Exhibitors will begin showing their horses in 13 halter classes at 9:30 a.m. Twelve performance events are scheduled to start at 1:30 p.m. John Brown of Gainsville, chair man of the trophies and awards committee, said a high-point tro phy will be awarded to the best animal in a minimum of one halt er and two performance classes. Trophies and rosettes will be awarded to the grand champion stallion, mare and gelding and the reserve champion stallion, mare and gelding. Winners of halter classes will receive individual tro phies and ribbons. Performance event winners will get sterling belt AN UNPAID TESTIMONIAL Napoleon Bonaparte says: Fd new hm lost to Wdlinqlm ...tnrd km a Jockey ® BRAND POWER-KNIT T-SHIRT Q: You mean... ? A:Oui!

Judging halter and performance classes will be Weldon McConnell of Dalhart, well known Quarter Horse authority. The show will feature a NCHA cutting horse contest. Halter classes will include 1961, 1960, 1959 and 1958 stallions; stal lions foaled in 1957 or before; 1961 mares, 1960 mares, 1959 mares, 1958 mares, and mares foaled in 1957 or before; geldings foaled 1959 or later, geldings foaled in 1957 or 1958, and geldings foaled in 1956 or before.

Neff said all entries must be registered with AQHA (perma nent, tentative or appendix); NQHBA horses are eligible. For halter classes, foals, yearlings and 2-year-olds listed in the appendix are eligible. Stallions and mares 3 years of age or over must have a registration number. Geldings need appendix registration only. For registered performance class es, appendix registration only is necessary on all horses. He said the age of a horse will be computed from the first of Jan uary of the year foaled. The show will be held, rain or shine, with an indoor arena avail able in case of rain, Neff said. Free stalls will be available for exhibitors at the auction barn and the show grounds on a first-come- first-served basis. Mail all entries to Miss Bow man, 2200 Lincoln, Fort Worth 6, Texas. ARMY APPEAL Missile Killer Step-up Sought The Associated Press WASHINGTON — Secretary of the Army Elvis J. Stahr Jr. ap pealed to senators Thursday to back rapid development of the Nike-Zeus missile killer. Apparently disagreeing some what with President Kennedy’s de cision to limit funds for the Nike- Zeus program, Stahr told the Sen ate Armed Services Committee: “I submit that we must also continue urgently to seek an effective anti missile defense. We therefore de sire to push rapidly forward with the further development of Nike- Zeus, the only anti-ballistic missile weapons system under active de velopment in this country.” In their revised defense budget of nearly $44 billion, Kennedy and Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara turned down Army appeals for funds to speed up the antimissile weapon. Support for Kennedy’s stand came from Chairman Richard B. Russell, D-Ga., who said he backed the administration’s posi tion that the Nike-Zeus program should be limited to the develop ment stage until more tests are completed. Russell, whose committee is hearing the views of top military leaders at closed-door sessions, said he also may support the ad ministration’s proposal to cut back development of the B70 Air Force bomber to an experimental re search basis. 600 Expected For FFA Meet Here April 8 Blue jackets and competition .will be the order of the day for the A&M campus April 8. Some 600 high school students of vocational agriculture wearing the blue jackets of their official or ganization, the Future Farmers of Ameidca, will be competing in six different contests that day.

The contest will begin at 8 a.m. Awards to winning teams and high point individuals will be pre sented at 2:00 p.m. in the chem istry building. Dr. J. R.

The GOP leaders, Sen. Everett M. Dirksen of Illinois and Rep. Charles A. Halleck of Indiana, made their indirect attacks on U. S. policy in Lao at their weekly news conference. They said a coalition government eventually would become a Communist giov- ernment. Dirksen and Halleck stressed they did not want to embarrass President Kennedy while he was negotiating with Prime Minister Harold Macmillan of Britain. Then, however, Dirksen and Halleck went on to announce they were distressed by roving Ambas sador W. Averill Harriman’s state ment that Laos would have to have a coalition government to become neutral. Earlier, Sen. Hubert H. Hum phrey, D.-Minn., had called on Re publicans to stop what he termed their “political guerrilla warfare” against Kennedy’s efforts to solve the crisis in the Southeast Asian kingdom. “The critical international situ ation in Laos should not be ex ploited for partisan advantage,” Humphrey said in an interview. “Political settlement will require a coalition government. But coali tion does not mean Communist inclusion or domination,” he said. “To define coalition as meaning including Communist inclusion is engaging in emotional misrepre sentation. We should seek to strengthen the hands of our nego tiators rather than try to tie them.” But Dirksen, Senate Republican leader, and Halleck, House Re publican leaders, renewed a GOP warning against such a coalition government. They added, however, they had agreed not to make a written statement. Dirksen said there would be no such statement “so there will be no embarrassment 37 Will Attend Range Field Trip chief engineer of the Gulf Oil Corp., from 1941 until his retire ment about five years ago.

At a fund-raising dinner in Vir ginia Wednesday night, Republican National Chairman Thurston B. Morton said Kennedy should re pudiate Harriman’s statement. “Everyone knows that forcing Laos to accept a coalition govern ment would be the same as de livering it into the hands of the enemy,” Morton said. Sen. Wayne Morse, D.-Ore., told the Senate Thursday, “There is no will to fight in Laos.” He said much of the U. S. military aid sent there had been wasted com pletely. “We’ve got to see that the Com munist advance doesn’t continue in Laos,” Morse said, but he added the American people should be told of “our past mistaken policies in Laos.” “We have much to answer for, he continued, citing what he called corruption and inefficiency in tb r handling of the foreign aid pi gram in Laos.
