There was more to their clamoring for deck passage than showed on the "surface. This year of 1862 was a crucial one in the great war. Despite tho virtual isolation of Arizona, the territory was rocking beneath repercussions of baffling politics and roaring artillery. _ Irving Crotch had come around the Horn in '49, following the brawling gold years with an absorbing interest until the West was in his blood. The lower Colorado basin occupied every mpjor interest in his existence. Even now the precious metal cast its gleam through these turbulent days..

The local delegation were: Hope: Mayor John L.

INashville: Frank Elder, president of Nashville Chamber of Commerce. Washington: Thurston Hulsey, A. M. Hulsey and Gip Martin. Ozan: J. O. Baber, B. M. Stuart and Thurston D. Jones. The hearing was conducted before Examiner R. H. May. Appearing for Missouri Pacific Transportation Co. were: John F. Rea, supervisor for the Little Rock District, comprising Arkansas; &&d W. J. Smith, company counsel, of Little Rock. Bus Spokesman Mr. Rea was on the stand in your area in the future." Mr. Rea got off the stand after an hour and a half. For Hope C. of C. The first witness for the objecting towns was Harrell Hall, direC' tor .of Hope Chamber, who filed with the examiner a number of statements and other exhibits supporting the case for retention of present bus service. Under' examination by Attorney Feild, Mr. Hall said: "Our area feels that the present Nashville-Hope bus service is the only link between the bus lines running from Hot Springs through Nashville to DeQueen and beyond, and the line through Hope from Little Rock to Texarkana. "The' Hope-Nashville run ought to be a good feeder line, but it misses connections, sometimes by_ only 5 minutes, because of bad scheduling, indicating poor planning. For instance: "South Texas points are not advised of this run, and so these points route passengers for Nashville by way of Texarkana and DeQueen — the long way around. Our investigation in this matter disclosed the fact that the agent at Texarkana is regularly correcting these tickets and issuing new ones to reroute passengers to Hope, and to Nashville from here. "We feel if the company would publicize the Hope-Nashville Schedule it would get better financial results and the security of our present bus service would be assur- run was too short to permit full ed.

Unlike EXPECTED PRECIPITATION I Precipitation during December Is expected to exceed normal ta 1 most of the nation except for southwest, northwest and w Yoshida, however, Hatoyama vors diplomatic relations and the first hour and a half of the hearing, questioned by Mr. Smith as to the profit-and-loss position of the Hope-Nashville bus operation; and cross-examined by Mr. Feild and Mr. Wilson on both this and the financial results of the entire Missouri Pacific bus system. Rea introduced exhibits snow Chat the Hope-Nashville operation averaged a loss in to bus the month of October 1954 of 12.17 per mile on 3,802 bus-miles — pointing to a potential loss on the whole year 1954 of $5,552.44. He said the utilization of a union driver's time. All drivers, guaranteed a he daily added, are minimum of 150 miles; the two roundtrips ptween Hope and Nashville figure •Shly 112 miles daily, and cross-eamined by Mr. Feild to whether the company had taken into account the "feeder" benefits of the local run in revenue to ' the main-line operation, Mr. Rea said it would be exceedingly difficult to ma-ke a breakdown of local and through tickets. The bus executive added: "Small bus offices sell only local tickets — no combination tickets. ailroad tickets are good on our usses, but our bub tickets aren't good on the railroad. It's a one-way ticket, where our concerned, you see . , Mr. Feild then said: business is "Mr. Examiner, I' ask that the company 1 be ordered to produce figures on such long-haul revenue as originates on the Hope-Nashville run. We are entitled to know whether 10, 20, or 30% of the persons boarding the Nashville-Hope bus are traveling ,'j|eyond this one short line." Mr. May, the examiner, hesitated; then he questioned both sides as to whether it was physically possible to get at this breakdown between short and long haul tickets from the company records. After discussion Mr. Smith, company counsel, finally stipulated that the company would report all ticket sales, local and through, as shown by the agents at Nashville, f ^zan and Washington. Attorney ield called for these figures for all of 1952 and 1953, and for 1954 through the month of October; and Mr. Smith agreed these would be furnished. System In Red Mr. Rea testified that a company report to the Interstate Commerce Commission showed the whole Missouri Pacific bus system to have sustained an operating losi of $263,878.02 the first nine months fff 1954; and added that this is the third consecutive loss year. Mr. Feild asked Mr. Rea how long the, Hope-Nashville bus run had operated, and the latter replied, "Since 1928." Examiner May intervened with a question: "Mr. Rea, do you think your proposed one-roundtrlp schedule on Saturdays pnly can be operated at a profit?" Mr. Rea; "No." w.,Attorney Wilson asked the bus Executive if he were familiar with the circumstances under which Missouri Pacific Railroad Co. was permitted to discontinue the Hope- Nashville passenger train; wthout objection several yars ago, and Would really know that we have a bus line running between Hope and Nashville." :i Attorney Feild: "Mr. Hall, since the whole bus system is losing money don't you think it unfair to single ,out .the. Hope.NashvJlle line for .curtailment?" Mr. Hall: "Yes. And particularly because-Hope raised no objection a few years ago when the railroad dropped its train to Nashville, leaving the implication that passenger service would continue to be served by the bus — although this event ' occurred some years before I became a resident of Hope." . Mr. Hall, answering a question by Attorney Feild as to how Hope Dusiness people learned of the plan to drop daily bus service, said: "Nobody told us. We just picked up a sidewalk rumor — and suddenly found out it was true and we got busy." At this point Company Counsel Smith got up and said: "I just want to say for the record, we had notices of the schedule change sent out to oui station agents with instructions that they post them at all offices It's up to the commission to send notices to public officials." fain- creased trade with Russia and Red China within a framework 'of friendship with the West.

