Our Best Allies TURKS WANT TO GET BETTER ACQUAINTED WITH AMERICA By PHIL NEWSOM United Press Foreign Analyst The Turks aren't satisfied merely to be among the most enthusiastic of the United States' allies They ."also think everyone should get better acquainted. So, later this month, Turkish President Celal Bayar will be arriving in New York for the first Visit of a Turkish chief of state to the United States. His advance man who already is here is Dr. Halim Alyot, director- feneral of Turkey's department of information. Alyot is a heavyset, relaxed man with a dark comolex- ion and iron-gray hair. When he talks, it-frequently is with a Turkish cigaret stuck in the corner of his mouth. The smoke makes him squint through heavy horn.:rimmed glasses. He talks with remarkable frankness, only occasionally warning that some particular item is 'off the record," The Turks do, and through geographical necessity must, continue to live next to the Russians. Most exciting new car of all! lew54 DODGE New en Display •M • b*n*r 4*«! from yow ctoprndoM* Dmffl* dwttor They feel they know the Russian^ well. The questions and Alyot's answers about Russia ran like this- What about the Russian peace offensive?: "At', the moment the Russians are in the midst of. an internal crisis. It may be that the new regime in the Kremlin needs time to establish itself at home. "But—Russian objectives'/do not change. We have lived next to them for hundreds of years. Their foreign • policies are the same how under the Communists as they were under, the Czars." Can we ; gain anything by negotiating with them?, "We should never lose any opportunity for peaceful negotiation —no matter what the reason may be for a change in the Russian attitude." What about Russian attempts to renew close ties with the Yugoslavs? This. one. the Turkish information, chief answered cautiously with the: reminder that he neither makes nor speaks for Turkish foreign policy. .The gist,,however, was that the accords reached by .Turkey. Greece an<j Yugoslavia have materially strengthened Mediterranean defen- 'ses. The Turks do not believe that Communist Yugoslavia and: Communist Russia; ever again will renew their former close ties.

Dry Spell May Slash California's Income By THOMAS MCCARTHY you've really got something." SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 12 —UP Baxter said.these /actors played THE"BAYTOWN'SUN.TTUESDAYj JANUARY —One of the longest dry spells in California history Monday threat ened to slash the state's $2.5 billion farm income and turn millions of acres of national forestland into a year-round- fire hazard. Anxious farmers and foresters scanned rainless sKles as the drouth raised a threat to rangeland and water well as crops and tall timber. But weatner forecasters said rain throughout the state; would be 'light" through January. The. U.S. Weather Bureau said last year was the driest on record in the • hard-hit Los Angeles area and thp rainless early day.; of 1954 were "unprecedented" there. The San Francisco area faces the driest season since 1918, forecasters say. and among the driest sine? 1849. The drouth is not serious as yet, according to state agricultural authorities, but will be within a matter of weeks unless rain lalls. Tbp- soils, subsoils and pasturelands are parched; oranges and lemons wheat, barley and oats already have suffered. The situation i s most serious in Southern California. The smallest December rainfall in 104 years was recorded in San Diego. Only .03 inches fell there last month and .08 in Los Angeles. "When you take those figures," said regional fire dispatcher E.L. Baxter, "add a dry summer, no fall rain and the normal December "devil" winds flowing over the > stures, orchards and forests the Majave desert, then pas fror a, great part in last month's 14,080- acre fire in the Mt. Wilson area which resulted in a $6 million loss in timber, homes and watershed George Scott, chief of'the state crop and livestock service, said "we haven't yet reached the point to become too alarmed, but we are seriously concerned. If we don't get rain, production will be reduced and in some parts' of the state water will ,be critical. "Southern California trees, particularly citrus and walnut, are either in want of water or being irrigated," Scott'said. "Tho drouth may cause the fruit to size UD-small. The grain is not seriously injured yet, but could use water." Breathing Machine With Brain Tested PROVIDENCE, R. I. Jan. 12 (W —A breathing machine with a built-in electronic brain is the invention of two Rhode Island doctor-brothers.' The device Is believed to more nearly duplicate natural breathing than any other artificial respirator. Drs. Meyer and Elihu Saklad of Rhode Island* Hospital said their machine has been used successfully on more than a score of patients during the past year and a half. However, they believe it should be subjected to further tests before it» true value can be determined. Thief Sends Loot Back With Apology ITHACA; N.
