Using this as their basic prin- ciple, the Wino- na Goodfellows seek to outfit the city's needy chil- Big Time at Wigwam Farm Family Day Draws 500 for Fun, Instruction By FRED LEIGHTON Republican-Herald Area Editor More than 500 farmers and their families from the seven-county Winona area were on hand at the Red Men's Wigwam here at noon today, and more were arriving by the minute for the city's annual Farm Family Day. Observers said the influx of rural folk into the city for an enter- tainment and prize-crammed farm day may represent one of larg- est such day-long meetings in the city's history. The Winona High School chapter of the Future Homemakers of Am- erica still was serving free turkey luncheons at 1 p.m. Separate after- noon programs for men and women were scheduled to be launched at and the program was to end at 3 p.m. in a grand finale a joint meeting for both men and women in the main auditorium of the Wigwam. Talk on Drying Hay Leading off the day's program at a.m. was Kenneth W. Wes- terberg, consulting agricultural engineer and president of Farm Engineering Sales, Inc., speaking on "Hay Drying." Westerberg was introduced by Glenn M. Anderson, vocational agriculture instructor at clothing they need to protect them from the icy Minnesota winter. In past years, many Winona business firms have made contri- butions to the Goodfellows fund. In many of them their employes as well have taken up voluntary col- lections. These have been import- ant sources of Goodfellows money. If the business firms and their employes plan to contri- bute again this year, now would be in ideal time, according to Goodfellows workers. This morning the first group of needy school children was taken to the Goodfellows shopping head- quarters where their needs were determined. Then they were taken to the stores and fitted individually with the warm clothing they need. Not enough money has been cent cut in individual income taxes and elimination of the excess prof- its tax on corporations will be pro- posed as soon as the new Congress convenes next month, Rep.

KELLY WASHINGTON HV- An 11 per in the world Westerberg told his audience, "where labor is at an absolute premium. We can't go back to the clumsy ways of hand labor. We must move ahead into the world of machinery." He warned, "The day of little hay cocks in the field' is gone, and today we must cure our hay before j His proposal calls for a reduction of slightly more than 5 per cent in individual income taxes next year and a similar reduction in 1954, for a total cut of about 11 per cent. The 1951 tax bill raised individual I rates by 10 to 11 per cent. The in- j WASHINGTON U.S.-Brifish Trade Treaty Plan Examined Australian Minister Suggests Plan at Commonwealth Rally By ARTHUR GAVSHON LONDON Leaders of the British family of nations ex- amined an Australian proposal to- day for a unique United States- Commonwealth treaty of trade and friendship aimed at making it easier for the rich dollar and the poor pound to live together. Australian Prime Minister Rob- ert G. Menzies was reliably re- ported to have suggested the treaty at yesterday's session of the nine nation Commonwealth Premiers Conference. Informed sources said the proposal would cover: 1. Commonwealth pledges to ease controls on the movement of money, especially those ham- pering U. S. investors in the Brit- ish nations from taking back to America in dollars their capital and earnings. Arrangements Speeded Up 2. Speeding up arrangements to eliminate double taxation which in some Commonwealth countries leaves dollar investors liable to, pay taxes both to that nation and to their own governments. 3. Gradual extension of the con- vertibility of the pound so that eventually a person with pounds could swap them freely for any other foreign currency. 4. Cast-iron arrangements for re- moving or scaling down the Com- monwealth system of imperial preferences and United States tar- iff quotas. Imperial preference is a system of "buying British" which has grown up as a means of protecting Commonwealth goods and industries. Most of the Commonwealth, group are known to favor these general principles. Menzies' idea to embody them all in a trade and friendship treaty apparently is After details are threshed out in the next few days, the Common- wealth statesmen likely will give Britain's Prime Minister Churchill and his chancellor of the exchequ- er R. A. Butler, a mandate to go to Washington to talk the whole thing over with President-elect Ei- senhower soon after he is installed next month. In addition to considering this proposal, today's session of the conference had to follow up yes- terday's discussion on the develop- ment nf the Commonwealth's own resources.

The speaker cited field tests where shat- tered leaves were picked up from one three-foot area in a typical field following the pick-up of too- dry alfalfa. He told his listeners, "If you shock out one-half the leaves in a ton of hay, you lose the equivalent of seven bags of bran and I don't have to remind any of you the cost of'a bag of densome taxes which are seriously jeopardizing our nation's econo- my."

It was during part of that per- iod that Nunan 'was the nation's top collector of taxes as internal revenue commissioner. Last September, the same Brook- lyn jury indicted Daniel A.

