BLTTHEVTLLB (ARK.) COURIER NEWS WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 19i 1MB President Confers With Knowland GOP Senate Leader Declines To Say If Fliers Discussed WASHINGTON (AP) — President Eisenhower and Sen. Knowland (R-Calif) exchanged views over the breakfast table today on "various problems" but the Senate Republican leaders declined to say whether the matter o£ the American fliers imprisoned in Red China came up. Knowland has called the United Nations mission to Peiping to seek release of the fliers a failure, and has declared he sees no conflict between that assertion, and Eisenhower's counsel against "impetuous words" regarding the situation. On leaving the White House Knowland told newsmen that he and the President "had an exchange of views on various problems, both domestic and foreign affairs." H« replied he would "have to let it stand at that" when a reporter asked whether efforts to win release of the airmen had been discussed. "I am not at liberty to discuss details," Knowland said. Asked then if the President called him to the White House or whether he asked to see the President, the senator simply replied that there "WM nothing unusual" about the conference. Not Unusual He noted that as Senate Repub- Commodity And Stock Markets- Ncw York Cotton (12:3* a»t*ti»ii) .. 3448 3453 3448 .. 3480 3485 3480 .. 3501 3505 3499 .. 3478 3498 3478 .. 3486 3503 3486 Mar May July Oct Dec 3450 3483 3503 3490 3498 Ntw Orleans Cotton Mar .

OS' lican leader he has met with Eisenhower at breakfast "from time to time, so this is not an unusual affair." The visit did offer Knowland an opportunity, if he chose to use it, to try to win Eisenhower's support in his opopsition to any major concessions to the Chinese Reds for the airmen's release. He suspects some such concessions may be implied in the negotiations carried on in the Communist capital by Dag Hammarskjold, U.N. secretary general. Hammarskjold confers later the morning with Secretary of State Dulles at a meeting credited in some quarters to Knowland's insistence that the administration look further into details of the U.N. official's recent conversations with Chou En-lai, Red China's Premier and foreign minister. Previously, Hammarskjold reported on his Peiping visit to Henry Cabot. Lodce Jr., American ambassador to the U.N., who said he was "confident" of eventual release of the fliers. On the basis of a second-hand briefing on Chou's statements, Dulles told a news conference yesterday it was too early to say whether Hammarskjold's mission was a success or a failure. Knowland. who ' has said the U.N. official's efforts failed, declared in a Chicago speech Monday that Hammarskjold "favors the admission of Red China into the United Nations." No Bargaining Indicated Eisenhower has not indicated any willingness to bargain with the Communists. But to combat what he obviously believes is likely to become a U.N. move for concessions to the Reds, Knowland was reported ready to tell the President he is convinced nothing short of the free world's abandonment of Asia would satisfy the Peiping regime. Hammarskjold has said that Ohou En-lai mentioned an easing of "tensions" as a prelude to any agreement on the release of the airmen convicted on "spy" charges which the U.S. government has denounced as baseless. To Knowland, any teasing of tensions means to the Reds (1) Admission of Red China to the U.N. (2) Reopening of trade with the West in strategic materials (3) Surrender of Formosa to Red China and (4) Abandonment of the free world's defense line in Asia. Knowland has told friends he does not intend to be bound by what he has termed a sort of "voluntary censorship" on the part of members of Congress in discussing the matter. He seemed to have brushed aside Eisenhower's counsel against "impetuous words or deeds" when he accused the Peiping regime in his Chicago speech of having "killed in cold blood hundreds of Americans, with their hands tied Montgomery Ward .......... 81 J » '• behind their backs, who were their N Y Central ............... 34'i, j i:r;soncrs."

"I will talk with the prosecuting attorney, the judge and the shefiff of any area involved and I also will consult with the superintendent of the penitentiary," Paubus said at a news conference. Faubus said however that he has not, for the moment, adopted a policy of an arbitrary length of furloughs from the penitentiary. Under former Oov. Francis Cherry furloughs were limited to 15 days. In reply to a question about his policies, the governor replied: "I don't want the press to get into the attitude of some of my constituents who expect me to turn the state over in seven days." Faubus turned aside questions on the reported move to oust Miss Willie Lawson of Little Rock from the State Highway Commission. "If the governor's office and the Highway Commission are going to cooperate we have to quit talking about possible areas of disagreement," the governor said. "As far as I'm concerned there won't be any fight between my administration and the Highway Commission." COSTA RICA Continued from Page 1 it had no word of such a move and a telephone call to Limon yesterday brought word that the situation there was normal. Air Cover 5. Despite previous estimates that it would take four to seven days to train Costa Ricnn pilots to operate the four F51 fighter planes delivered to the government Monday by the United States, an announcement said one of the warplanes was expected to go into action today. With the rebel air force reportedly dow n to one P47 fighter, speedy checkout of, the fliers would greatly aid government forces. Government and rebel casualty figures showed a wide divergence. Rebel broadcasts claimed more than 300 government troops have been killed. ASSEMBLY (Continued from Page 1) train mentally retarded children won Senate approval 34-0. One of the bill's authors. Sen. Max .Howell of Little Rock, estimated that two years would be required to get the new instutition into operation, and then an initial appropriation of 350,000 to 5100,000 Would be needed.

