26—Lebanon Daily News, Lebanon, Pa., Thurs., July 22, 1954 Parched States Plead For Aid; Midwest Cooler By UNITED PRESS Long - awaited cool air pushed farther southward in the nation's parched midsection today, but burning drouth still gripped the South and Southwest. Gov. Johnston Murray of Oklahoma added his state to the list of those asking President Eisenhower to declare them federal-disaster areas. Officials in Missouri, Illinois, Alabama and Georgia have already requested federal assistance to fight disastrous drouths. The President declared parts of Wyoming and Texas drought disaster areas Wednesday. The U.S. Weather Bureau said fresh, cool air from Hudson Bay had surged over Iowa, Illinois, southern Michigan, Indiana and northern Missouri. Temperatures plunged 20 degrees over a 24-hour period in Chicago and 19 degrees in St. Louis. But there was no relief for sweltering cities such as Dallas, Tex., which marked its 17th straight day of 100 degree temperatures Wednesday. Other high temperatures in the nation's firebox were 109 at Presidio, Tex., 106 at Wichita, Kan., and 101 at Oklahoma City, Okla. Heat Death Toll Almost two weeks of blaring heat has killed 258 persons across the nation. The worst toll — 224 — occurred last week, but 34 more died this week. The rains that ushered in the cool wave were credited with saving millions of dollars worth of crops in Iowa and parts of Missouri, Illinois and Indiana. But farmers in scorched southern Illinois said it was too little and possibly too late. New Storms Meanwhile, the clash between cold and hot air stirred up new storms in the Midwest. A tornado hit the Chadron, Neb., area, damaging power lines and farm buildings, and the weather bureau reported numerous thunderstorms and gusty surface winds in the region. $11 -Who Is He? --$11 Daily NEWS will person The Lebanon pay Sll today t who correctly identified the man in the Quiz Photo.

The commissioners agreed then that the work was necessary but took no formal action on the proposal. The supervisors were asked to meet with the commissioners to decide on how the project was to be financed. Clerk Meiser explained it could either be done through the Liquid Fuels Tax Fund or the county could make a contribution, with the supervisors paying part of the expense. In either method, the State At Aspen, mountaineers Colo., braved four expert rain storms and high altitude cold to rescue a young musician, Arthur Grossman, who had collapsed near the peak of a 14,300 foot mountain. Elsewhere, temperatures cooled 20 to 30 degrees in Montana and showers and thunderstorms pelted most of the nation's Eastern third. LANCASTER LIVESTOCK LANCASTER, stock: Pa.

The 'talkathon is being waged by those who don't like those features of the legislation which would cut private industry in on government power and atomic secrets. Senate Republican leader William F. Knowland warned when the Senate session began at 10 a.m. (EOT) Wednesday that he would keep it in continuous session until the revision bill is passed. Just to show he meant it, Knowland had a bunch of cots brought into the Senate cloakroom. Attendants said they were well filled during the night, although most senators preferred sleeping on the softer couches in their offices. Most of them did manage to get quite a bit of sleeping done, since there were never more than about Tour senators on the floor during the overnight debate. However, there were two quorum calls, which required the Senate sergeant-at-arms to comb Capitol I Hill for snoozing U.S. senators who were routed out of the arms of morpheus and rushed to the Senate chamber. They weren't particularly happy about it. Before Morse took the floor, Sen. Henry M. Jackson (D-Wash.), carried the bail for anti-administration forces. He spoke from 3:46 a.m. until 5:15. Morse began his talkaton by calling for adoption of a Senate rule to end filibusters. He has sponsored such a resolution for many years and he promised to try again this year. If it's adopted, he pointed out, it would he impossible for a senator to talk so long. He was fortified during his speech by a not of hot tea. a glass must approve the project or the county officials could be surcharged. The township supervisors were scheduled to meet with the commissioners later today. Sanger Explains Sanger explained this morning: "I asked the supervisors what they were going to do about the road. They said they had no money and probably couldn't start on it this year. "I said 1 understood the county was going to give them extra appropriations and they said if that ,vas the case they'd get started. 1 thought they knew enough to fill out the applications before t h e y started." > Want Work Done Sanger told Commissioners George T. Tucker and Irwin S. Huber today he understood the county wanted the work done rapid- y because of the heavy use of the •oad by the employes of Winthrop- Stearns. "That's right," Tucker said, "but >ve have to get approval first from *he authorities. It should be done but let's do it according to the law.' Huber reminded Sanger that the commissioners had not agreed to pay for the road completely but that it was a matter they were to 'ake up at a meeting with the supervisors. Sanger re-iferated his contention that the supervisors apparently misunderstood him in their conversation with him. Work on the road has progressed to the point where most of the surface of the quarter-mile section has been roughed for grading. Approve CD Radio Station In other action today the commissioners gave their approval to plans to set up and maintain a two-way radio network base station at the county jail at a cost o approximately 31,200. Half that amount will be returned in govern ment matching funds under a Civi Defense arrangement. Hershey Wagner, chairman o the radio committee of the Leba non County Firemen's Association told the commissioners about 22 fire companies have indicated the, will join the county hookup. Three —the Washington, Chemical and Independent—are city fire companies. The city companies, on the whole, lave decided not to join the county system. Wagner expressed confidence, however, that they would eventually enter the svstem. Bolls totaling 53,734.93 were approved for payment at the morning session.

The Pennsylvania Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation Committee, an arm of the U. S. Dept. of Agriculture, will supervise balloting in the Commonwealth. The committee said a requirement for voting is that a farmer grow 15 or more acres of wheat. The poll of farmers is to determine whether the 1955 crop will be grown under rigid acreage quotas and high price supports or no marketing controls and low price supports. A two-thirds majority of eligible voters is necessary for the adoption of wheat marketing quotas. Acceptance of acreage allotments will mean top price supports; rejection will mean supports at 50 per cent of parity. The outcome of the vote is of paramount importance to more than 80,000 Pennsylvania wheat growers who are expected to produce more than 15,000,000 bushels of wheat this year. In a similar referendum a year ago, less than one-fifth of the eligible Pennsylvania voters participated, but enough votes were cast on the national level to provide acreage controls and high supports. price Lebanon Represented At Luther League Sessions Approximately 500 persons are attending the Luther League Convention of the Central Pennsylvania Synod now in session at Susqite- hanna University, Selinsgrove.
