PACK TWELVK President Asks Full Funds for 'Point Four'Plan (•not* Committee May Reconsider Move to Cut Totai WASHINGTON, July 11. m — President. Truman today asked Senate leaders to restore the full 1:35,000,000 h« has requested tor (lie "Point Four" program of aid to backward lands. Senator Alexander Smith (R-NJ) told reporters after a While House conference with Mr. Trunmn that the Senate Appropriations Committee "probably will reconsider 1 ' Us decision to cut the funds. The committee had voted to reduce to »10.000.000 the fund to start technical aid to underdeveloped countries. The money would be provided in the $34.688.000,000 single- package appropriations bill which came up for Senate consideration today. The House, meanwhile, look up a comp&nton "Point Pour" proposal to guarantee some U.S. Investments abroad. Its fate was uncertain In view of the Korean crisis. Mr. Truman also asked the Senate delegation, made up of four Democrats and four Republicans from the Foreign Relations and Appropriations committees, to support money requests for the Stntc Department's "Voice of America." The President did not cite specific figures in connection with the foreign broadcast service, the Senators said. Congress has received proposals for a big expansion of "Voice" broadcasts since the outbreak of shooting In Korea. Smith said the President stressed "the need of more funds for Point J»our." When asked whether this" meant he wanted the Senate to override the appropriations group's action, Smith said he felt this would be unnecessary. "I think the appropriations committee probably will decide to reconsider the question In the light of the situation as presented by the President," he said. There was no Immediate comment from Chairman McKellar <D-Tenn) of the Appropriations Committee, although he was in the group'that spent a half an hour In Mr. Truman's office. The $250,000.000 guarantee bill wa* the day's major business before the House, although a final vote may be put over to Wednesday. Plan Civilian Defense ALBANY, N.

Perplexecl Police Ponder Case Of Car Theft that Wasn't Theft The case of Blyihevllle'x brazen car thief went on the books today as solved but there's still quite a bit of hend-scratchlng going on. It happened thts way: W. M. HlBckwoort of 10J5 West Ash St. reported co Slate Trooper George irwln and Blytlicvllle jwlice that he parked his car, a 1950 model Chevrolet, near the Arkansas-Missouri power Company's office at the Intersection of Main nnd Fifth Street shortly afler noon yesterday while he went to purchase a package of clgarcts. He wns gone only a few minutes but when he returned his car was gone. He couldn't understand it. He had taken the keys with him yet the "thief" had made off with his car In a matter of minutes. A radio alarm was sounded U> Ihree counties and two slates. Anil (hen loea! officers went to work. An hour or so later the car was found In th« rear of B. F, Goodrich Store at 417 West Main which Is In the same block as Arkansas- Missouri Power Company. They went into the store and started asX-lng questions. This was the answer: One of the tire store's customers had given his car key to an employee of the store and told him to get his car and check the wheels. H was a 1950 Chevrolet and was parked near the place where Air. Blnckwood had parked his car. Tile store attendant went to the parking place but got Mr. Blackwood's car instead.

S. around Korean waters and around Formosa during world War II, are the biggest hazard to Navy opera- lions in those areas today. They have drifted since being planted and nobody knows where they are. It's practically impassible to sweep them by ordinary methods. Not anticipating the need for detonating our own mines, a method for doing it safely was overlooked when the JULV 11, mines were developed. They've betn paying /abuious wages to civilian crews who man ships which deliberately sail over the lost mines to set them olf. The crews wear football helmels and are heavily padded to protect them from the underwater blasts. Surplus cargo ships are being used In this ticklish business. In spite of the big pay, It's plenty hard to get volunteers for the job.
