(*>> The Interstate Commerce Commission la-si week Issued an order ol great importance to the future ot industry In Arkansas. The commission, In effect, called on railroads to propose freight rate schedules wiping out differentials which for years have worked to the disadvantage of southern and west- «rn states. Rep Oren Harris (D-Ark). welcoming the action, said that ever since the war between the states freight rates on finished products have worked to the advantage of the northeast Industrial area and to the disadvantage of Arkansas and other southern and western states. The effect of the freight rates. he said, was this: Southern raw products could Man Caught with 'Cyc/es' Down By BOB THOMAS ™ _,...

But It sneaked up on me and I found we were too lor on dancers. "And so I did something that wns i complete reversal of our usual policy. For years, we have done everything we can to discourage people from seeking to enter'extra work But this time : Issued publicity that we needed young dancers. I'm beginning to regret It now because we have been flooded with applicants. "Actually, w« don't need loo many dancers, except when there is a musical cycle .such as we're in now.

"Ten years ago. we averaged from 1.000 .to 1.200 extra Jobs a day," he casting official remarked "Today the average Is 401). For that reason we continue to pare don-,) our list every year. We drop who haven't earned much money through extra work, arguing Ihnt It Is for their own good lo get out of the bushier." Some extras can earn as much as M.OOO a year.

Prom the standpoint of cash income, Arkansas farmers are having a much better year than In 1950. A Department of Agriculture report on farm income from market- Ings of crops and live-stock shows that for the five-month January- May period this year Arkansas farmers received a total of $140811,000, compared with »106.2H,<XW for the corresponding period of 1950. Last .vear the Arkansas farmers wound up with a total of 1512,098.000, compared with »542,101,000 for 1949. The report pointed out that for .he nation as a whole farm income through May ot this year 1s 17 per cent above the corresponding period last year but that this Isn't a net gain to farmers since farm . coste on the average rose ij per M a censeijHeiice. Harris satd. in- | ce "'' dustrial and economic development I department said the gain in of the South was retarded livestock marketing receipts gene"We were held down by these """ rates and our economic development prevented to such an extent that many of our people moved away to other centers." Harris said. An Indirect Result One indirect result was that, due Jo a population decline. Arkansas has lost one of its seven seats In the House of Representatives Now the ICC order is a sreat th k r e rom "™"" the neck If the South and Southwest." Harris said. He recalled that the first step in breaking down the North-South thlate dlff " ential «m« i" with enactment of the trans- i,°l aCt '" which Congress blished the policy of an equni- rally reflected price gains. Crop marketings were off a little in volume, the report said, but this was more than offset by price rises. Up to June 1 this year, the report showed. Arkansas farmers received $75.081,000 frcm sale of livestock: anil $65.730,000 from crops, compared with M6.953.000 a year previous. Nothing comes close to beating out cotton as Arkansas' principal farm product. The report showed that in 1949 cotton lint returned Arkansas farmers «283,38o.OOO and in 1950 brought them $207,202.000.
