Marcn z& Housing and Home Finance Agen-President Eisenhower's nub-irv orhirh hanHi m t.h hniiinr pub lic housing program received a heavy blow today from the Repub lican-dominated House Appropria tions Committee, The committee recommended and the House usually follows its recommendations that the Presi dent's request for 140,000 units dur ing the next four years be scaled down to 35,000 units and be sawed off completely after two years. That is the number for which the government already has committed itself and made binding contracts, the committee noted. Democrats threatened a floor fight when the bill comes up in the House next week, but there seemed little likelihood that they! would be able to pick up many of the pieces In a message to Congress on Jan. 25, Eisenhower asked that the present public housing program be continued at a reasonable level." Specifically he requested approval of a four-year construction pro gram at the rate of 35,000 units a year. The Appropriations Committee put a limit of 20,000 on the number of new units that may be started in the coming fiscal year, begin ning July 1. and called for winding up the entire program in the fol lowing year with 15,000 additional units. Rep. Phillips (R-Calif), chair man of the subcommittee that drafted the bill, said the public housing program, started back In the Democratic administrations, has not worked out satisfactorily. "In many Instances," he said, "the people for whom these houses were intended haven't been able to occupy them. In some cases, political qualifications, rather than economic qualifications, appear to have been the yardstick." The committee vote to slash the President's program was 26-9, but there was no public breakdown. Among those supporting a mo tion by Rep. Yates (D-Ill) to authorize the full 35,000 units for the coming year was Rep. Canfield (R-NJ), who said he hoped the President would "reaffirm with emphasis his request for this program." I Moneywise. the committee! slashed $6,100,000 from the Presi-j dent's $77,000,000 public housing request for the coming year. For. slum clearance and urban redevel-i opment, however, it approved the full $39,000,000 requested. The committee commented that Freak Crash Sends Two To Hospital HATTTESBURG, Two men were hospitalized Friday afternoon as the result of Injuries sustained in a freakish smasbpup on High way 49 South, about 27 miles from here. State Highway Patrolman H. A. Murphy said Airman 2-c Homer L. Branton of Keesler Air Force base sustained possible concussion and internal Injuries, is in serious condition; that Thad Davis of Wig-pins suffered a broken knee-cap and lacerations of the lace. Both were taken to Stone county hospi tal In Wiggins. Murphy gave this account of the accident: A car driven by Lonnie Bond of Brooklyn, Miss., had gone out of control and run off the highway, Davis stopped to offer his assist ance. So did Charlie Bond of Lyman, driving another vehicle. Charlie Bond was trying to pull Lonnie Bond's car back on the highway while Davis directed traf fic. At this point BTanton's north bound car came aver a hill at the scene, and seeing three vehicles ahead of him Branton hit his brakes. His car went out of control, striking Charlie Bond's truck. Then Lonnie Bond's car and finally hitting Davis. $ Bride of 14 Given Back to Husband By Judge's Ruling MEMPHIS, Term., March 26 tf A teen-age husband won back his 14-year-old bride over her parents' angry objections today when a judge ruled he had no choice but to reunite the young cople. "They are legally married," ruled Circuit Judge Harry Adams "I have no choice. The marriage has been consummated." He acted on a habeas corpus petition filed by 18-year-old Thom as J. Murchison who eloped last month with Patricia Kurrus Murchison charged that Patri cia's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Clar ence J. Kurrus, had been holding the young bride a 'prisoner" in their home ever since they learned of the marriage a month alter the elopment. Patricia testified: She loved "Tommie," married him of her own free will, wanted to live with him, and was sure she could get along on his pay as a part-time mechanic. At the insistence of defense coun sel. Patricia reluctantly removed a wad of chewing gum from her mouth before undergoing cross-ex amination. Murchison beamed when Adams' ruling was announced. Patricia smiled faintly, but was weeping as flie started from the courtroom leaving her parents behind. Just as Patricia reached the doorway, Mrs. Kurrus started toward her daughter but was restrained by Kurrus. "No," he aid. 'Xet her alone." go, I .slum clearance is the only justifi- cation for the program. For the cy, which handles all the housing and slum clearance programs, the committee recommended $112,568,- 500, a cut of $6,331,500 from Eisen hower's request. In another action, the House Banking Committee approved a controversial proposal aimed at helping persons displaced by slum clearance projects buy new homes with no down payments and 40- year loans. Going beyond Eisenhower's original proposal, the committee ap proved Federal Housing Adminis tration insurance for such loans up to $7,600 in low-cost areas and up to $8,600 in high-cost areas. Eisen hower had proposed a top ceiling Of $7,000. The funds for public housing were part of a $5,566,118,763 bill financing a score of federal agencies and independent offices for the coming year. The total is $363,604,837 less than the President sought, and $375,168,400 below the amount received by the same agencies this year. The Atomic Energy Commission's budget was cut from $1,-342.000,000 to $1,189,960,700, a re duction of $152,039,300 but an in crease of $132,179,700 over- the amount received by the AEC