L—NO, 235 Blytheville Courier Blytheville Daily News Mississippi Valley Leader Blytheville Herald BLYTHEVILLE, ARKANSAS, FRIDAY DECEMBER 31, 1954 TEN PAGES Published Daily Except Sunday SINGLE COPY FIVE CENTS Army Reveals Early Release Plan for Gl f s 44,000 to Be Discharged Ahead of Regular Schedule WASHINGTON (AP) — The Army said today it plans to release ahead of time next May and June about 44,000 draftees who will be nearing the end of their terms of service. ^^^ Dulles Plans Talks On SEATONavy Will Discuss U.S., British, French Force WASHINGTON (AP) — Secretary of State Dulles said today he will explore with the seven other Manila pact allies the question of creating a combined U. S.-British-French naval force to protect Southeast Asia against Communist aggression. Dulles declined at a news conference to fill in many details, but he said the Manila pact must be adequately implemented. That was the task to be started at a meeting at Bangkok, Thailand, in late February, he said. By adequate implementation. Dulles told newsmen, he meant something stronger than just the words of the treaty signed last Sept. 8 by the United States, Britain, France, Australia, New Zealand, Thailand, Pakistan and the Philippines. No Standing Force He said the eight nations would develop no standing military force such as the huge power now concentrated in Europe under the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). Prime reliance in Southeast Asia, he stressed, must be on mobile striking power. Then, in response to questions, he said such a mobile force would be discussed at Bangkok. It would be premature to say now what precise composition or form it would take, he declared. Warming Sun Chases Snow, Cold in Mid-West By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Skies cleared and there was some warming today over most of the mid-continent, which was hit by snow, and ice storms earlier this week. Twenty-three deaths were attributed directly or indirectly to the stormy weather. Fair weather also was reported over most of the eastern third of the country and in the Southwest. Light snow fell in some parts of the upper Great Lakes region and in New England. Snow on the ground at Caribou, Maine, measured 30 inches. Rain continued during the night The Army announcement said present plans .which require final approval, call for the early release of Inductees completing 23 and 22 months of service, respectively, in May and June. The normal 24-month service Jor draftees will be resumed after June. The Army said it also plans a comparable early release program in the March through June period for approximately 3,400 reserve lieutenants now serving their initial 24 month tour of active duty. Officers who have volunteered for additional periods of active duty and who have been accepted by the army will not be released. Tart of Trim The early release program is part of the plan to speed up the procss of trimming down the Army. The new program is aimed to cut off the rolls by June 73,000 more men than previously planned, leaving a force of 1,100,000, at the end of that month. Much of the total reduction in strength, the Army said, is expected to be obtained through a substantial decrease in draft calls during each month beginning with February. The Defense Department announced that the drart call for February will be 11.000, a decrease of more than half from the January call of 23,000. The 11,000 monthly call is expected to continue at. least through nest June. The Army said in connection with the planned early release of reservists that the program will not include officers of the Women's Army Corps, Ihe Chaplains Corps and the Medical Service. Ahead of the Army's announcement it was reported that Gen. Matthew B. Rictgway had taken the unusual step of writing President Eisenhower to protest the cut in Army manpower.

Many Obstacles Remain in Path Of WEU Force PAH1S (AP) — The Mile for >Vi'st Gorman rearmament thundered on throughout Europe today despite Premier Pierre Mendos-Fnmce's victory in the French National As- scvrbly.

But even la France, the ratification process was far from complete. K;isler Time Seen The Council of the Republic, Parliament's upper house, still must give its okay.

Certainly, no other corporation} a 41-inch bust, but has such well-rounded assets. Tempest storm is a strip-tease dancer with,the kind of figure that must give Dior frantic frustration. She has a 41-inch bust. Draping a $7,500 mink coat on one arm and a press agent on the other, the red-haired Miss Storm breezed into the austere Boston Room of the Sutler Hotel yesterday to sign up for one million dollars worth of body insurance with Lloyds of London. Her press agent even produced a copy of the policy but none of the 50 male reporters bothered to look at It.

