Our Doily Bread Sliced Thin by The Editor Alex. H. Washburn i Maybe It Would Have j Been Better All Around ] If I Had Gone Fishing ;j When your editor wrote in this ^,., column last Saturday that he would ji\jpbc out of town a few days and he j "wasn't a-goin' fishin' " he had ! no idea what he was letting him; self in for. i Kenneth Ambrose, president of Hope Chamber of Commerce, and I 1 flew to Washington Sunday with ; tho Reel River Valley association ; official party to testify before a ' Senate sub-committee in behalf of \ the general flood control program, of which the proposed Millwood ; i^Uam is a part. Wo were in Washington from Sunday night until 10 Wednesday morning, returning home at 6:30 Wednesday night. Most of that time Washington was a tense and angry city, and we witnessed another event personally which left us shaken. Monday afternoon some Puerto Rican criminals shot up the House of Representatives chamber, AjWounding five congressmen. It was the biggest ncwsstory affecting Washington city since the British burned the capilol a century and . a half ago. . Where was the Hope delegation at the time? The merest chance determines whore any Washington visitor goes while marking lime for a date with a public hearing. With Ambrose and myself was J. Henry Williams, a planter of tNalchilochcs, La., and the three of "^us decided to go through the Smithsonian Institution. That was just before noon, and a couple of hours later we were tearing a lobster apart at Hogate's marine restaurant on the Potomac, at Maine avenue and Ninth street. We got back to the Mayflower hotel just before 3 p. m. — only to learn that the city was falling apart (the shooting was about 2:30). I .„ thought about The Star, of course, '4>but 3 p. m. in Washington is 2 p. m. in Hope — virtually our deadline . . . and I was in the wrong place to be of any help. Hotel rumor-factories are a dime a dozen in any city, and in Washington more than any place on earth the only accurate source of news is the capitol press gallery, or a newspaper office. So all I could do was pray that one of our wire services would come through with i v i bulletin in time for Hope. And the bulletin did come through — nut only a bulletin but a -long United Press dispatch which gave The Star exclusive coverage of the event among all newspapers circulating in this area Monday afternoon. Managing Editor Paul H. Jones had to hold up the edition and remake the front page in order to do it — but he had the Washington story of the century . . . and I congratulate him. :jf Our flood-control delegation went out to a gloomy capital Tuesday . morning, and tragedy struck right there in the Senate committee room. At the very end of the Red river valley hearing the opponents of Millwood dam were recognized and preparations made to put their statements in the record. The spokesman was Col. Roy D. Burdick, the others being Peter Jocrs of Dierks Lumber & Coal Co., and Louis Graves, editor and 9 publisher of the Nashville News. Col. Burdick began reading a 10-minute summary. After three minutes he faltered on a phrase, re-started the sentence — and then said, "I can't see ..." Louis Graves said, "Colonel, may I continue reading for you?" and took the papers gently. I had a sharp premonition of tragedy, and so did the senators -urj there on tho f committee bench. Louis read for another minute or two, and then Col Burdick, still standing in silence, began to slump. Louis stopped reading and caught him. Others helped. They called a doctor and took Col. Burdick to Walter Reed hospital. He never regained consciousness, and died at C;30 that night •Before leaving Washington Wednesday morning I sought to give ^. Peter Jocrs our heartfelt sympathy, W * but he was away from the hotel making funeral arrangements and I asked Louis Graves to forward the message. No community argument over the imponderables of flood control can obscure the fact that Col. Burdick died while doing the job he had devoted his life to. He had been a high-ranking officer of the Corps of Engineers for 30 years — from 1016 until his retirement in jp 1946. He was chief of operations at Memphis from 1935 to 1938 and directed the fight against the great flood of 1937 at Cairo. His final post was chief of the Little Rock district, retiring from the Corps of Engineers in 1946 to become a private consultant. I did not know him personally. But in his last great moment I knew him for a soldier whq followed his engineering calling to ^the very end. #&' I'll .remember this Washington trip ... : | A stormy flight to the capital.

