Malone (R-Ncv) today told a rally . of conservative Republicans that "our foreign policies are largely dictated by so-called allies." He was teamed up with two other senators — McCarthy of Wisconsin and Dirksen of Illinois— and three other speakers on a daylong program of speeches. The over-all theme was: "What must the Republican party do In 1955 to preserve the republic and itself? Malona. in a prepared address, said no U. S. business or manufacturing interest subject to competition from foreign imports is fully independent. He added: "The State Department— most of its personnel a carryover from two Democratic administrations — markets.' These billions, he added, should be invested in defense.

He stated the Republican party's mission is "to save America by RED FLEET (Continued from Page 1) mained in the area, guarding against any premature attempt by Red Chinese to take over the empty islands. The Communists, eight miles away on Yikiangshan Island and 14 miles away on the mainland, made no attempt to interfere with the final stage of .the evacuation. The seas calmed and the wind died down as the fleet began to pull out. The weather was brisk. The windup completed six days of frenzied activity during which 40,000 or more civilians, guerrillas find Nationalist troops were removed from the Tachens, the Yu Shans, 35 miles northeast, and pishan, 32 miles southwest. Demolitions Touched Off The evacuation was climaxed by a tremendous pyrotechnic display last night as demolition teams touched off piles of ammunition. The explosions rocked ships off the Tachens and shot balls of fire high to the sky. Becker and AP photographer Fred Waters reported their last look at the Tachens today. "The rats took over," they said. "Thousands of them scurried through deserted villages. Big Sun Hat Village, a thousand-year-old former pirate town, lay smoking in near ruin. Many stone houses are burned out hulks. "There are gaping holes where Nationalist soldiers blasted their elaborate fortifications into uselessness. ' 'The billowing explosions had ceased and an eerie silence had taken their place." Here on Formosa, fresh units of Chiang's U. S.-trained 46th division landed and left almost immodiat ly by train for military camps to tiie south. Started Sunday The big withdrawal operation started Sunday when orders flashed to the waiting U. S. 7th Fleet to head for the Tachens. Ships converged from Okinawa, Manila, Saigon, Formosa and Hong Kong. Six carriers, one converted io an antisubmarine warship, cruisers and destroyers coursed in a half- ring off the islands and planes circled overhead throughout the evacuation. One Navy Skyraider carrying a million dollars worth of radar was shot down by Communist mainland antiaircraft when it strayed off course. Nationalist ships picked up the pilot and both crewmen. Communist guns on Yikiangshan fired at four other planes and scored a few holes in the wing of one. Fleet and air gunners were under orders to "fire back if fired on" but the 7th Fleet commander, Adm. Alfred M. Pride, ruled (he incidents were caused by American pilots flying too close to Red from 1,700 persons from 24 states, the bulk of them from Illinois. McCarthy Scheduled Sen. McCarthy was scheduled to take over as the final speaker at 4:30 p.m. EST. Kit Clardy, a former congressman from Michigan who was a member of the House Un-American Activities Committee, devoted part of a prepared address to criticism of Americans for Democratic Action and the Committee for an Effective Congress. He also said: "So long as the Stevenson. Reuther, ADA, left-wing philosophy retains control of the Democratic party machinery—so long as they put up candidates who subscribe to the theory that we have nothing to fear from the Communists within our midst— the hope of the nation must rest with the Republican party and those Southern Democrats \vho have not forgotten their heritage." " Sponsors of the one-day meeting were the Committee of One Thousand Republicans, headed by Gen. William Hale Wilbur (ret) of Highland Park, 111.; the Abraham Lincoln Republican Club, and four other Chicago area groups.

However, there are two interpretations of "riparian rights" and the Court never has chosen between the two. Two Interpretation* , One interpretation of "riparian rights"—R doctrine which descended from Anglo-Saxon common law — is that a man is entitled to use all surface walor adjoining his land so long as the rights of another are not infringed .upon. The other interpretation says a man can use surface water only for such "domestic purposes" as household use, watering a garden, and his milch cows. Irrigation of croplands and watering of cattle are not considered domestic uses. Melton's bill would replace the "riparian rights" doctrine with an established state policy, and the proposed commission would set out who has priority to every body of surface water in Arkansas, with the exception of private lakes. The senator points to the Pope- Jones Act, which allows fanners to borrow federal funds to finance irrigation work, as a major reason why the Legislature should act this session .
