New Calls Heard
For Benson Ouster
MINOT, N. D. (IP) The touring Senate Agriculture
Committee today heard new calls for the resignation of
Agriculture Secretary Ezra T. Benson and a warning that
“we are due for some land reform whidh will distribute
the ownership of land more equitably.” * "
Oswald K. Ophaug. a spokesman
for the Nelson County chapter of
the Farmers Union, told the com
mittee there will always be a
"farm problem" while farmers are
divided into classes by the size of
their farms.
“We ask for the resignation of
Ezra Taft Benson because of his
attitude toward the farm problem,
which we feel does not serve the
general national interest," Ophaug
Ophaug testified today at the
fifth in a series of farm hearings
scheduled to gather “grass roots”
advice before the committee writes
Sorrell Caused Own Death
The inquest jury meeting night

his own negligence.
Jack Johnson, employee of Gen

Sorrell's noting the train’s approach
and that apparently he had some
thing on his mind.

its attack on the administration's
flexible price support program and
demanded rigid farm price props
at 90 or 100 per cent of the “fair
income" parity level.
Robert E. Lee, a Larlmore, N. D,
farmer and Farmers Union leader,
said he “highly recommended" Ben
son’s removal.
“My take-home pay is down to
the point where I’m not making
expenses. I’ve got a bad case of
the Benson blues," he said.
The engineer of the train which
carried Sorrell’s car three and u
half blocks, from Harnett St. to
the Divine St. crossing, said he was
running 44 miles an hour, a relati
vely alow speed. This testimony
was borne out by other witnesses,
including the conductor of his
train and the conductor of a freight
which was standing by.

Peace Offers
By Leaders
GENEVA (IP) The West
and Russia today handed to
each other rival “peace
packages” that showed them
still hopelessly far apart on
how to end the cold war.
The peace offers were contained
in Western and Soviet draft secur
ity treaties put forward at the sec
ond plenary session of the Big Four
foreign ministers conference.
The West’s package Called for
a “treaty of assurance". against
aggression for an indefenite period
of time. But it was made condi
tional on Soviet agreement to all-
German elections and German
unity in 1956.
The Soviets proposed, in turn,
a 50-year European collective se
curity treaty that would include
the United States, with Red China
as an observer. But it offered no
prospect of early German unity.
It called for scrapping of the Nortn
Atlantic Treaty Oragnization and
Western European Union alliances,
as well as complete neutralization
of Europe.
Diplomats noted at once the
Soviet plan was not new or even
warmed over.
Part of it was almost word fo r
word identical with proposals made
by Soviet Foreign Minister V. M.
Molotov at the abortive Berlin for
eign ministers conference in 1954.

Man Leaves
Seven Wives,
31 Children
Utah authorities, determined to
wipe out the practice of polygamy
by members of a dissident sect,
searched today for two men who
left their seven wives and 31 chii
dred and fled in an attempt to es
cape prosecution.
Already bailed in the new cam
paign was Louis A. Kelsch, 49, a
stonemason who has five wives and
31 children in the three apart
ments and two adjoining cabins of
his Sait Lake County farm.
Names of the other two men
were not announced publicly, by
County Atty. Frank Moss, direct
ing the anti-polygamy campaign.
Moss said the men both of
whom were arrested in the last
major drive here 11 years ago—
apparently had learned of the com
plaints and had run away.
At the same time it was revealed
that the 1955 session of the Utah
Legislature had quietly appropriat
ed $20,000 for “law enforcement.”
Although nothing was said about
polygamy in the iegisls '-r “ w**
understood that Ihc fund would be
used “to wipe out plural mar
riage.” a practice that was out
lowed before Utah became a state.
Members of the fundamentalist
sect to which ail known advocates
of polygamy belong claim their
strength in Utah to be as great
as 20.000 men, women and children.
State officials believe there are no
more than 5,000. ,
The sect members purport to fol
low original teachings of the Mor
mon faith. However, the recogniz
ed church forbade the practice of
“plural celestial marriage" in 1890.
