PAGE TWO BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS MONDAY, MARCH 14, 19S5 U.S. Probably Will Allow Visit of Russian Farmers By WARREN ROGERS JR WASHINGTON HI—Some American officials have expressed the belief today Russia wants this country to reject a series of offers to exchange visitors, so Red propagandists can yell "Iron Curtain." For that reason it was a safe bet the Kremlin's inquiry about exchanging Soviet and American farmer - visitors would get an affirmative response. The State Department said the whole question is under "active consideration" and a decision will be announced early next week. President Eisenhower already has said he sees nothing but good in allowing it, although some complications must be worked out. American officials whose-business it is to settle such complications expressed ,no fear of having Russians visit Iowa farms, as suggested originally by the Des Motnes Register, or tour American universities, as a group of Russian student editors already has been authorized to do. Nor do they express concern about letting Americans do likewise in the Soviet Union. There'll Be More However, it is the propaganda aspect that bothers them. As they see it, Russia will keep probing GOING UP — Rising into the sky at Bartlesvilie, Okla., is the odd-looking Price Tower. Nearing completion, the 19-story skyscraper will provide both living quarters and office space. World-famous Architect Frank Lloyd Wright is the designer. the U.S. position on exchange of persons in search of a soft spot. Should they find one—say, refusal to exchange, atomic experts—they could scream about an "Iron Cur. tain" around America. The Communists are known to de:est the label British Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill hung on them at the cutset of the cold war. They find the concept of an Iron Curtain damaging in the East-West propaganda battle. The Russians made much, propaganda-wise, of the United States' long delay before agreeing this week to admit 11 student editors for a tour of colleges and universities. They were part of a group that originally applied last summer. Almost at the same time this group was approved, a Soviet note suggested the exchange of the farmer delegations. There has been no indication Moscow wants to send any other group to America. However, U.S. officials do not discount the possibility that, the Kremlin will follow up, for instance, with suggestions that factory workers be allowed to make visits to places like Pittsburgh and Detroit. rtever Easy These decisions on admittini Russians, always made at a high level, are never easy. The McCarran-Walter Immigration law nro- hibits entry of Communists, but allows the secretary of state to recommend that this ban should be waived in the national interest. The attorney general must make the final ruling. Rep. Walter (D-Pa), coauthor of the immigration law, said today ho favors admitting the farmers so they can see what agricultural life is like here. They "can't do any harm," he said. During all last year 25 Russians were given temporary permits to visit the United States. These included 15 chess players who went to New York, four scientists who attended heart and eye medicine conferences, two skiers who visited Ishpeming, Mich., two Russian orthodox archbishops on church business, and two educators who attended Columbia University's bicentennial celebration.

Read Courier News Classified Ads HIGH OR LOW No matter how down-and-out an alcoholic may be, or how high he or she may be on the social and economic scales, we know from experience and observation that AA offers a sober way out of the squirrel cage of confusion problem drinking. Most of us have found it an easy way. When we first turned to AA many of us had a number of serious problems—problems involving money, family, job and our own personalities. We soon discovered that our immediate central problem was alcohol. Once we had that problem under control, we were able to make successful approaches to the other problems. Solutions to these problems have not always come easily, but we have been able to cope with them far more effectively when sober than we were able to do during our drinking days. There was a time when many of us believed that alcohol was the only thing that made life bearable. We could not even dream of a life without drinking. Today, in a strange, miraculous way, we do not feel that we have been deprived of anything. We feel, Instead, (hat a new dimension has been added to our lives. We have new friends, new horizons and new attitudes. After years of despair and frustration, many of us feel that we have really begun to live for the first time. We enjoy sharing that new life with anyone who is still suffering from alcoholism, as we once suffered and who seeks a way out of the darkness and into the light.

Sam the Crow Turns Traitor, Now Is Decoy for AF Hunters By TOM STONE FRANKFURT, Germany .iff — Sam is a loud-mouthed black crow — and a scoundrel. He used to settle on the U. S. Air Force base here each afternoon around dusk with hundreds of other crows with the same thought. The birds found out that the "dope" used on fabric of tail assemblies on Uncle Sam's planes would give them a jolt. They clambered all over the planes, pecking away at the stuff like crazy. Sometimes they punched holes in the fabric. That made the Air Force sore. Airmen tried to shoo them off. But the crows just came back. The fliers tried using long poles. That didn't work either. The crows used to roost in the Zeppelinheirn Woods near the main runway. Members of the base's rod : and gun club went there to shoot j them once in a while. They I knocked off a few. but not enough' to discourage the birds. Then Sam became a casualty. Airmen say he ground-looped and broke a wing. He was captured. The 7167th Air Transport Squadron made a deal with Sam. Sam agreed to put the finger on fellow crows — for a price. The Air Force came through with free quarters and rations. Now when the gun and rod boys go for a shoot, Sam goes along. He wears a strong cord tide to one leg. The 'other end is fastened to a bush. While the hunters get into position Sam starts screaming.

Building Main Roads of Concrete Will Save Citizens Millions in Arkansas Every citizen has a vital stake in building main roads that meet civil and defense traffic needs. You Want safe roads. You want roads of proved economy because you pay for them with license fees, gas and other motor vehicle taxes. Most main roads are concrete. Of the most heavily-traveled road sections in the U.S. 92 per cent is concrete. Some of this pavement has been resurfaced but it's the rigid concrete slab that itill carries the load. Most of America's heavily- traveled turnpikes also are concrete. Main roads should be built of concrete. It's tht safest, most economical pavement. Concrete's light color reflects up to four times more light than dark pavements. You sec objects on the road sooner, thus get more time to slow down or stop. Ij you can't sec, you can't be saje.' Concrete has a gritty surface texture that enables you to stop fast in emergencies without skidding, even in wet weather. Concrete is free from hazardous ruts, washboard ripples and raveled edges. Concrete is moderate in first cost yet can be designed accurately for any load—and will keep that load-carrying capacity for life. It costs less to maintain than other pavements, according to official state highway department records. It lasts longer; engineers now know how to build concrete roads that will serve 50 years or more. Moderate first cost+low maintenance expense H-long life Wow annual cost, or savings of millions of dollars for taxpayers.
