The Olds, he said, was a total loss. Holloway may have been thrown from the auto, Crye stated. *'He was lying outside the car when I arrived. Sharp said he evidently was thrown," Crye reported. Sharp was unhurt. The accident occurred at 10:30 last night, according to Crye, and the airmen were returning to Blytheville. out disclosing details. Declared Jordan Okays Cease Fire, Report Says AMMAN, Jordan (/Pj—U.N. Secretary General Dag Hammarskjold chalked up more progress in his Mideastern peace mission today as he wound up talks with Jordanian leaders. Although nothing official was revealed regarding Hammarskjold's talks in Amman, well-informed sources reported Jordan is willing to go along with a pledge of a cease-fire and general armistice observance. These sources added Jordan also was ready to agree for local commanders to seek ways of avoiding incidents along the frontier, and possibly to an increase in the number of U. N. truce observers on the, border. j After a final conference with Premier Samir El Rifai, the secretary general in a statement said that "the whole field under the mandate from the Security Ooim- ( « r l™t should be incessant demands ell. to secure observance of the Pal- °< world opinion, will be prepared to take steps to Dulles Seeking WayfoProvellS' Atom Use Intent By JOHN M. HIGHTOWER WASHINGTON UPl —Secretary of State. Dulles is studying ways to prove to the world "by word and deed" that the United States in tends to use only for defensive purposes the power of its atomic and hydrogen weapons. ' He apparently hopes in that way to bring pressure on the Soviet Union to give firm assurances that it also will refrain from the use of threat of atomic war except for defense. Dulles did not outline any specific ideas when he discussed "the project in the course of a speech last night to the American Society oi* International Law. It was the third time in recent days that an administration spokesman had provided evidence of developing American policies and tactics in foreign affairs with- In an address in New York Monday. Dulles declared U. S. readiness to join with the Atlantic allies broadening the work of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization to Include unspecified political and economic problems. Last Saturday night President Eisenhower spoke in an address j nere of creating a "rotating ad-j Isory group" to advise the gov-| ernment on foreign aid issues, apparently foreshadowing a full study of the foreign aid program and Us broad purposes.

He • ! ; ,~:?d these as being to refrain The note said Guryanov and Turkin were guilty of "exceeding the scope of their official capacity" as members of the Soviet U.N. delegation's staff. Under • the U.N. headquarters agreement, the United States reserved the right to take action against any foreign official accredited to his government's U.N. dei egation in New York City who engages in -"activities outside of his official capacity." Whle the U.S. note chided So bolev, it did not demand his recall It went no further than to request Moscow to tell Sobolev and his [ staff to mind their U.N. business henceforth. Improper Action Officials said Guryanov and Turkin were guilty of improper action because their U.N. status did not permit them to go to the Idlewild Airport, as they did with the seamen, and shephercd them through an immigration heaving as they lei't the country. If performed by a duly accredited consular official, such things are all right. Russia closed its New York consulate in 1948. ; In New York, U.N. "sources said the international organization had been notified of the action in advance by the American delegation. A secretary of the Soviet U.N. delegation said late yesterday no notification had been received at the delegation mansion in New York, and that he could not com ment. He said Sobolev was not available. \ Both Trukin and Guryanov were! listed in tne U.N. diplomatic reg-j ister as accompanied by their j wives. Officials here said Turkin had accompanied the five seamen back to Russia, and that he will be denied permission to re-enter this country. Under Pressure Secretary of State Dulles has been under some pressure to take action in the sudden flight of the five young seamen who had sought and been granted asylum in this country, Dulles had recommended asylum for these five, together with four others, from the crew of the Soviet tanker Tuapse.

