West Germany has asked thej United Slates for the loan of 12 J destroyers for sis years—or until the Oermans can build their own. Bonn also has asked Britain to sell six frigates as training ships. The exact number of destroyers planned for the new navy is an official secret. But defense ministry sources say there will be around 60 organized in 10 squadrons. The destroyers will be small—about 2,200 tons. Submarines will be limited to 300 tons in siaz. Zenker says the}' will be able to travel submerged for 10 days.

They bolstered this belief by citing the President's assertion that "many tasks still await action." Significantly, perhaps, the President said that "the present and future are heavy with challenge, rich with opportunity." Saying that his future role remains undetermined, he said his answer on a possible second term bid "will be forthcoming as quickly as it is firmly fixed in my mind." Almost without exception the Republcan speakers at dinners across the country stressed a "peace and prosperity" tiieme. to which they added pledges of efforts to raise the income of the farmers. They said the nation's defenses are in excellent shape and defended Eisenhower's foreign polices as aimed at promoting peace. Some of the speakers compared Eisenhower with Washington or Lincoln or Benjamin Franklin. Most said, as Secretary of Interior McKay put it as Casper, Wyo.. that the administration had turned the country- "free from the path toward socialism." Eisenhower himself appeared to be more frank than most of the GOP orators in describing the current world situation as an "uneasy peace." He said in this connection that his administration has made certain that "our defenses are alert and strong; that our partnerships with others are based on deep friendships and common great purposes; that gradually the truth of our nationXpeaceful goals and our respects for the rights of others is brought to all peoples o€ the Obituary eae a Ex-Resident Dies In Hayti Hospital Monroe (Shorty) Abernethy, a former Blytheville resident, died at Hayti's Pcmiscot Memorial Hospital early this morning after a two- week illness.

BELGAUM AND POONA—Rioters pressed demands that Bombay and Belgaum be included in the new Maratha state. Train service was still crippled in Bombay State and many telephone and telegraph lines were down. Prom East India came reports of other disturbance. Orissa State was reported hit by a general strike protesting the proposal to annex part of the state to its northern neighbors Bihar t and West Bengal. ; In Calcutta another genera! strike began over Bengali claims that the state's reorganizations plans had not met their claims for parts of Bihar State. Scattered demonstrations were reported in Bihar State protesting against any of that state going to Wes Bengal. Bombay authorities canceled a scheduled appearance here last night of American evangelist Billy Graham. They acted under an emergency measure banning any public gathering of more than five persons. . However, they permitted Graham to meet with 1.500 Indian Christian missionaries in a local auditorium.

Thomas E. Dewey of New York sounded almost identical notes in defending the administration's foreign policies. They said, in effect, that the Eisenhower administration has let the world know that America is strong and will strike back at any aggressor. Nixon, speaking in Chicago, took occasion also to deny that the Eisenhower administration is "too liberal, too new dealish." Tilling the Illinois Republicans that "the American people are not going to stand still," Nixon said: "The choice is not between the Eisenhower thing more tween the and something far more radical." No Prediction Sherman Adams , chief presidential aide, told a Hartford, Conn., audience that it seems evident to him that "the country wants the Eisenhower kind of government and the Eisenhower kind of Republicanism."

The Internal Revenue Service says the case involving the retired headwaiter, Hans Paul, probably will touch off an investigation in this area of hotels and catering services at which workers make most of their money in tips. Paul, 63, now is vacationing in Miami, Fla. He was indicted yesterday on a charge of failing to report the tips in his earnings during the four years preceding his retirement. The government says Paul's salary during that period was $3,000 a year. Asst. U. S. Atty. David Jaffe estimated Paul cheated the government out of nearly $25,000 in taxes. ing Hendrix College, Conway, are members of the Hendrix Varsity Band.

W—Officers held a young would-be bank robber without charge today and looked for his accomplice who fled in their getawa-y car. I. C. Kelly, 18-year-old Negro, was captured by a 25-man posse 40 minutes after he took $150 from a depositor in .the Bank of Inverness yesterday- Officers said Kelly identified his accomplice as William .Burke, 26, of Chicago. They said Burke apparently ran away in the car when plans fell through to rob the bank. Kelly, his face partially masked, entered the bank, pointed a pistol at Miss Carolyn Kennedy, a teller, and demanded money. David Wood, who later said the gunman appeared nervous, offered his $150 deposit. The robber kept repeating he wanted money and Wood threw his $150 on the floor. The gunman TRAFFIC from Pige N nect with Highland north of town.

Before being put into flnal form, these plans will be checked with the University of Arkansas city planners who have been working "on a city plan for Blytheville for several months, he said. Buchanan pointed out that he will have Court address a meeting of picked up the money and ran. Patrolmen said Kelly admitted the robbery after the money was found on him. He implicated two other men besides Burk, but officers said they were not involved.

Nearby was a box the pup had apparently knocked' from a windowsill. It previously contained Mrs. Johnson's energy pills. "She had eaten a whole month's supply of pills prescribed by my doctor," said Mrs. Johnson. "Now she just can't stay still." A veterinarian said Susan should be all right, but that when she calms down she'll have something resembling a king-size hangover. downtown merchants and other interested persons to explain the purpose of the traffic improvements.
