BLYTHEVILLE COURIER NEWS THE DOMINANT NEWSPAPER OF NORTHEAST ARKANSAS AND SOUTHEAST MISSOURI VOL. L—NO. 267 niytheville Courier Blythcvlllo Dnily News Mississippi Valley Leader Blylhoville Herald . BLYTHEVILLE, ARKANSAS, MONDAY, FEBRUARY 7, 1955 TWELVE PAGES Except Sunday SINGLE COPY FIVE CENTS Conservative Pinay Seeks Supporters New French Premier Plans Cabinet PARIS (AP) — Antoine Pinay, a conservative who once said he would "never go back into that bear cage," sought support today for his second term as French premier. The 63-year-old owner of a small- town tannery agreed last night to try to form Prance's 21st postwar government, succeeding the Cabinet of Pierre. Mende.s-France. Pinay told newsmen he hoped to have his list of prospective ministers ready by Thursday. One of the longer-Lived of France's numerous postwar premiers, Pinay headed the government for 9'i, months in 1952. He won considerable personal popularity with his conservative "save the franc" fiscal policy, which chocked rising prices though it did not solve France's basic economic ills. Facing three confidence votes and considered certain to lose all of them, he resigned Dec. 23, 1952 and vowed never again. He tried again to form a government, however, during the record 37-day government crisis in the summer of 1953, but failed. Otherwise, he has been on the sidelines. A, prim, almost dour little man, he rarely spoke in the Assembly but was a powerful voice in his Independent Republican party and a stubborn opponent of Mendes-France. 7th Fleet Jets Fired On As Evacuation Is Started Chiang Says Withdrawal New Truce Moves By UN Hinge On U.S. Intentions But Tachens ion NEW BUIUMN'O STARTS — Foundation for the new home of Blythcville Tool and Dye Company was being prepared today.
