"As a group, I believe they will enable us to achieve the much needed improvement in military life and bring about increased stability in our armed forces." End adv for noon, KST. . eight House members in the group. Meanwhile, ai the Augusta Whit« Houes, President Eisenhower left virtually no doubt today he would ask Congress for authority to use U. S. troops in the turbulent Middle East if the United Nations voted to quell any aggression there. A statement of U.S. policy dealing with Arab-Israeli strife set forth the President's view of the situation as his vacation headquarters here announced he will make a major foreign policy address in Washington April 21. James C. Hagerty, White House press secretary, said Eisenhower will speak that night at a banquet concluding the annual meeting of the American Society of Newspaper Editors. Hagerty went into no detail on the foreign policy theme, but it appeared likely the Mid-East will come in for Presidential attention. A little less than four hours after Eisenhower arrived here from Washington yesterday for a week of golf and work, the vacation White House here put out a statement saying the President and Secretary of Slate Dulles regard "wiih the utmost seriousness" the "repeated incidents of hostility in the Middle East." The statement, issued with full approval of Elsenhower and Dulles said further: "The United States, In accordance with its responsibilities, under the charter of the United Nations, will observe its commitments within constitutional means to oppose any aggression in the area. "The United . States is likewise determined to support and assist any nation which might be subjected to such aggression. The United States Is confident that other nations will act similarly in the cause of peace." The statement also pledged U.S. support "In the fullest measure" for the Middle Easl peace mission of Dag Hammarsk'jold, the U.N secretary general. That pledge, the White House here said, is In line with the unanimous vote of the U(N. Security Council, "the body on which all the members of the United Nations have conferred primary responsibility for the maintenance of international peace and security." The Implicit emphasis in the statement, Issued as Arab-Israeli border fighting and killing continued, was on (11 fulfilling U. S. commitments under U.N. charter terms with resoect to quashing aggression, and (2) doing so "within con.slHuUonnl ?nenn.s." As for the latter point, Elsen- hower told iv new.s conference last week he never would send American forces into any action which could be Interpreted as war without prior approval of Congress. Yesterday's statement clearly means that H the U.N. Security Council labeled any nation an aggressor In the Middle East and called for use "of force to halt aggression, the President would feel obliuatMl to put the matter before Congress for a final decision on committing U.S. troops. The While House statement amounted to a reaffirmatlon of Eisenhower's view that a solution of the Middle East dispute must be found through Ihe U.N. For months the administration has kepi on Ice Israeli's application for of about 63 million dollars worth of U.S. arms. Israel co n t e n d s the arms are needed lo offset the sale of weapons to Egypt by Soviet-dominated Czechoslovakia. But Eisenhower is on record as saying the tJ.S. hopes lo find a bel- ter solution than contributing to an arms race. He also has said, however, that Israel's request for arms still is under study. save any amount at. any time and enjoy the same safety availability and income on your account here Current Dividend Rate 3% .BLYTHEVILLE FEDERAL SAVINGS & LOAN ASS'N 200 N. 2nd St. Phone 3-4553 Obituary Rosetta Hood Dies Here; Rites Are Tomorrow Mrs. Rosetta Lillian Hood. 78, died yesterday afternoon at Chickasawba Hospital.

What changes to propose, with the hope of picking up the few key votes, was the prime question facing GOP leaders. It was generally acknowledged that one GOP proposal would be to knock out the 90 per cent of parity provision in favor oi a lower support rate. Martin, who met yesterday With Undersecretary of Agriculture True D. Morse, declined to say what specific proposals were being considered or what Morse recommended. But he said "I think we are gointr io win." Hep.

Support Fledged The statement said the President and Secretary of State Dulles regard "with the utmost seriousness the repeated incidents of hostility In the Middle, East." It added that the United .States is "confident that other naions will act similarly in the cause of peace." Support "in the fullest measure" for the Hammarskjold mission also was pledged. The secretary general's first middle east stop was Beirut, Lebanon, where he established a base for what he expects to be a month-long mission. He told newsmen it would be improper for him to give his views on the situation now. Emille Bustini, a member of the Lebanese government, told "reporters earlier he would ask Hammarskold "to get the United Nations to implements its own 1947-48 resolutions" on Palestine. These called for internationalization of Jerusalem, which Israel claims as its capital, and for repatriation or compensation for 900,000 Arab refugees forced out of Palestine.

Burger said in a statement yesterday: "According to a preliminary investigation, the drill instructor took his platoon on a hike about 9 p.m. last night (Sunday). He marched them about a mile to an uninhabited, marshy and swamp area. Not completely familiar with the terrain, the drill instructor led his men into the swarnp and into a stream. "With no lights and in the ensuring confusion, the missing men were lost In the darkness." Surviving members of the platoon praised Sgt. McKeon's rescue actions. Pvt. Edwin Leonard, 17, of (109 Walnut St.) Roselle Park, N.J., said, "the sergeant didn't order anyone into the deep water. He was the first one In and the last one out. He did all he could." Another member of the platoon, Pvt. David H. McPherson, 20, of Chatham, N.J., said Sgt. McKeon was the "last man to leave the water after he had done everything he could to get the men out." Some of the men apparently stepped into mud holes after entering the water, others slipped or fell and were dragged by the strong current of the stream. According to the survivors, the confusion turned into near panic and many of the men struggled wildly in the water, their water soaked clothes and heavy shoes hindering them in the soft muddy bottom of the Icy stream. long-range settlement. Hnmmarskjold flew to Beirut from Rome where he conferred with various government officials and had a 20-minute private audience with Pope Plus XII.
