The second half of the repor concerning traffic movement into the city and within its residentia and industrial areas is more long range. Without going into statistics and the examination of charts, Blythe villa's problems in traffic move nient are obvious. Simply, streets are not wide enough to handle the load. Of all of Blytheville's streets, but six per cent (or Main) are o minimum recommended width o 48 feet. The bulk is 22 feet and less. 75 Percent Comes to Town One outstanding finding tha of all traffic entering BlytfievTlle approximately three-fourths of 1' has destinations within the city Thus, Blythevllle must care for its "foreign" as well as its "domestic 1 traffic. . The report sees extension of some streets, widening of others, wider intersections, and an extensive review of traffic signals and stop signs. Recommendations include the synchronization of traffic lights in the business section as soon as angle parking is eliminated; Widening of Chickasawba between Fourth and Sixth streets; Widening of the intersection of North Sixth and Chickasawba, plus other widenings of dangerous and "narrow" intersections; Opening of North'Sixth street be- 'tween Chickasawba and Walnut and the elimination of the offset between Sixth Street and Elm Street lit Ash; . Extension of Moultrie westward from Division to cqnnect with State Highway 151 south of the air base; Paving of Division street north of Heam to Highland with Highland paved between Division and North Sixth and possible relocation . of Highway 61 along this route; "Channelization" of 21st Street and Rose to provide smoother flow and th* elimination of the signal there; : Elimination of the offset on Mc- Haney-Mathfs at Elm street. Copies of the report are available tor, study at Ctiy Hall. As the report concludes, "there are no easy solutions to the street traffic and parking problems in the city of Blythevtlle."

PARLEY (Continued from Paje 1) other round of Canadian-American-Mexican talks sometime bu that no plans had been made. The meeting here was relaxec and easy-going. The only table the Big: Three gathered round was the dinner table. When they talked business they sat on armchairs and sofas. The one real business session was devoted to a generalized survey of world affairs. Yesterday afternoon Eisenhower met separately with the Canadian and Mexican leaders for an hour each. He agreed with St. Laurent that Canada and the United States should work out mutually acceptable programs for the devfclop- nient of the Columbia ftiver basin. "He agreed with Ruiz Cortines ti problems of, migratory Mexican labor, working seasonally in the United States, should be solved amicably. . The most nearly tangible results of the conference came in the two- hour business session yesterday and covered these points: 1. Dulles made, a plea for greater participation -of small nations in giving "moral or economical aid" to such countries as India and Indonesia which have become independent in recent years. Canadian and Mexican leaders offered to do all they could to strengthen such .countries against "Cornmu nist totalitarianism." 2. Lester Pearson. Canada's minister of external affairs, suggested that the United States, and Allied countries offer to exchange blueprints of their foreign aid programs with the Russians as a means of "calling their bluff" on foreign . aid offers. Pearson said his proposal could be handled through the United Nations. Dulles was expected to study the proposition, 3. Canada and Mexico endorsed United States submission of the Israeli-Arab dispute to the U.N Security Council, an action taken last week. FARM Retired Pastor Dies in Puxico W. S.

PLASTERING Patching or Complete Jobe STUCCO WORK WATER PROOFING PH*M s-sni tot Herschell Besharse (Continued from Page 1) sent a telegram to President El' senhower saying the raids were a "lawless attempt to muzzle political opponents by police force." The action was ordered by Don- aid Moy Sey, New York District revenue director. "We're not picking on anybody, 1 ' he said. "They're (the Communists) Just the same as all taxpayers." The Worker said in an editorial today that Treasury agents knew six months ago that the paper had a $200,000 annual deficit but had threatened to force the paper to pay income taxes unless it disclosed names of contributors and lenders. The newspaper said it was p 1 a n n i ng to carry the issue to court when the raids came like "a bolt from the blue." Got Subscription List While Communist party »ssets were the main target of the raids, the government also got hold of Daily Worker subscription lists, and files and documents in" the party offices. The' Worker, which has never failed to publish in the 32 years since .its birth, made emergency arrangements to handle its editorial work in the offices of a Yiddish- language newspaper in the same building. . The government skipped the usual procedure of presenting a bill for back taxes and trying to collect: Instead, it slapped liens on Communist properties anc seized the party's assets. To carry out the swift maneuver the government invoked clause. This is used when there is thoiffht to be some chance of the debtor disposing of his assets be fore the government can seize them. There was no apparent evidence however, of any . communist plan to dump its assets. Political parties are required to file income tax returns but the Communist party allegedly never did. B47 Explodes, Crashes; Three Killed WICHITA, Kan. —A B47 Strat- ojet bomber from McConnell Air Force Base, Wichita, exploded high in the air and crashed in flames today northeast of Wichita, killing its crew of three.

