THURSDAY, FEBnUARY 24, 19S5 BLYTHEVILLE (ABK.)

But only 4 of the 20 ministers picked by Paure, a Radical Socialist (moderate), for his conservative-toned Cabinet served in the previous government of Pierre Mendcs-Prancc. And two of the in the closing days France's term, aftei four have dillerent jobs. While most of Ihe ministers have had previous Cabinet experience, they must catch up on the details of their new posts before venturing far In policy decisions. Served As Minister Faure held the Foreign Office of Mendes.... • previously serving as finance minister. He must check out Antoine Pinay, the new foreign affairs chief, on International questions. These are the Cabinet's most urgent problems: 1. A budget only partially approved. The military budget has not even been submitted. The Assembly voted provisional funds to carry the government through January, and February and probably will * use the same device foi March.

The Paris treaties to free and rearm West Germany have been ratified by the Assembly tut still must be approved by Ihe Council of the Republic, upper house of parliament. 3. Negotiations with Tunisia over internal self-government. Mendes- France was thrown out of office because of his North African policies, just as talks with leaders in Tunisia, a French protectorate, reached a climax. 4. Wage increases for workers. 5. Tax la% revision, mall merchants and shopkeepers are protesting loudly against alleged dis' criminations. Parties In the coalition included the Radical Socialists, Popular Republican Movement IMRP), De Oaullists and- representatives of smaller factions. The MRP gave only hesitant support, indicating (he Cabinet would not necessarily have a long life.

Ifi — A wispy radioactive Hl/.z that settled I' like dew over this western New i York village had the scientific | community in somewhat of a dither today. Could that strange sniff be cot-: ton?

There were strong j arguments in suppon of the latter, j The substance, Ions and cob- j webby, fell over a residential area i half a mile square Sunday niyht, | covering trees, shrubbery and' houses.

Could B« Some hydrocarbon plastics art made from milk, Stelmak said, and within three blocks of the heavle«t concentration of the fallen material is a dairy plant that makes powdered milk. The manager of the plant, Lawrence Peer, agreed that the dairy could very well be at the bottom of the mystery. The plant's process he said, calls for puHing the milk under intense heat. A scum forms on top of the milk, and some o* it may have escaped up a defaa- live flue. Addresses Senatt MANILA — Sen.
