Principal? in the ground-breaking at Osceola this morning were Dr. L. D. Massey, Colemaii Crews R. C. Bryant, Harold Ohlendorff Rufus Branch, Judge White and Dr. Billy Sheridan, members of a committee which did much of the early planning. The Rev. Mr. Chalmers Henderson, pastor of Osceola Presbyterian Church gave the invocation. Work is to start immediately on the Osceola unit and the Blytheville unit will get under wa'y in about two weeks, Judge White said. The general construction contract tract went to Baldwin Construction Company of Little Rock, for $376803.70. Plumbing, heating and air conditioning will be done by Capitol Plumbing and Heating Company of Little Rock for $195.016. Gets Wiring Contract Industrial Electric and Supply Company will wire the units for »66.896.

In this block all but a few of the privileges which normally go with prison life are taken away anyhow. And, from sad experience, precautions were ordered against any incidents such as the one Sunday night which led to the revolt by some 170 of the prison's 6.500 occupants. That was when a rookie guard was seized by Jack (Crazy Jack) Hyatt, a psychopathic long- ,.._ «*.v, VJ uii C Lunvici/—vie tin of a state trooper's bullet—and Injuries to 11 other prisoners and four policemen. It also resulted In an estimated two million dollars damage from fire, "vandalism and plunder largely to the prison utilities from which prisoners normally get most ol their pleasure. Millard said all crimes will be punished according to law. He said he will seek proof that will stand up in court of such charges as kid- naping, malicious destruction of property, rioting, inciting to riot, assault with intent to murder or do great bodily harm. "No state official, not even the Supreme Court, can grant any one immunity for the commission of crime," Millard said. A similar statement came from Gov, Williams, who praised prison officials for their success "in restoring control without a blood Youth Will Take Over City Offices for a Day Blytheville city officiate are to be "unemployed" tomorrow.

While Mrs. Paro waited In the car, the boys went Into the homes alone and visited. Mrs Paro and her husband were divorced shortly after Oer- sld was bom. Members Seek New Committee Post Holders LITTLK ROCK OPi_An effort to rotate Arkansas Republican party posts— those on state and national levels—has been started by First Congressional District party members. If the movement succeeds aim becomes effective this year, it will mean replacement Republican National Committeeman Wallace Townsend and of Republican National Cornmittecwoman Mrs A C Remmel, both of Little Rock. The two have held these posts since 1928 Contest "Not Involved" Fred Taylor of Osceola, secretary of yesterday's First District convention, said the action had "not one bit" of connection with the contest for delegates between supporters of Sen. Robert A. Taft and hackers of Gen. Dwlglit Eisenhower. Both Townsi'nd and Mrs. Renimcl favor Taft. Taylor said the district convention, held at Jonesboro, nnaniir.ous- ly adopted two resolutions in a closed part of the siession to which newsmen were excluded. One, a general resolution, said the district convention felt that important state Republican posts had been centered in one Incality (Litile Rock) too long. "Strength" Sought To "strengthen the party" and rotate honors and responsibilities, the resolution suggcsed that the Republican state convention, which opens here today, adopt a rule that no state party officer serve more than two consecutive four- year terms. The second resolution urged the elcolion of Charles R. Black of Corning, the party's IMS ccndidate for governor and a long-time GOP stalwart, as Republican national committeeman. The resolution, Taylor said, didn't mention Townsend by name but pointed out that "the present committeeman" had held the position for 24 years. Townscnd Is Praised But. Taylor said, the resolution praised Townsend,. for his "long .nil able ""service" in behalf of flic Republican party in the state and ration. "It certainly was no reflection on Mr. Townscnd and was intended as •x sort of 'favorite son 1 endorsement of Mr. Black," Taylor said. Both resolutions were introduced by A. O. Border, secretary of the Clay County Republican Committee. Black's home town of Corning is in Clay county. No specific mention of Mrs. Remmel—cither direct or Indirect—was made in either resolution. News of adoption of the general resolmicn gave rise to speculation that Mrs. Frank MacGillicuddy of Malvern, now vice chairman of the Republican State Committee, might become a candidate for national committeewoman. Seven delegates have been selected from the state's six Congressional districts. The heavily-Republican Third District (Northwest Arkansas) named two delegates, and the other districts one each. Apparently—as Speck admitted— the district delegates are predominantly r pro-Taft. although most of them have openly expressed themselves. The final district convention—the First District—was held at Jones- Sec STATE OOP on I'ajre 2 CANDIDATE FOR OOVIiKNOK VISITS - Chancellor Francis Cherry of Jonesboro (right), candidate for governor, wa, here Vcste day and ta.ked with ab.mt 75 Mississippi Countlans at ^ „ o m gathering at Hole, Koblc.

Cotton prices last summer dropped In a month and a half from a near-record average of •14.37 cents a pound to about 31 ccnLs. Loud protests came out of the cotton-producing areas. Congressmen from cotton states protested bitterly. Forcrasls Reflected This sharp decline largely reflected official forecasts that the 1051 crop would be nearly 70 per cent larger than the previous year's harvest. Prospects of n 44- cent price at planting time had encouraged heavy plantings. The grower complaints about the declining prices did not go unheeded by [he Agriculture Department It hastily «i-(jccl growers—through its system of farmer committees— to withhold cotton from the market. Growers were told that if they needed money to meet bills and by storing cotton under a government loan. Economic Graugis Protest Some economic groups protested that the department was in effect urging farmers to "go on a strike " These critics said the action was unjustified inasmuch as cotton had not dropped to parity—the price level declared by law to be equally the First Baptist Church here.
