PAQB BWBT BLYTMEVILLB (ARK.)' COURSES NEWB SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 6,19S8 Legislator* Wonder: Will-Faubus Ask Assembly To Hike Taxes Next Week? By BAY STEPHENS LITTLE ROCK (AP) — Members of the General Assembly went home for a weekend recess with one question on their minds: Will Gov. Orval Faubus ask them to increase state taxes? Faubus will appear before a joint session of the Legislature Monday afternoon, to discus* "financial and school problems." The governor has refused to disclose what recommendations, if any, he will make toward solving these parallel problems. CHINESE (Continued from Page 1) opinion that in the long run Red China probably would like to end the fighting in the Formosa area. But- the key question is whether the Reds want peace now on any terms which Nationalist China and the United States would even seriously consider. Wse of diplomatic channels has long been considered as one possible means of seeking a peaceful settlement, despite a lack of U.S. diplomatic relations with the Red Chinese. One plan given careful consideration at the State .Department would have Red China negotiate through Great Britain, and Nationalist China through the United States. This might not produce any written or formal agreement but might result in a satisfactory arrangement to stop the fighting. Similarly it could be a preliminary to later U.N. talks if the explorations of the diplomats showed that there was some willisgness on both sides to make peace. The state Department let it be known yesterday it is opposed to a general international conference Itfee that held at Geneva last spring and summer when the fighting in Indochina was halted. Press officer -Henry Suydam said he found rt difficult to imagine that anyone who participated in the Geneva conference and heard Red Chinese Premier Chou En-lai assattt tfee U.N. "in the most intemperate and arrogant language" would want to repeat that experience. Congressional leaders also lined up solidly against any Geneva-type conference, but split on whether further steps should be taken through the U.N. Sen. Knowland (R-Colif), Senate minority leader, said any further bid to the Chinese Communists would "stultify" the U.N. and would indicate it was prepared to "crawl and pay tribute" to the Reds. But Chairman Russell (D-Ga) of the Senate Armed Services Committee said in an interview he thinks it is the policy of the Eisenhower administration "to pursue all honorable means through the TJ.N. to obtain a cease-fire," and that he backs that course. That doesn't mean that I am for appeasement," he added. Sen. H. Alexander Smith (R-NJ), who conferred briefly with Lodge, said he thinks there is a possibility the Chinese Communists' may retreat from their rejection and agree to discuss a cease-fire. "I know one thing," Smith said. "we are not going to give away any territory to get a cease-fire." Sen. Bridges (R-NH), chairman of the Senate Republican Policy Committee, agreed the United .,,-,, , fK States should not "participate in manly by poultry growers in noith- u-est Arkansas—is far from popular in the Senate. Many senators contend Arkansas can't afford to lose the revenue which the bill would It generally is admitted by members of the Legislature and by Faubus that Arkansas needs additional revenue If It Is to continue an increase state services. The fact that .Faubus asked the Legislature to hear him Monday points to a strong possibility iha the governor will offer something concrete. But, Faubus won't say whether he'll suggest a specific source of new revenue. One of the governor's closest advisors in the state Senate, veteran Roy Milum of Harrison, says he has no idea what Faubus will propose. Extended Sales Tax Another long-time legislator said he understood that, among other things, Faubus will ask that the sales tax be extended to cover such professional services as performed by barbers, bauticians, doctors and lawyers. The possible effect of the governor's recommendations is open to speculation. During the first three weeks, Faubus' proposals have run into little trouble in the House. The Senate has demonstrated no such loyalty to the administration. A good example was provided yesterday when the Senate refused :o put in committee the administration's bill to exempt livestock and; poultry feed from the two per cent i sales tax. j Administration forces, led by i Sen. Guy H. Jones of Conway, promptly demanded a showdown vote, and lost 14-13. The tax exemption bill, a compromise measure drafted by Rep. Clayton Little of Benton County, passed the House, which earlier had defeated a bill to exempt feed, seed and fertilizer from the tax. When the compromise measure arrived in the Senate yesterday afternoon, the clerk began to drone through the routine procedure necessary to place a bill in a Senate committee for consideration. Sen. Oliver Williams of Sheridan objected, however, to the second reading of the bill, and was upheld by the Senate. A senator who backed Williams said opponents of the bill want i to lie dormant in the