Top government 'experts -are now burning midnight oil over blueprints calling for spreading the big Tennessee Missouri strategic centers over into the Blytheville, Northeast Arkansas and other outlying Arkansas and tri-state areas as wel as extending other large cities through the country. Decentralization is to be more arid more the attempted insurance watchword for the atomic age. May Change American Scene Increased Importance of Blytheville and Northeast Arkansas is par of a giant "national face-lifting' and revamping of America, projected by the activities of Joe Stalii and Company. Bureaucratic blueprints call for some present cities the size and relative strategic location of Blytheville to better than double population within a reasonable period thus attaining the coveted approximate twenty to twenty-five thousand population class to become one of America's junior "optimum- garden" cities, as safe as possible from the atomic threats. Meanwhile experts estimate atomic de centralization 'program will mean general'over-all population Increase of twenty-rive per cent for Northeast Arkansas as a whole. "Decentralization In future expansion of cities and of industry to be furthered by Russia's possession of the atomic bomb," declares U. S.-Ncws & World Report today For years, stores have been moving to suburbs and factories to smaller towns, to escape the high rents, heavy taxes and slow traffic of congested areas. Now decentralization is described by officials as life and property insurance In the atomic age.' Cities of 30,000 to Be Fostered ''Clusters of cities of around 30,000 each are to be fostered. These cities, if separated from one another by three or more miles of open space, will be poor targets for atomic bombs. "Construction already is at a rate declared to be equivalent to building annually 100 cities of 40,000 each. The aim Is to guide and coordinate this new construction so as to get the maximum of security, i, 1 f, ky f? ra P* rs no longer will be built, If needs of atomic security are observed. They are especially ralnerable to atomic bombs. Few such a building will escape, if an atomic bomb is exploded within a half mile.

It .was a far cry from the Senate committee hearing at which investigators, on the hunt for "Influence peddling" in Washington Inquired Into some of Vaughan's non-veteran activities. In fact, the toastmaster called It a party of "a very cxtraordianry type.

Smaller Thin a Deep Freeze It was, Keats said apoloetically such "a little token for a man who has done such a big Job." ' / He said Vaughan, as co-ordina- tor of veterans affairs, has "never kept track of all the things he has done for us veterans." Ater Keats told of how Vaughan cut "red tape" to expedite help for veterans, General Vaughan arose. ire told a story of a n Army mess sergeant who wanted Insecticide to kill some ants that Infested his mess hall. . "The quartermaster told him he'd give him the. insecticide If the ants were Inside the mess hall, but If the ants were outside the mess hall, that made them engineer ants and he'd have to go to the engineers for help," he said with • grin. In working for veterans, he said, •we have to combat guys like that to get things done." Th* general had grave doubts that all the veterans organizations should be united. He said some people advocate uniting nil the churches. If that happened, he Mid, they would be spilt Into "H factions."
