PA01 MOW BLYTHEYILLE (ARK.)' COURIER MCW1 SATURDAY, AUGUST 14, 1954 Screening Asked For Migrants Senators Would Bar U. S. Funds to Aid Immigration to West By JOHN CHADWICK WASHINGTON UB—Sen. McCarran (D-Nev) said today the Senate Appropriations Committee has agreed unanimously to bar u^e of TJ. S. funds to assist in the migration to the Testern Hemisphere of any persons not "thoroughly screened for security." The provision is directed toward persons entering Hemisphere countries other than, the United States, since strict immigration rules already apply here. The provision, McCarren said, was written into a bill carrying $2,900,000,000 in new funds to finance the foreign military and economic aid program. The money measure still must be acted on by the Senate. Over 10 million dollars of this is for the U.S. contribution to the Intergovernmental Committee for European Migration (ICEM), an agency which McCarran said gets 60 per cent of its money from this government. The McCarran amendment provides that none of the U.S. funds may be used to help in the migration to any nation in the Western Hemisphere of any person "who shall not first have been thoroughly screened for security" ki accordance with the strict standards set in the McCarran- Walter immigration law. McCarran said in an interview his purpose was to make sure no U.S. money was spent "to subsidize the infiltration" of Communists into the Western Hemisphere. Train Collision COAL CITY, HI. IB—Five members of one family were killed last night in the collision of a speeding Santa Fe freight train and an automobile loaded with 10 persons. The Grundy County sheriff's office said members of two Central City, 111., families were crammed into the auto. Deputie s said the car drove iirough a wig-wag warning signal at the crossing on Coal City's main street, 60 miles southwest of Chiago, and continued directly into the path of the westbound train. Deputies said the driver of the car, Howard Barnes, 39, escaped with minor injuries. The train was delayed briefly. Grundy County Coroner Clark Davie said all the dead were members of Barnes' family. He identi- ied them as Barnes' wife, Clara £&e, 33; his son, Howard, Jr., 4, and his daughters, Irene, 12, Edna, 1, and Wilma, 9. Obituary Rites Conducted For Charles Kelly Services for Charles Sealer Kelly, 65, who died Thursday at a Pine Bluff Hospital after a, month's illness, were to be conducted at 2:30 p.m. today at Cobb Funeral Home Chapel by the Rev. E. C. Brown, pastor of the First Baptist Church here. Burial was to be in Maple Grove Cemetery. Mr. Kelly had been a resident of Pine Bluff for the past year and had lived in Blytheville for 20 years before moving there. He was born in Stewart. Miss.

