2 · NorthwtM Arkanwj TIMES, Tun., F«b. 27, T973 FAVITTKVILLK, AMKANCA* Bumpers Says Gasoline Tax Is Up To State Legislators LITTLE ROCK (AP) - Gov. Pale Bumpers said Monday it was the legislature's place to make the decision on whether -Ho increase the state gasoline tax by one cent as part of his : plan for an annual $30 million . program. The governor had outlined his proposal last week in an ad* dross to the General Assembly, but did not say at that time whether he. wanted the legislature to act on the tax increase ^ or to refer it to the people for : -approval. The gasoline tax increase Check Urged In \ Money Supply | Growth Rate ~f · A reduced rate of growth in '·'the money supply, even at the f. risk of "a mini-recession or a i r e c e s s i o n , ' 1 is urged by · t economist Milton Friedman in ;:_.the February issue of The Morgan Guaranty Survey. Professor Friedman, in an article in the bank publication, says curbing inflation requires cutting back to an annual gfowth rate of between five per cent and seven per cent in t h e "broad" money supply (including t i m e and savings deposits in commercial banks but excluding large certificates of deposit). The growth rate las year was between 10 per cent and 11 per cent. The University of Chicago economist recommends that the Federal Reserve reduce the rate of increase in the money supply to the recommendec level "at once" and keep i there. He acknowledges that doing so "might entail a mini- recession or a recession. There may simply be no way at this stage to prevent an acceleration of inflation without at least a mini-recession." The five per cent to seven per cent range is based on a s i m i l a r growth rate targeted for " n o m i n a l income" -- which P r o f e s s o r Friedman relates, io gross national produce - and an assumption of little or no variation in the speed will which money changes hands. The income target is set hy adding a three per cent - four per cent annual growth rate in "real" output to the two per cent -- three per cent annua rate of inflation which Professor Friedman says j-jlhe presen administration "is more thai willing to settle for." The author suggests that 111 slowing in money growth b achieved in one immediate sle "from here to there." H rejects both the "gradualistic approach, which would chang the growth rate in stages, am the "control theory" approach which would start by reducing g r o w t h even below t h e prescribed rate - perhaps stopping growth altogether - and then bringing it up to the target !,,,._! level. : Recalling that he supported "gradualism" in early 1969, he says he since has'. been persuaded that he was wrong. Of the more drastic method he says: "It requires delicate fine tuning for which the Fed has neither the knowledge nor the demonstrated capacity. I fear a repetition of past episodes ol swinging too far first in one direction and then in the other." He calls his recommended s t r a t e g y a "compromise" between the two approaches. W h i le acknolwedging that, "given the unduly high rate of monetary growth already experienced," it could bring on a business downturn, he says it "would avoid a severe recession and permit a g r a d u a l adjustment of the rate of inflation to the target rate." 4-H Council Elecfs New Officers W I I I Wl m Jeff Montgomery of the Highland 4-H Club was elected president of the Washington County 4-H Council at a leadership training session conducted Monday night at the Animal Sci- ·jsnce Building on the University of Arkansas Campus. .,,* In other elections, conducted 'by Ronnie Belole, retiring vice president, Debra Welshenbaugh ·of Sasnakra was elected vice ^president; Susan Russell of Springdale Community Club, 'secretary-treasurer; S h a r o n ·Cunningham of Zion Fishback, ireporter; Cheryl Sacks of Far- jrhington, photographer and ·Oebbie Trammell of Harmon *£nd Barbara Walker of Far- ·niington, song leaders. »'·, Prior to the election the 100 '4H club officers present met in separate training sessions.

