Sen. Ellender (D-La), a bill supporter, said the veto was eviddiet Eisenhower will run again. Rep Foage (D-Tex) called it "an announcement for re-election." Rep. Albert (D-Okla), the House Democratic whip, labeled the action as "Chapter 1 in the President's announcement for r e-election." jta vetoing the bill, Eisenhower nevertheless said some such legislation "is needed because the type of regulation of producers of natural gas which Is required under present law will discourage individual initiative and incentive to explore for and develop new sources of supply.' ' Should Protect Customers He sad, however, that any new bill "should include specific lan- guaga protecting customers in their right to fair prices." This brought from Sen. Sparkman (D-Ala), who voted against the bill, the observation that "the President has tried to get on three sides of this question." "He has said there should not be regulation of 'producers," Spark man said. "He also wants the consumers protected. But he acted on the third side by vetoing a bill that he otherwise would have accepted because of 'arrogant' tactics used ta its behalf." Sen. Clements of Kentucky, the acting emocratic leader, was pleased by the veto but he called Eisenhower's message "an amazing political document."

Kefauver said the veto was "a wise act and in the public interest." Opponents have said the measure would have raised consumers' gas prices but proponents have denied this. "WiU Regret Veto" Sen. Aiken (R-Vt) said the people will be "genuinely grateful" for the veto. Sen. Thye (R-Mlnn) found in the action "a typical example of the President's complete honesty and integrity in acting in the interests of all citizens and not in behal? of any one group." But Senate Democratic Leader Lyndon B. Johnson of Texas said in a statement issued here that "the people will regret the veto when all the facts emerge." Sen. Knowland of California, the Senate minority leader, said he had urged the President to sign the bill "and I still think it should have been signed." He said he thought the measure was sound. Elsenhower said in his veto message that since the bill's passage "a body of evidence has accumulated indicating that private persons, apparently representing only a very small segment of a great and vital industry, have been seeking to further their own interest; by highly questionable activities. Paragould. TLA Official Dell Speaker Clyde Colter, superintendent of the Temperance League of Arkansas, will be the speaker at Dell Baptist Church tomorrow night, (Continued from Page 1) areas," Carlson added. The committee-approved bill includes a special two-year program lor 90 per cent parity supports on milling quality wheat in the commercial wheat area. Other wheat would get lower supports, mostly related to its value as a livestock feed. One-Year Program Carlson said he will suggest a one-year program of high supports for quality wheat and propose a special two-price wheat program thereafter. The Senate bill now includes a trial two-price system for rice. Under two price plans proposed in the past, wheat sold for domestic use would be supported at a high level, while wheai sold" for export or for animal feed would be priced lower. Carlson is among a number of farm belt senators up for re-election this year. In a speech last night at Des Moines, Iowa, Benson said the government has an obligation to help farmers out of the price-cost squeeze. But he said he "cannol and will not" suggest such mea sures as a return to 90 per cent supports that Benson said "can only get them in deeper." "These include -efforts that I deem to be so arrogant and so much in defiance of acceptable standards of propriety as to risk creating doubt among the American people concerning the integrity of governmental processes." With both the Senate and a federal grand jury looking into the situation, Eisenhower noted that he was up against a deadline, "These investigations," he said, "cannot be concluded before the expiration of the 10-day period 1 within which the President must I act upon the legislation under the! Constitution." If he had not acted by midnight tonight, the bill would have automatically become law. the pastor, the Rev. Jesse Holcomb, announced today. The public is inivted to attend the 7 p-in. service. MID-EAST (Continued from Page 1) dent Eisenhower the State Depart' ment is reviewing the whole sltua- :ion with respect to arms . deliveries to Egypt and the Arab States. Officials said they did not know how long this review would take. Some officials argued the delivery of 18 tanks to Saudi Arabia, which has no common border with Israel, would not materially affect the Israeli-Arab balance. If their view prevails it appeared likely that Saudi Arabia would eventually get its tanks. American authorities generally were inclined to blame the excitement over the affair on bad timing. The tank deal with Saudi Arabia was disclosed just when the United States is working hardest toward an Arab-Israeli settlement The Israeli Embassy spokesman who declined to be quoted by name said about $100,000 worth of replacement and repair parts foi automotive, signal and aircraf equipment and some safety equip ment such as parachutes were caught in the pipeline here by the embargo order. The Israeli government/ has a request pending for 50 million dol lars worth of weapons, including jet fighter planes and antiaircraf guns. The United Stated has been delaying final action on\it while seeking a basis for an Arab-Is raeli settlement. The Unite! States has said that it would not ngage in a Middle East arms •ace. In Public Position Communist Czechoslovakia is supplying arms to Egypt. Against this background, announcement of the shipment of tanks to Saudi Arabia put the United States in the public position of supplying Saudi Arabia with at least a small amount of heavy weapons while it was refusing to meet Israel's urgent demands for irms.
