PAGE TEK BLTTHEYTLLB (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS Conferees Again Try To Settle Last Major Block in Farm Bill WASHINGTON (AP) — Senate-House conferees try again today to settle their differences over price support levels for dairy products — the last major obstacle to the writing of a compromise farm bill. Argument over dairy supports led to an angry breakdown of talks Saturday but conference leaders later agreed to another meeting today after a weekend cooling-off period. The renewal of talks was negotiated by Sen. Aiken (R-Vt) and Rep. Hope (R- T; :an), who head the agriculture committees and the conferees of the two houses. This was viewed as a sign that Aiken and Hope were still optimistic about chances of a dairy dispute compromise. Senate conferees have said this Is the last major roadblock to complete agreement on a farm bill that would carry out President Eisenhower's plan for a shift to flexible price supports on five basic crops.

Aiken, with powerful backing from Eisenhower and Secretary of Agriculture Benson, wants hold price supports for butter, cheese, milk and other dairy products at the present level. Benson last April cut dairy props from 90 to 75 per cent of parity. Stiff Battle Parity is a price standard said by law to be fair in relation to farm costs. The Senate, after a stiff floor battle, approved the lower dairy support level although the House had voted for an increase to 80 per cent, effective between Sept. 1 and next April. The House also inserted directives for fixing the dairypric e props after that date while the Senate voted to bring under price payments now-unsupported milk and butterfat. Aiken said the Senate group would not accept the higher House supports but might agree to several related House dairy provisions not included in the Senate bill. These include disposal of the government's butter and cheese surpluses through military and Veterans Administration channels and a special 15-rnillion-dollar annual fund to eradicate brucellosis, a livestock disease that has hit many dairy herds. Near Solution Aiken and other Senate conferees said they had expected a final compromise only a few minutes before the flareup late Saturday. They said other points in dispute could be quickly adjusted and that tentative compromises had been reached on these points; 1. Elimination of a House-approved wheat program that would have set different prices for wheat sold at home and abroad. The President opposed this. 2. Elimination of a Senate-approved proposal for management of grazing and other lands under the Forest Service, which the President had asked. 3. A special program of production or incentive payments for domestic wool producers, retaining part of the House restrictions which the President had asked be removed. 4. An adjustment between Senate and House versions for the "commercial wheat area." States exempted would avoid controls and penalties but also could not qualify for the authorized support levels. The House had voted to exclude eight states, the Senate to exclude 20, and the compromise Would exclude 12 where average annual wheat production has been less than 25,000 acres in recent years.

CLEVELAND (fl — Evidence in the six-week-old Marilyn Sheppard murder case goes to the grand jury today — if County Prosecutor Frank T. Cullitan has his way. Also scheduled for today is a preliminary hearing on the first- degree murder charge against Dr. Samuel H. Sheppard, 30-year-old osteopath accused of clubbing his pregnant wife to death. The prosecutor, seeking to prevent disclosure of evidence to defense attorneys, hopes to obtain a continuance of the preliminary hearing from Common Pleas Judge William K, Thomas. Then he could present his case to the grand jury secretly. If no continuance is granted, the prosecutor will make his presentation after the hearing, and expects to do so by tomorrow at the latest. A preliminary hearing determines whether sufficient evidence exists to hold a prisoner for grand jury action. However, in Ohio, a prosecutor may submit evidence without waiting for the preliminary hearing. As homicide detectives continued their investigation into the July 4 murder, quarterback Otto Graham of the Cleveland Browns professional football team appeared at police headquarters yesterday with his wife. The Grahams, friends of the Sheppards, said they knew little about the relationship existing between the osteopath and his wife. Homicide Capt. David E. Kerr said the questioning had been purely of a routine nature and was TAXES NOTICE Notice is hereby given that the undersigned has filed with the Commission of Revenues of the State of Arkansas for permit to sell and dispense beer at, retail on the premises described as Walls Street, Blytheville, Mississippi County, Arkansas.

Continued from Paft 1 McCarthy, who was given the right to cross-examine witnesses, said this "indicates complete lack of courage not to stand up and say under oath what he told the enate and it's an insult to the Senate to skip the country." A new report involving McCarthy, which may wind up as one of the documents before the Watkins committee, may be finished this week by the Senate Investigations subcommittee, which p r o b ed charges between McCarthy and ! Secretary of the Army Stevens 'and their aides. Subcommittee members said over the weekend they are likely to settle on a bipartisan finding that McCarthy condoned the use of alleged improper pressure by Roy M. Ccihn to get favored Army treatment for Pvt. G. David Schine. Cohn, now resigned, was the subcommittee's chief counsel dunijg the period in dispute and Schine was a staff member before being drafted. On the other hand, they said Stevens is expected to be criticized for a lack of firmness in dealing with McCarthy and Cohn.
