ROUNDUP (Continued from Page One) Cowered shorts of Bermuda length, with a cream or white background.” Holderby also said Mrs. Hams thought the youth was either wearing sandals or was barefoot because he made . little or no noise with his feet as he ran from the office. The motel manager would not disclose how much money was taken in the robbery saying “the police didn’t think it would be a very good idea ” Holderby did say that the amount taken was not excessive, “because many peeople pay with traveler’s checks and we usually don’t have e lot of cash on hand ” In her account of the hold-up. Mrs. Harris told the Courier News, “He just came in and asked for the mon-•y. I just gave it to him and didn t argue,” she said laughing nervously. Mrs. Harris said even though the robber held her at bay with the pistol, he never threatened her life verbally. Investigation of the robbery is continuing today. THE BLYTHEVILLE Chamber of Commerce monthly luncheon will be held at the Holiday Inn at noon Monday.

Officers said the car had been abandoned in running condition. THE MISSISSIPPI County Farm Bureau yesterday sent telegrams to U.S Sen. J. Wm. Fubright and Sen. John McClellan protesting a proposed $20,000 ceiling on farm subsidy payments. In part, the message said: “Mississippi County Farm Bureau looks with increased alarm at the recent House action in voting limitations on farm payments. “We realize that some changes in farm programs are inevitable, but we think that limitations are unfair. If the $20,000 level is allowed to become law, what is to prevent a $10,000, $5,000 or $1,000 limit?” The telegram was signed by Chris Tompkins Jr. of Burdette, president of the County Farm Bureau. MISSISSIPPI COUNTY JR. COLLEGE Committee will meet tonight at 8 in the First National Bank building, according to Edwin Holstead, chairman. There is special emphasis on tonight’s meeting, Holstead said, as members of the committee will plan their house-to-house canvassing drive to contact county voters prior to the election. Hopefully, he added, women representatives from the county’s churches, ParentrTeacher Associations, and women’s clubs will be present at the planning session.
