WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY, 16, 19f» BLYTHETItl.B (ARK.) COURIER NEW« PAGE THREH Smith Wants Cotton Acreage Insrease for Small Farmers Only . WASHINGTON (AP) — Rep. Frank Smith (D-Missj said yesterday he will fight to make any cotton acreage increase legislation apply only to hardship cases among small growers. He said a bill approved last week, by a Agriculture tjubcommit- 1 tee calling for a three per cent increase In the 1055 cotton acreage allotment ttctually wouldn't give much acreage to the small farm. The three per cent increase would be applied first to give small growers a minimum of five acres ; or the highest acreage planted In the past three years, whichever i« .smaller. Any remainder would be allotted to'fiirniK of any size whose 1955 quota is 40 per cent or more under 1954 plantings. 543,000-Acre Increase Some 543,000 acres of cotton would be added to the national allotment of 18,183,000 set by Secretary of Agriculture Benson. Last year's allotment was 21,370,000 acres. ' Smith told a reporter that while a total of 398,000 acres la required to meet the minimum acreage provision in all, states, the bill actually provides only some 240,000 acres for this purpose. The other 300,000 acres, he said, would go to relieve hardship cases among the larger growers. In Mississippi, Smith said, a total of 68,497 acres would 'be needed for the minimum provision while the bill would give the state only | 52,526 acres. Similarly, he said, North Carolina needs 85,943 acres for the small grower but would get only 15,471. 45,891' for Arkansas Arkansas would get 45,891 and needs only 8,465; and California would get 23,361 and needs none. "Since this bill is advanced on the .basis of relieving hardship among small growers," Smith said, "I favor limiting it to that purpose. I will offer an amendment in the House to provide that each state shall get whatever acreage it neds to meet the minimum provision." Such an amendment, he said. would add a total of 398,000 acres to the allotment. Railroad Work Not Glamorous, Veteran Claims ST. LOUIS <tf — It's disillusioning, boys, but a locomotive engineer with 54 years of railroading behind him says H isn't fun. "Like every other boy of my time, I thought railroading was glamorous," said 73-year-old Kichard Neidhart, the Missouri Pacific engineer who retired Sunday. He said he lost the idea more than half a century ago. "From then on It was just work ..." "Only once did I ever take a train farther a way than Sednlia (185 miles) Niedhart said somewhat bitterly, "That was the time they forgot to call an engineer and I had to take the Colorado Eagle all the way into Kansas City." But that extra run didn't broaden Neidhart's horizons. It was a night run and he couldn't see a tiling.

Read Courier News Classified Ads Little Rock Flight Surgeon Held In Death of Panamanian Children PANAMA Mi—A coroner's report yesterday blamed unknown causes for deaths pt five Panamanian children who took antimalarla tablets proscribed by a U.
