(UP) —An estimated 400 Negro Insane Asylum patients escaped death today when fire destroyed an aged brick dormitory at Western state Hospital hert. The flames were brought under control shortly after noon and ns- si.slant superintendent w. L. Howard reported "all palicnts removed Irom the burning building all right. Thc fire was believed lo have starled from defective wiring In 1 ll'e attic of the dormlnlory, which wns valued at $350,000. Harlnn Thomas, hospital accountant, said the 400 palicnts In the building were removed within 20 minutes after Ihe fire was discovered. 'There wns no excilement among thc palicnls," he said, "because they did not know what it was about. No flames were visible until after all patients were removed." Thomas said the dormitory had been condemned, one of the oldest buildings at the asylum, it was more than half a century old. The first alarm was sounded 1 at mid-morning. Fire companies from Bolivar and Whlteville arrived loo Inte to save thc Uuilding, but managed to keep th c flames from spreading to other buildings in Ihc hVspital. Attendants led the patients to safety down stairs and fire escapes without incident, Thomas said, and housed them in another dormitory. No undue excitement was noted among thc other 3,000 patients in thc institution, Thomas said. All patients were reported under />n- trol. The lire was reported "practically burned out" at 12:20 p.m. and the danger of the flames spreading to two adjacent Negro dormllories apparently had passed. Assistant superintendent W. L. Howard said -the razed structure was condemned several months ago. "I told them two or three months ago that 'something ought to be done lor protection in case of fire." Howard said. "With some of these buildings as old as they arc. We have no fire truck and riot enough water to_fight n fire." . •Dr. David Galloway, hospital superintendent, was attending a medical society meeting in Knoxvlllc.

(UP) —A drug store clerk will post appearance bond in City Court today on a warrant sworn out by C. R.

Thc groceryman said he would force thc city to adhere strictly lo (he ordinance or repeal it and revealed nlans to swear out warrants against any others whom he believes arc violating the city ordinance. This action, he said, will "show thc absurdity" of the Sunday closing law, A Walgreen drug store clerk, identified only as a woman named Tiritt will post $51 appearance bond today in the case which Matthews has brought against her. Matthews claimed that he bought a pair of dice from her Sunday. Matthews was fined $51 In City Court yesterday for selling cnnned good Sunday after he had lost a direct appeal to thc city commissioners to repeal or amend thc ordinance. He announced he would appeal the fine. "I hate to prosecute people for a law which I thought wns wrong," Matthews told City Commissioner Joe Boyle, "but the only way know to get rid of a bad ordinance is to help enforce it. I plan to swear out warrants against every place that is* open on Sunday in violation of thc law." Frank Gianotti. assistant city attorney, said Matthews will plead "real necessity" in defense of his Sunday sales. Thc Sunday closing ordinance was enacted In Memphis 24 years ago. LITTLE ROCK.

'Ul'i—A special .session of the Arkansas legislature to consider a mileage tax on trucks and buses and a higher allocation of slate funds for county roads wa.s recommended to thu governor's highway advisory committee here today. Judge Cy Bond of Crltlcndcn County and chairman of the committee on county roads, asked Ihe adoption of two resolutions calling for tho :^:clnl session and outlining methods to be used by Ihc legislators In providing funds for county anil state roads, Thc first resolution asked legislation allocating to state highways nnd to county roads, on a 50-50 basis, all surplus road funds now available. Bond said there Is more than $2.000.000 in surplus gns lax money plus other'surpluses resulting ,from tile, stabilization act. His do'mnilKec t^sd called 'tor *K mileage tax bill on all truck and buses, n hill to let each county vote a privilege tax, a bill to allot each county more gasoline tax money, nnd the allocation ol more funds from (he stabilization bill to county roads. The resolution also asked legislation providing competent engineers—to be hired by thc Stntc Highway Department—lo assist In th e construction and maintenance of county roads. Abe Collins of DcQueen, chairman of the judiciary committee, asked fast action and suggested the quickest approach lo ji solution of the state's highway problem would he through nn Initialed act to bo voted in the November election. Hendrix Lackey, director of the Arkansas Resources and Development Commission, called for more equitable asscssmenl on all prop- '•erty in the state as Ihe best means of raising additional funds. Lackey said the assessed valuation of all iropcrly in Arkansas is $100.000,000 was in 1930. Chairman W. H. Sadler of Ihe Highway Commission asked for n longtime program to provide an overall network c£ highways throughout the state within 10 or 15 years. He urged the committee not lo net hastily.
