Girard said Saturday he is embarrassed by the U.S. Army's proposal settlement of $1,748 in sympathy money as well as a $15,000 damage award Farm Income, Prices Rising, Benson Says Agriculture 'Turning Corner to Prosperity'; Programs Need Revising HURON, S.D. MV-Secretary of Agriculture Benson said Saturday agriculture has turned the corner toward prosperity. But he added that revised federal farm programs are needed to help improve the situation. v Benson said farm income and prices are on the rise, that farm assets have climbed to a new record high, that price-depressing farm surpluses have been cut considerably and that farm exports are at an all-time high. < "Family farms continue to dominate the agricultural scene as large-scale farms are about 4 per cent of commercial farms, about the same as 30 years ago," he said. Speaks at Fair Benson gave this appraisal of the farm situation in a speech prepared for the South Dakota State Fair. He said "we are now ready for a next step" in what he called "the continuing debate on farm policy." "We should move away from the fixed formulas in the old (price support) law which, as they now stand, require price support levels to be raised as soon as soon as surpluses are moved," Benson said. "If these formulas are not modified, the stage is set for surplus number two as soon as we dispose of surplus number one." World Changing Benson said the world is in the midst of great scientific and mechanical changes in farming which i „, hi ., . „„_ . ,- • he said will provide greater j S. chni 5^ ^ h * 3 Car " abundance of farm products.

Sakai Thursday turned down the Army offer—traditional in Japan and a regular Army practice when Japanese are killed in accidents involving Americans. The larger damage award was proposed in Congress by Rep. Fulton .(R-Pa). "I am not against money if it carries love with it, but it angers me to think that some people feel the loss of my wife and the children's mother can be rectified by a sum of money," Sakai said.

IOWA TRAFFIC DEATHS By The Associated Press Sept. 7, 1957 476 Sept. 7, 1956 . 485 Republican Is New D.M. Postmaster DES MOINES iff)—Des Moines Saturday no longer had the largest postoffice in the United States headed by a woman. Miss Edith Johnson, 56. postmaster since 1940. was fired Friday and immediately was replaced by David H. Crenshaw, 58, Des Moines abstractor. Crenshaw was sworn in as acting postmaster. Miss Johnson is a Democrat. Crenshaw is a Republican. Miss Johnson said in a statement her removal constituted "political persecution." She said she would appeal her discharge to the U.S. Civil Service Commission. The removal charges against Miss Johnson said she had not delegated sufficient responsibility to the assistant postmaster and that she failed to adjust adequately to changes in postoffice management. „ "I was not satisfactory because I am not a Republican, that's all there is to it," Miss Johnson said. Miss Johnson was being paid $11,600 a year. In Washington, Bert B. Barnes, assistant director of the bureau of postoffice operations, denied the removal was for political reasons. He said civil service regulations were followed "carefully and correctly" in removing her. nell, in their 45-minute meeting, discussed possible steps the federal government might take, depending on whether the judge decides one way or the other. But, the press secretary said, he wasn't going to disclose what alternatives were considered. Furthermore, he said, there was no decision on steps that might be taken. Hagerty said, too: "There was a general discussion of National Guard and the authority the President has that affects the National Guard." The press secretary did not amplify that point Strike of 22 Ties Up 2 St. Louis Dailies ST.

Wolf Whistles Ruled No Excuse For Cut in Taxes BRISTOL, England <« — Simon Pinder told a Valuation Court Friday he should pay less tax on his house because his pretty dark haired wife attracts so many wolf whistles. He said boys from a nearby naval cadet school always seem to take their practice marches past his home. And they can't keep their eyes to the front when they see Mrs. Pinder in the garden. "On a fine day she cannot sit there without provoking wolf whistles and peculiar looks," Pinder complained. The court however decided that the 40 pounds <$112* assessment was fair despite the wolf whistling. for night work. Their pay now is $3.25 an hour on the day shift. The St. Louis Newspaper Publishers Assn., representing the two newspapers in negotiations, said it has offered 25 cents an hour increase over a two-year period.

Eisenhower's reaction to expressed fears from Syria's Arab neighbors was made known by Secretary of State Dulles after an urgent two hour White House conference. Dulles, flanked by Deputy Under Secretary Loy Henderson, read a three page statement to reporters. He refused to go beyond it. Dulles said Henderson reported to Eisenhower on his 14-day fact finding trip to the Middle East during which he talked to leaders of the countries bordering on Syria—Turkey, Lebanon, Iraq and Jordan. Dulles said Henderson reported - found deep concern he ^ among these leaders about growing Communist domination and a buildup of Soviet arms beyond defensive needs in Syria. The cabinet member said Henderson reported border incidents and subversive activities apparently directed at Syria's neighbors. Eisenhower's reaction, Dulles said, was to appraise this gloomy report in the light of the United Nations Charter "which denies Syria the right of any use of force except in self defense." Dulles said Eisenhower recalled that in a message to Congress last Jan. 5 the President cited Russia's longtime ambition to dominate the Middle East and its current activities to rob Syria 'of its independence. He said Eisenhower was "determined to carry out our national policy" of opposing such Soviet moves. Dulles disclosed that America* programs of economic aid. as well as arms shipments, are being speeded up for Syria's neighboring countries. r Eisenhower already has ordered airlifting of U.S. weapons to Jordan, and is reported considering flying arms to Iraq also. Dulles said that, after hearing Henderson's report, Eisenhower expressed hope that international communism would not push Syria into acts of aggression against Syria's neighbors. 14 Bands Now Entered in Event Plans for holding the first annual Western Iowa Band Festival in Carroll, September 28, were virtually assured Saturday when two more acceptances brought the number of participating bands to a total of 14.
