Not from an Enclave That inter-city police plan which was revealed by police departments in Little Rock and Blytheville this week was a. manifestation of imaginative law enforcement. Police chiefs of tha respective cities merely swapped men, one coming here to work as a plain clothes detective and a Blytheville officer jrohiK to Little Hock for the same duty. Kach worked as an unknown police official in the other city for a. period of one week. The plan resulted in 15 arrests in Blytheville and several more in Little Rock. The benefits of a police officer outside of his usual habitat are obvious. They can walk into any place in town as a straiiKcr, which gives them an instant advantatie over a police officer in iiis home town—especially in a home town the size of Hlytheville. This arrangement however did not come about quite so incidentally as one mijrht think. Blytheville'g polk* department has become involved in a steadily-widening circle of law enforcement events. Members qf the department her« continue to attend classes at the Arkansas Law Enforcement Academy. Department Chief George Ford was one of the men who played an important part in the founding of the Arkansas Association of Chiefs of Police, an organization for which he has done some important work. Cities no longer may operate within sonie sort of enclave and neither ask nor give information to others. Their problems are remarkably similar and therefore it is more imortant than ever that the various police departments of the various cities extend their areas of cooperation. For the moment, this is what they are doing and with happy results. "I'm Not in the AetP ?/ nt Oil l/itwl ysf \Jlheri Dirty Poetry Friends and supporters of the University of Arkansas along with the taxpayers of the State have been given every reason to ask and expect an answer to "just what is going on in Fayetteville in administrative, faculty and student affairs?" We have already expressed our opinion on the filthy "poetry" question, but will say the following in addition: the people of Arkansas, who foot the bills for Ilie operation of the University of Arkansas, do not hold to the notion that tax money should he used to print and distribute filth, no matter how limited the original distribution .might be. The University president and Board of Trustees should have said as much when the question first arose last year. They chose to do otherwise. Now they, (especially the, president), ar caught in an embarrassing dilemma and we do not quite see at the moment how they will he able to work his way .out of it gracefully. We hope they can, for the sake of the state as well. But the people of Arkansas can be proud of their State Auditor for his courage and action in the interest of common decency and the taxpayers of Arkansas. As We all know, he refused to approve a requisition for the printing of the cluster of dirty words at a cost of about $2500 to the taxpayers of Arkansas. Jones immediately drew the wrath of the liberal press as they screamed "censorship", etc. which they all know is pure "bunk". Not a single one of these newspapers would dara print the filthy writings in their newspapers. Now, following the liberal press, Governor Winthrop Rockefeller comes out on the same side. Yes, he said—"that as long as the requisition was in proper form he saw no reason why Jones should have placed himself in the role of a censor." The answer to this statement, Mr. Rockefeller, is this—common decency and refusing to spend the hard paid tax money of the people of Arkansas to print filth.—For? dyce News Advocate Show Beat by Dick Kleiner HOLLYWOOD (NBA) "I think it's a big, big, bjg mistake," says Doroty Lamour.

While we admire Mr. Jones for his convictions and outspokeness. (and agree that the poems in question are not morally uplifting), we think that he probably has no legal grounds on which to stand. The auditor's office is set up as an allocation unit for state funds, and not as a censor bureau. We think the University administration should have settled the matter of the poems before the magazine reached the jurisdiction of the state funds office. Last year, the printer of the magazine, Al^Blake in the University printing plant, refused to print the poems involved because ha felt that they were obscene. The administration upheld him. But the English department persisted, asking for state allocation for publishing the magazine. The old worn-out issue of academic freedom was dragged in again—but we believe, as we slated last year, that academic freedom should carry academic responsibility. Obscene literature or language never enriched anyone's life—no matter what the educated professors would have the public believe. And we think that a literary magazine coming from the University shiuld be a credit to it—not a subject of condemnation over the material contained. Mr. Jones may not have legal grounds on which to stand, but we can't help agreeing with his objections.—Dumas Clarion.

The case of the "misdirected" White House telegram which fell into California Gov. Donald Reagan's hands aboard the Governor's Conference cruise ship is a fabric of inconsistencies that deserves to he I highlighted rather than forgot- .ten. Except for a couple of minor • jobs at two Republican gover- jnors, the message itself was an .unexciting recital of past reso- | lutions by the governors of both jparties in support of President Johnson on Vietnam. It went from presidential aide W. Marvin Watson to Price Daniel, director of the Office of Emergency Planning and the new White House liaison man with the governors.

But Lerner couldn't do it, so Bricusse got the assignment. "At first," Leslie said, "I had problems with Hex, and it was understandable. He was concerned when they hired somebody me — that he had never heard of. And things between us were a bit rocky at first. But once Rex has confidence in you, there is nobody who . will back you up more strongly." Bricusse is enthusiastic about film work. He believes "exciting things lie ahead" for musical films.

A check of working schedules for Oct. 18 suggests this must have been between 9:30 and 10:45 a.m. Reagan offers several versions of what happened at the outset. When he first spoke to newsmen that night, after his aides passed out duplicated copies of the White House telegram, he said an aide handed him the message at the conference and he gave it back when lie saw it was not for him. Next day he told a reporter he quickly concluded the message was for "general distribution" and had read it through- surprised at the end by stabs at Governors Rhodes of Ohio and earlier than he got his copy, which would put Daniel's receipt of it back to the afternoon 1?- • •' I Janice Johnson, Linda Taylor, Reagan said at Sacramento; Betty j^,,, Garro it, Nancy Ham- that conference aides gave the ; ^ .

I don't maKe recommend^ lions about buying or selling a particular stock, bijt I do like :o point out factors that are wise to consider as YOU make a decision to buy or sell a par- :icular stock. One of the factors is th« sales record of the firm. I think you'll find there is no record of regular growth in sales of company. Another factor about the price you pay for a his is growth in-the earnings per share record. Technicolor's iresent earnings of $1.0.1 per the past. A third factor is earnings ratio. At $30, Technicolor is currently selling at 30 times earnings. 'This is rather high and particularly so for a stock that has not had a clear record of growing sates and profitability.' ' You mention a couple of your stock - buying practices that I think, you should reconsider: You say you won.'t buy a stock that sells at more than $20 a share and that you always buy at least 100 shares. In my book neither of these limitations is wise. The important thing to bear in mind iha,re are no higher than they selling for $1 may well be over- have been for many years in Blytheville (Ark.)

R.'Price fund will' have its stock split- and is this a good fund to invest in? A. I am not aware of any plans for the T. R. Price fund to split. Ordinarily, a mutual fund doesn't split its shares;, since It customarily pays out its realized income in dividends. If you want to compare its performance with that of other funds you can go to your public library or broker's office and loork it UP in Arthur Wiesenbert ger'i "Investment Companies" This book gives the record of most of the major funds.
