senators will use "every weapon

His unmistakable notice of a fili
busteralthough he didn't use the
word was sounded after Presi
dent Eisenhower sent word to Re
publican senators he opposes this
or any other major change in the
bill s section on voting rights.
The administration measure al
ready has been stripped by a
52-38 Senate vote of a section to
empower the attorney general to
seek federal court injunctions to
enforce civil rights other than
voting privileges
The big issue now, as the Sen
ate nears the end of a third week
of debate on the House-passed
bill, is whether to require jury

Harry Holt Attacks
Murder Indictment
Against Mrs. Ott
The second-degree murder indict
ment against EdUh Ott for the
death of a Korean orphan was at
tacked Thursday by Harry Holt,
Creswell, who operates the "baby
lift" that placed the child in her
home.
In a letter from Korea to the
Portland Oregonian, Holt said the
action against Mrs. Ott was an
"unjust and malicious attack" aim
ed at him and his work in bring
ing more than 200 Korean waifs to
America.
Mrs. Ott was indicted for the
murder of Wendy Kay Ott, 22
months, Tuesday, one day after
Circuit Judge Charles S. Woodrich
cleared her of charges of "cruelty"
to other children in a dependency
hearing in Roseburg. The depend
ency hearing was brought by a pe
tition from Dist. Atty. Avery W.
Thompson, who sought to have
three children removed from the
Ott home.
Welfare agencies "have always
bitterly opposed our work with Ko
rean orphans, and we have known
that they would attack us at the
first opportunity," the Creswell
farmer wrote to the Oregonian.
Andrew F. Juras, assistant ad
ministrator of Oregon state wel
fare said, "Mr. Holt is assuming
the responsibility in placing these
cnuctren. Juras continued, "He
j feels that he is doing good work
and we have no questions about
nis intentions
Mrs. Ott is charged with causing
the death of the tot. Wendv. bv a
blow on the head on June 14. The
child's death was attributed in an
autopsy report to suffocation
brought about by vomiting.
Mrs. Ott is free on $5,000 bail.
Her attorney, Robert G. Davis, se
cured a delay until next Tues
day to file a motion.
Thompson commented that "ap

ROSEBURG, OREGON FRIDAY, JULY
Defeat Of Bill
To Aid Schools
Disappoints Ike
WASHINGTON I - The White
House said Friday President Ei
senhower is greatly disappointed
that the House failed to pass a
school aid bill.
The President's views were
given to newsmen by associate
press secretary Anne Wheaton less
than 24 hours after the House
killed a I'm billion dollar school
aid bill about which Eisenhower
himself had expressed some mis
givings. When i reporter told Mrs.
Wheaton Eisenhower has been
sharply criticized on the ground
he failed to give strong support
to the legislation, she said:
"The President has expressed
great disappointment that the
House did not see its way clear
to pass a measure to meet this
critical shortage of schools."
Mrs. Wheaton did not say wheth
er Eisenhower had expressed his
displeasure to Republican leaders
of Congress, but she said "1 as
sume that perhaps there was dis
cussion along that line" in the
President's breakfast conversation
with Sen. Knowland, Senate Re
publican leader.
Eisenhower had said before
Thursday's vote that he was not
fully satisfied with the compro
mise school aid bill, but would
accent it. The measure, defeated
b' a five-vote margin, differed in
several major respects from an ad
ministration bill which would have
provided $1,200,000,000 in school
construction aid to the states.
Earlier. Rep. Kellcy (D-Pa)
author of the school aid bill, had
blamed the President tor Us do
feat.
Air Force Requests
Funds ForVanport
Rocket Storing
PORTLAND im The Air Force
has asked Congress for $370,000
to construct rocket-storing facili
ties at Vanport.
The rockets will be used by the
fighter-interceptor squadron sta
tioned at Portland International
Airport. Jet fighters from 11c-
Churd Air Force Base near Ta
conia and planes from a National
Guard squadron also may use the
ammunition.
The International Airport-based
squadron now uses rockets stored
in earlh-protected bunkers at the
airport.
The Air Force plan is opposed
by four members of the Oregon
congressional delegation and the
Portland City Council.
Three Democrats Senators
Morse and Neuberger and Rep.
Green have announced their
opposition to the move, as has
Republican Kep. Norblad.
Morse said it was "inconceiv
able that such an installation
would de placed in an area that
is directly adjacent to the heart
of a great city."
The Portland-based Air Force
squadron and the National Guard
group use 2.75-inch rockets which
are 4 feet long and weigh about
7 pounds.

Future Crippled Children's
Hospital To Be Dedicated
Saturday At Boswell Springs
Dedication of the future home of
the Southern Oregon Hospital for
Crippled Children will take place
Saturday at the site on Boswell
springs between Drain and Yoncal
la. The ceremonies will get under
way at 1 p.m. with many state
and Douglas County dignitaries on
hand to take part. Making the prin
cipal address will be State Sen
Dan Dimick of Roseburg who will
be a representative of Gov. Robert
Holmes.
The dedication is the culmination
of over six months' efforts origi
nated by a group of Drain and
Roseburg businessmen and philan
thropists who undertook the pro
ject late last year. They directed
their efforts at revitalizing the na
tural resources and the extensive
building development already sit
uated at the site.
Work Toward Purchase
An option on the purchase of the
site was obtained, and since that
time effort has been directed at
outright purchase since the official
sanction of the board of directors
was obtained. Approval for the
hospital was given by a Portland
architectural tirm recently.
Location of the proposed hospital
is some two miles south of Drain on
a 22-acre site on both sides of old
Highway 99. The main building
which could be used to house some
50 patients, is located on the west
side of the highway. Mineral wa
ter runs from the springs on the
not.
Future plans call for expansion
of the present facilities and audi
tions to house as many as 200 pa
tients as funds become available.
Efforts of raising money are being
made through sale of life memner
shio cards for $100 apiece and ac
tive yearly membership cards for
$5 apiece. Already si.uuu nas neen

raising campaign since the an
