BLTngygJJ (ARK.)' • WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 11, IMg Rep. Trimble Wants Decision This Year on Water Projects By GORDON BROWN WASHINGTON (AP)—This is the year Rep. Trimble wants a decision on whether Con- jriii or the Budget Bureau has the say in determing what water projects shall be built. Trimble maintains it is the prerogative of Congress to say whether a flood control- power dam is feasible. But he says the Buget Bureau, under the Republicans, has usurped •MS right. Last year Trimble Introduced tewlution to spell out that Congress and not* the bureau Is to establish fee criteria for determining (Utility of such projects. Now be is seeking support of the House leadership to get the legislation before the House. ••» used to be that Congress would instruct the Army Engineers to/determine whether a project was economically feasible under a certain set of criteria," he said. Pretty Tough "K the Engineers said it was feasible and Congress authorized a project, then it was built when" ever money was made available, "The engineers were pretty tough about this. But in the past three years the Budget Bureau has taken it upon itself to decide whether a specific project is feasible. B changed the criteria, and projects which once were economically justifiable now are no longer feasible under the bureau standards." This .Trimble says, is a matter of fundamental principle and he wants Congress to assert its right "I have no objection if the Budget Bureau finds that a certain project doesn't fit in with the President's program or is too costly," • he said. "That is one thing. But for the bureau to say that a project Congress found to be feasible no longer is feasible is another thing." The whole Sikig, of course, rep resents a clash in philosophy between the old Democratic idea o building power dams sand the Eisenhower administration's idea. Formerly these projects wen built as public power projects. Un der the Republicans the emphasis has been shifted from public pow> er to the idea of "partnership' projects or private power development. Congress Should Say But Trimble contends that gardless of what the policy is to be, it should be set by Congress. He is concerned because the bureau, by changing-the standard and declaring a larger share, oj the cost should be charged to power, has ruled economically unjustified several proposed projects in Arkansas, including Lone Bock and Gilbert. Trimble said he wants to persuade Congress to vote funds for Lone Rock and Gilbert this year but that the Budget Bureau position is a big hurdle. Also on his list of things to be done this year, Trimble said, are these: Help the rest of the Arkansas delegation get funds for the Arkansas River development program, including Dardanelle Dam; get adr nitional planning funds for Beaver Dam, and help Rep. Mills get con- Factory Nurseries Entice British Women to Work LONDON ffl — Tucked away to a | led to a booming demand for wom- qulet corner .of a factory yard, 20 children play in a nursery — symbols of a silent revolution that has altered the pattern of British fam- «r life. . '-Before-World War n, only 900,000 British wives went out to work. Now nearly 4,000,000 are working. that is a third of all women and girls of working age in the country. Sociologists:and child welfare experts are worried. Tens of thousands of babies are taken daily by their mothers to factory and workshop nurseries. Hundreds of thou- ; sands of. schoolchildren come home to empty houses, letting themselves in with their own keys and preparing the kitchen for their mothers' return. Pull employment in Britain has en workers — and the women are cashing in. John Watson, chairman of London's famous Tower Bridge Magistrates Court, said recently: "A race of children Is growing up whom .1 call 'latchkey children/' Mothers who go to work . . . are a major cause of juvenile crime." But Ronald Ledger, who represents industrial Romford in Parliament, said, "It is not the bad moth- struction funds for Greets Perry Dam. .All of this might have to be done, he Said, over Budget Bureau opposition. A prize winning essay by Mrs. W J. Baerg, of Fayetteville, Ark., on "Why I Like To Live in Our Town," has been called to the attention of Congress by Sen. Fulbright whose home also happens to be Fayetteville. En placing Mrs. Baerg's essay in the Congressional Record. Ful- brlght invited his colleagues to visit Fayetteville which he de- cirbed as "one of the most hpanM- or rare Massachusetts To Resume Polio Shots BOSTON 1*1 — After months of delay Massachusetts — center of a summer polio epidemic — has decided to resume a mass program of Salk vaccine inoculations. The Massachusetts Polio Advisory Committee recommended Monday night that the more recently produced vaccine is sufficiently safe to be given on a mass scale to schoolchildren. / The decision leaves Idaho as the only state which has not given a green light to the Salk vaccine. In its report, the 19-member committee of prominent Bay State physicians said, "The protection to be expected (from the vaccine) is now greater than the potential risk to the vaccinated individual and to those with whom he domes in contact." The committee noted, however, that "total freedom from live virus cannot be assured in this vaccine and that the vaccine may possibly, ful and most hospitable of cities." Carl Whillock, of Clinton, Ark., state representative from Van Buren county, has come to Washington as a member of Trimble's staff. A veteran of World War n, Whillock holds a degree in business administration. He brought his wife and three children with him. Rep. Patman has introduced a bill to provide that on "census and other government reports it shall be Texarkana, U. S. A., rather than Texarkana, Ark., and Texar- fcana, Tex. "As far as our population goes, we are all one city," Fatman said. "We have a population of over 50,000. I think- the census report should show that Texarkana, U.S.A Is a city of that size." Hi - Memphis Admits Defeat in Speed Trap Sign Case MEMPHIS, Tenn. (/P)—This city has admitted defeat in itc attempt to punish a man who waved a sign warning drivers of a radar speed trap ahead. In the same breath It gave notice yesterday that since Jan, 3 It has had a law on the books that will take care of such situations In the future. The legal twist which Asst. City Atty. Frierson Graves cited says no one can "show any sign which attempts to direct panting or movement of traffic."

He did very well until a suspicious cop backtraclted along the street to see down. what was slowing things sease in those vaccinated and their contacts." "Furthermore," the report continued, "it recognizes that the search still continues for a suitable substitute for the virulent Mahoney strain." Physicians were advised to administer vaccine made -according to new methods of production and additional safety tests. The committee said there is no evidence that the recent Massachusetts polio epidemic which hit 3,881 persons and took 163 lives was caused by the vaccine.
