Little Rock Based Planes May Take Part in Arm Inpection . Their income was $174.549.000 tor Uie Jammry-throUKh-June period ol this year compared with $167,018.000 for (he corresponding six months of 1954, the Agriculture Department reports. This was the reverse of the Irenti in most sUtes. The fipures represent cash receipts of marketings of crops and livestock.

ICA lirst announced it was sending 10.000 tons of wheat to India. Gathings immediately asked ICA officials why rice couldn't be used also since India is a rice-eating country. After some study the ICA agreed to ship some 10.000 tons of surplus U. S. rice to southern India for distribution In flooded areas. This rice will come from surplus stocks of the Commodity Credit Corporation (CCA). ICA officials say it will be principally Southern rice of the medium grain type.
