VAIULE WASHINGTON (AP) — President Eisenhower ptoclaims Alaska the 40lh state today, pushing the ooundnries of the United States within sight of Russian soil. At the same lime, the new 40- star; flag will be unveiled. ft Signing of the presidential proclamation at the White House at noontime was timed to coincide with oxpiiation of the 85th Congress. Several proposed flag designs Were presented to the President Friday at his Gettysburg farm frit- his final decision. The public arid organizations had submitted almost 2,000 suggestions. The now flat; becomes official ; ncxt July 4. Officials have said it ^Vould be technically incorrect to display the new flag before UILII. although there will be no penalty lor such use. Admission of Alaska as the first new state since 1912 marks Ihc .formal end of the territorial status Alaska has held since 1906. It gives Alaskans control of their government tor the first lime, as well as a voting representation in Congress. Sens -elect E L (Bob) Bartlett : <0<!nd Ernest Gruening find Eep.- ' elect Ralph J. Rivers will take their oath of office when the 86th Congress meets Wednesday All three are Democrats. Alaska's entry brings into the union a rich store; of limber, mineral and other resources. Us arer is onc-fisth that of its 48 sister states and more than twice that of Texas. With a.n estimated'' 212,000 popu- J.ation — smallest of any state — ^Alaska also will add a new ingredient to the nation's politics. In I960, Alaskans for the first lime will cast throe electoral votes for president. , , , Politically, the new slate government will be solidly Democratic. Alaska's quest for statehood has gone on since 191C—nearly half the period it has spent under the U.S. flag since Us purchase from -Rut.- — sia in 1867 for $7,200,000. ••"i 1, -rri ii'-i- m . i i ifcn i . ., • b i in •! * il,, 11 I i I.

The daily limit of change is 50 of a cent. January delivery, for which no daily limit applies, was quoted at 2,99 bid, off .67 of a cent. Sugar industry sources reported that if the Cuban civil war is nearing an end, prospects are that Cuba will produce most of the r>,- ,900,000 Spanish long tons of sugar. as recommended last week by the Cuban Sugar Institute. In preparing for the 1959 sugar production, Cuba hps about one month in which to got back to normal, In that time, all of the off-season repairs to mills, machines and equipment for harvesting and grinding the cane must jbe made, In recent weeks, world sugar advanced ,30 to ,40 of a cent a pound on the prospect that if fighting continued, Cuba would not be able lo make more tan 4,fiOO,ooo tons of sugar, Traders sold today's selling wns based on the assumption that the two-year Cuban revolt is coming to an end, So the bulk of Cuban crop will be corning to pigrkut, thus increasing the world supply, / A large ciop would mean lower pi ices, Othor major sugar suppliers to the United States are the Philippines, Pueito Rico and k 4W1-X% 4 « j$i*fr ! w« <1 yJ<**tS& AW?Y •*' &*>*?A" W ' ; PRIC6 & COPY>i| BEAUTY, ROMANCE AND HISTORY combine to make memorable the Magic Circle tour of Baton Rouge and the Acadian country.

It did so by clearing Charles Allen Taylor, whose case is be- .fpro the Supreme Court, foi' access to secret defense information. Taylor was fired from his job as a tool maker at Bell Aircraft Corp., Buffalo, N.Y., after the industrial personnel security review board of the Defense Department revoked his security clearance., The board, on the basis"ojf. information supplied by six unidentified informants found that Taylor in 1942 and 1943 had been a member, paid dues to, and held a membership card in lhe Communist party, Taylor, who made a categorical denial of the charges, demanded to know the identity of Ins ac cuscrs. The government has steadfastly contended that the right lo be confronted by accusers, which applies in criminal cases, docs not apply in security cases involving government and defense plant workers.
