Tremors Still

In California
BAKERSFIELD, Calif.--Sharp
jolts continued to rock this quake-
weary city yesterday after early-
hour tremors caused considerable
minor damage and drove hundreds
of families from their homes.
A severe shock at 3:52 a.m. (Ann
Arbor time) forced abandonment
of Kern County courthouse. Su-
perior Judge Robert Lambert mov-
ed a criminal trial to a vacant lot.
County Clerk Vera Gibson set up
her stand in a parking lot.
EIGHT DAYS of quakes have
jarred loose a section of concrete
and brick facing 60 by seven feet
on a wall of the three-story court-
house. Engineers feared the sec-
tion might give way.
Heavy jolts also occurred yes-
terday at 12:05 a.m., 1:02 a.m.,
8:49 and 10:37 am. They were
the sharpest since the big one of
July 21 which cost 13 lives and
seriously damaged the towns of
Tehachapi and Arvin.
Seismologists said the after-
quakes will continue for some

time. Several hundred, mostly
minor, have occurred since July 21.

Radar Reveals Flying
'Whatzits' Over Capital
WASHINGTON-(P)-Radar screens showed flying "whatzits"
over the nation's capital for five hours early yesterday, but Air Force
experts said they appeared to be mere layers of cold air.
Maj. Gen. John A. Samford, Director of Air Force Intelligence,
discounted any theory that the Washington area is being menaced
by unknown aerial vehicles from abroad or from other worlds.
EXPERIENCED radar operators at the Civil Aeronautics Admin-
istration Traffic Control Center reported scores of unidentified objects

Local "flying saucer" excitement

GEORGE P. SMITH, liason of-
officer in the county's Civil De-
fense Department, also reported
that his plane spotters had not
seen any of the strange objects
which have recently plagued resi-
dents across the nation. Some of
the local weekend saucer reports
could, he felt, be traced to a flight
of B-36's over Ann Arbor Sunday
Universityaastronomers were

grain of salt.
Prof. Leo Goldberg, chairman of

restrial nature. /
Citing the case against men
from other worlds, Wyatt pointed
out that the chances of intelligent
beings developing the ability to
fly at precisely the time we have
become interested in it is practi-
cally zero.

night last year.
Sullivan said they were in per-

served them about 35 degrees

In hot, humid weather-such as
Washington and other Eastern
areas have been having-layers of
cold air are likely to get sandwich-

These layers produce strong
reactions on radar screens, the
officers said.
They didn't add any specific ex-
planation of the reported moving
lights, but presumably the cold air
layers could reflect searchlights or
other lights from the earth below.
The Air Force chiefs conceded
that of about 2,000 reports on fly-
ing saucers, about 400 have not
yet been explained satisfactorily.
The Air Force is giving these re-

Steel Mills
Stage Quick
Output To Reach
PITTSBURGH-(A)-The speed
with which the country's steel in-
dustry is staging a comeback af-
ter the 55-day long steel strike
promised yesterday to salve the
hurts caused by steel shortages.
But some new layoffs were re-
ported. Some steel companies still
hadn't swung into the back-to-
work parade.
* * *
THE AMERICAN Iron and Steel
Institute, the industry's fact-as-
sembly agency, reported in New
York that steel mill operations
this week will reach 45.4 per cent
of capacity. That represents 943,-
000 tons of production.
Few steel sources foresaw such
speed in regaining momentum at
the time the steel strike was
settled in the White House last
Thursday. Last week's rate was
only 15.3 per cent.
Since an estimated 20 million
tons of steel were lost during the
strike and most available supplies
were used up during the walkout,
steel shortages are found to plague
the nation for weeks to come.
SOME TROUBLE spots still re-
main despite the settlement reach-
ed by big producers and the strik-
ing CIO United Steelworkers.
In New York, Benjamin F.
Fairless, chairman of United
States Steel Corp., said his com-
pany's operating rate will be
back to normal in about two
A cheerful note was sounded in
the iron ore industry. The Lake

in the next two months.

