BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY, 16, 1958 Delay of German Rearmament Is Sevan's Target LONDON (AP) — Left Wing Laborite Aneurin Bevan today pushed a new move to delay West German rearmament until after the Western powers hold top level talks with the Russians. He obtained surprisingly large support from the Labor party's moderate wing that heretofore has looked to Clement Attlee, the official leader, for guidank. Political observers said if van's maneuver is successful, he will place both Attlee and Prime Minister Churvill's Conservative Commodity And Stock Markets- New York Cotton (M:3t New Orleans Cotton Mar May July Oct Dec 3436 3472 3498 3498 3502 3438 3474 3502 3505 3510 3435 3470 3498 3498 3502 3505 3506 3435 3470 3499 3502 3502 Chicago Soybeans Mar .. 277^/i 278K 276!-i May ... 273% 274% 272= 4 July ... 270 270% 269!i Sept ... 257 2S7'/4 256% 278 y, 273% 269% 257 Chicago Corn Mar May 152 154% 152 154% Chicago Wheat Mar May 223 220-y, 2S3 221'/i 221% 219% 223 221'A New York Stocks A T and T 178 Amer Tobacco 63 1-2 Anaconda Copper 52 5-8 Beth Steel in 1-2 Chrysler 69 3-8 Coca-Cola 121 Qen Electric 54 7-8 Gen Motors 94 Montgomery Ward 79 1-2 N Y Central 34 1-4 Int Harvester 37 1-2 Republic Steel 88 3-4 Radio 42 Socony Vacuum 55 1-2 Stud-Pak 12 1-2 Standard of N J 115 1-2 Texas Corp 95 1-8 Sears 80 1-2 U S Steel 78 7-8 Livestock NATIONAL STOCKYARDS.

Attlee is Sevan's great rival within the Labor party. Both Favor Talks Both Attlee and Churchill favor ig Pour talks but only after the final ratification of the Paris agreements to rearm and integrate the West Germans into the Western defense setup. Bevan attacked their position in a motion introduced in the House of Commons last night. A total of 104 Laborites joined the Bevanites in sponsoring this measure. If this list grows by the weekend to include an absolute majority of the 285 Labor members, the Bevanite motion will have to be debated. The true evanite strength is figured at 40. Would Lose Prestige Attlee would suffer a marked loss of prestige if the motion goes 10 a debate. Altlee narrowly defeated the Bevanite campaign against arms for the West Germans at the Labor party conference in Scarborough last fall. He has held his own on this issue since. Last week the parliamentary members of the party defeated a Bevanite motion on the subject at a private caucus by 93 votes to 70. Atom Tests Again Delayed By Weather LAS VEGAS, Nev. t/fi — Cautious atomic testers met hopefully today in H third attempt to pry the lid off Operation Teapot, the new nuclear series which has been twice layed by shiiting winds.

The opening shot had been set foi Tuesday morning but was postponed then because of more northerly winds.

Committee approval cleared the bill for action by the House when and if the Rules Committee gives it clearance. Approval of the bill, which lacks administration endorsement in its combined form, was voted by 10 Democrats and 9 Republicans and moved the issue toward an uncertain fate. Pour Democrats and 2 Republicans voted "no." President Eisenhower wants immediate statehood for Hawaii but has snid action on Alaska should be delayed until that territory's "complex problems" have been solved. Prior to its vote on the whole bill, the committee approved an amendment by Delegate Bartlett D-Alaska to permit the President to establish a military reservation limited to -10 per cent of the area of Alaska roush- ly north and west of the Yukon River. President William Henry Harrison had 10 children, six sons and four daughters, by one wife. (Continued from Page 1) very dangerous, but the statement shows that we can keep the problem of protection under control." Only Slight The total amount of radiation received by residents of the United States from all conventional and hydrogen atomic tests up to now. including those conducted by the United States, Russia and Britain, is only about that received i n a normal chest X-ray, the AEC asserted. The commission was optimistic, but less positive, about long-range effects of cumulative radloation on children born of parents exposed to radiation. The commission said there is "a rather wide range" of opinion on this subject but that its medical advisers believe the small amount of additional exposure of Americans from the weapons testing program "U'iJl not seriously affect the genetic constitution of human beings." It added that "nevertheless, we are continuing our thorough study of the entire question . . ." The AEC statement, together with recent claims by Soviet officials to atomic weapons superiority, brought up old questions. Secretary of Defense Wilson was asked at a news conference yesterday if he thought an atomic stalemate had been reached between the United Slates and Russia. Wilson replied that "I think we are out ahead of them." But did he think the Russians knew that? Ye.s," said Wilson. ROMANIAN (Continued from Page 1) other two told Kesse they had taken an oath to hold the legation and wanted to be absolved of this vow by a Catholic priest before surrendering. The ultimatum originally had been set to expire at 11 a.m. Troops Encircle Building: The building from which the ami-Red fly'nters drove the Romanian diplomatic staff and their families yesterday was encircled by steel-helmeted, heavily armed Swiss army troops and reinforced police units with submnchinegcms. Two armored antitank guns, nearby but out of sight, backed them up. The police commissioner was reported to have told the four men the police would be compelled to use force if they did not come out. The band—identified as members of the Romanian anti-Communist resistance movement —seized the building at gunpoint before dawn yesterday, driving staff members and their families into the street. A legation chauffeur was wounded fatally in the attack. Demanding the release of five compatriots jailed in Romania, the men declared their readiness to die to achieve this aim. Apology Forwarded A blistering official note from Bucharest yesterday demanded the arrest and extradition to Romania of the invaders. It held Switzerland responsible for what it called a violation of international law by a "gang of Romanian Fascists and other criminal elements." 1 The Swiss government replied today to Romania with formal apolo- ies for the attack and the death of the chauffeur. But Switzerland's not to the Foreign Office in Bucharest protested the "unseeminsly tone" of the Romanian communication and rejected its "unjustified accusations" that the Swiss had not acted with enough speed or vigor. The Socialist Press Service of Switzerland, quoting reliable sources, reported today that the invaders had found documents in the Legation which showed that it was "a spy center against the Swiss." The press service said the documents were handed over to Swiss police by a fifth member of the band who left the building early yesterday and was arrested. The report added that the documents had been returned to Romanian charge d'affaires.

