The Court upheld Pulaski Chancery Court in denying the petition of State Rep. F, A. Teague of Carroll County that the tax not be assessed against him. -— - '-The usc ax is similar to the \ copy" of""the 'luissellviTle'" Courier- state, which would no be subject to j Democrat, a 12-page edition with chandise purchased outside the „ an 8-page section devoted exclus- 1 ively to "Eat More Chicken Week." ! Russellville was given a vote of tSjjjnks by the convention for an ' unusually successfully tribute to the poultry industry. Well, there was the "beef"—the ; Hope area has a new and expanding | industry, the broiler business, and i maybe it isn't getting the public ; appreciation rightly due it. i And then, looking through the Russellville paper, we found a curious admission. The paper said that as late as seven years ago, "this couldn't have happened in Russell\ ?$&•" The broiler business is new also in Russellville, but still somewhat older than Hope's. But the facts about the broiler industry in the Hope trade area ? are worth repeating here and now. We have a total of 75 broiler houses, and their annual sales are in excess of $600,000. That's a truly important slice of ! this region's daily bread, and we should do better by it the next time i we celebrate "Eat More Chicken I Week." , Allen and Reilly went on to say that- .the • Little ; Rock meeting did 1 pass .a :; gcri2ral resolution of praise ' for all local chambers of commerce and other community units for the work'' they dicl on this year's "Week." . ••'"'.

' Teague said he was engaged in the business or raising chickens and turkeys for the commercial market; he buys day-old chickens and turkeys, feeds them only commercial poultry feed and then .sells them when they reach broiler size. The Supreme Court, in an opm ion written by Associate justice Ed F. McFaddin, rejected several contentions Teague made in seeking exemption from the tax. League asserted that poultry feel was exempt under a section of the 1949 Use Tax Act which said there would be no levy against "tangible personal property used by manufacturers or processors of dis tributors for further procedding, compounding or manufacturing."

T-' Japan and the <T|fnited States today signed a mutual defense pact to give the Japanese both guns and grain and hasen the day when American soldiers c£n withdraw from the island empire. The Mutual defense assistance agreement — actually a series of agreements — will pour 100 million dollars of American aid into Japan's economy in the next three months and probably amount to much ijpore in the long run. *'U. S. Ambassador John Allison said the agreement "takes us one step nearer the time when the United States can withdraw its forces from Japan.." Japanese Foreign Minister Katsuo Okazaki signed for his government. The agreement will boost Japan's defense force from 120,000 to 160,000 men, and hold it along "manufacturer 11 of poultry in reality the broiler is the com- Roosevelt Is Endorsed by Democrats _more military lines. '•J^tates will supply 'planes. The United ships and The United States also will start the movement of 500,000 tons of surplus wheat and $100,000 tons of barley to Japan. And Japan will sell the grain domestically and in turn use the money for guns and ammunitions. The agreement was hammered out in eight months of negotiation •which at times brought the Liber! 1 government of Prime Minister higeru Yoshida under intense opposition criticism. Despite Socialist opposition, the government expects ratification by April 1. Allison emphasized that th epact does not require Japan "to send its young men abroad." He quote Secretary of State Dulles who said recently the agreement would be "purely of a defensive .nature, directed exclusively toward contrib- _jng to the defense and security of *he Japanese homeland." LOS ANGELES UP) Roosevelt, accused by tranged wife of being a derer, has , won.. |he endj of the Democratic party : as i candidate for Congress in the District. Prior to the endorsement by the 26th District Democratic Council, made by acclamation on the second ballot, the 46-year-old insurance executive said in a speech that he decided to enter the race to "obliterie" charges againsts him and "slurs against the ideals of my father." The eldest son of the late Prei- dent Franklin D. Roosevelt made no specific reference to his wife's sensational separate maintenance suit, but he did say last night, "Personal questions are being used not only against me but against the Democratic party." He added that the "questions' left him two choices, eiher to retire from public life, which he said would acknowledge "evidence of guilt and lack of courage," or: "To come before the people and get elected to Congress and make a record which forever would be an answer to any smears the opposition would make." In her suit, Mrs. Romelle RoosC' vlet, 38, named three co-respondents and filed a letter signed by Roosevelt and admitting infidelities withr nine other women. He has denied all he charges, saying he was forced to sign the letter in 1945 to prevent his wife from divorcing him and thus adding to the burdens of his father as president. or pro "and that — James his es- philan- Negro Youth, 14, Admits Breaking Into Cafe-Store City Police have arrested a 14- year-old Negro boy for breaking Jnto Metcalf's Grocery and Store ie night of February 22.

