turn BLYTHEVILLB (ARK.)' COURIER IfBWI Collapse of Jordan Water Plan Feared By JOHN SCAM WASHINGTON (<VP) — The American-backed Jordan River development plan, conceived as formula for ending bitter Arab-Jewish strife, is reported on the verge of collapse. ~~~ "~~ Diplomatic officials fear that renewed Arab opposition may have killed the ambitious undertaking— at least for the time being. That raises the prospect Israel will go ahead to develop the river in the lace of violent Arab protests. Any such Israeli move would be virtually certain to add new tensions in the region already seething with excitement over Egypt's plans to buy arms from Communist Czechoslovakia. Still Has Hope Farm Land Values Show Increase WASHINGTON W) — An Agriculture Department survey showed today that if there is any pessimism among farmers over farm product price declines, it is not showing up in market. booming farm real estate The department said farm land values on July 1 averaged 5 per cent higher than a year earlier and 3 per cent higher than on March 1 of this year- — even though farm product prices have slumped some 5 per cent below a year ago. Compared with a year earlier, land values in 36 states showed gains of 2 per cent or more. Only three states — Maine, Vermont and Wyoming — reported values significantly below a year earlier. The department said the strength of the farm land market during the last 18 months has been unusual in view of downward trends in farm commodity prices and income. "Based on past relationships, one would have expected land values to remain stable or to decline slightly in the last year," it said. The agency listed four factors as contributing to the strength of the farm real estate market: 1. A strong demand for more land to enlarge existing farms so that mechanization might be used more fully to cut costs per unit of farm output. 2. More liberal lending policies by several classes of lenders, notably Insurance companies and federal land banks. 3. Favorable crop prospects. 4. A. buoyancy in, and bright outlook for, the general economy. Jutt Exercising LOS ANGELES (fl>) — Elmer the elephant was standing in the front of an automobile agency as a sales promotion stunt. Apparently bored with it all, he wrapped his trunk around a parking meter, twisted off the head and dropped it to the pavement. The City Traffic Department sent the agency a bill for (14.95. The Eisenhower administration has not given up hope that Arab countries, led by Egypt, will reconsider their newest objections. The American plan would have linked four Arab states, Lebanon, Syria, Jordan and Egypt, with Is'rael in a joint 121-million-dollnr dam-building and irrigation project which would have permitted all to share the Jordan water: Eric Johnston. President Eisenhower's special ambassador in charge of promoting the plan, is scheduled to return Saturday from a visit to Cairo, where he apparently has been unable to persuade Arab countries to back the idea. The Arab countries asked for more time to study the proposal. But diplomatic officials familiar with the background said today this amounted to a thinly disguised turndown, even though Johnston said afterward he hoped difficulties could be resolved in the near future. Within Two Weeks What most officials fear now Is that Israel will resume the Jordan River development project within its own borders which it abandoned two years ago after Syria threatened to protest to the United Nations Security Council. With two weeks intensive work, it is believed, the Israelis could completely divert the Jordan Stiver from flowing into the neighboring country of Jordan. Ironically, Jordan is reported to be the one Arab country in favor of the Johnston plan. The apparent breakdown in negotiations has added to the growing alarm within the State Department over the possibility of a new outbreak of fighting between Israel and its Arab rivals.
