A. Fredriekson (Courier News Staff Writer) The. South was handed a five-point plan yesterday for meeting a future for which is forecast an "agricultural revolution" that will see a slow mechanization of farming lead to severe readjustments in the cotton belt but without a serious displacement of farm labor. . Speaking before an estimated 3,000 persons at Walker Park at the National Cotton Picking Contest program, Chester C. Davis, •president of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, listed these things which the South must do to meet the challenges of the future: 1) "Grow all of the cotton we can arid zrow It efficiently." 2) Avoid over-reliance on price •upports. 3) Use land and other resources now lying idle. 4) Produce in the South food and other goods for consumption in the South. 5) Keep cotton competitive In .

They will he particularly severe in wheat and cotton are'as." Mechanization of farming is advancing, Mr. Davis said lie has concluded, it is nearly complete in the corn states, he said, but will come slowly in the cotton belt, he said. He cited the National Cornhusk- Ing Contest as a, victim of mechanization. The last contest was held in 1M1, he said, and "I doubt if It ever- will be revived." • Mechanical pickers : now harevst 90 per cent of the corn raised, he pointed out. Mr. Davis took an opposite view of the popular theory that mechanization will take labor from the fields and put it in the factories. 'As I look ahead," he said, "I think we'll see a transfer of labor « n fields to factories that will I lo mechanization." , : explained, however, that he did not foresee any serious displacement of farm labor due to mechanization. ., By providing more human capital See BANKER on Page 10 Stork Lands in Truck To Make Delivery and Wins Race to Hospital Manuel Garcia, a Mexican farm laborer, lost his race with the stork yesterday afternoon and his ton and a half farm truck was converted into a hospital on a busy Blytheville street. .Garcia, who is employed as a laborer on a farm near Roselaml, made a desperate race with the stork to a Blytheville doctor's office in his truck but he lost out by a matter of seconds.

VA Launches Campaign to Curb GI Training Program Abuses mix-up over the GI By Junes Marlow WASHINGTON, Oct. 8. (^—There's been education program. At the root of It is thc belief of the veterans administration (VA), which runs the program, that it's being abused. This is si brief explanation of what's happened. In 19« Congress passed a law letting World War n veteran* go to school at government expense and gel paid while going. They got this under two main* ' conditions: If they were under 25 and could show ihe war had interrupted their education. In 19*5 Congress changed the tew, wiping out the two limitations mentioned, opening the program to veterans of any age. Then began a government philosophy tfiat all veterans should have any education they wanted, based on their military service up to four Veterans not"only poured Into the taking various kinds of instruction like dancing, mixing drinks, learning to Sly, and even how to tell the sex of unborn chicks.

The petition was filed by, Oscar Fcudler, attorney, representing himself and 111 other taxpayers in various parts of the county. Twenty- seven of the petitioners reside in Blytheville and many of the others reside west of Big. Lake in and •wound Leachville and Manila. Legality of the original petition, which was circulated by .members of the Osceola Junior Chamber of Commerce, and procedure under authority of the call for the election were attacked on nine separate grounds In the taxpayers' action. . One of the objection! to holding tlie election at this time centers on the necessity lor using poll tax receipts issued this year until Sheriff William Berryman, who it cjt-officlo tax collector, has time to prepare poll tax books showins the qualified elector) in each of .the townships in the rural arras and In each of the wards in the municipalities. - i The deadline for paying the poll tax expired last Saturday.,;In the petition filed today by Mr. Pendler it was stated that failure to have the poll books in the hands of election Judges and clerks could "lend itself to elections with iregulari- ties and might encourage Illegal voU' ing."' .

"If the County Court should refuse this request we hereby authorize that proper legal proceedings be instituted in the proper courts of Arkansas to protect our rights as citizens and property owners in regard to subject matter and pur names may be used as plaintiffs in such proceedings." . < Defects In Procedure Alleged The petition charges that the notice for the special election had not been given in » "proper and legal manner"; that the sheriff had not issued a proclamation as required by law for elections; that election officers have not prepared ballots in compliance with the law, and that election places have not been announced in compliance with stete law. ... It Is further charged that a proper county court order had not been entered showing that the-election was authorized while the court was legally in session, and that the court has not caused plans and specifications for the hospital to be prepared, or given estimates for the probable cost of the hospital. : A 40-bed hospital has been proposed by the sponsors and the bond election would be held to determine whether the voters in'the'county will approve a J200.000 issue and levy the tax necessary to pay interest and retire the bonds. A grant of. 5100,000 is anticipated from federal authorities, if the bond election is held and the propos&l ratified by tlie electorate. The hospital would be operated by a commission to be appointed by the county court. The commission would select the site and supervise construction of the hospital.

'•';It is the keystone' of a House- approved measure which the Senate thus far has ignored In favor of a bill written by Senator Anderson (P-NM).

'asked- the Senate to throw out Anderson's flexible support plan for the 90 per cent provision. The Senate turned that down. . Then it voted to reconsider. On the second vote, it' approved the Youiig-Bussell amendment on a tie which was broken by the vote of Vice President Barkley. Harried Senate leaders succeeded in having the bill. returned to the Agriculture Committee for rewriting. Tlie committee wrote flexible supports back into the bill, added some changes Intended to swing some more votes Ijehind (he provision and sent the bill back to the Senate. • • • Victory for Administration . The lawmakers handed Young and piisscll their second rejection on yesterday's vote. In doing so, they followed the advice of Democratic Leader Lucas of.Illinois and some other Senate chiefs, but rebuffed Chairman Elmer Thomas (D-Okla) of the Agriculture Committee, and Secretary of Agriculture Brannan—both of whom favored the high supports. ! There also was a report, quoted by Thomas, that President Truman favored the 90 per cent plan. That couldn't be confirmed, and Russell co-author of the plan, Indicated that he had heard Just the contrary. The outcome of the Senate voting was a 'major victory for both Lucas and Anderson, who was Brannan's predecessor as secretary of agriculture. It kept intact the provision which would allow supports to drop down to 75 per cent of parity for thc five major crops If supplies began to Pile up under government loans and purchases. (Parity is a government-calcu- _. ernmen-cacu- lated standard Intended to assure farmers a fair income In relation to the prices they must pay for things). * Arkansas' senators Fulbright and McCIellan voted with the minority yesterday as the Senate defeated an amendment for mandatory price supports at 90 per cent of parity on basic farm crops.
