'ederal Aid Requested

3OSTON ()P-Gov. Foster Furcola yesterday declared an emer-
in Massachusetts because 'of the drought and appealed to
dent Dwight D. Eisenhower for federal aid for farmers.
'hese developments coincided with the first substantial rain in
eastern Ma'ssachusetts and Rhode Island since mid-April.
'he rain fell a day after Furcola had designated yesterday as a
of prayer for rain."
'urcola asked the President to declare Massachusetts a major
er area so farmers would be entitled to get federal assistance.,

Of 'Improper Use' of Funds

Democratic senators proposed yes-
terday that the civil rights bill be
amended to guarantee jury trials
for all types of criminal contempt,
including labor cases.
' The broad new amendment was
offered by Sen. Joseph O'Mahoney,
(Wyo.), Sen. Estes Kefauver
(Tend.) and Sen. Frank Church
They were promptly congratu-
lated by Sen. Richard Russell (D-
Ga.) on their "attempt to preserve
the right of trial by jury."
Sen. Russell hadI served notice
earlier in the day that Southern
senators would filibuster unless the
civil rights bill is softened by a
jury trial amendment.
In effect, the new amendment
woul revise the general law gov-
erning contempt-of-court cases.
Sen. Kefauver described it as "a
great advance of civil liberties be-
great advance of civil liberties
because, as now presented, this
amendment does not apply to this
bill alone."
