N o r t h w e s t Arkansas h a s arrived, Joe Gaston of the Soil Conservative Service h a s suggestions on providing houses for them. He says the birds prefer nesting sites at least 30 feet away from the nearest tree or 'other obstruction and at least 15 feet above the ground. .Houses may be of simple con- 'struction, from gourds to boxes, but also may he elaborate multi-story houses containing many compartments. "The martins' affinity for a particular spot is so strong that they will return year after year to the same house to raise their offspring." He said that unseasonably cold weather can cause the deaths of whole colonies, causing them to freeze and eliminating their scource of food. He said also that each adult bird can eat as many as 2,000 mosquitoes a day and is fond of flies and other flying insects. The SCS has information available on house plans for the martins and also for blue birds. Legislative Report By MORR1SS HENRY Slate Senator If you have heard people don't remember what n politician promised, don't believe it. Many people recall that when I was campaigning last summer I said I'd support a reasonable "No-Fault Insurance" bill if one came up during this session ol the Legislature. Several of these same people have asked me why I^was one of two senators to vote against Ihe so-called "No-Fault Insurance Act," HB 158. last week. I voted against it because 1 would like lo support a sensible sort of no-fault insurance bill. The only resemblance HB 158 bears to a no-fault insurance plan is in the title. No-fault insurance means simply that the insurance company agrees to pay the person insured no matter who's at fault, if anyone is. Each driver's insurance company, under a pure no-fault plan, takes care of his own insured driver. The plan eliminates many lawsuits and usually results in lower premiums and in quicker settlements .of claims. Under traditional negligence law, the person who's at fault -- or his insurance company -pays for damages caused by his own negligent conduct. The insurance lobby has introduced in the House of Representatives another hill, HB 482, which is much closer to the .no-fault idea. HB 482 would make no-fault insurance mandatory up lo certain limits. It would prohibit lawsuits unless damages exceeded $3.000 or unless the injury was one specified in the bill. The bill would also require a 10 per cent reduction in auto liabilily insurance premiums. However, HB 482 is still in the House committee and we may not have an opportunity to vote on it this session. The bill which we did vote on, HB 158. passed and now has been signed into law by the governor. The passage of this bill may kill any hope in this session for a real no-faull insurance measure in Arkansas. INCREASED CHARGE Even the backers of HB 158 admitted that people who add the no-fault provision to their policies will pay about a 20 per cent increase in the liability portions of their policies per ,' e a r . Several Washington bounty insurance agents advised me the increase would be close to $20 per year. The bill proposed by the insurance ;rpup would lower insurance; ra.tes 10 per cent or a difference; of 30 per cent between the bills. HB 15.8. was prepared by a j committee of attorneys. A I number of attorneys opposed 1 no-fault insurance. Some think it \is tip violation of our state constitution; others simply fear any kind of change and some genuinely believe it would deprive injured persons of their full day in court. The sad thing about HB 153 is not necessarily that it's an inadequate no-fault law. The bill bypasses the heart of no-fault insurance by making it optional at the very outset. Many legislators concede that this bill s inadequate but indicate it can e improved in future years. Whether this occurs or not 1 still hope to have the opportunity to consider and upport the measure that will actually reduce insurance rates Arkansas. (CONTINUED FROM PAQI ONE) handed over. But the Communists balked, demanding that the United States and South Vietnam come to terms on the release of civilians held by'the Saigon government and guarantees to end harassment of the North Vietnamese and Viet Cong representatives to the peacekeeping commissions in Saigon and other South Vietnamese cities. The United States retaliated by suspending the withdrawal of American . troops and the sweeping of mines In North Vietnamese waters. President Nixon also ordered Secretary of State William P. Rogers to boycott the activities of the Paris conference on Vietnam utilil the POW issue was cleared up. Rogers met Wednesday with Foreign Minister Nguyen Duy Trinh of North Vietnam, and a U.S. spokesman said Trinh assured him Ihe POWs would be released soon. Meanwhile, the United States opened consulates general in four South Vietnamese cities today and closed out its controversial pacification headquarters. The U.S. Embassy said Ihe consulates had been established at Da Nang, on the northern coast; Nha Trang, on Ihe cen- Iral coast; Bien Hoa, in the Saigon area, and Can Tho, in the Mekong Delta, This gives the United States representation in all four military regions of the country in preparation for withdrawal of the last American military forces by March 28.

MOOSE RETURN TO ANCHORAGE ANCHORRAGE, Alaska (AP) -- The moose are starting to wander into the streets and gardens of Anchorage as they usually dp every winter, and this city of 130.000 again is taking on the appearance of a zoo. The big beasts, weighing up to nearly a ton, are simply hungry. The open spaces in and around Anchorage have an abundant supply of the foods moose like best--such as willow and birch scrubs. Residents of Anchorage are used to the annual visit of some 800 to 1.300 moose, but they've learned to avoid being blase about it. "My daughter demolished a four-door sedan," one city official explained. "She hit a moose who kicked the car to pieces trying to get off the hood." In about a month, the snow will melt some and the moose can find their natural food supplies out where they belong. Obituary BASCOM GAYER Bascom Gayer, 80, of Route 1, Elkins, died Wednesday In Governors (CONTINUED FROM PAGE ONE) has been the administration's chief spokesman and defender during the meetings. Holton also declared he re mains optimistic, despite cool, ness among congressional leaders, that the Nixon administration will succeed in per suading Congress to convert many of the 1.000-plus specific federal-aid programs into four "special revenue-sharing" programs giving slates wide latitude on spending. But Mandel and Bumpers said the administration officials were unable to say which specific federal programs would be dropped, and when the administration's plans would be ready for presentation to Congress-though they said the officials contended federal h e l p next year would be the same as this year. "We're still in a state of limbo so far as our own programs are concerned," said Bumpers, who noted that many states have to act on budgets during current legislative sessions without knowing how much fed: eral help is to be expected.