Coffee 'was imported into Colo America at least as early as Ike Feels Excise Tax Cut Bill Goes Too Far WASHINGTON iff) — Republican pngres.iional leaders said at the Awhile House today that President Eisenhower feelst that a House bill o cut excise taxes nearly a billion ollars "goes a little too far." House Speaker Martin (RMass) alkihg to newsmen after the lead-i rs' regular Monday morning coni erence with the President, said I he administration hopes to'get the 1 proposed reducion figure pared ;own some when the measure caches the Senate. Martin added, however, that nei her the administration nor GOP louse leaders will make any effort o reduce the proposed cut in the House. The speaker said Hie present )lan is to call the bill up for de)ate in the House on Wednesday. The measure, in addition to cuting many excise taxes would contin- te beyond April 1 the"present ex? cise or sales levies on a number of items, including liquor, tobacco, :asoline .and automobiles. On other items the existing ex cise rate above 10 per cent would be cut back to that level. At his news 1 conference last week, Eisenhower indicated he night have to accept some reduc- ion in excises even though he has spoken out against them .at this ;ime. The President said it some times is necesspry to slaoow some castor oil along, with the sugar coating. After today's 2%-hour conference a the White House, Martin was asked about Eisenhower's current position' regarding the excise cuts — whether he .had changed his al titude on the matter. ; 'I think the' President shares with the secretary of the Treasury the .idea that this the proposed cu) goes a little too far," Martin replied. "They hope to reduce it some in the Senate."

No Politics in Flower Shows, Which May Be the Reason They Are Always Successful BY ED CREAGH For Hal Boyle WASHINGTON UP) — You like flowers Come along to Washington. We've got acres of them from sassy yellow tulips to frail- as-a-wisp orchids-all under one roof at the National Capital Flower Show. Prettiest thing you ever saw. Maybe I shouldn't mention this but you can do more than smell the posies at this big annual event. You can get your back massaged and your personality analyzed. I did both and my back came out better than my personality. Flowers are the main attrac - tion, though and that's fine with me. I'm a great garden fancier and our back yard would be a solid mass of blooms in summer except that I'm too tender-hearted; I hate to see my wife's ha.nd calloused from '.doing all the work. Boris Timchenko the landscape artist, designed this year's show, and came up with what he calls "one of the newer ideas of outdoor living the newest of all necessities, or maybe the greatest of all luxuries- the private bedroom garden." "There is," says Timchenko, a man after my own heart, "a ten' 4ency to spend more t,tef in ypur bedroom, to relax in your bed, or recline in a chair: to let your mind wander over the most peaceful of all spectacles-plants and flowers growing in the early morning sunlight." Tiptoeing away to avoid waking Timchenko-who does the planting and weeding, by the way, while he lies late abed-you can invest! gate some of the sample gardens One of the better ideas: A childproof garden, with your prized blossoms cannily planted out of reach of the demon figers of the young'uns. But oops—what's this: "Would you care to have your back massaged" asks a nice looking girl in a booth at the edge of the floral display. You look dubiously at your wife, but she's 'ost in rapture .over some flame-red camelias so you need a nervous asssnt. Oon't expect too much, though. All the girls does is On the agenda will be a discussion of cucumber production, soil . preparation, application of barn(yard and commercial fertilizer and planting, along with a campaign aganist rats and mice and an educa tional film.
