BLYTHEVILLE COURIER NEWS THE DOMINANT NEWSPAPER OF NORTHEAST ARKANSAS AND SOUTHEAST MISSOURI VOL.

(AP)—The crushing weight .of a Republican-Dixie steamroller left a new debate-gag rule [stamped on the Senate's books today—despite furious ob- ections by Truman Democrats that it svould block action on civil rights. After voting 63 to 23 last night to pdopt the compromise rule—Intend- fd to stop most future filibusters— •he Senate put aside for the time Toeing the whole question of President Truman's civil rights program. Irhat program was at the core of Ithe long rules-change light. Republicans said tlie new bill would per- |nlt action on civil rights. Ahead was an imposing array of (vital administration legislation deal- ling with rent controls, the European Recovery Program, reciprocal ,rade agreements and housing. All are ready for Senate action, with' rent controls tabbed for debate Monday after a routine busi- [jcss session today. Rule Called Ineffective Behind Ihe Senate was bitter bat- Itle of 16 working days that ended >hortly before midnight last night when the OOP-Southern Democrat Jcoalition forced adoption of a de- Ibate-limiting rule assailed as ineffective by Democratic leaders. Thirty-four Republicans joined a-ith 29 Democrats—all but ten of hem from Dixie—to'approve a rule under which the "yes" votes of 64 Senators can g»g debate any time xcept on a future rules change. Fifteen Democrats and eight Re- Ipublicans opposed the new rule to |the last. Its • adoption means that two- Ithlrds of all the Senate's 9G elected Imembers will have to be in the Ichamber and vote for a gag before |lt can become effective.

UP)— ^resident Truman expressed hope oday of ultimate enactment of the ajor part of his program despite >positton from rebellious Southern emocrats and others. The chief executive, In a news onference, said he is trying to ass his legislation through a three- arty Congress, made up of Dem- crats, Republicans and Dlxiecrats. And he said the latter are not good Democrats. Mr. Truman said he has as yet iade no plans to stump the coun- ry to build up fire under opponents of his proposals. He had nothing to acid, he said, o his Jefferson-Jackson Day dln- ler threat to take a train swing around the country. Mr. Thuman said the North At- anttc pact has his entire approval—he had read the entire text —and that he has approved the speech on it that Secretary of State Acheson Is making tonight. While he declared that of course Dixiecrats are not good Democrats Mr. Truman talked patiently and kindly ol the rebellious Congress which has dealt him a series of Nearer Reality For E. Arkansas Osceolo Mayor, Head Of Gas Consumers Group, is Optimistic Natural gas for cities and towns in East Arkansas is definitely in the picture for perhaps as early as 1951 and some sections nmy get it sooner, Mayor Ben P. Butler of Osceola, president of the East Arkansas Natural Gas Consumers Association, declared today. He disclosed that efforts of the association to get natural gas for apporxhnately 25 municipalities, which are members of the nonprofit association, were discussed earlier this week In a directors' meeting held In West Memphis and said that the reports were encouraging. "We do not know where we will get the fuel," Mayor Butler said, Here's Where Atlantic Defense Pact Will Operate setbacks.

Tlie collections were expected to | reach 54.000 by this afternoon. W. p. Pyror, chairman for solic- I itation in Blytheville, said today that the campaign here was moving I slowly and that workers were being urged to complete solicitation since the campaign is scheduled to be closed in two weeks, and that less than one third of the chapter's quota has been met. Blylheville is scheduled to raise S8.H3 of the 513,743 quota for the chapter. members of Congress will function all right. After all, he said, it is a Congress, which has been in sesslo little more than a month since or ganizfttioh- Tyftsr^u&iipleteci. He said he thought we ought to give Congress 1 a chance to act. Mr. Trurriari said he will review the legislative situation with Democrat leaders at the White House Monday,and call in his cabinet for a talk Monday afternoon. The leaders are Vice President Barkley, Senate Majority Leader Lucas. Speaker Rayburn and House Majority Leader McCormack. Mr. Truman, apparently In no mood to start a long distance fight with Congress, said he could only advise the legislators. He would not comment on the apparent defeat of his civil rights program, the House "local option" rent control bill or the tabling of his nomination of former Gov. Man C. Wallgren of Washington as chairman of the National Security Resources Board. •but we do know that some distributors now are interested In providing a supply for this area and we feel that we are in ?. favorable position to get action before long." Mayor Butler said that plans of the Arkansas Power & Light Company call for completion of a $15,000,000 power plant near Forrest City in 1950 and that natural gas will be used as fuel to generate electricity. Move Launched In 1946 He suggested, however, that the uel supply for Mississippi County may be from the north and have direct relation to the construction ear Campbell, Mo., for the Arkan- as-Mlssouri Power Company of a 6.000,000 power plant to serve this rea. The Campbell plant proposes o use natural gas as its main fuel with standby facilities for using oal. Mayor Butler was enthusiastic over the outlook for natural gas in his area. "There has been a definite need for this type of fuel for domestic and industrial use, but it seems that those who operate the pipelines have been overlooking this area." The East Arkansas Natural Gas Consumers Association was organized in Forrest City in 1916 and since that time 27 cities and towns have granted gas distribution franchises to the non-profit association which can place them with a distributor who is in the best position' to serve'the area. ,,.''

