Albert Hopkins of Little Rock, president of the Arkansas Farmers Union. Hopkins' comment came after Secretary of Agriculture Benson told the National Farmers Union Contention here that those who advocate high rigid farm price supports are, leading farmers toward the complete breakdpwn of federal farm-aid programs. The Arkansan said -he had hoped Benson would indicate in his s-peech that the-* administration would "do something to bolster our sagging economy. 1 ', r "Instead^ 1 jlttlw' Padded, < >"there were strong implications that ( ,the pace of the 'current trend (toward flexible farm supports would be stepped up. Now t it is apparent that" our 1 only relief lies with Con- 'grcss." . v '•- Leveling Off in School Construction By WILLIAM W. HUGMt§ LITTLE ROCK, (UP) — A "lev elling-off" process in public schoo' construction, previously predictec by education officials, has become apparent in the issues that are on the ballot for the annual schoo' .elections jn Arkansas this Saturday. A much smaller precentage of construction bond proposals are on the ballot this year as well as fewer requests for increases in school millage rates. Sttate Education Commissioner Arch Ford said recently that most of the school construction needs in the state have been met, particularly those caused by largei school population has been th program for equalization of school facilities between white and Negro students. Ford and other education officials have estimated that at least $21,OOQ,000 (M) is required to bring Negro education facilities up to the average of white facilities. A United Press survey of issues on the ballot this Saturday indicates that the': highest millage rate request may be ,the one for 70 mills being asked in Western Grove district No. 12, in, Newton county. This ties the all-time previous record set'tin. the Parkin district of Cross county. The 40-mill increase at Western Grove probably will go into a building fund. The district' previously tried to borrow money from the states revolving loan fund for construction purposes. . . . A new rate of 08 mills is being sought in the Brookland- district of Craighead County:to replace the $300,000 three-year-oid school that burned down there several weeks ago. One of the largest bond issues to be voted on is at Stuttgart, where voted on is a 5400,000 proposal in eight-mill increase to a new rate oC 33 mills to retire a proposed $425,000 bond issue for. school building. Another large bond issue to be voted on is a $400,000- roposal in Warren special District No. 1 in Gradley county. A 2-mill increase in the millage rate is being asked to retire the bond issue for construction of an 18-rpom elementary school for Negroes and a 14-room school for white pupils. The total enrollment at Warren jumped from 1,614 in 194G to 2,200 in 1954. A bond issue of $125,000 is being sought at Mena for construction of a new elementary school in that Polk County city. No millage boost would be required for this, however. This also holds true at the Harrison s'chool district No; 1 where Boonc county voters are asked to approve a $1§0,OOC/' b$nd / issue with no increase in taxes. The money would be used to build a new grade school. In Mississippi county, a bond issue of $50,500 is 'sought to ^repair and equip schoor buildings'. Another 6-8 Cigarettes a Day Is Best FfcANCISCO (UP) — '. Dr. Charles S. Cameron, medical di-> rector of the American Cah'cer Society, said today he smokes a pack of cigarettes a day — but advsied- other persons to stop at six or eight. Cameron said persons concerned about lung cancer should smoke "moderately" because of the possibility cigarettes cause the disease. "By moderately, I mean six or eight cigarettes a day," he said. "And people -who don't smoke would be better off if they didn't start." Cameron, here for a meeting of the cancer society's board of directors, said yesterday, "evidence to date justifies the suspicion that cigarette smoking does, to a degree as yet undetermined, in rease the likelihood developing cancer of the lung." He was careful to emphasize, however, that cigarettes cannot be the whole cause of lung cancer. He said other elements to blame are asphalt in street pavement and motor fumes in the atmosphere. •urn George Washington called Connec ictit the "Provision Slate" because its residents contributed more war goods to his army than any other during the Revolution. Oilers, Peono Coast to MUWins issue of $18,000 would finance replacement of a school at Wilson lhat was destroyed by fire. Voters in the NorpheH district of Union county are asked to approve $40,000 for construction of additional classrooms and a cafeteria. An'l at Junction City District No. 75. a six-mill increase is sought to ju'ld a school for Negro student. In Jefferson county bond issue of $00,000 at Dollarway District No. 2, and $40,000 at White Hall District No. 27 are on the ballots. "A $7,050 bond issue is sought at Big Flash District No. 32 in Bax- :er county. Mountain Home District S T o. 9 wants a six-mill increase to nelu retire existing debts. Millage increases for debt service and building funds are soueht at the Huntsville and Kingston clis- .rints in Madison county. The town of Gurdon in Clark county is seeking a four-mill in crease for improvements to Negro school buildings, including con struction of a new gymnasium. In Independence • county, a five- mill increase is on the ballot for $25,000 construction bond 'issue vill be voted on at Oil Trough. No millage increases or bond is suos are on the ballot in populous Sebastian county, location' of Fort Smith, Arkansas' second largest city. And in Pulaski county, most popu- ous in the state, only an eight- mill increase in North Little Rock s on the. ballot. There are no other millage boosts or bond issues in he twin cities. Little Rock's principal building needs were taken care of in large Dond issues voted a year ago. i^'-^WSSv-;;:'-. • "T^^f---^ ''"K ,fW s t ; «• . ' Jf^l/V''^ W^>'^" ?
