BLYTHEVILLE COURIER NEWS THE DOMINANT NEWSPAPER OF NORTHEAST ARKANSAS AND SOUTHEAST MISSOURI VOL. XLIX—NO. 136 Blytheville Courier BlythevlUe Daily New» Mississippi Valley Leader Blytheville Herald BLYTHEVILLB, ARKANSAS, FRIDAY, AUGUST 28, 1953 TWELVE PAGES SINGLE COPIES FIVE GENT* New Budget Gets Praise Congressional Leaders See Definite Tax Cut By CHARLES F. BARRETT WASHINGTON (AP) — Congressional leaders today hailed a new, downward curving Eisenhower administration budget as a step toward lower taxes and a clincher against raising the federal debt limit now. The new budget scaled down by two billion dollars the estimates of just a few months ago on federal spending, the deficii and the national _ debt for this fiscal year, ending next June 30. Secretary of the Treasury Humphrey, pleased as punch, said the picture is now brighter than the administration's "best expectations." We have definitely turned the corner," he told a news conference yesterday. Humphrey said: 1. Barring unexpected changes in the picture, it will not be necessary to call Congress back into special session to raise the federal debt ceiling. That question was left up in the air when the lawmakers recessed four weeks ago. 2. The administration will propose a balanced budget for the next fiscal year. 3. Chances have lessened that further increases in total revenue will be proposed to reach that prime goal of the administration. But officials are considering all sorts of fax changes, including a national sales tax. Peak Passed The new budget showed the peak has passed in spending by the military forces. This year's cash outlays were listed at $41,700.000,000, two billion under last year's rate. under President Eisenhower's recent order for still further econo- He Economy Stabilized added that cost of living figures, showing one-half of one per cent increase in the past year, present "the most eloquent demonstration of a stabilized economy we could have."

Taxpayer's individu- wwu uiiiiuu unui:i mat, j'c«i a jiiie. . I J "*•.«" But foreign aid and atomic energy \ al remittances made up most spending will reach a new crest this year, with substantial reductions scheduled next year. The figures, revamped in the light of congressional appropriations, the end of the Korean War and new administrative surveys: Total government spending of $72,100,000,000 this year ; receipts of $68,300,000,000, leaving a deficit of $3,800,000,000 and a national debt at the end of the year of $271,100,005,000. The legal debt limit is 275 billions. Those figures compare with a May estimate by Eisenhower that spending would pass 74 billion and the deficit would pass 5V4 billion, and a July forecast that the debt would wind up two billion higher. The budget was 6Y 2 billion below the spending program outlined by former President Truman in his final budget message to Congress last January. It was 2\-, billion below actual spending in the year ended last June 30. The deficit was six billion less than forecast by Truman and 6'/ z billion less than last year. Prom the standpoint of total cash income and outgo, including social security funds and other trust accounts not counted in the regular budget, the deficit was estimated at only one-half billion dollars. That is the figure economists usually choose in measuring the effects of government finances on inflation. Humphrey said the cash budget actually may be balanced Plaque for Aiding Bike Event to Go To Osceola Club A plaque for aiding the Children's Bicycle Carnival held in Blytheville this week has been awarded the Osceola Kiwanis Club and Recreation Department, according to the Merchant's Division of the Chamber of Commerce and Blytheville Y. sponsors. The plaque was awarded for "cooperation displayed by the Kiwanis Club and recreation department in promoting the bicycle rodeo and helping make the entire affair a success, and for bringing Osce'bia youth' to take part in rodeo acti,vi- ties." A presentation of the plaque will be made at a later date. Worth D. Holder, Chamber of Commerce secretary, said. ,of the increase last fiscal year when the government collected a record-setting $69,687,000,000. Collections increased during the fiscal year ending last June 30 by 84,677,000,000 of which individual income and employment taxes accounted for 53,517,000,000. A report on internal revenue collections yesterday also showed that corporation income and profits • taxes, S21,595,000,000, represented an increase of $128,000,000 or 0.6 per cent—the smallest percentage increase of any category. The percentage increase for individual income and employment taxes was 10.4 and the dollar total of these taxes $37,255.000,000. They were the biggest single source of revenue, with corporation taxes next. Includes Social Security Manufacturers' excise taxes were the third largest revenue source, with a total of $2.863,000,000, an increase of 24.7 per cent. But the largest percentage increase was in gift tax collections, up 29.2 per cent to a total of 107 millions. Alcohol taxes brought in $2,781,000,000, up 9.1 per cent, and tobacco taxes $1,655,000,000, Up 5.7 per cent. The $69,687,000,000 collections used by the revenue bureau covers total receipts including such things as social security taxes which go into a government trust and not to pay for regular government op, erations. It is $4,487,000,000 more than the No Developments Reported in Safe Theff at Bassett No developments were reported by Sheriff William Berryman this morning in connection with the reported $3,000 theft at the Idaho Grocery Company in Bassett Monday night.

