Hubby's Consent Needed, Austria Court Rules VIENNA, Austria (fl— A Court of Appeals ruled yesterday that it is Illegal to take a married woman to U» theater In Austria if her husband objects. Such action, the court said, constitutes a "disturbance of matrimony." The ruling came in a case in which a lower court had given a man a four-month suspended sentence for taking his married woman friend to the theater, despite protests from her husband. Although the higher court upheld the verdict, it cut the sentence to 14 days — suspended. (Continued from Page ! plan into operation at Blytheville's new city dump cosU $13,000. Again, the city will have to forego something desirable and needed for something it can afford. Street Work 3. Street widening is needed badly. Certain intersections need widening immediately. Other streets, several blocks on Chickasawba, for instance, must be widened. In the past, the city has had to dip into its parkins meter fund to meet current expenditures. Last year, City Council touched the meter fund for a $17,000 loan to the general 'und. Parking meter receipts are specifically earmarked for street widening. But now,- instead of having $26,800 ready to spend to widen streets, the city, as of March 1, only had $9,874, and, in view of the fact that this fund has provided a cushion to general operating expenses in the past, City Council well may go slow in using this money for it* intended purposes. Even a city has to pay its bills. 3. In addition, there are some more, or less current obligations which must be met. City owes on two more notes' on the new fire truck—each for $12,500, one due in 1956, the other next year. There is still about $6.000 owed on the police and traffic surveys, last of which Is in the process of being completed. University of Arkansas City Planning Division Is ready to wind up its job here, which will include a proposed zoning regulation. This will leave the city with another bill. This one amounts to »250 per month until July. One of the fire trucks had to have a new engine to remain operative. Cost: $3,000, yet to be paid. Hope for. Increases City Council and Buchanan, himself a former Councilman who, as such, wrestled with city financial problems previously, are more than aware of the city's tenuous financial position. That's why they were anxious to complete the special census which will mean a hoped-for 96,000 per year increase in state tax turnbacks. Turnbacks are due to run heavier anyway. Arkansas has been collecting more taxes than anticipated each year of late. Increased police receipts have been mentioned. Chances of this item increase going very far in bol- FARM (Continued from Pa«« N tiling." SS Per Cent Under the tentative committee : jreement reached yesterday, prices of the feed grains — oats, barley, rye and grain sorghums- would be supported at a level five parity points below corn. The bill would provide 90 per cent of parity supports for corn in commercial growing areas this year, making the feed grain level 85 per cent. Parity is a price determined under farm law to be fair to farmers in relation t» their cost*. Ellender and Rep. Poage (D- Tex) said the higher support levels included in the bill would raise prices on all the grain? above those previously announced To qualify for either price sup ports or soil bank payments, farm ers would be required to recx-e their plantings 15 per cent below the acreage limitations fixed by the Agriculture Department. Truman Plans Europe Visit NEW YORK an — Former President Harry S. Truman has made a tentative reservation to sail on the liner United States for Europe on May 11 for a two-month visit. The tentative reservation for a suit for Truman was made yesterday before he and his wife left by train last night for Independence, Mo., after an Easter visit with their daughter Margaret and a speech before the Overseas Press Club Tuesday night. The former President told newsmen yesterday that he wanted to go to Europe to accept an honorary degree from Oxford University in England, which had been seeking his presence for three years. Ike to Start Vacation Monday WASHINGTON WI—President Eisenhower plans to leave next Monday or Tuesday for his usual spring golf vacation in Augusta, Oa. The exact day depends, White House press secretary James C. Hngerty said, on the outcome of the Masters' Tournament at the Augusta National course where the President occupies a cottage during his visits. If there is a playoff to break n sterlng the department are being «<;• Eisenhower will wait until watched carefully. It's too early to iuesaa y- tell yet if the increase will be permanent and, if so, to what extent. Due .for a major overhaul Is the schedule of privilege licenses—the fee the city collects from business firms. No Changes City Clerk Bill Malin said the bchedule has not been changed since It went into effect some 35 or more years ago. Last year, 1 privilege licenses amounted to about $32,000 in income. Even an increase of as much as 30 percent would help things only slightly, from the viewpoint of overall city financing. In an attempt to hike income however, City Council probably will give the schedule careful study and recommend some raises In the near future. The city's "take" on collection ot these fees and garbagR fees Is expected to increase, however. Eur- lier this year, Buchanan publicly stated that the city must make a real effort to collect every penny owed it. For this purpose, he hired Oscar Alexander as a special .collector. Alexander will attempt to get the nearly $30,000 citizens have been beating the city out of each year. Hog SlaMohter Record Set NATIONAL STOCKYARDS, 111. (fi —Six major St. Louis area packing plants butchered 441,471 hogs last month — a new record, the St. Louis Livestock Exchange reported yesterday. Only once, in March, 1944, has the slaughter gone over the 400,000 figure. Stocks in coolers in this area increased slightly during the month to 7,533 tons, but were below the Inventory figure of a year ago when 8,371 tons were on hand. POLITICS (Continued from Page 1) St. John, political editor of the Atlanta Constitution. The immediate maneuvering in New Jersey, whose primary comes April 17, centered around a weekly television program by Democratic Gov. Robert Meyner. Meyner has invited New York's OoV. Averell Harriman, who says he .'.s "not an active candidate" for the presidential nomination, to appear with him this Sunday. Kefauver Backers contended the appearance would be political and demanded equal time in the Meyner program. A Meyner aide said the demand had been turned down on the ground the affair Is for discussion of Interstate problems ind not political. K>fftuver's. name is alone on the New Jersey primary ballot. i Mt. Etna Spews Fire and Lava CATANIA, Sicily I* — Volcanolo- gists expressed .fears today that . flame-spouting Mt. Etna's eruption may become its most violent in many years. Tongues of fire, visible along 40 miles of the famed Sicilian tourist coast from Catnnia to Tjiormina. shot 500 feet into the sky as the 10, 70^- foot volcano spewed lava with explosions every second. Experts from the University of Catania's Etna Observatory said there was no immediate danger to villages at the foot of the mountain. But there "could be danger if Hngerty said Eisenhower plans to back In Washington In time to attend the opening game of the baseball season between the Washington Senators and the New York Yankees April 17.
