Proposal to Cut Kids Milk. Lunch Vetoed B!yth«vlll« (Ark.) Courier News - Friday, April », W«- Page Thr* . By WILLIAM F. ARBOGAST WASHINGTON (AP)- President Johnson's proposals for cuts in spending for some popular domestic programs — such as free school lunches and milk—ran afoul of the House Appropriations Committee today. In a move expected to be upheld by the House, the com- mittee refused to approve cuts of about $128 million proposcc by the President. Its recommendations were included in the annual appropriation bill for the Agriculture D& partment, which the House wil: consider next Tuesday. 'Hie bill's total of $6,909,027,000 to operate the department for the fiscal year starting July Daily Record Weather V. S. Weather Bureau Agricultural Service Keiser, Ark. Cloudy skies are a common feature over Arkansas this morning. Freezing temperatures of Thursday morning in extreme Northwest Arkansas were replaced by minimum temperatures in the mid 40s this morning and the frost danger is over for the foreseasonable future. The disturbance in Colorado will move out into the Plains loday and tonight and increasing shower activity is scheduled over the state beginning this afternoon and going through Saturday. Yesterday's highs ranged from the low and mid 60s in Die sunny northwest to 50s elsewhere under extensive cloud cover. Overnight lows were in the mid 40s to low 50s. As expected soil temperature drops at the two- inch depth were very notable yesterday. Keiser dropped from an average of 64 Wednesday to 55 yesterday. Similar drops were noted at other stations over the stale. Very little warm up is anticipated in soil temperatures loday and additional rain will lend to keep these temperatures on Ihe cool side. The anticipated cool, wet weather over the weekend will be a poor environment for prematurely planted collon seed and considerable seed rot is likely to lake place.

The committee proposed the use for general purposes of some departmental revenues which normally would have reverted to the Treasury, These revenues come mainly from the department's 30 per cent share of customs collections. The committee took-these actions: Added $82 million to the $21 million requested by the President for the special milk program which provides free milk for poor children anu milk at a nominal charge for other school children. Added .$19 million lo the $138 million requested for the school lunch program which provides lunches free or at low cost. Upped Ihe budget requests by $26,894,000 for research, plant and animal disease control, soil survey and watershed programs and for payments to state agricultural experiment stations. The committee said the increases it recommended would continue the programs at close o current year levels. The President had proposed hat the special milk program be limited to needy children.

For example a patch of metal not customarily found on submarines could help wide-roaming squadrons of porpoises identify friendly craft. Any craft not bearing this patch would be subject to ramming by the por- joises, trained to carry explosives in body harnesses. This new achievement of the sleek, 200-pound mammals was disclosed Thursday at a marine science symposium of the American Institute of Acvonau- tics and Astronautics, which also goes in for aquanautics. Researchers W. E. Evans and B. A. Powell of the U.S. Naval Ordinance Test Station at China Lake, Calif., showc' 1 films of porpoises trained to pick out a plastic-encased panel of copper from identical-looking panels of aluminum and other materials. When they touch the right panel they get a piece of fish. "We're not certain how they do it," Powell said in an interview, "but apparently it's another discrimination capability of their built-in, natural sonar." Porpoises can spot food and other objects even when blindfolded by emitting "creaking- door" noises. Reflected sound waves tell them distance and direction of the objects. A much cruder electronic system is the basis of the Navy's underwater sonar. "We've tried our best to confuse the porpoises," Powell said, "by using panels of the same size but different thick- nesses. So far they've scored 100 per cent." Powell said the brainy mammals' hearing apparently is so acute they can tell the minute differences in reflection by materials of varying density, regardless of thickness.
