PACWTWO BLTTHEVILLK (ARK.) 1 COURIER NEW1 JHURSDAT, MARCH 8, 19M Soviet Said in Midst Of Major Shakeup By TOM WHITNEY AP Foreign Staff The Soviet government is in the middle of a major shakeup. It's all taking place, according to official Soviet announcement, "at the recommendation of" the new Premier, Nikolai Bulganin. This week there have been 11 big changes: 1. Three members of the Kremlin's Big Nine—Deputy Premiers A. I. Mikoyan, M. Z. Saburov and M. O. Pervukhln—were promoted to first deputy premiers, the next rank below Bulganin. 2. Four men were leap-frogged into the high rank of deputy premier past officials senior to them in their own special fields. These promotions went to A. P.

Zavenyagin also was named lo replace Deputy Premier V. A. Malyshev as minister of medium machine building, the post believed to control Russia's atomic weapons program. Malyshev apparently retained his deputy premiership though and was named to supervise a group of "machinery ministries." 4. Two ministers—coal industry chief A. S. Zasyadko and state farms boss A. I. Kozlov — were fired in disgrace for unsatisfactory work. Zasyadko's deputy minister, A, N. Zademidko, was stepped up to replace hieforme boss. 5. Agriculture Minister I. A. BenediktoV was demoted to the state farms post, but no successor was named to him. The changes reflect the realignment of Kremlin political factions which resulted in the resignation Feb. 8 of Georgi Malenkov as premier and Bulgaria's appointment to succeed him. Apparently , they are—at least in part—really ! Bulgaria's work, but the hand of Communist party boss Nikita Khrushchev is .also to be seen. The implications are complex, with economic, military and political facets. The new setup apparently revitalizes an important organ of the Soviet government"' which may have been moribund for some time—the Presidium of the Council of Ministers (Cabinet) of the Soviet Union.

Arab Refugees In Demonstration GAZA. Egypt-held Palestine UP)— Hundreds of Arab refugees, angered by Monday's clash between Israeli and Egyptian troops,, demonstrated in the face of police and army gunfire today. At least seven people were wounded as police and Egyptian army troops fired on demonstrators to maintain order. 50 members. The Presidium now has six members—Bulganin, the three new first deputies, and the two holdovers of that rank, L. M. Kaganovich and Foreign Minister V. M. Molotov. Diplomats in Moscow reportedly think the Presidium may function from now on as a leading policy planning group. On the other hand, Mikoyan, Saburov and Pervukhin all were believed to have shared ex-Premier Malenlcov's views on a number of major Issues. Instead of getting real promotions, they may have been kicked upstairs from direct control of the ministries they previously supervised. The promotion of new men to deputy premierships and the naming of a new coal minister appear to reflect political jockeying among Kremlin factions trying to recruit support for themselves. It is still too early, though, to judge how the factional lines are shaping up. The changes probably mean increased emphasis on production of modern armaments. One of the new deputy premiers, Khrunichev, is a specialist on the aviation industry. Another, Zavenyagin, is almost certainly an atomic industry specialist. The representation of war industries in the Soviet government's inner circle appears to have increased greatly.

In Orderly Manner "We believe," he said, "that the market has been functioning.in an orderly manner and that the present market level reflects the public's appraisal of present business conditions and prospects for the future." To guard against "skulduggery," he said, the exchange has "kept a careful watch for excesses which would indicate unsound conditions in the sale of securities either in our ou-o market or elsewhere." "Despite evidence that some members of the public have, in certain instances, paid more attention to tips and rumors than was desirable, there is no indication that a generally unwholesome condition has prevailed in our market," he said. He voiced belief that present regulation of the market adequately protects the public. ' HOLLAND (Continued from Page 1) them that "he felt like he was awaking from a daze." He didn't talk further about his disappear- -ance, his parents stated. He was asked if he needed money and he told them that he did not. . When they called his brother, Patrick, in St. Francis. Kans., they said they also had heard from Harris. Patrick had arrived at his parents' home last Friday evening, after being informed his brother was missing. His father stated Harris wanted to return and that his brothers, Marcus and Patrick, were leaving for Memphis where Patrick will board an airplane to San Diego. His brother, Patrick, stated before leaving that he would return at once to Holland with his brother, driving his 'Harris') car. Harris was said to suffer migraine headaches. The parents say they have no information relative to what happened. Eisenhowers Honored MENTIONED—R. W. Cook is considered a likely candidate to succeed Maj. - Gen.

IJl—An Army general courtmartial today will de : termine the punishment to be imposed on a Ft. Bragg sergeant convicted of aiding the enemy while a prisoner in Korea. The eight-man court can choose a sentence ranging from reprimand to death. The prosecution, however, said the death penalty would not be asked for M. Sgt. WHilam H. Olson, convicted on three of seven specifications of aiding the Chinese Reds and of swearing falsely that he did not collaborate with the enemy. Olson, 40-year-old Army career man. was found guilty of making speeches derogatory to the United States and writing pro-Communist articles, for a camp newspaper. He was visibly shaken when the court, after nine hours of continuous deliberation, announced the verdict. PRIEST (Continued from Page 1) leave for Helsinki Friday or Saturday.

I FAUBUS (Continued from Page 1) governor. "I have decided on my a reduction of services," said the course and I intend to stay with it." Asked if he thought that the AEA statement would lend the public to believe that the tax increase was his proposal alone, Faubus said: "The people will judge from the facts rather than from what Is said." Faubus declined to speculate on whether or not, the AEA statement has hurt the chances for passage of his bill. Previously the influential organ- izntion, which is comprised of teachers and school administrators, had indicated that it would actively support any tax increase for public schools. However,, the AEA wanted the sales tax increased from two to three per cent over the next two years, instead of 13 months as Faubus has proposed. Over 2-Year Period Both proposals are aimed at providing an additional $10.300,000 for public schools as emergency aid. The AEA bill would make the money available annually, while under the Faubus bill the revenue would have to be spread over a two-year period. There is little chance that the two-year proposal will pass, and the fate of the 13-month measure is receiving stern opposition in both houses. The AEA statement said: "We recognize that there is little, if any, chance of passage of revenue measures at this session of the Legislature sufficient to underwrite the minimum program we believe to be essential to the preservation of the public schools... "If the Legislature enacts no tax measures, state aid to the public schools next year will be reduced by a minimum of $213 per teacher unit. By any standard of judgment the schools face a critical situation. "It appears that most of the money from the proposed 13 month increase in the sales tax will be required to make up the present deficit in the state budget, and to provide necessary funds for other agencies of the state government The financial crisis is not confined to the public schools, but is spread over the whole of the state govern- - GUARANTEED "Always a Goofi^ .".V Box Office Opens 6:45 Show Starts 7:00 p. m.

Miliage Celling: Criticized A proposal to submit a constitutional amendment to the people to put a limit of 30 mills on the amount of tax which a school district can levy on property was criticized in the AEA statement. The organization said it would have no objection to a millage limit after the new property tax equalization bill takes full effect in 1957, but doesn't want the mill- age to be restricted before that time. If the proposed constitutional a- mentment is submitted, the people would vote on it in 1956. Tuesday's Atomic Fallout Higher BOULDER, Cola.
