Condemns .Russia for Leak in Arms Parley WASHINGTON, (UP) —The Unit ed States today charged Russia j with a "shocking breach of faith" I in breaking the secrecy rule at r ;the five-power London disarma- pment talks. m'.State Department Press Officer jlsijbnry Suydam told reporters that this feeling against the Soviet Union was shared by Britain, France .and Canada as well. Soviet Delegate Andrei Gromyko violated the disarmament secrecy rule by granting an interview to the Soviet Tass news agency. The British Foreign Office, which also attacked the soviet violation, said that the secret proceedings of the London disarmament talks would be released because of persistent SSviet "leakages." Suydam said that U.S. Delegate Ambassador James J. Wadsworth planned to issue a statement in London and that the French planned a similar move. "In general the attitude is that the statements and disclosures of Mr. Gromyko before he left London are a shocking breach of faith," Suydam said.

The spokesman said the Western delegates protested "some time ago" in the five nations United Nations rearmament subcommittee .meeting against an earlier Russian *i>reach of secrecy, "In due course the proceedings of the disarmament nations subcommittee will be told," the spokesman said. The spokesman said a statement by Soviet Delegate Andrei Gromyko last night on the disarmament proceedings "is a gross breach of pulled out of the conference yesterday for a surprise visit to Stockholm. ^ Moscow radio broadcast his •statement in the form of an interview with the Soviet Tass news agency. "If the Soviet delegation insists on distorted versions it shows clearly that all they are out for is propaganda," the spokesman said in the sharpest rebuke of the conference to Russia. i Operation on Arkansas Boy Successful By JOE F. KANE Minneapolis (IP) — An Arkansas boy's blood was pumped for 15 crucial minutes during a heart op- 'y'eration through a lung which had been removed from a dog and inflated to about the size of a. football. Some details of the dramatic operation on Calvin Richmond, 13, Pine Bluff, Ark., were revealed last night by doctors at University of Minnesota Hospitals. The boy was reported' in satisfactory condition after three holes were closed in his heart chamber ^Wednesday. . •"' A short time before the three- hottr operation, the dog's lung was removed and suspended in a plastic cylinder six feet frorn the patient. When actual repair work on the heart began the boy's blood flow was diverted by a mechanical pump through plastic tubes into the dog's lungs. The isolated, sterile lung was ventilated with 100 pe.- cent oxy- ^gen to purify the blood. A second pump then carried the blood back into the boy's system, first passing 'the blood through heated water to warm it.

' ARBbGAST — The House By WILLIAM WASHINGTON Appropriations Committee today accused the ' Agriculture Department of allowing political considerations to darken the future of American farmers. It blistered the department's management in a report recommending $878,625,391 in cash and 388 million dollars in lending authority to finance the agency for the next fiscal year. This was a net cut of only budget requests. The report by $6,424,524 from the committee bristled with criticism of Secretary Benson and "others about him." The Commodity Credit Corp. and its parent organization, the Com modity Stabilization Service, bore the brunt of the committee's wrath. Benson is chairman of the Board of Directors of the CCC, which handles the government's farm price support program. Noting a steady drop in farm income and a steady rise in farm costs in recent years, the committee said, '"The outlook is for still further declines in net farm income in 1955." Since 1945, it said, the farmers' share of the consumers' food dol lar has dropped from 54 to 43 per cent and "prospects are that this trend will continue." In the South' particularly, it added, the situation is "deplorable" because of government curtailment of cotton acreage. More than 155,000 farm families in the south "have been put off their farms, with no homes and limited employment possibilities," the committee said, and 130,000 fknn families with gross income of $1,000 or less annually will suffer further losses of $100 or more this year The committee accused the CCG of having "largely overlooked" its responsibility to protect the government's investment in food surpluses. The CCC has invested more than seven billion dollars to support farm prices, the committee said, but up to February of this year nearly $3,700,000,000 worth of commodities had .never 'been .offeree 'i6r v ''sale'r ; '< ' prices. 1 "There is reason to believe thai such products could be sold ir work markets through norma! channels if an effort were made to do so on a competitive basis," the committee commented. It directed the CCC to get a sales manager at once and to develop a program under which surplus commodities will, be sold for the best price the government can get. Cold Weather Returns to Most of State By The Associated Press A cold air mass bore down oh Arkansas today, bringing much colder weather for all of the state and snow for the northern sections. An extended forecast by the tf. S., Weather Bureau of Little Rock calls for continued cold weather through Wednesday, with some rain about Tuesday. The mercury's expected to drop to as low as 16 degrees in north Arkansas tonight. Temperatures in the middle to high 20s are forecast for central Arkanas. Arkansas i readings are expected to range from the high 30s to the low 30s.

At Least There Is One Thing Men Do Better Than Women- They Eat a Better Breakfast By HAL BOYLE ' NEW YORK Ml— Leaves . from an oddity almanac: Have you wasted some of the best years of your life brooding over how many grapes it takes to make a fifth of champagne? So many vineyard visitors asked this question the Taylor Wine Co. finally assigned a vintner to find the answer. He discovered there are 83 grapes on a cluster of Catawbas, the variety used.

Woodlands Improved by Farmers Improving their woodlands by girdling weed and cull trees to qualify for the ASC payment of $3.00 per cent acre has recently been carried out, by farmers and woodland owners cooperating with the Hempstead County Soil Conservation District.

These may spur the move toward a Big Four foreign ministers' conference a few months hence. While Soviet; behavior may be designed for propaganda purposes, a skeptical U. S. State Department is trying to discover whether the Soviets really may want to come to some agreements. The diplomatic maneuvering could be the cold war battle of the year.
