Cotton crop falls short LITTLE ROCK (AP) largely because of unfavorable weather conditions, the outlook for the cotton crop in Arkansas this year is not as good as last year. The total value of the 1973 cotton crop — lint and seed — on one million acres was |211 million. This year in Arkansas, there are 325,00 more acres planted in cotton, but the value of the crop may be about the same. Boll development was retarded by heavy rain in August. The rain also nurtured leaves at the same time farmers were trying to defoliate. Defoliation of plants is necessary because the cotton bolls develop better with fewer leaves in their way. Also, the leaves ae obstructions to mechanical pickers.

Bill Carlisle of the Agricultural Marketing Service said his agency has classified fewer than 300 bales of Arkansas cotton this year compared with more than 16,000 at this time last year. Many farmers have had repeated applications of expensive insecticides washed off their crops, which means they lost both the chemicals and insect-infested cotton.

(AP) - The state of Texas wilt cbllect |230> 000 in penalties from the nation's largest milk cooperative and has gained a comprehensive injunction in an out- of-court settlement of a suit alleging restraint of free trade. Associated Milk Producers, Inc., however, did not admit any past wrongdoing in agreeing to pay the money. In yet another move to dispense with myriad litigation against it, the scandal-tainted co-op submitted itself to the injunction only three months after the Texas attorney general's consumer protection division brought stilt in state district court. District Court Judge Tom Blackwell signed the agreed judgment which, besides the penalties, permanently restrained the 41,000-member, San Antonio-based AMPI from the following in Texas: -Illegally "loading the pool" by using federal orders to flood a market with milk and depressing the price paid to dairy farmers. i—Forcing milk haulers to carry only AMPI milk from the dairy farm to the processing plant or from acquiring control of milk haulers who formerly carried non-AMPI milk, unless the haulers would continue to carry non-AMPI milk. —Entering contracts to supply milk from its farmers to processors for more than one year at a time. —Accepting rebates from processors. —Using its influence in an area where its farmers members are predominant to require milk processors to buy AMPI milk In other areas where AMPI has competitors— in other words, foreclosing the market. —Discriminating against any processor who buys non-AMPI raw milk. —Threatening AMPI members who want to quit of using undue influence on non-AMPI members to join the coop, which has a majority of the milk producers in Texas in its membership. "1 felt that we were obtaining everything we could reasonably hope to obtain in a trial," said Any. Gen. John Hill after a court session Tuesday in which he read the 11-page settlement, llemeiit. The specifics in the injunction conformed with antitrust violations the state alleged In Its original pleadings in the suit. "i don't know ot a base we haven't covered, lit It, m Ity to se« thb operation continues as w? believe now it is operating in a legal manner," said Hill. The order provides for annual review for the next 10 years. AMPI attorney Sidney Harris of Washington, D.C., noted in court ahat "AMPI does not agree nor admit that the attorney general could have proved violations. AMPI does want to continue in business." The co-op, which also has reached agreement in a proposed settlement of the federal government's antitrust suit against it, wants to "get its litigation behind it and to go forward in an entirely legitimate manner," said Harris. Weems disbarment upheld LITTLE ROCK (AP) Pros. Atty. Sam Weems of Des Arc committed serious and intentional violations of the professional conduct code for lawyers, the Supreme Court Committee on Professional Conduct said Tuesday. The committee, in a brief filed with the Arkansas Supreme Court, said the violations were not merely technical and that they warranted permanent disbarment. Weems has said his commingling of clients' funds with his own, rather than putting them in separate trust accounts as the code requires, was a technical violation that did not warrant such a severe penalty as permanent disbarment. There was no evidence of intent to defraud his clients or that he benefited in any way, Weems said. Weems was disbarred by Judge Harrell Simpson of Pocahontas, who was appointed as a special judge to hear the case. The Supreme Court later refused to-> stay Simpson's disbarment order, pending Weems' appeal, but it said Weems could continue as prosecutor in the 17th Judicial District. State law does not require prosecutors to be licensed by the Arkansas bar. The committee said Tuesday that Weems' argument about the violations being technical was "a nice way of saying that there should not be any disciplinary rule...." The committee added, "The entire rule Is technical. It was meant to be technical. The rule says to keep your client's money separate from your own. It says, Don't buy groceries and clothes with your clients money.'....In short, any violation of the rule is technical and any violation thereof is ground for disbarment. Certainly, repeated violations ere grounds for disbarment." adopts pay hik^plan LITTLE ROCK (AP) - the Mule Rock Board Of Directors adopted a new pay plan Tufes- tlay night that will give all 1,250 city employes pay raises averaging 12.1 per cent beginning Oct. 28. The increase Will add f 1,218,* 984 to the city's annual payroll of $11 million and will be financed from federal revenue sharing funds and unspent operational funds from the 1974 budget. tiler Tuesday night, about 100 members of IjxeA 34 of the International .Association of Firefighters ended their own meeting with the traditional thumbs-down gesture of disapproval. "The men were very upset and displeased.," said Capt. John Uekman, president of Local 34, "We are real dissatisfied with the raises we did gel." Uekman said the firefighters did not take any formal action at the meeting other than to show unanimous displeasure with the board's action. "We are setting up committees to study further action," Uekman said. "Past this, I just don't know." Asked if the committees included a strike committee or if the possibility of a strike was discussed, Uekman replied, "No comment." The new pay plan did not include any provision for granting firemen equal pay with po- liccmch, as the firemen have demanded. The plan gives greater percentage increases to employes with lower salaries. BANKAMERICMH The Stag Put Together is right on! A contempo look that swings. ..
