I , ! Wednesday. September 4, 1974 HOPE (AUK.) STAR t*agc Nine ^"^™> News Briefs LITTLE ROCK (AP) - Judy Petty the Republican candidate for Congress from the 2nd District, announced Tuesday the appointment of Jerry Vo- welgesang as youth coordinator for her campaign. Vogelgesang, 23, is a senior political science student at Stale College of Arkansas at Conway. He has served in several political campaigns and worked in the 2nd District during the campaign of David Pryor for the Democratic gubernatorial nomination. LITTLE ROCK (AP) - Gov. Dale Bumpers said Tuesday he favored a suggestion that Arkansas hold presidential primaries to elect its delegates to national political conventions. "I think the people would prefer a primary," Bumpers said, noting that the people would like to have "a direct franchise" in the selection of presidential nominating delegates. He said, however, that there was less need for a presidential primary now than there was six to 10 years ago because, he said, the Democratic party had been doing a good job of selecting delegates who were repred sentative of the state. LITTLE ROCK (AP) - The state government collected and spent more than $1 million for the first time during the 1974 fiscal year, which ended June 30, according to figures in the state treasurer's office. The figures indicate that the state received $1,118,491,769 and spent $1,035,107,421 during the year. These figures include general and special revenues, federal aid, nonrevenue receipts and trust funds. They do not include the cash funds that state colleges and universities and a number of other agencies and institutions receive but do not channel through the state treasury. The cash funds probably exceeded $50 million last year. LEGAL NOTICE IN THE CHANCERY COURT OF HEMPSTEAD COUNTY, ARKANSAS SECOND DIVISION BANK OF CHIDESTER, PLAINTIFF VS. C. L.

LITTLE ROCK (AP) - An attorney for a group of inmates in a suit against the Pulaski County Penal Farm argued Tuesday that it was time to hold Pulaski County Judge B. Frank Mackey and Farm Supt. M. L. Cherry in contempt of court. Attorney Philip E. Kaplan ar^ gued in U.S. District Court that the two should be held in contempt for failing to obey court orders in the case. Mackey and Cherry "have gone through more contempt hearings and last-minute reprieves than in any case I know," Kaplan said. "The time has come where something has to be done to people who have evaded, skirted, overlooked and refused to obey this court's decrees... "Misdemeanants should have some indication that it works both ways, that law applies to the persons charged with enforcing the laws, too." Federal Judge J. Smith Henley agreed that it appeared the defendants had disobeyed the decree that closed the farm last Jan. 31 because of unconstitutional conditions there. He noted that it appeared that the county had used convict labor there after that date. Answering an after-the-fact request by the defendants to use legally convict labor Under certain limitations, the judge said, "I think there is, in light of the history of the case, a good deal of room of question as to whether any new plan of operation would be conducted in compliance with the court's decrees." Henley look under advisement the question of whether to hold Mackey and Cherry in contempt and whether to let the county use the farm on a limited basis. Deputy Pros. Atty. Tom Tanner of Pulaski County argued that Cherry and Mackey had not intentionally disobeyed the court's decree and, therefore, should not be held in contempt. But Henley said a lack of willfulness or intent may not be a defense in civil contempt. Mills speaking at fish fry ST, CHARLES, Ark. (AP) — Members of the state congressional delegation and other officials will attend a fish fry Friday night at the White River Wildlife Refuge headquarters. The fish fry is sponsored by the St. Charles-White River Bridge Association to emphasize the need for a bridge over the White River at St. Charles. Association president Elmer Ferguson of DeWitt snid that for the past two years, the state ferry had been closed more than half of the time Rep. Wilbur D. Mills, D-Ark., is to be the main speaker. Others invited are Gov. Dale Bumpers; David H. Pryor, the Democratic gubernatorial nominee; Henry Gray, state Highway director, and Southeast Arkansas officials. Chicago mayor's back in business CHICAGO (AP) - Mayor Richard J. Daley is back in