WEDNESDAY, APRIL 27, I960 BLYTHEVI1.I.E (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE SEVEN Arkonsons in Woshington; Arkansas Jim Trimble Is Just Plain. Lucky; Faubus to Be Guest By GORDON BROWN WASHINGTON (AP) —'Rep. Jim Trimble (L> Ark) is just plain lucky. He fell heir to a "captive" audience in the House when he accused tlio Budget Bureau of "frustrating" the will of Congress on ihe river development program. Normally when a House member makes a speech under "special orders" at the close of the day's business, there are only a handful of members on hand. And usually these are there because they are waiting to make speeches of their own. But when Trimble took the floor, 150 or 200 House members were on hand. Most of them were Repub- out the Republicans licans. It turned were just waiting for Trimble to finish so they could use the chamber for a party caucus. tiuest at Brunch Gov. Orval Faubus, accompanied by his wife and his aide, J. L. Bland, will ge guest of the Arkansas State Society here Sunday. May 1. at "brunch." the society's annual The Arkansas society affair will be at the Sheritan Park Hotel and will include a reception. Faubus will make a short talk. Navy Commander E. Scott Mc- Cust.ey is slated to be new President of the society. New Encouragement Arkansas members of Congress got mw encouragement over prospects for eventual development of the Arkansas Elver when Army Engineers recently took the big project off its "deferred" list and placed it in the active classification. This doesn't, mean, however, that there will be any big or immediate start on the program, but at least it is out where it can get on the rack. As a starter. Rep- Brooks Hays (D-Ark) and Sen. McClellan ID- Ark) likely will make a try this year for funds to start construction of the proposed Dardanelle multiple purpose dam, upstream from Little Bock. This is one of the starting projects In the overall program. One block in the path of the Dardanelle dam, however, is an Army Engineer contention that one or two sedimentation dams first should be built upstream in Oklahoma. These are the Keystone and Eu.'aula dams. However, Hays said Dardanelle could be started and then Eufaula or Keystone could come immediately behind. In putting the Arkansas River program on the active list, the engineers put the damper on power features of several of the. proposed dams, namely Keystone, Oologah, Webber Falls and Ozark.

First Paint Closeout Man; TTP» >»' CtlMI i Price Hubbord Hardware word the other day on an Important decision by a , cabinet levei group lor exporting some 2& million hundredweight of surplut United States rice to Japan under the surplus commodity act. The news was Important in two respects: First, '-ecause it is o means of making a big dent in the United States rice surplus and, second, because it was a victory ot the Agriculture Department over the State Department. State had sought to tie some strings to the transaction which wuold have prevented sale of any United Slates rice to southeastern Asia countries and any sales at below the domestic price. After the decision became known, Oathings told the House that Secretary of Agriculture Benson was to be commended for his 'firm stand" against "dictates of our State Department." night to File Claim The House recently passed and sent to the Senate a bill to give Raymond George Palmer, (2020 Marshall St.) Little Rock, the right to file a claim with the Bureau of Employes Compensation for the loss of his eyesight. Palmer, » reserve officer, was a Civilian Conservation Corps commander In the 1930's. During that period he began having eye trouble. In IMS he was called to active service but subsequently became blind and was given an honorable discharge. Because he had served less than 30 days with the Army — other than with the CCC — the bureau declined to consider his case. The House Judiciary Committee told the House that by ail the rules of equity and justice, Palmer, who had served his country 11 years, should be permitted to submit his claim. The bill was introduced by Rep. Hays. Rabbits Need Woodchucks BEAVER ISLAND, Mich. Ifl — The Beaver Island Game Club has nsked the State Conservation Department to ship > supply of woodchucks to this Lake Michigan island to dig holes tor rabbits. That's right. It. seems there are few cottontail rabbits here because there aren't many holes In which they can live. Rabbits don't dig their own; they borrow holes from other animals.

France, Lack of State Money May Halt Construction of Armories LITTLE ROCK if) — The Arms- wants to build 14 National Guard armories In Arkansas, but the state probably will not be able to provide the necessary matching money. An Arkansas National Guard officer said here yesterday that "H is a little matter of money" that will prevent the construction of the buildings at points throughout the state. Col. Ernest McDaniel, chief of supply for the Arkansas National Guard, said the veto of a $300,000 appropriations bill by Gov. Orval Faubus meant the end of the program as far as Arkansas is concerned. Information on the Army construction program became public Monday in Washington. The army also wants to construct eight ar- Gen.

McDaniel said there was a possibility that some of the designated cities would try to rnise matching funds for the federal grants on their own. McDaniel declined to specify which of the cities were planning to raise their own funds. "I don't feel free to say," he said. "It would put them on the spot."
