HIGHTOWER WASHINGTON I/PI — Pressures arc mounting on the Eisenhower' ad.minislvatin to lower some of the I C^f,;d war barriers so as to permit more trt.dc between the United; States and Russia and its satellites. Many top officials responsible for international economic policy feel some decisions will have to be made farly soon. Meanwhile, splits pppear to be developing between the interests favoring trade and those wishing to maintain maximum economic pressure on '%? Communist b.'oc. T Thc iss-uc may come into focus upon an application by Minnesota businessman Dwayne Andreas for permission to export 20,000 tons of butter and 3,000 tons of cottonseed oil to Russia. These are not strategic materials and there is no policp barrier against them except a general policy under which the government reserves the right to bar any exports tc Russia contrary to tne. security interests of tvfj United States Officials said today the Andreas application is now before an interdepartmental committee made up of representatives of the State, Agriculture and Commerce departments, It deals with broad issues of economic security embracing the particular problem of East- West trade. This of course is not exclusively an American problem In fact, it has been mostly an &Vlicd problem. There are several forces pressing strongly for ofJicial sanaction of greater trade with the Soviet Union 'and satellite countries. for Quarterly jax Payers .WASHINGTON (UP) — Some 7,000,000 taxpayers who pay their income tax quarterly have until midnight tonight to square themselves for 1953.

Russia Could Clean Up on Butter Deal By Tlin Associated Press If the deal for sale of surplus butter to the Russians goes through, the Soviet government stands to make perhaps 500 per cent profit. The Russians will sell the buttsr through their state retail channels at prices comparable to those charged for Soviet, Argentine and Danish butter now on sale — roughly 30 rubles per kilogram, which is the equivalent of $3.40 pel- pound. ' Since the butter will presumably have been purchased at the export prices of the Commodity Credit Corp.— 40 to 50 cents a pound, the Soviet government stands to make a profit of 2.90 to $3 a pound, minus of oourse the costs of shipment and distribution. Meanwhile the whole thing will have cost American taxpayers from 15-25 cents a pound, since the U. S. government price to American farmers who produce the butter is OS cents, per pound. Lafayette to Get Road 160 Resurfaced LILE ROCK Wl The Arkansas Highway Commission decided yesterday to widen the 19 miles of Highway 71 between Eayette- ville and Rogers, the state's second most heavily traveled route, at an estimated cost of : $1,100,000. The commission gave up, at least for the 'present, on an earlier proposal for eventual expansion of the highway to four lanes. Residents of the sections said they were unable to furnish the "free" right of way requested for a four lane facility. Under the new plan, additional right of way will be required only where the road is relocated or where it is otherwJs,e necessary for proper construction. Where curb-to-curb pavement is needed in cities or other, highly- developed areas, the state will Checker Tourney IQ Be Held Here T ues., January 26 The Park and Recreation Department is sponsoring a checker tournament, to be held the night of January' 26. x The tournament will be run on a double culmination basis so as to give each participant every chance to win. Besides wide-spread prestige, the winner will also be awarded a prize. <$fihere have been several boasts made around town concerning the outcome of this tounrnameht that maybe some of the "Old Heads' can put to an end.

The commission said residents of the section have agreed to the new plan. Highway 160 in Lafayette County will be paved for 10 miles west of Bradley to John Corners with the nid of an unprecedented $20,000 from county turnback funds and another $30,000 from property owners along the route. The state will bear remainder of the estimated $200,000 cost. Lafayette Coun'.y Judge Brooks Parker told the commission he would relinquish $20,000 from his county's share of highway turn- back from the state for the next two ysars in the commission would pave the road. The commission agreed immediately. The commission was told that the property owners, who started the agitation for the paving, have deposited their $30,000 with the Lafayette treasurer -to be turned over to the commission when bids are received. Judge Parker will pay his $20,000 in eight $2.500 quarterly ind stallmerits beginning April 1. Highway turnback customarily is used by county judges for improving county roads and not for state roads such as Highway 160. . The commission heart two opposing delegatins express thcii views on where an access road from Faulkner Ccunty to the new Little Rock Air Force Base near Jacksonville should be located. One group wants the road along the established route of Highway 5; the other wants it west of Highway 5. The commission told both delegations it hoped to reach a decision toon. Contracts were awarded on efght construction jobs at a cost $1,426,032 and the only two bids received on a ninth job, for five miles of gravel surfacing on select- d sections of Highway 150 in Mississippi County were rejected Continued on p-aee Two Hospital May Pick New Chief LITTLE ROCK Wl —.Three trustees of the State Hospital met here today in secret sessior to talk ovei their soarch for a superintended of the mental institution.