"But 1 don't think there will any reprisals." Cooley said. "And 1 there are reprisals I don't thin they could be justified or warrantci in any way."

Modest Investment by Students in Agri Class Begins to Pay Dividends and Create Interest in Profitable Live-at-Home Farm Program By A. A. Frcdrlckson (Courier News Staff Writer) Pigs U pigs, a sage philosopher once concluded, but a veterans farm training class in Luxora has revised that equation to read: pigs equals more pigs. The vets In Ray Olive's vocational agriculture class at Luxora have gone into the registered O1C hog business in a big way and parlayed a tive-dollar-each ante into some $1,000 worth of ham on the hoof. Yesterday afternoon the second round of an expanding plan to give a regisU-red hog to every member of the class got under way as 'dividends' from the original Investment were distributed. These dividends Included five elglt-week-old pigs from the orij inal five hogs purchased by the cla-ss. A bred gilt and a weaning pig purchased from funds invested by men who Joined the class later also were passed on to other veteran-students yesterday. Here's how the plan works: About a year ago, the veterans under the supervision of Mr.'Olive decided to go into th* bog buu less. Each man donated $5 and five registered QIC pigs were purchased at a total cost of $110. A drawlnz was held and Raymond Smith. Gus Morris, Hoover Call, R. B, Crafton and James Rogers received the pigs. Original Investment Grows One of the pigs died from an un- cnown cause but the others developed Into good brood sows. Three ol these now have pigs and the fourth will bear a litter in the near future. The men who received the original five pigs were pledged to give two gilt pigs back to the group when the animals became eight weeks old. These men, however, retain ownership of the original five pigs. Offspring of these original five pig.s were among those awarded yesterday. In February, several other men jobied the class and they, too- wanted to get Into the hog bus! ness. The money they Invested was used to purchase the bred gilt anc weaning pig. Total cost to date has been $18! and the hogs are now wortli $1,005 At the drawing yetteiday, Charlie Wigton received the bred gilt and, | inder the plan, he will return to he group this animal's entire liter. These and the liters of the >lhcr pigs distributed yesterday, as well as another five pigs from fu- ure litters of the original five, will n turn be distributed to other members of the cln.ss. And so It goes, until each member of the class is In the registered hog business.! Winners of the clght-week-o)d pigs yesterday were Ezra Snofe, iharles E. Mllloway, Robert p. BrcsViears, Walker E. Faulkcnbctit and Paul Gay. Turrell D.

It Is hoped that through this program more hog breeders will b« developed MisiUs; County, In citing what can and ' iccds to be done In Mississippi Coutily. Mr. Olive cited the nntlon- ally-inown Castlio Brothers duroc farms near Luxora. Other veterans agricultural training classes at Luxora also arc In Ihe hog business and ore Injecting •aricty into the procedure. Some are working with Hampshlres. some with Pnland Chinas and others wll'n Durocs. These classes, directed by J. S. Olive. James Pcrmenler, Hay B. Whitmnre. Auten Chilwood and Bennic Rosemaiv all are strcssttig reglslcrcd pigs »»d are planning spring and fall hog shows and sales. With all the veterans' classes t«k- !n part In lliese shows and sales, a bmer should be able lo find any breed, sex or age he desires, Mr. Olive said. Learn by "l>oln(t" In connection with their hog project, animals are bought, sold and 'swapped" with I.uxora High School boys In the school's vocational agriculture classes. A. B. Bradley Is instructor of the school's agri classes and is supervisor of Ui» veteran* ,ra'nttig program. These vels are dealing exclusively with registered animals. Mr. Olive Jointed out that the registered animals bring twice the price of those that aren't. Mr. Olive Is modest In giving credit for success of the hog project nnd said yesterday that this success was due to the work of the cla,ss members. He also credited T. D. Wilkins, superintendent of Luxora schools, under whose administration the veterans program ts operated. Mr. Olive said Mr. Wllklns was responsible for construction of a new building for the vets' classes and has placed the entire school plant at their disposal. Lnxora boasts the largest farm training program for veterans In Mississippi County. At present there are 144 white and 24 Negro trainees. The white trainees are divided into six classes. Another class is to be organized In April. The farm training nrojrram got its start In 1046. Live at Home 1'lan Stressed The classes meet four hours each week, with some of the class period devoted to "learning by doing" farn shopwork—welding, blacksmlthln and other related jobs a forme must have a bent for in this of mechanical agriculture.

Each spring drive Is made to have all the vet cran-studcnts plan and plant home garden., The Luxora Hlg School has a canning plant aval able during the canning season an It Is used by these veterans as we ns other members of the commua ty. Mr. Olive pretty well summed all up when he explained that th purpose of this training Is "to belle establish the veterans In farmin so that at the end of their train Ing period they will be able to mak a better living by better tannin mcUtodj." all of them. 12 Nations Mar Sign Fact The "parties" referred to In the net aro the nations signing It. hesc will definitely Include th« nlted States, Canada, Norway, See ATLANTIC PACT on Page 13 Two Small Girls uffer Injuries in Traffic Accident Two grade school children, June .Vcbb, 8 and Shelby Ann Bailey, 7, re In Walk Hospital today suffer- ng from Injuries received yesterday nfternoon when they were struck by * car at the 'intersection of Howard and Rose Streets.
