Navy Hires Own Workers
To Replace Warehousemen
OAKLAND, Calif. ifi The
naval supply center here said Fri
day it has hired enough civil serv
ice longshoremen to replace In
ternational Longshoremen and
Warehousemen's Union members
who have refused to submit to

commander of the center, said
that by late Thursday 175 appli

Speaker Rayburn
Calls For House
To Accept Bill
Speaker Rayburn of Texas called
Friday for acceptance of
the Senate civil rights bill. He
said, however, that he would be
agreeable "if necessary to a
compromise narrowing the con
troversial jury trial provision.
At the same time, House Re
publican leader Martin of Massa
chusetts again demanded defeat
of the Senate jury trial bill. Mar
tin made public a letter from Dep
uty Atty. Gen. William P. Rogers
asserting it would cut in on the
authority of all federal courts.
Backstage House moves, mean
time, were directed at a compro
mise solution which would limit
jury trials only to criminal con
tempt cases involving voting
rights. Rayburn's stated willing
ness to accept that solution
strengthened its prospects.
Hardly had Rayburn made his
position known than Martin de
clared the Senate bill "would de
feat the purpose of the President
to assure the voting rights of all
Rayburn said the fate of the bill
in the House rests largely with the
Senate Passes
Thursday passed an J884,151,323
public works appropriations bill.
The vote was 85-1.
The bill carries money to fi
nance construction of Army Engi
neer and Reclamation Bureau
water projects for the year start
ed July 1.
The measure is the first to pass
either the House or Senate this
vear carrying a larger appropria
tion than President Eisenhower
had budgeted.
Eisenhower had recommended
$8(7,453,000 for public works. The
House trimmed the amount to
The Senate Appropriations Com
mittee hiked the total some $69,
338.000 and the Senate went along
with its committee.
The bill now will go to a Senate
House conference committee.

ion officials said.
The union, headed by Harry
Bridges, has objected to the
Navy's security screening process
which requires men to undergo
close questioning about affiliations
with organizations designated as
subversive by the U.S. attorney
general and to declare their race.
The Navy said it decided to
screen its own employes after the
U. S. Coast Guard, previously
charged with the task, was halt
ed by a court order on the basis
of ILWU complaints that the
screening program was carried
out in an unconstitutional man
ner. The Navy claims it is in a dif
ferent position than the Coast
Guard, which was charged with
the task of screening for other
services. A naval spokesman said
the Navy may set up its own re
quirements for hiring employees
and an appeal by anyone turned
down, he claimed, could be made
only to superior Navy officers.

Judge Woodrich
Commits Youth To
MacLaren School
A youth who was arrested Tues
day after a struggle with police
officers had his probation as a ju
venile delinquent revoked today by
Judge Charles S. Woodrich in Cir
cuit Court.
The boy, David Victor Flury, 17,
had been fined $30 on three charg
es, with the fines suspended, and
was serving a five-day sentence
for disorderly conduct after a mu
nicipal court hearing.
At the completion of his sentence
here, he will be sent to the state
MacLaren School for Boys at
Woodburn. He will be kept there
until he can be paroled, but could
remain until he n 21 years old.
Flury was placed on probation
as a delinquent child on April 27,
1957. His arrest constituted a vio
lation of probation. However
Judge Woodrich told the boy that
in this case he would have dealt
the same with him even if he had
not been on probation.
City police officers at the hear
ing testified that they had to hand
cuff Hury when he was arrested
about 12:30 a.m. on Aug. 6 at the
Greyhound depot. They testified
that he struggled, kicked them, and
cursed them when he was hand
cuffed. Three other youths threat
ened to attack the officers at the

was sentenced to five days in jail
for disorderly conduct. I he reck
less driving charge was dismiss
ed, and he received suspended
fines on the other charges. His
driver's license was suspended for
60 days.
The only thing Flury had to say
in his behalf was that the hand
cuffs had been placed on him too
tightly and had made marks on
his wrists before he started to
struggle. He held up his arms in
court and the marks were visible.
The judge reminded the boy that
the place to disagree with police
'was in a court of law, "not in an

Two Sentenced
On Spy Charges;
Third Waiting
NEW YORK I Jacob Albam,
64, a former Brooklyn tea and
spice dealer, and Mrs. Myra
Soble, 52, were sentenced to 5'A
years in prison each Friday for
spying lor tne soviet union.
Her husband, Jack, 54, a third
member of the espionage ring,
was to be sentenced Sept. 18. He
was not in court.
All three had pleaded guilty.
Both Albam and Mrs. Soble ap
peared shocked when U. S. Dis
trict Judge Richard H. Levet pro
nounced the sentences.
Throughout the preliminaries,
the blonde Mrs. Soble wept
softly. Albam bespectacled and
balding, had stared nervously at
the floor, walls and the ceiling.
The reason for not sentencing
Soble immediately was not dis
closed. The Soblei and Albam all came
to the United States as European
The three defendants were
charged specifically with conspir
ing with "numerous high ranking
Soviet officials" to obtain docu
ments, photographs and writings
vital to the defense of the United
States, knowing thsy were to be
transmitted to the Soviet Union.
Albam and the Sobles were ar
rested last Jan. 25 in their Man
hattan apartments by FBI men.
Authorities have said the case
of Albam and the Sobles had no
connection with the Soviet espion
age ring headed by Rudolf Abel,
Soviet colonel of intelligence ar
raigned here Friday on spy
Details of the Albam-Soble ac
tivities never have been revealed
in detail. They allegedly were en
meshed in a web of Soviet in
trigue and espionage that extend
ed from New York to Paris, Ge
neva, Laussane, Vienna and Mos
cow. Sources close to the defendants
indicated they were entrapped in
the ring despite a wish to with
draw. The Sobles' son hinted that his
grandparents overseas were, in
effect, hostages.
Rancher Wins
Partial Victory
neer rancher John Pratbcr has re
ceived from a federal court the
right to live out his life on a 15
acre track from which the Army
sought to evict him.
Prather isn't happy about his
partial victory over the Army. He
wants all of his 27.000-acre ranch
now part of a missile range and
he wants title to it.
"1 have not gone back on my
promise to keep this ranch for my
children," the 82-year-old rancher
said. "I want this land for them
when I die. I shall continue my
fight to keep it from military pos
session." Asst. U.S. Atty. Joseph R. Mc
Neany said Prather still does not
have title even to the IS acres
adjoining a missile range. It would
be possible for the military to
seek another eviction proceeding
through the courts but the Army
has conceded it won't. Instead, it
will harness its missiles so Prath
er won't be endangered.