Mrs. Neld Speeks of Jackson, Miss.; and tw sisters, Mrs. Mary Fox of Winona Miss., and Mrs. Riva Ramsey Hollandale, Miss. Continued from Pag« 1 Americans as spies. Shizuhiko Yamamoto, a Japanese police official who questioned Rast- vorov in Washington, told the newspaper Tokyo Shimbun more than 20 persons have been v questioned. "We have found most of them former servicemen who go around selling tips," he said. "We have determined they haven't sold any important tips, so we don't suspect them seriously of violating the law penalizing leaks of U.S. security forces classified information. None of them is under arrest?" At his news conference, Rast- vorov declined to say what happened to him after he came to the West. However, he did say "American friends" helped him and he was flown almost right away to the United States. He firmly requested that no pictures be taken during the conference. The young Russian came off handily in Verbal tilts with reporters. Picking carefully, he replied to some questions in heavily accented English, let others slide by arid rejected still others on security grounds. Careful Answer Careful footwork on the part of the Soviet ambassador was disclosed, too, by State Department spokesmen. The ambassador, Georgi N. Zarubin, sent word neither he nor any of his aides WASHINGTON Gf) — Republican leaders today were reported ready to ask House approval, without change, of a proposed temporary hike of six billion dollars in the nations' legal debt ceiling. The measure, approved yesterday by the Senate, differs from a 15 billion dollar debt boost voted last year by the House. But if the House accepts the later version without change, the need for a Senate-House conference would be done away with and Congress SENATE would be that much nearer adjournment. Sponsored by Sen. Byrd (D-Va), the Senate plan would allow the government to increase the debt ;o 281 billion dollars, provided it is reduced to the present limit of 275 billions by June 30. Continued from Page 1 of coverage — now applying to 62 million persons — to another 10 million. He recommended tha doctors be included, but neither house went along with him on thai score. There is considerable disparity in the types and numbers of persons who would be brought under social security under the Senate and House bills. The House bill calls for coverage of 3,600,000 farm operators, about 400,000 professionals and 150,000 federal workers all of whom Rebel Gets Last Laugh CHARLESTON, s. C. (/P)—Raymond V. Hunter came home from New York City with the last laugh on a damyankee crook. Hunter's pocket was picked in the- big city. But all he lost,.was a big roll of imitation Confederate $"00 notes the Charleston Chamber of ommerce is distributing as a goodwill stunt. could make it to the State Department to pick up the formal notification that Rastvorov was, as the Russians have been saying for seven months, in American hands. Last week Zarubin had been at the State Department inquiring into Rastv'orov's whereabouts. The department promised some news shortly, then asked him in yesterday 1*4 hours before the Rastvo- rov news conference. But Zarubin, not officially told Rastvorov would be the subject of his call, apparently got windof it and stayed away. Department spokesmen said this was an "unprecedented" breach of protocol but they did not consider it a rebuff. Later, it developed there might have been a misunderstanding about the time for delivery of the note, and from whom Zarubin should get it. No Documents Rastvorov's disappearance last Jan. 24 was to counter-espionage agents of the West, the biggest break since code clerk Igor Gou- zenko fled the Soviet embassy at Ottawa in 1945 with an armload of secret documents. Rastvorov told his news conference yesterday he brought out no documents. But he did bring a detailed knowledge of how a Soviet spy ring works — something Gou- zenko was ki no position to know. • Rastvorov, saying he had told all he knows to U.S. authorities, would not reveal methods or techniques at the news conference. Again, he pleaded security. State Department Press officer Henry Suydam opened the news conference by reading a Depart- ment of Justice Statement announcing Rastvorov had . been granted U.S. entrance temporarily under State Department auspices. Then he read Rastvorov's signed request for asylum. It was dated the day 'he bolted and said: "I, Yuri Alexandrovich Rastvo- rov, motivated solely by my own wishes ,onfp drlaciiota eroass n,l hereby request the United States government for political asylum." Finally, with a flourish, Suydam introduced Raetvorov, who read a prepared statement — first in Rus- were cut out of the Senate bill by the Finance Committee. Furthermore, the House bill would blanket -in some 1,300,000 farm hands. — about half the number provided in the Senate bill. The Senate bill would cover some 3,500.000 state and local government employes and 260,000 clergymen on a voluntary basis, 250,000 domestics. 100,000 industrial home workers, 50,000 in the fishing industry and — added in amendments last night — funeral directors and missionaries outside the country.

State Hit By Costly Blazes By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Fires yesterday destroyed the Lincoln Oak Flooring plant at Star City, Ark., brought about 200 volunteer firefighters into service at Clarksville, and burned over a total of 2,335 acres of land in 19 separate forest fires. Loss at the oak flooring plant at Star City was estimated at $150,000. Chief Deputy Sheriff Victor Felley said about 200 volunteers turned out there in a vain effort to halt the blaze. At Clarksville woods and grass was burned and fire threatened to close in on the city itself as another 200 men fought to stop. it. U. S, Forest Ranger Leonard Bradley said the blaze, which was halted just a quartermile from the public, will be conducted ""at "lO i city ' s air P° rt ' started from a trash - - •- fire. Bradley said one unidentified family, caught in the middle of the sweeping fire, had a bit of "Friday TO LEAD KEVIVAL — The Rev.

CHINA Continued from Page 1 must stand in battle readiness and fight for the liberation of Taiwan." Other Red Chinese have said the same in other words. Today's speech gave the program a touch of authentic belligerence. After vowing to take Formosa, Chou said China intended to live in peaceful coexistence with the rest of the world. He reiterated the five principles which he outlined when seeking nonaggression pacts with India and Burma after the Geneva conference. The five points: Mutual respect of each others territorial integrity. -. Nonaggression. Noninterference in each others internal affairs. Equality and mutual benefit. Peaceful coexistence. In touching on each of these five points, Chou referred constantly and harshly to "United States ag- xessive circles." 16 Bail Out as AF Tanker Crashes NEWARK, Ohio (£») — Sixteen crewmen bailed out of their huge Air Force tanker yesterday before t crashed in a cornfield near Buckeye Lake. The pilot, Capt. George French. 32, of Los Angeles, ordered the ship abandoned after one of its bur engines caught fire and two others went dead. Three of those who bailed out were injured—none seriously. The plane was on a routine train- ng flight from Dow Air Force Base near Bangor, Me. Cause of he accident was undetermined. Walter Armstrong Services for Walter Armstrong, 65, who died Monday at his home at Driver, will be conducted at 2 p.m. tomorrow at Macedonia Baptist Church by Rev. R. T. Shipp, pastor. Burial will be in Wilson Cemetery at Wilson with Caston Funeral Home in charge. Survivors include a nephew, Silas Cephus of Driver. Escaped Convicts Are Captured PUTNAM, Conn, (fp)— Five armed desperadoes who fled Norfolk Prison Colony in Massachusetts with a guard hostage were taken into custody last night after a swill-moving three-state manhunt. The escapees, rounded up in Rhode Island and Connecticut less than 24 hours after they fled the Massachusetts prison, were return•ed to Boston for arraignment today before a U.S. commissioner on double kidnap charges and possible life imprisonment. (Continued from Pftf« W following that period become as drunk as he had ever been in his life. Why? It is because the reason for him drinking in the first place has not been removed, only suppressed. An alcoholic is usually regretful of the past and afraid of the future and will not even agree to "swear off" for a given period of time. * * * KNOWING HOW the alcoholic brain functions, AA has based its action of recovery upon the theory j of- "live one day at a, time." In accordance with this idea, they promptly admitted It. "11.

