TWELYV BLYTHKV1LLB (ARK.) COURIER NEWS WEDNESDAY, JUNE t, 1954 Fail in Election Quest For Farm 'Protest' By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS South Dakota Democrats failed today to reach their announced goal of "protest" votes against the administration's farm program. Even so, they demonstrated twice the voting strength they had two years ago. Before yesterday' sprimary election, Democrats in the big wheat- growing;, normally Republican state were pushing for 35,000 votes. That total, they said, would show dissatisfaction with administra tion-backed supports. But their vote appeared unlikelj to go over 30,000 *— still abou double the 1952 figure. Republican voting also fell short of a predicted 100,000 to 110,000. Three-State Highlights Other primaries also were held in Nevada and Alabama.

Each league has its own commission to supervise its play with the baseball council acting as overseer for the entire operation. All boys in these two leagues are fumishd with complete baseball uniforms by the sponsoring organization. Little League teams are sponsored by fehe Lions Club, Kiwanis Club, Rotary Club, Jaycees, American Legion, and Shrine. The four-team PONY League which begins play today, is made up of teams sponsored by churches. These are the First Christian, First Presbyterian, First Baptist and First Methodist. The Little League plays a 45- game schedule this year and the PONY League plays 24 games. 'The Pee Wee League, while set up separately with its own commission, is alrgely an adjunct of the Little League from last year when. many more boys in the 8-12 age group wanted to play than could be taken care of in one 'league. This brought about organization of the smaller boys in the Pee Wee Wee League for 8-10-year-olds as "farm clubs" of the Little League. Theae lads do not have uniforms but each boy has opportunity to win a berth with a Little League team wJbtn his size and ability warrant it Pee Wee League teams and coaches are the Wolves, Bill Wyatt; Bobcats, Bobbie Lee Smith; Panthers, Homer Smith; Bulldogs, Larry KaU; Leopards, Emery Franci§; and Cougars, Glenn Hill.

Dr. Evans argued oppen- heimer had betn cleared of the charges in-1947. * "All people are somewhat of a security risk," he asserted, adding that Oppenheimer was no exception, but that: "I personally think that our failure to clear Dr. Oppenheimer will be a black mark on the escutcheon, of our country." Gray, former secretary of the Army and now president of the University of North Carolina, joined with Morgan, former president of the Sperry Corp.. in "a clear conclusion" that Oppenheimer "is a loyal citizen." Favor Considerations Nevertheless, they said, they :ould not recommend Oppenheimer's reinstatement because of ;hese four "controlling" considerations: 1. A "serious disregard" by Oppenheimer for security requirements. 2. "Susceptibility to influence" which could hurt national security. 3. "Disturbing" conduct toward the H-bomb program. 4. Lack of candor by Oppenheimer at times during the board's hearing, such as in discussing the extent of his opposition to the H- bomb program. Court Ruling Hits Fair Trade Act BATESVILLE. Ark.

AIR BASE CLOSE OUT Many Pattern Dishes i Price Hubbord Hardware (Continued from Page tt to get the land back for Industrial purposes. It was in an effort to avoid a complete split in the mem bership that the more-or-less "status quo" motion passed, directors said. Some pointed out that complete harmony on anything was improbable and that any action would have its critics, hence a firm stand one way or another was preferable. Pessimism about the prospects of the base ever being reactivated brought the convictions of some that the entire base proposition was a "political proposition." One director candidly opined that Sen. John McClellan faced considerable opposition in his race for re-election this summer and that he was keeping the base issue alive to get support in this area. "After the election," the director said, "Blytheville and the base issue will be dead ducks." Hits Rumors Rumors about attempts to get the base land returned to the city have been current for several months. Mr. Pollard said rumors that the Chamber was trying to block reactivation were "hurting the Chamber and the city" since they were untrue. Should the Air Force ever come through with a definite "no" on the base, it was brought out, re-i :overy of the land would be attempted because of its value as an industrial site. However, the prob- :em here is one of getting the land ;urned back without a recapture clause which would permit the government to again take over the land at any time. One of the directors said he had been told in Washington that this could be accomplished but that it would require an act of Congress Actually Fade Premature Dry Skin Crow's-Feet M ake your dry skin much, much softer and you'll see those dry-skin crow's-feet at the corners of your eyes become much less noticeable.

U&-A Hash explosion early today killed two civilian workmen aboard the Navy submarine Sirago as she lay in drydock at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard. A sailor on fire watch duty nearby was burned by the blast, but his condition was described as "not critical." Six other civilians working on the submarine were not injured. Capt. Robert E. Cronin, commander of the shipyard, said the blast was in the submarine's main ballast tank, where the two vie- thus were spraying a plastic substance. He said the submarine did not appear heavily damaged. An investigation was ordered. The Navy withheld the names of the victims. The blast was the second to strike a naval vessel in one week. Last Wednesday an explosion aboard the carrier Bermington off Quonset Point, R.I., killed 100 men. One of the workmen killed on the Sirago was inside the ballast tank^and the other was working on the tank from the outside.
