BLYTHEVILLE COURIER NEWS THE DOMINANT NEWSPAPER OP NORTHEAST ARKANSAS AND •OBTWEABT MISSOURI VOL. XLIX-NO. 256 Blythevffle Courier Blytheville Daily New» Mississippi Valley Leader Blytheville Herald BLYTHEVILLE, ARKANSAS, WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 20, 1954 FOURTEEN PAGES SINGLE COPY FIVE CENTS North-South Demo Party Unity Seen } Florida Solon Sees Pay-Off In November By JACK BELL WASHINGTON (AP) — Sen Holland (D-FIa) said today there are signs of a new uni between Southern Democrats and national party leaders which should pay off in the November elections involving control of Congress. Holland, who led a group of Southern senators in boycotting a midsummer party rally at Chicago last year, said he is joining fully in preparations for a party meeting scheduled at Miami Beach, Fla., March 6. Sen. Smathers (D-Fla) said in a statement former Gov. Adlai E. Stevenson of Illinois, the 1952 Democratic presidential nominee, is expected to be the main speaker. Party members from Southeastern states will attend. Holland said in an interview he believes conditions have changed materially since he said he would not attend the 1953 Chicago rally because hd didn't believe it would jenefit the South. Seen Be'.Ier Attitude "I think the attitude of the national party leadership is decidedly more considerate to the South now than it was at that time," Holland declared. "I feel the signs are encouraging for better cooperation within the party than they have been in months." Stevenson lost four Southern states to Eisenhower In the 1952 elections. He had taken a Btand in favor of civil rights legislation. In this connection, Holland said he was pleased by Stevenson's statements on a visit to Atlanta late last year. "He said at Atlanta that the South had made more significant progress in the field of solving civil rights problems than had any other part of the nation," Holland said. "That is different talk from some that we heard In 1952. "I think that with give and take a satisfactory program, can be •worked out this issue. We Southerners can't expect to have our views followed 100 per- cent but we're getting tired of the other side's insistence on having their views adopted 100 per cent. Feels Efforts Made "We ought to be willing to meet halfway any sincere efforts at. reconciliation, and I feel that those efforts are being made." Holland noted, too. that the Chicago meeting: had virtually buried the "loyalty oath" to which Southerners had objected strenuously. The oath pledged 1852 convention delegates to try to get convention nominees on their state ballots under the Democratic label. Holland said evident dropping of this, with other actions, "ought to give us new unity for the congressional elections this fall." Invitations to speak at the dinner, signed by all Democratic members of the Florida congressional delegation, have been sent to Stevenson, Sen, Russell (D- Ga) and Rep. Rayburn of Texas, the House minority leader.

Missing Seven Hours He was not located until the four hunters found the body around 10 a. m., Mr. Holt said. They reported it to the Osceola sheriff's office and Deputy Dave Young '.vent to investigate. The Blytheville sheriff's office and the county coroner were notified and because of the condition of the land and the location it was necessary to use a iarm tractor to reach the scene. No Verdict Several facts about the case have not been verified and fully investigated, Mr. Holt said, and a verdict has not been reached. There are some indications that there could have been foul play involved, he said. The sheriff's office is still investigating the case and no new in- ifprrmtlon has Hiiiie, Shen said this morning. Odd Fuels Pointing out the fact that there were no abrasions on the neck and the clothes were unusually clean, Mr. Holt said, it did not seem possible that a man could climb a tree and jump without dirtying his clothes and bruising his neck.

The family reported him in high spirits Monday night and know of no reason for him having committed suicide, Mr. Holt said. The body was taken to Swift's Funeral Home but funeral arrangements are incomplete pending the location of relatives.

(NEA Photo) By DOUGLAS LARSEN NBA Staff Correspondent GROTON, Conn. — (NEA) — Mamie Eisenhower will be the star tomorrow of an even which history might record as more significant than any ceremony her husband ever pe formed. She Is going to smash a bottle of ,ood domestic champagne against the nose of the first atomic powered submarine, the USS Nautilus, and send it grinding into the. cold waters ol the Thames River in Connecticut. At this moment she renders practically every lighting ship on the worlds' seas obsolete. She effects a •ital step in the long-range modern- zation of America's defenses around nuclear explosives and atomic power. Probably more Important, because -his is the first use of atomic energy or ship propulsion, the First Lady's aunching formally opens the door vast civilian uses of this tremendous new source ol power. If you accept the fact that nu- lear fission produces great heat, it's asy to understand the revolutionary lower the Nautilus.

