PAW BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS TUESDAY, JANUARY 11, Dem, GOP Leaders Predict Okay for Ike's Trade Plan \VASHINGTON (AP) — Democratic and Republican congressional leaders joined today in forecasting early approval of President Eisenhower's program to help spur free world trade by lowering U. S. tariffs. ' + In a special message yesterday, Eisenhower renewed proposals he first made last year for a three- year extension of the Reciprocal Trade Agreements Act with power to cut tariffs another 15 per cent. He also called for measures to stimulate investment of U.S. capital abroad, largely through tax concessions; to simplify customs regulations; to furnish more tech- Commodity And Stock Markets- New York Cotton <t*:M «MtaK»i) 3455 3458 3452 3488 3489 3482 3505 3505 3500 3499 3499 3487 3503 33503 3492 Mar May July Oct Dec New Orleans Cotton Mar May July Oct Dec 3455 3489 3508 3502 3505 3458 3490 3508 3502 3506 3451 3483 3501 3490 3493 3500 3487 3492 3451 3483 3501 3490 3493 Chicago Soybeans 27B>/ 2 281 'A 275!/ 4 277% 275'/ 2 27T/4 2731/4 274'A Jan .

Rep. Cooper (D-Tenn), incoming dhairman of the House Ways and Means Committee and chief sponsor of a bill to implement the President's proposals, announced hearings would start next Monday. Indications were the trade bill might be the first major legislation passed by the new Democratic controlled Congress. Hearing Soon Sen. Byrd (D-Va), who will head the Senate Finance Committee, said his group would hold hearings as soon as the House acts. He said he generaly favored the recommendations, although he was not ready to endorse all details. Another expression of support came from Sen. George <D-Ga), senior Democrat on the Finance Committee. But vigorous opposition was assured from the three senior Republicans on the ways and means group — Representatives Reed of New York, Jenkins of Ohio and Simpson of Pennsylvania — and 'rom Sen. Millikin (R-Colo), senior GOP. member of the Finance Committee. Some opponents said privately they would be able to make the fight much closer than is generally expected, but they did not claim they could defeat the program. House Speaker Rayburn tD-Tex.) said he would be willing to go even farther than (he President asks and vote, a permanent reciprocal trade law. Rep. Haileck (R-Ind). assistant House Republican leader, said he thought the program would be enacted "substantially as recommended" and that "a good majority" of Republicans would be for it. Will Cooperate House Republican Leader Martin of Massachusetts said he was certain Congress would cooperate with the President on the program. Several democrats said privately that if congress approves the Eisenhower trade program — as they expect — it would show that on some issues the Democrats will give the President more support than he could get from his o\vn Republican party. The Republican-controlled Congress took no action on Eisenhower's trade proposals last year a-<l, in the end. he settled for a one-year extension of the law with no additional tariff-cutting authority. The Reciprocal Trade Act — written into law 20 years ago under a Democratic administration—permits the President to lower tariffs on imports in return for foreign trade concessions for American products.

Aiken (R-Vt) said today the government's stock of about seven billion dollars worth of larm commodities should begin to shrink steadily after reaching a peak this spring. Aiken, retiring chairman of the Senate Agriculture. Committee, said this would result from two factors: 1. President Eisenhower's farm program, which may bring lower price supports on some farm commodities starting this year plus acreage restrictions voted by farmers themselves on major crops. 2. The success — "far exceeding expectations," Aiken said — of the new plan for disposing of the nation's big farm surplus "abroad. The President reported to Congress yesterday that negotiations have been completed or are under way for disposing of 578 million dollars of such susplus to foreign nations.

