', Senate Okays Bill to Kill Farm Penalty WASHINGTON, Sept. 16 (fl>>The Senate has approved a proposal of Senator McClellan (D-Ark) to relieve cotton »nd sugar beet growers of about »250.000 of penalty payments due because Mexican laborers they Imported cannot be accounted for. The Senate has accepted an amendment McClellan proposed to a supplementary money bill to wipe out bond forfeitures claimed by the immigration and naturalization service. The amendment still must be accepted by 'the House. Farmers are required to post bonds for each laborer they Import from Mexico, and present law provides for (lie bonds lo be forfeited it the farmers can not prove the workers returned to Mexico. Under McClellan's amendment, the bonds would be forfeited only if the government proved the missing workers remained here after March 31, 1950. McClellan said that about 110,000 workers contracted for a year ago, some 12,000 have not been accounted for. lie said most of them returned across She border without checking with immigration officials. In Arkansas, the senator said, some 2,000 workers are unaccounted for. out of 17.500 brought iii for the cotton harvest last year. Man'i Whisky Excuse: Likes 'Cold Drink' LITTLE ROCK. Sept. 16.

Scotch Islander Is Best Dressed DI5S MOINES -</pj_ A Scot on lonely Tristan da Cunha Island In the south Atlantic will soon be' the best dressed man on the island, thanks to an Iowa utilities executive and an Iowa banker. Last December the cruise ship Caronia anchored off the island sometimes called the "world's loneliest outpost." Ben Webster, Des Molnes, secretary of the Iowa Utilities Association, was one of the few passengers who risked the rough trip ashore in one of the small boats in which the islanders rowed out to meet the ship. Webster's "na- live" oarmate, William Gordon ilass, confided the thing he wanted most in the world was a new suit of clothes. This Webster promised to send. Back In Des .Molnes, Webster sired up Albert Robertson; first vice-president of the lowa-Des Molnes National Bank and Trust Company. Webster knew he had the problem solved. "Got an extra suit?" Webster aiked the medium- built banker Hence when JVilliam Gordon Olabr, opens his soon-to-arrive package on tiny Tristan da x Cunha Island, he'll find i suit to fit. When Napoleon was exiled to St. Helena 135 years ago, a British garrison was stationed «n Tristan da Cunha. Aftei a year's duly the troops were withdrawn. But seven of the garrison, mostly Scots, elected to remain. Tlie island's 250 "present Inhabitants answer to just seven family names and are descendants of those seven soldiers and their imported wives. It's a good b:t that none of them ever had such a conservative, suit before. Israeli Exit Rushed TEL AVIV.
