Taft (R-Ohio) today avoided any party-splitting break in their relations despite some fundamental differences over U. S. policies in Korea and the Far East. 7— * The White House toofc the initia- Farmers Prefer Restrictions, Godley Asserts Rotary Club Told Of Confusion Due to Lack of Agri Policy Re-iterating what he told the ' House Committee on Agriculture in " April, Lloyd G'odley said yesterday "the farmers would rather be restricted and solvent than free and broke." Mr. Godley, Osceola farmer, spoke before members of Blytheville's Rotary Club yesterday and said he reported to the committee at the request of Congressman E. C. (Took: Ga things. "I told them that at the present time there is adequate farm credit thanks to the local banks and the Production Credit Association. "I also pointed out that the disaster loans has been 'useful, bu that I felt sure they had been abused at times . . . and that there is a definite place for the Farmers Home Administration, which has helped many farmers get their starts." he said. Lowered support prices ,he said would greatly endanger the farm credit system. "And I think the committee agreed with me." "The public," Mr. Godley said, "is somewhat confused regarding sup- porte on perishable commodities and non-perishables. I doubt if any sound program will ever be devised for supporting perishables. Confusion In USDA "Just what Secretary of Agriculture Benson plans to do regarding support prices, no one seems to know. Everyone in the Agriculture Department is apprehensive and confused regarding Mr. Benson's as yet unannounced policies." Secretary Benson, Mr. Godley said, has "insinuated" that the far. mere have been living off the bounty of the nation and has voiced displeasure with "our practical" farm program. However, Mr. Godley stated, the House Committee on Agriculture has said it will not- approve any farm program which does not offer improvements over the present one. Mr. 3odley was introduced by Rotarian James Roy. Guests at yesterday's meeting included Capt. Robert Reeder, Bailey Plemming, Little Hock; Cliff Byrd, St. Louis; Grady Burton, West Memphis, and Dr. M. Lloyd Godley, Oklahoma City. Nehru Sees Settlement Of Suez Canal Dispute CAIRO, Egypt (/P)—India's Prime Minister Nehru, after a 90-minute conference with Egypt's Premier Maj. Gen. Mohammed Naguib. said today there was a "way of settlement" for the bitter Anglo-Egyptian dispute over military control of the Suez Canal. Nehru, who stopped off briefly In Cairo en route by air to the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in London, did not specify what It was. tive only a few hours after Eisenhower had said at a news conference that "No," he did not agree with Taft's assertion that the U. S. "might as well forgek the United Nations as far as the Korean War is concerned." Eisenhower aides called Taft's office to inquire about the health of the Senate Republican leader. They intimated the President planned to address a note of cheer to Taft, hospitalized in Cincinnati with an undiagnosed hip pain. Eisenhower had sent such a message when the senator was in Walter Reed Hospital here last week for a checkup. Taft was' publicly silent about the President's disavowal of the Ohioan's proposal that the U. S. withdraw "from all further peace negotiations in Korea" if present ,ruce talks fail. Aides said Taft would not comment for several days, If at all. But Robert A. Taft Jr., the Benator's son, noted in a telephone interview from Cincinnati that Taft had said in his Tuesday night speech he was giving only his personal views on the Far Eastern situation and had said these views were not intended "as any criticism of what is being done or not done." The "Not a senator's Break" son said he is satisfied the difference of opinion could not be construed as a "break" with the President, nor would it be likely to be reflected opposition to administration policies. . Taft is scheduled to return to Washington Sunday. The Eisenhower and Taft statements left the two most powerful men in the Republican party publicly at odds not only on the U, N.'s future rola in the Far East if truce talks fail but on the methods by which peace might be attained in that area. Taft has favored a "one-bite" approach to a Korean settlement, wrapping up also the problems of Formosa and Indochina in a single STASSEN STUDIES INDIAN METHOD — Mutual Security Director Harold Stassen watches a camel plod past, turning a watenvheel at Rai village north of Delhi, India.