(Courier News Photo) OSCEOLA (Continued from Page 1) purchased by the City of Osceola as an industrial site and was later transferred to the firm itself through resale. While tomorrow's dedication ceremonies officially open, the new plant, it is not expected to begin operation for a month or two. Walter C. Staub, who has been associated with Crompton-Shenandoah for a number of years, will manage the new plant. He came to Osceola some time direct construction. Osceola Finishing Company is the latest addition to the Crorhpton family and represents the most recent development in the firm's long series of historical events. One of the oldest names in the textile business, the Crompton story goes all the way back to the year 1807 when a group of Rhode Island men built a stone cotton spinning mill building on the banks of the Pawtuxet River near Providence. This plant was the sixth cotton spinning mill built in New England. Story of Growth And from that meager beginning in the then wilderness of Rhode Island, the Crompton name has grown to one of the. most pop- j ular In the textile and clothing - manufacture business. From cotton spinning, Crompton gradually expanded into the manufacture of CR!'':O and print cloth. And then toward the end of the 19th century it introduced into America, for the first time, the art of manufacturing two "wonderfully new" fabrics — corduroy and velveteen. For many years, s Crompton was the only U. S. manufacturer of these two fabrics. And for many years it was recognized as the top pile fabric producer of the American textile business. The present Crompton Company is a Delaware Corporation with its main office located at the site of the original "Stone Factory," Crompton, West Warwick, Rhode Island. It owns complete control of the various subsidiary organizations: Crompton Richmond Company of New York City, Crompton Highland Mills of Griffin, Georgia; Crompton-Shenandoah Company of Waynesboro, Virginia, Arkansas Arkansas Cotton Mills of Morrilton, Arkansas and Osceola Finishing Co., Inc. In 1915, Crompton Company es- tnblished its own selling organization. This is known as Crompton- Richmond Company, Inc., and has its main office on 6th Avenue, New York City. It has branch offices in many large cities of the United States. All of the goods of the Crompton organizations are disposed of through Crompton-Richmond Company, with the exception of remnants and wastes. In the 1920's, the weaving and finishing of silk and rayon velvets was started at Crompton. That project was eventually trans- Army Tank Sent To Boston Prison Four Rebellious Convicts Still Hold 5 Guards BOSTON Ufl — State police reported today an Army tank Is en route from Fort Devens to Charlestown State Prison where four rebellious convicts hold five guards hostage in the second day of a desperate bid for release. In addition to the five guards, six other convicts, apparently held against their will by the desperadoes, are in an isolated solitary confinement cellblock. Otis M. Whitney, state public safety commissioner and head of the state police, said he ordered the tank sent here. It is from the National Guard detach.-nent at the Army post. Prison officials reported no change in the tense situation this morning. Last night the four convicts warned officials contemplating means of safely breaking the impasse that "for every shot fired at us, a guard dies." SeMo Suspects Are Returned CARUTHERSVILLE- Pemiscot County Chief Deputy Sheriff Clyde Oi'ton returned here last night ' from Chandler, Ariz, where he got two prisoners from the Chandler Police Department. The prisoners, who waived extradition, are James Noel and Isaac Wells, both Caruthersvills Negroes, officers said. Noel is accused of burglary and larceny at the DeWeese Grocery in Hayli around Dec. 1, and Wells is charged with removing and concealing mortgaged property late in 1953. Accompanin^ Orton on the motor trip was Charles Grigory of Caruthersville. They left here early Thursday morning and arrived in Chandler Saturday night. COUNCIL ferred to Waynuesboro and greatly enlarged. In 1948, Crompton Company, purchased, rebuilt, enlarged and re-equipped the cotton mill in Morrilton.
