BLTTHEVILLB (ARK.)' COURIER HBWi MONDAY, JANUARY tf, IBM Coundlmen, Mayor Comment on Sewers in 55 Continued from fife 1 I «aliae that it is up to the City Council and the Mayor to g'lvt «* people what they asked for in the election on May 18, 1954. KEMPER BRUTON — My primary objective for running for •lactlon was to see that the sewer system was started as quickly a«. possible. I Seel we should hire the best possible engineering firm to de- 4gB «nd supervise the construction of the system. Streets, traffic control, garbage disposal, sidewalks and more industries are other items in which I have great interest and in wtoiob I wiH ask your support. to get all the signatures that are necessary to form that district. If you will recall, I was one who firat started the question about the sewage in Blytheville, Arkansas. I am happy to tell you that I Was one who was responsible for getting Black and Veach of Kansas City, Missouri, to come in here and make a study of our sewer system so you can readily see the way I feel about the sewer question. JESSE WHITE — I will support the plan voted by Blytheville citizens last spring, and as soon as the southern improvement district is organized, I will be prepared to vote for the sale of bonds to permit construction to begin. RUPERT CRAFTO.V — In answer to your letter, I am happy to let you know how I stand on the sewer question. In answer to your question, to what I might be able to do about the sewer in 1955, personally I was ready to start the morning after the election to build the sewer system for Blytheville. However, if you will recall we had an ordinance saying that alt Btytheville would be sewered before any sewer systems were built. The reason for delay is that the south district has not all been signed. I will go on record to amend the ordinance if we are unable TOI/EB BUCHANAN — I have In the past and still will support the sewer plan endorsed by the voters last spring. We have dillydallied too long on this issue and'if necessary, I would favor an amendment to last summer's plan, eliminating the southern improvement district. The delay in getting this district organized has been the stumbling block for several months in the overall system. I am ready to do whatever is necessary as an alderman to get our sewer plan in operation at once. Soviet to Give Friends A-Knowledge MOSCOW Ufl — The Soviet Union announced today it is turning over atomic know-how and fissionable materials for peaceful use to Communist China, East Germany.

It was the third such press conference in four days. At one conference Friday the Soviets offered to share with the rest of the world experience they claimed to have gained by operating an industrial atomic power plant. Conference Suggested On Saturday the Russians suggested another Big Pour conference be held on German reunification. Today's announcement said in return for scientific and technical aid to be given her Communist allies, the Soviet Union would expect to receive a continuing supply of atomic raw materials from them. The announcement added that all atomic aid to be given to the other Communist countries would be used for peaceful purposes and that experimental atomic piles given to them would be limited to that required to produce 5,000 kilowatts of electric power each. The Soviets last week offered to share their findings on use of atomic energy for production of electric power through the United Nations and said it would reveal this information at the scientific congress on peaceful uses of atomic energy which the U.N. General Assembly is to sponsor later this year. Secret Talks (The United States has been conferring secretly with Russia in an effort to get her to join in a world pool of atomic energy information and material for peaceful purposes. The Americans also have been negotiating on the pool with FAU6US (Continued from Page 1) that he wasn't proposing any. Faubus made the statements at a routine morning news conference. He said that he would sign the bill repealing the relative responsibility law if it passed in the Legislature. "The provisions in it (the relative responsibility law) that I do not like are those that compel a person to sue a relative at times in order to get consideration," he said. Faubus said that some old people were afraid to do anything for themselves for fear that they would be cut off the relief rolls. He said that he believed that people who could partially support themselves .should be alowed to do whatever they could and still receive a certain amount of support. During the primaries last summer, Faubus attacked present Welfare Commission policies. However he said that today announcement was the first time he had said directly that he would sign the repeal bill if passed. 16.50-17.50; 270-300 Ib 16.00-50; 130; 150 Ib 16.75-17.75; sows 400 Ib down 15.25-16.00, mostly 15.75 down, heavier sows 13.50-15.00.

Moscow's offer of last Friday was viewed in the West as the Kremlin's effort to counter the effects of President Eisenhower's widely hailed plan.) Today's announcement came as U.N. Secretary General Dag Ham- marskjold and atom e xperts of eight countries — including Russia —gathered at U.N. headquarters in New York for conferences to set up the scientific congress next summer. The announcement said, "The question is under discussion concerning extending the number of countries to which the U.S.S.R. will be in a position to grant aid in development of scientific experimental work in the field of peaceful use 1 of atomic energy." DEFENSE (Continued from Page 1) atomic subs to seven. There was new stress too on guided missiles. The budget earmarked 675 million dollars for guided missiles net year against 519 millions estimated for the current year. . A fifth supercarrier of the 60,000- ton Forrestal class was recommended. These new weapons spell still greater firepower for the armed forces and, in turn, less manpower. Eisenhower restated the manpower cutback program: to reduce from a present force of about 3,200*000 to about 3,000,000 by net June 30 and "something over 2,800,000" by June 1956. The Pentagon explained this meant that by June 1956 the Army would have 1,027,000 men, the Navy 657,000, the Marine Corps 193,000 and the Air Force 975.000. Only the Air Force would add men. A Pentagon official said the Army now consists of 19 divisions, 18 regimental combat teams and 117 . antiaircraft battalions and said without giving details that the composition of the army's unit strength "will be different at the end of the year." The Navy will operate a "little over" 1,000. ships, of which about 406 will be combat types. This compares with about 1,100 now in commission. The cutback will be entirely in noncombat categories. The Marine Corps will continue with three ground divisions and three wings of planes, as in the present year, although with 12,000 less men. The President wrote that- the active aircraft inventory for the Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps would increase from about 34,000 last June to 36,000 in June 1956 Farmer Co-Op Membership Now 71 Million WASHINGTON (/P) — The Agriculture Department said today membership in farmer cooperatives in this country has climbed to a record of 7^ million, or nearly double that of 10 years a?o. The number of individual cooperatives was reported at 10,114. They were said to have transacted business valued at 9'^ billion dollars during the 1952-53 fiscal year, the last full year for which complete information is available. Products sold for farmers who were members of cooperatives had a net value of 57.400,000,000.

The president recommended a total of $50,885,000 for the lower Mississippi River, compared with $45,450,000 voted last'year. This includes some 21 milion for levees and hank stabilization on the Mississippi River. It also includes previously mentioned funds for the St. Francis, White, lower Arkansas and Boeuf rivers. The budget ulso includes a recommendation of five million dollars for planning future projects. There was no breakdown on this fund but Arkansas members of Congress were hopeful it would include money to start planning the proposed Greers Ferry and Beaver Dam projects in northern Arkansas. These two projects were authorized last year. President Eisenhower told Congress that he favors granting funds to the Army Engineers to finance the federal government's share of 'partnership" projects — projects where local interests finance part of a project, such as the power features of a dam. He said he was recommending 10 million for such work, chiefly in the Pacific Northwest. However, the president added that "provision will be made for' cooperation in authorized partnership projects such as Markham Ferry in Oklahoma when satisfactory arrangements have been completed." Markham Ferry is on the Arkansas River system. EISENHOWER (Continued from Page 1) billions more than either of the other services.
