Jan. 15 (.f^—CwOV. Shivers of Texas declared tonight the South is still “overwhelmingly Democratic” but no longer in “bondage.” “I don't believe the Democratic party can take the South for granted. ever again.” he said. He said Texas still was Democratic and “that also is my personal status.” Shivers suggested the nation use farm surpluses instead of money in ita foreign aid program. “That would seem more logical, somehow,” he said, “than paying off both the farmer and the foreigner in cash and letting the surplus food spoil in storage.” Shivers, speaking to the New York Southern Society, took a swing at those who would wreck farm price .support.s. w'hile leaving other phases of the economy subsidized. IRON LUNG Pll^PIT—Rev. Maurice Hardman, 29-year-old Anglican minister, speaks into a microphone to make a tape recording for his congregation in Stonewall, Manitoba. The Canadian minister, stricken with polio, has been in a hospital in Winnipeg four months. It took him 15 minutes to record the eight-minute sermon because a lung patient can speak only when the lung allows him to exhale.

Jan. 15 A bill creating a .separate Air Force academy was approved, 26-0, by the House Armed Services Com- ”The farmer’s hide ought not to be made into a political football and kicked through both goal posts at the same time,” he said. Shivers termed farm price supports “a patchwork stuck on by political pressure,” and said the whole program of subsidies should be reviewed, but he added; “The farmer cannot compete in a market where the materials and services he buys are subsidized, unless he is subsidized.” The Texas Democrat, who supported President Eisenhower in the last election, noted that subsidies tariffs, tax wrlteoff|^ and other benefit.s go to transportation, business and industry affecting farm living costs. “Yet we hear it said that we ought to take away all agricultural supports and let farm prices ‘find their natural level in the marketplace of free competition’,” he said. “I repeat, the American farmer and rancher cannot afford to sell in a free market and buy in a controlled market.” Flexible Props Urged President Eisenhower and Secretary of Agriculture Benson have proposed a flexible price support policy, that would permit supports to drop as farm surpluses grew. Shivers, saying there was “increasing concern” about the “drastic drain upon our financial resources by various foreign aid programs,” suggested using “our vast farm surplu.ses” for such aid. “Whether there is merit or practicability in any .scheme to substitute butter for banknotes as a token Bitter Cold, High Winds Blowing In FOR CONGRESSMEN Election Year 'Modesty' May Kill Poy-Roise Bill W’ASHINGTON, Jan. 15 <J’>-Con-gress eyed hungrily today an officially proposed $12,50d-a-year pay raise for every member.

He declined to gi\e any indication of what the action would be. In the past he has threatened to send his 16 American-trained divisions marching into the Communist northern half of Korea. Rhee indicated his deadline would b«' April 23 and If no settlement is made by then—'something must Ih* done.” ‘ If the United States is not going to settle this question.” he declared. “then the Koreans must do It ” 'Must Do If Rhee made no mention of a mutual security treaty with the United States ratified only yesterday by the South Korean National Assembly . The U. S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee now i.s holding hearings on the pact. The pact makes clear that the I’niled States will not support Rhee in a unilateral attempt to take over .North Korea by force. Rhee said his deadline is ”180 day.s from the start of the Korean preliminary peace conference talks,'' They began Oct. 26. Third Deadline This is the third deadline Rhee had proclaimed for independent actum. The first was Jan. 27—180 days after signing of the Korean armistice. Some time ago he said that he would wait for 90 days after the start of a peace conference. The Allied and Red sides have been unable to agree on details of a peace* meeting, “IxKik at the way the talk.s with the Communists go," Rhee said. “They have been going on right UNIDENTIFIED Grid Pads Found In Clear Fork About 20 sets of football p.sds remained wet and unidentified at the county jail here Friday nigfit after being fished out of the Clear Fork of the Brazos .southwest of ^ Anson Tuesday.

Rhee replied: “1 think that would automatically relieve my government of the obligation for waiting.” Not Optimistic The 78*year-old President said he was not optimistic about a peace conference ever being held. “We are trying to get in touch with all anti-Communist nations to | join our fight against the Commu-mst.s.” he said. Rhee as.serted that the Commu-nlst.s are evacuating Koreans from North Korea and replacing them with Chinese families for permanent settlement. He said one million Chinese troops are in North Korea. Pre.sident Eisenhower and all his service chiefs, was the first to come out of a House committee this session. It may reach the House floor next week, with little prospect of important opposition. The committee also voted to authorize 26 million dollars to start work on the academy. The ultimate cost is estimated at any-w'here fixmi 125 million to a half j billion dollars.    j Rep.

The bill authorizes immediate j establishment of a temporary air school at an existing airbase and earmarks a maximum of one million dollars «f the initial funds for making improvements. Way it is too simple.” His address was at a “Dixie Dinner dance,” sponsored by the New' York Southern Society and honoring the governor and Mrs. Shivers. The society is made up of New Yorkers of Southern birth. Shivers, who helped lead his state into the Republican fold in the last election, said the Demo-cratio party now is at a crossroads where it must choose “whether to pursue the old course or another one.” “The decision will be a momentous one,” he added. Winters Slock Fanner Killed Peiping Radio Says Releasing Prisoners Would Wreck Truce By JOHN RANDOLPH 1 PAN.MUNJO.M. Saturday , Jan. 16 . Peiping radio last mghl told !

