PAGE TWO BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) .COURIER NEWS THl NATION TODAY— With Congressmen Back Home Other Washington Officials to Get More Into the Limelight By Janifs Mario* ,, 'WASHINGTON, Oct. 20. (/!•)—What happens in Washington, now that Congress has quit for the rest of 1949? • True, the town will quiet down a'little. No more laws can be pawed tinti! Congress conies back into session again. • Until then there can be no more speeches or debates on the floors of HOU« *nd Senate. *——— . ._ This won't slop congressmen Irom issuing statements or making speeches wherever they are. if. only at * dinner or over the radio. But — a number ol congressmen will he here all the time, working .in their offices or scooting around town Others will stay here Io serve on committees which will .be holding hearings. Bomber Inquiry'Continues For instance, the House Armed Services Committee, was continuing today its hearings ori the .usefulness of the B-36 bomber. In spile of Hie congressional BhuWown, a heavy volume of news out of Washington probably will continue. It always seems thai way when Congress goes home. That's because the rest of'the government still 'will be doing business. With Congress'here, a lot of the other Washington news gets crowded out a bit or swampert because the congressional news is bigger or, at least, noisier. Now the news about Ihe rest of the government will get less competition. One thing is sure: a lot' of government officials will get a little rest. There's .been a steady-parade.,of thesi >11 year to testify before various hearings. , $ If you \\ere here and walchcd some of the top government officials again .and again forced to leave their desks and troop up to. the "capitol to face a committee, you'd. Winder how they ever had time^to get any work of their own done. To Start Ajaln In January Perhaps the best example of that w»s the'case of David Lillenthali chairman of the Atomic Energy Commission, ,whq — day after day before Congress* Joint Atomic Energy Committee—defended himself against the charge of "incredible mismanagement" in the AEC made by Senator Hickenlooper, Iowa Republican. For 45'days, this committee heard Lllienthal and others. Then the Democrals on' the committee, outnumbering the - Republicans, cast'a vote clearing Ihe AEC of the charge. , Secretary of State Dean Acheson held Ihe record for government officials who had to shuttle back and ;.lorth at the capitol.

Food Locker Plant Operators Put Emphasis on Farm Trade Future prosperity of Arkansas- frozen food locker plants probably will depend on whether or not they give adequate service to the farm trade. , • ~ That's what Howard Gi Ftird, Extension meats specialist, told locker plant operators this month at an all-day meeting in Little Rock. The get-together, sponsored by the university's Agricultural Extension Service, is intended to show operators how they can compensate for the big post-war drop In locker rentals by providing more slaughtering, processing, and marketing facilities for farm families. yenr—nol Just during periods of cold weather. Another service operators can provide is the merchandising of j part of the meat the farmer has I , processed. Through their contacts i I with other locker partons, plant I owners can help farmers sell a .side I • of beef or pork and defray part at- 'the expense of raising the animal.! This will encourage the farmer to! take greater advantage of Jocker j plant services and, at the same : time, help boost the number of locker rentals.

NEW YORK—r/iv-Acting for television is the thespiati's toughest assignment yet, say those who have tried sucli other mediums as stage, screen and radio. .Television is the most, difficult, they explain, because an actor must learn a complete script, go through a performance without a stop, and, If he makes a mistake, must work his way out the best he can. ; ., In the movies, only a -few lines' nccd^be learned at a lime as scenes generally are taken section by section, On Hie stage, the actor learns his part once ac'd then keeps doing it over and over. And on the radio, 'all he need do is to read the script With 'the proper vocal embellishments. . - nut meat prices began skyrocketing nfter the war, and eliminated much of the economy of buying In large quantities. People began buying only enough for • Immediate needs and many discounted use of freezer lockers. Large numbers of farm families have purchased home freezer units' in recent years, Mr; Ford said. To a certain extent this has reduced use of commercial lockers. But these families still need a service offered by locker plants, the specialist emphasized.
