The call for consultation among the big-power representatives — preferably to be held in Berlin- was issued by the United States, Britain and France in similarly worded notes handed to the So- themselves and help the nation. viets jn Moscow< The United Auto Workers president exhorted an American Fed- struck with devastating force j y/est Berliners were hot with :. erat ' on of ^ Teachers (AFL-CIO) Tuesday and sent rumbles later angcr aDOU t the slaying Thursday convention Thursday night to the Adriatic.

He said the strike left nine local em- ployes including himself, a chief agent and seven agents out of work. „ An estimated $12,000 in payroll was lost locally during the strike, he said. He estimated that the parish has lost approximately $2,(100 in landing fees when the airline suspended its 10 Lake Charles flights. The Regular Army has five more combat-ready divisions than when the tension over Berlin last year resulted in the government's decision to summon reserve forces for active duty in this country. About 119,000 Army reservists and National Guardsmen were hours of a buildup decision. As of now, military leaders see nothing that requires any deployment of forces. But plans, detailed down to the smallest item, are ready for an emergency in Europe or elsewhere. The death toll rose to 17.

German occupation agreements and proclaiming the West will not lin was about to change its mind this time. The Western note, as did the public declaration Thursday, contended the responsibilities of the four-power occupation command to govern Berlin still exist despite the Soviet claim that the military governing group has gone out of business. However, the Western call did not specify that the Berlin meeting be held by military commandants. It left open the question who would talk for the four nations. Amid the wave of incidents and diplomatic activity, U.S. diplomats held out hope that the Berlin crisis will be kept under control by a combination of Western diplomatic firmness and moderation on tha scene in Berlin.

Corn, hay and other livestock feeds have been damaged severely, a release from Pearce's office said, as well as cane, and in some instances, rice and cotton. The statement said a lack of pastures was causing heavy marketing of livestock which in soma instances had been reflected by lower prices. U.S. Secretary of Agriculture OrvilJe Freeman was asked last week to grant drought relief to some 20 parishes but he had not replied to the request. The statement gave this procedure for obtaining drought relief: The action must be initintod and approved by the parish disaster committee and then ap- i proved by the state disaster aim- jmittee. The latter group is com- i posed of the chairman of tha state Agricultural Stabilization Committee, the director of tha Agricultural Extension Service and the administrator of ilia Farmers Home Administration.
