Health department official LITTLE ROCK (AP) -- Several legislators said Monday they thought the General Assembly should decide the fate ot a gasoline lax increase to finance road improvements. They called on Gov. Dale Bumpers to forego a public referendum. The governor had planned in liis speech to a joint session of the legislature Monday to recommend a special election vote by the people on a one-cent increase in the per gallon tax on gasoline. He had. however, a last-minute change of mind and deleted that section from the prepared text in which he outlined his plan for a $30 million a year road construction .program. Instead, he told the General Assembly he would decide within three days on whether to propose a referendum. Bumpers apparently made the deletion after talking with Reps. B. D. Brandon of Little Rock, Wayne Hampton of Stuttgart and John Miller of Melbourne shortly before making the address. Brandon said lie told the governor that, by referring the tax to a special election, he would be establishing a precedent that would "offer a crutch for legislative action for the next 20 years -- it wouldn't pass any revenue-producing measure" without a referendum. Gangsters In Japan Muscle In On Business By MITSUO KIMURA TOKYO (AP) -- Ah so? Family of Godfather has honorable Japanese branch? Not exactly, but the Japanese national police are concerned enough about organized crime to have launched Operation Crush and Cleaning against mobsters at work in this land of law and order. Police say the estimated 124,000 Japanese gangsters run gambling and loan sharking operations, drug trafficking and business shakedowns. They a r e trying to infiltrate legitimate business. They are well bankrolled for the expansion. Kazuo Hirabayashi, superintendent of the National Police Agency, said authorities confiscated about $9 million in raids on gambling dives alone last year. Like many otter crime is different in Japan. Although there are burglaries and an occasional killing or kidnap- ing, the streets of Tokyo and other major cities are-'generally safe all night. But police have become worried about a merger between ;he Japanese underworld's top two rival gangs and their moves toward muscling into above-board businesses. MAJOR STEP Hirabayashi said the merger of the Yamaguchi-Gumi Gang from Kobe in western Japan and the Inagawa-Kai from Tokyo reflects a move by the Yam- aguchi-Gumi mob to become the "underworld ruler" withoui a gang war. "We regard this merger as Yamaguchi-Gumi's major step in Tokyo, where its influence has been little," he added in an nterview. The aim of the merger apparently .is to provide stronger opposition to police by presenting a united front. But Hirabayashi doesn't see it as an e n d to btruggle for power between the ;angs and their factions. The merged gangs also are seeking wider influence in legitimate taxi fleets, construc- .ion firms, tourists' hotels and night clubs, authorities said. J a p a n ' s economic boom means money in these fields The investments also give un derwprld groups the opportun ity to claim they no longer nee to deal in Illegal activities. The TIMES Is The Best Buy For Your Advertising Dollars! highway received a "do pass" recommendation from the Legislative Joint Budget Committee Thursday. Alford said he considered Bumpers' plan "a personal affront." He said he thought the governor was trying to shoot down his bill. Alford said that he would like .0 see the state vote a $1 billion highway bond issue, but he said :hat was not feasible at this time. DISAPPOINTED Rep. Preston Bynum of Si loam Springs also said he was "disappointed" at the governor's presentation. He said Bumpers had promised a ful' disclosure of his plans Monday but observed that the governor wanted another three days ir which to make his final plans. Bynum said a $30 million pro gram would be "a big help 1 but that the governor was "vacillating" in his plans. Brandon said it was difficul to oppose a referendum on ! gasoline lax increase, but tha he General Assembly would be cmiss in its responsibility if it lid not decide the issue. Miller said that a lax issue presented to the people, if not iroperly explained, could easily e defeated. Hampton said the legislatures should "shoulder the job they are sent here to do." Sen. Robert Harvey of Swifton said the legislature should decide the issue. Red Cross Officer KEY BISCAYNE, Fia. (AP) -- Frank Stauton, a Columbia Broadcasting System executive, will be named by President Nixon as principal officer of tha . American National Red Cross. Stanton, president of CBS from 1046 to 1971, now serves as vice chairman of the board. He will serve concurrently as a member of the Red Cross board of governors and as its chief officer, succeeding E. Roland Harriman. who is resigning effective March 31. 9th Century Shells Removed From Museum MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The Oth century fallout shelter in he Milwaukee Public Museum o longer is the repository for ome 19th century artillery hells. i Kenneth Starr, the museum's director, disclosed on Monday hat eight evidently live shells rom the Civil and Spanish- American wars were discovered last month while a curator was moving some crates in a storage area of the shelter. Starr said demolition experts ,ook the shells to Ft. Sheridan, [11. They are to be destroyed, tie said. Assistant curator Michael Mpdaus said the shells had been donated at least 57 years ago and had remained undisturbed in their crates because ' ' n o b o d y probably thought much about them." reminds pet owners it is their responsibility to. protect their community and family from an outbreak of rabies in dogs by obtaining vaccinations for pets. Theft Reported Between $150 and $170, mostly in $10 and $20 bills, was stolen from Pizza International on West Dickson Street about 8 p.m. Monday, police were told. The manager of the restaurant notified police at 11:05 p.m. that he left the area for a few minutes and returned to find the bills missing. Benefit Dinner FARMINGTON -- A chili and Irish Stew dinner will be held at the Farmington Masonic building Thursday. Serving hours are from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Proceeds will go to maintain the Masonic Building. The benefit is sponsored by the Farmington Home Extension Club. ELECTION COSTS Hampton also said he told Bumpers the cost of a special election would be $300,000. Bumpers told newsmen the cost of the election and the precedent the referral would set were factors that led him to drop from his speech the reference to referring the issue to the voter. The road construction plan proposed by Bumpers -- utilizing federal revenue sharing funds and the penny increase in the gasoline tax -- is similar to a compromise bill pending in the House that is backed by Brandon, Hampton, Miller and others. Rep. Boyce Alford of Pine Bluff called Bumpers' plan a "Mickey Mouse program," because the amount each year "would not make 10 to 15 miles of primary roads." He called the plan "a patchy program." Alford also said Bumpers "had never had a road program, he didn't mention one," until after Alford's bill to appropriate $20 million for a four- lane Little Rock-to-Pine Bluff FOR YOUR MONEY!
