Moreover, Krim went on, the Istiqlal party is being used by of that now." The Emir—he is a prince of the Khettabi family—has a military plan for getting Uie French out of North Africa but he says he is not getting sufficient audience from the present Moroccan leaders. "If I had been in command of the war in Morocco, things would have been otherwise. If I had been banished long ago," he said. The Emir now admits he has had there, the French would have been a hand in planning attack on French forces in the Biff mountains, but he is annoyed with the present Moroccan leadership for what he feels is its failure to or- gantae lt« bid lor independence.

Bowles Sees Farm Surplus As New Cold War Weapon DENVEE Ml — 0 S. farm sur-. pluses could become a new weapon in the cold war, Chester Bowles, former ambassador to India said Thursday night. He proposed their use in a global system of agricultural' barter designed to aid the economies of all free countries. The wedding of foreign and farm policies Would require both imagination and funds, he told the National Farmers Union, but added: "Let it not be said by future historians that in the second decade after World War n freedom throughout the world died of a balanced budget." Bowles declared Russia is beating the United States "at our own game" in all-important Asian and African countries. "The miracle of Marshall Plan assistance in Europe and its counterpart in Greece and Turkey saved a desperate situation in the grim years of the Immediate postwar era; they literally stemmed the tide of Communism in western Europe," the former Roosevelt administration official declared. "Asia, Africa and South America now require our help to create competent, stable states with expanding economies and opportunities,'.' he said. 'Friend' John Got the Money CHATTANOOGA, Term.

As the robbery was in progress, another patron walked from the rear of the tavern, and the gunmen started to rob him. Dutchess charged the robbers. Four more shots were iired at the big dog. The robbers fled before robbing the second patron. Corrollo took Dutchess to a veterinarian. No horse ever has won the English Derby twice since it is a race for three-year-olds only. Sunday, Sept. 90. During World War I Daylight saving time got it* big push in World War I when it was used to save power. But lots of people got to like the extra hour of sunshine in the garden, at the beach, on the golf course or tennis court or in the front porch rocker. Some organized recreation interests apparently don't. A bill to approve "fast time" was introduced in Utah's 1955 Legislature. The House passed it but the Senate killed it. Outdoor movie, night baseball and labor interests op posed it. Farmers don't like it either. They can't get into the fields before the dew dries anyhow and it doesn't hurry up the livestock for feeding. Some Confusion Daylight time makes for some confusion. The cross-country railroads generally follow standard time. Commuter lines observe local time. The airlines generally just list arrivals and departure! by local time. It also gives radio and television networks a hard time in programming, but they solve the problem. Anyhow, this year "fast time" will be observed in whole or to part of California, Connecticut, II- linois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island .Vermont, Virginia and (be District of Columbia. In Missouri, only St. Louis will observe it. In New Mexico tt« atomic city of Los Alamos will be the sole observer. Shade Trees-Spring Sale! Mixed oTfleis ittfittd.
