Yesterday’s high, 84; low «1 ARKANSAS: Cloudy today, scattered showers tomorrow VOL. 29—NO. 254 Legislators Face Hectic Time Battle Most Of Major Fights Over; ^ Fireworks Seen RATON ROUGE (AP) — Louisiana lawmakers, weary from fussing and fighting, open the eighth week of the ID 58 Legislature Sunday with hard work ahead before the July 10 adjournment. Most of the major battles are over. House and Senate now must grind out legislation at a frantic pace to keep hundreds of bills from dying on the calendar or in committee. When the House and Senate return at 7 p.m., only one bit of essential business remains — the 384 million dollar general appro-, priations bill. The bill probably will pass the Senate Monday or Tuesday. A flurry of fireworks may erupt when the House is asked to agree to Senate amendments knocking out two House amendments. 100 Bills Ready The Senate has stayed pretty well on schedule, but faces a heavy calendar Sunday night with more than 100 bills ready for action.

Pribble Dies In Crash 0i Jei Plane U.S. Deficit Of $3-Billion For Year Due WASHINGTON (AP)-The government is due to wind up this fiscally unhappy year at midnight Monday with a deficit of 2% to 3 billion dollars. . . High administration officials predicted this Saturday. Looming ahead for fiscal 1959 beginning Tuesday is the even more dismal prospect of red ink aggregating 11; billion dollars, or perhaps close to 12 billion. This would carry the federal budget farther off balance than in any vear since World War II, j not excepting the period of the Korean War.

Inc dentally, Sam declared that he and Bob Ed Tucker who retired, last November from many years as P. A.

The Soviets reported the plane burned and the crewmen were seized. Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko was said to have as­ sured'U.S. Ambassadoi Llewellyn Thompson the men are alive. A note handed by Gromyko to Thompson protested what the Soviets called a crude violation of their frontier. They said the plane had crossed the Soviet Armenian border and had flown up to 105 miles inside Soviet te ritory. They said the plane traveled almost 50 miles more before it was forced to land. Protest Note The protest note said the plane was a four-engine military craft of the U.S. Air Force and that its crew" wore U.S. military uniforms. (The U.S. Defense Department in Washington said Saturday night it had received a report that a transport type aircraft, believed to be a Cl 18 with nine persons aboard, was unreported on a flight from Nicosia, Cyprus, to Teheran, Iran, by way of Turkey. The Cl 13 is a military version of a Douglas DC6A four-engine transport. (The department said it had no further details immediately.) Thompson, asked for comment, said he had no details or information other than the statements made in the Soviet note. Embassy sources, who said the plane may have lost its way on its way on a flight to or from adjoining Turkey, said there was no indication of the type of plane or at A career man in the service, I Fant Pribble was a pilot in the its mission.
