BLYTHEVILLE COURIER NEWS VOL. LH—NO. filytheville Courier Blylheville Daily News Mississippi Valley Leader Blytheville Herald THE DOMINANT NEWSPAPER Of NORTHEAST ARKANSAS AND SOUTHEAST MISSOURI BLYTHEVILLE, ARKANSAS, THURSDAY, APRIL 19, 1956 TWENTY PAGES Soviet's Agreement To Atom Agency Seen As Bid for Good Will By JOHN M. HIGHTOWER WASHINGTON (AP) — Diplomats credited Russia with another strong bid for international good will today in its agreement to join the Western powers in setting up a worldwide atoms-for-peace agency. A 12-nation conference, including the Soviet Union and the United States, agreed last night on a charter for the proposed new organization which would function under the general sponsorship of the United Nations. The charter will be presented an 84-nation conference which w meet at U. N. headquarters New York in September. , The agreement was annoiuiC' by the State Department after series of meetings which bega Feb. 27. The action appears to assui creation of a project initiated President Eisenhower in Decerr ber 1953. He called for an inte national atoms - for - peace po which would spread,the benefits peaceful atomic power over th world. To Pool Material In essence the organization designed to pool contributed atom ic materials from the Unite States, Russia, Britain, Franc and Canada primarily, and mak them, available to applicant coun tries which lack the knowledg and Industrial resources for pro ducing their own atomic fuels. In the consuming countries th fuels will be."burned" in atomi furnaces to produce electric pow e rand thereby raise the Industrie level and living standards. Russia for more than a year am a. half refused to cooperate am the Western powers went ahead on their own. At the Geneva summ conference last July Premier Nik olai Bulganin told Eisenhowe Russia would contribute fission able material if an agency wa set up. Subsequently Moscow agreed to take part in the confer ence here. Its representative wa? Ambassador Georgi N. Zarubin. Conceded Two Points Early in the sessions Zarubin conceded two points which helpec to make the final outcome pos: ble. He dropped a bid to include Red China. He also yielded on Soviet proposal that the new agei cy be subject to the big power veto, la the U. N. Security Council The Soviete are reported to have sta ted reswrVaTSbn.Sj^Q^ points of the charter'/-' joined in making adoption of the charter by the 12-country group unanimous. Not all the objections came from Russia, however. India and some other nonalomic powers are reported to have protested that some early drafts would have given them little say in the agency- This was the third Soviet action this week seemingly calculated to promote the idea that Russia is now cooperating in constructive developments. Other Indications Others were an offer of cooperation in U. N. ei'forts to make peace between Israel and the Arab states' and the announced dissolution of the international communist information agency, the Cominform. American officials remain highly skeptical of Soviet aims in these maneuvers, but they concede thev. have wide appeal for millions off people. i The machinery provided by the charter for the new atomic agency consists essentially of: 1.

That was the word today from Herman Lindsey, Little Rock, director of the State Highway Patrol. Last fall, the state reduced to one man its patrol force in Blytheville. . . The Courier News voiced opposition to the move in view of tfie fact that traffic on the county's roads and streets was increasing seadily. State Representative Jimmie Edwards took up the cause and bas been corresponding with Lindsey and other state officials l&ce. Yesterday, Lindsey came to Blytheville to confer with Edwards and Sheriff William Berryman regarding; the county's .raffic problems. He readily admitted that the rea needs an additional trooper and told Edwards he will send one as soon as suitable housing available. In the meantime, he said he vill use one man from his office n Little Rock, Crittenden County roopers and others in Missis- ippi County to work alternating- weekends in the Blytheville area.

As they came out of the hote a smartly dressed woman shriekei at Bulganin: "I want to talk t you. She was hustled off in i police van. The Soviet leader turned and stared at her but mad' no move. Crowd Silent As Bulganin and Khrushchei drove off to the Cenotaph Memorial in Whitehall the crowd was silent—in keeping with the restrained and chill reception the Soviet leaders received earlier. At the war memorial, the Kremlin chiefs deposited a five-foot tall creation of lilies and red roses. A white card on it said: 'From the great and gallant people of the Soviet Union to .the eternal memory o,f the. warriors of Great Srialii) gether with the gallant warrlois of our country gave their lives in he first and second world wars n the common struggle for peace and the security of nations. The ceremony took place in ilence. Fifteen minutes earlier, an. unidentified group laid an elaborate wreath on the Cenotaph with card "from" the Soviet underground.

Wants Iron Curtain Lowered The official conference agenda See RUSSIAN on Page 6 to bridge the gap sound soil bank can operative." The action Was needed to bolster farm income, Benson said in a statement prepared for the, Senate Agriculture Committee, because "we do not have the weapons we had counted on to pull down the surplus and strengthen farm prices. Benson was called before the committee to explain the price support-boosting action announced by President Eisenhower in .his message vetoing a Democratic- backed farm bill. The measure contained the soil bank plan. It also had numerous support-boost- ng features which the administration disliked. Some Democrats have questioned the propriety of Eisenhowers action suggested it ran counter to ad- ninistration arguments that high supports encourage " overproduction. • Ample Authority Benson said farm law establishing the administration - backed flexible price support system gives ample authority for raising supports after they are once set. "The law provides that the basic commodities may be supported above the minimum levels .specified in the flexible scale, Benson said. Under the Presidents action supports for wheat were raisec from 76 to 83.7 per cent of parity corn from 81 to 80.2 and rice fro: 75 to 82.7. Parity is a standard for measuring farm prices declared by law to be fair to farmers in relation to their costs. On Soil Bank Prospects Benson emphasised that the increases in supports are "based the prospect of sound soil bank, legislation that would attack the surplus problem head-on. "I do not approve of a permanent floor for the basic com- noditles at 82.5 per cent of parity without regard to supply, he See FARM on Pape 6 Brotherhood Duties Of SINGLE COPY FIVE CENTS Egypt, Israel Agree To New Cease Fire Hostilities Ended By Unconditional Armistice Terms By ERIC GOTTGETREU JERUSALEM, Israeli Sector (AP) —'Dag Hammarskjold announced today Egypt and Israel have agreed to an unconditional cease-fire on their borders, effective at 6 p.m. last night "and from lhat time on."
