Mr. Wooley said lie quit a year ago when he decided hat. men with dangerous socialistic deas had gained control in the department and In other areas of jovernment. "There has been a bitter struggle for power going on in the Department of Agriculture for 20 years, he said, and he compared the ideas and policies of some men who have gained, control with ideas expressed in the constitutio nof the Soviet Union. These men, Mr. Woolley stated, continue to say "nothing Is hap- jening here" and the people believe ;hem. By use of extensive quotations. Mr. Woolley maintained that these same men "desire to replace the present profit system with new economic order." Independent, free, non-governmental organizations, such as the Farm Bureau, were Riven as the answer to the socialistic trends seen by Mr. Wooley. The greatest need, and the biggest Job of the Farm Bureau, he said, is to find good substantial markets for farm commodities. The 90 pe rcent parity price support program, he said, began during World War II as an emergency measure and was to last for two years after the war to permit readjustment to peacetime, but now —seven years later—it stil legists The mandatory cotton price supports, he said, generate production of cotton in non-efficient areas wealing & surplus or carryover which keeps the price of cotton down to the support level whereas in the past when a good market existed, the price of cotton has always increased higher and more rapidly than the parity support Selling A Trap The • continuation of price sup ports, he stated, was the- work o Sw FARM BUREAU on rift 5 light' b~y' 1,500 "screaming Critew* oci'soldlers.

CIO Postpones It's Convention Meeting Is Delayed For Week Because Of Murray's Death PITTSBURGH I/P> —. The vice presidenls of the CIO today recommended a postponement of the group's Hth annual convention from Monday, Nov. 17 to Monday, Dec.?? because of the death of CIO PWresident Philip Murray. ' The convention had been slated to open next week In Los Angeles'. Instead the convention will-be held at.Atlantic City. •'...•' The vice president's recommendation Is expected to receive quick approval at a meeting of the CIO E: -cutlve Board In Pittsburgh on Frday, one day after Murray's funeral. 'The new contract calls for pay-* ment by Ark-Mo of $19,000 a year] In cash to the city In place of $10,000 a year In free street lighting furnished under the old agreement. When the agreement, in ordinance form, takes effect In 30 days,: the city will begin paying Us own street-lighting bill and will have left between $8,000 and $9,000 a year. • A street-lighting contract, giving the city Ihe same rales as the earlier agreement was based on. is scheduled to be acted on by the Council'at an adjourned session tonight. Xast night's meeting was carried over to tonight to consider also an ordinance calling an air base bond issue election. . Also on tonight's agenda Is action oh a bid by Lloyd L, Ward, Jr.. lo rent farm land at the air base for the-coining year. His request, for a renewed lease was based on a letter from the secretary of .the Air Force stating that this land will not be needed for reactivation of the base until 1954. Mr. Ward has leased this land for the past five years and rented It to farmers. His offer to lease the land for the next year Included a cash-In-advance rental of $25 an acre to;be paid the city. This is $5 an acre above Ihe -rent he has paid during the past five years. The Council delayed action on his . request in order to Include in a lease agreement a clause transferring liability In case of recapture from the city to the federal government. In the current lease, the cltv ii held liable if the government takes over the/land ,,- 'increase So B «new agreement voliuj- UtUy incnwing th* payment mafle to the city for allowing the utility to operate here replaces any privilege or license fees the city could Impose, Based on three and one-half per cent of gross revenue, the amount is scheduled to increase within three years to 'five per cent, according to E. D.!-Thomas. assistant to the president 'of Ark-Mo. •The Increased payment is being made, he explained, because of a franchise program the utility Is carrying out in Its service area. By obtaining franchises,in all towns it serves, it can obtain loans at reduced Interest rates and these savings are being used to increase fee payments. Ark-Mo was not seeking a new franchise last night, as it already has one to operate here. The franchises "are hieing sought primarily in Missouri cities. The ordinance passed last night is for five years and automatically extends Itself unless the city cancels the .-agreement. Payment of the Increase fee Is to be made monthly and will be based on the previous year's gross revenue. This agreement is retroactive to May, so when It takes effect in 30 days, the city will have some $4.500 coming for payments through October.

