McPherson were featured at the February .meeting of the Northwest Arkansas Archeological Society 'at the Shiloh Museum in Spring dale Sunday. There were 52 persons in 'attendance to hear Dr. Harner tell about the collections and 'they were' permitted to handle the rare and fragile objects. Dr. 'Harner discussed the acquisition of the items and said the government of Mexico now has strictly enforced laws about taking archeological findings out of the country. "This means that objects now in museums and in private collections are becoming i n c r e a s i n g l y .valuable," the speaker noted. The museum has a representative collection of early Mexican pottery, obsidian, .iade land copper objects presented by ;Dr. Harner and are displayed -in cases which were also ;donated by him. .

Board Fails To Act On Canopy By failing to act, the Fayetle- ville Board ot Directors killed a petition to put a canopy over the gasoline pumps at Speedway Grocery store on Hwy. 45 east. "I've always wondered what a 'Mexican standoff was and now I think I know," said Mayor Russell Purdy. "It is where everyone agrees that they want to do a thing... hut, technically, it can't be done." Some 30 surrounding property owners filled the board room at City Hall to protest rezoning the grocery site at 525 Mission Boulevard to commercial use. But many of them said at ;he outset they had no objection .0 the canopy. A few said they nought gas there and wished it could be constructed, including Paul Noland, a city director. He put the dilemma into words when he said: "To rezone it is breaking faith with those property owners (applause)... and I don't object to putting the canopy up (laughter)." Said Purdy: "Frankly, with great sympathy, toward the store owners. I don't see any way we can do it." Mrs. Orton asked if the property owners would object to Special Flights To Spa During Racing Planned Scheduled Skyways, Ihe Fay- etteyille-based c o m m u t e r airline, will operate special flights between Fayetteville and Hot Springs on Fridays and Saturdays during the remainder ol the race season.

The number includes 23 t e r n a t i o n a l students ind students from 28 states outside Arkansas. There are 101 more students this spring semester than in 1972: such a "contrived" solution as rezoning a small portion of the land around the pumps to 'allow the canopy to be constructed. NOT IN PROVINCE City Attorney David Malone allow'ed that it might take an amendment to the zoning ordinance to accomplish it, and that would take further study. Stanlon asked if it was 'within the province of this board to grant a variance',' to a l l o w t h e non-conforming structure to be put up. "No, sir," Malone said. F. H. Martin, attorney for the store, said the board could temporarily rezone the land around the pumps without setting a dangerous precedent. "Every case is different," he said. "Property owners might object in another case." An elderly lady closed the discussion, saying Hwy. 45 is the only pretty gateway to the city. "We don't like to have it meddled with in any way, whatsoever," she said. Purdy paused for a moment: "I believe it dies for lack ol action." The proposal had stumped the Fayetteville Planning Commission two weeks ago. The commission spent an hour seeking a way to allow the canopy to be constructed but without success. M a l o n e said temporary rezoning would; be difficult recall. Larry Wood of t Northwest Arkansas Regional Planning Commission suggested a "compact" commercial area there but the commission disapproved it.
