Negro Deaths TAX Greater Interest In Schools by Taxpayers Urged Three prime areas of Interest in public schools are segregation, tl nance and curriculum, the Rev Eugene Hall, pastor of Dell's Methodist Church, told members of BIytheville's Rotary Club yesterday. While not offering pat solutions for each, the Rev. Mr. Hall said, "I merely invite your attention to them, because as taxpayers, you should be .vitally interested." The school systems of this slate. he said, are facing an overhauling should segregation be killed by a Supreme Court decision due in early spring. "It Is my belief," he said In turning to the second ol what he termed "areas of concern " that nowhere do we get as much for our tax dollar as in the schools "I think it would be a good idea to conduct classes for the taxpayer to show him Just where his school tax dollar goes." Turning to the curriculum the Rev. Mr. Hall said no school program Is complete unless its teachers attempt to instill "not doctrine. but sound spiritual values, which will give each student a proper mental attitude." Mr. Hall was introduced by R tarian R. J. Nichols. Received as new members the club yesterday were H Knappenberger and V. B. Warr.

(Continued from Page 1) of 630 millions. McCormack added his "present Inclination" is not to vote to extend present rates on corporations and excises. Eisenhower urged Congress to cancel three billion dollars In cuts in these fields, now set automatically for April 1, and to prevent losses in revenue from Other excises not involved in the April 1 changes. Reduction Predicted Rep. Kean (R-NJ), fourth-ranking Ways and Means Committee Republican and usually an administration supporter, predicted there would be "at least slight reductions In corporation income taxes and considerable reductions in some of the higher excises." Rep. Jenkins (R-ohio), second- ranking GOP committee member, said In a separate Interview, "I think we'll cut corporation taxes some and I think we'll cut excises." The corporate Income tax rate, now 52 per cent, is due to drop lo 47 per cent on April 1 unless Congress changes the law. Sen. George (D-Gal, senior Democrat on the Senate Finance Com- miltee, and others have suggested a 50 per cent rate, which would reduce revenue by almost a billion dollars annually. McCormack- said he approved o a move by all 10 Democrats 01 the tax-writing Ways nnd Mcnn: Committee to write into the re vision program nn Increase of S10I in personal income \ tnx cxcmp tions for each taxpayer nnd eacl dependent. All 15 committee Republicans voted against this proposal yester day, stopping it for the time be ing. But McCormack nnd Rep Boggs (D-La), sponsor of the move, said they expected the figh to be renewed on the House floor. Liberal Plan Approved McCormack, nsked nbout the federal deficit if nil the tnx cuts he suggested take effect, replied: "There is n huge deficit anyway. Eisenhower's budget outlined deficit of almost three billion dollars for the fiscal year beginning July 1. Secretary of the Treasury Humphrey, predicting that corporate and excise rntes would be extended, said the scheduled cuts would increase the deficit to $5,300,000,000. The Ways and Means Committee, taking up the tax revision program sectlon-by-scction, yesterday Dorothy Faye Bowers Services for Dorothy Faye Bowers, 16, daughter of Lurcennie Jenkins of Blytheville and Frank Bowers of Chicngo. who died Tuesday at her home east of Blytheville, will be conducted nt 11 a.m. Saturday at St. Baptist Church in RIpley by Rev.

This would apply children In school or college, long as the taxpayer provided ;alf their support. Present law does not permit n dependency al- ownnce for anyone making more linn {BOO a year. (Continued from Page D and indeed all Europe be unifiec for peace? Or will divisions be im posed which will make Europi again the breeder of war?" The most optimistic statemen came from West German Chancel lor Konrad Adenauer, sitting the conference sidelines. He told the foreign affairs committee o the Bonn Parliament that there existed a real chance for the unv fication of East and West Germany in the Berlin talks. About Face This was an aoout face from the previous view in the West German capital, where most German officials have felt that nobody really wanted the parley and it was therefore doomed to failure. The French foreign minister, making his ifrst visit to Berlin, said: "On our trip through Germany we have seen the traces of the last war still clearly visible everywhere. They should be a warning anrt n lesson for the foreign ministers' who will meet in Berlin. We have come so that such a tragedy will not be repeated." Eden praised Berlin for the part the city has played since the war and said: "It symbolizes not only the problem of a divided Germany but also the spirit of freedom and courage which should inspire a reunited Germany." (Continued from Ptr* 11 going to pull that figure down to $3,300,000,00 In the next g£ months." Estimate OpUmliflo "High corporation profits In 1963 are a major factor In reducing the size of the prospective deficit," Douglas said In an Interview. 