The Senate Public Works Committee has estimated that roads within the federal-aid program need 35 billion dollars worth of immediate improvements, and several attempts to increase the two- billion dollar program were planned. Already it is larger than President Eisenhower asked. The federal government is now spending at about a 650-million-dollar annual rate to help keep up the national highway system. The Public Works Committee, which approved the proposed program, said highway improvement has gone ahead "at a much slower pace" than the increase in autos and trucks. Begin 1955 The proposed increased spending would not take effect until the fiscal year starting July 1, 1955. Sen. Ferguson (R-Mich), chairman of the GOP Policy Committee in the Senate, announced he would seek to boost the federal aid program from two to four billions over the two-year period. Eisenhower asked 875 million dollars a year, the amount authorized by the House. Both the house and senate bills include a new method of allocating federal funds to the states for what is called the interstate highway system. The allocation for this portion of the program is now based on several factors, including the area of the state and the number of main roads it has. The new system would allocate half the interstate highway funds in that manner and the other half wholly on the basis of population. Obituaries H POLIO (Continued from Page 1) factory vaccine." Some of the tests which shewed live virus, Dr. Salk said, "were actually conducted as checks on the manufacturing processes and it was known in advance the results would not be satisfactory En route to Ann Arbor, Mich., to attend a meeting on influenza, Dr. Salk added at Detroit: "It is nice to have the advice of sidewalk superintendents—like Winchell—and we will give his criticism our attention, but this is actually a misrepresentation of what we are doing. "The vaccine is tested for effectiveness and margin of safety. Before use, the vaccine is passed for •afety by three leading health groups." Dr. Salk has inoculated his own children among about 5,000 given the vaccine prepared in his own laboratory. Dr. Van Riper said Dr. Balk also has inoculated about '9,000 children with vaccine made commercially. Winchell also said that the "Michigan State Medical Society has refused approval, the first •tate to do so. The polio foundation is trying to kiU the story — but the TJ. S. Public Health Service will confirm this in about 10 days. Why wait 10,days?" Ifo* Michigan Medical Society IMC not made any public announcement. (Continued from Page after a nationwide wave of apprehension set off by the terrifying results of the recent American bomb experiments in the Pacific. Doubt Experts Both Churchill .and his Laborite critics already are on record in" favor of a face-to-face meeting of the big power government heads, talks which Sir Winston himself first proposed 11 months ago. Recently, however. Churchill has appeared to be in some doubt that the present international atmosphere is right for such a meeting. He wasexpecte d to ask the House today to leave to the government's judgment the timing of any approach to Eisenhower and Malen- kov. To bolster Churchill's renewed defense of the American bomb tests, the U.S. President was reported to have sent him a personal message giving all information on the H-bomb permitted by American security laws. Churchill was plainly embarrassed by his lack of such a briefing when he had to defend the U.S. policies in the House last week. Refusing Laborite demands that he use his influence toward having the American tests halted, Churchill said then that continued development of the hydrogen bomb was essential to the defense of the free world. The United States, Britain and France on Saturday proposed an early meeting of the U.N. Disarmament Commission, w cih h deals with controls of arms including the atomic and hydrogen bombs. Washington observers said the proposal was timed to take some of the sting out of the Laborite attack in today's debate. Defense Problem Cited SAN FRANCISCO WV-Val Peterson, federal civil defense administrator, says despite much progress, "there is no civil defense or- ganisation in America equal to the problem we face." He said it is the job of local civil defense authorities to face that problem and make ready for it. Crazy Mixed-Up Bailiff NEW YORK UP) — An absentminded bailiff slipped handcuffs on a woman turned over to him outside Coney Island Magistrate Court and led her off to the court cell. Twenty minutes later she was turned loose when word got to the judge, who had ordered her out of his courtroom for interrupting during a hearing. Back in court she cried hysterically, "Now I'm a convict — and I came here to have somebody arrested who hit me in the eye!" Rites Tomorrow in Steele for Lt.

Son of a farmer who also operated a saw mill and a store near Campbell, Mo., Mr. McCutcheu began his career in the entertainment field shortly before World War I as an advance man for Miller Bros. 101 Ranch Shows. In 1916, when his father's health failed, he returned to Campbell, where he and his wife, the former Miss May Dark, were married. His first theater was the one in Campbell, which he bought in 1917. He sold the Campbell theater two years later and moved to Charleston after buying the theater there. In 1924, he bought the Malone Theater in Sikeston and the next year leased the Home Theater — now known as the Roxy — in Blytheville. He leasea the old Gem Theater from S. S. Stearnberg in 1926 and later purchased the theater site, which was then located where the Ritz is now. After acquiring his Blytheville interests, Mr. McCutchen formed a partnership with the I .W. Rodgers circuit of Cairo. HI., which owns theaters in Missouri and Illinois. Included in this partnership were the Ritz, Roxy and Gem theaters and Starvue and Cotton Boll drive- in theaters at Blytheville. He retained full ownership of the Malone, Rex and Sikeston Drive-In theaters in Sikeston, and the McCutchen and Gay theaters in Charleston.