Reports prepared for delivery at a medical conference in New York show the cance'r' cells' will detect aolio infections before any sump- oms appear —'And \&ien paralysis still might be prevented. This.first,' fast test to diagnose polio is only one of a dozen new ases thnt may mak'fe, the little bits of cancer tissue a universal test- ng agent rivaling the familiar white rat, but a far more accurate one. Details of the new achievement came from Drs. Jerome Syverton and William F. Schrerer of the University of Minnesota and Dr. George Gey of Johns Hopkins University. All are poioners in the cancer-and-polio work. Laboratory technicians can inject material from possible poilo patients into the test tube full of cancer cells — which are highly vulnerable to polio-viruses — and Lell at a glance in as little ns 12 hours whether the disease ac- lually is present. If it is th cancer cells will be destroyed if it isn't they will de- unharmed. However the scientists emphasized that it is -far too early kto tell whether there is any hope of using polio as a weapon against cancer in patients. In the modification of the test researchers can tell whether a patient is imhune to political needs protection against it. In another they can identify the type of polio virus causing an infection.

Bill Prepared for Air Force Academy By FRANK ELAZER WASHINGTON (UP) — The House Armed Services Committee hoped to send to the House today a bill to let tho air force build its own service academy at a cost which might run to $175,000,000. As ihe committee moved toward certain approval of the measure, controversy mounted over where to locate the proposed "West Point of the Air" and how the site should be chosen. The bill's backers feared the controversy might impede passage. Latest to propose a site for the academy were Rep. V. V. Brown (R-O.) and Paul F. Schenck (R-O.) who dropped identical bill s in the House hopper to locate the school "in the Miami Valley area" of Ohio. Their bills were piled atop a dozen or more earlier meastuj-es naming sites for the measures and were expected to be followed by others, despite picas by committee Chauman Dewey Short (fi- Mo) to postpone arguments ovei the site until after the academy js authorized. Air Force Secretary Howard E Talbott yesterday reiterated that no site had been selected or had an inside tr«»ck w4h the air force.

Complains About News Security By MARVIN L. ARROWSMITH WASHINGTON -W) '— The man named to handle them says he has received "around a dozen"': complaints about news being bottled up since President Eisenhower's new security information order went into effect a month ago today. Some of the complaints dealrwith matters that don't seem to come within jurisdiction of the oorder at all, while some of the others may — there hasn't been time to "decide,"' said Bernard f . M, Shanley, Eisenhower's spe'cial'-'CSunsel. He added in an interview that about half the protests filed so far deal with newsmen's unsuccessful efforts to have the administration make public a breakdown of reasons why 2,200 workers have been separated from federal jobs as security risks since Eisenhower took office. The President has said his information order was designed to assure the public a freer flow of news about the government without jeopardizing national security. He designated Shanley to receive complainis from newspapers and other news media about operation of. the order. Shanley said he is doubtful whether he has any jurisdiction with respect to complaints "that no breakdown has been given on reasons Cor the 2,200 separations from federal jobs. "But I'm not going to split hairs on that," ho said. "If there is anyth'ng I can do to help the press on tha.t matter, I'm willing to try." The "big trouble," he added, is that it is "almost impossible to provide a breakdown by specific reasons as to why he decided the 2,200 were security risks and shouldnt work for, the government." Citing an individual case, he said he had an FBI report on me federal worker as a user of narco' tics, a companion of known Communists -and "a crook."

It f wduld amend the Constitution, It would simply put the Senate on record as affirming certain attitudes toward treaties and their domestic effect. It would also require ft recorded roll call vote when thei Senale ratifies treaties. Bricker argues that an amendment to the Constitution is needed to insure that basic American liberties shall not be taken away by treaties which, he says,' might supersede domestic law and the Constitution itself. Lawyers disagree as to whether this is a real danger. President Eisenhower has said Bricker'fa proposal would hamper his oonuuct of -foreign affairs, while agreeing that no treaty should contravene domestic law. There has been no public red sponse to Kefauver's resolution idea from his colleagues. But administration forces are watching carefully for signs that it might brea,k a deadlock- on the highly emotional issue.