this year. The AEC budget for weapons. reactor development and research programs were left untouched. Other agencies hit by the committee's pruning knife included the Veterans Administration, Tennes see Valley Authority, Small Busi ness Administration, the Executive Office of the President, Civil Serv ice Commission, Federal Commu nications Commission, Federal Trade Commission, General Ac counting Office, General . Services Administration, Interstate Commerce Commission, National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics, National Science Foundation, Securities and Exchange Commis sion, and Selective Service System. One of the few increases voted by the committee was for opera tion of the wnite House, rms iund was hiked from $1,800,000 to $1,- 895.000 because of a heavy In crease in tourist visitors Congressional Highlights WASHINGTON, March 26 GP The House Appropriations Com mittee today struck a heavy blow at President Eisenhower's public housing program. The President had recommended a four-year construction program totaling 140,000 units. Instead, the House group proposed to end the work after two years and 35,000 units. The limitation was contained ln a 5', i billion dollar appropriation for a score of federal agencies and offices, most of which received budget cuts. Other congressional highlights: TAFT-HARTLEY Eisenhower told" Congress that nothing in the Taft-Hartley law should prevent a state from dealing with any labor dispute that endangers the health and safety of its citizens. The pres ident added that his associates are still studying the complex problem of states rights in labor-management matters. MCCARTHY-ARMY Sen. Mundt (R-SD) said the search for a spe cial counsel to investigate the row between, sen. Mccartny (tt-wis) and Army officials had been nar rowed down to three men. There may be a delay in the start of hearings, he said. UN - AMERICAN Chairman Jackson (R-Calif) of a House Un-American Activities subcommittee predicted a perjury citation against "somebody" in connection with testimony about the activities of the Rev. John A. Hutchison, Wil liams College teacher of religion. Three witnesses told the group yes terday mat Hutcnison nad cooperated with Reds in the 1930's. This was contrary to Hutchison's previous testimony. Milner Is Selected For YPO Membership NEW YORK. March 26 R. E Dumas Milner, president of Milner Enterprises, Jackson, Miss., has been elected a member of the ex clusive Young Presidents Organi zation, the New York headquarters of the national group announced today.

Scott, president of the Jackson Association of Qualified Television Technicians, Friday expressed the association's appreciation to Jackson area television set owners for their patience and understanding when calling television technicians to replace tuning, strips in order, that interference-free reception might be received over CBS station WJTV, Channel 25. Mr. Scott states that due to the limited number of servicemen in Jackson it would take a few days to answer the calls that they had received, but assures set owners that their crews are exerting every effort to make replacements as quickly as possible. Mr. Scott also reminded set owners again that if interference is prevalent on their sets on Channel 25 the only thing necessary to correct the difficulty is to replace the present tuning strip with the new model strip which is being made available without charge to set owners. The only cost involved is the actual service call and this cost represents the lowest charge being made by any individual firm of the Jackson Association of Qualified Television Technicians. 164,500 Soldiers For Japan Army 6 Divisions To Be Defense Forces TOKYO. SATURDAY, March 27 UP) A high Japanese official said yesterday a defense force of six divisions will be set up, using modern U. S. weapons, and more officers of the old Imperial army w" .V ,,1 "il51,?8" Ior aaeranip. Keikichl Mashuhara, deputy di rector of the national safety agency, pointed out the fledgling army of the new postwar Japan will be civilian-controlled through a government agency as a safeguard against any return to the old mili tary system. But he said there had been a sharp rise ln "inexperience" as the defense group moved up from 75,000 to 123.152. Now that the total is to be boosted to 164,538 under the new military defense agree ment with the United States, he I said it will be necessary to "dip deeper in the officer pool of the old Japanese regular army." j At a news conference called to explain plans under the new U. S. I aid agreement, Masuhara said that presently only 50 per cent of 'ground force officers with a rank iof major and above have had pre vious military experience. About 60 per cent of the flag officers in the new navy were in Japan's World War II Imperial navy. Masuhara said Japan expects to get about 165 million dollars worth of military equipment from the United States during the fiscal year starting April 1. More than half will go to the ground forces. Japan will be marked off into six areas, each to be defended by a division consisting of three regi ments of infantry, a regiment of artillery, a battalion of infantry and a tank company. "In principle, previous approval of the Diet is necessary before de fense action can be taken, Masu hara said, "but in an emergency the Prime Minister can order de fense operations." He said the defense agency bill, now before the Diet, would create a new government agency under the Prime Minister for control of the forces and that its other members will be mainly civilians. But he added that a man "will not be left off by restriction simply be cause he is military, the night owl i By PINCKNEY KEEL i ' A word of caution to Jackson police!

