Judge sets deadline in U of A bias suit LITTLE ROCK (AP) - A federal judge has given both parties in a white woman's discrimination suit against the University of Arkansas Law School until Friday to file briefs in the case. Frances Henson of Little Rock alleges that her rights were violated because the school refused her admission while it accepted minority applicants. Under a compromise plan worked out by Judge J. Smith Henley of U.S. District Court Saturday, Mrs. Henson will be allowed to audit classes on a temporary basis. Henley chose not to issue a temporary restraining order against the university. Until Henley reaches a final decision in the case, the university will allow Mrs. Henson to observe law school classes without paying tuition. Classes already have begun. Mrs. Henson alleged in the suit that the school had a policy of giving preference to minority males even if their qualifications were lower than other candidates. She testified that she was denied admission even though her undergraduate grades and her law school admission test scores were higher than minority males admitted. Steven Clark, the school's director of admissions, testified that five blacks with scores lower than Mrs. Henson's were admitted to the school's Little Rock division. However, school officials testified that Mrs. Henson was not a victim of a discriminatory policy and probably would not have been admitted even if minority applicants with lower qualifications had been rejected. Clark testified that the university has three classifications for selecting law students. The first category is based on the combined ranking of the student's undergraduate grade- point average and law school test scores. The second is for persons with low scores who would be considered by an admissions committee on an individual basis. A third category is for minority applicants who do not qualify under the first two categories. Under the third category, university officials said the students would be admitted if the committee believed there was a reasonable likelihood that the students would succeed in law school. Clark testified that Mrs. Henson was in the second category because her grades and test scores were not high enough to gain automatic admission. John Harmon, the attorney for Mrs. Henson, asked Clark if Mrs. Henson would have been admitted if the blacks with lower scores had not been. Clark replied that he did not believe she would have been because other Applicants in the dis- cretifctiary group, who also had been rejected, had higher scores than Mrs. Henson. Simon disagrees with depression statement HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (AP) Treasury Secretary William E. Simon predicted Saturday that the inflation rate would continue at about 9 per cent for the remainder of the year. He disagreed with a statement by Senate Majority leader Mike Mansfield of Montana who predicted Friday night that the nation was headed for another depression. "People who relate this present period to the one in 1929 and '30 are mistaken," Simon said. "The fundamentals are entirely different and we have many regulatory procedures today that would prevent that." Simon referred to the present economic woes of the country as a "business slowdown." He said that the National Bureau of Economic Research, a non- government agency, had not even labled the current situation as a recession. The present inflation rate was caused partly by 'excessive fiscal and monetary policies over the past 10 years, where the money stock grew in excess of 6 per cent and federal expenditures grew at an annual rate of 10 per cent." Simon said. He said that everyone from the federal government on down would have to exercise restraint. 'This is going to have to be a team effort on the part of all of us," he added. Simon was in Hot Springs to meet Rep. Wilbur D. Mills, D- Ark., who was attending the Democratic State Convention. The two then flew back to Washington together in Simon's airplane. Simon said he had been trying unsuccessfully for more than a month to arrange a meeting with Mills. Both men were asked about the political significance of their meeting, in light of Mills current re-election campaign. "I don't want to discuss the campaigm because I am more concerned about trying to get this situation turned around in the economy," said Mills. "It's of little consequence what happens to the individual. It's of greater consequence what happens to all ot us and if government can do something." Simon said he would discuss with Mills the upcoming economic summit sessions planned by the Ford administration and how economic policy relates to tax policy. Mills is chairman of the tax-writing House Ways and Means Committee. Mills and Simon both said they were opposed to wage and price controls. Mills said the $305 billion budget proposed in January could swell to $312 billion because of inflation and he said he shared Ford's hope that it could be trimmed to below the $300 billion mark. Mills predicts approval of tax packa LITTLE UOCK(AP) -Rep. Wilbur D. Mills, D-Ark., says his support in Arkansas has not been eroded greatly by revelations that some illegal contributions may have been made to his 1972 presidential campaign. Mills also predicted in an interview published in the Arkansas Gazette Sunday that the House would approve a tax package, including a proposal calling for an end to the oil' depletion allowance, by the first week of October. Mills, chairman of the tax- writing Ways and Means Committee, predicted that the Senate would approve the package after the general election. Of his unsuccessful presidential campaign, Mills said he thought the people knew that any illegal contributions had gone to a draft movement that preceded his formal candidacy. Mills contended that it was impossible for a recipient of a campaign contribution to know the money is from a corporation rather thai) from the person making the transaction. Corporate donations to federal campaigns are illegal. Mills said "nobody connected with the draft Mills movement took the Fifth Amendment" during the Senate Watergate Committee investigation of campaign contributions. The report of that investigation said Associated Milk Producers, Inc., had given $15,000 to the campaign, while Minnesota Mining & Manufacturing Co. had given $1,000 and Gulf Oil had donated $15,000. Mills wrote a $15,000 check to Gulf when it asked to be paid back and a $1,000 check to 3-M. The Watergate investigators said most of the $90,000 in corporate funds from AMPi and MidAmerica Dairymen went to finance a 1971 Iowa rally at which Mills spoke. The report said Mills had personally solicited the invitation to appear at the rally, but Mills denied this in the interview. Mills, who is seeking re-election, is opposed by Republican Judy Petty of Little Rock. Mills has been criticized by some because tax revenues from the individual taxpayer far exceed the revenues from corporations and because the Social Security tax has experienced a sharp increase. Mills attributed the shift of more of the tax burden to the individual taxpayer to the "rising level of wages and salaries that get people into higher brackets of income." Nevertheless, the income tax fates for individuals have declined, he said. Under this year's tax reform package, 500,000 to 600,000 per^ sons would be removed from the tax rolls completely, he said. Mills suggested that the national health insurance plan the Ways and Means Committee is studying would shift some of the tax burden back to the corporations. No plan will be approved this year, he said, be- cause the committee has not' been able to reach a compromise. Mills said he views the Social Security deduction from wages as a type of insurance father than a regressive tax. MOttE TOURISTS TO NEW ZEALAND WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) — Tourism is expected to be worth 100 million NZ dollars ($150 million U.S.) a year to New Zealand by March next year, according to government estimates. Official figures show that tourism earnings reached al* most 78.5 million NZ dollars ($117.7 million U.S.) last year, an increase of 21 million NZ dollars ($31.5 million U.S.) or 36.7 per cent in 12 months.
