In the past officers have issued citations and the truckers could continue on their way. Now the Highway Patrol says the truckers must remove the excess weight. The truckers contend there is a state law forbidding loosening of bind- ing chains while a truck is on the highway. Representatives of the California Association of Timber Truckers are meeting with Patrol officials tonight in an attempt to find a solution to the impasse.

The floods, which followed a rec- ord rain storm, drove per- sons from their homes, injured and washed out or buried acres of farmland, the offi- cials said. In addition, 446 persons are still missing after the raging flood that swept over Northern Kyushu is- land and Southwest Honshu. Health officials said 42 persons in the flood area died of dysen- tery. The other deaths resulted di- rectly from the flood.

Wiley (R-Wis) declared today South Ko- rean President Syngman Rhee is "playing with global dynamite" and damaging the cause of world peace by balking efforts for a Ko- rean truce. Wiley, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said in a statement that Rhee's threat to carry on the fighting invites a possible military disaster which "could shatter the chances for world peace in our time." "The brave South Koreans boys who are holding two-thirds of the battle line today could ruin the hope of peace by rash independent a sui- cidal offensive and severing them- selves from the United Wiley declared.

Wiley said he was speaking only for himself and not for the foreign .relations committee, "or for Ejiy- one else." But his words seemed to represent a growing vexation in the executive departments and Congress over Rhee's stubborn re- fusal to agree to armistice terms. The Wisconsin senator accused Rhee of violating commitments to the United Nations Command, evi- dently referring to Rhee's release of prisoners. He added that Rhee is "a ven- erable patriot who has so cour- ageously down through the years fought for his country" but said Rhee has "carried his views to such an illogical extreme as to jeopardize the efforts of the free world to protect his country." apartment for some ice cream at a nearby soda fountain.

Though hard- pressed economically, they are determined to be strong and re- main free. Preston Graver, AP chief of bureau in Pans, has just completed a tour of these two countries. In this first article of three on NATO's southern allies, he writes of Turkey's dramatic use of U. S. aid in her effort to hola the line along a 200-mile com man border witji Russia.) ISTANBUL, Turkey all NATO countries, Turkey has made the most dramatic use of American aid to build up military and economic power under the guns of the Soviet Union. Aside from a fighting force, the outstanding accomplishment nas been expansion of a road system such as the area has not had since it was run by the Romans. Now it has miles of machine- maintained highway compared with not even a tenth of that three years ago. In addition, its industrial plant, especially agriculture, has in- creased to such a degree that it has changed from a wheat-import- ing country to the fourth largest world wheat exporter. Turkey has a military force of about men which the Am- ericans find is in sound fighting condition and high in morale. Of this force, about are in the Navy and in the Air Force. The balance are land fighters.

Bohlen as Ambassador to Moscow. On that occasion, the White House and the State Department, being cornered, had to fight Sen. McCarthy. Boh- len was confirmed. Yet the real victory went to McCarthy. In particular, when the Bohlen fight was over, the P.epublican Senate leaders went to the White House, to declare that they "didn't want another Bohlen case." The President gave pledges of future co-operation. And Gen. Persons hastened to spread the happy word on Capitol Hill, that Sen. McCarthy and his ilk would thereafter enjoy a virtual veto on all Presidential appointments. This was the real explanation of the recent case of Paul H. Nitze. As first revealed in this this brilliant State Department of- ficial was nominated for a high Defense Department post by th'e White House itself. These report- ers were incorrect in stating, how- ever, that Nitze's appointment had then been vetoed by Sen. Robert A. Taft.

A group of correspondents from NATO countries visiting Turkey were shown tank, infantry and cav- alry units. This correspondent had been in Turkey during the last war, and had seen the Army as of that period. The contrast with to- day is striking. In those days the Turks had five separate types of rifles, the most modern of which were from World War I. Others included old single-shot breech loaders, old Indian frontier guns. Today they have modern rifles, including a good one they are mak- ing themselves. American artillery has been moved in. Cavalrymen are equipped with machine guns, rifles and bazookas.

