Alaska Goes Strongly <* ^ Democratic JUNEAU, Alaska (R Alaska swung strongly Democratic yesterday In its general election which in recent years has proved an accurate indicator of national trends. The political pendulum, which went the other way in 1952, swung back to give E. L. Barllett an increasingly wider margin for reelection as delegate to Congress and assure his fellow Democrats overwhelming control of the legislature. The political divisions In which Anchorage and Fairbanks are located apparently elected a solid 20 Democrats to the legislature. It is a complete reversal from their election of 17 Republicans and 3 Democrats in 1953. In three out of four divisions (districts) reporting, Democrats Were leading for seven Senate seats and the Republicans the territory's 263 precincts none; the Democrats for 19 House turns were lacking only from the division. for but fscattercfd ro; |qi?the'!bridcr sket from which I -petals in tlie Elsenbrpck of Houston, ii«.

Police were called and the boy was taken to Judge Heard. Four and one-half hours latei Joe was put in the Louisiana Training institute hero. Judge Heard explained tho boy was sent to the ' institute because iifee possibly was dangerous. "There was no father home. We have no detention home" Ine judge added.

The dangerous cements 1 , which have been 'present- iri' iv lr(dohesia j s politics ever since it gained sovereignty from the Dutch are com- ming more and more to the fore. Thus Gen..

Cotton Farmers to Vote Dec. 14 on U.S. Proposal WASHINGTON (/P) — The nation's cotton fanners aill vote Dec. 14 on an Agriculture Department proposal that would reduce market ings of tho 195-3 fiber crop about 16 per cent below this year's restricted level. Secretary of Agriculture Benson yesterday set the 19155 crop marketing quota at 10 million bales the minimum permitted by law in a move to restrict proclucton and reduce a current surplus. By comparison this year's crop also grown under controls has been estimated at 12M> million bales. The previous year's production was $164,000,000 bales. To become effective lh» Benson proposal must b« apjj;ovod by at least two-third? o f the growers vot ing. This year's control program won approval by a majority of 84 per cent. Grower-; never have rejected quotas . on cotton. To implement the quota pro gram Benson nnnounced thnt -the dcpartmen t will allot acreage planting shares .totaling 13,113,208 acres. This year 21,379,,000 acres •vere alloted but only an estimated 20 million were planted. In 3953 when there were no controls farmers planted nearly 25 million acres... The control program carries strong economic weapons for cdm- pliance. If a farmer overpkmts his allotment he must pay a c'as' v.-enalty equal to . 50 par cent o: the parity price on the excess cotton. Parity is a standard foi measuring farm prices declared by law to be fail to farmers in relation to their cpsp.
