Friday, September 21* 18f4 IIOPK (ARK.) STAR f*ag,e Drug Authority will ask for more money UTTLE ROCK (AP)— The Arkansas Drug Abuse Authority plans to ask the state legisla* lure for more than $600,000 hefct year as part of its budget re* quest for an expanded program for ihe next two years. The budget request for the 1975-77 bienniurn was approved by the agency's board Thursday. The $600,000 figure is more than $500,000 above what the state jjives the agency how< Miles Waldron, the agency's coordinator, conceded that it would take some groundwork by local' groups that have been funded and that are concerned about drug abuse and a good presentation before the legi«la* lure's Joint Budget Committee to ^ain approval of the request. If the request is granted, Waldron said, the money will fund the program at only 75 per cent of the heed. He said the needs included preparation for a possible health problem arising from the increasing use of mari* juana. "The information that's come to our attention shows that there's an overwhelming strong possibility that even the ex- perirnehtation with marijuana over several years is going to give us problems that we hadn't anticipated,'* he told the board members. Waldron read from a newsletter that quoted recent testimony of scientists before the United Slates Senate Subcommittee on Internal Security. Tax complexities may hold up Senate action HOW DO YOU PRODUCE A MURAL with street kids who think of art as something locked up in museums? The City Arts Workshop, on New York's lower East Side, began with a core of children local artists, and a landlord who donated the space on his building. Once the work begins, everyone pitches in. At one point, as many as 50 children were working on this mural, "Wall of Respect for Women." TOMIE ARAI, 25, a City Arts project director, ex* plains that young neighborhood artists have already completed 21 murals in the area.

Panel acts to curb Nixon expenses WASHINGTON (AP) --A Senate Appropriations subcommittee has acted to ensure that former President Richard M. Nixon is not provided household servants at government expense. The panel, headed by Sen. Joseph M. Montoya, D-N.M., voted on Thursday to allow only $328,000 of the $850,000 the Ford administration had asked for transitional expenses for Nixon. In approving the appropriation, the subcommittee wrote in a requirement that any federal employe working for Nixon must be doing a job directly involved in his transition to private life. Montoya said he was alarmed to learn that Nixon's long-time valet, Manolo Sanchez, and Mrs. Sanchez, a maid, are working at the former president's San Clemente, Calif., home even though they are being paid a total of $20,000 a year by the National Park Service. The legislation apparently also would take away Nixon's three chauffeurs, who are on the Defense Department payroll. If the Montoya proposal becomes law, it would mean that any federal employe working for Nixon would have to be directly involved in winding up the former president's government affairs. After Feb. 9,1975, six months after Nixon left office, no federal employe could work for the former president. Until that six months expires, Nixon apparently still would be allowed to use government em- ployes, such as former White House Press Secretary Ronald I- Ziegler, to make the transition to private life. The $328,000 voted by the Senate subcommittee is $70,000 below the amount allowed by the House Appropriations Committee. The total includes $55,000 as the first 11 months' share of the former president's pension; and ?40,ooo to pay a staff for the next five months. After hearing testimony that the government already has a full inventory of office equipment at San Clemente, the panel eliminated the $50,000 asked for new equipment for Nixon's offices. Plant will shutdown ENGLAND, Ark. (AP) - The Phil - Maid Manufacturing Corps, women's lingerie plant here is in the process of closing. The shutdown will leave" about 100 persons jobless and will deprive the area of a yearly payroll of more than $.5 million. Plant manager Tom Moore says the plant is closing because, while the facility was designed for 250 workers, the company could not find anywhere near that many workers who met the company's production quotas. State Rep. Bill Foster of England says there are qualified workers in the England area, but more than 200 of them work outside of England, possibly because they receive higher pay. Joe Dildy of the Arkansas Industrial Development Commission said his office is working with the company to find anoth-, er firm to occupy the 50,000 square, foot building on 20 acres of land. "We're going to do everything we can to find an industry to take up the displaced people," Dildy said. Emmet F. Byrne CHICAGO (AP) —Emmet F. Byrne, 77, a Republican U.S« representative from Chicago from 1956 to 1958, died on Wednesday.

