(AP)-The administration sent to Congress today a new arms-for-Europe bill shorn of provisions giving President Truman power t o decide when and where aid should be given.

The proposed outlay has been criticized sharply by both Republicans and Democrats in Congress. The new measure was submitted to the Senate by Chairman Connally <D-Tex> of the Foreign Relations Committee and to the House by Chairman Kee <D-W Va) of the Foreign Affairs Committee. Connally told reporters the new bill was drafted by Secretary of State Acheson and has the approval of Secretary of Defense Johnson. Connally disclosed the changes after members of his committee and the Senate Armed Services Committee had met with Acheson and Johnson. Mr. Truman told a news conference yesterday he did not care whether he gets authority which critics had claimed would have empowered him to give military aid to any country In the world under almost unlimited conditions. He did make a fresh demand for the full amour* of money asked however. The revamped bill spells out that rearmament assistance should be given to the nations which have signed the North Atlantic pact, to Greece and Turkey, Iran, Korea, and the Philippines. a Still Want Smaller Grant t There was no provision left, the original bill, to permit the esident to extend aid to any other nation he believed required help in the interest of United States security. "If the President has yielded on one major area of controversy, he can back. up on another," a top Republican on the House Foreign Affairs comfnittee told newsmen. ''He will have no choice. He will have to settle for a smaller amount »nd a more limited program." Republicans and a strong group of Democrats on the committee, which is considering legislation to ... £ive life tp_jhe program, said the_ President's ue'ui^ion not ^o press for 3 Hit broad powers originally requested "amounted to an admission that the entire program can be trimmed safely.

Cotton, which has been treated with anhydrous ammonia, showed better color, more fruiting, and ^duclng larger plants, than those h»t treated. plots. leaving four to six rows untreated near treated acre- ages, show a visible difference. It was indicated that further demonstrations were planned later tins month and it Is hoped that an actual boll -ount could be made to determine the effectiveness of the ?as in improving production.

Yugoslav Troops In Macedonia Alerted by Tito PrtmUr Sees Need To Protect Border Because of Rumors By Alex Slnf leian BELGRADE, Yugoslavia, Aug. 5. (AP)—Yugoslav troops were in a state of alert today to guard against what Premier Marshal Tito called provocations and Intimidation by his Soviet-dominated neighbors. Tanjug, the official news agency, last night quoted Marshal Tito as saying bloody clashes already had taken place in Macedonia. The stormy Balkan region lies between communist Bulgaria and Albania, with Greece on the southern border. Tito said his troops were in a "state of alert in order to safeguard the peaceful construction of our 50- cialls t country." The premier, who defied Soviet dictation a year ago in a row with the Cominform (Communist International Information Bureau), accused his eastern neighbors of try- Ing to' intimidate Yugoslavia by spreading rumors of a threatened Red army invasion. NEWSPAPER OF NORTHEAST ARKANSAS AND SOUTHEAST MISSOURI BLYTHEVILLE, ARKANSAS, FRIDAY, AUGUST 5, 1949 TEN PAGES but Tito called them "nothing ordinary rumors" but added: 'Nevertheless, we are not unvigl- lant, here either. . . We are prepared to prevent all provocations, to defend our country against everyone." In a slap at Moscow. Tito added Yugoslavia would defend the principles of Marxism-Leninism "even against the creators of these principles, should they go against them." Says Bk.txi Tanjug Been Spilled repotted the statements were mnde Wednesday in a speech to army and political leaders in Skoplje, Macedonia. Tito repeated previous statements that Yugoslavia would not sacrifice its Marxist Communism for Western friendship, then launched into his toughest talk to date against ha cominfoim neighbors. 'You are on a sector of defense of our country," he told the Macedonian leaders, "which is of great importance and on which provocations took place, where they are still occuring today and will probably take place In the future.. "You are in a state of alert In order to saieguard the peaceful reconstruction of our socialist; country. .. Competition Is Bulwark Of Democracy Competition can work where men live together as competitors but are guided by a spirit of co-operation. That Is what the Rev. Roy I. Bagey, pastor of First Methodist 3hurch, told members of the Blytheville Rotary Club yesterday when he spoke on the topic, "Com- petltion'with an Objective." The Rev. Mr. Bagley said the danger of socialism or communism pervading America's democracy lies mainly in the threat of people los- ng confidence In each other. This distrust, he said, may easily be fostered by dishonorable busi- iess practices. "For years upright businessmen have been hammering away at the unscrupulous few who lave tainted the name of business >y their practices. Ministers and churches naturally are Interested in the attitude busi- lessmen have regarding each other. Jishonest business practices impair luman relations. Some churches ire training men to go into the abor-management relations field to iclp bring about Christian practices on both sides. "As In sports, competition is desirable and Invigorating. A wholesome business relationship has a jood effect on the attitude of the entire community," he concluded. Guests at the meeting included Sam Swalm, Tuscaloosa. Ala • E A Williams, St. Louis. Mo.; and H Beasley, Little Rock.

Diplomatic officials in London said Prance, along with the United States, Britain and Canada, would be named to a supreme defense council to direct the military and strategic program of the 12-nation Atlantic alliance. The officials said this was one of the main topics under discussion by the staff chiefs. Here Is how the officials outlined it: Acceptance of the idea by Britain and Canada has been recorded and French approval was to have current Paris talks. $800 In Restaurant At Reelfoot Lake TIPTONVILLE.

But now comes the hard part. You the mother of a family, can have this disease, without being sick, and without a chance to know you have It. And you can give It to your child, or the child of your dearest friend. That child may become paralyzed, other children rljj get It but may show nothing. Yet thev too can spread It. Spread* MjsteriMtdy The medical consensus now Is that polio probably spreads from person o person, aided by some- hlng stm unknown. This unknown leaves the home apparently the most dangerous place for spreading polio. Worse than schools and gatherings, because you cannot close homes. And even If you could. th« I«mlly carrying the disease mlent not be Identified because its members appeared well. You and your children are likely to have polio virus in your systems during an -pldcmic. That leads to some of the things you can do. Keep out of crowds. That lowers the odds a little. Don't get chilled. Chilling has a technical meaning here. It is lowering your body temperature In the point where natural bod/ chemical reactions slow down. With this much chilling, polio Infection si- ready present, gets a better chance to start. Nobody, however, can tell why most of the polio comes In warm summertime. In chill winter there also Is considerable polio, but no epidemics. Don't get fatigued. Fatigue lowers your body's resistance too. There Is an added reason for avoiding fatigue. Over-exertion Is supposed to do Us worst damage during the early stages of polio. But your child can be In that stage without unyone knowing It. Ken> Keep Ckan clean.

That Is the way a polio attack mr.y start, To be sure the watching won't prevent polio, but this watchfulness might catch those precious early hours of the Illness, and really prevent some crippling And be glad that now there Is very much that you can do If your child gets polio, as the third article m UM ttrles will explain.
