TUESDAY, JANUARY 12,1954 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE THREE 2 Men Work 3 Hours Daily to Bring Solons Big 3-D Weathermap By CHARLES F. .BARRETT WASHINGTON (AP) — The government has installed new 3D maps to tell a congressman everything about the weather except how political, winds are blowing in his home town. A dedication service was scheduled today for the elaborate multicolored weather maps just off the floor of the House arid Senate. Rain, snow or shine, two Weath- i tr Bureau experts show up at 9 f^t.m. every day to fill the big glass panels with red. yellow, white and green symbols which portray the weather from Mexico to Canada. It takes them three hours, but tion, precipitation, pressure and . so on. George Winthrop, when they are through a congressman can tell the temperature in his home town—plus wind direc- atmospherio head of the Weather Bureau's daily map unit, said it was "pure coincidence" today's ceremony coincided with the worst snow and sleet storm of the season.

"You'd be surprised," Winthrop said. "Many congressmen are better meteorologists than the people who make the maps. They are keenly interested in the weather here and back home. They can make their own forecast." The weather bureau has had old glass map cases since 1902, bu they included weather stations which had been closed for 20 years. As for the three-dimensional ef. feet, that was obtained by laying out three layers of. glass, each with its own symbols. Winthrop called it "lamination" on a "delicately grained glass surface." That makes it easier for a congressman to distinguish an occluded front from a high pressure area.

Is McCarthy correct in con- lending that refusal to testify on any grounds other than the Fifth Amendment is contemptuous? Many witnesses have cited the Fifth Amendment's guarantees against compulsory self-incrimina- ,ion. McCarthy contends they have abused the privilege. McCarthy, in an announced ef- ort to eliminate at least one possible controversy over the future if his subcommittee, temporarily shelved a plan to ask for a $100,- iOO boost in the appropriation for ts work. He said he will ask the ienate for a $200,000 total, the iame as last year. •- ^orfeits Bond Josepn Lockhenst forfeited a 5 bond in Municipal Court this norniug on a charge of running a stop sign. Leftist Leader To Try Forming Italian Cabinet ROME in — Amlhtore Fanfani 46-year-old left-wing leader of the Christian Democratic party agreed today to try to form a new Italian government. He "conditionally" acceptec President Luigi Elndaudi's offer o: the premiership after former Pre mier Gulseppe Pella, who resigned Jan. 5, had turned it down. He had served as agriculturae minister under Alclde de Gasper and as interior minister In Pella's five-month-old government. In the former post, he played a major part in the implementation of the land reform program under which Italy plans to distribute more than million acres to 50,000 peasani families. Pella resigned last week after a split with other Christian Democrat leaders, who felt the Pre< mier's policies were too far to the right. Many of the party's leaders lave urged more social reforms :o counter the rising strength of ;he Communists and the extreme left Socialists allied with the Reds. FARM (Continued from Page 1; is shaping up. There were indications that wool [rowers in such states as Wyom- ng, Montana, Idaho and Colorado —where there are Senate battles his year—would be pleased with he President's proposal to make diremt Treasury payments to give hem an average return of 90 per cent of parity . Benson Lists Reasons Secretary of Agriculture Benson 5aid there are a dozen reasons vhy the existing farm price sup- lort system should be changed. In a broadcast speech. Benson said oiisumers are denied benefits, of abundant production, yet farmers .re denied a stable income. As for the new program. Benson ;aid, it promises consumers "an ;bundance of food and fiber at easonable prices and at less cost o taxpayers." The theory advanced in support if flexible price props is that it vlll help to maintain normal sup- lies by keeping supports at high evels in time of scarcity and low- ring them, thus discouraging pro- luction, when surpluses pile up. Critics counter that it thus re- luces financial help to farmers at he time they need it most—when irices are low. vJegro Deaths Allen Davis Services for Allen Davis, 75, who lied Sunday at his home on Her-' inn Street here, will be conducted t noon Wednesday at St. Luke Bap- ist Church by Rev.

Inspector Rene Belec, head of the Mounted Police's Investigation branch here, said the European, a 25-year-old native of Poland, ar rived from Europe at Dorval Airport Friday. Police visited him at a midtown hotel several hours later and found a parcel containing "thousands" of the uncut dla> monds. The New Yorker was picked up at a Montreal home Sunday.

In cases where walkout failed to get the required majority support, workers who failed to return to work could be fired. This provision of Smith's bill ap- >arcnlly surprised the secretary of abor, who told newsmen he had •end Smith's legislation earlier and md not understood that the poll was to be held after a strike began. Murray termed this "a strikebreaking weapon." He called it 'another attempt to try and show .hat union leaders don't have the bucking of the membership." Some other senators said it would strengthen democracy in unions and help guarantee rank-and-flle control.