Of 144 exuberant Americans freed from Red prison camps today, many were captured in the first few weeks of the war. Some said they had been beaten and tortured almost until the truce July 27. The Communists also turned over 4 British, 2 South Africans and 250 South Korean prisoners. The South Africans sported six- inch beards. The Americans were laughing and happy. They seemed to be the most jubilant group of prisoners to return so far in the 24 days of Operation Big Switch. The Communists promised to return 145 more Americans, 3 Turks, 2 Australians and 250 South Ko-1 reans Saturday. : Friday's delivery brought the i number of Americans returned to 2,422 of the 3,313 the Reds said they held. The Reds have sent back a total of 9,819 of the 12,776 Allied POWs they listed. Taken to Manchuria Some Americans returned Friday told of an infamous North Korean death march early in the war when a French nun was dragged .hrough the streets of a town and shot. Pfc. Reuben K. Kimball Jr. of Baytown, Tex., said he watched ,he bitter spectacle. He said he saw the Reds kill 30 American prisoners, all but 13 of them wounded men. Sgt. Robert K. Gilmer, 20, of Richmond, Va., said the Chinese brutality at Camp 3 was not all out in the open. Other prisoners said the punished men seldom spoke of the rnistyeatr.vr t aftr--- f-t'jvn-. ing to their compounds, fearing that collaborators might report them to the Reds. The co-pilot of a U. S. B29 shot down in November, 1050. said he was taken to Manchuria for eix days with three other survivors for questioning. The flier, Capt. Billy B. Foshee, 28, of Bowling Green, Ky., said more than 200 Air Force officers held at prison camp No. 2. are now at the Red exchange grouping point of Kaesong, awaiting repatriation. Another American, Cpl. Thomas Kappel, 21, Homestead, Pa., said he saw Maj. Gen. William F. Dean, captured U. S. 24th Division commander, at a prisoners' athletic meet in Pyoktong: in November, 1952. There still was no indication when the Reds would free Dean. As the last of the day's prisoners were being exchanged, the Joint Military Armistice Commission met at Panmunjom. Maj. Gen. Blackshear M. Bryan,' chief U. N. delegate ,asked that Indian troops who will guard prisoners unwilling to return home be granted the right of movement into i and out of the neutral zone. The Communists agreed. Indian Unit Moves In An advance Indian unit moved into the demilitarized area Friday. It was a medical group which has been in Korea almost three years. The main body of Indian troops, = about 5,000, is enroute to Korea j aboard troopships and is expected i to move into the demilitarized zone about Sept. 7.

(Navy photo via AP Wirephoto) State Advised to Drop Rigkt-of-Way Business TEXARKANA (AP) — The chairman of the Texas Highway Commission last night advised the state of Arkansas to "get out of the right of way business." E. H. Thornton, Jr., a Galveston attorney, declared that the money local interests spend for right of way returns many fold to them — as well as the state at large — in increased gasoline taxes from greater use and in higher India Averts Defeat In GA by Withdrawing UNITED NATIONS, N. Y. (AP) — India averted a defeat in the U. N. General Assembly today by withdrawing as a possible participant in the Korean peace conference. The announcement was made by Indian Delegate V. K, Krishna Menon as the 60- nation assembly prepared to act on proposals for setting up the peace parley. Menon referred to the strong opposition by the United Stales and the Latin American bloc in the political committee and said: "I think the purposes of peace are best reached by not forcing the resolution on India in this as- Indin's defeat had been certain in view of the fact that yesterday's 27-21 vote in the Political Committee was far short of the required two-thirds majority. Menon said "we hope those who sponsored and supported us will not think we are running away from a battle, but we are trying to allay the heat of the battle. "We have not been a candidate but we think it the best course not to force the resolution to a decision." His announcement was greeted by applause from U. S. Delegate Henry Cabot Lodge Jr. and other opponents of India, but Soviet Delegate Andrei Y. Vishinsky did not applaud. New Zealand's Leslie Knox Munro then took the floor on behalf of the sponsoring powers and said they were withdrawing the resolution "with great regret." Lodge welcomed Menon's move the gstur rsentative of £ of a ;rat rp- greal leader of great nation." He said the/ decision of India was "generous and statesmanlike." The assembly earlier had rejected a Soviet move for a full I dress debate on the Korean peace proposals already approved by the property values.

