Some farmers said they saw little chance of better times for agriculture as long as the surpluses exist. Proposals that the surplus be de-| stroyed were made by two farm-' ers at the hearings here yesterday. Interference Blamed Many farmers told the committee they could not understand why, with so much hunger in the world, the surpluses cannot be put. to use abroad. Some blamed State Department "interference" for what ( they considered inadequate efforts 1 to sell the surpluses abroad. The committee found support j here for Midwestern suggestions that the government undertake it broad program of curtailing production until the surpluses can be disposed of and until farm production is adjusted to needs. 178 7-8i 76 1-41 H4 3-8j 149 93 7-8 124 1-4 46 7-8 133 1-2 89 3-8 43 3-4 35-1-8 47,3-4 42 1-2 58 10 7-8 . 133 1-2 . 107 1-4 . 104 1-4 . 54 7-8 Livestock NATIONAL STOCKYARDS.

Injunction Ordered In Hoxie Case LITTLE ROCK (£) — Three pro- rii'KreKation o r ga n iaz lions and Uieir leaders today were enjoined by Federal Court from interfering with the racially integrated public .-xrhools at Hoxie, '•The testimony in Mils case has shown that the situation in Hoxie could develop inio a riot unlesst his court does .something to stop it." said U. S. District Judge Thomas C. Trimble. ''An injunction is necessary to protect the community and keep it from developing into another Little RocK." The juci^e apparently was refer- nnj! to an outbreak of labor violence in Liitle Bock last summer. The injunction issued by Judge Trimble is a preliminary one which will ?iand until a final hearing in a. S. District Court ai Jonesboro on Dec. 8. Judge Albert C. Reeves, of Kansas City who recently came out of retirement to assume the duties of the Eastern Arkansas District, will conduct the final hearing. The preliminary injunction is virtually identical with a temporary restraining order which Judsre Trimble issued Oct. 13 barring the three organize tions from interfering with the .integrated schools of j the east Arkansas to\vn. The tern-' porary order was granted without testimony. AIDE (.Cununiicd from Page 1) in'i-re^t rate on 91-day Treasury bills dropped yesterday for the spi'iind successive week. The rate on these bills sets the pattern for all interest rates. It had hit a 28- month high Oct. 18.

Economies and changes in postal procedures under Summenield's direction were successful in cutting the deficit to around 350 million dollars last year, from an annual average of about 500 millions. Hut (he savings have been more than offset by a 160 million dollar ft year pay raise which Congress voted postal workers this year. The big increase in the Post Office payroll, some believe, may induce Congress to vote somewhat higher rates to help Summerfield cut down his operating; losses — but not anything like th increases Summerfield is expected to ask. May Change Mind Some Capitol Hill sources thought the pay raise might cause Rayburn to change his mind on proposals he has turned down in the past. If past reaction by Congress can be regarded as a guide, resistance prob 'jh will come chiefly, to porposals to raise postage rages on regular and airmail letters. Less congressional resistance is expected to possible proposals involving second and third class mail—newspapers, magazines and advertising circulars — although rates on these were boosted substantially in 196 Some indication of the administration's upcoming proposals may be gleaned from recommendations made by Summerfield last Janu- £.iV at the start of the present Congress. At that time he requested increases in first class mail totaling; an estimated 237 million dollars, or a 29 per cent increase; a second class increase totaling 18 million dollars or 30 per cent; an airmail increase of 14 million dollars or 11 per cent; and a third class increase of $72,900,000 a 39 per cent increase.
