In his address, interrupted frequently by applause, he quoted from 'Department of Agriculture figures which he said showed that farm income had dropped four billion dollars from 1952 to the end of 1955. "Obviously," he said, "this is another 'brink' policy of the Eisenhower administration. "While Secretary Dulles brags about leading the nation to the •brink' of war and then miraculously pulling it back, the administration and Secretary Benson are leading the American farmer to the brink of bankruptcy. . . .

(Courier News Photo) !KE (Continued from Page 1) said he sincerely believes that his request for authority to make long-term foreign aid commitments is in the best interests of the United States. He added that he is going to stand by that request as long 1 as he feels he has a chance to get it through Congress. Eisenhower also said he believes there has been some misunderstanding* regarding that request in Congress, where such influential lawmakers as Chairman George (D-Ga) of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, and Senate GOP Leader Knowland (Calif) have voiced opposition. * * * SCHOOL PROGRAM — Regard- in 'proposals in Congress to write an anti-segregation amendment into the administration's school co- struction bill, Eisenhower said, as he did last June on a related matter, that in general he is against amending legislation in that way. He said he believes that nothing should be written into the bil which would delay the school construction program. That would confuse the issues, he said. The President added emphatically that the Supreme Court's desegregation ruling must be implemented, but he noted that the court Itself called for gradual implementation. TAXES - Eisenhower said that goodness knows he is anxious to have taxes reduced. But he repeated what he has said before— that he sees no prospect for, a cut at this time because of the slim surplus the government anticipates in budgets for both this fiscal year, ending June 30, and next year Eisenhower called • again for some payment on the big national debt before ay tax reduction. FARM — Told there have been assertions that the administration's farm program has been a failure, Eisenhower replied that all farm programs since the end of World War n have not succeeded in bringing farmers a fair share of the national income. But he expressed confidence that his program, when it has had sufficient time to operate, will help assure family size farms of'an adequate income.

JACKSON (Continued from Page 1) end of a term over the amount ot founds on hand at the beginning of each term. This kind of a report naturally thrills and warms the heart of a man who tries to represent a vast number of people, in a business-like manner, as I was doing, as your mayor. "In closing this, I would like to say 'thank you' to each and even- one of my friends and loyal supporters, who have made my tenure in office as your mayor, a distinct pleasure. "In the future, as in the past, I shall expect to stand for those things which are good for our city and will never hesitate to speak out against those things which, in my humble opinion, will retard Its progress. "I wish the present incumbent every success possible, and hope that, by his efforts as mayor, that Blytheville will maintain her present high standing as a city, and will continuously progress; and if, at any time, I may be of any assistance in any capacity, in the betterment of the city, I will consider it an honor to be commanded." Program Change Was Necessary ST. LOUIS ffl—About 900 patrons awaited the performance of the suburban Webster Groves community concert series, but where was Mildred Miller, mezzo-soprana of the Metropolitan Opera? Why, she was at her home in Arlington, Va., and had a contract to prove she had signed for a later date. But what about violinist Michael Rabin, billed on the programs for the date claimed by the singer? A further check of the contracts showed he actually had and the programs revised. prospects for a common U. S.- British policy toward the Israeli- Arab dispute, Eisenhower replied that he always has taken the position—even before his nomination and election — that the United States must be a friend to both sides and cooperate in trying to ease the tension in that area. British Prime Minister Sir Anthony Eden is arriving here next Monday for conferences with Eisenhower and the expectation is that the Middle East situation will be discussed thoroughly.
