Colay of Columbia 1O SPEAK HERE — Dr. Cecil Sutley. professor of psychology and counseling at Ouachita College at Arkadelphia. will be guest speaker at the 10:55 a.m. and 7:30 p.m. serviced Sunday at the First Baptist Church here. He is a graduate of Mississippi College and .Southwestern Seminary, Fort Worth. The Rev. E. C. Brown, pastor, will conduct a one-week revival at the First Baptist Church in Springdale, Ark., beginning Sunday. County recommended Shackleford as a member because he said the oil industry was the state's greatest severance taxpayer and should have a voting representative on the institute. After Shackleford was approved for membership, Rep. Paul Van Dalsem of Perry County said Rep. Charles F. Smith of Crittenden County should be appointed because "eastern Arkansas ought to be represented." The nomination was approved. The council rejected a recommendation by Rep. L. H. Autry of Mississippi County that its research staff should be made available to a committee appointed to make a mental health survey in Arkansas. Probe "Referred" Van Dalsem led the opposition, stating that other state agencies have clerical staffs which can do the work. The gasoline-utility prices probe proposal was referred to the Committee on Appropriations, Banking and Insurance. Rep. Jim Evans of Marion County, in suggesting the probe, said "eastern corporations who want to move factories here are in the dark on these items." In favoring the investigation, Van Dalsem said that "we've never made an investigation ... we've just had a lot of hullabaloo in the last Legislature." He referred to a similar investigation, headed by Evans, during the 1953 General Assembly which was discontinued when the Legislature refused to make an appropriation to cover its expenses. Rep. Don Jones of Pulaski County disagreed with Van Dalsem, saying that the committee spent "half the session" on it. "What did you find out?" shouted several council members. • ''Not a thing," said Jones, adding: "You'll find the same thing." 5 Children Die in Fire COLUMBIA, Ala.

DULLES (Continued from Page 1) fly to Paris Tuesday to continue the discussions with Foreign Minister Georges Bidault. Dulles is sched- ulded to return to the United States Wednesday. The official State Department announcement said Dulles' talks in London and Paris "will concern themselves with questions relating to the Geneva Conference" on Korean and 'Indochinese peace settlements. This conference is due to open April 26, with the Western Big Three, Russia and Red China in attendance. However, the primary purpose fo the quickly scheduled trip is Dulles' need to persuade the British and French governments to join in the "united action" program he first called for in a speech 13 days ago. The British and French governments, in consultations carried out through diplomatic channels, have shown reluctance to take any such action in advance of the Geneva meeting. They have reportedly questioned whether it was necessary and, if so, whether this was the time to do it. Eisenhower and Dulles are convinced, however, that a new element of strength must be injected into the Indochina situation on the free world side at once. There is deep concern here over the maintenance of a French will to carry on the fight to some kind of successful conclusion, and there is a strong desire to bolster the French position in advance of the negotiations at Geneva. Threats Not Answer The 10 nations which would be ! in the agreement if Dulles is wholly successful are the United States, Britain, France. Austria, New Zealand, Thailand, the Philippines, and the three Indochinese states of Laos, Cambodia and Viet- najp. Sen. Ferguson (R-Mich) said today that threats to cut off foreign military aid aren't going to solve the Indochina dilemma. Ferguson, who heads the Senate Republican Policy Committee, declared in an interview that "disputes among us aren't going to save our cause." Sen. Knowland ("R-Calif) predicted that Congress will delay any final decision on foreign aid funds until France acts not only on Indochina but also on the European Defense Community. Chairman Bridges (R-NH) of the Senate Appropriations Committee said in a separate interview he agrees with Knowland that if the French agree to any settlement of the Indochina War that is unacceptable to Washington there is likely ! to be a quick cut-off in military ' aid funds.

Top Hollywood WeddingTakes Place Today HOLLYWOOD (A — Suzan Ball, the young actress who lost a leg to cancer, and Dick Long, who lost a heart to Suzan, wed tomorrow in the movie wedding of the year. Most of Hollywood's younger set will trek to Santa Barbara for the 4 p.m. (7 p.m. EST) rites in El Montecito Presbyterian Church* Not since Ann Blythe married Dr. Jim McNulty has a movieland wedding attracted so much interest as this one. Black-eyed Suzan spent her last day of maidenhood in the usual chaotic state of brides to be. Long is moving in to Miss Ball's apartment after the honeymoon. The doorbell at Suzan's small apartment rang constantly as messengers delivered gifts, telegrams and letters from all over the world. Many came from new found friends, openly admiring the 21- year-old girl's pluckiness in her year-long fight with cancer that forced amputation of her right leg. Long. 26-year-old ex-GI, seemed to take things more in stride, although it's his first try at matrimony, too. "It's too early for the shock to set in," he confided to a friend. The bride will walk down the aisle on crutches. She still is only training with a new artificial leg. COURT (Continued from Page 1) burglary and grand larceny. Billy W.
