The driver of the car, Alejandro C. Flores, 37, Los Angeles, over-corrected when his vehicle ran off the right side of the roadway, causing it to veer across the centerline and strike the camper, officers said. LITTLE ROCK (AP) - Arkansas Community Organizations for Reform Now disputed Sunday a published report on its income sources. The Arkansas Democrat said the group, commonly known as ACORN, apparently gets most of its financing from outside the state. The article said ACORN budgeted $35,797.42 in 1973 and proposed $83,540 for 1974. All but 20 per cent came from outside Arkansas. Wade Rathke of Uttle Rock, chief organizer for ACORN, termed the figures "astronomically high," but he refused to divulge ACORN budget facts. The Democrat said a copy of ACORN's budget summary showed the 1973 and 1974 figures and fund sources, including three out-of-state foundations. This document, Rathke said, was stolen, probably from a Uttle Rock church, and then passed to newsmen. He also said it was not accurate. He declined to elaborate when newsmen suggested that an inaccurate budget document would not likely be kept on file. While Rathke has said most ACORN activities were financed from $1 monthly dues payments by member families, the group never has revealed its full financial picture. ACORN had 3,600 member families last year and about 4,500 this year, Rathke said. Some members did not pay their dues, he said. The document published by the Democrat showed 1973 funds included $3,300 from the Lutheran Church of America in New York, $15,000 from the Children's Foundation Inc. in Washington, $9,900 from the Youth Project in Washington, and $600 by The D. J. B. Foundation in Scarsdale, N.Y. It also showed $6,997 in member dues. ACORN has six offices in the state and a staff that fluctuates between 15 and 20, Rathke said. It also has expenses for paper, postage, utilities, rent and other items, he said. "I think most people would be surprised that we run an organization as active as this on what amounts to nickels and dimes," he said. Rathke said he would not divulge financial figures on Analyst sees no problem for Thornton LITTLE ROCK (AP) - Jim Ranchino of Arkadelphia, a political analyst, predicted in an interview Sunday that Rep. Ray H. Thornton, D-Ark., will experience little voter raft for his impeachment vote. Thornton, a member of the House Judiciary Committee, voted for three articles of impeachment .. Some state Republican leaders had predicted that Thornton's vote would hurt his reelection chances, Ranchino added. However, he said the vote should "be no problem at all to him politically." Ranchino said he thought Thornton acted "very professionally" and cast his vote on "what he thought was right...based on a great deal of facutal information." Concerning the 3rd District Congressional race, Ranchino predicted that ex-President Richard Nixon's resignation would assure the re-election bid of Rep. John Paul Hammerschmidt, a Republican. Ranchino said that the resignation probably turned the tide in what would have been a close race for Hammerschmidt against Democratic nominee Bill Clinton of Fayetteville, a University of Arkansas law professor. "One thing that could have heated it (the campaign) up would have been House proceedings of impeachment and how Hammerschmidt conducted himself," he said. With the diffusion of the Nixon issue, Ranchino said the only issues in the race are "the old issues of economy and the like." ACORN. "When did the Uttle Rock Chamber of Commerce, the Fifty for the Future, and Uttle Rock-UP reveal their budget figures?" he asked rhetorically. On some issues, ACORN has taken a stand opposed by those groups. "To simply focus on us is very selective," Rathke said. "I'll bet some of these other groups have more money in savings accounts than we spend in a year." Earlier this year, ACORN announced that a ACORN members and persons endorsed by ACORN had won a majority of the positions on the Pulaski 1 County Quorum Court, the county legislative body. The Chattagoocna County courthouse in Cusseta, Ga. is the only all-wooden courthouse still in use in Georgia, and ooe of the few in the nation. By FRED S. HOFFMAN Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - Although a strong defense advocate, President Ford will make the Pentagon pull in its belt to save money, close associates predict. The first belt-tightening move may come within two months. A source familiar with Ford's thinking says the Pentagon "probably will have to eat" a pay increase of about $1.5 billion due in October for more than 2,160,000 military men and women and about one million civilian employes. By this, the source said he meant the Pentagon will have to absorb the increased cost, perhaps by cutting the number of personnel below levels planned by the Nixon administration. Some of those advising Ford believe the biggest spending cuts should come in manpower costs, which now account for about 55 per cent of the defense budget. Besides pay, such costs cover housing, food, clothing, medical care and other support of military personnel and their families. A new White House push to trim military manpower further could bring the first strain between the new President and Secretary of Defense James R. Schlesinger, who has said U.S. forces already are thin. Associates of both men say Ford and Schlesinger agree on most major defense questions, including a cautious approach to a new strategic arms limitation agreement with Russia. Like Schlesinger, Ford has called attention to the pace of Soviet weapons developments and said that "to prevent a serious imbalance, we must continue to modernize and improve the readiness of our combat forces." While supporting detente as a goal, Ford has said, "we must insure that our good will is not misconstrued as lack of will." Ford, who served for years on the House Defense Appropriations subcommittee, supports many of the key weapons programs which have been urged by Schlesinger and former President Richard M. Nixon. sari ly move at the same pace in all such programs as he looks for ways to reduce defense spending while maintaining a strong defense, associates said. For example, some advisers indicated that he might slow the advanced Bl bomber while moving ahead as planned' with deployment of the new Trident missile-firing submarine force. Also, they said Ford will carry forward nuclear weapons improvements and initiatives schwesinger has supported as hedges against continued growth in Soviet missile strength. But one adviser forecast these programs will proceed at "a very low level" of funding.
