BLYTHEVILLE COURIER NEWS DOMINANT NXW8PAPER Of NORTHEAST ARKANSAS AND SOUTHEAST MISSOURI VOL. LI—NO. 208 Blythevllle Courier Blytheville Daily News Blythevllle Herald Mississippi Valley Lwder BLYTHEVILLE, ARKANSAS, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 26, 1955 EIGHT PAGES Except Sunday Published Daily SINGLE COPT FIVE CENTS Time Is Running Out As UN Is Deadlocked By TOM HOGE UNITED NATIONS, N, Y. (AP) — With 12 working days left before its scheduled ad journment, the U. N. Assembly pressed today to break stubborn deadlocks over a disputed Security Council seat and the membership bids of 18 nations. The assembly must also push through debate within the next two weeks on the tough disarmament question and the colonial issues involving Morocco and West New Guinea if it hopes to hit its Dee. 10 windup target. India and a number of other countries who did not take part in the debate before the 12-nation .U.N. disarmament commission have indicated they will have plenty to say on the arms question when it reaches the fiO-nation Political Committee. LitHe Friction Little friction is expected this year on either Morocco or West New Guinea, but the anticolonial powers undoubtedly will have arguments to present when those items come up. One major deadlock was broken yesterday when Prance was wooed back into the Assembly after that b< '.y voted to drop 'the stormy Algerian question. The French walked out two months ago when the Assembly put the Algerian question on its agenda. Delegates hoped Arab approval oi the maneuver which broke the French boycott would speed -solution of the complex membership question. Arab Spearhead The Arabs spearheaded the original move to debate the Algerian question and it had been feared that if Prance stayed out, she might use her veto power in the Security Council, on which she retailed her seat, to bar Jordan and the Asian applicants. U.N. circles were also heartened by reports that the United States had relaxed its opposition to Communist outer Mongolia's bid for membership. The Soviet Union has warned that it would veto all non-communist applicants if outer Mongolia or any of She other fur Russian- backed candidates failed to make the jrade. To Abstain ; United States has said would abstain on all five Communist applicants, but it had previously insisted that outer Mongolia would not get the seven af- ._ . firmative votes needed for council) target date. approval. Perhaps the toughest problem facing the current Assembly is the log jam between the U.S.-backed Philippines and Communist Yugoslavia in the contest for the Security Council seat now held by TUP key. After a record 21 ballots in the Assembly, the two cntestants are still far from the necessary two- thirds majority and neither has shown any sign of yielding. Out of Business Diplomats pointed out that if the question is not resolved by adjournment time, the council will be virtually out 01" business. The 11-nation body cannot operate without full membership and there is no provision in the U.N. charter on what steps to take if a seat is not filled. If the deadlock holds, the Assembly may have to extend its session, or reconvene atfer the firs tof the yar. But, wih many delegates scheduled to report home before mid-December, urgent behind-scenes efforts are being made to resolve the issue before the Ship's Crew Saved New USD A Plan To Curb Surpluses Is Topic of Rumor MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minneapolis Tribune says that the Agriculture Department plans a "conservation acreage reserve" program which will provide for paying farmers up to $5,000 a year for taking land out of production. take part in the program and still Details of the proposals were told by the Tribune in a copyrighted story from its Washington bureau. The plan envisions government expenditure of almost »1,400.MO.- 000 the next 15 years in a move to reduce farm production and promote soil conservation. Under the plan, the government would pay the cost of installing soil-conversation cover on land taken out of, production. In addition, there would be payments up to J5.000 annually to compensate for the value of crops not produced on the reserve land. Farmers would be permitted to use this reserved land for pastur* ing livestock. But acreage put under this program would be in addition to acreage already put in cover crops or left fallow as a a routine conservation measure. The plan is identical to the one submitted for approval last week tc a top-level agricultural commission which advises Secretary Benson. By 1969, the year when the plan would end if it is approved by Congress at the next session, more than a million farmers would have taken 23 million acres from production o£ commercial crops for periods of from five to 10 years. 6,811 -Acre Cut On ' 56 Cotton Crop in County Mississippi County will take a cut of 6,811 acres in the 1956 cotton acreage allotment if cotton growers approve restricted planting as they have in the past. But the county still will have state's largest allotment at 183,322 acres.

