"Ranger Jim" Martin, assistant alate forester, said It had reached a record $& million for the year, highest In. the history of the state.

He said 10 fires burned 256 acres In Southern Arkansas yesterday uhile four fires covering 93 acros were burning In the northern sector of the state. : Martin said the near-normal condition was attributed to milder winds, a dampening frost and the absence of hunters In the forests AH" hunting In the state has been banned by the state Game and Fish Commission until further notice.

Perhaps the general's program on that score was best spelled out when he met.,wllh Sen. Robert A Taft of Ohio in New York In September. Taft said then he couldh T l ajrree with all of'Elsenhower's foreign policy views, bul insisted their differences were only or "degrees. Yesterday Taft said in Cinclnnal that the tremendous majority given to Eisenhower' "shows the determination of the people to restore a government believing in American principles of liberty us op posed to the growing bureaucracy •pending and taxation of the so called Fair Deal." • "That feeling was intensified by the resentment' against the corrup tion in the Truman administration xnd - : the pro-Communist foreign policy^ which built up Russia brought about the Korean War,' he declared. T-H Should be Amended Taft'and Eisenliower ngrecd, tru Ohio senator said, that there sriou!< be some amendments to the Taft Hartley Act, but -lhat Its "basti principles" were sound. Taft said Eisenhower had ngreoi that there would be no discrimin atioh against persons who had s\lp ported h|s bid for the GOP nom! nation when the new Prestdcn made his appointments. These forthcoming appointmcnl ^- plus plans for his trip by Ai Force plane to Korea — wer occupying some of the Preslden' elect's time as he golted nivl fished at Augusta,' Ga. It was Cabinet picking time — the fjrst for any Republican in 2 years — and Eisenhower had wealth of material. He once sal he might appoint a qualified Negr to the Cabinet, but there was n Indication he still is intrigued b that Idea. •Among Cabinet prospects cmii 'be listed Govs. Thomas E. Dewe 'of New York, Sherman Adams New Hampshire, Earl Warren of California. Edward F. Am of Kansas, Dan Thornton of. Colorado, Sens. Henry Cabot Lodge Jr., defeated for re-election in Massachu sells, Frank Carlson of Kansas, Fred Scalon ol Nebraska, James Duff of Pennsylvania; John Foster Dulles, former State Department adviser; Paul G. Hoffman, former Marshall Plan director; retired Gen. Lucius Clay and GOP National Chairman Arthur Summerfield. Summerfield said he wants to go back to his automobile business in Michigan and Lodge said he would spurn a Cabinet post in favor of going back into the newspaper business. He formerly was a reporter. Eisenhower has talked about putting a woman in the Cabinet and Oveta Culp Hobby, co-publisher of the Houston. Tex., Post and Mary Lord, co-chairman of the Citizens for Eisenhower Committee, have been mentioned in this conneclion.

In comparison, h« said, the average expenditure for road and bridge construction and maintenance over the past five years haa been approximately $160,000. Thua, the county will be forced to dla- continue all road and bridge construction and concentrate on maintaining existing roads with funds that become available. Cities In the county will also be cut back, the judge said, because they ordinarily receive a portion ol the three mill tax revenues. In the break-down of these funds, he said that the county got about i44,- 000. Blythevllle about »11,000, Osceola about »8,000, and lesser amounts to Manila, Leachville and other cities. The three-mill county road tax was authorized In Amendment 3 to the state constitution.-This amendment was proposed by the General Assembly March 15, 1887, After ke- Ing approved by the voters, it was declared adopted Jan. 13, 1899 and so proclaimed by the governor. Musi lit. Vottrt On The vote approving Amendment 3 was 57,200 to 24.079. Amendment 3 permits a county court to levy the three-mill tax In addition to the five-mill county general tax. The Ihrec-mlll tax may be used only for road and bridge construction and maintenance, and must be approved by the voters. Tills approval must be obtained every two years at each general election of state and county officers. • Puloskl County found Itself in a slmllnr position two years ago when voters defeated the levy there, The county went for the past two ycnrs without this source of ronri revenue. The vote on the road tax had been close from the time the first boxes reported. Late yesterday,afternoon. It led by only about 40 votes when the Driver returns cam'e In and completely reversed the score. The Driver voters had snowed under the lax by an unofficial total of 406 to 9. Blythevllle voters, with th* exception of those in Wnrd Two. voted against the tax, ».< did voters in two Osceola and two Manila wards.

WHITNEY . catloru MOSCOW (*> — A Russian nole to Washington chargei! the United State* with an illegal »nd a'ggres- »iv« new blockade In Korean wa- t«ra and warns that the United State* must take the "responsibility for consequences."

The Russian note contended that establishment of the zone "represents a violation of the freedom of sea, trade In the open aea and also a violation of the rights of the USSR'' and other slates," It charged that the order was "a new act of aggression in the Far East," which "proves once again that the O.

The note said thai the Soviet government "does not. rccognixe as legal (he establishment by the U.S. government of the so-called defensive maritime zone around Korea, and lays upon the U, s. government the responsibility for the consequences of this new aggressive act and (or any damage that might be caused to the interests of the USSR."

Eisenhowers' personal Idea for a beginning is to go to Korea himself to siudy the situation there and search for a solution. • He put this . In the form of a pledge during his campaign and repeated It several times. He told Truman yesterday that he'Intends to notify "the secretary of defense the earliest possible notice of my proposed date of departure," Meanwhile, the general Is simply taking It easy. He has Mamie with him at the golf club. His daughter-in-law. Mrs. John Eisenhower and her three children, Dwlght David, 4, Barbara Anne. 3, 'and Susan, 9 months, an'd Mrs. J. S. Doud, his mother-in-law, ere also here. Secret Service on Hand There are some new members of his entourage too. Secret Service agents who are now charged with the responsibility for his safety moved In on the golf course before Eisenhower and his family even arrived. Other agents were on hand In New York almost as soon as his election was confirmed. Some rode with him on the lllght to Georgia. Eisenhower's arrival in Augusta was a carbon copy of the hundreds ol appearances he made while he was fighting for the presidency. About 1,500 persons were at the airport and .they gave him a warm cheer when he appeared in the door of the plane. Eisenhower shoo* hands all around with the same warmth he showed during the campaign, waved to the crowd, and went immediately to the motorcade waiting to take him to the golf club.
