Kathy Sue Mansfield takes the matter somewhat less seriously. 3 scions taking poll on building program LITTLE ROCK (AP) Three state legislators are polling General Assembly members to gather support for their efforts to stall the beginning of a 75 million office construction program on the state Capitol grounds. State Sen. Morriss Henry of Fayetteville and Reps. Thomas E. Parks of Fordyce and L. L. "Doc" Bryan of Russellville have sent letters to all 135 legislators asking their opinions on the project. Henry said Tuesday that the responses were running against the project. He said that of the 20 replies he has received, only two favor the project. The Legislative Council, which has approved the state Public Building Authority's plan to issue $75 million in bonds for the project, will consider the matter again on Thursday. Henry said he hoped t<j have enough replies then ^to give the council an idea of the legislators feeling on the plan. The PBA was created in 1973 to plan for a large scale development of the Capitol grounds for office buildings, a state library and archives. The letter to the legislators said, in part: "Our feeling is that the use of state tax money for such an expensive project, which will obligate us for the next 20 to 30 years, should require at the very least, the approval of the entire legislature, and perhaps the voting public." The letter said the council had given the PBA approval on Aug. 1 to spend "millions of state tax money on a complex of state office buildings designed by California consultants." The letter told legislators that if they did not respond to the questionnaire it would be assumed that they favored proceeding with the project. The legislators were given three choices — to let the legislature allow the public to decide the issue, to let the legislature vote on the plan or to let the plan proceed as it is. Henry has suggested that a suit might be filed to stop the PBA from proceeding until the . legislature meets again." Bryan said Tuesday that if most legislators reponding to the survey approve of the building plans, he doesn't think anything more will be said about it. However, if a majority disagree with the plans, Bryan predicted some type of action will be taken quickly. Appeals court denies prosecutor's petition LITTLE ROCK ZAP) - The U.&L 8th Circuit Court of Appeals has denied a petition filed by Pros. Atty. Lee Munson of Litle Rock, who was seeking to prohibit the adjudication of a suit filed against him by Dr. Grant Cooper in U.S. District Court here. Munson had maintained that the court in Arkansas had no jurisidiction in the case. Cooper, a Communist, was recently ousted as a history professor at the University of Arkansas—Little Rock. He sued Munson in May contending that he was in danger of being prosecuted by Munson under Arkansas' anti-Communist statutes. The suit challenged the constitutionality of the statutes and asked for a declaratory judgment on their constitutionality. Federal courts cannot issue such declaratory judgments unless the plaintiff asking for such a judgment is in danger of being prosecuted under the challenged law. Judge G. Thomas Eisele of UmS. District Court here, ruled Aug. 2 that Cooper was in danger of prosecuting and he agreed to enter a declaratory judgment on the constitutionality of the statutes. Munson then filed a petition with the appeals court, asking that Eisele be enjoined from hearing the suit. Munson argued that he would not prosecute Cooper — at least not until the Arkansas Supreme Court had ruled in an appeal of a suit by which Cooper's teaching salary had been cut off. However, evidence presented at the hearing in Eisele's court showed that Cooper might be prosecuted before the Arkansas Supreme Court made a ruling if Cooper committed certain acts that Munson believed fell into the confines of what Munson expected the state court decision would be.
