HONOR DISCOVERER - A new stamp honoring the fifth century of the birth of Amerigo Venpucci, navigator for whom America was" named, has been iMUed by the Italian Pent Office. Maaip feature* a IMteacse of Vespucci and 18 worth 60 lire 1 SAN JOSE, Costa Rica (AP) — Inter-American observers arranged an urgent flight to Nicaragua today in an effort to get some 200 stubborn rebels against Costa Rica's government out of the neutral zone along the Costa Rican- Nicaragua border. The five-nation peace commission of the Organization of Americas States (OAS) scheduled a 3%hour conference In Managua with Nicaraguan President Anastaslo Somoza. The commission was expected to broach a plan to lift the neutrality of the bufer zone, 19 miles long and six miles wide, to let Costa Rican troops go In after the rebels. Lifting of the zone's neutrality would also permit the four fighter planes sold by the United States to Costa Rica to go Into action against the rebel remnants. This could have a decisive effect but could also enrage Nicaragua, whose charge that the fighters had violated her territory was followed by establishment of the ' buffer strip. 200 There'' OAS observers reported that 200 or more rebels, driven from their bases in northwest Costa Rica, were in the neutral area. Except for stragglers who filtered into the zone to join them, there appeared to be no other activity in the revolt launched against the Costa Rican government two weeks ago. Under the buffer plan accepted last Thursday by both Costa Rica and Nicaragua, the commission's consent would be necessary for Costa Rican orces to move into the zone. The commission conferred all day yesterday and into the night. Costa Rica's President, Jose Pigueres, talked with the group for near 90 minutes. Later Pigueres In a radio broadcast said, "It is not yet time to rejoice; armed forces are in the demilitarized zone and they could launch an attack." Earlier yesterday, scores of Costa Rican soldiers back from the front staged an impromptu victory parade throughout the capital. Kinningham Is Named Delegate Charles A. Kinningham, Blytheville and a student at Mississippi State College, has been named as one of two delegates to attend the Southern Regional Collegiate Convention of the Southern Agricultural Convention in Louisville on Feb. 7. Mr. Kinningham will present a paper on "Research Done on Pon- setta Stock Plants." He will represent the State College chapter of the American Society of Horticulture Scientists. Travel Time FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. W — Editors of the high school student newspaper don't think their parents had it so rough if they did have to ride horseback or walk miles to school. They noted that pupils living in Sedona, 30 miles awaay, travel 43,200 miles by. bus going back and forth to school for four years. DEFENSE (Continued from Page 1) today for approval of American help in redeveloping: Nationalist forces, now garrisoning islands stretching for 350 miles along the Communist coast. Likeliest candidates for evacuation are the Tachen Islands 200 miles north of Formosa, where a protective' outpost island, Ykiang- shan, was taken by the Reds last week. A high Nationalist official said here the Reds could Invade the Tachens on two hours notice. Agree to Withdrawal The Nationalists agreed, apparently with reluctance, to withdraw troops from the Tachens if President Eisenhower orders the fleet to help In the operation, according to sources informed of details of Pride's conferences here with Chiang. U. S. Ambassador Karl Rankin, and Maj, Gen. William C. Chase, chief of the U. S. Military Assistance Advisory Group here, joined in the talks. Other islands which might be evacuated include the Yu Shan group, 35 miles northeast of the Tachens, Pishan Island 32 miles to the southwest, and other small islands off the coasts of Che- kiang and Fukien provinces. The other side of the coin is a new American commitment—subject to Washington's approval—to help defend such strategic islands as Quemoy, near the Communist city of Amoy at the' south end of the Nationalist screen of outpost islands, Matsu Island dominating the 140 miles northwest of Formosa and 23 miles off the Red coast. Previously, specific American protection has covered only Formosa and the nearby Pescadores. It is assumed that the 1th Fleet would intervene if the Reds should try to take the Tachens before they are evacuated, and that it would go into action in a big way if the Communist should attack an evacuation after it begins. Last night the Nationalists sent four-engine bombers against Yiki- angshan and had fighter-bombers out on another mission, but no details were available. Peiping radio, meanwhile, scotched the Idea of a possible cease-fire by charging in a broadcast heard in Tokyo that the United States was plotting to "interfere in the domestic affairs of China, and that Formosa "would have been Liberated years ago" if it had not been for the 7th Fleet. Japanese Ship Stopped MOJI, Japan </P,i—A Red a rship stopped three Japanese fishing vessels 80 miles southeast of Shanghai and ordered them out of Chinese waters, the Moji Maritime Board reported today. 'D.e fishing craft were released immediately, apparently in line with Red China's new program of being polite to Japanese seamen. Yes, Measure It!

IKE Continued from Page 1 Pride called it "a very grave move" but said the fleet was at the ready and could cope with any eventuality. Some Moving Now A Taipeh dispatch reported some civilians are already being moved from the Tachens to Formosa. It said about 315 children were in the first movement and were due to arrive at Formosa tomorrow. There was no word whether the U. S. navy had any part in this movement. Elsenhower noted that the 7th Fleet was directed in 1950, when the Korean fighting broke out, to defend Formosa against any Communist attack. He said the reasons for that move are still valid, and told the Congress: "What we are now seeking is primarily to clarify present policy and to unite in its application. We are not establishing a new policy. Consequently, , my recommendations do not call for an increase in the armed forces of the United States or any acceleration in military procurement or levels of defense production. If any unforeseen emergency arises requiring any change, I will communicate with the Congress. I hope, however, that the effect of an appropriate congressional resolution will be to calm the situation rather than to create further conflict." Slingshot Marksman SAN DIEGO, Calif, tf) — It is no idle boast when Marine Master Sgt. Frank O. Freeman tells recruits here at pistol practice that he could do better with a sling shot.

Water is free, yet someone has fixed a dollar and cents value on nature's unpriceable gift. By what right? Go out into the country and you'll find the farmer getting all the water he wants, merely for the effort of digging a well and working a pump. He gets no water bill. Go up into the unspoiled mountains, dip your cup in a bubbling spring and drink your fill. Bring home a few barrels full. No one will impose any charge for what you take. Go down to the nearest river bank. Fill as many buckets as you can haul away. You won't have to pay a cent for their contents. Or the next time it rains, pu( out tubs and basins. Or do as they do in Bermuda: make your entire roof a collecting system leading to a cistern. No meter will register payments due. But ask the farmer what it cost to dig his well and how much energy is consumed in operating it. Figure the expense of your trip to the mountains, not forgetting the price of the barrels. Compute the value of the time consumed in hauling river water, adding the doctor's bills in case you fail to boil it before using. And compare the amount of water you obtain with the cost of installing and maintaining a Bermuda-type roof collection system. Water is free to all. But it isn't always available where people want it in a condition safe for them to use. It's the water works' job to take over the task of collecting water, transporting water and making sure that the water delivered is safe for human consumption and suitable for human use, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. And that't what you pay for when you pay your water bill. Blytheville Water Co.
