PAGE TWO MONDAY, JANUARY 8, 19B5 Arkansas in Washington Fidbright Sougkt Union For Europe Back in 1947 By GORDON BROWN WASHINGTON (AP) — Although he probably would rather have been wrong, Sen. Fulbright (D-Ark) proved to be a good prophet on affairs in Europe. It was back in 1947 and 1948 that Fulbright pleaded with the Truman administration and the Senate to insist that European countries set up some kind of frame work looking to political unity — some United States of Europe. BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS It was back in 1941 and 1948 that Fulbright pleaded with the Truman administration and the Senate to insist that European countries set up some kind of framework looking to political unity — some United States of Europe. "It's now or never," he pleaded with his colleagues. His advice went unheeded and as he views the matter today there ie no chance now of achieving any such goal. Pulbright sought several times to amend legislation setting up the Marshall Plan to require that as a condition for aid, the European countries must agree to some plan for establishing political unity. While he obtained considerable support in the Senate, he got no help from the administration. It wasn't, he said, that the administration opposed his goal, but rather the way of achieving it. "I felt that the best way to get a sick man to take some corrective steps was to get him to agree while he's still sick," he said. "Dean Acheson (then secretary of State) thought we should get the man well first." Arkansas members of Congress are watching the cotton acreage situation closely to see what can be done to help the plight of some smaller cotton growers. Many growers are unhappy with their acreage allotments for 1955 because, as Things worked out, they will be forced to take cuts of 30 per cent or more, whereas the national acreage cut was only slightly more than 10 per cent. If allocations of state and county reserves don't take care of the situation, there likely will be a strong demand for an increase in the national allotment. Whether Congress will agree to an increase, as it did a year ago, is anyone's guess. It is certain that bills will be introduced to set the total at 19 anc a half million acres, compared with ihe figure of 18,113,000 acres set by Secretary of Agriculture Ben- Rep. Oren Harris (D-Ark) is planning: to introduce legislation early in the new session which would set up some plan of federal aid to education. He said he regards the education problem as one of the gravest in the country and schools must get some help. Many districts, he said, are bonded to the hilt to provide new facilities and need more money to increase teacher wages. Rep. Bronks Hays (D-Ark) is slated to be a member or the Dem- «JVJ9 *"" ocratic House Patronage Committee. This committee of three members passes on who should get patronage jobs around the House of Representatives. He was on this committee in the 82nd Congress. There wasn't much need for it during the 83rd Congress since the Republicans held the patronage strings. Arkansas members may move up a little in House leadership matters the coming session. There is some speculation that Rep. Priest (D-Tenn) may not want to act as Democratic whip since he will be.chairman of the House Commerce Committee. Should he step out, there is some talk that Rep. Mills (D-Ark) might be called on to, take it over. Should Priest merely want an assistant, the talk goes, he might draft Rep. Harris (D-Ark) for the job. Mills, who is close to speaker Eayburn (D-Texas), said he'd take the office only if (he leadership drafted him. It is up to the whip to have Democratic members on hand for important votes. There is also a chance that an Arkansan might be put on the important House Rules Committee although that matter hasn't "jelled" Relieve Suffering Fast-Effectively with 4-H WINNERS—Winners o( the 4-H Achievement Awards, Eldon Holsappte, left, Mitchell, Ind., and Coleta Lou McAllister, Loyal, Okla., accept the trophies awarded by President Eisenhower. tbe prizes to the pair in Chicago, 111., K Secretary at AgrfcuJturc Ezra Taft Benson.
