BLYTHEVILLE COURIER NEWS XLVII—NO. 189 Blytheville Dally New« Mississippi Valley Leader BlyUievlUe Cornier Blythevill* Herald THE DOMINANT NEWSPAPER OP NORTHEA3T ARKANSAS AND SOUTHEAST MISSOURI •BLYTHEVILLE, ARKANSAS, THURSDAY, AUGUST .30, 1951 SIXTEEN PAGES School Will Begin Year only $4,109 *Short in Finances But Shortoge Will Soar Unless Tax Increase It Voted, Nicholson Says Blythevifle's public schools will begin the 1951-52 term Monday only ?4,109 short in finances provided the proposed 10-mill school tax increase is approved by the voters at the special election Sept. 25, according to School Superintendent W. B. Nicholson. Speaking at the weekly meeting ot the Kiwanis Club in Hotel Noble yesterday noon, Mr. Nicholson explained the school's financial situation and the necessity of the special election in which the school district i« asking that the school levy be increased from 30 to 40 mills. "Our estimated costs for the coming school year are $408,453," Mr. Nicholson said, "and our estimated receipts, assuming that ihe 40 milla&e will be approved by the voters will be $104.344." He explained that the estimated costs including an assumed additional increase because of the construction of the new school and costs of two additional teachers. Under legislation passed by the t.last General Assembly, the Blythe- Pi\Hle district is qualified to receive a lotal of $166,317 in stale aid, Mr. Nicholson said. This amount is for teacher salary and transportation aid and state apportionment. The school, superintendent said attendance in Blythevllle schools during the 1950-51 term qualified the district to employ a 135-teacher staff but that only 134 would be employed during the 1951-52 term.. The district last year employed 132 teachers, Mr, Nicholson said. ., He stated further that the district was not in a financial position to offer teachers salary raises for the next school year. "In fact." he said, "the teachers were forced to take a salary cut due to mi increase in withholding taxes." In Vpeaklnf of the special elec- lion,' the school superintendent said (hat he felt the 10-mill increase would be approved by the voters and added that failure of the voters to approve the increase would result in "some dire conse- quences" for th« city's school sy»- irm. In closing, Mr. Nicholson declared: "Some people feel that our schools have a lot of 'frills' that could be cut in order to lessen our expenses. They feel that we have some supervisors that we could do wilhout. They feel we could dispose of our band and music programs and get back to plain old reading, writing and arithmetic. "But we cannot cut our school program below what it Is now and still have a program which I am willing to try to carry out. We of the school believe in this program and it has met the approval of the experts." Jack Chamblin of Meridian, Miss., and Moe Herman of Memphis were guests at yesterday's meeting.

Both had been placed in a children's home soon after birth, adopted by different families and reared without knowledge of the other's existence. Each, without knowledge of the other, wrote the Tennessee Children's Home Society of Nashville, for information, about their original families. It was found that they were brother and sister and that another brother and sister existed but have not been traced. Both Placed In Home Miss Lucille Hubbard, foster daughter of Mr. and Mrs. E. T.

Aug. JO. '(/P) — •resident Truman today declined to indicate what plans the government may have for dealing with he nation-wide copper strike. When reporters Iried to draw him out on it at his news conference, Mr. Truman said he had not yet received a report from the Wage Stabilization Board. He said he couldn't comment until he knows what's in the board's report. Some government action scon was generally anticipated since :he office ot defense mobilization las said the strike is a serious threat to the mobilization program The Wage Stabilization . Board stepped out of the controversy late ast night after the mine, mill and smelter workers union refused to call oil the strike. Little Hope Kmnu! The board apparently found little lope ol breaking the deadlock which has halted most of the nation's production of copper, a critically short defense material. A spokesman said the board ivill report to Mr. Truman early todaj on the negotiations he asked it to take over on Tuesday, it held a 90- minute hearing yesterday, and discussed the case again last night. A possible next step would be for the President to appoint a board of .inquiry to report to him on the facts in the case, but such a boarc would have no authority to propose an actual peace settlement. The strike could continue while the board investigates. McGrath Must Wait And Attorney Generaf McGratki would have to wait until the boarc reported before he could seek a court injunction to end the walkouf under the Taft-Hartley Act. However, if the President should feel there is little hope of settlement and the walkout Is creating a national emergency he could bypasi See TRUMAN on Page I SINGLE COPIES FIVH CEHT» Red Radio Charges UN Planes Violate Kaesong 'Every Day' —Courier News Pliolo THREE SMALL FRY AND HOW T1IKY GREW— It would be a dull ad indeed who wouldn't relish the company of' young Jimmy McDowell nd his two playmates, "Duchess" the Collie dog and "Champion,' pony in miniature: Young McDowell, 41',; inches tall, manages just a ittle more height than his two friends as "Champion" stands 24 inches >ff the ground and "Duchess" is 23',-i inches tail.

He said that toll weevil damage i various sections of the state save Mississippi County some laborers last year that it ordinarily would not have gotten but that these can't be expected this year accause the weevil damage has not been as severe as it was last year.

The charge was rijecled into a series of broadcasts accusing Gen. Matthew B. Ridgway of lying, slander and distortion. The latest asserted violation was arly Wednesday. The badly garb- eel broadcast heard In Tokyo said in American bomber dropped a Kire over the site of the now suspended Korean War truce talks. The radio said it happened at ilmost the same time Kidgway flal- y refused to reopen an Investlgn- ion of Red charges that an Allied Jiane bombed Kacsong Aug. 22. reiplng called It an attempt "to cover up the flagrant lies that he landed the world." The broadcast made no mention of the U.N. commander's offer to •csume truce negotiations any time he Communists are willing to do so. He made the offer in the same note that refused to reopen invejtigation of the asserted bombing. Top Red commander. 1 ;, to whom the mcbsnge was addressed, had not replied. There was no indication when they would. In its sweeping accusation, the Peipiug radio said as many as 43 American planes had flown over the Kaesong neutral zone in a single day. The neutral area extends for a five mile radius around Kae- song. FIlRhts Were "Incessant" "American aircraft," the broadcast asserted, "have incessantly, illegally and constantly flown into tho> sky over the neutral zone. The radio devoted most o! its tcntion to attacking Ridgway. The Communist attitude tended to support ft-theory the Reds wanl to delay a decision on Korea until after the Japanese Peace Treaty conference in San Francisco. Peijmig's broadcasts dampened cautious optimism expressed in press release from General Ridgway's headquarters. The release suggested the Rei proposal to reinvesligate the Kae- song bombing charge "may contain some_ hope for resumption" truce talks,. Communists broke "n^c tip tion s Aug. 23. a few "Hour, atter they said a U.N. plane bombed be (held).

(AP)—President, Truman said today the congressional effort, to cut $1.000,000,000 from his $3,500,000,000 foreign aid request, is misplaced economy when success of the program is In sight. The President told a news con- they certainly are and added he ere nee lhat prospects of rcstor- ng the proposed cut looked rather lopcless and it is a very serious iUiation. He also told reporters: 1. United Nations forces in Korea are stronger now than when the Kaesong truce talks began. 2. The case of William N.

Fie then went on to say it is a pity to upset the whole applecart in the interest of misplaced economy just on the veige of success. He contended the economic Improvement of Western Europe would be immensely aided under the full program. He added it also it needed to speed the rearming ol Europe. Fie was nskcd if U.