WHITNEY MOSCOW (AP) — Western diplomats in Moscow said today they regarded replacement of military control by a civilian Soviet High Commissioner in East Germany as considerably strengthening the power of agreement. Eisenhower told yesterday's news conference that objectives are not attained in 'one great sudden agreement that everybody sits down and signs. He said if the present U N. truce offer is accepted by the Communists the Allies would be in a better position to go ahead with a just program in Korea than they are now. "Extremely Unsatisfactory" Taft said In his Tuesday night ,peech any truce under present conditions is bound to be "extreme- y unsatisfactory" since it would divide Korea unnaturally and it night release a million Chinese soldiers to be used against Nationalist-held Formosa and French Indochina. If the truce efforts fail, Taft proposed that the U. S. tell England and other allies that it is withdrawing from all further peace negotiations. He did - not outline Foreign Minister V. M .Moiotov. He will now have, they said, direct and persona! control of German affairs in the Soviet occupied zone. Previously these had been under the Defense Ministry and, ndirectly, the whole Soviet government. The Kremlin announced yesterday that V. S. Semyonov, one of this country's leading German 3erts, had been appointed Soviet High Commissioner for Germany. He will take over from Gen. Vos- sily Chuikov, chief of the Soviet Control Commission, who will now be limited to command of Soviet occupation forces. 'Western observers here think it quite possible that Chuikov Will be recalled even from that post and given a new assignment in the Soviet Union. The diplomats speculated that a reason for the shift might be a possibility that the Soviet Union may propose talks on the reunification of Germany among the civilian High Commissioners of Britain, France, the U. S. and their new appointee, Semyonov. Same Level As Conant Semyonov's appointment, they said, apparently put him on the same level as U. s. High Commissioner James Bryant Conant and the British and French representatives. It is clear, these sources said, that the Western commissioners will now have to deal with Semy- onov rather than with Gen. Chui- kov as they have done in the pasf. Semyonov's appointment carries the rank of ambassador and, as a "If you are going to go it alone me place," Eisenhower said, "you of course have to go it alone every- vhere. . . . Our whole policy is based on this theory: No single nation can live alone in the world. Ne have to have friends."

Western diplomats here do not believe there is any simple answer as to whether the shift means a fundamental change in Soviet policies toward Germany, but the possibility is the subject of much djscussion.

State health officials predicted the proposed cutbacks would hamper construction of several hosltals, require a reduction in force, reduce or eliminate immunization and the vitamin program of the maternal nnd child health division of thi state department, preclude the tuberculosis, x-ray program and curtail educational and other service projects. On the local scene, the only de- nlte word received so far concerns the Mississippi County Tuberculosis Association. May Cut Clinics Mrs. Francis GammiU, executive lecretary of the association here, said Dr. A. C. Curtis, director of the Tuberculosis Control division of the State Health Department, informed her'that the free x-ray program would be curtailed by the reductions. Whereas the visits of the mobile x-ray units cent out by the State Health Department now are. made to this county each year, such clinics probably could be held only ever.yother year if funds are reduced, he said.

TUCKMAN and BILL SHINN MUNSAN (AP) — The Communists rejected outright at least one major reported concession of a new Allied truce plane submitted in secret sessions Monday at Pan- munjom, it was disclosed today. The plan had been called a "now-or-never" offer by many was disclosed today. The plan had been called a "now-or-never" offer by many sourdes and the Beds had been expected to answer it at next Monday's meeting, first after a weeklong recess. The Communists turned down on the spot an Allied proposal that ultimate disposition of any Red prisoners who refuse to go home be left to the United Nations. The Allies had insisted previously that these prisoners be freed If they still balk after a limited, post-armistice period of Red "explanations." However, excerpts of Monday's meeting quoted North Korean Gen. Nam II as saying the Reds won't accept either proposal He made it clear the Communists don't like .he new plan or the old one. 48,500 Refuse Return Some 48,500 prisoners in Allied camps have refused to go back to Communism. The Reds have proposed that the fate of those unA moved by "explanations" be left to a post-armistice political conference. Nam said It is "inconceivable" hat the. Allies propose turning over any Red prisoners to the TJ.N. .vhich he labeled "a belligerent itself." The 0. N. General Asse.bly on Dec. 5, 1952, approved an armi- tice plan drafted by India which provided that, final disposition of unwilling prisoners be left to the U. N. The excerpt was revealed in a etter which Ma].' Gen. Choi Duk hin. South Korean truce delegate, delivered Thursday to the seniof Hied delegate', Lt. Qen. William C. Harrison, Jr. Although not made ublic, the letter Was obtained rom reliable sources which can )t be Identified. Boycott Threatened The allied plan, still under offi- ial secrecy, has rankled South C o r e a n s. Government officials ave threatened to boycott the nice talks and possibly fight on lone unless the plan is killed or evised. There were cries of "appease- ncnt" of the Communists and a sellout" of South Korea. In his letter to Harrison, Choi pecifically called on the U. N. ruce delegation to: 1. Transmit to "the policy mak- ng authority" the opinion and rec- mmendations in his letter. 2. Withdraw the latest Allied uce proposal and prepare a new proposal after the talks are resumed Monday. 3. Grant "full consultation" well in advance to the Republic of Korea in the preparation of the new proposal. Choi went out of his way to make clear that the letter represented "my personal point of view." However, It was known that the letter was approved by President Syng- man Rhee and was taken by South Korean government leaders to represent the views of the Republic of Korea. Choi boycotted the Monday truce session in a move unprecedented Sec TRUCE on Page 3 'I Man Slightly Hurt in Collision A collision in front of the star- vue Drive-in Theatre on Highway 61 South last night resulted in minor injuries to Raymond Stringer and property damage to his automobile and the other car, driven, by Kelsie Baker of Blythevllle, Rt. 4.
