Unions Guard Rich Fund for Welfare By NORMAN WALKER • MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (/PI — The AF.L Teamsters Union Executive Board today considered establishing safeguards on handling rich union welfare funds and taking a stand on the proposed AFL-CIO "no raiding" agreement.

Or do you, Mr. The milk question in which Hempstead producers asked the city to either enforce or abandon an ordinance regulating sales in Hope is still an undecided issue following last night's council meeting. Herman Brown, spokesmen for the dairy producers of Hempstead, contended that Terry Dairy Company of Little Rock doesn't meet requirements of the city ordinance and asked the milk firm not be allowed to sell in Hope. Talbol Feiid Jr., representing Terry, discussed several points of the long ordinance which even City Attorney W. S. Atkins, later in the discussion, admitted were con-' flicting. Dave Terry owner of the milk firm said his 1953 rating was 97 by the U. S. Government and that the rating of Borden and Midwest, the other companies involved, was at least two years old. Brown told the group the Texarkana milkshed rate was 98.2 The government's minimum rate for milk is 90. The whole thing hinges around interpretation of the ordinance and the council heard at least three opinions last night, all different. Health Inspector Rogers told the group that the Federal Government rating is 90 or higher and that he interpreted the ordinance as instructing him to satisfy himself ./as to what's safe for consumers here before issuing a permit. Fred Johnson's motion to ignore the producers complaint died in the discussion and he finally withdrew it. It ended with the council .accepting a suggestion from W. S. Atkins to have Dr. Rogers get official ratings from the U. S. Health Department.

Mr; Brown told 'the group he hadn't been able, so far, to get it to work. However, the system was working at the time a new setup was installed for the department, according to the police radio log. L. B. Tooley told the council he :oo had received several inquiries about the. equipment from possible )uyers and asked if it was for sale The Mayor replied that anybody is welcome to bid on it.

The Dierks Lumber & Coal Company may be the chief antagonist out they don't own a stick of type n this plant. As a matter of fact, the cement company and the railroad company will do if Millwood is built than does the executive vice president of the company. The second statement sve would make is this — the Dierks Lumber and Coal company may have his newspaper has never asked pledged to drop opposition to Mill- hem how much of their land would 1 wood if the Engineers found the oe under water, nor how much multiple dams not feasible.

A couple of requests for elec- rical lines by H. J. Byers and Ray Turner were turned over to a committee.

WASHINGTON (/P)—Sen. Douglas (D-I11) said today new government unemployment statistics suppor his contention that the nation al ready is in a recession. The Commerce Department announced last night that a new method of gathering data indicates unemployment in early January totaled 3,087,000 or 728,000 more than a previous report showed. The department said its Census Bureau collected statistics over much wider area than before. Secretary Weeks said studies will be made to tell whether the new 01 old method is more accurate. Douglas said in an interview the new unemployment total for early January "supports my previous contention that the unemployment figures issued by the Commerce Department have been drastically understated." And some Republicans privately questioned the political wisdom of changing sampling methods at this time,. One Republican leader in the Senate said in another interview he could not understand switching to a' new statistical method at a time Democrats were shouting "recession." He asked not to be quoted by name. But Sen. Ferguson (R - Md), chairman of the GOP Policy Committee, disagreed with is republican colleagues vvho grumbled privately about possible adverse political repercussions. Group Approves Tax Cuts for Retired Workers WASHINGTON UP) — The House Ways and Means Committee today approved tax cuts for millions o£ retired workers, amounting to about 300 minllion dollars a year The committee adopted a provision by Rep. Mason R-I11. exempting the first $1,200 of annual retirement income from personal income taxes The exemption would apply to all types of income—whether from pension, dividends, rents, annuities, or other investments. And it would apply regardless of age to nil retired workers, even those bo- effect with the which falls lue in low 65 It would take 1954 tax bill early 1955 The plan was approved as part of general revision of the tax laws Presumably it would boost the total annual tax reduction un_der the program from about two billion dollars, as estimated by the Treasury, to about $2,000,000,000. Under present law, retlrem.cn income gets no special treatmen except that generally a worker is no taxed on pension or amunity benefits which he' himself nur chased- through regular contributions The committee defeated a mo tion sponsored by some Republicans to-limit the exemption to persons with retirement income of less than $5,400 a year Earlier Republican on the committee ,, were within two weeks, tion, pjobably within two weeks, to conqil about 3 billnon dollars in annual tax cuts set for April 1 Arkansas: Fair cool ftoon.