The Public Ser vice Commission is not required to send out notices except where hearing has been set. At the time in question there had been no objection filed and no hearing asked for, and the requiremen was on the company alone to senc out notices to its agents and order them to post same at the ticke offices." There was confusion at thii point, as some of the company'; local agents were appearing a protestants from towns along thi line — and they told the examine in one case they got the notices am in another case they were givei) merely an oral message. Company Counsel Smith askei the agent who did receive a notici whether he had duly posted same.

HUGHES LITTLE RCC K (U F) State Welfare Commissioner A. J. Moss said today a proposed bill by Rep. Carroll Hollensworth of Bradley county would add 4,000 or 5.0CO persons to the relief rolls in Arkansas. Moss made the statement in his appearance before the State Legislative Council in behalf of his department's $11,000,000 budget re- cuest for' the next biennium. Hollensworth said yesterday he would introduce a bill to repeal a 1953 which requires financial* ly-able relatives to suppoit wel- lare i-ecipients and take them off the relief rolls. Hollenswork claim ed that the present measure works hardship on many old people in "destitute" conditions. Been Boyle's it Children Are t Than Adults Rosebud O'Hare."

Cotton Quotas Decided by Farm Vote • The national referendum on' up- J^ 1 land cotton marketing quotas, to tu ^ ibe held December 14, will be the ninth vote of its kind, Garland Kidd, Chairman of the Hempstead County Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation Committee, said today. The first vote on cotton marketing quotas was held in March 1938, and the last previous cotton referendum was in December 1953. . In the last vote, 94 per cent of the far- jners voting expressed approval of sing .the quotas for the 1954' on. crop.' At least two-thirds of the armers voting .must favor quotas tefore they may continue in effect. Under legislative provisions, the Secretary of Agriculture must pro- laim — not later than October 15 — a national marketing quota and national acreage allotment for ipland cotton whenever he finds hat the total supply exceeds the ormal supply. At the time the Secretary issued he proclamation for the 1955 crop, he total supply of upland cotton for he 1954-55 marketing year was es- imated at 21.5 million running bales, which included on August 1954 carryover of 9.0 million bales, 1954 production of 12.3 mil- ion bales (the October Crop Re)ort) and estimated imports of "0,000 bales. The "Normal supply" igure of 17.7 million bales included estimated domestic consumption of 9.1 million bales and exports of 4,5 million bales, plus a 30 percent "carryover" reserve of 4.1 million bales. Thus the prospective ;otal supply for 1954-55 exceeded ;he normal supply by more than 3.8 million bales. The November Crop Report increased the total supply by 716,000 ">ales. The total supply is so large hat the Secretary of Agriculture was required by law to establish ;he national marketing quota at the minimum of 10 million bales. The Agricultural Act of 1954 provided for a "set aside" of 3 to 4 million bales of cotton. This set- aside is included in the total sup- i ply in determining acreage allotments and marketing quotas. When the level of price support is determined, however, the set-aside is not considered in the total supply. Marketing quotas operate through acreage allotments. Grower who exceeds the cotton acreage allotment for his farm, under a cotton marketing quota program, will be subject to a marketing quota penalty of 50 per cent of parity on the farm's excess production. Growers who do not exceed their cotton allotments may market free of penalties all the 1955 cotton production from their farms. McCarthy Hurls Sharp Criticism at Eisenhower WASHINGTON' WlSen Me Carthy cut loose with, a slashing attack on President Eisenhower on the Communist issue today. The White House hit back With a statement dealing wifh administration activities in the fight against communism. McCarthy whose conduct was condemned by the' Senate .last week, accused the President of congratulating senators who hold up the exposure of Communists and of urging" tolerance for the Chinese Communists who torture American soldiers. James C. Hagerty, Eisenhower's press secretary, told newsmen after a conference with the President that he was referring them to two news conference statements by El- senhower dealing with the administration's role in fighting commu- r.'ism at home and abroad. : Sen. Flanders (R-Vt), whose criticism of McCarthy sei the ball rolling toward Senate condemnation, told reporters the Wisconsin senator had "declared political war." McCarthy interrupted a hearing of his Senate Investigations Subcommittee today to read a state ment which ended like this: "Unfortunately the President sees fit to congratulate those who hold up the. exposure of Communists in one breath and in the next breath urges patience, tolerance and niceties to those who are .torturing American uniformed men." When newsmen first told Hag- rty about the McCarthy attack, the press secretary said he would have no comment. About an hour later, Hagerty called reporters to his office and told them that so .far as the international aspects of Mc- Continued on Page Two Special Leg/ort >, Meet Called foe 2:30 p.m. Sunday Commander James McLfirty announced Tuesday that & special meeting of Leslie HUddleston Post Number 12 will be 1 held Sunday December 12.

Adams today. Pour additional cars, the last,ordered by dealers to date, are expected by Thursday of this week. Under the Emergency Hay Program railroads reduced freight rates for hay on approved requests by 50 percent, Federal funds pay up to 25 percent but not to exceed $10.00 per ton. and the livestock owner purchasing the hay pays the balance, As an example, on an 18,1 ton car of alfalfa hay moving into Hempstead County from Idaho, the railroad reduced the ! freight $241.32, the Federal funds pay $120,68 and the approved purchaser paid $120.66 freight plus $7.24 Federal tax. Of the total costs the purchasers paid $127.90 of the original normal freight bill of $489.88. This was an emergency saving of $20.00 per Ion on the alfalfa hay in the particular car. To purchase hay from approved dealers, the cattle owner must make Cold War Shifts From Military to Economy WASHINGTON Iff) Secret ary of State Dulles said today that the struggle with ihternatidnal communism has shifted sonieWhat from, military to economic competition because fear of open war has lessened.