However, he declin- A d to say if he would veto the ill. re He said a Little Rock-Pine y Huff highway had priority and ^ lat he was concerned about it j^ eing built. However, Bumpers said he . Iso was concerned about the ,, recedent the measure would T et in mandating to the High- vav Commission on where to . uild roads. He said that if the * neasure became law, groups rom other sections of the state 5j vould seek legislation that ^ vould require the highway Ia ommission to build t h e m oads. He also said the hill « vould "destroy" his own road S, rogram. D HIGH PRIORITY e If his $30 million program is pproved, Bumpers said the . Little Hock-Pine Bluff highway hould receive "the very highest priority." He said the High- vay Commission had plans to build the four lanes in five years, anyway, but that his lan would "materially reduce" .he time for the road to be constructed. Another reason he said he opposed the appropriation bill was a ruling .by House Speaker G. W. Turner Jr. of Pine Bluff / that the measure required only a a .majority vote for passage, r Bumpers said s o m e con- ( slitutional lawyers believed the ( lill needed a three-fourths fa- c vorable vote for approval and r .hat enactment by the legisla- o ture with only a majority vote would open the way to a court '. attack on the bill. h In response to a question on t why he had decided to ask the I egislature to act on the ! a s o 1 ! n e tax increase t J u m p e r s said it was the o cgislature's responsibility. Sec- s ondly, he said, the cost of a n special election would be "in- \ ordinatcly high." T h e esti- ° mated cost is about $300,000; fi The governor said he felt a 'total program" should be sub- ' mitted in one package and that ! this could he done through sub- * mission to the legislature. Only the tax could be submitted in a special election, he said. Bumpers said the tax in- '' crease would be difficult to ' pass in the General Assembly ! but said he believed it would L _ he. .... ; . ..:. . PeTilJbn Opposes Payment For Use Of Lake Areas A. G. Croxton of Fayetteville says he is "amazed how this thing has caught on." He refers to a petition campaign directed to the chief engineer' of the United States Corps of Engineers slating that the signers are "in full opposition to the forced paymenl of any charges for the use of any federal water project facilities." Croxton says the Corps plans to instigate charges for use of facilities at the lakes, including Beaver, on or about March 1 -- charges which he understands could run to $4.50 a day for the use of the facilities already built and w h i c h have heen free. The petitioners also are "demanding the repeal of those sections of the Omnibus Flood Control Act of 1968 which empower the Engineers to levy and-or collect any charges for the use of public facilities, if any pending proposed additional charges are levied." Petitions have within less t h a n a week's lime been sent to a number of cities and towns in this area, and Monday night Croxlon was prepared to mail to Washington petitions with more than 2.500 names. He wanted to get them to the chief engineer before March 1. Other petitions will be sent as they arc signed and collected. He has encountered so much enthusiasm for the project that he says "It is getting too big for me to handle alone," He plans to get camping groups and the like to take a hand. Croxton has heen in touch with Rep. John Paul Hammerschmidt of Arkansas, and he says a bill which would stop the charges has heen offered by an Oklahoma congressman.

Variance Of Zoning Denied For Drive-ln The Fayetleville Board of Adjustment Monday rejected an appeal to allow a drive-in restaurant to be built at a site 2648 N. College Ave. The developer asked to build a canopy nearer the highway than required by the city zoning ordinance. Charles Vanlandingham of Tallequah, Okla.. told the board he sought the variance in order construct a Sonic Drive-In Restaurant on the site. Vanlandingham argued that the franchise drive-in fast-food operations came in a standard size and, owing to the narrowness of the lot, the canopy would extend to within 20 feet of the highway. The required setback is 50 feet. A landowner in the site is Loris Stanton, a developer and member of the Fayetteville Board of Directors. SIMILAR REQUESTS ·Stanton told the board that many lots along North College are 140-190 feet deep and the commissioners w o u I'd face similar requests in the future. Al Witte. an Adjustment Board member, said that was a good reason to reject Vanlandingham's appeal. "I doijXJeeUike this board was created to ' amend the zoning ordinance," he said. Later he suggested that Vanlandingham could seek a review of the zoning pattern for the area. "If that 50-feet setback is creating a hardship then it ought to be taken to the board of directors," Wilte said. After the meeting. Stanton told Bobbie Jones, city planning administrator, he would write a letter asking for a review of the zoning. Two board members were absent -- Carl Yates due lo out- of-town business and Miss Suzanne Lighten due lo illness. The board rejected the appeal 3-0, with Wille.

House Bill 393. introduced by Representative B e a u m o n t , became Act 168, Arkansas iaw, when it was signed by Gov. Dale Bumpers Feb. 21. It passed the House Feb.' 7 and the Senate Feb, 16. The names of candidates for members of the Board of Directors will appear on ballots in the preferential primaries rather than on the general election ballot, under terms of the new law. If no candidate for each position receives a majority vole in the prefcren- tials. the two who receive the greatest number of votes for each position will have their names placed on the ballot at the general primary election. The ballots for city board will show no party designation. · Rep. Charles Stewart said, in reporting the measure has been signed into law, that he sees no difficulty in putting t h e names of city board candidates on special ballots in the Demo- c r a t i c a n d Republican primaries. Terms for Russell Purdy, Loris Stanton and Robert Utley end in 1974, so presumably the next vote for city board members will be " in the preferential primary in 1974.
