P&OV BLYTHETILLB (ARK.)' COUBIBR WEDNESDAY, MARCH W, 1«W Ike Backs Dulles' Statement on A-Weaponllse Sees No Reason For Hold-Back In Event of War (Continued from Page 1) needs strengthening. But Eisen- Nixon that the Republican Party next year. He did say he believes the Re* publican Party can win the Presidency next year with any candidate worthy of the nomination if the party develops programs for the benefit of all the people. The discussion was touched off when a reporter quoted Nixon as saying in a California speech ear- }ier this week that the Republican Party is not strong enough to win in 1956 without Eisenhower as candidate for reelection. The newsman noted that the President two weeks ago had suggested a year's moratorium on questions as to whether he will seek reelection. The President laughed and said he thought his suggestion for moratoium would be observed until he heard the part of the question dealing with his own political future. Then, without any hint whatever as to those plans, he said he agreed with Nixon's evaluation that the party needs strengthening. He added that he personally had never gone into any fight with as much strength as he would like to have. TAXES — Humph! That was the President's one word reaction when asked to comment on Senate defeat yesterday of Democratic proposals to cut income taxes. The House had voted a $20 income tax cut for everybody, so differences between that measure and the Senate bill must now be reconciled. AUTOMATION—Eisenhower said he thinks any danger of automation—the replacement of workers by industrial devices—Is apt to be exaggerated. On a related matter, the President said he is not ready to state his position on the demand by automobile unions for a guaranteed annual Wage. Eisenhower recalled that he has several times advocated extension of unemployment insurance. He said he still favors that but has come to no conclusion on matters such as the annual wage. WAR BANGER — Eisenhower said the danger of war today is of course greater than it was during the years when he was a youth. That was in reply to a request for his views on the possibility of war in the Far East. CIVIL DEFENSE — One of the most serious problems facing the country, the President .said, is building an adequate civilian defense against the possibility of atomic attack. • * • DIXON-YATES — Eisenhower said he doesn't know for sure whether there is any need for review at this time of any phase of the controversial Dixon-Yates power contract. This proposes construction of a private power plant, under contract with the Atomic Energy Commission, across the Mississippi River from Memphis, Tenn. A reporter said there is a renewed proposal for construction of a publicly-owned steam plant at Pulton, Term., near Memphis. The President replied he knows of no reason why Memphis doesn't have a complete right to set up any power producing plant it wants to. But he said no one should forget that when the federal government steps into the picture, it can print money and nobody else can do that. The important thing to watch against, the P esident said, is that the peoples' money Is not cheapened.

Ford said: "We're not going to have any trouble out of the children if the parents will just leave them alone." In discussing finances, Ford listed these prospects for 1955-56 for the administrators: 1. Many of the larger school districts have some reserve funds, which will save their programs. 2. Some districts will cut a month off from the nine-month term. 3. Some districts will stretch eight months school money over a nine-month term by reducing some salaries. 4. Others will readjust budgets to keep up both terms and teachers' salaries by cutting off "some of the things the people desire, but which are not essential." Ford said that an oddity of the new state aid distribution is that larger, and fast growing, districts will receive a larger reduction than districts with fewer students. Ford said that as state, revenues decline, the reductions will be made according to the number of classroom units. Dyess Student Applies Harry Hall of Dyess is one of two Henderson State Teachers College ROTC students whose applications for regular Army commission arc pending. Hall is a cadet adjutant in the ROTC unit at the college. SCHOOLS (Continued from Pagt 9 past. Approximately 1,000 children connected with the base would be necessary to get the $.450,000 to $500,000 sought hy school officials here, and board members indicated they had good reason to believe that the figure would range between 1,000 and 1,500 children. If such funds do become available, and the requested bond issue is approved, the borad feels the is approved, the board feels the can be completed. But all six points of the plan are considered vital by the board and are felt to be necessary to meet the overcrowded situation in the school system. No Priority While no actual priority has been established on the various points of the plan in case sufficient funds for the entire project are not made immediately available, board spokesmen indicated that replacement of the two condemned Negro schools, Robinson and Elm Street, are first on the list for completion. The others are considered about equal in importance. One factor which could influence the order of construction is that federal funds are not available for field house construction. They must be used for buildings to be used for class- work. Thus, if federal money is obtained, the board's plan would be to use part of the bond issue funds for construction of the field house. Though no definite plans .for the various projects have been set, and no estimates of the cost of each of the six points has been arrived at by the board, plans for each project have been studied and discussed. Tentative plans, again depending 1 on funds made available, call for a 12-room building to replace Robinson School and a 14-room unit to replace Elm Street School. The two additional grade schools for white students would provide 16 more classroom units. The school for east Blytheville would be six roms and the Central ward building would have 12. No Discussions on Gym Various field house plans have been studied by the board though no decisions have been made as to size or capacity. Board spokesmen said primary concern is to provide sufficient space for conducting physical education classes for junior and senior high students. The need for basketball facilities I also will b< ooMlfered, they Hid. According to state standard!, ich- ool official* pointed out, the teacher load in Blytheville's district is enough to justify 16 additional t«a cher units.. Eighty-three elementary ' teachers are doing the work that 98 teachers should be doing based on state standards. Present enrollment in elementary schools in the district is 2,583. According to North Central Association, recommendations Blytheville's teacher and classroom facilities have a capacity of 1,596 students. Limit Our Debt Blytheville's present bonded debt is $688,267 • which is being retired by U mi lie of the' present 40-mlll levy. The district would be almost at its bonding capacity of $1,160,089 with passage of the requested ?470,000 issue. Six mills of the requested 45-mill tax would go for retirement of the new bond issue with 25 mills to be used for maintenance and operation of schools and M mills for the previous debt. The five-mill increase would bring in an additional $38,669 in revenue. Service on the $470,000 bond issue will take $31,000 leaving about $7,000 per year for equip!ng the new schools and providing additional teachers to fill them. School Board spokesmen pointed out the district could continue operation as it has In the past without additional construction, except for the condemned Negro schools, though no construction of needed facilities could be undertaken without these funds sought by the board.

The union said as a result of Nationalist Chinese threats and the U.K. ban on strategic materials to the Chinese Reds, "the ship finds itself in danger of getting involved in actions of war." It called on (he tanker's Finnish owners to "direct the ship to safer waters." The union announcement said the crew has refused to sail beyond Singapore. The eastbound tanker is believed to be somewhere in the Indian Ocean. Finnish shipping circles suggested the owners, the Re-Be Shipping Co., might divert the Aruba to Indonesia for reloading of the 13,000 ton cargo on to other China- destined ships. Congressmen Protest A spokesman for the shipping company said no action could he taken yet because no strike warning had been received. The Aruba picked up its load of jet fuel from the Romanian port of Constanza, on the Black Sea. When it sailed for Red China early this month U.S. congressmen launched a series of protests and the Chinese Nationalists on Formosa said they would intercept the tanker. . The Fiimish government said it was powerless to stop the Aruba because it was privately owned and chartered "to a foreign cow- try"—reportedly to a Hong Kong shipping firm owned by the Obi- nese Beds. 647 Crashes, Crew Escap«f FLORENCE, S.

Forrest Foiles of the Civil Air Patrol here said the burned wreckage of the slx-englned let bomber was found five miles north of North. He said the plane first sent distress signals as it flew over Charleston, where a refueling operation was scheduled.
