The pipeline was laid by Sun- nay Oil Col of Tulsa. It will carry products from Oklahoma oil fields to the three distribution points in Arkansas. It has a 40.000 barrel per day capacity. The first petroleum products coming through the line were duel to reach West Memphis sometime' today. New facilities are being constructed there to process and mar- feet the products. Handling the oil products at the end of the line will be a Sunray subsidiary, the Oklahoma Mississippi River Products Line Corp. The company has. a new $2,000,000 plant in West Memphis which will, be officially opened in the near future.

Wathburft Comedy of a Town Which Won't Put Its Money Where Its Mouth Is In his final bulletin (July) before resigning this month as secretary- '.sanager to enter private business Sly Lawrence told Mope Chamber of Commerce membership that pledges for the current year total ohly $5,700 and actual cash collected only $3,700. Continuing, the bulletin says: "You will remember that 1953 Was completed with a considerable deficit. The deficit will be still greater for 1954 if additional funds are not pledged and paid to the budget. This is the ^last bulletin for this editor. Your August Bulletin will have a new writer and we wish for him, who ever he may be, even better co-operation and greater success than this one has enjoyed." But for $3,700 you can't buy much in the way of a chamber of commerce. Ray Lawrence carried on under impossible financial conditions. The irony of it is, the chamber of commerce, presumably rep- rjfeenting. the money and active business interests of Hope, is itself perpetually without money! In a sense the problem before a chamber of commerce management is identical to the problem confronting any business operator: If his outfit is a cheap one folks are prone to say it's no good; and it it'sia really good outfit .then they say it's too expensive. But whatever it takes to do a particular job in a particular field, that much we KJJK'e to spend in time and money— if we expect our institution to continue. The original Hope Chamber of Commerce budget for 1954 was set at approximately $10.000. That's less than Camden was raising for its chamber more than 25 years ago under tho late Luther Ellison, Whom many people here knew personally. The financial formula for operat- jj^g a chamber of commerce is, at its very minimum, the following: 50% cash for office salaries and 509o for travel and promotion.

The three are a compromise foreign aid bill providing $2,781,000,000 in new cash, a bill to ban the Communist party find a bill to jroaden and liberalize Ih5 socia security system. ; There was a chance all of this could be passed and sent to Prdsi dent Eisenhower by ton'.ght. Some of the lawmakers thought tomorrow was more likely Cor 1 he windup, and a few pessimists still expected the session to run over to early next wek. taking a surprise turn at the last early next wek. The way legislation has been taking a surprise turn at'the last minute, there was just no lelliiiE. When legislative burincs IK completed, the House will be able to quit until January. But the Senate may onmc back later to dispose of the recommendations-, of its special committoe on the motion to censure Sen. McCarthy.- (R-Wis). Senate-House conferees agreed on the compromise foreign aid appropriation yesterday, and it was expected to whip through both branches . today in short order. This is the final money- bill of the session. i' However, the two other big measures remained to be i( harnmered out in conference. ; The administration is :'oppbsed to n provision writtsn into an anti- NEW YORK Wl—-The Great At- kntic & Pacific Tea Co., operator of 4.000 A&P stores across the cDuntry. has announced a 10-cent cat in retail coffee prices, effective today. The announcement yesterday by the country's largest food chain was the first drop in coffee prices by a big natioijwid-3 distributor, Smaller firms began anouncing price cuts Monday following a weekend easing of .foreign ex change regulations by Brazil. The A&P'cut applies to all its coffee brands, bringing the price oi Red Circle, 8 O'clock and Bokar labels down to $1.09. Tha three brands have been selling at a uniform pries since June. Yesterday, for the third day in a row, the price of coffee futures on the New York Coffee and Sugar Exchange dropped 2 cents a pound, the maximum reduction allowed in any single day's trading. That was the idea back of the Communist bill by the Senate 1954 budget for Hope. We covered only half of it in pledges, and less than one-third of it in. cash—$3,700, from which must be deducted $700 contributed by the City of Hope, leaving only $3,000 from private members.

Christians from aft, brother of the late Sen. Sbert A. Taft of Ohio, voiced his views while delegates to the Assembly of the World Council ol Churches were engaged in a round of discussions on tho brond subject of a "responsible society." '"We Americans arc a responsible society," Taft told an audience of visitors to the convention — a gathering of representatives of 1C3 denominations from 4H nations. Ho mentioned social security, Vfcjrkrnen's 'compensation for injuries on the job, the minimum wage law, the 40-hou 1 . 1 week, farm price floors and public housing, and said: "I am not recitint; these facts to boast -but to show you that we are not, and probably never have been, laissez-faire eapialisni. In nearly all of this legislation and in its enforcement has been evidence of the s Irons reform in .acts of America. It comes in part out of our religious and missionary background." The day's program • of' the as ties into the federally designated drought disaster area has ben sounded .by four members of Arkansas' Congressional delegation. And the Arkansans also asked a broader aid program for farmers in the drought counties. Reps. Mills, Trimble, Hays and Harris carried their appeal to the director of agriculture services Kenneth L. Scott. Mills and Trimbls told newsmen that Scott promised to give the matter consideration. President Eisenhower has .designated 28 drought counties in Arkansas, but the congressmen told a newsman that "many farmers in other counties ar-2 suffering as much as those in the drought counties." Mills said the group urged- that federal lending agencies not press farmers on debts and that a program be prepared for debts owed by farmers to private credit agencies. Mills quoted Scott as saying there would be no problem as far as government loans are concerned. But the congressman said Scott doubted the government had the authority to refinance private debts. Scott was urged to arrange for Premier Fears i France Might Go Leftist BRUSSELS, Belgium' W—French Premier Pierre Mendes - France Said today that if his proposals for changing the European Army Treaty are rejected France might swing in another crisis to a leftist government similar to the prewar "popular front." > The popular front was a coalition of Socialists and Radical Socialists headed b'y • Socialist Leon Blum. Its policy was social reform rather than Marxism, But the period was marked by widespread strikes and other disorders.

He' said he had drawn his proposals for revision to find some way of salvaging something from the idea. The declared rejection of his proposals would certainly result in a negative vote in the parlia^ ment. this could be followed, he argued, by a crisis in the North Atlantic Community. All this would be a victory for the Russians, he asserted — a victory "which'would cost them nothing." A French source, when told of this version, said "that sounds OK." • . :: .
