It is sponsored by the Madison County Bar Assn. Florida Supreme Court Justice Millard F. Caldwell will speak in favor of the three amendments. Arthur J.

Mudge Jr., Madison County state's attorney and president of the county bar group, said the debate was scheduled after a speech by U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice Earl Warren last month calling for a "great national debate" on the amendments. First Time "To our knowledge," he said, "this is the first time a bar association or any group has ;.c- tually held a formal debate on the matter. Warren has asked bar associations, in particular, to do this and we think it is of utmost importance that we comply.

The "cattle drive" by barge u (he Mississippi and Missouri ri\ ers ended successfully Tumla when the 1,000 steers of Ger'ali Harrison of Houston, Tex., wer delivered at Omaha Neb. Harrison's cattle made a 1,400 mile trip from Greenville, Miss to Omaha on an old automobil barge converted into a feedlot The idea was intended to solv the problem of transporting th animals without their losing weight, a difficulty since the day: of the overland cattle drives. Fat tening them is expensive. Cattle lose weight when they ar< transported by truck or train which is the usual method o. shipping them, Harrison said, anc often become bruised in transit The smooth river trip got the cattle to Omaha without any los. of weight, and they may have even gained a few pounds. Aboard the barge the cattle ate an average of 28 pounds of feed a day. Harrison estimated he saved enough on freight to haul northern corn back to his herds. He has ranches in Mississippi and Arkansas. A thousand residents of Omalu. turned out to greet the arrival of the barge, "herded" upstream by a tow boat. In the last few years, commercial shipments on the Missouri river have been increasing, but this was the first instance of shipping cattle on either river. Harrison said he planned two more river shipments of catt!» this year, one in August arid the other in September. Both cattle men and rivermen are exuberant over the success of the venture, it was reported.
