It's chicken raising. And it's big business. None of the small time" backyard flocks often associated with the business. Tn less than five years a 'inconse- sas has moved from a inconsequential producer to second to Georgia, the nation's leader in turning out chickens. Production of-broilers in Arkansas last year was a record 74,000 000 birds, up 2 per cent over the 1952 turnout of 72,627,000. The 1953 gross to chicken farmers was $54,553,000. Arkansas' 1953 production was second to 12}j631,000 broilers raised last year in Georgia. Hand in hand with ithe tremendous growth of broiler industry in this state has come a surge in turkey raising. The Federal-State Crop Reporting Service'sawys there were .70;000 turkeys in ASrkansas as of Jan. 1 1954. ^Compared with 47,000 on th same date in' 1 1952.

Mitchell expressed disapproval of McCarthy but insisted he was the Republicans' "problem," "They elected him to his posi- ;«on," Mitchell said in <a reference to the Republican senatorial caucus, which chose McCarthy chairman of that House's Permanent Investigating subcommittee. Mitchell said Nixon's speech Saturday was "not a sufficient" answer to Democrat Adlai E Stevenson. Nixon made a television appearance as the official GOP spokesman to answer criticism by defeated presidential nominee Stevenson. Mitchell also charged Nixon wns 'not very careful about the facts" in suggesting the Truman administration "deliberately -planned" budget deficits and would never have removed economic controls.

Mitchell also said that Democratic complaints of a "one-party" press were becoming less and less valid. • He .commended the press for "digging out the facts" on what he called, the "hoax" that 2,400 discharged government employes were all security risks or spies. He also said the natural tendency of the American press was to view with "distrust" t he .government in power, although "it took them a long time" with the Eisenhower- administration.

Labriola, 37, who .once had his oversize nose bobbed by a plastic surgeon, was the spn of a member of the Uhioni Siciliano, the nucleus of Al Caponn's mob. His father, step-father and uncle all died violently. But .like his tubby friend Wein berg. S3, Labriola • never rose lo the upper ranks of .the underworld.