Xhe Arkansas County Judges Asson "-tion has criticized the practice aTfd has said that"'the 1 commission should follow what the association interprets as the letter of the law and pay for half the right of way on secondary roads and the full cost on primary throughfares. The state of Texas has never paid for right of way, not even for costly expressways through large cities, and the system has worked well in that state, Thornton said. He disclaimed any intention of telling Arkansas how to run its business but said he thought the method would work in this Btate too. The means Texas cities and counties have used to provide right of way for highways are far more drastic — and expensive— than the voluntary donations which the Arkansas commission has been seeking. Bond Issues Used Thornton said local governmental units floated large bond issues when necessary to see that right of way was provided. He said counties and cities willingly co-operated in furnishing right of way and that never had been any effort to force the state to assume the burden.

Lodge, nevertheless, said the United States would begin work immediately on the task of arranging the conference. One of the decisions approved by the committee was that the United States should consult with representatives of both sides and arrange for the time and place of the parley. Geneva appeared to be the most llfce- ly site. The time must not be later than Oct. 28, under terms of the. armistice agreement. The United States regarded the defeat of India as a major victory, although Lodge insisted that See INDIA on Page 3 Posing as Campers— FBI Nabs Fugitive Commie Leaders SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Two fugitive Comumnist leaders and three alleged satellites, charged with harboring them in a remote mountain hideout, were swept up in a dramatic capture yesterday by FBI agents posing as campers. A fourth follower was picked up late last night, 100 miles away. All were jailed quickly—one of them in grim Alcatraz prison in San francisco Bay. Sixteen FBI agents in campers' blue jeans caught Robert George Thompson and Sidney Steinberg in a cabin 8.000 feet up in the rugged Sierra Nevada, about 200 miles east of San Francisco.

Immediately after India's announcement, the delegates began trooping to the rostrum to give their explanations. The Assembly was due to adopt an American-sponsored resolution — overwhelmingly okayed by the 60-nation Political Committee yesterday — that the conference Include: 1. The 16 U.N. members which supplied troops under the U.N. banner — the United States, Britain, Australia, Belgium, annda, C o 1 o r»i b i a , Ethiopia, France, Greece, Luxembourg, The Netherlands, New Zealand, The Philippines, the Union of South Africa, Turkey and Thailand. 2.

Reaction Unfavorable Soviet Delegate Andrei Vishinsky told the Political Committee Urn I the reactions of North Korea and Red China definitely would have to be considered here. And he left no doubt these reactions to the U. S.-backed conference lineup would be unfavorable. U. S. Delegate Henry Cabot Lodge Jr., said this was a veiled threat that the Communists would torpedo the conference unless they got their own way about which countries would take part. Lodge had already said that he Unied Sates would sit with India If she could win in the General Assembly. peered two years ago when or dered to report to Federal Court in New York for commitment for a three-year prison term. He will serve that three years at another prison, the FBI said. Steinberg, indicted with 21 other "second string" Reds in 1951 on similar Smith Act charges, was Jailed here on $100,000 bail. He will be arraigned for removal proceedings to face trial in New York. Steinberg protested the ball was excessive. U.

Disappeared In 1951 Hours after the first five had been arrested, FBI agents picked up Patricia Blau, 42, near Stockton Calif., and charged her •with harboring the fugitives. The FBI said an automobile found in the mountain retreat was registered under one of Mrs. Blau's six aliases.
