Another Pecos business per- sonality said: "Maybe all this will in' the long run settle our valley down." Pecos, newly enriched the last decade by fabulous irrigated farming, does indeed sound at times like a never-never land. Cotton and truck operations are here big business (or this is three bale to the acre farming. Financial talk lends to run any time into the hundreds of thousands and even the mil- lions of dollars. Talk of lawsuits and mort- gages runs now to those same astounding money figures. The two Pecos banks have formally and publicly announced they would be only slightly af- fected, if affected at all by the crisis. The farm land and the irriga- tion wells are unstirred by the talk. But, even a curlailm.cnl of the Esles operations would be felt in business circles. Pecos had, last census, 728 persons of which an esti- mated 35 lo 50 per cent are Latin American. As estimated no authentic, public report of Ihe exacl num- ber is available 400 persons approximately arc employed by some of the businesses with which Estes is associaled. An estimated 40 farmers in this area are involved in the mortgages for anhydrous am- monia tanks, some of which the federal government charges are not in place on farms for which they were nurchased. Therefore, because of the va- riety of people directly involved in the Estes fortunes, there is fear many others could be af- fected indirectly., such persons as the grocer, (he milkman, Ihe clothing merchant, the landlord. "We might as well laugh as a business woman re- marked. So laugh some Pecos people do at wry jokes they are making, "Come Easter we're not going to hunt Easter eggs. We're go- ing to hunt adhydrous ammonia one said. The oft repeated in the newspapers about Estes' start as a'boy wonder of finance with one ewe lamb inspires wise- cracks: "Billie Sol must have crossed that 'ewe lamb with a jackrab- bit." "One thing you'll have to say. Billie Sol has made us more famous than poor old Judge Roy Bean ever someone remarked.

Amusements Farm news, markets By MICHAEL GOLDSMITH ALGIERS (AP) Secret army agents slew nine Moslems in the Algiers area Monday. But the ter- rorist campaign against Algerian independence seemed to ebb somewhat. The city's terrorist loll dropped lo less than half the record fig- ures of the past three days, when ,he secret army had stepped up its campaign of slaughter to pro- ,esl the French referendum on Algeria's future. European settlers regarded the i French people's sweeping approv- al Sunday of President Charles do Gaulle's self-determination policy for Algeria with a mixture of re- sentment and indifference. Most of Ihc-m still would like to keep Algeria French at any cost. One secret army source said. "Our fight goes on." But he admitted that Hie cap- lure of ex-Lt. Roger Dcgueldro. a Belgian-born former Nazi offi- cer alleged to have directed ter- rorist activities in the Algiers area, was a heavy blow lo the organization. Degueldre, a deserter from the Foreign Legion, was ar- reslcd in Algiers Saturday and flown to Paris for trial. French authorities in the west- ern Algerian city of Oran sus- pended its tw'o daily newspapers because of pirate editions run off by Ihe secrel army in the news- paper shops. While printers worked at gun- point, the back pages were turned into a sort of poster protesting the referendum in France. Secret army groups of about 40 men each had brought along their own makeup. Police sought to deter- mine whether there was complic- ity on the part of Ihe employes. In Paris, De Gaulle studied the details of the 90 per cent endorse- menl he gol in the Algerian peace referendum and pondered the ad- vantages of calling a new parlia- mentary election or reshuffling the Cabinet.

It to M Danger Section Enlarged By LEWIS GULICK WASHINGTON (API-President Kennedy and British Prime Min- ister Harold Macmillan have agreed on a public statement jus- tiiying anew U.S. resumption of nuclear tests in the air, informed sources said Monday night. It is anticipated that the joint declaration will be issued Tues- day and will offer Soviet Premier Khrushchev a last chance to halt the tests by reversing his stand against a cheat-proof nuclear test- ban treaty. Officials here saw virtually no hope that Khrushchev would alter his position but felt the statement would impress the world anew that the West is sincerely anxious to avoid the new tests, if it could be done on a basis compati- ble with national security. The tests are scheduled to start late this month and will be car- ried out in two mid-Pacific test areas. The assistant White House press secretary, Andrew Hatcher, scheduled a briefing for newsmen on an international subject for Tuesday at a.m. Hatcher declined to specify the nature of the announcement but did tell a questioner that "reports originating in London to the effect that such a message is under con- eralion and being weighed by jPrime Minister Macmillan and President Kennedy are true." The London reports spoke of a Kennedy-Macmillan appeal to Khrushchev to help stave, off re- sumption of atmospheric tests. Washington sources said, how- ever, that the Western statement would not be a message sent per- sonally to Khrushchev but. would outline in detail the reasons, for going ahead with the weapons tests.
