Ruling Threatens
Legislators' Seats
Representatives with Conflicting
Public Jobs Have Checks Withheld
LANSING (A')-Possible effects of an attorney general's opinion
vacating a legislator's seat for holding two conflicting public jobs were
mushrooming yesterday,
It appeared that three or more house seats might be declared
illegally held when all facts wtre assembled and weighed.
Attorney General Paul L. Adams started it all when he held yester-
day that Rep. Raymond C. Wurzel (R-Port Huron) forfeited member-
ship in the Legislature when he accepted election to a local school
board last month.
Auditor General Frank S. Szymanski promptly indicated he would
drop Wurzel from the state payroll and asked Adams for a formal
Sopinion whether he should do so.

Top Red Spy
Con irmed

At the same time, Szymanski ad-
vised Adams that Rep. Allison
Green (R-Kingston), Republican
majority leader, appeared to fall
into the same category.
He said he planned to hold up
on Green's pay warrants pending
further advice. Green is a member
of the Tuscola County School
Board. He was last elected in 1957.
Status Under Scrutiny
Status of two other Republican
lawmakers, Rep. Arnell Engstrom
of Traverse City, House Ways and
Means chairman, and Rep. James
P. Mielock 'of Whittemore, has
come under scrutiny, he said.
Engstrom was re-elected to the
Traverse City School Board in
June, 1956, for a four year term,
he said, and Mielock advised that
while he had been a school board
member he was no longer serving
in that capacity.
Adams' Counsel Asked
Because Engstrom's most recent
election to the school board came
prior to his election to the Legis-
lature in November, 1956, it didn't
seem likely the Wurzel opinion
would affect his status, but Szy-
manski nevertheless asked Adams'
He said there was no plan to de-
lay Engstrom's checks.

Money Bill
Measure Exceeds
President's Request
ate zipped to passage yesterday a
$2,475,000,000 omnibus housing
bill going far beyond President
Dwight D. Eisenhower's recom-
With the way for quick passage
cleared by Senate Majority Leader
Lyndon B. Johnson (D-Tex.), the
Senate adopted several amend-
ments by voice vote without even
having them read or explained.
The senators present shouted
approval of the measure and sent
it to the House.
The bill contains new provisions
or authorizations for FHA mort-
gage insurance programs, for ur-
ban renewal or slum clearance
projects, for low-rent public hous-
ing, for the mortgage insurance
program for elderly persons, for
the FHA rental housing program,
and for the college housing pro-
It also would provide a new
program of government loans for
college classrooms and labora-
The principal new money auth-
orizations in the bill are:
One billion, 800 million dollars
in federal grants for urban re-
newal over a six-year period, com-
pared with $1,300,000,000 asked
by President Eisenhower.
Four hundred million for college
dormitory loans, as against 200
million asked by the President.
One hundred-fifty million for
direct loans to veterans. The Ad-
ministration asked nothing for
this purpose.
One hundred twenty-five mil-
lion for college classroom and lab-
oratory loans. This was cut down
from 250 million in the original
bill. There was no request from
the President for these funds.







.. loses appeal
NEW YORK (W)-The conviction
and 30-year prison sentence of
Russian master -spy Rudolph I.
Abel was upheld yesterday by the
United $tates Court of Appeals.
The 55-year-old Abel, highest-
ranking Russian espionage agent
ever caught in this country, claim-
ed in his appeal that the govern-
ment had illegally obtained evi-
dence against him and that there
were errors in his trial. The ap-
peals court unanimously rejected
the claims.
He was convicted ins Brooklyn
United States District Court last
Oct. 25.
During the trial he was depicted
by the prosecution as a boss of
Red spy ring operations in this
country for nearly nine years after
illegal entry in 1948.
Red Flagpole

Brussels Fair
BRUSSELS, Belgium (A) - Two
American soldiers who got too
gay and. tried to, shinny up the
flagpoles at the Soviet pavilion
of the Brussels fair have been
sent back to their units in West
Germany for disciplinary action.
The Soviet Embassy's press at-
tache said the two men tore down
a Belgian flag, tried to rip down
the Soviet flag and attempted to
pass themselves off as Soviet citi-
zens when they were caught after
a chase,
'Another Trick'
In Moscow, the Soviet press
was professing a grave view of the
incident as "another provocation
trick of American military men."
But a spokesman at the Ameri-
can pavilion gave this account:
"Both of them had been spend-
ing the night in the Belgique Joy-
euse (Gay Belgium) section and
had left it, in gay condition, about
5 a.m. Wednesday.
To Be Punished
"The idea of climbing the So-
viet flagpoles which are in front
of the Soviet pavilion caught
their fancy, but before they had
even reached the half-way mark,'
Soviet pavilion guards apprehend-
edthem." He denied there had
} been any wild chase,
The spokesman sagi Belgian po-
lice had filed no charges but "this
does not mean of course, that they
will not be disciplined when they

Dwight D. Eisenhower, returning
from a top-level parley in Canada,
saw United States-Canadian soli-,
darity in action yesterday when he'
inspected the huge St. Lawrence
Seaway and its power project.
The project is a joint, billion-j
dollar venture of the two nations,
and the President spent two hours
looking over the massive array of
dams, canals and giant genera-
tors. He brimmed with questions
and interest.
"I didn't realize the extent of
this project" he said, as he stood
on the vast dam linking the two
countries, and gazed out over the

Neagy Uproar
Called Coverup
By Khrushchev
BERLIN (M'-Nikita Khrushchev
charged yesterday that the West-
ern uproar over the execution of
the Hungarian freedomleaders
was a coverup for a ,plot to inter-
vene in Lebanon.
In a belligerent speech before
the East German Communist con-
gress, the Soviet party boss also
accused the Westof trying to tor-
pedo any summit conference
through stalling tactics.
In addition, he said the Western
powerswere using Yugoslavia as
a Trojan horse to shatter the So-
viet bloc.

