April 9. (.(]>, — The. Arkansas Legislature convened in Us special session at 12 noon (oilay. By HARI.EY I'KHSHINO Liri'LIv ROCK, Ark., April 9. (AP)—Gov. Sid Mc- Matli today fulled OH members of the Arkansas Legislature to lay aside their political differences and do something for the slate's public schools. The governor made his plea before a joint meeting of the House and Senate al the first special session of the Arkansas Legislature in nearly 12 years. McMath said the problem facing this special session is whether Ihere will he new taxes or sub- marginal education in Arkansas. "Almost any kind of new tax is more to be desired," said McMulh. As expected, the governor did not specify any new tax measures he thought should be adopted to provide revenue for his proposed 12- point legislative program. He used this program to call the lawmakers ^iack into special session a month ^fter they had adjourned Iheir regular 60-day biennial session. Mailer "Cnusidemt" Ihe matter of a special session "long and prayerful consideration." He said he had received requests (roin a majority of the legislators (hat a special session be called :o provide money for Ihe public school-,, many of which arc closing s:iort of nine-month terms because thev are broke. ill a brief, but terse address, McMath sud: "The financial condition o f o u r schools is so serious and the consequences of our failure to act so far reaching that 1 have been impelled to call this special session." The governor reviewed what IK termed remarkable improvement >n education In Arkansas during the pasl six years. He said more leach- ers had been provided, transnor- lalion increased, educational training of teachers raised and the number of school districts hud been reduced. .More Money Needed But, he added, these advancements will not continue unless more money is provided tor the schools. "We all recognize." said McMath, h "that local communities have not V been supporting the . schools as mueN.as tricy should.- Thc .- ?i>i} assessment figures show a decrease of 59,000,000 under state assessments for the previous year. "This decrease in assessments is one reason why local efforts cannot absorb immediately the decrease in state funds which the .schools now face. "It is my earnest hope that during the next two years the people of Arkansas will carry out a comprehensive program of bringing order and effectiveness to our local tax system." Oulion Issued The governor also cautioned that "unless we find revenue" hundreds of the state's trained teachers will leave Arkansas for better jobs this year. "Many of us have political ditler- ences." said McMath. "but the education of our boys and girls in Ihis slate is paramount to all political considerations." ' Malrern School Needs $40,000 MALVERN'. Ark.. April 3. (/J Whether Malvern public schools reopen any time soon still is a question of 3-10,000. The schools were closed last u-eck short of a full nine-month term because of a money shortage. An industrial committee, made np of various Malvcru civic organi/a- lioii presidents, was to meet this m-rning to study what headway il has made in raising the through local subscription. >ly—its work unfinished in Goi'- Ji-nor McMath's opinion—goes back 01) the Job today. The governor called thc Legislature, which ended Us regular CO day session March 8. Into suecia. session in an attempt to get more money for the public schools and colleges. Rome schools have beei forced to close early this year be cause of funds shortages. Although the Legislature approv cd an Increased" budget for the cdu cation in |he regular session, ministration and school officials say (hat revenue lo finance the bud;ct was not made available. The budget authorized the school to spend SG3,OCII),000 in the next two years. Slate officials have said that only 543.000,009 (n revenue can be provided under existing tax laws. McMath h;is said that thc schools need an additional S12.000.000 a year. Possible source of this money is an increase in the state sales tax from two to three cents on the dollar. The state collects about S24.000.- 000 a year on'the present two per cent tax. Oilier Funds Asked The governor also has risked for additions! appropriations', frqm the special session. Some we're considered In the regular session; some are new. At Icist two are expected to bring about a battle in both houses. They arc McMath's request lor rest-oration of his emergency fund and money to set up a civil defense agency. Both ol these proposals were rejected by the legislators earlier this year.

M>, Speaker Rnybnvn salt! todav "we are in terrible danger" because (he Russians are building up concentrations "here and (here and everywhere." Rayburn, Texas Democrat, told White House reporters following a conference with President Truman, that Russians are building up troop corn-durations "in lots of places. lie added: "Just where this j.s being done is a little beyond my field, but I have it on good authority, the best authority." Last week. Rayburii came out of White House conference and .said not all the troops gathering in Manchuria were Chinese Communists. Rayburn also said then that the United States was threatened o.\ "a terrible danger" which might bring on another world war. Last week's statements were made on the House floor as it began rie bate on the controversial draft Universal Military Training bill.

MacArthnr WASHINGTON, April n. (AP)—President Truman talked today with Democratic congressional leaders about the hot potato bunded him by Cien. Douglas MacArthur's latest policy statement, nut they anil the while House itself were silent on what action, If any, may be taken, WASHINGTON, April 9. .AP>-Prcsi ( lenl Truman was caught today in a sducezc between home front surmorlers of Gen. Douglas MacArllmr mostly ttcpublicans, and U. s, Allies who want him to discipline thc outspoken general for his latest policy statement. Capitol Hill friends thought that* after a week-end of studying the situation. Mr. Truman might act quickly to make known his views on recent MncArthur statements which have run counter to military anil Ktate Department policies. It was certain that any move to shear MacArthur of any authority as supreme commander in Korea would touch off a storm In Con- RITSS. Most lawmakers carefully avoided predicting the course of Mr Truman's action, although, some'spec- ulated privately that a presidential reprimand to the five-star general would be fcrlhcoming. Senator KnoivJnnd (R-Callf), a persistent critic of administration foreign policy i« the Pacific, foresaw even more drastic action. "H now appears that the hntcliel men of the admlni.slrntion have been turned loose to undermine UK: position of General Mac-Arthur and to force a reprimand or recall " he said.
