In U. S. District Court in Jonesboi'o. According lo information filed in federal court, the suit Involves installation of equipment by Allis- Clialmcrs to convert the Wilson cotton oil mill from a hydraulic press set-up to a "continuous solvent extraction process."

Delta Products said the residual oil in tile meal was three per cent, which was over the amount sjieci- ned in the guarantee. Tile complaint shows the following break-down of damages sought In the suit: For the difference in actual value of the new equipment to the plaintiff and its value if it had operated as guaranteed, 5100,000.

The congressional approval apparently put tn.3 stamp of legality on the latest coup by Panama's president-making police chief, Col. Jose Remon. Remon, who forced the ouster of President Daniel Chanis. Jr., on Sunday, late last night defied a ruling of the supreme court and announced that Arias was the new president. A few minutes before, tire court had ruled Chants was still the constitutional president of this central American oculltry. The Congressional endorsement of Anas at 2 03 ajn ^thjs mormnp ended m. week of tunncttjowr the pres- riots and ins unusual even for Latin America when; revolutions arc not uncommon.

Often Attacked U.S. Arias Is an ardent nationalist and in his past hectic career often attacked US. influence in this country bisected by the Panama Canal. The apparent end of the political crisis found the country neacelul, people demonstrating in the streets and shouting "Viva Arias." The dispute began last Saturday when President Chanis tried to fire Col. Remon, whose police force is Panama's only armed body. Chanis charged Remon and his top aides were Involved in illegal monopolies controlling beef slaughtering and bus companies. Instead of resigning, Remon surrounded the presidential palace with armed police and in re-sjKinse to an ultimatum Chanis resigned. Ramon's cousin, Vice President Roberto. Chiarl wus sworn In as president. Tuesday Chanis declared he was ' forced to resign and withdrew his letter of resignation in a drumatic appearance before the Congress. Yesterday, in response to a request for a legal opinion by Chiari, the supreme court ruled that Chanis was still the constitutional president. Chiarl left the presidency after the ruling and Remon quickly moved Arias into the scat.

The Chicks, who have stuck almost entirely lo the ground all r>en- son, scored three of the four touchdowns via the ucrlal route with iophomorc halfback Mel Hny doing most of the chunking. Their other six-pointer wns scored by halfback Charles (Ruff) Lutes on a 07-yard broken field run that was reminiscent of the llerschel Moslcy days of the mld-lOliO's. Playing an inspired brand of fool- ball lifter a sluggish slart, the Chicks wrapped up their final out- Ing of the season for a final record of six wins against four defeats for their third consecutive winning season. Could the Chicks have erased thtf first quarter It would hnve been the closest thing to a perfect game ,(hcy have played all season. In Ihe last three quarters their defensive was toil-drawer stuff and thcl Tensive wus at Its season best. Only In llic first quarter were the Blue Devils able to do much, Hint Is until laic In the game when the reserves took over. It was then they scored their final touchdown 11 their only long drive of the afternoon. Visitors Start Fast A short out-of-bounds punt In Ihe opening minutes of the game set the Blue Devils on the road to their first touchdown.

Wnrd passed to Jnrvls for the extra point to give Booneville a 7-0 lend. It was only n matter of two mln utes nnd eight seconds before tin Blue Devils owned seven more points llianks mainly to a tight, holdlnt line and the hard driving legs Bnrron. Buddy Donner of the Chicks returned the kickoff from the Blytheville 15 to the Booneville 34 hi there the outwclglwd but scrappj Blue Devil line rose up to quieten the Blytheville cheers. After three plays had gained only six yards Lute* again punted out at the Booneville 25. Ward lost one on an attempted end sweep but on the next play Bnrron broke through a nice hole down the middle, slipped away from two Blytheville tacklers nnd went 76-yard to pay dirt. Bnrron crashed through the middle for the extra point. Chicks Start Rolling After the fclckoff the Chicks picked up I wo straight first downs before the quarter ended. With the ball on their own 35 they began lo roll as the second period opened. Fullback I/mis Anderson and-halfback Mel Hay, aided by a five-yard offside penalty picked up a first (I wn at mldfietd on consecutive tries, l.utes on a reverse moved for five yards and Hay circled end for four more. Donner on a sneak could get only one but Hay crashed over guard to Ihe Booneville 28. Hay then tossed a nine-yard pass to end Max Gurley to move to the Blue Devils' 29. Lutes gained four and then Hay tossed a screen pass to Lutes In the flat and l.utes scampered 23 yards for the Chicks' first touchdown. Gee's kick for extra point was topped. Guard Jltnmy Garner, who was one of the Chicks' defensive standouts, set up Blythcvllle's second touchdown with a fumble recovery on the Booneville 40. On the very first play nftcr the recovery Hay passed to Gurley In the flat with the big end moving to the 30 for a first down. Lutes then fumbled the hando'r from Hay on the old Statue of Liberty play and lost 15 yards to the 45. Hay tried another aerial to halfback Roger Lum but it sailed over his head at the goal line. Lum then swept end for 15 yards and on fourth down Hay found Li tes nt the 10. hit htm with a pass nnd Lutes rambled Into the end zone. Gee's kick for extra point was good and a halftlme the chicks trailed 14-13. Chicks Take Lead The Chicks struck for two fast ones in the third period to take a Democrats Answer Republicans' Blast At State Department WASHINGTON, Nov. 25-(yp)—A Republican blast, at the State Department's Handling of the Angus Ward case brought from two Democrats today a reply thnt the department should be praised rather than criticized. Reps. Price <D-I11> nnd Mansfield (D-Mont.) told reporters the important thins was thnt the department had got Wnrd, the U. S. consul general nt Mukden, released from a Chinese communist Jail. They snld ward still would be In Jail and the United Slates probably would be In a war if the department had followed n policy keyed to the thinking represented by the O.O.P. attack. Five Republicans _ all'members of the House Foreign Affairs Committee — got out a statement yesterday accusing the department of a "spineless performance" In tho Wnrd case. They demanded the immediate firing of officials "high nnd low" responsible for U. S. Chinese policy. They were particularly critical of efforts to bring world pressure on the CotninunlsL-i to release Ward. Referring to the Republican statement, Price said: ' "If this kind of warped thinking were followed through, It would lead to hostilities and the possible loss of a million American lives." Price Is a member of the IIouss Armed Services Committee. Mansfield, a member of Ihe Foreign Affairs Committee, said "If the department had followed the policy outlined by the five Republicans, It very likely would have mennt war and it certainly would not have meant the release of Ward nnd others. The department acted wisely In connclng ober nnions and bringing abou n. real Unled Na- lons cffor In his case." The five Republicans called tlio whole incident "one ol the most humiliating chapters In American diplomatic history." They said "the loss ol face by the United States U beyond calculation." 26-H lead before letting up. Returning the kickoff opening the second half from the Blytheville 13 to the 38 Roger Lum set Ihe Chicks off on their third goalward march. Ruff Lutes, on third down, passed to Mel Hay for a first down on the 48 and then swept end for two more yards.

Hay gained back the penalty plus 12 more yards when he circled end for 17 yards to the Booneville 28. Hay passed to Gurley for nine yards and then slanted over tackle for a first down on the Blue Devils' 18. Hay hit Gurley for five more yards rnd then threw a long one toward coffin corner with Donner leaping high for a beautiful catch at the goal line and stepped into the end zone untouched. Gee's kick for extra point was good. After the kickoff the Blue Devils tried three times but gained nothing and Ward punted to Uim on the Blylheville 35.