Consternation gripped the
French government yesterday in
the wake of a United States note
turning down a plea for more
arms aid.
Defense Minister Rene Pleven
Heusel Made
Security Head
Albert Heusel, who retired July
15 as detective captain in the Ann
Arbor Police Department, has been
appointed University plant de-
partment security officer, accord-
ing to Walter M. Roth, superin-
tendent of the department.
He will take over the new post
Aug. 1. The appointment is a move
on the part of the University to
improve security regulations cov-
ering its property in Ann Arbor,
Roth said.
*. * * . .
HEUSEL will be active in two
main areas. First, he will supervise
the night watchmen force ofaap-
proximately 18 men who patrol
buildings to guard against fire or
illegal entry. This will relieve the
present supervisor and give him
more time to devote to his many
other duties.
He will also serve as the chief
contact man between the Ann
Arbor Police Department and
the University. This is expected
to centralize responsibility for
keeping the police informed
about University events in which
they may be interested as well
as to simplify the exchange of
information by both sides when-
ever necessary.
Heusal's duties may be further
expanded in the future, but no
definite decision has been made
concerning that.

moving towards the establishment
of a separate police force.
"It is hoped that the pattern of
co-operation with the Ann Arbor
Police Department already in ef-
fect in the matter of enforcement
of parking regulations in the cam-
pus areas will be continued and
expanded, he pointed out.
"The appointment is merely a
move on the part of the Universi-
ty to centralize responsibility for
maintaining close contact with the

Gen. Pierre Koenig, head of the
National Defense Committee, to
consider the consequences.
THE PRESS and public too,
were shocked. Afternoon newspap-
ers declared France would now be
unable to equip and raise 10 new
divisions. They said some French
armament factories would have to
close and at least 25,000 persons
would be thrown out of work.
The United States turned
down their urgent plea for some
439 million dollars additional aid
to enable French factories to
step up arms production.
Diplomatic authorities said yes-

Paris July 25 promised only ap-

year production program.

BUENOS AIRES - (P) - Presi-

Dixiecrats May
Back Eisenhower
Southern State Conventions Might
Not Concur with National Choice
By The Associated Press
Flashes of Southern static blurred the Democratic harmony
picture yesterday amid talk that some Dixie segments might bolt
and throw their support to the Republican candidacy of Gen. Dwight
D. Eisenhower.
Rumblings of revolt came loudest from South Carolina, Virginia,
Louisiana and Mississippi.
STILL ANGRY over the call for a party loyalty pledge at the
Democratic National Convention
in Chicago last week, some Dixie
Democrats said there was consid-
eace Terable uncertainty in the South
about Gov. Adlai Stevenson of Ill-
ft eseinois, the Democratic standard
ma bearer.

A possible straw in the wind
turned up when the Richmond,
Va., News Leader came out for
the Eisenhower-Nixon ticket-
marking the first time since
1896 that a Richmond newspa-
per has supported a Republican
Presidential candidate.
The News Leader said the Re-
publicans offer "one vital thing:
change. New faces. A fresh ap-
IN SOUTH Carolina, the Demo-
cratic state convention will be re-
convened Aug. 6 to decide whether
to go along with the national par-
ty in the November election.
In Virginia, Gov. John Battle
refused to comment on the ques-
tion of a possible bolt until the
democratic state central com-
mittee meets. The committee
has authority to reconvene-the
State Convention.
In Louisiana, Gov. Kennon said
the State Central Committee
should decide whether the Louisi-
ana party would support the na-
tional ticket. Kennon would not
comment on the possibility that
Eisenhower's name might be
placed before the committee.
Gov. Sam Lumpkin announced
Eisenhower's name will be placed
before the state convention when
it reconvenes next month. How-
ever, Gov. Hugh White has pledg-
ed support to the Democratic

In Georgia, the State Demo-
cratic Committee will meet
Monday. It is pledged to the
national ticket. Gov. Herman
Talmadge expressed complete
-approvalof Stevenson, but said
he is dissatisfied with several
points in the platform involv-
ing civil rights.
On a broader scale, the threat
of a dixie revolt raised a puzzling
question for both major parties:
How to woo the South and yet win
the big Northern cities?
Meanwhile, Stevenson and his
Vice-Presidential running mate,
Sen. John J. Sparkman of Ala-
bama, pledged a fighting cam-
paign to extend the Democratic
rule in the White House over an-
other four-year span.