Severance Tax Bills Rejected LITTLE ROCK 1*1 — Two bills to increase the severance taxes on barite and bauxite were rejected today by the Senate Reveneu and Taxation Committee. The votes on both bills, authored by Sen. Guy H. Jones of Conway, were unanimous. Jones proposed to increase the 10 cents n ton tax on barlte to a top of 60 cents a ton. The bauxite tax would have been increased from 25 cents to a maximum of $1.25 a ton. carried out "under the auspices" of Swiss authorities. Tass said the seizure was made possible because of the "passive attitude" of Swiss authorities and "obvious encouragement from the Fascist scum among Romanian emigrants." Bern Police Chief Edunrd Prei- mulier said yesterday the band apparently had slipped across the Swiss border illegally. In Midst of Cold War The incident plunged traditionally neutral Switzerland into the midst of the East-West cold war and dominated life in the normally quiet and conservative capital. Thousands flocked to the park surrounding the legation for a quick ook at the warlike scene. The troops moved in around the legation during the night, taking over from police who surrounded ;he building early yesterday morning. Police said one man was cap- :ured as he tried to slip out yes- :erday morning. Inside the building;, lights burned throughout the night as the desperate anti - Communists kept watch. They were armed with machine guns, grenades, knives and gas masks. At intervals.their leader, covered by the guns of his comrades, would come to the le- tion porch and converse in German with police officials. Two Swiss officials spent more nan two hours inside the building ast night in a fruitless effort to nduce the four to get out peace- ully. ASSEMBLY (Continued from Page H the feed exemption. In reply to a question, Little said he had not discussed his proposed revision with Faubus, who supports the feed tax repealer. He said newspaper articles had quoted Paubus as approving his income tax bill. Stock BUI Approved The House approved a bill by Eep. C. L. Durrentt of Union County to require State Police and sheriffs to impound unlettered livestock found on highways or rights of way. Durrett said his bill would put teeth Into the 1948 initiated act designed to prohibit stock from running at large on highways. Senate forces seeking approval of a bill to divert surplus highway .funds to municipal aid won a test vote yesterday by gaining approval of an amendment to their bill. The amendment, offered by Sen. Lawrence Blackwell of Pine Bluff, says highway funds can't be tapped for municipal aid unless the Legislative Audit Committee certifies that a surplus exists. The Senate approved the amendment 17-J3 after a sharp debate. School Merger Approved The Senate also approved the merger of Beebe Junior College with Arkansas State College of Jonesboro, but only by a margin of one vote, 19-12. Sen. Tom Allen said there was a possibility the Beebe school would fold If it weren't taken over by a larger school. He said the University of Arkansas had declined to accept the small institution. Opposition to the bill was led by Sen. Robert H, Williams of Russellville, who charged that it would create a "university of east Arkansas." Williams said the state couldn't afford to support an expansion of State College. However, supporters of the bill said neither State nor Beebe plans to ask for an increased appropriation as a result of the merger. State will operate the Beebe fa- CLEANER! FASTER!