Paul Ely Gets Promise In Washington WASHINGTON, March 26 (INS) The Defense Department said today that French Gen. Paul Ely is going home with the promise of 25 additional B-26 bombers for Indo-China. Ely left Washington today after six days of conferences with Secretary of State John Foster Dulles and Defense Secretary Charles E Wilson, a call on President Eisenhower, and talks with other officials. The Defense Department announced that as result of discussions of the Indo-China situation, Ely received the promise that the United States will supply the 25 additional B-26's on a temporary basis, as well a such items as ammunition and parachutes. Ely, chairman of the French joint chiefs of staff, was said by the Defense Department to have supplied the U. S. joint chiefs with first-hand informa tion on the problems of the French In Indo-China. " The Defense Department em phasized that the additional bomb ers, the transfer of which had been rumored for several days, "is a continuation of the regular military assistance program which has been U. S. policy for several years." The promise of new aid came as French officials expressed surprise and indignation at the declaration of Sen. Alexander Wiley H) Wis., chairman of the Senate For- Relations committee, mat toe must play balr. ln Indo. China to earn American assist- suice. The Senator, In carefully chosen words, said "if the French play ball in Indo-China, they will rot all necessary aid from the United States." A French official in Washington declared: "I think we are playing a deadly game over there in Indo-China and have thought we were both on the same side. "Frankly. I'm surprised by the statement." An American official, who emphasised that he had no - knowledge f exactly what Wt- ley meant, suggested the Senator might have been thinking either of the forthcoming Geneva conference on Korea and Indo-China or of French colonial policy. The U. S. official criticized French policy in Indo-China because, he said, the French have failed to give the Vietnamese a definite reason to fight the Communists. He noted: "Vietminh Communists have promised to end colonial rule by kicking out the French. "On the other hand, the French indecision on the exact nature of the French Union has bogged down the talks about Vietnam in dependence now going on in Par is." Stale Man Accused Of Assaulting Girl Ovett Man Denies Criminal Assault LAUREL Held in the county jail here since Wednesday night as a police investigation continued, a 20-ye&r old Ovett man is to be charged with criminally assaulting a 14-year old school girl there, County Prosecutor Pershing Sullivan said Friday. Sullivan identified the held man as Otho Morris and said the assault charge is to be filed in the circuit court at Ellisville. This county has two judicial districts and crimes committed in the south section come before the Ellisville circuit court. Circuit court ln the second district is held at Laurel. The alleged attack on the 14-year old girl occurred Wednesday night in an automobile parked on a lonely road outside Ovett, 20 miles south of here, the county prosecutor said. He said the accused man was seized by a citizen group at an Ovett tavern a few minutes after the girl reported to her mother that she had been criminally assaulted. Sullivan said Morris was carried by the group to the girl's home where she Identified him as her attacker, and was held there until the arrival of Laurel officers. Morris allegedly picked up the girl at an Ovett church and drove his automobile to the lonely road where the purported attack occurred, the county prosecutor arse rted. Following the alleged asault, the girl rode in the car with Morris, got out near Ovett and walked to the church where she reported to her mother, Sullivan declared. Both Morris and the girl underwent medical examination here Wednesday night. Morris has steadfastly denied the crime, the county prosecutor said. The accused man has employed Humphrey Moynihan, young criminal lawyer here as his defense counseL Except to say that his client denies the crime with which he is charged. Moynihan would make no statement. Conviction ot criminal assault ln a Mississippi court carries the max imum penalty of death. Morris is to be held pending ac tion of a circuit court grand jury, which convenes at Ellisville in June. Prosperity, Communism pntk iffli tnH jfi .rfSib piBik h - State Senator , Sounds Doom Of School Plan No Segregation Guarantee, Says ' Senator Stewart Senator Kenneth Stewart, Gills- burg, said here Friday that the opponents of the dual education program financing plan or