Six cabinet members urge support for 6 American party may bring suit LITTLE ROCK (AP) — the American party In Arkansas may file lawsuit challenging the state law that requires the party to submit a designated number of voters' signatures to quality its candidates for placement on the general election ballot. Steve Bennett of North Little Rock, the party's counsel, said Saturday he probably would file a suit in U.S. District Court. He said it would take him about two weeks to prepare the brief on the lawsuit. The American party is required to get signatures totaling seven per cent of the votes cast in this year's gubernatorial race if it wants to field a candidate in 1976. The party had to cancel its effort to get on this year's ballot because of a lack of signatures. On another matter, party delegates Saturday approved resolutions opposing the proposed Amendments 54, 56 and 57 to the state Constitution. Amendment 54 would allow state agencies to do their own printing. Amendment 56 proposes a reorganization of coun- ty'government. Amendment 57 would give the legislature control over the ceiling on interest rates. watchit! STEVE MCQUEEN ANN-MARGRET ie toni&ht TELEVISION THREE KTBS SHREVEPORT LITTLE ROCK (AP) - Six members of outgoing Gov. Dale Bumpers' cabinet have asked voters to approve the proposed constitutional amendment that would allow state agencies to do their own printing. Proposed Amendment 54 would retain the competitive bidding requirement in the state Constitution for printing purchased by the state, but the measure deletes the reference to all printing materials obtained for use by the state. The cabinet members contended that approval of the measure would mean a financial savings for taxpayers. Richard R. Heath, director of the state Finance and Administration Department, said the six cabinet members represent- ed the view of the entire cabinet and Bumpers. Heath said at a news conference Saturday that the cabinet members feared the voters might reject the proposed amendment since it had no pressure group behind it. "It will aid no one but the taxpayer," he said. The department heads said the existing system not only costs too much but also is extremely cumbersome, often extending delivery time for printed materials to six months. Heath said printing contracts had been subject to more scandal than anything else in state government. Passage of proposed Amendment 54 would cure that, he said. Secretary of State Kelly Bryant, who handles the state printing contracts, has said he opposes the measure partially on the ground that it would put the state in competition with private industry. Heath said the proposed amendment provided for no such competition. The measure would let state agencies do as much of their own printing as possible and seek the lowest bids for work done commercially. Other department heads at the news conference were Charles Crow, director of the Planning Department; Gip I. Robertson Jr., representing the Highway Department; William E. Henderson, director of the Parks and Tourism Department; Dr. John A. Harrell Jr., director of the Health Department, and Lou Oberste Jrm, head of the Division of Tourism in the Parks and Tourism Department. AJ1 You Can Rule Cornelius van Bynker- shoek, a judge on Holland's highest court, ruled in 1703 that a coastal nation controlled as much of the seas as it could dominate from land. This came to mean one nautical league — about three miles — or the range of a cannon fired from shore. The "cannon-shot rule" became the established precedent for nations claiming territorial waters.
