Mr. Sanders said cotton acreage should b* increased Vs so that the little farmer could come back home to his land. He pointed to increased production of cotton by foreign countries and said some had increased their acreage 100*2 over the last few years. He spoke in favor of spreading cotton growing to new areas in the south and of restoring it in others. He said, "We must trade with everyone, sell cotton, even If we have to sell it to the Iron Curtain countries." At the luncheon, Mr. Wooten spoke to the buyers and presented the financial situation of cotton growers and buyers. W. R.

Leader innounceti. + Middlecolf, who won the Masters here Sunday, had left town by the time the President arrived yesterday /or an eight-day work- and-play vacation. But White House Press Secretary James C. Hagerty told newsmen there was a possibility Middlecoff might return to Augusta about Saturday to take on the chief executive. Eisenhower got in 18 holes yesterday afternoon at the Augusta National Club, site of the Masters, even though he was botherec "quite a bit"—as Hagerty put it^ by bursitls I n his right shoulder. For the past six weeks or so the President has been going to Walter Reed Hospital in Washington for treatment of his bursltis. Treatment Helped The 15-minute stints at the hospital have helped, but Eisenhower got a setback Monday in tossing out the first .baseball at the season opener between Washington and Baltimore. The pitch, Hagerty said wrenched his arm painfully. That was the reason Eisenhower used only his left hand in waving greetings yesterday to crowds in Augusta and Charleston, S.C. On the plane trip from Washington, the President stopped in Charleston for a visit to the Citadel military college, which presented him with an honorary doctor of laws degree. Besides more golf, Eisenhower planned some wor today on the foreign aid message he will send to Congress next week. Hagerty said there had been no decision yet whether the message will go to the Capitol while the President still is in Georgia—through next Wednesday- Washington. >r after he returns to Miss Ruth McKisson To be in Recital Miss Ruth McKisson, formerly of Blytheville, will be featured in a trombone recital, at Hendrix College on Thursday night.

Medical meetings were called to consider the new shot schedule and its effects on the program. Some communities deferred any announcements about their program until this question was settled.

Since that time, he sUted, state assistance to the schools has taken on the role of permanent support. Not to Little Rock He nifty or may not have had reference to this problem when he earlier he said, "We can't be running to Little Rock with all our problems," and then again called for more responsibility "at a local level."

The conflicting arguments add up to, this: Attorneys for Negro parents want the high court to fix n deadline for ending segregation—this coming September or September 1956 nt the outside.
