BLYTHEVILLE COURIER NEWS THE DOMINANT NEWSPAPER OF NORTHEAST ARKANSAS AND SOUTHEAST MISSOURI YOL. L-NO. 281 Blythevllle Courier Blytheville Daily Newi Mississippi Valley Leader Blytheville Herald BLYTHEVILLE, ARKANSAS, MONDAY, DECEMBER 27, 1954 TEN PAGES Published Daily Except Sunday SINGLE COPY FIVE CENT1 Formosa Claimed By Reds Chou En-Lai Says Island Will Be Taken TOKYO (AP) — Red China's Premier Chou En-lai, in one of his most bristling statements to date, says "the Chinese people will never halt" until the Red flag flys over Formosa island holdout of Chiang Kai shek's Chinese Nationalists. Chou voiced this latest Communist threat to capture Formosa before a government-sanctioned consultative conference in Peiping last Tuesday. Peiping radio did no broadcast Chou's remarks unti: yesterday. Peiping quoted him as saying: "Taiwan (Formosa) is China's territory and the Chinese people will never halt until Taiwan is liberated . . . The Chinese people resolutely demand that the United States withdraw all its armed forces from .Taiwan." Chou. at the same time, boasted that China no longer is a weak nation and Would not beg for peace at the price of surrendering territorial claims. Treaty Hit He called the recently-signed mutual defense treaty under which the United States promises to defend Formosa and the nearby Pescadores as "a great menace to peace in the Far East and Asia.' The Chinese Communist leader charged that the United States attempted "to cover up the aggressive substance of the : . . treaty" by creating "a great clamor about the ... U.S.spies that had been justly convicted in China." That was Chou's only reference to the 11 U.S. airmen imprisoned by the Beds on spy charges. He made no mention of U.N. Secretary General Dag Hammarskjold's pro jeot«d trip to Peiping to seek the airmen's release. Chou told the conference his government feels "great regret" over recent actions by Great Britain. He said relations between Britain and Red China' improved dur- ins 1 the Geneva conference. But lie added that of late Britain "has been vigorously following the dangerous policy of the United States aggressive bloc on certain major issues." He mentioned Formosa as being- one of these "issues." J. A.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Members of President Eisenhower's Cabinet, indulging in the year-end custom of taking a look ahead, see 1955 as a year of peace but continuing tensions and of a stable and prosperous economy. But the National Planning Assn., less optimistic about the economy, says the new year will be one of rising unemployment unless buy- Ing power and production are stimulated by the government and by industry. The nonprofit, privately financed organization representing business, labor, agriculture and the professions, urged further tax cuts, increased public spending on such things as schools, roads and hospitals, and higher wages. No Pessimism Cabinet officers wrote Uieir sep- 'Money Maker' Costs 9 Years PARAGOULD, Ark.

The violent death list reached 475 during the two-day, 54-hour period from 6 p.m. Friday to midnight Sunday. Deaths in traffic numbered 362. * * - u. Fires claimed 59 lives. The remain- Ing 54 victims met death in a wide variety of mishaps. The traffic toll came very close to the National Safety Council's pre-holiday estimate of 370 fatalities. It was far heavier than the earlier record of 277 traffic deaths for a similar period at Christmas 1948. The overall total, too, surpassed the 1948 mark of 396. The holiday accident death figures compared with a non-holiday weekend count by the Associated Press Dec. 10-12 of 225 traffic deaths, 39 In fires and 67 from miscellaneous mishaps. Despite a' strenuous campaign for safe and sober driving during the Christinas weekend in California, the populous state recorded 27 deaths on streets and highways. Other states with heavy traffic tolls included Texas with 26, Pennsylvania, 25; Ohio and Illinois, 20 each; New York, 18, and Michigan 16. 6 State* Deathless Six states reported no deaths from accident of any sort during the period—Nebraska, New Hampshire. North Dakota, Rhode Island, Vermont and Wyoming. Iowa's eight traffic deaths put that state over the previous year's record by four; the toll to date is 62D. The toll by states (Traffic, fires, miscellaneous): Alabama 9-0-0; Arizona 5-0-0. Arkansas 2-13-2; California 27-3-7, Colorado 5-0-0: Connecticut 2-0-0; Delaware 1-0-0; Florida 15-2-3, Georgia 14-5-0: Idaho 2-0-0; Illinois 20-2-5; Indiana 8-1-0; Iowa 8-00; Kansas 40-1; Kentucky 12-3-1; Louisiana 6-1-1; Maine 3-0-0; Maryland 7-0-1; Massachusetts 7-2-1; Michigan 183-1; Minnesota 2-0-0; Mississippi 40-0; Missouri 8-0-1; Montana 1-0-1; Nevada 2-0-1; New Jersey 10-1-3; New York 18-8-4: New Mexico 30 2; North Carolina 1322; Ohio 201 3; Oklahoma 910; Oregon 700, Pennsylvania 25-1-3; South Caro- Tennessee 6-1-0; Texas 2-6-45: Utah 400; Virginia 9-2-4; Washington 2-0-0; West Virginia 2-0-0; Wisconsin 4-0-0; District of Columbia 2-1-0. Traffic Claims Two Men in Semo One Drowned After Car Plunges Into Hermondale Ditch CARUTHERSVILLE— Two traffic fatalities occurring in two accidents m Pemiscot County over the weekend were reported by Missouri Highway Patrol. Chester Marvin SiBler, 34, of Cooler was killed instantly when the car he was driving collided head-on with a dairy truck on Highway 61 south of Hayti Friday afternoon. Marvin Armstrong, 23, of Granite City, 111., drowned in a ditch when the car in which he was riding overturned after crashing through a bridge railing on County Road M •near Hermondale, hist night. Robert Lee Pritchette, 21, ol Hornersville. told Stale Trooper Jeff Hickman that the accident occurred while he was driving south on "load M and hit loose gravel. Lousing control of the vehicle it broke through a bridge railing and landed upside down in a ditch containing water. The eight occupants of the 1951 Chevrolet were trapped inside for about 20 minutes, he said, and wncn able to get. out it was found that Mr. Armstrong hnd drowned. One Injured Joe Franklin, 16, of HornersviUe v.as the only person reported injured, receiving cuts on the face and neck. Taken to Ch.ckasawba Hospital m Blytheville, he was release'! after first aid treatment. The other occupants o! the vehicle who were not injured were Everette Hall, 29, of Granite city: Junior Lavern Pritchette, 20, an:! Patty Ann Ward, 16 both of Hor- nersvilLe; Reba'Fay Wcsterficld. 