Douglas (D-I11) said today that support from a group of gas utilities gives opponents "a very good chance" to defeat in the Senate a bill to exempt natural gas producers from federal regulation. Announcement of county breakdown of Arkansas' allotted 1,424,511 acres for cotton next year was made today by the state Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation Committee. 3,6 Percent The acreage cut in the county for next year will be 3.6 per cent below the allotted 190,133 acres for 1955. National average reduction is expected to be about four per cent. This year's planting of 186,133 acres was 4,000 acres below the allotment. In comparison, the county's allotment in 1954 was 227,141 acres. Growers will vote next month on whether they want planting quotas. The allotments will go into effect only if the cotton farmers approve —as they always have—restricted Douglas, who heads the Senate-*— House Economic Committee, an-| nounced he intends to fight against approval of such a bill despite its inclusion in the I3-point legislative program outlined by Sen. Lyndon B. Johnson of Texas, the Senate majority leader. "In my judgment," he said in an interview, "the reenforcements we are getting: from the gas utilities companies give us a very good chance of defeating this measure." Form Council A group of utilities announced in of a council of local gtfs'companies aimed at defeating: the House-passed Harrts-Fulbright bill. They said the measure would increase gas prices to consumers by 800 million dollars annually. The bill is authored by Sen. J. W. Fulbright (D-Ark) and Rep. Harris (D-Ark). John Heyke, president of Brooklyn Union Gas Co. and chairman of the new council, said local gas companies will campaign against the bill in their individaul areas. Douglas said that while Johnson called for action on a bill "which will preserve free enterprise and of course provide legitimate protection to consumers." he doubts the House measure can be amended to forestall increased costs to the ultimate consumers. May Seek Vote Johnson has indicated he may bring the bill before the Sena te early in next year's session. Douglas said if that happens there is liekly to be extensive debate, delaying- action on other portions of the Democratic program. Douglas said that in general he thinks Johnson's proposed legislative program one to which I 1,200 Baptists To Meet Here Night Session At First Church On Monday Soiire 1.200 Baptiststfronvover'Mis- sissippi County are expected to gather at First Baptist Church here Monday night for the annual M Night program.

By JACK ADAMS WASHINGTON (AP) — Railroad men here said today the task of achieving racial desegregation in the South's interstate train service will present almost as many problems as the first rail crossing of the Continental Divide in 1869. But as one executive put it: "The-r ' railroads always obey an ICC or- f Man Given Fine After 'Phone' Charge Harris Lewis, a 60-year-old married man, was fined $75, costs and given a suspended 60-day jail sentence today as an outgrowth of accusations from a young nurse that he had reepatedly telephoned her for "dates". The technical charge was disturbing the peace. Municipal Court Judge J. G. Sudbury warned Lewis that the jail sentence would be invoked "if we have any further difficulty with you. Then, he added, "it won't be necessary to hold another trial." Leu-is was arrested a week ago when police advised the nurse to accept one of the "dates" which. Lewis proposed. When he did, police arrested him. The nurse and her roommate said in court that Lewis beseiged them with telephone calls. Police described similar calls made to other Blyiheville women and said der." He referred to yesterday's order from the Interstate Commerce Commission (ICC) directing an end effective Jan. 10 to racial segregag- tion of interstate passengers on trains and buses, and in public waiting rooms and rest rooms, No Plan A check with a half-dozen rail executives disclosed no firm plan of action yet to carry the order into effect. They agreed many problems were involved. They asked not to be quoted by name. None of the railroad representatives here suggested taking an appeal from the ICC order to the Supreme Court, whose 1954 ruling on school segregation was cited by the ICC in support of its order. One official commented: "It may be that the -long-established practice of southern carriers in separating white and negro passengers may just go by the boards under the weight of operating difficulties." To Retain Laws He discussed the situation against a backdrop of statements from southern state officials, asserting their intention to retain local statutes requiring railroad companies to maintain separate or divided coaches, waiting rooms and rest rooms for whites and negroes. Thirteen states, Alabama, Arkansas. Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, South Carolina and Virginia, have such laws. And this, one railroad man said, is the heart of the difficulty. After Jan. 10. the railroads are confronted with the prospect of maintaining one set of "mixed" accommodations for interstate travelers to satisfy the ICC, and another set of separate facilities for intrastate patrons, to satisfy local authorities.
