MONDAY, JANUARY I, 19M .BLYTHEVILLB (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE FIVE Cheering Sudanese Hail Independence KHARTOUM, Sudan (AP) — The Sudan was embarked on its course as a new independent nation today after nearly 57 years of joint rule by Britain and Egypt. A cheerii* Parliament yester- d»y heard Premier Ismail El Aiharl read the proclamations an. nouncing recognition of the country's independence by its former rulers. Thousands of other cheering Sudanese lined the streets to hail the premier following the parliamentary session. The British and Egyptians had Jointly ruled the Sudan under a condominium. In an agreement concluded Feb. 12, 1953, Britain and Egypt laid put a three-stage •chedule for Sudanese self-determination. Election It called for election of a Parliament, formation of a government under international supervision and a three-year transition period TRAFFIC (Continued from Page 1) Friday to midnight Monday. Estimate Was 420 The council's pre-New Year estimate of 420 traffic fatalities would have created a new record for the New Year holiday, eclipsing the 407 toll to the four-day weekend 6f . 1952-53. Last year's two-da^- weekend NeW Year's holidays claimed 29« lives in'traffic accidents. • . • - f The council credited' stricter law enforcement on the nation's highways for the lessened, death rates. Most states, sobered by the "Black Christmas" death tol!, ordered every available law officer to high. way patrol while four states called on the National Guard for help. .The Associated Press, for purposes of comparison, conducted a nonhbliday' survey .from Dec. 9-12. It showed 364 persons died in traffic accidents, 57 from fires and 88 from miscellaneous causes for an over-all total of 509.

FRENCH for the country to choose union with Egypt, independence and possible membership in the British Commonwealth after independence. The Sudanese rapidly bypassed that schedule. The National Unionist party of El Azhari gained an absolute majority in Parliament in the irst general election in November, 1953. El Azhari ruled .out membership in the British Commonwealth soon after he was chosen premier. The movement for union with E = ypt collapsed soon after Sudan- born Mohamed Naguib was deposed as President of Egypt late in 1954. The Sudanese Parliament voted last August lo decide the country's future by plebiscite instead of in a constituent assembly as provided by the British-Egyptian agreement. Britain and Egypt agreed. Unanimous Vote Premier El Azhari leapfrogged that agreement Dec. 15, however, when he announced he was going to proclaim outright independence. He got a unanimous vote from Parliament for such a move four days later.' . Britain and Egypt again said they would, agree and recognize the country's independence. A temporary Constitution was approved by Parliament Saturday to serve until a cbnstituent assembly can draw up a .permanent charter.' A five-man commission was sworn in to take, over the governor general's duties. The Sudan'.- is population is nine million.and it is a 967,500-square- rriile country of cotton, desert and jungle. Extending from Egypt's southern border to British Uganda, it controls most of the- reaches of the Upper Nile. Egypt depends on these waters for irrigation and power. Egypt said last May an agreement "in principle" had been reached on sharing the waters.

In another troubled tin, Com' munlst last German Premier Otto Orotewohl again said there is no chance for Germai unification except on Communist termi. Hungarian Premier Andras Hegedus said in an interview the chief aim of his government is "peaceful coexistence." But he termed President Eisenhower's Christmas message expressing concern for the liberty .of the Soviet satellites "gross interference in the internal matters of the peoples democracies." In the Soviet Union, the Kremlin leaders celebrated the .lew year with a big party and invited Western diplomats to attend for the first time. Soviet President Klementi Voroshilov left for Bast Berlin to attend the 80th birthday celebration of East German President wll- helm Pieck .and issued a statement saying he hoped 1956 would be year of still greater relaxation of tension and "growing friendship, among all peoples."

Thousands in the United States headed for traditional football games. A million persons wer. expected to see the Tournament of Roses Parade at Pasadena, Calif., under sunny skies. In Philadelphia, 12,000 Mummers welcomd the new year with their annual parade. EGYPT (Continued from Page 1) and the United States would jointly put up about 200 millions and the World Bank would . give Egypt a long-term loan for a * similar amount. The World Bank has not yet formally pledged such a loan but has made clear that the Egyptians will get the money once they make a start. Conditions But the bank has tentatively attached certain conditions. One is that some controls and watch dog procedures, .should be permitted the bank in the management of Egypt's economy. The bank's position is that it wants to be sure that economic practices which it considers unsound will not Jeopar. dize its loan. Nasser is reported to have told Byroade bluntly he considers that an unnecessary intrusion into Egypt's affairs and in some respects a demand infringing on Egypt's sovereignty. The ; Egyptian government has objected also to a requirement that contracts for ork on the dam be let on the basis of competitive biuding. World Bank rules are said to require competitive bidding such cases but officials believe the difficulties on this point can be negotiated.

TAX (Continued from Page 1) a bill to prevent a revenue loss, amounting to almost three billion dollars annually, from a drop in corporation income levies and numerous excise tax rates scheduled to take efiect April 1. Such a bill would be considered first in the House, where Speaker Rayburn (D-Tex) lias exhibited a coolness toward a quick income tax cut. If he holds that attitude when the House takes up UM u- (enslon bill in February or early March, it is easily passible under House rules to ward off any tax- cutting plan for tax bills nearly always reach the House floor under a procedure banning amendments. But in the Senate, *ny number may present an amendment on the floor. Thus the tax battle could break out there if one senator offered an income tax cut amendment to the bill to maintain present corporation and excise rates. Thus the major tax battle may well develop to the Senate. \9 mm -M—• at Hays' One Stop Shopping Center! .2 for 350 Krafts 10 Oz.
