In Right Ploce At Right Time Young Trooper Compiles Impressive Record LITTLE ROCK (AP)-Trooper John Faulk has compiled an impressive record with the Arkansas State Police, thanks to good judgment, acute perception -- and a little bit of luck. The luck factor is one on which officers often rely to break what otherwise might be perfect crimes. Faulk, in 18 months, has made dozens of arrests, including 12 major ones, volve felonies. which in- A REAL TROOPER . . .

"He is an alert and observant young man." said Col. Ralph fa. Scott, director of the State Police, in praising Faulk. "He has been at the right place at the right time and most of the time he did the right thing." Scott said. Scott maintains that many of the agency's 2G8 officers . have performed as Faulk did. But, luck would have it. Faulk was the man "in the right place at the right time." RIGHT PLACE Normally, that would be on patrol on a section of Inter- ROGERS -- Area leaders met here Tuesday to develop a program for informing residents of Benton and Washington Counties of the necessity for air ser- week. On one occasion he halted a car simply because its driver had not dimmed the headlights. The car turned out to be stolen, the driver AWOL from the Air Force, and carrying $33 stolen from the owner of the car. The driver, when asked to produce a driver's license, said it was under the car seat, but Faulk ordered him not to reach beneath the seat. The officer looked for himself and found a .45-caliber pistol. That was the first arrest Faulk made involving a felony case. On another occasion, while following behind a car. he sensed that the passengers in the vehicle ahead of h i m were getting extremely nervous. Then one of them put something beneath the car seat "When I signalled for them to pull over, they took longer to stop than most people normally take," Faulk said.

The Authority plans to ask voters in the two county area to approve a two-mill bond levy to raise $2.5 million in local funds for constrution of the $5 million airport. Matching federal grants will come mainly from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). ELECTION NOT SET No date for the election has been set. If an all-weather airport is not constructed in the area, Cass H o u g h , RAA chairman predicted, "We run the risk of Fort Smith's field becoming the Northwest Airport.' Arkansas Regional A u t h o r i t y members, w h o have been in touch with officials of Frontier Airlines, the only regular air s e r v i c e into the area, have been told that within the next two years, Frontier hopes to conyert to pure jet planes, according to Hough.

Bob Haynes. manager of the Rogers Chamber, told the group, Washington County is third and Benton County fourth in industrial employment in Arkansas. A substantial number of industries that have moved into Favetteville and the surrounding area since 1954--when regular air service was initiated at Drake Field--have told city leaders they would not have located here had not air service been available, according to Authority member Bill Morton. "We need to tell the man who works for such an industry that even thougli he never rides an airplane, and seemingly has no interest in air travel, that his job is dependent on regular air service into the area,' speakers said.

Here to wiMt IMman Morin, two-tin* Pulitzer prize winner, »«^*t «w*tt WWenoth, complete biography of the man: "Eisenhower goes into history as om of the most popular of Presidents, in whom Americans recognized an earnest; kindly, sincere man of unquestionable integrity. "As a politican he was almost unique in that he was wholly without the 'jugular instinct,' the urge to destroy an enemy; he was more prone to turn the other cheek. "He also was one of the most selfless Presidents, less concerned with his popularity and the expedient actions that might enhance it than what he considered the well being of the United States and her allies. "When Eisenhower came to office, bitterness and rancor divided the nation; when he left, an' era of good feeling had replaced the sense of divisiveness. The credits far outweighed the debits in his presidency." Morin's judgment is based on long professional and per- ·onal acquaintance with the general, and on a year's study and research; which included long conversations with him and with many of his associates and, best of all, access to his private letter files. The result is a big book (8Vi by 11 Inches, 264 pages, more than 85 pictures in black and white and color, and a 140,000 word text.)
