Reds Progress In Cold War Doubts Fighting Will Be Instigated By The Kremlin · Omaha-m-Sen. Fulbright (D- Ark) says he believes Russia will ·avoid a shooting war because the Kremlin has enjoyed such success in the current battle of propaganda arid subversion. The senator said last niirht in the first of two · University of Omaha Baxter Memorial lectures that while the United States is preparing for a full-scale war which may not come, "we are neglecting ^ and losing the cold war which is already upon us." "I maintain that tfie Russians must have strong and abiding faith in the efficacy of conspiracy. ' sabotage and 'corruption and are ] unlikely to abandon them in favor ' of a dangerous and risky adventure involving atomic bombs," he declared. He said Russia knows of ou lack of decision on foreign policj and will cause us to spend larg sums of'money and ruin our econ . omy by inflation, rather than chal lenging us in full, scale, hot war : "Throughout the ' rearmamen period," he said, "we must strive to'keep government expenditures within government income." Senator Fulbright recommended an adjustment of the military demand so a more ' adequate amount of money ant 1 effort could be allocated to the cold war defense. Seeds To Plant .

Connally, in a Senate speech Monday opposing immediate consideration of the Hawaii statehood bill, said he was a better American than many . persons i"ng in Hawaii. Many of the people living there, he added, 'are not of American descent." Hawaii bristled, fired a bar- age of protests and poured dimes nd dollars into a fund to send delegation to Texas and Wash- nglon. Adding fuel to the fire was the act that during World War II Hawaii's 442nrt regiment rescued trapped elements of Texas' own 36th division in Italy. The 442nd sustained more casualties in the rescue than the number of trap ped Texans, and came out of th war the most decorated outfit. The Delegation' plans a 'stop over in Dallas and is due in .Washington Sunday morning.. I includes: Former Lt. Col. Janies K. Lovell, who commanded the 100th Infantry Battalion and fought in Italy and France. '. Matsu Takabuki, president of the 442nd Club who fought in Italy and France as a sergeant.' Daniel K. Meheula, a twice- wounded former lieutenant with the 96th Division in the Philippines and Okinawa. Mrs. Marion H.

L. Keith, owner of Lake Keith at Cave Springs, Realtor Terry Peel of Bentonville announced this morning..

A new bridge will 1 be built, and cottages around the 50-acre ake will be constructed. The big lotel atop the mountain across he. highway from the lake will be emodeled, stables will be conducted, and a golf course will be I nstalled. Peel said Keith plans to con struct a beautiful home rt the re sort, on ihe east side of the moun tain; that he has bought a good deal of brush-covered land which he. will clear and have for his fine cattle, and that he will graze his. best cattle along the highway Plans call for a program similar to that at Roaring River State Park in Missouri, with a series of pools below the big lake. The water will · be stocked with fish from Lake Keith, where an expansion program also is planned. Peel said plans call for a half- million dollar setup once It is completed, and that the purchase involved about. $300,000. The Borger, Texas, oil n an purchased the resort from C. A. Line- sarger, who kept the Wonderland cave and family homes. The resort is in its 31st year of operation. Little Rock-OT-Both sides have asked the Arkansas Suprem Opurt to reconsider its decision :He Southwestern Bell Telephon Company rate case. Lawyers for a group of citi rotesting that the court had a owed a too large a rale increas iled a motion for rehearing yes crday. Shortly afterward the tele phone, company filed a simila motion, seeking to eliminate or dc rease the refunds the court or ered. Yesterday was^he last da for filing such motions. The court, which seldom grant rehearings, will take the petition under submission Monday. The high court, last month au thorized an annual increase in Ar kansas rales of $3,177,000. Tha compared with some $4;600,000 an nually the company had sough and approximately $3,600,000 the Public Service Commission had allowed. Since September, 1950, subscribers have been paying rates based on the. full amount the company had sought. The difference will he refunded if the Supreme Court overrules the rehearing motion and after PSC approves a new rate schedule. Exact amount of the refund will be determined by the date of the new schedule but it may total around two million dollars. The Arkansas Gazette speculated toda.y the expected rebate will be made in cash--not in deductions from monthly bills The newspaper pointed out that the state has ordered three cash r unds by utilities in the last years. ^·^^L . ^_ "^^^^^^"BOPKsasags^aacasga^^^B-g^aTM!-- nrr--TMMi Red Negotiators Attempt To for estall China Blockade The Bulldogs Celebrate A Victory Freak Electric Storm Plays Havoc With San Jo» r Calif.; Fire Balls HH Houses 'Senate Vole Sought On McCarthy Inquiry Washington-(/r)-The S e n a t e Rules Committee voted 8 to 3 today to seek a Senate vote on whether to continue a subcommittee inquiry into demands that Senator McCarthy (R-Wis- be _ ousted from Congress.