the common schools of this state will not give way to "a move to meet the problem piecemeal as now proposed in the House 'of Representatives. "I cannot see the sensibility for deficit spending on a program which does not guarantee segrega tion In the schools, and I can tell you now that more than twenty senators will vote against financing such a plan until we know what the Supreme Court Is going to do," Stewart declared. He said that he had polled the senators in the upper chamber and that he found some 23 of them against accepting the House compromise, j "m fact," Stewart said, "it is not a compromise at all. It puts the program into effect and starts a deficit spending policy that we think is not to the best interests of the state." Stewart said that he and many other senators would go along with the dual education program if they had any guarantee the supreme court would uphold segregation. But, he objects to setting up an elaborate and expensive provision that would collapse in his opinion "if the supreme court rules against us, and that is what I think the court will do." , Stewart said that he would per sonally go along with an extra appropriation for teachers' salar ies, say $10,000,000 more than the $50,000,000 proposed for common schools, II the foundation program and the school building plans are deferred for a year or two until the supreme court finally acts on segregation. The House compromise, suggest ed by Representatives George Cossar, Tallahatchie; Lloyd McGe-hee, Marion and Joe Bailey, Yalobusha county, would appropriate $50,000,000 for common schools in the next biennium, then allow expenditure Of $34,000,000 to $35,000-000 for the next fiscal year. Deficits amounting to nine or ten millions would be paid through issuance of short term notes. This plan appears to be gaining in popularity in the House, but Sen. Stewart says it will meet a stone wall in the upper chamber where the minority opponents claim to have enough votes to block bringing the oppropriation up for consideration. Two Jacksonians Hurt In Wrecks Two Jacksonians were injured Friday night in separate accidents. Mrs. R. A.

S. Su preme Court decisions, an adverse edict by the tribunal on the segre gation in schools issue. As a consequence, he said that he feels the legislature ought to go ahead and finance the dual education program adopted last Fall, declaring that the present fight against new revenues is tao late. He said another special session of the legislature on education is inevitable, anyway. Quoting from a supreme court decision by the late Chief Justice William Howard Taft, Gov. White said that "Taft made it clear that the right of governing schools is within the power of the state. "The Supreme Court has many times recognized that there is a difference of status betweerw a citizen of a state and the obligations, of the state and the citizens of the United States and the obliga-ions of the federal government," White declared. "I cannot for the life of me see how the U. S. Supreme Court could conscientiously strike down segregation in schools under terms of the 14th , amendment," White said. "Especially do I say this, since the court has itself in the past held in many rulings that schooling is the state's right." He cited from the record that Former Chief Justice Taft in a controlling opinion said that "it is clear that the right to control its schools belongs to the respective states." This specific ruling was, oddly enough, handed down in the case of a suit brought oby "a Chinese several years ago, at Rosedale, Miss., the hometown of Speaker Walter Sillers of the House of Representatives. White, commenting on the stalemate in the state legislature over finances, said that he believes the deadlock will be broken, possibly next week. The governor said that he believes the House appropriations committee will report out favorably next week a plan to spend $35,- WS LI -TV Starts Its Operations Saturday At 12 o'clock noon Saturday, (today), Jackson's newest television station WSLI-TV, Channel 12, will begin telecasting from it's new and ultra-modern studios lo cated on Robinson Road extension in Van Winkle. -Representing an Investment of over half a million dollars, this new 'service of the Standard Life program of the American Broadcasting Company, as well as the to viewers in a large area the of the American Broad-casting Co best in local and filmed programs. "No expense has been spared in assembling the finest in tech nical equipment to assure the greatest coverage and the finest picture quality possible. Beaming it's signal from the 700-foot