ArboKast WASHINGTON, Aug. 3. (if> - ^ptonie major alterations appeared In store today for the Arms-to- Europe bill. The House Foreign Affairs committee called » closed-door huddle to hear from two men who are supposed to know all the details ol the $1,450,000.000 programs lo help Atlantic pact and other nation.! erect a wall of weapons against Soviet agi-esslon. The witnesses are Maj. Gen. Lyman Lemnitzer of th> Army and Dr. Lloyd W. Berkner of the State Department. Committee sources described them as "the men who helped draft this plan and know all the ans\vers." The committee already has received general endorsements of the plan from high administration officials and military men. The testimony they gave dealth largely with generalities and stressed the need to strengthen friendly nations •gainst Soviet advances. Rep. Vorys (R-Ohiol and most of his Republican committee colleagues as well as some Democrats said they aren't willinr. on the basis of eTidence to date, to approve the entire prOftarm. Vorys wants it cut about in half and put on an interim basis while the Atlantic pact nations ate work- Ing out military agreements. [Ie also wants an ironclad guarantee that the arms .sent abroad will oe used in a coordinated program il war comes. M The Senate Foreign Relations Committee postponed from toda' until nest Monday its hearings on the arms program after Secretary of State Acheson and Secretary '] Defense Johnson conferred behinc closed doors with the Foreign Committee and the Armed Services Committee. The two groups handle the bill jointly in Senate. Senator Vandenberj (R-Michl top GOP member of the Foreign Relations Committee, reportedly told Acheson and Johnson that the President's program won't be ap proved in 1« . present . foi'in. Vt,-.- dtntterg was represented 'as feeling that the bill goes too far in delegating powers to the President. Republicans made clear that they do not want to kill the program: entirely 'and favor some military assistance to friendly nations. They »ay they don't like the scope or the cost of the President's plan.

Mr. Johnson said that 31 of the 40 entries were secured dur'ing the first ~we*k of the drive and that during thelpast week nine more had been added. The number oi registrants exceed by 17 the number of last year, and the number entered during the first year was also 23.

Many Plant S-1WI Soybeans E. E. Chandler, assistant county agent and chairman o! the Jaycee contest committee, said todav that .-.everal of the-entry fields this year were S-100 beans, a variety that has not been produced extensively in Arkansas before, arid was developed in Missouri about two years ago. Mr. Chandler said that less than 12 farmers in Mississippi County last ye>ir had planted S-100. and that it had shown a marked increase this year. He pointed out that one of the aims of the contest was to help soybean producers develop varieties most suited to this land. In thi.s connection he said that in previous contest years Ogden and Ogden Dortchsoy varieties had been the best j-ielding beans The S-100 soybean is said to mature about 10 days earlier lhan the other varieties, and Mississippi County farmers are awaiting production and yield flgxirrs to compare this -with other varieties. The certified seeds for S-IOO soybeans were not available to breeders until last year. State's Farmers 1949 Income Tops Figures for '48 LITTLE ROCK. Aug. 3.
