Gerard o! New York, a powerful stockholder in U. S. Steel, gave unexpected support lo striking steelworkers.

VA Withholds Dividends to Offset Debts More than -1,300 Arkansas veterans who owe the government money may find all or part of (heir share of the forthcoming GI life insurance dividend deducted to cover this indebtedness, Jiimcs A. Winn of Little Rock, regional Vet- rans Administration manager, said today. These debts have resulted from overpayment of subsistence allowances or other veterans' benefits and defaults on loans guaranteed bv the VA. All of the individuals concerned are aware of their indebtedness to the government and know that it is deductible from other VA payments to which they may be entitled. Wlnn said these Arkansas veterans arc currently indebted to the VA for a total of about $521,000 and thnt withholding of NSLI dividends; will permit the VA 19 collect an estimated 5150,000 to $225,000 of this, total. He said that this was a small share of the total nationwide indebtedness to the VA by some GOO,000 veterans who owe approximately S70.000.000. It is estimated that withhholding of these dividend payments will wipe out a total of sonic 530.000,000 to $30,000,000 of these debts. Of the $2.800,000,000 dividend to bo paid during the first half of 1950 to approximately 10.000.000 veterans, it is estimated that $24.500,000 will be paid to 1<!0,000 Arkansas veterans Southeast Missouri Singers Plan Meeting The Southeast Missouri Singing Convention, held semi-annu.illy, wil ; be conducted at 1 p.m. Sund'ay at the Campbcll,,Mo., high school.

The Firestone Champion Spade Grip Tire has been designed to provide exceptional performance under adverse conditions. The tire has a curved bar triple braced tread design similar to the Firestone Champion Ground Grip Tractor Tire. However, it has an extra deep tread that bites deeply into mud and soft ground where conventional type tires would bog down. Such conditions will be found particularly in the SOYBEAN FIELDS. Here the Firestone Champion Spade Grip has won widespread favor among SOYBEAN GROWERS because of its efficient cleaning ab.hty and its extra draw bar pull. The tire has also proved highly efrrcient in soft muck lands and in bottom lands where wet ground conditions are found. rc$ron<? Blvrheyille 0.0.
