MONDAY, JANUARY 11, 1MM BLYTUBVILLB (ARK.) COURJKK NBWf Senate Group Led By McCarthy Denies 'Book Burning' WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate investigations sub committee headed by Sen. McCarthy (R-Wis) says it wasn' "book burning" to remove "Communist books" from U. S overseas libraries. The committee wrote Into a report made public yesterday some caustic words for its critics and the comment that some of the officials of the overseas information program under the last Demo• cratlc administration showed "curious color blindness to anything Red or pink." The group, which investigated the libraries for four controversy- packed months last year, said "blantantly pro-Communist, pro- Soviet and. anti-American mated- Commodity And Stock Markets- New York Cotton (12:30 quotations) Mar 3320 May 3336 Jury 3326 Oct 3266 Open High Low Close al" was used In them.

Streibert, should be invited next month to tell the subcommittee about "his accomplishments and Improved procedures during the past six months." German Books Destroyed The report made public yesterday said "many of those who now complain of alleged 'book burning' apparently made no public protests when the United States gov ernment Itself in 1946 destroyed literally hundreds of thousands it (not millions of books in occupied I Germany." It said destruction of books deemed to be Nazi, militaristic or anti-democratic was conducted by military government authorities on such a scale in conquered Germany that it was almost impossible to re-establish German schools until 3326 3347 3335 3383 3317 3335 3326 3325 3345 3334 New Orleans Cotton Open High Low Close Mar.

Direct Payment* The government would make direct payments from the Treasury lo domestic producers in order ihat these payments, when added l» seasn, would raise the nvei age return per pound to 90 pe cent of parity. For such commodities as mea animals, dairy products, poultry and eggs, tobacco, soy beans, cot tonseed. flax, fruits and vegetables and sugar, the President proposed no changes from present pro grams. The flexible price support plan, under which price guarantees would move up or down with changes tn supplies, would be applied to wheat, cotton, rice, corn, and peanuts. In .urging flexible support* foi cotton nnd wheat, the President said the major problem is to develop a program which will help farmers gain foreign buyers. He said present high rigid supports stimulate competition by foreign producers and reduce U. S. exports. Eisenhower recommended th; a "modernized" formula for determining parity prices, as written into the 1948-49 farm act, be allowed to go into effect Jan. 1. 1056, for commodities not now under it. Those commodities are wheat. crn, cotton and The "modern' peanuts. parity price for Mrs. E. Y. Andrews Dies in Memphis Services for Mrs. Eugene Y.

Overton. ;hese products would be lower ihan prices determined by the old Tormula. Tlie President suggested, however, that the shift from the old to the new parity be carried out gradually. He sai'd this should >e done in steps of five percentage Joints of the old parity per year until the change has been accomplished. Cannot Destroy Surplus Eisenhower said that removal of he threat of price depression due o huge surpluses—which now total nearly 5 billion dollars—Is an es- ientlal part of his program. "Destruction of surplus commod- ties cannot be countenanced under any circumstances," he said. "They can be insulated from the :ommercial markets and used In lonstructive ways. "Such uses will Include school unch programs, disaster relief, aid to the people of other countries, and stock-piled reserves at home for use in war or national emergency." Eisenhower said Congress should continue present authority permitting the use of farm surpluses to help friendly foreign countries and for overseas disaster relief. He said that in an effort to broaden foreign markets, the government soon will send a series to trade missions to Europe, Asia, and South America to explore the immediate possibilities of expanding international trade in food and cotton.

Wants Thorough Study Eisenhower called on Congress to make a "thorough study" of union welfare pension funds "with a view of enacting such legislation as will project and conserve these funds for the millions of working men and women who are ;he beneficiaries." There have been numerous »ug- estions from management and Jongress members that such funds should have public supervisions, similar to insurance regulations now in effect.

It's the job of the water system to take over the task of collecting water and delivering it into your home or place of business 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, safe for human consumption. An important thing about your water bill is not the charges it recards, but the savings not mentioned. Look at your bill. Consider the items which might well appear but don't. There is no reference to medical service, yet the health of your family, is protected by the vigilance of the men who check and treat water to make seure it's safe for you. There is no fee for the reduction of fire insurance, yet the whole schedule of these rates is substantially reduced if an adequate public water supply is available. Without a dependable water supply, sewers could not be properly flushed or streets kept clean. There is no contribution levied for community development, yet key industries can produce goods and provide employment only because a dependable water supply is available. 1 Only through an organized system of collection, storage, distribution, and treatment can water resources be mobilized to produce he broader benefit^ which you as a citizen enjoy. Without a water-works system, th« cost of urban living would be prohibitive. Blytheville Water Co. "Wattr It Your C/icopest Commodity*
