Market Best Since 1952 Arizona cattlemen are riding saddle on the best market theyve known since 1952 Prices for cattle in general are 4 cents a pound above last year said Albert Lane extension livestock specialist at the University of Arizona Quite a few feeders have con tracted for choice steers at 24 to 25 cents a pound and for heifers at 22 cents With burnt ranges and prices below 20 cents the picture looked black to the rancher a year ago But since then things have begun to swing in his favor WE HAVE PASSED the hump on total cattle numbers Lane said There are fewer cattle to sell this year than last Part of the reason for this is in the drouth itself which forced ranchers to sell more of their cattle than they wanted to last year But also the nations herds have reached the end of a natural cycle when they normally are sliced down This meant that the ranchers STARTS TODAY Follow Football Season With Coach Lou Little The Citizen sports page today carries the first of a series of 28 articles by Lou Little one of the most influential and widely re spected men in football for the past quarter of a century As coach at Columbia University for 27 years Little frequently worked near miracles with hope lessly outmanned teams He made Columbia synonymous with upset They laughed when his Lions were picked to play mighty Stan ford in the 1934 Rose Bowl game Final score Columbia 7 Stan ford 0 They felt sorry for Little and his boys when Armys juggernaut roiled its 32gariie wining streak into Baker Field in 1947 Final score Columbia 21 Army 20 Truly it was said Columbia did a lot with a Little At the same time the master strategist wielded national influ ence on the game as the first and only chairman of the American REPULSE NEGROES Block Door At North Little Rock BULLETIN LITTLE ROCK Orval Faubus said this afternoon he has accepted a proposal of Demo cratic Gov Foster Furcolo of Massachusetts to have a bipartisan committee of governors seek a solution to the federalstate conflict in the Little Rock integra tion dispute LITTLE ROCK Ark Shouting white students grabbed six Negro youths who tried to enter North Little Rock High School today and shoved them off the campus despite the efforts of the superintendent to es cort them into the building It was the first actual physical live not from fool ball He still presides over the im portant rules committee and now he is turning his master hand to writing about the sport he knows so well His series starts on the sports page today Two articles will apj pearcach week during the football season Little opens his series with discussions of such topics as Is football good for your boy Is the j pass a fading fancy Who will be the top college teams of 1957 Then when the major teams swing into action he will analyze j last weeks results predict next trends in the everchanging game This is big caliber football writ ing by a great coach His articles will be drawn not only from his Football

miss any article in the series have been helping their own prices by looking for young heifers to resiock the ranges ANOTHER GOOD BREAK has been in an abundant feed supply With grain and alfalfa at a lower price the cattle feeders are will ing to pay more for the cows The drouth has been broken in much of the West Lane said Colorado and Wyoming are re ported in fine shape and even Texas ranchers can look at more grass than theyve seen in a long time The whole mountain area of the eastern half of Arizona has had good moisture this year and now finds itself with excellent ranges The Verde Valley is in good shape and the San Rafael Valley toward the border is from good to fair It was pointed out it takes more than one year to completely re cover from a drouth because the grass loses some of its vigor Conditions are spotty around Willcox The extreme southeast ern corner of the state which was hardest hit is sti down and Ari zona begins to brown out toward the far west BUT NOBODY is in dire straits from having been completely missed Lane said Since the cattle world is in com petition not everybody is happy without qualifications Cattle feeders are afraid they may have to pay too much for the cattle they buy compared with what it costs them to put weight on the cows in the fcedlots Nonetheless there is a general feeling from the ranchers stand point that there are favorable years ahead Lane said Perhaps best of all is the fact that it takes four years from the time a bull breeds until the heifer that is born breeds and produces its own calf That ought to keep the herd numbers at a profitable figure for at least that long he said clash between whites and Negroes and marked a new front of tension in the worsening race situation in the Little Rock area North

the line of National Guards men still stationed there with orders to refuse them admittance No Negroes showed up but the crowd found two newsmen to badger with jeers and insults Dr Benjamin Fine education editor of the New York Times and William Hines of the Washing Ion Star were baited by the crowd One woman excitedly pointed to Hines and said Thats the man who made Gov Faubus look like a fool last night Hines was one of the reporters who in terviewed Faubus on a national telecast last night The Washington reporter stood silent next to armed guardsmen A husky man in a white shirt

that given the op portunity we can accomplish an orderly and nonviolent integra tion of our public schools in this state He did not say how long that would take Faubus pointed to North Dakota U S Dist

Central High must integrate forthwith The governor pointed out that Davies who arrived here only a few days ago hsd used only a total of one hour and 24 minutes for three hearings on the matter ruling each time against delaying integration LAST NIGHT in a nationally televised interview from the gov ernors mansion Faubus reaf firmed his stand to keep troops al Central High School to prevent violence which he said was im minent He has maintained that blocking Negroes from entering Central High as the federal court has di rected is simply a byproduct of his efforts to preserve the peace that he is not in conflict with the federal government and is not acting as a segregationist Faubus said in answer to a question it appeared that the pres ASKS IKE TO ACT Faubus Called Seditious By Little Rock
