While shopping around for American capital and more technical aid, Lumumba is also expected to review the explosive military situation in the Congo with United Nations Secretary-General Dag -lammarskjold. HflmmarsVjold canceled plans to leave Sunday for the Congo ft here the U.N. has been funnel- ng in a police force and announced he would remain In New York to see Lumumba. Lumumba has been busy bolstering his m.tion's economy, but ts political status remained d a n - .erously unsettled.

"Don't worry about breaking your child's spirit," Judge Price old Leland Rotarians Friday, 'you won't break it, you'll have o work hard just to mold that spirit into what it should be." Mrs. Price described one recent case in which a boy in his early teens who had received absolutely no parental restrictions threatened police officers with a nstol ss'hen they took him to vis- t his desperately ill mother be- ore taking him to the Training School at Columbia.

Lightning, and in some cases man himself, was responsible for the fires that caused damage in the millions of dollars and cost j m o r e millions to fight. In California alone, the loss was some 10 million dollars. A note of cautious optimism, tempered by a 50-50 chance for more lightning in the pivotal point where Oregon, Idaho and Wash ington meet, crept into official reports. Temperatures were in the 90s. The fire outbreak was de scribed as the worst in 30 years, The dead included two-man crews of two World War II bombers converted for borate-bombing runs over the fires and another pilot killed making a water drop over a British Columbia fire. One B26 crashed in eastern Oregon and the other in Southern California. DR. PARKS' HEALTH NEWS C H I R O P R A C T I C R E S E A R C H A careful compilation and examination of 99,976 actual cases of sidsness handled by Chiropractors indicated three obvious conclusions as to (he value of spinal therapy in regaining health. ., First: there is a definite relationship between faulty posture in the back and normal distribution of spinal nerve force. Second: that correction of faulty back posture does something which causes a beneficial change in the disease condition. Third: That the disease and conditions showing decided improvement or complete elimination were not confined to any limited category. This survey by the Chiropractic Research Bureau establishes beyond confradition t h a t the segments of the spinal column are out of normal alignment in more than 89% of the cases where dit«as« is discovered in the functions or organs of the body. Correction ol faulty position of ths segments showed evidence of arrested progress in the disease. PARKS CHIROPRACTIC CLINIC 127 SOUTH HARVEY PHONE ED M809, Rts.

