(AP) — The total income of Arkansans last year apparently remained at 1953's high levels despite a decline in farm cash receipts and industrial wages.

Under the alliance, Soviet Russia was given special railroad rights in Manchuria and the use of Port Arthur as n naval base. Daircq was supposed to be an international free port. U. S. Requested It The independent newspaper said: "We understand that the treaty was signed at the request of the United States and that some pressure was exerted. -We are still in the dark, however, as to why China acquiesced so easily, why this country was in such a vulnerable position .exactly what kind of pressure was exer by the United States, how strongly China was under duress, and wha consequences were threatened If China failed to sign the treaty. "The people of a democratic country have the right to demand all the facts in a matter so vitally affecting their destiny."

Construction of 54 new manufactjr- ng plants, plus the. expansion of existing facilities, represented nvcstlng during 1954 of 21 million dollars, the report said.