Farm Income Takes Dip of 9 Per Cent WASHINGTON, (UP)— Income of the nation's farmers fell nine percent last year to the lowest level since 1949 while city dwellers made six percent more money, the agriculture department said today The department said sagging farm prices were responsible for the drop. It reported that net farm income — from farming operations and non-farm soucres— amounted to $20,466,000,000 in 1953. It put non-farm 1 , • or urban income at $259,0991000000 last year. The department said in a'report that last- year's net Jfarm Income what is Jl^ft after production costs are paid, amounted t'o" only 3G.5 percent of the farmers^ gross .receipts. It.-said this was the^/'sma]!-, esi pefcentag'fe' v for 1 " 1932." The non-farm income figures re based on 'commerce department estimates with "appropriate adjustments to improve their comara- bility with farm income." Nat'! Chairman Tries to Soothe GOP Differences By JACK BELL WASHINGTON Wl Republican National Chairman Leaonard P W. Hall sought to step into the breach between President Eisei.hower and Sen. McCarthy (-Wis) today in discounting the GOP family differences." Arrangements All Set for Chamber Banquet Hope Chamber ol Commerce will hold its annual banquet Friday f night, March'5. at 7:30 in the High School cafeteria. Principal speaker for tho occasion will be Ian Stuart, native of Ireland, who is currently director of public relations o£ the Southern State Industrial Council, Now a resident of the U. S., Mr. Stuart is widely known for his ability as a speaker. During the banquet the main course is barbecue chicken, the McCarthy himself, scon after he High School band's dance orchestra rejected presidential criticism In w in p ] a y tne program will also a crackling statement of his own, said in an interview, "I have no fight with Eisenhower at all. I hope the issuing of statements back and forth will drop here.' Eisenhower, without naming McCarthy in a long statement clearly aimed at him, spoke out yesterday against "disregard o£ fair play." McCarthy fired back that the President and he "apparently disagree only on how we should handle those who protect Communists." Hall, who had anticipated the President in publicly taking issue with McCarthy's investigative methods, said in a speech prepared for a New York luncheon of the National Republican Club that "we are not a divided party.'! "Our opposition, naturally, has made much of the party's 'family differences' during the past weeks," he said. "They -would have you believe that we republicans have split irrevocably over a problem involving personalities. "That's nonsense, of course. On many issues there are degrees of opinion, emphasis and approach . . . In a vital matter like com- batting the endless dangers 1 of communism, both on the home front and at the council tables abroad, we are in earnest accord."

The Story of Woolworth's Climb to Fortune and Fame Is Typiqally American BY ED CRERAGH For Hal B°yle WASHINGTON — "Dusk was aflernnnon on Feb. 22, 1979. On a side street in Utica, N. Y. , a freshly painted sign over a small shopfront proclaimed it to be the 'great 5 c Store.' "Behind the store's paper-cov - ered windows, F. W. Woolowrith proprietor, busied himself with last-minute preparations before opening for business. "A knock came at the door Woolworth answered it. A lady , now unfortunately unidentified, held a copy of an advertising circular with the merchant nud dis^ tributed that morning. "She pointed to the item 'fire shovels' at 5 c each. Woolworth invited her in and wrapped up the shovel. The customer paid him 5c in the fractional paper currency of the day, and he promptly put it into the till." As it turned out, Frank Winfield Woolworth, a rags-to-righes sel? getting abpard a Ponstellation. in Airport made man if ever there was one, put quite a fevv pieces of folding money into the till before he was through. And the F. W. Woolworth Co. is cheerily relating the story in and oficial history of itself and its founder to mark the 75th anniversary of the five-and dime institution. One thing bothers Woolworth 's: Who was that first customer? Why did she point to the item she wanted instead of asking for it? You have the feeling Woolworth's would like to do something for the old girl-maybe give her a scoop of coal for her "fire shovel," or something even handsomer—if she were aroung today. Chances are, though, she passed away without knowing she had touched off business venture which was destined to turn upside ican buying and selling upside down §nd to produce, ernong countless other things, the Woolworth and Woljsworth heiress Barbara Hutton.

