Aluminum Supply ' Is Assured LITTLE ROCK W)— Gov. Faubus said today that Sen. J. W.

S. Senate and cot,on state .senators began looking :oday for a way to revive the leg- slation. However, Sen. Ellender (D-Lal, chairman of the Senate Agricultural Committee, told a reporter 'As far as I am concerned there s no chance. It was late a? it was and now there is no time." After days of conferences, corn- arising and contention, the Senate ate yesterday rejected a bill to increase the amount of cotton acreage the states get this year under federal control program, The bill, also would have increased the 1955 acreage for wheat. The vote was 51-39 against the measure, which would have boosted each state's cotton and wheat acreage by 1% per cent. That would have meant 272,000 extra acres of cotton and 800,00 more acres of wheat. Southern Democrats generally blamed Republicans for defeat of the bill. Sen. Stennis (D-Miss) told reporters: "The Republicans have been dragging their feet on the bill and just voted against it they haven't been for a cotton bill from the very first." Thirty-eight Republicans and 13 Democrats combined to beat the bill. Thirty Democrats and nine Republicans voted for it. Ellender said the bill was defeated because its cotton provisions were changed from recommen dations of the Agriculture committee. The committee proposed an increase of 169,000 acres and recommended that all of its go to give small farms a, minimum of four acres. Senators from western cotton states objected to this plan. They held out for an increase uri- er which all states would .get the same percentage. In an effort to consoliate ' cotton state views. Sens Stennis and McClellan OD-Ark) proposed -the l'/ 2 per cent plan and it was accepted. "The only excuse for this addi tional cotton acreage was to protec the small farmer, to correct a bac social situation," said Ellender. "When we departed from thai formula, that spelled defeat. There was nothing left to do but kill the City of Hope 80 Years Old On February 19, 1875 a petition bearing the names of many residents was filed in the office of Capt. Thomas H. Simms. circuit and probate clerk, and on March 25, 1875 this petition was acknowledged and Hope became an incorporated town. Thus this city starts its 81st year today. Colorado had winds up to 50 miles an hour. Carl Gustave Koch, 38, of Windsor, Colo., died in r two-car accident caused- by slick highways. Even as the storm moved southward, leaving Montana skies clear for the first time in three days, the Weather Bureau reported another would hit that state late today, again bringing' blizzard conditions. Montana temperatures dipped to -26 at Helena and -15 at Great Falls early today Both are all- time lows for the date. Snow depth was spotty. The top mark was 9 inches at Cody, Wyo. By midnight 6 inches were on the bill. "There were too many greedy people on the Senate floor — all wanted extra acreage.' If Southerners had stuck witl the committee version of the bill he said, "We would have won." Stennis said that while he doesn' concede the bill is completely deac "prospects are dim." Other South erners agreed. Stennis said he planned confer ences today with leaders in both parties to see what can be done However, he said cotton planting already is under way in much of the South and by the time new legislation could be pushed through time might have run out.
