' McClellan (D-Ark) says that "somebody Will have violates the perjury statutes" if principals in the McCarthy-Army feud repeat their public statements under oath. The Arkansas senator added that it is not a Democratic mess this time." McCleilan is the ranking Demo- .crat on the Senate Investigations •BtMbcommittee which McCarthy Weads. He will aid in a probe of o dispute between the Wisconsin Republican and the Army. The Army has accused McCarthy and his chief investigator, ,Roy Cohn of attempting to gain special consideration for a former committee staff member. Pvt. G. David Schine. In turn, the Army has been charged with offering information on Navy and Air Force affairs in an attempt to avoid an Investigation of the Army. McCleilan, in speaking here last night before the Arkansas Public Expenditures Council, did not re- 'fcr to any of the participants In the- dispute by name. He said he had not prejudged the dispute, but added: "1 consider it the committee's responsibility to wash its own — CUSTOM — SLAUGHTERING Anytime You Vyant Beef Processed for Your Deep Freeze MOORE BROS.

Box 104 MUfc Prices to AgoJn Drop LITTLE ROCK Wl — The price of milk here today dropped another penny to 21 cents a quart and 41 cent a half-gallon. All the major dairies followed a price cut annuoncs'd by the Terry Dairy Products Co., last night. This was the second one-cent price decrease since Monday. The Dean Milk Co., of Conway dropped its price first. Fred Terry, president of the i'er- ry company, said the price decrease is seasonal. While the decline Is on the wholesale price of milk, grocers usually pass on the savings on to the consumer. $1,500 Claim Is Allowed LITTLE ROC KI/PI — A'$1,500 claim submitted by the mother of a boy who lost the thumb and fingers from his left hand while an Inmate of the Negro Boys Industrial School was approved by the State Claims Commission yesterday. The 1955 Legislature will / be asked to appropriate the money for Mrs. Retha Reed Taylor, mother of 19-year-old Oliver Taylor.' Mrs. Taylor cla'med that industrial school employes, were negligent in allowing her son to operate , a portable circular saw. dirty linen, no matter now un pleasant it may be." He said some of the allegations in the present controversy "reflect on some members of the staff and maybe on the chairman." . Earlier McClellan- had said he will vote against statehood for Hawaii and Alaska when .the measure is considered by the Senate to morrow. He said he favored a bill providing commonwealth status for the territories. He also told-the council that, if the country has a depression, "we can expect some 1 kind of a.federal works program." He said he hoped it would not not 1 resemble the old Works Progress Administration. McClellan refused to say if he thought the nation may suffer a depression in the near future. "The present Republican admin istration does not concede there is any possibility that a depression is • in prospect" he said. "You are .better able to judge for yourself ... just what the pres en economic situation is." •£>* •SJvte FRAYED C FOR OUR 9 lf> I'' ROCKET SHIRT 995 - Airplane Cloth Collar that will outwear the shirt or anew shirt free.