tower located adjacent to its studio transmitter building with a power of 214,000 watts oi eiiective radiated power, WSLI-TV will reach a large number of viewers and bring to many people, programs not previously available." says Mr. Sepaughm, General Manager. After a very briel opening cere Rulings 000,000 on schools in the next fiscal year, using short-term notes to pay the some $9,000,000 deficit for the new year under this plan. "As you know, we have a bud get recommendation for $50,000,000 for the next biennium," White said. "This budgetary request is based on the foreseeable revenue. "Thus, we could only spend $25,000,000 from the general fund because that would be al Ithat would be available from tax col lections. Therefore," the governor explains, (l) We would have to begin late next year to issue the short-term notes. "Of course, if we could get the legislature to assess the one-cent increase in the cigaret , tax, and a one-half cent hike in the sales tax. this would pay off the bill and we might not have to issue the notes at all." GM&O Will Appeal Louisiana Ruling BOGALUSA, La., March 26 (INS) The Gulf, Mobile and Ohio Railroad today sought an injunction against the order of the Louisiana Public Service ommission ordering it to resume "Little P.e- bel" train service in Louisiana. The commission directed the railroad to resume the service between New Orleans and Slidell, La., yesterday at hearings in Boga-lusa. Y. D. Lott. Mobile, Ala., counsel for the railroad, said that in addi tion to seeking the injunction, the railroad may appeal to the commission for reconsideration.. The railroad claims it lost ap proximately $186,000 a year for many years in operating the "Little Rebel," hence its desire to cancel out the run of the tram. The G. M. & O. won its fight in Mississippi to abandon the "Little Rebel", which ran from New Orleans to Jackson, Tenn.

March 26 111) GOP Na tional Chairman Leonard W. Hall said today that the tussle of Sen. McCarthy (R-Wis) with the Army has hurt, then said the prime 1954 campaign issues would be the economic well-being of the nation and the "never ending" battle with communism. The dispute has hurL Any dis pute hurts," he said ln an interview. McCarthy has done more hartal than good," Hall added. "His Senate effectiveness has diminished in the past few weeks." Hall picked the top campaign is sues in an address prepared for delivery tonight to a Republican audience and advised his listeners that the key to victory for his party is getting out the vote. He spoke before a dinner for the Midwest and Rocky Mountain Republican State Chairmen's Assn. meeting Friday and Saturday, and their guests. "On the first score," the eco nomic well-being of the nation-Hall said, "I believe the Eisenhower administration's program, now moving through Congress is aesigneo to Keep us sound economically by building more industry, more jobs, and a healthy agriculture. "At the same time it contains ample safeguards against economic emergencies. Remember this: In 1952 when the country was undergoing its pre -Korean adjustment, the Truman-Democrat administration covered its eyes. "So the opposition's present jitters, apparently, are a delayed case of the shakes four vears late. You will note that the Eisenhower administration doesn't have the jitters. Strong, well-prepared people aren't prone to this nervous ailment." Referring to "the never ending battle against communism both at home and on the global front," xia.ii saia: "We have at long last developed a truly American foreign policy which meets the overseas Communist threat head-on and lays the responsibility where it belongs in the laps of the Russians. Meanwhile at home we have both the willingness and the know-how for dealing with Communist-inspired subversions." In his address. Hall gave five reasons for saying the Republi cans cannot only hold our pres ent margin in the House but give the President a useful extra ma jority in the Senate as well." He listed these as: 1. "The Eisenhower proeram. based on welfare of all Americans, is a sound program. 2. "It doesn't hoodwink the people with trickly-gimmicked pack ages or political goodies. 3. "It is a program that we and our children and their children can afford. 4. "It is designed to carry the nation farther than just to the next election. 5. "It has courage and decency.' Earlier Hall said in the interview that a big issue in the forthcoming campaign "is the score card of the Eisenhower administration." As to the farm program, he said he is getting opinions on it and he is sure that Congress will provide a good program.
