No Answer Obviously no other lawyer was present for that purpose, but Gentry didn't get an answer from Cheney. Rorex interrupted, "That has nothing to do with this case." he added, "I'm not going to get involved in a controversy between you and the Racing Commission.'! "Since you are here you may proceed," he told Gentry. Gentry, who had served notice in advance that he would be at the hearing, then argued in sup- pnrt of his motion JQJL dismissal of the suit. He pointed out that Crittenden Chancellor W. Leon Smith had rejected .an intervention by a group ol West Memphis 'residents on grounds similar to those raised in the present comulaint. This was in an appeal by Southland which resulted in the commission, Smith's direction, granting Southland a racing permit. The commission previously had refused the permit. The attorney general argued tha a contention by the .plaintiffs that dog racing was a lottery and therefore forbidden by the Arkansas constitution had been settled ,by a Supreme Court decision holding that horse racing' was not a lottery Claims No Jurisdiction And he declared that Rorex was without jurisdiction in the case and that the plaintiffs had no right to bring the suit. After Gentry concluded, Rorex immediately overruled him on al points without waiting for argu ments from the other side. He said he thought Smith was right in rejecting the interventioi in the Crittenden case but tha this did not prevent the plaintiffs from bringing a new suit here And he said he didn't considei that the Supreme Court ruling 01 horse racing settled the question of whether dog racing is a lottery Gentry was accompanied b; James L. Sloan, his chief assistant C?ecil Bay Edmonds, of Wes Memphis, president of Southland, was a spectator. He was accompanied by attorneys Archer Wheatley of Jonesboro and Charles P. Smith of West Memphis. Smith confirmed to Rorex that Southland had abandoned its plan to start dog racing April 16, but the Southland representatives took no other.part in the hearing.

Dus,t Damage Told by USDA WASHINGTON US — The agriculture Department said today 3,335,000 acres of land in the Great Plains have been damaged this season by dust storms. A survey showed further, it said, that 19,400,000 acres were in a condition to be damaged by wind erosion, due to lack of moisture and soil cover. The department said about 94 percent of the land already damaged this season is located in Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma, New Mexico and Texas: About 85 per cent of that in a condition to blow was said to be located in the same states. Damage to growing wheat this season was put at 511,000 acres, most of it in Colorado and Texas. most canners and cutters 9.0011.60; utility and commercial bulls 12.60-14.50; good to prime vealers .20.00-28.00; utility and commercial 14.00-18.00; culls 10.00-12.00.

The commission was firing Gentry (Continued from Page M out a compromise. Last May i the House, over administration objections, voted to support prices of basic crops at 90 per cent of parity and those of dairy products at 80 per cent of parity. Parity is a standard set up in farm law and declared to be :air to producers in relation to :heir costs. The Senate rejected rigid 90 per cent price props for basic crops. On dairy products, its bill is similar to the House's. The House did not consider the soil bank nor many of the other provisions in the Senate bill. Since the planting season has already begun in some areas, the administration has been urging speedy action. Sen. Ellender (D-La) who as chairman of the Agriculture Committee acted as floor manager for the bill in the Senate, said he still hopes that a compromise .can be worked out and sent to President Eisenhower by March 29—10 days hence. Like many of his previous estimates, that seemed highly optimistic. Equally unpredictable were the form a Senate-House compromise might take and Eisenhower's action to, such a compromise. There have been predictions £!• senhower would veto any bill— like that passed by the house lasl year—which provided a return to rigid price supports. Predicts Veto Aiken, chief spokesman for the administration in the Senate debate, said last night there was "enough in the bill to warranl veto—perhaps three or four vetoes." He said it would be better to keep the present law. Aiken termed the bill "tortured Hoyti Ready For SeMo Band Meet HAVTI—Professor Emmctt Sarig of the University of Wisconsin will be guest conductor here March 22 when the southern division of the Southeast Missouri High School Band dissociation holds its annual spring festival, it was announced today by Donald G.

Hickenlooper (R-Iowa), "the worsl agricultural bill ever passed by this body ... We have prostituted the general welfare of agriculture." Senate GOP Leader Knowland of California voiced hope a satiF- factory bill will emerge from conference and that Eisenhower "In good conscience will feel justified in approving" It.
