THURSDAT, APRIL T, BLYTinEYTLLl (AMC.y WDURDEE HEWS Cash Funds Suit Hits 36 Agencies Arkansas T«st Cast To Include Money Never Appropriated LITTLE ROCK, April 1—</P)—A special supreme court will be necessary to pass on validity of the use of cash funds by stnte departments, agencies and Institutions, It was Indicated today. Rep. James A. Gipson of Saline County, who Tuesday announced plans for a court test of cash funds f;ald today he Is amending the proposed complaint to Include 36 r.tate fluencies, Including the supreme court, which operate unappropriat- ed cash funds. Being a party to the litigation It would be necessary for Iho present members of the supreme court to disqualify when the case comes bfore it. It would then be the ciutj of the governor to name a spccia court to decide the case. Court attaches said the lust time the high court disqualified itself li a body was about 20 years ago who: a salary Increase was contested. Rep. Gipson said that he would file suit In Pulaski Chancery Cour against the State Hospital 'attacking expenditure of money from H cash fund without a legislative appropriation. He said that lie had decided to ".letlle the matter a! stale employes -.using cash funds for all time." and glpvas amending his complaint to include all of the 36 state' agencies which operate cash funds. The supreme court has a cash fund derived from fees for licensing attorneys. Court officials said It was used to purchase books for the supreme court library. Other agencies, including all colleges, have cash funds which receive money'from various non-tax sources. Most of the money does not go through the slate treasury and is spent wlihont an appropriation by the legislature. Attorney General Ike Muny said yesterday that if Gipson Is successful In halting unrestricted use of cash funds, a special session of the legislature miHht be necessary. But he added. "I'm ready lo have a suit on Ihe matter to get It settled finally." KOI!
