether h regrets

dollars below the proposed for this year by Presi dent Eisenhower in his budget message to Congress And the aim is to hold next years spending at or below the level of this year Mean Business A top administration adviser said Wednesday Weve had Away FOREIGN AID Eisenhower said anew he hopes the Senate will restore every cent of the 809milliondollarfojreign aid cut voted by the House He went on to say that he also hopes the best possible deal on foreign aid funds will come out of the eventual SenateHouse confer ence which will resolve differ ences between the two chambers SPECIAL SESSION

went on but by that time had received a lot of Com munist arms and the proposal to build the dam was withdrawn The President did not touch on whatDulles role may have been He did add that Congress had
