The man, who was not identified, was spending his first day at home today. It is the first time that an animal-to-man transplant has been carried out in Britain. The man, who suffered a coronary, would have died without the transplant, doctors said. Alfred Gunning, 47, a consulting surgeon at the Radcliffe Infirmary, Oxford, transplanted the aortic valve from a sow's heart into the patient three weeks ago during an operation that lasted four to five hours. Gunning said the patient had a good chance of returning to normal health. FORREST CITY, Ark. (AP) —The State Advisory Committee to the U. S.

To Wit: —The Highway Commission pushed ahead with its investigation of the Highway Department, firing Chief of General Services J. G. Meredith. —Meredith, claiming the commission's attitude was one of harassment, called for an investigation of the commission. —The Legislative Audit Committee was told it couldn't investigate everjihiing in the department, including salary increases, but decided to, anyway. —The Legislative Council got a recommendation for a top-to- bottom probe of the Highway Department and Highway Commission. Back of it all were the $2.1 million in unauthorized salary increases in the Highway Department. These were the unannounced increases which called illegal by have Gov. been Orval Daily Record Weather Yesterdny's high—73 Overnight low—64 Precipitation previous 24 hours (to 7 a.m. today)—none Precipitation Jan. 1 to date—13.36 Sunset today—6:38 Sunrise tomorrow'—5:18 This Bate A Year Ago Yesterday's high—91 Overnight low—56 Precipitation Jan. 1 to date—17.S3 FAIRFIELD, Conn.

Jim Raney. * * * Raney asked the Audit Committee for a full-scale investigation of the affair. Cockrill asked Atty. Gen. Bruce Bennett if the committee could probe policies and management of the department. Bennett ruled that the committee, if it investigated, would have to limit its look to fiscal matters—which, Bennett said, does not include salary in- Negro Deaths Jack R. Graham Services for Jack Roosevelt Graham, 58, will be tomorrow at 12:30 p.m. at the First Baptist Church on Cleveland St., with the Rev. T. J. Greene officiating. Burial will be in Ml.

(Webster's difines fiscal affairs as those involving public funds). Cockrill disagreed publicly with Bennett. The Audit Committee, meeting in Washington, Ark., voted to have a special Highway Department audit made. It would reflect salary changes through the end of this month. Committee members said they would have that audit before them when they meet in May, but they did not commit themselves to an investigation. This irked Raney, who called it proof that "the machine controls state government." In firing Meredith, the commission said he was uncooperative when questioned about the salary raises. Meredith was one of 55 top echelon Highway Department employes who got the fattest raises. Hampton also said Meredith was treasurer of a collection drive that resulted in the purchase of a new pickup truck for former Highway Director Mack Stugis. increases and, according to Hampton, threatened to fire veteran Highway Department employes if they told the commission about the raises. A longtime friend of Faubus, Sturgis is back at his old job of state purchasing agent. Meredith, in turn, recommended an investigation of the commission. He said the commissioners approached him in attitudes indicating interest in things other than fair inquiry or the truth behnd the raises. * * , * Hampton said he had nothing to hide and welcomed any serious investigation of the affair. State Rep. W. H. Thompson asked the Legislative Council to do just that — top to bottom, Highway Commission and Highway Department. The council decide next month whether to undertake such an investigation. Besides Meredith, the commission has fired Y. W. Whelchel, an assistant director of the department, for "being in on the scheme from the start." Whelchel has said an investigation will clear him. Sturgis approved the salary) State Sen. Fred Stafford de- fended Meredith and Whelchel before the Legislative Council. He said they were told what to do, under threat of dismissal; then they did it, and got fired, anyway, he said. Stafford didn't say where he got his information. Thompson and Stafford, both of Marked Tree, criticized the Highway Commission, claiming that its members gave preferential treatment to their own areas, and had roads built in areas despite contrary advice from professional employes of the Highway Department. Stafford even talked about impeachment of the Highway Commission members. The raises didn't come to light until an anonymous letter put newsmen on the trail of them. Since then, the raises have been revoked. The amounts paid have been refunded. The Governorship Raymond Rebsamen, 68, of Little Rock, a wealthy businessman, became the fifth Democratic candidate for governor. He pledged energy and ideas if he is elected, and said he would not conduct a lavish campaign. Eliza Thomas Services for Eliza Thomas, 75, will be at noon tomorrow at the Home Funeral Home Chapel. Rev. Lawrence Echols will officiate. Burial will be in New Hope Cemetery. She leaves four sons, George Thomas of BIytheville, Granvfil Thomas and Aaron Thomas, both of Memphis and Sam Thomas of Bakersfield, Calif., a brother, Aaron Thomas of Trumann, Ark.

But since morality, and hence the right to govern, were the products of learning, there were no rigid class bars to individual advancement Neither was he an innovator: "I have transmitted and do not create anew." He believed Chinese society had reached perfection in the days of the sage-kings and preached * return to an antiquity that had never, existed.

"Love people," said Confucius. Though he .set great store by ritual and observance of religious rites and believed that the universe was on the side of righteousness, Confucius had little use for heaven or an afterlife or disputations about the nature of a supreme being. "You do not yet know about the living," he said. "How can'you know about the dead?" Like an Oriental Diogenes, Confucius wandered from court to. court looking for an honest prince'who would put his teachings into practice.