OPS, meanwhile, suspended re- tail and wholesale price ceilings on almost all men's clothing. Kept under controls were men's surgical articles like abdominal belts and braces. The new order lifts ceilings at once from men's suits, overcoats, bats, sport clothing and so on, as well as from furnishings and ac- cessories such'as gloves, suspend- ers, handkerchiefs and the like. Ceilings previously were removed on shoes, hosiery, women's milli- nery and almost all women's ap- parel. Still under study are ceilings on beef. But there is talk in high OPS circles that these may be suspend- ed, rather than make any compli- cated changes in regulations to roll back ceilings. A staff report on beef is due this week.

PEACOCK WASHINGTON UP) The uneasy post-convention truce between Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower and Sen. Robert A. Taft blew up today over the Republican selection' of Martin Durkin, a Dem- ocrat and union official, to be his Secretary of Labor, Taft's blast at what he termed this "incredible" appointment swept away in one moment the outward show of harmony and co- operation built up in the months since Eisenhower defeated Taft for the Republican presidential nom- ination. Sen. Taft, who campaigned for Eisenhower after losing the GOP nomination to him, said in a pre- pared statement: "The appointment of Mr. Durkin is an incredible appointment. This is no reflection on the character or ability of Mr. Durkin. I had number of talks with Mr, (Robert) Brownell who has been the key man in Cabinet appointments, and made several recommendations of qual- ified men. 'Partisan Democrat1 "It was never even suggested that a man would be appointed who has always been a partisan Truman Democrat, who fought Gen. Eisenhower's election, and advocated the repeal of the Taft- Hartley law. "It is an affront to millions of union members and officers who had the courage to defy the edict of officials like Mr. Durkin that they vote for Stevenson. This ap- pointment leaves without represen- tation in the Cabinet those lions of Democrats, North years and in the organization since C47 Crashes With 13 Aboard SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. An Air Force C-47, with 13 men aboard, apparently crashed during the night at 'the level in the San Bernardino mountains, the sheriffs office reported today. Deputy Sheriff Loring Poleman of Victorville said he saw a big fire-in the mountains north of here and west of Big Bear Valley about 4 a.m., which finally died out. Checking again at daybreak, he could still see smoke from the spot, well above the snowline, which was about 4500 feet high. Ground parties from George Air Base at Victorville, March Air Base, and sheriff's stations here and at Victorville headed into the area in mid morning. Clouds which still covered the area earlier were clearing, and flights were sent out from March Air Base to attempt to locate the wreckage.

Announced by Vandenberg The designations of Durkin and Weeks were announced by Arthur H. Vandenberg Jr., who will be Eisenhower's White House secre- tary. Vandenberg also announced the designation .of Walter Williams of Seattle as under secretary of com- merce. He was chairman of the national "Citizens for Eisenhow- er." CIO leaders took the selection of a labor man as an indication that the Eisenhower administra- tion wants to get along with or- ganized labor. The naming of Durkin was hailed by George Meaay, recently elected president of the AFL, who called Durkin an "outstanding trade unionist." The complete cabinet lineup now stands this way: E. Wilson, De- troit; Foster Dulles, New York; M. Humphrey, Cleveland; Agriculture Taft Benson, Salt Lake City; Douglas Mc- Kay, Oregon; P. Durkin, Chicago; clair Weeks, Boston; Attorney Gen- BrowneH' Jr., New York; Postmaster E. Summerfield, Flint, Mich.

Since the July GOP convention, one of the big questions on the political horizon has been how Ei- senhower, if elected president, would get along with the Ohioan, SHOPPING DAYS LEFT ftUYCHUSTMMSEAUi Sen. Robert A. Taft acknowledged to be the most in- fluential of Republican senators. It is reduced now to more spe- cific questions: 1. Will Taft fight Senate con- firmation of Durkin? Taft didn't say in his statement caDing Dur- kin "a partisan Truman Demo- and the appointment a double-barreled affront: to Demo- crats who voted for Eisenhower and to union members who sup- ported the GOP candidate despite AFL-CIO- endorsement of Demo- cratic nominee Adlai Stevenson. The Senate's attitude usually has been that a president is entitled to have any reasonably qualified person he wants in his cabinet. 2. Is there to be an open strug- gle between the Taft wing of the Republican Party and the elements which by and large have followed the leadership in recent years of Gov. Thomas E. Dewey of New York? By implication, Taft said the Deweyites had taken control of pat- ronage and were responsible for Durkin's appointment. He said in his statement that "-Mr. (Herbert) BrownelL has been the key man" on Cabinet appointments. Brownell was Dewey's campaign manager in 1948 and Eisenhower has chosen him to be his attorney generaL 3. What will be tee effect of Taft's sense that the (Continued on Page 15, Column 2.) IKE ;
