Long Range Aid In his speech, Smith called for bipartisan backing of the Presi dent's "new and more' flexibje policy of economic aid" to countries being wooed by Russia in its current diplomatic, social and eco- noinc offensive. The administration seeks long- range economic aid authority,. bu congressional leaders have indi cated a reluctance to grant such powers except possibly on specific development projects. las Undercut Bid Some Democrats have argued that Dulles' optimistic sizeup ol conditions last Friday has under cut the administration's bid *— such blanket aid authority. Smith said, "I would not have been shocked if the senator from Arkansas differed in the appraisa of world facts from the .position of the secretary." But, he continued, to charge that Dulles "had actually misrepresented the facts to the American people, and to • charge he woulc say one thing publicly, and an opposite thing- privately, is to me completely indefensible." Smith called Dulles a "gre; American statesman," and saic all can agree "there never has been a secretary:of state of highef integrity." , .' • . * SCHOOL ELECTION Notice Is hereby given that the Annual School Election for the year 1966 will be held in Luxora District No. 2 of Mississippi County, Arkansas, on Saturday, March nth, for the purpose of electing' school di- tectors, voting on school taxes and on such other measures as may properly be submitted at said election.
