f ACM TWELVE BLTTHEVILLB (ABK.) COURIER NEWS MONDAY, JANUARY M, 19BB Arkansas in Washington Depot Would Benefit State; Senators to Get Magazine Space; Osceola's Billy Is Quick By GORDON BROWN WASHINGTON (AP)—Rep. Mills (D-Ark) has drafted and introduced a bill which, if passed, will be of considerable benefit to Arkansas' manganese area. The measure would require the General Services Administration, which has charge of buying and stockpiling manganese and other strategic materials, to establish a manganese depot to serve Arkansas. While the bill doesn't say "Arkansas" in just that way, it calls for a depot to serve the "Ozark- Commodity And Stock Markets- New York Cotton (12:31 QiiotaUras) jlar 3417 3477 3469 May 3506 3507 3500 July 3528 3523 3521 Oct 3525 3532 3523 Dec 3531 3535 3525 New Orleans Cotton Mar 3473 3475 3469 May 3505 350T 3501 July 3528 3529 3524 Oct 3528 3531 3524 Dec 3530 3532 3527 3469 3500 3521 3523 3526 3469 3502 3524 3526 3527 Chicago Soybeans Men ... 283 283i/ 4 280% May ... 278'/ z 218','s 276',i July ... 275'i 275'<, 273'/ 2 Sept ... 275'/ 4 275',' 2 273!' 2 Chicago Corn Mch ... 155% 155'4 154V 8 May ... 157i/ z 157% 157M, Chicago Wheat Mch ... 231% 231% 229", May ... 229 229 V, 227% New York Stocks A T and T Amer Tobacco Anaconda Copper Beth Steel Chrysler Coca-Cola Qen Electric Gen Motors Montgomery Ward N Y Central Int Harvester Republic Steel Radio Socony Vacuum Stud-Pak Standard of N J Texas Corp Sears U S Steel 28U/1 276:14 273% 273% 154 228 172 1-2 68 1-4 53 1-8 118 1-2 67 1-4 Cushman" area and that, mills explains, means Independence County, Ark. The bill also would extend the present manganese purchase and stockpiling program through June 30, 1963. Importance of a depot to Arkansas, Mills explains, is this: Under 'the present government purchase program, ore containing 40 per cent or more manganese can be sold to OSA in carload lots at any railroad siding. Ore with lower content must be delivered to a government depot. None Handy Since the Arkansas manganese ore is low grade, it must, be delivered to a depot — and there is none handy. Mills' bill would authorize the depot, along with a similar one to serve the Virginia manganese area, to purchase up to 15 million units of manganese in the period ending June 30, 1963. A unit is 22.4 pounds of metallic manganese. BOTH ARKANSAS senators are to be featured soon in national magazines.

It called for an underwriting fund of 25 million dollars. Eisenhower also: 1. Called for provision of medical care for persons in the United States who now are receiving public assistance '• under state programs aided by federal grants. The President said there are nearly five million such persons, and that present arrangements for their medical care "are far from adequate." He recommended separate federal matching of state and local expenditures for the medical care of public assistance recipients. 2.

Asked for an increase in the U.S. contribution to the World Health Organization. The President said "for half of mankind, disease and disability are a normal condition of life." and added "this incalculable burden not only causes poverty and distress, and impedes economic development, but provides a fertile field for the spread of communism." Eisenhower Kave no details of his health reinsurance program, but it presumably is similar to the one he advocated last year. Under it, Congress would put up a capital fund, but it \vould involve no outright expenditures of federal cash. The money would be used to encourage private companies to expand their programs. "The purpose of the reinsurance program." Eisenhower said, "is to and photographer spend a day with Sen. McClellan. In its Feb. 18 issue it plans to feature "A Day with Sen. McClellan." The reporter and photographer followed his activities throughout the day. Two Washington reporters are collecting material on Sen. Pul- bright for an article to appear in Harper's. BILLY WALTERS of Osceola, Ark., who became a Senate page this year by appointment of Sen. McClellan, is fleet of foot and quick of mind. The other day a senator dispatched Billy with a statement for a reporter in the House press gallery. Billy delivered it in a couple of minutes. The reporter, accustomed to waiting 20-30 minutes in such instances, exclaimed at the speed. "Why," drawled Billy, "I'd have been here quicker if they didn't make me wear these shoes." And quick as a flash he was gone. Billy is a son of Mrs. L. W. Walters, Osceola. JOHN H. SIMPSON and George E. Pike, both of DeWitt, and Byron Jessup of Stuttgart were in Wash- ington last week seeking an increased rice acreage allotment for Arkansas County. As a result of their work, Sen. Fulbright drafted a bill to Insure that the county would get as much acreage as it had in 1350 — which would be a hike of around 5,000 acres if the bill gets through. REP.

