The defense the Lattimore case has contended the accusation was too vague to define an offense and permit preparation of a defense. The charge which Youngdflhl threw out was returned by a federal grand jury last October. The two-count indictment, in effect, replaced the key count of a December 1952 indictment. Youngdahl had dismissed that count in May 1953, and was upheld by the U. S. Court of Appeals here. Subject to Appeal Dismissal of the new Indictment is subject to appeal by the government. The government took that course when Youngdahl dismissed four of the seven counts of the original indictment. The Court of Appeals restored t\vo of the counts which Youiig- dal had dismissed, but agreed with him on the main charge. In throwing out the new charge Youngdahl said: "The court cannot escape the conclusion that 'follower of the Communist line' is not a phrase with a meaning about which men of ordinary intellect could agree, nor one which could be used with mutual understanding by a questioner and answerer unless it were defined at the time it were sought and offered as testimony. "The count, even with its apparent definition, is an open invitation to the jury to substitute, by conjecture, their understanding of the phrase for that of the defendant. The meaning of such a phrase varies according to a par- :icular individual's political philo- iophy. "To ask 12 jurors to agree and then decide that the definition of the Communist line found in the ndictment is the definition that the defendant had in mind and denied believing in is to ask the jury to aspire to levels of insight to which the ordinary person is incapable, and upon which speculation no criminal indictment should hinge." 28.00; high good and choice steers 24.00-26.50; good 21.00-22.00; choice steers and heifers 27.00; good and choice 20.00-25.00; cows utility and commercial steady at 10.00-12.25; utility and commercial bulls 12.5014.00; canner and cutter bulls 9.0012.00; good and choice vealers 23.00-30.00; tew prime 32.00; commercial and low good 16.00-22.00 Kennett Woman Seeks Court Action Against 'Santa Clous' KENNETT, Mo. WV — A pretty 23-year-old mother says her estranged husband got into her home by disguising himself as. Santa Glaus — and she wants him cited for contempt of court. Mrs. Betty Lou Van Bibber, of Memphis, in a circuit court motion, said the action violated a restraining order issued to bar him from "disturbing" her. She is suing for divorce. It happened last Christmas Eve, said Mrs. Van Bibber, and her husband cited the resultant uproar in obtaining a $1,000 peace bom against her in Memphis last week In the Memphis hearing, a wit ness testified Mrs. Van Bibber plainly irritated at finding Santa was really T. H. Van Bibber snatched off his false beard am chased him out of the house. Van Bibber, 45, who operates supermarket at nearby Maiden Mo., said his wife threatened him with a pistol during the row.

