MONDAY, DECEMBER 5, 1.955 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE SEVEN Malenkov Now Called 'First' Soviet Deputy LONDON (AP) — Deposed Soviet Premier Georgi Ma- lenkov was described in a Moscow radio broadcast today as "first deputy chairman of the U.S.S.R. Council of Ministers." That would make him a first deputy premier, the council being the Soviet equivalent of a government cabinet. It was not clear whether Malen- kov is again moving up the ladder of power in the Soviet Union. Since he was forced iut of the Soviet premiership last February, he had been described merely as a deputy chairman—without the "first." Announcements of the Soviet lineup after Malenkov's ouster listed five first deputy chairmen of the Council of Ministers. These were Foreign Minister V. M. Molotov, L. M. Kaganovich, A. I. Mikoyan, M. G. Pervi'.khin and M. 2. Saburov. Malenkov then was listed along with seven other deputy chairmen. He also was named minister of the electric power station industry. The broadcast describing him as a first deputy chairman said he had been attending a Communist party conference in the Ural Mountain area. FARM (Continued from Page 1) converted to its own purpose.

William F. Know-land of California, Senate Republican leader, that union leaders are trying to take over the Democratic party. Case said he doubts "there is any grand strategy under way to take control of the government and make us all pay dues and carry picket signs." Similarly, Sen. Estes Kefauver (D-Tenn), in another speech to the union newspaper editors, said "wild - swinging public demagoguery" critical of the AFL-CIO was "hogwash." "Even if labor so desired," he said, "it couldn't hold a stick to the lobbying power, the corruptive influence and the capacity for intrigue thai has been demonstrated by the giants of big business whose agents have been permitted to infiltrate the present administration from the White House on down." The APL, and CIO both formally endorsed Democratic nominee Ad- lal E. Stevenson in the 1952 campaign. Leaders of the new AFL- CIO have privately expressed some doubts over the wisdom of flatly choising a 1956 presidential campaign favorite. will attend the State Examination Committee's meeting, Hamlett is chairman of the 10- member committee.

But, your lawyer knows by reason of his legal education and experience how to find and use the laws applying in your case. This, ' he does when you employ him. Almost every question you present to your lawyer requires legal research before a proper answer can be given. Therefore, in your own interests, you should not expect, nor insist upon an immediate answer to your problem. Your lawyer spends most of his time in his office advising you and other clients, doing legal reading and research, drafting various legal instruments and opinions, and preparing in careful detail ttte cases which he will present before various courts, boards and bureaus. Your lawyer may also spend considerable time outside his office in checking court records, interviewing witnesses, and securing information which will be helpful to him in advising you and protecting your rights. Only a small part of your lawyer's time is spent in actual'trial. Blytheville Water Co.
