PAGE FOURTEEN BLYTHEVILLB (ARK.) COURIER KBWg Legislature's Change of Livestock Law Held Unconstitutional by High Court LITTLE ROCK, Oct. 8. (AP)—The Arkansas Supreme Court today held uncon.sii- i.ulional a legislative attempt to limit the statewide livestock restriction law wliidi van adopted by popular vote. In a G-to-l decision, the court threw out Act 120 of' 1951 which amended Initiated Act. No. 1, of 19SO. Initiated Act. No. 1, adopted alt- . the 1&50 gcjioral ejection, made it a misdemeanor for owners to allow livestock to run at large on any highway or road In the state. Act 120 attempted to limit the Initiated act to hard-surfaced roails and within corporate limits, hut said that it should continue to apply where local districts to keep stock confined had been set up before Jan. 1, 1051. The Supreme Court opinion, written by Associate Justice George Rose Smith, upheld Pulaski Circuit Court in declaring Act 120 void. Associate Justice Sam Robinson dissented. Acl Is Unconstitutional The amending act ar, unconstitutional its provisions arc "local and arbitrary," the liiyh court opinion said. The court did not consider the controversy over whether the initiated act .should apply only to liaid- surfaced roads, but dwelt mainly in Its considerations upon the stock district exemption. "Ixjcal and Arbitrary" The opinion said "exemption of stock law district.? must ... be condemned as local and arbitrary." Under Act 120 one owner of cattle may be criminally liable for allowing them to wander on public roads, "while his neighbor may pursue the same course'with impunity, merely because he lives within the IJOUH- daries of a stock law district "wherein limits are only on hoys. sheep, and goats, the court said. "Widespread inequalities like this one show that the classification contained hi Act 120 bears no fair relationship to the purpose o! the statute," said the opinion. Judgment Is Upheld The Supreme Court aftlrmed a Columbia Circuit Court Judgment fining Zula Mae Wilson, operator of the Highway Cafe near Magnolia, $1,000 for selling liquor in dry territory and $oOO for selling untaxed intoxicants. The court affirmed a Critlcnden Circuit Court Jury verdict finding Freeman Montaque, West Memphis, guilty of involuntary manslaughter and fixing his term at three years plus a $1,000 fine. Montaque was convicted In the death of Mrs. M. W. Clifton near I*hl, on Oct. 1, 1030, when a car driven by her husband collided with one driven by Montnque. The high court opinion snid there was evidence Monta<iua had been drinking liquor. WRECKS (Continued from Pag* 1} Salmons is a native of Fort Smith.

The council Is not expected to meet before Thursday. Meantime the aged and ailing premier Is expected to hold bedside conferences with U. N. diplomats from a suite in New York Hospital. Iran contends that nationalization of her oil Is a domestic problem and the U. N. should refuse to Interfere. Mossadegh, a fervent Nationalist. led the fight to drive Britain's Anfjlo- Iranian Oil Company out of Iran from his bed In his" modest private house In Tehran. He rarely left it except to appear in parliament, where he made Impassioned pleas—sometimes accompanied by fainting spells—for support against what he regarded as foreign exploiters. Dressed in pink pajamas, he received such dignitaries as W. Averell Harrlman, President Truman's special envoy, and Britain's Ambassador Sir Francis Shepherd. Reports from Rome and Amsterdam, where the premier's plane stopped yesterday, described him as grimacing with pain and trembling F «-i(h nervousness. At both slops he jmade only brief appearances.

(AP) — A Senate-House conference committee today got down to the big points of dispute in a bill to increase taxes by $5,000,000,000 to $1,000,000,000 a year. The remaining major controversies between the two branches involve: 1. The size of the increase In individual Income taxes. In all but the highest brackets, the House hill calls for a 12 'f, per cent boost in the tax due under present rates the Senate bill for an 11 per cent rise. The final lit-iire probably will be somewhere In between. 2. A House proposal to make a greater portion of a company's earnings subject to the excess profits tax. Corporation Taxes? 3. Whether to impose corporation taxes on unallocated profits of cooperatives, presently untaxed. Members of the 12-man conference group are pointing for a final agreement by tomorrow night' some even spoke hopefully of completing the compromise bill today. But any one of the big unresolved Issues might hold back the final settlement several days. Saturday Session Held The conferees capped live days of negotiations last week with a Saturday session that lasted until nightfall. They cleaned up a hundred odds and ends of the hill, but readily conceded that the big issues still remained to be worked out. Additions and increases to the excise taxes, along with a tew decreases to the excise taxes, now are out of the way. If the new law can be enacted by Oct. 21, the changes will take effect Nov. 1. The excise boasts all arc slated to end April 1, 1954. Stossen Contends State Department Undermined Chinese Nationalists JUMP STASSEN CONTENDS 2-21 WASHINGTON, Oct. 8. UP, — Harold E. Sta.«en contended today the record makes it plain the State Department played a part in undermining the Chinese Nationalists, and contradicts denials by Secretary Acheson and Ambassador Philip C. Jcssup. Testifying before a Senate foreign relations subcommittee, Stassen said: "The denials by the State Department of things which I know are true, the claims by the State Department of things which I know are not true, leave me very uneasy and disturbed with regard to our country's future policy." The Senate group is considering Jcssup's nomination to be a delegate to the coming United .Nations General Assembly meeting In Paris. He is now an ambassador-at-large, a post in which he represents this country on many .special occasions. Stassen. former Republican governor of Minnesota and now president of the University of Pennsylvania, testified last week on the Jessup nomination. He said then that the late Senator Arthur Vandenberg (R-Mich) told him that, Acheson and Jessnp plugged at a secret While House meeting in 1949 for a cut-off of aid to Nationalist China. CEASE-FIRE (Continued from Page 1) ier. and Gen. Peng Teh-Huai. commander of Chinese Communist forces In North Korea. Responsibility "1'laccu" Ridgway opened his reply with the statement: "We again categorically state that the responsibility for the delay in negotiations during the past several weeks is yours." The exchange of messages leave's the two sides about one mile apart on the negotiation front but drawing closer. Ridgway had proposed that talks be resumed near Songhyon, about a mile from Panmunjorn. He may still be holding out for that \var- orUtenid village in his reference to "the immediate vicinity of Panmun- jom." The Reds have climbed down from their stronger demands made frequently since the talks broke olf more than six weeks aeo.