B . i iuii Goes Into Deep Freeze By REX CHAN6Y WASHINGTON (UP) — President Eisenhower's new tariff reduction program went into a congressional deep freeze today and appeared certain to stay there for many Weeks. Many promtnent Republicans hoped to hear no more about it this year; But they conceded there isn't much chance of that. Mr. Eisenhower, in a special message to Congress yesterday, urged approval of a liberalized foreign trade program, including new authority to cut tariffs by 15 ;cr cent in the next three years and a three-year extension of the reciprocal trade agreements law. .Rep. Daniel A. Reed (D-NY) chairman of the House ways and Means committee which handles tariff legislation, is a long-time eclprocal trade foe. And he filed i vigorous dissent /to the Randall lommission report on which Mr. iisenhower's r e commendations were based. 'XX- . . Dunn examined the pole itself. 'Nobody's climbed this pole recently. There would be fresh scars from climbing irons. But all you'd need would be another pulley fastened to the basket itself. And may be a cord trailing along. When it was in position, the man waiting in that bush could grab the trailing cord, pull the basket to the ground. When'it was emptied, Eddie would pull -on his long cord and the basket would go up to the wire before' it started on the trip uphill." . "I suppose it would work. Pretty childish way to go about collecting extortion money. 1 ' . Jim smiled then went on in a voice that had suddenly grown grim. "Don't forget it was Eddie Stone up at the station. I have an idea such- a plan would have ap pealed to him." / "At least," Mark said, "your theory would account for the wads of paper around this- pole. So we'll have to have them gathered up and checked for prints. And I.sup- pose the guy down at this end waiting until the last pay-off, had been -made—-according : tdHhe 'time schedule—then sent up a glass of strawberry pop loaded with cyanide" "An empty glass," Jim said. "And a container for the pop. So it wouldn't spill. I think that was Eddie Stone's reward for his work." •'.,'• He walked over to the stake marker where the pen had been found, stared down at it as it the piece of wood should speak. He shook his head. "Be mighty careless to lose that initialed pen." He started back toward Mark, the sunlight glittered briefly from a small square of metal, level with the, hard dirt. Jim scuffed at 11 absently with his toe. It refused to move. He bent over, scraped dirt more cautiously; "Find something, Jim" "Looks like an ice pick," Jim said. "An all-metal one." He scraped with his knife. "An Ice pick, sharpened so it'd fit the description of the murder weapon Dr. Pardon gave us." The two men unearthed the ice pick carefully, and Mark put it in a roll of newspapers. It was an advertising pick, one stamped with the name of the donor, in this case the Hughes Furniture Company. "And the ball point pen right near by," Dunn said. "Complete with initials, G. W. Why, Mark One of them might have been lost That pick wasn't lost, though. It was stamped into the hard ground. Was that to hide it Or were we supposed to find it—after we located the ball point pen" Ten minutes later they were still discussing Jim's questions, when the man in^enim jacket and jeans walked up.' ' "Been waiting until you boys got through here. Didn't like to interrupt. Morning, Lieutenant." "Vern Bruce, isn't it" Richards demanded. "That's right. Used to know you when you were younger. Made a kite for you once, a long time ago." The man was tall, with a narrow head covered by much too long black hair streaked with gray. There was gray stubble on his cheeks, which made his face appear not-overly clean. "You want something" "It's this way, 'Lieutenant. You know where I live Next to old Gaylord Mansfield's place." field property, a 12-inch plank had been nailed so that it formed long bench, a good five and a half feet from ground level, and six inches from the fence top. At least a dozen cats of all sizes, shapes, and colors sat there. They sat and stared over the fence into the space beyond. "Hi, kids," Vern Bruce said. Furry faces and gleaming eyes ;urned momentarily toward the men, then returned once more to the important business of staring "I know." "Well, I been waiting around awhile. Thought you or some other cop would come around after what happened last night tp .the Stone comeTI be serious." "Then get to the point," Rich ards suggested. Bruce shook his head slowly. "Something's wrong over at Mans field's place." "Wrong What's wrong" "I didn't want to take a look around. Might run into Gaylord, We aren't .very friendly. Haven't been since some years ago when he wanted to borrow my Leppy cat for an experiment." "Hold it a minute," Richards snapped. "I know how hipped you are on your pets. Fprget about them. How do you know theVe's something wrong at. Mansfield's "You told me to forget about riiy ca_ts. All right. I won't bother you with them. And so I can't tell you how I know there's something wrong." * • "I suppose your cats told you" There was a glint of what might be humor in Bruce's eyes. "That's right," he drawled. Jim intervened before Richards exploded. "Maybe we ought to drop around, Mark. Remember Mansfield ignored the demands. "Might come and see," Bruce suggested mildly. He started off without another word, and Jim and Mark followed. The two friends went through a gate 1 into a large garden.
