It was the third straight month of rising costs and will mean a penny-an-hour • pay boost for about omi million workers in the auto, aircraft and farm Blow the Narrows dam to the con-| cc)U ip mcn t industries, fiuence with the Ouachita river. To Th(j Bureau or Lnbol . ate .there has been spent on the little Missouri $13,208,700.

"Land owners are not being called to the August 2'i meeting, | but they are welcome to attend '•ajjjjs listen to the proceedings and perhaps join in any discussion .pertaining to methods of procedure that may he discuss- <t,.Mr, Thatcher adds in n whimsical postscript: "Principal object of this letter— Ifmblicity." So he has it. But your editor will be at Prescott August 25 along with the rest. This Statistics reported today that its index for July was 115.2 per cent of the 194749 living cost average. This is just two-tenths of a point under the record reached last October. Workers who will get an automatic pay rise have union con tracts tied to tha index. These workers took a cut oE a pcnny-an hour last April because of living cost declines. The BLS said higher prices for fresh fruits and vegetables, owing to dry weather in the East and Mid-West, caused the July living cost' rise. Food' prices 01 Rights to Korean Veterans Extended WASHINGTON (#)— GI bill of rights benefits granted some Korean War veterans expire today but President Eisenhower is expected to sign into lav; a bill extending them for another year The bill would set Up these'new provisions: 1. A Korean veteran must begin training or education with government aid by Aug. 20, 195!i or wtlh- ing three years after his riischarge t whichever is later. The present limits arc Aug. 20. 1954. or within two years after discharge. 2 Veterans of Korea and World War II who arc eligible for education benefits by reason of-service- connected disabilities must complete their courses within 15 years after discharge, instead of the present nine years. Senate Votes Pay; Hike to Postal Workers, Compromise on Social Security Reached in the far West were- actually lower. There were no drought conditions in that area jto interfere with the usual sum---"—- i'ruits-vcgetablcs price de- clinc. Drought conditions brought average price increases of 22-i per cent for green beans, 10 per cent for oranges, 8 per cunt lor pota- ties and 7'/2 per cent for tomatoes. Official Now, Faubus Is Governor LITLE BOCK 1/8 — Official re turns of the Aug. 10 Democratic' primary show Orval- Fnubus de fe'ated Gov. Francis Cherry by (i. 911 votes. The tolal' official vote was 3,470. The totals: Faubus 191,343; Cherry 184,432, The official figures showed a ballot total of 831 more than the last inofficial returns and sliced Faub- Otis' margin over Cherry by 77 •otes as compared to the unoffic- al i figures. The Associated- Press By JOHN A. GOLDSMIH WASHINGON (UP) — The Senate, ignoring administration pro- csts, passed and sent to the House today a bill to grant a five jcr cent pay raise to all postal and cassified civil service workers. The-vote was 69. to 4. Approval came after the Senate rejected, 55 to 10, <in administration attempt to substitute a bill combining a smaller i.ay increase with arise in postal, rales. The postal pay issue was one of the last two major obstacklcs in' the way of congressional adjournment, expected late today or tonight. . The House has approved a' seven per cent-pay raJss for poslal. em- ployes only.. Unless the. House accepts the Senate version, the two differing bills will be sent to conference .to resolve the difference. , Senate TJepublican Leader Polio Vaccine Tests Proved Successful By WILLIAMW HUGHES LITTLE ROCK — (UP) The I5alk polio vaccine tests in Arkansas continue to show successful results : .despitc an upward.swing o polio°"cases in the state this year Dr. J. T Herron, state health officer, said today that only one child; given the vaccine injections in Arkansas has developed .polio and that this case was of the noiv paralytic type The case was ro ported/by a Little Rock physician and is one of only six cases tha have ('developed among 440.000 chil .dren ;given the i n o c u 1 a t i on Wil- throughout the nation. SorTnern Hempstead and loun'lies. Nevada Uig is^of vital ^importance j°JEgg and milk prices were also up *'"'seasonally. Coffee continued getting more expensive, but has now begun to decline. BLS said prices were lower for apparel, due to summer clothing sales, a'nd for new automobiles. Thre were slight cost increases in July for rents, fuel, cigarettes, and various service.3 including medical care The July figure compares with an index of 115.1 in June. And this is an opportune time to ••emind you of that Associated ress dispatch you should have ead in yesterday's edition des- :ribing the effect of the irrigation- lid'bill sponsored by Senator J. W. ifulbright and others which Presi- lent Eisenhower has just signed intgyjaw. . . Said the dispatch in part: "The new:law x x~x extends to' < all states the water facilities act previously applicable only to the Western states. Under the law, farmers or groups of farmers may borrow federal, funds to finance development of water supplies for irrigation, construction of necessary irrigation structures, and purchase of equipment. .$ " 'This law paves the way for development of additional water faciliites in Arkansas,' Fulbright told a reporter. He said development of water supplies for irrigation wells and reservoirs would enable many farmers to grow crops in times of drouth and make it possible for Arkansas and other Southern states to grow more food , for the nation." Ijfclbright pointed out that in addition to an" initial appro priation of 5 millions the new law also.authorizes the Agriculture De partment to set up ti program under which the government will [i insure similar water-development | loans made to farmers by the j banks. In brief, the irrigation benefits j formerly restricted to the deserl states of the West are now extended to,«Lhe whole nation— and in this o,,ih third consecutive dry year for the South it is a welcome move. liam F, Knowland indicated President Eisenhower would ' veto any pay raise' bill that >.locs' not provide a hike In. postal rates "I do\not.believe it v.ill bocomp law," Knowland told