JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - The State Highway Commission has promised to decide soon whether to let a Clarksdale manufacturer move 14-foot-wide trailer houses on state roads into Arkansas. The commission heard arguments Tuesday on whether it should allow the trailers to be shipped 6Vfe miles from near Clarksdale, where they are made, to the Mississippi River Bridge at Helena, Ark. Commission Chairman Herschel Jumper of Booneville said the commission would consider all aspects, including safety and the effect Vintage Homes has on the area's economy. Plant Manager Lee Tomlinson said the company moved the 14-foot loads during a 60- day trial period a few months ago and had no problems. He said 24 units were moved in eight or 10 trips. Graham Bramlett, president of the Coahoma County Board of Supervisors, said the industry is needed to balance the economy of the largely agricultural area. He said taxpayers who financed the plant through a bond issue would suffer if it closed. Leonard Pharr, director of the Clarksdale Chamber of Commerce, said the public had invested 15 acres and $500,000 in bonds to build the plant. Pharr said 70 per cent of the Vintage Homes jobs are for unskilled laborers who would go on welfare if the plant folds. All of the witnesses did not support the permit, however. S. T. Roebuck of Newton, representing the American Automobile Association, said his organization opposed the 14-foot loads on principle. He said they are a nuisance and are dangerous. He said that if they are allowed in one instance they soon will be "all over the state of Mississippi." James A. Henrie of New Or- leansn AAA regional public affairs director, said his organization opposes granting any "license to circumvent the law." Mrs. Charles Brett of Laurel, who testified as a citizen for the AAA position, said that if the commission approved Vintage Homes' application, a legislative bill would be introduced next session to ban 14-foot loads. Tomlinson, the plant manager, said that during the 60- day trial period the plant was given authority to drive 30 miles per hour on roads and 10 miles per hour on bridges.

Firemen picket city hall Sfofe aid increased LITTLE ROCK (AP) — Checks that were mailed this month to families with dependent children included a $5 raise per child. Social Services Commissioner James B. Cartwright said Tuesday that the staff calculated that the agency's budget could bear the increase. The increase raised the monthly payments by about $354,000, but the state pays only about $89,000 of the amount. The federal government pays 75 per cent of the costs. The increase raised the grants by more than 10 per cent. The grants to the families of 70,878 children this month to- talled $3,214,000. TEXARKANA, Ark. (AP) Fifteen members of the Texarkana, Ark., Fire Department were picketing City Hall today and a spokesman said the pickets would remain as long as necessary to establish a line of communication with the Texarkana Board of Directors. Junior Smith, president of Firefighters Local 502 of the International Association of Fire- fightersn AFL-CIO, said the union had presented its grievances and problems to City Manager Ron Copeland, "We hoped this method of dialogue would result in affirmative action by management-to implement some type of system whereby management would listen to the problems and grievances of the firefighters," Smith said in a letter to Copeland, "However, the meetings with management by members of the firefighters have not accomplished the desired goals." The letter included four demands: —Recognition of the local union by the city. —Allowing Fire Department employes to live within a 15- mile radius of City Hall instead of within a 5-mile radius as is currently stipulated. —A $50-a-month across-the- board pay raise. —A cost of living raise every six months. Firemen met with Copeland Tuesday and then the Board of Directors spent about 20 minutes in executive session Tuesday night discussing the letter. The union then held a 90-minute meeting and decided to erect the picket lines.
