BLYTHEVHLE (ARK.) COTJKIER NEWS FRIDAY, 'APRIL f, 1W4 rkansas isiative Group Meets Action Toktn On Bauxite, Administration LITTLE ROCK (AP) — The Arkansas Legislative Council committees, in separate actions, yesterday: 1. Prevented the bauxite industry from saying which agencies will be "acceptable" to make a survey of bauxite severance taxes, 2. Proposed a central administrative agency for the state's 29 independent licensing boards as a method of stricter legislative control, The bauxite industry has offered to pay for an investigation by an "independent, unbiased" individual engineer or engineering firm -The survey would include a comparison of itoe rate of severance taxes paid by the bauxite industry with Ifcose paid by other industries. The industry nominated a list of eight which, it said would be acceptable. But the committee directed that the council staff, in co-operation with geology representatives of the University of Arkansas and the Resources and Development Commission, also make nominations. Yesterday's committee action will postpone consideration of the proposal, by Rep. J. A. Gipson of Saline County, for at least a month. The council's Committee on Revenue ,and Taxation, in a move to bring licensing boards under stricter legislative supervision, directed the council research department to draw up a proposed bill creating an administrative agency for the boards. The proposal was the outgrowth of a study to determine if the boards need tighter controls. Committee members agreed generally that they do. Under the proposal, the boards would conduct examinations and authorize licenses for various professions and occupations, 'but the central agency would handle administration and records. Committee members also said they thought the boards should not charge fees large enough to accumulate considerable surpluses. The largest surplus reported to the committee was from the Licensing Board for General Contractors. At the close of the 1953 fiscal year, the board had a balance of $117,821.30.

Humphrey said he failed to see Southeast Asia before the Geneva any urgency for Western action on meeting. "The Indochina situation is desperate, but it has been desperate for a long time," he said. "I regret that these things weren't kept in mind when the Geneva meeting was planned." He said the Soviet's "immediate and long-range objective" has been to break up the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. Any withholding of funds from NATO, he contended, would only aid the Kremlin design and hurt the U.S. goal of strengthening Europe. "And remember." he said, "we're building up Europe to help ourselves." Sen. Burke (D-Ohio), in a speech at Warren, Ohio, last night called for a special joint session of Congress to be addressed by the President on the Indochina situation. Another Democrat, Sen. Long of Louisiana, issued a statement yesterday in which he called for stopping any further aid to the French forces in Indochina. He said sending Air Force technicians to Indochina, as the United States did recently, "let down the barriers" and the Communist Chinese sent in radar and artillery technicians to help besiege the fortress of Dien Bien Phu. Meanwhile, a House Armed Services subcommittee urged the United States be given more chance to help "in a training and advisory capacity" in the Indo- Chinese war.

Brownell reports to the nation tonight on what measures have been taken to protect internal security, particularly with respect to Communists in the United States.

It is scheduled for 9 p. m. (EST). The White House has described the two-broadcasts as "a package." Both were arranged for on free time in the public interest, and are described by the administrations as "entirely nonparti- UN Group Plans Arms Control Conferences UNITED NATIONS. N. Y. W— The 12-nation U. N. Disarmament Commission was expected to agree unanimously today to set up a small subgroup for private talks at once on arms reduction and atomic control. Diplomatic circles expressed belief the subcommittee would consist of the United States. Russia, Britain, France and possibly Canada. Some countries were understood to favor inclusion of Canada because of that country's close connection with British and American atomic production. Today's meeting of the commission was its first in eight months.. Its only session last year, in August, was devoted to approval of a report of no progress. Before the delegates today was a plea from India for immediate consideration of a four-point program outlined by Prime Minister Nehru to the Indian Parliament last Friday. Nehru wants an immediate stand-still agreement on atomic and hydrogen bomb explosions; full publicity on the destructive power of atomic and hydro- j gen weapons: private meetings of 'the subcommittee on his idea: and an expression of concern by countries not having atomic weapons.

ANEW A. A. is a program for a new way of life without alcohol, a program that is working successfully for many tens of thousands of men and women all over the world who approach it and apply it with honesty and sincerity. A. A. has nothing to offer the person who still thinks he can "Quit anytime he wants to." A way of life cannot he described; it must be lived. Descriptive literature that relies upon broad, inspirational generalities is bound to leave many questions unanswered and many readers not fully satisfied that they have come upon the thing they need and seek. M the other extreme, a catalog of the details of a program for living can portray only a part of the actual value of such a program. This we know: if you have been unsuccessful in your previous attempts to stop drinking—if you are unable to face realities of life without the effect of alcohol to 'steady your nerves'—if you are willing to follow a simple daily design for living— A. A. can and will help you. A. A. really works!! ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS Box 873 — Blyfrheville, Arkansas Anyone Interested Invited to Our Meetings Open Meetings 8:30 p. m.