the Senate after his 'amendment was defeated. The Senate measure covers an estimated' 1,000,000 "classified workers and 500, postal, employes. It provides a minimum raise of S2fl a year for each postal employe and a $170 minimum for other federal employes covered by: the act. It sets a maximum increase slopped '^40 for any employe. . •of 'Fun' Over for Thrill Killing Counter-Plan Offered by Belgians By KINGSBURY SMITH BRUSSELS, (INS) —Belgian foreign Minister Paul-Henri SpaaV submitted a counterproposal to French demands today in a bid ,o save the Brussels conference on a Western European Army from collapse. Authoritative sources told International News Service mat the Spaak plan calls for French ratification of the existing EDC treaty. In return, the five other EDC nations will pledge to make certain revisions after the treaty is ratified ified by both France and Italy. On the second day of the six- nalion conference Spaal; pulled the counter-proposal out of his pocket. It was a critical moment at this morning's session when the ministers gemed to be deadlocked. The ministers were examining each French proposal point by point when those opposing tho French threw up their hands. French Premier Pierre Mendos- Franco had submitted proposals iiat would postpone for eight years lie common command, the supranational 'character oi: the project- tabulating unofficial returns the .lay after the election with all but 13"of the state's 2,328 boxes reported. The totals were Faubus, 19.0,966; Cherry, 133,978.^ That was a vote total of 374,944 and gave Faubus a lead of 6,938. State Democratic Secretary William P. Bowen will certify the pf-i ficial totals to the Stale Democratic Committs at a meeting next month and Faubus will be formally declared the Democratic nominee. T*aub'us will run in Nove against whatever Republican or independent opposition develops. He will be elected, too, unless a 75- year tradition is broken. The official tabulation switched Saline County from tho winner's column to the loser's column. The official vote was 3,494 for Cherry to 3,470 for Faubus. Complete unofficial returns also had shown Faubus with 3,470 votes, but had given Cherry only 3,406 votes The Saline County chance left FaubUs carrying 54 counties; Cher ry 21. / WASHINGTON (ffl — Ssnate- House reached ! conference; agrement committee today on a compromise social security bill extending coverage to more than 10 million additional persops, and raising benefits and the taxes to pay for them . The bill, last major piece of leg. isl^tion holding up adjournment of Congress, was to be rushed to the House floor for expected quick passage at noon, then sent Jo 1 the Senate for final congressional ac*W. "' ' "•""•* 3r " i "" The conferes settled their major difference by agreeing to : put under compulsory coverage 3,600,000 farm operators as asked by President Eisenhower. Tin's represented a capitulation on the part of the Senate conferees and a - victory for Rep.DanielA. Reed (R-NY) aniThis House 'group. Sen. George (D-Ga) told reporters he had refused to sign the conference report because of the decision to include the farm operators. He held the proxy of; Sen. Byrd (D-Va), the other Democratic senator on the conference,; and said Byrd also would not "sign. Asked if he 'would oppose the report in the Senate, George said merely he would vote against it, indicating' he planned no fight to block it. The Senate and House versions of the bill were Jn /general agre- ment on new benefit scales and on raising the tax base -from $3,600 to $4,200. Their only major difference lay in just which additional workers should be covered by the legislation, All J six cases are non-paralytic Deyelhpera of the vaccine hav never claimed it would prevent a. non-paralytic cases, but only tha it would prevent most paralysis. Some 10,000 second grade schoo children in Pulaski, Jefferson Craighead, Sebastian and Missis sippi counties in Arkansas wer given. the shots. There have bee live children of test-group age i these'/five counties who did no receive the injections and still con traded'polio. Dr. Horron said, however, th the comparison of these five wil the one inoculated child did not necessarily prove the effectiveness of the vaccine. "It's just like rolling dice," Dr. Herron said. "You may loll sevens in_j your firs"t few throws and not roll them again in a hundred throws-We have to. have many more children involved in the tests to prove anything and that is the reason for testing more than 400,000 of them throughout the country.'" But' Dr. Herron described his Ike Emphasizes GermanTroops Must Be Used Washington — Wl — Presid c n t Eisenhower told Congress today. a irrrf defense of Western Europe gainsl Russian attack will be im- lossible without German troops- to iolster the line. In a report, on tho government's oreign aid program during the irst six months during the . first ix months of this year. Eisenhower again appealed to France and taly to approve 'the European irrhy project which would make t possible to add German man- lower to Europe's defenses. "The EDC (European Defense Community)," he said, "offers the best solution for the difficult problem of inlergraling German armed forces into the European defense system. . • "No measures to defend free* Europe from Soviet aggression can be fully effective without participation," The President's statement came as foreign ministers of West Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg and'Italy were arguing in Brusscsl with French Prime Minister Pierre > Mcndcs-France over new French objections to .the plan. France and Italy alone of,, the six countries have not ratified the plan. Slaying Solved, Officer Declares SHREVEPORT, La.. —(#) Polite Chief Luther Miller says he considers the murder of a Shreveport salesman near Fort Smith, Ark., now "solved." •» Miller said a man identified as Mario Papplnl of Philadelphia" has signed a statement admitting the slayirtg of Neal W.

He had been shot through the head. Papplnl was charged with murder in Fort Smith shortly after the discovery of Vernon's automobile. Charges of interstate trans* portation of a stolen automobile also were lodged against Pappinl. Miller declined to comment further on details of the case.
