The county agent said he has been in the field since Monday morning investigating crops where the weed-kiling chemical was used, and that so far only seven farmers have reported damage. Most of the damage acreage Is being replanted. He said that In practically every case of damage it was to a 'relatively small acreage" as the chemical is being used by farmers In this area mostly on an experimental basis. . Most Damage at Dell The largest amount of damage reported to Mr. Bilbrey so far was from B. S. Simmons at Dell who replanted 110 acres of damaged cotton yesterday, Mr. Bilbrey said. County agents in Southern Arkansas and in Mississippi have reported that several thousand acres of cotton has been killed and have blamed the damage on an apparent chemicl hcange in the widely usec Insecticide. ^ Mr. Bilbrey said that while dam age from use of the chemical wa. reported, at least two planters.

GROUND BROKEN FOR HOSPITAL County Judge Fairer White shovels up dirt to begin ofti- cially construction o[ the Blytheville unit ol Mississippi County's new hospital.

The units, one here and one at O&ceola, are to be finished in about a year, the architect said. Blytheville's unit is located in the extreme northwest corner of the city. (Courier News Photo) Hearing Set for June City Attorney Percy Wright said a City Council hearing must be arranged so both parties can present their arguments before a decision is made and the hearing was set for the regular, June meeting of the cou^cU^ •: IP Sti and in Mr. Rose's cose he. applied the chemical early and planted his cocton too deep. Scattered the chemical "A little later. Mr. Rose cultivated his cotton with a rotary hoe which scattered the chemical and this probably is one reason why his cotton was not damaged," Mr. Bilbrey said. In practically every case of damage reported, the county agent said, cotton was already up at the tme of last week's rains. The weed-killing; chemical, according to Mr. Bilbrey. is sprayed into the soil In liquid form at plant- Ing time. The liquids then evaporate •leaving a dlnitro compond on the lop soil. Exact cause of the cotlon damage Is not known; he said, but it is assumed that the rains splashed the chemical on to the cotton or wind blew the plants over into the chemical. . Report Tvo Damage D. V. Malocli, county agent for South Mississippi County, could not be contacted by telephone this morning regarding damage in that area, but an Associated Press dispatch yesterday quoted both H F Ohlendorf of Grider and Bill Joe Denton, manager of the Grain plantation at Wilson as saying they used See COTTON on r-» Ke 5 oughfare lor some time and adjacent property owners did not object !o the moVE.

Koyt ol Leachville told the Dell Kiwanis Club last night. Mr. Hoyt. who Is associated with B. C. Land Company of Leachville, was one of a group of planters who went to Kingston, Jamaica, early this year lo negotiate for West Indian cotton field labor. Other states have use for these Negro laborers, he said, and the Jamaicans would most likely travel through agricultural areas ranging from Florida to Wisconsin in a single season. A typical "circuit," he explained would be field work in Florida, cotton chopping In Arkansas, berry-picking in Wisconsin, back to Arkansas for the cotton harvesf thence back lo Florida and final!) return to Jamaica. Farmers here will be require to pay these workers an average $3r. every two weeks, Mr. Hoi said.

He has been doing almost, all of the talking at recent meetings. Today he injected the Ko]e Island Prison Camp kidnaping of Brig. Gen. Francis T. Dodd into the nc- jotialions. Nam II charged tho Allies were treating: prisoners inhumanely. He said this was proved by conces- which Brig. Oeii. Charles F. Colson granted Red prisoners last week to effect Dodd'.s release. The very wording which Nam I! quolcd was previously labeled by the U.S. military command in Washington as misleading. Colson was replaced yesterday as Koje commandant. Vice Adm. C. Turner Joy said Nam II brought up the newest 'incident on turbulent Koje solely "to Propagandize from this tent rather than act seriously in interest of an armistice." "It is equally apparent." Joy told Nam, "that the major reason for such obstruction tactics is your fear of open joint screening of prisoners of war. conducted under fair nnd equitable circurn.stnnccs." Screening Is Basis Screening of prisoners, and what they said during the process, is tho basis of the Allied armistice package, the issue over which talks are deadlocked, and a motivating factor of Red POWs in kldnapinff Dodd, then Koje prison commander, last Wednesday. The U.N. Command said only PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The CIO United Steelworkers hinted broadly today there would lie a new steel strike unless America's steel industry conies to terms—and very soon. • The threat of a walkout that would again idle some 650,000 workers in Ihe sleel mills was contained in a resolution up lor consideration by Ihe 2,500 delegates to the union's'sixth biennial constitutional convention. The resolution flatly declares. "The crisis in the steel Industry must be promptly resolved." There were no its, ands or bills. More bluntly it says: "We cannot and will not continue indefinitely to work in 1952 for 1950 wages nnd working conditions. "We cannot and will not continue Indefinitely to work without satisfactory collective bargaining contracts." Delegates Stand United Philip Murray, president of the 1,100,000-mombnr union, In a 34- page special report entitled "The Dispute With the Steel Industry" wrote that the delegates "stand united in their determination to win a just and fair settlement." Murray, in strong language that is duplicated word-by-word !.". the convention resolution, charged the crisis "remains unresolved because steel management wants it so. "The companies In the steel industry created the crisis by refusing to bargain in good faith. They have perpetuated the crisis by refusing to comply with the government's moderate compromise recommendations. "They have sought to. use the crisis as a bludgeon to wreck our stabilization program and to extort inflationary, price increases from the government." • Discussion of the steel dispute resolution was expected to be the first order of business after an address to the delegates by Secretary of Labor Maurice Tobin. Vice President Alben W. Barklcy is the scheduled afternoon speaker. Delegates, in unanimous action, passed n resolution urging contln- Slarr WSB Set to put Ceiling On Pay Hikes for 'Oil' WASHINGTON W—The Wage Stabilization Board was primed today to clamp a general but flexible celling on the amount of wage increases 90.000 striking oil workers might get under anti-inflation rules The strike entered its third week, with no signs of early settlement * T " e WSB, In studying six scat- ered wage pacts already reached n the Industry, obviously hoped hat Ihe amount it allows will act •\s a guldepost to more than 20 mions engaged in the strike ngainst he nation's major oil companies. \nd company and union officials said they hoped Ihe same thing.
