Vesey Asks Early Refunding Hearing Contends Validity Should Bo Decided Before Special Election LITTLE ROCK -(/)')— Expressing the belief that the validity of Governor Carl E. Bailey's SMl.800,000 highway bond refunding program should be determined before a special election was held on the proposal, Rep. John P. Vesey, of Hope, asked Attorney General Holt Wednesday to arrange an early hearing on the suit now pending in Pulaski chancery court challenging its constitutionality. An act of last summer's special legislative session authorizing the refunding has been referred to the voters by petition. Mistrial Ordered By Judge Bush In Daugherty Case Arson Trial Brought to Dramatic Ending In Court Here TRUCK FIRE CHARGE Andrew Neal, White Youth, Exonerated On Theft Charge Circuit Judge Dexter Bush brought the arson Irial of Marion Daughlery. young white man, to a dramatic ending in circuit court here Wednesday morning when IK- declared a mistrial and withdrew the case form the jury. Daughtcry was on trial for the alleged burning of hi.s truck May 2, H138. State Fire Marshal Guy f. Williams of Little Rock was assisting Prosecuting Attorney Dick Huie in the case. They .sought to bring out other matters in the past life of Daugh- tcry. which brought repeated objoc- ions from the defense- attorney, John P. Vescy.

Among those who suffered minor injuries were Ford, Harris, Buttry, and Crowe. Krtfut all indications, the Bobcats use very little offense other than their rmnshcs into the line with an occasion• nl pass mixed in. The heaves usually go to Norman Green, big six foot-plus end who Jonesboro fans remember mostly for his basketball playing last winter. On the other end of the line is Joe "Gorilla" Eason, captain and one of the hardest charging flnnknicn in the state. Both of the ends will weigh more than 1*5 pounds. Coach Foy Kammons has more than enough weight at the tackles. The two starters Wes Calhoun and Major Simp*.son, weigh 235 and 255 pounds, respectively. The other tackle is Mike Snyker, who weighs close to 180. , Small IJut Fast Guards The guards will be h'mall, but they are the hardest chargers on the team. Despite Die fact lhal they arc considered small, they are larger than the Hurricane sentinels. Tom Quimby weighs 165 and Mack May 1B7. At center is Bill Tom Duncly, a great defensive man who weighs 175. He steps .into the lino wherever he .sees fit and usually has his opponents well crossed. Roy Taylor is probably the outstanding member of the hackficld, but such hoys a.s Bobby Kllen, Dave Colcman, Jimmy Simins, Sonny Murphy, Charley Baker and Bill Daniels cannot be overlooked.
