PHONE 6096 FHA Cutback To Affect State LITTLE ROCK (IP) — An administrative cutback in the Farmers' Home Administration in Arkansas will result in dismissal of one state and eight county home management supervisors, effective June 30. The government will effect a saving of $36,930 in elimination of the jobs, State Director J. V. Highfill said yesterday. The Production and Marketing Administration also plans to eliminate one program specialist one county auditor and one clerk from its Little Rock offices. SMATHERS (Continued from Page 1) could serve a maximum of two years and 90 days. A new president under this proposal would be chosen at the next congressional election, if a president died in the first two years of his term. Under the first provision, a nominee for president would get the same proportion of electoral votes in each state as he received in the popular vote. Now a nominee gets all of the electoral votes from a state if he wins a plurality of the popular votes.

Ptgt U own intentions by rejecting Switzerland as the neutral," he told Nam. Harrison said: "Your side requested the resumption of negotiations of the full delegations. As we have stated clearly we do not intend to become involved in protracted and useless arguments. From your experience In previous negotiations with us you should be well aware that we mean what we say. If you have anything constructive to say we will be ready to hear it." Contention Repeated Nam repeated the Communist contention that It was a universal principle that all prisoners be sent home. And he insisted that there were no prisoners who would not go home once explanations were given them. Several times in his lengthy statement, Nam said balky prisoners must be shipped to a neutral state so their "apprehensions could be eliminated." "We do not believe that in the environment of a neutral state and after the side to which they belong has made explanations to them there will still be among these prisoners of war not directly repatriated, some individuals whose apprehensions are not eliminated and who are afraid to return home." Nam insisted as he had on the previous two days, that the Communist proposal represented an obvious concession. Nam concluded with the declaration that hope for an armistice in Korea could be reached only in the "spirit of consultation." To this Harrison replied: "I have already stated that your proposals in their present form are unacceptable. Are you prepared to suggest the name of a neutral state to take custody of the prisoners of wftr?" Nam said only, "I have noted your question." Then he proposed an overnight recess, to which Harrison agreed.
