The Texas side, reckoning on a time when the twin cilios will have a water crisis of their own, wants to arrange for a pipeline to either Texarkana reservoir on Sulphur river or to Red river. But the Arkansas side, according to the vote of its city council this week, says it'll play the situation just as it is—meaning, no doubt, it won't cross any bridge until the river has run dry. ^Texarkana. is proving to the rest Of us that the only thing worse than a city short of water is two cities with a state line down their middle.

Mrs. Mallores, who was taken tc a jail cell after the court room , wW (?e removed to rent fiscal year which' began'July 1, was made public last night, 'indicating these over-all.changes': Total spending was deduced' from the $65,600,000,000 planned; when President Eisenhower submitted the fiscal 1955 budget to Congress last January to a new estimate of 64 billions. This compares with of *"7 fiOO.OOn.OOO : in the liscal year which 1 ' ended June 30, Tho • rstlmate of net biirlset ro- eipts was cut from $63,700,000 ti January to $59,300.000. Prin- iple factors' contributing . to . the eduction were congressional tnx uts, bigeer-thnn expected refunds, .nd a sharp drop in corporation ax payments. Collections'last fis- al year came to $04,500,000,000. Since the $3,400,000,000 dip in ex- uected revenues outwelslitcd tho 11,600,000,000 cut in spending, the administration's estimate : of its probable deficit at the enc} of the iscal year rose from $2,000.000,000 predicted in January to $4,700,000,100. In fiscal 1951, rc'J ink spend- ng came to 3 billions. . However, Secretary pf the Treas- n-y Humphrey told ;i news, conference the administration would try every day, every week and every -nonth" to chop spending where it would hurt neither defense nor the economy, And W. J.'MCNci!, assistant secretary of defense nnd chief fiscal officer of the Pentagon, jtp|d news-- inen that despite the new reduction in defense spending, ' 'industry would get about twice the: volume of defense contracts this year thet it received last year- This action, by putting an increased flow of defense contracts in the pipeline, would tend to spur production and employment. Secretary Humphrey Said, "we "They consider all waters between Hong Kong and Macao as Chinese," Applegale said, Chinese crewmen aboard the "Kert," which was on n shakedown cruise, tried to explain to the Communists that the yacht was in international waters but the Reds ordered them to pull into Lapseimei. Applegatn said the wind prevented them from sailing and the Communists towed tiicm into Lap- seimei and then took them to Canton where they were placed in solitary confinement in private homes for six and one-half months. t The three men did not see each other again until this morning when they were put aboard a train at Canton.
