The President returned to Washington last evening from Augusta, Ga., where he and Mrs. Eisenhower had been since Christmas Day. While there, the President played a little golf but spent most of his time working on recommendations to Congress, Besides the State of the Union message, these include the federal budget, to be submitted about mid- month, and a message on the national economy, now on the subject of partisan debate, which may go to Capitol Hill late in January. Also, it was announced at Augusta Saturday, there will be five separate message spelling out In detail proposals for (1) tax law' revision, (2) changes in the Taft- Hartley labor relations act, (3) * new farm program, (4) expansion of social security and public health benefits and (5) a revised housing program. With 48 Democrats to 47 Republicans 1 independent in the Senate, Eisenhower will need some Democratic votes to put over any controversial features of his program. Heightening the tension is the fact that this is, an election year. Many Controversies Already the agenda is studded with issues of great potential controversy: Hawaii statehood, the St. Lawrence seaway, a proposal to limit treaty-making powers, taxes, international trade gnd tariffs, Taft-Hartley revision, foreign military and economic aid, postal rates,, proposals to make some wiretapping legal, the level of gov- Army Presses Plans for Nike Rocket Bases WASHINGTON W>)— The Army reportedly hopes to overcome a half- year lag In its schedule for setting up Nike guided , missle launching bases and have about 12 ready by midsummer.

MCCLELLAN (Continued from Page 1) terms In the House before entering the Senate in 1941. McClellan defeated Jack Holt, then state attorney general and now a Little Rock lawyer, for the Senate In the 1942 primary. He hasn't been opposed In a party primary since then, and has faced only token opposition In the general elections. But one of the potent campaigners, Episcopal Bishop Conducts Service At Church Here The Rt. Rev. R. Bland Mitchell bishop of the Arkansas diocese of the Episcopal Church, yesterday conducted confirmation services at St. Stephen's Episcopal Church here. 'Bishop Mitchell also delivered the sermon at the 11 a.m. services Prior to,the confirmation service, the Rev. •William J. Fitzhugh, priest in charge of St. Stephen's, conducted baptism services. In observance of Epiphany, a Feast of Lights service will be conducted at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday. According to available records, it will be the first time the Feast of Lights service has been conducted at the church here. Following this service, the annual meeting of the congregation will be held at 8 p.m. A new Executive Committee to serve for the coming year will be elected at this business cession. Kennett, Man, 2 Others Flee Paragould Jail PARAGOULD l/fl — A Kennett, Mo., man was among three who broke out of the Greene County jail Saturday night. Sheriff Chester Shirley said John McNew, 32, of Kennett, Johnny Gaither, 22, and Mickey Mandle, 41, both of Greene County, escaped by sawing through a window lock and two steel bars. Gaither and Mandle were retaken near their homes early yesterday, 'Shirley'said, but McNew still is at large. The sheriff said McNew had escaped previously from jails at Kennett and Flint, Mich. MR FORCE (Continued from Pift 1) factors in mind Unt President El- senhower spoke >l*st week of "our growing natlonil air power," which he snid possesses greater mobility and striking power than ever before. In that same statement announcing the planned withdrawal of two Army divisions from Korea he warned that, if the Asiatic Communists should break the truce In Korea, in all probability It would not be possible to confine hostilities to Korea. That strongly implied warning that American air power would be loosed upon the homeland of the Chinese Reds In event of truce violation was in marked contrast to policies expressed when the Korean War was at its height. Top Air Force officials then advised both the Defense Department and Congress that It would be unwise to attempt bombing Manchuria. The reasons given were two; that in such an operation Soviet- made jet fighter attacks could be expected to cause heavy loss of U. S. bombers, and that there was a lack of profitable targets for the use of atomic bombs. But the Eisenhower statement presumably reflected a substantially changed picture. It Includes these elements: 1. Full-scale production has been attained which could replace aircraft last with modern, Jet-powered bombers. Fewer Sent, Fewer Lost 2. The use of jet bombers would reduce the percentage of losses to enemy interception. 3. If atomic weapons were used in strategic attack (and the administration has made it clear that would be done if circumstances warrant) fewer aircraft would be needed to produce the same bomb ng results. If 4 fewer planes were sent out on a mission, fewer would be lost. 4. Whether a target Is "profitable" is relative. It depends on tie availability of bombs. Two ,'ears ago atomic bombs were still critically few. Today production of bombs, of varied type, has been vastly stepped up with Increased liscoveries of raw material and im- iroved refining and production methods. Eisenhower, In his address be- ore the United Nations Assembly ist month, commented .that .the development of atomic weapons been such that they "have virtually achieved conventional status within our armed services." That appeared to refer to the ustification for their use as well to their numbers and types. 4-H (Continued from Put 1) aid Bird of Leichvlllt and Uura Alice H«mby of Yarbro. | James Bevil won the FoitM award for entomology, Low Cane also took Ark-Mo's electric food mixer prize for being frottn food* winner, while Elizabeth BrUter received the County Electric Co-op mixer for farm and home electric winner.