BOARD OF DIRECTORS, Brinkley School District No. 52 of Mississippi County, Arkansas LEWIS BAUGHER, President MANNERING TOWLES, Sec. Mrs. MacTavis.'i gets her dream house At last she has the home of her dreams! A modern house — with a yard for tho children and space for flowers. Most important to Mrs. MacTavish, though, •re all those wonderful electric appliance* the'« always longed for! With them, she'll have the time and energy for the thing! she's .always wanted to do. It seems like luxury at first. But soon •he'll think of all her electric servant* M nece*iitiet. As time go«s on, she'll add (Yen more. Stop and think, for a minute, how many electric servants you've added in the last ten years. Appliances which have made your life easier and more enjoyable. So, even though the price of electricity has gone down in that time, your electric bill may be higher. But when you think of the many things electricity doe« for you, twenty-four hours a day, don't you agree that it is still the biggest bargain in your family budget? • "YOU AN THt»l"-ttS LlivMM-wHnm Mitory'i jr.ol tv.nto Ark-AAo Power Co. The slender former "Sweetheart of Humes High" In Memphis, an air line hostess at the time, said she shot Keil when he accused her of going with other men and threatened torture. The contempt of court motion filed yesterday Was scheduled to be heard Jan. 24 by Dunklin County Circuit Court Judge A. J. Good' Jr. BUDGET Continued from deficit basis?" Byrd said he favors cutting foreign economic aid drastically, but added there is a "lO-billlon-dollar backlog of former appropriations" in this field which Congress could reach only by rescinding previous appropriations. Sen, Douglas (D-I11) said the Republicans campaigned in 1952 on the promise they would balance the budget, reduce taxes and maintain the national defense and had "sold the people a bill of goods." "In practice we have had budget deficits every year and the national defense has not, in my judgment, been maintained^" Douglas said. "The rate of growth 'of the Air Force has been diminished and the total numbers of the Army, Navy and Marines have been cut." Senators Ellender <D-La) and Dworshak (R-Idaho) said they are going to work within the Senate Appropriations Committee to do What they can to pare down the foreign outlays, of which $3,675,000,000 would be in military' aid and $1,025,000,000 in economic assistance. The military budget figures of $15,200,000,000 for the Air Force, 58,850,000,000 for the Army and 39,700,000, lor the Navy already had been anticipated in Congress, where Democrats have said armed service policies are in for a thorough review. The President's failure to recommend any new power units for the Tennessee Valley Authority came under sharp attack, as did his proposed 147-million-dollar cut in natural resource outlays. ASSEMBLY (Continued from Page ers which Yates proposes. Vates' second bill apparently steins from litigation between Arkansas Power & Light Co and the Fanners Electric Co:0pera' live Corp. of Jackson CoutUy over who should serve a certain Newport area. AP&L won. Orgtnally, the section had been assigned to the co-op. After the area was annexed to Newport, the Supreme Court said the territory should be served by AP&L, which held the city's franchise. A bill also designed to give coops a perpetual grant on once-assigned territory was introduced in the 1953 House, but was defeated. The House argued over whether it would set a dangerous precedent if it allowed Joe C. Barrett. Jonesboro attorney, to discuss a proposed water rights bill before the House tomorrow. Despite vigorous protests, the House voted to invite Barrett, who previously had been invited to talk about the measure before the Senate tomorrow afternoon. An effort to transfer the bill to exempt feed, seed and fertilizer from the Agricultural Committee to the revenues and taxation Committee was unsuccessful. The House yesterday received proposals to: Double the present $1,200 biennial salary and five cents a mile travel allowance for legislators. This would change the constitution. Favorable action at the 1956 general election would be necessary. Change tax assessment times and procedures so that taxes would, be collected the same year assessments are made. As much as 21 months may elapse under present law. Provide for income tax exemp- tionsranging from $17,50 up to $35 or more—from the tax after it is computed on the basis of the taxpayer's gross income, rather than for exemptions on. income before the tax is computed as now. Require telephone companies to provide service on demand. •Prohibit the sale of fireworks, except for caps and cap pistols. In the Senate, a resolution ask- ng for a constitutional amendment to abolish the state Land development' Office was introduced. I Sen. Tom Allen of Brinkley, Sen. Gore (D-Tenn) said Eisen- sponsor, of the resolution, said he hower had let the TVA's budget be "prepared and submitted by enemies of the TVA." Sen. Magnuson ' (D-Wash) said the .administration was not recommending any new major project starts "at a time when our power needs years." are doubling every 10 sees no reason to continue the office since the state hasn't assessed a property tax since 1948. His proposal would turn over to the 75 county clerks the duties of the Land Office. If the resolution wins approval of both houses, it will be submitted to a vote of the people.

Qov. Orval Faubus declined comment.

Ml—Man was a full day into the era of nuclear transportation today as the submarine Nautilus, first of n proposed fleet of seven atomic powered undersea craft, remained at sea on her history making builder's trials. A spokesman said these trials ./ere to last 36 hours, and the Nautilus was not expected to return to her berth at the Electric Boat Division of General Dynamics Corp., here until "very late tonight." In man's first successful effort to tame the atom to provide transportation, the . $29,000,000 cigar- shaped giant eased smoothly from ler dock here late yesterday morning under clear skies. ST. JOSEPH ASPIRIN FOR CHILDREN governor and the Highway Commission yesterday, a Joint statement expressing harmony between Faubus and the Commission was issued. The Democrat said that a source high in the Paubus administration said that "Faubus Is not behind the move to remove Miss Lawson, but her activities against him last summer and fall were such that he cannot defend her." The Democrat said that Its Information came from an "anti-administration member of the Legislature." The newspaper's source said that the ouster step Is being taken because Miss Lawson openly supported Democrat Pratt Bemmel against Faubus in the general election. Miss Lawson and the other three members of the present Commission were appointed by former Gov. Francis Cherry and Faubus by law cannot discharge them. A vacancy, left by the expiration of Dan Portis' term a few days ago, will be filled by a Faubus appoin- ee. Miss Lawson was present at the meeting between Faubus and the lighway commissioners yesterday.