S. in both world wars. With it, the submarine becomes practically a new weapon. M'e atomic sub can travel around the world far' below the surface! Submerged it travels about 30 miles per hour, and faster in emergencies. It can catch up with just about any warship or commercial vessel afloat, launch torpedoes and escape. It can dive deep enough and move fast enough to get away from known anti-submarine weapons. LANDLOCKED ATOM SUB UNDERWAY — The first atomic submarine engine, built into a land based submarine hull, was generating power when this overhead view.was made at the National Reactor Testing Station in Idaho. The engine section is immersed in a sea tank about 50 feet in diameter and almost 40 feet high to simulate p.ctual operating conditions. The nuclear power plane, designed and built by Westlnghouse Electric Corporation, is a prototype of the engine in the USS Nautilus, first atom submarine scheduled to be launched tomorrow at Groton, Conn. (AI* H'ircphoto) It's the best weapon yet created to combat, the Russian sub fleet. The only weapon It Is , vulnerable to is another atomic sub. The nuclear-powered submarine Is known to be an excellent platform for the launching of guided missiles off enemy coastlines. It can land assault troops on enemy shores, act Missco Men Are Inducted Five More to Take Physicals Feb. 9 Twenty-four men from Mississippi county left yesterday for induction Into the Armed Forces, according to Rosie M.

George (D-Ga) urged Republicans today to take to a Senate vote their differences over a proposed constitutional amendment on treaty powers. But Sen. Knowland of California, the GOP leader, said he hasn't given up hope of a compromise, George, .taking a leading role for the Democrats In the treaty controversy, said he regards as 'a fair proposition" an offer by Sen. Bricker (R-Ohlo 1 ) to submit to a rollcall test a section of a proposed constltulonal amendment crlt- icl?.ed by President Eisenhower. Elsenhower said he would never agree to giving the stales power to nullify within their own borders the operations of treaties. Bricker has said that what he Is trying to do Is to make sure that treaties don't take away the rights of the states to establish the qualifications of voters and to exercise other powers reserved to them In the Constitution. Lawyers disagree as to whether this is a real danger. George said the quick" anrt simple way to end the argument Is to put It up to. the Senntc. "I don't see why the Republican leaders should object to settling this Issue In the Senate," the Georgia senator said In an interview, "A good many senators who favor adoption of a constitutional amendmentdon't want to vote for this clause because they believe it goes too far. "I think I might vote to eliminate It. although I don't consider it as significant nor as harmful as some others seem to think It is." George predicted that on a test, a majority of the Senate would vote to strip out the disputed clause and thus make the proposed treaty power amendment more pn- latable to Elsenhower. Democratic votes are likely to decide the question.

Vivian D. Corbly of Cincinnati said in a statement prepared for a House Veterans Committee'hear- In" that the New York State group "vllllfied" Ihc DAV and its service foundation as a "charity racket." Corbly said DAV asked for the congressional hearing because he contended the New York group did not give it a "decent opportunity refute the misinformation which was presented . . to the public as so-called facts." The New York legislative committee heard testimony that the DAV used none of 21 million dol- ars it collected from miniature auto tag soles as payments to needy veterans. Corbly said the organization did not claim to make such payments, said testimony given to the New York committee by its own coun- George Kerner, shows its "utter ignorance of the basic principles of rehabilitation." "Disabled veterans don't want landouts," he asserted. "They need and want only the benefits to vhich they are rightfully entitled under the law, which the DAV pends its money to help them •btain."

Dulles Preparing For Talks on U.S. Atom-Pool Plan How to Discuss Proposal Is I fern To Be Threshed Our By WARREN ROGERS JR WASHINGTON Ml - Secretary of State Dulles was preparing today to thresh out with Soviet Foreign Minister Molotov how to talk over the U. S. proposal to pool atomic energy resurces for peaceful purposes. Dulles met a second time yesterday with Russian Ambassador jeorgi N.- Zarubin. Afterward, the State Department announced the next talks would be'between Dulles and Molotov at Berlin. It clear that Dulles, who lies to Berlin tomorrow, was press- Ing for early agreement on when low and where full-scale atoms- for-peace talks can be held. His two meetings with Zarubin, on Jan. 11 and yesterday, appeared .o be the curtain raiser to more precise conversation with Molotov. Private Talks Suggested President Eisenhower suggested he talks- In a United Nations ad-r dress Dec. 8.'He sold they should be private and should, be aimed at creating an agency which, under U. N. auspices, Would handle atomic materials and knowledga or peaceful uses, .such as in medicine and electric power generation. Russia, the United States, Britain and other atomic powers would ;ontribute to this pool. The goal back of the plan Is to eek, through this indirect ap- aroach, a solution to the dead- ocked atomic armaments dispute. Russia, In agreeing to the dscus- ions, suggested a better way would >e for nations with atomic weapons o sign a compact outlawing their use. Dulles repealed yesterday that his angle can be explored. He told is news conference it was not out- ide the scope of his expected pro- edural talks with Molotov et Berlin. Dulles said yesterday he does not xpect to get into the substance Ilsenhower's proposal. He said hat would take a lot of technical xperts and he was not taking any uch staff to Berlin.
