The snake, aroused, reportedly coiled and was ready to strike when Butch threw a fencepost across it, pinning it to the ground. The children then moved in and beat the reptile to death with posts. When their mother arrived home shortly afterward, Butch was in the process of cutting off the snake's rattles with his scout knife—and the kids wanted to know if they could have their picture made with it. They couldn't. Mother buried the snake and called father. Mox to Show Cinemascope Movies Here Wide-screen movies will be shown in Blythevllle for the first time tomorrow, when the Mox Theater on West Main Street shows the first movie on its newly-equipped screen, W. L. Moxley, owner of the theatre announced today. Cinemascope is the method which will be used at the Mox, and Mr. Moxley pointed out that it is not I a three dimensional method and j does not require the use of special 1 glasses. The first cinemascope installation in this area other than Memphis this system will be an anamorphic or condensing camera lens to 'squeeze" wide screenmovies onto standard film and a projector lens to expand them again onto the Cinemascope screen, which is two and one-half times as wide as it is high, he said.

Supported Plan The County Farm Bureau officials pointed out that the national organization supported the five-year base period for allotments at belt- wide meetings in Washington and Fort Worth this year, and was backed in doing so by the state federation. At the AFBF meeting In Chicago in June, cotton states' Jepresenta lives still supported this point, th county officials said, as did AFB tetlmony before Congrelonal com director then made recommenda tlons "apparently designed to ac cede completely to the request of th Western growers." These recommendations, th county Farm Bureau executive com mittee said, gave the Western grow ere 107,100 more acres than they re quested. "We very frankly do not sup )ort the position that AFBF has ,aken on this poitn. We hold tc ur established position that provisions of present law, as gener ally agreed upon from 1948 unti ecently, are adcguate and fair with respect to alloaations to tates, and that the provlcions ontained therein do properly re- lect trends and shifts. "Evidence of this fact is plain n that 1950 allotments to these our states totalled 41.7 per cenl f the national allotments of 21,55,000 acres and the 1954 allot- :ents according to provisions of resent law, would give them 47 er cent of the national allotment. They want 52 per cent, and AFBF national recommendations would give them 50 per cent of the proposed 1954 allotment. "We agree with AFBF that the and should have been recognized in October, 1952, and that cotton growers should have had an op- ortunity to vote on quotas for 1953. We also agree that the re- sions of present law, may be drastic and that is Is not the fault of cotton producers so \vfly or another. The namrs n! Ward and Mc„ . _ , . i Michael were brought up late in Read Courier News Classified Ads. I lne h cal .j nR much as It is the fault of the Department . of Agriculture act- Ion in 1952, We do not agree that it is now Imperiatlve to change the law with respect to dividing the 1954 national cotton allotment between the states. "The only real substances of the testimony given by western growers is to the effect that their economy be wrecked by so drastic reductions in 1954 acreage as pravided by present law. That may be so; but it is their own fault. The law was on the statue books when they made the expansion in 1951, 1952. 1953 and They made the expansion for two major reasons and one of obvious pretense. The two major •easons were (1) for profit, and (2) to build acreage history. The pretense was to comply with USDA request for increased cotton production.

"Any allocations to atates should be made according to the provWoni of present law. We also «upport the poiltlon of AFBF with respect to the need for minor amendemneU to provide for a more equtable distribution of alloted acres within states and counties. "Due to recent increased, plantings in western states, 1955 allotments, If quotas are in effect, will substantially be above the 1954, precentage of the 1954 allotments to these states under present lay, "Growers of the southeast also are in no better position to shift to some other profitable crop than are the growers of the southwest. It is evident that infinately more people are Involved on the southwestern forms than on the southwestern farms, In the State of Arkansas, we have an average o one family per 7 acres. In the state of California there is one family per 44.5 acres. What AFBF and western growers seem to overlook is that when one state gets more than present law provides for its 1954 colon allotmen some other stale loses lhat acreage or part of it. Would ret SI Per Cent "We believe that if AFBF recommendations are inacted into law the proposed national reserve of 3 per cent would also be used largely to benefit Western growers for the same reasons that recommendaitons are made to change the present law for allocations of the national allotments of probates. If that be so, then Texas, JTew Mexico, Ari- get 51 per cent of the 1954 national allotment. This would, in effect, be equivalent to taking about 880,000 acres from the Southeast and giving it to the Southwest. "We are insisting that members of our Arkansas delegation In Congress refuse to support AFBF recommendations .to-change, or to circumvent, the present law with •espect ot making allocations of the 854, national allotment to states. Nothing has hapened in cotton >roductlon that was not expected o happen. The Arkansas Farm Bu- eau Federation, the American Farm TRUCE Bureau Federation and congress xpected production to rapidly in- rease in the West. The present law •as enacted with this problem of uaure allocations to states in mind nd due allowances were made. There is nothing really new in the icture, nothing to be alarmed about nd no reason for hasty drastic hange in the law on this point. "The facts indicate that no dange a* to state allocation pro- isions is Justified." Members of the executive com- .ittee present were W. J. Denton, resident; .Wliiam H.

Comments On Senate Rhee said in his statement, "I am informed that some (U. S.I senators have declared the United States could not agree to a mutual security pact." He said it also appeared probable the Senate will adjourn its present session before it could act on such a treaty. Secretary of State John Foster Dulles said in Washington yesterday that it appeared a mutual security pact would not be sent to the Senate, at this session. This would delay at least unti! January Senate confirmation of an agreement. "The more we try to cooperate, Hhee declared bilterly, "the more confused we are getting to be. However, we are still trying to cooperate all we can." Rhee said, m his written answers to newsmen's questions, that the reasons behind the recent heavy Red attacks on ROK forces were twofold: "First, they want to push ahead as far as they .can into territory that is more adavntageous to them, so they will be in a good position to renew their aggression at any time they choose AIR BASE Continued from Fag* I to be a masonry construction, cm story, and contain approximately 2 200 sq. ft.

"Second Psychological Effect the attacks have been launched for psychological effect. They want the world to know it is not they who are tired of this war and warn to end it ... The appearance of victory can be as important as victory ilself Rhee asked: "If the Communists can make such attacks upon us without in any way disturbing the arrangement for a truce, how much aggression will we have to endure after the truce is signed? "This is a question that must be answered "We have done our part to show pur willingness to cooperate with he United States and postponed determination to get the Chilese Red troops out of Korea before the signing of an armistice." He continued: "But this was a conditional agreement. D the United Nations does not consider our desire for survival, we cannot regard the understanding as binding or. us." Before Rhee made his statement, the Communist Pelplng radio said the ROK President was contemplating statements that would nullify Allied assurances there would be no time limit on the armistice.
