The report die not give the reason. The French Foreign Ministry said it had no information beyond the French News Agency account. Paris Surprised The report took Paris by surprise. Only a month ago the King had won an overwhelming vote ot confidence in a plebiscite he culled to reassert his national popularity. He had ordered the vote to still an underground campaign claiming Cambodia's independence from Prance had been obtained not by Sihanouk but by Son Ngoc Thanh, premier during the Japanese occupation and the leader of the chief opposition to the King. Chosen In 1941 Sihanouk was chosen king to succeed his uncle in 1941. After the Japanese occupation, he sponsored the transformation of his country from an absolute to a parliamentary monarch with France retaining control of the kingdom's military and foreign affairs and much of its economic policy. Though he at first sided with the French in their fight against Indochina's nationalist rebels, the King during a visit to the United States in April 1953 demanded Cambodian independence and said lis people might fight alongside .he Communist-led Vietminh if they did not get satisfaction. \Jegro Deaths Beulah Williams Livestock NATIONAL STOCKYARDS, HI.

ASSEMBLY (Continued from Pit* 1) slon to supervise the job; to au thorfze the withholding of stat turnback funds; and to arbltraril increase the assessments in an sub-division which fails to compl with the bill. The equalization bill's supporter fought off an attempt to kill th bill by amendment before votini final approval. Sen. J. Lee Bearden of Leach ville sought to amend the bill s< (l) it would not take effect untl a constitutional limit was placec on school millage rates, and (2 that any county which levied least 3d mills for schools would no be.deprived of state aid regard!*, of its assessment rate. The voters would have to amem the state Constitution to put a ceil ing on school millage rates. Thi Constitution, which can be changei only by public vote, now says m limit can be placed on school mill age. Bearden said school districts in his county now collect W mills and that enforced assessments a 20 per cent wuld break business men and farmers. The Senate rejected Bearden's amendment 22-8, and then passed the bill. Wage Bill Killed A second attempt to raise the state's minimum wage for women workers to a top of S3.60 a day was killed by amendment in the Senate Two amendments, to exempt the city of Hot Springs and all "ho tels, hospitals and other services agencies" from the House bill were adopted. Earlier in the session, another minimum wage bill which had the same provisions as the one klllec yesterday, also ' was defeated by amendments. The Senate received three State Police Commission appointments from the governor's office for confirmation. The appointees are Joe Bill Hackler of Mountain Home Olen Hedrix of Antolne and Mike Berg of Camden. Striker Bill Passed The House passed and sent to Gov. Faubus a Senate bill spelling out that strikers are not entitled ' state unemployment compensa- an. Present law denies compensation to persons unemployed as a result of a "work stoppage due to a labor dispute." The bill, introduced in the Senate by Sen. Ellis Fagan of Little Rock, would cut out the 'work stoppage" part. The House also passed Senate bills to set up a retirement system for the state's official court reporters and to extend the Highway Department retirement plan to all employes, regardless of salary Highway employes earning less than $2.400 yearly now are not required to participate in the retirement set-up. Under another Senate bill the House approved, a guest in an air- plant wouldn't be entitled to re:over damages from the pilot for injuries suffered in a crash unless could prove the operator had been "wantonly" reckless.
