They prefer the alters «ative small tributaries of Little river — but this alternative was rejected and Millwood was approved by the Ai'my Engineers. Thc great opponent of Millwood is thc Dierks Lumber & Coal Co., one of Anjcrica's major timberland operators; and its opposition is understandable. It's seldom pleasant to sec your private property . condemned to make way for public ;iS5vorks. But although Dierks' motive is understandable its current strategy is not. I am here repeating for emphasis what was published last fall immediately after the Plope committee returned from Shreveport. The Red River Valley association office told us that because of Dierks' continued opposition to Millwood' a conference was held between the parties favoring and opposing it and cijjj.his stipulation was made: An additional $150,000 would be provided and the Army Engineers would make a re-study of Millwood versus the alternative plan of several small dams — and this final report would be considered binding on both sides in the controversy. The Army Engineers brought in their new and final report — and it still favored Millwood and still rejected the alternative of sovwral ^ small dams. W But the stipulation for which this additional $150,000 of. re-survey money was obtained and spent has been broken. Dierks Lumber & Coal Co. continues to' employ a consulting engineer and continues to circularize southwest Arkansas with reports and maps favoring the alternative but rejected plan. One of thc effects of the Dierka propaganda report that ^..cement plant would be closed down -should Millwood bo constructed. But there is nothing in the official record tu show that the Okay plant has filed any objection, and everything in the same record, seems to indicate that the Army Engineers have given full protection to Okay in their plans for the flood-control reservoir. The only statement I have seen from a top official of the Okay plant was a guarded reply to a question based on Dierks' ...maps and Dierks' data — which is trasli or old fields at any time regp.rrlless of precautions." The state forester also said his department is stepping up its efforts to catch and prosecute "fire bugs." upon whom he blamed is to broadcast the possibly the Okay * propaganda pure and simple. *» Okay is to be heard in this matter the questioning should come from the Army Engineers — not from Dierks, a highly interested party. It was never The Star's intention to get into a controversy with either Dierks or our neighboring cities and counties. But according to the record the stipulation which preceded the Engineers' re-study of Millwood was the final chapter. *$} Controversy had ended — and st» it was time we asked ourselves and all thu other towns in thc area this question: When — not if — Millwood dam is built do you want to arrange with the Army Engineers for water rights, for your city folkw, your industries, and your farmers. This arrangement has to be made in advance of final construction plans. Denison, Texas, failed to make such arrangement before the government built the huge dam on Red river there, and now Denison can't get a bucket of water out of that reservoir for community needs. This is the true question before southwest Arkansas — not Dieiks' rhetorical question as to whether Millwood will be built. I think I am reporting the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, when I tell you Millwood will eventually be built. The controversy ended some f/time ago — and not all thd smok« coming up from Dierks' propaganda mill can obscure that fact very long. It's time indeed for southwest Arkansas to drop the pretense of controversy and get down to the true question: Do we want water Lnng said persons were fined $10 and costs each for setting fires yesterday—one in ' the Waldo area and the other near Tho in Nevada County.

By RUSSELL BRINES /ASHINGTON LY) — Russell (D-Gal nnd Mansfield (D- Mont) said today they fear thc United States may be baeked into war in Indochina. They called upon President Ei- senhowes to consult Congress bc- Xorce taking any further steps _ip help the French against, renewec Communist attacks Eisenhower told his news conference yesterday (hero is no attempt to carry on any policy in the dark. The Presidents said every move the government takes to aid anti- Communist forces- in Indochina i; .eareful'y calculated to keep the United States from getting involved in a hot war there. "What I . am .apprehensive about," Russell said in an interview, "is getting backed into war through the chipstone assignment of personnel." Russell, a member of ijhe Armed Services Committe said .'the committee was not told about the assignment of 200 .'•American Air Forc-j technicians oritil they were on thc-ir way to fndocli'ina. r He said by then it was <too late for the committee to do anything. "Thero are plenty of mechanics they could have gotten to do with? out sending servicemen."' Russell added. "There are plenty of me chanics in France." : The President jald there appeared to be some misunderstanding about notifying the committee in regard to the technicians. He added that the technicians will handle Amancau-provided aircraft in $ndochina, will riot be in combat and are scheduled to 'be withdrawn by next JJune • 15. Mansfield advised the adminis tration to "avoid the Truman mis take," by "informing Congress be fore any action is taken." '. "I don't wan* to be brought irito Indochina by the back door," he added in a separate interview. Mountain HomeDrys Victorious MOUNTAIN HOME — A seven-year-old ban on the legal sale of r.lcoholic beverages in Baxter County still is in effect today after prohibitionists won another local option election. With S4 of 20 precincts reported, the "drys" had 1,047 votes, while the "wets" hao" only 1,037. It was the biggest "drv" margin since the county first outlawed sale of boor and liquor in 1047.

The conditions were that if progress was achieved, or if Communist China promised to suspend aid to the Red forces in Indochina, there would be a Big Five conference plus the three as' sociated states of Indochina, Laos, Cambodia and yitnam. This conference would be limited to the to dbchinese war problem. Both the' Eden and Bldaultplans mark a slight concession.on the previous U.