Reds Say 'Scientist,' Mean 'Scholar'


MOSCOW (P)-Russian students
may not be concentrating so much
on science as the rest of the world
believes, Indiana University Presi-
dent Herman B. Wells said yester-
Wells, a member of an American
educators' delegation winding up
a tour of Soviet schools, pointed
out that the Russians use the term
"scientist" to mean the same as
Even historians and economists
in the Soviet Union are referred

to as scientists, Wells said, thus
giving the outside world the im-
pression they are all working in
the physical sciences - such as
mathematics, chemistry, engineer-
ing of physics.
The IU chief said one-third of
the members of the Russian acad-
emy of Science are specialists in
fields other than the natural and
physical sciences.
Wells added he was much im-
pressed by the "tremendous cul-

Aa Takes Fifth;
Accardo eS1
Faces Contempt Charge
WASHINGTON (A') - Contempt of Congress proceedings were
begun yesterday against Tony Accardo, reputed boss of Chicago's
Accardo was accused of abusing his Fifth Amendment guarantee
aginst self-incrimination.
Sen. John L. McClellan (D-Ark), chairman of the Senate
Rackets Committee, said it is time for the courts to rule on whether
the Fifth Amendment can be used as a device simply to refuse to give
information that could not possibly be incriminating.
Refuses 150 Times
The poker-faced Accardo refused to answer about 150 questions
put by the committee. Most of them concerned violent crime in



tural activity" he found in Soviet
schools. He said the Russians are
placing great emphasis on music,
drama and ballet from the ele-
mentary grades upward.
Likes Some Aspects
The head of the 10-member
American delegation, University of
Pittsburgh Chancellor Edward H.
Litchfield, commented that the
United States might benefit from
some Russian education practices
-such as high salaries for pro-
fessors and permitting about 800,-
000 workers to take two months
off every year to further their edu-
However, Dr. Litchfield found
less attractive the Soviet practice
of over-specializing in the schools.
He said if a Russian student wants
to become a chemist, he studies
very little outside his own field.
Completes Tour
The American delegation, made
up largely of college presidents,
arrived in Moscow June 27 and left
yesterday after a tour of univer-
sities and institutes here, in Lenin-
grad, Tbilisi, Tashkent, Samar-
kand and Alma Ata.
Since the visit was part of a
United States-Soviet cultural ex-
change, a matching Russian dele-
gation presumably will visit the
United States this fall.

U.S. Destroys
In Test Flight,
A Bomarc interceptor missile was
launched with a mighty roar yes-
terday - but -it was deliberately
blown apart high in the sky sec-
onds later when trouble developed.
The Air Force announced that,
"The missile was destroyed by the
range safety officer in order to
disperse the remaining fuel after
an apparent engine failure."
Debris rained over the ocean
some 20 miles from the launching
Deliberate destruction of a Bo-
marc was very unusual because
the missile is in an advanced stage'
of development! More than 40 Bo-
marcs have been fired since the
test series started in 1952.

te Department summoned Soviet
Ambassador Mikhail Menshikov to
hear this double-barreled protest
over Communist treatment of
American fliers.
A formal note handed to Men-
shikov and then made public said
the Soviet populace "brutally mis-
treated" American airmen forced
to land inside Soviet Armenia.
Attacked by MIGs
"The United States government
expects that those guilty of the
attack on the plane will be pun-
ished in a degree commensurate
with their offense," the note said.

unarmed DC6-type transport re-

Soviet jet MIG fighters June 27.

Cuba Rebels'
Free One,
Retain 29.
Cuban rebels released their last
civilian hostage yesterday, but held
on to 29 kidnaped United States
sailors and Marines from the
Guantanamo naval base.
Richard A. Sargent of Toronto,
manager of a sugar mill, was land-
ed in Guantanamo by helicopter.
He was abducted June 26. Nine-
teen other civilians from the Unit-
ed States and Canada were freed
Irritation Grows
There was growing concern and
irritation in United States circles
about the rebel delay in freeing
the servicemen. Only one of the 30
seized last month-Airman Thom-
as R. Mosness of Ames, Iowa-has
been returned, and no more heli-
copter flights into the rebel-held
mountains of eastern Cuba were
scheduled yesterday.
Quartet Members
Adm. Jerauld Wright, Atlantic
Fleet commander who flew to
Guantanamo from Norfolk, Va.,
said it is an exasperating situa-
tion to deal with the rebels. He
made that reply when asked how
long it might be before the service-
men are released.

Citation Drawn
Asserting that Accardo was try-
ing to make a mockery of his con-
stitutional privileges, McClellan
ordered the committee staff to
draw up a contempt citation.
This must be approved by the
committee and then by a majority
of the full Senate before being
referred to the Justice Department
for possible prosecution.
McClellan said he hoped the
courts would be conscious of an
obligation to society as a whole

maximum punishment for con-
tempt is a year in prison and a

McClellan indicated be would go

Senate Passes
Ethics Code
WASHINGTON (A')-The Senate,
in a sudden burst of action yester-
day, gave voice vote passage to a
year-old House resolution recom-
mending a "code of ethics" cover-
ing all government employes.
The resolution, which the House
passed Aug. 28, 1957, at the in-
stance of Rep. Charles E. Bennett
(D-Fla.), suggests adherence to a
code requiring, among other
things, a refusal of gifts which
might be construed "by reasonable
persons as influencing the per-
formance" of official duties.
The Senate Civil Service Com-
mittee, which approved the reso-
lution only Thursday, had not
submitted the customary written
report to the Senate when Sen.
