The child died some two hours later last Friday in a hospital here of a fractured skull, said Downie. He said the woman.

Thompson of the Pulaski County Homicide squad and the officer arrested the couple at their garage apartment here yesterday afternoon. Both denied they had caused the baby's death said Downie. Downie said Mrs. Wells told this story of the Incident: She was preparing to give the baby its bottle early Friday even- Ing when the infant began crying end refused to eat. Mrs. Wells said she lost her temper, picked up the child and slammed it against the floor. Then she soaked a towel in cold water and attempted to revive it. .Unable to do so, she wrapped it In a blanket and took It to neighbor.

(Continued from Page I) Tuesday. The Western plan, which lays down a suggested disarmament program for the u. N. Disarmament .. Commission to consider in its year-round negotiations, was approved last month by the Assembly's Political Committee. The same program was approv«d in 1952 by the Assembly but was stymied in the commission by Russian opposition. The Political Committee last month rejected, as it has before, . an alternate Soviet program. I The usual Soviet tactic, after defeat in the committee, is to roll out its defeated resolution and demand that the full Assembly reverse the committee decision against it. This time, however, the Russians asked the Assembly.only to .delete from the Western resolution the parts the Soviets had voted against in a paragraph-by-paragraph ballot in the committee, but to leave in the working part ordering the Disarmament Commission to continue its work" toward finding a solution. Nor did Vishinsky's amendment make any mention of a rejected Soviet resolution charging the TJ. S., Britain ana France with tvy- Ing to turn the Disarmament Commission into a Western espionage agency. Kiwanis Club Hears Pastor The Rev. 0.

The President noted that the National Security Resources Board was established by the National Security Act of 1947 to advise the President regarding various aspects of future military, industrial and civilian mobilization. The NSBB, he said, Is charged with planning for the future while ODM deals with mobilization plans of the present. "The progress of the current mobilization effort has made plain how artificial is the present separation of these functions," the President said in outlining his plan to .combine the two agencies. Actually, the reorganization plan would create a new Office of Defense Mobilization, replacing the one established by executive order under the Defense Production Act of 1950.

Some analysts feel the importance of defense spending as a support to the nation's economy has been over-emphasized. General Motors delivered defense items totaling about 20 per cent of its sales last year. But in its annual report it describes such work as "considerably less attractive" than commercial business, from the standpoint of shareholder's return. It adds thai when "defense needs become less acute, it is our belief that industry's wheels will continue to turn at a satisfactory rate. There are all kinds of customerneeds to satisfy."