Department of Agriculture The farm leader said he was not prepared to give specific sug- gestions for new federal farm laws but added that the farmers, who held theline against hunger-driven revolt in the lean depression years, should not now be for producing in abundance. During the depression, he re- ported, industry slashed its produc- tion 56 per cent; agriculture, only 4 per cent. "If the farmer had cut his pro- duction as much as industry did in order to increase the agricultural advisor said, "w e might have seen hungry people in revolt in this country." House Kills Bill To Impeach Douglas WASHINGTON UP) The House Judiciary Committee today killed a resolution of impeachment again- st Supreme Court Justice William 0. Douglas. It agreed to pigeon-hole it. The resolution was introduced two weeks ago by Rep. Wheeler (D-Ga) after Douglas had granted a stay of execution for atomic spies Julius and Ethel Rosenberg. Wheeler accused the justice of "high crimes and misdemeanors." Douglas' stay for the Rosenbergs was short-lived. The full court was called into special session and set it aside. The Rosenbergs were executed June 19. Five Drought State Governors to Meet AUSTIN, Tex. of five drought-stricken states will meet in Amarillo, Tex., Friday to discuss what state governments might do to help farmers and livestock men fight the Southwestern Gov! Allan Shivers of Texas announced the meeting yesterday as arguments over drought aid raged in Congress and among cattlemen. Sections of Texas, Oklahoma, Colorado, Kansas and New Mexi- co are in their fourth year of drought with pastures dried to dust and crops destroyed. No rain was reported in Texas yesterday and temperatures climbed above 100 degrees over much of the state. At Shivers' request, Texas ministers had led their congregations Sunday in prayers for rain. Panhandle cattlemen invited stockmen from four other states to meet them in Dalhart, Tex., Thursday to urge direct price sup- ports. 0. H. Finch Sr.; a Kansas and Texas rancher, accused direc- tors of the big livestock associa- tions of being so rich from oil "they can afford rugged individ- ualism." He said the directors are so rich or have other financial interests that they can do all right regard- less of cattle prices. "They aren't making a living from Finch said. "They can afford rugged individualism." Governors expected to take part in the Amarillo discussion are Dan Thornton of Colorado, Edward F. Arn of Kansas, Johnson Murray of Oklahoma, Edwin L. Mechem of New Mexico and Shivers. Sec- retary of Agriculture Benson, who made a first-hand inspection of the Texas drought situation June 27, will be invited to send a rep- resentative to the governor's meet- ing. In the Senate, Minority Leader Lyndon Johnson (D-Tex) called on Benson to launch a 118 million dollar cattle aid program. He charged the administration plan to provide eight million dollars in aid was "just enough to liquidate the remaining assets and (give the rancher) a coach ticket out of the disaster area." today. Two tugs put lines aboard the high-speeti freighter in the morn- ing and were trying to hold her from pounding to pieces on the rocks. The Navy said the ship was in "dangerous but there was a chance to save hy. Despite huge groundswells that pounded the ship, the 47 crewmen were removed with accident. Remaining aboard were the skip- per, Capt. Nicholas Telesmanic, and an emergency watch of these six men: Chief Mate Helmuth E.

Higgins, Sommerville, Mass., and Fire Hose, Clubs Quell Maryland, Rebel Inmates 53 Convicts Stage 4-Hour Battle in Reformatory Cottage JESSUPS, Md. score of state troopers used clubs and fire hoses this morning to break up a riot of 53 women at the Maryland State Reformatory. The police removed 25 of the women to another cottage and apparently had the others under control after being held at bay for four hours. The women, all Negroes except one, had barricaded themselves in the cottage and warded off police with pieces of broken furniture, crockery and makeshift knives. Two women attendants, locked in their room during the outburst at the reformatory 10 miles southwest of Baltimore, were released un- harmed by the troopers. Slashed On Arms State Police Lt. Martin M. Puncke was slashed on the arm in an earlier attempt to break into the rioting cottage. Six had forced their way into the cot- tage previously, but had to retreat in the face of the screaming mob of women. The score of troopers finally made a successful assault while another 25 were ready to use tear gas if they were repulsed. The 20, using only clubs, got in through a ruse. The rioters were talked into releasing an aged em- ploye. When the door was opened, the police rushed in. They grabbed fire hoses to beat back the female mob. Within half an hour, amidst the sounds of screams and swishing clubs, the police had the cottage under control. The inside was a wreck of smashed furniture, crock- ery and water. Morning's Outbreak Miss Alice Blum, superintendent of the reformatory which houses prisoners, said this morning's outbreak was continuation of a disturbance Monday night. She said a woman transferred to the reformatory three days ago from the mental hospital at Crownsville had become defiant and barricaded herself in her room. Guards from the nearby house of correction for males which houses used tear gas to oust her, Miss Blum said. She said the other women yelled encouragements to the mutineer and hooted the guards. She called this morning's out- bur s t a "spontaneous rebellion against rules and regulations headed by a few ringleaders." Girl, 6, Suffers Cut From 'Jump Into Bed' SCHENECTADY, N.
