Gipson of Bentou said here today that he would start court action Thursday In an effort to naU use of cash funds by state Institutions.

Gipson said there are 25 people employed at the state hospital whose jobs were not authorized by the legislature, but who are bciiiR paid out of cash funds. Dr. George Jackson, hospital superintendent, was not immediate. 1.V available for comment. ' ' Gipson said he was basing his court action on an opinion by former Attorney General Guy E. Williams.

This must be done by the legislature Itself." Gets 180 Days -Sen.
