BL1TM1Y1LLI (ARK.T OOTJRfflR NEW! MONDAY, JUWB M f 1954 Truce Plans Drawn For Laos. Cambodia GENEVA (AP) Indochina conference delegates worked in private meetings today to arrange military negotiations for a cease-fire in Laos and Cambodia. The formal nine-power sessions were recessed until tomorrow. Red China's Premier-Foreign Minister Chou En-lai was the only top conference figure still in Geneva. U.S. Under Secretary of State Walter Bedell Smith, British Foreign Secretary Anthony Eden and j Soviet Foreign inister V, M. • Molotov all flew home over the weekend. Chou. was reported ready to follow their example later this week. French Premier-Foreign Minister Pierre Mendes-France delayed his arrival at the conference to actively push his campaign for peace in Indochina. He promised the French National Assembly he would resign unless he got an armistice by July 20. French delegation sources expected him here sometime later this week. Before their departure, Eden, Molofcov and Smith agreed with the other conference delegates that separate, direct military negotiations would be held on Laos and Cambodia. They already are under 'way for Viet Nam. , Cambodian Foreign Minister Tep .Phann opened discussions with Chou yesterday but there was no immediate contact between the representatives of Laos and Cambodia and those of the Communist- led Vietminh. A main question to be decided was who would take part in the direct talks and whether they would be held in Geneva or in Indochina. The two Indochinese kingdoms have made it clear they will not negotiate with representatives of the Communist "resistance governments," which they and the French contend are "phantoms" with no popular support. The Laotians and Cambodians want to deal only with the Viet-j minh. charging it is their forces Who have invaded their territory, j Saturday's agreement called for the military representatives to report on the cease-fire talks for all three Indochina states within three weeks, or by July 10.

"FLYING HARMONICA"—This designer's sketch, looking like a giant harmonica, shows Bell Aircraft Corporation's projected "flying wing" helicopter, now in preliminary design stages at the firm's Fort Worth, Tex., plant. The craft, a straight, flat wing, with just a bit of a nose, represents an entirely new concept of rotor-wing craft. The wing has a rotor mounted on each tip. It has two piston engines, convertible to gas turbines, either one of -rhich can fly the wing adequately. Thickness of the wing permits completely retractable landing gear and interior placement of engines without external nacelles. Ail passengers will have front-facing seats with forward view. The Bell wing's speed has not been announced, except that it will exceed that of the latest model helicopters. Early models are expected to carry 20 to 50 passengers. largely 17.25-19.25: heavier sows 14.50-16.75; a few over 500 Ib 14.00.

Will it be too high? It might appear to be more economical to wait for a downward curve in the whole structure of prices and wages before undertaking the kind of construction programs required to meet our needs. But where are the signs that such a curve is in the making? And how long can we afford to wait? It took just one hot. dry summer to imperil the water supply of many millions of people. Suppose next year—or the year after— brings similar conditions? Picture a shortage that goes beyond the critical stage. New York was only days away from such a crisis. Some smaller places went through it. Picture a water supply inadequate to handle a serious fire Picture a water supply Insufficient to maintain proper sanitation. Picture a water supply no longer able to keep industrial processes functioning. The price of keeping pace with the need for water may seem high, but what about th pric of failure? One uncontrolled fire, one epidemic, a group of major industires lost to the community—any of these could involve an expense beside 'which the price of imported water supplies even with costs what they are —would hardly be rioticable. Water is essential to life—the life of a city as well as the life of a human being. Without water, a man dies. Without water, a community faces the same fate. In th'e face of a crisis, no price can be too high. High prices paid to prevent a crisis are low prices! Blytheville Water Co "Wottr It Your Cheapest Commodity' Final Remarks Bring Praise To McClellan By GORDON BROWN WASHINGTON W — Probably no comment or statement which Sen. John L. McClellan (D-Ark) made during the long McCarthy - Army hearings evoked as much public response as did his two brief remarks the final day. The hearings ended late Thursday, and several hundred telegrams and telephone calls had arrived by Friday noon. Virtually all complimented him on his remarks. , In the morning session, McClellan coldly laid the dispute in the lap of the Republican party. "Disgraceful" And in the afternoon, he gave his opinion that the events leading up to the hearings were "deplorable and unpardonable." "They will be recognized and long remembered as one of the most disgraceful episodes in the history said. McClellan's more and take us into your confidence and welcome our help you will have a better administration and a better government,' 'he said. "You can always have the co- of our government," he, operation of this Democrat," he morning remarks were in reply to Sen. McCarthy's efforts to blame Democrats for the Army charges. "Bear in mind," he told Chairman Mundt (R-SD), "that everything that is under investigation here now occurred when the Democratic members were not on this committee. We were off of this committee in protest to a situation that obviously led to this tragic situation. I can do no more except to offer to assist." McClellan referred to the fact that Democrats left the McCarthy committee to protest McCarthy's sole right to hire and fire staff members and the practice of having one-man hearings. "If you Republicans would consult with the Democrats a little ington. said, "in anything that is right, and certainly you can have it wholeheartedly to the full extent and limit of my energies and capacities when the sole purpose and the primary purpose is to ferret out Communists or .to expose Communist infiltration." He told Mundt. "The best way to get co-operation, however, is to reciprocate." Now that the hearings are ended McClellan hopes to be able to devote more time to his re-election campaign, in Arkansas. Up to now about all he has been able to do is to make flying trips to Arkansas each week-end. Now, he said, he hopes to spend considerable time in the state and making only flying trips to Wash- C/)orges McClellan With Voting for 'Giveaways' LITTLE ROCK (£)—Sid McMalh yesterday said Sen. John McClellan surely would be defeated "if the people of Arkansas understood two giveaway bills he has supported." .The former governor spoke at a statewide meeting of supporters of his campaign to defeat Sen. McClellan for the Democratic nomination to the senate. The meeting was attended by McMath backers to whom letters were sent. There was no prior public announcement. McMath said one "giveaway" bill was the "tidelands" oil legislation. He said the other was a law passed during closing days of the last Congressional session. That bill, he said, was passed to allow payment of a two billion dollar German bond issue. McMath said the bonds were purchased by private U. S. investors before World War two, with U. S. funds. McMath called McClellan "cosponsor" of the "tidelands" bill. The law, for which the Senator voted, declared state ownership of off-shore oil lands as far out as 10 miles. McMath said that for some years past "you haven't had a vote in the U. S. Senate." The former governor and candidate for senator referred to the frequent occasions on which his I posing McClellan for nomination to another term. The others are National Committeeman Paul Chambers of Helena and Leonard Ellis of Little Rock. McClellan, and vote on oposite opponent. Sen. Sen. Fulbright sides. "The votes cancel each other out," McMath said. To no one's surprise, McMath indicated that he thought that nearly always the McClellan side was the wrong one. Several hundred persons attended yesterday's meeting.