Romulo in Hospital Demos in Strategy Switch; Push New Farm Bill in House By B. L. LIVINGSTONE WASHINGTON (AP) — A bill to give farmers both price supports and cash "compensatory payments" was put forward by House Democrats today as a combination designed to assure 90 per cent of parity prices on basic crops. Chairman Cooley (D-NC) of the House Agriculture Committee scheduled early committee consideration on the proposal for direct farm payments, which he said he would include in a new measure to authorize the administration's "soil bank." program. The step was cleared with Democratic House lenders last nlghl after they sidetracked a. $1,200,000,000 appropriation bill which House Approval Of Highway Bill Seen by Martin By LEWIS GULICK WASHINGTON (AP) — House Republican Leader Martin of Massachusetts predicted today the, House will pass the Democratic-sponsored highway bill by a' substantial margin and with the support of most Republicans] Martin's forecast and a similar » - ..... - - ------ . L ----one from Speaker ol the House Rayburn (D-Tex) indicated a shoo- in victory for the measure, on which the House opens debate today. House leaders scheduled five hours of debnte on the bill. Because of expected floor fights over some second provisions, they anticipated no final vote until tomorrow. (52.5 Billion Sponsored, by Hep. Fallen Md), the bill would provide (D- for billion dollars In new federal- sto to rondbuilding over tjie next 13 years. That includes 27 W billions for a 40.000-mlle system of interstate superhighways, 00 • pel- cent federally financed. To help p<iy the cost, highway user taxes would be increased $14,800,000,000 in a 16-year period, This includes a penny-a-gallon rise in the federal gasoline tax, to 3 cents. Highway legislation has had rocky going in this Congress. Hills Rejected While both President Eisenhower and Democratic leaders proclaimed the need for a big stcpup in rondbuilding, both Eisenhower's and a Democratic bill were rejected by the House last year In dispute over financing. In the showdown vote 1 64 Republicans teamed with 128 Democrats to kill the Democratic version 292-123. Eisenhower wanted to raise funds through long-term bonds. The Democrats called for new taxes. This year the administration agreed to the pay-as-you-go idea if it meant that or no bill. Martin said the Fallon bill is now "administration - supported" although Eisenhiwcr has not endorsed it in detail. I think most Republicans vote for the bill tomorrow." added in an Interview. Rayburn told news m e n measure will "win easily." will " he the Ike Speaks Low; Gets Misquoted WASHINGTON Ml — President Eisenhower dropped his voice at one point In his news conference yesterday and the result was that some reporters misunderstood a remark he made on long-range missiles. Elsenhower, disputing' charges that the United States is dragging Its feet in the development of missiles us compared to Russia, took the position that the government is doing just about all It can. The way he put it was that "we are somewhere certainly around the limit" (of maximum effort). Couldn't Hear Him The President's voice happened to be low at this point; some reporters coujd not hear him, and some misunderstood him. An Associated Press newsman understood him to say that "we are somewhere around them"—the Russians. This would have meant that the United States and Russia were about even in the missiles race. : An Associated Press story containing this erroneous .version was dispatched. Questions were raised by another AP reporter, who heard it differently. A recording of Eisenhower's remarks was played back, and The AP then sent the correct version. Mysterious Gifts EVERETT. Mass. W) — Principal James Mullen of the Parlin Junior High School has asked the school superintendent's office for help in solving n puz/lp: Someone anonymously mailed him three envelopes finch containing a $50 bill. Democrats earlier had contended would have given Eisenhower the money and "all the authority he needs" to put a soil bank program Into operation this year, Challenged by GOP The soil bank money bill had been challenged by Republicans as lacking proper authority. The sudden switch In Democratic strategy clouded the outlook for farm legislation. It also appeared to have delayed indefinitely House action on Eisenhower's request for a soil bank bill with authority to start payments this year. Democrats launched, a fight to win the equivalent of 90 per cent of parity for farm crops through a direct "compensatory payments" plan sponsored by Rep. Poage (D-Tex), Parity is a price determined under farm law to b« fair to farmers in relation to their costs. The bill would authorize the government to pay farmers — in cash —the difference between" prevailing givernment price support levels and 90 per cent of parity on wheat, corn, cotton, rice and peanuts, Would Pay Dlffereno* Thus, if the prico support level were 84 per cent — the level announced for wheat — the government would pay farmers In cash the difference between 84 and 00 per cent of parity. This is a variation 'of the plan advanced by Charles F. Brannan, Democratic former Secretary of Agriculture and turned down by Congress. • The proposal seemed certain to cause an uproar if it reached the floor of the House. Cooley told newsmen after a conference with Democratic House leaders that he would Introduce a combined soil bank and "compensatory payments" bill tomorrow, and would probably call his committee together to act Monday. Rabid Dogs Found in City Two Discovered In Pride Addition Residents of Pride Addition were warned by City Police today to keep their dogs penned. Two dogs, both believed to have had rubles, have been discovered in the area in recent days. Yesterday, police killed a dog there. Officers said it obviously was having a fit. Several days ago, another dog died after having bitten several persons and perhaps other dogs. Veterinarian N. G. Jerome said the dog died of rabies. Police are especially worried that these dogs infected other dogs in the neighborhood. Therefore, they are advising dog owners to keep their animals penned until the rabies scare is over.
