FKIEND HOT SPRINGS — Blytheville's improving Chickasaws continued their gridiron mastery over Hot Springs by burying the Trojans, 32-0 here Friday night before 800 shivering fans. * Led by their AA stars, Freddie Akers and Charles (Bug) Abbott, the Chicks scored in every quarter with a relentless ground attack Ike, Benson Air Farm Problems By MARVIN L.

As the President's mixed effectively with passes. They racked up single touchdowns in each of the first three periods then nailed down their fifth triumph of the season with two more six- pointers in the final round. Akers and Abbott, consistent all year, again stood out in the convincing win. Abbott ripped off 1G4 yards, 84 coming on, a brilliant jaunt from his own six on a fake kick, to set the pace. He scored once. Akers put on quite a display for the homelings and a few Blytheville faithfuls who braved the weather to make the trip. He counted twice, threw for another touchdown, intercepted three passes, and ate up 117 yards. 382 Yards Rushlnj? doctors re- in all. the Tribe rolled up a ported that new X-ray pictures: grand total of 382 yards by rush- disclosed no enlargement of his! ing, in addition to 88 via the aerial heart, and termed that the most 1 game.

H1GHTOWEE GENEVA, Oct. 29 (AP) — The Big Four foreign ministers met today for the third time to try to bring nearer together their apparently irreconcilable views on how to reunite Germany and achieve European peace. Soviet Foreign Minister R. M. Mololov, U. S. Secretary of State John Foster Dulles, Brit- ain't Harold Macmillan and France's Antoine Pinay assembled in the Palace of Nations.

As of now , Superintendent of; Schools W. B. Nicholson stated, there are about 300 students in the Robinson school. An announcement by School Board President B. R. Hays today pointed out that bids will be opened in the superintendent's office at 2 p.m. on Nov. 22. t Other Plans Hays also stated that the board hoped to complete arrangements soon for purchase of land for a new elementary school in northeast Blytheville. Negotiations, he asserted, should be climaxed in a matter of days. Work on it. he said, will begin as soon as possible after architects submit approved plans and specifica- j especially lions. i once of day rival programs for solution of Europe's problems. Diplomatic quarters said the two plans were almost as far apart as they ever have been. Today, the foreign ministers will see what they can do to find at least some common ground between the two plans. There were many fears, however, that they faced a stalemate. Best opinion v:as that their arguments now would be directed not so much at changing each other's minds, but toward rallying public support, particularly in Germany. Map Strategy The three Western ministers conferred at MacrniUan's villa this morning to mar strategy, but diplomats here believe the differences are so great they doubt practical! negotiations can be undertaken in j the near future. Each side now is prepared to argue that its own plan for Europe j and Germany affords the best hope for assuring peane. Behind the propaganda fight— i the existence of which neither side officially admits—appear to be contradictory diplomatic strategies which shape up this way: 1. The Western Powers believe they may eventually persuade Russia to accept German reunification on Western terms if they apply firm and patient pressure over several years. They reason that Russia needs a period of peace and International goodwill and the Soviets will, if necessary, p."y s considerable price for it, 2.

N. truceo fficials strove to neutralize a month ago. —- —* Israeli officials here said two companies of Egyptian troops, totaling about 3QQ men, penetrated Israeli territory along the El Auja- Nizana border, about 45 miles south of Gaza, yesterday. The Israelis said they set up an outpost in the zone in retaliation lor the alleged Egyptian incursion. The Israeli Foreign Ministry Issued a statement saying the two Egyptian companies reinforced two other Egyptian units that already had set up strongpoints in the zone. They said the moves were m,»de "in disregard of the armistice agreement and or promises made by Egypt'' to Canadian Maj. Gen.. E. L. M. Burns, chief of the U. N. truce observers, Sept. 27. Since then Burns has been pleading with both sides to observe the zone's neutrality. Promised Withdrawal Israel sent Burns a note asking him to call on Egypt to withdraw rom the position it allegedly had agreements by permiting West Germany to join the Atlantic pact and other Western Defense alliances. in a formal note, the State Department also restated yesterday its view that these same opstwar agreements make Russia, not East Germany, responsible for "normal functioning of communications" between West, Germany and Berlin.

Iff) — Senate Agriculture Committee members today were touring nearby Garrison Dam installations in the Missouri River at. the close of the first weeX ot hearings on the farm income problem. In their fiftn session since starting the national study, at Minot. N. D. yesterday, senators were told that a combination of lower farm prices and crop controls is forcing migration of smaller farmers into urban centers in search of jobs. Need More fctnd Witnesses also testified the family-size type farm was threatened unless owners of such tracts somehow could acquire more land. But there was no suggestion on how this could be accomplished. North Dakota farm skokesmen were critical of present government wheat controls. They argued the regulations cut too deep into production of the bread-making wheat grown in Minnesota and the Dako- tw. WItnes«e« Mid higher support price* should b« worked out In the federal program for premium, or quality whent with the lower grades, nwofc tf wt** NMV MM wu unlit for human consumption, subject to lesser payments. Growers suggested also that controls be put on a bushel rather than acreage allotment basis. They testified the acreage plan encouraged farmers to over-produce by applying fertilizer heavily. Raymond Wensel, Carpio, N. D. farmer with 3.000 acres, told the group that present farm programs, especially lower price supports, are temiinB to build up what be termed a "landed artistoeracy." He said larger operators are buying up the the land held by smaller producers. The committee heard a different viewpoint from a Montana cattle rancher, who spoke for less rather than more government aid to agriculture. "We don't want govenment price supports or subsidies," salt) Edwin N. Hardy Jr. of Wolf Point. "We are on the road back to a healthy economy and we oppose this aid because we want to maintain our Independence." Observers agreed that applause from the estimated 400 at the Minot honrlnr was about equally divided between the pro and con ! private meetings the five-nation disarmament subcommittee held Ihis year. The United States has agreed nil along: that it wants full debate on disarmament both in the Disarmament Commission and the General Assembly, but it fee!. 1 : that simultaneous discussion here and .in Quail Aplenty, But None to Eat Mrs. Otis Jarrett. the Promised Land quail raiser, asked today that potential customers Quit trying to} Geneva, would only lead to con- buy her quail. Mrs. Jarrett explained that last July, when special licenses for sale of dressed qi'ail were offered, she was busy caring for her mother who was ill at that time. Thus, she will have to wait until next July, the only month such licenses go on sale. Mrs. Jarrett said she does hold licenses which enable her to sell the birds on foot for breeding purposes however, and that come next July, she'll be able to sell dressed birds. fusion.