Rep. W. Sterling Cole (R-NY), chairman of the Senate - House Atomic Energy Committee, gave letails never before discussed pub- icly of a 1952 thermonuclear test n the Marshall Islands. President Eisenhower has termed that test irst step in the nation's hydrogen rogram. Cole said in a speech prepared for a joint luncheon of the 38th annual National Sand and Grave Association convention and the 24th annual National Ready Mixed Concrete association convention: "That thermonuclear test of 1952 completely obliterated the test island in the Eniwetok Atoll. "It tore a cavity in the floor of the ocean—a crater measuring _ full mile in diameter and 175 feet m depth at its lowest point. Congress to f Be in on Any Crisis Move By JACK BELL. u WASHINGTON W—Senators said today President Eisenhower has promised to consult Congress before acting in any crisis which might bring demands for use of American toops in Indochina.

In all, he 1 said, the 1952 blast would have blanketed an area' of 300 square miles. But thi test was held almost a year and a belt ago, Cole said, and he added: "Security keeps me from commenting on where our hydrogen weapon program now stands, and from outlining the directions in which it is now moving. But I can assure you that it is moving" Cole said he feels "it is more sinful to conceal the power of the atom than to reveal it" He referred indirectly to a recent remark of Secretary of Defense Wilson, who told a news conference he wished there was less 'atomic rattling. Church Drive to Boost Membership Using the slogan,, "Give God a chance Now!" the local First Me ;hodist Church has launched aij intensive Church and Sunday: Schoo Attendance Crusade. The Crusade is a part of the nation-wide Methodist effort to in- :rease the number of members taking part in all services and activities of the church. Plans for the Crusade ha.ve been completed by the local commission on membership and evangelism composed of Claude Tillery, Chairman; Harrell C. Hall, Secretary; Paul Lewis, Syd McMath, Royce Weisenberger, O. A. Graves, -Albert Graves, William Routon, Mrs. R. L. Broach, Mrs. Edwin Ward, Mrs. C. D. Lester, Miss Bennie Jean Edmiaston and Miss Judy Hammons. On the .Hope. Methodist Church Roll are "882" resident members r- about 435 family groups. The goal to the Crusade is to have an average of 650 at Church School each Sunday and at the two church services. The goal Is 000 but on Sunday, Feb. 14, the goal is 700. Teams from the local church will visit each Methodist Family (not at a church service next Sunday, Feb. 21) and they will also visit nonmember families who hav expressed a preference for, or interest in the First Methodist Church of Hope in a recent city-wide church :ensus. cult to see any reason wny this country should ever again experience an old-fashioned depression." But CIO President Walter .'. Reuther called It "dangerous and unrealistic" to think that "spring and the robins will bring prosperity." He obviously referred in a statement for the Senate-House Economic Committee to recent predictions by administration spokesmen that the U, S. economy, which thcp contend is adjusting after the Korean War, will start turning upward about spring. The Chamber said in its statement for the committee that so far the "inevitable readjustment" which it said was "bound to follow the end of fighting In Korea" has been "surprisingly easy." The committee is making its annual study of the President's economic report, which Reuther described as a 'weak-vlslpned doca ment." The Chamber said business in 1954 "will be good .by any standards; established before 1950," but that it probably will not be as "buoyant" as in 1953. Bricker May Back-Offer ™~ ' r *? by George By JAC KBELL WASHINGTON, W— Sen.