Judge Price reminded Rotarians that American family life has changed in the past 25J years from a close knit group to! one where little parental supervision is given children, in far too many cases. Barneti Against Coast Gambling GULFPORT, Miss. (AP)-Cov. Ross Barnett Saturday indicated he will oppose any form of gambling on Mississippi's Gull Coast. In a telephone interview with Rocky---r (Continued from page one) and housing, schools and jobs. It vill express support for the objectives of the sit-in demonstrators and will commend the action of those businessmen who have abandoned the practice of refusing to serve food at their lunch counters to their Negro customers and will urge all others to follow their example." National Security Rockefeller said he and Nixon agreed on the need for a post to assist the President in the whole area of national security and in- ernationat affairs, as well as a similar post for domestic prob- MTIS. Rockefeller said agreement also lad been achieved on a defense policy to strengthen armed forces unity and enable the nation to counter both small local wars and atomic attacks. He added that he and Nixon fa vored a vigorous program to sring about groupings of nations in the free parts of the world. They both concluded Rockefeller said, that the national economic growth must be stepped up to bly opposed to gambling in any form, public or private." Earlier in the week, Harrison County Sheriff Curtis Dedeaux had given the green light to private club gambling in the county. However, the s h e r i f f said he would not allow gambling on a "commercial scale." Barnett wouldn't say what action his office will take if private clubs start gambling On the coast. ·I cross that to "'" the brklge when eoverno!: de Warns Livestock Owners; Prepare For Winter Feed Associate County Agent G. A. Vanderford Saturday warned ivestock owners to prepare for short winter pastures by saving every blade of grass and other Feed now growing. "If this dry spell continues we may be in bad shape next winter unless we lake care now," said Vanderford. He suggested that roughage on turn rows, ditch banks, shoulders and drainage ditches of roads and should be mowed and baled for use this winter. Also, oat straw should be preserved for roughage. Although its nutritional value is low, it can rneet^mounting defense costs and^ fed with protein concentrates for an adequate winter ration. He also reminded livestockmen they car. secure cotton seed hulls now for winter feeding at more favorable prices than they can later in the season. Lake Village Man Named To County FHA Committee LAKE VILLAGE - Herman C. Berkemeycr of Lake Village has the demands of an ever-increasing population. Rockefeller and Nixon proposed aiding the farmer with a program of price supports and faster disposal of food surpluses, the governor said. Other recommendations, he added, included a program for im proved ways to resolve labor disputes endangering the national welfare, and increased federal aid for education. It was a compromise. Rockefeller worked in some of his most been appointed a member of the cherished language, but the docu-jFarmers Home Administration ment seemed hardly to deviate injcounly committee. The announce-j any important respect from the:ment was made by Thomas B. Eisenhower administration line on these key issues. Nixon said he would use the Eisenhower record as a base and build upon it. The compromise appeared to be a start in that direction. The platform must still be adopted next week by the Republican convention, of course. But the agreement of the two Titans of the party seemed to make that a foregone conclusion. Auto Fire Put Out Saturday Headquarters Fire Engine Company No. 4 put out an automobile fire in the 100 block of North street late Saturday. The flames, caused by a backfire, burned electric wires of :hn car owned by Sheode Wigfall. Firemen quickly extinguished the flames. The run was made at I 4'03 o m i Breckenridge, Cliicot County Supervisor of the FHA. Two other members make up the three member committee which works with the county sti- I pervisor to see t h a t the best possible use is made of the agency's farm credit service program con- istcnt with local farmers' needs. Other members of the committee are Charlie D. Barnes of Dermott and Stuart M. Cook of Eudora. Each member is appointed for a 3-year term. Bcrkemey- er succeeds J. A. Smith whose term had expired. MRS. LUCE ILL NEW YORK (AP) _ t u u n i y - - - - (Contlnued from page one) by art Independent ticket-- nothing gained by a third party. "1 think all of us, before makilnf any decision, slroutd see what the Republicans will come up with. It may be that they will hive a platform 1 thnt will be rnore satisfactory to Mlsslsslpplans-- I'm not predicting it, but it's a possibility." J. A. Oglesby ol Lake Jackson said he had given th« matter much thought and was still undecided. "I can hardly itomach what we got from the Democrats," but he felt bolting the party would cost Mississippi congressmen seniority and under those circumstances we should not try a third party." The choice may come to voting Republican or staying home, he said. Freedom Of Choice James Robertshaw of Greenville felt a third parly slate would bo "ineffectual. If th« national party i n s i s t s on trying to ram a r e p u g n a n t platform on the people of Mississippi, they should exercise their freedom of choice between the Democrats and Republicans. A third party jeopardizes the standing of our representatives in Congress, but if we vote for another major party our state would be no different from any other state which does the same thing." Waiting For GOP Sam Neill of Leland said he was waiting to see what the Republicans do, and hasn't made up his mind yet. "I don't think I can support the platform or r.omiees of the Democratic Party." Not only the civil rights plank, but the fiscal plank of the Democrats bothered him, with impending inflation. But he had no set opinion yet on a third party or independent electors. Leo Stevens of Glen Allan said he would go along with tha rest of the committee on whatever il decifles and hasn't made up his mind yet. "But T would oppose a third party if it jeopardizes our congressmen's position in Washington." Tom I'ittman of Lake Washington said that "frankly I'm against a third party-- that is not the answer". He said he couldn't "see the Democratic platform- still I hope we don't go Republican again-- I just don't know." W. A. Branton of Avon agreed the Democrats "haven't much to offer," but he didn't think a third party is the answer. "I haven't made up my mind." N. D. Williams of Wayside said, "I don't think I'd be in favor ol a third party . . . I haven't talked to any of the others." Other than that he was undecided. Charles Dean Jr. of Lelanc said he did not feel qualified to make a statement. Hilton Waits of Leland was out of town unti Monday; J. Hale Wilson Sr. is in a .Memphis hospital.

Long ran for the eighth congressional district seat against Incumbent U.S. Rep. Harold McSween, 34, and former State Rep. Ben F. Holt, 34, both of Alexandria. Early reports indicated a heavy' turnout in the Alexandria ay.'a. The district has about 100,000 voters. In the primaries, Democrats picked three nominees for Congress and a wide range of public. offices. Republicans c h o o s e a nominee to oppose U.S. Sen. Allen J. Ellender in a concerted elfort to buildup a two-party system. Sen. Eastland Predicts Pro States Rights Law DODDSVILLE, Miss. (AP) Sen. James Eastland (D-MIss) predicts Congress will consider a states rights measure to prevent federal courts from overlooking state laws when the state laws are not in conflict with federa statutes. Eastland said Friday from his home here that the move was included as a rider on an internal security bill. A bill carrying the same provision was killed in Eastland's judiciary" committee by a one-vote margin. Eastland favors the measure. * f+ CONVENIENT LOCATIONS jiti^* 1 M D '" t N l t B j^^H"* = "[ ' 1^1/J/y^ ^ " 1 ^f^^f^ ' oSSpr 17 nil I/VST ureeovuie BOB DENMAN'S CRUSHED OR BLOCK I C E I.ASIS LOAUER - BETTER THAN ICE CUBES \ :1SO*» _ ^ rt*^ 5 ^^ Couldn't Get Htm Fired Barneti To Have Forester Probed JACKSON UPI) - C.

Tho governor said he had received complaints about Martin's work from 133 commission workers, Barnctt said the investigation, agreed upon unanimously, would concern "whether the forester is doing tho necessary things to promote forestry, whether there is a lack of cooperation, a lack of unity and a lack of action, and especially whether tho fire prolcc. lion program Is sulficient." Marlin, a former teacher at Mississippi Stale, was an employe of tho Forestry Commission before being elected forester in 1356.
