BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS $28 Billion To Be Asked For Defense House Group Recommends Cosh Budget WASHINGTON (AP) — A Defense Department cash budget of $28,680,706,500 was recommended today by the House Appropriation's Committee,, with $7615,523,000 earmarked to finance "the greatest Army ever maintained by this nation on a full year basis in the absence of actual warfare." The total is $1,206,348,500 less thafi President Eisenhower asked for the Army, the Navy and the Air Force and related activities for the fiscal year starting next July 1. But the cut imposed by the committee to a^ bill sent to the House for debate starting Wednesday was actually less than half as large as it appears. Committee cuts were about 541 million dollars, the balance of the reduction having been volunteered by the armed services <* being in the nature of bookkeeping savings. The new cash supplements an estimated 48 billion dollars available to the services from previous years' appropriations, in effect giving them $76,874,000,000 with which to operate. An additional $1,050,000,000 in carryover funds was rescinded by the committee, the sum including 500 millions from Army procurement and production ftmds and 550 millions adorn stock funds of aH title services. Now It's Split Sere's how the new cash would be split among the services, if the House and tne Senate follow the committee's recommendations: Army: $7,615,523,000, a cut of $686,477,000 from" what the President requested and $5,321,883,000 lews than was appropriated for the present year. Navy: $9,705,818,:>00, a budget cut of $209,181,500 but an increase of $267,908,500 over current year appropriations. Air Force: • $10,819,310,000 a budget cut of $380,690,000 and,a reduction of $-348,890,000 from 1954 fundte. t Commodity And Stock Markets- Ntw York Cotton (12:31 quotation!)

For encores he played by request Debussy's "Clair de Lune," also the Chopin "Etude in D major.' Not only was Mr. McDowells playing an inspiration to the students who heard him, but also his background. Unlike many artists he received his first music training as a boy soprano of the Owensboro Episcopal Choir, and it was not until after his voice changed and he had tried and become discouraged with the old fashioned pump organ that he tried the piano. Friends, recognizing his aptitude for this instrument, sent him to Chicago where he studied with the famous teacher Rudolph Ganz. Since his debut he has played with several symphony orchestras, over several nationwide radio broadcasts, and is now on his second nationwide tour. His concert here was an enjoyable and inspirational close to the present concert season.

(Continued from Page 1) balance of propriety." "Completely," Stevens answered. "This was not done for" the purpose of mollifying or pacifying the senator, or getting him to suspend his investigation of Ft . Monmouth?" Jenkins asked. "Certainly not," Stevens insisted. He added "it was a friendly matter o fconvenience, when you get right down to it." Stevens .denied he was trying to minimize the worth of McCarthy's investigation, but testified the Army's own probe for suspected subversives at the big radar center would have reached the same end If McCarthy had stayed out of the picture. Stevens said the Army had information on its own on all cases brought to light by McCarfljy. Six persons had been suspended before McCarthy carne into the Ft. Monmouth picture, he said, and later there were 27 more suspensions. Of those suspended, Stevens said, 13 have been put back to work in non-sensitive positions pending further investigation. Sixteen cases have been heard and boards are in process .of making reports. Six cases remain t* be heard. Noting that Stevens conceded some suspensions have been speeded up by the committee investigation, Jenkins asked if McCarthy had not done "an important piece of work that enhanced national security, time being of essence in detection of communists" in the Army. Steve'ns replied that all could agree that subversives should be ousted as fast as possible. Jenkins asked if Stevens had not "damned with faint praise" the McCarthy investigation. The secretary * denied any effort to discredit or halt the investigation and insisted he was just "calling .the shots as I saw them." Jenkins noted that McCarthy has alleged that "you wanted to stop" the investigation. "I never did any such thing," Stevens snapped back.

Part of her internment there was spent at the notorious Santo Tomas prison, to the U. S. early in 1945 when Am- She was released and returned erican troops liberated the Philippines. Miss Dyer returned to her mission in Korea in 1947 only to find that much of-the progress she had made among toe Korean people in the little village of Kaesong had come to naught during the wartime Japanese occupation. It was in this village of Kaesong, later to become well - known throughout the world for its part in the prisoner repatriation program, that Miss Dyer was living when taken captive by North Koreans shortly after the Communist troops stormed over the 38th parallel June 26. 1950. Almost Escaped Eight persons worked in the mission post where Mi5s Dyer lived at Kaesong, which is only two miles south of the 38th parallel However only six were at the post when it was overrun by the North Koreans. The other two had gone to Seoul. Ironically, Miss Dyer said she came very near to going with them, In which case, she would have avoided capture. From that time until her release in 1963, she was shuttled around to various prison camps in North Korea, never being allowed to communicate with anyone on the outside. She was taken first to Pyongyang, capital of North Korea, and from there was moved on northward as United Nations troops recovered from the first setbacks and began pushing back up the epninsula. Often she and other civilian prisoners were kept in the some compounds with military prisoners, a practice Strictly forbidden by the Geneva Convention. But then, as Miss Dyer says with her rare sense of humor which she never lost even through her bitter experiences, "the North Koreans had never heard of Geneva." One story which Miss Dyer likes to tell is of the North Korean major, commandant of her prison compound, who needed glasses. But such things were practically unknown to the North Koreans afc that time. So whenever he wanted to read he borrowed her glasses— and they seemed to satisfy him perfectly. Food Improve* Though they remained hungry practically all the time, they were fed better after the Chinese "volunteer" troops entered the war In the fall of 1950, Miss Dyer said. The Chinese refused to take over control of the prisoners, though they did provide food for them which was a great improvement, she said. Her release in April, 1953, was effected after lengthy efforts by U.S. Charter No. 14389 Reserve District No. 8 Report of Condition of The First National Bank of Blytheville in the State of Arkansas, at the close of business on April 15, 1954.

GEM THEATRE "Oinoto's Finest" SAT-SUN-MON-TUES The French Line In Tecfm/co/or Starring Jane Russell See Tfiot Picture — That Donee The picture that was banned in Mentphli and Little Rock QUESTIONS and ANSWERS Q WHY IS A. A. INTERESTED IN PROBLEM DRINKERS? A. Members Of A. A. have a selfish interest in offering a helping hand to other alcoholics who have not yet achieved sobriety. First, they know from experience that this type of activity helps them to stay sober. Their lives now have a great and compelling interest and it is probable that reminders of their own previous experience with alcohol helps them to avoid the overconfidence that could lead to a relapse. Whatever the explanation, A. A.'s who give freely of their time and effort to help other alcoholics seldom have trouble preserving their Own soberity. The second reason that A. A.'s are anxious to help problem drinkers is because it gives them an opportunity to square their debt to those who helped them. It is the only practical way in which the individual's debt to A. A. can ever be repaid. The A. A. member knows that soberity cannot be bought and that he cannot automatically assume, once he is dry that he has a long term lease on it. He does know, however, that a new way of life without alcohol is his for the asking, if he honestly wants it and if he is wUling to share it with those who may follow him. Another very good reason that A. A.'s are willing to stop what they are doing at the time and go quickly to the rescue of one who has called for help is because A. A. Members have a good working knowledge of the seriousness of alcoholism. They know that medical authorities rate it as the number four KILLER of human lives today. A. A.'s know that of some twenty million "serious" drinkers in America today—approximately five million are sick alcoholics. ONE OUT OF FOUR! (These figures have nothing to do with the sixty million Americans who drink moderately) Certainly A. A. members are Interested in probleih drinkers. No one wants to see a friend hurt himself!.
