San Angelo Bans
SAN ANGELO—Effective immediately all air condition-
ers using water, either through a cooling tower or by re-
turnable pumps, in San Angelo are illegal.
The city commission Monday
night passed an emergency amend-
ment to the water restriction or-
dinance prohibiting the use of air
conditioners. The decision was tak-
en to coicide with the filing of a
temporary restraining order ban-
ning irrigation on Spring Creek,
Dove Creek and South Concho.
Commissioners declared San An-
gelo is in a stale of emergency and
that the flow on the streams out-
lined is the only available supply.
The commission is basing its suit
an the theory that the city is a
riparian owner, entitled to suffi-
cient water for domestic use, tak-
ing precedence over Irrigation.
Decision to enjoin farmers on the
rivers was made after Water Supt.
J. E. Williams warned that the
city's water supply at Lake Nas-
worthy is dangerous low. He
would not give details but said

to let San Angelo have 1,016,000
gallons of water daily, if a way can
be found to transport it there.
Mayor A. D. Rust expressed ap-
jreciation of the offer and said
that the water is needed but the

Dwight D. Eisenhower came face

William E. Jenner is a ticket-mate
in the November election.
Eisenhower's visit to Indianapolis
included a talk before the 75th an-

UN Air Assaults
Move With Power
SEOUL, Korea, Sept. 9—UP—
United Nations jet planes destroyed
or damaged 19 Communist MIG-15
fighters Tuesday when 150 of the
Russian-built jets tried in vain to
stop an Allied air assault on a
North Korean military academy.
Allied F-86 Sabrejets knocked
down seven MIGs and damaged
11 more, while an F-84 Thunder-
jet fighter-bomber accounted for a
12th damage claim.
The Sabre-MIG duels came while
Thunderjets from two fighter-
bomber wings roared over the mil-
itary academy at Sakchu deep in
northwest Korea, only 39 miles
from the Chinese Communist base
at Antung, Manchuria.
Tuesday's claim of 19 MIGs gave
Allied pilots their best day of M1G-
hunting in September and brought
the enemy jet toll for the month to
29 destroyed, one probably destroy-
ed and 29 damaged.
As soon as the Allied fighter-
bombers began dropping high ex-
plosives on the military school,
the MIGs flew across the Yalu riv-
er from their base at Antung. Im-
mediately they ran into a ring of
Sabrejets screening the slower

Other UN warplanes hurled

gasoline on Chinese Communists
holding Capitol hill in an attempt
to soften them up lor a counter-at-
tack by South Korean soldiers.
Shooting Stars, Mustangs and F-

arily in possession of the bloody

CAIRO, Sept. 9—UP—Premier
Gen Mohammed Naguib's new
cabinet Tuesday dissolved all po-

lords to surrender all their land in
excess of 200 acres for redistribu-
tion to landless peasants.
The two historical decrees at one
stroke altered the whole basis of
Egypt's political and economic life.
They were designed to wipe out po-
litical corruption and end the feu-
dal economic system that has kept
millions of Egyptians in virtual
serfdom for centuries.
Naguib described the land re-
form law as "the first step toward
rebuilding Egypt's economic and
