Proponents Of Seaway Hail Victory 20-Year Fight Ends as House Approves Bill CHICAGO (AP) — Proponents of the St. Lawrence seaway today hailed victory in their 20-year fight for congressional enabling legislatibn but tempered their rejoicing in the realization that fullest benefits are many years away. The House yesterday approved a bill to authorize a 27-foot-deep channel in the International Rapids section of the St. Lawrence River. Gov. G. Mennen Williams of Miehigran said the action ''means that the major barrier to making Great Lakes cities inland seaports will be removed," The measure returns to the Senate, which had previously approved it, for concurrence in minor House amendments. Then it will go to President Eisenhower for signature into law. The President had advocated the seaway as a defense measure and yesterday, after the House acted, said It would also "contribute materially to the economic well-being and security" of both the United States and Canada. Seaway proponents from the upper Great Lakes region, however, already had set a new target—a supplementary all-U. S. project deepening: channels- into Lakes Huron, Michigan and Superior, where navigation is now restricted to 21 feet for upbound ships and 25 feet for downbound ships. The measure authorizing the 27- foot channel into Lakes Ontario and Erie contemplates a joint project with Canada. It would enable ocean-going, ships to move Inland as far as Toledo. Navigation of the river where the seaway canal would be dug now is restricted to vessels of a draft of 14 feet or less. The House's 241-158 vote for the •eaway yesterday, however, evoked no official enthusiasm in Ottawa. Prime Minister Louis St. Laurent said. Canada was prepared—and many believed she preferred—to go it alone. That would mean Canada would set and collect all the tolls.

USDA to Extend Cotton Prict Props for Year WASHINGTON C/P)—The tude Department announced yesterday that it wUl extend price support loans on 1953-crop cotton another 12 months. The loans to growers, now covering 5.862,641 bales, now will fall due July 31, 1955. This action will give grower-borrowers an additional year in which to pay off loans and redeem their cotton. There is no financial incentive for growers to do this unless cotton prices rise above the price support rate and loan charges. If farmers do not pay off loans, the government takes over the cotton.

The vote authorized Laniel's government to continue to negotiate here for an end to the seven- year Indochina war. The French also were expected to make new efforts for a temporary cease-fire at beleagured Dien Bien Phu to permit evacuation of French Union wounded. ^ Russia rebuffed an appeal along those lines by French Foreign Minister Georges Bidault, seeking instead to maneuver the French into direct negotiations with the Vietminh rebels. Bidault rejected the Russian suggestion, which could be interpreted by the Communists as French recognition of the Vietminh. . . - the letters start Then froir. *1» ov« the free world come sucfc comments as these from readeri '«' THE CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR, an international daih newspaper: ^ Monitor M must reading for itraight-lhinking " •*/ returned to ichool after « lapse of 18 ytars.

LITTLE LIZ— Some of the "big city" TV $tais hove convinced everyone that not oil of the ham comes from hom^ fete INDOCHINA (Continued from Page 1) that plans to supply the fortress with an airlift from Hanoi proved expensive and extremely difficult. Planes had to drop their supplies from a high altitude, so that much equipment fell immediately into Vietminh hands. Meanwhile the Geneva conference is ready to take up the prob* .em of making peace in Indochina. The intensity of the Dien Bien Phu attack showed the Communists' determination to present its cap- ;ure as an accomplished fact before the diplomats at Geneva. Laniel's announcement came to a country already steeled by the day's bad news to an impending collapse.
