Mary Jane Henley (standing) is chairman of the county immunization program. Immunization clinics set up Hempstead County Judge Finis Odom has proclaimed October as "Every Child In 74" immunization month. Judge Odom said that surveys by the State Health Department have shown that 403 of Hempstead county's children under five need immunizations against polio. Additional Hempstead county figures show 284 children under five needing vaccine against diphtheria, tetanus, and whooping cough. Five hundred and twenty of that same age group are not protected against measles and 539 against rubella. Judge Odom said that children represented Hempstead County's most precious natural resource and that every citizen should do all he could to protect his children. He urged parents to bring their children to the free immunization clinics being held at the following locations: Blevins Elementary School, Sunday, Oct. 20 from 2 to 5 p.m.; Ruth Applegate Center in McNab, Sunday, October 20 from 2 to 5 p.m.; old gymnasium at Washington, Ark., October 27 from 1 to 3 p.m.; Clow community center, October 27 from 3 to 5 p.m.; Hopewell school cafeteria at Hope, October 27 from 2 to 5 p.m. Alaska marijuana cage under study Rummage The I,eo Club, a youth civic club sponsored by the Hope Lions Club, will have a rummage sale Saturday, from 1 to 5 p.m. The sale will be held at the former location of Walker's Used Furniture between American Jeans and Greening- Ellis on Main Street.

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — The Alaska Supreme Court has taken under advisement a case challenging the constitutionality of marijuana laws in what could become a landmark case in the United States. Lawyers for defendant Irwin Ravin, an Anchorage attorney, argued Wednesday that 30,000 Alaskans have used or possessed marijuana at least once. The lawyers also cited statistics from the 1973 National Commission on Marijuana and Drug Abuse which determined that almost 26 million Americans have tried marijuana at least once. Ravin was arrested on a marijuana possession charge after being searched by police when he refused to sign a traffic ticket in December 1972. I^st November, U.S. District Court Judge Dorothy Tyner denied a motion to dismiss Ravin's case on grounds of unconstitutionality. A Superior Court upheld Tyner's decision. Hoiiduran cabinet resigns SAN PEDRO SULA, Honduras (AP) — Reliable sources today said the Honduran cabinet has submitted resignations to President Oswaldo Lopez Arellano following charges the government mishandled relief efforts after Hurricane Fifi. There was no immediate confirmation of the reports from the capital, Tegucigalpa. Gen. Lopez Arellano has been in power for eight years and has never before dismissed his close associates. The sources here said Foreign Minister Cessar Batres was first to submit his resignation, followed by the ministers of economy, finance, labor and economic planning. Foreign relief specialists have charged that Lopez Arellano's military regime failed to adequately distribute relief supplies sent to Honduras for victims of the hurricane that ravaged Honduras' northeastern coast last month. As many as 10,000 were reported killed, and SO per cent of the country's productive capacity was destroyed by the storm and its aftermath. In Ravin's appeal, the state Supreme Court will consider these questions: —Does restriction of marijuana use in private violate U.S. and state constitutional guarantees of liberty? —Do the restrictions violate an individual's right to privacy? —Is it irrational to classify marijuana with other, more dangerous drugs? —Does the legality of alcohol and the illegality of marijuana deny those who wish to smoke marijuana due process of law? Ravin's lawyers say the burden of proof lies with the government to show there is a "compelling public interest" in prohibiting use of the drug. Arguing for the state, Steve Dunning, an assistant district attorney, described privacy as probably the "most amorphous of all rights ... this is a right which conceivably could swallow an enormous area of legislative power. "I am not conceding this court must be convinced by the evidence," Dunning said. "If the quantum evidence (for legalization) is sufficient, I think the court should defer to the legislature." The state high court has six months to render a decision on the challenge.

