Hawks, manager of the ^Arkansas Poultry Federation, that [Arkansas' -gross income from . ^ Ury in 1954 was 6 million less |tlian in 1953, Mr. Shannon originally 'wrote that the sales tax at one-half cent per pound figured $78,525, and without it the industry would have still run $5,921,472 less than in 1953. The tax figure should have been $785,250 — not $78,525 — and the deficit under 1953 with the tax off consequently $5,214,750. not $5,821,472. || JTor the sake of the record we are • repeating the same correction the Tpemocrat made, and if you are ^keeping a file on this matter your -attention is directed to this correction today.

Young, Jr., By WALTER LOCAL UP Staff Correspondent Oislafatches from Taipei and Washington indicated today a major new crisis was developing in the Formosa strait that could involve the United States. Nationalist newspaper in Taipei said Red China had stationed at least 40 Russian-built MIG-15 jet fighters at newly completed Luchiao airfield, bringing American-defended Formosa within striking range for the first time. Washington dispatches .said the Eisenhower administration was under increasing pressure to permit the Chinese Nationalist to 'bomb Red airfields in the mainland before the Communists can build up aerial superiority. High Nationalist officials did not confirm the reports of MIGs riving at Luchiao but said "the Communssts have completed Luc- hiao and it is highly possible they have stationed planes 'there. They also reported an airbase nearing completion at Foochow, 35 miles from Matsu. Once MIGs are there, they said, a battle will begin for control of : a strait. 1,100 Get on Welfare Rolls During March Abolishes Job Given to E.

The law required relatives to contribute to the support of persons who otherwise would be dependent on relief payments. The welfare rolls listed 67,201 persons March 1 and 68,329 April. Adams said the increase was seasonal. Gov. Orval Faubus said he didn't think the 300 additions as a result of the repeal, for which he campaigned, was eycessive. He said, too, that he didn't believe the increase would continue at the present rate.

W) —Police still questioned today the pretty blonde widow of an oilman who before his death accused her of luring him into marriage. The officers were working hard, they said, on the story of an ex- convict who told them three months ago that a woman guaranteed $10,000 and jewelry if William P. Clark were slain in a robbery. The three-time loser, Harry Huggins, said he and two other men went to the Clark's home May 22, 1953, with the ex-convict posing as a messenger. Huggins' statement involved Leroy (Tincy) Eggleston, 48, a well-bnown gambler. Dist. Judge Dave McKce set a habeas corpus hearing today for Mrs. Clark, Eggleston and a former Fort Worth police cletectve, whose identity has not been divulged. Huggins, 48, told police that Clark was shot behind the ear by one of the trio while he and the other man were searching the house. He said he asked the man who remained with Clark why lie shot the oilman, "That was part of the deal," the former convict said his companion renlied.
