Associated Press and United Press International FuU Leass MASON CITY IOWA FRIDAY MAY 27 1960 7e a Copy Thls Paper Consists of Two No Army t Turkey Senate the lingo of Capital Constituents not sure of what is said By DICK WEST WASHINGTON UPI All of Washington is divided into two parts The Hill and Downtown I was up on the hill today a bureaucraft will tell his wife as he staggers home at eventide She will immediately send the children out of the room put a damp cloth on his forehead and pour an extra hooker of gin into the martini pitcher At least thats what she should do In the peculiar par lance of the Capital he was tell ing her that he had been testify ing before some congressional committee and had had a hard day THE for Cap itol Hill has come to mean anything having to do with Con gress The rest of the govern m e n t is lumped together as Downtown These terms seem to imply a geographic distinc tion but this does not always follow For instance the Supreme Court is located on Capitol Hill but is considered Downtown Some other Downtown agen cies are located several miles out in the country I dont know why I telling you all of this except that it seems to fit in with the prob lems thatRep Jim Wright D Tex has been having with our abbreviated lingo Recently a woman constituent who was visiting here telephoned Wrights suite in the House Of fice Building and asked to speak to the congressman SORRY said the secretary who answered Hes on the floor My land exclaimed the naive caller Is he ill The secretary then was obliged to explain that on the floor meant that Wright was attending to duties in the House chamber When the congress man heard about the incident opens its inquiry on spy incident llTATUTEMlT P fP ITI IP t H P ffrP P AP Hhotofax COUP IN TURKEY Turkey a keystone in the Wests defenses against communism now is in con trol of the Army The map shows the countrys vital position with respect to the Soviet Union US is confident that Turkey will hold firm WASHINGTON W United States officials were confident Friday that Turkey would hold firmly to its anchor position as an antiCommunist ally despite the overthrow of the government of Premier Adnan Menderes The strategically located na tion is a member of both the North Atlantic Treaty Organi zation and the Central Middle Eastern Treaty Organization Its geographical position gives it a vital importance in the alliance structure Turkey controls the straits between the Sovietdominated Black Sea and the Western controled Mediterranean It guards the southeastern flank of nonCommunist Europe and the western flank of nonCom munist Asia It controls the approaches from the Soviet Union into the continent of Africa and the Arab world of the Middle East Officials reported that little was known here about the military group which seized power from Menderes But de clarations from this group that it would stand loyally by Tur keys commitments to NATO CENTO and the United Na tions were accepted at the State department at face value Turkey has a very long rec ord of opposing expanionist pressures from the Soviet Union prior to the establish ment of the Soviet system at Moscow Fate of school doubt WASHINGTON w Inclusion of an antisegregation amend he instructed his staff not to use i mcnt raised questions Friday about Senate acceptance of the first general school construction bill ever passed by the House A long wrangling session ended in a 206189 House vote Thursday to authorize in federal grants over a four year period to help with construction of public school classrooms Sponsors had hoped for quick approval by the Senate which that expression any more A short time later another con stituent called and was told that Wright couldnt come to t h e phone because he was in the House Well came the indignant response I didnt expect him to be out in the yard WRIGHT REASONED that this was no way to influence voters and in a recent news letter to the home folks he en deavored to straighten things out If you should chance to call here at such a time he wrote be prepared to hear a rather lengthy explanation that I can not be reached at just that mo ment because I am attending a session of the House of Repre sentatives which meets in the Capitol which is across the street from the House Office Building which is where my of fice is Wrights only worry now is that a constituent will try to contact him while he is making a speech in the front part of the chamber If that happens the visitor is almost certain to be informed by a page boy that the congressman is in the well Telemetry troubles plaguing Midas WASHINGTON ffi Some thing has gone wrong with the new Midas satellite which is supposed to spot instantly the launching of any rocket or mis silc beneath it The Air Force said Friday the telemetry equip ment was not working properly and unless it can be set right by commands radioed from the earth the detection system cannot be tested

end to U S technical assistance to Cuba within six months Eisenhower issued the order under the foreign aid law ban against providing aid that is not in the national interest of the United States No specific reason was cited Premier under arrest ISTANBUL Turkey ffi The government of Prime Minister Adnan Menderes was over thrown Friday in an army coup The people of Turkey reacted with apparent relief to the ous ter of the strongman regime Turks hung huge banners from windows and cheered the army both in Istanbul and An kara The military rebels promised to hold free elections then hand over the government to the win ners The army move followed month of unrest which began with student demonstrations against Menderes and his gov ernments oppressive measures against the Premiers chief po litical opposition the Republican Peoples party of former Presi dent Ismet Inonu OFFICIALS REPORTS reach ing the British government from Ankara said army leaders of the coup had seized Menderes himself as well as all members of his government The rebels were quick to as sure the West that Menderes overthrow meant no change in Turkeys staunch alliance with the West against Soviet commu nism The military group said it had acted because of the crisis through which democracy in Turkey is passing and to avoid national fratricide It said it would stay in power until free and honest elections could be held then would hand over the nations administratio to the winners of the election A STATE Department spokes man in Washington said the de partment had been informec that all branches of the Turkish military participated in the revolt All commercial communica tions with the outside world ap peared to have been cut off summarily Despite the word from Tur key that the coup was bloodless one report to the British foreign office said the takeover was preceded by shooting in the streets of Ankara before dawn Diplomatic authorities in Lon don said they had received in formation from Ankara identify ing the man at the head of the Army revolt as Brig Cemel Gursen 62 But it seemed clear that if Gursen is the ringleader he must have had widespread sup portfrom the army The revolt was aimed as much against the hierarchy of the armed forces as against the government it self I hasten to tell all fellow countrymen that I am not by any means desirous of becom ing a dictator Gursen said in a broadcast to the nation PREMIER MENDERES ews in a utshell FROM OUR WIRE SERVICES NEW YORK James Montgomery Flagg 82 the famed artist who drew the World War I poster of Uncle Sam died Friday TOKYO
