PAGE TEN McMath Urges Higher State Pay In Farewell Talk Four-Y«or Term For Governor Also Recommended (Continued from Page 1) staggered terms for the Highway Commission, and added: "There Is one precaution which I would like to make. During my kdmtnisrtatlon we have spent 38 million dollars on our primary (road system »nd 34 million dollars on our farm-to-markct ro«d». "It Is my sincere belief ihnl this Legislature should seriously con•Ider formulating a directive to the Highway Commission that would Insure the continuation of * fair *nrt equitable allocation of highway funds for our farm-to- market road construction." IMORE) ' McMath s»!d that the financial resources of the governor are taxed "far beyond the resources provided for the position." Commenting that. "I feel that BOW I can speak to you about tb« governor's office without tho fear of being accused of selfish motives," McMattrsald: "Your next chief executive can perform * better Job of representing the great state 1( lie Is given a salary and operating' fund sufficient to enable him to perform the various functions of the office." v "The next most Important step, hi my opinion, In promoting administrative efficiency Is that of providing a ,4-year term for the governor and providing for the inauguration of the new chief executive In November,- immediately after the general election." Clta Cent of Catnalgnlnr McMath complained that (lie "cost of campaigns for offices as competitive as the governor's race have exceeded all bounds of reason." : "It »ould not be difficult to determine In the light of recent experience the minimum cost required to conduct 'a race for governor," he said. "A statutory limitation should then be placed upon the amount permitted to be spent on this campaign." The governor suggested that Japanese Warn Russia About Plane Incidents TOKYO (AP)— Japan, irritated by "at least 20 or 30" violation! of Its borders, today warned Russia ngalnst sending wnrplanes over Japanese territory. A Foreign Office spokesman said U. S. defense planes would shoot dm™ Intruders If necessary. The U. s. had approved Japan's ultimatum In advance. Japan thus In effect rattled a rj. S. snber against Its old enemy to the north. It did not nnme Russia, but left no doubt that's the country It meant. Shortly after the blunt warning, Gen. Mark Clark's headquarters announced the fm East commander had ordered Ills defense chiefs In Japnn to take "all measures necessary to prcrait further violations of Japan's security or act* which endanger U. 3. forces." campaign funds could be raised In either one of three ways: (1) appropriation by tho Legislature; (2) raised by the political party concerned, or (3) raised by the individual candidate arid his sup porlere. 'If It should be decided that the tunds are to be raised by tho candidate, then a certified list of nil contributors with -amounts contributed should be required to be kept, and filed will) the Secretory of Slntc," said McMnth. McMath asked Unit the Legislature continue "the present allocation of revenue" to complete construction of tbe Medical Center here. He specifically asked that Hie proposed Nursing School be provided for. Only last week, the Arkansas Legislative Council re (used to consider a request (or 115,000 a, year to operate tho Nursing School. '."Providing an adequate educational program has been a con slant objective of my administration," said tbe governor. "The program of equal facilities .-lust be continue duutll Negro students arc provided tbe same educational opportunities as our while students." he said. McMath. snld the most serious problem facing the schools today Is low teacher salaries. He rcc- ommende dlho $2,400 yearly minimum as "the most Important stop Ihal could be taken at this time to Increase the quality of instruction In our public schools." BLYTHEVJLLE (ARK.)

Cherry snld the Highway Com- lission he has selected was one "with courage, with nn uisprln? spirt of public service, with Integrity and with an unusual amount of bruin power." Cherry said his fiscal proposals which Include n proposed new Department of Finance and Ad- Tiinlstrnllon with broad powers and a provision for legislative-directed lost auditing of expenditures, had is "Its ultimate purpose to establish complete cy<e of top administrative control"over the ex- >cntllluie of every dime ot lax noney that comes Into the state rovcrnment In any form and from ill sources."

Cherry said again, as he has before, that he didn't favor any lax increases. He said he believed Ihere could be "better government through better administration of the tax dollars." CARTEL (Continued from Pag« 1> would fill In with particulars alter It got tbe records It is seeking. A criminal antitrust conviction Involves fines for corporations and fines and possible jail sentences for Individuals. A civil antitrust action involves court orders terminating arrangements challenged as illegal by the government and Injunctions against continuation of such practices. The whole Investigation stems from a Federal Trade Commission study alleging that Standard of New Jersey, Standard of California, Socony-Vacuum Oil Company, Gulf Oil Corp. and Texas Oil Company had Joined foreign oil companies In a world cartel which divided International markets and dominated production, distribution and pricing. The companies denied any cartel arrangements but McGranery sent the whole matter to a grand jury here last September.
