Page Ten HOPE (ARK.) STAH Tuesday, October 22, 1973 News Briefs LEGAL NOTICE FORT SMITH, Ark. (AP) Democrat Bill Clinton of Fayetteville, who is running for Congress from the 3rd District, voiced his opposition Monday to the administration's proposed sale of 2.2 million tons of U.S. grain to Russia. Citing the present price of food and grain in America, Clinton called the proposed deal "a great mistake." "I sure hope Congress can do something about it," Clinton said. Clinton faces Rep. John Paul Hammerschmidt, R-Ark., in the Nov. 5 general election. LITTLE ROCK (AP) - Telephone customers in 21 North Arkansas towns were without long distance service several hours Monday when a private contractor accidentally cut into part of an underground cable. The contractor destroyed a 10-foot section of underground cable about one-half mile south of Bradford (White County) on U.S. 67, a spokesman for Southwestern Bell Telephone Co. said. The towns temporarily out of service were Newport, Batesville, Tupelo, Augusta, McCrory, Grubbs, Oil Trough, Newark, Cave City, Pleasant Plains, Pleasant Grove, Concord, Primm, Fox, Timbo, Mountain View, Fifty-Six, Tuckerman, Swifton, Bradford and Jacksonport. LITTLE ROCK (AP) — Republican Judy Petty sent a telegram to President Ford Monday asking Ford if he supports the re-election bid of Rep. Wilbur D. Mills, her Democratic opponent in the Nov. 5 election. Mills is seeking a 19th term from the 2nd Congressional District. "At an appearance last Thursday in Little Rock, my opponent implied that you are supporting him in his bid for re-election," the telegram read. "I have received numerous inquiries from the press about this, and because Mr. Mills' statements have been open to question, I would apreciate your clarifying your position." Mrs. Petty said Mills cin- dicated that Ford felt he needed Mills' help to fight inflation. But, she said Mills has contributed to inflation and should not be counted on for a solution to it. PINE BLUFF, Ark. (AP) — John Harris Jones, the Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate, said Monday his Democratic opponent, Gov. Dale Bumpers, was distorting President Ford's economic policies. Bumpers has said he would oppose Ford's proposed five percent income tax surcharge unless it is accompanied by tax reform. He also has charged that much of the President's economic program would add to inflation rather than control it. Jones contended that Bumpers had latched onto the proposed surcharge as an issue, when there were other, more important, facets to the President's program that deserved praise. LITTLE ROCK (AP) — The Little Rock Police Department's monthly statistical report shows that reported crimes decreased slightly in September compared with August. Sgt.

KELLY BRYANT Secretary of State State of Arkansas Clinics successful Now is the time to have your children immunized against measles if they have not already received this protection, says Dolores McBride, County Extension Agent-Home Economics Leader. ' Many parents are surprised to learn how dangerous this common childhood disease really is. Even a mild case of measles can result in irregular eating habits, emotional disturbances, and poor general health for as long as a year after the illness. A severe case may lead to pneumonia, ear infection, or permanent brain damage. Measles can be fatal. Don't take unnecessary risks with your children's health, says Miss McBride. Protect them from measles and its complications by having them immuninzed. It is especially important that pre-school children receive measles immunization as they have the highest risk of infection. The old saying, "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure", can come true for your children if they are fully immunized against measles and other childhood diseases. For more information, call your County Health Department or see your doctor today.

Village RexallDrug Village Shopping Center Hammerschmidt defends voting record ROGERS, Ark. (AP) — Rep. John Paul Hammerschmidt, R- Ark., defended his voting record Monday night, then his Democratic opponent, Bill Clin- lon of Fayetteville, whittled away at it some more. Ai issue were Ham- merschmidls votes on water and sewer programs and benefits for coal miners. Hammerschmidt contended that despite allegations to the contrary he had voted for all of ihe major water and sewer pro- grams in Congress. I^aier, Clinton acknowledged thai this was true but said Hammerschmidt had, in effect, voted to allow certain water and sewer funds to be impounded. "The critical thing," Clinton said, "is when Mr. Nixon impounded the money, he (Hammerschmidt) voted to allow him to impound it; that is, when Congress passed legislation asking him (Nixon) to release the impounded money, Mr. Nixon vetoed it. Mr. Ham- merschmidl voted to uphold his veto; so, in the end, it comes to the same thing. "It's perfectly easy to vote for a bill when 75 or 80 or 85 per cent of the Congress is voting for it. But, when it really counts, is how far you will go to make sure that your constituents get it. And, what he did was to allow it to be impounded so that a lot of the projects that are now being and nounced conveniently right be- fore the election should have been here a year ago." On benefits for coal miners, Hammerschmidt said he had "voted for all the black lung benefits and worked very hard at seeing those benefits were processed promptly for black lung applicants." Clinton responded by saying it was true the Hammerschmidt had voted for the final passage of a bill giving benefits to miners suffering from the black from the black lung disease.