They said the second plane was not involved in the accident. The B47 crashed on the farm of E. J. Diefenbach, 63, about three miles northeast of the Wichita city limits. Diefenbach said he heard three explosions—first a minor one in the air, a second and larger blast, still in the air, and the third when the stricken plane hit the ground. Bmmett L. Carter. 45. another eyewitness, said the two planes were flying north in a parallel course when he saw the B47 explode.

COUNCIL (Continued from Page 1) entire plan. WENDELL PHILLIPS—The time to nip traffic problems in the bud here is now. Other cities are faced with closing off streets in the downtown area and eliminating vehicle traffic in some areas entirely. This plan Is a good one and Blythevllle needs to act on it as soon as possible. RUSSELL HAYES — I think the plan is a good one. But why hasn't something been done about left turns off Main? It appears to me that this slows up traffic about as much as anything. To which Bruton answered, "The engineer said that with parallel parking, a left turn lane may be established at busy intersections." SWEDISH (Continued from Page 1) supported and encouraged them in every way. "As time went on, this cult ol the individual assumed even more monstrous forms and did serious harm to the cause." (The Pravda article appeared only the opening gun in a newspaper campaign against Stalin. II made no mention of the most sensational charges which reports reaching the West have said the new Soviet, high command has leveled against their former chief —that he maintained a continuous reign of terror, murdered thou sands of his party associates and the flower oi' the Bed army officer corps and placed the nation in danger of Hitler conquest.) On Right Track Pravda assured the Russian people that the Soviet Union now is on the right track. It said the Communist party Is the leader and organizer of the Soviet people "and the collective leader of the party, guarding and interpreting its principles, is the Central Committee." The—campaign to destroy the Stalin myth has touched off by Communist Party boss Nillita Khrushchev last month in a secret address to the party's 20th Congress. But Pravda's broadside was the first public expression at home of the campaign against Stalin personally. The newspaper had this to say of the Communist hierarchy's decision on the late die. tator: "Giving Stalin all the credit due him, soberly evaluating the big role he played in the revolution and the establishment of socialism the Communist party at the same time decided to liquidate the cul' of the individual so as to re-establish Lenin's principales and norms of life In government work and to establish. the best conditions for the" construction ot communism." And the party organ made it clear that the campaign to cut down Stalin had just begun. 'To eliminate the vestiges and survivals of the cult of the individual from our life," Pravda said, "it is necessary to develop a large - scale explanatory campaign." The newspaper said Marx and Lenin had "nipped in the bud attempts at their personal exaltation, .no matter who made those attempts." In contrast, Pravda Said of Stalin: Without modesty he not only did not cut short the words of praise ... but on all occasions supported and even encouraged ;hem.

"Under this cult there developed such ugly phenomena as the white - washing of shortcomings, the varnishing of reality and the pulling of wool over people's eyes . . . "The development of theory and tne expression of anything original or new could be made by only one man—Stalin. "All others were required to popularize the ideas he expressed and to formalize them. "All this retarded the development of Marxist-Leninist theory." Pravda said that worship of Stalin opened Uie way for "such inveterate agents of Imperialism as Beria and his accomplices to worm their way to leading positions oi' the party and government." L. P. Beria, head of Russia's secret police, was denounced as a traitor and executed after Stalin's death. Pravda said Beria's execution made it possible "to restore the standards and principles of Socialist law." The newspaper cautioned that the Soviet Union still needs leaders. It said the masses must have the right to elect and replace their leaders. Read Courier News Classified Ads.
