New~York Stocks TWELVE PAGES Chemical Weed, Grass Killer Demonstrated By Harry A. HallM (Courier News Staff Writer) . Approximately 150 people including farmers and others interested m the growth and cultivation of cotton were on hand at the Godfrey L. White farms in South Mississippi County yesterday to attend a field demonstration of No-Ho ' Many came from as far as Miss-j issippi and several other states were represented at the demonstration, conducted by Mr. White and Noah Peek, ol the University of Arkansas. Mr. Peek., has been conducting tests with Mr. White on the latter's farm 'since early summer. One of the most slgnlfican and Impressive points in favor of the weed and grass killer was made when It was disclosed that some of Mr. White's cotton had been kept free of weeds and grass by use of the chemical exclusively Weather a Factor It was pointed out however, that weather and growing conditions can alter the effectiveness of No-Ho. All of the cotton on Mr. White's farm was sprayed with the chemical at least once. The cost of three applications (generally considered enough during one growing season) can be set at approximately 47.20 per acre for the chemical compound alone. Tlie chemical sold for 30 cents per gallon this year. Prom five to ten gallons per acre are necessary for each application. The rig required for applying the chemical compound currently sells for J300. but officials of the Dixie Land Equipment of Shelby. Miss., predict the price on the deluxe model will fall to around $250 In the near future. Although tests have proven that the application definitely has a future, Mr. White admits there « r e several factors which must be taken Into consideration in regard to using th« product. Nred Level Sfwl Bed Foremost among these, he lists the proper preparation of the seed bed. "It's absolutely necessary thnt the seed bed be level. This insures efficiency of the weed killer when the cotton Is young." he stated. Because the rig is tractor mount ed, the second factor to consider would naturally be weather ... an unusually net year like 1949 tend to reduce chances for getting the desired effect, naln itself does no reduce the effectiveness of the chemical and Mr. White has ob tained good results when applying it during rains. Some 71 machines over Arkansa. Missouri, Mississippi and Louisiana applied the weed killer to a total of about 1,500 acres during the pas year. Biggest trouble experienced bj users of the process during the past year apparently lay In the mechanism of the spraying rig. However, It was pointed out that the improved model of the rig has Se« CHEMICAL on Pa»e K SINGLE COPIES FIVE CENTS Storm Clouds Over Steel Negotiations Alfalfa Growers Hold Six-County Conference Seventy-five farmers from six Eastern Arkansas counties met at tlie Court House In Osceola last night to discuss with live University of Arkansas agricultural experts, their problems of allalfa production Aldermen Delay New Attempt Is Made Today To Settle Mo-Pac Rail Strike ST. LOUIS, Sept. 14-W-Man- brotherhoods and the Wabash Rall- agement and union representatives planned a new attempt today to settle strike claims that brought about the Missouri Pacific railroad strike. • A decision to resume negotiations was announced yesterday after a two-hour session between egiht men from the four brotherhoods Involved and four company officials The talks today are set. for 1 p.m. (C3T). , ,(,,-„ <:,V • There are 282 iluion claims ;•»- gainst the company. Most of them are differences of opinion between the company and unions on operating rules. They involve an estimated 13,000.000. If the two sides could reach an agreement on at least a majority of the claims, the men might go back to work. That happened in a similar situation between the same road last March. Then with the men back at work the rest of the claims would be taken up by the negotiators. Five thousand engineers, firemen, conductors and trainmen are or! strike. Another 20,000 Missouri Pacific employes were laid off last Friday, start of the strike. Several hundred .industries, dependent on the railroad In 10 states for supplies and ""movVmeht of finished products, face layoffs in the next few days it .at settlement Isn't reached.

City Attorney Percy A. Wright said In Introducing the proposed ordinance that among the 11 earlle- ordinances were two which reversed thems elves. One. he pointed out, wiped out all the previous ordinances by proclaiming peddling to be a nuisance and prohibiting such activity The other, passed still later, reversed this and approved peddling, if n- To License Peddlers The proposed ordinance sets up licensing requirements for "itinerant merchants and solicitors." Applicants for such licenses would be required to past «00 penal bonds through surety. companies, by cash or through two responsible property owners. Among the provisions under which J,he peddlers could operate would be a "money-back guarantee" clause, requiring refunds to purchasers if the product was in any way misrepresented. Fees would be J5 for one day, $30 for a week and $1CO for a month's peddling. New licenses would be required after the original period elapsed.

Reluctance of some steel companies to approve in advance the presidential board'* • proposal that they pay for in- jtirance and pension programs was interpreted in some quarters ns holding a new slril.a ihreat. A spokesman for the CIO United Stcclworkers said that union president Philip Murray's statement he Is ready to resume negotiations for a contract based on the board's report meant that he will strike any companies which failed to agree to pay nil Insurance and pension costs. Tho U.S. Steel Corporation and three other large producers agreed to President Truman's request for an 11-day extension of the strike tntcc expiring last midnight. All said they are ready to talk contruct again but none wholeheartedly endorsed the board's recommendation for a 10-ccnt package covering company-financed Insurance and pensions. At least two company officials said workers ought to share the costs of such programs. 'Hie union said It had received no word as yet from U.S. Steel, the industry leader, on when it will resume contract talks. Tho union accepted the board's recommendations without reservations. That meant giving up Its drive for a fourth postwar round of wage Increases In 1049. The union said the board's suggested 10-ccnt Increase In the form of company- financed Insurance and pension programs was good enough. Republic steel Co.; Jones and Laughlln steel Corp., and Inland Steel Co., Joined U.S. Steel in announcing willingness to renew negotiations. Other firms were expected to follow suit. A US. Steel.sixjkesman, Mrtl" Wfak''*pllngJJ|> endntlSM as a basis for!.* contract, replied: "I wouldn't think o."

Last July U.S. stcel- nlcs—refused to ,nd other compa- bargaln on pen- slons, denied a wage increase and offered an Insurance plan which called for workers and employer to share the costs 50-50. The reply of president Clarence B. Randall of Inland Steel also indicated the union would not have- clear sailing when contract sessions begin again. He said Inland would review its present pension program! and added: "We are prepared to make changes and to bear a substantial part of Ihe cost but we think the worker who is benefited also should share the cost." Republic steel also said It felt workers .should help pay for pensions and Insurance.
