President Pleased
President Dwight D. Eisenhower
was given word of the Skate's feat
while riding in his plane over
Philadelphia en route to New York
for his speech before the United
Nations General Assembly.' V
Press Secretary James Hagerty
said Eisenhower was very pleased
with the news, even though he had
been expecting it momentarily.
Commander Holds Medals

mand of Cmdr. James Francis

British Fete'
Honors Men
Of Nautilus8.
PORTLAND, England (A')-The
USS Nautilus sailed into port in
bright sunshine yesterday from her'
dank prowling under North Pole
ice and her crew ptoudly received
a Presidential Unit Citation for
the epic adventure.
Bands played "The Stars and
Stripes Forever," bagpipes skirled,
boatsawhistled and a crowd of
spectators and men and officers of
the British and American navies
cheered as the atomic submarine's
crew reached land for the first
time in 19 days.
Fluttering at the masthead was
a flag newly designed for the occa-
sion -- a blue flag bearing the
words: "Submerged Polar Transit,
Nautilus, 1958."
On deck was Cmdr. William R.
Anderson, the Skipper, who hadc
flown by helicopter to rejoin his
crew after being whisked to Wash-
ington to receive the Legion of
Merit from President Dwight D.
In full uniform, he escorted
United States Ambassador John
Hay Whitney aboard. The ambas-
sador read the presidential cita-
tion and conferred the emblem.
Ori her 8,147-mile voyage from
Pearl Harbor, the Nautilus came
out from under the ice cap only
10 miles from the spot reckoned
by its navigators.

Union Local
Paid Wages
To Convicts
probers were told yesterday the
Teamsters Union paid $114,719.32
in salaries to four members of a
Pontiac, Mich., local while they
were in prison.
Robert F. Kennedy, counsel to
the Senate Rackets Investigating
Committee, also produced evidence
from Union files to show that pen-
sion fund contributions of the four
were kept up.
Asks Explanation
Kennedy asked James R. Hoff a,
international president of the
Teamsters, what possible reason
the union could have for paying
out money to men who had been
convicted, as he put it, of be-
traying their trust.
"Were you afraid they'd expose
you?" Kennedy demanded to know.
"I was not afraid they could
expose me," Hoffa replied. "I had
nothing to expose."
The prisoners were -identified as
Dan Keating, former president of
Pontiac Local No. 614, and Lois
Linteau LMichael Nicoletti and
Sam Marrosso. It was not brought
out why they went to jail.
Makes Angry Denial
Hoffa denied angrily that he
had shared in shakedown payoffs
to Keating and other members of
the local.
Carmine Bellino, a committee
investigator-accountant, testified
$20,000 in union funds was spent
for the defense of Linteau, Nico-
letti and Keating.
Spent on Legal Fees
He said $625,00 was spent for
legal fees between 1953 and 1959
by the Teamsters Central States
Conference and several locals.
Bellino added that a substantial
portion of it went to defend Team-
sters in criminal cases.
Meanwhile, in San Francisco,
the trucking industry accused
Hoffa of scuttling a contract
agreement, with a resulting shut-
down of trucking operations in 11
Western states. .
Operations Suspended
Major interstate motor carriers
in the West were suspending oper-
ations and laying off personnel. A
spokesman for the California
Trucking Assn. announced that
letters detailing the alleged Hoffa
interventibn were being mailed to
some 50,000 shipper customers in
the area.
The carrier blockade began with
Teamsters striking trucking com-
panies in California's San Joaquin
Valley Monday.
Sixteen transcontinental com-
panies as well as interstate opera-
tors then closed down under the
employer principle that a strike
against one is a strike against all.
Einar Mohn, president of the
Western Co┬▒ference of Teamsters,
said the union would file a one-
million-dollar-a-day damage suit
in federal court against employer

Marine Unit Pulled Out of Lebanon

BEIRUT, Lebanon (R) - About!
1,700 United States Marines will
leave Lebanon today a few hours
before the United Nations General
Assembly opens debate on the
Middle East.
While the departure of the
Marine unit underlined the relax-
ing atmosphere in Lebanon, the
situation in neighboring Jordan
showed no signs of easing.
Hussein Threatened.
Authoritative sources in London
said official warnings had been
received that an army uprising
against Jordan's King Hussein was
One informant said three at-
tempts had been made to kill the
King since British troops landed
July 17 to protect him from a
pro-Nasser uprising.
The first American dependents
pulled out of Jordan in response
to suggestions from the United
States Embassy in Jordan. They
were the wife and son of an Em-
bassy official.
Token of Promise
Adm. James L. Holloway, com-,
mander of 15,000 American troops
here, announced the withdrawal.
He said it was a token of President
Dwight D. Eisenhower's promise to
pull them out as soon as the gov-
ernment of Lebanon felt they were
no longer needed to protect this
nation's independence.
To Blunt Charges
The gesture was meant to blunt
Soviet charges in UN debate, of
American and British aggression
in Lebanon and Jordan.
Leathernecks of the second Bat-
talion, Second Division-the unit
ordered to leave-began hauling
their heavy gear to the evacuation
beach soon after Holloway's an-
Saeb Salam, the Beirut rebel
chief, said "this symbolic step"
was welcome but "does not fully
accomplish the desired aim of the
Lebanese people for complete
withdrawal" of all troops.
Racial Issue
Marks Voting"
By The Associated Press
A contest between two Negroes
for a Democratic congressional
nomination held the political spot-
light yesterday as three states
conducted primary elections.
Voters in New York's predomi-
nantly Negro and Democratic 16th
District chose between Adam Clay-
ton Powell and Earl Brown who
waged their fight almost entirely
on racial issues.
Observers said their contest
could provide a gauge of Negro
feelings on civil rights.
Powell, 49 years old, who has
served seven terms in Congress,
is an impassioned champion of
immediate racial integration.
Brown. 55 years old, a city council-
man and an editor of Life maga-
zine, takes a calmer approach
while working for civil rights.

UNEASY THRONE-British and Jordanian army officers back up
seated King Hussein as he views a day-long demonstration of
Army loyalty at Zerka, Jordan, over the weekend. Ironically,
rumors are now thick in Jordan that there is an army conspiracy
to overthrow the young king.

U.S. Readies
Moon Rocket
WASHINGTON (M)-Man's first
moon rocket may be launched from
Cape Canaveral, Fla., next week-
end, but none of the men in charge
would say so for publication. -
The Defense Department, seek-
ing to avoid an advance buildup
of interest, is keeping its moon-
shot schedule details secret.
Best Times Set
However, the department's Ad-
vanced Research Projects Agency
in charge of the five lunar probes
already authorized, has said that
the best times for a launching this
month would be either next Sun-
day, Monday or Tuesday.
Thereafter 28 days would have
to elapse before there would be
another period when the orbital
patterns to the earth and the moon
are aligned to provide the best
chances for success.
No Long Delays
For that reason, if the Air Force
--assigned to make the first three
shots at the moon - is unable for
some reason to launch on the first
three days of next week, it probab-
ly will not try again until Sept. 14i
to 16, and thereafter not until Oct.
12 to 14.
Furthermore there can be no
long holds or delays in the prelim-
inary countdown as have been
common with the Army and Navy}
satellite launching vehicles and
with the big ballistic missiles now
under test.
