Plans All Ready . Ellender disputed this. He said Agriculture Department officials already have preliminary i plans and instructions ready for state and county farmer committees who would administer the soil bank. Ellender noted that the bill authorized 750 million dollars each for this and the next three years under the acreage reserve and another 450 million for 10 to 15 years under the . conservation reserve phase of the soil bank. The acreage reserve plan would apply to land actually used for production of surplus crops. The conservation reserve is a longer- range program for planting trees and grass. Only minor additional revisions were made in the bulky compromise before the five House conferees and three senators signed it. Signing the compromise, with Ellender and Cooley were Reps. Poage (D-Tex), Gathings (D-Ark), Hope ((R-Kan)' and Andresen (R- Minnrand Sens. Johnston (D-bC) and Young (R-ND). . v w i- ....

Dowd a sympathetic listener when he told of driving more than 25 years without a traffic conviction. Dowd agreed it would be a shame to spoil that record by con victing Stewart of driving 40 miles an hour in a 30-mile zone, as charged. The judge ruled Stewart inno cent. In gratitude Stewart bought $13 worth of tickets to the police circus. That's what he would have had to shell out for a fine. Cancer Society is in business for just one purpose, actually, and that is to help people," Mrs. Cyril Nelson, executive director of the Mid dlesex County Chapter, said yesterday. Mrs. Nelson, speaking before the captains dnd workers of the Mill- town Cancer Crusade in the Cottage Avenue firehouse, said that this help is designed "to educate and protect the well against the disease, to help cure those whose cancers are detected in time, to ease the ways of cancer's victims and relentlessly to sustain the day- in-day-out search into the cause of this evil disease and to find its possible cure." The occasion was a training meeting called by 'Mrs. James V. Selover, Milltown Cancer Crusade chairman, for the benefit of her campaign organization. . Said Mrs. Selover, "The residents of Milltown went all-out to help us record for our town one of the best results in the Vhole county last year. And our community gives every indication of supporting our efforts just as whole heatedly this year. So we have every encouragement we need to go out and do a fine job. Knowing your excellent accomplishment last year I feel confident that you'll do all you can for this urgent cause.

In a table compiling his activi ties since he assumed office, Wi- lentz notes that there have been 154 murders in Middlesex County since 1933 and 360 suicides. In the same period, his findings indicated that 550 persons who met more or less violent death had been drinking and 392 others were considered intoxicated. The first group consists of per sons with an alcoholic content of up to .15 per cent, while the latter group are those whose brains" or blood show more than .15 per cent. Agreement has been entered into for the purchase of property at 102 Bayard St. to be used as headquar-' ters for the New Brunswick Chap-' ter, American Red Cross, according to an announcement made today by Maurice Chaffee, chairman of the board of directors. The purchase will be made with special funds set aside over a long period of years for this purpose. The chapter now rents office space at 105 Carroll PL, and garage space at 5 Schuyler St. " The property to be purchased includes a frame brick-filled two and one-half story house, consisting of nine rooms and attic, and a two-car garage. The house and garage are located on an L-shaped lot with, a 36-foot frontage on Bayard Street extending for a depth of 175 feet. The house fronts on Bayard Street and the garage on Schuyler Street. "We believe the acquisition of this property will result in a more economical and efficient opera tion," Chaffee pointed out. "Motor corps service will be facilitated, with the chapter's cars housed on the premises instead of nearly three blocks distant, and our entire program can be expanded because of the much needed extra space." He noted that home nursing and first aid classes have previously been conducted in quarters loaned by the YWCA, the Neighborhood House and the New Brunswick Rec reation Center. . Our Junior Reef Cross program will also be strengthened," he said. "This very active group now meets regularly in a room in the Recrea tion Center building, but we feel they need and serve a permanent meeting place of their own at chapter headquarters." ; ., Chaffee went on to say that the added space will also make possible a work room for the preparation of supplies for hospitals and military installations; a committee meeting room, and facilities for the training of canteen workers in mass feeding techniques. He also noted that the large yard would provide parking space for volunteers. The property is now owned and occupied by Miss Christine Schus-sler, whose attorney is Douglas M. Hicks. The Red Cross is represented by Joseph H. Edgar. Closing of title is expected within the next few weeks, with the move to the new headquarters taking place .soon thereafter.

' , Pastor's Oversize Shoes Prove Costly CYNTHIANA, Ky. Of) All the Rev. Wayne B. Smith wanted to do was wave to his wife but it's going to cost him $400. He may even throw away a pair of oversized shoes. Mr. Smith sounded his horn when he saw his wife with another wo man in the car ahead of his The driver, Mrs. William Lyons, misunderstood the toot and slammed on her brakes. Mr. Smith tried to, also. But. he told police, he was wear ing larger sized shoes than usual order and to promote the 'public health by repose and quiet on the day assigned for rest. He read the phrase, calling it "a joke." Romond argued that the ordin ance is "vague, constitutes . a subversion of competition" and constitutes a limitation , on the right to work." He said the measure is confus ing since it permits a clothing store to sell jewelry, yet prohibits sale of a shirt or a suit. Next door to this establishment. Romond said, a lumber yard could operate "wide open. Romond also argued that the township had presented no affidavits to support the need for the ordinance. He said he would seri ously object if any wore submitted at a later date. No Restrictions Wilentz denied there is any intent to restrict competition under the terms of the ordinance. He said the Township Committee decided to ban sales at establish ments that would normally trans act their greatest volume of business on Sundays. He said the only possible "sub version of competition would be as it applied to "gasoline service stations." Wilentz denied that Perth Am boy merchants had any undue part in passage of the ordinance and pointed out that "50 per cent of the legislation passed by any body is wanted by someone. He said that business establishments that are not affected by the ordinance are those which have historically been open on Sundays and do not do their largest share of business on that day. Roland Winter, of the firm of Jacobson and Winter, made the point that the establishments that are permitted to operate on Sundays are in the center of the municipality and some are near churches. He said the businesses prohibited from selling on Sundays are located on the outskirts of the township and that "their evil is the least felt." B.