13, and Freda Lovetta Killion, 17, both of Reeves. Mi-. Armstrong's body was arate appraisals of 1954 and of 1955 for "Nation's Business," monthly publication of the U. S. Chamber of Commerce. While several of the 10 expressed n note of caution, there was no pessimism. Secretary of State Dulles said 1954 saw considerable progress toward world peace, but added that "formidable obstacles" reniain. He predicted the free world would be exposed to Communist trickery in 1955, and added: "We shall strive that no Incandescent episode will flare Into the terrible eventuality of a third world war." Secretary of Defease Wilson wrote: "We are determined to use our atomic leadership to serve the usages of peace, but we will take lull account of onr large and growing arsenal of nuclear weapons and the most effective means of using them against an aggressor if they are needed to preserve our freedom. Want Best "We do nov nccessavily seek the biggest air force in the world, but we do want the best and the most powerful . . . second best is not good enough. . ." Secretary of the Treasury Humphrey said the nation's economy must provide the weapons of defense and "an ever higher standard of living as well as the social services which our people want and need." "The economy for which we are working: will provide a dependable flow of new and improved products and new, better-paying Jobs for a steadily increasing population," Humphrey said. Somewhat more cautiously. Secretary of Commerce Weeks said "further economic growth in 1955 is probable, if an environment that favorable to business progress maintained." Weeks said his department is planning record federal outlays to aid construction of airports, highways and ships. The National Planning Assn., urging such public spending, said the national outpu 1 . should be boosted by 25 to 30 billion dollars next year. The oni.uiizaron's trustees, headed by New York banker II. Christian Soimc 1 , said in a statement made public last night that the growth of the economy has fulled ... kce pm;e with the labor force and increased output per worker, and it continued: "The actual level of'economic .ictivity is at present about 15 to 20 billion dollars below the amount of reasonable full employment." The group said no general depression seems to be in sight, but it urged tax cuts to.stimulate consumer buying, and an improvement of social security legislation.

The Premier Is asking- for th« Assembly's vote of confidence on West Gevmnny's entrance into the North^ Atlantic Treaty Organization nnd, by Implication, the whole network of London-Pnrls accords for West German rearmament as a partner in n seven-notion Western European Union. Galleries Fucked The public nnd press gnlleries of the chamber were packed long before the Assembly Was called to order by its presiding officer, Andre Lctroqtier. Outside, many others, Including knots of Communist demonstrators hostile to West German rearmament, thronged against barricades waiting n turn to get Inside. Hundreds of police stood on gunrd fit strategic points around the Assembly building, the Bourbon Pnlnce, to maintain order. Shortly before the session opened, most of the political grouiut were holding last minute enitcuses, nnd the odds appeared to ttvvor the Premier by a slim margin. Tlio executive committee of the Independent Republicans, most of whom were hostile to the government last week, ndvlsed party members today to vote for the Premier. This, It said, should be done to support the Atlantic Alliance and not as a gesture for Mendes-Frnnce personally. Final Appeal V ii i' I 6 u fl party spokesmen planned to take the floor before Me i id e.s-France himself presented u supreme lust-minute appeal for Uw Assembly's backing on his pro- We-ritern foreign policy. Defeat would mean the resignation of his six-month-old government. Me i.s asking a vote of confidence today on two points—West Germany's entrance into NATO, and endorsement of the government's position on three amendments to the ratification bill. If Hueeessful on those ballots, he was slated to demand that the Assembly reverse Its refusal last Friday to ratify the - treaty permitting West Germany torcarm as a member of the seven-nation Western European Union (WEU). That, too. would be n question of confidence which under Assembly rules could not be voted on for 24 hours, probably tomorrow. Dnfcal Means Resignation ' Defeat on any of the three votes would force the government to resign, plunging France into another of its -mmerous postwar Cabinet crises. Observers declined to predict in iidvnnce of the Assembly session hnw the deputies would vote. But it appeared that at best Mendes- Kranee could hope only for approval of rearmament by a small margin, and with mnny Assembly members abstaining from the ballot. The whole future ol the Western alliance and of France's position awaited the outcome of the Assembly votes. The British government, backed by the United States. has announced that West Germany will be rearmed regardless of the French action, and that final French rejection of the treaties will result in recoasideration of the British pledge last fall to keep troops on the European continent. Ir: Augusta. Ga., White House Press Secretary James C. Hngerty announced that President Eisenhower would consider cutting short his Christmas holiday if the French deputies refused to ratify the treaties. •Two Votes In the first vote of confidence SPC MKNDES-FRANCE on Paeg 5 ... ....... .... ________ — of two Mexican tenant farm families near Parkin, Ark., sent lain and colder with possibly so the violent death toll in Arkansas skyrocketing to 25 for lhel lrcczi " "" extreme northwest week which ended Sunday midnight.