Coming before the legislature's Interim Committee on State Agencies and Governmental Affairs are proposals by state Reps. Paid Van Dalsem of Perryville and Bill Randall of Hot Springs. Van Dalsem's proposal won the endorsement of a subcommittee of the interim committee Thursday. That proposal is aimed at reforming primary election filing fees by having an optional $1 checkoff on state income tax returns. Van Dalsem would have the state match dollar-for-dollar the amount collected. The money would be distributed to the counties via turnback funds and would be used to help finance party primaries. The counties would estimate the cost of each primary and anything not covered.,by,Jhe collected amount would be assessed individual candidates in the form of filing fees. Van Dalsem's proposal won approval over a suggestion by Randall that would keep filing fees but lower them and allow an alternative petition method of getting on the ballot. The filing fee subcomittee is Dl DRIVE MOVIES wrestling with ways to make Arkansas filing fees more equitable because of federal court decisions which have knocked down similar fees in some slates as being exorbitant. Randall's proposal, which goes to the full committee in Ihe form of a minority report, basically calls for the cost of the election to be absorbed by the county election commission. Part of the fees collected would go to the party and part to the state. The county would be reimbursed for the cost through state turnbacks, which would be increased enough to pay for the election. Randall's alternative method for getting on the ballot would be for a candidate to collect signatures on a petition equal to 2 per cent of the votes cast for governor in the last election. The maximum number required would be 1,000. Van Dalsem argued that it would be too easy for persons to get on the ballot without having to pay anything. He said the number of signatures required should be about 20 per cent. Primaries currently are paid for by the individual parties, which get their money through the filing fees paid by candid dates. WASHINGTON (AP)'- The complexity of Nelson A. Rock* efeller's tax returns seems likej ly to delay Senate action on his vice presidential nomination until after the Nbvembef elec* lions, informed sources said today. The sources said that audits of Rockefeller's taxes being prepared for the Senate Rules Committee, which ended its public hearings on Thursday, won't be ready until at least the third week in October. That was the estimate earlier in the week by Chairman Peter W. Rodino Jr., D-N.J., whose House Judiciary Committee won't even start its hearings until after the elections. However, Chairman Howard W. Cannon, D-Nev., of the Senate panel had been hopeful the material being prepared by the Internal Revenue Service for ihe Joint Committee on Internal Revenue Taxation, would be ready next week. Both nouses are scheduled to quit work for the month-long election recess in two weeks, so the delay would assure that neither could finish Rockefeller's confirmation by them. Cannon said at the close of public hearings on Thursday that the panel won't be able to decide until after it gets the tax audits whether it will have to recall Rockefeller for further questioning. The Thursday hearing produced anti-Rockefeller testimony from conservatives and critics of Rockefeller's approval of liberalized abortion legis- lation. two blacks hailed the former Mew York governor's civil rights record, and two dther witnesses urged his approval because he favored the liber- alised abortion proposal, Republican committee members occasionally introduced material to counter criticism of Rockefeller's handling of the 1971 Attica prison uprising, in which 43 persons lost their lives. The biggest name of the Rockefeller critics was black activist Angela Y. Davis, who testified in behalf of the Nation' al Alliance Against Racism and Political Repression. She said Rockefeller should be rejected because he permitted "state police and prison guards to stage one of the most wanton massacres in the history of the United States" at Attica. On the abortion issue, which Rockefeller had called the most controversial he had faced in his 15 years as governor, he was defended by New York State Republican Assemblywoman Constance Cook and Carol Burris of the Women's Lobby Inc., and denounced by Edward J. Golden and Notre Dame Law Prof. Charles E. Rice, representing two so-called "Right-to-Life" groups. Conservative criticism of Rockefeller came from Curtis Dall, board chairman of Liberty Lobby, and from Rev. Kenneth E. Lee, president of the Washington Christian Action Council. Winter comes to Rockies Senate delays on time bill WASHINGTON (AP) - Senate action on a bill to restore standard time from November through February has been postponed until next week. The' < "postponement' : 'Was agreed to on Thursday after controversy arose over a non- germane amendment to eliminate discriminatory state taxes on wines. That amendment, introduced by Sen. John Tunney, D-Calif., would prevent states from levying more taxes on wines produced outside a state than on EXCLUSIVE ENGAGEMENT those produced inside it. The Senate refused, 43 to 39, to table it, and Sen. John L. McClellan, D-Ark., began a filibuster against it t Consideration of the daylight saving time" measure then was put off until next Tuesday or Wednesday.
