P»ot I Zljr . •ajjlmutt Urges Mandatory Program -KEEP POLITICS OUT OF IT, SAYS MILLIONAIRE FARMER rooo By Sam LeH My GAYUml) I*. GODWIN" WASHINGTON —UP— Bob C. Cooper, a chunky, white-haired. 63-year-old farmer, banker.' and livestock feeder o.'. .; Omaha. Neb., has two solutions to farm problems of low income, over-production, and huge surpluses. •: He would segregate agrftulture from politics and make government farm programs mandatory. Cooper has been farming for more than 40 years.'He has bought and sold livestock on P. commission basis, and operates a bank at Pil- g-er, Neb. He's been successful at n\\ his jobs, especially after a financial setback in 1927 which'put him several thousand dollars in debt. He bounced back — with a bang. He now owns and operates IS farms, a commercial feed lot. and ihe bank at Pilg-cr. He doesn't owe a dime. His net worth is in the million*, and lie has more cash lhan the average salaried person earns in a lifetime. • Cooper's financial worth, garner- pel from the soil and livestock, should give authenticity to his views on" problems of farm income and -production. He "spent a lew days in Washington listening to Senate- debate on the farm bill. He iold the United Press the debate sounded like Southwest Warned Against Becoming One-Product Area SAN ANTONIO — UP — The Southwest Monday was urged to avoid the danger of becoming- a one-nroduet economy as it once xvas" a one-crop economy, by a Southwest Research Institute scientist. The attraction of the wealth of oil has led to neglect of other potentially dynamic resources, said Robert" Boyd Ladd. editor of the Southwest Resources Handbook, in an article in Texas - Parade. He urged exploration of other abundant" .natural resource fields such e.z the many clays scattered throughout Arkansas. Arizona, Louisiana. Texas/ New Mexico, and Oklahoma. These can be used' as sources of mineral fillers in paper. rubber paints and other,industries. Light weight, materials have ass v m e (3 increasingly important roles. Ladd said, and the clay sand nor-mctallics could become as important to the economy of the Southwest as petroleum and metals have been "in the past. Possibilities have barely been scratched for locating and exploiting lisrJte deposits as a source of fuel and chemicals, and for byproducts such as montaii wax, he said. T!i« Southwest Resources Handbook, to be published by the non- p-ofi; San Antonio institution later thi? year, will contain material on suoh" new opportunities for the Southwest. Packard Has Net Loss Of S29J Million In'55 DETROIT —UP— Studebaker- PackanJ Corp. Saturday reported a net loss of S29.7 million during 1955. The company's annual re-port to shareholders said total consolidated sales were S4SO million in 'the first full, year of operations since Packard 5.1otor Car Co. and the Sludebaker Corp. were combined in September. 1954. Working- capital at the end of 1955 was $54*8 million, the report said. The statement also called factory sales to dealers so far this year "disappointing-." It said this was due in part to record inventories of unsold cars with which the industry entered ; the new year. most of the senators were thinking- about next fall's election instead of the farmer. He got disgusted and drove to St. Petersburg, Fla., for a vacation. To isolate agriculture from politics. Cooper would divide the United States into three zones — East. West, and South. Farmers and ranchers eligible for farm quotas and government payments in each zone would elect representatives to •a national agricultural committee. The committee would have an understanding: of climatic, supply, and production conditions in each zone. The members would decide what farm programs' would be carried out in each zone. All farm programs would be mandatory. The.only- restriction on 'he programs would be ?, regxila- •iion to prevent ceiling prices to go beyond 90 to 110 per cent of parity. Cooper said his plans would re- Nash Purchasers Given A $25.000 Insurance Nicy Bavtown Nash dealer Willis Cobb has announced that each purchaser of a new Jvash Ambassador, Statesman, Rambler or Metropolitan jsoxv arc receiving, at no extra cost. a. S25.000 personal automobile accident insurance policy. *'This insurance program reflects our confidence in the single- unit car, construction used to build a!l Nash cars," said Cobb. whose dealership is located ac 407 W. Texas. *••''• . • Cobb said the policy provides J.25,000 coverage for purchaser and spouse in the event of fatality to both, or S12.500 in the event of fatality to one, while driving or riding tn the privately-owned iNasn car. The insurance is> in effect; for the entire year following original purchase of the car and" can only be cancelled within that period by transfer of auto ownership. Inspiration for the program came from the frequent letters of owners who credited the saving of their Hves to the built-in safety of single-unit constructed cars in accidents they described as being "otherwise fatal." duce surpluses and keep farmers from overproducing. Consequently, .with surpluses down and supply in correct ratio to demand, farm prices would rise to parity. Cooper claims government-controlled agriculture will work only with undcr-prodiiction. Government controlled agriculture in times of surpluses, he said, only tend to increase surpluses.

" : -'; " .' ' . Anti-segregationists called the move the greatest breakthrough for personal freedom since emancipation, while staunch advocates of segregation damned it as an illegal decision, and forecast a certain breakdown of Southern -culture and way of life. Just where does Texas stand - on, segregation 10 months after the U. S. Supreme.. Court ' acted May It. 1955? There's :ib one answer. Persons with the same general viewpoint could reach different conclusions about what has happened. An aggressive member of the National Association for Advancement of Colored People might say Texas desegregation so far is too little and much too slow for his liking. Another, more moderate desegregation advocate could point to partial elimination of segregation in scores of fields as the trickle which could wipe out the racial dam. A .survey of segregation in Texas covering the last year or less points to two significant developments: 1, Integration is taking place in Texas in many public and semi-private fields, but slowly, and certainly not over the whole range of the issue. ..2. The NAAGP hasn't lost a Texas college or university desegregation ! fight yet in the courts.

Saturday evening: "The Preacher Who Was XVrong'' Sunday evening: -How It Pays to Be a Christian" While those changes were going on. integration forces suddenly faced battle on two new fronts last week. Gov. Allan Shivers, who up to then had taken no strong, positive action to preserve segregation, announced strong support of interposition. This is a legal theory' which in effect claims the federal government is unconstitutionally stepping on states rights. It could nullify the Supreme Court decision, some think. Probably the most unexpected blow to integration forces came from Dr. W. A. Criswell, pastor of the huge, rich and:, influential First Baptist Church of Dallas. Probably no pastor in the South has as much influence on Southern Baptists, and Baptists front a great segimont of the region. Dr. Criswell said integration is "a thing of idiocy and foolishness." He was speaking of integration in churches. And other Baptists were quick to say he spo'ke only for himself. But It would be "beyond reason not to Admiral To Check Houston Reserves HOUSTON—UP— Rear Admiral Daniel V.
