PAGB EIGHT BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWB SATURDAY, DBC. IT, 1MI Ike's Proposals Should Reflect Southern Backing, Mundt Says By EDWIN B. HAAKINGON I WASHINGTON (ft— Southern state backing of President-elect Elsen- hower in the Noy. 4 election should be reflected In his legislative proposals to the new Congress, Sen. Mundt (H-SD) said today. In an Interview, Mundt predicted the 83rd Congress, which convenes ons week from today, will reach Its major decisions through "a working combination of Republicans and Southern Democrats." Although the session will be Republican-controlled, he snld, any legislation projected by Elsenhower "must depend uixm support ol conservative SouUiorn Democrats." If Mundt is right — and many members of the new Congress agree with him—any broad civil discrimination or fair employment rights measures, like federal anil- practices commission (PEPC), in President's Truman's admlnl.v would have as lough sledding as tration. Mundl's views attract attention because he was a pioneer as early as 1949 In the Republican drive for voting support In the traditionally Democratic Solid South. Elsenhower reaped a rich vote harvest last month by carrying Texas, Florida, Virginia and Tennessee in the presidential election. Mundt said (his political (act should be reflected in the Eison- Doughter of a Former Millionaire Is Arraigned as 'Grandma Bandit' 1 LOS ANOEI/BS W1 — An ailing 52-year-old woman, daughter of a onetime New York millionaire, has been arraigned as the "grandma bank bandit." , ., • Mrs. Ethel Ar«ta said yesterday at her arraignment before U.

Mrs. Arnta presided over several of the parties. Her father lost his hower legislative proposals. "for nearly four years the actual majority In Congress has cut •cross party lines," (he Republican senator said. "It has consisted of Republicans »nd Southern Democrats." He added, speaking of the upcoming nesston: "The margins In both the Benale and House are so thin that major decisions will depend upon Demo cratlo support." Republicans will have a hairline majority in. the new Senate with 48 of the 86 seats. There are 41 Democrats and 1 Independent Morse of Oregon. In the House ,lhere will be 221 Republicans, 211 Democrats, 1 Independent and 2 Democratic vacancies. ' Mundl said *.
