PAGE 2- THE BAYTOWN SUN. THURSDAY. 'JANUARY 21, 1954 Congressional Roundup -Battle Over St. Lawrence Seaway Shifts To House _ Stock Quotes Special Session To Be Called On Teacher Pay Hike 21 _<U>)— "ine o-i-vutii-^u wo."-*-*-- «* "r t - • Lawrence seaway project shifted to the House Thursday after the controversial measure cleared its Senate hurdle Wednesday night. Bv a 51 to 33 vote, the Senate passed ana" sent to the House legislation authorizing the United States to'join with Canada in a multi-million dollar project to open the St. Lawrence River to ocean-going vessels. The plan calls for a 27-foot navigation channel from the Atlantic Ocean to the Great Lakes. Senate seaway advocates were jubilant. But House backers said they face an uphill fight which, one of them said, could be won only with President Eisenhowers help. The measure first goes .to the House Public Works committee which last year refused to even consider the seaway bill until the Senate acted. Rep. John Blatnik (D-Minn.) said only three of the 16 Republicans on the committee are committed to the proposal. Blatnik said it would take a. "personal appeal from the President" to get the measure through the committee. Mr. Eisenhower has endorsed the seaway proposal and his administration backs it to the hilt. The seaway proposal was first presented to "Congress in 1923. It has been bitterly fought by Gulf and Atlantic ports and some railroad and mining interests. ; Other developments: AIR ACADEMY The House was expected to approve a bill authorizing the Air Force to • set up its own service academy comparable to the Army's West Point and the Navy's Annapolis; The measure does not name the site of the academy. FARJI House action was also likely on a. dual-purpose "bill to boost this year's : cotton allotment by almost 3.5 million acres and give potato growers limited government price protection. The Senate, which has approved a different version of the bill, will have to pass on House changes, but the measure probably will be the first piece of major to clear the ne\v Con- COFFEE Sen. Guy 3tf. Gillette (D-Iowa) said much of the blame for the sharp increase in coffee prices falls on speculators and called for quick action on his proposal to put the coffee exchange under strict regulation. UN-AMERICAN Chairman Harold H. Velde of the House Un-American Activities committee stepped up the activities of his Red-hunting group- in hoses it would quiet internal feuding. He said an investigation would be made of the 2,200 "security risks" fired by the administration to determine how many were actually subversives. And he named a sub-committee to look into alleged Red activities in the Albany, N. Y., area.

"There will be* a. special session in the not too distant future," Shivers told newsmen Wednesday after a joint committee, agreed unanimously on a compromise calling for the pay raise and major changes in financing for the state's schools. The 25-member committee was named 'by Shivers and the Texas State Teachers Association, which were in partial disagreement on the question during the 1953 Legislature. In addition to the pay -raise, the compromise called for: 1. A change in local school district contributions to the foundation school program from a flat $45 million .per year to 20 per cent of' the cost. The state would pay the other 80 per cent. 2- A $100 "building allowance" credit for each teacher for local districts, deducting that from the district's contribution to the foun- GENUINE SPEIDEL PHOTCMDENT BANDS Regular 17-95 THIS WEEK ONLY! .. . ..AT - ; MAYFA1R JEWELERS The House ot Diamonds FORT WORTH, Jan.' 21 —UP— Livestock: Cattle 800. • Fully steady; some cows stronger; commercial and good slaughter steers and yearlings 15-20; utility cows, 10.50-12; canners and cutters, 7-10.50; bulls, 10-14; stockers scarce.

Eisenhower smashed a bottle of champagne across the 'bow of the Nautilus Thursday and launched the world's first atomic - powered submarine into a new era of war or peace. , The nation's first lady sent the $55 million craft gliding into the arms of waiting tugs, ushering in an age when the might atom will be put to work in homes and industrial plants, as woli as in battle. The Nautilus will mark the first practical use of atomic energy for .propulsion' Mrs. Eisenhower, the first presidential wife to christen a submarine, stood 'on a special platform. As she smashed a bottle of champagne—which officials took pains to point out was. an American, vintage—she said the traditional words, "I christen thee, USS Nautilus." Aboard the craft for its initial ride were commander Eugene P. Wilkinson, the Nautilus' first skipper, and several officers and men of his crew. Speakers hailed the sub, plans for which were started six - years ago, as a vast stride 1 forward for mankind. Admiral Robert B- Carney, chief of naval operations, said "the Nautilus is a symbol of United States determination to fight, when and if fighting becomes necessary."

Moore is almost fanatical when it comes to waste, particularly if it involves wood. Moore, who operates the Akron Basket Co., complains of the mountains of shavings and sawdust going to waste. "Over half the nation's wood in-, vontory now ends as waste materials," he estimated recently. Moore is working on two means of eliminating some of this waste. One calls for the utilization of wood scraps, shavings and sawdust in production of wood molasses. "Sugar is a by-product of wood fiber, he explained, "and there is a good use for everything we now consider waste, if we only find the use. 'Wood Molasses already has been accepted in 35 states as a food fit for animal consumption." The other waste-eliminator, still in the planning stage, too, would take the residue loft from making wood .roolasses for use as an ingredient in a rubber material suitable for road building.

Trinity Valley Assn., said he thinks the Feb. 15 deadline means that the- engineers will present the new plan to Congress at that time and will ask-for the'neces- sary appropriation. * The project, part of an overall long-range plan for developing the Trinity river, was approved by the Rivers and Harbors committee of the House in 1944. The canal was completed to Anahuac shortly thereafter, but was held up when farmers complained that the channel allowed salt water to back up in the river and encTanger their rice crops. 1 The Army engineers held a Jiearjng in Liberty in 1950 to work out a plan to please both canal backers and rice farmers. A three-point modification plan including a salt-water barrier was presented at the hearing, but approval of any such plan was held up by the outbreak of the Korean war. This is the first major development since then. The Chambers - Liberty County Navigation cTistrict, headed by Judge Guy Jackson of Anahuac, has spearheaded the plan since its inception, and will have the task of securing the necessary right- of-way when Congress gives .the go-ahead. General Tire Urges Income Tax Slash WACO, Tex., Jan.- 21 —OP)— A tire company president said Wednesday his firm would increase its common stock dividends 25 per cent this year, if the government will cut income taxes on dividends 20 per cent. William O'Nell, President of General Tire anil Rubber Co., made the offer after General's board of directors held its first meeting in Texas. He said he was confident other companies also would increase their dividends, if the tax is cut. . "The government's present double taxation on dividends is discouraging risk capital to the point where business expansion is suffering," O'Ncil said. Island is Too Rough Even For Wolf Pack HOUGHTON, Mich., Jan. 21 — (IP) isle Royale, often referred to as the "wildest place" in the United States, is too wild even for wolves. The vacation island, located 50 miles off Michigan's Upper Peninsula in Lake Superior, attracts died-in-the-wool sportsmen and true outdoor enthusiasts—not the tourist types. Animals of many types roam at will in its wilderness. Their con-- tacts with the human race are few and far between. In fact, during the winter months, the island is devoid of all human life. Only an occasional aerial patrol breaks the spell of nature-in-the- raw while thick ice covers Lake Michigan between December and April. In 1952, game officials picked it as the spot to turn a group of wolves back to their natural habitat. Accustomed to the fruits of civilization they enjoyed while in captivity, the animals balked at penetrating the inner reaches of the wooded island in search of food. They finally were removed and shipped back to the mainland when game officials could not coax them away from tourist cabins where they feasted on garbage and other refuse.