business at the same old stand and gives every indication he'd like to be there for four more years. Daley, 73, returned to his fifth floor office in City Hall on Tuesday for the first time since he suffered a stroke on May 6. In the four months Daley has been convalescing at his summer home in Grand Beach, Mich., there has been specula- lion that poor health would force him from politics and the mayor's post he has held since 1955. But Daley, trimmer by 25 pounds, said if he had to decide now on an unprecedented sixth four-year term, the answer would be yes. Daley, the nation's top big city political leader for the past two decades, said there were no health problems standing in the way of his candidacy in next April's election. He said his family had left the decision on anolher lerm "entirely up to me." His gait to the lectern for his first news conference in four months was steady and his voice, although gravelly, was strong. The first question was, would he seek another term in the April mayoral election. "The doctors said I should try to work not as hard as I did in the past and then ascertain anything as far as the city of Chicago goes," Daley replied. Pressed further, Daley said, "The state of my chealth is good, but the mayor's job is an arduous job. I'll try it (a reduced schedulez and let you know." Seconds later, Daley was asked, "If you had to make a decision today, you would run, wouldn't you?" "You answered it," Daley responded with a laugh. Another hint that Daley would continue his political career was his characteristic pitch for his party's national convention in 1976. Surcharge passed on LITTLE ROCK (AP) - Carroll Electric Co-operative Corporation plans to put a proposed surcharge into effect on the next billing to its customers. Carroll Electric notified the Public Service Commission of that decision Tuesday. Carroll Electric and eight other members of the Arkansas Electric Cooperative Corp. have sought permission from the PSC to pass on to their customers a surcharge levied by Arkansas Electric Cooperative Corp., which supplies much of their power. After 120 days, the cooperatives may pass on the surcharge automatically, provided they guarantee refunds if the PSC later rejects part or all of the proposed surcharge. Omens seem to be on RhondaKay's side ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — The omens seemed to be on Khonda Kay Pope's side Tuesday night as she represented Arkansas in the annual Miss America parade along Board' walk. The ornens: a windy night much like one in 1963, two young admirers, a cheering section, a telegram and a narrow escape from a heavy downpour. "The wind was perfectly terrible," said Miss Arkansas' chaperone, Ann Peyton of West Memphis. "Donna Axum sat with me, and she said it was this bad the night she was in it." Donna Axum, a former Miss Arkansas, was chosen Miss America in 1963. Miss Peyton said Miss Arkansas "just looked beautiful even with the wind blowing as hard as it was in her apricot inatte jersey dress with a matching stole. "When the parade was about half through, it started raining," she added. "It just poured) but Rhonda was already through. She watched the rest of the parade on television." Miss Arkansas may have escaped the ram, but she didn't escape two young admirers. "Usually the police in Atlantic City keep everyone back on the Boardwalk so they can't get close to the cars," Miss Peyton said "but two little blond-headed boys — about 8 or 9 — ran up to the car and kissed Rhonda's hand and said, 'Oh, Miss Arkansas, we know you're going to be the next Miss America. We love you." 1 The green-eyed beauty, who is crazy about football in general and the Razorbacks in particular, had her own cheering section as she rode by the area reserved for chaperones and other state pageant officials. "Everyone in our section called the Hogs for Rhonda," Miss Peyton said. Miss Arkansas got a telegram Tuesday from Terri Dodson, last year's Miss Missouri. Miss Dodson, also from Hot Springs, wished Miss Arkansas luck, told her to remember to smile "and to give it all you have," Miss Peyton said. Today, Miss Arkansas is to be interviewed by the judges, and tonight she will compete in the evening gown category. She will be wearing a black matte jersey gown with spaghetti straps and a fitted bodice. The dress has a matching stole. Store Hours-9 AM TO 5:30 P.M. Village Sh opping Cen tcr Hope, A rk.