Command expressed willingness to take back custody of the 22,000 prisoners shortly after India announced Thursday its intention to free them three days ahead of the Jan. 23 deadline. Red China kept silent until last night. Ihen Peiping radio beamed a Chinese language broadcast to its own people. As heard in Tokyo, the Red China broadcast was couched in somewhat general terms. The broadcast said America’s expressed intention to take back the prisoners made the Korean situation much more critical. But it did not say just what might stem from that. Thursday In Washington, the U. S. Army chief of staff. Gen. Matthew B. Ridgway said the Reds appear to have bolstered their air bases in Korea and to have a ground force there of around a million men but there in- WINTERS. Jan. 15 (RNS> — James F. Gardner, 36.

Jan. 15 The United States, Britain and France have sent their representatives in Berlin new instruction.s aimed at solving the dispute with Russia over a site for the Four Power foreign ministers meeting. French Foreign OfHce sources said tonight. I The French sources did not dis- ! close what decisions have been reached, but informed sources in i Washington have reported the United States favors making a concession to Russia. The French ' foreign ministry expressed “sur- | prise“ at the report, however, and * said it did not “seem to correspond to reality." Russia wants half of the meet- ! ings to be held in East Berlin. ; The West has contended three-fourths of the meetings should be j held in West Berlin. The four com-1 mandants in Berlin, unable to also proposed more money for other government officials^ 1. $40.000 salaries for the vice president and the speaker of the House, plus “adequate” expense funds. They now- get $30,000 salaries and $10,000 expense accounts. 2. $39,500 for associate justices of the Supreme Court—a $14,500 increase. The chief justice, who now gets $25.500, would be raised to $40.000. 3. $27,.500 for U.S. district judges, who now' get $15.000, with pompa-rable increases for other federal jurists. Segal, who presented the report to President Eisenhower, quoted the chief executive as saying he was “whole-heartedly in favor” of substantial increases for members of Congress and judges—and for U.S. attorney.s as well. The attorneys’ pay wasn’t covered in the present survey. Segal also told reporters Vice President Nixon and House Speaker Martin <R-Mass) assured him they would seek prompt action by Congress. Privately, most members were quick to say a $27,500 salary would be none too high for the work they do and the expenses they incur. Not many cared to go on record, however, in favor of an increase which might sound bigger than necessary to the voters.

The position of the United States was rejwrted to be that the foreign ministers meeting was too important to be held up by a dispute over the meeting place. The meeting is due to start Jan. 25. The United States appeared to believe that holding half tne meetings in East Berlin would be a compromise, inasmuch as Russia originally had asked to have all of them there.

Mrs. Buxkemper Dies of Burns Suffered in Aug. 6 Accident 4 Mexicans Die In Brief Rebellion El. PASO Jan 15 (.(N—Mexuau officials said a rebellion broke out at Delicias in Southern Chihuahua today but was crushed by soldiers after a two hour gun battle. Four men were killed and several were wounded. The El Paso Herald Post correspondent said the rebels fled after the battle. He said they were followers of Gen. Miguel Guzman, defeated by .\dolfo Ruiz Cortines in the 1952 presidential election. The Herald Post gave this account: Forty' men armed with rifles and machine guns attacked the military post at Delicias at 2 a m with the intention of controlling the whole zone. A small band of soldiers fought off the band of attacker.s The rebel.« then went to the mayor's office and police .station where another battle wa.s fought, Polii*« repelled the attackers who fled to the hills.

Air Secretary Harold Talbott said in a brief .statement that two .Mr Force squadrons using the B61 Matador pilotless craft will be deployed in Europe “for use in I NATO defense.” !    To    B# Prepared The decision obviously i.s part of the recently announced policy of the United States to be prepared to retaliate instantly and with “great capacity” against any aggression. Secretary' of Defen.se Charles E, Wilson told reporters that this “Implements what we said we were going to do when we wefe over to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization conference” in December. He was asked if the move would mpan a “displacement of troops” m view of the increastd fire power provided by the guided missiles. He replied “No. not in Itself.” H’lth the Matador missile units in Europe, the atomic striking power of the United States there obviously is augmented. The dimensions of the Matador, approximately that of a jet fighter plane, make it apparent an atomic weapon will fit into it with ease. 3 Methods Thus, the United States forces will have immediately available three methods of striking at any advancing Russian forces with nuclear weapons; the guided missile; the Army’.s 280-millimeter cannon; and piloted aircraft, including the F84G fighter carrying tactical atomic bombs as well as jet and piston - driven medium bombers like the B47 (jet) and B50 and B29 (reciprocating engine). The announcement spoke only of the two “squadrons” going to Europe. 'That reference obviously was to the organization and personnel and did not disclose thé number of missiles. While a fighter squadron consists of 25 aircraft the number of pilotless craft for a missile squadron presumably w'ouid be several hundred because they, unlike planes, are expendable. They do not return for further use. The weatherman said it was doubtful If Friday night s norther would match the fury of the pre-Christmas norther which brought an 11-degree temperature here. The norther swept out of a 48-degree-below-zero region in Canada It pushed through northern Montana, bringing 20 -■ degree-below-zero weather there. Parts of it came through the Central Groat Lakes region, and southward through Michigan. Illinois, Missouri. Central Oklahoma and to the 'Texas Panhandle. Friday night the icy wake of the front stretched from Texas to the Central Great Lakes region, the weatherman said. Cold air was expected to continue rolling in bebind the front. No moisture accompanied the frigid air. the weatherman said. At Wichita. Kan., however. a small thunderstorpi was observed. Most w'Ind w'lth the norther was expected to blow 30 to 35 miles an hour. Some gusts likely would be faster, the weatherman said. The cold air came after warm rain-yielding skies covered the Abilene area Thursday night. Most of the rain fell before daybreak Friday. The moisture covered a wide area. No quick relief in the coming cold spell W’as seen. Harvard Professor Admits Red Ties BOSTXIN. Jan. 15 ti—A Harvard professor frequently the target for Sen.
