BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS WEDNESDAY, JULY 14, 1964 Ike Satisfied with Congress's Action on His Leagislative Program By JAMES MARLOW WASHINGTON (AP) — President Eisenhower says he feels pretty good about the Congress, almost evenly divided among Democrats and Republicans, has treated his program The full treatment won't be known until Congress winds up its work, perhaps at the end o this month. Eisenhower wants the voters in the November congressional elections to judge his Re publican administration by the kind of program Congress enacts. * ——— _—_ Here is the record to date: Passed by both House and Senate and now law: American participation in the St. Lawrence seaway; extension of the Reciprocal Trade Act for one year; a defense pact with South Korea; creation of an Air Force academy; extension of major excise tax rates and cutting of others; providing two billion dollars for highway construction; and increasing the borrowing power of the Commodity Credit Corp, Passed by both houses but with differences which require compromise before final passage which seems assured in some form: A general overhaul of the tax laws and a housing act. Housing: Plan Approved The Senate gave Eisenhower most of what he wanted on housing: authority to build 35,000 public units a year for four years; continuing government-i n s u r e d loans on homes; and use of one billion dollars for slum clearance. The House, which had acted ahead of the Senate, wanted no part of the 35,000 public housing units. Whether the House will yield now and go along with the Senate is not known. Passed by one house and therefore not law unless the other also approves: The S^-billion-doliar foreign aid bill; the farm bill: the wire-tapping •bill; and the social security bill. The house has passed the foreign aid bill. The Senate hasn't voted yet. But it seems pretty sure Eisenhower will get a sizable chunk of the 3& billion dollars he asked. Eisenhower won a victory, not yet complete, when the House approved the farm bill with recognition of the principle that there should be a sliding scale — 82% to 90 per cent of parity — on farm price supports for basic products. Supports have been at 90 per cent LADY BULLFIGHTER HAS NARROW ESCAPE — Twenty-three- year-old Bette Ford, former Broadway actress, was knocked down four times in her formal debut at Plaza de Toros^ in Juarez, Mexico, but was uninjured. Bullfight fans acclaimed her for her bravery and beauty, but withheld judgment of her ability because of poor luck in drawing stubborn and unresponsive animals. (AP Wirephoto) the Senate, when it votes, will go along. . . , The White House wanted a law permitting use of- wire-tapped in- ormation in trials of subversives. The House voted for such a bill, in modified form. The Senate may not. The House pieased Eisenhower by approving ; a bill to widen the ocial security program, bringing - under its coverage up to 10 million for years. It's uncertain, whether more people. The Senate seems likely to go along. Many Left What Eisenhower asked for and hasn't got so far: Reinsurance on private health insurance; statehood for Hawaii; revision of '• the" Taft-Hartley * Act; a- constitutional amendment permitting 18-year-olds to vote; and revision of the Atomic Energy Act to permit this government to give allies more atomic information. The Democrats, by teaming up, Mississippi Battles For Segregation By SAM JOHNSON JACKSON, Miss. Gft—A state constitutional amendment opening the door for abolishing public schools was recommended by Mississippi's committee seeking ways to dodge the U.S. Supreme Court decision outlawing racial segregation in public education. Gov. Hugh White announced he would call the Legislature into special session early in September to consider the proposed amendment to Mississippi's 64-year-old onstitution. It would authorize the 'Legislature by a two-thirds vote to abolish public schools, statewide or on a local option basis, if necessary to maintain segregation. Members of Mississippi's Legal Education Advisory Committee de- fired it would be used only as a ast resort. The amendment is viewed as a safeguard if Negroes try to force school integration. It could be held over their heads as a threat—cooperate or lose your public schools. Private, segregated schools w#h tate aid could be set up under the amendment, which would wipe ut the present constitutional re- .uirement that public schools be rovided. The advisory committee said it would recommend that the Legis- ature get started on a building rogram to improve Negro schools ut only if the proposed constitu- DELICATE JOB — John E Peurifoy, U S ambassador to Guatemala, played an important part in the truce between the anti-Reds and the Arbenz government He was active in negotiating formation of a second ruling junta and starting cease-fire talks 5 Reds' Boil Fire Reds' Bail Requests Okayed ST. LOUIS {.fl — Applications for bail by five Communists pending appeal of their conviction on charges of conspiring to advocate the forcible overthrow of the government were granted yesterday by the U. S. Court of Appeals. The appellate court set bond for the communists at $20,OC. each. Bail applications were denied by the appeals court for Louis Shoulders and Elmer Dolan, former St Louis policemen convicted of perjury as an aftermath of the Greenlease -kidnaping case, and for an- thony Lopiparo, under 18-month Barking Dogs Now Con Start Earlier WATERTOWN, N. Y. <£>—A barking dog's life, the City Council says, can begin an hour earlier each morning. The Council voted to amend a recent ordinance that stipulated that dogs ''are not permitted to howl or bark between the hours of 11 p.m. and 8 a.m. so as to disturb the neighbors." Yielding slightly to the protests of dog owners who had trouble convincing their pets, the councilmen moved the morning curfew back to 7 a.m. sentence for criminal contempt of court. Woman Bus Driver Honored SAN FRANCISCO (ft — Pacific Greyhound lines yesterday said it has the only woman driver with a recognized 10-year safety record of heavy-duty driving. She is auburn-haired Helene O. Dearman of San Francisco, 5 foot 4 and 125 pounds, who pilots a 13- ton bus through heavy commuter traffic.

The House wanted statehood for Hawaii only. 5 robable result: statehood for either.