RefugeeReceives Major Award For Heart Research Hungarian Fled To America In 1947 By FRANK CAREY AP Science Reporter CHICAGO (m— A major American scientific honor has been awarded a scientist who fled here in 1947 from Hungary to do research that might be "no damn good at .all." He is Dr. Albert Szent-Gyorgi, 60, who late yesterday was presented the Albert Lasker Award of the American Heart Assn.—in- cluding a $1,000 prize—for "distinguished achievement" in the field of research concerned with heart and blood-vessel diseases. Specifically, he was honored for pioneering studies leading to a better understanding of the action Of muscles—a contribution which the AHA declared had provided new clues to the mechanism of heart failure and "removed . . . many barriers to the study of normal and diseased hearts." The gentle, friendly, gray-haired researcher had won the Nobel Prize in medicine in 1937 for his isolation of vitamin C. And he had won other honors for other achievements. But, all that was behind him when he came to this country in 1947 from Hungary to continue work on muscle research that had been interrupted by World War II. "When settling in this country," he said in accepting the Lasker award, "I had the greatest difficulty in finding adequate financial support for my research, because wherever I asked for help I was asked for a project of what I was going to do. "My answer had to be, 'I don't End to Segregation Would Cost State $20-30 Million, Ford Says LITTLE ROCK 1*1 — Education Commissioner Arch Ford said yesterday that outlawing of segregation by the U. S. Supreme Court would mean an immediate expenditure of 20 to 30 million dollars lor equalization of Arkansas school facilities. Ford said the public school system also would have to plan an increase of 10 percent to equalize salaries. The education commissioner, interviewed on KATV's "Weekend Press Conference", said he was ! concerned but not alarmed by the issue. "I oeneve we can work the situation out," he said. "The average Negro child will have better school facilities than th white child, if mandatory equalization comes to Arkansas, because Negroes predominate in richer areas," he declared. ' Ford noted that the state has no problem of equalization on the college level but cited the first ! through 12th grades as the primary know, that's why it is research.' "And when I was asked what it (might be) good for—that is, the research I was doing — I had to answer: " 'No damn good at all."' But he declared that eventually a Chicago meat packing and research firm. Armour & Co., proved to be "the only one who was willing to give me money and turn me loose." And it was that firm's, "farsighted generosity that enabled me to do the work" that led to the heart association's award, he said. 'j'he scientist, now director of the Institute for Muscle Research at Woods Hole, Mass., told reporters that studies under way by himself and his colleagues might eventu- ially lead to an "approach" to a better understanding of such elusive ailments as muscular dys- i trophy. problem. Ford said that Arkansas teachers today are receiving $22,200.000 more in salaries than they did 10 years ago. Emphasizing progress in the school system, the commissioner said, the average millage has gone from 18 mills in 1949 to 35 mills in 1954. Members of the press panel were Gordon Freeman, managing editor of the Pine Bluff Commercial; Ken Kaufman of the Arkansas Democrat and Carl Bell of the Associated Press. DULLES (Continued from Page 1) 1955—a cut of a billion dollars from last year. The details may not reach Congress until next month. Dulles testified publicly on the broad range of overseas operations and elaborated with security information afterward in a closed session. One of Dulles' major tasks may be to convince Congress to wait longer for France and Italy to ratify the European Defense Community. Acting Chairman Vorys (R-Ohio) says the current daily hearings, lasting through April 15, are intended to give the committee a broad look at foreign affairs. It probably will consider actual foreign aid legislation next month. In general, Congress is expected to support greater aid for Indochina and the rest of Southeast Asia. Both the President and Dulles insist this area must be saved. But Rep. Gordon (D-I11) said Congress "is getting more impatient with European allies that don't do enough for themselves." (Continued from Page l) •quished his chairmanship of the group and said he would not vote on any issues connected with the inquiry, but he has insisted on examining witnesses. He also proposed that Army counsel be allowed to cross-examine him. Mundt said last night he had almost persuaded the Wisconsin senator to give up his right to cross- examine, but that the near-under- j standing was upset by the a^point' ment of Joseph N. Welch of Boston to handle the Army's case. Sears is to be questioned about Boston news stories quoting him in 1952 as praising McCarthy for "a great job" in driving Communists out of government and hailing his re-election. Sears said at a news conference here last Thursday, in response to a question, that he had never taken a stand publicly or privately on McCarthy or "McCarthyism." Democrats indicated their concern was not so much with what Sears may have said about McCarthy in the past as with the question whether he was completely frank. Mundt said that Sears' answer to the question at the news conference here "could or could not indicate lack of candor." In view of the old news clippings that since have come to light, Mundt said that "obviously he (Sears) has taken a stand on McCarthy." But the senator added there was nothing in the record, as far as he knew, to indicate that Sears had done so in regard to •'McCarthyism".

Corbin is the new president of the Arkansas Education Association. Corbin defeated Mrs. Amy Jean Greene, professor at Henderson State Teachers College in Arkadelphia, 4,230 to 3,420 for the presidency in a vote conducted at 13 district meetings Friday. Corbin will succeed A. L. Whitten of Marianna on July 1. Woman Is Treated After House Burns Letha Cole, Negro woman, was treated for shock Saturday following the burning of a three-room frame residence where, she lived at 1718 Herman. Her condition was reported as satisfactory by the attending physician. She was not at home when the fire occurred and fainted as she left the home of a neighbor after learning about the fire. The house was destroyed. The fire department was called to 407 Lilly Saturday when a kerosene stove caught fire. No property damage was reported.
