Springs during the month
This represents a $46,215 in-
crease over the dollar value of
construction in June, which
reached $36,700. It also towers
well over the estimated value of
construction undertaken in July,
1956, which was $55,650.
Nineteen building permits were
issued by Curtis Morris, city
building inspector, during the
month. These included five new
homes which are being construct-
ed, several additions to present
dwellings, and repairs and re-
modeling of businesses.

Senate Passes Jury Rider;
President Blasts Action
Rule by Batista
move by President Batista to com-
bat rebellion. Constitutional guar-
antees werj suspended for 45
days. Censorship was clamped on
local and Incoming foreign news-
papers and radio stations and on
outgoing news dispatches.
The censors specifically banned
publication or transmission of
news implying support for the
rebel led by Fidel Castro. Also
banned was news on work stop-
pages promoted by labor unions
In declaring what amounted to
martial rule in the island, the
Batista government also sent the
army to take control of Santiago,
the pro-rebel city in eastern Cuba.
A general etrike had been call-
ed' in Santiago to protest police
action in dispersing an anti-Batis-
ta demonstration on Wednesday.
Tha new U. S. Ambassador to
Cuba — Earl Smith — was in the
city at the time and hie comments
on the demonstration and situa-
• tion in Cuba brought a fusillade
Washington, Aug. 2 Wt—The
Senate has tacked a juiy trial j
amendment to the civil rights bill, j
The provision would require jury |
trial in criminal contempt cases |
arising front the civil rights bill
and also in many other instances
—including labor case:.
The vote accepting the jury
trial provision was 51 lo 42.
The amendment was approved
at 12:14 a. m. Friday — after
hours of tense debate. The pro-
posal was jointly introduced by
three Democratic senators—Jo-
seph O’Mahoney of Wyoming,
Estes Kefauver of Tennessee and
Frank Chuich of Idaho.
Approval of the amendment is
a major defeat for President Ei-
senhower and forces hacking the
administration civil rights meas-
At his news conference Wed-
nesday, th • President emphasised
his opposition to tho. proposal.
And a leader in the fight for the
civil lights bill—California Re-
publican Senator William Know-
land—said the provision would be
a fatal blow to the civil rights bill.
A big factor in the success of
the jury tna1 proposal was the
adept generalship of Majority
Leader Lyndon Johnson of Texas.
Southerners were juliliant over
the Senate vote hut Vice Presi-
dent Nixon had this comment -
"This was one of the saddest
days in the history of the Senate
because this was a vote against
the right tojj^te.”
Senator Rich a r d Russell of
Georgia, the leader of the south-
ern forces,, had warned in advance
that they would use eytiy means
to their command to try to beat
the civil rights hill if thf- jury trial
amendment was rejected.
In his final fervent pica . against
the amendment, Senatoi Know-
land of California, said that if
the bill, “was emasculated by the
umendment,” it would be sent to
n conference with the House. And
Knowland said the bill would not
be likely to emerge at this session
and perhaps not at the next.
