Reed has shown increasing irritation over the refusal, since February, of the GOP leadership to clear his bill to cut personal income taxes by 10 per cent on July 1. The rules committee had merely been sitting on it, but yesterday it voted to kill the measure. The move to override the ways and means committee, one of the oldest and proudest groups in Congress, obviously left wounds which would take a long time to heal. The administration victory in the rules committee carne after three hours. As the hearings opened, informed GOP sources said two Republican rules committee members—Reps. Clarence Brown (Ohio) and Heece (Tenn) were balking at the ad- i_4 I ministration move. 47 1-2 24 134 5-8 31 3-4 Livestock NATIONAL STOCKYARDS. 111.

Later, Republican National Chairman Leonard W. Hall was said to have sent word to Rules Committee Chairman Leo Allen (R-I11) that Reece had agreed with the administration's position. Apparently he was the man who swung the scale. Brown reportedly did not vote. But the final decision came in a closed session, by voice vote, and the stands of individual members were not recorded. The bill cleared by the rules committee is a measure introduced only three days ago by Hep. Sadlak (R-Conn). It would extend the tax for six months but exempt firms making less than $100,000 profit a year.

House Demos to Fight Profit Tax Extension WASHINGTON W) _ The House Democratic leadership today threw Lutherans have reversed an earlier I its influence against the Eisenhow- decision and decided to finance a multi-million dollar missions and college construction program by borrowing money. Granting of authority for the hoard of directors to borrow up to 56,000,000 cleared the last major obstacle to delegates ending the synod's 42nd triennial convention this afternoon. I er administration' tactics of bypassing the tax-writing Ways and Means Committee in its battle to get extension of the excess profits tax. Acting Democratic Leader McCormack (Mass.) served notice he would make a fight of it — on the basis of objections to the procedure — when the issue comes to the house floor, probably Monday. (Continued from Page O ditions" for accepting a truce a this time, Rhee answered: "Simultaneous withdrawal both the Chinese and U. N. forces from Korea and a mutual security pact to be signed between the U. S and the Republic of Korea. Another proposal is that the polit ical conference (after an armi stice) to be limited to a period o :hree months so that if no satisfactory ' result is agreed upon a' the end of that period the armistice will be considered ended." Asked whether he planned to • the 8,000 anti-Communist North Korean prisoners remainini n U. N. camps since, the breakout last week of 27,000 others, Rhee said:: "I have undertaken with the UNO o have our guards co-operate vith the Americans—to prevenl urther outbreaks." The U. N. Prisoner of War Command has already announced that S. guards have replaced the ROK guards at all POW camps in the mainland. Rhee said he did not wish to :ornment at this time on a ques- ion of whether the U. S. had noti- ied him it would withdraw mili- ary and economic aid if he still efused to go along with a truce. Asked whether he thought South vorea could light on alone if U. s. jd were stopped, Rhee said: "If there is no other way to :ease fire than to sign the truce s it is, then I believe it is best or the U. S. to let the Koreans ry to save themselves. When the ruce is signed, the U. S. can not articipate in the fight, but it can How the Koreans to continue the ghting alone. The Koreans believe iey can win the war if they are iven the weapons and ammunition and if not, the Koreans want to try anyway." Asked whether he thought the Allies would sign a separate truce with the Communists without South Korea, R£ee replied: "I do not think the U. s. -will, nor do we ask the U. S. to hold up the signin gof the truce either on the present terms or with some alteration because of Korea's refusal to accept the truce." In Washington, President Eisenhower was reported to have told Senate leaders he is willing to send any man in the American government to confer with Rhee. He reportedly said such a meeting should be held away from the electric atmosphere of S-'' Hl "irea, possibly in Japan or Okinawa. Eisenhower gave no inc* i he would go to Korean himself. WEATHER (Continued from Page 1) ported. Thrip damage on young cotton has been worse than usual, due to lack o! rain. Arkansas farm leaders termed the drought in a "critical" stage as milk production was down by afi much as one-third in some sections and many soybean and cotton fields have failed to receive enough moisture to bring the crops up to a stand. The Agriculture Extension Service office in Little Rock announced & special meeting of extension specialists and district agricultural agents for Monday. No Real Rain The meeting is to "draft plans to combat the problem." C. A. Vines, associate director of the extension service, said the meeting will concern itself with what lanu- ers can do to recoup losses already suffered and what new crops can be planted ai this late date. Over the state last night and yesterday, a few widely scattered thundershowers brought relief to isolated areas. Much the same is in store today, but the U. S. Weather Bureau at Little Rock said that no real break in the hot, dry weather was in sight. , Any rain, the weatherman said, will be local and temporary. Continued warm was the outlook for the entire state. Showers set in early in North j Arkansas. A heavy rain was reported this morning at Plippin and light rain fell at Mountain home. Ft. Smith and Ozark recorded temperatures of 102 degrees yesterday—high for the state. It was 101 at Arkadelphia, 100 at Plippin and Batesville, 97 at Texarkana, 96 at Little Rock and 95 at Fayetteville. Scattered Showers Thunder-showers hit the Central Mississippi Valley during the night, heaviest fall was nearly two inches at Springfield, 111., with falls of more than one-half inch from Central Illinois and Central Indiana nto Southern Michigan. Thundershowers also were reported along the Gulf Coast with the largest fall 1.15 inch at Appalachicola, Pla. A few showers fell in the western :ections of the New England states. High temperatures fell off slight- y in the desert Southwest region Thursday with the top of 112 at Blythe and El Centre, Calif. The lay's top mark was 117 at Presidio, Tex. It was 91 at Blythe during the night compared to a cool 36 at Big 'iney, Wyo. QUEENLY SHAPE-Billie Nelson of New York City makes it obvious why she was named "1953 Vacation Queen."

'Old Times' Is Scientist Topic ROME <#>>• — A group of Soviet scientists will emerge from behind the iron curtain this summer to talk over old times. With geologists from 39 other nations, they are scheduled lo discuss this planet'5 quaternary period of the cenozoic era. This is the period, througl which we're still struggling, markec by the rise of man and his dominance of the earth. The occasion of the get-together is the fifth international congress for study of the quaternary period When the congress opens its meetings in Rome on Aug. 30, a number of Soviet and satellite geologists are due to be among the 500 scientists in attendance. Among items on the agenda is a trip to Naples and the famous temple of,, Jupiter Serapis, one of the meccas of modern "geology. Because of the temple's submergence by the sea and its rise again, geologists have deduced that continents, too, have been changing their elevation relative to the sea.