McClellan, has been named senate bill clerk Roscoe Brown, Jonesboro, is a new Senate doorkeeper through appointment by McClellan blin (Red) Cavness. Bentonville, who served four years as captain of the Capitol Police and then lost out when Republicans took over Congress in 1952, is slated for a better Capitol Hill job. For the past tw years he has been a Senate doorkeeper. Cavness was highly rated as police captain but th post is compardatively low ag — ,200 a, year Rep.

Then I knew I wouldn't be able to make it. It was dark below, but I had no choice." Thus Capt. Edward Kuhn, pilot, told of his decision to crash-land an airliner with 41 persons aboard into a farmer's bean field early yesterday. None of the five crew members or 36 passengers, all military personnel, were injured. The Southeast Airlines' twin-en- jine C46 was chartered to fly the 36 soldiers from Camp Kilmer, N.J.. to Ft. Ord, Calif., and the Oakland, Calif., Army base. Kuhn, 30, of Miami Springs. Fla., former Air Force combat jet pilot, said the plane developed engine trouble near Bloomington, HI., bout 180 miles southwest of Chicago. He turned back toward Chicago, he said, but with the one engine out he gradually lost altitude until he was down to 100 feet. He decided to belly-land, without wheels. "All the odds are against you when you come down nowhere in the middle of the night like that," he said. The plane skidded 500 feet to a safe stop in the snow. Damage to the craft was minor. The area is dotted with hills and rough strip mine fields. Kuhn walked the mile to Coal City for aid. The soldiers were re- furnish a system for broad sharing among health insurance organizations of the risks of experimentation .A system of this sort will give an incentive for the improvement of existing health insurance plans. • 'It. will encourage private, voluntary health insurance organizations to provide better protection— particularly against expensive illness—for those who are now insured against some of the financial hazard of Illness. Reinsurance will also help to stimulate extension of private voluntary health insurance plans to millions of additional people who do not now have, but wh< could afford to purchase, heal! insurance." turned to Chicago by bus and later boarded another charter flight to the West Coast. U.N. (Continued from Page 1) Tachens, Matsu and Quemoy but of Formosa itself and the Pescadores Islands, which United States has pledged to protect. Propaganda Move The United States called the Soviet demand a propaganda move designed to confuse and divert serious efforts to halt the fighting, which included new Communist firebombing of the Tachens yesterday. More than four years ago the Security Council defeated an almost identical resolution. A dispute over including the Soviet resolution on the agenda under its title language of "U. S. Acts of Aggression Against the Chinese People's Republic in the Taiwan (Formosa) Area and Other Islands of China" threatened to delay the Council in its majority aim of getting off an invitation to Red China to send representatives here for the Formosa debate. The U.N. Charter requires both sides in a dispute be invited to be represented. If Red China does send spokesmen, he will not have a vote. Sir Leslie Munro, New Zealand ambassador and Security Council president for January—Peru's Victor A. Belaunde takes over tomorrow in alphabetical succession — prepared today's agenda containing only the item agreed on by the Western powers. It was entitled "Question of Hostilities in the Area of Certain Islands off the Coast of the Main land of China." Munro told reporters it was intended to stop fighting in the islands from the Tachen? Negro Is Held For Car Theft And Burglary By SONNY SANDERS CARUTHERSVILLE — Abraham GiHispie, 34-year-old Wardell Negro, has been charged with car tlieft and burglary and larceny. He is being held in the county jail here. A statement made by Gillespie revealed the following information, according to officers at the Sheriff's office: Gillespie, who said he was born in Osceola, Ark., stole a 1949 Ford coach, owned by Mrs, Mack Patterson of Warden, at 7:15 Saturday night. He drove to Fortageville, picked up another Negro and told him that the car belonged to his cousin. (The other man's name is being withheld by officers in the belief he not implicated.) He drove the car into a ditch at the intersection of U. S. Highway 61 and Route T, three miles south of Portageville. Trooper Ed Kelsey of the Missouri Highway Patrol was patroling the area and stopped upon seeing the accident, which caused about $60 damage (o the car. He asked the five Negroes which one was driving the car and Gil lespie ran away by way of a cotton patch. The other Negro that had been in the car with Gillespie told the patrolman Gillespie's name. Gillespie broke into a grocery store, the first one south of Portageville, about one mile south of that city. He took about 25 carton of cigarettes, ?15 worth of various meat, 10 dozen pairs of sox, eight or nine boxes of shotgun shells, three pairs of gloves, three flashlights. (A pistol was. also reported missing, but Gillespie said he did not steal one.) He hid all but nine cartons of cigarettes in a bean field across the road from the store. He walked across fields and back roads for five miles and reached Wardell at. 10 p. m. At 3 a. m. Sunday night watchmen at the Citizens' Gin, J. C. Clayton and G. W. Goldtharpe, stopped Gillespie and notified City Marshall Mitchell Hogan. St. Louis High Schools Integrate ST. LOUIS (IP) —Segregation ended quietly today in St. Kouis public high schools. . At Spldan-Blewett high school in the city's West End about 350 Negroes registered for the spring semester. About 1,000 whites also registered at the previously all-white school. Two previously all-Negro high schools remained that way because no white children live near them. A handful of Negroes registered at each of five other white high schools, located in almost all-white neighborhoods, to and including Quemoy but did not deal with Formosa and the Pescadores. They were not included, he satd, the hostilities were in the other islands. FEAR Any Cough When a cough starts begin using Creomulsion quick for soothing, relaxing, phlegm loosening help.

