Woods Drug Store Phon« POplar 3-4507 (Continued from Page 1} which Saudi Arabia reportedly paic more than two million dollars. I said it had been decided their shipment, and that of some repair parts to Israel, would conform with U.S. policy for "the maintenance of peace and stability in the area. In New York, there were two incidents connected with the tank shipment. Area Picketed Pro-Israel groups picketed the area of Pier 29 in Brooklyn, urging longshoremen not to load the tanks aboard the SS James Monroe, due to sail for Saudi Arabia today. Thei joading continued,without interruption, however, and the Zionist youth groups called off their demonstration, hi which they sang Israeli songs and shouted, "Stop helping the Reds." Then after the ship was loaded, demand by crew members for hazard bonuses threatened for a time to delay sailing of the freighter. A petition reportedly signed by 30 of the 33 crew members was said to have demanded bonus pay'of 75 per cent similar to that paid in wartime. Port Capt. R. H. Bennett said the matter was resolved by giving each seaman an insurance policy of approximately $5,000 to cover him -in the event the vessel encounters trouble over the tanks. Sen. George told a reporter the tank shipment had to go through since, he said, the U.S. government "has to live up to its agreements.'' But he deplored the timing as "most unfortunate" and 1 ' said he wanted to hear a full explanation. "Fuel to Fire" ' Sen. Kefauver CD-Tenn), campaigning in Minnesota for his party's presidential nomination, :ermed the whole Incident un- 'ortunate and added: "The Communists have started an arms race :n the Middle East and this adds fuel to the fire. Adlai E. Stevenson, another candidate for the Democratic pres- dential nomination, said in a statement issued from his home at Libertyville, HI.: "While I do not enow what our government is dong, I assume that it is not unmind- T ul of Israel's peril and is actively seeking peaceful solutions of the mounting tension." The State Department statement on the embargo said 150 million dollars in requests for arms had come in from Middle East coun- ;ries during the past year. It said .6 million dollars worth, including Saudi Arabia's tanks, had been approved since August. In effect, it acknowledged that one. factor in the picture is the J.S.

President Eisenhower, in veto Ing the gas bill last Friday, denounced "highly questionable activities" In behalf of the measure by persons he described as apparently representing "only a very small segment of a great and vital industry." Laying: Ground Work While George said he hoped the this week, the Elections subcom- special committee could turn in a report on its investigation later this week, the Elections subcommittee was just laying the groundwork for a broad-scale inquiry. Gore said he would submit a proposed budget to this fellow subcommittee members, Senators Mansfield (D-Mont) and Curtis (R-Neb), and also hoped to be able to recommend a chief counsel. Sen. Knowland (R-Calif), minority leader, indicated in a weekend interview that the Elections subcommittee may run into difficulty in obtaining funds from the Senate for its inquiry. "Until the Senate itself determines what procedure shall be fol lowed," Knowland said, "I don't think any three-man subcommittee can take jurisdiction it the Senate has a different viewpoint." Knowland said the Senate may want to create a new and larger bipartisan committee—with equal numbers of Democrats and Republicans—to conduct the investigation. Driver Accused After Collision A driver was cited with drunk driving in one of five car accidents cited by police over the weekend. He was George Bodie, of Armorel, whose truck hit a car Sunday driven by W. J. Pruitt, of 107 BraWley St. Pruitt's car was damaged along the left side in the accident occurring at 706 E. Main.

SOYBEANS (Continued from Page 1) branch in Chicago, strongly hinted to the fact that increased protests from Japan—the number one bean export market—might bring action against the Ogden, "It is Important to all bean growers—and especially you growers in this area where you are near water transportation, so essential to export—that we keep the Japanese satisfied with our product. "Not only from the point of view of the 20 million bushels they are now importing, but also from the standpoint that Japan represents this much larger market in the future, potential of which will be realized when the Japanese have more dollars to spend for our beans," Strayer said. Competition Manchuria, he said, is particularly interested in getting a larger share of the Japanese soybean market- last year it sold Japan about three million bushels. But the Japanese have reserva- tions about purchasing anything from Red China and they will string along with us if we'll just give them the service, quality and price which will make us competitive." Strayer saM in order to service this market he is proposing that the government enter into an agreement with tile soybean producers and the Japanese to spend $100,000 on a survey of Japanese market needs. Japan, he said, will put up $10,000, the government will put up 585,000 and the soybean industry in this country is being asked for $5,000. Kurtz told the group that objections to color were heard on every hand in Japan. He was with Strayer in that nation in the fall. Concern Voiced He made no secret of the fact that the USDA is concerned about this situation. Their concern, he said, was not helped in any way when, during the past year, Japanese buyers thought they had made arrangements to guarantee getting a yellow bean, only to find out American shippers had been mixing green ThM Is Poet BOISE, Idaho fcfi — John Zeltne of Nampa Idaho, discovered the hubcaps were missing from his car and found this note, apparently left From Kurtz's remarks, most farmers gathered the USDA is ready to do something about the classification of the Ogden.
