Dwight » Eisenhower has agreed that only an American officer will command Greek armies assigned to North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) forces. This tentative agreement was retried after the NATO supreme commander conferred at length with U. Gc ,,. Theodore Grifioropoulos chief of the Greek national defense staff.

But he added: Highly Desirable—To Them "If they could get Russian teams down to look at our en nip merit that would be highly desirable from their point of view." The Allied proposal provides that neutral teams should make Inspections to "properly insure" that neither side Is introducing "new equipment during a truce. However, lire • teams would not be allowed.,.to check "secret designs or character-' istics of any combat aircraft, ar niorett vehicles, weapons or ammtt nifion," The Reds said the u.

Ark-Mo President Charles Czc-schin said today, however, that the utility wants a hearing at an earlier date to "clear the atmosphere" so the company may proceed with it-s gas system plans without further delay.

Application for a hearing be- iore the Missouri PSC was filed in November. 1950, but that a hearing was not held until July 18. 1951.

The council decided to leave all the details of fitting Greek and Turkish forces into NATO up to Eisenhower. Money Is Lacking Another touchy problem facing Eisenhower in Greece is the lack of money to maintain present Greek military strength. The Greek staff reportedly told Eisenhower today the cost of keeping 10 divisions ready for combat, plus the price of expanding naval and air forces, is a punishing burden. The Greeks said -11 per cent of their 550 million dollar budget for the year ending ne.vl June i goes to defense, and that defense spending amounts to 12 per cent of the Greek national income. They contended this is one of the highest defense spending ratios of any NATO member. U.S. to Spend 17.6 Per Cent NATO executives agreed last month that In the next fiscal year the United States plans to spend 11.6 per cent of its national income for defense, Britain J2.B per cent and France 11 per cent.

' Would Be False Economy, Truman Says WASHINGTON (AP) — President Tmman asked a critical Congress today to vole every penny of his $7900000,000 new global foreign aid program to meet a Soviet threat against the "survival of civilization." Tonight the President, fully aware of mounting congressional ire over foreign aid spending, will go on every major radio nntl television network to carry his plea to the people. Sound Farm Practices More Vital than Goals Mississippi County farmers, some 150 of them, were told today to let good land management and sound production practices govern their 1052 cotton acreage, Department of Agriculture goals notwithstanding. General cotton outlook was cover-t- ed by three experts in the first session of the meeting, which continued with an afternoon session at the Court House here. Appearing on IhLs morning's program were C. D. Christian, Arkan>as Extension Service District a- ient; 1. Ritchie Smith, National Traffic Violation Crackdown Set Graves Aims Drivel At Speeders, Mis-Use Of Right Turn Rule Chief of police Cecil Graves said this morning he has ordered a crackdown on violators of the city's traffic- ordnances. Ife said he has ordered police to crackdown on speeders, "flagrant misuse" of the i«ni-i%ht-on-rcd- light ordinance ami failure of persons to report to police headquarters after receiving a parking nieler ticket. ^, lij fanner -cnn't at least - a f course, we are ahvavs on (he •i at 90 per cent of parity. , 0 okout for speeders." he snf d "bVit both U.S. and world carry-overs of the 1051 crop are low. The U.S., he said, will show about a 2,00a,000-bale carry-over from its 1951 crop. "In view of current situations, 1 think we can expect a very sensitive cotton market in 1952" he slated.' A cotton crop is a bad risk, he /to", if tli^ fanner • can't' at least break even at 90 per cent of parity. Mr. Smith predicted the size of the 1D52 crop will depend largely on labor availability and market conditions, and not necessarily on De- j partmcnt of Agriculture culture goals. Would Hunt Foreign Markets Danger of a small U.S. crop, he said, lies in the fact that "it would tend if) undermine the foreign mar- (Scc FARMS on T'ajje i) rs." he said, "but ,ve are going to Intensify enforcement of spccdinj; limits," -Speed limits uithin + Talk of withdrawing lo the seduclivencss," (he President said, "because it would seem to relieve us of the contributions we are now making to collective defense." Withdrawing Is Suicide But he said the adoption of sue), a policy would bo a "mandate for national suicide." He said tile money he is asking for would be spent to send arms to America's Allies in Europe, to build up Allied nations in the Middle and Par East, to help European countries manufacture their own arms, and to raise the living standards of Red-threatened natioas in Africa and Asia. Not a single dollar should be cut out of HIE proposed program, he said, lest this nation be guilty of a "false economy" of "tco little and too late." Four lira-Mils Given In n special 1,500-word message, Mr. Truman anticipated the attacks of critics and economy advocates, lie built lii-s argument for carrying on the Mutual Security Program around four basic reasons which, he set forth In words: "First, the plain fact is that we cannot achieve lasting' security for ourselves except in association with other nations.