Nor did he say how he proposed to replace the half million or so which would be lost if the poll tax should be abolished. In a discussion of the welfare situation, Paubus' prepared text, using language reminiscent of last summer's bitter 'campaign oratory, said; "Already action has been taken to remove 20,000 disabled, deserving: old people from subjection to the third-degree methods they have endured during the past administration." During the, campaign Faubus charged that welfare investigators subjected clients to unnecessary harassment. "I ask," Paubus said in today's speech, "that there be a relaxation of welfare provisions which penalize those provident persons who undertake to help themselves. Those older people who are able should be encouraged to grow gardens, have a cow and some chickens and work at odd jobs to augment the limited grants now available. They must not be forced to Sit idle when they cannot exist on the amount the state is able to pay." Rolls Should Decrease Faubus declared that '"as the social security program expands, the rolls of the State Welfare Depart- "inent should decrease, and if our present revenues are maintained, an increase in amount of aid should be possible." Paubus made an anticipated recommendation for a revision of the present law which permits a public utility to institute a rate increase immediately by posting a bond to insure possible refunds. This hiw was a point of contention in the governor's campaign. "I suggest," Paubus said, "that! a period of 90 or 120 days be es- j tablislied before 1 any application for! rate increases become operative, j "If, within the specified period, ! hearings are not concluded and! rate issues resolved, then, within I the judgement of the Public Ser-1 vice Commission, the applicant! may institute a revised rate .struc-! ture, provided, specifically, that if' any increase is ordered prior to ; final adjudication, proper bond be posted to insure refunds in event' the rate increases are denied or modified." i Of the Fiscal Code, Paubus declared, those sections, "which have been challenged have been declared Unconstitutional, either by opinions of the attorney general or decisions of the Supreme Court, should be changed." Sen. Smith Asks Blockade to Seek Freedom of Fliers Wants U. S., Allies To Join in Effort* Against Red China By JACK BELL * WASHINGTON, UPJ—S.en.,H. Alexander Smith (R-NJ) proposed today that the United States ask its allies to join in a blockade of Red China if United Nations efforts fail to gain the release of American airmen imprisoned there as "spies." U.N. Secretary General Dag Hammarskjold yesterday ended a series of talks in Peiping with Red China's Premier Chou En-lai, but a join communique issued at U.N. headquarters in New York, gave no hint whether the 11 U.S. airmen would be freed. However, the com- munique described the secret talks as "useful" and this prompted speculation that Hammarskjold may have met with some success. Smith, retiring chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Far- Eastern subcommittee, said in an interview he would oppose any "trade" which the Communists could use for propaganda purposes. '•If our men are not released, we should ask our allies to join us in a blockade of the China coast," he said. "I believe to squeeze them economically would be the best sanction to apply. I know it would be dangerous, but we must take some calculated risks." Senate Republican Leader Knowland of California, who has differed in the past with President Eisenhower and Secretary of State Dulles on some aspects of foreign policy, has renewed his proposal that the United States clap : a blockade on China to obtain release of Americans held there, regardless of whether other friendly nations join in. Smith said, however, he oelieves that to make such a blockade effective, this country would have to have the support of England. He said he doubted that Russia would furnish convoys for ships sailing for Chinese Communist ports. "I don't think the Communists want to precipitate any fighting now." he declared. Eisenhower and Dulles have indicated opposition to any blockade at this time, primarily on grounds that it could be regarded as an act of war. Smith, who usually supports Dulles' policies, is known to have urged the secretary of state to be "OSdat40,50,6Q?" - Man, You're Crazy Forget your aRt-! Thousands arc peppy at TO.

Byrd By JOE HALL WASHINGTON (£)—A new policy by the Democratic .Senate leadership appeared likely today to^remove Sen. Byrd (D-Va) from the chairmanship of the spending watchdog cqmmittee he has headed in all its '14 years. This is the Senate-House Committee on Reduction on Nonassentinl Federal Ependiturs, firste st up in 1941 and known around the capitol simply as "the Byrd committee." The Democratic Steering Committee yesterday announced it was asking that no Democrat hold two committee chairmanships. In the past, one man has been permitted to head one of the regular legislative committees and a special committee such as the Byrd group. Byrd will be Finance Committee chairman this year, the first major standing committee he has headed in his 22 years in the Senate. Thus.he would not be able to head the watchdog committee under the new policy. Byrd said he had not decided what to do about this. But a source close to him said he would tender his resignation as chairman of the watchdog committee. If it Is accepted, his successor probably would be Rep. Cannon of Missouri, senior House Democrat on the group. A veteran Democratic senator said the new policy was not aimed at Byrd, but was devised for harmony purposes by Majority Leader Lyndon B. Johnson (D-Texj. The Democratic steering group completed its committee assignments yesterday,, managing to give plums to two veterans who are now "freshmen" —.Senators Barkley of Kentucky and O'Mahoney of Wyoming—and also to Sen. Morse (Ind-Ore). Barkley got the two major committee posts he held—foreign relations and finance—before he left the Senate in 1949 to become vice president. O'Mahoney was assigned to interior, of which he formerly was chairman, and to the Judiciary Committee. Morse, whose vote makes possible Democratic control of the Senate, was given the foreign relations spot he long has wanted. He also was put on another major committee, banking, and kept on ready with a plan or action if Ham- marskjold returns from Peiping empty handed. The U.N. secretary general is expected back in New York Saturday. The State Department said it would have no comment unti' Hammarskjold files his report.
