WEDNESDAY. SEPTEMBER 26, Charges of Favoritism in Selection o[: Texts Has Been Revived By TED H. MAI.OY United Press Staff Correspond™! LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Ul>)—Tile locthcomlng meeting ol the state text book commission here Friday to consider adoption of new grade school books for four subjects lias brought much stir at the capitol. Friends of publishers bidding for ttit new contracts have passed along stories or alleged favoritism 'shown competitors. One report went so far as to assure introduction of a Mil at the next legislature to abolish the uniform text book commission if a certain company receives the contract for geographies. A charge made several years ago during the Martincau administration that the Silver Burdettc company held 42 pi?r cent of the book contracts has been revived. The company is one of the strongest contenders for llic geography con- trad tills year. Distribution of Contracts A milled Press investigation into tne controversy revealed two companies holding three contracts each, four companies holding two each and nine publishers with single contracts. They arc: Silver Burdette ' Lyons & Carnahati ... Johnson John C. Winston":'.'.'.'. World Book- Company Hand McNally Macinillaii •Wheeler......'.'.'!."!.'i •Houghton Mullm .!! Scott. Poresman . Webb x Row. Peterson !!!!"!"" i Hoach 1 Little, Brown &, co '• 1 Homemaker Publishing Co!" 1 There is a difference of opinion • among commission .members as lo the value of the respjctlve contracts. One member was emphatic in his statement that silver Bur- ,aetle profittcd most by its con- 'tracts which include one for readers in the first, second and third grades. Two others insisted to the United Press that Lyons Carnahan with a contract for fourth to eighth grade English books had the best oeals. Winston with a contract for tnlrd to eighth grade arithmetics and another for geographies was another mentioned as holding most va, liable Contracts. .. , HaUng , close with Winston w as Rand McNally ff. with a history and a beginner* geography. . ; ' • Winston Leads in Sales .The .Unito] press learned from an unimpeachable source that during the past year Winston sold the most-new hooks, with Lyons nahan and Silver Burdettc rank!n» second and third respectively * Winston's new arithmetic, introduced last fall, was credited with Placing that company at the top of the list. A new reader and a new edition of a physiology text brought revenue to Lyons Carnalian Silver Bnrdette's Pathway reader, which had been supplementary, became a basal text last til.
