Trends in education in Arkansas In rrcent years have been toward a (rreater degree of "home role" under an act initiated in the last jrneral election by the school patrons and other electors working In cooperation with Arkansas Jfcden In the field of education. Hrhe school improvements here which no?.* are taking the form of new buildings were approved by the voters in the Blytheville district. On September 27 in the first annual school election to be held since the adoption of the Initiated act of 1948. the voters will have an opportunity lo exercise their new privileges in passing on the budgets for • operations for the 1950-51 school term. The budget for 1949-50 was set up by school officials as in the past and does not require approval of the voters under the new act. Voters under the new act will continue to exercise the right to determine the tax rate to be levied against real and personal property In the district, and to approve or reject all bond Issues to provide funds for the construction of modern Jfcbol buildings. ' While the voters nrxl month will pass on on lr the 1950-51 bud- fti for the district, the rrsult of fhe balloting nn the school mill- aqr Jrv\ could have a bearing on the I9M-50 term's finances.

Army, Navy, Air Force Johnson Maps Out Plan Affecting Civilian Workers WASHINGTON, Aug. 24. (>P) _ Secretary of Defense Johnson announced today the armed services will chop off 135.000 civilian Jobs in tits t'-'-e to slash military spending. Johnson told a gathering of the lawmakers at the Pentagon that the economy program Is aimed at getting "a dollar's worth of defense for every dollar Congress gives." "It goes hack to my conviction not to tolerate a defense WPA," Johnson declared. Senator Pcpjwr <D-Fla) agreed there shouldn't he a defense WPA but he ild he doesn't "want to see WPA elsewhere." He told Johnson that not only are 135.500 breadwinners losing their Jobs "but the grocery store on the corner, the landlords and merchants will be affected too." But Johnson also got support. Senator Ferguson (R-MtcVO said he agreed fully with the move. "It Is lime." Ferguson added, "to call a halt in mllltury spending." Senator Hunt (R-Wyo), and Rep. Boykin (D-Ala) also expressed approval. Nnvy Installations were the hardest hit in the civilian cut. They were ordered to reduce by 78,000 the Army by 41,000 and Air Force 18,000. Vast Savinri This program, going into effect immediately, will result in an estimated savins of 5200,000.000 In the current year ending next June 30. Then it is calculated to bring a saving of $500,000.000 a year thereafter. A total of 60 installations will be closed down, many will be cut severely. These savings were worked out by the Individual services themselves, the Army, Navy and Air Force. Brooklyn Naval shipyard's civilian employment—12,225 on July 31—was ordered cut by 3385. Some of these reductions will go into effect Immediately and others will start in about three months. But the (nil effect Is not ex "pecfed to be felt until the next fiscal year beginning July 1, 1950. Johnson Is :eported to be aiming to ho!d defense spending in that year to II3.400.000.000. That would be $1,500.000,000 less that proposed for the current fiscal year. The 41.000 cut in employment for the Army will bring its total civilian force down to 336.000 for military and civilian functions. Including rivers and harbors work. The Navy reduction of 76.000 will lower Its civilian employment to 2S3.000. Tile Air Force slash of 18 000 will leave 151,000. The number of reserve officers now on active duty also will he reduced. In the next two to three months, 12.073 will be returned to inactive status. Of these. 5,787 are In the Army, 3.157 In the Navy and 3,120 in the Air Force. Aside from the Long Beach and Brooklyn Shi;>yords. other major cuts in civilian employment will Include: Camp Chaffee, Ark., now being used to train recruits, to be closed by April 15, 1950.
