Zerelda heard the ring of the norses hoofs on the frozen dirt of the front drive. One thing about rrierl you could always depend on, John Mimrns no less than any oth er: They never failed to show up at suppertime. When she heard the quick light ness of the booted tread on the snowcrust of the rear stoop, she knew it was not John Mimms, but when the hesitant knock came a moment later she answered it. "Jesse! Cousin Jesse!" "Shh!" Jesse put an exaggerated finger to his lips, stepped grinningly past her, heeled the cur tained door quickly shut!. "You want to scare up every Pinkerton in Clay County? "Oh; Jesse, Jesse!' The tearr came 'then and the clumsy humoi of his entrance was washed em barrassingly away in their'fall. "Hush, Zee, honey. Don't cry like that. Now. please!'

He called a letter released last Sunday by Walter Von Tresekpw, a New York financial consultant, "wrong and irresponsible." The let tcr sharply criticized the Dixon- Yates contract. Van Tresckow said Dixon Yatos which contends it won't make raore than 9 per cent profit, ac- fikUy will clear profits of 100 to 200 per cent. The letter asked the Senate- House Atomic Energy Committee to give the Dixon-Yates contract a "ithorough airing."

In reply -to the charge that facts in its bid for the contract, ^xon says Von Treschow "never consulted on his figures with us' or anyone connected with this project.

Lawton Collins has reported to the government that Premier Ngo Dinh Diem faces grave and perhaps insurmountable difficulties to stay in power in South Viet Nam. • Diem is bitterly opposed by -three religious sects seeking his ^ouster, and the French would like to see replaced on the ground that is government lacks strength to unify the Communist-menaced country. . j However, his regime has had the lull support of the United States, and there were no indications of a change in that policy despite the reported gloomy appraisal by Gen. Collins, President Eisenhower's special envoy. Collins, who returned last Thursay for consultations, reported in 'ecret yesterday to the Senate and House foreign policy committees. Afterwards, a senator who heard his report said the situation was "not hopeless" but tha Collins felt that "stronger leadership" was nedeed to keep Southern Viet Nam from chaos. 20 to 22; robbery from 126 to 210; aggravated assault from-317 to 310; burglary from 1,369 to 1,491 and larceny from 2,945 to ,026 The FBiajsts of cities, with more than 25,00^ "pbpulatibninclnaed^the following four in Arkansas with 1954 figures: Fort Smith — murders 3, robbery 12, aggravated assault 84, burglary 275, larceny 427, auto theft 44, Hot Springs — murders 0, robbery 20, aggravated assault 2, burglary 142, larceny 192, auto theft 24.

The proposal, made during a meeting of southeast Asia treaty •^•ganizaition mjlitt'iy planners, called for an army "bigger than the force which the United States had in the Southwest Pacific in World War II."