OBITUARIES Funeral services for Mrs. Lizzie Scroggins, who passed away in a Texarkana Hospital, October 13,1974, will be held at Church of God In Christ, Nashville, Arkansas, Saturday, October 19 at 3 p.m. Funeral service for Mr. Neal Coleman who passed away in a Jackson policy (Continued from Front Page) A resolution adopted Wednesday by the association said the . 'nation's natural gas shortage • this winter may approximate 800 billion cubic feet and that the situation dictates a need for the deregulation of wellhead prices of gas entering interstate commerce. "The wellhead price of natural gas is a key factor in the decision to drill for new reserves," the resolution said. "It is the American consumer who is the ultimate loser when federal price controls cause shortages of natural gas." The association also called for retention of oil's 22 per cent depletion tax allowance and the elimination of price controls on crude oil and petroleum products. The Texans charged that some members of Congress and of the Ford administration are attempting to divide the industry by offering political alternatives to the tax allowance. The House Ways and Means Committee has proposed that the allowance mat was cut from 27V& per cent to 22 per cent in 1969 be phased out over a three-year period. "Phasing out of the percentage depletion provision in federal income tax laws will stifle the activities of all producers," the resolution said. It added that the industry's position has been weakened by reports of offers of such political alternatives as tying aboli- Prescott Hospital, Oct. 14, will be held Saturday, October ift f 1974, at 1:00 p.m. at the Mt.

Henry Wilkins HI of Pine Bluff had asked whether the commission had the authority to donate $12,000 to improve breeding grounds in Canada and waterfowl. The commission had aproved the donation in its August meeting. the allowance for some segments of the industry while denying it to others. All members of the Texas petroleum industry were urged to remain united on a policy of maintaining the current percentage depletion rate. Natural gas, crude oil, and petroleum products currently are the only commodities subject to federal price controls. The resolution said the $5.25 per barrel freeze on oil from old wells, or about two-thirds of the state's crude production, is forcing Texas to subsidize the energy needs of much of the nation. The oilmen also called for enactment of a Texas unitization statute and rejection of any proposal to enact a state petroleum products manufacturing tax. Operating all interests in an oil or gas field as a single unit currently is permissible in Texas but is not compulsory. CONSTITUTIONAL CHANGES Editor the Star: I certainly hope that the people of Arkansas will have more foresight than to vote an amendment to our constitution that will allow an increase in the rate of interest that we can be charged by our lending institutions. The rate of 10 per cent that we presently pay is enough. Please let us not fan the fires of inflation even more. We must hold the line. Secondly, there are other amendments to our constitution proposed, such as^ allowing certain elected officials to draw a larger salary than the present $5,000.00 annually now allowed by our present constitution. I will admit that they do need a larger salary in many cases. However, why.should we do ; things in a piece meal way. There' are' many other areas where our old outdated constitution is not serving the best interest of the taxpayer of Arkansas. We desperately need an updated, more responsive form of county government. Again, a piecemeal amendment won't do the job properly. It is almost imperative that our whole system of personal and property tax laws be revised. They are presently serving the special interests groups much more than the average citizen of Arkansas. It is just not fair. Sir, it is my belief that we, the people of Arkansas, will be much better off if we pull out the new constitution that was proposed by a recent constitutional convention and let those who would amend the old one, go to work on selling it to the people, for the benefit of all, rather than promote special interest amendments. Sincerely yours, EDWIN L. HOLSTEAD Sept. 14, 1974 Kiwanian Bill Butler, president; and John Henley, sectary-manager of the Hope Hempstead County Chamber of Commerce appeared before the Kiwanis Club at their Tuesday meeting at Town and Country Restaurant. They were introduced by Roy Taylor, program chairman for October. Butler and Henley recently attended a meeting in Little Rock where a program orP promotion was instituted ex- trolling the virtues of Arkansas living. The program titled, "Stand up for YOUR Arkansas" is not complete at this time but much work has gone into it. If enouch Arkansas people get behind this program, it certainly cannot hurt the state and could go a long way toward making Arkansas a better place in which to live and do business. It is a program that urges Arkansans to be proud of themselves and what they have, to stand up for Arkansas, and to appreciate the state. No economy is more diversified than Arkansas'. The various forms of agri-business, the industrial and manufacturing expansions, the retail business community, and the availability of willing workers to man the various enterprises are unmatched in this country of ours. Butler stated that tne Chamber of Commerce, in December of 1973, was in dire financial straits, or broke, if you please. But due to some hard work by the members of the board of directors, dedicated service by the office personnel, a revised schedule of membership fees, and a willingness on the part of industry and business to cooperate in joining the C of C, the organization is now solvent, is not in debt, and is a going concern. Guests at Tuesday's meeting were Dennis Ramsey and Key Clubbers, Tom Flores and Tim Boyd. 1 - . '.-•(' i ,v '-.1 .\ / : ..