'Nevertheless, this estimate is much too optimistic. It Is simply ncredible that they can cut the leflclt down by e'/i-biillon dollars n less than six months." Douglas, a former economics irofessor, also took issue with El- enhower's statement that esti- nates of receipts for the next fi* al year "are based upon the con- muation of business conditions, ersonal income and corporation rofits at substantially the present igh levels." Douglas said the budget contains ), hint of any administration rogram should the forecast prove •rong. "If there should be a serious rop in business conditions," he aid, "not only will that increase he deficit at existing rates of tax- tion but it will raise the further uestion as to whether we should not give a stimulus to employment by increasing the personal exemption for income tax purposes and by some positive program of public works." Newly-Organized Gosnell 4-H Club Elects Officers A 4-H Club was organized Oosnell yesterday. Officers for th boys' and girls' divisions wer elected at organizational meetings Boys' division officers elected were Donald West, president Dempsey Barnes, vice president. Sammy Gordon, secretary; Wes ley Davis, reporter; and Charles Mullin, song leader. Harold A. Davis is faculty advisor. Betty Ruth Stigall was elected girls' division president. Other of ficials are Paye Caldwell, vice president; Audrey Gordon, secretary; Christine Stark, treasurer; Doris Adams, reporter; and Dorothy Carter, Deannie Roberts and Linda Cox, song leaders. Faculty advisor is Mrs. w. S. Mick. POWs Revision Plan Endorsed Republicans generally Went along with the President's endorsement of a tax revision plan to remove alleged Inequities at an eventual cost of about two billion dollars In revenue. Some- democrats claimed the plan favored corporations and big stockholders, and talked about broadening the reduction to include all taxpayers. Word was that the administration would delay pressing the President's renewed request that he legal limit on the debt be boosted from the present 275 bil- "ions. The house last year voted ,o hike the ceiling 290 billions^ but he Senate failed to act. There is still strong opposition there. The budget also drew fire from :ome Senators for its sharp trim- •ning of proposed federal grants or hospital construction, munici- ial airports, low-rent public hous- rcg and maritime subsidy pro- rams. Eisenhower recommended that 0 million dollars be appropriated or grants to the states for hos- ital building in fiscal 1955. This s 15 million less than the current ear and 100 million less than the laximum authorized. Sen. Hill (D-Ala), co-author of he act which set up the hospital id program^ termed the new re- uest "disappointing and inade- uate." Senators Ellender (D-La) and cCarran (D-Nev) said they would (Continued from Page 1) oners, but It was rejected. Instead, the Reds warned Indian Lt. Oen. K. S. Thimayya it would consider the Indians responsible for seeing that there is no "abduction and dispersion" of the pro-Reds. The Indian commander when met with leaders of the pro-Red compound, ,U. S. Sgt. Richard G. Corden of East Providence. R. I., British Marine Andrew Condron and three leaders of the South Korean POWs. "He gave them his position," an Indian spokesman said, "namely, that by midnight we shall withdraw our guards, withdraw our custody and shall have nothing to do with them." The prisoners probably would have little trouble leaving the unguarded compound, however, since t is surrounded by only two strands of wire. The Reds also bitterly accused he Indian command of "completely" wrecking the truce terms and warned them they must be responsible for seeing that there is "abduction and dispersions" of the pro-Communist POWs. While the Reds were protesting. Gen. John E. Hull, U. N. Par East commander, wrote Thimayya praising the "humane, efficient and expeditious manner in which anti-Communist Korean and Chinese personnel were transferred." DEFENSE (Continued from Pit* » offset by plan: for cutbacks In manpower and spending of tti Army and Navy. As a result, rec ommended outlays were held tc about 37'/ z billions compared with about 41'/ 2 estimated for the cur rent fiscal year, which ends June 30. Douglas, t World War n Ma rine, said It "seems unwise to cm our ground forces this much." The budget indicated that the Army would drop three of Its iresent 20 divisions and some 33,000 men and the Marine Corps would lose about 35,000 of its present 250,000 force. 'We need ground troops to take care of local actions like Korea,' Douglas said. Republican congressional leaders all voiced praise. Chairman Saltonstall (R-Mass) it the Senate Armed Services Committee said the new budget would give the armed services "all the noney they can efficiently use." Senate Majority Leader KnoW' and (K-Ca]if) and Chairman Bridges (R-NH) of the Senate ropriations Committee agreed 'ith Eisenhower that "our securl- y Is being weakened." ; strengthened — not seek to get some money voted this year for municipal airport building. The President's budget also failed to include any Junds for construction subsidies on new ships. Sen. Potter (B-Mich) said the government must give some aid to shipbuilders this year to prevent a collapse of the industry. Malaria Resists Drug KUALA LUMPUR, Malaya (IP)— Malaria control experts are worried bout the increasing resistance of erms to the new drug, paludrine. In its report, the Malaria Advis- ry Board said resistance was first detected about the end of 1948 when a large number of cases failed to respond to treatment. By 1950 many cases failed to respond and by 1951 resistance was reported all over Malaya. Swift Spends $2,768,460 Here During Post Year Swift tnd Company's Blythevill* plant dropped some $2.768,450 Into Blytheville's tUl during 1953. That's what' the company paid for cottonseed, soybeans, labor, operating equipment and supplies la doing business in Blytheville for the 12-month period, J. Ed Dicks, local manager, revealed today In regard to 1954, Mr. Dlcki said he looks for a "fair to good" demand for cottonseed and soybean by-product feed for this year.