He said the family, fearing loss of the home, had moved furniture out of the house. Volunteer firefighters stalled the fire and saved the house. The furniture? It burned. Meanwhile other fires were reported at Dierks, Ark., where 2,000 acres was ablaze. State Foresters, however, reported most of the fires under control. Two homes near the Hot Springs Highway - Barrow road junction west of Little Rock, valued at $5,000 were burned. Tom Foster, a member of a volunteer fire fighting association near Little Rock, said there were but no one to fight other fires them. Fires in the Ozark area also de- str ed two houses. 'Poker Game' Here Turns Out to Be Checkers Blytheville Police this morning were asked to investigate what appeared — through a window, at least — to be a poker game in progress at the' Blytheville Women's Club on West Main Street. On investigation, the "gambling" turned out to be a game of checkers, similarity of the checkers to a stack of chips notwithstanding. "There are two days in every week about which we should not worry; two days we should be free from fear and apprehension. "One of these days is yesterday with its mistakes and cares, its faults and blunders, its aches and pains. Yesterday has passed forever beyond our control. We cannot undo a single act or erase a single word said. "The other day is tomorrow — it also is beyond our immediate control. "This leaves only one day — today. Any man can fight the battle for just one day. Let us, therefore, live but one day at a time." «• * « AFTER AN alcoholic is brought back to good physical health and gains, the right mental attitude, he is then ready to begin the long climb up the ladder of 12 steps to complete sobriety. These steps are— "1. We admitted we are powerless over alcohol — that our lives had become unmanageable. "2, Came to believe that a power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity. "3. Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God, as we understand him. "•4. Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves. "5. Admitted to God, to ourselves and to another human being the exact nature of our wrong. j "6. Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character. "7. Humbly ask him to remove our shortcomings. "8. Made a list of all persons we have harmed; and become willing to make amends to them all. "9. Made direct ajnends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others. "10.

In One of His Series of Gospel Sermons Tonight's Subject: "The Beginning:." Sunday Morning: "Christian Responsibility to the Local Church." Sunday Evening: "Essentials in Conversion." THE WORD God sometimes stops an alcoholic when he begins reading the 12 steps, because he is not ready to approach his recovery program from that angle. It is suggested by AA that in that case he substitute whatever name he wished to call the Supreme Being. Possibly he has been approached on. the moral side of the question before and found that it did not work for him. After an alcoholic begins to live one day at a time and to progress along the road to complete sobriety, he usually finds that he can best .retain his sobriety by helping other alcoholics. He realizes that he has found something and feels an urge to give it to someone who doesn't have it. Knowing the state his own alcoholic brain was in and the attitude he took towards people who tried to help him, he knows that only an alcoholic who has reached, sobriety can attain "common ground" with another alcoholic. Estimates of AA members on the number of alcoholics in Blytheville runs into the hundreds. When asked why they had not become affiliated with AA, these said that they were mostly ashamed of it and did not want ttieir friends and neighbors to know. It is hard for them, I was told, to admit to themselves that they are alcoholics. Although they may recognize that they have a drinking problem, they do not want to be called an alcoholic. * » * THE HARDEST person to reach, I was told, is the woman alcoholic. This is because she is usually pro-: tected by her family and if she is! married it is not required that she! leave the house or be seen in public. At an AA meeting can be seen men and women from all walks of life. I saw some and was told of many others. Alcoholism, has no respect for rank or position. Members of AA in the United States range from average working men through doctors, lawyers, prominent business men, judges and clergy, men of many faiths. The reason for keeping strict anonymonity in AA is to protect th« families of the alcoholic and to safeguard his business. If anyone wishes to write to AA for information about aid for themselves or some member of their family they can do so by addrest- ing their letters to: Secretary. Alcoholics Anonymous Box 873, Blytheville If the letter is about a personal matter, it should be marked "Confidential" so that it will only b« opened by the proper person. All correspondence is kept in strictest confidence. The omy requirement to become a member of AA in any case is an honest desire to stop drinking. Know The Law!