Federal Officials Keep Close Eye On Stock Market Vigil Concentrated On Credit As New Highs Continue WASHINGTON MI—Federal officials in WaslilMKlnn nre keeping an ever closer watch on Ihe .slock market, us It enntlnucs to touch Their vlcll Is concentrated on l.he of credit . If borrowinff to buy stocks grows to proportions Unit, responsible ol- ficinlH here feel makes t-hn market subject t.o fi price collapse, credit controls enforced by the Federul Reserve Board would bn stiffened, There is us yet no indication that the situation has gonn that far. But It could change, swiftly. Thnt is conscnsn."? of talks with highly placed officials who u.skrd that they noted be quoted by name. Thn Federal Reserve Boo I'd has authority to raise Inn margin re- riuircmenta on stock market operations from the present 50 per cnnt cash requirements. The board In February 11)53 reduced the cash requirement to SO per cent trom the 75 per cent Imposed early In 1%1 as an anti-Inflationary measure. Cmilil Tighten Credit The board could nlso art lens directly by tl«htoning up on the supply of money and em!It In general. This would have the effect of raising interest rates, and of making loans harder and more expensive to get. Loans to brokers in New York City Federal Reserve member banks stood at $1,015,000,000 on Dec. 2ft. That was nn Increase of 1)7 million dollars during the week, and was 21f» million higher than a year earlier. Further sharp Increases of that size could br; a strong factor In the thinking of the Federal Reserve Board. .Some factors appeared to indicate, that for the present, at least, the stock market rise Is larRely ba.sed upon nonspeculative, elements. Officials said these factors included: credit buying of stocks has not increased alarmingly; buying has been concentrated on Industrial stocks, and has been further concentrated on shares of firms with (jonrt earnings and growth records; pension and mutual investment funds, which favor such stocks, have been large buyers; for tax reasons, many persons may be waiting for the new year to sell and take a profit. Officials emphasized that It is not the mission of the government to control stock prices. The law requires the reserve board to use its powers "to prevent excessive use,- of credit." Council of the Republic, its upper house, still must act, but little dif- ficully was expected there. On Capitol Hill, Chairman Wiley (R-WiS) of the Senate Foreign Re- itiUons committee mentioned "the narrow margin of victory," tmt expressed hope all will be well from now on, "Anotlicr Link" Sen. Mansfield (D-Mont) told newsmen "the victory Is another link" in traditional U.S.-French friendship. Sen. Sparkman (D-Ald) said the French action "must be pleasing to nil the free world." Both Mansfield and Sparkan serva on the Foreign Relations Committee. In his statement yesterday, Dulles referred Indirectly to the nagging French fear of putting guns Into the hands of Germans who three tirhes in n century had Invaded France. Dulles said: "A special tribute Is due to thosw In France who saw that patriotism required the burying of age- old hostilities. That this could happen is n good augury for the years ahead," Eisenhower, too, spoke in thla vein when lie said; "As decisive cooperation supplants age-old antagonism, so th* prospect for a general and lasting pence! will bo definitely Improved, and n mcnsure of encouragement may .therefore even now be felt by all who are earnestly striving to maintain nnd improve the unity and harmony of the free world."

W.—A fib about Jet-speed rabbits, nurtured In the Southland to the status of a fancy fable, has won the title World's Champion LS»r lor Sht-lton R. Day, Baton Rouge, La., in the 1954 parade of fabrication by the Burlington Liars' Club. Shelton's tale was announced today as the big whopper of the year and he won custody, for one year, of the club's "gold-plated, diamond-studded medal." His story: "The swamp rfthhttw down this way are so fast that we use high- powered rifles to hunt them lastead of shotguns. Even then hunters nevur get any, unless they know the trick. To bag these rabbits on the run you have to aim last, shoot, and then let out a shrill whistle. When you whbUe the rabbit stops —tincl the bullet has a chance to catch up with him!" Honorable mention went to these epics: J. E. Tingey, of Elk, Waah. related, "Cyclones do funny things. Last year one came through my place. I had a sack of shelled corn hanging on a nail on the side of the The cyclone blew away the sack, and left that corn hanging from the nail like a swarm of bco.s." The Rev. Rcinhard Kaufman, of Watford City, N, D., said, "in January of 1953 it WHS so warm in the blizzard state of North Dakota that potato bugs wore waiting on fence posts for potatoes to come up, tn January 11)54 It was so cold that the magpies would circle around the chimney lop for five minutes to ffct warm befort uwooping down to the back door to steal my dog's food." Rudy Busses, East Gary, Tnd., reported, "My uncle Is a farmer; the biggest and the richest tn South Dakota. They never have been able to count his dollars or his acres. He is so rich that he carries his hny in his pocketbook—and stacks his money out behind the barn." 0. C. Hulett, president of the club, snys that in honor of the club's silver anniversary, the biggest liar of the putt quarter century has been selected. He is the 1953 winner, Bruno Ceresa, who lived last year at Langeloth, Pa.