Smilh, angry at the atllludc of some wllnesscs, snapped at the close of the all-day hearing that it Is up to the U. N. "to help us purge il of spies and saboteurs." If that cannol be done, he said, the U. N. "ought nol to be allowed to sit in America." After (he hearing had adjourned until today, McCarran told newsmen he believed his committee's inquiry had brought about Lie's announcement of resignation on Monday. McCarran said Lie's statement of reasons for quitting reminded him of a Thanksgiving pumpkin. "It looked good," said McCarran, "but H was hollow." Interview PrinUd An Interview with Lie published today in three Scandinavian newspapers said he emphatically denied the McCarran inquiry influenced his decision to resign. The interview quoted Lie as saying he thought Russia's refusal to recognize him might have slood In the way of * Korean peace and that In the long run no man could bear Ihe kind of pressure put on him by the Russians. Moscow radio, which has ignored Lie since 1050, said last night Lie's resignation was a revelation of 'his complete political bankruptcy." Osceo/o'Mon Wounded In Korean Fighting OSCEOLA—Mrs. H. M.

There 'seemed little doubt today that nn ordinance calling the bond election would pass. While the exact amount of the' money needed Is still being determined, a figure of $100.000 is being-'used to base the city's action on. The Council will meet at 8 o'clock tonight nl City Hall.

Rancy of Raney, and Sons bond firm In.Little Rock. Two Alternative* Because the Air Force requires the additional ISO-acre tract north of the base—presumably for runway extension—and will not "swap" any other portion of the field for it, the city must acquire this land If the base is to be reactivated. Two alternatives were described lost night: the bond issue proposal and solicitation of Blytheville busl- nessinen and residents . for the money. ' A speclat.electlon can't be called until 30 days after' the' council takes action on the proposal. And,, Mr. Raney told' the" group last night.-It will be~fTo'm''65 to* 70 days after council action -that the money actually will be made available. ' r f Chamber Manager Worth Holder told the group that the Air Force "wants to know something" bv Dec. 1. , Contracts are to .be let shortly after the first of the year and E. B, David, who heads the Chamber's Industrial Committee, said that It is his understanding that the money appropriated for the air base must .be committed by mid- January. ] . Slay Pledge Money It was the general conclusion of Mr. Logan and other Chamber and civic officials .that, the money would have to be pledged by Bly- thevilie citizens. They 'would be freed pf their pledges if the bond issue managed to get over the election and other legal hurdles. . The major argument advanced in favored of the bom] plan was that It would be the more equitable method of raising the funds since the Issue would be retired by a tax on all real estate and personal proo- crty in the city.

AEC to Have Announcement Soon on H-Bomb Blast Reports By JACK RUTI,E1>GE WASHINGTON, W — The Atomic Energy Commission says it will have an announcement, apparently soon, In connection with snow balling reports the first American hydrogen bomb has been exploded In the South Pacific. Vivid eye-witness accounts of a purported "hell" bomb blast- some said It virtually sank an Enl- wclok Island—have been received In uncensored letters from U. S. sailors to Irlcnds In this country. An AEC spokesman said yesterday "we will make an announcement" as soon as the current series of atomic tests Is concluded. Until then, he said, "we will have absolutely no comment." Previously, AEC officials h»d In- dicated that for security reasons It might be years before anything would be made public about the new bomb. Descriptions of the recent explosion—H-bomb or super .atomic —agree that it was an awesome thing. One sailor wrote that he'watched the spectacle through binoculars from his ship 30 miles away. He saw a great chunk of one of the Enlwetok atolls "Just seem to melt away" In the fire that burned for six hours after the blast. Finally, he said, the entire mile- wide atoll "actually disappeared." Several eye-witness accounts have been published in recent days In Los Angeles, Lima, O., Michigan City, Ind., and Salt Lake City.
