School to Begin In Blytheville On September 8 Registration This Week for Pupils In Senior High PETROPOLIS. Brazil, AUR. 25. lUPj—Nineteen American republics wrestled with terms of the proposed InterAmerican defense treaty today without the participation of Ecuador, which technically was eliminated as a bcr by its weekend revolution. The ix)sition of Ecuadorian For-! eign Minister Jose Vincente Tru- jiilo was unclear. An announcement from Quito said Col. Carlos Manclicno. president of the revolutionary regime, had requested Trujillo to keep his office. The other 19 states, however, had not recognised Mancheno's regime. Trujillo postponed a scheduled press conference 24 hours until he could learn from Quito and from the other foreign ministers exactly where he stood. Committees drafting the treaty met today y/itli Ecuadorian delegates. The United States was campaigning vigorously to prevent the treaty from becoming an anti- Communist pact or undermining tlie United . Nations charter. Vandenbcrg Carries Lead The three - day fight by the United States in a small subcommittee started out on the long road to consideration by all of the 29 nations at work on the treaty. Sen. Arthur Vandenberg R Midi., the United States delegate who had carried the brunt of the campaign almost continuously since Friday, hoped lo complete the sub-committee work today. That would clear the way for bringing the basic issue on which the United states and Argentina differ to the full committee not lal- cr than tomorrow. After more than a week of debating what the conference would not consider, it now was buricc deep , in technical details of the projxjscd treaty. Vaiictenberg's committee of 20 nations got so involved last week that it appointed a sub-committee of 14 which in turn appointed sub-committee of eight, which in --'turn, appointed a "sub-commit let of five plus the .chairman. Vandenberg habitually ...referred to tlie smallest group as the sub- sub-commlttee. ' That group acted on the basic principle which Argentina originally opposed—an attack by "any" nation on an American state is an nttack on all, and each obligates itself to help in meeting the attack. But it must run the gamut of the two other sub-committees, the full committee and finally the plenary session. Rcpnlar classes in Blyllicvlllc U.S. Seeks New Strength for UN Assembly I-AKE SUCCESS, N. Y., Aug '>5 (UPt— The United states began a. campaign today to pump new strength anrt authority into the United Nations General Assembly, but the task was handicapped by tlic American record of cold-shouldering the UN's machinery. The campaign was aimed at pushing the UN Security council to the sidelines for now and using Ihc 55-nation assembly to get action in the cases where the western powers have been blocked in the council by Russia's great power veto. The plan was hampered however, by the resentment and cynicism still smouldering in s o , nc quarters of the UN and its diplomatic corps because of the way America skirled the UN with such major projects as the Truman doctrine and the Marshall plan Some quarters pointed also to at least half-a dozen other cases where the United stales appeared to show a wavering f a i lh ,„ u efforts" a " C5irC '° minimizc 'ts Four Injured in Wreck On South Highway 61 •A six-year-old Murphysboro 111 boy is in Walls Hospital today receiving treatment lor injuries received Saturday night In an'auto wreck on South Highway 61 In which three others received minor injuries He 15 Clarence Herbert Thompson' who suffered heart injuries.
