Insured-Suburban and Rural Construction Now Possible LITTLE JIOCK. Mar. 22. (UP)— Growing restlessness amon« legislators which today prompted adoption in the senate of a resolution lo adjourn sine die Saturday noon subsided as the senate delved hue the house's tubercular bill. As the tubercular bill was brought to discussion shortly after Senators W. F. Norrell of Montlcfllo and Clamle Hollowly of England pushed through their ndjoiinimenl pro- posa the protested provision for repeal of civil service was attached. Senator Fred Armstrong of Port Smith Introduced the first amendment lo the tubercular bill, providing for elimination of the seclion repealing Iho state's civil service law. The proposal was adopted vivu voL'e without a dissenting voice. Armstrong pushed through a see-' mul amendment for the purpose of making the sanatoria building projects eligible for federal grants. The house's disposal of the proposition of purchasing the old Baptist, college at Jonesborp for an Arkansas sanitarium resulted in introduction of a third amendment. Senator Luclen Coleman of Lepanto offered the senate's third amendment to the bill, providing for a sanitarium in Jonesboro. After an hour's debate Cole-man's Senators Luther J. Wilkes of Helena and Norrell expressed opposition to the uonesboi'o plan, concurring in the opinion lhat the Idea "is a good one" but that the "state is not ready for sectional sanltoi-ia yet." All opponents of the measure ar- Siied that the state should improve the plants at Boonevllle and Wild Cat Mountain, near port Smith, before it moves to expand and install institutions in other sections. Senator Henry Hardy of Greenbriar, speaking against the proposal, said "we should concentrate c-ur effort to Improve facilities at the present plants before we consider putting one in Jonesboro." '• _ Proponents argued that-the stati " slidulfl—purchase the old 'college grounds in Jonesboro while "we can get' them for a 'give-away'." Senator Diehard Thompson of Eureka Springs pushed through tile fifth amendment which provided for Insuring the .common school fund of no diversioas. Holloivay, arguing for the adjournment resolution, which was passed 20 lo.ll, told fellow senators that '.'our disposition so far has been to pussyfoot around here and try to' outcast the other fellow. . ." "All the fellows in our districts at home." he added, "will tell you they too are ready to adjourn us." Senator ir M. Barney ol Tex- ni-V-ana complained that he did not "see how it is practical or possible to fix a definite 'adjournment date." "We should not finish and then have to be called back here to fir Hi our work," he said. The house adjourned it noon, until fl:3l) Wednesday morning, after passing three senate bill? bi' nn overwhelming majority. The ffilkes bill appropriating $1.000.000 for highway construction \vns passed 33 to 1, while the rriemnn measure appropriating Sf>50.(ino for road maintenance received n vote of 74 to 0.

Ordinances approving the proposal and setting the lax levy for the districts were approved without a dissenting vote. Much of last night's discussion centered around tnx delinquent properties In (he two districts.
