(ARK.) COtlRIER XEWI APHUL i, GOP Leaders Predict President's Housing Plan Will Be Accepted WASHINGTON (AP) — Republican leaders predicted tocto President Eisenhower's embattled housing program would emerge from the House just about the way the Presi desrt asked for it. They commented after the House 2. Permit FHA loans on new or and sent to the Senate late old houses to run for 30 years. 3. Lift the ceiling on FHA insured loans lor horn* repairs and yesterday a bill, carrying $8,566. JLlt,?6i for housing afencies, the Atomic Energy CommiMion, the Yeteran* Administration, TV A and other independent federal agencies foe Hit fiscal year .starting July 1 tfce bill was stripped of any new authority for the fovernment to build new low-rent public housing project*. Eisenhower and top Home leaders accepted the inter pretattoa that they could build 16,000 new unite next year under previous acts. This view was disputed by other veteran OOP members. House leaders called up for debate today a wide-ranging bill carrying out Eisenhower's propos- ata for slum clearance and easier loan terms for buying or improving home*. Wo conclusive voting is likely before tomorrow. House Speaker Martin (R-Mass) '•aid Republicans would sponsor an amendment to this bill to auth- orise construction of 35,000 'more public housing units in the fiscal y«ar starting July 1, 1955. Eisenhower had requested authority to build 35.000 units each year for the next four years—a total of 140,000. But Martin 'said authority to b»fld 70,000 units over the next two years would be satisfactory to tb ^administration, with the program for the other two years to be considered later. Chairman Wolcott (R-Mich) of the House Banking Committee, which approved the over-all nous- toe bill, said he was confident President'! many housing proposals. The bill thing*: would, among other l. Permit th« President to increase limit* on FHA home mort- fages. (Continued from Page 1) kins Clarence MeMn, Hurshel Trotter. J. T. Johnson, Kenneth McMillan, 8. E. Austin, Johnny Boyles. E.

'Greatest Show Opens at Garden World's Biggest Circus Begins 70th Season NEW YORK UP) —- The "greates show on earth" opened its 70th sea son last night in Madison Square Garden, as glittering and extravagant as ever and studded with new acts. But all the old standbys were there too — they'll be in the show as long as there is a Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus. Remember the spine - chilling high-wire performance, with no net and ending up with a bicycle ride 60 feet above the tanbark? Or the graceful and thrilling somersaults and flips of the trapeze artists, including the frighten- ng plunge to the net below at the end? New Act* This year there are some of the most brilliantly costumed pageants ihe circus has ever presented—one s a dreamy mock trip to the moon: another is a cavalcade of nursery stories; the finale is billed ,s a tribute to the United Nations and President Eisenhower. One of the most heart-stopping acts is a .new one, called the four locks. Three of the nocks scamper up spindly, swaying 70-foot wooden ipars, set up about li* feet apart. Then, as they sway in sickening circles on the bending poles, they stand on their heads or hang by Report Card By MELBA MARION (School Correspondent) The science department of BHS offers three courses, chemiatary, physics, and biology.

Hall sent the class folders about Arkan- j sas, and each fourth grader wrote to a city in the state asking for information about that city. Most students have received answers. The fifth grade's recently begun study of Mexico has become interesting because of Mexico's nearness to us and the great differences between our manner of living and the Mexicans'. Some films also have made the unit more interesting and have furnished additional-information. The sixth graders are studying the colonization of America. Films about the early colonies have helped them to understand things that otherwise might seem remote.