CREGMULSSON relieves Coughs, Chest Colds, Acute Bronchitis Three Slain in Robbery Ambush MOUNT PLEASANT. Term. UK— Charred evidence indicated today Mr. and* Mrs. Dudley Moore and their guest walked one at. a time into a dead-shot ambush Saturday night. Bach had bullet holes in the face or head. The three bodies were sprawled in the charred living room of the Moores' home, a scant two steps from the front door. Police said the motive probably was robbery. As police chief Clare McAfee figured it, this much could be assumed: First came the guest, a jovial bachelor farmer, James Copper, 47, Who customarily watched wrestling on television with the Moores on Saturday nights. He arrived at Moore's hardware store a little before closing time and then'went on to the house to wait for the Moores there. About 45 minutes later Moore drove up, let his wife out at the front door, then put his pickup truck in the garage at the rear while she went in. A little later some boys saw flames flickering inside and notified the fire department. Firemen put out the blaze but did not know anyone was in the house until they forced open the front door and stumbled over the bodies. Moore, 56, had two pistol bullet holes — apparently of .32-caliber size — in his head, and Mrs. Moore, 53, and Cooper each had one. All had on outdoor clothing. A coroner's jury said they were murdered. Police found no pistol, no stray bullets, no bloodstains. Fire Chief J. E. Hardison said there was no evidence of arson, "but to catch as fast as it did, it had to be set." After a check of the store's re- U.S. celpts, Homer Copcland, assistant I probably were carrying WOO la police chief, said the Moores |?600.

"Prom fiscal year 1953 (starting July 1. 1952) through fiscal year 1856 Army expenditures are being reduced from $16,200.000.000 to an estimated $8,900,000,000," Stevens added. "Even with the end of the Korean War this represents 76 per cent of the total Department of Defense savings for the same period. "I feel that the Army as the ground member of the defense team is making every attempt to utilize its manpower and its funds in the most practical and efficicnl manner available to it."
