The • Razorbacks scrimmaged yesterday for the first time since they began propping for the Dixie encounter and devoted most of the contact xx'ork to defense against the W. & M. attack as reproduced by \vhite-jerseyed Arkansas reserves. One determined goal line stand after another enabled Arkansas to tie Louisiana Slate 0-0 in the Cotton Boxvl last Nexv Year's Day, but Coach John Barnhill is doubtful that his charges can stage a repeat defensive performance at Birmingham. He expressed concern over the way the Whites penetrated the Reds' defense frequently.

Matty Bell, coach of Southern Methodist's Mustangs xvho play perfect record Penn State in the Cotton Boxvl, wondered how his boys could get through the Easterners' defense, which xvas the best in the nation during the regular season. Whatever happens to the Texas Christian Frogs in the Delta Bowl against Mississippi at Memphis, Tenn., they jxvon't be outnumbered. Coach Lee Dutch Meyer was en [•onto with his regular squad of 44 men, plus the "B" team also numbering 44. At Oxford, Miss., Coach Johnny Vaught put his Mississippi boys throjgh a final workout before entraining for Memphis. The 'Gator Boxvl battlers, Coach Jim Tatum of Maryland and Wally Bulls of Georgia were fearful of the outcome of the game at Jacksonville, Fla.

On Hope Sees Biggest Building Year in 1947 Including Many New Community Projects Rainfa!! Returns Wet Years A mere .16 of an inch of rainfall ast night brought the year's total o 49.09 and despite a slight drizzle early today the total is not expected to go over 50 inches at he outside, the Experiment Sta,ion reported. 1947, although considered one of the driest in history, actually returned the county to normal after ;hrce of the wettest years on record. The 33-year-averagc is slightly under 50 inches xvhich puts this year's figure in line. Last year, 1946, was one of the with 66.56 Today ends a year which probably saw the biggest building boom in the city of Hope, development and continuance of many important projects and proposal of many more for the new year. It is estimated that at least 150 new homes have been constructed here during the past year at a total cost of xvell over $450,000. The city's building permit record alone shows permission issued for construction of 40 dwellings at cost of about $230,000 and. fexv contractors or builders get permits although it is a city law. The above figure includes the $58,000 Houston-Beaty ap&rtment house which will be completed soon, but does not include the 23 homes at the Southwestern Proving Ground although the city was instrumental in securing -these homes and reselling to veterans at a In total cost of $85,000. 1947 this city saw construction of the new $60,000 Saenger Theater which will officially open on January 7; The greatest Livestock Show in history with the ad- wettest in history with 06.56 in-i,jiy on o f three new show buildings ches; 1945 had 72.48 inches and cos ting approximately $25,000; 1944 with G3.50 inches.

Dfrring action on any long' nn adjustmetn pending a de ailed study, the ICC set aside its rder of last October 3 which auth rized a temporary 10 per cen joost and issued a new order pro iding for a temporary 20 per cen ncrease.

American senators and • all kinds of other American business: men, who are bossing the western, ones and helping big business bore eeper into the industry and banks f western Germany, are passing udgment on and deciding the afr airs of Germany. "It now also is known that ac- ual poxver in the Anglo-American ones is being transferred from nited Anglo-American organs di- eclly lo Americans, who have umulaled more dollars." Molotov said assertions that so- ulion of the reparations question- Russia wants ten billion dollars) - is difficult because of. lack •• of nformation from the Soviet zone 'are, of course, baseless.". He charged that' the American delegation "undertook to .disrupt the entire work of the London con- lerence"* because "for some reason" the United States was anxious to delay settlement of Germany's future. (Secretary of State George U Marshall, in a broadcast report to the United States on Dec. 19, blamed Molotov for the failure of the London conference, asserting that the Russians -displayed ''no apparent xvill to reach a -, .settlement.") Although Molotov agreed that the London conference was a failure, he denied that it was fruitless. "At present," he declared, "al- egations are benig made that the iscussion concerning the prepara- ,on of a German peace treaty at ic ^London session was fruitless, Ithough this does not correspond o the facts. This session, chiefly through he efforts of the Soviet delega- ion, adopted a number of decisions n which progress was made in coordinating the attitudes of the four governments in regard to the pro- ceedure for the preparation of a peace treaty with Germany. iip " UseofPiiM Benton county, has eery court suit for filed a chan ^j _„„... — $1,305 agains former Sheriff W.

More Spending Shrinks Budget Surplus By CHARLES MOLONY Washington, Dec. 31 — (/P)— Increased government spending and decreased revenues during the next fiscal year may result in a shrunken budget surplus of as little as S2,500,000,000 compared with this year's prospective $6,000,000,000, government analysts said today. The result would be far less lee- xvay for reducing the public debt and cutting income taxes than has existed' during the current fiscal year ending June 30. The analysts who made the forecast explained it this xvay: 1. The administration hopes to reduce domestic spending, but its plans for foreign aid would run the total government outlay to around 839,500,000,000 for the 1949 fiscal year compared xvith $37,000,000,000 to $37,500,00,0 this year. 2. Meanxvhile, even without a cut xvell over $43,00,000,000 this fiscal in taxes, revenues xx-ojld drop from year to perhaps as loxv as $42,000,000,000 next year as declines in incomes from such sources as surplus property sales offest possibly nifiher tax receipts.
