Bureau Pledges Support of Government Farm Policies BOSTON <A1»)-A federal farm official left the Convention of the American farm Bureau Federation today reassured of continued strong support of Kwenhow- er administration farm policies by the big farm organisation, Asst. Secretary of Agriculture Marvin L. McLain, here to speak before convention meetings, said he found virtually no opposition to • gradual withdrawal of government controls. The Farm Bureau itself had ad- vocated such policies, but rece.nt Republican election setbacks in some farming areas had stirred speculation that farmers wanted more rattier than less government aid. At an open hearing held by the convention's Resolutions Committee, not a single voice was raised against this "less government in agriculture" theme.

He said that unless this is done, the country would sink "into the morass of dead and dying economies that are so common in Western Europe." He said labor leaders are taking advantage of the situation to sit up labor monopolies that would destroy the national economy, Expect Bureau Help Upon his return to Washington, McLaln was expected to advise Secretary of Agriculture E?ra Taft Benson that he can expect Farm Bureau help on new legislative proposals which would lower price supports for wheat and tobacco. Shuman outlined what he termed a simple three-point program to return terming to a prosperous base. It was: (1) discontinue all production controls, (2) lower price supports to a percentage of the previous three-year market price, and (3) freeze existing surpluses so that they cannot compete with new crops in domestic and foreign larkets. Shuman said the surpluses should be used only to help needy areas abroad not able to buy. SCAPULAR MEOAl « CHAW M. t*«»UtMI Sc«p«l*r M • o • I to k<M m»d« Mndmt •I dtllcat* filigr**.

HFRALD t Tuesday, bee. 9, 1958 V 3 Drivers Die at Bunkhouse at Truck Stop LANCASTER, MO. (Ai»)-Death of three Arkansas truck Drivers in a bunkhouse at a Lancaster truck stop apparently were caused by carbon monoxide poisoning. Coroner Bryce Norman said tests at the Missouri highway patrol laboratory showed the blood of John Parker, 28, Little Rock, Ark., and William Briner, 22, Mai- vern, Ark., contained a saturation of 60 to 65 per cent is enough to cause death. An autopsy on the third victim, Louis Lee Warden, 24, Litle Rock, showed he apparently died of the same cause, Dr. Hans Schlumber- ger, Arkansas state medical examiner, reported at Little Rock. Warden, a driver for D. W. Hoskins, Malvern, Ark., died Friday. Parker and Briner arrived late Saturday with another Hoskins truck. They were found dead Sunday morning.

READ THE CLASSIFIED ADS CHICAGO U) — Come Christmas party season, strong spirits will deny death its holiday. The National Safety Council is predicting between 500 and 650 traffic deaths for this year's four-day Christmas weekend. During the last four-day Christmas holiday in 1056, 855 persons died or received fatal injuries in traffic accidents. Fifty-five percent of all the Christmas holiday accidents last year involved a drinking driver, says the National Safety Council. It maintins office parties are one of the important culprits. Speed was a factor in 72 per cent of the smashups. Against this, authorities in many areas plan a new method of attack called "selective enforcement." Police manpower an 1 patrol cars will be increased, and concentrated in known high accident sections to head off the drinker or the speeder before he harms himself and others. Judges are expected to mete out heavier - than - usual fines to these drivers and slap some in jail for the duration of the holiday season. According to the Safety Council, the four horsemen of motor-age mayhem are darkness, speed, alcohol and pedestrian errors. So Shall He Reap Fifty - four per cent of traffic deaths last rear occurred at night. Thirty-eight per cent of them involved a driver exceeding the speed limit. Thirty per cent of them Involved a driver who had been drinking. Among pedestrian fatalities, SO per cent of the victims were crossing between intersections. Another 17 per cent stepped from behind parked cars. give her a top fashion Sissy Blouse by Judy Bond $ Flatter her femininity with this daintiest of Dacron® and cotton blouses, entire bib front of lace, lace trim on the collar, too.