House Approval of Excise Tax Cut Bill Seen By CHARLES F. BARRERTT WASHINGTON Speedy and overwhelming House approval was forecast today for a bill to cut a wide ranger of excise or sles 'taxts almost ont billion dollars. But the bill, okayed by the Ways and Means Committee over opposition by the Eisenhower administration threatened to set off a storm in the Senate over another issue. Sen. George. (D-Ga) said today he might move to tack onto the excise tax measure — when i thits the Senate — his controversial po- posal to increase individual income taxes,' particularly for low income families. The administration argued fiat the government cannot afford now such broad and sleeping, revenue .reductions as 4 are |provi.cicd in the bill to cut' to' 10 per cent all excise taxes now above that level, except for liquor and tobacco. The changes would be effective April. 1. They would cut taxes on movies Snd other admissions, telephone bills, rail, bus and air passenger fares, jewelry, cosmetics, pocketbooks, furs, luggage, telegrams, sporting goods, cameras, pens, mechanical pencils lighters and other items.

Mrs. Elm is a mathematics teacher in th'e Arkadelphia Junior High School Mrs. Teddy Goodloe or Arkadelphia was also a guest at the meeting. Prior to the program, Mrs. Frank Mason, local president, conducted a business meeting. The group voted to present at the AEA district meeting at Southern State College Magnolia, April 2 a life membership in AEA to the local county teacher who is oldest in periods of service. Mrs, Mason'announced a meeting of the Hempstead County education Association on March 9, at 7:30 p. m. at Hope Junior High School At the conclusion of the meeting the Oglesby teachers invited the group into the cafeteria, where they served a dessert course which car- ate Agriculture Committee. The chairman, Sen. Aiken ;(R- Vt), concedes the program, which he supports, has strong opposition but he said we have a hardworking and fair-minded committee." Main controversy centers around the administration pz-oposal to shift to a system of flexible price supports on farm products to replace the rigid price floors for basic crops whichr expire at tht end of this year. President Eisenhower and Secre- tay of Agriculture Benson are backing flexible supports ranging from 75 to 90 per cent of parity for major irops in place of the present fixed 90 per cent. Parity is a computed price said by law to give a farm product a fair relative purchasing power. ried.. out the St. Patrick's Day Opponents who contend that the thme.

It said the income of the farm population last year averaged $882 for each person 1 compared with $1,808 for the nonfarm population.

Smith of the Uth Judicial circuit announced today he w|y seek in, the Doctor Refuses to Answer Sen. McCarthy WASHINGTON I/O — SEN. McCarthey (-Wis) carried his search for Army Communists today Into a public hearing at which an Army doctor refused to tell whether he is or was a red. The doctor, PFC Marvin S. Belsky, said he has been denied an officer's commission. He refused to tell McCarthy's Senate Investigative subcommittee whether he believes this was because as McCarthy expressed it, he was "a member of the Communist conspiracy." Belsky challenged the subcommittee's right to ask him any questions. "I am a soldier under the jurisdiction only of the President of the United States as commander-in chief." Be" Isky said this committee has no jurisdiction over me." ',. Rejecting that argument, McCarthy said President Eisenhower at a news conference yesterday hati stated that all Army and gov» ernment witnesses should "wil- ingly and cheerfully give testimony" as long as it did not. ea danger security.

" ^ , Fears Attempt on Life of ( Eisenhower BY MEIMAN ISMITH WASHINGTON, —OJP)— Federal authorities fear Puerto Rican Nationalists may try to assassinate President Eisenhower or Secretary of State John Foster Dulles as a "death present" for their all- ing leader, a high' government source reported today. Pedro Albizu Campos, brooding head of the Nationalist party, lies seriously ill in Puerto Rico Although he is not considered in immediate danger of death, officials believe his declining health could be very explosive. If Albizu's fanatical followers feel he has little longer to live, the government source said there, is a definite fear here that they may make another suicidal attack on U. S. leaders as a final "present." This grim report followed private advices to the United Press from Puerto Rico that the shooting of five congressmen here Monday was part of an ambitious Nationalist plot to rock the government by slaying' Mr, Eisenhower, Dulles and FBI Chief J.
