THURSDAY, JUNE IT, 1954 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE Big Defense Money Bill Slated For Vote Amid Demo Protests WASHINGTON (AP) — The biggest money bill of the year came up for possible Senate passage today amid Democratic cries that the Eisenhower defense budget is taking a "terrible gamble" with the nation's security. At least one Democrat-sponsored move and perhaps more were afoot to tack more millions on the $29,217,106,486 annual military funds bill that went through a round of Senate debate yesterday. The measure carries appropriations for the Army, Navy, Air Force and related activities for the year beginning July 1. Sen. Symington (,D-Mo), a former secretary of tile Air Force, told ^newsmen in advance erf today's session that he would seek another 100 to 250 million dollars for research and development of guided missiles, rockets and other new weapons. And Sen. Kennedy (D-Mass), leader of a Democratic group which unsuccessfully tried to add 350 millions for continuation of two Army divisions which would be eliminated under the present budget, said he was looking for a means to offer the amendment again today. Otherwise Senate consideration was highlighted by a contention from Sen. Gore (D-Tenn) that the pared-down defense budget was a "terrible gamble" with security of this nation and the free world, and by similar protests from Democratic Senators Monroney (Okla), Humphrey (Minn\ Mansfield (Mont) .and Maybank (.SO. 6 Africans Hold First Election ACCRA, Gold Coast (ff) — Partial returns today from the Gold Coast's general election gave Prune Minister Kwame Nkrumah's independence-seeking Convention People's party a clear majority in this British colony's new Assembly. ISTkrumah probably will be invited to form a new government later today when he calls on the colony's British governor, Sir Charles Arden- Clarke. With 89 of the 104 Assembly seats decided. Nkrumah's faction had garnered a total of 58 to the combined opposition's 31. The balloting for the seats in this first all-native asembly in colonial Africa was held Tuesday. The Convention People's party has been the dominant faction in the Gold Coast since 1951.

ON HER WAY - Wearing • short hairdo and a white gown, Mieko Kondo, newly chosen Miss Japan of 1954, poses in Tokyo Mieko is looking forward to her trip to Long Beach, Calif., where she'll compete for the "Miss Universe" titlt.' ARTHRITIS RHEUMATISM Pains Jte/i'cve4 Af Once LOS ANGEGLES W) — The Unit States, says Adm. Arthur Radford, is confronted with "the diabolical enmity of international communism," and the threat is growing. The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff recalled last night President Eisenhower's warning that American freedom Is threatened so long as "the world Communist conspiracy exists in its present scope, power and hostility/ » "Today, the threat seems even more intense," Radford said in addressing the national convention of the American Red Cross. The admiral spoke at the concluding session of the three-day meeting. Earlier, the organization's national chairman had some more to say about cities which accept Red Cross money when disaster strikes but fail to make reimbursements to the relief agency from supplemental funds raised locally. This was a subject which touched off a cross-country controversy Monday night. Radford, in discussing the Communist menace, termed Red China "obviously empire-bound, seeking not so much an 'Asia for Asiatics' as they claim but seeking instead what might be called a 'Red Asia for Asiatic Reds'. They want all of Asia incorporated into a Red Asia, one that is a basic part of the long term Communist dream of one 'big Red world'." The military situation of free Asian and southwest Pacific na tions could be improved materially, he said, "by an effective Southeast Asia collective security arrangement." "Positive collective actions by countries which have vital interests in that area would help prevent further Communist empire building" in that part of the world," he said. "Such actions would help pave the way for building that peaceful world Which is the aim of free societies everywhere." Detective's Wife Foils Hold-Up TULSA, Okla. f/P) — A man approached Mrs. Dorothy Raiford's teller window in the Peoples State Bank yesterday and shoved her a note- It said her husband—a city detective—and her son were outside in an automobile and instructed her to hand over a sack of bills or they would be harmed. "Don't be foolish," it added. To the bandit's astonishment, Mrs. Raiford darted outside her cage. The man fled, minus any loot. with Mrs. Raiford in pursuit and shouting to other employes to follow. Within 10 minutes police found the fugitive hiding in a garage less than a block from the bank. He (Detective Sgt. Felix Raiford) was home with their son at the time of the attempted robbery. Later in the day federal charges of bank robbery were filed against Ralph J. Addington, 35, of Tulsa.

'Anti-Wetback' Drive Launched Officers Carry Out Brownell's Order on Mexicans in U.S. EL CENTRO. Calif. tf» — Law enforcement agencies moved in mass against the wetbacks today, carrying out Atty. Gen. Brownell's order to send home Mexican nationals who »re in this country illegally. Three ot the drive's leaders said advance publicity had rendered Operation Wetback a premature success. They said most of the wetbacks apparently had taken the hint and scurried across the line. They based this view on the fact that officers were having seome difficulty rounding up the aliens, and at the same time they expressed some concern over the voluntary exodus. One of the three leaders, Herman R- Landon, district immigration director at Los Angeles, said he feared those who departed ahead of the drive may" be hiding out across the border, waiting for an opportunity to hop back into the United States. He said he felt easier about those who are officially escorted out. since they are sent into the interior of Mexico. Landon; Marcus T. Neelly, district immigration director at El Paso. Tex.: and Harlon B. Carter, chief of thf> -U.S. border patrol, told a- news conference yesterday of the government's plans for the drive. Carter said the broder patrol force, in California and Arizona, would total about 750. or-500 more than the normal total. He said a mobile striking force has been set up in addition to the patrols along the border in the two states. This task force, said Carter, emphasizes speed and mobility, making use of jeep-aircraft teams, roadblocks on roads leading north and other techniques. The three officials said that pre- drive efforts in the last five days have rounded up 9,380 wetbacks, mostly transients, in California and Arizona. Of these, 5,222 were sent by bus to Nogales from El Centre. HOLLAND NEWS By Mrs. Voris Workman Vocation is the time when people go and lie on the beach about how important they are at home.