Senate until they have had a chance to discuss it over the weekend with the voters. Senate Opposition Seen The maneuver, he added, makes certain no action on the bill will be forthcoming next week, since it cnn't be referred to a committee until Monday. A committee is allowed to keep a bill 10 days without acting on it. If Faubus ssks for an extension of the sales tax to cover professional services he is certain to run into Senate opposition Which will want to know: Why take the tax off poultry and livestock feed, at a considerable loss in revenue, and then seek new money by extending that same levy? The exemption bill — sought pri- any conference which is likely to barter away any more of the free world's territory." Sen. Barkley (D-Ky), a Senate foreign Relations Committee member, said lie doesn't believe that any "genuine effort to compose differences over Formosa could be ignored." But he said he is opposed to bypassing the U.N. and thus "whittling down" its authority. IN THE PROBATE COURT FOR THE CHICKASAWBA DISTRICT OF MISSISSIPPI COUNTY, ARKANSAS IN THE MATTER OP THE ESTATE OF JANE No. 2248 BALLARD, DECEASED Notice of Sale The following described property will be sold in accordance with an Order of the Probate Court for the Chickasawba District of Mississippi County, Arkansas, on February 19,1955, at 10:00 o'clock a. m. at A. R. Ballard residence, Manila, Arkansas. Heal Property North half fN'i) of Lots twenty-five (25) and twenty- six (26) of the C. D. Ashabranner Addition to the City of Manila, Arkansas. Personal Property 1 Living Room Couch, 2 take away. Several others object to failure of poultrymen to assess their chickens for tax purposes. Poultry raisers claim the exem- Uon is absolutely necessary if they are to continue in competition with growers in states which do not collect a sales tax. No one seems lo know what Faubus might suggest as an alternative to the .sales lax extension. The governor has mentioned the possibility of an extension pre - vioiisly, lending credence to reports that IIP will suggest it as a solution to the state's financial ills.

Clarke from Honolulu, was discussing Nationalist infantry problems with the U. S. Military Aid and Assistance group.. Evacuation of the Tachens would bring the United States for the first time directly into China civil war action. It -would take American forces into waters which the Communists consider theirs. No Serious Difference Nationalist spokesmen said there had been no serious difference in U. S. and Nationalist viewpoints. It was hinted that at one time Chiang wanted to hold the Tachens and asked for torpedo boats and enough airplanes to aid in their defense and to protect supply ships. He didn't necessarily want Americans manning the boats and planes. However, the source indicated that the U. S. viewpoint prevailed: Communist capture of-nearby Yi- kiangshan and the Red aerial buildup on the coast have made the Tachens too expensive to hold; the garrison troops and their equipment to some other point of defense where they can be used more effectively. The source said Chiang did not insist on the guarantee by name, much as he might have liked It. Meanwhile. China press reports today, said Red China had doubled its air strength on coastal bases near the. Tachens in the last two months. They estimated the Reds have 800 planes of all types in the Hangchow — Ningpo-Chuhsien- Shanghai area. Some observers were more inclined to stick with a figure mentioned 60 days ago —400 planes. Must Exist With Reds, Seaton Says LINCOLN, Neb. <fP\— Asst. Secretary of Defense Fred Seaton said tiday the American people must find ways to exist in the same world with their Communist enemies. "Our central problem of survival consists of finding ways to live with those enemies under terms which effectively serve our interests." Seaton said in an address prepared for delivery before the graduating class at the University of Nebraska. Church News Briefs THE REV.

Plnay Mentioned Who might succeed him was hard to say. Coty announced he would start his consultations with parliamentary leaders this morning. But it was . believed unlikely that they would come up quickly with a successor who could get the support of a majority in the Assembly. Among those mentioned as possible choices were ex-Premier Antoine Pinay, who managed to stop France's spiraling inflation when he was In office two years ago, and Edgar Faure, also a former Premier, Faure was named foreign minister by Mendes-France only last week. Pinay is considered a conservative and is certain to draw the opposition of the Socialists, whose 105 members make them the largest single faction in the chamber. Some of Pinay's followers insist he will not accept a bid at this time, preferring to wait until another man has piloted the Paris accords on West German rearmament through the Senate. The Assembly already has approved the pacts admitting a rearmed West Germany into the North Atlantic Treaty Organization but a fight is expected when they come up for a ratification vote in the Senate late this month.
