Some of the complaints deal with matten that don't seem to come within JurlKilction erf the order at all, while acme ol the others may —tiler* hasn't been time to decide," said Bernard M. Shanley, Eisei&ower's special counsel. ,He added In »n interview that •bout half the protests filed so far deal with newsmen's unsuccessful efforts to have the administration s»ke public a breakdown of reasons why 8,200 workers have been separated from federal Jobs as security risks since Eisenhower took office. , , , . .The President has said his information order was designed to assure the public a freer flow of news about the government with- out Jeopardizing national security He designated Shanley to receiv complaints from newspapers an other news media about operatic of the order.

Need World Markets "We are following a Jarm plan, planting treated seed, following insect control recbmendatlons and are mechanizing ai last a: it is possible to do. "We feel that we need help In stabilizing prices in order that we may adequately balance our farm operation from year to year. "We also know that we can not continue to produce cotton just for domestic consumption. Something must be done to cultivate world market*. "We would ask this committee to devise some means of Increasing cotton exports," he stated. In closing, he lauded the committee's avowed bipartisan approach to farm problems. Senate-House conferees are to huddle and resolve differences in the two proposals within a few weeks. The XOUM bill would increase terete* to It million and would divide the Increase on an historical basil. hairs on that," he said. "If ther is anything I can do to help th press on that matter, I'm willin to try." The "big trouble," he added, 1 that it is "almost impossible provide a breakdown by specif! reasons as to why we decided thi 2,200 were security risks am shouldn't work for the govern ment." Citing an individual case, he said he had an FBI report on one fed eral worker as a user of nar cotics, a companion of known Com munists and "a crook." "On all counts he is a securit: risk, but what category would you put him in if you were malting any breakdown of reasons for sep aration?" Eisenhower himself indicated ai his news conference Wednesday the Civil Service Commission has not had time to classify the security risks more specifically. He said some of- the 2,200 probably resigned without knowing they were under Investigation. Rejected Only One Shanley said that so far he has flatly rejected only one protesl against the new information order, and that he probably will throw out another. The one rejection, he said, was the case of a newspaper protesting it was refused information on the amount of a former congressman's pension. "In the first place, I don't believe the matter comes under the order," Shanley said. "In the second place, the formula under which such pensions are computed is public information. And thirdly, I think individuals are entitled to keep such information private if they want to. It's sort of like the privacy , covering a person's Income tax returns." The complaint likely to be rejected, Shanley said, is one from another newspaper that its reporter (and all others) were barred from a meeting of the Small Business Administration conducted. He said he feels the Eisenhower order was not intended to deal with matters of that kind.

It was pointed out that some ifferentatlon would have to be ade in charges in one area on ie east outskirts since part of this ction has sewers and part does ot.

BLYTHEVTLLE COURIER NEWS Black and Veatch proposal. Several changes were made in locations of lines and a disposal plant location on the old Pemfscot Bayou due west of the city about half a mile was recommended. The Black and Ve"h plan called for the plant to be located north of this site, be- iv.^.-u Pemiscot and Lumeratc Bayous. While the Black and Veatch system was planned to provide capacity for a city of 30,000, Mr. Mehl- burger's plan involves, he said, "more than enough capacity for the present city plus reasonable growth." He described this capacity in terms of two million gallons a day: flow through the treatment plant, j The city's present water consump- | tlon, he said, was about one mil-! liin gallons a day. ! The backbone system will include six lift pumps to force sewage through the trunk lines to the west edge of the city. Prom here gravity flow will carry it to the treatment plant. Would Use Existing Mains Trunk lines will range in diameter from 12 to 24 inches in the city and to 30 inches for the gravity lines to the disposal plant. The laterals which collect sewage from the house service lines and take it to the trunk mains will be eight inches in diameter. Mist of the existing sewer mains will be retained in the new system, with relief mains added to alleviate the present overload. One of the changes from the Black and Veatch plan—and apparently one of the economies—involves using vitrified clay pipe except in one irea which will require asbestos pine with longer and fewer Joints due to water-sand condition of the soil. The Black and Veach plan called for all steel lines. The two-million gallon capacity of the treatment plant compares to 1.5 millions called for in the Black incl Veach plan. Mr. Mehlburgcr wid the larger plant would be more economical In the long run, considering the city's ultimate needs. More Truckers Fined in Traffic Cases Here Six cases of traffic violations were brought before Municipal Court yesterday afternoon in which one was fined, five forfeited bonds and one case was continued. Chicago and Southern forfeited a $75 bond on a charge of having no cab card, while the case against Richardson Transportation Company on similar charges was continued until Jan. 23 with bond set at C. R. Wood forefited a bond of $19 on a charge of speeding, while E. M. McCormick was fined $100 and cost on a charge of having no permit. The charge of operating on an improper lease was dismissed. without a permit and Harris Syrup ccrinany forfeited a like bond on a charge of operating with an improper lease.

Kean said the American Medical Assn. would fight expansion of coverage to include doctors, and a proposal to give permanently or totally disabled persons full benefits based on their period of work, not counting the period when they would be forced out of covered employment. But he said he thought these sections would be approved. Democrats on the Ways and praised the program and noted that it included several features proposed by former President Truman but rejected by Congress. and edged into Idaho and North and South Dakota. It was expected to hit Colorado tonight or early Saturday. Blizzard conditions closed schools in Northwestern Montana. One commercial airline bypassed Helena yesterday because of limited visibility. Buses from the west were running nearly three hours late. Police discouraged any kind of auto travel because of slick highways. TRUCE (CoaNniMd from P*i* » cording to Red newsmen, told Mar. tin "our side considers that the dispute between the two sides In the past meetings should not be an impediment to resumption el discussions." Martin replied, "Let us be real. istic. How can we expect a respectable, constructive atmosphere in resumed talks if the talks ttart where htey left off when completely extraneous, irrelevant and un- aceptable matter was suddenly introduced by your Bide into the record. "There is an obvious. sequence and relationship between the record of the talks and the resumption of the talks." Martin said, "We can get to the political talks only if we succee*. i in eliminating obstructive matters" We cannot ignore that under any circumstances. We hope you win understand that clearly." The American delegate said the Communist remarks paralleled those of the last two weeks of Dean's preliminary discussions with the Reds at Panmunjom. But he said the Communists did not revive the perfidy charge. There are more than 20,000,000 cyclist in the United States.
